Chart Notes:

  • It was back in August that Jamie Scott spent his final of four weeks at #1 with “My Hurricane”, the title track from his forthcoming album. Now, he’s back with his second solo chart-topper in “Unbreakable”, which advances 2-1. It’s the fourth total #1 for the 30-year-old British performer, who also scored two in a row with Graffiti6 in 2012. Scott still has three songs on the chart this week, with “Hurricane” at #15 and his duo’s “The Bridge” at #36.
  • If you’re looking for big movers on the countdown, you’re out of luck, at least this week. There are four songs tied at a movement of five spots upward, with an additional three songs up four spots. Maybe there will be some shaking up on the next chart. However, James Blunt, Olly Murs / Travie McCoy and Take That all look top 20 bound in the coming weeks, while One Direction could break the top ten.
  • This week’s Highest Debut saw a video premiere this week: it’s “27” by my top artist of last year, Passenger, bowing in at #38. This marks the third release to chart from his album Whispers, following “Scare Away The Dark” (#1) and “Heart’s On Fire” (#9). The singer and songwriter is currently on tour on Europe and heads to Australia in 2015.
  • Also debuting with a third single is Ed Sheeran, in at #39 with “Thinking Out Loud”, from the album X. Though the song isn’t actively being promoted in the U.S. while “Don’t” continues to build at radio, “Loud” is #1 in Australia and New Zealand and top five in the United Kingdom. I’m sure it will smash here during the spring.
  • Finally, at #40, is the latest from the those Golden Gate guys, the band Train. Their second single from Bulletproof Picasso is “Cadillac, Cadillac”. The luxury car previously rode into the top 40 on the Hot 100 for Michael Martin Murphey and Natalie Cole, and perhaps the band’s new one will drive the same route.
