Welcome to the Booth's Top Hip Hop and R&B Chart! As always, your feedback has determined which songs made the cut. Each chart’s lineup is calculated using a special DJBooth Formula that takes into account member ratings and reviews as well as features’ overall popularity.
*Tyga's "King & Queens" tumbles from first to fifth this week, and last week's runner-up, Rihanna's "Birthday Cake," moves up to claim first. Formerly third, J. Cole's "Grew Up Fast" claims to second.
*Mac Miller scores the sole new addition to the chart, debuting in seventh with "Loud."
*Up from last week's Rap Chart, Nicki Minaj's "Roman Reloaded," Slaughterhouse's "Hammer Dance," Diggy Simmons' "88" and Rick Ross' "High Definition" come in third, eleventh, 18th and 20th.
