Stop me when you have heard this before: Drake is a pretty big artist. He currently has FOUR records in the top 10. Four… Most labels don’t have four  separate artists in the top 15. I cannot remember a time in recent history that an artist has dominated the charts this consistently for this long.

Epic’s Sujit Kundu is working the DJ Khaled f/ Drake “For Free”(We The Best) which is currently at #1. Sujit also has Fifth Harmony’s “All In My Head (Flex)” (SYCO) at #11, as well as the latest DJ Khaled f/ Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown’s “Do You Mind” debuting at #34, gaining 230 spins. Young Thug & Travis $cott’s “Pick Up The Phone” comes in at #43, while Jidenna’s “Little Bit More” is at #55. They are impacting Meghan Trainor f/Yo Gotti’s “Better ” this week. Next week Sujit is celebrating his 25th birthday for the 16th time. His birthday party is a who’s who of the DJ world, and entertainment in general. If you are lucky enough to be on the list, be ready for a night of debauchery.

Republic’s Gary Spangler, Davey Dee and Stef Cole have Drake f/Rihanna’s “Too Good” moving 10-7, gaining 540 spins. They also have Marc E. Bassy f/G-Eazy’s “You & Me” at #13, and Ariana Grande’s “Into You” at #18, tacking on 200 more spins. Kungs & Cookin’ on 3 Burners’ “This Girl” (Casablanca) comes in at #31 after a 150-spin increase this week. Nick Jonas f/Ty Dolla $ign’s “Bacon” (Island) lands at #39, while Belly f/Kehlani’s “You” (Roc Nation) moves to #48.

Columbia’s Ayelet Schiffman and James White see The Chainsmokers f/Halsey’s “Closer” (Disruptor) leap 38-26 this week, after a 450-spin increase. Beyonce’s “Hold Up” gains 200 spins, and comes in at #54 this week. They are impacting a new artist this week by the name of Russ. His single is “What They Want.” He has done a number of sold out shows on the East and West coasts, and the buzz is tremendous. He already has 180 spins on the single, with an increase of 90 this week.

Over at Def Jam, Rick Sackheim, Noah Sheer and Scott Maness have Major Lazer f/ Justin Bieber and MO’s “Cold Water” (Mad Decent) flying up the chart. It climbs 15-12, gaining more than 315 spins this week. Not far behind, at #15, is YG f/Drake’s “Why You Always Hatin’.” It gains 80 spins. Kanye West f/Kid Cudi’s “Father Stretch My Hands” (G.O.O.D.)is at #17. This was up 235 spins. Mike Will Made-It f/Rihanna’s “Nothing Is Promised” (Westbury Road/Interscope) is at #38, gaining 50 spins, and Logic’s “Flexicution” is at #50. They are impacting Desiigner’s “Tiimmy Turner” (G.O.O.D.) this week. It is already at #63 on the chart.

The crew of Inca and Lori G at RCA have both Usher’s “No Limit” (#8 on the chart) and Sia “Cheap Thrills” (Monkey Puzzle) at #10. There is a remix of the Usher f/Travis $cott, Master P, 2 Chainz and Gucci Mane that leaked this week. Bryson Tiller’s “Sorry Not Sorry” gains 145 spins, and is at #29 this week. Kid Ink f/Jeremih’s “Nasty” lands at #33, up 65 spins, while Tinashe’s “Superlove” just misses the chart at #42, gaining 145 spins.
