New and Improved
This week see’s the launch of the new and improved Beyond Radio site (well I hope the regular visitors feel that way as well. In the end I believe it is easier to navigate and should make the charts more accessible. On this week’s BR250 “Heathens” remains at #1 and Major Lazer and the Chainsmokers enter the top 5, While Green Day bang banged their way into the top 10. 4 songs enter the top 25 Miranda Lambert’s “Vice” at 19, Charlie Puth & Selena Gomez at 20, “Kids” by OneRepublic moving 46- 21 and cool girl Tove Lo 43-24.
The 2 of the 3 most added songs enter the top 100, "Still Falling For You" at #53 and as predicted last week "Perfect Illusion" at #78. The third song "The Greatest" by Sia featuring Kendrick Lamar comes in at #143.
Give us Dirty Laundry
Putting the finishing touches on the website upgrade and looking to have in place by next Monday if not sooner. I should also be posting the Sept. 19 charts on Wed. so nearly caught up. After an active week the top 25 is pretty quiet this week, the biggest move by Green Day, moving 19-14. The highest debut in top 100 belongs to Carrie Underwood with “Dirty Laundry” at #71, followed by Nothing But Thieves “Wake Up Call” at #86. Speaking of dirty laundry Nickelback is back with a remake of the Don Henley song and it adds enough heft to make is distinctive from the original. Next week should see a big move for Lady Gaga’s “Perfect Illusion”.
Still catching up
Thought I’d have caught up by now but there was a death in the family so that has set things back a week. That along with prepping for the website conversion have slowed the process down a bit. The good news is that after 14weeks JT has been dethroned and Twenty One Pilots assume the top spot with “Heathens”. The Biebs has 2 DJ driven songs in the top 25 as “Cold Water” moves 12-6 and “Let Me Love You” is up 49-23.The big move into the top 25 and top 10 is The Chainsmokers “Closer” with a big 30-9 leap. Also looks like Kenny Chesney could have a pop hit as his duet with Pink goes 23-15 this week and is starting to see HotAC action.

21 Pilots have momentum, big moves into top 100
Although #1 continues to be JT, Twenty One Pilots make a nice point gain and if its momentum continues it could be the next #1, a feat that eluded “Stressed Out”, which spent 5 weeks at #2 behind “Hello”. 2 songs from the alternative genre enter the top 25 this week, The Naked and Famous move 30-24 with “Higher” and Christine & The Queens 38-25 with “Tlited”.
There are a bunch of big moves into the top 100 lead by The Chainsmokers “Closer” at #45, Sophie Ellis-Bextor sounding great on “Come With Us” at #58 and most added, the return of Green Day at #66 with “Bang Bang”. Rounding out the big moves is another song by Justin Bieber, this one with DJ Snake, “Let Me Love You” at #71.
This week's chart
Justin Timberlake will not relinquish the top spot but Ariana Grande moves into the #2 position with “Into You”. 2 songs enter the top 10, Britney Spears with “Make Me” moving 12-7 and Kungs vs. Cookin’ On 3 Burners with “This Girl”, up 13-10. That song is a remix of the Australian original from 2009 and has a great early 70’s meets 2016 vibe that can appeal to any age group. Most added goes to Major Lazer f/Justin Bieber with “Cold Water” followed by Katy Perry’s “Rise”.

July is a Big Month for Beyond Radio
6/28 OK so I take that back. Here is the latest BR250. Not much movement but OneRepublic moves 7 spots, from 22-15. 2 song make big jumps into the top 100, the new single from Australia’s The Veronicas “In My Blood” at #53 and Chvrches with Hayley Williams at #75 with “Bury It”.6/27 July is going to be a big month for Beyond Radio as the new web design should be in place before the end of the month as well as a new aspect to the site that will usher in an elevated service for the site. I am very excited about the updates and additions. There are logistics to work out so the BR250 will go to a biweekly basis in the short term.The first thing to happen in July is my annual music party weekend which commences this Friday. If you want to submit a chart of favorites from the last 12 months or a list of favorite albums of all time I will be taking submissions until Thursday June 30.
June 21, 2016
Nice moves into the top 10 this week for Adele and Ariana. Justin Timberlake still far out in front of Calvin Harris by 2400 points and 23 charts. The top 3 most added songs this week span pop, country & alternative with Shawn Mendes leading the pack with 15 adds, followed by Maren Morris and Beck with 12 each.
Drake & Rihanna lead the new entries into the top 100 with “Too Good” followed by the 4th single from Selene Gomez’ latest cd, “Kill ‘Em With Kindness”.
FIND OF THE WEEK:
Last Bandoleros “Where Do You Go?” Self described as Tex-Mex/Pop-Rock, retro yet current and way too much fun.
Hybrid charts for June 13 are posted, Untapped and Trending for June 20 coming soon.
The BR250 is frozen for the week of June 13 as during my week away not much got accomplished, well at least where music is concerned.
Another week, another most added for Justin Timberlake
Although Adele does tie him, both with 16 adds. Highest debut this week is Clean Bandit with “Tears” at #93 and 13 adds out of the box.
