After spending 10 impressive weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100, Drake‘s In My Feeling was finally knocked off its throne, surpassed by Maroon 5’s Girls Like You, featuring Cardi B – the first time in 34-weeks a non-rap song has been atop the charts. This comes fresh off the news that Maroon 5 will be headlining the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show.
The Hot 100’s Top 10 also saw a few more changes this week, as Eminem’s Killshot skyrocketed to No. 3, the Detroit rapper’s 20th appearance in the top 10, tying him with Lil Wayne for third-most among all rappers, behind only Jay-Z (21) and Drake (31).
The second addition to the Top 10, rising from 11 to 10, is 5 Seconds of Summer’s Youngblood, the hot new single off of the Austrian band’s third studio album released June 2018. Billboard tweeted a picture of the Hot 100’s Top 10 yesterday.

The Greatest Rappers of All Time
15. Lauryn Hill
AKA: L Boogie
Region: East Coast
Resume: The Score (The Fugees) (1996)
Lauryn Hill may be most well known for her multi-platinum 1998 album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill but her early work with Fugees already had her in contention for the best female rapper of all time. Hailing from South Orange, New Jersey, Hill flirted with acting in the early 90s and landed roles on the TV show As the World Turns and the 1993 film Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit where she showcased her soulful singing skills. She joined the Fugees shortly after and released the albums Blunted on Reality in 1994 and the Grammy Award-winning The Score in 1996.
Lauryn’s ability to sing beautifully, combined with a steady flow of sharply delivered rhymes, makes her a talent the likes of which we’ve never seen before or since. Her wide array of skills are perhaps best displayed with her work on the track “Ready Or Not” where she is not only responsible for one of the 90s most memorable hooks, but also raps with the distinctive flow that has her “defecating on the microphone.” If not for her public breakdown in the late 90s and a subsequent prison stint, Lauryn Hill would most likely have been on track to become the greatest selling female artist of all time.
