By the look and feel of things, it is going to be a very busy summer. There’s so much music dropping (almost daily) at every label; it seems like the flood gates have opened! And with the fewer number of new music slots at radio these days, it’s gonna be a long, hard-fought summer. Hang on tight.

RCA’s Riccitelli, JR, Daddio & Cooper have the new #1 this week with G-Eazy f/Bebe Rexha’s “Me, Myself and I,” which has sold more than a million singles to date. ZAYN’s “Pillowtalk” looks to be headed toward the top, as it gets ready to move Top 5 this week. Sia f/Sean Paul’s “Cheap Thrills” (Monkey Puzzle) is now #3 worldwide at Shazam and #7 on Spotify’s global chart, while pulling instant reaction in L.A., NYC, Boston, Miami and more markets. Grace f/G-Eazy’s “You Don’t Own Me” is set to move Top 30 and just pulled in Premium Choice to add to the 70 stations already on board. Elle King’s “America’s Sweetheart” moves closer to the chart with new adds from Hits 1, KMXV and WNCI. Snakehips f/Tinashe & Chance the Rapper’s “All My Friends” pulled in WBMP, KBFF and WKSC. That one has 110m+ Spotify streams worldwide.

Def Jam’s Sackheim, Rothschild & Farag have Justin Bieber’s “Company” (RBMG) ready to move Top 15, and there are big new spin increases coming in from Z100, KCHZ and WWPW. Alessia Cara’s “Wild Things” has new airplay at Hits 1, KUDD and Q100, as she moves up inside the Top 20. Look for her on tour this summer with Coldplay; she’ll be joining them for their U.S. and U.K. legs this summer. Iggy Azalea’s “Team” is now Top 25 with 115 adds so far, and WFLC, WDCG and KSME are all already on board for this week. Rihanna’s “Kiss It Better” (Westbury Road/Roc Nation) pulled in 50+ stations on impact; this week’s new adds include KHKS, KEGY, KHFI and WKSE. The track charted one week after impact and looks to be heading Top 30 alaready. Jeremih’s “Oui” has already pulled in a bunch of majors and is just about to chart; WXSS and KLUC are on board early TW.

Columbia’s Leipsner, Borris & Vaughan are just about to push The Chainsmokers f/Daya’s “Don’t Let Me Down” Top 20. The track was the #2 Greatest Gainer this week and has 150+ stations on board. Ruth B’s “Lost Boy”— Top 5 RTM with teens—is set go Top 25 in airplay and has new commitments from WWPW, Q100, WBHT and WNFN. Little Mix’s “Secret Love Song” (SYCO) is impacting this week with early airplay from Radio Disney, WQEN and WWMX.

Capitol’s Rainey, Youngblood & Siciliano continue to grow Troye Sivan’s “Youth” inside the Top 20, and the streams continue to be at the top of the U.S. charts. Halsey’s “Colors” (Astralwerks), which charted this week, is on more than 66 stations, with WIOQ, KLIF, WXKS and Music Choice all lending their support. Meanwhile, Jonas Blue’s “Fast Car” is the #11 Most Shazamed song in the world and #11 on Spotify’s global chart with 2m streams a day.

Epic’s Team Glassman has three of the fastest moving tracks on the charts—that includes the sales chart, the Mediabase chart and the streaming charts; Meghan Trainer’s “No” is now #9 and (while #1 at iTunes), Fifth Harmony f/Ty Dolla $ign’s “Work From Home” is #11 (while #5 at iTunes) and Zara Larsson & MNEK’s “Never Forget You” is #12 in airplay and the #3 Most Shazamed song in the country. Oh, and now we drop Jennifer Lopez’s “Ain’t Your Mama.” After she debuted it on the American Idol finale, it jumped into the Top 15 at iTunes.

Mom+Pop’s David Jacobs has moved Flume f/Kai’s “Never Be Like You” to #35 this week, following two weeks in the Most Added column. New adds include KLUC, WKSL and WEZB, while big spin increases are coming from KMVQ, WHQC and WZPL this week as well.

Artbeatz/RED’s Buch, Weil and Halpern have held Daya’s “Sit Still, Look Pretty” in the Most Added column for two weeks in a row, as it bubbles just under the chart. New airplay from Y100, WNOW and WWMX should help push it over TW.

That one charted a few days after impact and is currently #28 with 170+ stations on board. Lukas Graham’s “7 Years” is now Top 10 and climbing, as he appears on all the late night shows. Bebe Rexha f/Nicki Minaj’s “No Broken Hearts” is impacting this week; the majors are starting to stack up already, as WDZH, WZMP, KLIF and KHTS come in early.

Republic’s CW, Spangler & Russell are impacting Drake f/Wizkid & Kyla’s “One Dance” (YMCMB) TW, just as DNCE’s “Cake by the Ocean” gets set to go #1, which should happen with the new chart next week. Mike Posner’s “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” (Island) has moved up to #7 and is still climbing, and Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” is now Top 15 and has cleared the panel. Nick Jonas f/Tove Lo’s “Close” (Island) makes the jump to Top 20, and WBMP, WDJX and WHBQ all climb on board. James Bay’s “Let It Go” continues to move up inside the Top 30.
