BEST OF 2015

It’s hard to believe that this year is almost over. It seems that years move along faster than ever in this fast charged world in which we live. 2015 saw the start of the presidential campaign for 2016 and brought along more drama that a pack of soap operas. We also had our share of domestic and international events that kept us on high alert. Through all of the dramatic elements it was the music that once again kept us from going completely insane. The music of 2015 had all the elements of what the year reflected but touched much more on the emotional and sometimes tender moments of the past twelve months. From the music landscape there were bold and beautiful moves from Mainstream to Country all captured via the weekly charts here at New Music Weekly. Many of the new breaking records and artists of the day actually got their first shot at chart activity right here. From the major label artists to the strong independents much of what was going on musically in 2015 found a safe haven here on the pages of the magazine and on our charts and research. What we found was a year filled with exciting and energetic music. Taylor Swift continued to be the darling of the year in pop music. No longer a threat at Country via her own choosing, the Swift racked up more back to back #1 singles than any other among the pop music crowd closing things out with her top charter in “Wildest Dreams”. Perhaps it was that very title that showcased what’s been going on with this super talent. The year closed out with the surprise yet well anticipated released from Adele. Her return single in “Hello” is exploding from Top40 to AC and it seems that this was just the shot radio needed to close out a year that was truly a mixed bag. Country was alive and well and make no mistake about it. The core artists from Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood from the Zac Brown Band all brought home #1 singles and more. Even a few newcomers in Chris Janson to Old Dominion got their shot at the top and kept things hopeful for many newer artists. The year closed out with a strong and powerful single from Thomas Rhett in “Die A Happy Man” a song that will find its way well into 2016. Indie artists abound in Country from Joey Canyon to Chuck Murphy and the field of indie artists can be viewed in this week’s charts. Our Best of 2015 issue gives us all the opportunity to take a look at the records, artists and labels that had a most banner year. This issue sets the template for our annual New Music Awards. Over the next month we will be polling our radio stations and their programmers on the acts that had the strongest impact this year. That will help us determine the nominations and they once again be made available to the general public and our subscribers for votes on-line. This keeps it all fair and gives the fans of artists the opportunity to get in on the action. This is also a good time to thank our radio stations, music and program directors for their contribution towards the weekly charts. Many of these good people have other jobs at their stations in and around the community. The fact that they take the time to report and help many artists and bands regardless of how strapped they are for time and funds is a true and so much appreciated accomplishment. Without their assistance we would not be able to provide the services that we do here on a weekly basis. It’s also that time to thank the many artists, labels, mangers and publicists that come to us each and every week with information and requests. The support from all of you has been overwhelming and again is critical to what we do here at New Music Weekly. We have found this to be a total team effort and the fact that many of you turn to us for information and support gives us hope and keeps this music machine going. We will continue our “New Music Revolution” just as long as we continue to get the support from the music industry that is so critical in helping to put this all together. Please check all of the artists out in this issue from the charts to the advertisements as they all deserve your support. We wish all of you’re a very Merry Christmas and lets get set for an amazing 2016.

Hunter Hayes is one of our favorite Country and crossover artists here at New Music Weekly. He was born on September 9, 1991, in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana. Hunter began his musical career at age two, when his grandmother gave him a toy accordion. At four, he began making appearances locally and on national television, including Maury, Rosie O’Donnell Show, and the Nickelodeon game show Figure It Out, where he performed “Jambalaya (On the Bayou)”American Songwriter writes that “Hayes received his first guitar from actor Robert Duvall at age six.. At thirteen, he appeared on America’s Most Talented Kids, a show hosted by Dave Coulier; he performed the hit Hank Williams song, “Hey Good Lookin’”. In 2008, he moved from Breaux Bridge to Nashville, Tennessee and signed with Universal Music Publishing Group as a songwriter. In 2010, co-wrote “Play” for the Rascal Flatts album Nothing Like This. In September, he was signed to Atlantic Records Nashville and began working on what would become his major-label debut. Hayes appeared as the opening act of ten dates of country star Taylor Swift’s Speak Now World Tour throughout the summer of 2011 and concluded his leg of the tour in St. Louis, Missouri. In April 2011, he had gone on his own radio tour where he debuted songs that would appear on his debut album. His debut headlining tour was the Most Wanted Tour; the first leg of the tour began in Beaumont and ended in San Bernardino. From January to February of 2012, Hayes was the opening act on the Rascal Flatts “Thaw Out” tour. This year his single “21” has become a most popular track at Country radio & we will continue to follow-up on all the works of the great Hunter Hayes in 2016. 3

