Monday Morning Mediabase Update: Dec 2-8

Ten milestones this week – Because it is Christmas time, most of those are for Christmas songs.

Kelly Clarkson spends her fifth consecutive week with three radio airplay milestones. Her rivals the Ducks? Can’t seem to chart. Why? Because that isn’t music. People would rather listen to “Christmas Shoes”. Kelly’s original “Underneath the Tree” holds onto the number one slot on the AC chart for its second week. It is joined in the top 10 by “Please Come Home for Christmas” and the top 15 by “Blue Christmas”.

Also getting milestones on AC are two British acts. From X-Factor, we have Leona Lewis jumping from the top 50 to 25th with “One More Sleep”. BGT is represented by Susan Boyle with her “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” going top 30.

CAC is another format giving way to the Christmas songs. Mandisa’s “It’s Christmas” just debuted on the chart last week and is already in the top 5. Jason Castro’s “Gloria (Hark! The Herald Angels Sing)” skips over the top 40 and goes straight to top 30. Finally, Colton Dixon’s “Jingle Bells” debuts on the cahrt in the top 50.

Two non-Christmas songs do have milestones this week. Jennifer Hudson’s “I Can’t Describe” has been hanging around the high teens for a while and this week, made top 15. One Direction’s “The Story of My Life” goes top 30 on HAC.
