Monday Morning Mediabase Update: Jan 23-29

Two winners, a runner-up and an Oscar winner have milestones this week.

Kelly Clarkson is up first with her second single from her fifth album going top 15 on HAC. She has two songs in the top 15 on HAC. “Stronger” is top 30 in 3 formats.

Next up is the latest winner going top 20 on Country. Country is a slow moving chart and it was thought that “The Trouble With Girls” might take a few more weeks to get there, but the stars aligned and it happened this week. Will this achievement get the gatekeepers of Country allow the song to add the rest of the stations on the Country panel? This is his second top 20 song in this format.

The debut single from Adam Lambert’s sophomore album has achieved a milestone on HAC. “Better Than I Know Myself” went for adds last week on HAC and achieved top 40 in the format.

Finally, Jennfier Hudson has another single charting on UAC. I’m not sure if “Think Like a Man” is the next single because some of Jennifer’s songs seem to be able to chart without being official singles. In any event, it flew up the chart from 163rd last week to be in the top 50 this week. It gives her two songs in the top 50 on UAC.

David Cook’s “Fade Into Me” went recurrent on HAC while Kelly Clarkson’s “Mr. Know It All” went recurrent on Pop.
