The competition between Drake and Beyonce is well under way and the former has learned that his quest for the Billboard 200‘s crown has been supported by U.S. radio.
The rapper’s Funky House inspired cut ‘One Dance‘ now stands as the most-added song on U.S. Top 40 radio after it was picked up by 42 radio stations this week.
Perfect timing, as its parent album ‘Views From the 6’ will premiere on Apple Music this evening.
‘Dance’ is the first of the performer’s songs to top the British singles chart, supported by a number of profile-building moves he executed in the market last summer, and the hype which still surrounds his Rihanna-led effort ‘Work.’
Will the song’s spins be enough to protect ‘View’s chart run from Hurricane Lemonade.
Peep HITS Daily Double’s latest report and share your thoughts below.
Though it didn’t have the sneak-attack jolt of her last album, 2013’s Beyoncé, Lemonade is currently projected to sell somewhere around 500k albums, 900k tracks and generate up to 45m streams. While those album sales represent a 19% decline over her previous first week, Lemonade is likely to come out ahead when revenue is compared, thanks to the addition of TEA and SEA.
