SONG REVENUE CHART:
JUKEBOX RECEIPTS

Post Malone's streamadelic "rockstar" (Republic) appears to be Krazy Glued to the top spot on on our Song Revenue Chart, ringing up $192k, the same total as the previous week. “Havana” from SYCO/Epic's Camila Cabello is once again the leading challenger, edging slightly closer to the champ—and the Bunny’s buzzing upstart Lil Pump is getting so big he may have to dump the first half of his name, as “Gucci Gang” vaults seven slots to #3.

Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” (Atlantic), now #4, should get a boost from the just-released duet version with Beyoncé. And KIDinaKORNER/Interscope’s relentless Imagine Dragons have just cracked the Top 5 with “Thunder” (see what we did right there?). 

For the first time in ages, we’re seeing a passel of seemingly legit contenders, as G-Eazy and his posse as well as Selena Gomez f/Marshmello climb onto the leaderboard. It’s also worth noting that the Top 10 of this hip-hop-dominated chart is now evenly split between rappers and poppers, with a second Post cut and Cardi B in the former camp and Sam Smith rounding out the opposition.    

Marketshare: UMG 50%, Sony 27%, WMG 23%
