CHRIS WALLACE’s debut album PUSH REWIND (ThinkSay Records) continues to earn the rising pop star recognition and praise. The success has been propelled by the album’s first single “Remember When (Push Rewind),” which continues the singer, songwriter and musician’sseven-week reign on the Top 40 chart, currently #32 and climbing. The official music video for the infectious and propulsive dance hitfollows CHRIS as he goes back in time to repair an off-course relationship. Both the official video and lyric video have been viewed over one million times. Watch the video here.
The buzz on CHRIS continues to build as just this week “Remember When (Push Rewind)” was added to rotation on the #1 Top 40 radio station in the country, New York’s Z100. This news follows the recent addition of the track to Boston’s Kiss 108 playlist. Also, this past Saturday (12/8), CHRIS made his debut on the nationally syndicated weekly radio program, Ryan Seacrest’s “American Top 40.”
“I was shocked and excited to hear the news that Z100 was playing ‘Remember When,’” exclaims WALLACE. “I’ve dreamt about having my songs played on the radio and now that it’s actually happening, and on the biggest pop station in the country, I’m humbled…and excited to keep pushing!”
Early on Entertainment Weekly took notice of the “punchy pop sheen” (8/7/12) of “Remember When (Push Rewind).” They went on to hailPUSH REWIND as “the best pop album you probably haven’t discovered yet.” (10/19/12) iTunes also affirmed massive support ofWALLACE and featured his album on the “What’s Hot” list, housed on the store’s homepage, and prominently on the front Pop page. In their look back at the year in music, iTunes also named Push Rewind one of the Best Albums of 2012 and “Remember When (Push Rewind)” as one of the Best Songs of 2012, alongside the likes of Taylor Swift, One Direction, Katy Perry, Pink, Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, Rihanna, Carly Rae Jepsen and Alicia Keys.
The Indiana native also recently (11/13) made his national TV debut on VH1’s “Big Morning Buzz Live” when WALLACE and his band performed “Remember When (Push Rewind).” Watch the performance now here. The response was so enthusiastic that VH1 launched a five-week promotion with WALLACE, adding song snippets to their rotation to air in between programs. “Remember When (Push Rewind)” was also added to Fuse’s Pop Hits music hour earlier this month.
