Up one place, Chris Brown’s “Back To Sleep” earns #3 on the strength of ~4,485 weekly spins (+225). Also up one place each, Jeremih’s “oui” (~4,433, +216) and Belly’s “Might Not (featuring The Weeknd)” (~4,274, +337) respectively take #4 and #5.

On the urban front, “Work” leads with a weekly spin count of ~5,415 (+16). Jeremih’s “oui” holds at #2 with ~4,138 (+127), while Luke Nasty’s “Might Be” rises one place to #3 courtesy ~3,877 weekly plays (+118).
