SONG REVENUE CHART: EPIC REMAINS EPIC

Epic still has four of the Top 5 tracks on the BuzzAngle-powered Song Revenue Chart, as 21 Savage's "Bank Account" (Slaughter Gang/Epic) breaks into the Top 3. That said, Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee f/Justin Bieber's "Despacito" (UMLE/RBMG/Def Jam/Republic) holds on to #1 honors with more than $169,748 generated from the combination of 16,241,854 in streams and 83,909 in sales.

Sam Hunt's country crossover smash, "Body Like a Back Road" (MCA Nashville), and Imagine Dragons' Alternative banger, "Believer" (KIDinaKORNER/Interscope) both inch closer to the Top 5 this week, going #9-7 and #7-6, respectively.

RCA breakout star Khalid sees a substantial bump, jumping #23-16. For what it's worth, "Location"—his lead single that's still climbing at Top 40 radio (after going #1 at Urban and #3 at Rhythm)—was recently discounted to 69 cents at iTunes. The song has been streamed a gargantuan 275m+ times at Spotify and has a prominent spot on the streaming service's Are & Be playlist, which boasts nearly 3.5m followers. 

It's worth noting that Khalid's follow-up single, "Young, Dumb & Broke," which just charted at Rhythm radio (and is also climbing at Top 40), enters the Song Revenue Chart this week at #40.

Portugal. The Man's "Feel It Still" (Atlantic), which recently topped the Alternative radio chart, enters this chart at #25, marking the highest debut. And Thomas Rhett's "Unforgettable" (Valory/BMLG) comes in #31, while Future's "You Da Baddest" (A1/Freebandz/Epic) appears at #33.

Marketshare splits: UMG 44%, SME 39%, WMG 15%, indies 2%.
