RADIO REPORT: POP! Goes The Picks (July 2015) (Part One)

It’s time once again to analyze the airwaves and find out if your favorite new singles will be lighting up the national charts during the month. Which tracks will climb to the top and which ones will hit a stop? Here’s a small selection of new songs being serviced in July on the CHR and Hot AC formats in the first part of this month’s Radio Report:

CHR (*) and HOT AC (**)

Demi Lovato
DEMI LOVATO – “Cool For The Summer” (July 7) (*)
Label: Safehouse/Island/Republic/Hollywood
We have a number of singers on the chart at the moment that are (or were) associated with the Walt Disney family, as Lovato has a partnership with both her longtime label and a new home that was set by her manager, Phil McIntyre. “Cool” is a slick single for the season that was co-written and produced by Max Martin. Fun and fresh, it’s bound to be a big hit in her catalog. Soak it all up.

Afrojack
AFROJACK featuring MIKE TAYLOR – “SummerThing!” (July 14) (*)
Label: Def Jam
Dutch DJ/producer Nick van de Wall stands a very tall 6′ 10″, and his last main-credited single to reach this particular chart, “Ten Feet Tall”, propelled him to new heights when it peaked at #19 last year. Now, he’s throwing his hat into the ring with a “summer” title that could face some competition from Lovato’s new song. However, he and newcomer Taylor are ready for some radio rays.

Alessia Cara
ALESSIA CARA – “Here” (July 14) (*)
Label: Def Jam/EP Entertainment
Newcomer Cara, born and raised in the Toronto area, is poised to see some huge numbers later this year as her single develops at radio across several formats. (It is also building at Rhythmic and Urban radio at the moment.) Spotify has been one of the driving forces behind its success, having accumulated millions of streams before ever being serviced. She and her song are “Here” to stay.

Avicii
AVICII (uncredited vocal by SIMON ALDRED) – “Waiting For Love” (July 14) (*)
Label: PRMD/Island/Republic
Late last year, the Swedish DJ/producer released an EP called The Days / Nights, which featured two cuts that were either pulled (“The Days”) or tanked (“The Nights”) when released to radio despite positive streaming numbers. The latest attempt to launch a new album titled Stories is this single, already a #1 in Austria, Norway and his native Sweden. Let’s hope U.S. radio remembers it.

Little Mix
LITTLE MIX – “Black Magic” (July 14) (*)
Label: Syco/Columbia
The former The X Factor winners from the U.K. have been very successful across the pond and on the Billboard 200, where their two studio albums thus far have both debuted in the top ten, but the quartet has yet to receive a big pop radio hit here. “Wings” is still their highest charting cut, peaking at #24 on the format in 2013. Still, this pop potion may cast a spell on more programmers.

Travie McCcoy
TRAVIE MCCOY featuring SIA – “Golden” (July 14) (*)
Label: Fueled By Ramen/Atlantic
After McCoy’s “Rough Water” swam up to #20 in late 2013, things have been, well, rough for the performer at pop radio. After a second single failed to chart, two of his features stalled in the 40’s earlier this year. Luckily, things are shining brighter for the 33-year-old now that he’s teamed up with the red hot Australian singer/songwriter. It could be a fall favorite for fans and radio alike.

Icona Pop
ICONA POP – “Emergency” (July 21) (*)
Label: Big Beat/Atlantic
It felt like you couldn’t escape this duo’s “I Love It” in the spring and summer of 2013 as it slowly climbed up to a peak of #2 at the format. Though the two have managed a pair of charting singles since then, nothing’s come close to the love for “Love”. The latest single from them could ring the musical alarm, a solid dance sound sprinkled with an uncredited vocal from the great Erik Hassle.

Tove Lo
TOVE LO – “Timebomb” (July 28) (*)
Label: Island/Republic
The Queen of the Clouds has ruled over CHR radio since last year with the #1 “Habits (Stay High)” and a recent top five follow-up in “Talking Body”. Now, I suppose we’ll be talking about this third single, which has fans divided based on the reaction thus far. It may not be the most popular pick, but the tune will likely gain for some time given her momentum. Will it stay ticking or explode?

