Chart Notes:

  • After four weeks at #1, the big hit from Ellie Goulding, “Love Me Like You Do”, is knocked out of the top spot by a band of first-timers to the chart. English trio Years & Years advances 2-1 with their single “King”, a recent #1 hit in the United Kingdom. Royalty rightfully reigns atop the top 40 and becomes the highest “king” title to make my list, displacing 2010’s “King Of Anything” by Sara Bareilles, which peaked at #2.
  • Two newcomers are in with singles this week, the highest of which debuts at #39. The trio Jukebox The Ghost recently partnered with Cherrytree and Interscope Records, and their current single “Postcard” goes to radio next month. Though this marks their first time in my top 40, the band’s been around for over a decade. Look for it on the AAA airwaves soon.
  • A notch below them is Jason French, whose viral hit “You Just Want My Money” enters the chart at #40. It also goes to radio next month, but at the highly competitive CHR format. French is originally from the San Diego area and is currently in the process of recording a debut album (and perhaps making some nice “Money” along the way.)
