Chart Notes:

  • Two songs are new to the top ten this week: singer/songwriter Mat Kearney climbs a healthy three spots from 11-8 with “Heartbeat”, the leadoff single from his new album, titled Just Kids. Kearney’s highest ranking release to date is “Nothing Left To Lose”, which spent two weeks at #2 in 2007. Taking the same jump of three positions, up from #13 to #10, is One Direction‘s “Night Changes”. It’s the second top ten hit from FOUR and follow-up to “Steal My Girl” (#7).
  • This week’s Highest Debut is the third top 40 hit from Taylor Swift‘s 1989 album, “Style”, at #36. Though it hasn’t officially been announced as the set’s newest single, the song is just below the top 50 on CHR radio and its total spins are over double what they were last week. (It should chart there soon.) Meanwhile, Swift also commands the #1 spot as “Blank Space” holds there for a second week, while “Shake It Off” falls to #26.
  • Following “Maps” and “Animals”, Maroon 5 is new to the top 40 at #39 with “Sugar”, the third single to be released from V. Several sugary titles have gone to #1 on the Hot 100, including 1963’s “Sugar Shack” by Jimmy Gilmer & The Fireballs, 1969’s “Sugar, Sugar” by The Archies and 1971’s “Brown Sugar” by The Rolling Stones. Could the California sextet go all the way as well? We’ll see.
  • The week’s final entry at #40 is the second charting song for the quartet called Smallpools. “Karaoke” comes from the band’s debut album, LOVETAP!, due on February 3. The group last climbed onto the chart in late 2013 and early 2014 with “Over & Over”, which was taken from a self-titled EP. It peaked at #17 for two weeks.
