Epic’s Sujit Kundu is making some noise these days with his roster of artists. He’s done a bang-up job with Jidenna’s “Classic Man” (Wondaland), which took about five weeks to get on the chart and has since been on the chart, steadily climbing, for another five weeks. It jumps #25-19 this week, up 200 spins; this is the largest increase it’s had in a single week to date. He also has Ciara’s “I Bet” at #21, up 70 spins, and it continues to grow and develop. Fifth Harmony f/Kid Ink “Worth It” (SYCO) climbs inside the Top 25 and adds 115 spins .The track is now the #12 selling single on iTunes. It also continues to build quickly at Pop. Future’s “Commas” slides #33-30 this week, tacking on an additional 90 spins. He’s developing Tink’s “Rachet Commandments,” which is building a base at Urban, as well as Janelle Monae & Jidenna’s “Yoga” (Wondaland), which is following the same pattern. And they’re impacting Mariah Carey’s new track, “Infinity,” this week.

Ayelet Schiffman and James White at Columbia have an impressive impact as well this week. Omi’s “Cheerleader” is an international hit that’s quickly building here in the States; the Shazam numbers are quite impressive and the iTunes sales are consistently building as well. Early believers at the format include WJMN Boston, KSFM Sacramento, KQKS Denver, WZMX Hartford and KDDB Honolulu; the record was up 100 spins this week. They also debut Dillon Francis & DJ Snake’s “Get Low” (Mad Decent) this week at #38, adding 140 spins. J. Cole’s “Wet Dreamz” (Roc Nation) adds 260 spins and climbs to #28 this week.


Gary Spangler, Davey Dee and Stef Cole at Republic still have the #1 record in the land with The Weeknd’s “Earned It” (XO). Ariana Grande’s “One Last Time” remains at #5, up 210 spins. Tove Lo’s “Talking Body” (Island) sits at #31, gaining 50 spins, and is approaching Top 10 at Pop. And Nicki Minaj’s “The Night Is Still Young” (YMCMB) just missed the chart, but is sure to make a lofty appearance next week; KQKS Denver just jumped on board, and it was up 370 spins this week.

Rick Sackhiem, Noah Sheer and Scott Maness at Def Jam Have Rihanna’s “BBHMM” (Roc Nation) at #11, posting an additional 215 spins. Kanye West’s “All Day” (G.O.O.D.) is at #12 and was up 120 spins. Jeremih f/Flo Rida’s “The Night Belongs to U!” moves to #43, up 90 spins, and looks to debut next week.

The crew at RCAJohn Strazza, Inca and Lori G – continue to build Tinashe’s “All Hands on Deck.” KKFR Phoenix and WBHJ Birmingham both put it in this week. The song holds at #17, but was up 200 spins; it continues to grab new stations each week. Kid Ink f/Dej Loaf’s “Be Real” (Alumni/88Classic) has a massive week, as it gains another 410 spins and rockets to #26. Pitbull f/Chris Brown’s “Fun” (Mr. 305/Polo Grounds) just misses the chart at #41, but is sure to debut this coming week. Marin Garrix f/Usher’s “Don’t Look Down” is at #53, and Deorro X Chris Brown’s “Five More Hours” sits at #66. Alyxx Dione f/Jason Derulo’s “Chingalinga” is just getting started. They’re impacting Britney Spears & Iggy Azalea’s “Pretty Girls”; it’s expected to have a massive week at Pop, and Rhythm should not be too far behind. Look for the more Pop-leaning stations to jump on this early.


Lee L’Heureux and Warner Bros. continue to inch Jason Derulo’s “Want to Want Me” (Beluga Heights) to the top of the charts; it moves to #9 this week, gaining 340 spins this week. The sales continue to be huge, and it’s a monster at Pop as well.
