Monday has featured several lead changes on the US iTunes sales chart.

The day opened with Drake’s “God’s Plan” in the pinnacle position. By Monday afternoon, Keala Settle’s Oscar-nominated “This Is Me” had seized the throne.

“God’s Plan” returned to #1 Monday night, but it did not stay there long.

By press time at 11:45PM ET Monday, Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey’s “The Middle” had taken over the #1 position.

“The Middle” has been resonating since its release in late January, and growing radio support plus a national Target campaign are bolstering that momentum.

“God’s Plan” is now #2 on the chart, while “This Is Me” is #3.

A pair of new releases — DJ Khaled’s “Top Off (featuring Jay Z, Future & B)” (#4) and Meghan Trainor’s “No Excuses” (#5) — complete the Top 5.
