THE BALLSTREET JOURNAL

What another great weekend for sports! The Orioles are the only undefeated team in the Majors (6-0 as I type this), and the NBA playoffs are right around the corner. And did you see Jordan Spieth completely collapse on the last few holes in the final round of The Masters? It was his to win; he was in complete control. It was tough to watch a major slip right through his hands. Anyone who has EVER played golf has most certainly ruined a round with a few errant shots, but he was playing so well. It really puts into perspective just how dominant Tiger Woods was in the early 2000s.

Before I get into chart details, I’d like to offer a much deserved round of applause for Def Jam's Noah Sheer on his promotion to SVP, a true testament of his abilities and relationships. Congrats Noah! Speaking of Def Jam and Noah, he and the team of Rick Sackheim and Scott Maness still have Rihanna f/Drake’s “Work” (Westbury Road/Roc Nation) at #1, where it has dominated for the last seven weeks. Even better, they’re positioned to replace her with Jeremih’s “Oui” next week. It was up 230 spins and moves to #2. Justin Bieber’s “Company” (RBMG) gains 150 spins and climbs to #21, while Desiigner’s “Panda” (G.O.O.D) explodes in airplay yet again, up a whopping 510 spins, leaping to #22. Kanye West’s “Famous” (G.O.O.D) debuts this week at #38, thanks in part to a 275-spin increase, but Iggy Azalea’s “Team” just misses the chart at #41. It was up 100 spins, and is sure to debut this coming week. The new Rihanna single, “Needed Me,” was up 300 spins to land at #50. This also looks to debut this coming week.


Epic’s Sujit Kundu has Fifth Harmony f/Ty Dolla $ign’s “Work From Home” (SYCO) knocking on the Top 10’s door. It was up another 450 spins this week to land at #11. Future f/The Weeknd’s “Low Life” (A1/Freebandz) moves to #19, gaining 135 spins. Meghan Trainor’s “NO” comes in at #26, up 230 spins, while Zara Larsson’s “Never Forget You” ascends to #33 after posting a 200-spin increase. Yo Gotti f/E-40’s “Law” (CMG) debuts this week at #39. And after huge exposure via the American Idol finale, they’re impacting Jennifer Lopez’s “Ain’t Your Mama” this week.

Republic’s Gary Spangler, Davey Dee and Stef Cole continue to grow Belly f/The Weeknd’s “Might Not” (CP/Roc Nation), as it moves to #3, gaining 355 spins. Mike Posner’s “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” (Island) gains 230 spins and sticks at #9. The Weeknd’s “Acquainted” (XO) is at #13 with a 100-spin increase. Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” increases by 150 spins and moves to #24, while Drake f/Wizkid &Kyla’s “One Dance” (YMCMB) amasses 500+ new spins to nearly chart. Drizzy released two tracks at once, and the other, entitled “Pop Style” f/The Throne (Jay Z and Kanye), was up 300 spins. Nick Jonas f/Tove Lo’s “Close” (Island) is now inside the Top 50, gaining 230 spins this week.

Columbia’s Ayelet Schiffman and James White debut The Chainsmokers f/Daya’s “Don’t Let Me Down” (Disruptor) at #34, powered by a 220-spin gain. They also have a real buzz record in Domo Genesis f/Anderson .Paak’s “Dapper,” which is seeing mixshow spins at format tastemakers HOT97 New York, Power 106 L.A., KKFR Phoenix and WZMX Hartford.


Dixie Tipton and Capitol have Young Greatness’ “Moolah” (QC/Motown) at #31, gaining 180 spins. She’s also a few weeks away from impacting Niykee Heaton f/Migos’ “Bad Intentions.”

Lee L’Heureux and Warner Bros. have Jason Derulo’s “If It Ain’t Love” (Beluga Heights) just missing the chart at #44. It gains 245 spins and will debut this coming week.

RCA’s Inca and Lori G have Chris Brown’s “Back to Sleep” at #4 and Kid Ink’s “Promise” at #7. ZAYN’s “PILLOWTALK” is at #15, up 165 spins, and Bryson Tiller’s “Exchange” lands at #18 this week thanks to a 225+-spin increase. Ro James’ “Permission” (ByStorm) comes in at #45, while Snakehips f/Tinashe’s “All My Friends” lands at #70.
