Drake’s “Hotline Bling” is this week’s top Airplay and Sales gainer and the result is a jump into the top 5. The song now matched the #4 peak of “Hold On, We’re Going Home” in 2013. Drake has never gotten higher than #2 on the Hot 100 (his 2009 debut single “Best I Ever Had” is highest peaking one), could this be the right time to turn the tides?

Taylor Swift has earned a 5th top 10 from 1989 with “Wildest Dreams.”
