TURN IT UP TUESDAY: What’s New In Stores This Week (February 10)

These sounds are steamy.

These sounds are steamy.

Yes, the GRAMMY season is officially over for now, and while you may be catching up on music from some of last night’s big winners, there’s always more new music to be discovered. Here are the albums and singles that are new in stores for the week of February 10:

  • The biggest of this week’s new releases is the all-star soundtrack from the forthcoming Fifty Shades Of Grey film, new in theaters later this week. The two big singles from it so far are Ellie Goulding‘s “Love Me Like You Do”, moving up the CHR and Hot AC radio lists, and The Weeknd‘s “Earned It” is climbing at both Rhythm and Urban radio. It’s not clear right now whether the set will top any of the more notable GRAMMY winners like Beck or Sam Smith, but the weekend box office numbers could boost it well. (iTunes)
  • Led by the single “Adiós”, a recent top ten hit on the Latin charts, popular Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin returns with A Quien Quiera Escuchar (English: To Those Who Want To Listen). It’s his first album in four years. Will it debut in the top five like his last outing? We’ll see soon. (iTunes)
  • Other releases out this week include: Father John Misty‘s I Love You, Honeybear (iTunes), Foy Vance‘s Live At Bangor Alley (iTunes), JD McPherson‘s Let The Good Times Roll (iTunes), Love And Theft‘s Whiskey On My Breath (iTunes), Michelle Chamuel‘s Face The Fire (iTunes), Rumer‘s Into Colour (iTunes), Sisqo‘s Last Dragon (iTunes) and the deluxe edition of St. Vincent‘s St. Vincent (iTunes).

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

  • “Anyway”, new from the English band New Motion. (iTunes)
  • “Don’t Wanna Fight”, new from Alabama Shakes. (iTunes)
  • “Goodbye”, the first single from the mysterious Nashville singer/songwriter Who Is Fancy. (iTunes)
  • “Hold On Tight”, “Iconic” and “Joan Of Arc”, three pre-release tracks from Madonna. (iTunes)
  • “Marvin Gaye”, a single from newcomer Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor. (iTunes)
  • “Nobody Love”, new from singer Tori Kelly. (iTunes)
  • “Whistle (While You Work It)”, the latest single from Katy Tiz. (iTunes)

Next week, the sophomore album from Las Vegas rockers Imagine Dragons, titled Smoke + Mirrors, will likely debut atop the Billboard 200. Who else gets in on the action? A full preview is coming in seven!

ADAM’S TOP 40 FLASHBACK: February 25, 2001

Relationships on the record.

Relationships on the record.

Welcome back for another edition of Adam’s Top 40 Flashback! Every Saturday, the day before my new top 40 goes up for the week, I’ll be featuring a past countdown straight from chart files of Adam’s Top 40. They’re all here — the hit songs, the songs that flopped, and the songs that may be a little embarrassing to reflect on. Fifth grade was the year that I won a second place prize in the Projects Fair and found out what Radio & Records was, one of the beginnings on my musical journey. Here’s a look at my top 40 from February 25, 2001:

Debuts:
40. BLACK EYED PEAS featuring MACY GRAY, “Request Line”
38. ASHLEY BALLARD, “Hottie”
37. WILD ORCHID, “Stuttering (Don’t Say)”
34. DREAM, “This Is Me”

Biggest Mover:
DESTINY’S CHILD, “Survivor” (33-21) (12 spots)

10. MYA, “Free”
“Case Of The Ex” may have given this performer a big crossover hit in later 2000, but it was this followup to it that I always preferred, especially the radio remix which gave it a bit of disco breakdown in the middle of it. It didn’t fare as well nationally, but she got back into the groove that summer on a #1 for five weeks on my chart, “Lady Marmalade”.

09. JENNIFER LOPEZ, “Love Don’t Cost A Thing”
Don’t be fooled by the rocks (or chart position) that she’s got; the dancing diva was hot stuff. During the first month of 2001, Lopez became the only act to have the #1 album (J.Lo) and appear in the #1 film (The Wedding Planner) in the U.S. during a given week. That’s big business. Further singles “Play” and “Ain’t It Funny” would also crack my top 5.

