Chart Notes:

  • Biggest Mover this week comes from newcomers MAGIC!, up 33-26 with their first hit, “Rude”. The quartet is originally from the Toronto area and are now based in Los Angeles. The song is currently charting in five countries, including Australia, Canada and New Zealand. (My profile post on the group)
  • The Highest Debut this week is the first top 40 hit for two 22-year-old acts: producer and writer Peter Thomas and singer Betty Who. “All Of You” is available for free on Thomas’s SoundCloud account and enters this week at #38. Thomas hails from 45 minutes down the road from here via Route 146 in Rhode Island, while Who was born on the other side of the world in Australia.
  • His album ranked as my favorite of 2013; now, Mayer Hawthorne‘s fourth song to chart from it debuts at #39. A video recently premiered for “Reach Out Richard” using a series of GoPro cameras set at different angles, and those images from various Hawthorne shows were compiled into one video along with some home movies. The singer’s previous single, “Crime”, ranks at #25 this week.
  • Finally, at #40, is the fourth hit for the British quartet Bastille, and luckily enough, all four rank in the top 40 at the moment! That’s the first time that’s happened since 2006. “Bad Blood” was originally released in the U.K. last year, and now, it’s the second U.S. single from the album of the same name. I guess that means things aren’t so “bad” at all. Look for it at Alternative radio early next year.
