POP MART

Only two more reporting weeks! And with the holidays in full swing, the release schedule has started to slow down a bit as we all look forward to the break.

Capitol’s Marella, Nolletti and Siciliano are enjoying another week at the top of the chart with Marshmello & Bastille’s “Happier.” Halsey’s “Without Me”—one of the week’s Greatest Gainers—joins the Top 10 and looks like it’ll be Top 5 shortly.



Def Jam’s Farag and Rothschild continue to build airplay on Alessia Cara’s “Trust My Lonely,” which is currently Top 30. Big increases are in this week from WIHT, WWKL and KENZ.

Columbia’s Leipsner, Bedard, Stevens and Brenner posted another 15 adds on The Chainsmokers f/Kelsea Ballerini’s “This Feeling” (Disruptor). It was the #3 Most Added track at Pop as it moves toward the Top 20. Silk City f/Dua Lipa’s “Electricity,” which has all but closed out the panel, is heading Top 15.

Interscope’s Romano and Lopes still have a full plate of projects working their way up the chart. Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper’s “Shallow”—Top 10 Shazam worldwide and #2 on Spotify’s Today’s Top Hits—is heading Top 20 in airplay and was one of the week’s Top 10 Greatest Gainers. benny blanco, Halsey & Khalid’s “Eastside” (Friends Keep Secrets) is also on the Greatest Gainer list and is heading Top 5. That one’s got 360m+ Spotify plays and 225m+ YouTube views. DJ Snake f/Selena Gomez, Ozuna & Cardi B’s “Taki Taki” is Top 25, pulling in new airplay from KNOU, KUDL, WXXL and KCHZ. Ellie Goulding x Diplo f/Swae Lee’s “Close to Me” was Most Added this week, scoring adds from 20 more stations, including KLIF, KBKS, WNCI and WEZB. benny blanco & Calvin Harris’ “I Found You” (Friends Keep Secrets)—also in the Most Added column—is now on 35+ stations. There are 9m+ Spotify plays and 7m YouTube views already.

Warner Bros.Dyer, Reich and Shih impacted Bad Bunny f/Drake’s “MIA” (OVO Sound). Leading the way are Music Choice, KAMP, KIIS and WBBM. It’s #3 Spotify global and Top 15 Shazam in the U.S., as well as globally, and already chartbound. Dan + Shay’s “Tequila” (Warner Nashville) is set to join the Top 30. Lukas Graham’s “Love Somebody” pulled in eight more adds this week, including WBLI, WZFT and WZPL. Rita Ora’s “Let You Love Me” is also chartbound with 75+ stations onboard, including WKSS, KMVQ and WKQI.

Republic’s Spangler, Russell and Dastur have Ariana Grande on fire, with both “breathin”—currently #3—and “thank u, next”—now #16—in the Top 3 Greatest Gainer column. And they’re moving up fast. “Ariana having three tracks on the chart is quite an impressive feat, and CHR radio is grateful for the hits right now,” shared Radio Animal Media Consulting’s Dom Theodore. Post Malone & Swae Lee’s “Sunflower” is Top 15 in airplay while Top 10 in U.S. consumption. Drake f/M Jackson’s “Don’t Matter to Me” (YMCMB) is heading Top 25, with new spin increases coming in from KMVQ, WPOI and WNVZ. Dean Lewis’ “Be Alright” (Island) is Top 30 with 150+ stations onboard. Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine’s chartbound “Ain’t Easy” (Big Machine) pulled in new adds from WXKB, WFHN and WLAN. Jack & Jack’s “No One Compares to You” (Island) is now on 30+ stations, including KHTS, WHYI and KMVQ.

RCA’s Riccitelli, JR, Daddio and Cooper are launching Mark Ronson f/Miley Cyrus’ new one, “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart,” and we hear it’s going to run up the chart quickly. Lots of people are already talking about it. Khalid’s “Better” (Right Hand)—now Top 25—continues to stack on majors; new this week are KHKS and WIHT.



Epic’s Sackheim, Afloarei and Dimig have two tracks climbing up inside the Top 20. Camila Cabello’s “Consequences” (SYCO), whose spin leaders include WBLI, WZPL and HITS 1, has all but closed out the panel, and Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode” (Cactus Jack/Grand Hustle) is posting impressive callout that we hear is driving the climb up the chart. Meanwhile, AJ Mitchell’s “Girls” has officially charted, while he’s out on a 60-city nationwide promo tour. And Zara Larsson’s “Ruin My Life” was once again in the Most Added Column, with Z100 and WBBM both posting this week.

MUSIC WE LOVE: Ella Mai’s “Trip” (10 Summers/Interscope), XXXTentacion x Lil Pump’s “Arms Around You” (Bad Vibes Forever/EMPIRE/Warner Bros.).
