    They were giving away Casey’s single as the iTunes free download of the week, so I downloaded it and it was pretty good. Loved his performance of “Jealous Guy” back in S9, and happy for him.

    In case you missed it last night….

    From HDD:

    Universal Republic’s The Hunger Games soundtrack will be the first non-Columbia title in 12 weeks to top the chart as the album appears on track for an opening just shy of 200k. With the film opening tomorrow, a strong weekend box office could potentially help drive sales even higher. UMG will also score the #1 album in the following two weeks as Madonna and Nicki Minaj will both debut on top. Columbia will have five of the Top Six albums next week and although Adele’s 21 is no longer #1, it has sold a whopping 2.4 million albums this year alone and will repeat as 2012’s best selling album. Here’s how it looks headed into the weekend:

    *The Hunger Games (Universal Republic) 180-200k
    Adele 21 (XL/Columbia) 125-135k
    *The Shins (Columbia) 70-75k
    One Direction (Columbia) 55-60k
    *Odd Future (Columbia/RED) 40-45k
    Bruce Springsteen (Columbia) 35-40k
    Whitney Houston (RCA) 28-32k
    *Melanie Fiona (SRC/Universal Republic) 27-30k
    Now 41 (Capitol/EMI) 24-27k
    fun. (Fueled by Ramen/Atlantic) 21-24k
    Gotye (Fairfax/Universal Republic) 20-23k
    *Diggy (Atlantic) 20-23k
    *Esperanza Spaulding (Concord) 20-23k
    Adele 19 (XL/Columbia) 18-21k
    Luke Bryan (Capitol Nashville/EMI) 17-20k
    Rihanna (Def Jam/IDJ) 17-20k
    Kelly Clarkson (19/RCA) 17-20k

    The Mediabase country panel underwent another crazy shift last night (which I originally wrote as “crazy sh*t” LOL), dropping 10 stations including a bunch of Cumulus stations and adding 9 other stations. The shift helped people like CaseyJ in a major way. It didn’t really help Carrie, whose gains were small compared to everybody except Lady A in the top 15.

    The Mediabase country panel underwent another crazy shift last night (which I originally wrote as “crazy sh*t” LOL), dropping 10 stations including a bunch of Cumulus stations and adding 9 other stations. The shift helped people like CaseyJ in a major way. It didn’t really help Carrie, whose gains were small compared to everybody except Lady A in the top 15.

    They’re dropping some Cumulus stations? To my limited knowledge, that seems like a great move. I’ve always felt Cumulus was a major hindrance to Mediabase’s process. There are way too many of them in a 140 station sample of stations, and their corporate-level playlists kind of throw the chart out of kilter. Also, it appears at times they don’t even bother with songs until they’re already big radio hits, except for the select few artists they pander to no matter what song they release.

    Maybe you can tell I don’t care much for Cumulus. I think the corporation is one of the major reasons country radio is in such a mess. During CRS a few weeks ago, the Nashville Tennessean had a story about a CRS commissioned study that showed 20 percent of country music fans no longer listen to country radio. (keep in mind this is country radio’s own study). On the same page, there was a story with the head of Cumulus talking about the wonders of corporate radio and how much it had improved the product for the fans. It was the greatest example of disconnect I’ve seen in a long time.

    For whatever reason, Haley is making her move on Amazon. #80 Overall #38 Pop and her Album sales went from 4500 to #247 

  • Anonymous

    Looks like Haley is getting a nice Idol bump.  She is just a great and unique singer.

  • windmills

    Oh I agree with all that. The way Cumulus does business has been a problem for a long time (think back to the way they handled the Dixie Chicks and were reprimanded by a bipartisan Senate panel for it). 

    I was just a little annoyed because all these AI shifts lately are making it more difficult to figure out how songs are trending. For instance, it’s album release week for CaseyJ and he’s also benefited from the panel shift so airplay has shot up for him this week. But, what does that really tell us about his chances to make t20? I think LDCIAN probably will make it there but with all the shifts, it’s harder to gauge when. The Mediabase shift probably points to GG being stuck at #11 this week and it also brought Jason and Tim closer to GG though GG had passed them. Lauren was probably getting passed by The Farm and Dustin Lynch anyway but the panel change sped that up, but at least her t30 position is secure.

    It also shows the imperfections of any chart as far as measuring the exact amount of airplay when you see AIs being recalculated, and stations in certain markets being added and dropped. The charts give you a general idea of where a song is compared to others, but it gets dicier when you know a big Dallas country station is suddenly off the panel (even if it is Cumulus owned).

    From Billboard:
    On Kelly Clarkson’s album:
    — Kelly Clarkson: At the rate her “Stronger” album is selling (666,000 and counting), it should soon surpass the totals of her last two releases: 2009’s “All I Ever Wanted” (941,000) and 2007’s “My December” (829,000). “Stronger” was released on Oct. 24 and has never sold less than 15,000 copies in any given week. This week, it climbs from No. 20 to No. 16 with 16,000 (up 1%). The original “American Idol” champion’s biggest selling album remains her second, 2005’s “Breakway,” with 6.2 million sold in the U.S.  

    On One Direction’s single:
    — One Direction: As the act makes history as the first U.K. group to launch atop the Billboard 200 with a debut album, its introductory single. “What Makes You Beautiful,” bounds 33-19 as the Hot 100’s Digital Gainer. It lifts 17-7 on Hot Digital Songs (135,000 downloads sold, up 64%, according to Nielsen SoundScan) and enters Hot 100 Airplay at No. 64 (19 million, up 53%, according to Nielsen BDS).

    Billboard’s Social 50 Chart:
    — One Direction continues their march up the Social 50, moving from No. 9 to No. 5 (a new high) after the release of their debut album. The media frenzy surrounding One Direction, including a performance on NBC’s “Today” show, has translated into a storm of social buzz and activity. During the charting week the group experienced a 9% increase in overall online fan acquisition from the previous week, mostly resulting from a 164,000 gain in Twitter followers (up 29%).

    The group understands how to reach fans too. One Direction’s Vevo channel features behind-the-scenes and touring-related content — in addition to traditional music video clips. A video of the act greeting fans gathered in Natick Mall in Boston has received over 150,000 views since debuting March 20, contributing to an 16% increase in video views over the previous week.

    I don’t know if its position was missed or if there was a temporary glitch that caused it to disappear but here’s where it is on the Itunes all genre albums chart right now:

    i wouldn’t worry about Dallas to much they seem to only play certain people all the time which gets a little boring. although KPLX will play some older songs.
