Parker McCollum – To Be Loved By You

Rising Country music star and ACM “New Male Artist of the Year” winner Parker McCollum has taken over the top seat on both the Billboard and Mediabase Country charts with his second consecutive #1 single, “To Be Loved By You.” The track immediately resonated with fans and skyrocketed up the charts since its release. In addition to landing his second career #1, Parker also made a childhood dream come true by performing to a sold out crowd at the famed RODEOHOUSTON selling over 73,000 tickets. 

“It’ll be years before I truly look back and realize what happened this week,” says McCollum. “I was nervous that all my hard work and sacrifice wouldn’t be worth it in the long run. Well, after selling out RODEOHOUSTON and having my second #1 I can assure you all—it was damn worth it. Every single last bit of it was worth it.”

JIMMY JAM & TERRY LEWIS – JAM & LEWIS VOLUME 1

Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis are no strangers to the top of the charts. However, this time they’ve returned as artists for the first time in their storied career!

This past weekend, the Grammy-Award winning legendary production duo recently turned artists took over Apple Music when their anxiously awaited debut album, Jam & Lewis Volume One [BMG], captured #1 on the Apple Music Overall Top Albums Chart. It is available here. The record is also on track for an impressive debut on multiple Billboard charts.

At the same time, the latest single “Somewhat Loved (There You Go Breakin’ My Heart),” [with the multi-platinum, multiple Grammy award winning, New York Times #1 Best Selling author and global superstar Mariah Carey] has risen to #16 at radio, according to Mediabase. Of the latter, Billboard wrote, “A subtle piano vibe before a heartbeat and finger-snap beat bubbles up. By the time the chorus kicks in, the song fattens up with a ticking, bass-heavy thump as Carey croons.” It followed on the heels of “He Don’t Know Nothin’ Bout It” [with Babyface], which held a spot in the Top 5 of the Billboard Top R&B Songs Chart for a staggering 16 weeks and has spent nearly a half year in the top 10.

Songs from the album have notably gathered 5 million-plus cumulative streams and counting thus far. Among its blockbuster guest list, Volume 1 also includes Mary J. Blige, Boyz II Men, Toni Braxton, Usher, and more.

Inciting unanimous critical applause, The New York Times attested, “Jam & Lewis Shaped Pop History. They’re Working on Its Future, Too,” and Variety claimed, “This first volume boldly takes the pair all the way back to their flashy, funky time with the Time in its use of Morris Day and Jerome Benton, as well as presenting Mariah Carey, Toni Braxton, Usher and Mary J. Blige in the most dramatic and elegantly soulful settings.” In a four-star review, The Guardian summed it up best as “worth the 40-year wait.”

In other chart news, Jam & Lewis currently hold four entries in the Top 20. As co-writers with H.E.R. on the Double Platinum “Damage.” from her recent #1 album Back Of My Mind, as well as the #8 song on the chart, “Cascade,” with former Mint Condition front man Stokley. Mariah Carey, Babyface, and Stokley’s songs are all affiliated with Jam & Lewis’ Flytetyme/ Perspective label, marking two songs in the Top 10 and three in the Top 20 of the Billboard Adult R&B chart.

Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis have had an unprecedented career as producers, with five GRAMMY Awards, over 100 Platinum certifications, and 16 Billboard Hot 100 Number Ones. They’ve worked with legendary artists including Elton John, Lionel Richie, and Patti LaBelle, composed music for TBS and TNT networks’ NBA basketball broadcasts, as well as the theme to the opening ceremonies of the 1996 Summer Olympic Games. The duo has been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, received an NAACP Image Award, star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame and were recently nominated for a Primetime EMMY Award in “Outstanding Music Direction.”

GLASS ANIMALS FEAT. IANN DIOR – HEATWAVES

GLASS ANIMALS RELEASES NEW VERSION OF “HEAT WAVES” FEATURING IANN DIOR

“HEAT WAVES” HOLDS #1 AT ALTERNATIVE RADIO AND #1 ON BILLBOARD ALTERNATIVE CHART FOR SECOND WEEK

“HEAT WAVES” CONTINUES TO CLIMB SINGLES CHARTS – HOLDS #1 IN AUSTRALIA AND #36 ON SPOTIFY GLOBAL TOP 50

LISTEN TO “HEAT WAVES” FEATURING IANN DIOR HERE

Heat Waves” by UK band Glass Animals was first released in June 2020, ahead of their third album Dreamland, which was put out later that summer. An instant hit with the established fan base, “Heat Waves” paved the way for the album. But this new version, which features rap star iann dior, is the tipping point of a song that has been on a serious journey of growth these last eight months. Listen to “Heat Waves” featuring iann dior HERE.

