THE BALLSTREET JOURNAL

Republic seems to have a lock on the top of the chart, as Drake’s “God’s Plan” (YMCMB) returns to #1, taking it back from The Weeknd & Kendrick Lamar’s “Pray for Me” (TDE/Aftermath/Interscope), which was there just last week. And coming up next is Post Malone’s “Psycho,” which is #1 on the real time chart as I type this. It was up 360 spins this week. Gary Spangler and Davey Dee also see Drake’s “Nice for What” (YMCMB) debut at #14 this week. It was up a remarkable 1,970 spins; could this be the fastest ever to reach #1? They also debut The Weeknd’s “Call Out My Name” (XO)—up 455 spins—at #38. This one’s already inside the Top 30. Nicki Minaj has two records moving quickly, as “Chun-Li” (YMCMB), which they’re officially working, sees 340 spins out of the gate. It’s already inside the Top 30 on the building chart. Her other track, “Barbie Tingz” (YMCMB), gets 300 spins, as some stations are playing both. Kiana Lede’s “Fairplay” is still developing each week. They’re impacting a brand new Ariana Grande record, “No Tears Left To Cry,” as well as Jayden Smith’s “Icon” (Roc Nation), which is approaching Top 20 at Urban.



Columbia’s Ayelet Schiffman and James White have Diplo & Lil Xan’s “Color Blind” gaining 150 spins and landing at #53 this week. This is another week or so away from debuting. They just impacted Calvin Harris & Dua Lipa’s “One Kiss” this week. The song—off to an impressive early start at Top 40—was up triple digits and is just getting started. Columbia’ss also teaming up with John Strazza and RECORDS for the Nelly f/Jacquees’ “Freaky with You.” Power106 L.A. and a number of other stations are already supporting.

RCA’s Inca and Lori G have G-Eazy f/Charlie Puth’s “Sober” (BPG/Revels Group) at #18, up 110 spins. Not far behind is Khalid X Normani’s “Love Lies” (Right Hand/Keep Cool), which climbs into the Top 20, up 210 spins. The streams remain very solid for this one. SZA’s “Broken Clocks” (TDE) is up 40 spins and continues to develop. Miguel’s “Come Through and Chill” (ByStorm Ent.) is up 215 spins and looks to have a solid debut this coming week.

Capitol’s Greg Marella and Dixie Tipton see Migos’ “Stir Fry” (QC/Motown) continue to grow. It’s up 120 spins. Offset & Metro Boomin’s “Ric Flair Drip” also shows more signs of life, as it’s up 190 spins and moves to #9 this week. Ne-Yo f/Stefflon Don & Bebe Rexha’s “Push Back” begins its rise on the chart, coming in at #75 this week.

Epic’s Rick Sackheim and Dontay Thompson are pushing DJ Khaled f/Beyoncé, Jay-Z & Future’s “Top Off” (We the Best) inside the Top 10. It’s still growing, and stations are starting to move it up in rotation. Camila Cabello’s “Never Be the Same” (SYCO) moves #14-12, gaining another 190 spins. It’s pushing for #1 at Top 40 this week. A.Chal’s “Love N Hennessy” (GAZI WORLD/Empire) lands at #44 this week. Hoodcelebrityy’s “Walking Trophy” (KSR) is up triple digits and continues to get new believers each week.



Noah Sheer
and Def Jam see an increase of 250 spins on Logic & Marshmello’s “Everyday,” which is at #11, but on its way to a Top 5 position! Jhene Aiko f/Rae Sremmurd’s “Sativa” (ARTium) is up 165 spins, good enough for #17 this week. 2 Chainz f/YG & Offset’s “Proud” moves two spots to #37 this week, gaining 80 new spins.

Mike Chester and Michael Williams are teaming up for Lil Dicky f/Chris Brown’sFreaky Friday” (BMG). The video is still on fire, and the record moves #19-16, thanks to a 445-spin increase.
