So far, “Summer Sixteen” really has been the season of Drake. His “One Dance” (YMCMB/Republic), which features Wizkid and Kyla, has been the #1 song for a month and could easily stay there another week. Sales and downloads have been through the roof and are showing no signs of slowing down. Plus, his newest track, “Controlla,” rockets #34-23 this week, gaining 430 spins. “Too Good”—featuring Rihanna—is another killer track from Views that a number of stations are playing and could easily end up as another single. Republic’s Gary Spangler, Davey Dee, and Stef Cole also have Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” at #13, as well as Nick Jonas f/Tove Lo’s “Close” at #24. Post Malone’s “Go Flex” climbs to #32, gaining 80 spins. And Marc E. Bassy f/G-Eazy’s “You & Me,” which went up 240 spins, just misses the chart at #42. They’re impacting Drake’s “Controlla” this week, along with T.I. f/Marsha Ambrosius’ “Dope” (Grand Hustle/Roc Nation), which debuts at #37, up 235 spins. Next week, they’ll impact S-8ighty’s “Halfway.”

Columbia’s Ayelet Schiffman and James White have The Chainsmokers f/Daya’s “Don’t Let Me Down” (Disruptor) at #3, up 435 spins, and they plan to take it #1 in the next three weeks. Beyoncé’s “Sorry” moves to #12 and tacks on 300+ spins. Calvin Harris f/Rihanna’s “This Is What You Came For” gains 290 spins to move #20-16. Meanwhile, the Empire cast’s “Look But Don’t Touch” sees a 115+-spin increase, allowing it to move to #35 this week. They’re impacting Adele’s “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” (XL) this week, and are targeting the pop-leaners first. This is the first Adele song with tempo, and it’s really taking off at Top 40.

Epic’s Sujit Kundu is firing on cylinders and continues to deliver great music. Kent Jones’ “Don’t Mind” (We The Best) vaults #7-4, adding 730 spins for the biggest increase of the week. This is on pace to be a contender for the next #1. Future f/The Weeknd’s “Low Life” (A1/Freebandz) is Top 10, gaining 190 spins, and they just impacted Future Hendrix’s new track, “Wicked,” as it moves to #47, gaining 80 spins. Fifth Harmony’s “All in My Head” (SYCO) gains 300 spins and just misses the chart, but it should debut in a lofty spot this coming week. Meghan Trainor’s “Me Too” is picking up steam with a 100 new spins and is now #51. They also dropped DJ Khaled f/Drake’s new one, “For Free” (We The Best), which gained 135 spins in just TWO days! Look for it to climb the chart quickly.

Def Jam’s Rick Sackheim, Noah Sheer and Scott Maness are trying to push Desiigner’s “Panda” (G.O.O.D. Music) into the #1 spot, but that one’s been behind the gale force winds of Drake for three weeks, leaving it stuck at #2.  Spins are up triple-digits though, so this looks like the week that they’ll really gun for the top. They also have Rihanna’s “Needed Me” (Westbury Road/Roc Nation) at #7, gaining 440 spins. YG f/Drake’s “Why You Always Hatin” climbs to #48, adding 130 spins. The next single for Jeremih is “Pass Dat,” which they’ll be impacting in the next few weeks. Kanye’s “Father Stretch My Hands” (G.O.O.D.) is the next single from TLOP and starting to get some early buzz. The footage of Yeezus attempting to throw a “pop-up” party in NYC was insane, by the way. There’s no doubt he’s a superstar!

RCA’s Inca and Lori G take Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling” inside the Top 10. It gains 450 spins and shows no signs of slowing down. G-Eazy f/Chris Brown’s “Drifting” moves to #19, gaining 145 spins. They debut Alicia Keys’ “In Common” this week at #40 with a gain of 105 spins. And ZAYN’s “Wrong” is impacting this week.

John Strazza and RECORDS have Trinidad James’ “Just A Lil’ Thick” jumping #26-20, up 310 spins, and it continues to grab new believers each week.

Dixie Tipton and Capitol are still growing Niykee Heaton f/Migos’ song, “Bad Intentions,” which was up another 80 spins and climbs to #44.
