SUMMER OF 2017

No matter where we are or what we do with regards to our favorite music we always seem to remember the “songs of summer”. From the 60’s during the Summer of Love to the current music of today, this time of year brings the strongest connection to us and our music. From the classic “Summertime”, to “Summer In the City”, “Hot Fun In the Summertime” to the more recent “A Little More Summertime”, the titles abound in our music catalog and in our memories. You don’t even really need to use the word Summer in your song title but when all is said and done it most certainly doesn’t hurt. This is also the time of year for recording artists and bands to cash in with Summer Concert action. From the newer artists to the more established, the music audiences come out in droves to attend music events from coast to coast. Even artists and bands that haven’t had a radio hit in years from Queen, to the Eagles, Crosby Stills and Nash among others can still pack an arena or outdoor venue. This is also the time to sell lots of merchandise from shirts to posters, mugs and just about everything under the sun. Make no mistake about it, this time of year is the real bread winner for most artists and bands. Independent artists also take full advantage of this time of year as well. In addition to building their stock at radio it also means some road trips in the van, truck or vehicle. With the weather prime for travel, many bands and artists are also hitting the road for everything from station visits to a free concert in the park. They too have the opportunity to cash in and sell merchandise and other items as they go from town to town. This is the one time of year that you can pull this off without travel fears. Many of our music and program directors also love this time of year. Some have events and if you are an artist looking for something productive to do, radio stations are almost always looking for music talent. This is especially true if you have a song out at radio and need that extra bit of love and attention. Stations do quite a few remotes during this time of year and are always looking for promotional items to treat their live audiences. Some may even have concerts in the local park or Summer events that could use some original music talent. We’re not suggesting that you just drop in unannounced but if you set things up in advance it could mean a good time for all. If you missed the beat on the Summer of 2017 have no fear, there is still hope for things in the future. Artists and bands that really want to take full advantage of this time of year actually start planning now for next year. It could mean releasing your CD, album and or single this Spring with the hopes of doing a tour to follow. That way you can plan with your promoter or local booking agent to make things go far more professionally than just showing up without a plan. Radio programmers are always willing to consider a station visit or event but it all has to be planned well in advance to make it work for all parties. If the cost of a Summer event or tour seems to be just too much to deal with, one suggestion is to take a smaller version of what you do out for a road trip. Many upstart Country artists for instance take an unplugged version of what they do on the road and many times that becomes a smart move. If you have talent many times a stripped-down version of what you do is even a better way to sell what you are doing musically. You can take that small unplugged version right into a radio station control room and give a local audience a real taste of what you are all about. Many times this can even help to build your audience by allowing for the music to come across real and without over production.

Planning is the real key to having a successful Summer in music. Take the time now to map out your travel plans and set your goal for taking full advantage of the best time of year to get out there. New Music Weekly magazine is here to help you in every way and we’ll let our radio stations know you are coming to town. Happy Summer of 2017 to all.

We had the pleasure of seeing Carly Pearce at this year’s CRS. There she performed her debut single “Every Little Thing” (Big Machine) that has given her the shot she has so deserved. Carly Pearce was born in Marion, Indiana. She dropped out of school when she was 16 and moved to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee in order to perform at Dollywood five times a week, in addition to contributing to bluegrass music compilation albums. She moved to Nashville, Tennessee when she was 19 and signed a developmental deal with Sony Music Nashville in 2012, which was ultimately unsuccessful. In 2016, she was a featured vocalist on Josh Abbott Band’s “Wasn’t That Drunk”, which charted in the top 40 of Country Airplay. Pearce also toured with the band to perform the song, including a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The song’s success led to her working with songwriter and producer Busbee on her solo debut single “Every Little Thing”. After this song received airplay on Sirius XM’s “The Highway” channel, Pearce gained a contract with Big Machine Records, which released the single to country radio on February 22. The song also received a music video, which features Pearce performing the song live at Brown Owl Studio. We will continue to follow the career of rising star Carly Pearce here on the pages of New Music Weekly and what a thrill to see here as part of the Big Machine family during their CRS lunch event. This is our special Summer issue and there are a great many new songs and artists breaking here on our charts making this a very memorable one indeed. Please continue to support the many artists that are truly making their musical mark here during the Summer of 2017.

