CHART CHAT
8/24/15

HITS' own Jesse Beer (CliprKid) and Naomi Robin (RockinRobin) jump on the web to discuss the newest adds on the radio charts this week, and you've got an inside look at their chat. Find out what's hot on their radar.

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

CliprKid: POWERHOUSE!

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!

LET HER BE
8/24/15
While the majority of my colleagues were focused on tracking new releases on Friday, I had the pleasure of fleeing the cesspool to start my weekend early. My field trip took me to the land of watermelon margaritas and tacos—aka Warner Bros.Summer Sessions, featuring Bebe Rexha
 
Reeking of chutzpah, the fearless rock star mesmerized the crowd, performing chart-topping tracks, including David Guetta’s “Hey Mama,” which features Rexha and Nicki Minaj. In addition, she delivered a solid performance of Rihanna & Eminem’s hit, “Monster Under My Bed,” co-penned by Rexha.
 
This badass bitch held nothing back, clothing included, as she disregarded a few wardrobe malfunctions, warning the crowd that they’d probably “see a little more nip, cause it’s gonna get a little crazier." No, I don’t have any photos for proof, you perverts.
 
After taking the opportunity to urge industry weasels to refrain from changing their artists, Rexha paused to praise Senior A&R Exec Jeff Fenster. She thanked him for believing in her since day one—the day she walked into his office in her “corny-ass beanie cap and dress.”

Take a listen to Rexha's Spotify Viral 50 smash, “Show Me Crazy,” off her debut EP, I Don’t Wanna Grow Up. I bet you'll find that Fenster made the right decision. 
 
L’chaim,
Naomi Robin

TINI'S BIG MOVE
8/21/15


Martina "Tini" Stoessel 
snapped the above pic with Disney Music Group President Ken Bunt and DMG SVP A&R and Creative Mio Vukovic to commemorate her brand new deal with Hollywood Records.

Stoessel rose to acclaim as the star of the teen telenovela and global franchise Violetta, which airs on Disney Channels throughout Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Russia, reaching nearly 140 countries. The show's earned more than 1.4b YouTube views globally and has sold 3m soundtracks, 7m+ books and 4m+ diaries.

“Martina is a fantastic talent and even more impressive as a person. I have no doubt that her new music will continue to establish her as a major star around the world,” Bunt announced today.

Mickey Mouse  was on vacation in the Bahamas and unavailable for comment.
