As previously reported, Rae Sremmurd leads the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Dec. 24) for a fifth week with "Black Beatles," featuring Gucci Mane. Plus, Machine Gun Kelly and Camila Cabello's "Bad Things" bounds into the top 10, soaring 17-10, and Rihanna's "Love on the Brain" becomes her 40th top 20 Hot 100 hit.
Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj notches her 70th Hot 100 entry with a No. 65 debut (the chart's highest of the week) for "Black Barbies." The track is Minaj's reworking of "Black Beatles"; the songs share the same writers, Khalif "Swae Lee" and Aaquil "Slim Jxmmi" Brown, Gucci Mane and Mike WiLL Made-It, with the addition of Minaj on "Barbies."
"Barbies" was originally made available in an unfinished version on SoundCloud on Nov. 15; once finalized, it was released commercially Nov. 30.
