Congratulations “The Fighter” #1 Mediabase

It came true much sooner than we estimated. On the final but official chart published by Mediabase on Sunday at 6:25 pm PDT, Carrie and Keith’s duet incredibly took the throne as this week’s #1 single, though on the previous and unofficial charts it was always situated behind Billy Currington’s “Do I Make You Wanna”.

So, how could this magical overachievement happen?

Last Wednesday when “The Fighter” entered the top 3, “Do I Make You Wanna” still led our single with 184 spins and about 2.4 M audience impressions ahead. But on the next days, “The Fighter” kept prevailing its rivalry by gaining much more positive points, as shown on the below table, especially, on Saturday July 29.

And this led to a very promising opportunity that “The Fighter” could wind up being #1 right this week instead of waiting for another time. And actually on Saturday it had more spins than Billy Currington’s single did. However, even though, on the Mediabase update shown in Sunday morning, it was still at position #2 and almost all Care Bears thought that this was final. But, within the next 15 hours, “The Fighter” gained 10 more spins and 0.020 M AIs, slightly but twice as much as its rivalry did. And these tiny but magnificent extra points affected the final chart on which “The Fighter” was confirmed as #1. It’s so extraordinary and unbelievable.

And this was also the only moment “The Fighter” touched the top. On Monday, its recurrent process dramatically started. On Billboard, it could only peak at #2.

This story reminds me of what happened on Mediabase on Sunday March 12 when Brad Paisley’s “Today” excellently passed Jon Pardi’s “Dirt on My Boots” to proclaim itself #1. Besides, in the past, “Remind Me”, Carrie’s duet with Brad Paisley, became #1 not only on Mediabase Country but also on Billboard Country Airplay (then called Hot Country Songs).

Above all, congratulations to Carrie and Keith on the success of this duet. And we can’t wait for other great collaborations between them in future.

“The Fighter” to become #1 – Keep requesting

This July saw the spectacularly decisive rise of Carrie and Keith’s duet to the top of the Mediabase chart.

The Fighter No. 6 to No. 2 Mediabase

Overall, for exactly a month, the single first gradually moved up, then slightly dropped, and in the end dramatically rose.

During the first 3 weeks, it took “The Fighter” 8 days to enter the top 5 from #6 (passing Florida Georgia Line) and 9 other days to climb to #4 (passing Blake Shelton), then remained there for 4 days.

After that, it was a brief decrease back to #5 (being passed by Billy Currington).

However, it amazingly moved up 2 spots to #3 the day before yesterday, and one more spot to the second highest position yesterday. At the same time, the 3 recent #1 singles of Rascal Flatts, Dylan Scott, and Thomas Rhett significantly plummeted as they are going recurrent.

It’s possible that Billy Currington “Do I Make You Wanna” will become #1 single this week, while “The Fighter” will take the throne next Sunday.

In addition, it entered the top 5 on Billboard Country Airplay already.

Best of luck to the single

The Fighter in the top 5 and congrats to Melanie

The first week of July, with the US Independence Day, saw the increases of The Fighter

  • On Billboard, its place is #8 this week (+2 spots)
  • On Mediabase, it is passing “God, Your Mama, and Me” tomorrow to enter the top 5

But the most special news is the birth of Melanie’s little adorable baby girl, who was born on July 3rd Announcement on Twitter:

Good luck to The Fighter next week and congratulations to Melanie and her family

The Fighter reaches #6 on Mediabase

Carrie and Keith’s duet attained a newly high position on Mediabase Country today, meanwhile it also manages to get into the top 10 of Billboard Country Airplay. Congratulations!

Overall, on the Mediabase chart from April to June, “The Fighter” started with a slight increase, then continued with fluctuations, and finally finished with a new increase.

In the first half of April, it can be seen that after having gained 3 spots at the end of the previous month, the song continued to rise slightly, from #18 on Apr 1 to #17 on Apr 8 (passing Trent Harmon), and to #16 and #15 on Apr 10 and Apr 17 respectively (recurrents removed).

Chart positions in May

Later, from the second half of April till the end of May, it fluctuated twice, briefly moved up and down alternately between #15 and #14 in Apr 17–23, and climbed and dropped among positions #13, #12 and #11 on the remaining days. A main rivalry that led to these fluctuations is Rascal Flatts’ “Yours If You Want It”.

Chart positions in June.png

However, in the end, from May 30 to today at the end of June, the current period sees a stably flourishing increase of Carrie and Keith. Their duet keeps rising at the rate of 1.5 positions per week, until reaching #6 today (passing Dan and Shay).

As the current singles in the top 5 are still gaining spins and audience impressions, it’ll take us days to wait for “The Fighter” to enter the top 5. Now it’s time for us to keep request it on the stations

On the other hand, the Billboard chart saw a gradual increase of “The Fighter” from March to mid-May, its slight decrease for the next month, and a recovery to enter the top 10 today, as shown in the below graphs.

At the moment, Carrie is scheduled for her glorious star on Hollywood Walk of Fame, and Melanie is exciting about her July-born baby girl. Best wishes to both our ladies.
