So, did you have fun at Coachella? We hear there were some great performances and lots of great sightings off stage as well. The festivals and the summer shows are now in full swing, so let the fun and chaos begin! Jazzfest in NOLA is next, but you better bring your mud boots; it’s gonna rain.

For the second week in a row, RCA’s Riccitelli, JR, Daddio & Cooper have the #1 Mediabase track with G-Eazy f/Bebe Rexha’s “Me, Myself & I,” which also continues to post up big sales and streaming numbers. It looks like ZAYN’s “Pillowtalk” is moving to the top of the chart at press time, and with 330m streams to date, this one is Top 10 on the Shazam and Spotify charts. And speaking of huge streaming numbers, Sia f/Sean Paul’s “Cheap Thrills” is #3 at Shazam globally and #5 at Spotify globally; it’s also now on 115+ stations and moves to #36. Grace f/G-Eazy’s “You Don’t Own Me” moves up eight spots on the chart, pulling in WKFS, KRQQ and WDJX. Elle King’s “America’s Sweetheart” is on more than 40 stations, with Hits 1, KUDD, KMXV and WNCI all climbing on board. Alan Walker’s “FADED” has been the #1 Shazam record worldwide for seven weeks straight; new adds include WQMP, KKRZ and KHTS, as this one just gets started with airplay.

Columbia’s Leipsner, Borris & Vaughan jumped up inside the Top 20 with The Chainsmokers f/Daya’s “Don’t Let Me Down” this week. Tons of new rotation increases are stacking up, as WKQI, KQCH and KSMB all come on board. Ruth B’s “Lost Boy” pulls in KHKS, KNOU and KHFI, as the track moves Top 25 and the research numbers start to show the strength of the song. Both ZHU x Skrillex x THEY.’s “Working for It” and Little Mix‘s “Secret Love Song” (SYCO) are stacking up early airplay and looking to chart.

Epic’s Team Glassman now has three tracks in the Top 10. Meghan Trainor’s “NO,” which closed out the radio panel, is #7 and Top 10 at Shazam, and Fifth Harmony f/Ty Dolla $ign’s “Work From Home” (SYCO) is on 180+ stations, #9 on the chart and continues to be at the top of the streaming charts, while Zara Larsson & MNEK’s “Never Forget You” is #10, #3 at Shazam and Top 10 at iTunes. Jennifer Lopez’s “Aint Your Mama,” which sold 40k singles last week on impact, is now on 20+ stations. Impacting this week is Timeflies’ “Once in a While.”

Republic’s CW, Spangler & Russell have DNCE’s “Cake by the Ocean” at #2 this week and are looking to tip it in. Mike Posner’s “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” is also heading toward the top of chart; it’s currently at #4 and is the 5th Greatest Gainer, as it continues to makes its way up. Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” is now Top 15, and with a #3 RTM score, it’s moving into power rotation everywhere. Nick Jonas f/Tove Lo’s “Close” moves to #18. That one just posted #1 RTM numbers after an amazing SNL performance. There’s really great callout on James Bay’s “Let It Go,” which earned #1 RTM honors, as the track gets ready to move Top 20 at Mediabase. Drake f/Wizkid & Kyla’s “One Dance” debuted at #32 this week and is #1 on iTunes, #1 at Spotify and #1 at Shazam. Impacting this week is Belly f/The Weeknd’s “Might Not” (CP/Roc Nation) which moves over from Rhythm, where it’s heading #1.

Capitol’s Rainey, Youngblood & Siciliano have Troye Sivan’s “Youth” heading Top 15 this week, with more than 143 stations on board; Hits 1, Z100, KIIS and KKRZ are all big believers. Halsey’s “Colors” (Astralwerks) is kicking in, and her MAC lipstick campaign is very impressive. Jonas Blue f/Dakota’s “Fast Car” is now the #11 Most Shazamed song in the world; it’s also the #11 at Spotify globally, with 2m streams a day. Jay Shannon of iHeart Dallas says, “Sounds amazing on the air, instant familiarity for CHR and adult CHR. It’s early on and we’re already seeing strong Shazam interest in Dallas as well. You need to take a strong look at this.”

Warner Bros.Gray, Dyer, Reich & Shih are watching Lukas Graham’s “7Years” zoom up the chart. As more and more majors move into power rotation, this one looks destined for the top of the chart, where it’s currently #7 and climbing. Jason Derulo’s “If It Ain’t Love” is now on 170+ stations; WNKS, Music Choice and KCHZ all joined the party last week, as the track gets ready to move Top 20. Bebe Rexha f/Nicki Minaj’s “No Broken Hearts” launched last week and already has 60 stations on board, including WKTU, KKHH, WDZH and KTFM, and it looks ready to chart next week.

Mom+Pop’s David Jacobs was all smiles this weekend at Coachella, as Flume delivered one of the most talked-about performances. “Never Be Like You,” featuring Kai, moves to #33, as the streaming numbers and the sales numbers grow higher each day. KDIS, WDJX and WERO are all new this week.

Artbeatz/Red’s Buch, Weil and Halpern charted Daya’s “Sit Still, Look Pretty,“ which posted major market call letters this week in KDWB, WAKS and KHTS.

Def Jam’s Sackheim, Rothschild & Farag edge Justin Bieber’s “Company” (RBMG) closer to the Top 15 this week, and they’ve already closed out the panel on that one. Alessia Cara’s “Wild Things” pulls in big spin increases from WKSC, WWMX and KUDD, as the track makes its Top 20 debut. Iggy Azalea’s “Team” moves up a notch to #24 and has all but cleared the panel; look for big spin increases, as this one’s starting to react. Lastly, Rihanna’s “Kiss It Better” (Westbury Road/Roc Nation) jumped up inside the Top 30, after two weeks in the Most Added column.

MUSIC WE LOVE: Ben Rector’s “Brand New” (Aptly Named/ROAR/Caroline/Capitol), DNCE’s “Toothbrush” (Republic).
