RECORD REWIND 2020: PGTC Picks, Week Eleven

Sunday afternoon means it’s time for the Record Rewind, highlighting the top new tracks that you might’ve missed during the work week, all from my favorite small label and independent acts out there. If it’s on the site, it’s something that you need to check out!

Across the PGTC SoundCloud page and my playlists on Spotify, these stuck out as my favorite independent songs of the week…
_____

PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
DYLAN DUNLAP – “Who Would Have Thought” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance

Last November, Dunlap was noted on an edition of the Rewind with another fantastic song, “If That’s Alright”. His new track, which was self-written with production by Los Angeles-based songwriter/producer Ben Zelico, is a great soft pop radio single to check out.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
SHOFFY featuring ANNA CLENDENING – “Bedhead” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Second appearance / (Clendening is signed to EastWest Records)

After appearing on last week’s report with the Sabrina Carpenter-assisted “Tricky”, Shoffy is back on this week’s log with a song that features another singer who has appeared on our Friday Faves updates, Anna Clendening. It’s another great release from his album.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
BOY IN SPACE – “U N Eye”
DAVE BARNES – “Love Somebody”
GAYLE – “Z”
PHANGS – “Okay With That”

Though Carpenter has already managed to chart a handful of moderately successful singles on the Top 40 list, you might remember that Shoffy narrowly missed the top 40 last July with “Cool Again”, peaking at #41. Luckily, the cool factor on this track is still high.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 19, 2019)

Welcome to Radio Active, a Sunday evening report from POP! Goes The Charts that gets to the chart of the matter: all the highlights from the CHR/Top 40 chart, as published by Mediabase 24/7 and Mediabase Research. “Stranger” things are happening here on the pop airwaves as we breeze through the middle of May, so let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

“DANCING” ON THE CEILING: After reaching the top of the Hot AC chart last week, Sam Smith and Normani climb from 2-1 on the Top 40 chart with “Dancing With A Stranger”. It’s Smith’s second #1 at the format and Normani’s second as a soloist, as she earned one chart-topper with the group Fifth Harmony. The collaboration hits the top in its 18th week in the top 40. Look for it to continue its run at the summit for at least a second week.

Looking towards her third #1 hit of the year, Halsey rockets in at #26 with her 11th top 40 single, “Nightmare”. One of those former chart-toppers, “Without Me”, falls below the top ten and is moved to recurrent status. The track “Summer Days” leaps from 41-36 on this week, earning Martin Garrix his fifth top 40 hit, Macklemore his tenth and Fall Out Boy‘s Patrick Stump his second as a solo artist. Stump’s prior solo appearance was with the Lupe Fiasco-assisted “This City”, which peaked at #25 in October 2011. The remaining two top 40 entries on the chart are by newcomers who have previously earned airplay at Rhythmic and Urban radio: “Ex” is up from 42-39 for Kiana Ledé, while “Look Back At It” launches from 45-40 for A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie. The latter title is at #1 on the Urban chart this week, moving up from #4, while it slips out of the top spot and down to #2 on the Rhythmic list.

Juice WRLD leads this week’s pack of top 50 debuts, coming in at #44 with “Hear Me Calling”. The track is approaching the top 20 on the Rhythmic chart and will likely become his second top 40 single here in the next week or so. At #47, “Kill This Love” marks the first single to reach the region for the K-pop act Blackpink, a female quartet based in Seoul. Singer and songwriter Shoffy also hits the chart with his first entry, “Cool Again”, which bows at #48. Finally, at #50, the recent U.K. hit called “Boasty” sneaks into the top 50 for Wiley, Sean Paul, Stefflon Don and Idris Elba. It’s the first entry at the format for both Wiley and Elba.
