Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut belongs to the fourth member of One Direction to hit my chart as a soloist. He’s Liam Payne, and he’s new at #37 with “Strip That Down”. The album version of this single features rapper Quavo of the trio Migos. The 23-year-old performer lands on the survey as Niall Horan‘s “Slow Hands” (#20) and Harry Styles‘s “Sign Of The Times” (#2) remain active, which could make for an interesting story later this summer. We’ll see how it goes. For now, Payne is off to a good start!
  • Katy Perry has this week’s other debut with “Swish Swish”, landing at #40. It’s the third radio single from her forthcoming album Witness, which you’ll witness in stores on June 9. The album version features rapper Nicki Minaj. This track comes about a month after “Bon Appétit” debuted, which stalled out at multiple formats following mixed research and tepid digital sales and streaming data. Will Perry’s new era get back on track? Stay tuned.
  • Next week, new radio songs from Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness and John Mayer, as well as a potential chart newcomer, Jasmine Thompson, should be among the stronger candidates in the running for a top 40 debut. However, as the number of big summer releases continues to grow, will anything pop up before the Memorial Day Weekend? Find out on Sunday!

Chart Notes:

  • Four new songs break into this week’s chart, led by Miley Cyrus‘s “Malibu” at #37. Cyrus’s single debuted on Thursday and climbed to #1 on iTunes, while also making a speedy entry on the pop radio chart thanks to hourly airplay from iHeartMedia stations on the afternoon of its release. Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie‘s “In My World” enters at #38; that marks the legendary Fleetwood Mac members’ first hit as a duo. At 73, McVie is now the oldest artist to ever appear on my list, besting 71-year-old Mike Love’s contribution to 2012’s “That’s Why God Made The Radio” (#28) by The Beach Boys.
  • Newcomer Tom Walker rolls into the #39 slot with “Just You And I”, which is featured on his recent EP release, Blessings. The Scottish singer/songwriter’s track heads to Hot AC radio in June, and then to Top 40 radio in July. Finally, entering this week at #40 is Skip Marley and his second top 40 single, “Calm Down”. You’ll recall that he’s featured on Katy Perry‘s #1 song “Chained To The Rhythm”, which recently spent four weeks atop my chart. (It drops to #11 this week.)

Chart Notes:

  • We’ve had a fair amount of songs spending one or two weeks at the top this year, and that means there’s a new song climbing into the #1 slot again this week. Up 2-1, that would be “Don’t Take The Money” by Bleachers. It’s Jack Antonoff’s second #1 with that act, having previously spent a week at the top in 2014 with “I Wanna Get Better”. However, he also spent a massive 18 career weeks at #1 with fun., who ranked with “We Are Young” (two weeks), “Some Nights” (eight weeks) and “Carry On” (eight weeks) between 2012 and 2013. It’s great to have him back at the top!
  • This week’s Highest Debut is by sisters Alana, Danielle and Este Haim, coming in at #36 with “Want You Back”. It is the first single from the group’s forthcoming album Something To Tell You, due July 7. The three siblings previously reached my top 40 in 2013 with “The Wire”, which peaked at #11 in early 2014. Their new single impacts at Alternative radio in a little under two weeks, and I’m hoping it does well this summer at the format!
  • At #37 is this week’s other debut, “Slow Hands” by Niall Horan. It’s the second solo top 40 song for the singer who first hit as a part of One Direction, and it follows “This Town”, which spent a week at #1. Horan’s debut makes it three members of that popular act who are currently in the countdown on their own, with Harry Styles (“Sign Of The Times”, #2) and ZAYN (“I Don’t Wanna Live Forever”, #27) also present.

RADIO REPORT: POP! Goes The Picks (May 2017)

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 during the month. Which tunes will climb to the top and which ones will hit a stop? Here’s a selection of new singles being serviced in May in this month’s Radio Report:

TRAIN – “Drink Up” (Columbia, May 1 – Hot AC)
Album: a girl a bottle a boat (2017)
Past HAC History: Leader Pat Monahan and the San Francisco group have been a mainstay on the Hot AC chart since 1999, and at the beginning of the year, “Play That Song” became their 14th top ten single on the survey. We’ll see if the panel takes a sip of this.

FOSTER THE PEOPLE – “Doing It For The Money” (Columbia, May 2 – Alternative)
Album: III (EP) (2017)
Past ALT History: The California quartet, who previously charted as a trio, has a total of six top 40 hits to date at the format, with four breaking into the top ten. The lone #1, “Pumped Up Kicks”, spent six sensational weeks at the summit in the summer of 2011.

OH WONDER – “Ultralife” (Republic, May 2 – Alternative)
Album: Ultralife (2017)
Past ALT History: This London duo, who built a following on various streaming services and Hype Machine blogs, put out a single per month for one year, which began in the fall of 2014. One of them, “Lose It”, received some minor airplay in the spring of 2016.

HAILEE STEINFELD – “Most Girls” (Republic, May 2 – CHR/Top 40)
Album: TBA
Past CHR History: Actress and singer Steinfeld’s had three top 40 pop hits since 2015, including the #14 single “Love Myself” and the Zedd and Grey-assisted “Starving”, which held for three weeks at #5 earlier this year. There’s no word yet on her debut album.

KATY PERRY featuring MIGOS – “Bon Appétit” (Capitol, May 2 – CHR/Top 40)
Album: TBA
Past CHR History: Perry’s “Chained To The Rhythm” lost its rhythm in the #8 spot recently, despite one of the biggest batches of first week adds (174) in the history of the PPW era. Even with a few social media missteps, the singer (and rap trio) will soldier on.

