This week will tell the story of NCOE -- either RCA and Adam have radio stations on board or they do not.
Why? We still have two more weeks to the official adds dates. Please explain.
ETA: I see myspenser already asked the same question!
My bet/expectation is that we see a sign of support for NCOE next week.
Yes, the impact date is 5.29.12, but if it is going to be a major hit, RCA will have some major lead stations playing it next week, and adding before the impact date.
The goal is to have the most impact on radio around the impact date, not to hold up adds until then.
For example, Z100 added "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" on 1/3/2012. I officially impacted Top 40/Mainstream radio on 1/17/12. Z100 usually leads when they support a song. Adam is there tomorrow and doing the mini-concert supported by Z100. (Just using it as an example and not saying NCOE will match Stronger, just an example.)
Just my guess, Z100 will add before the impact date and I think they will add this week.

NCOE is not Stronger and Adam is not Kelly. 118 stations added Stronger before its adds date. Z this week? I don't think so. I think there's a good possibility Q102 will add this week though. If Z100 was going to add early, I think they would have added last week along with WKTU. I would love to be wrong.

If I dared to throw a hypothesis out there: say the big radio markets didn't pull through, or NCOE itself just wasn't strong enough to make it to top 10, then what? Like many people pointed out radio presence and successful singles sell the album in the long run, does that mean this Academy worthy album is going nowhere?? has any album ever caught on organically because it's so good that eventually just spreads like wild fire, even without radio support?
I do get a strong feeling that the album will do well internationally! :-)

Whatever stylistic whimsy happens on the news threads happens on the news threads.
However, Numbers formatting is already complicated enough without everyone chiming in with different colors and fonts.
Ergo, if stardust concurs, THIS THREAD's text standard will remain plain, black, Verdana, 2 point font.
You want to play with colors and fonts for squeeing purposes, fine. Otherwise keep it plain, black, 2 point Verdana or we may change it for you.
THANK YOU!!!! I keep thinking that posters are really excited or really pissed about something when I read the larger fonts on the main thread. lol The numbers thread is nerve-raking enough. (because of its nature of dealing with day to day tracking) All of those wild, huge fonts might give me an anxiety attack if they were used daily in this thread!
Actually the quote goes like this talking about the Pop demographic: "I forget what the age demographic is but something like 16-24 or 18-34 or something along those lines. An audience slightly older than what Justin Bieber (used to) cater(s) to"
Does anyone therefore know the age classifications of these radio audiences? Just curious to learn since reading the billboard article. And how do they determine which artists fit to what since CHR is not teen dominated as Bieber fans are also frustrated with his performance in this demo despite all his sales and popularity. Thanks
And another contribution I would like to make is those of us saying Adam single sales post numbers that do not support how loud is fanbase is and so his fanbase is not as big, yes i agree he does not have the biggest fanbase and neither do most of the others have too.
Nicki Minaj's first single before the current smashing one went on sale on iTunes the same day as BTIKM, and while Adam's peaked at 19, hers peaked somewhere in the 50s. Her present smashing single on the other hand was debuted at the Grammies and she also got a clear Channel radio deal similar to what JLo, Usher and co got that ensured they had their songs being spun virtually every 30 mins on the radio. This is just the secret behind most of the songs debuting high on iTunes. And we should all know Bieber and those teens that sell without mainstream radio are being spun non-stop on Radio Disney to their target teen audience.
One factor you are failing to register in is that 99% of those that debut atop iTunes have radio already on board at the lunch of the single and so their songs get spinned every 30secs. to help those iTunes climbs or they lunch it on a big platform like the reality shows or some other platforms.
And angsting over iTunes positions at this stage always baffles me. The fact remains no song would sell without a substantial Audience Impression - usually close to the 10million mark. Also right now, there are so many songs with AI impression as high as 8million on CHR that are not showing significant sales on CHR. Below is the link for those that like to angst.

I find it interesting that Q102 played IIHY last night instead of NCOE. I'm thinking if NCOE was palyed it would have been 7 spins...automatic add for station but no spins were held at 6. strategy.?????????
