New Entrants

~ Our first entrant this week comes from Childish Gambino, spawning Redbone to the countdown. To be honest, I had never thought to see this song debuting here in the first place, but it did prove me wrong. As for the song itself, it isn't very good at all. It gives me a really creepy vibe as the vocals are really strange. The production isn't very good and the lyrics are just plain weird. My opinion could honestly bounce with this one possibly. I can see why this guy is ending his music career soon, because his music is just weird. The only thing I would find interesting out of this song is how I see it doing here, I would like to see what extent it reaches, knowing this station rarely plays this type of music.

~ Our second and final entrant this week is Bruno Mars returning on a remix of his song, Versace On The Floor, with David Guetta. This song was mediocre in the first place, so a remix just made it worse. The production isn't good at all here, and Bruno Mars has gone into an era of his music where all he ever sings about is sex. This is just getting old and his vocals in this are pretty mediocre. I just don't see the appeal of this song. I really hope it doesn't do too good here, I don't think it deserves to.

Best Entrant Of The Week: Childish Gambino - Redbone

Blurbs On The Floor

~ Zedd & Alessia Cara - Stay has returned to #1. I could say at this point, that I don't really care about this. It's either at #1, or it's not. It doesn't bother me, as long as it is keeping the red songs from reaching the top, I'm totally okay with it.

~ Imagine Dragons - Believer and Ed Sheeran - Castle On The Hill continue to linger in the top 10. The latter makes absolute no sense to me, considering it didn't do very well anywhere else, and it's frankly quite annoying with the amount of success it's being given here, being such an unappealing song. The former I understand has done better other places, but I really would like it if it was on the decline soon, it is just another unappealing song.

~ Niall Horan - Slow Hands made a good jump into the top 10 this week. I don't mind this at all, as long as it's a good song I'm definitely okay with it.

~ Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee/Justin Bieber - Despacito is doing alright so far. I would love to see a top 10 entry out of this very soon.

~ Some of you might think it's starting to get annoying seeing Ed Sheeran - Shape Of You and The Chainsmokers - Paris hanging around here for such a lengthy period of time. I'm okay with it, I feel as if these two are going to be songs that I will never get sick of, no matter how much they are played on the radio.

~ A nice jump from Calvin Harris/Pharrell Williams/Katy Perry - Feels would be good to see in the near future. It's now the best song here.

~ James Arthur - Say You Won't Let Go has made a tumble this week. I would say that this is a decent spot for it right here. I think that because my opinion keeps bouncing back and forth on this one.

~ I forgot MAX/Gnash - Lights Down Low was still here. It's just had a really unimportant tenure here, with no real highs and lows, so I guess that's probably why.

~ Train - Play That Song is finally out of the top 30! Let's keep it this way, and let's get it out of here as soon as we possibly can. Please voters, start to stop voting for this one.

~ Jon Bellion - Overwhelming is sadly starting to fail, just like many of our other newer songs lately. Oh well. 

~ Machine Gun Kelly & Camila Cabello - Bad Things is still here. That's a bit surprising. I thought this one would be long gone by now. I give it some praise for this.

~ Hopefully I can get more caught up on the Hot 45 Charts I have missed this week. I have three more to catch up on, so please be on the look out for those and please go check out the ones I posted earlier this week if you haven't already! Thank you guys!

New Entrants

~ Our first new entrant this week comes from Camila Cabello in what is her first solo single. She is definitely doing very well so far as a solo artist, and it takes time to redeem yourself after you depart from a musical group. So, I applaud her. Her single, Crying In The Club debuted here this week and I have really been enjoying this song lately. The vocals are really spot on, and while the lyrics become repetitive, I can still see myself enjoying it pretty far into the future. So, all in all, I hope to see it do well here.

~ Our second debut of the week is Calvin Harris/Pharrell Williams/Katy Perry - Feels. Not to lie, this song has been a feel good one for me in the past week, considering the rough waters I've been through in a relationship. I am trying to be positive and this song has helped me a bit, but I continue to listen to a lot of Taylor Swift's breakup songs, or other songs about relationships, because she remains my favorite artist at the time. Anyways, besides my own problems, this song has a nice set of lyrics, outstanding vocals, and great production. It all calls for a feel-good, catchy song. I hope to see it do very well here.

Blurbing In The Club

~ First of all, I would like to address how annoying it is that Ed Sheeran - Castle On The Hill has returned to the top of the chart. I am really over this song. There wasn't enough to this song to keep me with it for a long time, so I would really appreciate it if this one starting edging away from the top spot after this week.

~ Also, speaking of songs I am completely over, we have Imagine Dragons - Believer hitting a new peak in the top 3. I would also really appreciate it if this song began to edge away further from the top after this week.

~ Julia Michaels - Issues has thankfully returned to the top 10. I was starting to lose hope in this song, but over the past week with my relationship problems, this one has also been on my loop.

~ Unfortunately, our biggest jump this week came from none other than Sam Hunt - Body Like A Back Road. This song is not the best country song this station could have picked up in all obviousness, so I would really appreciate it if this one went on the decline after this week. I am actually quite surprised at the same time that this one actually got this far here.