Ariana Grande is on fire and back to her hit making ways. After a slight bump in the road she gets it all together with the new “Focus” (Republic/Universal) single. This one should put her back on top where she belongs. Her self-management ways need to be held at bay and she’ll be well on her way to recovery. The pairing of Nico & Vinz with the talented Kid Ink & Bebe Rexha is helping to get them back on top as well. “That’s How You Know” (WB/WEA) is actually a real solid song and should be getting more attention that it’s been getting as of late. With so much traffic out there at radio, it’s easy to have a great song get lost in the mix. We really hope that does not happen with this musical gem. Fall Out Boy has teamed up with go getter Demi Lovato for a real strong entry. “Irresistible” (Island/UMG) is the jam that we are talking about. It’s such a different take on a pop hit but for some odd reason the pairing really works. Please give it a shot and you will get some rather strong results. Justin Bieber continues his streak and talk about rebounding a struggling career. The Bieb has really turned it all around and with the release of his new #1 album featuring the new single “Sorry” (RBMG/DefJam/UMG) only good things are happening for him. We wish him the best and keep up the good work kid. Shaggy has teamed up with PitBull & Gene Noble for a real Top40 smash. “Only Love” (Brooklyn Knights/RAL/Sony) is the jam that is really getting raves from many of our music and program directors. This one has all the makings of a huge hit and with most of the Shaggy singles, look for it to stay on the charts for a record number of weeks. Those wacky Chainsmokers have paired with Rozes for what else could it be but “Roses” (Columbia). This studio and club mix gang comes up with some rather crazy stuff and this one is no exception. Should work great on your morning shows and will get reaction. The Rudimental and Ed Sheeran duet is fast becoming a music anthem. “Lay It All On Me” (Major Toms/Big Beat) is such a great cut and this one you just can’t get out of your head. I also really like the new one from 5 Seconds Of Summer. Never thought I’d be in their corner but their “Hey Everybody!” (Capitol) is so catchy that you can’t put it down. They have a fan base that is monster big and that should keep this track going all the way. Adele is back and make no mistake about that. “Hello” (Columbia) puts her back on top where she belongs. Radio from Top40 to AC is all over this jam like a bad dream. Make no mistake that she is back to take it all and the new album will be the biggest ever. Adam Lambert is back at the format with a real excellent single. “Another Lonely Night” (WB/WEA) is one that you need to spend a little time with but once it sinks in you can’t put it down. Kelly Clarkson also has a new track that is getting big praise and early spins. “Piece By Piece” (RCA/RLG) is the one and make sure you power this one out big time. Chuck Murphy is having a very impressive run with his debut single “How Many Times” (One West). Make sure he’s on your list when it comes to spins and moves. Abuss is also having a solid run with their debut track entitled “Poor Days” (Daybreak). What a great cut this is. Royalush made a huge impact this year with “Shot For America” (High School Records). Brandy Moss Scott also had one banner year with “Bye, Bye, Baby” (Heavenly Tunes) and there is much more to come from her in 2016 to be sure Coldplay has returned to the fight and are they ever ready for it. “Adventure Of A Lifetime” (Parlophone/Atlantic) has to be one of their best and this one is powerful at best. Also getting raves is the Uptown Band featuring Erich Cawalla & Jenifer Kinder. “I Can Breathe” (Coast) is the single that many of you are really digging on. Since this is our Best of 2015, many of the artists on the charts this week should be held in consideration when it comes to our New Music Awards. We will be polling a good many of our stations and their programmers over the next 30 days and that will have an impact on who makes the list. I’ll be taking a little time off so if we don’t run into each other please have a very Merry Christmas and a big time Happy New Year. More next time but it will be for 2016.

Coldplay is back at the format and as expected they are being met with open arms. The new “Adventure Of A Lifetime” (Parlophone/Atlantic) makes them quite relevant for what’s going on at radio and it appears that the band will be back on track with this gem. Kelly Clarkson has another winner on her hands to close out 2015. There is no doubt about it that her new “Piece By Piece” (RCA/RLG) will be around well into 2016. This is one of her best to date and watch for some big weeks ahead at radio for this gem. Adele is back with a vengeance. Her delightful “Hello” (Columbia) comes to radio and becomes one of the most played new singles I can remember. You hear this monster record just about everywhere you go. The chorus is ever so strong making this one of her best to date. Adam Lambert is back at radio and many of our music and program directors are just thrilled. “Another Lonely Night” (WB/WEA) is the gem we are talking about. Our Nikki Thunder from KCHE (Cherokee, IA) is already slamming it so hard you would think she’s a major Adam Lambert fan. Oh, I almost forgot – she is! Halsey is hitting it hard at the format and make no mistake about that. “New Americana” (Astralwerks/Universal) is the jam we are talking about. This artist is quite interesting and we will keep watch to see just how strong this single grows in the coming weeks. Elle King has an anthem in the works and it’s pretty plain and simple. “Ex’s & Oh’s” (RCA/RLG) has fast become a real monster record and her label knows it. Watch for this to rank as one of the very best in 2015. Also keep in mind that many of the artists you see on the charts this month are all potential contenders of our 2015 New Music Awards. Tracy Chapman is back at the AC format and that is always a very good thing indeed. Her new “Stand By Me” (Rhino/WEA) is fast becoming a solid favorite among many of our music and programmers and for good reason – it’s just that good. Rob Thomas is getting plenty of love and attention at radio and why not. New latest in “Hold On Forever” (Atlantic) is as strong as anything he’s had out in the past. He’s also been on the road promoting this one extra hard and is seems his efforts have been paying off, Selena Gomez is getting plenty of love from the AC format. Her new “Same Old Love” (Interscope) is a real winner and it’s great to see what a credible recording artist this little Disney girl has turned out to be. Zella Day is also getting some good solid spins at the format. The single “Hypnotic” (P&B) appears to be building some solid steam by leaps and bounds. We’ll see how it all plays out in the weeks to come but from what we’ve been seeing and hearing about this artist, so far so very, very good. Jimmy White is back at radio and that’s always a good thing. His new “I Wish You Peace” (828) has ranked #1 “most added” for several weeks now and this is fast becoming a solid Holiday anthem for him. Joey Canyon also has a real winner on his hands with “Life Without You” (Glo Dot). The song started at Country and crossed over to this format in record time. Keep your eyes and ears open for this one to be sure. The Uptown Band w/Erich Cawalla & Jenifer Kinder is off to a rocking start. “I Can Breathe” (Coast) is the gem that you need to pay extra special attention to in the weeks to come. Michael Rapp is back with his Holiday gem in “Christmas Is For Kids” (Stage Too) & radio just loves it all over again. Newcomer John Ratliff is getting massive support for his new single entitled “U” (Ind). He’s a super guy and we could not be more thrilled for all of the support he is getting at radio. I’ll have more for you on the AC hits next time. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

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?

