Monday Morning Mediabase 10/02/2017

Nine milestones this Monday Morning to start off October.

This morning, Liam Payne becomes the third member of One Direction to top the Pop radio charts. “Strip That Down” features Quavo and an uncredited Ed Sheeran. It is the debut single from Liam and the song is also on the HAC and Rhythmic charts in the top 15 and 20 respectively. Liam takes over from his bandmate Niall Horan. Liam will likely top the pop chart for weeks. He’s got 4700 spins on the next rising song – Taylor Swifts LWYMMD which has only a 558 spincrease. One Direction becomes the first band to have three members top the Pop charts in their solo efforts and the first band where bandmates replaced each other at the top of the chart.

The first One Directioner to top the Pop chart was Zayn and he arrives back on that chart this week with “Dusk Till Dawn” featuring Sia. The song is the debut single for his upcoming sophomore album. The song is also used in the trailer for the new Idris Elba/Kate Winslet flick “The Mountain Between Us” (to be released this week). “Dusk Till Dawn” debuts in the top 50 on Pop and goes top 40 on HAC.

Camila Cabello, also from X-Factor and also first to leave the band that made her famous, also gets two milestones this week. Her second single from her debut album (“Havana” featuring Young Thug) goes top 30 on Pop while debuting on the HAC chart this week in the top 50. This song appears to have more lasting momentum than her debut single which peaked at about this point. This may be her breakthrough solo song.

Her former band, Fifth Harmony, also racks up a milestone for their second single from their latest album. “He Like That” goes top 40 on Pop.

Two milestones from Idols this week. Phillip Phillips won season 11 of American Idol and “Miles” is the debut single off of his upcoming album. The song reached top 20 on HAC. Over on CAC, we have Mandisa from season 5. Her “Bleed the Same” goes top 30 on CAC.

Finally, AGT’s/DWTS’s Lindsey Stirling goes top 40 on HAC with “Love’s Just a Feeling” featuring Rooty.
