Chart Notes:

  • We have a new one at the top this week! Advancing from 2-1 is “I Wanna Get Better” by Bleachers, a second project from Jack Antonoff to land at the top of my survey. Of course, as one third of fun., he scored three consecutive #1 songs in 2012. “Better” is currently top ten at Alternative radio. A full-length album is expected later this year.
  • I guess it’s no surprise that Graffiti6 lands the title of Biggest Mover after blasting into the countdown last week at #25. “The Bridge” leaps to #15 this week, a gain of ten notches. It’s the duo’s third single to rank on my chart and their first since 2012.
  • The week’s Highest Debut belongs to a familiar name — in fact, they just spent three weeks at #1 with “Magic” (now at #2.) Coldplay enters at #38 with “A Sky Full Of Stars”, the second radio single from the band’s forthcoming Ghost Stories album. The track was co-produced by Avicii in his first time working with the band. It’s currently charting highly at iTunes, where it was released on Friday.
  • The last time the late Michael Jackson appeared in the top 40 was in 2002 with a minor entry called “Butterflies”. Of course, Jackson passed away in 2009, but the singer’s second posthumous album, Xscape, is out on May 13. That first single from it, a collaboration with Justin Timberlake titled “Love Never Felt So Good”, debuts at #39. The original solo version was recorded as a demo in 1983 in a session with Paul Anka, who co-wrote it.
  • Down at #40 is the last of the three debuts this week, “Robbers” by The 1975. A video clip recently premiered for the single, which is the fourth to chart from their debut self-titled album. Previous release “Settle Down” peaked at #5 last month and is still in the top 20.