Since its initial release, “Heat Waves” has experienced a global rise in support that shows no signs of stopping. Having originally resonated with their fans, word of the song quickly spread, and the track started getting healthy traction on radio stations globally. Next came a sync placement on FIFA, which opened up a whole new audience for the band and helped the track begin to climb charts all over the world. “Heat Waves” was then notably crowned number 1 on Triple J’s Hottest 100 – an accolade not given to a UK band since 2009, with previous winners including Kendrick Lamar and Billie Eilish. A third surge in attention came more recently with an organic Minecraft affiliation. YouTuber LoverFella (2.3M subscribers) rebuilt a Glass Animals fan’s base and surprised her with a meet-and-greet with the band, who were waiting inside. Watch it HERE and the Extended BTS HERE. Dave Bayley recently sat down to chat about the track’s creation with Hrishikesh Hirway on the coveted Song Exploder Podcast. Listen to the interview HERE.

“Heat Waves” currently sits at #1 on the Alternative Radio Chart for the second consecutive week, a first for the band in their career. The song also climbed to #1 on Mediabase, #1 on Billboard Alternative Airplay Chart and #1 on Apple Music’s Alternative Genre Chart. The track continues to grow in popularity on the Top 40 Radio Chart (currently sitting at #23) and made its debut on Apple Music All Genres Chart.

Currently “Heat Waves” holds the #1 spot on the ARIA Official Singles Chart in Australia for the fourth consecutive week (the second longest positioned #1 song in 2021 for Australia after Olivia Rodrigo) and is holding strong on Spotify’s Global Top 50 Chart. It has over 2 million global adjusted single sales and 310 million global combined streams (200M on Spotify / 80M in the US). To date, “Heat Waves” peaked at 1.88 million daily streams and has received 14 million views of the video on YouTube. Glass Animals recently hit a new Spotify monthly listener peak of 16.3 million, surpassing the likes of Tame Impala, Gorillaz, The 1975 and The Strokes.

Bursting with all the wonderful tricks that we have come to expect from Glass Animals’ enigmatic front man and producer Dave Bayley, “Heat Waves” is a scorching, bass-heavy pop-trip hit, and the addition of iann dior brings a refreshing new dynamic to the track.

iann dior was born in Puerto Rico and raised in Texas. He found instant success with the first song he ever wrote. In early 2019, he signed a deal with Elliot Grainge’s 10K Projects and established himself as a lo-fi hip hop artist to watch, with early songs like “cutthroat” and “emotions.” iann went on to release “gone girl,” featuring fellow 10K Projects signee Trippie Redd, which provided a perfect lead up to his debut album Industry Plant. In mid-2020, iann dior featured on 24KGoldn’s “Mood,” and the single immediately began to climb the charts, becoming both 24KGoldn and iann dior’s first #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart.

Glass Animals’ album Dreamland entered UK charts on its opening week at #2 (their highest ever scoring chart position, a massive 21 spots above their last album, the Mercury Prize-nominated How To Be A Human Being) and charted inside the top 10 in the US, Australia, New Zealand and Ireland. The album clocked up 160 million streams in its first week of release.

Lewis Capaldi – Before You Go

Lewis Capaldi‘s hit song “Before You Go” finally hit No. 1 Monday on Mediabase‘s Top 40 and Billboard‘s Pop Songs and All Format Radio Songs charts.

Its 36-week climb to the top of Mediabase’s Top 40 and 37-week climb to the top of Billboard’s Pop Songs chart are the longest of both respective lists. The previous record was a 31-week climb up the Billboard Pop Chart set by “Eastside,” the 2018 hit from Benny Blanco, Halsey and Khalid.

Capaldi also joins Mariah Carey, Beyonce and Bruno Mars as the only artists to reach No. 1 with each of their first two entries, as “Someone You Loved” reached No. 1 in Dec. 2019.

“Before You Go” was first released Nov. 2019 on the extended version of Capaldi’s album “Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent.” Since then it has done nothing but grow and spread, even cracking a billion streams.

Capaldi said “Before You Go” is about his aunt who died of suicide, also calling it the most honest and personal song he has ever written.

“It’s about loss, regrets and the fear that we sometimes never understand what someone is going through despite our best want to be everything that person needs,” Capaldi said.

Capaldi picked up a GRAMMY nomination for his song “Someone You Loved” and performed “Before You Go” at the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards where he was nominated for PUSH Best New Artist.

Instead of taking time to sit back and enjoy praise from outlets like Rolling Stone, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times and Entertainment Weekly, the Glasgow-born singer-songwriter is now working on his second album.
