SALES UPDATE:
TOP 10 TRACKS

Columbia has landed a third record in the Top 5, as One Direction’s latest smash joins the initial smashes from OMI and Rachel Platten. The other two Top 5 tracks—from The Weeknd and the debuting Drake—are from Republic, as is a second Weeknd hit at #7, meaning the two labels battling for weekly and YTD marketshare dominance continue trading haymakers. This one is far from over, as I.B. Bad explains in his latest column.

  1. One Direction, “Drag Me Down” (SYCO/Columbia) – 350k
  2. The Weeknd, “Can’t Feel My Face” (XO/Republic) – 134k
  3. OMI, “Cheerleader” (Ultra/Columbia) – 129k
  4. Drake, “Back to Back” (YM/CM/Republic) – 122k
