Lil' Wayne, Leona Lewis Set All-Time Mediabase Spin Records
May 5, 2008 at 5:07 AM (PT)
This week brings not one -- but two all-time weekly spin records at MEDIABASE. Congratulations go to SYLVIA RHONE, GARY MARELLA, SUJIT KUNDU, DAVEY DEE and the entire staff of UNIVERSAL MOTOWN as LIL WAYNE sets the one week spin record at Rhythmic with "Lollipop," featuring STATIC MAJOR.
This week's 7674 spins shatters the previous record set by MARIAH CAREY (ISLAND/IDJMG), who did so in 2005 with "We Belong Together."
Meanwhile, RICHARD PALMESE, PETER GRAY, DAVID DYER and the staff at the RCA MUSIC GROUP deserve similar kudos as they set the new MEDIABASE Top 40 record with "Bleeding Love" by LEONA LEWIS. She had 10,993 spins last week -- shattering the previous mark set by TIMBALAND/ONEREPUBLIC (MOSLEY/GEFFEN/INTERSCOPE) which was set last year.
