Blessings go out to the RCA team as they head into their Summer Meeting on fire off the success of Sia's #1 Selling Album 1,000 FORMS OF FEAR... #1 at Rhythm with Tinashe's debut single "2 On"... and are poised to grab the #1 slot at Top 40 and Hot AC with Magic! "Rude." Talk about a great time to come together - they get to both celebrate the current success and build upon their momentum moving forward. GM Joe Riccitelli is personally looking to use the meetings to be held at 353WESTNYC (hint, hint to other labels looking for an off -site meeting location) as the forum to personally present the team with their 2013 S.I.N. Awards to help motivate heading into this year's Awards season.

We tip our hat to WB's Dave Dyer who follows up a great campaign with Nico & Vinz #1 Single "Am I Wrong" by already putting things in motion with another new act for the label, Bebe Rexha and her debut single "I Can't Stop Drinking About You." The former S.I.N. Mystery Artist is one who should definitely get a solid look especially after making noise as the featured vocalist on Cash Cash's Top 15 Pop single "Take Me Home."

A "sincere" thanks goes out to Radio One's Colby Colb who has always been a part of the S.I.N. Family and continues to play an integral roll as we head into our 10/20 Family Reunion Celebration.

A shoutout goes to all the Programmers who embrace the concept of the S.I.N. Mystery Artist campaigns as a way to let the music speak for itself rather than formulating an impression from the Artist or Image alone. This week we unveil our most recent Mystery Artist, Estelle as the voice behind the amazing ballad "Conqueror." If you've missed this song so far it's time to check it out now.

RCA's Jeff Rizzo get put on ice earning an X-Communication for challenging the wrong person not once but twice. As a baseball fan there should be no need to remind you that 3 strikes and you're out. Watch yourself.

The Summer heat burns Programmers sitting on the sidelines still trying to over think Childish Gambino's "3005." The Top 10 Rhythm single has been active at radio for 8+ months shows potential at both Urban and Top 40 radio attracting the attention of key programmers like Thea Mitchem (WWPR), Reggie Rouse (WVEE), Angelique Alston (WPGC), Beata (KIIS) and a host of others.

Randy Kramer gets X'd this week as Ryan Kramer takes over the leading roll. Check out Kramer's picks in this week's Usual Suspects.
