Pink Has Released One Of Her Best Singles To the Format Ever
Pink has released one of her best singles to the format ever. “Just Give Me A Reason” (RCA/RLG) that features some additional vocals from that Fun guy, is moving by leaps and bounds and for good reason. This could be her next huge #1 single. Dido is back at the format and that’s always a very good thing. Her latest, after quite some time, is entitled “No Freedom” (RCA/RLG) and it’s so good to have her back where she belongs. Colbie Caillat has teamed up another AC favorite in Gavin DeGraw. Together the two make beautiful music together in the duet “We Both Know” (Republic). We’ll see how this all plays out in the coming weeks but it’s safe to say that these two will have no trouble at radio. Phillip Phillips has finally put another real solid winner into the American Idol arena. His new single “Gone, Gone, Gone” (19/Interscope) should keep him there for the near future.
Ed Sheeran has come from out of nowhere to become this huge overnight sensation. He keeps his dream alive with “Lego House” (Asylum/WB) and if you add that to his opening slot on the sold out Taylor Swift tour, he should be feeling pretty good about things at this point. Sheryl Crow is back at radio and why not. She’s been through quite a lot as she takes the song “Easy” (WB/WEA) out for a spin. It’s really quite an excellent track and expect some good things ahead from many of our music and program directors. David Bowie is back on the scene and for good reason. One of those reasons may just be a solid single “The Stars Are Out Tonight” (Columbia/Sony). Never count David out as he is always re-inventing himself. His good pal Eric Clapton is also fighting to get back in the game. He won’t have to do much as his new offering in “Gotta Get Over” (Reprise/WEA) is “oh so good”. One of the best new bands in quite some time ala Fun are on the move. With shades of Queen, this outfit has been playing live shows for a dozen years and they are taking their latest single “Carry On” (Fueled By Ramen) to the top of the charts. There has been a stellar buzz over the band Muse for quite some time. That makes it even sweeter that their “Madness” single (WB/WEA) is giving them the added attention they so deserve. Bruno Mars continues to amaze us every time out. He does it again accompanied by just a piano in “When I Was Your Man” (Atlantic/WEA). The new act Walk Off The Earth is really starting to take off “big time”. They have a red-hot Hit on their hands entitled “Red Hands” (Columbia Nashville) that is helping them make their mark. Keep your eyes and ears open for this one my friends. The act Red Sky has got something magical going on at radio. They have had a number of very impressive “most added” weeks for their debut single “Chevrolet Deluxe” (RMS) & now they are making their way up the charts by “leaps and bounds”. Newcomer Tracy Randall also has a good thing going and make no mistake about it. “I Am All You Need” (Lavish) is the gem that many of you are raving about. Alicia Keys continues her winning ways as the song “Girl On Fire” (RCA/RLG) becomes her latest anthem.
Josh Groban is also getting some good attention for her new “Brave” (Reprise/WEA) single. Emeli Sande is the new kid on the block and she explodes with her debut red hot single “Next To Me” (Capitol). Justin Timberlake has teamed up with Jay Z for the lovable single “Suit & Tie” (RCA/RLG). The fabulous Goo Goo Dolls are back with “Rebel Beat” (WB/WEA) and that’s a good thing. Michael Damian is rocking with his brilliant and powerful “Rock My Heart” (Weir Brothers). Bill Songy is breaking his way to the “top of the charts” with his debut Hit “Those Days Are Gone” (Franzia). Marsha Jewell is close to the #1 spot with her excellent “Ragged Angel” (Jewell Lane). Tommy Roe and Melissa Hooker have a good thing going with “It’s For You I’m Me” (Airebelle Records). Matt Backer and Julian Lennon continue their #1 ways with “All That You’ve Wanted” (Right Records). We’ll have more for you next time right here.
