Our top 10 Quavo songs list digs deep into the music of a Georgia-born rapper known for his contribution to hip hop and trap music scenes. The 1991-born rapper ventured into music in the mid-2000s rising to popularity as a member of the hip hop group Migos. Joining him in Migos were fellow rappers Offset and the late Takeoff (nephew to Quavo). The trio led a successful career as Migos earning multiple accolades including two Grammy Awards nominations.
By the mid-2010s, Migos members had started working on solo musical pursuits. The move eventually culminated in solo albums for each of the members of the group Migos. Notably, Quavo has had quite a successful solo career thanks to his unique flow that has seen him featured on numerous collaborative projects.
A Quick Review of Quavo’s Solo Releases
In June 2017, Quavo released his debut mixtape ATL through New Power Soul. The mixtape saw the rapper work with several producers including Spiffy, The Lab Cook, and Murda Beatz to name a few. While ATL was barely successful in the mainstream, it played a significant role in laying the foundation for Quavo’s solo musical pursuits. However, the mixtape is home to great hits such as “Shine,” “200 000,” and “Trapstar.”
Quavo Huncho, issued in October 2018, marked Quavo’s debut studio album. The album finds the rapper pushing the limits of the trap subgenre. Guest appearances on this album include his fellow mates from Migos, Offset, and Takeoff, Travis Scott, Kid Cudi, Drake, Madonna, 21 Savage, Cardi B, Saweetie, Lil Baby, and Normani among others. The album was a commercial success achieving gold certification in the United States.
Quavo Huncho was also a mainstream success having risen atop the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart. The album also climbed to the second spot on the Billboard 200 Chart and Canadian Albums Chart. Quavo Huncho also graced the UK Albums Chart peaking at number sixteen. “Workin Me,” “Lamb Talk,” “Flip the Switch,” Bubble Gum” and “How Bout That?” are some of the best Quavo songs from the album Quavo Huncho.
Quavo Announces New Album Rocket Power

The song finds the rapper lamenting the loss of his nephew Takeoff.
More to mourning Takeoff, the song leaves the fans of the hip hop group Migos skeptical about its future. In the song “Greatness,” Quavo cites that the group is gone without Takeoff and will never come back again. Away from the sad message channeled by the song, “Greatness” finds Quavo rapping over an impressive trumpet-heavy instrumental which feels unique from anything the rapper has released earlier. The song reached number nineteen on the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 Chart.

The song was composed by Quavo and producer Buddah Bless—the two also handle this song’s production work. “Lamb Talk” finds Quavo flexing an array of automobiles, specifically Lamborghinis as the song’s title suggests.
Quavo’s flow in this song is commendable—his adlibs also add some extra allure to this track.