Julia Michaels is making quite the name for herself. Her debut single “Issues” is already a top charter and now she’s taking the follow-up “Uh Huh” (Republic) out for a spin and our panel is all over this one big time. Lorde is back at the format and she just keeps plugging along even without support from former BFF Taylor Swift. The single “Perfect Places” (Lava/Republic) is the jam that many of you are loving. We’ll see how this plays out in the weeks to come but so far so good for her. The super pairing of French Montana and Swae Lee is turning out to be quite an event. “Unforgettable” (Bad Boy Entertainment/Epic) is making some major noise out there and won’t be denied. It appears that something special is going on here deserving of your immediate attention. DJ Khaled w/Rihanna & Bryson Tiller “Wild Thoughts” (We The Best/Epic) is on fire and make no mistake about that. This track is pulling in massive numbers from coast to coast and could be a big solid #1 in the weeks to come. Bruno Mars has another good thing coming and we’ll help spread the word. His latest and greatest in “Versace On The Floor” (Atlantic) continues to show just how good he really is. I’m also pretty happy about the latest jam from a super group of talented artists and company as Calvin Harris teams with Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry & Big Sean for the epic track entitled “Feels” (Fly Eye/Columbia). This powerhouse team will not be denied and if the early numbers are any indication, I’d get on this one pretty quick. Fifth Harmony has joined with Gucci Mane for a real solid entry. “Down” (Syco/Epic) is the jam that their mentor Simon Cowell should be pretty happy with and the early results are staggering. I’m also really loving the new Post Malone and Quavo track. “Congratulations” (Republic/ Universal) is the cut that many of our music and program directors can’t seem to get enough of. It might be time to give this one attention. Sam Hunt has a good thing going and make no mistake about that. “Body Like A Back Road” (MCA Nashville) is a solid crossover that hit #1 at Country and now the other formats are going gaga for Sam. Clean Bandit and joined forces with the uber talented Zara Larson for the single entitled “Symphony” (Atlantic). Make no mistake about it, this one could go all the way. I’m also loving the new Machine Gun Kelly and James Arthur jam ala “Go For Broke” (Bad Boy/Interscope). I’m not alone as a good many of my music pals feel the very same way about this masterpiece. Shawn Mendes continues to rule the younger generation from coast to coast. From You Tube star to radio his new single in the ever amazing and ever powerful “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” (Island/UMG) is really and truly everything a radio programmer needs. Niall Horan is also making it all look quite easy. His new “Slow Hands” (Capitol) is so good that you just can’t put it down. Newcomers Al & Trey are getting plenty of attention at the format. Their single entitled “Anyway” (Tide Productions) started at Country much like Sam Hunt and is crossing formats by leaps and bounds. Make sure to give that one a spin around the block. Newcomer Garrett Young continues to amaze at Top40. His debut single “Do You Hear My Cries” (West Coast Collective) has been a solid winner from day one and it just keeps getting better. The Lane Project continues to build believers with “Any News For Me” (Violet). John Ratliff and his band Receptacle are rocking the format once again. “Love Is Magic” is the jam that seems to be everybody’s favorite. The biggest pairing we’ve seen to date at Top40 is DJ Khaled with Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance The Rapper & Lil Wayne. They have joined forces for the single “I’m The One” (Epic) and what a monster this is. I’ll have more for you on the monsters of Top40 next time right here. For now try to keep cool during the Summer of 2017 and I’ll be back for more next time right here.

Andy Grammer has teamed up with Lunch Money Lewis for a real AC40 winner. “Give Love” (S Curve/EMI) is the single that is getting raves from our panel of music and program directors. You may want to give this one some extra attention. I’m also happy to report that Bruno Mars has yet another winner on his most talented hands. The single “Versace On The Floor” (Atlantic) is solid from start to finish and you can expect a big fast track for this single all the way to the very top of the AC40 charts to be sure. Imagine Dragons continue to be one of the best bands out there in radio today. Their current work of art in “Believer” (KIDinaKORNER/Interscope) is as good as anything out there. They continue to deliver top notch music and have become very innovative on promoting their music. In support of their new album the band recently surprised a fan by showing up at his home in Florida to perform a free concert in his living room. Top that? Lady Gaga may have been down for a moment but she is far from out. Her latest offering in the most memorable “The Cure” (Streamline/Interscope) has mounted a tremendous amount of support from programmers across the USA and in record time. I’m also happy to report that the ever so talented Jennifer Hudson continues to build her fortunes. First brought to us by American Idol, she takes her latest single “Remember Me” (Epic) out for a spin and the results are quite amazing. Give this one some additional attention please. Newcomer JoAnna Michelle moves into the world of pop radio with the debut of her single “Too Sophisticated” (Twin Angel). It’s already picking up some strong “most added” action along with being a hit on the Billboard Dance charts. Train is also out and about at the format. “Drink Up (Columbia) is their latest and it’s another gem from one of America’s premiere bands. We’ll see how this one plays out in the coming weeks but so far so good. Ryan Chernin has what could be the Summer song of 2017. His brilliant “Look Right” (Inhuman Records) single picks up a solid number of stations and it’s already charting big time. Miley Cyrus is back in action and make no mistake about that. “Malibu” (RCA/RLG) is moving fast and furious on the charts from AC40 to Top40 giving this talent another notch in her belt. Charlie Puth is keeping pace with her as his new single moves past the pack. “Attention” (Artist Partners/Atlantic) is the jam that is keeping him in the eyes and ears of the entire music industry. This is one talented bloke with a very bright future indeed. Chuck Murphy has teamed up with his band & Big Coyote for a real Summer hit. Everybody is singing the praises of “Free To Be Free” (One West Music) and that should be of no surprise as this is just another masterpiece for Chuck. Al & Trey continue their bright crossover venture as their debut single “Anyway” (Tide Productions) breaks free. It’s already a solid #1 at Country. Mathew Ryan is getting a jump on the action as his “Close Your Eyes” (Ind) moves past the crowded field. Eileen Carey is back with another gem. All systems are go as her new and powerful “Good Bad Girl” (Rolley Coaster) blows past the competition. Our old pal and solid music icon Tom Maclear is back with a gem in “Movin’ Back To Texas” (Meg) that you may want to get on sooner than later. One of our favorites in Kenneth Roy beaks it all down with “Let Your Love Come Down” (Physico). I’m happy to report that John Ratliff and his band mates Receptacle have a super Summer hit single on their hands. “Love Is Magic” (Ind) is the track that continues to get raves from our panel of music and program directors. Good going boys. The Lane Project are moving to the top with “Any News For Me?” (Violet). Garrett Young is as strong as ever with “Do You Hear My Cries”. Dianne Meinke has had quite the run with “Secret Lover” and now takes “Lemonade Freshly Squeezed” out for a drive. I’ll have more for you next time right here. Happy Summer 2017!

