The label's John McMann also talks new music from Cardi B, Ally Brooke & more.
Welcome to the Billboard Chart Beat Podcast, where each week co-hosts Gary Trust and Trevor Anderson, from the Billboard charts department, discuss why what's on the charts … is on the charts, while also looking at current chart action in a historical context for even greater insights.
In the second of two new podcasts this week, John McMann, senior vp/pop and rhythmic promotion for Atlantic Records, returns to discuss the label's latest chart achievements, including Ed Sheeran's two new hits, "I Don't Care," with Justin Bieber, and "Cross Me," featuring Chance the Rapper and PnB Rock, from his album No.6 Collaborations Project, due July 12.
"Care" holds at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, while Ava Max hits the top 10 with her debut hit, "Sweet but Psycho," and Lizzo lands her first top 40 entry with "Truth Hurts." McMann offers insights about both rising acts, as well as the latest releases from fellow Atlantic artists Cardi B, Meek Mill, A Boogie Wit da Hoodie, Ally Brooke, Bazzi and more.
