Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut is a new single from Canadian sisters Tegan and Sara Quin. “Boyfriend” is already soaring up the radio listings in their home country, and it comes in at #37 on my own chart. In 2007, the two girls scored their biggest hit on my chart with “Back In Your Head”, which went to #12. Will this track from Love You To Death stay alive and get its time in the top ten? Stay tuned!
  • Following “On My Mind” (#2) and “Something In The Way You Move” (#10) is Ellie Goulding‘s newest single, “Army”, a debut at #39 this week. “Army” previously made the top 40 in Scotland and the United Kingdom, and now, it’s looking at a nice run on the pop airwaves here in the States. Goulding has a number of U.S. tour dates in May and June.
  • Finally, the New Zealand act called Broods debuts this week with “Free”. It’s the first single from their forthcoming album Conscious. Entering at #40, this isn’t the first time “Free” has appeared as a title on my chart. In 2001, it hit the top ten for Mya, and in 2012, it was a minor top 40 entry for Haley Reinhart.
  • The late Prince bubbled under my chart several times, but never quite made it in. However, covers of his material by acts like Jordan Knight (1999) and Alicia Keys (2002) did break my top 40. Still, we salute this great musician and all of his superb albums and songs over the many decades of his career.