Remember the last time you went to a chain restaurant to celebrate someone’s birthday and the restaurant’s staff substituted a restaurant’s unique hand clapping “happy birthday” song for the traditional song? Did you give any thought as to why they didn’t use the traditional song?

Well, consider one further fact: A reported $2,000,000 in licensing fees have been paid annually to Warner Music Group who claims copyright ownership since a 1988 acquisition of several musical holdings which included the well known 120 year old “Happy Birthday to You” song. However, many dispute Warner’s copyright claim, arguing that the song is in “public domain”, available to anyone to use a musician, at some point, the city of withoutIffeeyou’re payment.

Universal has $31 million Prince deal declared void in court Universal’s $31 million deal with the Prince estate has been declared void in court. Judge Kevin Eide has ruled that the deal was a conflict with Warner Music’s long ongoing rights with the catalogue. Warner released every Prince album from his 1978 debut ‘For You’ through to ‘Chaos and Disorder’, his 18th album in 1996. In February, Universal announced “a multi-year agreement with the Estate of Prince Rogers Nelson and NPG Records Inc., effective immediately, that grants UMG exclusive licensing rights to the iconic artist’s Grammy-winning NPG recordings, including a library of 25 albums and his highly anticipated trove of unreleased works”. The statement also included “In addition, beginning next year UMG will obtain U.S. rights to certain renowned Prince albums released from 1979 to 1995”. That is the era of the 18 Warner albums. Universal claimed they were lured into the deal under the impression that the Prince estate had rights to the titles under Warner Music Group and that the company would acquire those rights. Judge Eide concluded, “As previously noted, this Court believes that the Estate must proceed in a cautious manner to preserve the assets of the Estate. While the rescission of the UMG Agreement may certainly be seen as proceeding with a lack of caution, the Court believes that the other option of long and potentially expensive litigation while tying up the music rights owned by the Estate makes the other option more treacherous.” Advisor for the Prince estate L. Londell McMillian said, “There was no wrongdoing on our end. We stand by our work.”

Kid Rock: ‘My Senate run is no hoax’

Kid Rock has hit back at claims his planned run for Senate is a publicity stunt. The 46-year-old musician, real name Robert James Ritchie, was thrown into the mix earlier this year (17) as one of the Republican contenders for Michigan Democrat Debbie Stabenow’s Senate seat in 2018, and confirmed his plans to run earlier this week. However, his announcement was met with some cynicism, especially as his website kidrockforsenate.com redirects to a Warner Bros. Records page when you click on any of the political merchandise for sale. But the Born Free hitmaker dismissed claims his new-found political career is just a promotional stunt, penning a lengthy post on his website entitled “Once Again the Press Is Wrong”, in which he addressed the allegations. “I’ve got 15 days from my announcement to file paperwork with the FEC (Federal Election Commission)!” he began in the blog post. “Second, I’m not signed to Warner Bros!!! - which

