Monday Morning Mediabase Update: May 23-29

There are six milestones to celebrate this last Monday Morning of May.

Zayn doubles up on the milestones this week with two milestones. The X-Factor star’s debut single “Pillowtalk” entered the top 30 on AC this week making it top 30 in all three mainstream formats (top 10 on Pop, top 15 on HAC) plus Rhythmic (top 20). Meanwhile, his new single “Like I Would” went for adds last week on Pop and entered the top 50 this week.

Two additional milestones on AC this week are from Idols. Original recipe Idol Kelly Clarkson performed an emotional “Piece by Piece” on Idol and the song was a massive success on the iTunes chart. The re-issue of that song has already gone top 10 on HAC and now it is also top 10 on AC. Nick Fradiani who won Idol last year debuted “Get You Home” on AC this week. The song is also charting on HAC.

Two hold-overs at number one: Lauren Daigle on CAC with “Trust Yourself” and Fifth Harmony with “Work from Home” on the largest chart – Pop.

Drake is blocking everybody’s view. His “Views” is parked firmly in the number one spot on the BB200 for a fourth week. Billboard reports that this is the most a male has spent in the number one spot in over 4 years (Michael Buble’s dominant Christmas Album from 2011 – another Canadian!). One has to reach way back to 2010 and Eminem to find a non-holiday album from a male that topped the chart for 4 weeks. “Views” had the following stats: 189K equivalent, 50K albums, 111K SEAs and 27K TEAs. Ariana Grande has to settle for number 2 on both the BB200 and sales (175K/129K). Voice judge Blake Shelton tops the album sales and is 3rd on the BB200 (170K/153K). This is Blake’s 10th top 10 album.

Beyonce’s “Lemonade” is 4th (99K, -23%), Rihanna is 5th (48K, +8%), Eric Clapton debuts in 6th (46K/44K), Bob Dylan is 7th (42K – 22nd top 10 album for Bob extending his record as the male artist with the most top 10s since 1963), Meghan Trainor is 8th (39K -64%), Adele is 9th (36K, +39%) and Mudcrutch is 10th (33K/32K).
