THE BALLSTREET JOURNAL

Epic’s Sujit Kundu is a very happy man. Not only is Yo Gotti “Down in the DM” now at #4, but he also has the biggest debut and the Most Increased record this week with Fifth Harmony f/Ty Dolla $ign’s “Work From Home” (SYCO), which—at #30—was up 600+ spins. Future f/The Weeknd’s “Low Life” (A1/Freebandz) debuted at #36, after an increase of 380 spins. Meghan Trainor’s “NO” will be next up on the chart for them. That one was up 335 spins, and came in at #46, while already on the building chart at #38. Both FH and Meghan are locked in the iTunes Top 5 and are rocketing up the chart at Top 40 radio as well. Already huge at Shazam, Zara Larsson & MNEK’s “Never Forget You”—another Top 15 record at Pop—is at #44, just below the chart. That one also looks like it’ll debut this coming week.


Def Jam’s Rick Sackheim, Noah Sheer and Scott Maness still own the #1 record with Rihanna f/Drake’s “Work,” which was up 335 spins. Jeremih’s “Oui” moves to #8, thanks to a 220-spin increase. DJ Mustard’s “Whole Lotta Lovin” comes in at #32, up 65 spins, and Alessia Cara’s “Wild Things” holds at #38. They debuted Justin Bieber’s “Company” (RBMG) at #39, thanks in large part to an increase of 415 spins. There’s a great buzz surrounding Desiigner “Panda,” which is already at #50 and grabbing new stations each week.

Over at Republic, Gary Spangler, Davey Dee and Stef Cole take Belly f/The Weeknd’s “Might Not” into the Top 10; it’s at #9, up 330 spins. Zendaya f/Chris Brown’s “Something New” leaps #20-14, tacking on 360 spins, while The Weeknd’s “Acquainted” (XO) jumps #23-18, grabbing 400 new spins. Mike Posner’s “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” (Island) continues to motor up the chart, as it moves to #19 this week and sees a 320-spin increase, while showing no signs of slowing down. Drake’s “Summer Sixteen” (YMCMB) moves inside the Top 25, adding 350 new spins to his total. They’re impacting Keke Palmer f/Jeremih’s “Enemizes” (Island) next week.

RCA’s Inca and Lori G have G-Eazy f/Bebe Rexha’s “Me, Myself and I” at #2 and Chris Brown’s “Back to Sleep” at # 7, up 190 spins. Kid Ink f/Fetty Wap’s “Promise”—at #11, up 110 spins—is knocking on the Top 10’s door. Meanwhile, ZAYN’s “PILLOWTALK” continues to develop nicely, sliding to #22 this week with 170 spins, following Top 40’s lead. And Bryson Tiller’s “Exchange” shoots #34-28, with the help of a 290-spin increase. while A$AP Ferg’s “New Level” (#53) continues to develop.

Columbia’s Ayelet Schiffman and James White have The Chainsmokers f/Rozes’ “Roses” (Disruptor) at #6 this week, up 100 spins. The goal is to hit the Top 5, and then come with the follow-up, “Don’t Let Me Down,” which features Daya. The Internet’s “Girl” (Odd Future) moves #32-29, up 50 spins, while J. Cole’s “Love Yourz” (Roc Nation) creeps up to #35.


Capitol’s Dixie Tipton is a week away from debuting Young Greatness’ “Moolah,” which was up 80 spins, and is now at #45.

And based on the enormous sales of Lukas Graham “7 Years,” Lee L’Heureux and Warner Bros. are going to start to seed this record out to the pop-leaning stations. It sounds a bit left of center, but there are already a handful of stations playing it. We played Adele, right? BTW, congrats to Lee, who has a brand new baby!