simple fact-checking would have revealed,” he wrote. “I have recently worked out a unique deal with BMG, Broken Bow, CAA and Live Nation to release music ON MY TERMS. Like politicians write books during their campaigns, I’m planning on putting out music during mine and IT ALL STARTS TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT. “It’s not a hoax, it’s a strategy and marketing 101! No plans for an album or anything else that has been the usual norm in the music business OR politics.” A representative for Rock told Billboard.com that while the musician’s deal with the Warner Music Group came to an end after he released 2015 album First Kiss, the organisation remains his merchandise company - which explains the redirect. Rock also responded to his potential opponent, Democratic Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow, in the blog, after she sent out a fundraising email on Wednesday saying: “We don’t know if this is real or just a publicity stunt. But after Donald Trump’s surprising win last year, we need to act fast”. “Senator Stabenow and I do share a love of music, although probably not the same kind,” Rock wrote. “I concede she is better at playing politics than I am so I’ll keep doing what I do best, which is being a voice for tax paying, hardworking AMERICANS and letting politicians like her know that We the People are sick and tired of their bulls**t!”

Michael Jackson animated halloween show coming to CBS

The music of Michael Jackson will be the basis of a new one-hour animated special coming this October to CBS. Michael Jackson’s Halloween is created and produced by Optimum Productions, the Michael Jackson company now owned by his estate and will feature the voices of actors Christine Baranski, Kiersey Clemons, Alan Cumming, George Eads, Brad Garrett, Lucy Liu, Jim Parsons and Lucas Till.

Guns N’ Roses cancel Jerusalem tour after terror attack

Guns N’ Roses have scrapped a sightseeing trip to Jerusalem ahead of a Saturday night (15Jul17) concert in Tel Aviv following a terror attack. Axl Rose and his bandmates were planning to visit the holy city on Friday

(14Jul17), but the rockers’ walkabout plans have been derailed by a shoot-out between terrorists and police. Reports suggest three Palestinians were shot and killed as they opened fire on police officers outside the holy site of Temple Mount. Two Israeli cops also lost their lives in the early morning incident on Friday. Temple Mount was closed following the deadly shoot-out for security reasons, and all activities at the site were suspended. Guns N’ Roses aides felt a Jerusalem city tour following the drama would be insensitive and cancelled plans. The band’s Saturday night concert in Tel Aviv is also making headlines for the wrong reasons after a decision to start the show earlier upset local religious leaders, who claim Jewish fans would be forced to choose between making it to the gig on time or observing the Sabbath, which will now end as Guns N’ Roses take to the stage. Rose and his bandmates have also been criticised by their peers for refusing to boycott Israel on their ongoing world tour. Stars like Roger Waters and Sonic Youth founder Thurston Moore have called on musicians to stay away from the country until leaders make peace with their Palestinian neighbours. Meanwhile, the rockers aren’t the first musicians who have had to scrap plans to tour the holy sites of Jerusalem in recent weeks - Britney Spears had to cut short a sightseeing tour of the ancient city on 2 July (17) when she was mobbed by fans ahead of her first gig in Israel on 3 July (17).

Ed Sheeran makes cameo appearance in Game of Thrones

Ed Sheeran’s cameo role in Game of Thrones has been revealed after the singer appeared in the first episode of the new season of the cult drama. It was leaked Ed would appear on the show back in March (17), but few people expected him to show up in season seven’s premiere, which aired in America on Sunday night (16Jul17). He appeared as a minstrel in a scene with real-life superfan Maisie Williams, whose character Arya Stark stopped him as she was riding through a forest. Arya overheard Ed’s character singing and said, “It’s a pretty song, I’ve never heard it before,” prompting his woodland crooner to respond, “It’s a new one.” Fans had mixed responses to Ed’s appearance in the episode, taking to Twitter to share their opinions. “Hot take: Ed Sheeran making an appearance on Game of Thrones was the worst thing I’ve ever seen on the show in it’s history,” one wrote, while another tweeted, “Nothing takes me out of a fantasy world like a random Ed Sheeran appearance #gameofthrones”. Another poked fun at the lines in the episode, tweeting: “Arya: That’s

I sing a song and then she goes, ‘Oh, that’s a nice song,’ and I go, ‘It’s a new one’, and then there’s other lines.” Meanwhile, all the excitement surrounding the new season of the show created big problems for cable channel HBO’s website bosses as fans overloaded the HBO Now site during the East Coast U.S. premiere while attempting to stream the drama. The website was back online during the final half of the show, but many devotees complained about buffering and slow uploads, with some even tweeting photos of their frozen screens.

