Katy Perry’s ‘Firework’ ends Rihanna’s eight-week run

Katy-Perry-Fireworks-FanMade

Katy Perry’s “Firework” finally bumped Rihanna’s “What’s My Name?” as the top-reigning song in Atlanta radio after eight weeks.

While Wild continues to give Rihanna top rotational spins (90) for the 11th week in a row, V-103 (45), Q100 (54) and Hot (41) have scaled back.

Perry is six spins ahead thanks to top spins on three stations: Star 94 (48, Wild (91) and Q100 (95), plus four spins on B98.5 (thanks to Delilah at night. The song is not in regular rotation.)

Interestingly, the momentum for the huge out-of-the-box response to Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” song slowed. It  actually lost airplay compared to the previous week, from 113 spins to 97 spins.

New songs adds:

Hot 107.9: Kanye West & Jay-Z “H*A*M” (11 spins from 3), Jamie Foxx’s “Best Night of My Life”

V-103: Ginuwine “What Could Have Been” Nelly w/ Kelly Rowland “Gone” Keyshia Cole “Take Me Away” Lloyd Banks “ I Don’t Deserve You”

Wild 105.7: Far East Movement “Rocketeer” Dr. Dre “I Need a Doctor”

Q100: return of Cee Lo’s “F-You”

Star 94: no adds

Dave FM: Iron and Wine “Tree By the River” Sara Bareilles “Uncharted” John Mayer “Perfectly Lonely”
