10. (08) Selena Gomez – “Good For You” ft. A$AP Rocky

As The Weeknd still has radio and streaming control, Drake inches up further in the top 3. “Hotline Bling” is currently the top selling song in the US iTunes store, but that may still not be enough to overtake “The Hills.”

Billboard 200
01. (–) Fetty Wap – Fetty Wap
02. (01) Drake & Future – What a Time to Be Alive
03. (–) Don Henley – Cass County

07. (08) Taylor Swift – 1989 
08. (–) CHVRCHES – Every Open Eye
09. (–) Disclosure – Caracal
10. (–) The Dead Weather – Dodge And Burn

Due to high SPS numbers Fetty Wap debuts at #1, even though the album is actually #3 when ranked by its actual sales (75,000). Both Don Hanley and George Strait sold more copies than the Rap debut, but debuted at #3 and #4 respectively on the Billboard 200.

Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay
01. (01) The Weeknd – “The Hills” (*3 weeks*)
02. (05) Drake – “Hotline Bling”

08. (11) Future – “Where Ya At” ft. Drake
09. (10) Chris Brown – “Liquor”
10. (09) The Weeknd – “Earned It (Fifty Shades of Grey)”

It’s clear “Hotline Bling” is the next #1 on the chart, but how long is it gonna take? “The Hills” is still holding strong at #1 on the Mainstream Urban Airplay chart.

Meanwhile there’s a new Drake entry in the top 10, his collaboration with Future “Where Ya At” at #8 this week.