Aaron Carter accuses brother Nick of ‘kicking me while I’m down’

Aaron Carter has blasted his brother Nick for sending him a supportive tweet rather than phoning him after he was arrested over the weekend (15-16Jul17). The I Want Candy singer was arrested on charges of driving under the influence (DUI) and possession of marijuana, with reports suggesting he was caught with less than one ounce of the drug and drug-related objects by Habersham County police officials. He allegedly refused a breathalyser test at the scene and was taken into custody. Following the scandal, Aaron’s 37-yearold Backstreet Boys star brother Nick took to Twitter on Sunday to write: “To my brother: I love u no matter what & if u feel the need to reach for help, I am here and willing to help you get better.” However, the message didn’t go down too well with Aaron, who questioned Nick’s motives for making such a public statement of support. “If my own blood (Nick) truly cared about my well-being, why wouldn’t he call me directly and have a conversation instead of making this about him through a very public forum?” Aaron told Entertainment Tonight via his spokesperson. “That’s not cool at all to use me for his PR and kick me while I am down.” The comments come as Aaron’s representative also hit back following the DUI, saying that the singer felt he had been targeted by police due to his fame. “The video from Auto Zone will prove that Aaron was not in a moving vehicle while

arrested and charged with a DUI,” the spokesperson said in a statement. “He feels his ‘celebrity’ was targeted and an attorney will be retained in this matter.” Meanwhile, a video has emerged that Aaron made just five days before his arrest, in which he bragged about not having any DUI arrests. As he walked through a car park in Tampa, Florida, with girlfriend Madison Parker, who was also charged with possession of marijuana and obstruction of law enforcement officers following the incident, Aaron said: “You won’t catch me getting any DUIs!”

Justin Bieber pulled over for using phone while driving

Justin Bieber has reportedly been fined for using his phone while driving. The What Do You Mean? singer has had several run-ins with the law in the past, and was in trouble again after he was pulled over by police officers in Beverly Hills on Saturday (15July17). According to editors at TMZ, the 23-year-old was spotted with his phone in his hand. It is unclear as to whether Justin had been sending a text or if he was chatting to someone at the time, however both are considered driving offences. The police stopped the popstar, who was driving his Mercedes G-Wagon, and issued him with a citation for using his phone while driving. Police officers told TMZ that the Canadian star had remained “calm” and very “cooperative” when they had questioned him. The singer had accepted the fine and had left without contesting the decision and did not cause a fuss. On average a fine for driving whilst using your phone is $162 (£124). It’s not the first time Justin has been cautioned for a driving related incident. In January 2014 the singer was arrested in Miami Beach on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI), driving with an over six month expired license, and resisting arrest without violence. Later that year the singer was arrested again and this time charged with dangerous driving and assault, after a collision between a minivan and an ATV near his hometown of Stratford, Ontario.

John Legend looking forward to expanding family

John Legend is looking forward to expanding his family in the future. The Ordinary People singer is married to model and TV personality Chrissy Teigen, with the couple first meeting on the set of a 2007 music video. John and Chrissy are parents to one-year-old daughter Luna Simone, and are now thinking about expanding their brood. “I can’t wait for more children,” 24

he told U.K. Red magazine, adding that he will be much more prepared the second time around. “My wife going through that was a learning experience for both of us, for sure, but it made me see up-close-and-personal how challenging it is to bear a child, to be a new mother.” The Hollywood couple have been open about their experience as new parents, and Chrissy’s battle with postpartum depression. John admitted that he didn’t understand the condition at first, but is pleased he and his wife sought out professional advice and strategies to get past the difficult period. “I thought it was something I’d done wrong. I worried I hadn’t been the best husband or father I could be, but I started speaking to people I trusted, and realised it was a natural reaction to giving birth that her body was making,” he said. Speaking about marriage and relationships, one of his most popular songs is All of Me, which he had dedicated to Chrissy. And the 38-year-old star explained that the romantic ballad has universal appeal and has tugged on the heart strings of all sorts of people that he meets. “I’ve lost count of the number of times people have asked me to play it at their wedding. Or be a guest at their wedding. People I’ve never met! It’s very flattering,” he smiled.

Miley Cyrus can’t recall aspects of child star career

Miley Cyrus struggles to recall aspects of her childhood career due to the overwhelming “pressure” she was under. The actress and singer rose to fame when she landed the lead role in Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana in 2006, before launching her debut studio album Meet Miley Cyrus, the soundtrack to the show’s second season, the following year. Miley has since released four more records and undergone several shifts in persona, but it wasn’t until recently that she took the time to reflect on how her huge success at a young age has affected her. “There’s so much I don’t remember about being a child entertainer because it was so much to keep in my brain,” she told U.S. Harper’s Bazaar magazine. “It’s like anything when you are in it. I didn’t realise how much pressure I was under and how that shaped me until, like, this year.” While Miley’s sexually explicit behaviour generated widespread controversy while promoting her fourth album Bangerz in 2013, she also pointed to a double standard within the entertainment industry whereby she was put in full hair and make-up and told what to wear by “a group of mostly older men” when she was only 11 years old. In her latest reinvention, which comes in the lead up to the release of her upcoming album, the 24-year-old is rocking a relaxed hippy-inspired aesthetic. And she isn’t bothered by how her latest evolution will be perceived. “People get told that it’s a bad thing to change,” she said. “Like, people will say, ‘You’ve changed.’ And that’s supposed to be derogatory. But you are supposed to change all the time.” In addition to her music, Miley is also busy promoting her Happy Hippie Foundation, which focuses on youth homelessness, particularly amongst the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community. And she considers herself to be a role model for young people in the way that she isn’t afraid to talk about her identity and sexuality. “Because I got my t*ts out before doesn’t make me less of a role model,” she said, going on to repeat her recent decision to quit smoking marijuana. “Just for now... To quote the wise Justin Bieber, ‘Never say never.’ But right now I want to be clear.”

