Chart Notes:

  • It started with “Love Story”, then “You Belong With Me” and then “Mine”, and now Taylor Swift earns her latest and fourth #1 on my chart with “Shake It Off”, advancing 2-1 in only its seventh week. “Shake” leads off 1989, due on October 27 in what very well could be the largest opening week of 2014. Of course, we are all curious if this will be Swift’s third consecutive million seller within that first frame. Stay tuned!
  • In a pretty packed week with five new entries on the chart, One Direction leaps in at #30 with the Highest Debut, “Steal My Girl”. It’s the first release to be issued from their forthcoming album Four, due on November 17. “Steal” marks their 12th song to reach my top 40, seven of which have gone top ten. The biggest, “Story Of My Life”, held the #1 spot for three weeks in December.
  • 27-year-old German DJ Robin Schulz has really made a name for himself in 2014 with several hit remixes across the European charts. His recent #1 in the United Kingdom, a remix of a four-year-old recording by Lilly Wood & The Prick called “Prayer In C”, is new this week at #34. The single now begins its quest at radio here with adds in several major markets this far.
  • Further down, singer/songwriter James Blunt comes in at #38 with “When I Find Love Again”. It’s his 11th entry to make my chart, two of which went to #1: “You’re Beautiful” in 2005 and “Stay The Night” in 2010. Below him is Charli XCX, new at #39 with “Break The Rules”, the followup to “Boom Clap”. Lastly, newcomer Eden XO bows in at #40 with “Too Cool To Dance”.
  • On next week’s survey, watch out for potential debuts from Olly Murs, along with Travie McCoy on “Wrapped Up”, and Passenger‘s latest single, simply called “27”. What other surprises does Q4 have up its sleeves for us? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
