Could be. Dunno.

Let’s debate, shall we? Um, maybe not! There’s too much great music dropping just in time for Q4 for us to get distracted by anything else. It’s all hitting the ground and running up the charts in record time, so let’s get to it.

There’s a new #1, and again it has Republic’s CW, Spangler & Russell doing the happy dance. The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face” (XO) takes over the top of the Pop chart, just as follow-up “The Hills” gets ready to enter the chart. Based on some pretty great callout, Fall Out Boy’s “Uma Thurman” (DCD2/Island) looks set to join the Top 10 and Shawn Mendes’ “Stitches” (Island) moves up to the Top 30. Felix Jaehn’s “Ain’t Nobody” was one of the Most Added tracks last week, pulling in Venus, AMP N.Y., WWPW and HKTS. Natalie La Rose f/Fetty Wap’s “Around the World” has an amazing new video, which has snagged more than 2m views to date. Meanwhile, the track is sitting right outside of the Top 30 at radio. Coming off an appearance at the iHeart meetings last week, Hailee Steinfeld’s “Love Myself” already has an impressive list of majors on board, including Z100, KIIS, WIHT and KDWB.

The staffs of Republic and Hollywood are both celebrating Demi Lovato’s Top 10 move with “Cool for the Summer” (Island/Safehouse/Hollywood). With the #1 RTM callout and the #1 SNOL for a fifth week, the track should be a lock for the top of the chart. Hollywood’s Bea Miller is chart-bound with “Fire N Gold,” as WZPL and WNOK both came on board this week.

Warner Bros.Gray, Dyer, Reich and Shih are firing on all cylinders with six tracks. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis f/Ed Sheeran’s “Growing Up” is launching this week with some serious early airplay from KBKS, WBBM, KAMP, KKRZ and WRVW. WFKSKevin Campbell (pictured right) says, "We've waited a long time for new music from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis! They've surpassed every expectation with ‘Growing Up.’ So happy they’re back!!" Echosmith’s “Let’s Love” is also impacting this week, with SiriusXM’s Hits 1, KDIS, WRVW and WXSS already on the board. Jason Derulo’s “Cheyenne” (Beluga Heights) just made the jump to Top 20, and Adam Lambert’s “Ghost Town” joins the Top 25. Nico & Vinz’s “That’s How You Know” was again in the Most Added column last week, pulling in WKST, WFBC and WRVQ. By the way, the new Kaya Stewart single, “Let’s Split,” lands on desks on 8/12.

Epic’s Team Glassman looks ready to chart A Great Big World’s “Hold Each Other” (Black Magnetic) after two weeks in the Most Added Column. With new adds from WBBM, KZON, WNKS and WNOW, the track is on fire. Fifth Harmony f/Kid Ink’s “Worth It” (SYCO) continues to gain spins inside the Top 5; it’s sold over 2m copies so far. Jidenna’s “Classic Man” (Wondaland) is headed Top 25 and is now on over 100 stations. Meghan Trainor f/John Legend’s “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” is bubbling just under and looking to chart.

Global Entertainment’s Team Palmese charted Nathan Sykes’ “Kiss Me Quick.” They continue to put big stations on the board; WRNW, WIHT and WZFT are all new supporters. Nathan was also one of the standout performers at the iHeart Music Summit in L.A. last week.

RCA’s Riccitelli, JR, Daddio, Cooper & Strazza catapulted R.City f/Adam Levine’s “Locked Away” way up the chart, pushing it to #17. After a couple of big add weeks, it was this week’s Greatest Gainer. Kygo’s “Firestone” is off to the races, pulling in Z100, WKSC, WPOI and KAMP; look for this one to move quickly. Elle King’s “Ex’s and Oh’s” launches this week and KHKS, B97, WZPL and WXSS are already on board.

Artbeatz/Red’s Buch, Halpern & Weil have a huge story building on Daya’s “Hide Away,” which continues to post big increases on Shazam and Spotify. It also enjoys a big jump on the iTunes chart this week. New supporters include KMXV, KTFM and KZCH, as Hits 1 moves to sub power rotation.

Def Jam’s Sackheim, Rothschild & Farag moved Afrojack’s “SummerThing!” Top 30 this week. With new rotations coming in from KAMP, WNKS and KDIS, this one should be off to the races. Alessia Cara is also on the move with “Here,” which pulled in new airplay from WAPE, WKKF and WKQI.

Columbia’s Leipsner, Borris & Vaughn have a full plate of projects. This week, they’re launching Hozier’s latest track, “Someone New”; WNCI, WHBQ and WKRZ are already on the board. One Direction’s “Drag Me Down” (SYCO) is #26 after just two weeks and should be in the Most Added Column once again this week. Little Mix’s “Black Magic” (SYCO) is currently at #32. The track pulled in WZFT and B97 last week, and KRBE, WIOQ and Q100 are already on the board this week. Calvin Harris & Disciples’ “How Deep Is Your Love” pulled in 13 new adds last week, including WKTU, WBLI and KIIS. After 10 weeks on the chart, Rachel Platten’s anthemic “Fight Song” continues to be one of the Greatest Gainers; it’s now #8 and climbing.

Capitol’s Reese, Rainey, Youngblood & Siciliano just launched Disclosure f/Sam Smith’s “Omen,” and it’s already sitting at #41 with big support from KQMV, KYLD, KMVQ and WDZH; look for it in this week’s Most Added column. 5 Seconds of Summer’s “She’s Kinda Hot” is certainly hot, considering it’s already inside the Top 20 and climbing. Tori Kelly’s “Should’ve Been Us,” meanwhile, is set to move Top 15 with XHTZ, WFBC and KKXX new to the board.

MUSIC WE LOVE: Kygo’s “Firestone“ (RCA), Hailee Steinfeld’s “Love Myself” (Republic).
