PDs are struggling to find airplay slots, with major acts dropping singles one after another. Radio is doing its collective best to make room for all of them; the only problem is that some tracks that deserve a true shot are getting lost in the shuffle. It’s always hard to break one in the fourth quarter, and this year there seems to be an abundance of major artists looking for airplay in November.

Columbia’s Leipsner, Borris & Vaughan have broken just about every record on the Pop side of things with Adele’s “Hello” (XL). The track jumped up inside the Top 20 on impact, has #1 sales, streams and Shazam numbers and is on track to break the record for YouTube views with 200m in just 10 days. The Chainsmokers f/Rozes’ “Roses” is ready to make the Top 30 jump. One Direction’s “Perfect” (SYCO) is Top 30 after two weeks on the chart. With 95+ adds after the first two weeks and 18 on the board for this week already, this one should take off.

Republic’s CW, Spangler and Russell once again have the #1 record on the Mediabase chart, as Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” (Big Machine) holds it down for one more week. Shawn Mendes’ “Stitches” (Island) is hot on her heels, as it moves up to #2, while labelmate Drake moves Top 5 with “Hotline Bling” (YMCMB), which is one of the week’s Greatest Gainers. Teaming up with Hollywood’s Finck, Smith & Ennis, team Republic moves Demi Lovato’s “Confident” (Safehouse/Island/Hollywood) up inside the Top 20 four weeks after impact. DNCE’s “Cake by the Ocean” continues its climb inside the Top 30 and has almost cleared the panel. Ariana Grande’s new single, “Focus,” dropped and, after only a couple of days of airplay, is sitting inside the Top 30. Both Tove Lo’s “Moments” (Island) and Fall Out Boy f/Demi Lovato’s “Irresistible” (DCD2/Island) should chart next week.


RCA’s Riccitelli, JR, Daddio, Cooper & Strazza moved Elle King’s “Ex’s and Oh’s” Top 10 this week with a little help from some great callout. Currently at #4 on Shazam’s U.S. chart and #4 on iTunes’ singles chart, this one shows no sign of slowing down. Sia’s “Alive” (Monkey Puzzle) is now on more than 70 Pop stations, and she’ll be performing on SNL come 11/7. With a #1 album under their belt, Pentatonix’s “Can’t Sleep Love” is looking to chart. Hits 1’s Kid Kelly, “The New King of All Pop,” gave us his reason for playing the track. "Now, let me get this right. They have millions of fans, are incredibly talented and have a unique and original song available that sounds like a hit? Why would I play that??" After just two weeks, Chris Brown’s “Zero” has pulled in 40 stations, including WBMP, KIIS and WKQI. This week, they’re impacting Tinashe f/Chris Brown’s “Player.”

Epic’s Team Glassman had another Greatest Gainer week with Meghan Trainor f/John Legend’s “Like I’m Gonna Lose You.” The research, sales and Shazam numbers on this one continue to scream “hit.” Epic, meanwhile, has two tracks picking up steam; Zara Larsson’s “Lush Life” is on 50 stations and Lipstick Gypsy’s “The Cure” pulled in 8 new adds last week.

Capitol’s Rainey, Youngblood & Siciliano are launching Tori Kelly’s “Hollow” this week; look for it in the Most Added Column. 5 Seconds of Summer’s “Hey Everybody!” moves up inside the Top 30 and Audien f/Lady A’s “Something Better” picks up new airplay from WODS, KHKS and WIOG.

Warner Bros.Gray, Dyer, Reich & Shih have 80+ stations on Nico & Vinz f/Bebe Rexha’s “That’s How You Know”; WPLV, KXXM and WPXY are all new this week. And stay tuned; they’re impacting Adam Lambert’s new single, “Another Lonely Night,” on 11/16.

Artbeatz/RED’s Buch, Halpern & Weil continue to pull in majors on Daya’s “Hide Away”; Z100, WIHT, KRBE and Q100 all come on board this week, as the sales story continues to build. RAL also posted up big adds on Shaggy f/Pitbull’s “Only Love”; WNOU and Venus just jumped, and the track charts this week. Meanwhile, Nelly f/Jeremih’s “The Fix” pulls in KDND and KLUC.

Def Jam’s Sackheim, Rothschild & Farag have Alessia Cara’s “Here” poised to make the Top 10 move this week. With the great research numbers posting on this one, it should continue to climb. Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” is already Top 20 just two weeks from impact. As one would expect, the social numbers and video views on this one are through the roof.

Crush Music’s Team Olesen pulled in airplay from eight new stations this week on Max f/Hoodie Allen’s “Gibberish,” just as the track gets set to chart.
