Would that gold record by your fave superstar be a hit if it was released by an unknown?

Is it the great relatable lyrics that move you emotionally? Or, could it be a ridiculously amazing vocal with a five octave range that puts a song on the charts? What about an infectious melody and groove that makes you wanna move, even in the most wrong places (seriously dude the copy machine room is NOT a dance floor)? Could a song become a hit just because the label got behind it with big marketing and promotion dollars? Or, is it the magic from the studio wizards who produce, mix and remix a track that push a song to the top? How about those beats that you hated on the first listen but love after the millionth? Or is it the stars aligned with a lot of luck the day the record dropped.

Maybe it's a combination of some or all of the above. I’m thinking if there was a recipe for a chart buster we’d all be blowin’ up the stage at Madison Square Garden this weekend.

In the meantime… I’m gonna be blowin’ up the decks this weekend with all those wicked hits you love. Expect to hear Katy PerryBirthday, Calvin HarrisSummer, Justin TimberlakeNot A Bad Thing, ShakiraEmpire, Neon TreesSleeping With A Friend and of course some Iggy Azalea. Plus brand new bangers from Tiesto, Enrique Iglesias, Cash Cash, and Kongos. I've also got a special mash-up that's gonna fill your ear canal and a whole lot more.

It’s all going down Friday & Saturday at 10pm on Mix 94.9!

Remember…if it's hot, if it's new and it makes you wanna move…you're In The Mix With HK.
