THE BALLSTREET JOURNAL

As we head into August, it’s time to start thinking about school starting up again, and wrapping up summer. Vacations are coming to an end, and no more half-day Fridays or sneaking out for a round of golf. In looking back, this was most definitely Drake’s summer. He has another #1 this week with “Controlla” (YMCMB), and “Too Good” f/Rihanna is already Top 25 and impacting this week. He is featured on three other tracks, and is talking about another mixtape, which I think is a safe bet to say will have even more fire.

Republic’s  Gary Spangler, Davey Dee and Stef Cole have had quite a busy summer, and it is showing no signs of slowing down. Marc E. Bassy f/ G-Eazy’s “You & Me” (BPG) is just now hitting its stride, moving to #14 and gaining 330 spins. Ariana Grande’s “Into You” climbs 27-22, up 230 spins, and Nick Jonas f/Ty Dolla $ign’s “Bacon” (Island) is at #37. Kungs & Cookin’ on Three Burners’  “This Girl” (Sound of Barclay/Casablanca) is one of the bigger buzz records out there, and just misses charting. It was up 220 spins, and new stations continue to climb on board. Belly f/Kehlani’s “You” (Roc Nation) had an increase of 160 spins, which lands him at #51.

Epic’s Sujit Kundu has DJ Khaled’s new LP Major Keys (We The Best) sitting on top of the chart, with three current singles out at Urban and Rhythm. “For Free” f/Drake (YMCMB/Republic) is at #3, up 375 spins. It is making a strong push to be the next #1 record. “I Got The Keys” f/Jay Z sits at #19, and the just-released “Do You Mind” f/ Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, August Alsina, Jeremih, Future and Rick Ross comes in at #77 after two days, up 120 spins. Sujit also takes Fifth Harmony’s “All In My Head (Flex)” (SYCO) Top 10, adding an additional 210 spins. Young Thug & Travis Scott f/Quavo’s “Pick Up The Phone” is at #39, and Jidenna “Little Bit More” lands at #58, up 75 spins.

Columbia’s Ayelet Schiffman and James White have Calvin Harris f/Rihanna’s “This Is What You Came For” officially inside the Top 5. It is at #4, after an increase of 190 spins. They also drop a new Chainsmokers, this time featuring Halsey, titled “Closer” (Disruptor). It got 70 spins, and will make a push to get on the chart in a few short weeks. They are coming off a Top 5 record at the format. Aye and James are also impacting Beyonce’s “Hold Up” in a week.

RCA’s Inca and Lori G have Usher f/Young Thug’s “No Limit” at #11, gaining 170 spins. They also have Sia’s “Cheap Thrills” (Monkey Puzzle) at #15, up a very healthy 420 spins. This is on its way to top 10. Bryson Tiller’s “Sorry Not Sorry” debuts at #38, gaining 150 spins. Kid Ink f/Jeremih’s “Nasty” lands at #34, gaining 60 spins. Ayo Jay’s “Your Number” is at #70, and they are impacting Tinashe’s “Superlove” this week. It is already at #72, and had 85 new spins.

Rick Sackheim, Noah Sheer, and Scott Maness at Def Jam have YG f/Drake “Why You Always Hatin’” moving #21-18, tacking on 120 spins, and Kanye West’s “Father Stretch My Hands” (G.O.O.D./Roc-a-Fella)at #20, which sees an additional 190 spins this week. They also own the highest debut this week in Major Lazer f/Justin Bieber & MO’s “Cold Water”(Mad Decent), which comes in at #29. It was up 735 spins, and is still gaining momentum. Logic’s “Flexicution” continues to grow, as it moves #61-49. It was up 130 spins.
