Hip Hop Single Sales: Drake, The Weeknd & Macklemore

Drake’s name can be seen at #1, #7 and #10 on the chart this week.

There are a few changes to the R&B/Hip Hop single sales chart this week with Drake’s “Hotline Bling” taking the top spot once again. Elsewhere, Alessia Cara comes in at #6 on the R&B/Hip Hop chart with her single “Here” and lastly, Nelly and Fetty Wap both fall out of the Top 10 while Drake’s “Right Hand” re-enters.

Drake’s “Hotline Bling” Retakes #1 Spot

After being knocked off the top by The Weeknd last week, a 29% increase in sales, mixed with a 41% decrease in sales for his closest competitor, means that Drake’s “Hotline Bling” again sits atop of the chart this week. During the seven days leading to October 22, the single sold 152,943 units taking its total sales since its official release to 957,014.

The Weeknd Slips To #2

As previously mentioned, a 41% decrease in sales for The Weeknd’s single “The Hills” means it lands at #2 on the chart this week. During the seven days leading to October 22, the cut sold 110,651 units.

Macklemore Refuses To Budge From #3

For a third consecutive week, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ “Downtown” lands at #3 on the R&B/Hip Hop single sales chart. The cut, which sparked controversy upon its release, sold 71,726 units during the seven days leading to October 22.
