Chart Notes:

  • Looking to hold the top spot in the U.K. this week after a midweek report put him at #1, the Chicago DJ based in London named SecondCity jumps 13-10 on my chart this week with “I Wanna Feel”. It’s his first entry. The song is a flip of Toni Braxton‘s 1995 hit “You’re Makin’ Me High”. Though Braxton’s most successful days came before my chart began in 1999, she had a top ten hit of her own when “He Wasn’t Man Enough” peaked there in 2000.
  • The week’s Biggest Mover is from a familiar name, Jamie Scott with “My Hurricane”. In its second week in the top 40, “My” rises from 35-28. It leads off the album of the same name, due in stores on September 9. Scott also sings lead on “The Bridge” by his duo Graffiti6, up to #7 this week, while he co-wrote the #16 song, “You & I” by One Direction. That’s one hurricane full of hits!
  • He first made my chart as a part of the group Dream Street when “It Happens Every Time” charted for two weeks in 2001. Now, a 27-year-old Jesse McCartney earns this week Highest Debut with a solo number, “Superbad”, in at #39. His latest album, In Technicolor, is due in July. McCartney’s song officially goes to radio in a week and a half at the CHR format via label Eight0Eight and the INgrooves Music Group.
  • Also debuting in the top 40 is a group that’s gaining a lot of attention online and on SiriusXM’s Alt Nation. They’re a quartet who call themselves Young Rising Sons, entering at #40 with “High”. They’re the latest act to work with Dirty Canvas Productions, the same group behind the rise of American Authors. Terrestrial radio will eventually catch onto this one over the summer and fall; it’s catchy and ready to break ahead of the pack.
