Monday Morning Mediabase Update: Sep 9-15

Five milestones this morning on the Mediabase Report – the gone edition.

First up, is Phil Phillips. He regains his bullet and continues to top the chart for the third week (4th if you prefer your stats from Sunday night). With P!nk falling back and the next song with a bullet 600 spins back, “Gone, Gone, Gone” is likely to stay, stay, stay right where it is for many a week. The song also returned to the top 20 on Pop this week. Finally, his third single “Where We Came From” also moved into the top 20, this time on AAA.

Over on CAC, Colton Dixon moves into the top 30 with the song he introduced during last year’s Idol tour, “Never Gone”. The song is actually doing better on the Christian HAC and Pop charts, but we don’t get those from Mediabase.

The Voice also represents with “The Heart [Gone] Dixie” from Danielle Bradbery. Her debut single switched places with Scotty’s to move into the top 40 on Country. This is her first top 40 radio hit. Time for a new single from Scotty? He has an album coming out…

And last, but not least, we have the X-Factor, UK division. One Direction’s “Best [Dog Gone] Song Ever” achieves top 40 on HAC.

    Here’s hoping for Fifth Harmony to get top 30 next week. With the updates the song has been having it could happen.

  • jpfan2

    I think 19 will be GGG’s peak on CHR as two songs should pass it by tomorrow. Of course the song (like Home) just lingers, lingers, lingers so who knows what’s going to happen.

    WWCF got a good update on Triple A and I’m ready for it to be sent to bigger markets. GGG went recurrent on HAC so I think it’s time to retire the song in all markets. It’s been fun but I’m now as tired of GGG as I was of Home.

    Kirsten: Time for a new single from Scotty? He has an album coming out…

    I was just telling somebody over the weekend I thought that might be a real possibility. We’ll see if SYT picks up any adds today and also what kind of week he has at Billboard. I’m not 100% on this idea but I think it rates consideration now that SYT has not only not picked up momentum after finally making MB t40, but also lost its t40 spot (meaning it will lose countdown spins this weekend).

    It got my attention that a DJ at a radio station (Hartford’s WWYZ) heard Feelin’ It last week. The release of the new album (with all the promo and visibility) would actually be a good opportunity to launch a new single. Yes, that would mean accepting SYT peaking without becoming a hit, but it won’t matter if country radio is invested enough in the rest of the material on Scotty’s upcoming album. That’s a big if and yet to be determined, obviously.

    What UMG Nashville needs to do now, and may already be doing, is making sure radio is hearing the rest of Scotty’s album. I’ve always talked about the importance of catalog to prove a person is more than just a one-song wonder. At this point, Scotty’s main chance at ever getting another hit depends on country radio believing in his material. Let them hear the album and see if that makes enough gatekeepers believers. Real believers, not nice-to-your-face believers that prompt a single switch only not to get behind the new single enough. And not beliebers either :p

    Meanwhile I think Big Machine is getting behind Danielle now that she’s about to perform on The Voice season premiere and her album release is in sight. She’s also had a surge in callout in the last couple weeks to help. Download sales aren’t very good but that’s where The Voice premiere and a video will help.

  • Garrett Clayman

    sorry if i’m just behind but what caused Scotty’s download bump? was it the video?

  • NoCalGirl

    Windmills…Until recently, I have felt that Scotty’s label has shown him a lot of support namely by giving him the greenlight to release a Christmas album & then go on his Weekend Road Trip Tour. Both of which require financial backing which is not often afforded to many artist so early in their careers if at all! That said, I just don’t get why UMG hasn’t been more aggressive in supporting his SYT single since it’s charting success would bode well for the upcoming release of his new album ie more $$$ in their pockets. It’s really disconcerting to know that unless a label is willing to strike a deal with the companies that back the radio stations a new artist’s chances of having a hit are slim and none. IMO, unless UMGMercury-Nashville is willing to loosen their purse strings not just for Scotty but for all their artists a la Big Machine & Warner they are in big trouble! Your thoughts on UMG’s master plan would be appreciated.

