Singles Report: Jessica Mauboy is first over the line at radio
In this week’s Australian Singles Report, Charlie Puth delivers another funk flavoured number to commercial radio. Reaching peak levels of Puth, ‘How Long’ is a worthy successor to the undeniable hit ‘Attention’, which peaked at #12 on the TMN Hot 100.
As Sam Smith’s ‘Too Good For Goodbyes’ slips to #5 on the ARIA Singles Chart and the Hot 100, new cut ‘Pray’ taken from the newly announced album Thrill Of It All tops off the choices for radio this week.
Jessica Mauboy stormed the radio additions with her late arrival ‘Then I Met You’. Lifted from The Secret Daughter Season 2 soundtrack, the track matched Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’ in numbers, but earned more favourable time slots. Mauboy courted additions from the Hit Regional Network, both KIIS stations and commercial Hit stations. It did, however, miss out on that coveted Nova Network addition whereas Sheeran’s track didn’t.
Mauboy also features on the cover of this week’s Australian Singles Report, speaking about the current state of affairs at commercial radio and her dreams of making it big in the country arena.
Macklemore enjoys a second consecutive week in the Most Added chart following last week’s #1, though this time at #3. The adds for ‘Good Old Days’ came after his performance at the NRL Grand Final (where the new track wasn’t actually performed), and rounds out the rest of commercial radio who were yet to jump on board.
Walk The Moon top the Hot 100 Breakers chart with their latest single ‘One Foot’. Serviced to radio less than a month ago, it looks like the track is gaining some real momentum thanks to growing support from various Hit commercial stations.
Meanwhile, it’s a well and truly split spins segment this week. P!NK has relinquished her domination of the commercial networks, only topping KIIS spins this week. Hit is still loving the Justin Bieber + Bloodpop tune ‘Friends’, while the biggest surprise came from Nova who spun Portugal. The Man’s ‘Feel It Still’ the most out of any other track.
