BIG RED IS HOT

As supernova Lil Nas X prepares to smash the record for most weeks atop the Hot 100 chart (which "Old Town Road" tied this week at 16), let's take a look at Columbia's streaming action.

The label currently has nine tracks on the Spotify Top  50 and 12 in the Top 100. Lil Nas leads the way with four cuts (Top 5 "Panini," two "Old Town Road" iterations and "Rodeo" f/Cardi B); three other recent signings make the cut, including Y2K and Polo G (both in the Top 20) and brand-new inking Ambjaay (pictured here), whose "Uno" is just getting started. Add action for Tyler, The Creator, Beyoncé and The Chainsmokers, and Columbia is feeling its oats.

We're not sure if Ambjaay's name is pig Latin, but if it is and a translator is needed, we're all over it.
