Stooshe’s single ‘Black Heart‘ is currently the 4th most-played song on UK Radio!
After the girls’ success of debuting at #4 in the UK Top 40 singles chart on the weekend, Nielsen Music – a market research body for the music industry – have added to the good news with statistics showing that Stooshe’s second single has been played over 1,000 times on UK radio stations in the last 24 hours.
The news bodes well for another strong Stooshe chart position this week, and is to the delight of those of us here at The Hub Entertainment, who have been working as the trio’s specialist radio pluggers.
CEO of The Hub, Austin Daboh, said: “As the company who secured Stooshe’s first ever radio spin, everyone at The Hub Entertainment are so proud to see the girls dominate UK radio. It’s a testament to the quality of the record that it can sit as comfortably on the A-list on BBC 1Xtra as it can on the A-list on Heart FM. I’d like to thank Anton Partridge and the whole Warner team for choosing The Hub as specialist radio pluggers for Stooshe.”
‘Black Heart‘ is released through Warner Music UK, and available to buy on iTunes HERE. Check out the music video above.
