TMN Singles Report: Q3 2018

The Uprising Begins

Australian artists dominate the Q3 airplay charts

Maroon 5 and Cardi B may have topped the TMN Hot 100 airplay chart in Q3, but the real story of the last three months is all about the Aussies. 

Led gallantly by 5 Seconds Of Summer, Dean Lewis, Conrad Sewell and Amy Shark, this group have proven – more so than ever – that Australian artists belong on Australian radio.

Together they topped the Hot 100 for all 13 chart weeks of the quarter, including a record-breaking run for Lewis’ Be Alright – a streak that is yet to be broken.

Shark’s I Said Hi contributed two chart-topping weeks in July, but it was 5SOS who were the highest-seeded Aussie in Q3. The group notched four weeks at #1, displaying a consistency that kept them in the Top 10 for the entire quarter.

Youngblood has been a phenomenon,” said John O’Donnell, managing director EMI Music Australia. “It’s almost 6x Platinum and was #1 on the ARIA chart for eight weeks straight.”

According to O’Donnell, 5SOS still have plenty to give in 2018: “Now we intend to do the same with Valentine which was recently Most Added To Radio.

“It’s been an incredible year for a fantastic band.”

It’s also been a year to remember for Aussie country music star Morgan Evans. Scoring his maiden US country #1 with Day Drunk, the single spent 11 consecutive weeks at the top of the TMN Country airplay chart during Q3. 

This was also enough to land Evans at #49 on the Q3 Hot 100, with Day Drunk becoming the singer’s second official commercial crossover hit after Kiss Somebody

Notable mentions go out to The Rubens (Never Ever) and Peking Duk (Fire) who also ended up in the top half of the Q3 chart after hitting Top 20 peaks during the quarter.

HOT 100 MARKET SHARE
UMA solidify their leading position with quarterly gains on both Hot 40 (+2.93%) and Hot 100 (+1.36%). The label banked heavily on its international roster, with the exception of Dean Lewis, Hilltop Hoods and Thundamentals who are part of the domestic-focused Island Records Australia. Maroon 5 were the label's standout performers in Q3, contributing two entries to the chart ('Girls Like You' #1, 'What Lovers Do' #70).

SME occupies half of the Top 10 on the Q3 chart, with Australian acts improving the label’s share of the Hot 40 (+1.95%) and Hot 100 (+1.42%). Conrad Sewell and Amy Shark were the label’s top performing artists at radio in Q3 with entries at #5 and #6. A special mention goes out to Norwegian producer Kygo whose singles 'Remind Me To Forget' and 'Born To Be Yours' place at #7 and #11 on the Q3 chart.

WMA shed a loss on the Hot 40 (-10.49%) in Q3. Panic! At The Disco, Clean Bandit and Anne-Marie each had solid quarters, but couldn’t keep the label above 20% on the Hot 40. WMA were much steadier on the Hot 100 (-1.68%), however, with the likes of Bazzi, Morgan Evans, Jess Glynne and Jason Derulo all coming through with fresh radio hits that are destined to have an impact in Q4.

EMI made a radical improvement on the Hot 40 (+6.1%) in Q3 thanks to strong performances from 5 Seconds Of Summer (#2) and Jonas Blue (#14). The Universal-owned label dropped slightly on the Hot 100 (-0.62%) despite support from Marshmello & Bastille and Keith Urban. Calvin Harris & Sam Smith’s 'Promises' and 5SOS’ 'Valentine' are both promising prospects for the label in Q4.

Mushroom Music remained mostly steady in Q3 across both Hot 40 and Hot 100 markets, with a combined loss of less than -1%. Aussie acts The Rubens and Vance Joy, as well as US artist Childish Gambino, were once again the label’s prominent players. The Rubens improved on their Q2 position by 40 frames to land well inside the Hot 40 at #22.
