  1. sorry for the dumb question, but why Kris’ llwd is not included?

    Because it hasn’t charted high enough yet. A song needs to be in the top 50 or so for us to see where he sits (Mediabase made it’s extensive charts member only a long time ago).

    Here are his airplay spins stat:
    Overall: 221
    AC: 4
    HAC: 91
    Pop: 114
    RHY: 2

  2. Oh, and I just pulled this from the Headlines thread:

    ‘American Idol’  winner Kris Allen’s debut single, ‘Live Like We’re Dying’  picks up enough Top 40 and Hot AC spinsto enter the American Idol airplay chart at #51. Allen’s versions of ‘No Boundaries’  and ‘Heartless’  are also on the Idol airplay chart.

    By Dan MacMedan, USA TODAY
    Kris Allen’s Live Like We’re Dying makes the highest debut on this week’s American Idol airplay chart. According to MediaBase, Allen’s debut single picked up 180 spins, enough to put it at #51 on our chart. He enters the Mediabase Hot AC chart at #63 and the Top 40 chart at #93.

  3. there was some fear that LLWD wouldn’t crack the Top 100 in its first week because of the way the release was handled — or was that fear about sales, not airplay?

    Anyway, got to figure it will be much higher on the mediabase charts come next Monday.

  4. A Popeater article just posed on ontd_ai quotes Kris (among a lot of very cute/happy quotes) as saying: “Originally The Script released this song previously as like a B-side track in Germany. I found all that stuff out afterward… “. If that’s true, that he didn’t know this, bad work by his management. It was on Youtube for crying out loud. And maybe a warning that he needs to ask tough questions? Glad that he is doing well with the song!!

    ETA: sorry, ignore this comment. I just saw that it appeared in the Headlines post two posts above. Slow internet this morning!

  5. there was some fear that LLWD wouldn’t crack the Top 100 in its first week because of the way the release was handled ‘” or was that fear about sales, not airplay?

    I think the Hot 100 is composed of sales much more than actual airplay. The Hot 100 which will be released later in the week is a combo of sales + airplay. TBH I do have some concerns it won’t crack that or if it does not very high. Kirsten what do you think?

  6. At least Kris can rest assured that it doesn’t sound like Halo…. ;)

  7. Is it a big deal if LLWD doesn’t get into the Hot 100 this week, or is in the 90s on it? I remember Kelly broke the record for biggest leap on the Hot 100 earlier this year, when she debuted around 98-99, then leapt to the top 10 the following week. She got a lot of nice press for it too, so it doesn’t seem like it would be bad for Kris, or like Jive is worried about a low debut.

    I wonder how much further CBTM has to drop before we get a new single announcement. Every week that goes by without it makes me more sure that there won’t be another single until next spring, which wouldn’t be the end of the world.

  8. Yikes, surely they wouldn’t wait till spring to put out a new single for DC?

    At least Kris can rest assured that it doesn’t sound like Halo’ ¦. ;)

    You mean Already Gone? oh wait… :D

    As a Kris fan I’m not that concerned about how fast LLWD starts, as long as it does well later. Hopefully the merits of the song overcome program director “Idol fatigue”, cause imo that’s the only thing that could stop this song from hitting.

  9. I wonder how much further CBTM has to drop before we get a new single announcement. Every week that goes by without it makes me more sure that there won’t be another single until next spring, which wouldn’t be the end of the world.

    I tend to think there will not be another single off of the debut album. I hope I am wrong, but doubt it.

  10. Wow. Elliott’s track is doing reasonably well on the AC charts. Very nice gains.

  11. I think we would have known by now if there was going to be one. I can understand the logic behind it since it does look like DCTR is close to dropping out of the BB200 but RCA also screwed up by letting LO and CBTM linger as long as they did, especially CBTB which clearly stopped selling the album a long time ago. Seriously 2 singles in 1 year? Beyond stupid. My only big concern is so many months going by without a new single and the tour over he’ll fall off the radar..not that I think RCA is actually using common sense here.

  12. There really *ought* to be a new single off DCTR, especially since the tour is going to continue for a couple of more months. If he’s continue to continue to knock himself out with constant touring he should be supporting the album, or at least a new single.

    There were better songs on the album than CBTM for release as a second single, but that’s water under the bridge. I hope they give it another shot.

