Chart Notes:

  • Going into this GRAMMY weekend, two artists in this week’s top ten are nominated for three categories each. One, Ed Sheeran, is up for Album Of The Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for X, while his song “I See Fire” is up for Best Song Written For Visual Media. Of course, he’s at #1 for the fourth week with “Thinking Out Loud”. The other act is Taylor Swift, up for Record and Song Of The Year, as well as Best Pop Solo Performance with “Shake It Off”. “Style” lands at #6 this week, while “Blank Space” falls to #9.
  • Two songs tie for this week’s Biggest Mover and both are by bands that are scoring their first chart single (though each has released other songs in the past.) “King” from the London trio Years & Years jumps 32-22 in its third week, while “My Type” by Los Angeles’s Saint Motel launches 38-28 in its second week, a gain of ten notches for both tracks. It’s  likely that the two songs will break the top ten next month.
  • Do you remember the Make A Band Famous competition that aired on VH1 last summer? The winning group from that was a quintet called Fancy Reagan, and now the New York band bows at #37 with this week’s Highest Debut, “Knock Me Out”. It’s their first single to reach my chart and you’ll likely be seeing it on a few more surveys when it hits radio in the next few weeks.
  • The only other entry this week is the third top 40 hit from Charli XCX‘s Sucker album. It’s titled “Doing It”, debuting at #40. It follows “Break The Rules”, which peaked at #29 a few months back. A new remix of the track features singer Rita Ora.
