Hip Hop Single Sales: Drake Takes Over & Nicki Minaj Plummets

After charting high with her #3PackFromParis last week, Nicki Minaj took a drastic drop on the Digital Genre R&B/Hip-Hop sales chart ending March 23, 2017.
Meanwhile, songs from Drake’s More Life project took over one fifth of the chart, but didn’t do enough to prevent Bruno Mars from claiming another #1.

Bruno Mars Retakes #1

Hawaiian pop star Bruno Mars reclaims his spot at #1 on the Single Sales chart with a slight uptick in sales for “That’s What I Like” and also lands in #4 with “24K Magic.” Both tracks are in their 18th week on the chart.

The Weeknd’s Starboy single “I Feel It Coming” rises to #2 and Kyle’s “iSpy” with Lil Yachty continues its ascent with the #3 spot.

Drake’s More Life Takeover

Toronto superstar Drake was all over last week’s sales chart with 23 entries — mostly from his new More Life playlist project. The highest entry was “Portland,” which features Quavo and Travis Scott, coming in at #5.
Drake also broke records on the Hot 100, becoming the solo artist with the most overall entries on that chart, with 154, as well as the most concurrent songs in a week, with 24.

Nicki Minaj’s #3PackFromParis Falls Off

Nicki Minaj, who held three of the Top 5 spots on last week’s chart, sees her #3PackFromParis drop, with “No Frauds” plummeting from #1 to #27 with an 87% reduction in sales and the Lil Wayne-featuring “Changed It” going from #5 to #89. “Regret In Your Tears” didn’t place on the latest chart after debuting at #4 the previous week. Her week-over-week declines were the biggest on the chart.
Her song with David Guetta and Lil Wayne debuted at #87.
