Monday Morning Mediabase Update: June 25-Jul 1

Lots and lots of milestones this weekend. Let’s start with Kelly Clarkson, the original American Idol. She continues to top the AC chart with the title track for her fifth studio album “Stronger”. Her second single, “Dark Side” also made in-roads on the AC chart by going top 40 in that format.

Carly Rae Jepsen had been topping the Pop chart, but Voice judge Adam Levine and his band Maroon 5 have taken over that chart. Not to worry, her new song with Owl City, “Good Time” is flying up the charts and debuted in the top 40 on Pop. I’ll be honest, I thought Owl City would be a one hit wonder after quirky “Fireflies” became an unexpected hit, but this song is seriously moving (and moving those units on iTunes where Carly holds down the 1st and 3rd spot).

AC was an active format for Idols this week. Along with Kelly’s aforementioned milestones, Jordin Sparks/Whitney Houston’s “Celebrate” from the movie “Sparkle” went top 30 on AC and top 15 on UAC. Casey Abrams debuted on the AC chart in the top 40 with his new single “Get Out”. He’d been on this chart previously dueting with Haley. On UAC, Leah Labelle also went top 40 with “Sexify” while UK XF’s Rebecca Fergusen went top 30 with “Run Free”.

One Direction achieved top 15 on AC with their debut single “What Makes You Beautiful”. Meanwhile, their second single, “One Thing” went top 50 on HAC.

We started with the first Idol, so let’s end with our latest Idol. Phil Phillips, winner of Season 11, went top 50 on Pop with his coronation single “Home”.
