Chart Notes:

  • A Great Big World continue their hold at the chart’s summit with “Already Home”, now in its fifth frame there. It’s taken from their first-length album, Is There Anybody Out There?,  which debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 earlier this year. “Home” is the longest-running #1 song by a duo (outside of a duet between two solo performers) on my chart since 2003, when the brother-sister act Boomkat spent six weeks at the top with “The Wreckoning”.
  • Advancing from 14-9, “A Sky Full Of Stars” becomes the tenth top ten hit on my list for Coldplay and the second to reach the region from their recent #1 album Ghost Stories. Of those ten, five have reached the top, including “Magic” from earlier this year. Can “Sky” become their sixth song to pull off the trick? Stay tuned!
  • The week’s Biggest Mover is from the New Jersey quartet Young Rising Sons; last week, they debuted at #40, and now they’re up seven to #33 with “High”. The song is a top 5 airplay hit on SiriusXM’s Alt Nation and also featured in an advertisement for NBC’s summer programming. Only one other single simply titled “High” went for a climb up my chart. That song, a totally different composition by James Blunt, peaked at #3 in 2006.
  • They made a name for themselves on Vine (and YouTube) and now the married duo who call their act Us The Duo lands this week’s Highest Debut at #39 with “No Matter Where You Are”. It goes to Hot AC radio later this month. It’s also the title track from their second album, available now digitally and due for a physical release on June 16.
  • Also debuting this week is a solo cut from Jess Glynne, who currently ranks in the top five as a featured vocalist on Clean Bandit‘s “Rather Be”. Now out on her own, she enters with “Right Here” at #40. It’s released in the U.K. on July 13 and is expected to be another big hit for the 24-year-old singer from London.
