On our Top Rap Chart, the graduation of Wiz Khlaifa's “Work Hard, Play Hard” and The Throne's “No Church in the Wild”to our Top Hip Hop and R&B Chart clears the way for French Montana's “Pop That” and Maybach Music Group's “Power Circle” to debut on top. Also new this week, XV's “AaaHH! Real Monsters” claims 13th. Descending from our Top Picks are records by Kendrick Lamar, DJ Khaled and more.

On the Top R&B/Pop Chart, front-runners Jay Sean (with “I'm All Yours”) and Flo Rida (with “Run”) make the jump to our Top Picks. Replacing them on top are Chris Breezy's “What Your Girl Like” (formerly fourth) and Frank Ocean's “Pyramids,” (formerly seventh). New additions to the chart come courtesy of Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, Jeremih and Trey Songz.
