What to Expect at Three Key Mediabase Formats

Buddy!! Labor Day is just around the corner and you know what that means: a long weekend, drinks by the pool and a holiday chart preview. If you're still conscious and capable of reading without getting the spins, take a peek at our predictions for three key Mediabase formats below.

 

TOP 40

The ladies keep charging to the top of the chart. We have a new #1 in Charli XCX’s "Boom Clap," while Meghan Trainor’s "All About that Bass" (Epic) jumps to #6, followed by Ariana Grande f/Zedd’s "Break Free" (Republic). Big Machine/Republic's Taylor Swift has this week’s Greatest Gainer with "Shake it Off" and makes the Top 10 move in just two weeks; now that’s a quick rise to the top! And we aren’t done there; "Black Widow," by Grand Hustle/Def Jam's Iggy Azalea f/Rita Ora, earns 1000+ spins and is looking to make that Top 10 move as well. Two making the Top 20 move this week are Def Jam's Jeremih with "Dont Tell 'Em" f/YG and Warner Bros.Eckosmith with "Cool Kids." Capitol's Katy Perry also has an impressive spin increase week on "This is How We Do," and the same can be said for Tove Lo’s "Habits (Stay High)” (Island) and Pitbull f/John Ryan’s "Fireball" (Mr. 305/Polo Grounds/RCA). Charting this week are Jason Derulo’s "Trumpets," through Warner Bros., Columbia’s MKTO with “American Dream” and labelmate Kim Cesarion’s "Undressed."

 

RHYTHM

Def Jam's Jeremih will hold down the top spot again this week with "Don't Tell 'Em" f/YG, while Iggy Azalea f/Rita Ora’s "Black Widow" (Grand Hustle/Def Jam) moves into the Top 10. "No Mediocre," by Grand Hustle/Columbia’s T.I. f/Iggy Azalea, has another great week and inches closer to the Top 5. Over at Republic, Nicki Minaj’s "Anaconda" (YMCMB/Republic), Drake's "0-100" and Jessie J + Ariana Grande + Nicki Minaj’s “Bang Bang” all have significant gains and continue to climb the chart. And take a look at Epic’s triple threat; TeeFlii’s "24 Hours" and Lil Jon f/Tyga’s "Bend Ova" will both be up over 200 spins, while Meghan Trainor’s "All About That Bass" leaps into the Top 25 and looks to be up over 350 spins. 

 

ALTERNATIVE

Historically with Modern Rock, Labor Day’s arrival means you can expect a lot of specialty programming that will affect rotations and the overall spins of the chart. On that note, Vance Joy's "Riptide" remains at #1. Columbia’s Hozier climbs into the Top 10 with "Take Me to Church" (#9). Meanwhile, Last Gang/Warner Bros.Death From Above 1979 arrives in the Top 20 with "Trainwreck 1979," and Black Keys have a strong week of spins up around 200x for their new single "Gotta Get Away" (Nonesuch/WB), as that one quickly inches toward the Top 20. At RCA, Cage the Elephant and their latest single, "Cigarette Daydreams," will have a nice chart debut at around #35.
