After eight weeks it looks like we will have a new #1 song at Rhythm, as Kendrick Lamar finally succeeds DJ Khaled with “Loyalty” f/ Rihanna (TDE/Interscope), and RiRi replaces herself at #1, becoming the undisputed queen of features. Meanwhile, former Ri collaborator Calvin Harris enters the Top 10 with "Feels" f/Pharrell, Katy Perry and Big Sean (Columbia), while J Balvin's “Mi Gente” (UMLE/Republic) and Travis Scott's “Butterfly Effect" (Grand Hustle/Epic) climb into the Top 20. Chris Brown's “Questions” (RCA) continues to build quickly, as does Taylor Swift's “Look What You Made Me Do” (Big Machine/Republic). And finally, Maroon 5's “What Lovers Do” f/ SZA (RCA) will debut this week.
RCA was busy this week, as they post up Most Added with G-Eazy's “No Limit” f/ A$AP RockyCardi B with 20 adds, while pulling down another 10 stations for Miguel's “Sky Walker” f/ Travis Scott. Meanwhile, Def Jam came in second with Fabolous & Chris Brown's “Flip Mode," landing 17 new commitments. Columbia has 7 adds come in on Tyler The Creator's “See You Again," while Capitol closes 5 early believers on Sam Smith's “Too Good At Goodbyes."
For the seventh straight week, DJ Khaled f/ Rihanna & Bryson Tiller's "Wild Thoughts" (We The Best/Epic) will be #1. Kendrick Lamar's "Loyalty" f/RiRi (TDE/Interscope) sits behind it at #2, a week away from having enough momentum to overtake the top spot. Yo Gotti's "Rake It Up" f/ Nicki Minaj (CMG/Epic) enters the Top 10, while there's solid gains from Justin Bieber & Bloodpop's "Friends" (GPOP/RBMG/SB/Def Jam/Republic) and Chris Brown's "Questions" (RCA). The three-day mixshow weekends from the past Labor Day holiday really affected the chart, but things will be balanced back out by Monday.
It was a slow add week coming off of a three-day holiday weekend, but RCA impacted Miguel's "Sky Walker" f/Travis Scott with 20 stations for the Most Added position, while Interscope is a close second with 16 adds on Maroon 5's "What Lovers Do" f/ SZA. RCA also has a solid clean-up week with Chris Brown's "Questions," as does Columbia with Tyler The Creator's "See You Again."
Epic continues its stronghold on the top two spots at Rhythm, with DJ Khaled f/ Rihanna & Bryson Tiller's "Wild Thoughts" (We The Best) and French Montana's "Unforgettable" f/Swae Lee (Eardruma/Bad Boy/Interscope) continuing to edge out any interlopers. Dej Loaf's "No Fear" (Columbia) moves inside the Top 5, and SZA's "Love Galore" f/ Travis Scott (RCA) will see a 500+ spin increase. Yo Gotti & Nicki Minaj's "Rake It Up" (CMG/Epic) climbs into the Top 15 and finally, look for 21 Savage's "Bank Account" (Slaughter Gang/Epic) to debut this week.  
RCA has a solid impact week with Chris Brown's "Questions," which gets 28 adds to narrowly edge out Justin Bieber & BloodPop's "Friends" (GPOP/RBMG/SB/Def Jam/Republic) which closed 26 adds. Wiz Khalifa's "Something New" f/Ty Dolla $ign (Atlantic/RRP) closed 25 adds for third place. 21 Savage's "Bank Account" (SlaughterGang/Epic) and PRETTYMUCH's "Would You Mind" (Syco/Epic) also grab several new stations.

I can’t believe the summer is almost over. The kids are a week or so away from going back to school, vacations are over and the sun is setting earlier. This time of the year always makes me sad, until I start thinking about college and pro football starting, baseball playoffs and the NBA—only a few months away. It’s an amazing time for sports fans. Summer is overrated anyways!... What isn’t overrated is the run Epic's Sujit Kundu is having. Team Kundu continues to hold down the Top 2 spots, as DJ Khaled f/Rihanna & Bryson Tiller’s "Wild Thoughts" (We The Best) holds at #1, while French Montana f/Swae Lee’s "Unforgettable" (Bad Boy) maintains the #2 position.

Future’s "Incredible" (A1/Freebandz) slides inside the Top 50, and 21 Savage’s "Bank Account" (Slaughter Gang), which is doing really well at Urban, tacks on another 150 spins. They’re now impacting French Montana f/The Weeknd & Max B’s new one, "A Lie" (Bad Boy)... Republic's Gary Spangler and Davey Dee see Liam Payne f/Quavo’s "Strip That Down" add 215 spins to the total and land at #13. Jacquees’ "B.E.D." (Cash Money) just misses debuting at #42, and Metro Boomin’ f/Offset & Drake’s "No Complaints" (Boominati) is right behind at #43. It was up 100 spins. Jessie Reyez’s "Figures" (FMLY) gains another 115 spins, and is now a few weeks away from debuting. Marc E. Bassy f/Kyle’s "Plot Twist" is still developing, and is at #57. They’re impacting Amine’s "Spice Girl" this week... Over at Columbia, Ayelet Schiffman and James White take Dej Loaf’s "No Fear"—up 250 spins—inside the Top 10, while it moves to power at a number of stations. Calvin Harris f/Pharell, Katy Perry & Big Sean’s "Feels" sees a 320-spin jump, and lands Harris at #16. Lecrae f/Tori Kelly’s "I'll Find You" (Reach) is looking like the record we thought it was, as it moves to #22, up 245 spins. Calvin Harris f/Future & Khalid’s "Rollin" is at #32, up 80 spins. Keep an eye on The Chainsmokers’ "Honest" (Disruptor), which is doing well at Top 40, and is finding its way on a number of Rhythm stations. Have you spent any time with PRETTYMUCH and their debut single “Would You Mind”? It’s starting to buzz at Top 40 and will impact at Rhythm soon... Def Jam’s Rick Sackheim and Noah Sheer see Logic f/Alessia Cara & Khalid’s “1-800-273-8255” climb to #3, as the record continues to develop. Jay-Z’s “4:44” (Roc Nation) holds at #19 this week, up 100 spins. Right behind is 2 Chainz f/Ty Dolla $ign’s “It’s A Vibe” (Tha Alumni/88 Classic), which moves to #20, up 200 spins. That one’s rolling at Urban as well... Team Inca and Lori G at RCA have something special with SZA f/Travis Scott’s “Love Galore” (TDE). It leaps #15-11 and is up 375 spins. Khalid’s “Young Dumb & Broke” (Right Hand) gains another 200 spins, and is now #32. Goldlink’s “Crew” (Squaaash Club) is also gaining momentum, thanks to another 115-spin increase. It’s at #34. Bryson Tiller’s “Run Me Dry” (Trapsoul) is developing, and at #56 this week. It was up triple-digits… Capitol’s Greg Marella and Dixie Tipton have new music coming from Vic Mensa, as well as Stefflon Don & French Montana’s “Hurtin’ Me” (Quality Control).
