Chart Notes:

  • Up from 40-34, Jess Glynne takes this week’s Biggest Mover with “Right Here”, out in the U.K. next month. The song was produced by duo Gorgon City; their new release, “Here For You”, looks to be a top seller over there as it debuts this week. Glynne also appears on this week’s #4 song, “Rather Be”, with the act Clean Bandit. You can see that song performed live on the TODAY Show on Thursday, the 19th.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is already a top ten sales hit on iTunes thanks to the popular soundtrack from the movie The Fault In Our Stars. Charli XCX goes for a fancy frolic into the countdown at #38 with “Boom Clap”, her first song to reach my top 40. The 22-year-old performer is originally from the town of Stevenage, England and should be out with a new studio album later this year.
  • Racking up their 18th single to enter my chart, the shrinking Train, now down to a duo, debuts at #39 with “Angel In Blue Jeans”. It’s the first single from their forthcoming album Bulletproof Picasso, released on September 16. By the way, the first top 40 hit about blue jeans goes way back to 1962, when Jimmy Clanton rose to #7 on the Hot 100 that September with “Venus In Blue Jeans”.
  • Lastly, at #40, is a debut from The Madden Brothers titled “We Are Done”. Benji and Joel previously charted as two members of Good Charlotte, best known for “Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous”, which spent four weeks at #1 on my chart in 2003. The duo’s first album on their own, Greetings From California…, hits stores on October 7.
