Chart Notes:

  • After two weeks at #1, The Script say “Goodbye” to the top spot as Taylor Swift advances 3-1 with “Style”. Swift has now reached the top with the first three singles from her album 1989 and gives her a fifth career #1 atop my chart. Even more stylish than that, “Style” is now the biggest song to use that word in its title, topping the #2 peak of Blu Cantrell‘s “Hit ‘Em Up Style (Oops!)” on my top 40 during the summer of 2001. That’s real fashionable, folks. A fourth release off Swift’s album has not been named as of yet.
  • The week’s Highest Debut, roaring in at #30, is “Nothing Without Love”, a solo hit from fun. frontman Nate Ruess. It comes in the middle of a hiatus for the trio, though Ruess’s forthcoming solo effort is sure to satisfy fans of the group. It isn’t the first time Ruess has appeared as a solo on the top 40: back in 2013, he, along with Pink, spent five weeks at the top with “Just Give Me A Reason”. We’ll see if his latest single can repeat that run.
  • Further down the list at #39 is this week’s second debut, “Billion” by Mat Kearney. This is the second song to chart off his recent album, Just Kids. The first, “Heartbeat”, is still in the top five, though that single was recently pulled from the air when “Heartbeat Song” by Kelly Clarkson (which enters my top ten this week) quickly leaped on the Hot AC chart.  The set will likely see a top 20 debut on the album chart.
  • Finally, coming in at #40, is the new single from the six-piece act out of North Carolina who call themselves Delta Rae. It’s great to have them back on the chart with “Scared”, taken from their forthcoming album titled After It All. The band last made the top 40 a year ago with “Chasing Twisters”, which is also included on the tracklisting. Look for the single at radio in two weeks.