  • Beck1982

    That’s my understanding. He’s steadily maintained in the 180-200 range since the video dropped. He’s also steadily maintained in the 50-60 range on the country iTunes chart as well. Also where he’s been on the top 40 countdown shows these past 4 weeks has helped more people to hear the song too. And apparently they’re liking it. I just don’t get radio. SYT does so good in every single survey every week. The listening audience seems to love the song. So why radio won’t play it is beyond me. I guess they just don’t really care what their listeners wanna hear and just keep cramming the same 10 or so artists down our throats. It’s getting really ridiculous. I’m not giving up on SYT yet though. I just keep remembering how long it took Dont Ya to finally reach number 1. While I don’t want it to take that long for SYT I do get that there is hope there. I really think the label is planning a real big push here in the next week or two with the album being released in 29 days. I really hope I’m right here. But if there are no adds today it’ll be the 3rd week in a row and I’m afraid we may see SYT slowly slide down. So I am seriously praying the label did enough butt-kissing to the stations to add SYT today. We shall see in another 3hrs. It always seems if Scotty gets any it’s within the last hour. . .

    Did you read her whole post? Or even the 1st line, which says: “Five milestones this morning on the Mediabase Report – the gone edition.”

    She was riffing on “gone” in a couple of milestones (P2’s Gone, Gone, Gone, Colton’s Never Gone), so she stuck “Gone” into the titles of Danielle and 1D’s songs to be playful and go with that theme, not take a cheap shot at Danielle.

    Maybe it would be helpful if you were more familiar with her writing style, but Kirsten likes to have a little fun & whimsical with these chart posts.

  • windmills

    I can’t say I see the Christmas album or the Weekend Roadtrip tour as signs of UMG supporting Scotty financially. Christmas albums are traditionally seen as cash grabs: a lot of Christmas songs are in the public domain, which means Christmas albums are cheaper for labels, and obviously Scotty has a loyal AI fanbase that was going to buy the Christmas album. As far as Scotty’s tour, that’s allows him to make some money per show, and unless he has a 360 deal with Interscope/Mercury (I don’t think he does), that probably doesn’t involve the label giving him tour support.

    I actually think Mercury Nashville *has* been supporting SYT. I’ve seen Country Aircheck Today ads for SYT in multiple weeks, including last week. The problem is radio just isn’t invested in SYT/Scotty and SYT has gotten passed up by songs/acts who either have more momentum or more interest from radio people at the station and corporate level. It’s not that radio people dislike Scotty per se, but they’re more interested and invested in other “baby acts.” There’s only so much Mercury Nashville can do in that situation.

    I’ve said this before but the problem with Scotty and radio play goes back to I Love You This Big and especially The Trouble With Girls. Those songs were out at the time of Scotty’s peak momentum, fresh off AI, selling pretty big, and they were both such weak singles. Country radio took them t20 based on Scotty’s personal appeal not because they thought they were good songs that made radio believe in Scotty. Those 2 songs have made Scotty’s radio situation even more of an uphill climb, because after those 2 singles, Scotty really needed a home run in order to convince radio to get back on board after his period of big momentum passed. Water Tower Town was anything but a home run. SYT has always seemed like a hit to me, but probably not a home run.

    I know this sounds like a big downer of a post but I do think there’s a chance of turning things around. That’s why I talked about the benefit of UMG Nashville tracking Scotty’s new album for the gatekeepers at radio. If radio people believe Scotty is finally coming with songs (not just a song, but songs) they can turn into hits, then they’re more likely to get on board with him, whether it’s with See You Tonight or something else. Maybe a real radio tour with the new songs would be a good way to go if the label senses some receptivity from gatekeepers.

    I agree that radio has more interest in other acts than Scotty. But we don’t know if having big hits on his debut album would have helped him on his sophomore album. For example, Josh Gracin sold well on his debut album & had a couple top 10 hits. It didn’t stop radio from not playing him for his 2nd album. Bucky Covington had a top 10 hit on his debut album & great sales & it didn’t help his sophomore album or radio airplay. Granted, they didn’t win the competition like Scotty, but they were successful with their debuts. Then there are talent show alums like Chris Young who didn’t even have a top 35 hit on his debut album, but is now having success (multiple #1’s in a row). Miranda didn’t have a top 10 hit until her 7th single was released. So talent show alums in country can do well on radio & still have a sophomore slump or not do as well on their debut & do well in future albums/singles. There’s no “right way” for talent show alums.

    I think you are right that if multiple songs are shown interest by radio people & the industry it will help Scotty in the future. I think this is what hurt Bucky & Josh.

    Scotty just getting 1add today now that’s a downer….your post not so much! Always appreciate your input.

    Kelly – 2
    Scotty – 1
    Kristy Lee – 1

    Keith & Miranda’s new single leads with 80 adds.

  • Madilo

    I think it’s time to release another song from SYT. Looks like this one is going nowhere even the HOD passed it .
    I hope his album will have longevity at least, right now it’s not looking good.

  • Madilo

    @chartnews: Billboard Adult Contemporary: #1 (4 weeks) Gone, Gone, Gone, Phillip @Phillips | #13 Roar, @katyperry (Greatest Gainer).

