THE BALLSTREET JOURNAL

When I woke up to horrifying news of the mass murder in Las Vegas, I found that words couldn’t express how sad and senseless a cowardly attack like this is. Hundreds and hundreds of victims and families will be scarred forever. I pray that atrocities like this will stop. Music and concerts are meant to bring joy and happiness to the listeners. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected.

Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” (KSR/Atlantic) remains the #1 record this week.

RCA’s Inca and Lori G have SZA f/Travis Scott’s “Love Galore” (TDE) at #3 this week, up 120 spins. Khalid’s “Young, Dumb & Broke” (Right Hand) moves into the #9 position, thanks to a 365-spin increase. Chris Brown’s “Questions” is up 255 spins, and Goldlink’s “Crew” (Squaaash Club) is right behind at #14, up 290 spins. G-Eazy f/A$AP Rocky & Cardi B’s “No Limit” (BPG/RVG) leaps to #22, up an impressive 530 spins. Miguel f/Travis Scott “Sky Walker” (Bystorm Ent.) is up 120 spins, and moves to #31.

Epic’s Sujit Kundu has Yo Gotti & Mike WiLL Made-It f/Nicki Minaj’s “Rake It Up” (CMG) inside the Top 5. It was up 495 spins, and has its eyes set on #1 in three weeks. Travis Scott’s “Butterfly Effect” (Grand Hustle) is up over 200 spins, and is now Top 15. 21 Savage’s “Bank Account” (Slaughter Gang)—up 250 spins—moves to #19. French Montana f/The Weeknd & Max B’s still-developing “A Lie” is at #38, gaining 70 spins. He’s impacting Camila Cabello f/Young Thug’s “Havana” (SYCO), which is already at #60, up 85 spins, as well as Busta Rhymes f/Vybz Kartel & Tory Lanez’s “Girlfriend” (The Conglomerate), which is at #68.

Republic’s Gary Spangler and Davey Dee see J. Balvin & Willy Williams’ “Mi Gente” (Universal Latin) get a remix with Beyoncé, which helped to the tune of a 180-spin increase. They debut Post Malone f/21 Savage’s “rockstar” at #18. It has 1300 spins; just amazing! They also debut The Weeknd’s “Die for You” (XO) at #32, adding another 450 spins to his total. Jessie Reyez’s “Figures” (FMLY) sees a triple-digit increase, and moves to #36. Ski Mask The Slump God’s “Catch Me Outside” (Victor) is still developing, and was up 55 spins.

Columbia’s Ayelet Schiffman and James White hold Calvin Harris f/Katy Perry, Pharrell & Big Sean’s “Feels” at #8. They also welcome Lecrae f/Tori Kelly’s “I’ll Find You” (Reach) to the Top 10. It was up over 300 spins. Tyler, The Creator f/Kali Uchis’ “See You Again” just misses debuting, coming in at #42. Ayo & Teo’s “Better Off Alone” is up 120 spins and moves up to #61. It’s just getting started. They’re impacting a new single, Calvin Harris f/Kehlani & Lil Yachty’s “Faking It,” in a few weeks.
