Drake Wins Big In This Week's Radio Sweepstakes

The following are tracks delivered to radio by digital distributor DMDS/Yangaroo in Canada and broken down into two categories. Top Downloads represents the most downloaded songs in the week ending April 27th, and the Most Active Indies blends downloads and streams, with the affiliated label and radio promotions company in parenthesis.

Drake's lead single from his fifth studio album, Scorpion, is a lavish, big-budget affair with a positive storyline and it's top of the pops here, in the US, the UK and just about anywhere else that counts. George Canyon's "Better Off In Love" sets up his next album, Southside Of Heaven, set for release on May 25. On the quirky side, New York's Sofi Tucker - Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern - get lucky (again) with the third single from their debut Treehouse album, Tom Cochrane does the right thing with his Humboldt fund-raising edition of "Big League" and The Sheepdogs land a hit from their recently released Changing Colours album that includes a fun--loving barroom brawl video to match.
