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

As is typically the case following the passing of a popular recording artist, XXXTentacion's music has seen a sharp rise in activity across streaming services.

This was supposed to be Jay Rock's big week. And Nas' big week. And then, out of nowhere, JAY-Z and Beyoncé arrived with a surprise album on a Saturday afternoon, and suddenly, it was their big week. 

However, by Monday afternoon, plans changed. At approximately 3:57 p.m., Florida rapper XXXTentacion (born Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy) was gunned down by two masked men in an armed robbery attempt. He was 20. 

In the aftermath of his sudden and polarizing death, as is typically the case following the passing of a popular recording artist, XXXTentacion's music has seen a sharp rise in activity across streaming services. On Thursday alone, his catalog was streamed nearly 50 million times on Spotify. As such, over the past seven days, three of the 10 most-streamed hip-hop records bear his name ("SAD!" "Moonlight," and "Jocelyn Flores").

5 New Albums You Need to Hear This Week

New albums from Doe Boe, Hotboii, Kweku Flick and more? We have a complete rundown of all the new releases you should make time to hear.

Slipping one spot this week is Chicago upstart Juice WRLD, whose hit single "Lucid Dreams," which samples Sting's 1993 single "Shape of My Heart," backbends one-to-two.

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

  • Not only did XXXTentacion place three songs in the top 10, but if we extended this chart another two positions, he'd also own entries 11 ("changes") and 12 ("Fuck Love"). He is currently the most-consumed artist in the world across Apple Music, Spotify and iTunes.
  • Despite being made available on Spotify two days after it's initial, TIDAL-only release, Beyoncé and JAY-Z's joint release as The Carters, EVERYTHING IS LOVE, failed to place a single track in the top 10. Why? The album is currently only available on Spotify's premium tier, and will not be available to free users until July 2.
  • Over the last four weeks, Kanye West has been a part of 28 songs as either an artist and/or producer, spread across four seven-track projects. With the dust beginning to settle—Teyana Taylor will release the fifth and final seven-track album in the G.O.O.D. Music summer series later today—only "All Mine," taken from West's solo album, ye, remains in the top 10.

The List (all-time streams):

  1. XXXTentacion "SAD!" (291M)
  2. Juice WRLD "Lucid Dreams" (98.3M)
  3. XXXTentacion "Moonlight" (131M)
  4. Post Malone "Better Now" (255M)
  5. XXXTentacion "Jocelyn Flores" (384M)
  6. Cardi B "I Like It" ft. Bad Bunny & J Balvin (226M)
  7. Lil Baby "Yes Indeed" ft. Drake (79.6M)
  8. Drake "Nice For What" (324M)
  9. Kanye West "All Mine" (61.5M)
  10. Drake "I'm Upset" (48.9M)
