On this day in music history: July 2, 1991 - Into The Great Wide Open, the eighth studio album by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers is released. Produced by Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne, it is recorded at Rumbo Recorders, Studio C, Canoga Park, CA and M.C. Studios from Late 1990 - Early 1991. Released over two years after Petty’s first solo album “Full Moon Fever”, it is the first new album by The Heartbreakers since “Let Me Up (I’ve Had Enough)”, released four years earlier in 1987. Having worked together on the Traveling Wilburys and “Full Moon Fever” projects, Petty invites Jeff Lynne (Electric Light Orchestra) to co-produce the new album. It spins off three hit singles including “Learning To Fly” (#1 Mainstream Rock, #28 Pop), and the title track (#4 Mainstream Rock, #92 Pop). The memorable music video for “Into The Great Wide Open” (directed by Julien Temple), features actors Johnny Depp and Faye Dunaway. It is The Heartbreakers last release on MCA Records before they sign with Warner Bros. Out of print since receiving only a very limited release on vinyl in 1991, it is remastered and reissued as a 180 gram LP in June of 2017. “Into The Great Wide Open” peaks at number thirteen on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified 2x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

Blackpink Is First K-Pop Girl Group to Debut on Canadian Hot 100

The excitement over Blackpink’s new single “Playing With Fire” is being felt everywhere as it charts on the Canadian Hot 100 this week.

The girl group’s synth-heavy dance track debuts at No. 92 on the Canadian Hot 100 chart dated Nov. 26, 2016. The Canadian Hot 100 tracks the most popular songs in Canada across all genres, ranked by radio airplay audience impressions, sales data and streaming activity data. It is one of nine new tracks to hit the Canadian Hot 100 this week including new entries from Future, The Chainsmokers, Big Sean and Marshmello.

The feat makes them the first K-pop girl group to chart on the Canadian Hot 100. While female stars like CL have scored entries on the tally, Blackpink is K-pop’s first girl band to do so.

So far, BTS is the only other K-pop act to chart a song on the Canadian Hot 100 this year when “Blood, Sweat & Tears” debuted at No. 86 earlier this month. Only an elite group of K-pop acts have charted on the ranking so far including PSY, EXO, BTS and CL.

“Playing With Fire” is one of two lead singles from the quartet’s Square Two EP, that rose to a new peak of No. 2 on World Albums for the chart dated Nov. 26, 2016. Meanwhile, “Playing With Fire” relinquished its No. 1 slot on World Digital Songs and currently sits at No. 2 on the list.
