NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of May 12, 2017

A Stylish chart-topper.

Choose your musical direction, even a member of One Direction, and you shall be rewarded this week. With so many new albums and singles to choose from, there’s no way to go wrong. Here’s all the action from this week’s schedule:

HARRY STYLES – Harry Styles (iTunes)
Styles is the second member of One Direction (following ZAYN) to put out a solo album, and the highly-anticipated set could get a brisk sales week at the top of the chart. It’s led by the epic track “Sign Of The Times”, which is climbing towards the top ten at both Hot AC and Top 40 radio. With a residency on James Corden’s late night show coming next week, the latest in some larger looks for the performer on television, as well as plenty of digital and streaming promotion, the album’s progress will be interesting to watch.

PARAMORE – After Laughter (iTunes)
Released just under a month after the debut of single “Hard Times”, this trio’s fifth studio album marks the return of drummer Zac Farro, who left the band in 2010. (Feel free to insert your best “they’ve had more band members than hits” one-liner.) Recorded in Nashville, this release is looking to debut in the top five, which would be their third album in a row to hit the region.

MACHINE GUN KELLY – Bloom (iTunes)
After a chart-topping collaboration with Camila Cabello and a solid follow-up with Hailee Steinfeld, the Texas rapper is out to reach the top three on the Billboard 200, having previously peaked at #4 twice, with his third studio album. Expect him to continue to perform well at radio with this set through the end of the year.

ZAC BROWN BAND – Welcome Home (iTunes)
Going back to their roots on their latest studio release, this Georgia group is currently in the top 20 on the Country radio chart with the lead single from that effort, “My Old Man”. Brown and the boys likely won’t capture their fourth #1 on the Billboard 200, but at least the set will break the top ten.

More albums out this week: Dreamcar‘s Dreamcar (iTunes), LeToya Luckett‘s Back 2 Life (iTunes), Scott Helman‘s Hôtel de Ville (iTunes), Hello, Dolly! (Soundtrack) (iTunes)

More EPs out this week: Goo Goo Dolls‘s You Should Be Happy (iTunes), Ingrid Michaelson‘s Alter Egos (iTunes), New Kids On The Block‘s Thankful (iTunes), Seramic‘s I Got You (iTunes), Tom Walker‘s Blessings (iTunes), Wrabel‘s We Could Be Beautiful (iTunes)

ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2016: Part Three, 25-11

All the top tunes from the year that was.

All the top tunes from the year that was.

75 songs have come and gone, and now, we’re headed into the top 25 on my Top 100 of 2016. All 25 titles reached the top five at some point during their runs, which deserves a “HandClap” or two. From the U.K. to Canada and back to the U.S., we have a diverse group of acts coming to you in the next 15 songs. So, take the “Adventure Of A Lifetime” and scroll down to see what singles were powerful enough to rank just below the top ten on my year-end survey…

The 2016 chart year encompasses the period of 52 charts from the list dated December 6, 2015 to the list dated November 27, 2016. Peaks provided reflect the highest position reached by the final chart of the survey year. For any ties in points, a song with a higher peak is listed first, and further ties are broken by the weeks stayed in the top 40. 168 songs in total had at least one point qualify towards the year-end chart, an increase from the 165 that did so in 2015.

25. THE 1975, “The Sound”
Writer(s): The 1975
Album: I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It
Label: Dirty Hit/Interscope
Peak: #3
Weeks: 23

They keep falling short of the top ten on Alternative radio, but this English quartet has five top ten singles on my own survey.

24. PHANTOGRAM, “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore”
Writer(s): Eric Frederic, Phantogram, Dan Wilson, Edwin Bocage, Alfred Scramuzza
Album: Three
Label: Republic
Peak: #2
Weeks: 21

Though I was familiar with this duo’s music before 2016, this track was their first to make my list. The production is amazing.

