10 Most-Played Hip-Hop Songs on Spotify This Week

Gambino reigns.
Publish date:

As Childish Gambino's "This Is America" is currently the No. 1 song in the country, it's no surprise that the polarizing single was the most-played song on Spotify this week. 

Elsewhere on the chart, we see the return of BlocBoy JB's Drake-assisted "Look Alive," following the release of the Memphis rapper's Simi project, as well as Cardi B's "I Like It," as Travis Scott's "Watch" and Post Malone's "Rich & Sad" drop off from last week

Before we take a look at the complete list, a few friendly observations:

  1. Despite relinquishing the top spot, Post Malone's beerbongs & bentleys album is still a streaming monster, holding down half of the chart. 
  2. Drake's "Nice For What" has amassed 209 million Spotify streams, only his 14th song to surpass the 200-million mark. "God's Plan," at 724 million streams, is set to overtake "Hotline Bling" (725 million) this week to become Drake's third-most-played song on the service after "One Dance" and Rihanna's "Work."
  3. Cardi B returns to the top 10, along with Bad Bunny and J Balvin, with "I Like It," the third song (following pre-release singles "Bodak Yellow" and "Bartier Cardi") to pass the 100-million mark from her excellent debut album, Invasion of Privacy

The List (all-time streams):

  1. Childish Gambino "This Is America" (56.3M)
  2. Drake "Nice For What" (209M)
  3. Post Malone "Better Now" (108M)
  4. Post Malone "Psycho" ft. Ty Dolla $ign (381M)
