Monday Morning Mediabase Update: Dec 17-23

T’was the day before Christmas, when all through the charts, not a bullet was rising, not even for Kelly. Well, it just seems that way, Kelly does have bullets as do others, but Christmas songs are creating a drag on many a chart. We should return to non-Christmas songs starting on Wednesday, but then the stations will start with their yearly countdowns, so don’t expect to see the charts return to normal for another week.

Nevertheless, there were still three milestones this week.

Over on CAC, Jason Castro got what I seem to recall as his first top 10 song. “Gloria (Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” rises to 9th this week. Also on CAC is Mandisa. Her “Somebody’s Angel” achieved top 40 this week which givers her two songs in the top 40 in that format.

Finally, also reaching top 40 is Season 1 Voice contestant, Vicci Martinez. Her “Come Along” with her judge/mentor Cee Lo Green has moved into the top 40 on AAA. Phil Phillips continues to top the chart as he has done for several weeks now

HDD mentioned that they will be taking a few weeks off, so I imagine we will not see updates from them today (and if we do get updates, we should get the final chart today). Merry Christmas everybody!