23. SERENA RYDER, “Got Your Number”
Writer(s): Todd Clark, Derek A.E. Fuhrmann, Ryder
Album: TBA
Label: Atlantic
Peak: #2
Weeks: 22+

“Stompa” made my top 20 in 2013, but I’m a much bigger fan of this lovely single. It went top ten on Hot AC radio in Canada.

22. SHAWN HOOK, “Sound Of Your Heart”
Writer(s): Todd Clark, Hook, Stephen Kozmeniuk
Album: TBA
Label: Hollywood
Peak: #4
Weeks: 23

Todd Clark strikes again! He just knows how to craft an excellent tune. Hook’s been charting in Canada for several years now.

21. ADELE, “Hello”
Writer(s): Adele, Greg Kurstin
Album: 25
Label: XL/Columbia
Peak: #1 for seven weeks (2015/2016)
Weeks: 19 (25 total, including 2015 weeks)

Yes, it would’ve done better if those six weeks had counted for the 2016 year, but it’s a smash! She has two songs left on here.

20. FITZ & THE TANTRUMS, “HandClap”
Writer(s): Fitz & The Tantrums, Sam Hollander, Eric Frederic
Album: Fitz & The Tantrums
Label: Elektra/Atlantic
Peak: #3
Weeks: 22

Months after it reached the top five on Alternative radio, the crossover craze has begun for this single. Get your hands ready.

19. GWEN STEFANI, “Make Me Like You”
Writer(s): Stefani, Justin Tranter, Julia Michaels, Mattias Larsson, Robin Fredriksson
Album: This Is What The Truth Feels Like
Label: Interscope
Peak: #2
Weeks: 22

Stefani’s comeback album gave her three top 40 hits on my personal chart, with this outstanding single becoming the biggest.

18. INGRID MICHAELSON, “Hell No”
Album: It Doesn’t Have To Make Sense
Writer(s): Michaelson, Barry Dean, Luke Laird
Label: Cabin 24/Sony RED
Peak: #4
Weeks: 23

Michaelson touched my top ten once before with 2009’s “Maybe”, but this ear candy was more than just a “maybe” this year.

17. JORDAN FISHER, “All About Us”
Writer(s): Rory Andrew, Jenna Andrews, Dylan Pace-Rodriguez, Francesco Yates
Album: Jordan Fisher (EP)
Label: Hollywood
Peak: #1 for one week
Weeks: 23

Best known for roles in Grease: Live and Teen Beach Movie, Fisher scored with a sensational set (his debut EP) during 2016.

16. THE STRUMBELLAS, “Spirits”
Writer(s): The Strumbellas
Album: Hope
Label: Glassnote
Peak: #2
Weeks: 25

Whether you have “guns” or “dreams” in your head, depending on the version, this Canadian sextet had a nice breakout year.

15. COLDPLAY, “Adventure Of A Lifetime”
Writer(s): Coldplay, Mikkel S. Eriksen, Tor Erik Hermansen
Album: A Head Full Of Dreams
Label: Parlophone/Atlantic
Peak: #1 for two weeks
Weeks: 20 (24 total, including 2015 weeks)

The English band scored their seventh huge #1 on my chart this year, a record at the time, but it’s since been passed by Adele.

14. BEN RECTOR, “Brand New”
Writer(s): Rector, David Hodges, Abe Stoklasa
Album: Brand New
Label: Aptly Named/Capitol/Caroline
Peak: #5
Weeks: 25

Rector’s first hit on my chart was a giant, and it certainly had some longevity. Bandmate Cody Fry’s “Go” also hit the top 100.

13. P!NK, “Just Like Fire”
Writer(s): P!nk, Max Martin, Karl Johan Schuster, Oscar Holter
Album: Alice Through The Looking Glass (Soundtrack)
Label: RCA
Peak: #3
Weeks: 23

2016 was another great year for soundtracks. This song gave the pop superstar her third top ten hit from a movie since 2001.

12. WALK THE MOON, “Work This Body”
Writer(s): Walk The Moon
Album: Talking Is Hard
Label: RCA
Peak: #1 for one week
Weeks: 23

Three #1 hits, three different calendar years, all from the same album. It’s a rare feat, but a cool one for this great Ohio band.

