Pop Songs
*** No. 1 (1 week)*** "All About That Bass" Meghan Trainor
Rookies continue to rule pop radio, as Meghan Trainor takes over atop Pop Songs with her debut hit "All About That Bass" (2-1). The coronation contributes to a record-tying trend at the format: the song marks the fifth consecutive No. 1 by an act in a first chart visit (as a lead), following Charli XCX's "Boom Clap," Sam Smith's "Stay With Me," MAGIC!'s "Rude" and Nico & Vinz's "Am I Wrong." The streak matches that of five straight No. 1s by new acts in 1997: Savage Garden ("I Want You"), Hanson ("MMMBop"), Meredith Brooks ("Bitch"), OMC ("How Bizarre") and Third Eye Blind ("Semi-Charmed Life"). Programmers have attributed the current crop of freshman hits to both song quality and a lull in product from established format stars. "Bass," meanwhile, Trainor's first No. 1 on a Billboard airplay chart, is the Greatest Gainer on Adult Pop Songs (7-4) and debuts on Dance Club Songs (No. 37) and even Latin Pop Songs (No. 38). It's led the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks running.