  • jpfan2

    I agree. SYT isn’t doing enough to give the album a good boost. According to some Pulse posters, they’re expecting a 100K opening week for Scotty. That seems very high to me. Even if he had a big fan base buying week 1, what’s going to keeps sales going weeks 2, 3 etc.

    I’m hoping Scotty escapes the Idol second album curse but it’s not looking good right now.

  • thedeviledadvocate

    I thought SYT was doing just fine and it even took HOD almost two months to pass it. I like SYT, but I like HOD more. I also like Scotty, even though he and Lauren knocked my favorite Haley out of the finals, but I like Danielle even more than Scotty. It does seem like SYT has lost some momentum lately though.

  • jpfan2

    I assume Chris Young and Miranda Lambert were off second tier reality shows and didn’t get much bang from them. Their success came more slowly.

    That’s different from Idol albums who have big sales from album 1 but tend to vanish if radio doesn’t play their follow up singles. The more hits the better in my opinion because it helps establish them in their genre.

  • Spurrious

    I’m sure you’re right. One question though. Is spelling her last name Bradbbery part of that whimsical style of hers? Or is that just passive/aggressive disrespect?

  • ptebwwong

    It’s possible that Miranda & Chris wasn’t affected because they were on 2nd tier talent shows. But Miranda actually has a similar “record” to Scotty from his debut album. After Nashville Star, her album went platinum. She had 1 top 20 hit. The rest were basically top 40. Radio didn’t really embrace her similar to Scotty, but had great album sales. It wasn’t until her sophomore album & her 3rd single off that album she got her 1st top 10 hit.

    But as I’ve stated, Josh & Bucky had a lot of success on radio with their debut singles/albums and it didn’t help them for their sophomore albums. Also, Kellie Pickler had success with her sophomore album (top 10 hit, album went gold), but it didn’t help her for her 3rd album & her current material for her upcoming album. It’s just a tough industry to have longevity and continued success on the charts especially for contestants that come from talent shows.

    Who knows what will happen with Scotty? As a fan, I think he will get great 1st week sales. I agree with your post above that the issue is the sales in the long-run. If his album is good (radio-friendly material & good promotion), I could see radio “jumping on the bandwagon” & sales following.

  • wordnerdarchie

    It’s called a typo. :) It happens.

  • thedeviledadvocate

    For some reason there seems to be a problem spelling Danielle Bradbery’s name, and even Big Machine has had problems getting it right. I have seen her name with an incorrect spelling in numerous articles since the day she won and before. Usually its with two r’s as in Bradberry, but I have seen it as Bradbury, Bradburry, and Bradbarry. I have also seen her first name spelled Daniella, which she saw in that article and said “I like the name Daniella.”

    The irony of Kirsten’s typo the past two weeks is that she had the correct spelling on August 30th.

    Typo’s happen, I just hope Danielle makes sure the spelling is correct whenever they cut her a check. :)

  • Spurrious

    Oh….well here is another:
    Daniel Bradbbery:
    “The Heart of Dixie”: ^40 Country (41)

    That’s two so ….no it’s not a typo it’s called not even knowing her name….and this time she also manages to turn her into a man. Daniel? Really?

  • Lexie O’Neill

    KKGO in Los Angeles just premiered Feel Good Summer Song. Oh, WOW. I am in love with that song. And I don’t react that strongly too often, not even to Scotty songs.:))

    And they’re playing See You Tonight right now.:)))

  • Kirsten

    I’m sure you’re right. One question though. Is spelling her last name
    Bradbbery part of that whimsical style of hers? Or is that just passive/aggressive disrespect?

    No, it’s just called being a crappy speller at the best of times. Add in that it’s 6 am when I start writing the post (I’m a Westcoaster), and it’s a recipe for spelling disasters. Sometimes, I even misspell my own name.

    Names have always been my Achilles Tendon.

    Now, I actually like Danielle and have said many positive things about her. So, I would be stunned to being accused of giving her cheap shots and passive/aggressive against her, but I’ve even been accused of that against people I obviously stan. So, that goes with the territory.

    But I am a little hurt to be accused of using a spelling mistake (and only an extra “b” at that – how is that an insult?) to passively/aggressively attack her. Trust me, I don’t stoop to spelling to be passive/aggressive…I can be a LOT more creative than that. Misspelling is totally lame-o when done to be passive/aggressive.

    So, rest assured, all you gentle readers out there, if I misspell your favourite’s name in the future I’m not taking a swipe at them…I’m just an idiot in need of a nap.

