Chart Notes:

  • Up from 8-5 this week, Phillip Phillips garners his third top five hit on my top 40 with “Unpack Your Heart”. It’s the followup to “Raging Fire”, which climbed to #3 in April. Both singles are from his sophomore effort Behind The Light. Only one other male American Idol winner can claim as many top five hits and that is David Cook: in 2008 and 2009, “The Time Of My Life” (#1), “Light On” (#1) and “Come Back To Me” (#2) landed him that feat.
  • He never landed in the top ten as the lead singer of the band Jack’s Mannequin, but as Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness, the 32-year-old easily takes his latest single in there, climbing 14-10 in his eighth week on with “Cecilia And The Satellite”. The soloist’s self-titled album is due October 14 and several pre-release songs from the set, including newest release “Canyon Run”, are available now at digital retailers.
  • After debuting last week at #40, the latest entry from Maroon 5 takes a hefty 12 spot jump to #28, “Animals”. It’s the second single to chart from the group’s album V and you’ve likely heard it in a commercial for the new Kia Soul model. Radio has been responding to it quite well in the past week and it should quickly rise to the top of the pack.
  • The only debut this week is from the Canadian band MAGIC!, new at #40 with “Let Your Hair Down”. It’s the act’s third time on the chart; “Rude” reached #2 in March, while “Don’t Kill The Magic”, the title track from their album, topped out at #26 in June. “Hair” is serviced to Hot AC radio next month.
  • Next week could feature as many as five debuts in the top 40, with the majority of them by female acts like Charli XCX and Eden XO, both in the Top 10 Next In Line. Also, watch for the splashy debut of “Steal My Girl” by One Direction, which premieres on Monday.
