Friday the 13th and a full moon? Ideal conditions for a radio séance. Clear your mind and we will manifest the future of three Mediabase radio formats.

 

TOP 40

With another 1000+ spin week, Grand Hustle/Def Jam's Iggy Azalea will retain the #1 spot with "Fancy," and Greatest Gainer Republic's Ariana Grande moves up to #2 with "Problem" (featuring Iggy Azalea). Columbia's Calvin Harris moves inside the Top 5.  "Am I Wrong" by Warner Bros.Nico & Vinz rounds out the climbers in the Top 10. Magic!’s "Rude" (RCA) and Jason Derulo f/Snoop Dogg’s "Wiggle" (Warner Bros.) both enjoy 1000+ spin increases inside the Top 20. Epic's KONGOS also has another strong week of growth inside the Top 20 with "Come with Me Now.” Pharrell Williams’ "Come Get it Bae” (Columbia), Jennifer Lopez’s "First Love" (Capitol) and Demi Lovato f/Cher Lloyd’s "Really Dont Care" (Hollywood) all make significant moves inside the Top 30. Warner Bros.’ Echosmith is bubbling just below and looking to chart with “Cool Kids,” along with “Addicted to You” from Republic’s Avicii

 

RHYTHM

Iggy Azalea’s "Fancy" (Grand Hustle/Def Jam) holds the #1 position again this week, with Republic’s Ariana Grande and "Problem” f/Iggy Azalea now at #2. Other massive gains are seen from Tinashe f/ScHoolboy Q’s "2 On" (RCA) and Jason Derulo f/Snoop Dogg’s "Wiggle" (Warner Bros.). Republic sees significant gains for Lil Wayne’s "Believe Me" and Nicki Minaj’s "Pills N Potions." Def Jam debuts Jeremih’s "Don't Tell Em," as it goes for adds.

 

ALTERNATIVE

Come Monday, it’ll be six weeks and counting at #1 for Black Keys’ "Fever" (Nonesuch/Warner Bros.) and there really aren't any threats to their dominance just now. RCA’s Bleachers will climb to #3 with their hit "I Wanna Get Better." Arctic Monkeys’ "Why'd You Only Call Me When..." goes Top 5; that one could be a future #1 contender. Coldplay's  "A Sky Full of Stars" (Parlophone) quickly moves to #15. Dirty Heads’ "My Sweet Summer" (Five Seven) seems poised for a Top 10 run; it's up close to 200x. Interscope’s Rise Against will have a hot-shot debut with "I Don't Want To Be Here..."  On the charting front, look for Hollywood's Joywave to debut with "Tongues."
