It may be the week of the Scorpion, but XXXTentacion continues to dominate Spotify. Following the late Miami rapper's sudden and polarizing murder on June 18, streaming of his music continues to trend upward as he now holds four of the 10 most-played hip-hop records over the past seven days.
Elsewhere, Juice WRLD—who is currently taking over with a potent brand of emo rap—holds onto the No. 2 spot with is hit single "Lucid Dreams," Cardi B's Bad Bunny and J Balvin—assisted smash "I Like It" breaks into the top four after months of bubbling near the bottom of the top 10, and Tyga has a viable song of the summer contender on his hands.
Before we take a look at the complete list, a few friendly observations:
How EKKSTACY Beat Writer’s Block to Make His Best Album
Pop anti-hero EKKSTACY finds his aggressive voice on his new album, 'misery.' He breaks down his journey through writer's block for Audiomack World.
- With the Offset-assisted "Taste" creeping in at No. 9, Tyga is currently enjoying his biggest hit since 2015's "Ayo."
- With Kanye's "All Mine" bowing out, nearly one week out from the release of Teyana Taylor's K.T.S.E., not a single song from the Wyoming sessions summer album series appears in the top 10. We still ranked all 36 songs, though.
- No Carters? Beyoncé and JAY-Z's collaborative LP EVERYTHING IS LOVE remains behind the Spotify Premium wall.
