Cancer sucks! Once again, we’ve lost one of our own to this awful disease. Ric Lippincott was truly “one of the good guys.” I met him when he was at Maverick and he would come into the HITS offices, and I didn’t know him well, but I remember him as a very charming, happy man, who always had a smile on his face. As I read the posts on social media on Monday (2/22), I noticed that the comments’ one consistent theme surrounded what a “great human” he was. I guess that’s how we’d all like to be remembered. RIP Ric.

Meanwhile, Def Jam’s Sackheim, Rothschild & Farag have held down the #1 spot with Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” (RBMG) for four weeks in a row. Rihanna f/Drake’s “Work” (Westbury Road/Roc Nation) is now Top 15 and was one of the week’s Greatest Gainers. Alessia Cara’s “Wild Things” is now on 120 stations, and after one week of airplay following its chart debut, the track moves up to #28.

Taylor Swift’s “New Romantics” (Big Machine) is impacting now; look for big adds on this one. Mike Posner’s “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” (Island) is Top 20 now and was the #5 Greatest Gainer this week after three weeks in the Most Added column. DNCE’s “Cake by the Ocean” continues to climb up inside the Top 10 as the sales and Shazam numbers keep climbing as well. Zendaya f/Chris Brown’s “Something New” debuted at #35 this week after being #1 Most Added on impact.

Columbia’s Leipsner, Borris & Vaughan have moved The Chainsmokers f/Rozes’ “Roses” Top 3. The track is certified platinum and Top 10 at Shazam in the U.S. and globally. Rachel Platten’s “Stand by You” is ready to jump Top 20; new adds this week include KCDU & KZBD with lots of rotation increases coming from the current RTM callout.