08. BACKSTREET BOYS, “The Call”
They dialed and dialed, got a few answering machines along the way, but still managed to hit #1 for two weeks in early 2001. It was the second single from Black & Blue following “Shape Of My Heart”. You may remember that it received a remix by The Neptunes, which got some play. Their career came to a low battery warning for me soon afterwards.

07. DIDO, “Thankyou”
When Eminem‘s “Stan” became a mid-charting single on both the pop radio chart and my own survey in late 2000, it was the sung hook by this singer that eventually outranked it. Originally featured on the soundtrack to 1998’s Sliding Doors, it had an unusually long run to a prominent chart peak, but one that landed her a handful of entries on my list.

06. VERTICAL HORIZON, “Best I Ever Had (Grey Sky Morning)”
The lead singer of this trio attended the same high school that I did, Bancroft School in Worcester, MA. Fun fact of the day, I suppose. That would be Matt Scannell, who lived in MA for a time. His band’s third consecutive top ten hit on my survey would be the last from their 1999 Everything You Want album. They’re an independent act nowadays.

05. CRAZY TOWN, “Butterfly”
Formed in 1995, the California group rapped their way to a hit on both the Alternative and CHR radio surveys. It also led the Hot 100 for two non-consecutive frames. Leader Shifty Shellshock charted with two solo songs after the band’s sole entry: “Starry Eyed Surprise”, a 2002 feature with DJ Paul Oakenfold, and “Slide Along Side” in 2004.

04. S CLUB 7, “Never Had A Dream Come True”
There ain’t no charting like an S Club charting, at least in my opinion. “Dream” became the septet’s biggest single to hit my chart and their last. It spent three weeks at #1. A followup, “Don’t Stop Movin'”, was planned for a radio servicing, but postponed after the events of 9/11. They split in 2003, but rumors of a full reunion have been around for years.

03. AEROSMITH, “Jaded”
The boys from Boston were about take the reins on my chart for a week, but on this particular survey, they were up to #3. Parent album Just Push Play was certified Platinum thanks to the song’s success. Followup “Fly Away From Here” just missed my top ten. They last charted in 2012 with the ballad “What Could Have Been Love”, which rose to #12.

02. RICKY MARTIN & CHRISTINA AGUILERA, “Nobody Wants To Be Lonely”
Originally just a solo song by Martin on Sound Loaded, Aguilera was added on for its single release. This was Martin’s penultimate top ten single on my chart; he also hit with “Loaded” a few months later during a quick chart run. Aguilera reached my top ten earlier this year on a duet with duo A Great Big World, “Say Something”, which climbed to #2.

01. SHAGGY featuring RAYVON, “Angel”
Call it a divine ditty of sorts. It went to #7 on the Hot 100 for Merrilee Rush in 1968 and then up to #4 in 1981 for Juice Newton. The song was “Angel Of The Morning”, and of course, it’s been recorded plenty more times beyond these two hit versions. Well, the Jamaican rapper and Barbadian singer flipped it up, interpolated it into a chorus, and gave us the song that was #1 on my chart this week in 2001 for its last of three weeks. It’s a classic that I still love now.

ADAM’S TOP 40 FLASHBACK: November 26, 2000

It wasn't them... or was it?

It wasn’t them… or was it?

Welcome back for another edition of Adam’s Top 40 Flashback! Every Saturday, the day before my new top 40 goes up for the week, I’ll be featuring a past countdown straight from chart files of Adam’s Top 40. They’re all here — the hit songs, the songs that flopped, and the songs that may be a little embarrassing to reflect on. We’re going way back to fifth grade for this countdown, and yes, I really shouldn’t have been listening to some of these songs at age ten. Here’s a look at my top 40 from November 26, 2000:

Debuts:
40. PINK, “You Make Me Sick”
39. CHRISTINA AGUILERA, “Christmas Time”
36. MYA, “Free”

Biggest Mover(s):
JENNIFER LOPEZ, “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” (34-20) (14 spots)

10. USHER, “Pop Ya Collar”
It’s the song that sprung a leak and Napster was the culprit. After its surprise release via the service, “Collar” was serviced to U.S. radio in October and was off to a decent start, but was pulled in late November after parent album All About U was shelved and mixed reaction about his new pop sound. A 2001 release in several European countries, like Belgium and the U.K., landed him another top five hit.