~ Panic! At The Disco - L.A. Devotee is really becoming quite old, and I keep appreciating the small drops it's getting. Although it's going slowly, hopefully it will prove to surely happen.

~ Linkin Park/Kiiara - Heavy took a decent dip this week. I wouldn't be surprised though if this song went back up this week, because we all know how confusing a tenure this song has shown us. I wouldn't mind another jump anyways, I'm still enjoying the song a good amount.

~ Liam Payne - Strip That Down made a pretty good jump up into the top 20 this week. I have been enjoying this song lately, and I would definitely prefer this song being this high up over some of the others in the top 20, so, it's okay doing business here.

~ Train - Play That Song is the worst song here. It needs to be departing here soon, and I really would appreciate it if this one didn't go back into the top 20. I don't understand why it was so popular on this chart, where it wasn't anywhere else. It is a good thing that it didn't blow up in other places, because it has become overly annoying with it's success here.

~ Jason Derulo/Ty Dolla $ign/Nicki Minaj - Swalla took the biggest drop this week and I am kind of glad, as it is beginning to become too close to being another red song under our belt.

~ How does a song like Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee/Justin Bieber - Despacito, the biggest song in the country right now, not jump on its second week at all? Now I am seriously questioning this station's logic.

~ I was seeing a small glimmer of actual hope in Aaron Carter - Sooner Or Later the last few weeks, but now that glimmer is starting to die.

~ I am still going to say how surprised I am that Machine Gun Kelly & Camila Cabello - Bad Things is still here, I don't know why, but I honestly didn't expect this track being one of those songs that stays for months and hangs in the bottom 5 for some of that time.

New Entrants

~ First up this week we have a HitBound exit from last week, Jon Bellion - Overwhelming. This song has been good from the start. I am in love with the vocals and this guy has failed to disappoint me so far. I admit that the production is weird on this track, but it definitely is working for me at the moment. I can say that I would like for it to do well here, and I expect to see it do just that.

~ The next new song we are seeing this week comes from Erin Bowman, who also spawned another HitBound exit last week in the form of Good Time Good Life. Now, I have been enjoying this song for a while, but the repetitive lyrics are really starting to get me. I am still sold on the other parts of the song, which are what keeps it in green. I wouldn't say I see this one doing great here anyway, and I'll be okay with that if that's the case.

~ Third this week we have the biggest song out there right now, Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee/Justin Bieber - Despacito. As you can see, this song is currently the best one here, as it has been colored in purple. I have just been enjoying the catchy vibe this song gives me. Right now, everything about this song is very good, and I expect it to do well here because it has one of this station's favorite artists.

~ Finally, we have Noah Cyrus - Stay Together. I have been playing this song since I first heard it and honestly it has been a good song to go to when I'm having troubles with a certain person that is very important to me. I like the lyrics, the production, and vocals, and that all calls for a good song. I definitely am wishing it well here.

Bad Blurber

~ The Chainsmokers & Coldplay - Something Just Like This has returned to the top. I'll take it. It's a good song, so I'm not caring too much. Like I said, if it's keeping #2 from the top spot, or even #5, I'm okay with it.

~ We received four top 10 entrants this week. We see Linkin Park/Kiiara - Heavy again, which I'm not minding too much. We also see Lady Gaga - The Cure, which I'm happy seeing here. James Arthur - Say You Won't Let Go has returned to the top 10 as well. This one remains okay for the time being, I don't hate it yet, but it's starting to get old. Finally, Charlie Puth - Attention makes an appearance, much to my happiness.

~ I have noticed Ed Sheeran - Shape Of You has dropped below the top 10. This is one of the songs that I thought would be there forever. Maybe we can't be so sure it's leaving this quickly.

~ It was said by me last week that I did not think AJR - Weak would last too long in the top 10, that it was just a weird thing that happened. What did I tell you? It's out. I don't care too much, though.

~ Shawn Mendes - Mercy just doesn't want to leave. It's time though. It needs to not try anymore.

~ Train - Play That Song has officially dropped out of the top 20, now all we have to do is keep it there, and we should be all set.

~ DNCE - Kissing Strangers has risen from the dead, or at least the songs we thought were going to be dead here. I am pretty happy about this, since I have been liking the song lately a lot more. The only thing is we have to get it to keep rising. 

~ Sam Hunt - Body Like A Back Road made somewhat of a jump this week, but I would prefer it stray away from the top 30, just to prevent anything that will be annoying in the future.

~ Did Aaron Carter - Sooner Or Later just hit a new peak? I think it did. I really don't understand why this song has been doing so poorly, as it is easily one of the best songs here. Come on people, get your acts together!

~ Fitz & The Tantrums - HandClap is looking to see an end here in the near future. It was nice having you.

~ One last thing. How in the hell is Maroon 5 - Don't Wanna Know still hanging on like this? I just would appreciate it if this one left. You can all see how deathly annoying it has become for me.
