Six weeks for Usher’s ‘OMG’ as top Atlanta radio song

usher-raymond-v-raymond-1

Matching Rihanna’s “Rude Boy” in the spring, Usher’s OMG” has been top dog on Atlanta radio for six weeks. It might reach seven weeks.

The song was spun 319 times last week, down 18 from a week earlier, from six stations: Magic (2), Beat (98), Hot (45), V-103 (41), Groove (62) and Q100 (71).

Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” is handicapped by being played on only four stations so it remains at No. 2. The only new top 10 song this week is Mike Posner’s “Cooler Than Me,” which got spin increases from the Groove. Train’s “Hey, Soul Sister” was upgraded in spins on Star 94 from 59 to 74 despite its relative age and moved back into the top 10 overall.

The Groove is being much more aggressive lately adding new songs. Usher’s latest single “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love” gained 49 spins this week, mostly from the Groove, which is already playing it five times a day. Sugarland’s latest single “Stuck Like Glue” was immediately added by the Bull and Kicks for a total of 37 spins this week.

Two biggest dropoffs were Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” and “Alejandro.” Combined, the two songs lost 115 spins last week. Why? Star 94 took both songs off their playlist at the same time.