11. PASSENGER, “Somebody’s Love”
Writer(s): Passenger
Album: Young As The Morning, Old As The Sea
Label: Nettwerk
Peak: #1 for one week
Weeks: 23

You know how I love his music so, and the fifth #1 hit on my chart from this English musician was no exception. Great album!

Stay tuned for more of the Top 100 of 2016 tomorrow, when I reveal the first half of my top ten songs from the list…

Chart Notes:

  • A number of younger male soloists have reached the top of my chart this year, including 20-year-old Troye Sivan and 22-year-olds Jordan Fisher and Zayn Malik. This week, however, a singer who turns 19 in four days claims both the new #1 song on the countdown and the title of the youngest male soloist to ever reach the summit. He’s James Taylor-Watts, better known as James TW, and his hit is called “When You Love Someone”. The song is up 2-1 in its ninth week on the chart. It’s featured on his EP titled First Impressions, out now. Happy (early) birthday!
  • When it comes to #1 singles on my chart, Adele leads the pack (along with Coldplay) with a total of seven chart-toppers. A chance at that eighth #1 is looking possible now, as “Water Under The Bridge” lands my Highest Debut this week at #38. It’s the fourth single to chart from 25, which was recently certified Diamond. Her U.S. tour continues through next month.
  • Ingrid Michaelson hit #4 earlier this year with “Hell No”, which became her highest-charting song to date on my list. She returns to the chart at #39 with “Still The One”, the second radio single from It Doesn’t Have To Make Sense. We’ll see how it does at Hot AC radio on Halloween, the day when it haunts program directors for a solid adds date.
  • Finally, at #40, is the third top 40 single for Lukas Graham. “You’re Not There” heads to Hot AC radio on November 7. It follows “Mama Said”, which hit the top 15 at the format, and #9 on my personal chart for the Danish group.

Chart Notes:

  • The week’s Highest Debut is from 18-year-old singer/songwriter James Taylor-Watts, better known as James TW. New at #38, “When You Love Someone” marks his first time on my chart. The original version is on his EP First Impressions, and a new acoustic mix is available as a stand-alone single. It’s been a moment since James Taylor was on my chart; his last song to reach my top 40 was “It’s Growing”, which went to #25 for two weeks in late 2008.
  • Nashville newcomer Cody Fry makes my top 40 at #39 with his single “Go”. He appeared as a contestant on American Idol in 2015. You can catch Fry playing in Ben Rector‘s band on his The Biggest Tour I Have Done So Far Tour, which goes into the fall. We’ll see if he can beat Rector’s #5 peak for “Brand New” from earlier this year.
  • Finally, at #40, is a big hit from the Country radio listing. Looking to crossover to the pop world, it’s “Setting The World On Fire” by Kenny Chesney, which features P!nk. It’s Chesney’s second single to reach my chart; “Somewhere With You” hit #23 for two weeks in 2011. His Cosmic Hallelujah album is due October 28.

NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of August 26, 2016

Keep tabs on Babs.

Keep tabs on Babs.

The old and the new converge on this last New Music Friday of August, and there’s plenty of time to sample all of that late summer rush of music. The question is, who will you listen to first? Here are the notable albums and singles released this week:

