Chart Notes:

  • Two new songs break into the top ten on this week’s chart: “Nothing Without Love” bolts from 12-8 for Nate Ruess, the first release from his upcoming solo album. It’s currently in the top 40 at both Alternative and Hot AC radio and goes for adds at the CHR format on Tuesday. Rising 13-10 and earning their third top ten song from the album No Sound Without Silence, Irish trio The Script is as hot as ever with “Man On A Wire”. Also on the way up is this week’s Biggest Mover by Martin Luke Brown, “Take Out Of Me”. After debuting at #39, he climbs nine to #30 with the followup to “Nostalgia”.
  • Speaking of “Nostalgia”, you may remember that the song was featured on BBC Radio 1 last October in their Introducing rotation slot, which gives a particular newcomer seven spins across all day parts during a given week. This past week, the slot was given to English singer and songwriter Matt Woods, originally from Cornwall, and now “In The Dark” comes in at #37 as the Highest Debut on the chart. You might remember that I wrote about “Dark” in January, followed by the cut “Impression” two weeks ago. Look for his debut EP at digital retail on April 20; it’s a winner.
  • This June will mark the 20th anniversary since the theme song from the TV show Friends, “I’ll Be There For You” by Los Angeles duo The Rembrandts, spent an incredible eight weeks at #1 on the pop radio chart. Now, in 2015, we have the second single release from Eden XO, posing the question, “Wanna be Friends? Phoebe Buffay?” I suppose that my chart central doesn’t compare with Central Perk, but “The Weekend” is still a hot track and debuts at #39. It follows “Too Cool To Dance”, a #6 hit from last year.
  • Serviced to Hot AC radio last week, though the band doesn’t seem to be acknowledging it yet, Parachute return with the  first single from a likely forthcoming album. It’s called “Crave” and it enters the countdown this week at #40. It was back in 2011 that they last charted as a quintet with “Kiss Me Slowly”, which climbed to #9. After three albums with Island and Mercury Records, they now find themselves (with a few lineup changes) at Vanguard. Look for more information soon.
