Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut at #37 is the sole entry by an act that isn’t new to the countdown. 22-year-old singer and writer Tori Kelly is back with a new single called “Hollow”, her third song to make it onto my survey. It’s set to be included on a reissue of Kelly’s album of earlier this year, Unbreakable Smile, which debuted and peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200 list and went top ten in several other countries. By the way, her previous two hits were “Nobody Love” (#6 for two weeks) and “Should’ve Been Us” (#13).
  • If you listened to Pat Monahan’s Train Tracks show this weekend, then you heard the #38 entry this week receive a spin. It also finds itself at 875,000 streams and climbing on Spotify. (Watch out for the million mark real soon.) The song is called “Something New” and the act is Secret Weapons, one of three duos to debut and one of five overall in the top 40. You’ll be able to see the two guys opening for A Great Big World and Nate Ruess this week as they play Montreal, New York City and more.
  • I first wrote about the #39 debut on this week’s chart back in January. Now, I imagine you’re saying, “Adam, seriously, it’s November. Why wait so long?” I’m glad you asked. When I heard The Score‘s “Oh My Love” was headed to Hot AC radio after an adds date at Alternative was mysteriously pulled, not that it would’ve done anything there, I knew that I had to get back on it and give it an official run on my chart. So, here we are. Hope you feel the “Love” too.
  • Our final debut of the week at #40 is from new duo Lipstick Gypsy and their song “The Cure”. They are Chris Liggio and John Thomas, and they recently appeared on the Today Show as a part of a new act feature with syndicated morning radio host Elvis Duran. Their track is currently being played on both CHR and Hot AC stations, while another cut, “Infatuation”, is just under the Urban chart.
