Chart Notes:

  • The first top 40 single for 23-year-old singer and songwriter Julia Michaels is now her first #1 on my personal chart. Up a notch, from 2-1, “Issues” is the first song to be released off an EP titled Nervous System, due sometime in May. If you watch Girls on HBO, then you probably heard her “How Do We Get Back To Love” in a recent episode, though that song isn’t out at the moment. Stay tuned for more Michaels music mania in the coming weeks on the blog…
  • In a shocker to probably no one, Harry Styles has the week’s Biggest Mover with “Sign Of The Times”, jumping from 34-21 in its second week on the chart. It’s the lead single from his forthcoming solo debut, a self-titled effort, due May 12. Look for it to reach the top ten in the next few weeks. Soaring from 21-12, “Don’t Take The Money” by Bleachers is a sure bet for the region next week. The fight for the top spot should be an interesting one next month.
  • I’ve got a strange feeling about this week’s countdown… perhaps it’s because of those two strangers entering the top 40. The higher of the two is “Kissing Strangers”, the fourth top 40 entry by DNCE, debuting at #37. It features Nicki Minaj. Mike Posner comes in just below that, at #39, with what also becomes his fourth charting single, “In The Arms Of A Stranger”. At the current time, both tracks sit below the top 50 on the CHR/Top 40 chart.

RADIO REPORT: POP! Goes The Picks (April 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 April in this month’s Radio Report:

BLEACHERS – “Don’t Take The Money” (RCA, April 4 – Alternative)
Album: Everybody Lost Somebody (2017)
Past ALT History: Jack Antonoff’s popular project has stormed the top five on the Alternative chart with two tracks: “I Wanna Get Better” (#1, one week) and “Rollercoaster” (#3). With a strong start over the past few days, I expect this release to join them soon.

COIN – “I Don’t Wanna Dance” (Columbia, April 4 – Alternative)
Album: How Will You Know If You Never Try (2017)
Past ALT History: This Nashville group’s breakout hit, “Talk Too Much”, talked its way up to #8 earlier this year. Despite the slow run of that song, the band now has some momentum ahead of their album release later this month. We’ll see how this tune moves.

HEY VIOLET – “Break My Heart” (Caroline, April 4 – CHR/Top 40)
Album: TBA
Past CHR History: The California group, previously known as Cherri Bomb, reached a peak of #18 earlier this year with “Guys My Age”. Their label, also responsible for Ben Rector’s “Brand New” (#26) from last summer, doesn’t have much pull on the pop side.

MIKE POSNER – “In The Arms Of A Stranger” (Island/Republic, April 4 – CHR/Top 40)
Album: At Night. Alone. (2016)
Past CHR History: Posner has eight top 50 appearances to date, half failing to reach the top 40. However, his 2016 comeback will be remembered as one of the most impressive of the decade, with a remix of “I Took A Pill In Ibiza” spending two weeks at the top.

OLIVIA HOLT – “History” (Hollywood, April 4 – CHR/Top 40)
Album: Olivia (EP) (2016)
Past CHR History: This is Holt’s first track to impact here. Is another classic top 30 brick wall in the works for Hollywood’s latest? Considering the results of other pop acts on their roster, like Jordan Fisher, Sabrina Carpenter and Shawn Hook, it could happen.

JAMES TW – “Ex” (Island/Republic, April 10 – Hot AC)
Album: TBA
Past HAC History: I was really rooting for his ballad “When You Love Someone”, which spent seven weeks atop my personal chart in 2016, when it was at the format. Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be, just edging into the top 30. I’m hoping this has a nice run.

RUTH B – “Superficial Love” (Columbia, April 10 – Hot AC)
Album: Safe Haven (2017)
Past HAC History: From Vine star to radio star, the Canadian singer and songwriter’s “Lost Boy” got found in the top ten, peaking at #6 last year. There’s been an unusually long amount of time between the two singles at Hot AC. How will it affect the chart run?

SIGRID – “Don’t Kill My Vibe” (Island/Republic, April 11 – CHR/Top 40)
Album: TBA
Past CHR History: This Norwegian performer is headed to U.S. radio for the first time, and her debut single is already a sales and streaming hit in her home country. We’ll see if the newcomer can match the heights of a-ha and their #1 from 1985, “Take On Me”.

TINASHE – “Flame” (RCA, April 11 – CHR/Top 40)
Album: TBA
Past CHR History: While not yet a prominent name on the CHR airwaves, this performer has achieved some success at the format in the last few years, including the #20 hit “2 On” in 2014. Plus, who doesn’t love an artist promoting her new song on a fire truck?

