Monday Morning Mediabase Update – Aug 16-122

Adam Lambert keeps partying in the woods with his latest single going top 20 on Pop. “If I Had You” is his second single to go top 20 in that format. Also reaching a milestone in Pop is September which is now in the top 50 despite it not going for adds until next Tuesday.

Meanwhile. Carrie has had yet another top 40 hit on HAC. Her single “Undo It” went recurrent on Country last week, but is still climbing on Pop. And her new single will go for adds in a few weeks.

Also reaching a new milestone this week is Matt. He is leap frogging up the AC chart. After hitting top 40 last week, he’s now firmly in the top 30. This is his first single and first top 30 song.

  5. Congrats to Adam for another Top 20 hit! And look at those bullets!

  6. Matt’s song with Jim Brickman moved up another position this morning, to #24:

    32 24 JIM BRICKMAN Thank You 88 59 29 21 4.0 2.7 +1.3

    I’m getting a little spoiled by the daily improvement in chart position, but from now on, he’ll need to increase his spin counts a lot to move up. I think he can pass the AI boot song this week, at least.

    sr4mjc, if you want to hear the version of “Thank You” that is on the radio, it is streamed on http://www.jimbrickman.com and you can hear it on Matt’s myspace page, http://www.myspace.com/matthewscottgiraud. There are a few different versions on Youtube, but they are not the radio version. The story on ITUNES availability is loosely “September”, hopefully next week or so.

    hicksaholic, I HOPE this will be the break Matt needs to get signed by a label. Lady Antebellum’s first single was as a guest vocalist on a Jim Brickman song called “Never Alone”, and after that, they were signed by Capitol Records Nashville. I keep hoping Matt will follow a similar path.

  7. Yaaay Matt! Yay Adam! I still don’t hear IIHY in Dallas but I heard it in Austin! Woohoo! So that song still can get a little higher.

  8. I’m confused about Matt’s song. Isn’t he singing the whole thing? Why is it Jim Brickman ft Matt Giraud? Either way, very pretty song- Matt was my second favorite :) Hope he gets signed!

  9. Yippee for Adam!!! Jae, I live in Dallas and haven’t heard IIHY either. Hopefully they’ll add soon. KISS is Cumulus, right? Congrats to Matt as well. He’s a very talented guy – hope he gets signed soon :)

    Kiss 106.1 is Clear Channel, KLIF-FM is Cumulus ETA: Was just looking at Dallas and they added WWFM early 12/1/2009, so I’m not sure why they don’t like IIHY. Seems to fit the playlist they have online.

    I’d love adds from either this week!

    Thank you csprof, I will check it out!

  14. I was checking out iTunes earlier and saw another song called The Truth by a Jason Aldean. It is listed at #389 and I thought it was Kris’ song at first. Wonder if that is causing any confusion?

  15. Four adds today so far for IIHY (all auto-adds):

    KMXB-FM Pub 9 Hot AC Las Vegas 19/RMG CBS Radio 33
    KMVQ-FM Pub 19 Top 40 San Francisco 19/RMG CBS Radio 4
    WBLI-FM Pub 25 Top 40 Nassau-Suffolk 19/RMG Cox Radio Inc 18
    WNKS-FM Pub 8 Top 40 Charlotte 19/RMG CBS Radio 24

  16. Studio57, I think the “Jim Brickman f/ Matt Giraud” billing is a way to get radio stations to play the song. It is Jim’s song, Jim’s arrangement, Jim’s piano playing and the song will be on Jim’s CD, so I don’t mind him taking credit. Jim does this with others too, and I think this is his way of helping new artists get their start. He also asks established singers to enhance his songs with their vocals. I’m not sure how those are billed.

    I think if this were billed as a Matt Giraud song, it wouldn’t be as high as it is on the chart. It might not be played on the radio at all. On the other hand, it is Matt’s vocals that radio listeners are getting excited about, so it’s good for everyone.

  17. Congrats to Adam on a second consecutive top 20 pop hit. Love Iihy. Such a fun summer song

  19. 416. The Truth – Kris Allen

    Isn’t this much higher up the chart then where this was just a couple of days ago? I’m pretty sure this was near Archie’s SBL in the 600s.

