It’s been over six years since Teyana Taylor released her debut single “Google me,” via Pharrell’s Star Trak imprint. Making her way through all the label politics and transitions, and finding a new home with Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music label, the singer-songwriter's latest offering is harvesting a lot of attention from fans. “Maybe,” featuring Pusha T and Yo Gotti, takes the top spot on Singersroom’s Top 10 Most Streamed Independent Singles of the week (Week ending May 24th). Labeled to have one of the best bodies in R&B, the steamy single seems to be just what the doctor ordered for Teyana and her growing fan base.

Michelle Williams secures the runner-up position with her Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, and Solange-assisted single “Say Yes!” The reggae-tinged song has the former Destiny’s Child members praising a higher power and fans are buying in. R&B crooner Joe rounds out the top three with his latest offering “Dilemma.”

Last week standout, Chi-Town newcomer Tink, who has already been swooped up by Timbaland as his next big project, slips to the tenth spot with her Jeremih-assisted single “Don’t Tell Nobody,” a feisty record that sees her giving a cheating beau an aggressive verbal scolding.

Click below to see where Kelly Price, Tiffany Evans, Havok Jones, and more landed on Singersroom’s Top 10 Most Streamed Independent Singles of The Week.

There is something about his voice and lyrics. The new comer by the name of Rob Milton, who we stumbled upon at SOB's R.A.W., has a sound that is as refreshing as lemonade in the summer time. It's relaxing and real. Check out this new guy Rob Milton with the new joint "Let It Go".

Following the large success of their collaboration singles "Golden" and "Move Me", acclaimed Austin, TX songstress Mélat and the popular Delicious Vinyl producer Jansport J link up again for "Fanclub", a love song from a unique perspective of admiration over a boom-bap beat with plucking strings and quirky samples.

Tink - Dont Tell Nobody ft. Jeremih

Tink – Dont Tell Nobody ft. Jeremih

With Timbaland on board, you’ll probably be hearing much more from the Chicago artist, and it begins here, with fellow Chicagoan Jeremih on “Don’t Tell Nobody.” The cut has Tink reprimanding her cheating dude (played by Jeremih), and he doesn’t deny the claims, all he asks is that she doesn’t spill the beans.