LANY – “ILYSB” (Interscope, April 17 – Hot AC)
Album: Make Out (EP) (2015)
Past HAC History: If you’re a happenin’ hipster in the SoundCloud universe, you’re probably wondering why a track from 2014 is headed to radio. Honestly, I am too, but it’s nice to see this California trio is finally getting their first shot at some notable airplay.

THE 1975 – “A Change Of Heart” (Interscope, April 18 – Alternative)
Album: I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it (2016)
Past ALT History: The four guys from Manchester must’ve been pretty frustrated seeing song after song of theirs miss the top ten at the format, so they did something about it. “Somebody Else”, their fifth top 40 single here, took its time and reached a #3 peak.

YOUNGR – “Out Of My System” (Island/Republic, April 25 – Alternative)
Album: TBA
Past ALT History: What happens when the kid of Kid Creole takes on the playground we call Alternative radio? Format newcomer Dario Darnell is out to prove that his single is a wonderful thing, baby. This song’s been around for a year, but it still sounds fresh.

Which of these new songs would you like to see on the charts later this year? Let me know!

RADIO REPORT: POP! Goes The Picks (July 2016)

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 July in this month’s Radio Report:

Kungs
KUNGS vs. COOKIN’ ON 3 BURNERS – “This Girl” (July 5) (Alternative)
Label: Casablanca/Republic
What happens when a French DJ/producer remixes a 2009 album cut by an Australian soul trio? Well, you may just get a global hit out of it. 19-year-old Valentin Brunel has been creating remixes for several years, but this his been his biggest mix by far. Now, that international smash is coming to the U.S., where it’s gaining airplay at several formats. Will “Girl” become the queen of the charts?

Adam Friedman
ADAM FRIEDMAN featuring MIKE POSNER – “Lemonade” (July 11) (Triple A)
Label: Backtrack Music/INgrooves
Last month, Friedman performed this single on the TODAY Show as a part of Elvis Duran’s Artist Of The Month program. After the airing, it soared all the way into the top 200 on iTunes. Both this single and prior release “Pretty Things”, another Posner co-write, managed to score major Spotify playlists. The sweet sound of summer pop is ready to burst, so keep an eye out for Friedman’s rise.

Rob Thomas
ROB THOMAS – “Pieces” (July 11) (Hot AC)
Label: Atlantic
After two top 20 singles from his latest album, The Great Unknown, Thomas is looking for more chart success with the third. For a change of pace, this single is available in its original form, a radio mix and a remix by Dutch DJ/producer Sam Feldt. So, if you’re in the club and turnt up, or in the car and turning up the stereo, you’ve got options. The format truly needs his voice to stay on the air.

Tinie Tempah
TINIE TEMPAH featuring ZARA LARSSON – “Girls Like” (July 12) (CHR/Top 40)
Label: Warner Bros.
Though he’s had eight top ten singles on the U.K. Singles Chart as a main-credited artist, and plenty of other hit songs in a featured role, only one of them managed to hit the CHR top ten here. It was “Written In The Stars”, which went to #7 in 2011. Larsson is one of this year’s top breakouts at the format, after a few misfires in 2015. Together, these two could deliver one of the fall’s top tracks.

Weathers
WEATHERS – “Happy Pills” (July 12) (Alternative)
Label: RCA
Fresh off an early add in Los Angeles, the L.A.-based quartet has some great early buzz heading into their impact date. The group is quickly picking up some streaming support for both “Happy” and their previous single, “I Don’t Wanna Know”, while also prepping for a handful of U.S. dates in July and August. I think a hit doctor could easily prescribe them a massive run in the next few months.

Grouplove
GROUPLOVE – “Welcome To Your Life” (July 19) (Alternative)
Label: Canvasback/Atlantic
It’s been a while since we’ve heard from this group, who scored three top tens in a row on the Alternative chart in 2012 and 2013. Is “Welcome” ready to bring them back to a region? After a few smaller chart singles, it’ll certainly be a welcome sight. The track leads their upcoming album Big Mess, produced by Captain Cuts and Phil Ek. It is due at retailers and streaming outlets on September 9.

Nathan Sykes
NATHAN SYKES featuring G-EAZY – “Give It Up” (July 19) (CHR/Top 40)
Label: Global Entertainment
Former boy-bander Sykes is still looking for his first big U.S. hit as a solo artist. “Give” comes after “Kiss Me Quick” and “Over And Over Again” made a small splash at pop radio, with the latter song currently in the top 20 on the AC chart. With 2.5 million streams in three months on Spotify, the two guys certainly have some numbers to prove their case at radio. Will that momentum continue?

The Struts
THE STRUTS – “Put Your Money On Me” (July 19) (Alternative)
Label: FreeSolo/Interscope
The four English rockers have really been rockin’ on the Alternative chart, where their first two singles, “Could Have Been Me” and “Kiss This”, both reached the top ten. “Money” is from their album Everybody Wants, which was reissued earlier this year. Should the quartet film a new music video for it, I’m expecting cash cubes and dollar bills with “United Struts of America” printed on them.

NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of May 6, 2016

Listening All Night and all day.

“Here” to entertain.

May the 6th be with you… eh, I guess it doesn’t work. Luckily, many of these new releases do work, including two major Country albums and a deeper dive into one singer’s current pop prescription. Here are this week’s new releases:

  • KEITH URBAN — Ripcord (iTunes)
    • You don’t see a lot of albums released after three radio singles nowadays, but Urban waited it out, and his album is now in stores. His current release at Country radio, “Wasted Time”, is just outside the top ten at the moment. That collaboration with Pitbull, co-produced by Nile Rodgers, is sure to be… interesting. Anyways, Urban’s set is likely to be the highest debut on next week’s Billboard 200, likely in the top five.
  • COLE SWINDELL — You Should Be Here (iTunes)
    • Last month, Swindell topped the Country airplay chart with the title song from his sophomore album. Now, he’s in the hunt for his next #1, perhaps with follow-up single “Middle Of A Memory”. You’ll find Dierks Bentley on one track, but most of the 14 cuts are sung by Swindell himself. Look for it to debut in the top ten (if it’s not top five.)
  • MIKE POSNER — At Night, Alone. (iTunes)
    • It was this week in 2010 that Posner’s breakthrough hit, “Cooler Than Me”, first entered the top 40 on CHR radio. Now, he has the biggest single of his career with a remix of “I Took A Pill In Ibiza”. Both that version, as mixed by a Norwegian duo named SeeB, and the original can be found on this album.
  • GOO GOO DOLLS — Boxes (iTunes)
    • Three decades after first forming, the Buffalo act is still going strong, recently reaching the top 20 on Hot AC radio with “So Alive”. They’ve had a nice run of top ten albums with their studio sets, and we’ll see if this can continue it.
  • More albums out this week: Andy Black‘s The Shadow Side (iTunes), Anohni‘s Hopelessness (iTunes), Cyndi Lauper‘s Detour (iTunes), Gregory Porter‘s Take Me To The Alley (iTunes), Holy White Hounds‘s Sparkle Sparkle (iTunes), KAYTRANADA‘s 99.9% (iTunes), Rooney‘s Washed Away (iTunes), Angry Birds (iTunes)
  • More EPs out this week: MUNA‘s Loudspeaker (iTunes), Vérité‘s Living (iTunes)

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

  • “Burn The Witch”, Radiohead (iTunes)
  • “Can’t Stop The Feeling”, Justin Timberlake (iTunes)
  • “Dark Necessities”, Red Hot Chili Peppers (iTunes)
  • “Darker Than Dawn”, Cobi (iTunes)
  • “Fragile”, Prince Fox featuring Hailee Steinfeld (iTunes)
  • “Grass Ain’t Greener”, Chris Brown (iTunes)
  • “Happy”, Annabel Jones (iTunes)
  • “Hotter Than Hell”, Dua Lipa (iTunes)
  • “Into You”, Ariana Grande (iTunes)
  • “In Common”, Alicia Keys (iTunes)
  • “Me Too”, Meghan Trainor (iTunes)
  • “Take That”, CRUISR (iTunes)
  • “Talk Too Much”, COIN (iTunes)
  • “What Is And What Should Never Be”, Train (iTunes)
  • “Write On Me”, Fifth Harmony (iTunes)
  • “You And Me”, Marc E. Bassy featuring G-Eazy (iTunes)

We’ll see you next week for new releases from Jennifer NettlesKygoMeghan Trainor and more.

Chart Notes:

  • We have a new song at the top this week, and it’s a fun one. “Work This Body” becomes another chart-topper on my list for Walk The Moon, the third single off their album Talking Is Hard.  The Ohio act becomes the first band to score three #1 singles from one album on my top 40 since fun. pulled off the trick in 2013. The other two were “Shut Up And Dance” and “Different Colors” in 2014 and 2015, respectively.
  • Last year, Conrad Sewell got as high at #9 with his first chart single, “Hold Me Up”. Now, the recent birthday boy is back in the countdown with his follow-up single, which takes the title of Highest Debut. In at #39, “Remind Me” comes from the EP titled All I Know, which landed in the top ten in his native Australia. (Unfortunately, it didn’t do nearly as well here.)
  • In 2013, The Summer Set stalled just under the top 50 at pop radio with the song “Boomerang”. They also performed at the iHeartRadio Music Festival that year. They’ll be trying for better with their latest single, “Missin’ You”, new at #40. It’s the first radio release from Stories For Monday, which came out on Friday. It goes for adds on April 19.