Hudson Moore, the singer/songwriter who was recently named one of the – 10 New Country Artists You Need To Know by Rolling Stone, has signed with APA Nashville, it was announced today by Steve Lassiter, Partner and Head of Concerts for APA Nashville. Hudson, whose Spotify and Pandora streams have exceeded 3 million while his “Sand in the Bed” video accrued nearly 3 million views on YouTube, is known for his energetic and engaging live performances. The multi-instrumentalist was recently chosen for CMT’s Artist Discovery Program, and he has played alongside country superstars such as Alan Jackson, Rascal Flatts, Martina McBride and Hunter Hayes. song’s video. The promo dethroned Psy’s Gangnam Style as the most-watched video on YouTube on Monday (10Jul17), and now Puth tells Billboard he had to fight to be a part of it. Furious 7 movie executives commissioned rapper Wiz Khalifa to come up with a song for the film and he worked with Puth and DJ Frank E to create the hit. The studio chiefs loved the emotionally-charged track, which would serve as a tribute to the late Paul Walker at the end of the movie, but they didn’t want a young unknown to even sing on it - even though Puth co-wrote it. “I wasn’t supposed to be in the video and I wasn’t supposed to be on the song,” he tells the outlet. “I was only supposed to be a writer on the song. I was a brand new artist, I wasn’t cool enough to be part of the franchise yet, I wasn’t big enough, but I proved everybody who was close-minded wrong. Everyone on my record label stuck beside me and my management. “I’ll never forget I ended up calling them from around this big conference table on the phone, and they were explaining the reasons why it was going to be sung by this artist and blah, blah blah... I said, ‘That’s great. Your movie comes out in a week and I’m not gonna give you the song’. And I hung up the phone and when I said that miraculously I was in the music video.” All grudges were set aside when the video and song became massive hits - with almost three billion views on YouTube - and Charlie insists he’s “actually really good friends” with some of the people who tried to keep him off the track. “I’ve worked on projects with them since then and everything is all good now but, you know, I had to prove myself.”

Psy still in shock about Gangnam Style success

Pop star Psy still can’t believe how successful his Gangnam Style hit became five years after he first dropped the catchy summer tune.

expectations for his song as he released it and admits, “I didn’t expect anything global”. “I just did what I’ve done before,” he adds. “I was a Korean singer and whenever I released an album, the purpose of it was just to make good songs in Korean, and hopefully to make a hit song that people in Korea could enjoy. That was everything. “Before Gangnam Style, I had already done music and been a singer in Korea for more than a decade, since 2001. Similarly to other previous singles, I made energetic music and funny music along with funny dances, funny videos, and funny lyrics. I honestly didn’t mean anything that much (sic).” Psy didn’t realise he had an international hit on his hands until he received a phone call from Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun: “He was really interested in the song and video, and me,” Psy recalls. “He thought he could make it huge in the U.S. As soon as I got the call, I Googled him. When I found out who he was, I was so shocked and felt that maybe the song could become something. That was the first moment I thought it was different.” Unfortunately, the Gangnam Style video wasn’t able to hold its position as the most-viewed promo on YouTube for the song’s fifth anniversary - it was dethroned by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth’s See You Again earlier this month (Jul17). But Psy isn’t complaining because his success has turned him into the unlikely poster child for Korea’s K-Pop movement. “In Korea, there are so many muscular, handsome, pretty K-poppers and I’m kind of chubby, honestly,” he adds. “Personally, I felt a little bit guilty representing my country’s music. Right now if somebody is going to do a better job than me from now on, he or she has to be less chubbier than me (sic).”

