RADIO REPORT: POP! Goes The Picks (August 2015) (Part One)

It’s time once again to analyze the airwaves and find out if your favorite new singles will be lighting up the national charts during the month. Which tracks will climb to the top and which ones will hit a stop? Here’s a small selection of new songs being serviced in August on the CHR and Hot AC formats in the first part of this month’s Radio Report:

CHR (*) and HOT AC (**)

Felix Jaehn and Jasmine Thompson
FELIX JAEHN featuring JASMINE THOMPSON – “Ain’t Nobody (Loves Me Better)” (August 4) (*)
Label: Casablanca/Republic
14-year-old Thompson has been covering songs for years, and one such remake of the 1983 Rufus and Chaka Khan hit is taking a second chart run on. In October 2013, her original version peaked at #32 in the U.K. thanks to a Sainsbury’s ad for pizza. Now, a tropical house remix by the German DJ/producer Jaehn hopes to chew on the charts globally. Yummy. Ready for a musical meal?

Conrad Swwell
CONRAD SEWELL – “Hold Me Up” (August 11) (*)
Label: 300 Entertainment
After blazing a “Firestone” of a song up the European charts with DJ/producer Kygo, the 27-year-old Australian singer is looking to set pop radio chart on fire in the U.S. without the help of that introduction. (RCA’s Stateside release is just below the top 50 on the format.) His solo single went to #1 in his native country in June, where it is certified Platinum. He can only go “Up” from here.

Disclosure and Sam Smith
DISCLOSURE featuring SAM SMITH – “Omen” (August 11) (*)
Label: Capitol
Some say that lightning doesn’t strike twice, but in the case of the English duo out of Reigate and their good pal from London, it is perhaps a good time to try and dispel that notion. The brother act was previously on Interscope in the U.S., though they opted for a label switch to Capitol for their new set; Smith is already on there, and his In The Lonely Hour era was massive. Watch out for it.

Echosmith
ECHOSMITH – “Let’s Love” (August 11) (* + **)
Label: Warner Bros.
The four Sierota siblings keep it all in the family, and their Warner family is issuing this third single from Talking Dreams to both radio formats this month as the followup to recent hit “Bright”. Several live videos for the song were released in late 2013, but it’s unclear when an official music video for it will be premiering given its new status. Will the dream continue for this young quartet?

Hailee Steinfeld
HAILEE STEINFELD – “Love Myself” (August 11) (*)
Label: Republic
Earlier this week, the Pitch Perfect 2 actress and singer appeared in a clip with Canadian singer and Vine star Shawn Mendes, as the two teens sang a new acoustic version of his latest single, “Stitches”. Now, her first solo single, which will be released to iTunes next Friday, looks like it could be a fall hit based on some early radio reaction. Yet, it’s still too soon to tell if the “Love” continues.

Robin Thicke and Nicki Minaj
ROBIN THICKE featuring NICKI MINAJ – “Back Together” (August 11) (*)
Label: Star Trek/Interscope
Thicke is currently climbing up the Urban AC survey with “Morning Sun”, which seems to be responding nicely given the response to his legal issues earlier this year over the case concerning his hit “Blurred Lines”. Now, he looks to capture the pop audience and he’ll be bringing in Minaj to help. You may remember that the two worked together before on his 2009 song “Shakin’ It 4 Daddy”.

Gavin James
GAVIN JAMES – “Bitter Pill” (August 25) (**)
Label: Capitol
With the huge support of Beats 1 beginning a month ago and his current U.S. tour with the aforementioned Smith (see “Omen”), a push at the Hot AC format seems like the next logical step for this Irish newcomer and his label. Of course, his lovely cover of “The Book Of Love” has been #1 on my personal chart for two weeks, but this “Pill” isn’t hard to swallow, and it should be ranking soon.

Ryn Weaver
RYN WEAVER – “Promises” (August 25) (*)
Label: Mad Love/Interscope
After a surge of blog coverage and notable hype in the summer of 2014, it was disappointing to see Weaver’s song “OctaHate” stall down in the 20’s on the pop radio chart earlier this year after an initial bump from a Cumulus block add. Nevertheless, her second radio single is being serviced later this month in both its original version and a new dance mix by French producer Norman Doray.

Chart Notes:

  • After debuting on the top 40 last week at #39, “Run Away With Me” from Canadian performer Carly Rae Jepsen picks up the pace in this musical marathon and bolts up to #29, a gain of ten notches. This marks the second time in July that a single has managed to make a double-digit leap, the other one being “Pressure Off” by Duran Duran, Janelle Monáe and Nile Rodgers, which also climbed ten notches (32-22) on the chart dated July 5. Look out for more as its chart “Run” continues.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is by A Great Big World, the New York duo of Ian Axel and Chad King (formerly Vaccarino.) I was a huge fan of their single “Already Home”, a seven-week #1 on my chart that ended up as the #2 song on the Top 100 of 2014. Now, “Hold Each Other” holds down the #35 spot, and it should rise quickly in the coming weeks. There’s no word yet on when their second album will be released.
  • Also new this week is the second radio single from Nate Ruess‘s recent solo set, Grand Romantic. “Nothing Without Love” recently climbed to a peak of #3, and now, “Great Big Storm” brings a gust of wind and blows onto the chart at #40. A video for the single recently premiered and it continues to garner adds at the Hot AC format.

NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of July 24, 2015

Going for "Gold".

Going for “Gold”.

This week’s New Music Friday gives us a Woman or two and some record royalty in our music collection. So, put on your crown and take the throne, because here are this week’s new album and single releases:

  • JILL SCOTT — Woman (iTunes)
    • R&B and soul singer Scott hasn’t released an album of original material since 2011’s The Light Of The Sun, and the set became her first to enter at #1 on the Billboard 200 album chart. She hopes to continue to shine brightly with a new album, her fifth and latest, featuring the single “Fool’s Gold”, which is currently #3 on the Urban AC survey. It should be next week’s top debut.
  • PRINCE ROYCE — Double Vision (iTunes)
    • This hot Latin star enters the English market for the first time, having accumulated eight #1 singles on the Tropical Airplay chart. Single “Stuck On A Feeling” stuck it out on the pop survey, breaking into top 20 after a jump start via iHeartMedia’s On The Verge program, but followup “Back It Up” seems to be stuck below the top 40 at the format.
  • BEA MILLER — Not An Apology (iTunes)
    • 16-year-old Miller appeared on the U.S. version of The X Factor in 2012 and is currently on the pop radio airwaves with “Fire N Gold”, the followup to a minor top 40 hit, “Young Blood”. No need to be sorry for enjoying this one.
  • More albums out this week: Ashley Monroe‘s The Blade (iTunes), Joe Satriani‘s Shockwave Supernova (iTunes), Lamb Of God‘s VII: Sturm Und Drang (iTunes), Lynyrd Skynyrd‘s One More For The Fans (iTunes), Roger Waters‘s Amused To Death (iTunes), Symphony X‘s Underworld (iTunes) and the original soundtrack to Southpaw (iTunes)
  • More EPs out this week: Elbow‘s Lost Worker Bee (iTunes), MKTO‘s Bad Girls (iTunes), Vanessa Carlton‘s Blue Pool (iTunes)

New digital-only singles that you can buy this week include:

  • “Hold Each Other”, new from A Great Big World and Futuristic. (iTunes)
  • “I Am Invincible”, new from Cassadee Pope. (iTunes)
  • “Lemon Eyes”, a new single from Meg Myers. (iTunes)
  • “Sugar”, a new single from Jennifer Nettles. (iTunes)

Next Friday, our preview will include fresh releases from Migos, Saint Asonia and more. See you then!

POP! Goes The Discovery: A First Spin Of Spotify’s Discover Weekly

Wide awake and streaming.

Wide awake and streaming.

Discovery Weekly premiered on Spotify feeds everywhere on Monday, a “weekly mixtape” (as determined by the service) that is specially focused on exposing listeners to newer acts and album tracks/one-off releases that are customized to their tastes. With many streaming choices for consumers at the moment, including a huge competitor in the recently launched Apple Music, I have decided to stay with Spotify and keep my usual lists updated on there. (Of course, I’ll take up as many free trials as I can.) So, off I went into the unknown to check out what I could discover…

Due to most of my streaming activity coming from current-based lists, it’s no surprise that this affected my Discovery picks; they managed to assemble a collection of songs that were all released either this and last year. I’m sure this will change as my streams vary in the future. For now, the series of 28 (now 29, see below) songs chosen for me this week looks like this:

SAM DEW – “Air” (RCA)
ZAK WATERS – “Pony”
(Faux)
YOUNG RISING SONS – “F**ked Up”
(Interscope)
IMAGINARY FUTURE featuring KINA GRANNIS – “Forever On Your Side”
(self-released)
KOPECKY – “Talk To Me”
(ATO)
THE MOWGLI’S – “Whatever Forever”
(Photo Finish/Republic)
GIN WIGMORE – “New Rush”
(Island/Republic)
SACHAL – “Cover The Water” 
(OKeh/Sony Music)
ELLE KING – “America’s Sweetheart”
 (RCA)
ZAC BROWN BAND – “Beautiful Drug”
(Southern Ground/Big Machine/Republic/John Varvatos)
HILARY DUFF – “My Kind”
(RCA)
LORD HURON – “Louisa”
(IAMSOUND)
JON BELLION – “All Time Low” 
(Capitol)
SISTER SPARROW AND THE DIRTY BIRDS – “Sugar”
(Party Fowl)
ALESSO featuring RYAN TEDDER – “Scars”
(Def Jam)
SHEPPARD – “Find Someone”
(Republic)
ELLIPHANT – “Never Been In Love (RAC Remix)”
(Kemosabe/TEN Music)
KID ASTRAY – “It’s Alright”
(Cosmos)
ANGEL SNOW – “Secret”
(self-released)
RYAN CABRERA – “House On Fire”
(Dynamite Music)
ZERBIN – “Worlds On Fire”
(self-released)
JORDAN BRATTON – “Victoria”
(RCA)
COLEMAN HELL – “Take Me Up” 
(Columbia) **
MISS E – “Hummingbird”
(Tilted Prod.)
CRUISR – “Go For It”
(Vagrant)
BEN SCHULLER – “Breaking Out”
(self-released)
OH HONEY – “Sugar, You”
(Fueled By Ramen/Atlantic)
RACHEL PLATTEN – “Lone Ranger”
(Columbia)
KIESZA – “Stronger”
(Island/Republic)