ALL ROADS

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.

IS WARNER/CHAPPELL EXTRACTING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN UNLAWFUL LICENSING FEES?

AC/HOT AC REPORTERS

by: John Loggins, Esq.

Defendant Warner claims the 1988 acquisition includes valid copyright ownership, and that due to the 1962 Copyright Act extension, and then the 1998 Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act, its ownership interest does not expire until 2030! Therefore, until the court issues its decision (expected this month or next) the debate continues between two groups of thought as to whether or not the Happy Birthday song still enjoys (or for that matter, ever enjoyed) copyright protection. If the court decides Warner does not have valid copyright interest, it will potentially owe millions of dollars in recently demanded fees. However, the court could uphold the Warner/Chappell copyright claim.... or, decide that it is not appropriate to make a decision without a trial..... to be scheduled in 2016? 2017? So don’t light those birthday candles and sing until you receive the court’s decision. The present issue arose when a Jennifer Nelson, who was making a documentary about the Happy Birthday song, faced a demand by Warner (still claiming copyright ownership) to pay a $1,500 licensing fee if she used the song. Warner’s copyright claimed fees encouraged others to initiate a suit against Warner/Chappell seeking a court decision invalidating any copyright claim to the song, putting the song in public domain. Warner claims the 1935 copyright registration (which changed hands but eventual was part of Warner’s 1988 acquisition of musical holdings) is valid. But the lawsuit claims: “...defendant Warner/Chappell boldly, but wrongfully and unlawfully, insists that it owns the copyright to Happy Birthday to You...and has extracted millions of dollars in unlawful licensing fees...” Warner/Chappell firmly disagrees. In an effort to have the court make an immediate decision in advance of any trial, both sides have asked the court for a Summary Judgment decision (that is that their side has such over-powering proof of its position that the judge can rule in their favor without waiting to conduct a trial). Each side presented their evidence in a court hearing last week.

The plaintiffs claim that copyright protection ended prior to the 1935 registration of the song, emphasizing that simply because a copyright is registered does not necessarily mean the registrant has valid copyright protection.. The plaintiffs argue that the 1935 registration is illusory...and point out that the 1909 copyright law (in effect at that time) required material published prior to 1923 be accompanied by copyright ownership notice. Smoking gun? Plaintiffs recently located 1922 songbook which includes a copy of the Happy Birthday song with no accompanying copyright notice. Therefore the Plaintiffs’ anti-copyright position is that the song’s copyright protection ended prior to Warner’s claimed 1935 copyright.

Scott Weiland Dead At 48 Former Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver rocker Scott Weiland has been found dead. The 48 year old’s body was discovered on his tour bus in Minnesota on Thursday night (03Dec15), prior to a performance with his band The Wildabouts. The show was cancelled without explanation, and fans were offered refunds. The sad news was confirmed in a post on Weiland’s Facebook.com page, which read: “Scott Weiland, best known as the lead singer for Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver, passed away in his sleep while on a tour stop in Bloomington, Minnesota, with his band The Wildabouts. At this time we ask that the privacy of Scott’s family be respected.” Guitarist Dave Navarro was among the first to respond to the news, tweeting, “Our friend Scott Weiland has died. So gutted, I am thinking of his family tonight.” He has since deleted the post. Weiland and his band the Wildabouts are currently on tour and were scheduled to perform in Nevada and California later this month (Dec15). Details of the rock star’s death are hazy, but he struggled with substance abuse issues throughout much of his career. He cofounded Stone Temple Pilots in the early 1990s and enjoyed hit albums such as Core and Purple and singles like Vasoline and Interstate Love Song. In 2002, Weiland was recruited as the frontman for rock supergroup Velvet Revolver, formed by ex-Guns N’ Roses stars Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum. The band released the albums Contraband and Libertad, before Weiland was fired in 2008 following a series of substance abuse issues and a public falling out with his bandmates. He rejoined the group for a charity show in 2012, and he recently told Alternative Nation there were plans for a full reunion that were scuppered by Slash’s then-wife Perla Hudson. “We did a show together, and there was talk about us getting back together,” Weiland said, “but Perla, Slash’s ex-wife, kind of put the kibosh on everything... I thought, at the time, we would get back together and do a tour.” Tributes have started hitting social media, with former Nirvana star Krist Novoselic tweeting, “Really sorry to hear about Scott Weiland”, and Ryan Adams wrote, “RIP Scott Weiland Universe, please take care of him.” Stars such as No Doubt’s Tony Kanal, Blink-182 star Travis Barker, actress/rocker Juliette Lewis, Vanilla Ice and Joe Perry also offered up thoughts and prayers, with the Aerosmith guitarist tweeting, “Extremely saddened to have read Scott Weiland passed. Such a gifted performer. My thoughts are with your loved ones, friends & fans.” Weiland’s wife Jamie also confirmed the tragic news in a brief conversation with the Los Angeles Times, telling

the publication, “I can’t deal with this right now. It’s true.” The couple wed in 2013, two years after meeting on the set of the rock star’s music video to accompany his festive song I’ll Be Home For Christmas. Weiland was born Scott Richard Kline on 27 October, 1967 in San Jose, California. His name was changed to Weiland after he was adopted by his stepfather, David Weiland, when he was five. He was married three times - his first wife was Janina Castaneda, his second - and the mother of his two children, Noah and Lucy, was model Mary Forsberg. She filed for divorce from the rocker after he was arrested on domestic violence charges in Las Vegas in 2001. The charges were deferred after the couple reconciled and agreed to undergo counselling. Weiland’s autobiography, Not Dead & Not for Sale, was released in 2011.

