Gaga Nation is Trending in June


June 2020

1              LADY GAGA & ARIANA GRANDE Rain On Me        1              4814.45

With the debut of “Chromatica”, 12 of those songs make the Trending Top 100 for mid-June, including the top 2. The album also debuts at #1 on the Billboard 200, with Jimmy Buffet’s latest release coming in at #2! The strength of ‘Rain’ catapults it into the top position on the BR250 as well. Her collaborations don’t hurt either.

2              LADY GAGA f/ BLACKPINK            Sour Candy         28           1555

3              KATY PERRY        Daisies  11           1206.85

It’s an all-female trending top 5. It’s been a year since Perry was in the BR250 top 10 (#1 with “Never Really Over”) and she just misses it at #11 this week on the main chart.

4              MICKEY GUYTON              Black Like Me    71           1080.5

The Country singer debuts the timely “Black Like Me” and its release helps her other current single, “What Are You Gonna Tell Her?” move into the top 100 on the BR250 just behind at #75.

5              ELLIE GOULDING              Power   42           1035.7

The English songstress interpolates Dua Lipa’s “Be The One” on the 5th single to precede her July album “Brightest Blue”. David Paich of Toto gets a songwriting credit on this one.

6              BIFFY CLYRO       Tiny Indoor Fireworks    52           956.3

This is the third song in the last 4 months by the Brit band to make the trending top 10 and to reach the BR250’s top 60.

7              WEEZER                Hero      15           921.65

COVID songs abound and this is one of them. A second preview into the upcoming “Van Weezer” album, after last year’s “End of The Game”.

8              TOPIC & A7S       Breaking Me      27           916.7

This is currently the #3 song on the European airplay chart. It’s driving me crazy, part of the song sounds like another I can’t place.

9              HARRY STYLES    Watermelon Sugar          24           900.05

With its release as a radio single this song moves back into the top 25 on the main chart. It peaked at #22 in December an should surpass that on the next chart. This one sounds like a summer song.

10           LADY GAGA        Babylon                114         805.8

11           TRAVIS A Ghost 116         798.6

Back after 4 years, strummy as ever, but that leads to an effervescent chorus. Not a bad return at all.

12           SHINEDOWN      Atlas Falls            41           790

This uplifting rock ballad was originally recorded during the sessions for the 2012 “Amaryllis”. It was released in March to raise money for COVID relief and has so far raised 300K.

13           TERRACE MARTIN f/ DENZEL CURRY, DAYLYT, KAMASI WASHINGTON & G PERICO               Pig Feet 129         750.2
