THE BALLSTREET JOURNAL

The Final Four is all set, and North Carolina is the only team I have left in my bracket. It has been a fun tournament to watch, and I still don't feel like there is a clear-cut favorite. My money is still on North Carolina, with their size and speed.

Congrats are in order for Sujit Kundu and Epic as they take Travis Scott’s "Goosebumps" (Grand Hustle) # 1. It was up 400 spins. Next up for them is DJ Khaled f/Beyoncé and Jay Z’s "Shining." It moves inside the top 10 this week after gaining another 265 spins. Future f/Rihanna’s "Selfish" (A1/Freebandz) climbs #23-19, adding 320 spins to the total. He has another track that is really picking up steam, "Mask Off." It’s at #50, up 165 spins. This is likely the next single, but the focus is still on "Selfish." Rick Ross’ “I Think She Like Me” comes in at #49, and 21 Savage & Metro Boomin’s “No Heart” is at #59.

RCA’s Inca and Lori G have Chris Brown’s “Party” moving #4-2, gaining 190 spins. Khalid’s “Location” (Right Hand Music) continues to really develop, as it sees another 345-spin increase, and moves to #11. Make sure you check out the remix! They are impacting ZAYN f/PARTYNEXTDOOR’s “Still Got Time” this week.

Columbia’s Ayelet Schiffman and James White have Russ’ “Losin Control” climbing to #13, thanks to a 285-spin increase. The goal is top 10 in the next few weeks. Right behind is Calvin Harris f/Frank Ocean and Migos’ “Slide.” This one is up 440 spins, and continues to see stations move it to sub-power rotations. They impacted Reach’s Lecrae last week, and “Blessings” is already at #48. It was up 95 spins, and continues to build at Urban. Next up is Ayo & Teo’s “Rolex.” This is a big buzz record, with great sales. It is currently at #66.

The Republic crew of Gary Spangler and Davey Dee welcome Post Malone’s “Congratulations” into the top 15. Up 315 spins, it continues to develop each week. Marian Hill’s “Down” (Photo Finish) is at #16, and Nicki Minaj f/Drake and Lil Wayne’s “No Frauds” continues to be the hottest record at the format. It moves to #24, and gains 765 spins, the most of any record this week. They debut Julia Michaels’ “Issues” this week at #39. Drake’s “Passionfruit” (YMCMB) sees radio jump on board to the tune of a 370-spin increase. His “Portland” f/Quavo and Travis Scott is also a track that radio is really into, and that was up 245 spins. (The label has not yet decided on an “official” first track). They are impacting cast of Star’s “Ain’t About What You Got,” which will be featured in the series’ season finale.

Def Jam’s Rick Sackheim and Noah Sheer continue to develop Big Sean’s “Moves.” It is currently at #17, and is up 180 spins. Jeremih f/Chris Brown’s “I Think of You” holds at #28, gaining 45 spins. Bibi Bourelly’s “Ballin” debuts this week at #40. She was up 90 spins. 2 Chains f/Gucci Mane & Quavo’s “Good Drank” slides up to #44, while Axwell^Ingrosso f/Kid Ink’s “I Love You” is now at #52. It was up triple digits, and is also growing at Top 40.

Glassnote’s Childish Gambino “Redbone” has its best week ever. It was up over 250 spins, and comes in at #31. This has been a steady climb, but the record is real and so is the reaction.

Warner Bros.Lee L’Heureux has Jason Derulo f/Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign’s “Swalla” moving to #27 this week. He was up a healthy 215 spins, and has the top 25 in his sights.
