In a historic week for The Weeknd on the U.S.-based Billboard Hot 100, the Canadian superstar's new single "Take My Breath" is the highest debut on the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts, at Nos. 5 and 7, respectively. It's the only arrival in the top 40 of either tally, and one of only two songs to debut simultaneously on both rankings dated Aug. 21.
Collaboration in hip-hop isn't just prevalent, it's ubiquitous. Recent releases by Tyler, the Creator, Migos, and Polo G, among others, continue the tradition of acts in the genre spotlighting fellow rap stars. The same goes for British rappers such as Dave, Skepta and Stormzy.
