And we’re back … or at least it sure feels like it if you’re looking at all the new releases that are dropping by the majors. It truly feels great to have multiple new tracks being released from artists… unless you’re the PDs trying to figure out how to add four tracks at a time! Oh well, these are good problems to have!

Columbia’s Gray, Burruss, Bedard, Stevens & Brenner continue their extra hot streak with The Kid LAROI & Justin Bieber’s “Stay” as the #1 Most Added track this week. It scored a whopping 137 adds out of the box and it’s already Top 25 in just a few days. Lil Nas X’s “MONTERO (Call Me by Your Name)” has reached the #1 position on the Mediabase chart after a 14-week campaign. BTS’ “Butter” is currently Top 10 and they’ve just had a 6th week at #1 on the Hot 100. Polo G’s “RAPSTAR” is starting to cross over after massive success at Rhythm and Urban. It’s now in the Top 30 and still climbing. Columbia, along with RECORDSStrazza, have Nelly & Florida Georgia Line’s “Lil Bit” in the Top 15. They’ve done a great promo job of getting radio to pay attention to this real hit!

Arista’s Team Petropoulos are feeling better than okay as Tai Verdes’ “A-O-K” heads to the Top 25 with 100+ stations onboard. It pulled in new adds this week from KBFF, KBKS and Y100

Speaking of being on fire, RCA’s Rothschild, Maldonado, JR & Daddio keep dropping heat after heat. This week they launched Kane Brown & blackbear’s “Memory,” pulling in 52 adds from stations like Z100, KRBE, KDWB and KZHT. Doja Cat’s “You Right” f/The Weeknd (XO/Kemosabe/Republic) has almost-closed-out the panel and is now Top 15 bound. Tate McRae X Khalid’s “working” is also heading toward the Top 15 and spinning on 170+ stations with 20m global streams in just two weeks. 

Virgin’s Halpern & Applegate are stacking up the adds on NF’s “Just Like You” (NF Real). The Top 30 record currently has 95 stations on board and has pulled in new airplay this week from WBLI, WIHT and WKFS.

Republic’s Spangler & Lucas impacted Post Malone’s latest release, “Motley Crew,” with 90 adds out of the box. The track immediately charted and is now Top 30 bound in its first week of airplay. Marshmello’s “Leave Before You Love Me” f/Jonas Brothers is now sitting in the Top 15 and is Top 5 at U.S. Shazam. Tomorrow X Together’s “Magic” has charted with 60+ stations on board and heads for the Top 30. Nic D’s “Fine Apple” is gearing up to chart with help from 45+ stations, including HITS1, B96, WKSC and KALV. Republic, teamed with Island’s Schiffman, are off to a terrific start with Trinidad Cardona’s “Dinero.” It was back in the Top 10 Most Added column this week and is set to chart thanks to a little help from TikTok. “One of the best parts of the ‘job’ is helping to break new artists. Trinidad and his vibe seem like the sound Chicago needs, and we are excited to give our audience what they yearn for in 2021: fun music. Excited to see this thing go and for Trinidad to shine,” said Brady Broski, APD/MD, WKSC.

Capitol’s Marella, Nolletti, Acampora & Siciliano have Duncan Laurence’s “Arcade” set to join the Top 15 as one of the Greatest Gainers this week and has Greatest Audience Gainers with Power Research popping up in major markets. Tesher X Jason Derulo’s “Jalebi Baby” is chartbound with 185m+ streams.

Warner’s Chester, Dyer & Reich put Dua Lipa’s “Love Again” back in The Top 5 Most Added column this week with 31 adds from the likes of HITS1, WIOQ, WXKS and KBKS. This one is set to join the Top 20. They also put Bella Poarch’s “Build A Bitch” in the Top 10 Most Added with another 8 adds. It’s currently spinning on 128 stations and heading toward the Top 25.

Interscope’s Romano & Lopes have not one, but two Olivia Rodrigo tracks heading for the top of the chart. The teen phenom’s “good 4 u” and “deja vu” both move up inside the Top 5.
