Monday Morning Mediabase Update: Mar 5-11

It’s not very often that we get 4 milestones on Pop, but this week we did. We have to start with Season 1 AI winner, Kelly Clarkson. She obviously likes the number 1, because she’s topping both the Pop and HAC chart this week. With a 1600 spin lead on the next bulleted song on HAC and a 1400 lead on Pop (with both bulleted songs only having a spincrease of around 260), don’t be surprised to see her topping those two charts for the next couple of weeks. “Stronger” also flexed it’s muscles on a new chart by reaching top 50 on Rhythmic. The song is now charting on 4 charts.

Next up is Canadian Idol, Carly Rae Jepsen. Her “Call Me Maybe” has been tearing up the charts in Canada, but like most CIer’s, the song wasn’t getting action in the US. This all changed when a fellow Canuck, Justin Bieber, and his friends decided to make a goofy video featuring her song. It raced up the iTunes chart and radio soon followed. The song is now top 50 on Pop. I believe that this is the first time that a CI contestant has charted on US Pop radio (Hedley has charted previously on US HAC).

Right behind Carly, is another franchise first timer. Chris Rene sang “Young Homie” every chance he got on US X-Factor, so it was a no-brainer for Epic to release it as his first single. With US XF not releasing any sort of coronation singles, this is the first time any contestant from that show has charted on Pop or any other radio format. Of course, there has been charting from UK XF contestants such as Leona Lewis and Rebecca Ferguson, but this is a first for the US version of the show.

Speaking of UK XF, our fourth milestone on Pop comes from the lads that Simon bundled into a boy band. One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful” achieved top 30. This is their first foray into US radio.

Carrie Underwood is wasting no time on her way to the top of Country radio. She’s just kicking out a milestone every week. This week, she has achieved top 15 with the debut single, “Good Girl”, from her fourth album “Blown Away”.
