Monday Morning Mediabase Update: Feb 20-26

In celebration of Oscar week, let’s kick the radio milestones with Idol’s only Oscar winner, Jennifer Hudson. Her new single, “Think Like a Man” from the movie of the same name and featuring Ne-Yo, went top 40 on UAC. This gives Jennifer two songs in the top 40 of that format and the song is also top 30 on Urban

Meanwhile, another top 30 song this week is Adam Lambert’s “Better Than I Know Myself”. The song is the lead-off single from his sophomore album that is expected out some time in April.

Kelly’s “Stronger” has been charging up all 3 Mainstream charts with some massive, jaw-dropping gains. It seems to hit a milestone almost every week and this week is no different. This week, the song hit top 5 on the Pop chart and has its sites set on number 1. This song is a beast.

Finally, the big news of the week is Carrie Underwood’s new single “Good Girl”. This song has only been out since late Thursday, but it flew up the charts in anticipation of its add date. Radio must have been hankering for a new song from Carrie because the song already has over 500 spins and almost a 5M AI. I expect it will be a big add date for this debut single this Monday. It could put up a spincrease for the week that we more usually expect with a big song on Pop. Impressive.
