The Add Action at Top 40, Rhythm and Alternative

Buddy! How about those VMAs? Did you have a wardrobe malfunction? We sure the hell did. Anyways, check out the add action at three key Mediabase formats in the week preceding Labor Day Weekend. Hey, let's drive to Vegas! If we leave now, we ... hey, where'd you go?

 

TOP 40

The action was pretty spread out this week. Capitol nears a panel close-out on Katy Perry’s “This Is How We Do” and has a second impressive week with Mary Lambert’s “Secrets.” Warner Bros. has a big follow-up week on Jason Derulo’s “Trumpets.” Def Jam has two on the list with Jeremih f/YG’s “Don’t Tell ‘Em” and Afrojack vs Thirty Seconds To Mars’ “Do Or Die,” on official impact. There were three more first-timers off to great starts: Epic with Gipp f/Cee Lo Green’s “Shine Like Gold,” Columbia with Ella Henderson’s “Ghost” and RCA with Hillary Duff’s “All About You,” as well as another appearance for “Fireball” by Pitbull f/John Ryan. Republic stays hot, as Kiezsa's “Hideaway” (Island), Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” (YMCMB) and Island's The Vamps f/Demi Lovato with “Somebody to You” all enjoy big weeks.

 

RHYTHM

In a fairly slow week, Trey Songz f/Nicki Minaj's "Touchin' Lovin'" is the #1 Most Added track. Meanwhile, Republic has both Nicki Minaj’s "Anaconda" and Drake’s "0-100" in the Most Added column. "All About That Bass," by Epic's Meghan Trainor, continues to build nicely, while "Telegraph Ave" by Glassnote's Childish Gambino also has a solid week.

 

ALTERNATIVE

This week at Modern Rock, Nonesuch/Warner Bros.Black Keys and their new single, "Gotta Get Away," share the Most Added honors with RCA's Cage The Elephant and "Cigarette Daydreams." Last Gang/WB’s Death From Above 1979 continues to shine with "Trainwreck 1979." Columbia had a strong first week with Jack White's "Would You Fight for My Love?" (Third Man). Other winners included Bleachers’ "Rollercoaster" (RCA), Spoon's "Do You" and Bastille's "Flaws."
