Bruno Mars (’It Will Rain’) edges out Rihanna (’We Found Love’) for top Atlanta radio song

Bruno-Mars-It-Will-Rain-LyricsIt’s a barn burner for most played song in Atlanta this past week.

Bruno Mars, who has had a string of hits lately with “Just the Way You Are, “Grenade” and “The Lazy Song,” hits the top spot in Atlanta with “It Will Rain” from the latest “Twilight” film. Three stations spun it 231  spins.

It saw a whopping gain of 83 spins this past week, with mid-rotation on Star (28 spins) and top rotation on Q100 (91) and Wild 105.7 (112).

Rihanna has been pumping out even more big songs over a longer period of time. Over the past two years, she has been at the top of Atlanta radio with songs such as “Rude Boy,” “S&M” and “What’s My Name?” Now she has “We Found Love,” which has top rotational spins on Q100 (89) and Wild (a whopping 125). She has one spin each on Star, Hot and V-103. But she falls 14 spins short of Bruno Mars with 217.

The No. 1 song for eight non-consecutive weeks, Maroon 5’s ‘Moves Like Jagger, took a major tumble, losing 99 spins in the past week and falling to 12th place.

And Merry Christmas! Nat King Cole’s “The Christmas Song” made the top 10!
