Chart Notes:

  • After debuting last time at #38, the new single from One Direction, “Night Changes”, takes a massive leap to #28. It is the second radio release from the band’s FOUR album, which looks to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 survey. Last week, “Night” premiered via a partial hourly deal with iHeartMedia (formerly Clear Channel) for the CHR format and remains below the top 40.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is the first chart single for the 26-year-old rapper born Steven Markowitz, better known as Hoodie Allen. He teams up with Ed Sheeran on “All About It”, rolling in at #38. Allen’s recent album, People Keep Talking, debuted on the Billboard 200 at #8. Sheeran now totals three singles in the top 40 at once with this feature.
  • A notch below them is 16-year-old Shawn Mendes, new at #39 with “Something Big”. Discovered on Vine, his single “Life Of The Party” climbed to #24 on the Hot 100. It will be a while before he catches up to another Mendes, Sergio Mendes, best known for a pair of #4 hits: “The Look Of Love” (1968) and “Never Gonna Let You Go” (1983).
  • There are a total of seven unbulleted songs in the 31-40 section of my chart, so expect some big debut action through December. A Great Big World‘s first Christmas single, along with new ones from chart mainstay Andy Grammer and newcomer Christian Burghardt are likely to enter next week.
