Hot Hitmakers: Week of April 15

Apr 05, 2017

Drake maintained his No. 1 spot, despite a few of his singles dropping off the Hot 100. With 19 songs still charting, it's going to take some time before anyone whittles into that lead. 

Meanwhile Kendrick Lamar debuted at No. 3 thanks to a new track of his own and a collaboration with Maroon 5. That, combined with Leland "MetroBoomin" Wayne's continuing lasting power, drove the former powerhouse of Ed Sheeran out of the top 10 to No. 16.
