Katy Perry has bumped Maroon 5 off the top of Atlanta radio with her latest single “Wide Awake.”
Maroon 5’s “Payphone” lasted two weeks on top. Both songs are played on the four pop stations in town but Wild cut back on airplay this past week, giving Perry the edge.
Perry was heard on Star 94 (67 spins), B98.5 (33 spins), Wild 105.7/96.7 (92 spins) and Q100 (73 spins).
The fastest rising song this week is Trey Songz‘ “Heart Attack,” heard on V-103, Hot 107.9 and Wild.
The most intriguing add the past two weeks is Taylor Swift’s “We are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” It was a rare single that was added by Wild, Q100, Star, the Bull and Kicks the same week. While airplay rose on Q100, Star and Kicks the second week, Wild dropped it immediately, while the Bull cut back significantly. The first week, the Bull played it 42 times, then quickly dropped it to eight. Wild spun it 23 times, then zero the past week.
This tells me the song is creating quite a stir among listeners.
