So, what was your favorite Grammy moment? It’s kind of hard to pick just one. The tributes were all great. Whether it was the Eagles, Gaga, Hollywood Vampires, John Legend, Demi Lovato, Megan Trainor and Tyrese, Pentatonix and Stevie Wonder or Chris Stapleton, Gary Clark Jr. and Bonnie Raitt, they all saluted their honoree with style and class. That being said, many programmers are saying that the biggest downer was the sound. If we want our artists to perform live on awards shows, then there has to be better sound.

Republic’s CW, Spangler and Russell were all smiles Monday night, as Taylor Swift took home her second Album of the Year, along with two other awards, and gave the speech everyone is talking about. The Weeknd also scored big, winning Best R&B Performance and Best Urban Contemporary Album. Turning the focus to radio, DNCE continues to move up inside the Top 10 with “Cake by the Ocean.” Both Mike Posner’s “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” and James Bay’s “Let It Go” should be in the Most Added column this week.


RCA’s Riccitelli, JR, Daddio and Cooper are celebrating Mark Ronson f/Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk,” which won for Record of the Year and is still being played on radio and used in several TV syncs. I’m not sure that one’s ever going away, as the fanbase for it continues to grow. G-Eazy f/Bebe Rexha’s “Me, Myself & I“ is one of the Greatest Gainers and was one of the Most Added again last week; WKCI, WWWQ and WXXL are new this week. ZAYN’s “PILLOWTALK” was #1 Most Added last week and is already on the add board this week with KKHH, KZON, WBMP and WXSS. Kygo’s “Stole the Show” is approaching the chart; WITH, KKRZ, WKSC and WFLZ are new.

Def Jam’s Sackheim, Rothschild and Farag watched as Justin Bieber won his first Grammy Monday night for “Where Are U Now?,” before wowing the crowd with an acoustic performance of “Love Yourself” and then jumping on stage with Diplo and Skrillex to perform their Grammy-winning track. Alessia Cara’s second single, “Wild Things,” is off to a great start, as WBMP, WWMX, WNCI and WKSS have already jumped on board.

Capitol’s Rainey, Youngblood & Siciliano watched Grammy nominee Tori Kelly sing her heart out on Monday night, before seeing her sales jump 854%; not bad, not bad at all.

Troye Sivan’s “Youth” has climbed up inside the Top 30 with help from KNDN, KKRZ and WZFT. Duke Dumont’s “Ocean Drive” is bubbling just under the chart with 30 stations on board.

Epic’s Team Glassman celebrated Best New Artist honors with Meghan Trainor (pictured below with Glassman and manager extraordinaire Troy Carter), who could hardly get her acceptance speech out through her tears. Zara Larsson & MNEK’s “Never Forget You” charted this week and was one of the Most Added tracks last week, pulling in majors like Z100, KIIS, KAMP and WIHT. AudioDamn!’s “Radar” is now on more than 55 stations, as the group gets set to announce their tour and as the single prepares to chart. Impacting 2/22, Yo Gotti’s “Down in the DM” is next up.


Global’s Team Palmese continues to build Nathan Sykes f/Ariana Grande’s “Over and Over Again.” The Shazam numbers on that one are showing a huge response to the airplay. At WNCI, after only 45 spins, the tracked jumped to #1 Shazam. Michael McCoy says, “It’s my favorite record on the station right now.

Hollywood’s Finck, Smith and Ennis are rockin’ with Shawn Hook’s “Sound of Your Heart.” The track is ready to move Top 30, after pulling in new airplay from WBBM, WFLZ, WKRZ and WNOH this week.

Warner Bros.Gray, Dyer, Reich & Shih are gushing over Andra Day’s performance on the Grammys. There was certainly no sound problem with her voice, as she belted out “Rise Up” and brought the crowd to their feet. Jason Derulo’s “Get Ugly” (Beluga Heights) continues to add spins. That one got big increases this week from WNOW, WRVW and WXSS. Lukas Graham’s “7 Years” is ready to jump Top 30 after several weeks in the Most Added column.

Artbeatz/Red’s Buch, Halpern & Weil have moved Daya’s “Hideaway” to # 7 this week. With some huge increases at WBBM, WNKS, KIIS and KDWB, it looks poised to join the Top 5.

Columbia’s Leipsner, Borris & Vaughan had the performer everyone was waiting to see last night with Adele, whose current single, “When We Were Young,” is heading Top 10 with huge M scores and audience growth. Rachel Platten’s “Stand by You,” which pulled in new airplay from Y100 and WFKS last week, is now Top 25. One Direction’s “History” (SYCO) debuted this week. The Chainsmokers f/Rozes’ “Roses” is now Top 5 at MB, Shazam and Spotify. Ruth B’s “Lost Boy” impacts this week, and WIOQ, KHTS, WZFT and WIHT are all already on the board.

MUSIC WE LOVE: Andra Day’s “Rise Up” (Warner Bros.), Little Mix f/Jason Derulo’s “Secret Love Song” (SYCO).
