Chart Notes:

  • Christina Perri is only “Human”, and her latest single is not only lovely, it stands atop my chart for a fifth week in a row. It’s now the longest running #1 song for a solo female on my list since Adele‘s massive “Rolling In The Deep”, which spent six weeks at #1 in February and March of 2011. Perri’s album, Head Or Heart, is now in stores on April 1, and that’s no April Fool. (I’d suggest you’re only a fool if you don’t purchase it.)
  • At 66 years and 10 months old, the “Rocket Man” himself is the owner of a new record in my chart’s history. Elton John duets with Gary Barlow on “Face To Face”, up 12-9 this week, which makes John the oldest performer to ever have a top ten single on my chart. This was previously held by Rod Stewart, who was 61 years and 9 months old when his cover of Creedence Clearwater Revival‘s “Have You Ever Seen The Rain?” reached my top ten in October 2006.
  • The Biggest Mover on this week’s chart belongs to singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson. She debuted last week at #39 and takes an eight spot jump to #31 with “Girls Chase Boys”. As far as my top 40 goes, the biggest charter out on the chase belongs to “Chasing Cars” from Snow Patrol, which spent four weeks at #1 in the fall of 2006.
  • This week’s only debut belongs to newcomer DJ Cassidy, who takes his first song into my top 40 along with two other established acts, Jessie J and Robin Thicke. The big collaboration, “Calling All Hearts”, debuts this week at #40. The DJ’s forthcoming album, Paradise Royale, is due for release in May.
  • Look for as many as four debuts on the list next week, including strong candidates from Irish duo Hudson Taylor and British rockers the Kaiser Chiefs.
