Jana Kramer is starting the week with a bit of “out” and ‘in”. The “out” is her music video for her song “Why Ya Wanna,” which made it’s debut today. The “in” is that the single is in the Mediabase Top 40 for the first time, appearing today at #40.
CMT exclusively debuted the video for the former One Tree Hill actress. The network is also backing the Elektra Nashville singer by naming her as the inaugural artist in their revamped Listen Up program, which highlights artists on the verge of breaking out. What that means for Kramer is a lot of support this month from CMT, both on TV and online.
That’s very good news for Kramer, who set a record with the radio release of “Why Ya Wanna.” When the song was first released, 55 radio stations added it to their rotations. That made Kramer the most added debut artist since Country Aircheck began tracking playlist adds back in 2006. Her cracking into the Mediabase Top 40 shows the song is now starting to pick up steam. It might be going from steam to smoke to flame with the added attention the video will be bringing her. Stay tuned!
