Monday Morning Mediabase Update: Mar 12-18

For the second week in a row, Kelly Clarkson has topped both the Pop and the HAC charts. I would not be surprised if “Stronger” stays there for a third week. This second single from her fifth album also achieved top 10 on AC, making it top 10 in the three mainstream formats. She has two songs in the top 10 on AC.

From Season 8, Adam Lambert achieves top 20 on HAC with “Better Than I Know Myself”. This is the debut single from his second studio album “Trespassing”. You will see in several places (including AllAccess) that his album is to be released on March 20th (tomorrow), but the album will actually be released a bit later. “Better Than I Know Myself” is top 40 in two formats.

Oscar winner, Jennifer Hudson has another movie milestone. Her “Think Like a Man” from the movie of the same name has achieved top 30 on UAC. The song is top 30 in both Urban formats.

Last year’s runner up, Lauren Alaina has also achieved a top 30. “Georgia Peaches”, her debut single from her debut album becomes her first top 30 song on Country.

Canadian Idol contestant, Carly Rae Jepsen is storming up the Pop charts. She appeared on that chart last week and this week, she has her first US Top 40 hit with “Call Me Maybe”. As the song appears to have legs on the iTunes chart (still in the top 10), it should continue to gain traction on radio. It was a big hit for her in Canada.

Finally, Carrie Underwood makes a somewhat surprising HAC chart appearance with her debut single for her fourth album. Carrie has had success in the past on HAC and her “Good Girl” song has been flying up the Country charts, but country songs usually move over to HAC after they peak on Country and it isn’t being actively promoted to HAC either. So, pretty impressive that she’s gained enough spins to chart with no attempt to court the format
