Scotty McCreery recently premiered the music video for his song “The Trouble with Girls”. The Mark Bright-produced country song serves as the second single from the American Idol winner’s debut album “Clear as Day”. The song is enjoyable but it’s failing to impress on the charts. Scotty has done a couple of high profile TV performances with it but he’s still very low on the Billboard 100 and nowhere to be seen on iTunes USA’s top 100. Anyway, the video is pretty nice with a sweet story behind it. It was actually shot at Garner Magnet High School in North Carolina where Scotty is currently a senior.

Adele made it back to the top of the Billboard 200 albums chart for the tenth consecutive week last week. Now, the British singer is having even more success on the charts with “Rolling in the Deep” finding its way to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart for its seventh week. I’m also happy to announce that Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night (TGIF)” has made it to the top 5 of the Hot 100. The song is also doing very well in the Digital Songs chart where it sits at number 1, replacing Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”, which fell back to number 5. A huge shout out goes to Pitbull for holding the number 2 spot on the Hot 100 with “Give Me Everything” too. Congratulations guys!

Bruno Mars has scored nothing but perfection with his music this past year and now, the R&B singer has made history. Bruno’s smash hit “Just the Way You Are” just reached its 20th week at the number 1 spot on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart. He has beaten out Colbie Caillat and Daniel Powter, and now has the longest-reigning debut single in the list’s almost 50-year history. I think that it’s very well deserved. It’s been months since the song has been released and I still haven’t gotten sick of it. Heck, I’m listening to it right now. Congratulations to Bruno on the achievement!
Adam Anders, the executive music producer for “Glee”, has been successful in co-producing over 100 Billboard Hot 100 hits for the hit TV show. Now, he’s looking to capitalize on his success by making his own record label. Adam is currently working on albums by Zac Poor and Ben Burgess, and his first release will be the self-titled debut album of Disney star Shane Harper. When talking about the direction his record label will take, Adam said “I don’t believe in putting out a single and then if it doesn’t hit, drop the artist. We are here to develop artists — there is no timetable to getting it right.” I agree! I think that’s exactly what the music industry needs, a nurturing environment.

Cuban-American rapper Pitbull recently premiered the music video for his new smash hit “Give Me Everything” via VEVO. The track, which features Ne-Yo and up and coming singer Nayer, has peaked thus far at the #13 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100. I think it’s likely to crack the top 10 now with a visual in support of it. Speaking of the visual, the David Rousseau-directed clip captured the song’s essence and showed a non-stop party. If you want more of Pitbull and his music, his new album “Planet Pit” will be hitting stores on June 21st. What do you think?

I was quite impressed with Kenny Chesney when his album “Hemingway’s Whiskey” hit the number 1 spot on both the Soundscan Top 200 and the Country Albums charts. Now, the country singer’s success continues as his single “Live a Little” has become his 20th number 1 on Billboard’s Country Songs airplay chart. The song also marks Kenny’s third number 1 country songs hit from “Hemingway’s Whiskey”. Congratulations to Kenny on his success! He continues to impress and I don’t think he’s going to stop impressing any time soon. Are you among the people who have helped his song and his album reach this type of success?
Also Kenny Chesney got two nominations for CMT Music Awards for Video of the Year, Male Video of the Year

Rihanna’s “S&M” has officially hit the number 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. This achievement marks the R&B/pop singer’s 10th number 1 hit on the chart, and given the fact that her 1st #1 hit on the chart was May 2006’s “SOS”, Rihanna has achieved a record of having “the shortest span between a solo artist’s first and 10th No. 1s in the chart’s 52-year history.” The only artists who have gained 10 Hot 100 number 1’s faster than her are the Beatles and the Supremes. That’s not bad at all. If that’s not enough of an achievement, Rihanna has also become the youngest artist to land 10 number 1’s in the Hot 100 chart. Wow! Congratulations Rihanna!
