A decline in weekly spins does not prevent Drakes’ “Controlla” from earning a second week atop the Mediabase rhythmic airplay chart.

“Controlla” received ~6,322 spins during the July 31-August 6 tracking week. The count trails last week’s mark by 248 but keeps Drake’s “Views” single ahead of the pack.

Spun ~6,163 times this week (-168), Rihanna’s “Needed Me” holds at #2. DJ Khaled’s “For Free (featuring Drake)” stays #3 on the strength of its ~5,912 weekly spins (+505), while a spin count of ~5,197 (+250) keeps Calvin Harris’ “This Is What You Came For (featuring Rihanna)” at #4.

Played ~4,324 times this week (-373), Drake’s former #1 “One Dance (featuring WizKid & Kyla)” rises one place to #5.