Chart Notes:

  • After three weeks at #1, Taylor Swift‘s “Blank Space” falls back to #3, and replacing it is Ed Sheeran‘s “Thinking Out Loud”, up 2-1. This is the second chart-topper for the 23-year-old English singer/songwriter, who spent a frame at #1 back in April 2012 with “The A Team”. It’s also his first #1 of the era: previous singles “Sing” and “Don’t” could only go as high as #2, the former for two weeks and the latter for one. All three can be found on X.
  • Looking to break into next week’s top ten are three tracks: “All About It” by Hoodie Allen and the aforementioned Ed Sheeran is up 13-11, while another collaboration, Clean Bandit and Jess Glynne‘s “Real Love”, advances up two from 14-12. Also, leaping 18-13 this week is “Honey, I’m Good” from Andy Grammer. Everyone except Allen has at least one top ten to their name, so we’ll see how the battle continues in seven days.
  • The week’s only debut comes from superstar Kelly Clarkson, bowing in at #32 with “Heartbeat Song”. It’s the first single to be taken from her forthcoming album Piece By Piece, due in March. After reaching the top ten on iTunes at the first part of the week, it’s fallen back some, but with strong radio data, it should see a nice debut on the Hot 100.

Chart Notes:

  • Three songs debut on this week’s top 40 and the highest is from newcomer Scott Helman, a singer/songwriter out of Toronto, Canada. “Bungalow” comes in at #38 and can be found on the EP Augusta, only available up north (as of now, at least.) The single is also approaching the top 20 on Alternative radio in Canada with some nice weekly gains.
  • Aussie rockers The Griswolds were on the chart a few months ago with “Beware The Dog”, which climbed to #9 in August and stayed there for four weeks. Their follow-up, “If You Wanna Stay”, debuts at #39 this week. Both tracks  are from their Be Impressive album. “Stay” goes to Alternative radio in the States in just under two weeks.
  • Finally, at #40, is Ellie Goulding with an instant impact single, “Love Me Like You Do”. It’s this year’s first song to debut from a film soundtrack, featured on the forthcoming set from Fifty Shades Of Grey, out next month. You may remember that “Fade Out Lines” by The Avener, down at #22, will also be heard during the movie.
  • Monday marks the debut of Kelly Clarkson‘s “Heartbeat Song” and it’s sure to be a winner. How will it rank on the top 40 next week? Can Madonna, Take That or Train also join the party? Come back on Sunday to find out!

Chart Notes:

  • Two songs are new to the top ten this week: singer/songwriter Mat Kearney climbs a healthy three spots from 11-8 with “Heartbeat”, the leadoff single from his new album, titled Just Kids. Kearney’s highest ranking release to date is “Nothing Left To Lose”, which spent two weeks at #2 in 2007. Taking the same jump of three positions, up from #13 to #10, is One Direction‘s “Night Changes”. It’s the second top ten hit from FOUR and follow-up to “Steal My Girl” (#7).
  • This week’s Highest Debut is the third top 40 hit from Taylor Swift‘s 1989 album, “Style”, at #36. Though it hasn’t officially been announced as the set’s newest single, the song is just below the top 50 on CHR radio and its total spins are over double what they were last week. (It should chart there soon.) Meanwhile, Swift also commands the #1 spot as “Blank Space” holds there for a second week, while “Shake It Off” falls to #26.
  • Following “Maps” and “Animals”, Maroon 5 is new to the top 40 at #39 with “Sugar”, the third single to be released from V. Several sugary titles have gone to #1 on the Hot 100, including 1963’s “Sugar Shack” by Jimmy Gilmer & The Fireballs, 1969’s “Sugar, Sugar” by The Archies and 1971’s “Brown Sugar” by The Rolling Stones. Could the California sextet go all the way as well? We’ll see.
  • The week’s final entry at #40 is the second charting song for the quartet called Smallpools. “Karaoke” comes from the band’s debut album, LOVETAP!, due on February 3. The group last climbed onto the chart in late 2013 and early 2014 with “Over & Over”, which was taken from a self-titled EP. It peaked at #17 for two weeks.

RADIO REPORT: POP! Goes The Picks (January 2015)

Happy New Year to all of the PGTC readers around the world! It’s time once again to search the airwaves and find out if your favorite songs will be lighting up the national charts in 2015. What singles will climb to the top and which ones will hit a stop? Here are some of the singles being serviced in January on the AAA, Alternative, CHR and Hot AC formats in this month’s Radio Report:

CHR (*) and HOT AC (**)

Avicii and RAS
AVICII (featuring RAS) – “The Nights” (January 6) (*)
Label: Island/Republic
It was “The Days” that looked CHR-bound a few months ago, but that was abruptly pulled from the schedule. Maybe the change in time will change up the airwaves this spring. The Swedish DJ/producer’s latest single is already selling well on digital outlets like iTunes with a small amount of airplay thus far. Sure, this song is no “Wake Me Up!”, but hey, what is?

Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding
CALVIN HARRIS featuring ELLIE GOULDING – “Outside” (January 13) (*)
Label: Columbia
Some say that lightning doesn’t strike twice, but Harris and Goulding are looking to prove that theory wrong. Two years ago, the Scottish DJ/producer and English chanteuse collaborated on “I Need Your Love”, climbing up into the top 5 on CHR radio late in the summer. This second pairing, a top ten single across the globe last year, has big potential here too.

