What a boring Final Four! Two blowouts, two yawners. But the National Championship game?! UNC and Villanova proved to be the two best teams in the tournament, and that was a game for the ages. Hands down, the last five minutes of the game were the most exciting of any championship game I can remember. Congrats to Villanova! Opening Day is here as well, and I saw the Orioles beat the Twins 3-2 in the ninth inning; what a great way to start the season. Hope springs eternal. Hopefully, the O’s can make the playoffs (and keep the evil empire out).

And speaking of keeping people out, Def Jam has managed to keep the competition out of the top spot for six weeks now. Rick Sackheim, Noah Sheer and Scott Maness have Rihanna f/Drake’s “Work” (Westbury Road/Roc Nation) hanging out in the #1 position, and it’s still more than 2200 spins ahead of the closest competitor! Looks like another week in the catbird seat. They also have Jeremih’s “Oui” at #4, gaining 230 spins. Justin Bieber “Company” (RBMG) slides inside the Top 25, with an increase of 250 spins, and Desiigner’s “Panda” (G.O.O.D.) grabs an additional 425 spins, as it rockets to #29. DJ Mustard f/Travi$ Scott’s “Whole Lotta Lovin’” (Roc Nation) is at #32, and Iggy Azalea “Team” just misses the chart at #43. The latter was up 200+ spins, and is sure to debut this coming week. Kanye West’s “Famous” (G.O.O.D.) slides to #48, thanks in large part to a 255-spin increase. This too looks like it’ll bow this coming week. And they’re now impacting Rihanna “Needed Me,” which is sure to continue her success and dominance at the format.

Gary Spangler, Davey Dee and Stef Cole at Republic have Belly f/The Weeknd’s “Might Not” (CP/Roc Nation) inside the Top 5 this week. It was up 350 spins, and its sights are set on #1. Mike Posner’s “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” (Island) crashes the Top 10, coming in #9, up 370 spins. The Weeknd’s “Acquainted” (XO) climbs to #13, gaining 150 spins, and Drake’s “Summer Sixteen” (YMCMB) is at #20. Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” moves to #25, up 265 spins, and Keke Palmer f/Jeremih’s “Enemiez” (Island) comes in at #60.

RCA’s Inca and Lori G continue to drive Chris Brown’s “Back to Sleep” to the top. It’s at #3 this week, up 230 spins. They also have Kid Ink f/Fetty Wap’s “Promise” at #7, gaining 175 spins. ZAYN’s “PILLOWTALK” is now Top 15, following an increase of 275 spins, while Bryson Tiller’s “Exchange” is at #22, gaining 195 spins. A$AP Ferg’s “New Level” moves to #45, and Ro James’ “Permission” is right behind at #46. They impacted Snakehips f/Tinashe’s “All My Friends” this past week, and it’s just getting started.

Epic’s Sujit Kundu has Fifth Harmony f/Ty Dolla $ign’s “Work From Home” (SYCO) racing into the Top 15, up 500 spins, which was good enough to be the Most Increased record this week. Future f/The Weeknd’s “Low Life” (A1/Freebandz) comes in at #23, gaining 240 spins. Meghan Trainor’s “NO” moves to #28, with a 300-spin jump, and Zara Larsson & MNEK’s “Never Forget You” is at #38. Yo Gotti’s “Law” (CMG) just misses debuting. It was, however, up 150 spins, and will do so this coming week.

Columbia’s Ayelet Schiffman and James White see The Chainsmokers f/Daya’s “Don’t Let Me Down” (Disruptor) gain 265 spins and land at #42 this week. They’re impacting Empire f/Yazz & Yo Gotti’s “All Nite” on Episode 3, which airs April 13th. And there’s a countdown to a new one from Maxwell, entitled “Lake by the Ocean.” It’s certainly been a good while since we‘ve had music from Maxwell.

Warner Bros. Lee L’Heureux is impacting Jason Derulo’s new “If It Ain’t Love” (Beluga Heights) this week, and the feedback thus far has been very positive.

Meanwhile, Dixie Tipton and Capitol have Young Greatness’ “Moolah” at #35, after an increase of 220 spins. This record is moving out of mixshows and into real rotation at a number of stations, and the buzz continues to build.
