October, one of my very favorite months! College football, MLB Playoffs, the NBA is cranking up and, normally, we’d see a steady flow of major acts dropping new music. Well, it still feels like summer everywhere east of the Mississippi, and we’ve had so much new music the past few months that you have to wonder what the fourth quarter releases are going to look like. We hear there are a ton of releases coming in the next few weeks, so while we wait for fall to hit, at least we have lots to listen to.

Republic’s Spangler, Romeo and Dastur have Post Malone f/Young Thug’s “Goodbyes” heading toward the top of the chart with a closed-out panel. It remains in the Top 10 at Spotify and Shazam. Jonas Brothers’ “Only Human” is Top 5 bound with big increases coming in this week from WWWQ, WXKS and Y100. Post Malone’s “Circles”— #1 Spotify and #3 Shazam—was a Top 5 Greatest Gainer. Taylor Swift’s “Lover” pulled in new airplay from Venus, WKSC and WXSS last week and is heading Top 15. Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus & Lana Del Rey’s “Don’t Call Me Angel,” which now has 80m video views, joined the Top 25 this week. Lil Tecca’s “Ransom”—#1 U.S Streaming and #2 U.S. Spotify—enjoys new adds at Z100, KIIS and KBKS. Liam Payne f/Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s chartbound “Stack It Up” was one of the Most Added this week with 13 new adds, including WBLI and KUDD.
