HITS Daily Double

Congrats are in order once again for Lori G and Inca at RCA for running Doja Cat’s “Vegas” (Kemosabe) to the top of the charts! This one took 14 weeks to climb to #1 and was up 540 spins this week. Up next for the label is Chris Brown’s “Under the Influence.” The track is already perched in the #5 slot and gains an impressive 580 spins. Meanwhile, SZA’s “Shirt” just misses a debut this week and comes in at #43. With an increase of 350 spins, this will surely enter the chart next week.

Epic’s Rick Sackheim and Dontay Thompson have Oxlade’s “KU LO SA” holding at #33 this week. It gains 85 spins and continues to develop. Debuting at #40 this week after a 210-spin boost will be DJ Khaled’s “BIG TIME” f/Future & Lil Baby (We the Best). Not far behind is DDG’s “9 Lives” f/Polo G & NLE Choppa, which moves to #47 and is just a few weeks away from a debut.

Over at Def Jam, Noah Sheer and the team are preparing for a #1 with YG’s “Toxic.” It ended the week at #2 and is at the top spot on the building chart. Up 460 spins, it looks to hold that lead. Right behind is Armani White’s “BILLIE EILISH.” This one is up 250 rotations and looks to remain in the #3 slot this week. Rihanna’s “Lift Me Up” (Roc Nation) from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever adds another 535 spins to its total and shows no signs of slowing down. The movie ruled the global box office last weekend and continues to propel the track, which is currently Top 40 at Spotify’s Global Top Songs.

Columbia’s John Strazza and James White are enjoying the ascent of Beyoncé’s “Cuff It” (Parkwood), which sees an increase of 610 spins as it moves to #9 this week. The next goal on this is the Top 5. Also making moves is Lil Nas X’s “STAR WALKIN’.” It slides up three spots to #13 this week after scoring an increase of 110 spins. Not far behind is Lil TJay’s “Beat the Odds,” which pulls in 210 spins and moves to #17.

Meanwhile at Interscope, Nino Cuccinello continues to build the story on GloRilla’s “Tomorrow 2” w/Cardi B. The track picks up an impressive 310 spins and climbs inside the Top 15. He’s also got EST Gee’s “Backstage Passes” f/Jack Harlow (CMG) landing at #28 this week, thanks to an increase of 130 spins.

Capitol’s Dixie Tipton sees Lil Baby’s “Heyy” score 250 more spins this week and move inside the Top 20. Up 240 spins, Sam Smith & Kim Petras’ “Unholy” climbs up three spots and comes in at #32. It also hit the top spot at Pop this week.

Over at Warner, B Dot Scales has Freddie Gibbs’ “Too Much” f/Moneybagg Yo sliding up to #29 after picking up 125 spins. NLE Choppa’s “Do It Again” f/2Rare gains 195 spins and moves up five positions to #34.

And at Republic, Davey Dee and Garrett Ream are waiting on what the official Drake & 21 Savage track will be, but in the meantime, the album’s “Circo Loco” (OVO) debuts at #30 after a whopping increase of 815 spins. “Rich Flex” is also gaining momentum and is up 340 spins. Radio is certainly hoping the next single is one of the two. Stay tuned!