Coldplay Confirms Super Bowl Gig

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has confirmed the band will be entertaining fans during the 2016 Super Bowl half-time show. Fans of the British rockers started to get excited on Thursday (03Dec15) when rumours swirled the Shiver singers would be headlining the coveted sports show. Now the band, the NFL and Super Bowl half-time show sponsors Pepsi have all released the news. “We are so excited and honoured and thrilled to be playing the half-time show,” frontman Chris Martin said in a video. “It’s going to be wonderful and I hope we see you there.” Chris added he was really nervous about the gig, which has seen the likes of Beyoncé and Katy Perry take to the Super Bowl stage in recent years. “This is the greatest moment in our band’s life,” Chris beamed. “We are going to give it everything we have.” The Super Bowl takes place on 7 February (16) at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, marking the sporting event’s 50th year. The band’s artistic director Phil Harvey also admitted his nerves, and has teased fans with the promise of some special guests. Chris’ ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow may well be one of the surprise guests, as she makes an appearance on the band’s new album, A Head Full of Dreams. The pair parted ways in March 2014 after ten years of marriage, but have remained firm friends. Gwyneth’s actress mother Blythe Danner recently spoke to AARP The Magazine about her daughter’s mega fame, revealing she never expected success to happen so quickly. “It was just so darn fast, but she came into the world like that – like this meteor,” Blythe gushed of her Oscar-winning offspring. “I think it’s worrisome when fame happens to your child so early. Bruce (Paltrow, Blythe’s late husband) and I, having had careers more modest, never had that kind of scrutiny Gwyneth had,

and we never had that kind of pressure. You hope they’ll handle it, and I think Gwyneth handled it quite well, considering all the stuff we have to deal with now – the press and the things that aren’t always wonderful.”

New UNICEF Ambassador Pink: ‘I want to use my big mouth for good’

Pink’s daughter Willow inspired her to join forces with UNICEF. The 36-year-old singer announced she has been named the latest ambassador for the United Nations Children’s Fund during an appearance on Good Morning America on Monday (30Nov15). During an interview with America’s People magazine about her reasons behind joining forces with the organisation, Pink said it was her daughter, four-year-old Willow with husband Carey Hart, who inspired her to get involved and start using her “big mouth” for good. “The fire was lit, obviously, because I’m a mama,” Pink told People. Pink’s first role as ambassador will see her act as the spokesperson for the organisation’s new initiative Kid Power. The campaign is aiming to inspire young people to become healthier by using an activity tracking bracelet and app. Both on and off stage, Pink is an incredibly active woman, and is hoping to help motivate others to get on the move. “Statistically, one in four kids in the U.S. are inactive. And I’m all about fitness and health and positivity. One in four kids, globally, are malnourished. So UNICEF has found a way, with Kid Power, to combat both problems at the same time,” Pink continued. “You’re getting kids super motivated to move their feet, and you’re also creating, global citizens, where they care, and they’re able to help other kids around the world.” Pink has already embarked on a trip abroad with UNICEF, having visited Haiti back in July (15). The time away, which involved her visiting a health centre for mothers and young children, made the Just Give Me a Reason singer realise just how inspirational children are. “They’re so ready to fix their world,” she said. “They just keep going. Kids are so resilient. I sat with this little four or five-year-old. And she just held her hands on my face and sang to me. She’s living in a one-room shack with her entire family and hardly any food, and she’s taking the time to sit with me and sing with me. The kids give me the most hope.”

The Ellas recently shot a music video for their “Bakin’ Cookies” single from their Merry & Bright cd, and the fun clip premiered on the wildly popular site, The Boot. That same night, the trio will have a collective dream come true, when they make their debut appearance at the Grand Ole Opry.

titled album went straight to No.1 last month. Vance and Sheeran are long-term friends who have frequently toured together and collaborated on their most recent albums; Sheeran sings on Vance’s single Guiding Light from his 2013 album Joy Of Nothing, while Vance cowrote Tenerife Sea and Afire Love from Sheeran’s 2014 multi-platinum album X, and wrote Make It Rain, the Sheeran-performed series closer to FX’s hit drama Sons of Anarchy. Ed Sheeran said of the signing: “I am very happy to reveal Foy Vance as my second signing to Gingerbread Man Records. Foy’s always been an artist I’ve admired since meeting him in 2006. We’ve become touring buddies over the past few years and he’s actually out in Australia with me at the moment on the final leg of my ‘x’ tour. His vocals are going to blow you away and I can’t wait for you all to hear the record.” Vance’s first album for Gingerbread Man Records is pencilled for release in the Spring of 2016. “I feel a deep sense of peace signing to an artist led label, not least of all because the artist in question is our Ed,” says Vance. “Every time I’ve turned around in the last few years he has had my back.” Originally from Bangor, Northern Ireland, but now living in the Scottish Highlands, Vance won the won the inaugural Northern Ireland Music Prize in 2013 for his critically acclaimed second album Joy Of Nothing. Earlier this year he co-wrote and provided the vocals on Rudimental’s hit single Never Let You Go.