Simon Cowell pays for Britain’s Got Talent contestant’s back surgery

show with dance troupe MerseyGirls and revealed the show might be her last chance to dance due to needing or curvature TW surgery ARTIST to treat her scoliosis, SINGLE of the spine, which has left her in serious pain. The group made it to the finals, at which point Simon approached them backstage and told the schoolgirl that regardless of whether they emerged victorious on the programme, he would foot the bill for her operation, which will involve having screws fixed to a cord inside her back. “Simon came and spoke to us backstage,” she told the Liverpool Echo. “He said he was paying for it and I couldn’t believe it. “He didn’t have to do it and he has changed my life. There are no word to thank him for how grateful we are. It’s just unbelievable. It does not feel real.” Her mum Kate added that Julia would have been unable to dance again if she had back surgery in the U.K. but in the U.S., she has more hope of being able to perform again. “We are in a very privileged position because of Simon,” Kate said. “We want to say a massive thank you to everyone who voted for girls and Simon and everyone who has supported them. The wave of support has been unbelievable.” Julia sent Simon a T-shirt which read, “I paid for Julia Carlile’s Scoliosis treatment”, and a letter thanking him for his gesture. Julia and her family flew to New York on Sunday (16Jul17) and will then head to New Jersey, where the operation will take place.

Kesha addressed ‘hard truths’ on new album

Kesha challenged herself to address “the hardest thing I could possibly find to say” on her new album

Rainbow. The embattled singer is gearing up to drop the record on 11 August (17) - her first since Warrior in 2012. LABEL Since that album, things have changed dramatically for Kesha, who has been involved in a legal battle with former producer Dr. Luke for the past few years. Addressing the legal issues and how she used the album writing process as therapy, Kesha told U.S. radio host Elvis Duran: “You heal what you can and keep going. “(On this album I pushed myself to write) the hardest thing I could possibly find to say and the thing that I didn’t want to be true or I didn’t want to say and it would just bring me to tears to even think about saying out loud in a room full of co-writers. And that’s when I knew that’s the very thing I have to say, that’s the very thing I have to sing.” She credits her songwriter mother Pebe Sebert for encouraging her to address her darkest emotions through the medium of music, explaining that she told her to “write songs about it” and “write the truth and that will always be better than any other story you could make up”. As well as her catchy tunes, Kesha has become known for her eccentric way of dressing. But the singer insists she doesn’t care what anyone else thinks of her appearance. “When I see myself on those Worst Dressed lists all the time I just give it the finger and I’m like, Bob Dylan thinks I look good,” she said. “I want to spread good vibes, so if that’s the role I’m in now and if this song is helping people heal then I like that. I don’t think everything that I do is going to be perfect or flawless. I definitely would love to help people, I love if they can relate to my music then that’s beautiful.”

Garbage today released their new single “No Horses”. The song is available now. All of the band’s profits from sales and streaming of the single will be donated to the International Committee of the Red Cross through the end of 2018. “’No Horses’ is basically a dream fueled anxiety attack. A dark imagining of the future in which a presiding regime values only profit and success leaving no room for tiny beautiful things, small gestures and great beasts,” shared Garbage singer Shirley Manson on the song. Earlier this month, Garbage released their autobiographical coffee table book, THIS IS THE NOISE THAT KEEPS ME AWAKE via Akashic Books. The book includes never before seen photographs of the band as well as pieces written by each of the four band members. Throughout their upcoming tour, Garbage will be visiting a select number of indie record stores and bookstores across the country to sign copies of the book. A complete list of upcoming signings can be found below.

