TMN Singles Report: Q2 2019

Radio's sucker punch hits the sweet spot

Consistency was the key for Jonas Brothers in Q2

Nearly six years after closing the curtain on the first chapter of their career, Jonas Brothers returned in 2019 to take Australian radio by storm.

‘Sucker’ may have lost out a tightly-fought Most Added battle to Amy Shark in March, but the trio would have the last laugh, finishing at #1 on the 2019 Q2 TMN Hot 100 Airplay Chart.

The return single had already been on the Hot 100 for four weeks before the quarter began, giving ‘Sucker’ a solid base upon which to build its success.

While ‘Sucker’ only topped the airplay chart for two non-consecutive weeks during Q2 — less than P!NK’s ‘Walk Me Home’ and Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber’s ‘I Don’t Care’ — the consistency of the pop hit in the upper echelons of the chart was unmatched.

‘Sucker’ remained in the Top 5 for all but one week during the quarter in which it fell to #6, and its incredible run included nine weeks in either first or second spot.

Speaking of emphatic comebacks, Birds Of Tokyo were in high demand these past three months, and finished as the top-performing Australian lead artist in Q2.

‘Good Lord’ also finished the quarter atop the Contemporary Rock Chart, spending five weeks inside the Top 10 and only finishing outside the Top 25 once during the quarter.

The Perth band released the track in February, but it took some time to bed in at radio. The single would see its best results in Q2, gaining traction on adult radio and gleaning solid support from Triple M.

‘Good Lord’ was one of 26 singles involving Aussies on the quarterly chart, four more than in Q1. Dean Lewis contributed three of those singles, while rising star Tones And I added two.

Notably, The Chainsmokers’ single ‘Who Do You Love’ featuring Sydney-hailing 5 Seconds Of Summer came in at #4.

HOT 100 MARKET SHARE
UMA was strengthened in Q2 by the development of new talent and the return of pop music's biggest names. With 37.33% (+2.86) share of the Hot 100 and a massive 43.84% (+13.84) of the Hot 40, UMA continues to prove its stature as the biggest record company in the world. Jonas Brothers (#1), Lewis Capaldi (#3), Mabel (#6) and Billie EIlish (#7) were the label's top performers, while Avicii and Taylor Swift had radio begging for more.

It was all green arrows for SME in Q2 with quarterly gains on both the Hot 100 (+2.13) and Hot 40 (+7.56). Sony notched a total of 11 entires from Australian acts, better than every other label's domestic performance in Q2, led by The Chainsmokers & 5SOS (#4), Amy Shark (#18) and The Veronicas (#40). SME appears to be building nicely in 2019 with fresh singles from P!NK, Illy, Guy Sebastian and Jessica Mauboy primed for a big Q3.

The likes of Lukas Graham, Rita Ora and Ava Max cooled off in Q2, seeing WMA's share of the airplay market take a sizeable turn. 17.93% (-6.29) of the Hot 100 keeps the major in third position among the labels, while the Hot 40 (-18.35) saw four WMA artists make the bracket, including two entries from Ava Max. Things are looking more positive for WMA in Q3 thanks to a quartet of Ed Sheeran singles making waves at radio.

Top 10 entries from Sam Smith & Normani (#2), as well as Aussies Birds Of Tokyo (#8), helped EMI to a 16.83% (+4.69) of the Hot 40, a pleasing increase on Q1. Despite additional strong performances from Lauv & Troy Sivan, KIAN, EMI's share of the Hot 100 as a whole dipped slightly to 16.09% (-1.88). Once again, the Universal-owned label shone brightly on the domestic front with Aussie acts responsible for six entries on the chart.
