Our friend Nick Cannon just rolled out the latest episode of Cannon’s Countdown, and we’re airing it here! Check back each weekend for the countdown in full and be sure to check out his site for daily updates on everything you need to know.
What up, ya’ll? What it do?! Welcome back to the hottest, dopest, and flyest countdown in the land. Last week we saw Kanye and Jay top things off, can they hold on to the throne for another week? Or, did Mrs. Z snatch the top spot from her king with her hot single “Party” with J. Cole? Gotta stick around and find out!
Before we get into this week’s countdown, I want to take you back a few years with this week’s throwback jam: Jagged Edge’s ’90s hit “Where The Party At?”…..
And one more treat: this song did not make the countdown, but I think it will be the “Next To Chart”: Monica’s “Until Its Gone”…
