It’s time once again to analyze the airwaves and find out if your favorite new releases will be lighting up your local station’s playlist this week. Which tunes will climb to the top and which ones will hit a stop? Here’s the sole track impacting this week at the Top 40 format:
PORTUGAL. THE MAN – “Feel It Still” (Atlantic)
Album: Woodstock (2017)
Past T40 History: This is the band’s first single to impact at Top 40 radio. It’s led the Alternative radio chart for the last six weeks.
Even though this appears to be a slower week, you never know when an act is going to return with his/her/their latest single… that isn’t meant to suggest that I know anything in advance, but just be on the lookout. It happens! Meanwhile, I would assume that the two biggest impacting singles from last week, from Louis Tomlinson and Selena Gomez, will perform well again this week.
Next week: sibling trio AJR brings a whole lot of “Drama” to the format, Harry Styles takes us in another Direction and looks for solo hit number “Two”, while new boy band Why Don’t We delivers “Something” delectable for the teen pop market.
Which of these new songs would you like to see top the charts? Let me know!
