The gains in performance are officially tallied to the end of the week, however, the Sean Paul and Sia collaboration has a lead of more than 10,000 spins ahead of the projected number two song.
Though yet to be officially released, the song is projected to hold the pole position for a third straight week on the chart.
After the single’s 15th week on the pop chart, Cheap Thrills ousted Drake’s One Dance from its 10-week reign at the number one position on music chart. The pop, radio-airplay chart shows Cheap Thrills reaching almost 20,000 spins during the first week of August – Jamaica’s ‘Emancipendence’ week.
The Grammy Award-winning Jamaican artiste opened Drake’s OVO Festival in Toronto on July 30. The reggae superstar shared the stage with Trinidad and Tobago’s Machel Montano, performing their One Whine collaboration.
Sean Paul’s other two songs, Trumpets and Tornado, already have more than 21 million and one million views on YouTube, respectively.
