Welcome back to Billboard's weekly video show "Real-Time Rewind," which recaps the week's hottest action on the Billboard Real-Time Twitter Charts --Trending 140 and Emerging Artists -- and the news that's driving the action. Joe Levy visits New York City's Academy Records on Episode 45, which features Drake, Madonna, Florence + the Machine, Amy Schumer & Carly Rae Jepsen.
So what happened on the Real-Time Charts this week?
The first weekend of Coachella impacted the Real-Time Charts in a significant way. During Drake's headlining performance on Sunday night, April 12, Madonna surprised concert-goers and live-stream viewers when joining him on stage. She made headlines when kissing Drake. The resulting buzz sent f You're Reading This It's Too Late track "Madonna" to the top spot on the Trending 140 for more than 90 minutes.
After Coachella, Drake announced his upcoming "Jungle" tour as well as the physical release date of If You're Reading This It's Too Late, which includes bonus track called "My Side." That track topped the Trending 140 as well.
Florence + the Machine, whose lead singer broke her foot at Coachella, released their video to "Ship To Wreck" on Monday, April 13. The video debut shot the song to the top of the Trending 140 on the same day.
Comedian and MTV Movie Awards host Amy Schumer released the booty anthem to end all booty anthems, "Milk Milk Lemonade" on Sunday, April 12, alongside its accompanying music video. The video, which features cameos from Amber Rose and Method Man, sent the track to the No. 2 position on the Trending 140.
Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner, Ariana Grande, Lance Bass and more rocked out in front of a web camera to Carly Rae Jepsen's "I Really Like You," paying homage to the singer's 2012 music video. This, of course, sent the song to the top of the Trending 140 for a third time.
