Mirroring their fictional characters’ pluck, the “Glee” cast and Matthew Morrison each collect their first entries on Billboard’s Nielsen BDS-based Adult Pop Songs and Adult Contemporary airplay charts, respectively.(All charts will be refreshed Thursday (April 7) on Billboard.com).The “Glee” ensemble bows on Adult Pop Songs at No. 37 with “Loser Like Me,” a track premiered in the March 15 “Glee” episode in which the cast performed the first songs written specifically for the Fox series.On Adult Contemporary, Morrison, who portrays the McKinley High School New Directions show choir leader, arrives at No. 29 with “Summer Rain.”[…]Island Def Jam Music Group senior director of adult formats Manny Simon says that the adult contemporary chart debut of “Summer Rain” bodes well for the May 10 release of Morrison’s self-titled debut album, which includes duets with recurring “Glee” guest Gwyneth Paltrow and Elton John (a fan of the series).Morrison augments promotion for the set with a 22-date U.S. tour that kicks off June 18 in Minneapolis. The trek will feature songs from the album, “as well as ‘Glee’ fan favorites,” says Simon.”‘Glee’ ranks as the number one entertainment program on broadcast television among adults 18-34, teens and female teens. Matthew comes with a massive built-in audience.”He brings a familiarity to radio from the first spin.”Bill Edwards, program director of adult contemporary WKJY (KJOY 98.3)/Nassau, N.Y., which played “Summer Rain” 15 times last week, says it’s as simple as, “I like the song and our audience loves the show.”That’s a winning combination.”Source
