Chart Notes:

  • Three songs are new to the top ten this week. Solo newcomer Charli XCX rises 14-10 with “Boom Clap”; it’s lifted from the soundtrack to The Fault In Our Stars. Leaping 13-8 is the newest single from the duo Train, titled “Angel In Blue Jeans”. “Angel” becomes the 14th top ten hit on my chart for the band since they arrived with in the fall of 1999 (and the 15th for leader Pat Monahan, who scored a #1 solo single in 2007 with “Her Eyes”.) Another chart mainstay, Maroon 5, advances 11-7 with “Maps”. It’s their 16th trek into the top ten in nearly eleven years.
  • After debuting two weeks ago at #38, Ed Sheeran‘s “Don’t” took a modest rise to #33, and this week, becomes the Biggest Mover on the countdown with a leap up to #24, a gain of nine notches. It’s also picking up pretty quickly at several radio formats. It’s the second single to chart from X; first release “Sing” recently peaked at #2 and now sits just outside the top ten.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is from the 25-year-old based singer and songwriter named Mary Lambert; she enters at #38 with “Secrets”. It’s taken from her forthcoming album Heart On My Sleeve, due in October. Back in 2010, it was OneRepublic who had another song called “Secrets” in the top 40, which ultimately peaked at #4. (Lambert’s single is not a remake, but perhaps it’ll climb just as high!)
  • At #39 is the week’s second debut, which becomes the fourth chart hit for the Australian sextet named Sheppard. The song is “Something’s Missing”, from their recent release Bombs Away. Though it’s not available in the U.S. as of yet, the set did debut at #2 on the ARIA charts. The band’s previous single, “Geronimo”, finds itself on Republic Records in the States after being picked up recently.
