Pandora’s Top Spins: Say ‘Hello’ To Aminé, And ‘Welcome Back’ To Sia
On this week’s Pandora Top Spins chart, we bring aboard one Top Spins newbie, give Sia a warm “Welcome Back” and accept the fact that Katy Perry’s Rise has fallen. (Sorry Katy, but hey, Dark Horse is still performing pretty well.)
Oh, and 🍌🍌🍌🍌, too, of course. More on that below.
The Chainsmokers — you know, those two EDM guys who can’t seem to stop making hits — still rule with their Halsey-featuring Closer, which spends its fourth week at #1 after seeing 8,257,940 Spins last week. The track has a pretty healthy lead over Twenty One Pilots’ Heathens (6,504,680 Spins) and Kiiara’s Gold (6,030,420). And DJ Snake’s Let Me Love You featuring Justin Bieber isn’t giving up either: The song takes the #4 spot after seeing 5,839,520 Spins last week.
While the Chainsmokers may be on top, it’s tour mates Drake and Future who appear the most, with five tracks on the chart this week each. All of Drake’s appearances are features, including PartyNextDoor’s Come And See Me, which climbs two spots to #14 with 3,721,400 Spins last week. Future, meanwhile, sees two of his own tracks on the chart this week with Perkys Calling (#87) and Drippn (How U Luv That) (#91).
Prepare for the 🍌🍌🍌 to be your new 🍋🍋🍋. Aminé, the Portland rapper who seems to have a soft spot for bananas, the color yellow, and Quentin Tarantino, makes his debut on the Pandora Top Spins Chart this week with his bouncy summer hit Caroline. He first caught our eye about a month ago when he appeared on the Trendsetters Chart , and now Caroline sneaks in at #99. The song saw 806,570 Spins last week after a week-on-week 29.7% increase. Aminé also jumps six spots on the Trendsetters chart this week to #7 after seeing 4,913 Spins this week.
And after Cheap Thrills had a steady run on the chart for months, Sia is back on this week with the Kendrick Lamar-featuring The Greatest. The song makes an impressive debut #17 after seeing a week-on-week 104.3% increase in Spins. Oh, and that super intense video featuring Maddie Ziegler? It’s low-key killing it, with more than 113 million YouTube views to date.
Elsewhere, Pitbull’s Greenlight speeds ahead at #36 and Still Falling for You — Ellie Goulding’s contribution to the Bridget Jones’ Baby soundtrack — debuts at #41. And Ariana Grande’s Side to Side ambles its way onto the chart at #56 as Into You starts to cool down. The third single off “Dangerous Woman” saw a 357.8% increase in Spins this week compared to last week.
If you haven’t heard of Lil Uzi Vert yet, uhhh, where have you been? Beyoncé, apparently, is a big fan of the Philadelphia rapper, and Pandora listeners seem to be as well: You Was Right climbs 21 spots this week after racking up a cool 2,205,240 Spins last week. The song’s had a pretty good month overall, seeing a month-on-month 34.15% increase in Spins.
Kiss the Sky, the latest single from master-of-earworms Jason Derulo, makes a jump in its second week from #68 to #53. It’s bound to climb too, for a few reasons. In the past week, it’s seen an 218.22% increase in Pandora Spins compared to last week, and also saw a 550.96% week-on-week uptick in Track Station Adds. Lastly, it’s Jason Derulo, the guy who gave us Ridin’ Solo…. so….
Lastly, Nashville-based country band Old Dominion climb 13 spots this week with Song For Another Time as the track approaches 2 million Spins, while YFN Lucci’s Key to the Streets (Feat Migos & Trouble) climbs 15 spots (1,666,440 Spins).
And two of pop’s biggest divas, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, are having a hard time making it to the top of the chart. Rise dropped off the chart last week after peaking at #23, and Gaga’s latest single Perfect Illusion isn’t quite living up to her previous releases, spending its fourth week at #34. Maybe it’s all an illusion?
