    From HDD:

    Adele’s 21 holds at #1 for an astonishing 22nd week. It is the only album to be #1 so far this year. On the horizon, however, are new releases from Bruce Springsteen, One Direction and The Shins, all of which could possibly debut at #1. Interestingly, all of these releases are also from Adele’s label, Columbia Records. As a possible spoiler to an all-Columbia Q1, Universal’s Hunger Games soundtrack hits on 3/20 and will be a formidable challenger for the top spot. Here’s how it looks one week after the Grammys.

    Adele 21 (XL/Columbia) 275-300k
    Whitney Houston Greatest Hits (RCA) 175-200k
    *Tyga (Cash Money/Universal Republic) 70-80k
    Now 41 (Capitol/EMI) 55-60k
    *fun. (Fueled by Ramen) 55-60k
    Adele 19 (XL/Columbia) 35-40k
    Bodyguard soundtrack (RCA) 30-35k
    *Chiddy Bang (Virgin/EMI) 28-32k
    2012 Grammy Nominees (Universal Republic) 28-32k
    Van Halen (Interscope) 28-32k
    *Sleigh Bells (Mom + Pop) 25-28k
    Drake (YM/CM/Universal Republic) 25-28k
    Rihanna (Def Jam/IDJ) 21-24k
    Gotye (Fairfax/Universal Republic) 17-20k

    Yeah baby, Adam may be hanging on by his fingernails but his single BTIKM is still hanging on. As of this morning he had 548 spins across 50 stations. He moved up  partly on the basis of the two songs above him dropping but he has also increased his spins (I think this is his highest spin count but I’m only going on memory, I don’t write these things down) and stations playing the song. The increase in Audience impressions is especially nice to see. Also he is still bouncing around on the iTunes now at 665.

    I really like this interview http://www.nme.com/blog/index.php?blog=148&title=adam_lambert_on_queen_qaamp_a&more=1&c=1&tb=1&pb=1

    Great increase in spins for Adam! Nice to see him break the top 30 now! Woo Hoo. The little singel that could. lol

    Congrats to KC for her n°1 on Canadian HAC, shouldn’t be the last one for this track on radio.

    Glad to see all three updates on Country, even tough Scotty lost spins he’s gained AI.

    BTIKM has a very good update, we’ll have to wait and see wheter it’s a one-off or the beginning of a trend.

    Chris Rene’s YOUNG HOMIE release date has been pushed back to 3/20 according to HDD and THR. The official adds date stays the same (2/28), per HDD. He confirmed the itunes release date in a radio interview with Z90.3 in San Diego yesterday. Not sure if the video release date remains the same (2/28).

    Another good week for the Country trio hoping Casey can make T20 and Lauren T30 in the next month.  Not sure what to hope for for Scotty I guess I lean towards a new song next month before the ACM’s award show.

     That is a great interview, just the right amount of British snark, lol. Interesting about the “bottling” but Adam will be fine. I still think there will be a practice gig with Adam in Moscow and I really looking forward to that too.

    It still looks like RCA is stepping up the internet based promotion of BTIKM, and another Hot AC station tweeted about having Adam live in the studio, so RCA isn’t backing off of the song.  Maybe they still believe that it can be a legitimate hit on Hot AC, even though it only received one add last week.  I don’t know how they feel about the chances of the song doing well on pop radio, especially since they have been fighting hard for every Hot AC spin.

  • mmb

    Btikm updates improved because it got a bunch of new spinners this week. Mostly cumulus hac stations but also wwfs in nyc and kbig in la. I guess they will continue to work the song for a while.

    Carrie’s “Good Girl” is now #6 over-all on iTunes.  This is also its first day of airplay.

    Seriously?  Is no one else amazed by this?  I’ve been following Carrie’s iTunes movements for years and this is the fastest I’ve seen one of her songs rise without a promotional event, i.e. Idol performance.  #6 over-all in less than 13 hours.  With no previous airplay and no tv appearances!

    KBIG played it five times last week.  I mentioned on Monday that that may be another sign that RCA was still pushing it.  

    Another question is, will this be the first single going into the album’s release, or are they pushing it in hopes that it will give Adam a presence on Hot AC, until they are ready to release a new single that will be out for a couple of months before the album.

    It makes sense.  Good Girl has a catchy beat.  I latched on to it when I first heard it. And I am not a huge Country music fan.

  • Valentin432

     The way it’s rocketing up the itunes ranking, Good Girl has a shot to go to the top altough We Are Young is a solid n°1 at the moment.

    I think it’s good RCA is trying to keep this song alive.  It’s expensive to switch singles & they’ve already invested quite a bit in the iTunes ads, video, etc.

