Those ever-fabulous Black Eyed Peas have now teamed up with Shakira & the ever powerful music genius that is David Guetta for a real musical treat. “Don’t You Worry” (Epic) is the one that is getting raves and praise from music and program directors alike and that’s the real name of the game at this […]
Inside AC Radio
New Music Weeky’s Inside AC Radio focuses weekly on the hottest artist at Adult Contemporary radio. Chart activity, new releases and where to find them at U.S. radio.
Multiple award-winning singer/songwriter John Michael Ferrari was recently voted AC Breakthrough Artist of Year for the 2022 New Music Awards. This comes as his soulful cross-over single, “Masquerading in the Night” from the album “My Heart Can’t Breathe” takes flight. John is also featured “on the cover” of New Music Weekly’s latest magazine issue.
Shawn Mendes is about as hot as they come for a major solo recording artist. After his break-up with another pop icon, he wrote and produced this song called “When You’re Gone” (Island/Republic) that he says tells the tale of what he had been going through. I believe that the experience has served him well […]
Charlie Puth is back at the format after a long break and our listeners and programmers are pretty thrilled. “Light Switch” (Atlantic) is the new track from this multi-talented recording artist that sketches out most of his tracks on a laptop. Not a real problem as it seems to be working out to perfection. Tate […]
Oliver Tree is making friends all over the AC40 format. “Life Goes On” (Atlantic) is the little jam that is helping to make magic for Oliver Tree as the track moves past many in a very crowded field. So far, it’s looking quite well for this masterful gem. Those ever-loving Glass Animals are making big […]
Ed Sheeran continues his very red-hot streak at Hot AC with the single “Shivers” (Atlantic). It’s the follow-up to his #1 “Bad Habits” & this one has all the makings of putting him back at #1 and in record time. Ed seems to be in a real groove these days and there is nothing getting […]
Nelly & Florida Georgia line have a good thgin going with “Lil Bit” (BMLGR/RECORDS/Columbia). Kailee Spark is rocking strong with her “Sparkle & Shine” (Kukuau Studio) debut. John Michael Ferrari is also on the move with “Be The Smile On Your Face” (Cappy). Gramma Rikki has a new one in “Closer” (OBCD) that is as […]
All Time Low and their newest partner in Blackbear are providing much entertainment and excitement at the format. “Monsters” (Fueled By Ramen/EMG) is the jam that I’m referring to and this one is as good as they get for Hot AC & Top40 outlets. Brynn Elliott is making the most out of the cast of […]
The pairing of David Guetta & Sia has been proven a very good thing indeed. “Let’s love” (Warner/Atlantic) is the new one that is getting raves from our panel of music and program directors. Both are extremely popular at the AC format, so it is no surprise to us that this duet is getting the […]
Harry Styles came right back after his monster hit “Adore You” (Columbia) to smash towards another solid and powerful breakout. Everybody at radio seems to be falling all over themselves with his single “Watermelon Sugar” (Columbia). It’s an ok follow-up, but seems to be a little overblown in the content. Marshmello & Halsey have something […]
