CliprKid: I’M BACK!
RockinRobin: Finally!! Mazel tov on the new baby!
CliprKid: It feels good to be back, we have a lot to catch up on
RockinRobin: Have you heard Chris Cornell’s AMAZING new single “Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart” that debuted on Active Rock? I'm in love with the pizzicato strings and harpsichord parts - not to mention his legendary voice. Wouldn’t be surprised to see this reach the top of AAA, Active Rock, and Alternative #HolyTrinity
CliprKid: Chris Cornell just has one of those voices where as soon as the song comes on you get chills. I actually really like this song. Makes me wish Temple of the Dog was still around
RockinRobin: What's that?
CliprKid: Oh Naomi, you are so young, or is that I am getting older...
RockinRobin: Both :) I'm really into Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats' “S.O.B.” that debuted on Alternative and Triple A this week
CliprKid: It’s awesome. Wasn’t sure what to think when it first came on, but once the hook kicks in, I can’t help but get up and dance. It’s #86 on Shazam already, let's keep an eye on this one
RockinRobin: For sure.
CliprKid: How about the new Macklemore song featuring Ed Sheeran!! It seems like another monster, already #9 on on Shazam. They just make good music with impactful lyrical content
RockinRobin: Beautiful track & love the Sam Cooke reference. I have a feeling the Shazam stats will rise as it spins on both Rhythmic and Top 40
CliprKid: Another song that we both are big fans of, "Ex’s and Oh’s" by Elle King, just made its way on to Top 40
RockinRobin: So great to see a female rocker on that chart! The single already surpassed 1 million Shazams and is #14 on their chart
RockinRobin: I have a feeling Rita Ora’s smash, “Body On Me” will crossover to Top 40 too. Just heard it on Rhythmic and it’s sooooo good!
CliprKid: Right? I’m obsessed with that song.. Shazam has it as #15 on the Future Hits chart, but I will go on record and say it is for sure a hit
RockinRobin: Agreed. Great catching up with you! Go home and enjoy your bundle of joy
CliprKid: You mean bundles, we are a party of five now!
