Chart Notes:

  • Despite a slightly modest start, “Too Cool To Dance” from Eden XO is really rocketing up the chart now. After tying for the Biggest Mover on last week’s list, she holds the title by herself this week, up another eight notches from #23 to #15. The 25-year-old singer and songwriter from California is one of six solo females appearing in the top 40 and the highest newcomer of them.
  • The highest of this week’s two debuts jumps aboard at #36 for The Script and “No Good In Goodbye”. It is the Irish trio’s second charting single from their recent album No Sound Without Silence, the first being the #1 “Superheroes”, which is still in my top ten. Five of the band’s nine top 40 hits have gone to the top; we’ll see if this makes six.
  • Also entering this week on the chart is the second release from superstar Taylor Swift‘s 1989 album, which looks to sell over 1.3 million copies in its debut frame. That’s huge. “Blank Space” is already charging ahead at several airplay formats and comes in at #38 on my own top 40.
  • It appears that there will be room for two debuts on next week’s countdown — it will be a tossup between American Authors, Christina Perri, Clean Bandit / Jess Glynne, Coldplay and Sheppard for who actually makes it in there (at this point.) Stay tuned!
