CROSSOVER
THE BALLSTREET JOURNAL

When I think back to recent years, it feels like the amount of new releases has grown exponentially in 2017. I haven’t seen any updated data, but with all the independent labels and regional artists that popped up, we've just had an influx of new music. The charts have jammed, and there are weeks where it takes over 650 spins to debut. This is typically the time of year where a label might drop one newer artist in hopes of securing some traction and start off the new year with a story. But with only about four weeks left in the year, many labels still have multiple releases and no end in sight! It’ll be interesting to see how this model works this holiday season, and what records get lost in the down time.

Gary Spangler and Davey Dee at Republic continue to grow Post Malone f/21 Savage’s “rockstar.” It’s #1, up 215 spins, this week. And it’s about 1,800 spins in front of the next competitor. Expect this song to enjoy another week or two at the top. Balvin & Willy Williams f/Beyoncé’s “Mi Gente” (PW/UMLE) is at #4, up 320 spins. It should get to #3 this coming week. The Weeknd’s “Die for You” (XO) has a huge jump on the chart, moving to #15, up 160 spins. Demi Lovato’s “Sorry Not Sorry” (Safehouse/Hollywood/Island) lands at #17, and Post Malone’s “I Fall Apart” moves inside the Top 25 to #23. It gains 290 additional spins. Taylor Swift’s “…Ready for It?” just misses debuting at #41. They’re impacting Big Sean & Metro Boomin f/21 Savage’s “Pull Up N Wreck” this week. It was up 175 spins, and the goal is to compete with Eminem Beyoncé’s “Walk on Water” (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope) for Most Added this week.

RCA’s Inca and Lori G move G-Eazy f/A$AP Rocky & Cardi B’s “No Limit” to #3 this week. It was up 635 spins, and the plan is to take this #1. GoldLink’s “Crew” (Squaaash Club) is at #8, up triple-digits, while Chris Brown’s “Questions” slides into the Top 10. He was up 180 spins this week. SZA’s “The Weekend” (TDE) jumps #33-26, gaining 215 spins, and Marshmello X Khalid’s “Silence” (Joytime Collective) is at #34, after gaining 110 spins. They have a double debut this week as well, with A$APFerg’s “Plain Jane” (Polo Grounds) landing at #39 and Chris Brown’s “Pills & Automobiles” coming in at #40.

Columbia’s Ayelet Schiffman and James White heat things up with the release of N.E.R.D. & Rihanna’s “Lemon,” which debuts in just one week, coming in at #36 and gaining 585 spins. Calvin Harris f/Kehlani & Lil Yachty’s “Faking It” jumps to #21, gaining 250 spins. Russ’ “Wife You Up” also has an amazing jump on the chart, going #37-28 this week. He was up nearly 300 spins. They’re impacting a new Lecrae this week, entitled “Broke” (Reach), coming off the heels of his last Top 10 record. They also just dropped Remy Ma f/Lil Kim’s new one, “Wake Me Up.” Make sure you check it out.

Def Jam’s Rick Sackheim and Noah Sheer welcome Jay-Z f/Damian Marley’s Bam” (Roc Nation) into the Top 25, after gaining 115 spins. They also have Chainz f/21 Savage’s “4AM” (G.O.O.D.) at #33.

Epic’s Sujit Kundu has Travis Scott’s “Butterfly Effect” (Grand Hustle) at #11, gaining 75 spins, with sights set on the Top 10. Camila Cabello f/Young Thug’s “Havana” (SYCO) is on auto pilot. It moves #18-13, adding over 620 spins to her total. Yo Gotti’s “Juice” (CMG) is up triple digits, and a week away from debuting. Sujit still has three releases this year, as Zoey Dollaz f/Chris Brown’s “Post & Delete” (Freebandz), French Montana’s “Famous” (BadBoy) and Future & Young Thug f/Offset’s “Patek Water” are coming in the next three weeks.

Capitol’s Greg Marella and Dixie Tipton are sitting pretty with Migos f/Nicki Minaj & Cardi B’s “MotorSport” (QC/Motown). It races #35-22, up 680 spins. They also debut Sam Smith’s “To Good at Goodbyes” this week at #38. Halsey’s “Bad at Love” (Astralwerks) is at #42 and should debut this coming week. Also, they’re impacting Stefflon Don & French Montana’s “Hurtin’ Me” (QC/Motown) this week.
