Monday Morning Mediabase Update: Oct 3-9

Today is Thanksgiving Day in Canada and there is much to be thankful this week on the airplay charts with 7 milestones.

Leading us off with a double is Irishman, Niall Horan. The X-Factorer and One Directioner released his debut solo “This Town” just over a week ago. He debuted on our airplay charts last week landing top 40 on Pop and this week, he moves into the top 30. Meanwhile, he hopscotches over HAC and also gets his marker onto AC rising 112th to 50th. His former band’s debut single from their final album, “Drag Me Down” returns to the top 30 on AC matching the song’s previous peak in that format.

Pop yields two more milestones. Fifth Harmony’s third single from their second album is called “That’s My Girl”. This is the third single from that album for these X-Factor alums that has gone top 30 on Pop. The first single actually topped the format. Nick Fradiani, who won Idol in 2015, gets his second top 40 pop hit with “All on You”. His first top 40 song was his coronation single, “Beautiful Life”.

Carrie Underwood released her fifth studio album “Storyteller” in October of last year and she is still working singles from it. “Dirty Laundry” is the fourth single from that album and Carrie just achieved top 20 in the Country format with it. All of the other singles from that album eventually went 1 or 2 in the format.

Also reaching top 20 this week is Danny Gokey. From the 8th season of American Idol, Danny has turned his third place finish into a career in Christian Music. His “Rise” is the debut single from his TBA album and it just rose to top 20 on CAC. Staying in the same format, Lauren Daigle who auditioned for Idol has her latest single “Come Alive (Dry Bones)” go top 30 on CAC.

Over on the album front, Solange has her first number one album. She now joins a very small group of siblings who have topped the chart. Just two other siblings have done what Solange and Beyonce have done. Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson and Master P and Sikk the Shocker have previously both topped the charts. One pair of sisters, one sister/brother combo and one pair of brothers. Beyonce has topped the chart 6 times including once earlier this year with “Lemonade”

Also interesting about this week’s chart is Van Morrison. “Keep me Singing” is his 36th studio album and it debuted at 9th. This is his highest charting album ever.
