The invasion of the American rappers continues this week on “The Official Lebanese Top 20” with no less than three of them inside the Top 4! With Seattle-based rapper Macklemore at Number 2, Bruno Mars at Number 3, and Will I Am at Number 4, that’s the 1st time such a thing happens! Heavily played on the Lebanese Radio Stations, Rap & R&B are very much ‘on the roll’ lately… Lebanese acts are almost nonexistent with the highest title being “Mary Rose” from our Mohammad Iskandar which only stands at Number 5. Mohammad Iskandar will be next week’s guest on the OLT20 Radio Edition next week.
Congrats to Pink and Fun’s singer Nate Ruess for clinching their first Number 1 with “Just give me a reason” thanks to an average play of 47 plays per week, per radio station as compiled by International Research company IPSOS. On OLT20 this week we have 6 Lebanese artists (from which 3 are inside the Top 10), and 14 Occidental ones!
Among the week’s other New Entries, we have “Drinking From The Bottle” at Number 11 from Calvin Harris & Tinie Tempah, “It’s Time” at Number 16 from American Rock Band Imagine Dragons, and “Animal” at Number 19 from Conor Maynard featuring Wiley. Also note that “Stay” from Rihanna & Mikki Ekko is the “Jump Of The Week” rising up 4 notches to Number 8.
