RADIO CHART PREVIEW
Magic! Keeps Casting Its Spell at Pop, Tinashe's Rhythmic Rule Remains
Hey, buddy! This glimpse of the immediate future of three key Mediabase charts comes with a shout-out to all the folks at Clear Channel’s mega-summit. We wish we were there to see your kind faces and enjoy the open-bar cocktail parties. As it is, we’ll just drink some more Old Grand-Dad out of a jelly jar. TGIF!

TOP 40
Latium/RCA’s Magic! will remain in the #1 spot for one more week with "Rude." But "Stay With Me" by Capitol’s Sam Smith is stepping up to take the crown. Hollywood’s Demi Lovato moves back into the Top 10, climbing up to #8 this week. Epic’s Meghan Trainor is this week’s Greatest Gainer with the self-esteem-boosting phenomenon "All About That Bass," and makes that Top 20 move. Other big gainers inside the Top 20 are Iggy Azalea f/Rita Ora’s "Black Widow" (Grand Hustle/Def Jam), and two from Republic, Enrique Iglesias f/D.Bueno, S.Paul & GDZ’s "Bailando" and Jessie J + Ariana Grande + Nicki Minaj’s "Bang Bang."  Look for Capitol’s Katy Perry to join the chart with new her new one, "This Is How We Do." 

RHYTHM
RCA
remains red-hot as Tinashe f/ScHoolboy Q’s "2 On" and Kid Ink’s "Main Chick" hold the top two posts, with "Chick" looking to make the leap to #1 the following week; it’s in a dogfight with "Am I Wrong" by Warner Bros.Nico & Vinz. Def Jam’s Jeremih "Don’t Tell ’Em" will be up over 600 spins, and Capitol’s Sam Smith climbs into the Top 10 with "Stay With Me." Big jumpers include "New Flame" by RCA’s Chris Brown, and Republic’s Ariana Grande f/Zedd with "Break Free," and the Jessie J + Ariana Grande + Nicki Minaj monster "Bang Bang." Republic also has big debuts with Drake’s "0-100" and Nicki Minaj’s "Anaconda."

ALTERNATIVE
For a third time in as many weeks we'll have a new #1, Vance Joy’s "Riptide." Republic’s Milky Chance will step into the Top 5 with "Stolen Dance," which continues to grow at a rapid pace. The Top 10 will soon be home to Hozier’s "Take Me To Church," as the buzzing track is set to gain another impressive 200x. Priory’s "Weekend" (Warner Bros.) will move to #17. Virgin’s Bastille will arrive in the Top 20 with their latest single, "Flaws."
