Tuesday Music Action

TUESDAY RADIO ACTION: Let's review the key Mediabase adds at a few of your favorite formats, shall we? It's like having lunch with a radio guy, only you don't have to watch him eat.

Alternative
Congrats to RCA’s Bill Burrs and Jeff Gillis for a dominating week at radio with Kings Of Leon’s "Supersoaker." It was added pretty much everywhere at Alternative radio, including KROQ, WRFF and Alt Nation. Other big winners include Bastille’s "Pompeii" (Capitol), which had a real strong close out day and which now looks destined for a Top 10 run. WB's Avenged Sevenfold, which was #1 most added at Active Rock, also had a nice day at Alternative with their new single, "Hail To The King"

Top 40
"Best Song Ever" by SYCO/Columbia's One Direction was easily the #1 most added Pop song in the land. Coming in at a very strong second place was Enrique Iglesias' "Turn the Night Up." Other big winners include the latest from Taylor Swift (Big Machine) and P!nk's "True Love" featuring Lily Allen (RCA). Jay Z (Roc-a-Fella/Roc Nation) and Justin Timberlake (RCA) closed out their latest hits as well.  On the developing side, winners included the Jonas Brothers (Jonas Enterprises), Demi Lovato (Hollywood) and Bonnie McKee (Epic).

Rhythmic
RCA scores the #1 Most Added slot this week with Chris Brown f/Nicki Minaj “Love More," with “Turn the Night Up” by Enrique Iglesias right behind. Justin Timberlake closes out with ‘Take Back the Night” followed by Big Sean's “Beware” f/Lil Wayne (IDJ)  and Kanye West’s “Black Skinhead” (Roc-a-Fella/Def Jam/IDJ).

Stand by for more radio news. But first, a quick trip to UMPG's Santa Monica offices to score a baggie of motivation. (7/23p)