Nicki Minaj and Skylar Grey
NICKI MINAJ featuring SKYLAR GREY – “Bed Of Lies” (January 13) (*)
Label: YMCMB/Republic
Though Urban radio has fully embraced Minaj’s latest era, The Pinkprint, programmers at pop radio haven’t warmed up to the new music. Even “Anaconda”, a big digital hit with an eye-popping music video to boot, missed the top 20 and fell sharply. “Bed” has been another strong streamer, but with CHR’s sleeping on prior releases, the dream is a difficult one.

Tove Lo
TOVE LO – “Talking Body” (January 20) (*)
Label: Island/Republic
If she’s gotta stay high, then this single could be the one to take her back to the top. “Talking” is the follow-up to “Habits (Stay High)”, which spent one week at #1 back in November, while parent album Queen Of The Clouds ascended the sky to #14 on the Billboard 200. Already playing on Hits 1 and other outlets, this “body” is exercising some musical muscle.

Olly Murs and Travie McCoy
OLLY MURS featuring TRAVIE MCCOY – “Wrapped Up” (January 27) (*)
Label: Columbia
This hit collaboration recently wrapped itself around the top 5 on the Singles Chart in the United Kingdom, entering the survey at #3. That region is also where it currently sits on my personal chart. (We’ll know shortly if “Wrapped” matches that high point.) Murs hasn’t been as consistent on this side of the world, but I’m certainly rooting for this to break here.

Rixton
RIXTON – “Hotel Ceiling” (mid-to-late January – TBD) (*)
Label: School Boy/Giant Little Man/Mad Love/Interscope
Last year, the English group went top ten on the CHR chart with “Me And My Broken Heart”, but their momentum came to a halt when followup “Wait On Me” stalled in the 30’s last fall. Despite their debut album being pushed back to March, the group is charging ahead with this cut and could be spinning on the air soon. We’ll see when they check into the chart.

ALTERNATIVE (*) and AAA (**)

Milky Chance
MILKY CHANCE – “Flashed Junk Mind” (January 6) (* + **)
Label: Republic
Clemens Rehbein and Philipp Dausch have stolen more than a few dances recently, but the two German musicians aren’t looking for just one twirl at the top of the charts. They have more on their “Mind”. The second release to be issued from Sadnecessary fits the same folk-driven route as their international winner, but it has not ranked nearly as well overseas.

Brandi Carlile
BRANDI CARLILE – “Wherever Is Your Heart” (January 13) (**)
Label: ATO
After four albums with Columbia Records, including a big breakout with 2007’s The Story, singer and songwriter Carlile joins ATO for her latest offering, The Firewatcher’s Daughter. Having been a consistent presence on the AAA scene for years, including two charted singles from her last album, radio is ready for a new song and this tune does not disappoint.

Vance Joy
VANCE JOY, “Mess Is Mine” (January 13) (*+ **)
Label: F-Stop/Atlantic
The Australian singer/songwriter born James Keogh got swept up in a “Riptide” in the chart waters they call Alternative radio, spending five weeks at the top over the summer. The song is now crossing over to Hot AC and CHR outlets, but in the meantime, his second single jumps onto the format that crowned his top tune. The song is off to a nice start thus far.

Smallpools
SMALLPOOLS – “Karaoke” (January 20) (*)
Label: RCA
It’s been a while since this quartet has been on the charts; you may remember “Dreaming”, a minor entry on Alternative radio during the summer of 2013. After a cancelled single in “Over & Over”, the band will finally be releasing their debut album on February 3. It’s titled LOVETAP! and hopefully “Karaoke” will tap its way to some major adds before the date.

The Avener
THE AVENER – “Fade Out Lines” (January 20) (*)
Label: Republic
Already a huge hit across Europe, including #1 success in Austria and Germany, this track makes its way to the States as part of the upcoming 50 Shades Of Grey film. 27-year-old DJ and producer Tristan Casara is behind the song, which is a reworking of “The Fade Out Line” by Phoebe Killdeer & The Short Straws, first issued in late 2011. “Out” is definitely in.

The Griswolds
THE GRISWOLDS – “If You Wanna Stay” (January 27) (*)
Label: Wind-Up
These four Aussie rockers broke the top 20 last year with their single “Beware The Dog”, and between that and their last release, “Heart Of A Lion”, you’d think they would be opening a zoo. However, that is not the case as their latest single is breaking the trend of animal anthems, but it’s still worth a listen. Look for it to chart at the format in the next few weeks.