09. NINE DAYS, “If I Am”
Best known for their big hit from earlier that year, “Absolutely (Story Of A Girl)”, this was the followup to it and charted on a few radio formats in the lower regions. Their album, The Madding Crowd, was certified Platinum. After a shelved second album with 550 Music (which was eventually released digitally), the band’s recorded on and off together independently, last putting out an EP earlier this year.

08. SPICE GIRLS, “Holler”
Released over two years after the departure of Geri Halliwell, album Forever marked the first and only full-length album that the girls released as a quartet. It went top 40 in the U.S., but was never certified. The single only received minor airplay here and missed the Hot 100. However, it was released in a double a-side single with “Let Love Find A Way” in their native U.K., marking their final #1 hit.

07. VITAMIN C, “The Itch”
The girl behind “Smile” and “Graduation (Friends Forever)” was scratching up the chart again. It was her last top ten on here, which was followed by “As Long As You’re Loving Me”, a minor hit. Album More was delayed until January and tanked given the post-Q4 market and singles underperforming. The singer now goes by her birth name, Colleen Fitzpatrick, today the VP of Music at Nickelodeon.

06. NELLY FURTADO, “I’m Like A Bird”
As you can tell, I was way early on this first single from the Canadian songstress. Furtado’s song debuted on the radio here in September and I was on it almost right away. Though it wouldn’t peak on the airplay charts until the summer of 2001, it was a massive hit across the globe, including a #1 peak in her native country. She’s had her ups and downs when it comes to sales and radio, but is still making music.

05. MIKAILA, “So In Love With Two”
The singer from Edmond, OK was just 13 when she entered my chart and the music industry on Island Records with her debut single. Followup “It’s All Up To You” was playlisted on a few stations with the release of her self-titled album in the spring of 2001, but both items tanked and the singer was dropped. She hasn’t charted since and ranks as one of the biggest one-hit wonders in my chart’s history.

04. RICKY MARTIN, “She Bangs”
With a crash, boom and a bang, the Latin heartthrob was topping the charts, including for four weeks on my own top 40. “Bangs” led Martin’s Sound Loaded album to debut at #4 on the Billboard 200. The song’s become a bit of a joke today, especially after an audition by American Idol contestant William Hung during the show’s third season in 2004, but the song is still good fun and a great throwback.

03. SHAGGY featuring RIKROK, “It Wasn’t Me”
Sometimes it’s wise to take the advice of a friend. This reggae song wasn’t intended to be a single, but after it was tested by a Hawaiian DJ, it became a smash, topping the Hot 100 for two weeks in February. This would be RikRok‘s only time ranking in my top 40; Shaggy would last chart in 2002 with the minor “Strength Of A Woman”, but continues to record original material that still charts overseas.

02. BRITNEY SPEARS, “Stronger”
Don’t you just remember her dancing with the chair in the music video? This self-empowerment anthem has been a favorite in her repertoire for some time now. It was the third consecutive top two hit from the Oops!… I Did It Again era on my chart and the last; “Don’t Let Me Be The Last To Know”, the followup, would stall out just below the top ten. Spears releases her latest album, Britney Jean, next week.

01. DESTINY’S CHILD, “Independent Women, Part One”
Throw your hands up at them! What a jam this song was. Featured on the soundtrack to Charlie’s Angels, starring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu, “Women” was one of the biggest hits of the group’s career, topping the Hot 100 for eleven weeks in 2000-2001, and would be followed by the Survivor era, which also stormed the charts in 2001. The trio last made my chart in 2004 with “Lose My Breath”. They most recently reunited for a one-off performance at Beyoncé‘s Super Bowl halftime show early last year.

TOP TEN: The Voices Within

You want a peace of this?

You want a peace of this?

In the past few days, there have been a few news stories out there about both the domestic and international versions of The Voice, the singing competition in which four coaches/judges rely on just a contestant’s voice in order to persuade them to turn their chair around and fight to add them onto their team. In the United Kingdom, singers Danny O’Donoghue of The Script and Jessie J are exiting the show, while Ricky Wilson of the Kaiser Chiefs and Kylie Minogue will be their replacements. In the United States, original judges Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera are returning to the panel, leaving fill-ins Shakira and Usher out of a chair this season.