  20. Nice updates for both Adam and Matt! I’m so happy to see IIHY doing so well and two top twenty pop songs is a row is terrific!

    Isn’t this much higher up the chart then where this was just a couple of days ago? I’m pretty sure this was near Archie’s SBL in the 600s.

    I checked the archive and on Friday, 8/20, The Truth was 515. So, yeah, it’s going up!

  21. I wonder how high IIHY can go? Top10 would be good! (From my lips to the universe.)

  22. Woot yippie for Top 20…how far did WWFM go on Pop? Wasn’t it like #13? I can remember..bad fan bad bad

  23. Good news for Adam, Matt and Daughtry. Hopefully one day, Adam will be added to the Cumulus stations. Daughtry is looking good already at 50, even before the adds. He will certainly go up the itunes chart when he’s added to pop.

  24. I wonder how high IIHY can go? Top10 would be good! (From my lips to the universe.)

    Right now he needs to hang on to #20 with songs coming up behind it. Cumulus would be great this week, but he really needs some power rotations. I’ll concentrate on 19 before 10 ;)

  25. Watching the very slow rise of many songs up the charts I am now a firm believer that there is a “magical” top ten of current singers who are immediately “played” on radio and given big boosts no matter how incredibly crappy their new music is. I was forced to listen to Katy Perry’s new song and also Taylor Swift’s and Keisha’s and I just can’t believe how terrible they are…but radio seems to love them and they are being blasted in my little conservative neck of the woods.

    So, for the record, I think, though obviously neccessary, radio charts are pretty much for the birds. I am beginning to think that how much a song is played after going recurrent is a much better indicator of the song’s value than initial chart presence. It’s interesting to note how many songs, once they go recurrent, are never heard again…but the “cream” songs seem to have an extended life and many “Idol” tunes fall under this category. I listen to a recurrent station when I go on out of town drives (they must have a very strong signal) and it played the idols constantly: Kelly, Daughtry, Cook, Archuleta, Lambert and Allen always have a good presence, and even an occasional Underwood and Sparks.

  26. oh darn, Heartless fell out of the Top 100 :(

    And I’m not liking that update for TT. That song is so schio in terms of its updates

    Yay for Adam making Top 20 (officially), Carrie for making Top 40 and Chris D cracking Top 50!

    Good to see Matt’s single moving up the AC charts. Too ad he’s also listed as being featured, because that might keep it from being officially credited as a Top 25 (or Top 20 or whatever) hit for him.

  27. And we have early morning upward movement on iTunes charts

    LLWD is now #301 and The Truth at #369 — up 37 and 47 spots, respectively, from the list CindyM posted above. Archie has moved up 6 spots, to #630. But IIHY, Undo It and September all remain in the positions listed on CindyM’s chart

  28. Congrats to Adam! I have yet to hear IIHY on a station in L.A. They were very slow to play WWFM and one station is still playing it. Can’t figure out why even Seacrest takes so long.

  29. smeggingnuts

    Your memory is correct — WWFM peaked at #13 on the mediabase Pop chart (for comparison, LLWD peaked at #10)

  30. SunSister

    It’s not up to Ryan what KIIS FM spins — he’s only a DJ — not the PD. KIIS-FM is not an Idol-friendly station, really.

  31. Your memory is correct — WWFM peaked at #13 on the mediabase Pop chart (for comparison, LLWD peaked at #10)

    This is not the Billboard charts though, correct? WWFM peaked at #10 there. I’m not sure about LLWD, was it 18?

    I’m sure this has been asked many times but can someone explain the difference? Thanks!

  32. LLWD is now #301 and The Truth at #369 — up 37 and 47 spots, respectively, from the list CindyM posted above. Archie has moved up 6 spots, to #630. But IIHY, Undo It and September all remain in the positions listed on CindyM’s chart

    Wonder what caused the large upward surge for LLWD and TT? I’m also surprised that SBL isn’t higher up the charts since it’s very catchy.

  33. This is not the Billboard charts though, correct? WWFM peaked at #10 there. I’m not sure about LLWD, was it 18?

    Mediabase charts are based only on radio spins in comparison to other songs being spun on the radio in the same format (Pop/Top 40, HAC, AC, Country, etc.).

