Tomorrow's Hits: Meghan Trainor, The Griswolds, Chase Bryant

TRAINOR TURNS UP THE 'BASS'

New Epic signee Meghan Trainor bows at No. 84 on the Billboard Hot 100 with her debut pop/doo-wop single "All About That Bass." The song extols female curves and positive body image: "It's pretty clear I ain't no size 2/But I can shake it ... like I'm supposed to do," sings Trainor, 20. The track surges by 191 percent to 39,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

GRISWOLDS GROW

Australian band The Griswolds (named after the family in the Vacation films) is breaking through with "Beware the Dog." The Wind-Up single, which debuts on Alternative at No. 36, blends Fun's wall-of-sound pop with guitar work that recalls Paul Simon's "You Can Call Me Al." Fun fact: The band was previously known as Weekend at Bernie's until it settled on its new '80s-inspired name.

RADIO BACKS BRYANT

Chase Bryant's debut single, "Take It on Back," bubbles under Country Airplay, as the 21-year-old singer-songwriter preps his first LP for Red Bow, which he's co-producing with Derek George. Bryant's influences include his grandfather, who played piano for Roy Orbison, and his uncles, who formed '90s band Ricochet.
