Chart Notes:

  • In what may be the least-surprising announcement of the year, for its second time, Adele has one more #1 single to add to her files on my personal chart. Leaping from #4 to #1, “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” is the third consecutive #1 off her 25 album, which matches the same number of chart-toppers she had from 21. No artist or band has done that before in the time I’ve been compiling my survey. Also, “Send” represents her seventh #1 overall, which ties her with Coldplay for a heated battle in the category of Most #1 Songs. (The band is currently climbing with “Up&Up”.) What else can I say? She is still the queen.
  • This week’s Highest Debut belongs to FRANKIE, who comes in at #38 with “New Obsession”. It’s featured on an EP titled Dreamstate. Only three chart hits with “obsession” in their titles have gone top 40 on CHR radio since that listing began in 1973, and should this title make it four, it’ll be the first since another Frankie — Frankie J, that is. The Mexican singer had his biggest hit with “Obsession (No Es Amor)”, which went to #3 in the spring of 2005. (Mariah Carey did hit #8 with her “Obsessed” in 2009, but with its use as a verb rather than a noun, I’ve counted it separately.)
  • Swedish singer LÉON makes her chart debut this week at #39. She may be “Tired Of Talking”, but I think she knows that a lot of people aren’t “tired” of hearing her music. In fact, more of them will be exposed to it when her first radio single goes for Hot AC adds in two weeks. You can find “Tired” on her Treasure EP, which has done big streaming numbers.
  • Lastly, at #40, is the duo A Great Big World and “Won’t Stop Running”. It follows “Oasis”, which went to #3 earlier this year. This is the first “running” title to sprint onto the survey in three years. Do you remember “We Come Running” by the band Youngblood Hawke? The top ten Alternative hit peaked at #34 on my chart in early 2013.