    And I don’t even know why riffing on the “Gone” theme and putting [Gone] in the title of two songs is a cheap shot…but okay. But, I was just trying to be whimsical as windmills suggests.

  • dd999

    What Scotty will always have going for him is his awesome voice, which was what I’m sure got him a platinum album for his first album, and a gold for his Christmas album,.and his voice alone will sell this next album and if we can finally hear another song or two on the album that attracts more listeners than SYT, that would be a welcomed incentive. for those who don’t care for SYT. Right now I’m hoping he wins that International Christian music contest he’s in (I think that’s what its called), for his song “Old King James”..he should, its the best of the final five IMO. Who selects his singles? I really do think a new single is long overdue. I believe Scotty’s fan base is solid and will support his music no matter if its really good, or not, but the truth is in the sales and radio play.

  • mjsbigblog

    Wow. Really. You need to check the OTT defensiveness at the door.

    You know what they say about assuming.

  • mjsbigblog

    Kirsten works hard, early in the morning, to GET NUMBERS FOR YOU.

    I suggest a little more respect.

  • Guest

    Why don’t you think it looks good? There is no evidence his album will sell low. His single has actually sold well for the position it’s in. And why does it matter if HOD passed it?

  • Cristenhough

    I don’t think it seems high, he has a very committed fan base.

  • Cristenhough

    1 add is better than none.

  • windmills

    As somebody who makes more than my fair share of typos in every post and comment I make, I’ll just say I hope people don’t misinterpret my honest mistakes as personal slams.

    Unless I’m talking about the latest backwoods beer/truck/hot chicks cliche-fest. Then I’m merrily slamming away ;) But we don’t need to worry about that coming from Danielle.

    But seriously, it takes time and effort for Kirsten to go through every relevant format and chart to find every reality show alum, and then write it up. For the fact that she makes that effort so we can have a numbers thread every day here and and the fact that for years she has done a great job of keeping personal stuff out of it, I feel like she’s earned some trust and latitude.

  • SaSa8

    I wish SYT was doing better on radio. But given where it is on chart, I feel like it will impact sales. But he does have a very dedicated fan base so we will have to see. I’m still hoping radio will come around on SYT. Fingers crossed for good debut.

  • NoCalGirl

    Most definitely!

  • windmills

    Feel Good Summer Song is 1 of my top 2 favorites from Scotty’s album :) Glad you love it!

  • windmills

    ptebwwong: For example, Josh Gracin sold well on his debut album & had a couple
    top 10 hits. It didn’t stop radio from not playing him for his 2nd

    Josh actually had a t10 hit from his sophomore album (the title track, ‘We Weren’t Crazy’). But his album got caught up in a mess at his label Lyric Street, which subsequently folded. Bucky had even worse luck – he finally got a viable single for his sophomore album JUST as Lyric Street folded.

    So talent show alums in country can do well on radio & still have a sophomore slump or not do as well on their debut & do well in future albums/singles. There’s no “right way” for talent show alums.

    I wasn’t saying there is a right way for talent show alums. All I was really trying to say is that better single choices from Scotty’s debut album would have made the uphill climb for sophomore album airplay less steep for him, because I believe the single picks cost Scotty a lot of good will at radio. Now it’s almost like, “He had his chance and he didn’t deliver.” But if the label plays Scotty’s album (or key cuts from it) for radio’s gatekeepers, maybe, just maybe, that’ll turn them around & make them feel like he deserves a hit. I don’t know…just speculating on possible ways to overcome the current interest gap.

  • mmmtx

    I’m with you Lexie – I was totally wowed by Feel Good Summer Song!

  • Madilo

    Good for him, i hate when radio decide the fate of an artist.
    So does it mean that will be the next single or it was just a test ?
    If yes, isn’t it too late to release a Summer song ?

  • Madilo

    1) Because his single refuses to go beong #40 on the country chart and if you think it has sold well good for you, i don’t.
    2) Because his single has 120 days in the chart and HOD 45 days so if HOD is ahead of SYT there’s a problem

    PS : all of this is my opinion of course :)

  • Lexie O’Neill

    I think they’re simply doing what Windmills mentioned…showing us (and radio powers that be) his catalog. I do think FGSS needs to be a summer song…but that’s just my opinion.

    Windmills, as far as taste, WMNOYH was my fave song on CAD and I got the impression we shared that opinion as well.

    As far as SYT, a little birdie told us at IDF that they’re still fighting for that song. I hope they win.

  • SaSa8

    I heard Feel Good Summer Song also on that radio interview and really loved it. His voice sounded so good.
