Play It On The Radio #21

How y’all doing? We’re ready with the first Play It On The Radio post of the decade. Past few weeks have been quite quiet but we finally see some action in the new year. Got loads of updates this time so sit back and ride.


  • Jay-Z’s ‘Empire State Of Mind’ is still holding the crown this week at No.1.
  • He’s followed by IYAZ’ ‘Replay’, Rihanna’s ‘Hard’ and David Guetta’s ‘Sexy Chick’.
  • Young Money’s Bedrock’ lands up in the Top 10 at No.9 for the first time.
  • Timbaland’s ‘Carry Out’ with Justin Timberlake makes a significant jump to No.24. Should have been the first single.
  • New on the charts this week: BEP’s ‘Imma Be’ and Plies’ ‘Medicine’ at No.34 and 38 respectively.

  • ‘Imma Be’ is also the most added song on Rhythmic.
  • It’s followed by: Snoop Dogg’s ‘I Wanna Rock’, Timbaland’s ‘Carry Out’ and Trey Songz’ ‘Say Aah’ in that order.
  • New adds this week: Rihanna – ‘Rude Boy’, Jay-Z – ‘Young Forever’, Alicia Keys – ‘Put It In A Love Song’, Jason DeRulo – ‘In My Head’.
  • Other Info: 50 Cent’s ‘Do You Think About Me’ and Mariah’s ‘Angels Cry’ remix with Ne-Yo officially release on the radio on 19th January.


  • Trey Songz is No.1 with ‘I Invented Sex’ for a second week in a row. That’s his 4th straight hit off Ready.
  • He’s trailed by Birdman’s ‘Money To Blow’, Melanie Fiona’s ‘It Kills Me’ and Young Money’s ‘Bedrock’.
  • Robin Thicke’s ‘Sex Therapy’ enters the Top 15 at No.13.
  • Usher’s ‘Hey Daddy’ jumps to No.23, Timbaland’s ‘Say Something’ with Drake to No.26 and Lil Wayne’s ‘On Fire’ to No.33.
  • New on the charts: Jaheim’s ‘Ain’t Leaving Without U’ at No.38 and Roscoe Dash’s ‘All The Way Turnt Up’ at 39. Don’t like this track one bit.
  • Snoop Dogg’s ‘I Wanna Rock’ is the most added song on Urban.
  • They’re followed by Omarion’s ‘Speedin’, Usher’s ‘Hey Daddy’, Timbaland’s ‘Say Something’ and Wale’s ‘Pretty Girls’. The last one is surprising since the single was officially released at least 2 months back. It is surely picking steam now.
  • New adds this week: Skillz – ‘Rap Up 2009’, Teairra Mari – ‘Sponsor’ with Gucci Mane & Soulja Boy, Jay-Z – ‘On To The Next One’, Party Boyz – ‘Flex’, Gucci Mane – ‘Bingo’ feat. Soulja Boy.

  • G-Unit fan

    why the fuck is interscope releasing the 50 single so late after the vid?

  • hustla

    happy for Wale!!! and @G-Unit fan, its not always the record label whos tobe blamed.

  • The Emperor

    Its 50 who decided to release the record on January 19th I guess, Cause he said BISD is technically a 2010 album due to its late release..IMO the joint is a classic, his best work in years..

    I guess The entire 2010 he’ll be promoting BISD…God knows, The Album Might SMH reach Plat At The End Of Year, Cause It Was Already Confirmed the album will go gold..

    I heard “So Disrespectful” Will Be Officially Out With The Video In Mid Feb..An According To You Bro, It’ll Be Released To The Radios Later On..

    I Guess In March-April He’ll Release “Could’ve Been You” Featuring R.Kelly (Another My Fav Cut)..

    “Get It Hot” Might Be Out In May-June,

    I Wanna Hear “Hold Me Down” As The Final Single, Will be Dope Or Psycho In July-August…

    Yo Hustle, Any Info Regarding The “Black Magic” Album ? Is It A Group Album Or A Solo Album Which Is Rumored To Be Out At The End Of This Year ?
