And I thought Bobby Poe’s conventions had a lot of action! I refuse to get political, but damn, people, there is some serious stuff happening right now! Please don’t sit back and comment from your armchair. Get out, be involved and VOTE! If not, you maybe very unhappy come November. And now to the business of the music.

RCA’s Riccitelli, JR, Daddio and Cooper got to celebrate their #1 on Sia’s “Cheap Thrills” (Monkey Puzzle) while at their meeting in NYC this week; always a great feeling when it works out like that! Pink’s “Just Like Fire” climbs up to #7 and is just shy of closing out the panel.  Britney Spears f/G-Eazy’s “Make Me…” quickly moved up inside the Top 25 and was one of this week’s Greatest Gainers. Frankie’s “New Obsession” is on 30+ stations including KDIS, WNCI and WZPL. 5 Seconds of Summer’s “Girls Talk Boys” launched and scored 60+ stations with big believers on board like HITS1, WWWQ and WDZH.

Columbia’s Leipsner, Borris and Vaughan jumped Calvin Harris f/Rihanna’s “This Is What You Came For” up to #2 this week and are poised to be the next #1 at Pop. Adele’s “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” (XL) with, once again, a 1000+ spin increase is ready to make the Top 10 move. The new The Chainsmokers f/Halsey’s “Closer” lands at radio on 7/29.

Def Jam’s Sackheim, Rothchild and Farag dropped Major Lazer f/Justin Bieber & MO’s “Cold Water” (Mad Decent) and in mere hours it had charted and ended up landing in the Top 30 after just a few days of spins making it the week’s Greatest Gainer. Look for it to be at the top of the Add Board for the week. Alessia Cara’s “Scars To Your Beautiful” impacts this week and tons of majors have already stepped up to the plate: WBMP, WIOQ, WBLI and Y100; currently there are 2.6million views on the video. Rihanna’s “Needed Me” (Westbury Road/Roc Nation) is #9 on theMediabase Power Play List and is on more than 145 stations.

There are 22 million views on the Olympics video and the official video drops 7/28. Ben Rector’s “Brand New” (Aptly Named/Caroline) is Top 30 and on over 95+ stations; the track is also set to move Top 5 at Hot AC.

Oh, and it is sitting at #38 already! Also impacting this week is Hailee Steinfeld & Grey f/Zedd’s “Starving,” which should easily wind up in the Most Added Column. Shawn Mendes’ “Treat You Better” (Island) is now #9 and climbing. DNCE’s “Toothbrush” continues to grow spins and is looking to move Top 15. Ariana Grande’s “Into You” was one of the week’s Greatest Gainers and moves up to #17, and has all but closed out the panel already.
