Chart Notes:

  • Two weeks ago, it was tied for the Biggest Mover, and now Coldplay grabs the title once more for “A Sky Full Of Stars”, up eight this week from 26-18. It’s the second hit from the band’s new album, Ghost Stories, which looks to become their latest #1 album on the Billboard 200. There aren’t many more notable moves upward within the top 40, but several songs are up four spots, including tracks from Christina Perri and Neon Trees.
  • The Highest Debut of the Week marks the first solo entry from Graffiti6 leader Jamie Scott on my chart, “My Hurricane”, entering at #35. A forthcoming album is due for release this fall. The debut of “Hurricane” coincides with the run of “The Bridge”, the title track from the duo’s second album, which was independently released after label troubles with Capitol Records. How will this Jamie vs. Jamie battle proceed? Stay tuned to find out!
  • After taking over Europe with their first single, the duo of Clemens Rehbein and Philipp Dausch, better known as Milky Chance, debut on my own top 40 with “Stolen Dance”. It’s in at #38. Promoted in the U.S. by Republic Records, it’s already building on the AAA and Alternative airwaves, where it will inevitably take a slow run up. “Dance” is taken from their album Sadnecessary, which has yet to be released here.
  • After spending a week at #1 on my chart last November with “Best Day Of My Life”, the former Boston and now Brooklyn based quartet American Authors are writing another musical memoir at #39, “Believer”. The single was originally serviced to Alternative radio last year and tanked, barely scratching the top 50. Now, given their bigger profile thanks to “Day” and a slightly new mix, more people will surely be believing in it.
