Not willing to drop from the top, Flo Rida is still maintaining his position above all others in this week’s Hip Hop Digital Sales charts. Maroon 5 have now dropped to 15 overall with their Wiz Khalifa assisted “Payphone.” Kanye West and the G.O.O.D. fellas managed to continue their ride as part of the top 20 with “Mercy” and T.I. has joined the race with “Go Get It.” 

Flo Rida Stays On Top Of The Charts

Flo Rida has been consistently at the top for weeks with “Whistle” and that has not changed much. The only thing that has changed is that he’s not just the top Hip Hop artist on the digital sales chart; he’s the top artist overall. While “Whistle” remains the top digital download overall, his “Wild Ones” cut is still in the Top 30, showing Flo’s staying power in this department.   

Kanye West Holds Steady With “Mercy,” Enters With “New God Flow”   

Upon the unveiling of G.O.O.D. Music’s Complex cover, the crew has maintained their success with “Mercy.” The track did drop but only two slots to #19 from last week’s #17. A bigger drop came from his collaborative cut with DJ Khaled. Their track “I Wish You Would” dropped to #119. However, his track with Pusha T, “New God Flow” has given him new life on the charts with yet another placement, this on at #133 in its first week. It’s not as if West needed that. He already has other collaborations in the top 200, including “Niggas in Paris” (#136) and “No Church in the Wild” (#191).
