Kali Uchis’ “telepatía” (Virgin EMI) is breaking fast and already Top 25 after four consecutive weeks in the Top 10 Most Added column. “’Telepatia’ is the BOP in Miami right now. Driving with windows down, that song makes sitting in traffic fun,” said Y100 PD, Taylor Jukes.

Warner’s Chester, Dyer & Reich are also heating things up with Dua Lipa’s “We’re Good.” It sits just outside the Top 10 right now with research popping up everywhere. Saweetie’s “Best Friend” f/Doja Cat is now Top 15 with 170+ stations on board and sees big rotation increases coming in from WWPW, WHQC and KXXM.

Columbia’s Gray, Burress, Bedard, Stevens & Brenner are delivering BTS platinum plaques as they set up to impact their newest single, “Butter.” Look for this one to land atop the Most Added column. Lil Nas X’s “MONTERO (Call Me by Your Name)” was once again a Top 5 Greatest Gainer with another 1000+ spin increase this week; this one is already in the Top 20.

Annika Wells’ “Sucks Being Sober” is chartbound with support from KTFM, WPLW, WVHT and WERO

Def Jam’s Farag has Justin Bieber “Peaches” f/Daniel Caesar & GIVĒON eyeing the #1 spot. Only six weeks since it impacted radio, this one has a closed-out panel and should hit the coveted top spot very soon.

RCA’s Rothschild, Maldonado, JR & Daddio see another 26 adds come in on Riton X Nightcrawlers’ “Friday” f/Mufusa & Hypeman. It heads toward the chart as the #3 Most Added record this week.
