Many of those same names are also in the running for the Top Hot 100 Artist race, including breakout EDM duo The Chainsmokers, Rihanna as well as Drake, Twenty One Pilots and The Weeknd.
 The Top R&B Song category is a tight one, with Rihanna doubling down thanks to “Needed Me” and her collabo with Drake on “Work.” Drizzy is also on the board with his Wizkid & Kyla smash “One Dance,” while Bruno Mars checks in with “24K Magic” and The Weeknd’s hook up with Daft Punk, “Starboy,” rounds out the category.
The Top Rock Song list is dominated by Columbus, Ohio, duo Twenty One Pilots, who have a trifecta of nods for “Heathens,” “Ride” and “Stressed Out,” which is joined by X Ambassadors‘ “Unsteady” and the superstar collabo “Sucker for Pain” featuring Lil WayneWiz Khalifa & Imagine Dragons, along with X Ambassadors, Logic and Ty Dolla $ign.
