Chart Notes:

  • At seven weeks at #1, “Already Home” by A Great Big World becomes the longest running #1 of the year, surpassing the six weeks totaled by both “Human” by Christina Perri and “Sleeping With A Friend” by Neon Trees. Will the duo make it to eight frames at the top? Not if Clean Bandit and Jess Glynne or Passenger have their way. There’s a mighty competition brewing here.
  • Up ten spots from 39-29 is the now duo Train with this week’s Biggest Mover, “Angel In Blue Jeans”. As expected, it’s already building quickly at Hot AC radio; being a staple at the format helps. Back in 2003, the band released a single titled “Calling All Angels”, so as far as heavenly hits go, it seems as though they’ve landed on Cloud 9. “Jeans” is the first single from Bulletproof Picasso, their seventh studio album, due September 16.
  • The week’s only debut is from pop/rockers Maroon 5, who enter at #35 with “Maps”. It’s the first single from their forthcoming album V, due September 2. Three out of their last four leadoff singles went to #1 on my chart, with the only exception being 2003’s “Harder To Breathe”, which peaked at #2. Can their latest pull off the trick? The quintet will certainly need a new GPS if they look to navigate their top-selling track to the top spot.
  • Look for a few debuts in the top 40 next week, with several newcomers at the top of the Next In Line. Then again, Grouplove could earn their third charting hit from Spreading Rumours in “I’m With You”, or Jason Mraz chart with his tenth entry, “Love Someone”. Also, keep an eye out for Graffiti6‘s “U Got The Sunshine” from The Bridge and newcomers Heymous Molly with “Life’s A Beach”, both new to the Mix. We’ll see what happens next Sunday!