    Since Trespassing does not have a drop date, they have time to drive this single up the HAC charts.  He is getting good publicity for Queen event and that ups his buz.  Once again, I will opine with no expertise at all. I think they should release a very pop friendly second single before the album drops.  One that is cutting edge and unique to generate excitment for album.  A debute on Idol would be nice.  In the mean time, happy they are pushing BTIKM.  I am liking it more the more I hear it.  If the video makes VH1 Countdown this weekend it should get an itune bounce.  It is different than what is shown and Adam looks super cute in it.

    Good Girl is a fun song with an immediate kick, so I think it will be a big hit.

    I’m in wait and see mode with BTIKM. I remain skeptical. **folds arms**

    Jean1010, I think I agree with everything you said

    Still think they will release an uptempo CHR song before the album drops; but I can’t even speculate on BTIKM anymore. Just a few days ago I was convinced RCA had pulled the plug. Now I just want to see how high it can go before they make the switch.

    I’m not surprised at the fast movement on iTunes. Carrie’s a big country star & many people have been waiting for new solo material from her for awhile.

    Most country acts do do as well with Itunes/digital downloads as Carrie does.  The only ones who come close are the acts who get crossover play on Pop stations.

  • Anonymous

    I’m not saying that country acts don’t do well when releasing on iTunes. I just think that since Carrie’s been on a break from new music I wouldn’t be surprised if she will be in the top 10 or even top 5 this week & even next week for digital tracks. I think it’s a really catchy song.

    It does help that she’s a country star releasing new material. If Phil Vassar or Joe Nichols release a new single, it wouldn’t reach the top 10 on iTunes even though both have had a good careers with multiple #1 hits.

    That’s fantastic that Carrie’s leaped up itunes with her new song. After listening to it though, I’m not surprised at all. I have nothing against country, it’s just not my thing, but I loved Good Girl. I think it’s got definite crossover potential.

    Carrie’s not the only one who sells well digitally in country, for example Jason Aldean has a double platinum single and 3 other singles close to double platinum, only one of them being a crossover hit.

  • Anonymous

    I said most, but even if we include Jason Aldean, I don’t think his numbers can match Carrie’s more than 18 million digital singles sold.

    Sigh, this not good news. It is obvious that the song is going nowhere. This is starting to feel  like Cook’s TLG revisited!

    Carrie Underwood has alway said she doesn’t like to use Twitter.  So I suspect her account may be managed by her handlers – as opposed to her on a regular basis.

    Carrie is one of the biggest digital seller for a country act.
    I think Lady A, The Band Perry (mainly IIDY) and probably Jason Aldean have sold more singles than her on the last era but I don’t know many acts that have sold more than her total, this side of Taylor Swift.

    Older country superstars like George Strait, Reba, Kenny Chesney, etc. don’t sell much (relatively) in the digital world and when they were younger acts, single sales were much lower.

    “ Although Kelly Clarkson falls 1-4 on the Hot 100 (although with top Airplay Gainer honors) with “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You),” the song takes over as her first No. 1 the Dance/Club Play Songs chart. That makes Clarkson the first artist ever to have topped the Hot 100 and each of Billboard’s Dance/Club Play Songs, Country Songs, Adult Contemporary and Adult Pop Songs charts. “

    Good Girl is up to #4 all genre at Itunes. I have no clue what its 3 day sales will wind up as for the week but there’s definitely some relief from the fan part of me seeing it do well right now.

    escape: Carrie Underwood has alway said she doesn’t like to use Twitter.  So I suspect her account may be managed by her handlers – as opposed to her on a regular basis.

    Carrie confirmed via Twitter and fan club blog that the account will be used both by her and by her team. She had been thinking about for a long time, though she recently posted at her fan club that she’d decided against it because she didn’t think she had thick enough skin. I guess her label/management convinced her to give it a try. According to her husband Mike’s welcome tweet he’s been trying to convince her to join too. And her former PA and good friend Matt tweeted he & Mike tried to talk her into it again around Christmastime too.

    I’m guessing she won’t read her mentions too much (or she’ll have somebody filter them for her) but hopefully she can tweet some cute or funny things sometimes.

    Haha! That seems like such a random assortment of charts but then again, it’s such a testament to Kelly’s versatility.

    I tweeted this too but I just want to say it makes me really happy seeing my girls Kelly, Carrie, and Adele in the t10 at Itunes. I’m mostly a country fan but I love great voices and it’s awesome seeing signs that great voices still matter.

  • newinNM

    Yea! Go Kelly! She deserves her success!

