HITS Daily Double

As we enter the heart of summer, the hits are pouring in. Notably, the product flow for Top 40 has significantly picked up over the past few weeks, paving the way for several songs to break through and make their run for “Song of the Summer.”

One of those is Tommy Richman’s “MILLION DOLLAR BABY” (PULSE/ISO Supremacy), which has Concord’s Scrobe team practicing their dance moves. The track has been in the Top 10 Most Added column at Pop for five consecutive weeks, pulling in 148 stations as it climbs to the Top 15 with big spin increases coming in that should propel it to the Top 10 shortly. Mark Adams, PD, Z100/VP CHR Programming iHeartMedia, says, “Jumping quickly from social media to radio in record time, ‘MILLION DOLLAR BABY’ has exploded internationally and in the U.S. and is achieving new benchmarks almost weekly. It is the kind of song that feels designed to boom out of your radio on a hot, lazy summer day, which is appropriate for one of the top contenders for the Song of the Summer.”
