Chart Notes:

  • Two acts rank in the top ten with two singles each this week, and both are no strangers to the region. Deep into the top three, we find Graffiti6 with “The Bridge” (#2) and Jamie Scott with “My Hurricane” (#3), both with a lead vocal by Scott. The former is from the duo’s second album of the same name, while the latter is from the solo act’s forthcoming album, now due October 7. Once again, at #6 and #9, we find two spots occupied by Passenger, with the higher position belonging to former #1 “Scare Away The Dark” and the other filled by “Heart’s On Fire”.
  • This week’s Biggest Mover comes from the Madden Brothers; they are up 29-21 in their fifth week with “We Are Done”. Benji and Joel Madden have their first chart entry as a duo, but as members of Good Charlotte, they went top 40 six times between 2003 – 2010. Three of those hits cracked the top ten, all from 2002’s The Young and the Hopeless: “Girls & Boys” (#4), “Hold On” (#6) and “Lifestyles Of The Rich & Famous” (#1, four weeks).
  • After slowly making its way through the Mix and Next In Line, the tenth top 40 entry for singer/songwriter Jason Mraz is this week’s Highest Debut. Coming in at #39, “Love Someone” leads off Mraz’s Yes! album, due in stores on Tuesday. The set is a collaboration with the California quartet Raining Jane. Back in 2003, his debut single, “The Remedy (I Won’t Worry)”, ranked as my #1 song of the year.
  • Down at #40 is this week’s second debut, an infectious dance track from two sets of the producers, soloist Ferreck Dawn and the duo Redondo. “Love Too Deep” is set for a release in the U.K. in just under a month through 3Beat Productions. Both acts are celebrating their first time in the top 40 with this single, whose music video is just under 300,000 views over two accounts.
