Kelsea Ballerini ‘Dibs’ – Single Review

KelseaBalleriniDibs

Kelsea Ballerini surprised everyone by being the first woman to hit #1 in nearly three years, the first woman to hit #1 with her debut single in nine years, the first artist on an independent label to hit #1 in over three years, and the first artist ever to hit #1 under Black River Entertainment. That’s quite a list of achievements for a 21-year-old. Still, the proof comes in whether Kelsea can repeat the feat with her follow-up single, as even when women have been able to reach #1 in the past decade or more, they have historically struggled to push a follow-up to the same peak.

Billboard Chart Roundup – Week of July 4th, 2015

kelsea 1

Please note: Due to Global Release Day switching all releases to a Friday, Billboard’s chart weeks are also changing. This means charts will come out on Tuesdays instead of Thursdays from July 14, and thus from that point forward our chart roundups will appear on Tuesdays. iTunes UK roundups will switch to Fridays to co-ordinate with up-to-the-minute changes regarding new releases on that day.

Phew! Finally a woman atop Country Airplay! That honor goes to Kelsea Ballerini with ‘Love Me Like You Mean It’, while Little Big Town hold onto #1 on Hot Country Songs with ‘Girl Crush’ (its current peak on radio is #9). The latter also moves back to #1 on Country Digital Songs, although finds itself beaten by Sam Hunt’s ‘Take Your Time’ on Country Streaming Songs for another week in a row. Zac Brown Band also return to the top, with ‘Jekyll + Hyde’ taking #1 again on Top Country Albums. New tracks this week include Kenny Chesney’s ‘Save It For A Rainy Day’, Miranda Lambert’s ‘Smokin’ And Drinkin’’ (with the aforementioned Little Big Town), and Luke Combs’ ‘Hurricane’, while there are albums from Tim McGraw, Hank Williams Jr, Big Smo, Cory Morrow and compilations debuting this week.
