Chart Notes:

  • The revolving door at #1 continues this week as English rockers The 1975 earn their first #1 single on my chart, “Girls”, up 2-1. Their previous single, “Chocolate”, got as high as #2 for a week. (It’s currently at #26.) The quartet is currently playing a handful of radio station end-of-the-year concerts in the U.S., but they’ll be back for a full tour here starting in April.
  • Should the door to the top spot keep turning quickly, look for a fight between duo A Great Big World and boy band One Direction for the next reigning champ, both with popular ballads with an equal chance of hitting the top. It would be the first #1 for either act.
  • For the second week in a row, Christina Perri takes Biggest Mover honors with a gain of seven notches (29-22) for “Human”. Three additional songs advance six spots this week from Boy & Bear, Colbie Caillat and Gary Barlow.
  • Three of this week’s four debuts are by acts all charting with their third top 40 hits, a pretty interesting coincidence. The highest of them at #36 is John Newman with “Losing Sleep”, which follows “Love Me Again” (#22) and “Cheating” (#18) as the latest single from his album Tribute. Hedley is just behind him at #38 with “Anything”. The Canadian band first charted in 2006 with “On My Own” (#25), then with “Perfect” (#21) in 2010. Lastly, there’s Grouplove with “Shark Attack” at #39, the followup to the #5 “Ways To Go”. They’re best known for “Tongue Tied”, which spent two weeks at #1 last year. (For more: GrouploveHedley | John Newman)
  • Way down at #40 is the only newcomer to the chart, the Los Angeles-based quintet called MAGIC! and their debut single “Rude”. It’s currently a top 5 hit in Australia and looking for momentum in the U.S. next year. (Read my post on the single published this week.)
