Here’s the weekly radio review of chart action on mainstream stations. I post this review every Monday morning. Enjoy.
On Rhythmic radio: J. Cole’s new single “Crooked Smile” has climbed into the Top 25, while Major Lazer f/ Bruno Mars & Tyga “Bubble Butt” enters the Top 20. After ten weeks, Daft Punk “Get Lucky” finally begins to rise in the Top 10 (very surprising it’s moved so slowly, the fan fare and acclaim is very big).
On Urban Adult Contemporary: Raheem Devaughn “Love Connection,” Charlie Wilson “Turn Off The Lights” and Tamar Braxton “The One” are all gaining spins, set to jump into the Top 10 next week. John Legend “Who Do We Think We Are” and TGT “Sex Never Felt Better” are both close to No. 15, not cracking the Top 10.
On Urban radio: Hustle Gang f/ T.I., B.O.B., Kendrick Lamar “Memories Back Then” cracks the Top 25. After seven weeks, Kelly Rowland’s “Dirty Laundry” moves into the Top 15. Rocko’s “U.E.O.N.O.” moves up to No. 9.
Top 3 songs on Rhythmic radio: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis f/ Ray Dalton “Can’t Hold Us,” Justin Timberlake “Mirrors,” and a new number one, Robin Thicke f/ Pharrell & T.I. “Blurred Lines.”
Top 3 songs on Urban AC radio: Fantasia “Lose To Win,” Miguel “Adorn,” and the new number one is Alicia Keys f/ Maxwell “Fire We Make.”
Top 3 songs on Urban radio: Lil Wayne f/ 2 Chainz “Rich As F**k,” J. Cole f/ Miguel “Power Trip,” and the new number one is Ciara “Body Party.”
