Chart Notes:

  • After debuting last week at #38, “Secrets” from Mary Lambert takes the week’s Biggest Mover, up nine spots to #29. Earlier this year, the singer/songwriter bubbled under with “She Keeps Me Warm”, which accumulated some airplay at the Hot AC format. Lambert was originally born in the town of Everett, WA, just north of the Seattle area. Other female soloists from the state to hit my top 40 include A Fine Frenzy and Stacie Orrico.
  • Gliding onto the top 40 at #30, this week’s Highest Debut, is Irish trio The Script with “Superheroes”. This marks the eighth chart hit for the group, who went straight to #1 with their debut release “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved” back in the spring of 2009. It spent eight frames there. All seven of their previous singles have reached a minimum peak of #6, with four going all the way to the top. We’ll see how high this one flies soon.
  • Their album is More Than Just A Dream and Fitz & The Tantrums have one more single to rank on the survey. This time around, I’m digging “Fools Gold”, which shines at #39. It’s their fourth top 40 single; their first, “MoneyGrabber”, spent a week at #1 in 2011. Their last two, “Out Of My League” and “The Walker”, both stalled at #2 for several weeks.
  • Lastly, down at #40, are newcomers Mausi from London; they make a splash with their debut chart single, “My Friend Has A Swimming Pool”. It’s out in the U.K. on August 17. It’s the second such title looking to front crawl up the top 40; the other, “Swim” by the rock band Jack’s Mannequin, peaked at #20 in 2009.
  • On next week’s chart, the first of August, look for debuts from singer/songwriter Phillip Phillips and U.K. based boy band Rixton, along with one to two other new entries. Tuesday also marks a big date for fresh pop releases, including the comeback single for Hilary Duff (“Chasing The Sun”) and a three-way collaboration featuring Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj (“Bang Bang”).
