Quantcast
SALES UPDATE:
TOP 10 TRACKS

Up 18% on the week, “Cheerleader” from Ultra/Columbia’s OMI is starting to look like the 2015 equivalent of Magic!’s “Rude,” the loping pop-reggae cut that was everywhere last summer. Interestingly, the Felix Jaehn remix, the hit version of the record, smooths out the reggae bump of the original and adds Auto-tune, making it less indigenously Jamaican-sounding than “Rude,” which, you’ll recall, was the work of a bunch of guys from Canada. Ain’t pop culture wacky.

Its primarily challenger may well be “Fight Song” from another Columbia rookie, Rachel Platten (+35%, #7-4), as Rob Stringer’s crew heats up along with the weather. 

Those two are the only occupants of the big board on upward trajectories, though Andy Grammer’s breakout hit “Honey I’m Good” (S-Curve/Hollywood) was virtually flat. The lone new title is The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face” (XO/Republic), which essentially replaces the same artist’s “The Hills” in the Top 10; the latter track is #13 and down just 5%.     

  1. Taylor Swift, “Bad Blood” – 206k
  2. Wiz Khalifa f/Charlie Pluth, “See You Again” – 139k
  3. OMI, “Cheerleader” – 135k
  4. Rachel Platten, “Fight Song” – 132k
  5. Andy Grammer, “Honey I’m Good” – 115k
  6. Walk the Moon, “Shut Up + Dance” – 109k
  7. Petty Wap, “Trap Queen” – 102k
  8. The Weeknd, “Can’t Feel My Face” – 93k
  9. David Guetta f/Nicki Minaj & Afrojack, “Hey Mama” – 86k
  10. Jason Derulo, “Want to Want Me” – 84k

There are a couple of firecrackers about to explode just below the big board: “Watch Me” from Capitol newcomer Silento (#19-12, 78k, +17%) and “Kick the Dust Up,” the lead single from Luke Bryan’s forthcoming Capitol Nashville LP, Kill the Lights (#21-15, 72k, +24%).
