Chart Notes:

  • Biggest Mover this week is by Bleachers, the new group featuring fun.‘s Jack Antonoff. The first single from their forthcoming album is “I Wanna Get Better”, soaring from 36-26. They’re set to play at SXSW this Wednesday night at a showcase for television network Palladia.
  • Taking a huge leap into the countdown at #28 is the latest entry for Coldplay; this week’s Highest Debut is “Magic”, the quartet’s 14th single to reach my top 40. It’s the first radio track from their forthcoming album Ghost Stories. The band has a total of four #1 hits on my chart, from 2008’s “Viva La Vida” to last year’s “Atlas”. Can they make it five? The chances look pretty good, if I do say so myself…
  • The only newcomers to debut on the chart this week is the British quartet Rixton, who come in at #39 with “Me And My Broken Heart”. Their EP of the same name will be released digitally on March 18. The group recently signed to Interscope Records and are currently managed by Scooter Braun, whose empire of acts like Justin Bieber and The Wanted has crumbled in recent months.
  • Lastly, down at #40, is a new single from former American Idol winner Phillip Phillips. “Raging Fire” is the first release from his forthcoming second album, due later this spring. His biggest entry to date, “Gone, Gone, Gone”, rose to #2 for two weeks last year.