CLEAN BANDIT featuring ZARA LARSSON – “Symphony” (Big Beat/Atlantic, May 16 – CHR/Top 40)
Album: TBA
Past CHR History: Daily struggle! This English trio’s “Rockabye”, featuring Anne-Marie and Sean Paul, recently reached #4 at the format. They have yet to hit #1. Larsson got to #5 in a duet with MNEK last year, “Never Forget You”, and has five entries to date.

SHAWN HOOK featuring VANESSA HUDGENS – “Reminding Me” (Hollywood, May 16 – CHR/Top 40)
Album: TBA
Past CHR History: Canadian singer Hook reached #21 last year with “Sound Of Your Heart”, a single that also made the top 30 on the Hot AC chart. American actress and singer Hudgens last hit the top 40 in 2006 with “Come Back To Me”, which peaked at #18.

RAG’N’BONE MAN – “Skin” (Columbia, May 23 – Alternative)
Album: Human (2017)
Past ALT History: The 32-year-old English performer is still climbing at the Hot AC and Top 40 formats with title track “Human”. The global hit, initially boosted by iHeartMedia’s On The Verge program, spent two weeks at #1 on the Alternative chart in March.

Plenty of unreleased summer singles are still on the way, so make sure you watch out for them as they debut…

Chart Notes:

  • Three new songs make this week’s top 40, and the highest of them is the latest single for California’s Foster The People. A surprise EP called III just dropped from the quartet (formerly trio) on Thursday, and one of the three cuts from it, “Doing It For The Money”, debuts at #37. In 2014, the guys reached my top ten with “Coming Of Age” (#3) and “Best Friend” (#6), the first two singles off their Supermodel album. (A third single, “Are You What You Want To Be?”, peaked at #16.) Is their new one bound for a top ten peak as well? We’ll see very soon.
  • Katy Perry (and featured artist Skip Marley) recently topped my chart for four weeks with “Chained To The Rhythm”. In this week’s top 40, it’s down to #4, but Perry doesn’t miss a beat, debuting at #38 with “Bon Appétit”. It’s the second release from her forthcoming album, which we still don’t know much about. “Rhythm” recently peaked at #8 on the pop radio chart, making it Perry’s lowest-charting lead single ever at the format, and its first week total of 174 adds is now a record for a song that failed to hit #1 in the PPW (plays-per-week) era.
  • Finally, at #40, is the second top 40 single for FRANKIE. Originally released in early 2015 via Nashville label South By Sea and subsequently picked up by RCA later that year, “Problems Problems” was just reissued with singer Marc E. Bassy. It’s been just under year since the act first hit my top 40 with “New Obsession”, which hit #24. Bassy led the band 2AM Club to one top 40 single, “Worry About You” (#22), on my chart in 2010, though he had a top ten Rhythmic radio hit last year with the G-Eazy-assisted “You & Me”.

NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of April 28, 2017

There’s something about Mary…

When the Queen Of Hip-Hop Soul faces off against other chart royalty in the battle for the week’s highest debut, you know it is going to be a good fight. Get your downloads and streams ready, because here comes the latest new releases update:

MARY J. BLIGE – Strength Of A Woman (iTunes)
Blige should show some notable Strength in the marketplace with her latest studio album, which comes after a pair of #1 songs at the Urban AC format: “Thick Of It” and “U + Me (Love Lesson)”. It also includes “Love Yourself”, featuring Kanye West, which is on its way up the Urban chart. A dozen of her previous studio albums, dating back to 1992, have hit the top ten on the Billboard 200, and a top five debut is certainly possible for her latest effort.

WALE – Shine (iTunes)
Pushed up a week from its initial release date, perhaps due to a battle brewing between new sets from Chris Stapleton and Logic, this popular rapper’s fifth studio album is his first in two years. The lead single from it, “Fashion Week” (featuring G-Eazy), ranks in the top 30 at Urban radio, and sits just outside the top 40 at the Rhythmic format. The album will likely debut in the top five.

GORILLAZ – Humanz (iTunes)
The animated band is back with their first album in six years. Single “We Got The Power”, featuring Jehnny Beth, quickly reached its top 40 peak on the Alternative chart, though it’s not so powerful now, as it tumbles down the survey. Will this release return them to the top ten for the first time since 2010? We’ll see soon.

CASHMERE CAT – 9 (iTunes)
He’s one cool Cat. This album features collaborations with a number of popular acts, including Ariana Grande and The Weeknd. One single from it, the Selena Gomez and Tory Lanez-assisted “Trust Nobody”, received some minor pop airplay last year.

More albums out this week: All That Remains‘s Madness (iTunes), Feist‘s Pleasure (iTunes), John Mellencamp‘s Sad Clowns & Hillbillies (iTunes), Lea Michele‘s Places (iTunes), New Found Glory‘s Makes Me Sick (iTunes), Old Crow Medicine Show‘s 50 Years Of Blonde On Blonde (iTunes), Sylvan Esso‘s What Now (iTunes), The Cranberries‘s Something Else (iTunes), Trombone Shorty‘s Parking Lot Symphony (iTunes), Willie Nelson‘s God’s Problem Child (iTunes)

Adam’s Top 100 of 2014: #30-21

The cream of the pop!

The cream of the pop for 2014.

Another year is in the books and it’s time for the annual listing of the 100 biggest songs that ranked among my weekly top 40 chart from December 2013 to November 2014. It was magical year full of MAGIC! and “Magic” and a lovely twelve months of lovable hits from James Blunt and The Fray. We went “home” with A Great Big World and Andy Grammer, spun around in a “dance” with Milky Chance and Walk The Moon and ended up here with all that was awesome in the year we called 2014.

Peak positions listed are as of the last chart included in the year dated November 30, 2014. Those entries marked with a plus sign (+) had not yet reached their peak position as of the date. Ties in points were broken based on peak, number of weeks at peak and number of weeks in the top 40.
