TAG, THEY'RE IT:
SHAZAM'S BIGGEST MOVERS


Wale
's "My PYT" went #1 on the Shazam USA Top 100's Biggest Movers list. The new song—produced by On The Dope Boyz—pays homage to Michael Jackson's Thriller classic with hook "I wanna love you, pretty young thing" and leans on the groove from Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing."

Rihanna's "Love on the Brain," a deliciously soulful album cut from ANTI (Westbury Road/Roc Nation), meanwhile, was the #2 Biggest Mover. Could this earworm be the next single? Time will tell. FYI, "Love on the Brain" and Alessia Cara's "River of Tears" (Def Jam)—the #4 Biggest Mover—were both featured on the season finale of Grey's Anatomy.

Following a sync on Silicon Valley, Pusha T's 2002 tune, "Pain" (Def Jam), jumped up to round out the Top 3 on that list.

And the syncs just keep on coming. Greg Laswell's "Dodged a Bullet" (Vanguard) landed at #5 thanks to a spot on The Blacklist.

As for Blighty, Aquilo's "I Gave It All" (Island U.K.) became the #2 Biggest Mover on the Shazam U.K. Top 100's Biggest Movers list, following a sync on British drama Hollyoaks. And thanks to a sync on BBC Two's Peaky Blinders, Arctic Monkeys' "Don't Sit Down 'Cause I've Moved Your Chair" (Domino) ended up at #3.
