It’s been a busy 2018 for Island star Nick Jonas, from film work to fragrances, but there hasn’t been much to talk about in the music department. Now, the newly-engaged singer is back and engaging with his fans on the hit “Right Now”, performed with TONSPIEL/Big Beat/Atlantic’s Robin Schulz. Released last Friday, the collaboration went as high as #17 on iTunes in the U.S., though it entered the all-genre chart in 55 countries globally. It’s certainly off to a better start at the service than his prior release, the Mustard collaboration “Anywhere” (issued on 10 Summers/Interscope), which made the same list in only 20 territories. Spotify numbers for the song are also solid, sitting just under 2.8 million streams since debuting, with strong pop and New Music Friday playlisting helping its momentum. (“Right” is achieving similar playlist adds on Apple Music.) Though it’s unclear if the tune will receive a push at radio here in the U.S., it’s had about 9,400 tags on Shazam in under a week, missing the Future Hits list, but still earning some solid data with the little airplay it’s received thus far. At the same time, the song has also cleared 825,000 views on YouTube and should be at the million mark relatively soon. Will “Right” remain on the right path with the music consuming public after its release week? It would only be right... (Images courtesy of Island Records)
