Soul Sweep: March 21, 2015...


We're at the "hump" of today's "chart sweeps", sampling the songs making the charts in Billboard magazine, and this time out I'm serving up the latest hits on R&B radio...

On their main R&B/Hip Hop Airplay chart, Nicki Minaj jumps to #1 with "Truffle Butter" featuring Drake...

Kanye West and Paul McCartney collaborate on the highest new entry at #29, "All Day", which also features rappers Theophilus London and Allan Kingdom. The pair's track with Rihanna, "FourFiveSeconds", is down at #36...

As rapper Wale drops out of the top ten with "The Body", he arrives at #33 with "The Matrimony" featuring Usher, my "Soul Pick of the Week"...


Mary J. Blige enters at #49 with "Doubt", from her excellent London Sessions album. The track is at #15 on the Adult R&B panel as well...


The Rich Gang drives in at #50 with "Tell Em Lies" featuring Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug. It's the follow-up to their #1 airplay hit "Lifestyle"...


Meanwhile, on the older-skewing Adult R&B radio panel, Kem hangs in on top with "Nobody" for a fifth week...

Tamia reappears at #27 with "Sandwich and a Soda". In 2012, she went to #4 with "Beautiful Surprise"...


Lyfe Jennings enters at #29 with "Pretty Is"...


Lastly, on the Rhythmic format, whose stations include more dance/pop music in their playlists, Pitbull and Ne-Yo climb to #1 with "Time Of Our Lives" (the pair also topped the list with "Give Me Everything"), while the aforementioned Kanye track is the top newbie at #33...

Rapper Fetty Wap lands at #34 with "Trap Queen"...


Canadian hip hop artist OB O'Brien pulls in at #37 with "Schemin' Up" featuring Drake and P. Reign...


X Factor-promoted female vocal group Fifth Harmony enters at #38 with "Worth It" featuring Kid Ink.
