Two superstars score HitPredictors at Top 40 with their newest singles and both were Hot AC HitPredictors first, Kelly Clarksons Catch My Breath and Pinks Try. Pink was a HP at Hot AC last week, and Kelly two weeks ago. For Nicki Minaj, Va Va Voom was first a HitPredictor last week at Top 40, and now this week at Rhythmic. Ciara returns to the charts with Sorry, and it earns HitPredictor honors at Urban this week. And long-time rock hitmakers Matchbox Twenty and Kid Rock are HitPredictors this week at Hot AC and Active Rock, respectively, with their new singles.
These charts show new releases that tested with hit potential prior to airplay, ranked in order of current weekly Mediabase airplay detections.
Every week we track songs before and after they become Hitpredictors, and we call them our Sleepers and Developing & Proven Hits. "Developing Hits" are a select number of songs that show early research potential, or strong upward spin moves at the stations they are played at. "Proven Hits" are songs that show Top 10 research and/or Top 10 spins at multiple key stations in a format.
