I'm a sick fuck, I like when our weekly chart of the 10 most-played hip-hop songs on Spotify has a new No. 1 contender.
That didn't happen this week, though, as Kanye West and Lil Pump's ode to carnal pleasures "I Love It" just barely missed out on the top spot. Once again, Drake's "In My Feelings" reigns supreme, after getting topped by Eminem's Joyner Lucas-featuring "Lucky You" last week. Eminem takes our No. 3 spot this week, followed by our usual recurring cast members.
As always, if you'd prefer the best new songs this week, head to 10 New Songs You Need This Week.
Before we take a look at the complete list, a few friendly observations:
- Kanye West produced five albums in a much-talked-about rollout of "Wyoming" releases earlier this year. And yet, "I Love It," his cheesy, ultra-sexual, memeified collab with Lil Pump, is his biggest opening week this year. In seven days, the record already has more Spotify streams than every song on KIDS SEE GHOSTS other than "Reborn."
- After placing five of the top 10 last week following the release of Kamikaze, Eminem sees only two records holding strong amongst the 10 most popular hip-hop songs in the world.
- Notable milestones: Both Drake's "In My Feelings" and Cardi B's "I Like It" passed the 500-million stream mark on Spotify, while Tyga's "Taste" has crossed the 300-million stream threshold.

- Drake "In My Feelings" (503M)
