Chart Notes:

  • As the old Irish proverb states, “A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything.” Well, not only are Neon Trees “sleeping” on their latest single, but they may as well be having a nice chuckle too. Their sixth top 40 entry becomes their second #1 single, as “Sleeping With A Friend” advances 2-1. It’s their first song to reach the top since debut single “Animal”, which spent four weeks at #1 in the fall of 2010. This, of course, displaces Christina Perri‘s “Human”, which falls to #2 after six weeks at the throne.
  • For the second week in a row, the Biggest Mover on the countdown belongs to newcomer DJ Cassidy, along with chart veterans Jessie J and Robin Thicke. “Calling All Hearts” leaps from 31-24, the first single from Paradise Royale, due in May. A video clip for the song debuts early this week.
  • This week’s Highest Debut at #36 belongs to Bleachers, a new project from fun.‘s Jack Antonoff. The trio was responsible for three back-to-back #1 singles in 2012; can his new act also reach the top? We’ll see. “I Wanna Get Better” goes to Alternative and AAA radio next month.
  • At #39 is the other debut this week, “Be Okay” by Oh Honey. The Brooklyn based duo of Danielle Bouchard and Mitchy Collins are the newest members of the Atlantic Records family after signing with the label late last month. I first heard the song about five weeks ago when it was added to Hits 1 on SiriusXM. Way to go, you two!
