HITS Daily Double

After a week of big releases, we’re heading straight into another one! We might have gone through a slow-release schedule during the first part of 2021, but we’re ending the year with a bang.

And speaking of big bangs, Interscope’s Romano & Lopes pulled off a feat this week that we can’t recall ever happening with a new artist. Olivia Rodrigo’s “good 4 u” and “deja vu” hold down the top two positions on the chart just as her third single, “traitor,” debuts and looks Top 30 bound. Now that’s the way to break a new artist during a pandemic! Maroon 5’s “Lost” (222) is now on 100+ stations. It’s currently Top 30 and climbing at Pop and is heading Top 15 at Hot AC.

Republic’s Spangler & Romeo stormed the top of the addboard this week with The Weeknd’s newly released single, “Take My Breath” (XO), scoring 165 adds out of the box. It’s already debuted on the chart and is Top 15 bound. Marshmello’s “Leave Before You Love Me” f/Jonas Brothers is Top 10 MB and Top 10 U.S. Shazam.

Fast Friends’ Team Glassman are launching vaultboy’s “everything sucks” this week and it garnered early support from SiriusXM as a HITS 1 To Watch. “The out-of-the-gate audience reaction grabbed our attention right away, ‘everything sucks’ is a fun, real lyric connection song that’s already creating in buzz with our listeners,” said HITS1’s Alex Tear.

Epic’s Sackheim, Afloarei & Dimig impacted Black Eyed Peas’ “HIT IT” f/Saweetie & Lele Pons this week and it arrived in the Top 5 Most Added column with 41 adds out of the box.
