Chart Notes:

  • We have a new #1! Bastille, the quartet out of London, take their very first hit up to the top. “Pompeii” comes from their debut album Bad Blood, which is out in the U.S. on September 3. They are also the second act during this year to score a #1 song with their first charting single. Speaking of which…
  • If you’re not in the loop about why Passenger is re-bulleted with his former #1, “Let Her Go”, perhaps this post of mine from Thursday will help. He also leaps from 5-2 with “Holes”, which is now one spot away from becoming his second #1 in a row. Once again, it was great to meet and chat with him. I think you’ll find that the Brighton-born singer won’t be vacating the top 5 for some time and that’s just fine.
  • Biggest Mover honors for the second week in a row belong to Katy Perry, up this week from 25-18 with “Roar”. In a twist this week, it’s placed next to “Brave” by Sara Bareilles, which falls from 14-17. Just thought that it needed a mention, not that you need to hear it any more. Thanks, Internet.
  • A year to the chart week that her last single, “Next To Me”, fell off after a #8 peak, Emeli Sandé finally manages to break the top 40 with her next U.S. release. “My Kind Of Love” is this week’s Highest Debut at #38. One spot below her is the musician whose last single, the #16 “I’ll Be Your Man”, fell off two years ago this week. James Blunt is back, beating again at #39 with “Bonfire Heart”. It’s from his forthcoming album titled Moon Landing.
  • Last, but not least, is the debut of a new band. The four-piece American Authors are originally from Boston and are now based out of Brooklyn, NY. “Best Day Of My Life” debuts at #40. Their self-titled EP is out on Tuesday.
