There are only three more weeks left in the reporting year and the story will most likely continue to be all about Adele. She’s breaking every sales record out there and racing up the chart on multiple formats. “Hello” is currently sitting at #1 at Pop, HAC, AC and AAA, and is Top 15 at both Urban AC and Rhythm. Columbia’s Leipsner, Borris and Vaughan have done a terrific job rolling out that one to all formats, and it’s sure to break all chart records for spins and overall audience. One Direction’s “Perfect” (SYCO) is edging closer to the Top 15. With Cumulus moving the track to subpower, it should happen next week.  The Chainsmokers f/Rozes’ “Roses” (Disruptor) moves to #23 and Premium Choice starts this week. Rachel Platten’s “Stand by You” is getting ready to chart. With big increases coming in from SiriusXM Hits 1, WZPL and WIXX that should happen soon.

Def Jam’s Sackheim, Rothschild & Farag have people jumping out on Justin Bieber’s next single way before to the add date, due to the success of the its two predecessors. With “Sorry” sitting at #7 as the #2 Greatest Gainer, a few PDs have chosen to put “Love Yourself” into rotation early. Alessia Cara’s “Here,” meanwhile, continues its climb inside the Top 10, as she moves up to #8. With the panel closed out, it’s all about the spin increases at this point. KXXM PD Chase Murphy says, “It was a first listen for [APD/MD] Russell Rush and me. As we were listening to it months ago, we both kept looking at each other and waiting for the other to hate it. It was an out-of-the-box hit for us. That almost never happens!”

Epic’s Team Glassman is on a roll heading toward the end of the year with Meghan Trainor f/John Legend’s “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” poised to make the Top 10 jump. It’s the #5 Greatest Gainer this week, while also Top 5 at iTunes and Top 3 on the Shazam chart. Travi$ Scott’s “Antidote” is at 50m in audience and hasn’t even charted yet; the major market airplay on this one is strong. Zara Larsson’s “Lush Life” is bubbling just under and has pulled in 55 stations so far.

Warner Bros.Gray, Dyer, Reich & Shih have Adam Lambert’s new track, “Another Lonely Night,” moving up the chart after two weeks in the Most Added category. There are 50+ stations on board already with Hits 1, B96, WKSC and WBLI leading the way. Jason Derulo’s new one, “Get Ugly” (Beluga Heights), is landing on desks today and has already been added at WBMP and KRUF prior to the 12/14 impact date.

RCA’s Riccitelli, JR, Daddio, Cooper & Strazza have Elle King’s “Ex’s and Oh’s” moving up inside the Top 10. The track is #4 on Shazam’s U.S. chart, #7 on the digital songs sales chart and has sold more than 70k singles this week. Pentatonix’s “Can’t Sleep Love” has charted with major support from Z100, Hits 1, B96 and WRNW. Sia’s “Alive” (Monkey Puzzle) pulled in KAMP and Venus last week to add to the growing list of stations, just as the song gets ready to chart. Chris Brown’s “Zero,” which charted this week, pulled in WPOW, WKSE and WPST last week and is now on over 60 pop stations. Tinashe f/Chris Brown’s “Player” is also moving toward the chart, as it pulls in WJHM, KEGY and WPOW. R. City f/Chloe Angelides’ “Make Up” is impacting Pop now and nabbed a ton of majors early; just to name a few, KHTS, WKSC, Z90 and Y100 are all already on board. Justin Timberlake’s “Drink You Away” is pulling in airplay after his appearance on the CMA Awards. KIIS, WHQC and WRVW all jumped out, and the track was the #5 best-selling single last week with 350k sold to date.

Artbeatz/RED’s Buch, Halpern & Weil continue to move Daya’s “Hideaway” up the chart. This week, it moves to #18 with big increases coming in from WODS, KSLZ and KZZP; expect it to continue to climb. RAL moves Shaggy f/Pitbull’s “Only Love” to #35, and Nelly f/Jeremih’s “The Fix” is just about to move Top 30 with new airplay coming in from WKSS, KPTT and Cumulus.

Capitol’s Rainey, Youngblood & Siciliano charted Tori Kelly’s “Hollow.” It moves to #33 this week with help from WAKS, KKDM and WZFT. Halsey’s “New Americana” (Astralwerks) moved Top 30 this week and is currently on 140+ stations. 5 Seconds of Summer’s “Hey Everybody!” has gone Top 25 after pulling in big increases from KZHT, Hits 1 and WKSE.

Republic’s CW, Spangler & Russell currently have Drake’s “Hotline Bling” (YMCMB) at #2. Ariana Grande’s “Focus” should move Top 10 this week, considering the great callout that’s posting currently. The Weeknd’s “In the Night” (XO) was this week’s Greatest Gainer, as it jumped all the way up to #15. Fall Out Boy f/Demi Lovato’s “Irresistible” (DCD2/Island), which moves up the chart to #27, scored KZZP, WKFS and WLDI last week. Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello’s “I Know What You Did Last…” (Island) jumped all the way up to #37 after being at the top of the Most Added category last week and pulling in some impressive call letters on impact.

Republic’s joint venture with Hollywood’s Finck, Smith and Ennis moves Demi Lovato’s “Confident” (Safehouse/Island/Hollywood) to #14 eight weeks after impact with big spin increases coming in from Hits 1, WWPW, WFLZ and WKST all based on research.

MUSIC WE LOVE: Lukas Graham’s “7 Years” (Warner Bros.), Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” (RBMG/Def Jam).
