Chart Notes:

  • With recent radio additions in Boston, New York City and on satellite radio, Passenger‘s “Let Her Go” is making its move into the United States. This week, it spends a fifth week at #1, tied for the second-longest run of the 2013 chart year. It remains in the top 5 in countries like Australia and the United Kingdom.
  • There are big movers up, down and around the top 40 this week, but the largest of them all is the collaboration between Pink and Lily Rose Cooper, “True Love”. It soars from 40-26, a gain of fourteen notches. It sees a release in the United Kingdom on July 8, with a Stateside release shortly after that.
  • After weeks of two debuts here and two debuts there, we finally have a week with five new songs in the top 40. The highest of them is at #36, the first single to make my chart for California indie rock band Family Of The Year. Their “Hero” got a bit of airplay, including a #1 rank on the AAA radio chart, but failed to make my top 40. Their latest is a summer jam called “St. Croix”, which is an even better song.
  • There are two other newcomers amongst the debuts this week: Jessie Ware gets her first credited top 40 single with the #37 “Wildest Moments”. She also provides the background vocals on the song at #20, “Her Favorite Song” by Mayer Hawthorne, but doesn’t receive an official feature. British quartet Bastille make it in for the first time at #39 with “Pompeii”. It’s featured on their first album, Bad Blood.
  • Two other chart regulars stomp into the survey this week. OneRepublic is counting themselves in at #38 with “Counting Stars”, their ninth single to make my chart. It’s the third from their album Native, following “Feel Again” (#6) and “If I Lose Myself” (#3). Rounding out the debuts at #40 is Five For Fighting with “What If”, which also happens to be his ninth top 40 hit. It’s also his first in three years.
  • If you’re thinking “Hey, wait, I haven’t heard some of these songs yet, are they even out?”, don’t worry, you’re not alone. I’ve just heard a few of them ahead of time. You can hear the Five For Fighting song (and read my review of it) here, while posts for the Grouplove, Karmin and Tony Lucca songs will be coming on Monday and Tuesday. Stay tuned!
