As predicted Lorde makes a big leap, up 108 positions to #11. She also has a second song “Liability” enter the Beyond Radio 250 at #205. Right behind her the Chainsmokers & Coldplay rise 38-12 and look to have 2 songs in the top 10 by next week. These 2 songs are also the 2 most added this week, 20 & 17. The third most added song, Calvin Harris’ “Slide” moves 164-47 and after a slow-ish start Ariana Grande’s current pop top 15 song “Everyday” finally cracks the top 100 up 107-58.
Keith Urban got as high as #127 last August with his Carrie Underwood duet “The Fighter” when it was receiving airplay in Australia. Now maybe the poppiest song on country radio ever, where it now in the top 25, finally enters the top 100 at #70. I expected this would be pitched to Hot AC and a different song would be promoted to country radio. The Band Perry seems to have skipped country radio and gone strait to Hot AC with their current single “Stay In The Dark” (194-161). Lady Antebellum’s new single “You Look Good” (57-40) also sounds to me like a Hot AC song. We’ll see how it all plays out in the end.
