TOP 40

For the first time in a long time, a former #1, Tayor Swift’s “Shake It Off” (BigMachine/Republic), will climb back to top spot this week. The rest of the Top 10 stays basically the same with Jessie J.+ Ariana Grande Nicki Minaj’s “Bang Bang” (Lava/Republic) poised for a run at #1 next week.”Jealous” by Island’s Nick Jonas, and “Trumpets” by Warner Bros.Jason Derulo, are knocking on the Top 10 door. Sam Smith’s ‘I’m Not the Only One” (Capitol) will climb into the Top 20. As for Team Columbia, One Direction’s “Steal My Girl” will also hit the Top 20 and Hozier’s "Take Me to Church" will make a chart debut alongside Interscope’s Gwen Stefani and her new single, “Baby Don’t Lie.” Republic’s Ariana Grande & The Weeknd will have the Greatest Gainer for the week with “Love Me Harder.” Meghan Trainor’s “Lips Are Moving” (Epic) is the #1 Most Added track, and Jessie J. f/2 Chainz’s “Burnin Up” (Republic) are chart bound.

 

RHYTHM

Def Jam's Iggy Azalea looks to retain the #1 spot this week with "Black Widow" f/Rita Ora, as RCA's Chris Brown comes up just short with "New Flame" f/Usher & Rick Ross. At Republic, Drake’s "0-100" continues to grow, as does Rich Gang f/Young Thug & Rich Homie Quan’s "Lifestyle," Ariana Grande & The Weeknd’s 'Love You Harder" and DJ Khaled f/Chris Brown, August Alsina, Future & Jeremih’s "Hold You Down." The folks at Warner Bros. have reason to celebrate as Jason Derulo’s "Trumpets" and I Love Makonnen f/Drake’s "Tuesday" (OVO/WB)  both see impressive gains. Meanwhile, The Weeknd’s "Often" (Republic) debuts this week.

 

ALTERNATIVE

RCA’s Foo Fighters will rocket to #5 in its first full week of airplay for "Something From Nothing." Republic's Milky Chance will remain #1 for a 7th week with their big hit, "Stolen Dance," but alt-J and Columbia’s Hozier are now closing in on the top spot. BUSH's "The Only Way Out" (Zuma Rock/RAL) is having a good week of spins, up 100x, and is now inside the Top 25. The same can be said for Harvest/Capitol’s Banks and her hot track, "Beggin’ for Thread," which is also Top 25 and up over 100x for the week. The Kooks’ "Bad Habit" (Astralworks/Virgin) and TV on the Radio's "Happy Idiot" (Harvest/Capitol) will debut on the chart.