  • BARBRA STREISAND — Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway (iTunes)
    • Several of the titles in this week’s report could end up at #1 on the Billboard 200 next week, with this new set of duets from the legendary Streisand and friends looking like it might follow 2014’s Partners to the top of the chart. She’ll be on The Tonight Show later this evening to promote the album with a performance featuring actor Alec Baldwin.
  • FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE — Dig Your Roots (iTunes)
    • The popular male duo has a crossover hit in “H.O.L.Y.”, a recent #1 on the Country radio chart that currently sits just under the top 20 at Hot AC radio, with “May We All” now racing up the top 40 at their core format. The set will likely have a solid first week, but will probably be under what 2014’s Anything Goes did in its debut frame.
  • BRITNEY SPEARS — Glory (iTunes)
    • After 2013’s Britney Jean and a series of radio singles failed to make a lasting impact on the charts, the superstar has a chance to reclaim her former chart glory with her ninth studio album. It’s led by “Make Me…”, a recent top 20 song on the CHR/Top 40 radio chart.
  • INGRID MICHAELSON — It Doesn’t Have To Make Sense (iTunes)
    • As “Hell No” remains in the top 20 on Hot AC radio, Michaelson is out with her seventh studio album. She’s hit a high of #5 on the Billboard 200 with her previous two releases. Can she make it three in a row?
  • CARLY RAE JEPSEN — E•MO•TION: Side B (iTunes)
    • Are we worthy of another pop music treasure? This set commemorates the first anniversary of E•MO•TION, released worldwide on August 21 of last year. It’s sure to be another fun listen.
  • More albums out this week: Banks & Steelz‘s Anything But Words (iTunes), Butch Walker‘s Stay Gold (iTunes), Cassius‘s Ibifornia (iTunes), Celine Dion‘s Encore Un Soir (iTunes), CNCO‘s Primera Cita (iTunes), DREAMERS‘s This Album Does Not Exist (iTunes), Futuristic‘s As Seen On The Internet (iTunes), Glass Animals‘s How To Be A Human Being (iTunes), Tesla‘s Mechanical Resonance (Live) (iTunes), Unspoken‘s Follow Through (iTunes), Young Thug‘s No, My Name Is JEFFREY (iTunes), XOXO (TV Soundtrack) (iTunes)

Chart Notes:

  • Climbing from 3-1 this week, Wrabel has the new #1 song on my countdown with “11 Blocks”. It’s his first time at the top. A steady set of gains also puts him in the top 20 on Hot AC radio, recently securing additional airplay thanks to iHeartMedia’s On The Verge program. Chart fact, anyone? This is the first time a song title containing a number matches the same amount of weeks it took said song to reach #1 on my survey. Weird? Cool? Perhaps a little of both. Way to go!
  • This week’s Highest Debut marks the return of Canada’s Michael Bublé. He enters at #39 with “Nobody But Me”, the title track from his forthcoming set. Bublé has been to #1 four times on my chart: 2007’s “Everything” started it off, followed by 2009’s “Haven’t Met You Yet”, 2010’s “Hollywood” and 2013’s “It’s A Beautiful Day”. Combined, those chart hits totaled 15 weeks at the top. Is he due for more later this year? We’ll see.
  • The week’s second debut marks another return to the chart, this one for legendary rockers Bon Jovi. At #40, they come in with “This House Is Not For Sale”, the title song from their forthcoming album. The New Jersey band was last in the top 40 three years ago with “Because We Can”, which peaked at #14.

Chart Notes:

  • Scoring his fifth #1 on my personal chart, Passenger is up 2-1 with “Somebody’s Love”. It’s the first single from the album Young As The Morning, Old As The Sea, due September 23. While not a record, the performer is nearing that magic seven, which two acts (Adele and Coldplay) are currently sitting at. Given the set’s release date in a few weeks, we’ll see what the era is capable of soon.
  • This week’s Highest Debut, at #36, is a new one from OneRepublic. “Kids” follows “Wherever I Go”, which quickly hit the top ten a few weeks ago. (It recently crashed at several radio formats due to poor testing.) The group’s fourth studio album is due sometime later this year, and a music video for their new single should make its debut soon.
  • Sounding like a TK Records release circa 1976, “Move” from Saint Motel debuts at #38 this week. It’s the band’s third top 40 hit on my chart, and it’ll be featured on their forthcoming saintmotelevision album, due October 21. Of course, the guys are best known for “My Type”, which spent four weeks at #1 last year.
  • Finally, at #39, is the third top 40 hit for The Griswolds, a four-man band out of Sydney, Australia. Their newest entry is “Out Of My Head”. They previously reached my top ten in 2014 with “Beware The Dog”, which held at #9 for four weeks.
