Chart Notes:

  • After three weeks at #1, Taylor Swift‘s “Blank Space” falls back to #3, and replacing it is Ed Sheeran‘s “Thinking Out Loud”, up 2-1. This is the second chart-topper for the 23-year-old English singer/songwriter, who spent a frame at #1 back in April 2012 with “The A Team”. It’s also his first #1 of the era: previous singles “Sing” and “Don’t” could only go as high as #2, the former for two weeks and the latter for one. All three can be found on X.
  • Looking to break into next week’s top ten are three tracks: “All About It” by Hoodie Allen and the aforementioned Ed Sheeran is up 13-11, while another collaboration, Clean Bandit and Jess Glynne‘s “Real Love”, advances up two from 14-12. Also, leaping 18-13 this week is “Honey, I’m Good” from Andy Grammer. Everyone except Allen has at least one top ten to their name, so we’ll see how the battle continues in seven days.
  • The week’s only debut comes from superstar Kelly Clarkson, bowing in at #32 with “Heartbeat Song”. It’s the first single to be taken from her forthcoming album Piece By Piece, due in March. After reaching the top ten on iTunes at the first part of the week, it’s fallen back some, but with strong radio data, it should see a nice debut on the Hot 100.