Can’t stop the Tmberlake train as “Can’t Stop the Feeling” gains another 1100 points now with close to double the #2 song by Calvin Harris and Rihanna. Ariana Grande surpasses “Dangerous Woman” which remains at #17 with “Into You” leaping 31-15. Adele and Alicia Keys both make nice jumps into the 25.
The top 2 new entires into the top 100 belong to Little Mix with “Hair” and David Guetta f/ Zara Larsson wth “This One’s For You”.
I will be away for the next week so I may be updating the charts late and of course the summer party is coming up in less than a month and that always slows things done a bit.
Happy Memorial Day.
We celebrate it with a new #1 on the BR250, the unstoppable “Can’t Stop The Feeling” as it surges past the starting to fade “Sound Of Silence”. It also ties with Onerepublic for the most added with 12 new charts each. RHCP move into the top 10 with “Dark Necessities”, up from 16. The Chainsmokers surge 9 spots to #12 while Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” slides up 7 to #17.
No big out of the box songs this week. The highest entry into the top 100 is by late 80’s, early 90’s alt band the Stone Roses, back after a long hiatus, up 127-52 with “All For One”. Several Eurovision songs ascend the top 100 with Dami Im at #32, Poli Genova at #65 and Sergey Lazarev at #74. The biggest leap into the top 250 belongs to Brad Paisley & Demi Lovato with “Without A Fight”
A lot of activity in the top 25
A lot of activity in the top 25 starting with Justin Timberlake ascending to #3 in his second week fueled by 24 more adds. Radiohead and Pink surge into the top 10 and Red Hot Chili Peppers move 56-16. Outside the top 25 the big moves into the top 100 are Dami Im with “Sound Of Silence” (different from the Disturbed remake) at #45, Ariana Grande’s “Into You” at 52 and Adele at #63 with “Send My Love”. The highest debut is the new single from OneRepublic “Wherever I Go” at #107 with 22 adds out of the box.
A couple of changes this week. The first is the charts have a date change. The chart week ends on Thursdays so I’ve decided to post the new charts on Monday and Tuesday. Also on the BR250 page instead of posting the previous months chart next to this week’s chart I will be posting a month to date chart so as to keep things more current. We’ll see if I can do that on the genre chart pages as well.
I was correct about Justin Timberlake but it was a big week overall
Added onto 32 charts out of the box the song enters the chart at #38 followed by another first week entry into the top 100 at #56 by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. 3 other major artists make huge moves. Radiohead splashes into the top 25 moving 293-23, Blink 182 227-47 and Alicia Keys 806-81.
At the top Disturbed widens its lead over Meghan Trainor, now over 1000 points. Drake moves 14-4 with 12 adds this week and Calvin Harris & Rihanna make a nice leap from 45-7.
The aforementioned artists are the top 6 most added this week with at least 19 adds. The Chili Peppers were not far behind Timberlake with 29.
We’ve added a combined adult chart to the hybrid charts and have changed the Rhythmic Adult chart to just Rhythmic as it really spans pop, dance, r&b, international and alternative. It’s clear in the music landscape there are truly blurred lines. This is notably evidenced by the lead track from Keith Urban’s (as you may know one of my fav artists of all time) new cd Ripcord. The entire cd is genre busting but I am loving this mash up of country, alternative & dance influences. It’ll be interesting to see if he finally gets good exposure on hot ac or pop radio.
I had lots going on in the past week so running a tad behind schedule
Disturbed spend a third week and the top. Most of the top 25 lose points this week while “The Sound of Silence” only lost a fractor of a point. It’s lead over Meghan Trainor is, I believe, insurmountable in the coming week.
Drake and The Chainsmokers make splashy moves into the top 25, while there are a number of first week entries into the top 250, lead by Calvin Harris & Rihanna, although another DJ, Zedd was added to 1 more chart this week. Both enter the top 100 at 45 and 72 respectively. Beyonce sees 5 new entries intot the top 250 with the drop of “Lemonade”.
Next week will assuredly belong to Justin Timberlake as “Can’t Stop The Feeling” should have a huge opening week. The song of the summer sweepstakes begins now.
Happy May Day
Very little action in the top 25. Disturbed expand their lead over rising Meghan Trainor. Gwen Stefani gains points and rebounds to #3. No new entries in the top 10 and the only new arrival to the top 25 is Nick Jonas f/ Tove Lo at #24. Outside the top 25 Pink makes a nice jump to #36, similar pattern as Tegan & Sara last week. The highest first week entry is Garbage at #246 with Empty. Pink & Garbage enjoy this week’s top 2 addsat 13 and 12 respectively. Hybrid charts are posted. Rhythmic Adult sees the most action at the top, while Disturbed makes a big leap to #1 on the Eclectic chart. Monthly genre charts will be up soon.
Curator's Top 25
6/28 OK so I take that back. Here is the latest BR250. Not much movement but OneRepublic moves 7 spots, from 22-15. 2 song make big jumps into the top 100, the new single from Australia’s The Veronicas “In My Blood” at #53 and Chvrches with Hayley Williams at #75 with “Bury It”.
