Drake’s “Summer Sixteen” Rises To #1 on US iTunes Sales Chart; ZAYN, Rihanna Follow

Another high-profile new release has resulted in another lead change on the US iTunes single sales chart.

Drake’s new “Summer Sixteen,” which emerged Saturday, is now the etailer’s fastest-selling song. “Summer Sixteen” seizes the throne from ZAYN’s “Pillowtalk,” which had led since its early Friday release.

To get to #1, “Pillowtalk” overtook Rihanna’s new “Work (featuring Drake),” which soared to #1 following its Wednesday release.

“Pillowtalk” and “Work” are presently #2 and #3 at the store, respectively. Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” is #4, while twenty one pilots’ “Stressed Out” is #5.
