Def Jam's 1-2 Punch

“Snowmageddon,” “Blizzard of Historic Proportions,” “Whiteout,” whatever you
want to call it… stock up, stay inside and keep the cell phones charged! And while all of that freezing is going on across the Eastern Seaboard, things are really heating up for Def Jam’s Sackheim, Chester, Rothschild and Farag. After two big add weeks with Kanye West f/Paul McCartney’s “Only One,” it’s bubbling just under and looking to chart. Then along comes Rihanna, Kanye West & Paul McCartney’s “FourFiveSeconds,” which dropped on Saturday and is already racing up the chart with tons of great majors on board. WXXL Orlando’s Brian Mack (below) tells us, it’s “nice to hear a Beatle involved in a Top 40 project again. Sounds great!" Apparently it tastes great too…

After just four weeks on the chart, Calvin Harris f/Ellie Goulding’s “Outside” is sitting Top 25 with new adds on the board from WDZH, WRQX and WDJX and 51m+ views on YouTube
