THAT'S A "FIRST": Clear Channel's Pop station websites nationwide and iHeartRadio will host the exclusive world premiere of "First Time" by the Jonas Brothers on July 17, marking the launch of Clear Channel's new video initiative. The song, the lead track from the group's forthcoming fifth album, is being spearheaded at radio by Richard Palmese, Denise George and the In2une promo team—and is seeing more action at the format as an indie release (on Jonas Enterprises) than the band did as a major-label act. In fact, it's the fastest-breaking Jonas single ever, one of radio's most added tracks every week since its bow three weeks ago. The video, by the way, features footage of the brothers at the Miss USA competition. (7/15a)
Jonas Brothers begin at No. 39 with "First Time." The song marks the sibling trio's first chart visit, and previews its first studio album, since 2009. The act premiered the video for the song on July 17 exclusively on Clear Channel station websites.