Sinead O’Connor Receiving medical Care

Rucker is also a founding board member of Young Entertainment Professional’s (YEP). 22

Singer Sinead O’Connor is receiving medical assistance after reportedly overdosing. The Nothing Compares 2 U star sparked concerns for her welfare on Sunday (29Nov15), when she sent out a message on Facebook.com claiming she had overdosed in a hotel room in Ireland. In the post, the 48 year old accused her family of betraying her and abandoning her as she deals with a sick child and recovers from a recent hysterectomy. “There is only so much any woman can be expected to bear,” she writes on the social media site. “What was done to me this week was appalling cruelty. By my husband, my family..., by my son, Jake, and by (former partner) Donal Lunny... After everything I’ve been put through and been forced to go through alone... And punished for having to go through since I had the surgery on August 26th. Or since (my son) Shane became unwell in March. This week has broken me. “The withholding of my babies from me without any sound reason by their fathers, Frank and Donal, and by Jake and the rest of my family, is a horrific set of betrayals. And has been going on since I had my surgery. The last two nights finished me off. I have taken an overdose. There is no other way to get respect. I am not at home, I’m at a hotel, somewhere in Ireland, under another name.” The singer goes on to insist she is posting the message because it is the only way her family will know what happened to her, and she accuses them of not caring if she dies. “I could have been dead here for weeks already and they’d never have known, because apparently I’m scum and deserve to be abandoned and treated like s**t just when I’ve had my womb and ovaries chopped out and my child is frighteningly sick,” she continues. “I’m such a rotten horrible mother and Person, that I’ve been alone. Howling, crying for weeks. And been told by them all to go f**k myself. I’m invisible. I don’t matter a shred to anyone. “No one has come near me. I’ve died a million times already with the pain of it... Strangers like me.. But my family don’t (sic) value me at all. They wouldn’t know if I was dead until weeks from now if I wasn’t f**king informing them now. well done guys, you’ve finally got rid of me. Sorry the penny didn’t drop sooner. I’m an idiot. “When you planned to get me away from

my babies, did you plan for me losing my mind over it? It being the final straw? For how you’re gonna explain why I died? Make sure you tell the truth... My children don’t care if I live or die anyway. Neither do their dads. Everyone is better off. Never, ever do this to a woman again.” According to Facebook.com, O’Connor has been battling with her son, Jake, and ex-boyfriend Lunny over the custody of her underage children, and has accused them of illegally keeping her from seeing them. The singer explains they took her children from her after she became depressed following her surgery in August (15) and she also lays blame on authorities in the country for placing her children in the care of their fathers. It is unclear what O’Connor’s condition is, but she has reportedly been found “safe and sound” and is being treated.

Adele has fastest selling album of 2015

With just one month to go until the end of the year, 2015 has shaped up to be an interesting year for music sales. Adele did better than everyone selling three times faster than Justin Bieber at number two. By comparison to last years fastest seller from Taylor Swift, Adele’s ’25’ has outsold Swift’s ‘1989’ first 10 days two to one. Only 15 albums sold more than 10,000 copies in the first week so far during 2015. As a guess, there will probably be one more to add with the new Coldplay album ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ coming out on Friday. Here is a list of the 20 Fastest Selling Albums of 2015.

Erykah Badu:

‘What Iggy Azalea does is definitely not rap’ Erykah Badu threw a pointed jibe at Iggy Azalea at the Soul Train Awards on Sunday night (29Nov15). The 44-year-old singer was hosting the event and opened the annual ceremony with a monologue which saw her armed with a flip phone. Erykah, who is working on a phone-centric mixtape and has just released a track with André 3000, was seen chatting to celebrities and inviting them to the awards. But one star didn’t earn an invite to the ceremony, with Erykah saying on the phone: “Who is this? Iggy Azalea? Yeah, hey... no, no, no, you can’t come, because what you doing is definitely not rap!” Iggy has yet to respond to the barb, with her last Twitter post coming on 1 November. However, she does have a history of rows on the social media site. She was previously involved in an argument with Azealia Banks, who accused her of not caring about “black issues”. Having nicknamed the singer ‘Igloo Australia’, Azealia said she was particularly upset by Iggy’s nomination for Best Rap Album at the Grammy Awards. “The Grammys are supposed to be awards for artistic excellence… Iggy Azalea’s not excellent,” Azealia told New York radio station Hot 97 back in 2014. “When they give these Grammys out, all it says to white kids is, ‘You’re great. You’re amazing. You can do whatever you put your mind to.’ And it says to black kids, ‘You don’t have s**t. You don’t own s**t, not even the s**t you created yourself.’ And it makes me upset.” Iggy then responded to Azealia’s comments on her own Twitter page, writing: “You created your own unfortunate situation by being a bigot and don’t have the mental capacity to realise yet. Probably never will. “Now! rant, Make it racial! make it political! Make it whatever but I guarantee it won’t make you likable (sic) & THATS why ur crying on the radio.”

as part of her 1989 World Tour, and during her stop in Sydney on Saturday (28Nov15), Taylor came face-to-face with 12-year-old Jorja Hope, who was diagnosed with a condition that causes progressive inner-ear hearing loss. According to local newspaper the Maitland Mercury, Jorja’s first concern upon receiving the life-changing new was that she wouldn’t be able to hear Taylor sing. Soon after, Jorja’s twin sister Choloe launched an online campaign called #HelpJorjaMeetTaylorSwiftSydney, and it caught the attention of DJs at Sydney radio station Nova 96.9, who helped set up a meet-and-greet with the star before they attended the concert. After meeting her idol, Jorja told the Maitland Mercury, “She was very, very amazing and very pretty. I didn’t expect her to be as tall as she was... It was very, very fun, we danced all night.” “Taylor Swift, she is my idol,” Jorja added. “She does get a lot of people who say she’s bad, but she keeps on going.” This isn’t the first time that the 25-yearold has gone out of her way to help one of her adoring fans. Back in January (15), she sent a cheque to a fan for $1989 to help pay towards her student loan fees, while in December last year (14), the thoughtful singer wrapped and delivered Christmas presents to a number of mega-fans. Taylor reportedly stalked their social media accounts to find out what each fan really wanted for ‘Swiftmas’ and sent along a personalised letter.

