TAG THEY'RE IT: SHAZAM'S BIGGEST MOVERS

Radio is attracting thumbs this week as five new singles top the list of greatest gainers on the Shazam USA Top 100. A Creed II track is already punching above its weight.

Mike WiLL Made-It, Pharrell & Kendrick Lamar’s track from Creed II: The Album, “The Mantra” (Eardruma/Interscope), delivered the sharpest punch of the batch rising to #53. The film opens tonight and may attract thumbs pointing their phones at the movie screen.

Little Mix f/Nicki Minaj’s “Woman Like Me” (Syco) swoops in next followed by Interscope’s Ellie Goulding & Diplo f/Swae Lee’s “Close to Me.”

Two recent releases from Hitco follow, Coca Vango’s “Sauce All on Me” and LightSkinKeisha & B Smyth’s “Ride Good.”

American singer Ava Max rises to the top of the greatest gainers list in the U.K. with her August release “Sweet But Psycho,” which has benefited from placement on multiple Spotify playlists. Two Christmas ads are bolstering a couple of oldies: Elton John’s “Your Song,” which is in the John Lewis advert; and Ennio Morricone’s “L'estasi dell'oro” (The Ecstasy of Gold)” from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly is in a KFC ad.

We’re having hard time picturing The Man With No Name, The Rat and Angel Eyes diving into a bucket of extra crispy.
