Our new Radio Wrap features – The Top 20, Most Added, New To Radio and new Nova, Hit, KIIS, triple J and Triple M Top Spins of the Week.
It was another great week at radio for James Arthur’s Say You Won’t Let Go, now at #1 for its sixth consecutive week. However, new changes in the Top 5 mean that it’s not all that clear who his successor will be. Little Mix’s Shout Out To My Ex and Neiked’s Sexual both looked likely to vie for #1, but Little Mix have dropped to #3 from #2, while Neiked remain at #5 for another week.
The big change and next likely #1 is now Clean Bandit’s Rockabye ft. Sean Paul & Anne-Marie. Currently at #2 from #11, it’s also the most played track on the Nova Network and was the most Shazam’d track in Australia last week. Rockabye is also seeing success in Clean Bandit’s native UK, it’s currently at #1 the BBC Radio 1 chart, and in Germany where it’s #1 on Spotify Germany. Milky Chance’s comeback single Cocoon is the Hot 100 Heatseeker, jumping to #28 from #62 on its second week at radio. Bernard Fanning’s Reckless leapt to the top of the Triple M spins count last week, coinciding with his placing at #1 on the Hot 100 Breakers chart. Entry into the main chart next week is looking very likely, especially with Triple M backing him. Australian hype producer Golden Features dropped his new single Wolfie last week and alternative radio has already jumped on board. It’s
triple j’s most played track and unsurprisingly already ranks at #4 on the national youth broadcaster’s Hit List (see Australian & Alternative Artists). The remainder of the commercial networks are split, with KIIS going their own way and still putting all their force behind Hailee Steinfeld’s Starving. The Hit network has opted to get behind Little Mix’s Shout Out To My Ex, now their most played track up from last week’s #2.
movement lending itself to this fact. Now at #4 (up from #40) on the Spotify chart, it helped push the
track into the Top 20 of the Artist Top 50. Black Beatles entered from the edge of the chart at #48.
The follow-up to #4 Hot 100 charting hit Starboy – and released along side his hig hly anticipated album of the same name – The Weeknd’s I Feel It Coming blew all competition out of the water this week. The smooth listen was added to every major commercial network, including across-the-board additions to the Hit Reg ional Network, and an add to Ash London Live .
The closest competitor was Andy Grammar’s Fresh Eyes, which showed sig ns of traction when it was picked up by Nova 106.9 just under two weeks ag o. Last week saw the flood g ates open for the track with almost as many stations picking it up as they did for The Weeknd. It didn’t land any across-theboard additions however, instead g aining afternoon additions.
Sean Paul is back in the charts following the success of his feature on Clean Bandit’s Rockabye. Following up that success is his new hit No Lie featuring Platinum-selling up-and-comer Dua Lipa. The latest track from the dancehall icon has already seen overseas adoption with Capital Radio in the UK picking the track up eig ht weeks ahead of its offi cial service there. Other key sing les to keep an eye out for include Calum Scott’s Rhythm Inside, the follow-up to his hug e cover sing le Dancing On My Own. Meanwhile, the collaboration between Sig ala & Dig ital Farm Animals on Only One and Belly’s new Ballerina are all commercial primed tracks. Sofi Tukker’s Drinkee is making its way to commercial this week and could prove to be a hug e hit over the summer if it takes off . It’s already had time to chart in Australia off the back of their alternative service alone, scoring a Top 15 placing in the Australian Shazam chart while hitting the Top 50 on iTunes.
