Play It On The Radio #39

The 4th quarter isn’t far from over but the radio is buzzin’ with plenty of new releases on the Rhythmic and Urban side so it makes sense for me to write a new edition of Play It On The Radio. 50 Cent’s ‘My Life‘ is off to a really good start with the single taking the spot for the “most added song” this week. It also debuts at #4 on Billboard Hot Digital Songs with sales of 140k. Without any further delay, please proceed below to know what’s cookin’ on the airwaves.


Previous: #38


– Rihanna is number 1 on the charts with ‘Diamonds’ while G.O.O.D. Music’s ‘Clique’ is gaining major spins to land on 2. Don’t forget, the song is now platinum.
– Flo Rida’s ‘I Cry’ enters the top 5 this week at 5 and following him is Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Swimming Pools (Drank)’ at 6. The song had a slow start but has definitely grown heavily in audience.
– Bruno Mars’ ‘Locked Out Of Heaven’ is another top gainer, now sitting at #11 this week.
– Lil Wayne’s ‘No Worries’ didn’t turn out to be the smash that some people projected. It crawls to #20 this week.
– Rita Ora’s ‘R.I.P’ takes the biggest fall from 21 to 31 while 50 Cent is the new entry at 50 with just 3 days of airplay.

Top adds:

50 Cent – ‘My Life’ (26)
2 Chainz – ‘I’m Different’ (13)
Joe Budden – ‘She Don’t Put It Down Like You’ (13)
Future – ‘Neva End’ (10)
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – ‘Thrift Shop’ (9)


– King Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Swimming Pools (Drank)’ is number 1 on this format which is a huge achievement for someone who doesn’t make radio-specific songs.
– Juicy J’s ‘Bandz’ however moves up to the 2nd spot and will give tough competition to K. Dot in the coming weeks.
– Lil Wayne’s ‘No Worries’ is doing better on Urban as it enters top 5 at #4 this week.
– Rick Ross’ Diced Pineapples’ featuring Drake is another steady mover this week, jumping to #7.
– T.I.’s ‘Ball’ does move to #13 but with only a gain of 113 spins which means it might slow down in the next week or so until something magical happens. The Kang has struggled to find a hit this era.
– 2 Chainz’ ‘I’m Different’ is the biggest gainer in terms of spins as it jumps to the 15tth spot while Alicia Keys’ ‘Girl On Fire’ takes the biggest drop from 22 to 16.

Top adds:

Slice9 – ‘Another One’ (Feat. Future) (29)
Trinidad James – ‘All Gold Everything’ (7)
A$AP Rocky – ‘F**kin Problems’ (6)