Diana Ross Invites Daughter To Perform On Stage

Diana Ross proudly invited her actress daughter Tracee Ellis Ross to show off her singing skills during her concert in Las Vegas earlier this month (Nov15). The Motown legend wrapped a nine-show engagement at The Venetian Theatre in Sin City on 21 November (15), and her kids, including Black-ish star Tracee, son Evan and his wife Ashlee Simpson and daughter Chudney Ross were all in attendance to cheer on their mum. But Tracee was stunned when her superstar mother unexpectedly asked her to step onstage to sing her rendition of Lady Sings The Blues, and the actress admits she was frightened to join Diana in the spotlight. “I think the last time my mom asked me to sing I was 5 or 6 years old,” Tracee writes on her website. “I swear at first I thought she said Evan (my brother, a singer, who was also there). But then I realized she said my name, and before I could think, I was walking toward the stage! “Now, I’m not afraid of much. I used to be afraid of everything. I was shy as a child. Probably tough to believe, but it’s true (see pics). I still get nervous all the time but I never let it stop me and I’m certainly not afraid of performing. But, somehow, by the time I stepped onto the stage it was as if I was 6 years old again! “There’s something about singing….. It’s no joke trying to do that as the child of DIANA ROSS, let alone while standing by her side on stage. Plus, when you’re nervous, it’s hard to hear, it’s hard to breathe, and it’s hard to be present. These are all important things when you are singing!” “There is no way to describe the pressure, the fear of what it feels like to allow my voice to be heard as Diana Ross’ child... All my life I have witnessed her as Diana Ross the icon and Diana Ross the mother, and I have experienced her seamlessly bridge this incredible dichotomy with grace and ease. She is a nurturing and fierce mom, intimate and ancient, in a setting that isn’t meant to support mothering: on stage with the whole world watching.” In the video Tracee shared on her site, she can be seen walking on stage stunned as her mum hands her the microphone and hushes the crowd by saying, “This is important!” The crowd cheered Tracee on as she hugged her 24

mum before leaving the stage. “My favorite part was me burying my head into her shoulder,” Tracee concludes. “It has been ages since I’ve hidden so deeply in my mother’s embrace and it was awesome.”

LeAnn Rimes talks ‘earthier’ Christmas album

LeAnn Rimes embraces her soulful side on new album Today is Christmas. The 33-year-old singer is most famous for her work in the country music industry. However, as a huge fan of the festive season, LeAnn has ploughed everything into giving herself a new sound on her latest offering, which was released last month (Oct15). While the Christmas tracks are vastly different from LeAnn’s usual fare, the singer feels the record is very representative of the stage she has reached in her life. “I’ve grown up. I think I’m just at a different point in my life with a different sound,” LeAnn told Taste of Country magazine. “It’s kind of a soulful, earthier kind of sound but it’s also we throw it back with a bunch of horns. It’s a really cool record. The last year I came out with an EP of Christmas songs and this year we decided to record a full record.” LeAnn is stepmother to husband Eddie Cibrian’s two sons Mason and Jake, whose mother is Eddie’s ex-wife Brandi Glanville. With her own little family, LeAnn is more than excited about the upcoming holiday season. But the promotional activities for Today is Christmas has made LeAnn feel like she has been celebrating the festive occasion for the past 12 months. “I love Christmas. It’s been Christmas for me all year long, which is totally fine!” LeAnn joked. As well as a host of Christmas classics, the album features two songs that LeAnn co-wrote. LeAnn will be further promoting the record on her Today is Christmas tour, which kicks off in Tacoma, Washington, on 4 December (15).

Nicole Scherzinger ‘worries friends with new romance’

Nicole Scherzinger is reportedly being warned by friends not to rush into her new romance. The former Pussycat Doll, 37, began dating Formula 1 whizz Lewis Hamilton in 2007 and after a turbulent few years, the couple seemingly split for good in February 2015. Nicole is now said to be enjoying the company of tennis player Grigor Dimitrov, 24, who was involved with Maria Sharapova until July (15). While the blossoming relationship appears to be going well, those close to the singer are said to be worried about the pace at which things are moving. “Nicole really likes Grigor and loves spending time with him, but her friends are wondering whether she still has feelings for Lewis and have warned her to take things slowly,” an insider told Britain’s Closer magazine. “Nicole and Lewis were together for such a long time and they’re still in touch so her friends don’t want her to get hurt.” It’s thought Nicole and Lewis, 30, called things quits because the racing car driver wasn’t ready to settle down. He’s since been linked to the likes of Kendall Jenner and Rihanna, but earlier in November (15) it seemed as though he and Nicole had rekindled their spark when spotted out together in London. This isn’t thought to be the case though, and Lewis is said to be having a hard time coming to terms with his ex-girlfriend moving on. “He’s already told Nicole it will kill him to see her with someone else, let alone a younger sportsman,” the insider added. “Nicole doesn’t want to hurt his feelings but she can’t put her life on hold. He won’t settle down and, without the promise or marriage and babies, she’s not going back.” Luckily Nicole has recently escaped the rumoured drama and has dazzled fans with stunning photos of herself while holidaying in the Maldives.

has frequently posted pictures of her changing figure on her various social networks. She added in a recent interview that she couldn’t wait to welcome her daughter and embrace motherhood. “I think it’s time. I think I’m in that stage in my life where I need this,” she told America’s People magazine. “I’ve done everything in my life pretty much career-wise and … I’ve been in a happy marriage for 15 years.

