Chris Wallace Earns Back-to-Back 'Top 40' Pop Hits With First Two Singles
Singer, songwriter and rising pop star CHRIS WALLACE has garnered lots of recognition for his infectious and propulsive Top 25 hit "Remember When (Push Rewind)," putting CHRIS in an elite group of artists to land a Top 25 pop hit at Top 40 Radio with their debut single. Now with his second single, "Keep Me Crazy," WALLACE has reached a new career milestone, earning back-to-back Top 40 pop hits with his first two singles. "Keep Me Crazy" is currently #37 on the chart and continuing to rise. With this distinction, his label ThinkSay is the only independent record company on the Top 40 charts. Both songs, "Remember When (Push Rewind)" and "Keep Me Crazy," are available now on iTunes.
The video was directed by Justin Baldoni--who also shot the "Remember When (Push Rewind)" video which has surpassed two million views on YouTube (http://youtu.be/stKHUgIlNSA)--and features a cameo by actor Eric Roberts and fellow ThinkSay artist Keaton Simons. During filming, Access Hollywood visited CHRIS on the Los Angeles set; check out their interview with him here: http://t.co/sWx1JEMetY. Access Hollywood will also be the first to premiere the video this weekend (12/14 & 12/15) on their TV show broadcast (check local NBC listings for air times as it varies in each market). On Monday, December 16, Vevo.com will premiere it online across its website and social media channels.
CHRIS describes the inspiration behind the song and video: "I wrote 'Keep Me Crazy' about this crazy rollercoaster ride of a relationship that I had while writing my album and the video basically starts I'm at psychiatrist office and it goes into this inkblot test and it goes into this crazy imaginary land."
"Keep Me Crazy" can be heard coast-to-coast with adds at over 40 pop stations including SiriusXM's 20 on 20 (Channel 3), KREV in San Francisco, CA, KFRH in Las Vegas, NV, WHTI in Richmond, VA, KBFF in Portland, OR, WNCI in Columbus, OH, KMVA in Phoenix, AZ, WVHT in Norfolk, VA, WHKF in Harrisburg, PA, WSPK in Newburgh, NY, WPLW in Raleigh, NC, WLAN in Lancaster, PA, WAYV in Atlantic City, NJ and many more, with others coming on board daily.
WALLACE is quickly establishing himself as a powerful force in pop music. The dynamic performer's debut album PUSH REWIND (ThinkSay Records/Caroline Distribution) was hailed "the best pop album you probably haven't discovered yet" by Entertainment Weekly. Meanwhile, iTunes not only picked "Remember When (Push Rewind)" as one of the best singles of 2012, they also selected PUSH REWIND as the Breakthrough Pop Album of 2012 and one of the Best Albums of 2012. On the radio front, Los Angeles' Top 40 station 102.7 KIIS FM followed New York's Z100, by adding "Remember When (Push Rewind)" to their rotation.
The massive success of "Remember When (Push Rewind)" also earned CHRIS several national TV looks. When CHRIS was invited to perform "Remember When (Push Rewind)" on Jimmy Kimmel Live!" (1/22), he also delivered a rousing version of "Keep Me Crazy." CHRIS also performed "Remember When (Push Rewind)" on "Live! with Kelly & Michael" (2/20), in addition to VH1's "Big Morning Buzz Live" and the nationally syndicated "Daytime." He also caught the attention of USA Today which ran an "On The Verge" piece at its website: http://usat.ly/UosSBt.
