This week’s New HitPredictors:
Grammy Award winning Dutch music producer Nick van de Wall, aka Afrojack has already been featured in a #1 song, Pitbull’s “Give Me Everything”, and now he has his own first, big hit in the US with “Take Over Control”, featuring Eva Simons. It’s both a Mainstream Top 40 and Rhythmic HitPredictor this week.
French DJ David Guetta’s latest hit featuring Usher was written by both of them, along with other hitmakers including Taio Cruz and it’s a Rhythmic HitPredictor this week.
Kanye West and Jay-Z released as the fourth single from their collaboration album “Watch the Throne”. N** In Paris is also memorable for including dialogue from the underrated Will Ferrell/Jon Heder ice-skating comedy Blades of Glory, and it’s an Urban HitPredictor this week.
Charlottesville, Virginia is memorable for several reasons; it’s home to the University of Virginia and it’s also the hometown for the Rock band Parachute, whose “Kiss Me Slowly” is this week’s Hot AC HitPredictor.
Journey formed almost 40 years ago and their iconic, “Don’t Stop Believin” is one of the most played(and most loved songs) in Rock history. This week their latest hit and message of hope from Eclipse, “Anything Is Possible” is a Mainstream AC HitPredictor.
Almost a decade after the death of frontman Bradley Nowell, Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh formed a new band with singer and guitarist Rome Ramirez called Sublime with Rome, and the 2nd single from their first album together, “Take It Or Leave It, Yours Truly” became an Alternative HitPredictor this week.
The 2nd single off the 3rd studio album, Tailgates & Tanlines by Leesburg, Georgia’s Luke Bryan is this week’s sole Country HitPredictor.
“Make It Stop” is the 2nd single from Chicago Rockers Rise Against’s sixth studio album Endgame. The album deals with “the end of humankind as we know it,” having lyrics addressing world events and politics. Adelitas Way are back with “The Collapse”, the 2nd single from their 2nd album Home School Valedictorian. Both songs are Active Rock HitPredictors.
