First up, Travie McCoy had a great solo debut and now he’s back with his group, Gym Class Heroes and their upcoming album, The Papercut Chronicles. The first single teams Travie and Maroon 5 with their frontman and “The Voice” winning coach Adam Levine. “Stereo Hearts” is this weeks HitPredictor at Mainstream Top 40.
Planet Pit is the 6th album by Pitbull and it features all-star producers like Dr Luke and David Guetta. “Rain Over Me”, featuring Marc Anthony, is the 3rd single from the album. Hesperia, California’s New Boyz have a 3rd single from Too Cool to Care called “Better With The Lights Off,” and it features Chris Brown. “Lighters” by Bad Meets Evil is from the album Hell: The Sequel. It’s one of the hottest singles at Mainstream Top 40 and this week it’s a Rhythmic HitPredictor.
Gavin Degraw’s next album Sweeter will released on September 6th, and will feature tracks co-written with a number of artists. The first single “Not Over You” was co-written and produced by Ryan Tedder, and it’s now a Hot AC HitPredictor.
Speaking of Ryan Tedder, he’s had a busy year. He’s produced the Mainstream Top 40 HitPredictor for Gym Class Heroes and he’s working on new material due in 2012. His 4th single from One Republic’s Waking Up album, “Good Life” is a HitPredictor this week at Mainstream AC.
Brooks and Dunn were one of the biggest Country duo’s of all time, and both members are successful solo acts. Even though he had singles out in the early 80s, before Brooks and Dunn formed, Ronnie Dunn just released his debut, self-titled, solo album. “Cost of Livin” is the 2nd single from it, and it’s a Country HitPredictor this week.
After six years without a new studio album, Sacramento Alternative rockers Cake recorded Showroom of Compassion in 2010. The album is grounded in Cake’s unique style of alternative rock, combining droll, often esoteric lyrics, rife with word play and syncopation, catchy distorted guitar riffs, complex bass patterns, Moog, and prominent use of trumpet. “Long Time” is the 2nd single from that album and it’s a HitPredictor this week at Alternative.
Before Breaking Benjamin, Ben Burnley was a solo performer. He later came up with the band’s name, “Breaking Benjamin” after doing a performance of a Nirvana cover. At the end of the performance, Ben knocked over and cracked a microphone he had borrowed. The owner of the microphone walked onto the stage and said, “I’d like to thank Benjamin for breaking my f**ing microphone.” Originally created for the video game Halo 2, and later appearing on the band’s 2004, So Cold EP, “Blow Me Away” now has a remix version slated to be included on the band’s Greatest Hits album, Shallow Bay: The Best of Breaking Benjamin. It’s an Active HitPredictor this week.