    Sigh, BTIKM, I’ve gone from “little song that could” to “little song that might” to “little song that might not” :(  But hey it did make top 30, and the Video could be on VH1 top 20 this weekend, if it makes the countdown it should help with sales.  Saw on twitter the song is being used for a movie in Germany.  In the end what will be will be, I like the song so I’ll just keep enjoying it and let Adam and his record label worry about what happens next.  Just give me the darn album already!

    I am anxious for Trespassing too.  I ordered it the first day I could, and is going to be a long, long wait.  On the other hand, I am so happy RCA is willing to delay the release until the single or singles are doing better on the charts.  This seems to indicate that they are committed to, and have faith in the album.  We have sadly seen what happens when a single struggles, but they released the album anyway.

    I finally took a listen to Good Girl on youtube and I love it!  After just one listen, I can clearly see why this single is selling as well as it is in so early in the game since it when on sale.  I hope it will be a hit for Carrie.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    A nice “first”.  Congrats to Kelly!  :)

  • Valentin432

    Carrie is notw 3rd which makes two American Idols in the top 5 and 3 idol alumni in the top 15 (Carly Rae Jepsen is 15th) in the itunes overall rankings.

    Carrie is a superstar who hasnt had a single out for a while of course she is going to sell tons with  great song

  • windmills

    Carrie’s up to #2 at Itunes with Good Girl! That matches peaks she hit with Cowboy Casanova and I’ll Stand By You. Cowboy Casanova took around 2 1/2 days to hit #2. The Itunes rolling chart window has probably changed a few times since those days so I don’t know how close Good Girl is to peaking from this initial burst. We Are Young’s at #1 and is going to be tough to catch. But, I’m happy with how GG’s tracked so far.

    There was so little notice of when Good Girl was going to Itunes, I didn’t even think about what GG would sell its 1st week out. I was thinking 100kish would be good for a full week of sales. But, a 3 day week? I really don’t know what to expect. The hard core fans will all jump on a song early, so it’s a question of what kind of tail off there is after they buy.

    GG is also up to #9 all genres on Itunes Canada.

  • Valentin432

    I’ve followed the charts a lot recently and I think what Good Girl is doing is really impressive because I’m expecting We Are Young to sell a ton (300kish) and the chart is ultra competitive with many first singles with huge buzz (Katy Perry, Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj and B.O.B.)
    If she keeps this ranking or improve it during the week end, she should have her highest peak single on the Hot 100 since Inside your Heaven  (I guess that was Before He Cheats at n°8) even with minimal airplay and only 3 day sales

    i feel like little lauren has been stuck at 33 for ever!! i want her to chart better, but i know the country charts are very slow burning unless you are one of country’s superstars (ala carrie, taylor, brad, etc).

    i’m so happy to see carrie burning up the itunes chart. GG has been doing so well :)

    Thanks for that info. So, that probably means We Are Young is selling about 40k a day. GG’s closing in on 75% of WAY’s popularity bar according to kworb but it seems like its gains have slowed. I expect it’ll fall back some tomorrow and Sunday. If it can average around 65% of WAY’s sales for the 3 days then GG will sell about 75-80k for the week. Actually, that may be a little high because GG is Itunes only right now. But, for 3 days that’s very good.

    Carrie’s cover of I’ll Stand By You peaked at #6 on the Hot 100 (sales only) so that’s her highest peaking song other than that black hole of perverted suckitude that peaked at #1 ;) 

    dorksided: Lauren’s GP’s gaining fine this week and for this time on the chart, that’s all it can do. It’s being caught and passed by a pack of hot singles from new acts. That isn’t good, but those new acts (Jana Kramer, Dustin Lynch, The Farm) came in with some hype and I think they’re reaping the benefits of long build up. Too, you’ve got Carrie’s single coming. It’s just a tough few weeks on the chart so all GP can do is keep gaining and keep itself in a position to eventually make t30. The way it’s picking up adds and airplay, I’m confident it will make t30. Maybe sometime in its 20th-22nd week which really isn’t bad at all.

  • Valentin432

    I read that Saturday and Sunday have higher sales than other normal week days (which seems logical because people have more free time)  so if she keeps up that high ranking on Itunes she will sell more than what you’ll think just by counting 3 days out of 7.
    As far as Hot 100 position, WAY and B.O.B. will be higher because of sales, WDKY, Glad You Came and Set Fire to The Rain will be higher because of sales + Airplay.
    I think it will be hard to catch Katty Perry because she’s had a solid sales week and her airplay is exploding, Carrie would need another itunes jump.

    After that it’s wide open because neither Gotye, Nicki Minaj or Chis Brown have much airplay, will be a close one but a top 10 debut should be reasonble expectation.
