Chart Notes:

  • Stay putting at #1 for the second week running is The Script with their fifth #1 single on my chart, “Superheroes”. This marks their 19th week total atop the survey, which started with the eight week run of “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved” back in 2009. Look for the single to debut in the top three on the Singles Chart over in the United Kingdom this weekend, which will mark their third time entering in the region on that survey.
  • Just outside the top ten are three great songs looking to break in next week: “Secrets” by Mary Lambert, holding at #12 for the third week in a row, “Unpack Your Heart” by Phillip Phillips, climbing to #13, and “Unbreakable” by Jamie Scott, which takes a six notch leap to #14. All are very worthy contenders, though the two males have been there before, while newcomer Lambert hasn’t. We’ll see what happens.
  • After entering last week at #39, the current hit for Foster The People takes the title of this week’s Biggest Mover. The inquisitive “Are You What You Want To Be?” is up to #30 this week, a gain of nine notches for the third top 40 single from Supermodel. The song goes to Alternative radio on Tuesday and should rank there relatively quickly.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is the second entry for Jessie Ware, who debuts at #39 with “Say You Love Me”. Ware rose to the top 20 last year with “Wildest Moments” and did an uncredited backing vocal on Mayer Hawthorne‘s “Her Favorite Song”, a #2 single. “Say” is taken from her forthcoming album Tough Love, due later next month.
  • Also, at #40 is this week’s second debut, “Never Been In Love” by American quintet Cobra Starship and Swedish duo Icona Pop, together for the first time. For you chart trivia buffs, the title has cracked the top 40 only once on the Hot 100: in 1982, former Eagles member Randy Meisner went to #28 with his song of the same name.
