Exciting week in the world of sports as we crowned a new NCAA National Champion with the North Carolina Tar Heels. It wasn’t a pretty game, with poor shooting and sloppy play. But the Heels found a way to get it done. Also, baseball season is now officially underway. The Baltimore Orioles won their first game, and the Yankees lost their season opener. The Cubs did as well, so let’s hope this is a sign of things to come.
Well, it took a lot of hard work and effort, but a congrats are in order for RCA’s Inca and Lori G (right), who muscle Chris Brown “Party” to #1 this week! It was up 480 spins. Next up is Khalid “Location” (Right Hand Music), which is #11 after gaining 280 spins. They just impacted the ZAYN f/PARTYNEXTDOOR “Still Got Time” and it comes in at #65. It was up 110 spins, and is looking to build on the momentum of the top 40 success. They are impacting Goldlink f/Brent Faiyaz and Shy Glizzy’s “Crew” this week.
Epic’s Sujit Kundu is now focused on getting DJ Khaled f/Beyonce and Jay Z’s “Shining” (We The Best) to the top. This week it moves #10-7, gaining a VERY impressive 510 spins. Future f/Rihanna’s “Selfish” (A1/Freebandz) climbs to #16, adding an additional 235 spins to his total. He also has “Mask Off,” which was up 200 spins, and just misses debuting. Look for it to be on the chart next week. 21 Savage and Metro Boomin’s “No Heart” comes in at #58.
Republic’s Gary Spangler and Davey Dee have Post Malone’s “Congratulations” at #15, gaining 240 spins. Nicki Minaj f/Drake and Lil Wayne’s “No Frauds” (YMCMB) grabs another 420 spins, which puts them inside the Top 20 this week. Julia Michaels’ “Issues” moves to #38, while Lorde’s “Greenlight” (Lava) slides up to #55. Star Cast’s “Ain’t About What You Got” (Fox) was up 90 spins, and it is just getting started. They are impacting three records this week. Drake has two new records that are on fire, as “Passionfruit” (YMCMB) is already at #25. It was the highest debut this week, and sees an increase of 800 spins. His other track, “Portland,” is at #51, up 80 spins. They also have Amine’s “Redmercedes” going this week.
Def Jam’s Rick Sackheim and Noah Sheer welcome Big Sean’s “Moves” (G.O.O.D.) into the top 15. He was up 315 spins. Jeremih’s “I Think of You” is at #29, and Bibi Bourelly’s “Ballin” is at #41. Axwell^Ingrosso f/Kid Ink’s “I Love You” is at #52. Iggy Azalea’s “Mo Bounce” is off to a great start as she is up 125 spins going into her official impact week.
Columbia’s Ayelet Schiffman and James White see Russ’ “Losin Control” climb to #12 this week. He was up 255 spins, and the Shazam and streaming numbers continue to grow as stations move it up in rotation. Right behind is Calvin Harris f/Frank Ocean and Migos “Slide.” This was up 320 spins, and the momentum continues to build. Lecrae f/Ty Dolla $ign’s “Blessings” was up 170 spins, and comes in at #47. This is sure to debut next week. The same goes for The Chainsmokers & Coldplay’s “Something Just Like This” (Disruptor). It sees a 125-spin increase, putting it at #42 for the week. They are impacting Ayo & Teo’s “Rolex” this week. It is up 90 spins, and has a very nice buzz surrounding it.
Are you playing “Redbone” from Glassnote’s Childish Gambino yet? It climbs to #27, and was up another 240 spins. This is a multi-format record that just continues to develop when and where it is played.
Lee L’Heureux and Warner Bros. have Jason Derulo f/Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign’s “Swalla” (Beluga Heights) up 190 spins and looking to break into the Top 20 this week. The streaming numbers shot up this week, and he saw 22m YouTube views in one week.
