Why is it still snowing on the East Coast?! Isn’t it spring yet? Anywho, there were some major gatherings in L.A. last week. Even though we weren’t cool enough to be in attendance, we hear that even with the “secret business” being discussed, a bunch of good times were also had, along with a little NCAA tourney-watching going on! Who’s still in?

Columbia’s Burruss, Bedard, Stevens and Brenner were at the top of the addboard for a second week in a row with Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road,” pulling in 44 new adds, including KAMP, KMVQ, KHKS and WIOQ. The social media action on this one is off the scales; if you’re seeking pop culture, look no further than this one! iHeart Brand Coordinator Mark Adams says, “In a matter of weeks, ‘Old Town Road’ has utterly exploded across multiple platforms, including TikTok, YouTube, streaming and socials. This is not just a song, as much as it is a pop cultural moment. The data is undeniable, and our airplay has been immediately reactive. The best part... cowboy hats are entirely optional!” The Chainsmokers f/5SOS’ “Who Do You Love” (Disruptor) is now Top 15 and growing, with new spin increases coming in from HITS 1, WBBM, WRVW and WRVQ.
