Every Friday morning we look over Spotify numbers from the previous seven days, hoping, wishing and praying for an influx of new songs to make this chart.
Something new. Anything new.
And every week, we're disappointed.
If you're disappointed too, we recommend you head over to 10 New Songs You Need This Week. If not, if you're cool with the same 'ol same 'ol, by all means, continue reading for the complete list and a few friendly observations.
- Last week, XXXTENTACION placed only one song on this chart ("Arms Around You"), but following the release of his posthumous album Skins, that number jumps to four, with album tracks "whoa (mind in awe)" and "BAD!" being joined by ? album single "SAD!" That X's music continues to rise in popularity despite his confessing to stabbing eight people, making a women “scared for her life,” and threatening to “kill that bitch” in a recording obtained by Pitchfork following his death this past June, proves that for most of his audience, separating the "art" from the artist is a fairly easy decision.
- Sheck Wes' hit single "Mo Bamba" was streamed 14 million times this past week, bringing its all-time total to just north of 233 million. Despite the song's incredible success, however, the project that houses the record, Mudboy, has been a total flop. Combined, the album's 13 other tracks, including singles "Live Sheck Wes" and "Chippi Chippi," have only been played 41.8 million times. Ouch.
- With Bad Bunny's "MIA" single crossing the 250 million stream mark this past week, Drake has now tallied a whopping eight records to achieve this threshold in 2018.

- Bad Bunny "MIA" ft. Drake (254M)
- Travis Scott "SICKO MODE" (391M)
- Post Malone & Swae Lee "Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse)" (180M)
