Billboard Chart Roundup – Week of October 3rd, 2015

cma-fest-2015-brett-eldredge-billboard-650

Brett Eldredge’s sophomore set ‘Illinois’ debuts at #1 this week in a surprise turn of events that sees him shift over 43,000 copies in his first week. Considering the record’s lead single ‘Lose My Mind’ hasn’t yet gone #1 and album sales are down, that’s pretty impressive. He charts ahead of Luke Bryan’s ‘Kill The Lights’, although Luke’s ‘Strip It Down’ still has Country Digital Songs on lockdown and this week moves up five places on Hot Country Songs to dominate it. Meanwhile, Sam Hunt continues to occupy #1 on Country Streaming Songs with ‘House Party’, and Kenny Chesney leaps to the top of Country Airplay with ‘Save It For A Rainy Day’ (Chris Janson was #1 on Mediabase with ‘Buy Me A Boat’, but he held onto #3 on Billboard). Read on for the full charts!

Brett Eldredge ‘Illinois’ – Album Review

44525-thumb

I got a Brett crush, hate to admit it but
I got a heart rush, ain’t slowin’ down
I got it real bad, want everything he sings
That song and the smooth voice he’s givin’ you now

Now that the scene is set for how I was anticipating the release of ‘Illinois’ we can get to reviewing the music that forms the album. To a certain extent, Brett Eldredge could release almost anything and I would still love it, just because his voice absolutely melts me, and I could listen to him sing all day long. ‘Bring You Back’ is my go-to album for almost any situation, and whilst I wasn’t too bothered about some of the songs on it (‘Tell Me Where To Park’ for one), some of the songs were simply mind-blowingly good, and this made me so excited for this new project.

Brett Eldredge ‘Lose My Mind’ – Single Review

brett eldredge lose my mind

Being Brett Eldredge’s first new material since taking the CMA New Artist Of The Year, there was understandably great anticipation for ‘Lose My Mind’, and whether he would extend his dominance at the top of the charts (his last 3 singles all went to #1). I think it is safe to say that ‘Lose My Mind’ will probably match the success of ‘Mean To Me’, ‘Beat Of The Music’ and ‘Don’t Ya’, since it is an incredibly catchy song, with more than a little pop sheen and infectious melodies. In addition to this, Brett is a bit of a dreamboat (ed note: unanimous FTCR opinion), and so will probably sell a great deal of records on his personality and smoother-than-milkshake voice.
