Chart Notes:

  • Just under five years ago, Adele scored her first #1 on my chart with “Rolling In The Deep”. It spent six weeks at the top. It comes as no surprise that she’s back on top, now with her sixth chart-topper and the second from her album 25. “When We Were Young” advances 2-1 this week, as “Hello” continues in the top five after seven weeks at #1. How long will this release lead the countdown before Taylor Swift or Thomas Rhett take over? Stay tuned!
  • It’s been a big era for Ohio’s Walk The Moon on my personal chart. The first two singles from Talking Is Hard, “Shut Up And Dance” and “Different Colors”, both reached the #1 spot, the former for three weeks and the latter for one. We’ll see if 2016 brings them another chart-topper in “Work This Body”, which enters at #36 as the Highest Debut of the week. It goes for Alternative adds in two weeks.
  • At #39 is this week’s other new entry, the first chart hit for Andra Day, a singer originally from Washington. Currently on the Urban AC chart, where it continues to climb the top 20, “Rise Up” heads to Hot AC radio on Monday. The single and its parent album, Cheers To The Fall, are both nominated at the upcoming Grammy Awards.