  34. anovich

    Archie’s music video hasn’t been released to t.v. yet and it isn’t getting played on a ton of stations. hopefully once it gets a few more big radio stations on board and VH1 and/or MTV add the video, the sales will improve

  35. This is not the Billboard charts though, correct? WWFM peaked at #10 there. I’m not sure about LLWD, was it 18?

    Correct that wasn’t BB I was asking about Top 40 peaks :)

  36. Wonder what caused the large upward surge for LLWD and TT?

    Maybe the Regis and Kelly repeat this morning of a Kris performance? (just guessing, I haven’t a clue!)

    :-) CindyM (LOL—I almost feel guilty since I rarely post these things!)

  37. Clay and David A are doing well in Indonesia.Both are top 10 on Ninetyniners Funky 40.

  38. Mediabase charts are based only on radio spins in comparison to other songs being spun on the radio in the same format (Pop/Top 40, HAC, AC, Country, etc.).

    Yep. The Hot 100 factors in airplay (audience impressions) from all formats, sales and streams. The Mediabase charts we are discussing here are per format and only count spins.

    To get high on the Hot 100, you need all factors to combine at once. In the good old days, labels used to suppress sales until airplay was high enough (typically 4-6 weeks after going to radio) to debut well on the Hot 100. Now, due to pirating, they typically release the single to iTunes at the same time (or within a week or two) as radio. This leads to lower debuts.

    Keisha’s and I just can’t believe how terrible they are…

    OMG. That latest song of Kei$ha’s. When I first heard it I thought it was a parody of a Kei$ha song. Then I thought, are they freakin’ kidding with this stuff? TikTok re-written as a kid’s playground song? Kei$ha needs to put the bottle down and go play outside for a while. Get some new material.

  39. TT lost a syndicated spin, so I think it’s possible that the negative update is a fluke and hopefully the next updates will be good again.

    I’m glad to see Kris moving again this morning on iTunes :). I hope it will continue to move and that the airplay will improve.

  40. Along with the rise on i-tunes of TT and LLWD, now at 373 and 284 respectively, KATA has moved up to #463 as of 1:15. I wish Kris would get some more tv promo, as it always seems to help, even if only a little.

    IIHY is now #26 on Itunes.

    Happy to see IIHY moving today! The Ellen and Oprah episodes are repeating on Thursday and Friday, respectively, so Adam should see a nice bump.

  44. The jump for LLWD and for Kris’s CD even off a repeat Regis & Kelly just shows that he really needed to get on one of the t.v. talk shows to perform The Truth.

  45. Happy to see IIHY moving today! The Ellen and Oprah episodes are repeating on Thursday and Friday, respectively, so Adam should see a nice bump.

    I think that was a mistake on AO. Adam is not listed as a guest for either Oprah or Ellen this week, and those eps were just repeated exactly a month ago. Too bad, he could use a TV performance now that IIHY is top 20 and much higher on itunes.

    ETA: altho the episode listed for Ellen is the episode that Adam performed on. But he is not named as a guest. So who knows. maybe he will be on performing iihy, which would be great

  46. This abbreviated Brian Mansfield list(linked to earlier in the comments) shows how hard it is for Idolettes to maintain a radio presence (and what a great job Daughtry, Carrie, and Kelly have done to maintain that pesence in their years since Idol):

    True, but in fairness, kelly, carrie and daughtry each have multiple albums with multiple hits for radio to play. Many of the other idols are still on their first album. Perhaps in a few years with more albums under their belt they will have a similar amount of radio spins.

  47. i saw that Kris’s appearance on Ellen is supposed to re-air on this Thursday (8/26).

  48. The jump for LLWD and for Kris’s CD even off a repeat Regis & Kelly just shows that he really needed to get on one of the t.v. talk shows to perform The Truth.

    Unfortunately, his management doesn’t seem to make this into any type of priority and didn’t do much when the song was released either. Thankfully, rerun season is helping even just a tiny bit :)

  51. Danny’s IWNSGB has 3 adds in Country so far today – Canada, Raleigh and Las Vegas.

  52. That’s great about Ellen, girlygirl. Maybe it will help sustain his litte bump from today. I just don’t know what his management are thinking, not getting him some tv appearances. TT is a good song, but it really needs to be heard, and Kris interviews so much better now than he did last year when he made the talk show rounds. Oh well, maybe they’ll surprise us with something this Fall. :)

  54. Hopefully when the fall tv schedule begins, we can get some appearances by the Idols on the all the talkshows.

  55. That’s great about Ellen, girlygirl. Maybe it will help sustain his litte bump from today. I just don’t know what his management are thinking, not getting him some tv appearances.

