Chart Notes:

  • Boy band One Direction takes a five notch leap from 13-8 with “Drag Me Down”, the first single from their next studio set and last one before a hiatus next year. “Drag” is the group’s tenth top ten single on my chart, and of those ten, “Story Of My Life” remains their only #1. New to the top 20 is the week’s Biggest Mover, “Great Big Storm” by Nate Ruess. It rises from 23-16 in its sixth week on the chart. The single is currently rising on the Hot AC survey after making the top 40 this month.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is the fifth top 40 song from Taylor Swift‘s 1989 album, which has sold in excess of five million units in the U.S. alone. “Wildest Dreams” bows in at #36, while former single “Bad Blood” looks to be out of the countdown next week. As expected, “Wildest” is exploding at both CHR and Hot AC radio, and once a music video debuts tonight, it will soar up to the top tier of the sales chart. The clip features actor Scott Eastwood.
  • In 2014, the Australian band Boy & Bear launched a pair of singles on my chart from their album Harlequin Dream, which was certified Gold down under. “Southern Sun” was the bigger of the two, peaking at #8 in February, while followup “Three Headed Woman” climbed to #12 in October. Their new single, “Walk The Wire”, enters at #39 this week. Their forthcoming album, Limit Of Love, is due in October.
