Chart Notes:

  • Singles by Taylor Swift (“Style”, 22-16), Maroon 5 (“Sugar”, 28-22) and Ellie Goulding (“Love Me Like You Do”, 31-25) all tie for the Biggest Mover on the countdown. For Goulding, it’s her second week taking the title after moving up nine notches last week. Look for even more action on the top 40 beginning in February, especially with the number of entries being added below my chart in the last few weeks.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is from the English trio Years & Years, led by 24-year-old actor/singer Olly Alexander of Yorkshire. It’s titled “King” and enters at #39. The recent BBC Sound of 2015 winners have been on two top 40 hits so far in their native U.K. and it looks like this will be their third (and probably biggest) once it’s released in early March.
  • One notch below them is the third single from Train‘s latest album, the title track from Bulletproof Picasso. The song goes to Hot AC radio this week and should enter the survey quickly, but “Picasso” is also coming off the group’s lowest charting single at the format since 2006. We’ll see if they rev up retail sales (and radio) soon.
