So, we’ve all been waiting for Views. Well, maybe not all of us, but quite a few of us. The 6 God has that ability to make you pay attention, to keep the conversation going for months. The tracks on this list may not have had quite the same level of anticipation, but they certainly should keep you talking all the same. The countdown features some of Drake’s confidence, some of his rapping skills, and some of his melancholic emotionality. So, if you’re having a hard time getting Apple Music to load, enjoy this instead.

10. Murph Watkins – “On Me”

Murph Watkins, aka Baby Juug, has more of his vamped, flamboyant flow to offer via “On Me”, produced by Rob Dinero. The last time we heard from the Chicago rapper was on the collaborative Goldie & Slim EP with longtime collaborator Wheatie. The new track doesn’t venture far off from the EP’s chill and ambient with feather-light piano flourishes and woozy, liquid synths. “On Me” boasts eerie production that coalesces with Juug’s hungover drawl and rapid-fire delivery as he roams around Chicago’s streets. The track does boast some pop leanings with Watkins’ party hooks: “I’m ridin’ round with like 50 swishas on me/ I’m a hood genie got 50 wishes on me.” —Alejandra Ramirez