Madonna – Living For Love

Taylor Swift – Style
Train – Bulletproof Picasso

Chart Notes:

  • Scoring her second #1 from the album 1989, Taylor Swift advances 2-1 with “Blank Space”. “Shake It Off”, falling quickly down the chart at this point, spent two weeks at #1 earlier this year. Both singles also reached the summit of the CHR and Hot AC format surveys, as well as the Hot 100. Will she make it three in a row this era? With songs like “Bad Blood” and “Style” still selling well, it could be quite possible.
  • New to this week’s top ten is “27” from Passenger, up 12-10 in its eleventh week on the chart. His latest song marks the third top ten single in a row from his album Whispers and his sixth overall since his debut in early 2013. Just for the record, singer and songwriter Mike Rosenberg is actually 30, but there are several 27-year-old musicians on the chart, including Matt Simons and Robin Schulz.
  • After moving 39-34 last week, Olly Murs and Demi Lovato take the title of Biggest Mover for a second week in a row. Unfortunately, it’s yet another soft week as they climb up to #28, a gain of six notches. The song remains in the top 5 on the Singles Chart in the United Kingdom. (Look for some bigger weekly gains next month.)
  • The only debut on this week’s top 40 belongs to the German duo Milky Chance. They’re new at #40 with “Flashed Junk Mind”, their followup to “Stolen Dance”. That song spent two weeks at #9 last summer. The two men, Clemens Rehbein and Philipp Dausch, will be touring the U.S. again during the spring.

SINGLE PREMIERE: Travie McCoy featuring Jason Mraz – “Rough Water” (+ Lyrics)

"Water" you waiting for?

“Water” you waiting for?

Here’s a curious collaboration from two guys I wouldn’t have expected a song together from: Travie McCoy and Jason Mraz. This is McCoy’s first solo single in two years (after a handful of Gym Class Heroes releases in later 2011 and into 2012) and the first new material we’ve heard from Mraz since last year’s Love Is A Four Letter Word. It will be on iTunes the following day. Enjoy!

Listen to the premiere of “Rough Water”.

“ROUGH WATER”

McCoy Mraz

[Chorus]
Hey oh, never let go of me (Yeah)
Hold tight, it’s gonna get hard to breathe (Hold tight, baby)
Never never let you drown (never), even if we’re going down (Going down)
Hey oh, never let go of me
When I’m sinking (It’s Travie, let’s go)

[Verse 1]
Loose lips sink ships, that’s what someone told me
But this boat will stay afloat as long as you hold me
We’ve been through rough water in the times when it was tougher
But the fact I came back to remind you I love ya
And if that’s not enough, well I can one-up ya
I pinky promise, touch thumbs I never make you suffer
And all I ask in return is some reciprication
I’ll be your oxygen when you’re running out of patience

[Bridge]
So take a deep breath and hold it tight
My heart is yours just reassure me that you’ll hold it right
Don’t be offended, I’m just the cautious type
To always be around and hold you down and never under, like

[Chorus]
Hey oh, never let go of me (Never let go)
Hold tight, it’s gonna get hard to breathe (Hold tight, hold tight)
Never never let you drown (never), even if we’re going down (Going down)
Hey oh, never let go of me
When I’m sinking

[Post-Chorus x2]
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

[Verse 2]
This is my message in a bottle, I hope that you receive it
If it washes up at your feet, then open it and read it (read it)
To whom it may concern, insert your name here (yeah)
It’s destiny that we were both born in the same year
Three months apart, but on the same sphere
Staring at the sun, inhaling the same air
This type of love we got, they’ll never get it
I’ll be the Leo DiCaprio to your Kate Winslet
Sometimes I panic but I never take it for granted
I’ll hold you ‘til my lips turn blue like Jack in Titanic
And if I lose my grip, then just promise me this
You’ll keep my love in a locket and always rock it, like

[Chorus]
Hey oh, never let go of me (Never let go, never let go)
Hold tight, it’s gonna get hard to breathe (Hold tight mama, hold tight)
Never never let you drown (never), even if we’re going down (Going down)
Hey oh, never let go of me
When I’m sinking

[Post-Chorus x2]
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

[Middle 8]
There’s times where like
We find it hard
To hold on to something
That was never meant to be held onto
But you let it go
If it comes back it was meant to be
If not, just let it be
C’mon

[Chorus]
Hey oh, never let go of me (Never let go, never let go)
Hold tight, it’s gonna get hard to breathe (Hold tight mama, hold tight)
Never never let you drown (never), even if we’re going down (Going down)
Hey oh, never let go of me
When I’m sinking

[Post-Chorus x2]
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
