So Coachella, JazzFest and Stagecoach are all in the books for this year, and if you were able to attend any of them, you were definitely treated to some great live performances… Music fans are attending the big festivals in larger numbers than ever; let’s all hope the trend continues for the summer tours.

RCA’s Riccitelli, JR, Daddio & Cooper are holding down the #1 position on the chart for the fourth week in a row, and ZAYN’s “PILLOWTALK” has been in that seat for two weeks in a row now. GRACE f/G-Eazy’s “You Don’t Own Me” pulled in 22 new adds last week and is set to move Top 25. Pitbull f/Enrique Iglesias’ “Messin’ Around” is now on more than 100 Pop stations and has jumped up inside the Top 30. This week’s #2 Greatest Gainer of the week is P!nk’s “Just Like Fire,” which climbed up to #26 and pulled in Z100, WXXL and WKSS, along with six others. Sia f/Sean Paul’s “Cheap Thrills” (Monkey Puzzle) is #1 at Shazam worldwide and Top 10 on iTunes’ pop album chart. Alan Walker’s “Faded” is off to a great start with instant Shazam and sales numbers in airplay markets and should chart next week. Bubbling just under the chart is Elle King’s “America’s Sweetheart”; Hits 1, KUDD and WNCI all came in last week.

Def Jam’s Sackheim, Rothschild & Farag pulled in KHKS and KHFI on Alessia Cara’s “Wild Things” to add to the growing number of believers, as the track gets set to go Top 15. Iggy Azalea’s “Team” is now on more than 130 stations and looks ready to join the Top 20 this week. The research is starting to come in on Rihanna’s “Kiss It Better” (Westbury Road/Roc Nation) and all early research has it Top 5 in all cells; that should drive this one up the chart very quickly. Jeremih’s “Oui” has hit #1 at both Urban and Rhythm and is now climbing the Pop chart, as it moves to #34. Alesso’s “I Wanna Know” launched in the Most Added column and is now on 25+ stations. Impacting this week is Desiigner’s “Panda” (G.O.O.D.), which debuted prior to impact.

Epic’s Team Glassman is celebrating the Top 5 move on Fifth Harmony f/Ty Dolla $ign’s “Work From Home” (SYCO) and Zara Larsson & MNEK’s “Never Forget You” is headed up the chart right behind it, as it moves up inside the Top 10. Both have impressive iTunes and streaming numbers. Timeflies’ “Once in a While” is about to chart after being in the Most Added category for two weeks in a row. Kent Jones’ “Don’t Mind” (We The Best) is impacting and is already on WBMP, WODS, WWPW and Y100; look for this one to chart quickly. Meghan Trainor’s new single, “Me Too,” is next up.

Warner Bros.Gray, Dyer, Reich & Shih move up another notch this week with Lukas Graham’s “7 Years” and look set to move to the top of the chart. They also have Jason Derulo’s “If It Ain’t Love” (Beluga Heights) at #18 and are just a couple of stations short of clearing the panel, as Hits 1 and WAPE come on board. Bebe Rexha’s “No Broken Hearts” is just about to chart with 90 stations on board. Impacting this week is Disturbed’s “The Sound of Silence,” which already has believers in WEZB, WXSS and KUDD.

Mom+Pop’s David Jacobs continues to do a stellar job on Flume f/Kai’s “Never Be Like You.” With 160+ stations spinning and big spin increases coming in from WKSC, WDZH and KLIF this one should move Top 25 quickly.

Columbia’s Leipsner, Borris & Vaughan launched Calvin Harris f/Rihanna’s new “This Is What You Came For” last week, and it’s already heading toward the Top 30. It’s also the #1 iTunes song in over 60 territories at press time. Ruth B’s “Lost Boy” is now Top 20, as KZZP, WSNX and WKZL join in. The Chainsmokers f/Daya’s “Don’t Let Me Down” was a Top 5 Greatest Gainer again this week and should join the Top 5 shortly. Beyoncé’s “Sorry” is now the official single at Pop, as it starts to pull in big Pop and Rhythm call letters prior to the official nod.

Republic’s CW, Spangler & Russell are this close to moving Mike Posner’s “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” (Island) to #1. Meanwhile, “Ibiza” is #1 at Shazam globally, #1 at Shazam in the U.S. (for eight weeks) and Top 5 at Spotify currently. Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” is set to move Top 10 and just posted #2 RTM research, which should push that along nicely. Nick Jonas f/Tove Lo’s “Close” (Island) is on 180+ stations, and with the new research coming in from major markets, it’s set for the Top 10. Drake f/Wizkid & Kyla’s “One Dance” (YMCMB) has jumped up all the way to #16 and is this week’s Greatest Gainer, as his album debuts at #1 with huge streaming numbers to boot. "When Drake drops a track or album, our listeners are listening,” shared KEGY’s Chris Patyk. “We put ‘One Dance’ on the minute we got it and haven't stopped playing it in heavy ever since." Belly f/The Weeknd’s “Might Not” (CP/Roc Nation) is poised to chart with 66 stations on board.

Artbeatz/Red’s Buch, Halpern & Weil have moved Daya’s “Sit Still, Look Pretty” up to #36 and have 90+ stations on board, as Venus, KMVQ, WBMP and WHQC join this week.

Capitol’s Rainey, Youngblood & Siciliano have put 75+ stations on Jonas Blue’s “Fast Car”; KHTS, WHTS and WHHD—along with 24 others—added to the spin count this week, as the track edged closer to charting. Fun fact: It’s the #12 Most Shazamed track in the world.
