Top Songs

It only took two weeks for Justin Bieber‘s new single What Do You Mean? to take the #1 spot

Taylor Swift might just make every track on 1989 a single as Wildest Dreams drops right into the Top 5 at #4

At #21 this week, Hit the Quan from iHeartMemphis isn’t just a dance move, it’s a routine and if you haven’t really soaked it in, check out this Minnesota Twins bat boy flow it down perfectly

Tori Kelly’s Should’ve Been Us was already building real activity but the aforementioned MTV VMA performance gave the single a big push to #23

Levels from Nick Jonas skips nearly half the line right to #52

The new video for Tyga’s Stimulated features his girlfriend Kylie Jenner so the buzz is there, giving the track a debut at #61…now to see if it has staying power

As the success of his new album continues, The Weeknd sees yet another single, Acquainted, garner notable activity and come in at #89

Emerging Artists

Toronto-based hard rock outfit Saint Asonia (#4) includes members of Three Days Grace, Staind, and Finger Eleven so they know what they are doing. They have quickly hit some summer festivals, released an eponymous album on RCA Records, have a Top 10 Active Rock radio hit in Better Place, and are preparing for a fall tour with Seether.

Dallas rapper Post Malone recently inked a deal with Republic Records based on the achievements of his single, White Iverson. Just as quickly as he has found success, he has found controversy, to which he is responding with a new freestyle, #mood, over 50 Cent’s Window Shopper. He has a few live dates on the calendar but that schedule will probably fill up once his new Promotion and Tour Marketing teams kick things into gear.
