Chart Notes:

  • Call it a curse, or perhaps just a coincidence, but trio Take That‘s #4 streak on my top 40 is now a thing of the past as “These Days” advances 4-2 this week. As a quartet, they landed at #4 in early 2009 with “Greatest Day”, and then, two of their members each had a solo track hit that peak: Robbie Williams with “Candy” in 2012 and Gary Barlow with “Face To Face” (a duet with Elton John) in 2014. Will they go the distance to #1? Stay tuned.
  • In a week with mostly smaller gains, French DJ/producer The Avener takes the title of Biggest Mover with “Fade Out Lines”, climbing 39-33 in its second week. The deep house single has already gone top five in countries such as Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany and Switzerland. With a radio date set for next year, it’s sure to break out here in a similar manner.
  • The week’s Highest Debut is in at #39, a duet between Olly Murs and Demi Lovato. “Up” is the second release from Murs’s Never Been Better album, which recently debuted at #1 in the United Kingdom, though it’s fallen sharply in the last few weeks. The single itself recently climbed into the top ten on digital services there thanks to a video premiere.
  • Newcomer Rae Morris is this week’s other debut with “Under The Shadows”, entering at #40. Morris was selected as one of fifteen finalists for BBC’s Sound Of 2015 program, with five winners finalized in the first week of January. Good luck Rae! “Shadows” and album Unguarded are both due for release that month.
