Alkaline’s latest effort received the lion’s share of the spotlight, amassing over 236,000 streams to sit comfortably at the summit of YouTube Beats.

‘Toast’ gained over 197,000 streams this week for second place, followed closely by comeback kid Munga Honorable’s new hit ‘Nah Mad (Ova Nuh Gyal’ with over 174,000 streams for third.
