Chart Notes:

  • Coldplay have a split single on their hands to follow their hit “Adventure Of A Lifetime”, a two-week #1 on my survey. The run for “Hymn For The Weekend” is just beginning at a few mainstream formats, but I’m on Team “Up&Up”, which lands a nice debut in the Alternative top 40 this week. It’s also my Highest Debut, coming in at #37. All three songs are featured on the A Head Full Of Dreams album, which hit #2 on the Billboard 200 last year.
  • The Virginia group called Parachute has accumulated five chart hits on my top 40, four as a quintet and one as a trio. The sixth entry for them is their second as a trio, and it’s titled “Without You”. It’s new at #39 this week. Interestingly, there’s a second radio single by a trio called The Rua of the same name, both at Hot AC radio and both being promoted by the very same marketing group. Seeing double yet?
  • Finally, at #40, is the third top 40 hit from Gwen Stefani‘s This Is What The Truth Feels Like album. It’s “Misery”, which is not a hot Soul Asylum or Maroon 5 cover. It goes for adds at Hot AC radio on Monday. Stefani has two singles on this week’s chart, with “Make Me Like You” (#2) heading downward.
