Making its first appearance in the Top 5, Flo Rida’s “My House” jumps three places to #3. Its spin count of ~15,019 bests last week’s mark by a whopping 2,015, which represents the pop format’s greatest weekly airplay gain.

Down one place, The Chainsmokers’ “Roses (featuring ROZES)” is #4 with ~14,280 plays (+31), while Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” holds at #5 on the strength of ~12,441 weekly spins (-896).
