Chart-topping recording artist Charles Jenkins – who is best known for his Billboard Magazine No. 1 hits “War” and “Awesome” – has ventured out into new musical waters with his hypnotically catchy new beat “Winning.” The uplifting anthem of hope and determination was serviced to Urban Adult Contemporary radio earlier this week and has already earned status as the second most added song in the UAC genre with ten new station adds on the Mediabase chart and seven new adds on the Billboard chart.
The song is taking off in a big way with fresh airplay on KRMP (Oklahoma City, OK), WAKB (Augusta, GA), WIMX (Toledo, OH), WMPZ (Chattanooga, TN), WTTH (Atlantic City, NJ), WXST (Charleston, SC), WAGH (Columbus, GA), KDKS (Shreveport, LA), WTUG (Tuscaloosa, AL) and KOKY (Little Rock, AR). The tune is inspiring people to post #Handsup selfies all over cyberspace. “I wanted to lift people up with a different sound and spread some #positiveair on the radio airwaves and social media,” says Jenkins. “There’s so much bad news, negativity, violence and hopelessness in the world right now that we just wanted to send out some encouragement and remind everyone that they can win and be upbeat in this thing called life.”
“Winning” anchors Jenkins’ debut solo album “Think About These Things” (Inspired People/Empire Distribution) that releases to brick-and-mortar stores and digital service providers such as the iTunes Store (http://smarturl.it/TATT
