Chart Notes:

  • Passenger‘s “Let Her Go” spends its second week at #1 on my chart, the first single to make it on from his album All The Little Lights. The song is up to #2 in the United Kingdom this week, and is currently on four Hot Adult Contemporary stations in the United States, waiting for the magic to happen.
  • Scoring her fifteenth top ten single on my chart, Kelly Clarkson climbs from 11-8 with “People Like Us”, passing Britney Spears (14) on the all-time list of female artists with the most top ten hits. Only Pink (20) and Christina Aguilera (18) have more.
  • Up to #16 this week with a leap of six notches is Hanson with “Get The Girl Back”, which now becomes the trio’s biggest hit on my chart in nine years. It was back in 2004 that “Penny & Me” rose up to #2. They still have a ways to go, but it’s always good to see an act put out quality work nearly twenty years into their career.
  • This week’s Highest Debut belongs to Train and newcomer Ashley Monroe with “Bruises”, at #38. The band’s former number-one, “Mermaid”, falls off this week. It’s the fourth single to reach my chart from their most recent album, California 37.
  • Also entering this week is “Dear Darlin'” from Olly Murs, which comes in at #39. Murs is the most successful act to make my chart from the U.K. version of The X Factor with six top 40 singles, pulling ahead of One Direction and their five.
