Chart Notes:

  • Scoring her second #1 from the album 1989, Taylor Swift advances 2-1 with “Blank Space”. “Shake It Off”, falling quickly down the chart at this point, spent two weeks at #1 earlier this year. Both singles also reached the summit of the CHR and Hot AC format surveys, as well as the Hot 100. Will she make it three in a row this era? With songs like “Bad Blood” and “Style” still selling well, it could be quite possible.
  • New to this week’s top ten is “27” from Passenger, up 12-10 in its eleventh week on the chart. His latest song marks the third top ten single in a row from his album Whispers and his sixth overall since his debut in early 2013. Just for the record, singer and songwriter Mike Rosenberg is actually 30, but there are several 27-year-old musicians on the chart, including Matt Simons and Robin Schulz.
  • After moving 39-34 last week, Olly Murs and Demi Lovato take the title of Biggest Mover for a second week in a row. Unfortunately, it’s yet another soft week as they climb up to #28, a gain of six notches. The song remains in the top 5 on the Singles Chart in the United Kingdom. (Look for some bigger weekly gains next month.)
  • The only debut on this week’s top 40 belongs to the German duo Milky Chance. They’re new at #40 with “Flashed Junk Mind”, their followup to “Stolen Dance”. That song spent two weeks at #9 last summer. The two men, Clemens Rehbein and Philipp Dausch, will be touring the U.S. again during the spring.
