HITS Daily Double

Spring forward! March Madness! And MLB is starting! I truly love this time of year. Now, let’s get to the music.

Republic CorpsSpangler, Lucas & Schiffman have pulled in 152 stations on Ariana Grande’s “we can’t be friends (wait for your love)” (Republic) in the first two weeks since impact; it is currently Top 15-bound. Nicki Minaj’s “Everybody” f/Lil Uzi Vert (Republic) is set to join the Top 15 and remains Top 50 U.S. Shazam. Sabrina Carpenter’s “Feather” (Island) is poised to make the #1 move. Noah Kahan’s “Stick Season” (Mercury) is moving up inside the Top 15 and knocking it out of the park on his sold-out U.S. arena tour. The Weeknd’s “One of the Girls” f/JENNIE (XO) is Top 20 MB, Top 35 Spotify and Top 25 Shazam.

Epic’s Sackheim & Dimig have a plate full of tracks moving on the Top 40 chart, starting with Meghan Trainor & T-Pain’s “Been Like This.” The single was #1 Most Added on impact with 66 adds, including Music Choice, HITS1, B96 and WBLI, and debuts on the chart in its first week. Tyla’s “Water” (FAX) is sitting just outside the Top 5 and looking to move up. Madison Beer’s “Make You Mine” (Sing It Loud) was back in the Top 10 Most Added for a third consecutive week; it is now on 72 stations and has debuted on the chart. Eliza Rose x Calvin Harris’ “Body Moving” is Top 30 bound with 76 stations on board.

Warner’s Chester & Reich put Dua Lipa’s “Training Season” back in the Most Added column with another 28 adds, including WWWQ, KLUC and WXSS; it is currently Top 20. Teddy Swims’ “Lose Control” is now Top 5 and climbing. Mark Adams, newly named PD of Z100 and VP, CHR Programming iHeartMedia says, “iHeart Top 40 got behind Teddy in a meaningful way, early. His artistry and amazing voice made an incredible impression on our programmers, he was a breakout star on the 2023 Jingle Ball Tour and was also named an iHeartRadio On the Verge artist. Today, our stations continue to lead the way on “Lose control” in terms of both spins and share, and it’s well on its way to becoming one of the biggest songs of the year to date.” Meanwhile, Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things” is set to join the Top 10 with an almost-closed-out panel.

ICLG’s Team Marella has Reneé Rapp’s “Not My Fault” (Interscope) Top 15 with 160+ stations spinning, and it was one of the Greatest Gainers last week; it has 85m streams to date. Selena Gomez’s “Love On” (Interscope) was a Top 10 Greatest Gainer and is set to join the Top 15. And at press time, Olivia Rodrigo’s “obsessed” from her new deluxe album is off to the races (Geffen).

In2une’s Connone & Lucek put another 24 adds on Djo’s “End of Beginning” (AWAL), including HITS1, KMVQ, KXKS and KDWB. The track has been Top 10 Most Added for three weeks and debuted on the chart this week. The Beaches’ “Blame Brett” is on 51 stations, like HITS1, KHKS, WBLI and XHTZ, and has already charted.

Columbia’s Gray, Burruss, Bedard & Stevens have Beyoncé’s “TEXAS HOLD ‘EM” (Parkwood) heading Top 10 at both Pop and Hot AC; it’s also Top 10 Spotify Global and pulled in 16m+ streams. Jessie Murph’s “Wild Ones” f/Jelly Roll was once again a Top 10 Most Added track. Pulling in airplay this week from KDHT, WEZB and KMXV, it’s currently Top 30.

RCA’s Rothschild, Maldonado, JR & Daddio move Tate McRae’s “exes” Top 10. The track is also Top 25 on Spotify’s Today’s Top Hits and Top 15 at Apple Music’s Todays Hits and A-List Pop. Justin Timberlake’s “Selfish” is notching up inside the Top 15 and eyeing the Top 10. Majors WKSC, WIHT, KRBE and KZHT are just a few of the stations increasing the rotations to Power and SubPower for this track. Victoria Monét’s “On My Mama” (Lovett Music) is on 140 stations and moved Top 20 this week. SZA’s “Saturn” (TDE) was Top 3 Most Added and scored another 29 stations, which puts the total number of stations spinning the track to 120+ as it moves Top 25.
