Chart Notes:

  • In its 14th week on the top 40, “Different Colors” by Walk The Moon successfully brightens up the top spot, climbing 3-1. It’s the second chart-topper in a row from their Talking Is Hard album. Late last year, “Shut Up And Dance” shimmied to #1 in its 12th week and spent three weeks at the summit. Of course, the song has also become a huge crossover hit over the past few months. Will “Different” provide different results for the band this time around? We’ll just have to wait and see.
  • No surprise here: this week’s Highest Debut is the latest from One Direction and their first release as a quartet. “Drag Me Down” lands at #36 after a huge two days at both radio and retail (at one point, outselling its nearest competitor by a five to one ratio. “Drag” leads their forthcoming fifth studio album, which should be released during the fall. We’ll see if it’ll land a fifth #1 album in a row for the guys on the Billboard 200 listing.
  • Singer/songwriter Martin Luke Brown is heading out of the top 40 with “Take Out Of Me”, a former #8 hit, though he is looking for a top ten once again with “Scars On Scars”, debuting at #38 this week. His biggest single so far, “Nostalgia”, rose to #7 earlier this year and spent half a year on the chart. Brown is currently in the middle of some summer festival dates.
  • Our final debut this week is from the California duo of Daniel Chang and Michael Garner. They are Hunter Hunted, and a nice song from their Ready For You album is new at #40, “Lucky Day”. The track (and the two men) are currently appearing in a series of online ads for Sperry.
