Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut is the third top 40 song from American Authors, the group that formed in Boston and is now based in New York City. Their single is “Go Big Or Go Home”, new at #35. You’ll be able to purchase it tomorrow. The four men scored a #1 on my chart in November 2013 with “Best Day Of My Life”, which spent a week at the top. Will they march their way their way back “Home” to the top? That story has yet to be written, so stay tuned.
  • As “Sugar” continues to descend on the chart, Maroon 5 rush out a new single with “This Summer’s Gonna Hurt…”, a new entry at #36 this week. It was recently tacked onto the digital editions of V. Should it hit the top ten later this season, it will be the first “summer” title to go that high since Kid Rock‘s “All Summer Long”, which peaked at #8 in September 2008. It should be another huge radio hit for the guys.
  • Last, but certainly not least, the third charting single from Strange Desire rolls in at #39 for 31-year-old singer/songwriter Jack Antonoff and Bleachers. It’s “Like A River Runs”, which is the follow-up to last year’s “Rollercoaster”, a #3 hit. Look for it to officially debut in the Alternative top 40 as well this week. He hits the road with Charli XCX in late July.