  13. There’s no point in releasing a single unless you are going to spend the money (half a million?) to push it to radio. RCA may have done the calculations and decided that there is no way to generate enough incremental sales of the album to recoup the cost of a single. If so, Cook should count his blessings. All the money to push singles to radio ultimately comes out of HIS pocket. He mgiht already be upside down on his royalities, i.e. he owes more to RCA than the royalites that he will earn.

    It’s easy for fans to say they should do this or they should do that, but it always has to be based on a consideration of incremental cost versus incremental sales. Realistically, are there any more sales out there for Cooke’s album now that he’s moved to the “old product” Idol category?

  14. Wow. Elliott’s track is doing reasonably well on the AC charts. Very nice gains.

    About time! Man, he’s working for it. Traipsing around to stations in various cities, singing mini-concerts at 8 am, and doing events like crazy.

    He’ll be off on a U.S.O. tour next week though, I think. To hit Guam and Japan — where they love him more than we do in the states … Hope the song keeps rising while he’s not here to push it!

  15. It’s getting a little late for Cook to put out another single. Too much Idol product coming our way this fall.

    Elliott’s single took a nice jump this week. It still needs some bigger markets to add it but it’s doing ok.

  16. It still needs some bigger markets to add it but it’s doing ok.

    Yeah, Elliott really needs that audience impression number to rise. It actually has taken a bit of a jump in the last few days, though, so that’s a move in the right direction, anyway. Always so funny to me that the big markets tend to be by far the most conservative about adding songs. I always think that since they already are the cool kids they should be most fearless about trying something new, but it turns out that the cool kids are the biggest weenies, overall. Interesting.

  17. If he’s continue to continue to knock himself out with constant touring he should be supporting the album, or at least a new single.

    Well, realistically, the constant touring is almost done. I doubt that he’ll do any shows past mid-December, or, if he does, it won’t be more than a few jingle balls. So that leaves 2.5 months of touring, with Thanksgiving in the middle, and a few other breaks in the schedule as it stands right now. If a new single was another slow-burner, it would be peaking around the time he’s done touring, or even later, so I don’t see much point in releasing a single to be supported by the tour. Combine that with the competition for airwaves right now and coming up from heavy hitters like John Mayer and OneRepublic, and you can see where RCA might be ready to call it a day. I figure it just means we’ll get the 1st single from DCTR2 that much sooner, so I’m fine with it. At this point, if they release another single (and they still might), next spring we may well be waiting for it to drop far enough off the charts for the new DCTR2 single to be released.

  18. Had to work late tonight (until 7) and was flipping the radio from my favorite station (AAA) when an ad started. I went to the MIX ( WTMX Hot AC), and heard LLWD! They even gave it a nice promo…”Here is Kris Allen’s Live Like We’re Dying.” Not the DJ, but a pre-recorded introduction by some man with a deep voice. Heh.

    Since Chicago is a a major market, I’d say that bodes well for Kris. :-)

  19. I remember Kelly broke the record for biggest leap on the Hot 100 earlier this year, when she debuted around 98-99, then leapt to the top 10 the following week. She got a lot of nice press for it too, so it doesn’t seem like it would be bad for Kris, or like Jive is worried about a low debut.

    The two situations are really different. If I’m not mistaken Kelly’s MLWSWY debuted on the Hot 100 with airplay only, the single wasn’t available on Itunes yet. That is amazing. Hot 100 is a combination of three factors (airplay, sales and streaming), and the sales factor wasn’t counting for her yet. The next week the song went on itunes and that’s when it made #1, because it had great sales to add to the airplay.
    Now, first week sales for a first single from an american idol winner not making the hot 100 is not as usual. It can debut in the 90s, and if it sells more copies next week it will go up. OTOH, maybe if it had been released only on Tuesday it could go higher on the chart.

    I think lately the tour has probably been selling more records for David than the song, considering how the song hasn’t been getting more audience for some time.
    Without them being sure CHR would play it I can see them not releasing a new single. probably not worth if it’s for HAC airplay only. If he’s going to start working on the new album next year I think that’s fine.
    But I know a way to keep a song by him out there while he works on alum #2… and that would be having the bye bye song on idol season 9! Eh! Sounds good in my book :P
