YOUR RADIO CHART PREVIEW

What to Expect at Three Key Mediabase Formats

Happy Grammy Noms Day, buddy! We’ve decided to turn the NARAS rollout into a drinking game, taking shots every time a new category is announced. So, yeah, we’re plastered. Join us, and when the room stops spinning, feast your eyes on the future of three major radio formats below--and note that several newly minted Grammy nominees are featured prominently.

 

TOP 40

So it looks like 222/Interscope's Maroon 5 will hold down that #1 spot with "Animals" for another week, but Republic will have another #1 notch in their belt with this week’s Greatest Gainer, Taylor Swift’s "Blank Space" (Big Machine), soon. Republic also has two others gaining inside the Top 10 with Nick Jonas’ "Jealous" (Island) and Ariana Grande & the Weeknd’s "Love Me Harder." Capitol's Sam Smith makes the Top 10 move with "I’m Not the Only One." Hozier’s "Take Me to Church" (Columbia) moves Top 15, while Selena Gomez’s "The Heart Wants Want It Wants" (Hollywood) and Mark Ronson f/Bruno Mars’ "Uptown Funk" (RCA) also make big gains inside the Top 20. Over at Warner Bros., I Love Makonnen f/Drake’s "Tuesday" will chart this week.  

RHYTHM

G.O.O.D./Def Jam's Big Sean climbs to the top of the chart this week with “I Don't F*** With You.” Other records inside the Top 10 with huge increases include I Love Makonnen f/Drake’s "Tuesday" (Warner Bros.) and Ariana Grande & The Weeknd’s "Love Me Harder" (Republic). Over at RCA, Usher f/Juicy J’s "I Don't Mind" and Mr. Probz’s "Waves" both will have significant increases, while Republic will see Nick Jonas’ "Jealous" (Island), Nicki Minaj f/Drake, Lil Wayne & Chris Brown’s "Only" (YMCMB) and Taylor Swift’s "Blank Space" (Big Machine) all make nice chart moves. Columbia's Beyoncé will debut with "7/11" this week and RCA's Mark Ronson will do the same with "Uptown Funk" f/Bruno Mars.

ALTERNATIVE
RCA's Foo Fighters are comfortably ahead of the competition; "Something From Nothing." will remain #1 on Monday. Labelmates Cage The Elephant looks to go Top 5 with "Cigarette Daydreams."  Meanwhile, Crush/Vanguard’s Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness will enter the Top 20 with "Cecilia and the Satellite." Robert DeLong's "Long Way Down" (Glassnote) is up over 100x for the week and looks like it’ll quickly go Top 20.  Epic's The Airborne Toxic Event and their new single, "Wrong," will make a chart debut.