    A lot of these show are on summer hiatus right now and Kris really has been busy touring so I don’t know how they could have worked at TV performance in. Like bridgette12 said above, when the new shows start again in the fall they can plan something and doesn’t Kris have some time off then? The reruns can help though, so at least there is that.

  56. Adam hasn’t had a TV performance for quite a long time either – other than repeats, same as Kris. And he sang his current single only once. I would love a (new) Adam appearance right about now to give IIHY that final push to the top.

  57. Matt is doing great so far! Hopefully the song can still keep climbing.

    BREAKING NEWS: MATT GIRAUD debuts on the Adult Contemporary chart. He’s featured on Jim Brickman’s “Thank You,” which is new at #29. 33 minutes ago via web

    I always thought Matt could be a very successful AC Artist.

  58. According to Idolsnow on Twitter, Danny’s single IWNSGB moved up 4 spots on the Billboard Country songs chart from #39 to #35.

    Adam hasn’t had a TV performance for quite a long time either – other than repeats, same as Kris. And he sang his current single only once. I would love a (new) Adam appearance right about now to give IIHY that final push to the top.

    Hopefully he will get a another chance to go back on Leno, Ellen, Letterman and the View. I would love to see him next year on Oprah for her final season. He’s been on Leno and Ellen three times, and no doubt will get another invite. It will give him a chance to promote IIHU, the album of course and the new acoustic album.

    Glad to see Danny’s song move up on Billboard. There were a couple of songs that I thought would go recurrent on mediabase that evidently went recurrent on Billboard. Those songs should go next week on mediabase and hopefully Billboard and mediabase will be more in line with each other next week but you never know because neither of them follow their own rules.

    Yay Adam!!! Kirsten, loved your line “Adam keeps partying in the woods” haha! What fun it is watching the Season 8 boys doing so well. I wish Allison was sharing their success, but I’m hopeful that she’ll get another opportunity down the road. 15 adds for IIHY … SHUT UP! :)

    Another great week of adds for IIHY! It has moved up to #25 on Itunes (up 3 spots since this AM). It is such a great song. It deserves to go much higher!

  68. I have a question about adds versus just playing a song without adding it. Based on watching the AC chart over the past couple weeks, some stations play a song without adding it. I had earlier heard that you had to add a song to play it, but I now realize you can play it a few times per week without ever adding it as long as you don’t play it more than 7 times, at which point it is automatically added. Is the cost to the radio station for adding a song different from the cost of playing it? Because otherwise I cannot figure out why they would want to play something and not add it.

  69. 3 new adds for The Truth

    A lot of stations will give songs a couple of spins before officially adding them — they do this to find out what sort of audience feedback the songs get. If it gets negative feedback, they might never add it — if it gets a really positive feedback, they might add it quickly

  71. 4 new adds for SBL

    csprof, “adding” is merely an adminitrative process. Some stations are “manual” adders — meaning that a song only gets added to its playlist when they decide to add it, regardless of whether it has spun the song 0 times or 100 times. Some stations are “auto” adders, meaning that mediabase can add a song once the song has been played 7 times. Just because a song has not been added by a station doesn’t mean those spins don’t count. As long as the station is monitored, it will show up in the spin totals for chart purposes. Some stations– especially unmonitored ones — play a song a lot and never add. AGain, there is nothing magical about adding a song.

  73. WHOLE BUNCH of BB chart-related info on Idols Now twitter page. Daughtry, Carrie, Adam, Kris, Danny, Fantasia, Matt, Kellie, Josh Gracin, etc. etc.

    This is actually accurate only for the station that do auto-adds. A station that does manual adds can play the songs much more than 7 times a week and still not add it. I don’t know the reason to why a station will play a song, but not add it.

  75. woo hoo KPLZ added IIHY haha now if they would only play it :)
