Chart Notes:

  • After a huge debut at #26 last week, Passenger takes a leap up nine spots to #17 with “Scare Away The Dark”, his fourth top 40 single. On the chart dated April 7, 2013, one year ago, his debut hit “Let Her Go” took a similar jump from 25-18. Look for it to make the top ten in the next two weeks or so. “Scare” leads off Whispers, due June 10.
  • Their latest hit is “Already Home” and duo A Great Big World have proved that they are indeed at home on the countdown. They jump from 39-24 this week, the Biggest Mover on this week’s chart. It’s the followup to “Say” Something”, which peaked at #2. Parent album Is There Anybody Out There? remains one of my favorites of the year so far.
  • It appears that Foster The People‘s “Coming Of Age” has officially outgrown Alternative radio as it begins its descent out of the top ten, but followup “Best Friend” is already making some moves. On my chart, it climbs from 36-28. Other acts to break the top 40 on the Hot 100 talking about their best buds or people associated with them include Ral Donner & The Starfires in 1961, Queen in 1976, The Cars in 1978 and Brandy in 1995.
  • The week’s only debut at #38 belongs to Sheppard, the Australian sextet from Brisbane who charted twice last year with “Let Me Down Easy” (#10) and “Hold My Tongue” (#1 for 2 weeks). Their third entry, “Geronimo”, is their first for Decca Records and is already a top ten sales hit in their native country. Bombs away!
  • With new songs debuting next week from Ed Sheeran (“Sing”) and OneRepublic (“Love Runs Out”), it’s bound to be a busy week in music. Check back and see how they and all the rest of your favorites fare on next week’s countdown!
