Wow, the 4th quarter is loaded with superstar releases that are definitely firing up the charts. 

Republic's Spangler and Romeo have still got their heads spinning from the massive first week numbers posted on the Taylor Swift drop; consumption numbers were 1.6m U.S. and 3m worldwide. And now for the Mediabase charts! Taylor’s "Anti-Hero" was closed-out at both Pop and Hot AC on impact. It’s already climbing up inside the Top 15 at Pop and is Top 10 at Hot AC, while "Bejeweled" was Top 10 Most Added this week. Nicki Minaj's "Super Freaky Girl" is Top 10 after pulling in Power rotation increases at WWPW, KBKS, KZZP and WKQI. The Weeknd’s "Die for You" (XO) heads Top 10 as one of the week's Greatest Gainers once again as Stephen Sanchez's "Until I Found You" (Mercury) joins the Top 15 with 160m+ U.S. streams to date. Meanwhile, Morgan Wallen’s "Wasted on You" (Big Loud) enters the Top 20 as Drake’s "Jimmy Cooks" f/21 Savage (OVO/Epic) makes its chart debut. Republic and Island's team Schiffman also launched charlieonnafriday’s "Enough" and it was one of the Top 10 Most Added tracks on impact. Securing early airplay from B96, HITS1, KHKS, KALV and WEZB, it’s currently chartbound.  

Def Jam's team Sheer also had a massive launch as Rihanna's "Lift Me Up" took Most Added honors at six formats, which is a Mediabase record with 519 total adds posted on impact; it is, of course, this week's Greatest Gainer and is already headed for the Top 20. 

Warner’s Chester, Dyer & Reich have David Guetta & Bebe Rexha’s “I’m Good (Blue)” notching up inside the Top 10. WPOW PD, Will Calder, says, “This song, with its familiar Eiffel 65 sample and infectious IDGAF lyrics, is the perfect recipe for a song that just makes you feel good at a time when people just want to feel good.” Omar Apollo’s “Evergreen” officially charts after pulling in some heavy majors like HITS1, WKSC, KMVQ, Y100 and WKQI. 

BMG’s team Leipsner put AJR’s “World’s Smallest Violin” in the Top 25 this week. It’s spinning on 110 stations, including Z100, KIIS, KYLD, KRBE and WIHT, with new adds this week from WTDY and KSLZ

Capitol’s Marella, Nolletti, Acampora & Siciliano also have a flame throwing hit with Sam Smith & Kim Petras’ “Unholy.” We hear the research stories on this one are through the roof!  It’s heading Top 5 and is Top 5 on Spotify’s Today’s Top Hits and iTunes.

Over at RCA, Rothschild, Maldonado, JR & Daddio have Steve Lacy’s “Bad Habit” (L-M) eyeing the #1 spot with Power and Sub Power moves stacking up at Z100, KIIS, WKSC and WXKS, to name a few. The track should get there quickly. Tate McRae’s “uh oh” was once again in the Top 10 Most Added column. Posting adds from KIIS, KBKS, KDHT and WNKS, it’s currently on 135+ stations as it heads toward the Top 30. Chris Brown’s “Under the Influence” (Chris Brown Ent.) has charted and is on 70+ stations. It was also a Most Added track this week with stations including WWPW and WWWQ

Epic’s Sackheim, Afloarei & Dimig enjoyed a big drop this week from Meghan Trainor as “Made You Look” is #1 in TikTok video creations and blowing up on all the streaming services. With 17m+ streams, it was just added at Spotify’s Today’s Top Hits and posted airplay at WBLI, HITS1, KENZ and WBZZ.