GRAMMYAward-winning MCA Nashville country star Vince Gill revealed via NPR his new album Down To My Last Bad Habit is set for release on February 12. As part of the announcement, NPR has an exclusive first-listen of Gill’s lead single, “Take Me Down,” featuring Little Big Town. Gill wrote/cowrote, co-produced and is a featured musician on all 12 songs on Down To My Last Bad Habit. “Forty years into this, it’s still as much fun as it’s ever been to play music,” notes Gill. “At the end of the day, what I get excited about is doing something I haven’t done before. When I record a song, I feel successful if I’ve accomplished something new.” Down to My Last Bad Habit marks Gill’s first solo album since 2011’s Guitar Slinger. In 2013, The Oklahoma native partnered with famed steel guitarist Paul Franklin on Bakersfield as a tribute to the “Bakersfield sound” of Buck Owens and Merle Haggard. With 20 GRAMMYAwards to his credit, Gill has emerged as country music’s most eloquent and impassioned champion. He is both a world-class guitar picker and a wide-ranging songwriter whose compositions earned him entry into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2005 and the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2007. Gill has produced albums for LeAnn Rimes, Amy Grant and Ashley Monroe and has made guest appearances on over 500 albums, including Barbra Streisand, Eric Clapton, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, George Jones and more.

Stevie Wonder Victorious In Lawsuit

Soul man Stevie Wonder has scored a legal victory over music royalties against the widow of his late lawyer. Susan Strack, the widow of Johanan Vigoda, sued the Superstition star for $7 million (GBP4.4 million) earlier this year (15), claiming she was entitled to six per cent of royalties from his music as part of a contract he reportedly signed stipulating Vigoda’s kin would receive the payments after his death. Strack alleged Wonder attempted to have the clause amended years ago, but the dispute was never resolved before Vigoda died, and therefore she insisted the contract was still legally binding. In September (15), the 65 year old launched a countersuit against Strack, claiming he did not

agree to the provision and trusted Vigoda to leave it out of the legal papers because “he could not readTW any ARTIST of the contracts that Vigoda negotiated SINGLE and prepared” due to the fact that he is blind. Strack challenged Wonder’s allegations, insisting her husband had recruited a witness to read out the contract in full to his client before allowing him to sign. Last week (ends20Nov15), a judge dismissed Strack’s lawsuit against Wonder. The case is the second issue Wonder has had to deal with in court lately, after his divorce from fashion designer Kai Millard was finalised in October (15) after several years of processing in court. The 65year-old musician first married Kai in 2001, but the pair separated in 2009. Stevie filed for divorce in 2012 and the Associated Press reported Superior Court Judge Christine Byrd officially recognised the split on Monday 5 October (15). Stevie has two sons with Kai, including a 14-year-old and a 10year-old. According to the terms of the divorce, Stevie will share joint custody of the boys with Kai and the You Are the Sunshine of My Life singer will also pay $25,000 per month in child support. But TMZ also reported the agreement stipulates Stevie can only take the boys on tour with him “on a limited basis”. Stevie signed off on the papers with his thumbprint instead of a signature.

(15) Selena was linked to music producer Zedd, but the lovely Latina insists she’s back on the dating scene - and she isn’t particularly enjoying LABEL it. “I hate it,” she confessed. “It’s hard and I’m weirded out by the idea that a guy has Googled me before we meet - and that has happened.” Selena is often linked to other celebrities she’s photographed with, and earlier this year (15), it was reported she had enjoyed a brief romance with former One Direction singer Zayn Malik. The beauty denied the reports, but hinted she wouldn’t say no if the British singer made a move. “If he had asked me out on a date, I would be seen with him,” she said. “Just kidding, but not kidding.” While Zayn is currently rumoured to be dating supermodel Gigi Hadid, Selena was also linked to his former bandmate Niall Horan earlier this week (beg23Nov15), when she was spotted enjoying dinner with the Irish heartthrob following the American Music Awards. To complicate matters further, the Come & Get It singer was also spotted out and about with her ex, Justin, on 20 November (15) - Selena clung to the Canadian singer ’s arm at one point. Neither star has confirmed that the relationship is back on.

NBC’s The Voice Season 6 top 5 contestant Kat Perkins has just released her new Christmas EP “A Kat Perkins Christmas”. “ I was born for Christmas! Literally” states Perkins. “I wanted to bring the holiday cheer to the stage with all my favorite Christmas songs! Some are my childhood favorite, some are my favorite from church on Christmas Eve, others are my new modern spin on Christmas classics! Something for everyone!” From rural North Dakota, Perkins grew up in a town so small the population only recently went from ‘unincorporated’ to 281.

Country artist Amber Hayes has released her own version of the classic holiday track, “Merry Christmas, Darling.” Originally recorded by The Carpenters in 1970, “Merry Christmas, Darling” was written by Richard Carpenter and Frank Pooler. The classic song tells a story about going through the holidays without your special someone and dreaming of spending the festive season with them, wherever they are.

