TOP MONEYMAKERS:
FEAT. DON’T FAIL ME NOW

Two singles have generated a blast of fresh air across the doldrums of late summer. Both, fashionably, are powered by featured artists—abbreviated as FEAT. on the Revenue Chart.

We’re referring to “FEFE” by 6ix9ine feat. Nicki Minaj (whose title has countless suburbanites consulting the Urban Dictionary), up 32% week-over-week with $267.8k, though it stays at #2 behind Drake’s “Nice for What” (-23%); and the aptly titled “No Brainer,” on which DJ Khaled gets the crew back together. Said crew, of course, comprises Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper and Quavo, who previously teamed with the hip-hop toastmaster on the 2017 chart-topper “I’m the One.” As the saying goes, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Next week, look for Khaled's Epic labelmate Travis Scott to be amply represented in this space.
