What to Expect at Three Key Mediabase Formats

Buddy! Let's power up the ol' Mediabase time machine and visit the future... of Pop, Rhythm and Alternative radio, that is.

 

TOP 40

Just in time for the celebration of 30 years of Def Jam, Iggy Azalea takes the #1 spot with "Black Widow" f/Rita Ora (Grand Hustle/Def Jam), and labelmate Jeremih moves Top 5 with "Dont Tell'Em" f/YG, giving the label much to celebrate this week. Republic has two continuing the upward climb in the Top 10 with Jessie J + Ariana Grande + Nicki Minaj’s "Bang Bang" (Lava/Republic) and Tove Lo’s "Habits (Stay High)" (Island/Republic). Meanwhile, Ariana Grande & The Weeknd’s "Love Me Harder" makes a huge jump all the way to #30. Capitol's Mary Lambert also joins the Top 30 with "Secrets." Columbia's Calvin Harris joins the Top 10 with "Blame" f/John Newman. Speaking of Columbia, Team Stringer has two charting this week: Ella Henderson’s "Ghost” and Hozier’s "Take Me to Church."

 

RHYTHM

After a one-week hiatus, Def Jam regains the top slot, this time with Iggy Azalea f/Rita Ora’s "Black Widow" (Grand Hustle/Def Jam). Over at RCA, Chris Brown f/Usher & Rick Ross’ "New Flame" looks to be the next #1, and could be as soon as next week. Republic has Drake’s "0-100," up 350 spins, as well as DJ Khaled f/Chris Brown, August Alsina, Future & Jeremih’s "Hold You Down," which is in the Top 20, and Ariana Grande & The Weeknd’s "Love You Harder," which has the biggest move, climbing inside the Top 25. RCA's Kid Ink will be up over 300 spins on "Body Language" f/Usher & Tinashe, and labelmate Mr. Probz will debut with "Waves."

 

ALTERNATIVE

The story of the week surrounds Foo Fighters’ new release, "Something From Nothing" (Roswell/RCA). The new single debuted at 4pm EST yesterday and ended up with 322x, which made it the fifth most played song of the day at the format. As of presstime today, it's the third most played track of the day and looks to debut on the chart Monday right around #20 after just 2 1/2 days, which is astounding. Republic's Milky Chance will remain #1 for a 6th week with their big hit, "Stolen Dance." Lorde's Hunger Games hit, "Yellow Flicker Beat” (Lava/Republic) will enter the Top 10.