With all that shifting around, I thought I would do the same and compile another top ten list of the acts with the most top 40 singles to make my personal chart who have also coached on the show, whether here in the U.S. or abroad. In fact, 18 of them, both current or former, have managed at least one charting single. Can you guess which of them has the biggest voice of them all, at least on my survey? Check it all out below… but turn your chair around to face your computer, this isn’t a singing competition.

10. SHAKIRA (5)
Her hips don’t lie and neither do her chart stats. First a star in the Spanish-speaking world, she set her sights on the English market with 2001’s Laundry Service. Her first single to make it on remains her highest peaking release, “Whenever Wherever”. It went to #2 for two weeks. Although she’s had some massive worldwide hits since then, the Columbian singer hasn’t ranked on my top 40 since early 2006.

09. APL.DE.AP (6)
The first season of The Voice of the Philippines is currently underway, and Apl.De.Ap is the only judge from that version to appear on here. He’s one of two members of the Black Eyed Peas on the list, the other being will.i.am further up. The group’s biggest entry to date, 2003’s “Where Is The Love?”, went to #4 for a week and garnered a lot of airplay. The song features Justin Timberlake on the chorus.

08. JOEL MADDEN (6)
Madden’s been a judge for two years on Australia’s version of The Voice. As a member of pop-punk quartet Good Charlotte, Madden made my top 40 six times in the past decade or so. One single went to #1, “Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous”, which spent four weeks there in 2003. Ah, the days of middle school. They last made my chart in the fall of 2010 and are in the process of recording once again.

07. USHER (7)
He’s a actor, dancer and a singer and last season, he filled in on the U.S. edition of The Voice. Though he first charted in 2000 with a single that was pulled from radio, his biggest success so far on my chart is “Yeah!”, featuring Lil’ Jon and Ludacris. His signature song rose to #5 in 2004. Usher largely missed my chart after the Confessions era, though he still pops up now and again with a song that I enjoy.

06. WILL.I.AM (7)
Back at #9 was this guy’s partner-in-crime from the Black Eyed Peas; now, will.i.am appears. His only solo single to make my top 40, in which he’s a featured performer, ended up being his lone #1 so far: “Hall Of Fame”, as done by The Script. It occupied the spot for four weeks last year. Since then, he released a solo album, #willpower, but nothing from it has even come remotely close to making my chart.

05. DANNY O’DONOGHUE (7)
O’Donoghue was on the U.K. edition of The Voice for two seasons before leaving this Spring. He first made the top 40 in the group MyTown, but he is primarily known as the leader of The Script, who have been massive on my chart since 2009. Of their seven charting songs, four went to #1, including “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved” for eight weeks. They’re expected to release a fourth album early next year.

04. RICKY MARTIN (8)
The former Menudo singer and Latin heartthrob has been enjoying his time as a judge on The Voice in Australia. His self-titled debut English album broke him in a big way, but it was his followup release, Sound Loaded, that delivered his biggest hit thus far: “She Bangs”. It totaled four weeks at the top in 2000. Martin hasn’t been on since 2001, but a recent single, “Come With Me”, came out earlier this year.

03. KYLIE MINOGUE (15)
She’s a legend and she’ll be bringing the heat to the judging panel on The Voice in the U.K. in 2014 during the show’s third season. Though Minogue’s been hitting the charts since the late 80’s over in Europe, her first single to reach my top 40 was a #1 for five weeks, 2002’s “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head”. 2004’s “Red Blooded Woman” also topped my list for three weeks. The singer last charted earlier this year.

02. ADAM LEVINE (17)
He’s been with the U.S. version of The Voice since its beginning, including this upcoming season, but you also know him as the leader of Maroon 5. The band has now been atop my chart six times, including the nine week “This Love” in 2004 and their biggest, 2007’s “Makes Me Wonder”, which spent eleven big weeks there. All in all, they’ve had 17 top 40 entries, one of the largest sums for a band to my chart.

01. CHRISTINA AGUILERA (20)
She’s got some big pipes and a big stack of hits too, and thus, Christina Aguilera glides into the #1 spot on my list. She had my very first #1 back in September 1999 with “Genie In A Bottle” and would later charge the chart summit with “What A Girl Wants”, “Come On Over Baby (All I Want Is You)”, “Lady Marmalade” (with Lil’ Kim, Mya and Pink), “Beautiful” and “Moves Like Jagger” (with Maroon 5).
