Chart Notes:

  • Jamie Scott calls his latest single “Unbreakable”, and his run at the top likely won’t be broken for some time. This is the song’s second week at #1 and his sixth frame overall in 2014. Scott’s album, My Hurricane, has been pushed back again by Virgin/Capitol to January 20 of next year after previous dates of September 9, October 7 and November 10 of this year. It’s unfortunate, of course, but I still look forward to hearing the full thing.
  • Two songs tie for the week’s Biggest Mover, both up seven spots from the last chart. Charging ahead is “Wrapped Up” by Olly Murs and Travie McCoy, climbing 33-26, and newcomer Eden XO steps up with a 30-23 jump with “Too Cool To Dance”. The former song will be on Murs’s forthcoming album, Never Been Better, while the latter single was just serviced to pop radio to some very good initial numbers.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is from Ingrid Michaelson with the followup to “Girls Chase Boys”. Entering at #39, her latest is “Afterlife”, taken from her recent album Lights Out. A deluxe edition of that is released on November 10 and tacks on an additional second disc with six tracks, including some previously unreleased demos and much more.
  • You may have heard him on BBC Radio 1 earlier this month when he was playlisted as their newest Introducing artist. He’s 21-year-old English performer Martin Luke Brown, from Leicester, who debuts at #40 with “Nostalgia”. It is a great tune and I’m sure that we’ll hear even more fantastic originals from him in the new year.
