Holly Rock (radio edit)

I recieve discs in the mail every month from a company called "Top Hits USA" for my mobile DJ buisness. On the latest disc, T1539, I recieved a radio edit for "Holly Rock". It clocks in at about 3:47. I thought other completists like myself would be interested.

Making love and music are the only things worth fighting for.

Also for the completists out there; the official 1 track promo CD has been out for almost 3 weeks with the "radio edit" on it, but on the promo it's called "Album edit" clocking in at 3:47...

Great info! Thank you! "Album edit" makes more sense as they don't edit out "Bullsh*t". Not sure how many radio stations would be willing to test the FCC with that.

Making love and music are the only things worth fighting for.

The edit is also up on Youtube. It was uploaded the day the video was released.

So...the point here is : does anybody heard the song on the radio?
Because...the aim of a radio edit is to...be played on the radio, right?

The only commercial radio station that added it to their playlist that I know of is a Urban Contmporary station in Fort Wayne Indiana. They have given it just 7 spins so far, but I'll keep an eye on it to see if this generates any interest. I doubt seriously that it will, as it is not a good fit for this format. I do think the format would be the most likely one to play newly released Prince music, but they need something soulful or a love ballad. Most of the songs on Originals fit the bill better the Holly Rock.

Tidal wants $1.99 for the MP3 and $4.99 for the FLAC file. For one song!

Pretty steep.

Is there a way to track how many plays something recieves?

A certain kind of mellow.

Yes, I use all access radio, which is a free website.

https://www.allaccess.com/

Once your in the site, you hit the mediabase link, for which you need to develop a free account. Once you are logged in, it gives you a number of options for various types of radiot stations such as top 40, urban, adult contemporary, country, and so forth. It gives you the rankings of airlply on each format that is updated daily. It also gives you which songs have had the biggest weekly spin increasea for the selected format as well as which songs were added to the most stations that week.

It really has Billboard beat by a mile if you are interested in radio play,
