SPANNING THE GLOBE: SONY'S HOT STREAK

Sony is enjoying an undeniable global hot streak, dominating the international charts at both Spotify and Apple Music.

The House of Stringer has seven of the Top 10 on Spotify’s global chart, led by two blazing Columbia smashes, The Kid LAROI’s “STAY” f/Justin Bieber and “Industry Baby” by Lil Nas X f/Jack Harlow, at #1 and #2, respectively. Måneskin’s “Beggin” (Arista/SMLE) sits at #4, RCA’s Doja Cat has the #6 and #9 spots with “Need to Know” and “Woman” and Farruko’s “Pepas” (SMLE) holds the #7 position.

The Kid LAROI and Lil Nas X claim the top two positions on Apple Music’s planetary chart as well, while Doja Cat’s “Need to Know,” at #4, once again gives Sony three of the Top Four. Doja’s “Kiss Me More” f/SZA is #9. Add on this platform Rod Wave (newly moved to SME with Alamo), who has the #7 berth with “Already Won” f/Lil Durk, and two cuts from Big Hit/Columbia’s BTS, “Permission to Dance” and “Butter,” at #8 and #10.

Just below the Spotify Top 10 are biggies like Lil Nas X’s “MONTERO (Call Me by Your Name)” (#11), “Todo De Ti” by SMLE’s Rauw Alejandro (#12), “Volví” from Aventura and Bad Bunny (Rimas) at #14, Måneskin’s “I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE” (#15) and Bad Bunny’s “Yonaguni” (#16).

“Pepas,” “Volví,” Doja’s “Woman” and “Ain’t Shit” and “Beggin” occupy the #12-16 positions at Apple, while Rod Wave’s “Get Ready” f/Kodak Black is #17 and “Essence” from RCA’s Wizkid f/Tems holds #19.

Lil Nas, by the way, is due to drop his hotly anticipated full-length set next month. What else does Sony have in its quiver? Stay tuned for updates.
