TOP MONEYMAKERS: DRAKE AND CARDI CLEAN UP

Between them, Drake and Cardi B took all the big bucks and left the rest of the field scrambling for the Benjamins they dropped on the way to the bank.

Drizzy’s new one, “Nice for What” (YMCMB/Republic)—the lead single from his upcoming album, it appears—took in close to a half million to top the Revenue Chart, while his smash “God’s Plan” earned another $184k, enough to land at #3. And Blocboy’s “Look Alive,” featuring Drake and released on OVO Sound, his Warner Bros. Records-distribbed label, was #6.

Tracks from Cardi’s chart-topping debut album (Atlantic) made up the rest of the Top 5 as well as finishing at #8 and 9. 

The Weeknd's "Call Out My Name" (XO/Republic), last week’s top earner, stayed on the leaderboard at #10, three slots below labelmate Post Malone f/Ty Dolla $ign's "Psycho." In all, then, Republic accounted for 40% of the Top 10, while Cardi took 50%—propelling WMG to a 42% share of the bootie.

We’ll be watching a week from now to see what the revenue shelf life is on cuts from her Invasion of Privacy; a week ago, five Weeknd tracks made the Top 10, all from the debuting My Dear Melancholy. Such is the current pattern for superstar releases.

Marketshare splits: UMG 48%, WMG 42%, Sony Music 9%, indies 2%
