Here is this week’s Idol Billboard Update. Just for You!
- Jordin Sparks’ debut single off her forthcoming album (due to be released November 20), “Tattoo” debuts on the Pop 100 at #88 and the Pop 100 Airplay at #48.
- Carrie Underwood’s new single “So Small” shoots up the Billboard 100 from #93 to #17, thanks to the digital single being released on iTunes last week. Some interesting information via Fred Bronson’s Billboard Chartbeat column: “One effect of Garth Brooks’ receiving so much airplay this week is that other artists received fewer spins than they would have if radio wasn’t devoting so much time to “More Than a Memory.” That helps explain why Carrie Underwood’s “So Small” (Arista) dips 11-13 in its fifth chart week on Hot Country Songs. The track should rebound, but meanwhile the availability of a digital single sends “So Small” soaring up the Hot 100, with a move of 93-17. That’s the second biggest jump on this chart in 2007, topped only by the 94-3 rocket ride of Beyonce and Shakira’s “Beautiful Liar” the week of April 7.” “So Small” debuts on the Pop 100 at #23, and the Hot Digital Songs at #6.
- Kimberley Locke’s “Band of Gold” moves up from #20 to #19 on the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart. She’ll be featured on the Dave Koz and friends Christmas Tour starting on November 26 in Baltimore MD.
- Not on the chart–YET: From Bo Bice’s My Space, “Bo Bice’s new record “See the Light”, due out October 23 as the first release from his newly formed $ugarmoney/StratArt Records, teamed Bo up with producer Frank Liddell. The result is a fresh and soulful take on Bo’s Southern Rock roots; it’s the album he was born to make!”