** This song was added on Tuesday after the initial batch of songs appeared, with no reason given.

Label Breakdown
Independent: 12
Sony Music: 7 (8 counting “Take”)
Universal Music: 8
Warner Music: 1

Top 5 Picks
1. Elle King: as “Ex’s And Oh’s” goes to CHR radio, “America’s Sweetheart” could be the followup to maintain her momentum.
2. Zac Brown Band: “Beautiful Drug” is an obvious crossover single that should work well for the upcoming autumn months.
3. Young Rising Sons: I’ve been a fan of this New Jersey act since last year, and “F**ked Up” is a highlight of their live shows.
4. Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds: This buzzy band based in the Big Apple hits a sweet spot with “Sugar”, a tasty tune.
5. Miss E: A sync for “Hummingbird” on the series Orange Is The New Black put this music into motion, and it is a solid single.

Though only a handful of the acts were new to me, mostly independent ones at that, I wasn’t familiar with fifteen of the songs on the playlist, which definitely showcases the strength of selection in terms of deeper cuts and/or under-appreciated album cuts. I thought that it was particularly interesting that one of the major labels, Warner Music, was only allotted one slot in the over two dozen songs. I’m not sure that the snub was intentional, but a better distribution of bigger and smaller labels is something that a next update could improve upon. I also think the length of the playlist should be slightly longer, but that’s coming from a person who builds much longer playlists and listens to them for hours at a time. That being said, somewhere between 32-38 songs (let’s call it between 2 hours and 2 hours, 20 minutes) would be a little more ideal for me, especially given the familiarity of the acts in round one of this experiment.

Given the results so far, I would certainly use the playlist again, though probably more for finding or rediscovering songs from a band or singer I’m already familiar with rather than a totally new act. As a listener who views the radio, sales and streaming lists, reactions in the statistics from these mixtape additions could help to identify tracks that could work at the many formats or sync in advertising, both of which could lead to other opportunities and bumps in numbers, whether it be in social media, spins, etc. I shall be keeping a list handy; you never know when something might come back up on a blog post here!

Until then, let me know what you think of this new feature on Spotify. Click on the “Get Social!” tab at the top of the page to find PGTC on Facebook and Twitter and follow the blog by using the tab below.

Chart Notes:

  • We have a new one at the top this week as Dublin’s Gavin James rises 2-1 in his 13th week in the top 40 with “The Book Of Love”. James is the first Irish act to make it to the top spot with their first entry on my survey since The Script‘s “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved”, an eight week #1 back in 2009. Additionally, it is the first cover song (the act The Magnetic Fields did the original) to reach #1 since 2003. That’s when Sixpence None The Richer‘s “Don’t Dream It’s Over” (recorded by Crowded House in 1986) had a three-week run there. You can find the single in its original form on the EP For You and in a version recorded in concert on the album Live At Whelans.
  • Last week, John Newman‘s “Come And Get It” was tied for the week’s Biggest Mover with a leap of seven notches to #22, but that same move this week (rising to #15) earns him the title all his own. That new peak lands him one spot away from his biggest chart single to date, “Losing Sleep”, which went to #14 in February of last year. Newman’s song also looks like it will be big on the official chart in the U.K., where it’s currently in the top three on iTunes.
  • Carly Rae Jepsen recently spent a week at the top on my personal chart with “I Really Like You”, and while that descends the top 40, the liking continues for the second single from her forthcoming album E•MO•TION. “Run Away With Me” is the week’s Highest Debut at #39 and is scheduled to impact pop radio on Tuesday. A video recently premiered for the track.
  • Also new this week is the second charting single for the quartet based in Amsterdam who call themselves Causes. “Walk On Water” is in at #40, while their former #2 hit, “Teach Me How To Dance With You”, holds in position at #7. The band inked a deal with RCA Records in the U.K. a few days ago. We’ll see if the U.S. is next.
