Chart Notes:

  • We have a new one at the top this week — leaping from 3-1 is Coldplay, who now have their fifth #1 on my top 40 with “Magic”. It’s the first radio single from the group’s forthcoming album, Ghost Stories, due on May 19. Their previous four chart-toppers were 2008’s “Viva La Vida”, 2011’s “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” and “Paradise”, and 2013’s “Atlas”.
  • Look for four songs to jump into the top ten next week, the most action upward into that region during one frame in several years. Still, with hot singles by A Great Big World (which takes the Biggest Mover title for the second week in a row), Clean Bandit/Jess Glynne, Passenger and Rixton, it’s certainly worth accommodating for. Will all four be able to reach the top spot? Highly doubtful, but with a faster turnover rate, anything can happen.
  • Of this week’s four debuts, Ed Sheeran debuts the highest at #30 with “Sing”, and no, I’m afraid that it’s not a hot Carpenters remake. (That would sound pretty peculiar anyways.) It’s his fourth chart entry to date; his biggest, “The A Team”, spent a week at #1 in April 2012. His sophomore album, X (read as “multiply”), streets on June 23.
  • Further down are the other three debuts this week: Katy Perry lands at #38 with the latest single from PRISM, “Birthday”, while Canadian duo Chromeo enter the chart for the very first time at #39 with “Jealous (I Ain’t With It)”. Finally, at #40, is one of three songs in the countdown for boy band One Direction. “You & I” is the U.S. followup to “Story Of My Life”, which recently spent three weeks at #1.
  • Next week looks like another hectic week for debuts with potential entries from British DJ/producer SecondCity, the yet-to-be-identified “disco supergroup” known as Disco Mystery and Canadian rockers MAGIC!. Who gets in and who gets shut out? Find out next Sunday.
