The Place Where Radio and Records come Together Without Talking

Beck's "Up All Night" (Capitol) will be the new #1 next week! Lumineers' "Angela" (Dualtone) moves up to the Top 5. AJR's "Sober Up" (AJR/BMG) is now in the Top 10, up 175 spins. Weezer's "Happy Hour" (Crush) arrives in the Top 15, while Imagine Dragons' "Whatever It Takes" (KidinaKorner) debuts at #32.




30 Seconds To Mars' “Walk On Water” (Interscope) remains #1, while Beck’s  “Up All Night” (Capitol) sits at #2 and looks poised to go #1 next week. Lumineers' “Angela” (Dualtone) is currently #6 and on pace to make a jump inside the Top 5, and finally, AJR’s “Sober Up” (AJR/BMG) should enter the Top 10.


iGEN Alt Streaming- 11/21/17

I look forward to seeing the impact with the new sign ons especially in New York when it comes to streaming.  Over the last month or so we have seen a bunch of records really jump in weekly streams.  I believe its because some of these records are just really good.  

This week Walk The Moon's "One Foot" benefits from their new album coming out and makes a great move with over 800k streams.  I don't see this going down as they had a real nice first week at Top 40.  The Lumineers "Angela" is just a winner.  This week almost 800k streams and it keeps growing.  Modern Rock should be proud as it's the only format currently playing the hit song.  AJR's "Sober Up" crosses over the first time of 500k in weekly streams.  Odesza's "Line Of Sight" continues to impress.  It's great to see the women of the format making a significant contribution.  Alice Merton's "No Roots" just keeps getting bigger and Bishop Briggs "Dream" is just the real thing.

AJR- "Sober Up"

AJR's "Sober Up" is another alt smash with huge potential cross-over appeal.  The buzzing track now approaching Top 10 had over 500k weekly streams for the first time this week and 25 markets are seeing ranked shazams. 



ALICE MERTON- "No Roots" Top 10!

Many congrats to Mom & Pop for having their first Top 10 ever at Modern Rock with Alice Merton's "No Roots."  Next stop Top 5!
