TAG, THEY'RE IT: IT'S KANYE'S "DAY"

West, Walk the Moon, Empire Track Among Big Jumpers at Shazam

Kanye West's latest delivery was the week's biggest gainer on the Shazam USA Top 100 Tags Chart, while RCA's Walk the Moon and a key moment on the most recent episode of the smash Empire (a duet between Estelle as diva Delphine and new Columbia signing Jussie Smollett as Jamal Lyon) launched a fusillade of phone-pointing. Meanwhile, IMG/Republic's Natalie La Rose breaks into the Top 5 of the rankings with her smash "Somebody" featuring Jeremih.

Other big jumpers include Lava/Republic's Lorde with "Yellow Flicker Beat" and Kemosabe/Columbia's LunchMoney Lewis, whose "Bills' is a bouncy breakout.

Kanye made the biggest leap on the U.K. chart as well, with indie troubadour/DJ Fink's"Looking Too Closely" hot on his heels.
