DJBooth Chart Recap: Week of 05/06/12

Posted 4 years ago by
New York, N.Y. -- This week on The DJBooth's Top Hip Hop and R&B Chart, G.O.O.D. Music's stint on top comes to an end, with Brandy's “Put It Down” graduating from our R&B/Pop Chart to unseat “Mercy” in first. No new features debut in the lineup, but additional Rap and R&B/Pop graduates come courtesy of Wiz Khalifa, Nas, Kid CuDi and more.

On our Top Rap Chart, Wiz Khalifa's “Work Hard, Play Hard” and Nas' “Daughters” make the jump to our Top Hip Hop and R&B Chart, clearing the way for 2 Chainz' “No Lie” and Chief Keef's “I Don't Like (Remix)” to debut on top. Also new this week are records by 50 Cent, CyHi and Fat Joe. Nas' “The Don” and Big K.R.I.T.'s “4EvaNaDay Theme” reemerge after time away from our charts.

On the Top R&B/Pop Chart, Brandy's “Put It Down” and Jay Sean's “I'm All Yours” make the leap to our Top Hip Hop and R&B lineup. The Far East Movement's “Dirty Bass” (a new addition) and Flo Rida's “Whistle” (formerly fourth) take their place. Additional cuts by Leron Young and iFFY The Bad Man debut in the lineup, and records from Rihanna and Akon reemerge after time away from the charts.

On the DJBooth's Top Independent Hip Hop Chart, BRKF$T Club retain their hold on first with "The Fellowship," but J NICS' "Blood Money" tumbles from second all the way to 18th. Taking the latter's place is "I'm in Here," a new feature from Chris Webby. All in all, 13 fresh features earn spots on the chart, among them a DJBooth-exclusive world premiere from Kap Kallous & Vikto Beats.
