Republic has three tracks screaming up to the top, as Ariana Grande's "Side To Side" f/ Nicki Minaj, Drake's "Fake Love" (YMCMB) and Amine's "Caroline" all grow quickly inside the Top 10, with each up over 300 spins. Rihanna's "Love On The Brain" (Westbury Road/Roc Nation/Def Jam) and Partynextdoor's "Not Nice" (OVO/Warner Bros.) will see nice-sized increases. Big Sean's "Bounce Back" (G.O.O.D./Def Jam) and Trey Songz' "Push On Me" (Motown/Capitol) continue to ascend. Look for Alessia Cara's "Scars To Your Beautiful" and 21 Savage & Metro Boomin's "X" f/ Future (Slaughter Gang/Red/Epic) to debut this week.
