Chart Notes:

  • For the sixth week in a row, Elton John and Dua Lipa keep it chill at the top spot on my personal chart with “Cold Heart”. John’s latest album The Lockdown Sessions is out on Friday. However, this week’s update is all about the new entries and there’s a huge one at #18: “Easy On Me”, the comeback hit for Adele. So, how quickly will it fly to the top? Stay tuned! Meanwhile, her new album 30 will be released on November 19 and it’s sure to be an immediate success. There are three other debuts on the chart by artists who are not named Adele: at #38, Noah Kahan and Joy Oladokun are off to a good start with “Someone Like You”, the second top 40 entry from Kahan’s recent album I Was / I Am. A remake of “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)” enters at #39 for January Jane, as they take on the Hall & Oates chart-topper from late 1981 and early 1982. Finally, Ireland’s Westlife is in at #40 with “Starlight”, which previews their latest album Wild Dreams ahead of its release on November 26.
