SONG REVENUE CHART: WHERE THE RUBBER MEETS THE ROAD

HITSBuzzAngle-powered Top 50 Song Revenue Chart can now be accessed from the $$$$ drop-down menu, but here’s the link for your convenience.

This chart expansion brings plenty of additional names to the party; it also means the rich appear to get even richer. The Chainsmokers—whose new "All We Know" f/Phoebe Ryan makes its debut—Drake and twenty one pilots land the most entries with three apiece, followed by double-dippers Sia, Calvin Harris, Ariana Grande and Desiigner.

A week ago, we speculated that the appearance of both new tracks from Toronto luminary The Weeknd “bodes well for the Toronto Blue Jays in the ALCS.” To quote Donald Trump, WRONG.

And now, a word from our numbers-crunchers: On-demand audio streams are calculated at an average of .00575 per stream; however, streams from the ad-supported tier are calculated at a lower rate. Track sales are calculated at 70% of retail, with 69-cent and other discount sales pricing factored in.

Top 50 Total Revenue: $2.78 million

Top 50 Share: UMG 39% / SME 31% / WMG 26%
