Monday Morning Mediabase 10/17/2022

Six milestones, including two number ones on the Mediabase Monday Morning report.

Morgan Wallen ascends to the top of the Country chart, yet again. “You Proof” is a promotional single for Morgan’s third album (TBA) and it continues his habit of hitting number one on the Country chart. His current album “Dangerous: The Double Album” yielded 6 number one hits and probably would have produced more. Speaking of that album, it is currently 4th on the BB200 with 46K in equivalent album sales (-1% and 1 spot from last week). This is the 91st non-consecutive week it has been in the top 10 giving it sole ownership of 5th place in the longest run in the BB200 top 10 list. Only the Original Cast recording of “My Fair Lady” (173 week), the Soundtrack of “The Sound of Music” (109 weeks), the Soundtrack of “West Side Story” (106 weeks) and the Original Cast recording of “The Sound of Music” (105 weeks) have spent longer in the top 10.

Also at number one this week is Harry Styles’s “As it Was”. The lead single from “Harry’s House” has spent multiple weeks at the top of the AC chart (after doing the same on Pop and HAC). The album is 6th on the BB200 with 34K in equivalent album sales (down a spot and 1% from last week).

Back on Country, Idol Gabby Barrett has another top 10 song in her catalogue. “Pick Me Up” is the fourth single from her debut album “Goldmine” and was a song added for its deluxe edition. Previously, “I Hope” and “The Good Ones” went to number one.

Also from Idol, Jax earns two milestones this week. Her break-out hit “Victoria’s Secret” climbs into the top 10 on HAC while debuting on AC. The song initially went viral on social media.

Finally, we have Tate McRae from So You Think You Can Dance who also thinks she can sing (and she’s right about both). “uh oh” debuted on Pop last week and this week it is top 40.

Fifth Harmony’s “Worth It” never went recurrent on AC, so it pops up again once and a while. This week it is back despite being initially released back in 2015.

  1. For the life of me I cannot understand why Carrie’s next single isn’t Pink Champagne or Crazy Angels. Aren’t they the highest streamed and most popular of the songs from the D&R record?! What is she doing this era?! I hope this is a hit but I miss the Arista era.

  3. I think several factors influenced this decision. I do think the label considered that “Pink Champagne” would be a polarizing radio single. While the buzz, streaming, etc. is there already, I can definitely see callouts eventually for this song not doing so well which would impact how well it peaks. If PC has bad callouts, I can see it peaking in the #10-20 range. Some of her other recent single which peaked in that range had bad callouts which was likely reasons why they didn’t peak higher. There are singles recently on the chart that have a lot of of streaming & buzz, but do not do as well on the charts (and many of those had bad callouts). Then there are “safe songs” which do well on radio, but are average to bad in buzz, streams, etc. Yes, an artist would rather have it all. “Ghost Story” was a “soft impact” hit because there was little buzz, average streaming, etc. However, it was a Top 10 hit. Unfortunately, I could see if PC was chosen it to peak lower than GS. That’s why I bring up the 2 different situations because I think the label wants a single choice that is more likely to do well on radio & factor in the all important radio callouts.

    “Hate My Heart” wouldn’t be my first choice. However, I think it is a safe choice I could see doing well on radio because it has the sound of current country radio & it isn’t potentially polarizing to have good radio callouts. Also, I could see HMH could have been chosen because of HARDY’s name & buzz currently. He is a songwriter on the song & a number of HARDY written singles have done well on the charts for other artists.