Kelsea Ballerini appears to be the darling of Country radio these days. She has a new single out and about entitled “Legends” (Black River Entertainment) that should keep her above the pack. She also appears in a national commercial that gets lots of play. Luke Combs is building his fortunes at Country radio and make no mistake about that. His “When It Rains It Pours” (River House Artists/Columbia Nashville) will no doubt take him even higher into the Country music arena. Watch for some big weeks ahead for this masterpiece as Luke continues to build strong at radio. Shania Twain is back at the format and that’s always a welcome event. Her latest single in “Life’s About To Get Good” (Mercury Nashville) is really as “good as it gets” and we wish her a safe and sound return to the jungle. Little Big Town continues to build their fortunes at Country radio. “When Someone Stops Loving You” (Capitol Nashville) is the latest from this super talented outfit and a good many of our music and program directors agree. It’s always great to see Gary Allan back at radio as “Mess Me Up” (EMI Nashville) builds. Kenny Chesney continues to be the king of Country and make no mistake about that fact. He’s got “All The Pretty Girls” (Columbia Nashville) out and about and Summer would not be complete without a cool jam from Kenny. Lee Brice continues to amaze us with his endless talent. “Boy” (Curb) is the latest and greatest from him and what a great track. Granger Smith is also building fans by leaps and bounds. His latest release in the ever strong “Happens Like That” (Wheelhouse) picks him up an extra few notches. DK Davis is back at Country radio and that’s always a welcome sight. This former New Music Weekly Award winner and top-notch performer takes his new “Born To Be Blue” (Route 66) out for a spin and the results are quite exciting. It’s great to have DK Davis back at radio. Recording artist DA Cole is building quite the name for himself at Country. “Comin’ Home To Country” (Durango Music) is the latest from DA and it comes to us from the always brilliant James Williams so keep your eyes and ears wide open for this one. Once you give it a listen you just want to hear it more and more. Brad Paisley is always finding new ways to excite the format. His new and adventurous “Last Time For Everything” (Arista Nashville) does the trick and more. Jake Owen is getting set for Summer as his new “Cowboy’s Blessing” picks up a few. Susanna Rich has a good thing going and she wants the Country world to know all about it. “I’m Enough” (Ind) is all you really need. Nu Blu continues to warm the hearts and minds of radio programmers from coast to coast. “A Fool And Her Heart” (Voxhall) is the jam that is making it happen. You may want to spend a little more time on this one. Recording artist Tony Watson is also getting raves from our ever brilliant panel. “Lady Is My Own” (Star 1) is his latest and this one deserves your immediate love and attention. We’re big here on supporting the Indie artists as you know so make sure to put this one in for a few spins around the block. Eileen Carey is back at the format and is really kicking up some dust here. Her latest is in the form of the master gem “Good Bad Girl” (Rolley Coaster) now #1! Make sure you move this one up a few notches as it holds at the top of our Country charts. Don Faires continues to rock on as his new and powerful “Evangeline” (Hologram) takes flight. Al & Trey have made quite the name for themselves at the format. “Anyway” (Tide Productions) is the debut single from this powerhouse duo. It’s closing in on the top spot of both our Country Top50 and Indie chart so a major congrats goes out to them. It’s Summer in Nashville so come see me over at Legends Corner for a drink and a song or two. I’ll have more for you on the greatest Country hits in the USA next time right here. Until then have a Great Summer of 2017 and enjoy all of this great Country music.

This is our Best Of 2013…so far issue. Throughout this musical visit you will see many Indie artists rising to the top of our charts and a lot of the music perfect for your Summer playlist. You may want to consider being on our Future Hits volume #43. This compilation will get your song to “all of radio” and all tracks will be also serviced digitally through Airplay Access. Contact us this week and make yourself a part of music history. Are you up on These Hearts? Ryan Saunders, vocals, Kyle Colby, guitar/vocals Isaiah Folk, drums, Daryl Van Beek, guitar and Tyler Rice, bass make up this super red hot band. The recent release of the lyric video for “Miserable” has ignited their fans anticipation for their forthcoming sophomore album “Yours To Take” available this month. The new album can be heard live on the band’s headlining album release tour beginning in Joliet, IL. The band’s sound is a combination of honest, refreshing, spirited pitch-perfect harmonies with dynamic and emotive breakdowns. Carrying the torch lit by iconic Victory bands A Day To Remember and Taking Back Sunday, These Hearts has arrived and you read and hear about them first right here at New Music Weekly. The New York based indie rock band Born Cages is set to release their Sidelines EP via Razor & Tie. The band will hit the road this summer as well. Born Cages new EP was produced by Jon Kaplan (Walk The Moon, Augustana) and Oliver Straus (Arctic Monkeys, Matt & Kim) at Mission Sound in Brooklyn, NY. The band is finishing up their debut full length album to be released later this year. The New York City based Born Cages formed in 2011. Within one year the young band had already released an EP, opened two sold-out shows for Guns N’ Roses and shared stages with such bands as Gold Fields, Mother Mother, and Ludo. The band has had music played on Q104.3 in New York and recently recorded a session at the Gibson NYC showroom that premiered on Purevolume. They were also featured on a large billboard in Times Square as part of a Toshiba promotion. Born Cages is Vlad Holiday (lead vocals/lead guitar), Amanda Carl (keyboards/backing vocals), Steve Kellner (bass guitar/backing vocals) and Dave Tantao (drums). John Tejada has a new exclusive mix for Halocyan Records entitled “Somewhere” via Pitchfork. Have you been following Halocyan Records? This is a global dance brand and record label launched by Dimitri Fergadis, an acclaimed musician and founder of the LA-based experimental electronica label Phthalo Records. Halocyan is dedicated to representing not just the present and future of electronic music, but also its rich history. Halocyan believes that a strong sense of historical roots is an essential launching pad for bold voyages into the unknown. New York City-based retro songstress Joanne Weaver sets out to the Dominican Republic this month to shoot her new music video for “Nature Boy”, the latest single off her debut album Interstellar Songbook which she released in June of last year. The concept album is a collection of Joanne’s unique, psychedelic renditions of eight classic standards from the 40s, 50s and early 60s and is available on iTunes and CD Baby.
