Chart Notes:

  • As predicted last week, it’s a particularly active top ten this week as four songs enter into it. Two are by newcomers: Clean Bandit/Jess Glynne at #10 and Rixton at #7. For duo A Great Big World at #8, it’s their second top ten to date following the #2 “Say Something” from a few months ago. Lastly, there’s Passenger at #9, who is now four for four with top ten records dating back to his chart debut last year. His previous three, “Let Her Go”, “Holes” and “The Wrong Direction”, all climbed to #1.
  • Moving up twelve spots to #18 is the week’s Biggest Mover, “Sing” by Ed Sheeran. With a fast start at both radio and retail, it is well on its way to becoming one of this summer’s hottest singles. He recently performed it and a new song, “Don’t”, on Saturday Night Live.
  • Two debuts enter the chart this week — the highest, at #36, is by newcomer SecondCity. The DJ and producer was born in Chicago and is now based in London. “I Wanna Feel” interpolates the classic 1995 single by Toni Braxton, “You’re Makin’ Me High.” The song is out in the U.K. on May 25 and is already looking like a future winner on the charts across the pond.
  • Down at #39 is the second top 40 hit for the Canadian band MAGIC!, who recently peaked at #2 with debut single “Rude”. Their latest is “Don’t Kill The Magic”, which gives us two magical titles on the chart this week. (The other, by Coldplay, is at #1 for a second frame and is simply titled “Magic”.)
