Monday Morning Mediabase Update: June 4-10

Giving additional hope to all that do not win, Carly Rae Jepsen tops the influential pop chart this week. She finished 3rd on the 5th season of Canadian Idol, but just kept plugging along. She originally wrote “Call Me Maybe” with a member of her band (Tavish Crowe…the one who does eventually get a phone number in the video) and the song became a hit in Canada before moving down to the States (and becoming a viral video sensation). She is the first Canadian Idol to get a hit on American radio (Hedley did chart on HAC). The song also went top 5 on HAC this week.

From the UK, One Direction’s frothy pop song “What Makes You Beautiful” even has their elders bopping along as the song reaches top 20 on AC. Their countrywomen, Rebecca Ferguson, reaches top 50 on HAC with “Nothing’s Real But Love” (that song had previously charted on the urban charts).

But, the Americans aren’t left off of their own chart. Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger” continues to dominate the AC chart at number 1. Her third single from her latest album is also making waves. “Dark Side” went for adds last week and now debuts in the top 50.

From our first Idol to our last: Newly minted season 11 winner Phillip Phillips (so nice they named him twice) charts for the first time. His coronation song “Home” has gone top 50 on HAC.
