Chart Notes:

  • Locked in at #1 for a fifth week is the trio Jukebox The Ghost and “Postcard”, which now gives them the longest-running #1 song during the 2015 chart year (at least thus far.) The last song to spend that much time at the top was by singer Jamie Scott and “Unbreakable”, which lasted six weeks in late 2014. How long will this Ghost haunt my house of hits? Their treat may pull off more tricks, so stay tuned!
  • Duran Duran, Janelle Monáe and Nile Rodgers land this week’s Biggest Mover, “Pressure Off”, up 40-32. It leads off Paper Gods, which is out in the U.S. on September 18, though it’ll be released in Europe a week earlier. Though the group’s biggest hits ranked in the 1980’s, they’ve collected two #1’s on my chart with 2005’s “What Happens Tomorrow” and 2011’s “All You Need Is Now”.
  • Both of the week’s debuts are by new duos or groups to my top 40, and the highest, at #38, is by the American-German duo called Lions Head, consisting of Ignacio Uriarte and Filip Bakija. “Begging” is reacting nicely on sites such as SoundCloud, where the original version and two remixes have been streamed in excess of 470,000 times. That’s a mighty musical roar.
  • The other entry on this week’s chart is the current #1 song on the Alternative chart. “Renegades” by X Ambassadors bows in at #39. The quartet’s album, VHS, is due on Tuesday. Though their run was heavily aided by iHeartMedia’s On The Verge artist integration program at the format, their crossover attempt at Hot AC radio is not.