Eric Church is back at the format with one of his best to date. “Mr Misunderstood” (Universal Nashville) reminds us about what a solid contribution Eric is making to the Country format. Watch for some big weeks ahead for this monster single. I’m also loving the new Maddie & Tae single. “Shut Up And Fish” (Dot/Republic) is the one that’s getting a big thumbs up from our music and program directors. We had the privilege of hearing this song “unplugged” during a live performance at the now defunct House of Blues in Los Angeles and we could tell just how pumped up her label was about this song for radio. Granger Smith has a good thing going and make no mistake about that. “Backroad Song” (GSL) is the cut that is breaking by leaps and bounds. You might want to give this one a spin around the black before you’re the last one on it. Sam Austin is back at the format with a solid gem. “Ain’t It Good” (Plateau) is the cut that is getting raves from our panel. I’m also happy to report that Keith Urban is alive and well. His new “Break On Me” (Hit Red/Capitol Nashville) is the perfect track for this time of year and it gives Keith a big push moving into 2016 when this single will no doubt become his next #1. It’s great to have Clint Black back at Country radio. He’s getting raves for his new “Time For That” (Black Top) and for good reason, this is a great tune that deserves your immediate attention. Michael Ray is back at it with another real gem. “Real Men Love Jesus” (WEA) is the one that is taking off and keep this in the hot stack. Florida Georgia Line bring another winner into their list of monster hits. “Confession” (Big Machine/ Universal) is their latest and this is such a good song as all of their singles have been. You will no doubt get monster calls on this one to be sure. Brett Eldredge has one of his best to date out and about at radio. “Drunk On Your Love” (Atlantic Nashville) is so good that after a few listens you will be hooked for life. He’s also one of the fastest rising stars in Country so you can’t go wrong with Brett. Joe Nichols has another real favorite here at New Music Weekly. His new “Freaks Like Me” (Red Bow/Sony) is oh so good and we hope to see Joe at this year’s CRS where we’ve met him in years past. He’s also one of the smartest recording artists on Country music. Nobody is hotter right now at the format than Chris Stapleton. His new “Nobody To Blame” (Mercury Nashville) is really on fire and what a bright spot this is for closing out 2015. Recording artist Hailey Whitters has a good thing going at radio and wants the whole world to know it. “One More Hell” (Carnival) is the one to watch for in the weeks to come but better than that, get it on the air soon. Josh Christina is also rocking the world of Country with “Kayla Ann” (Go Time). We will see how this all plays out in the weeks to come but so far so very good for Josh and his strong music support team. Eileen Carey is really killing at Country and multiple formats. It’s all thanks to her single “Faith” (RolleyCstr Music) that is breaking at radio at the most perfect time. Recording artist Chuck Murphy is also getting lots of love at Country . His “How Many Times” (One West) is doing well here and at other formats. This is the “one to watch” in 2015 for sure. Zach Linley And The Rebel Daredevils are taking the music world by storm. “What It Takes” (Ind) is the jam that many of you are all over. Since this is our very Best of 2015, please take the time to go over the list of artists that deserve special attention. This all leads up to our New Music Awards and we don’t want to leave anyone behind that should be on that special list. I’ve had such a great time with this column and if you are in the Nashville area this holiday season, come visit me at Legends Corner. I’d like to wish all of my loyal new readers a very Merry Christmas, Happy New Year & I look forward to a strong and powerful 2016 as we keep this “new music revolution” alive & well.

C arrie Underwood is no stranger to the word “reality.” After all, as the winner of the 2005 season of “American Idol,” she won the hearts of millions of viewers across the world. Now, the singer has entered into a promotion that is sure to please her fan following. S ony Music Nashville and Aurasma, the world’s leading augmented reality platform, have partnered to launch an augmented reality promotional campaign for Underwood’s No. 1 album, “Blown Away,” which was released in May. U sing the free Aurasma Lite app for iPhones, iPads and Android devices available from the iTunes App Store and Google Play, fans can launch exclusive video of Underwood that is triggered by aiming the device at the cover image of Blown Away. The video leaps from the Blown Away image on the mobile device or tablet and provides a click-through gateway to the album at the iTunes store. The promotion was launched in Nashville recently at the CMA Music Festival.

“ Carrie Underwood is always looking for ways to connect with her fans,” said Gary Overton, Sony Music Nashville chairman and chief executive officer. “We are excited to embrace a cutting-edge technology like augmented reality to help give fans something special and provide a cool, unique connection between the artist and audience. Sony Music Nashville is excited to watch this fun idea unfold and is eager to partner with Aurasma on other future campaigns.” U pon its release on May 1, “Blown Away” made history by debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country albums sales chart making Underwood only the second country artist in the 47 year history of the chart to have each of their first four albums debut at No. 1. “Blown Away” also debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart making Underwood only the second country artist in history to have three consecutive albums debut at No. 1. “Blown Away” became country’s best-selling digital album debut since 2010. “ Carrie Underwood is a proven superstar. We are thrilled to partner with Sony Music Nashville to help increase the momentum of her smash album Blown Away,” said Jennifer Rapp, general manager of Aurasma. “By leveraging augmented reality to bridge the physical and virtual worlds, Sony gives the fans something exclusive and special, helping to keep fans connected and Carrie in the spotlight.” T he free Aurasma app runs on iPhone 3GS (and above), iPad2 (and above), and high-powered Android devices. Y esterday, Underwood performed the first of four concerts on the Australian leg of her tour to promote “Blown Away.” She kicked things off in Melbourne, and will perform in Tamworth and Brisbane on Friday and Saturday, before finishing things in Sydney on Sunday. Also, Underwood has just released the title cut as the second single -- to follow up the chart-topping success of “Good Girl,” which became her fifteenth number one record.

Country Date To Remember: February 11, 1962 Somewhere, around Fenton, Mo, there are some students who can say that they had one of music’s sexiest performers as a teacher. Sheryl Crow - long before she hit it big in 1993 with “All I Wanna Do,” was actually a music teacher at Kellison Elementary School. Though her teaching days in school are long over, Crow - who turns an amazing 50 years old today has educated many of her fans about some of Country Music’s greatest performers, such as Loretta, Hank, and Johnny Cash. Happy Birthday to one of Rock’s top women! NMW - DECEMBER 4, 2015

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.
