THE BALLSTREET JOURNAL

It’s now been four weeks with KSR/Atlantic’s Cardi B “Bodak Yellow” at the top, but Epic and Sujit Kundu are making a push to make Yo Gotti & Mike WiLL Made-It f/Nicki Minaj’s “Rake It Up” (CMG) #1 on next week’s chart. It’s over 1,200 spins away, but Cardi seems to be showing a lot of burn and “Rake It Up” still has a few stations moving to power. Gotti was up 350 spins this week. Epic also has Travis Scott’s “Butterfly Effect” (Grand Hustle) now in the Top 15, up 70 spins, as well as 21 Savage’s “Bank Account” (Slaughter Gang) right behind at #16. This one was up 95 spins. They debut Camila Cabello f/Young Thug’s “Havana” (SYCO) at #35, thanks to a 260-spin increase. It’s also on fire at Top 40. Busta Rhymes f/Vybz Kartel & Tory Lanez’s “Girlfriend” (The Conglomerate) is just getting started.

And next in line is G-Eazy f/A$AP Rocky & Cardi B’s “No Limit” (BPG/RVG) at #14. This monster was up 500 spins. Miguel f/Travis Scott’s “Skywalker” (Bystorm Ent.) adds a healthy 195 spins, and SZA’s “The Weekend” (TDE) just misses debuting at #43. She was up triple-digits, and is sure to debut next week. Marshmello X Khalid’s “Silence” (Joytime Collective) was also up over 100 spins, and is gaining momentum. Watch for this one. 

Republic’s Gary Spangler and Davey Dee are on fire with Post Malone. “rockstar” featuring 21 Savage shoots #11-6, gaining 900 spins. Every metric we look at screams smash.
