Today’s New Tunes Tuesday hit is currently going for adds on Top 40 stations across the US. So, if you’re in some of the bigger markets you might be hearing this track “pop” a bit over the next few weeks. I think it might have potential on a number of other formats as well, including stations slanted toward R&B and HipHop as well as some of your more open satellite stations. I also think it’s got some potential on Alternative at some point. Anyway, I thought it was worth listening to here on New Tunes Tuesday, so I’m happy to share. I really dig the monster chorus!

As far as I can tell, “One Block Radius” has yet to release an official video for “You Got Me”, but the YouTube vid below will at least allow you to take a quick look-see at the band and the links below will help fill you in a bit more on what they’re about. Check out the video for the band’s new single “You Got Me” below:

Three things of interest about “One Block Radius” thing might help you if you aspire to a career in entertainment:
