HITS Daily Double
Congratulations to Franco Iemmello at Capitol for taking Katy Perry f/Juicy J’s “Dark Horse” to #1 this week. He also wants you to get ready for JLo’s brand new track, “I Luh Ya Papi.” There’s a version with French Montana as well as one with Big Sean. The video premieres on 3/13 and she’ll perform it live on American Idol with French Montana on 3/20… Beyoncé f/Jay Z’s “Drunk in Love” remains at the top of the chart this week, but Columbia looks to flip-flop this coming week, as labelmate Pharrell Williams is trying to secure that coveted top spot. “Happy” was once again the biggest increased record, and moves #5-3, up nearly 700 spins. Ayelet Schiffman and James White can do no wrong, as they also have John Legend’s “All of Me” going #13-11 and increasing 350 spins, as well as DJ Snake & Lil Jon’s “Turn Down for What” at #19 and up 236 spins. And be on the lookout for the remix, which will feature Juicy J, Ludacris and 2 Chainz! It should get to radio by early next week. The second biggest increase of the week also went to Columbia for Beyoncé’s “Partition,” moving #26-20 and up 635 spins. Finally, they’re impacting DJ Cassidy f/Robin Thicke & Jessie J’s “Calling All Hearts” this coming week… Republic is also maintaining their success as Lorde’s “Team” holds at #8, up 100 spins, while SoMo’s “Ride” and Sage the Gemini’s “Red Nose” hold at #13 and #14 respectfully. Martin Garrix’s “Animals” takes a big leap from #28-24, up 125 spins, but the debut of the week goes to The Chainsmokers’ “#Selfie.” They come in at #32, up over 300 spins. Young Money f/Drake’s “Trophies” is sure to chart this coming week, as the record gained 260 spins this week. They also impact Adrian Marcel “2 AM” this week… Rick Sackheim, Noah Sheer and Scott Maness are doing big things at IDJ, as Jay Z f/Beyoncé’s “Part II (On the Run)” gathers another 285 spins this week, good enough for #16. They also have Jhene Aiko’s “The Worst,” which has been a steady gainer each and every week and is now at #21. Mariah Carey’s “You’re Mine (Eternal)” debuts this week at #38, and they’re impacting Iggy Azalea f/Charli XCX’s “Fancy.” The video is already approaching 5 million views, and she’ll be on tour starting 4/23. Sitting just outside the chart is Ludacris f/Wiz Khalifa, Jeremih & Cashmere Cat’s “Party Girls.” They’re looking to debut this in the next two weeks… Don’t look now, but Lee L’Heureux at Warner Bros. is making a push for #1 with Jason Derulo f/2 Chainz’ “Talk Dirty.” If not for the power of Pharrell, this would be the next #1. As it stands, it will be #2 this coming week… RCA continues to build Chris Brown f/Lil Wayne’s “Loyal.” It moves up to #7 this week, gaining over 360 spins. John Strazza, Inca and Lori G also have Shakira f/Rihanna’s “Can’t Remember to Forget You” at #35. They’re looking to chart Pitbull f/GRL’s “Wild Wild Love” in the next few weeks, as well as Justin Timberlake’s “Not a Bad Thing.” This week they impact Kid Ink f/Chris Brown’s “Main Chick.” These two are coming off “Show Me,” which was a #1 record… Sujit Kundo at Epic is powering Kat Dahlia’s “Crazy” onto the chart. It’s #38 on the building chart as I write this. He’s also impacting Future f/Pharrell Williams’ “Move That Doh.” This has a nice buzz developing, with the urban leaners leading the way.
