Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut, at #35, is by one of the most successful bands to make my chart since it began. They have a total of six #1 songs, including big hits like “Makes Me Wonder”, “Misery” and “This Love”. Of course, I’m talking about Maroon 5, and their latest single is “Don’t Wanna Know”. Though the song has received mixed reaction for its tropical house nature, it had a strong start at both radio and retail, and its Pokémon Go-themed music video is generating some big buzz as well.
  • Teenage Canadian singer Shawn Mendes is making his way down the chart with “Treat You Better”, which reached a peak of #2 recently. However, he debuts this week with the follow-up single, “Mercy”. It’s new at #38. Both tracks are taken from the former #1 album Illuminate, which managed to reach the top five in over a dozen countries. “Mercy” impacts at the CHR format this Tuesday, so stay tuned to see how well it does on the latest adds report.
  • Two weeks ago, my #40 song made its radio debut on Carson Daly’s Daly Download countdown program. At the time, it was unable to be download, streamed or tagged. So, now that it’s had a proper release in the last few days, we can all identify the trio Captain Cuts and vocalist Nateur on their track “Love Like We Used To”. Both acts have either production or writing credits on prior chart hits, but have never charted as artists before.
