Play It On The Radio #36

We all know music is slow on the weekends so it’s the perfect recipe for me to sit back and write a new Play It On The Radio in peace. Kendrick Lamar had the most added song on Urban radio this week which was definitely a pleasant surprise. But here are the other highlights from the FM dial.


Previously: #35


– We finally have a new number one! Kirko Bangz moves up the charts to the top position with his banger ‘Drank In My Cup’.
– Drake still holds strong at #2 and #3 with ‘Take Care’ and ‘The Motto’, respectively.
– Young Jeezy continues his strong move as he enters the top 10 at #7 with ‘Leave You Alone’ feat. Ne-Yo. Warren G gets a big credit for producing this certified hit.

– Gotye’s ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ gains massive spins this week to land at #20.
– Fat Joe’s ‘Another Round’ peaked at 18 a few weeks back but it’s now rolling down, settling at 24 this week.
– Drake’s new single ‘HYFR‘ is picking up steam, jumping to #31.
– A surprise miss is T.I.’s ‘Love This Life’ which fails to enter the top 40 this week as well.
