Well, we’re in the heat of summer and the music that’s dropping right now couldn’t be hotter!

RCA’s Riccitelli, JR and Daddio are enjoying their stay at the top of the chart with Khalid’s “Talk” (Right Hand). With 500m+ streams, this one just continues to build. Marshmello x Kane Brown’s “One Thing Right” (Joytime Collective) has been in the Top 10 Most Added column for two weeks, scoring 55+ adds, which include WIHT, WODS, KALV and KZHT and is set to chart. Mark Ronson f/Camila Cabello’s “Find U Again” is now Top 25 with 135 stations on board. Martin Garrix f/Macklemore & Patrick Stump’s “Summer Days” is Top 30; spin leaders include HITS 1, WXSS and KBKS. Kygo & Whitney Houston’s “Higher Love” has some impressive early airplay posting from WPOW, WKTU and WKSS.

Republic’s Spangler, Romeo and Dastur has the #1 Most Added track this week, as Post Malone f/Young Thug’s “Goodbyes” posts 132 stations on impact. It was the #3 Greatest Gainer even though it only had two days of airplay. B96 MD/PD Erik Bradley says, “Post Malone does it again. ‘Goodbyes’ feels like it’ll follow the same path to #1 as ‘Sunflower,’ ‘Wow,’ ‘Better Now,’ ‘Psycho,’ etc.” Shawn Mendes’ “If I Can’t Have You” (Island) is Top 5 and also one of the week’s Greatest Gainers. Jonas Brothers’ “Cool” is now Top 10, and the callout that’s popping up is massive. Taylor Swift’s “You Need to Calm Down” has closed out the panel and is set to join the Top 10. Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello’s “Señorita” (Island) is set to join the Top 15. The song—#1 Spotify global and Top 5 iTunes—was the week’s Greatest Gainer. Jonas Brothers’ “Only Human” debuted after their #1 Most Added week.  And Tove Lo’s chartbound “Glad He’s Gone” (Island) is now on 45+ stations.

Crush Music’s Erik Olesen has another smash hit on his hands, as Panic! At The Disco’s “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” looks set to join the Top 5. With massive research, this one should continue to climb.

Over at 12Tone Music, Team Palmese has Christian Paul’s “Strong” set to join the chart with 30+ stations onboard; stations include WKSL, which just got back very strong M Score rankings this week. LIVVIA’s “Dizzy” is chartbound with 20+ early commitments.

Warner’s Chester, Dyer, Reich and Shih have two tracks climbing in the Top 20. Bryce Vine f/YG’s “La La Land” (Sire) has 150+ stations spinning, and big increases are in from WZFT, WNCI and KUDD. Meanwhile, Dan + Shay’s “Speechless,” which already has 130m+ Spotify streams, pulled in major market airplay from KRBE and WWWQ. Blanco Brown’s “The Git Up” officially impacts 7/16 but has already posted 41 adds to date; not to mention, there are 700m+ viral video views. 

Interscope’s Romano and Lopes have Ellie Goulding & Juice WRLD’s “Hate Me”—#2 Most Added on impact. With 70+ stations spinning, this one appears chartbound already.  Billie Eilish’s “bad guy” (Darkroom) shows no signs of slowing down. It moves Top 5 as a Greatest Gainer both in spins and in audience; it’s also #1 on the consumption chart. 5 Seconds of Summer’s “Easier” is set to join the Top 15, and that Top 5 RTM research should help! Avicii f/Aloe Blacc’s “SOS” (Avicii/Geffen) was among the Most Added this week. That one’s on 50+ stations as it heads toward the chart; early adds include WODS, Z90, WHQC and WNCI.

Capitol’s Marella, Nolletti, Siciliano and Acampora have Katy Perry’s “Never Really Over” heading toward the Top 10. Halsey’s “Nightmare”—Top 15 at Shazam U.S.—is Top 15 with an almost closed-out panel. Lewis Capaldi’s “Someone You Loved” moved Top 25, following an amazing performance on the Today Show.

Caroline’s Halpern and Scales have SHAED’s “Trampoline” (Photo Finish) set to join the Top 30 with spins increasing, posting from WXXL, WBBM, KBKS and WIHT. CYN’s “Holy Roller” (Unsub Records) has 30 stations spinning and is headed toward the chart with KHKS leading the charge. As it heads toward the chart, Judah & The Lion’s “Why Did You Run” pulled in new airplay from WNCI, KBKS, WKRZ and WFLY.

Columbia’s Burrus, Bedard, Stevens and Brenner welcomed the arrival of Beyoncé’s “Spirit”—the lead track from the Lion King soundtrack—and within hours it soared into the Top 5 at iTunes. The Chainsmokers f/Bebe Rexha’s “Call You Mine” (Disruptor) scored big adds this week from KHFI, KHKS and WFLZ, along with six others, as they move toward the Top 20.  One week before impact, Lil Nas X’s “Panini” lands in the Most Added column with 10 adds, including KYLD and Music Choice. And speaking of viral sensations, they have more on the horizon.

Epic’s Sackheim, Afloarei and Dimig had a huge week on Zara Larsson’s “All the Time” (Ten), which was Most Added with Z100, WKTU, KYLD and WXKS. Look for it to chart this week. Kaskade & Meghan Trainor’s “With You” was the #3 Most Added track, pulling in majors KDIS, WIHT, WPOW and WKFS, just to name a few. Then there’s DJ Khaled f/SZA’s “Just Us” (We the Best)—now Top 20, with 150+ stations on board.
