It is most definitely a week for celebration! The July 4th Holiday is always full of flag-waving and fireworks, but considering all the landmark decisions that will impact our future, this week’s celebrations just got a little bigger.

As we head into the holiday weekend, Republic’s CW, Spangler and Russell continue to celebrate the chart-topping success of Taylor Swift f/Kendrick Lamar’s “Bad Blood” (Big Machine) for a second week. The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face” (XO) continues to blaze; it’s currently Top 5 iTunes, Top 10 SNOL, #1 Spotify, #2 Shazam. Fall Out Boy’s “Uma Thurman” (DCD2/Island) is now Top 5 at RateTheMusic and Top 10 at Mediabase and shows no sign of slowing down, as it climbs to #23 this week. The new, just-released video for Shawn Mendes’ “Stitches” (Island) pulled in 2m views in four days, and the single moves to #33. With Sage The Gemini f/Nick Jonas’ “Good Thing” impacting this week and Demi Lovato’s “Cool for the Summer” dropping 7/1, the hot streak should continue.

Columbia’s Leipsner, Borris and Vaughan jumped OMI’s “Cheerleader” (Ultra) into the Top 10 this week; it shows no signs of slowing down. Rachel Platten’s anthemic “Fight Song” is all set to go after another Top 10 add week; last week it pulling in 35+ new stations. Meanwhile, it continues to be Top 3 at iTunes. MKTO is chartbound, pulling in 11 adds last week. WWPW, WDZH and WZFT are already on the board for this week; sit back and watch it go. Prior to impact, Little Mix’s “Black Magic” (SYCO) has been named one of MTV’s Best Pop Songs of 2015. Early airplay is stacking up. In Detroit, WDZH PD Rayne says, “Little Mix’s ‘Black Magic’ is easily the most requested song at night for us.” Watch for big first week numbers on this one.

Team Palmese had one of last week’s Most Added, stacking up a very impressive list of stations on Nathan Sykes’ “Kiss Me Quick” (Global Entertainment). Already on the board for this week are WHQC, WPOW, KZON and KWNW, just to name a few.

Rick Sackheim’s Team Def Jam is launching Axwell ^ Ingrosso’s “Sun Is Shining” this week. The track is featured in the H&M summer campaign ad and has already racked up 7.5m total streams in one week. Jeremih f/Flo Rida’s “Tonight Belongs to U” is on over 80+ stations and has moved up to #35. Up next are two great tracks: Alessia Cara’s “Here” and Afrojack’s “Summer Thing.” Both have earned impressive airplay building prior to impact.

RCA’s Riccitelli, JR, Daddio, Cooper and Strazza have Sia’s “Elastic Heart” (Monkey Puzzle) Top 15 and eyeing Top 10 with big new increases coming in from WKTU, KZON , WFLC and others. Pitbull f/Chris Brown’s “Fun” (Mr.305/Polo Grounds) moved Top 20 this week and pulled in new airplay from WWPW, WBLI and WNCI. Prince Royce f/Pitbull & Jennifer Lopez’s “Back It Up” is chartbound and picked up 5 new adds including WODS and WNOW.

Warner Bros.Gray, Dyer, Reich and Shih had a great launch week with Kaya Stewart’s “In Love With a Boy,” which debuted this week and was one of the Greatest Gainers. Adam Lambert’s “Ghost” had another triple-digit increase and moved up inside the Top 30. This week, they’re launching Jason Derulo’s “Cheyenne” (Beluga Heights) with early adds from Z100, B96, KMVQ and WIOQ; look for big numbers on this one this week.

Epic’s Team Glassman is all smiles over the successful run that Fifth Harmony’s “Worth It” (SYCO) is having; currently the track is #7 on MB and the 5th Greatest Gainer, while it moves to Power Rotation at 50+ stations and has sold almost 2 million singles to date. Jidenna’s “Classic Man” (Wondaland) jumped to #38 this week, is Top 35 iTunes and the Top 25 Shazamed Song in the Country. Meghan Trainor & John Legend’s “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” is bubbling just under and looking to chart after a big first week of adds.

Hollywood’s Finck, Smith and Ennis continue their successful run with Andy Grammer’s “Honey, I’m Good” (S-Curve), as continues to grow inside the Top 10. A ton of majors move it in to power rotation this week, including WFLZ, KSLZ and WFBC, just to name a few. Bea Miller’s “Fire N Gold” has racked up 40+ stations and some big believers in SiriusXM Hits 1, KDIS and KRQQ as she looks to chart soon.

Capitol’s Reese, Rainey, Youngblood and Siciliano continues the streak of Most Added weeks with Tori Kelly’s “Should’ve Been Us” just as the track moves Top 30. Sam Hunt’s “Take Your Time” (MCA Nashville) moved into the Top 30 and WNCI, WNKS and WKSE all upped their rotations this week. Sam Smith’s “Like I Can” just raked in new airplay from WHBQ, WWWQ, WPRO and KKHH; this one looks like it’s set to move. On impact, Silento’s “Watch Me” certainly had people “watching”; with 80+ stations already in, this one’s sitting at #42 and is ready to explode. The “memes” inspired by it are particularly awesome.

MUSIC WE LOVE: Tove Lo’s “Timebomb” (Island/Republic), Jason Derulo’s “Cheyenne” (Beluga Heights/Warner Bros.)
