Alessia Cara’s Scars to Your Beautiful Keeps Moving Up

It’s a new week and we have ourselves a new top 10 for Top 40 songs from Mediabase. The chart doesn’t have too many surprises, but it is big to see Alessia Cara’s latest hit, “Scars to Your Beautiful,” move up the chart from eight to six. It’s a nice bump up for this young singer and we expect this song to challenge those in the top five by next week.

Hits from Bruno Mars, Maroon 5 and Ariana Grande all move up the chart this week, but there were no new hits. Let’s take a look at the entire top 10 list…

1. The Chainsmokers f/ Halsey – Closer
2. Ariana Grande f/ Nicki Minaj – Side to Side
3. DJ Snake f/ Justin Bieber – Let Me Love You
4. The Weeknd f/ Daft Punk – Starboy
5. Bruno Mars – 24K Magic
6. Alessia Cara – Scars to Your Beautiful
7. Gnash f/ Olivia O’Brien – I Hate U, I Love U
8. Maroon 5 f/ Kendrick Lamar – Don’t Wanna Know
9. Hailee STeinfeld & Grey f/ Zedd – Starving
10. Twenty One Pilots – Heathens

Year End Announcements and Other Milestones

The year is nearing the end, so there is much to talk about. Who had the best 2016? Who was the surprise artist? Which albums were the best? Well, it’s at this time that we start seeing these kinds of answers…

Apple Music came out with their top albums of the year. The list isn’t too surprising with the biggest hits being pretty obvious. Drake’s “Views’ was the top album followed by “Anti” from Rihanna, “25” from Adele and “Blonde” from Frank Ocean.

If you ask FuseTV which albums were the best in 2016 then you get a different response. Their top album was “Anti” while the others inside the top three were “A Seat at the Table” and “Lemonade.”

Another video on YouTube has reached one billion views. This time it’s “Thrift Shop” from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

Meghan Trainor Announces Canceled Shows

Thursday morning, Meghan Trainor hopped on Instagram and saddened us all, canceling multiple shows to round out 2016. She said on Instagram, “I posted last week that I wasn’t feeling great, but was powering through the best that I could. Unfortunately, I am not feeling any better and after leaving the doctor today, I have been put on strict vocal rest for the next two weeks. This absolutely kills me because I was so excited to see all of you on the road…”

Meghan had many tour dates left to finish out the year and was forced to cancel shows in Washington DC, Atlanta, New York City and Sunrise (Florida). It looks like for now, we’ll have to wait until 2017 to see Meghan play live again. While we are saddened to see that she is too sick to perform, we would rather her be safe than sorry.

Ariana Grande’s Upcoming Grammy Night

The Grammys announced their nominations just the other day and it’s fair to say we have Grammy fever! The award show is about two months away, but we’re ready for it to be here now. One artist we’re focusing on this week is Ariana Grande. She has really done some great work this year, but she’s going to have to pull out a miracle to take home a piece of hardware come February 12.

Ariana is up for two awards that night, but her competition is very stiff. She is up for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Solo Performance. For that first award she has to go up against the likes of Adele, Demi Lovato, Sia and Justin Bieber! For the second award she is up against Adele, Beyonce, Justin Bieber and Kelly Clarkson.

We love Ariana’s work on her latest album release, “Dangerous Woman,” and really hope she comes away with at least one victory come February 12!

The Chainsmokers’ First, Second and Third Awards at the Grammys

The Chainsmokers have had one hell of a 2016 and the Grammys have recently recognized them with their first Grammy nomination. They’re not just up for one award though. This talented duo is up for three awards come February 12! They are up for Best New Artist, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Dance Recording.

These two have been riding high after the release of “Closer” and because of that song we think they have a real shot at winning at least one award. The Best New Artist category is stacked, but might by their best shot at winning. They go up against Kelsea Ballerini, Chance the Rapper, Maren Morris and Anderson .Paak.

For Best Pop Duo/Group Performance they will be facing off against hits from Lukas Graham, Rihanna, Sia and Twenty One Pilots.

Lastly, the nominations for Best Dance Recording include hits from Sofi Tukker, Riton, Flume and Bob Moses.
