I almost felt bad yesterday that I didn’t bother to note that Lee DeWyze’s debut post-”Idol” album came out yesterday. (Remember him?) So to make up for that, here’s the video for his song. It’s actually not a bad song.
- Jennifer Hudson portray’s Winnie Mandela in the upcoming biopic about her. Here’s a trailer:
- Carrie Underwood’s “Mama’s Song” daily update: For the first time since I started tracking this more than a month ago, Carrie’s song has lost airplay spins week over week. From Nov. 11-17, the song received 5,588 spins, down 33 spins from Nov. 4-10. It’s at No. 11 (though No. 10 adjusted for audience size). Does this mean the song is going to be the first Underwood single not to make the top 2 on the country chart? Probably. If I know for sure her song is not going to rise any further, I will post a separate blog entry noting that when I said it could be her first “radio failure,” I was only half right. A top 10 single is not a failure by any stretch of the imagination but it would by far be her lowest charting single in five years by a long shot.
