Atlantic Records Currently Controls Half of the Top 10 on Urban Radio

Singles from Kodak Black, Meek Mill, Cardi B, and Gucci Mane have been played more than 20,000 times this week at urban radio.

At present, Kodak Black’s “ZEZE,” featuring Travis Scott and Offset, comes in at No. 5, with Meek Mill’s “Dangerous” clocking at No. 6. Cardi B’s “Money” takes the eight spot and “Ring” takes the 10th, while Gucci Mane’s “Wake Up In The Sky” is the ninth most-played song on urban radio this week.

For those who are keeping score, of the 10 most played songs in the country, five belong to Atlantic. The only label giving them a run is Republic with two tracks—Lil Wayne's "Uproar" (No. 2) and Travis Scott's "SICKO MODE" (No. 4)—in the top 10. Expanding to the top 40, Republic clocks in at five tracks.

Other labels in the top 10 this week include: Capitol (1), Epic (2), and Interscope (1). Of note, Interscope has seven records in the top 40, one more than Atlantic. 

With its impressive roster, it's no wonder Atlantic controls this much of the top 10 radio plays. If you're an artist looking for more radio play, Atlantic may be the record label for you. Or Interscope. Or Republic. You catch the drift.
