Posted by

Kendrick Lamar and SZA’s “All The Stars,” the first single off the TDE-led Black Panther: The Album, has entered the R&B/Hip Hop Single Sales charts this week at #8. Bruno Mars and Cardi B knock Post Malone off his throne with their ’90s-inspired cut “Finesse” at #1 and Fetty Wap’s latest single, “With You,” earns the highest debut for the week ending on January 11.

After dominating the #1 spot for so long, Post Malone’s “Rockstar” featuring 21 Savage has been relegated to #2. Eminem’s Revival track “River” with Ed Sheeren made its way into the Top 10 of the R&B/Hip Hop Single Sales charts at #4 and Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow,” who was at #3 last week, dropped down to #10 this week.
