Chart Notes:

  • After a week at #1, “I Wanna Get Better” by Bleachers falls to #3 as New York duo A Great Big World settle into the top spot with “Already Home”. It’s their third single release from Is There Anybody Out There?, released earlier this year. It does one better than previous single “Say Something”, which ultimately spent two weeks at #2. A video for the song features actor/singer Darren Criss from Glee, as well as actress Jessica Szohr.
  • In a slow week for climbing records, two songs tie for the Biggest Mover on this week’s chart, both of which debuted in the top 40 last week. The late Michael Jackson, along with Justin Timberlake, advance up 39-33 with “Love Never Felt So Good”, while Coldplay climb 38-32 with “A Sky Full Of Stars”. Both songs are currently top ten in the overall stats on iTunes.
  • Three songs debut on this week’s chart, the highest coming in at #37. “Burning Gold” is the second top 40 single from the second album by Christina Perri, Head Or Heart. The first, “Human”, spent six weeks at the top in January and February. (It’s still in the top 20.) A lyric video was released earlier this week for “Gold”. Should it break the top ten, it will become her fourth entry to do.
  • What happens when you combine dance music with the leader of the quack? Nope, it’s not “Disco Duck”, it’s another entry from the duo who call themselves Duck Sauce. The terrific twosome of Armand Van Helden and A-Trak debut at #38 with “NRG”, which flips the chorus of a 1984 cut for singer Melissa Manchester also titled “Energy”. The duo’s first entry, “Barbra Streisand”, hit the top 20 in late 2010.
  • Finally, at #39, is the latest top 40 single from rockers Daughtry. They’ve turned up the pop on their latest album, Baptized, and come up with another charting hit in “Battleships”. It goes to Hot AC radio this week. Including solo entries by lead singer Chris Daughtry, this is the band’s twelfth time in the countdown; their first, “It’s Not Over”, debuted in November 2006 and peaked at #5.
