Chart Notes:

  • Niall Horan remains at #1 for the fifth week on my personal chart with “Nice To Meet Ya”, even as the performer releases a new one-off track called “Put A Little Love On Me”, which enters the Next In Line section after debuting on Friday. The latest radio singles from Lewis Capaldi and Maggie Rogers tie for this week’s Biggest Mover, both up seven spots from last week. Four huge debuts blast onto the chart, with “Adore You” by Harry Styles leading the way at #32. It’s the third song to chart from his Fine Line album, out next week. In with her first entry since 2012, Alanis Morissette starts at #36 with “Reasons I Drink”, the first single off her forthcoming May set Such Pretty Forks In The Road. At #39, with possibly the most intriguing collaboration on the list, Steve Aoki, Sting and SHAED debut with “2 In A Million”. Aoki’s recent top ten hit with the Backstreet Boys, “Let It Be Me”, is still in the top 20 here. Finally, at #40, newcomer Taylor Janzen enters on my personal chart with “What I Do…”, which already has some minor airplay at the Alternative and Triple A formats.

Chart Notes:

  • Niall Horan is steady at #1 for the third week on my personal chart with “Nice To Meet Ya”, while Neon Trees light up the survey with a 39-30 move for “Used To Like”, this week’s Biggest Mover. There’s also some big debut action on the countdown, led by Horan’s former bandmate Harry Styles with “Watermelon Sugar” at #34. It’s the second song to chart from his forthcoming album Fine Line: “Lights Up” rises to #8. A new collaboration by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera, who last charted together with 2013’s “Say Something”, comes in at #36. We’ll see if “Fall On Me”, which will be performed at tomorrow’s American Music Awards, can reach or exceed the #2 peak of their prior hit. In at #37, Billie Eilish‘s “Everything I Wanted” charts concurrently with her brother’s “Shelter”, as Finneas‘s track rises from 25-24. Lastly, the #40 song belongs to Maggie Rogers, who debuts with “Love You For A Long Time”. Rogers’s highest-charting song to date, “Light On”, spent a couple of weeks at #3 in December and January.

Chart Notes:

  • Big congrats are in order for Niall Horan, who scores his sixth solo #1 song on my chart with “Nice To Meet Ya”, climbing from 3-1. Horan’s latest chart-topper extends his run as the most successful individual member of One Direction on my list. He’s also sure to do really well on my end-of-the-decade chart with at least one of his songs, which will be revealed after the holidays. Dua Lipa‘s “Don’t Start Now” soars from 33-19 in its second week in the top 40, giving it the Biggest Mover title on this week’s chart. The only new entry of note lands at #39, as “Used To Love” marks the first collaboration to chart for Martin Garrix and Dean Lewis. The song impacts at Hot AC radio in three weeks.

Chart Notes:

  • Tones And I manages a sixth week at #1 for “Dance Monkey”, but the growing competition from Niall Horan and Taylor Swift may keep her global smash out of the top spot next time around. Coldplay earns this week’s Biggest Mover title with a 33-22 jump for “Orphans”. New at #33, Dua Lipa‘s “Don’t Start Now” leads a pack of three debuts, as it prepares to impact at Top 40 radio on Tuesday. A collaboration from JP Saxe and Julia Michaels comes in at #38, titled “If The World Was Ending”, with Saxe scoring his first appearance on my list. Keane‘s latest single at Triple A radio (which impacts this month) also bounces in at #40. “Stupid Things” gives the band three songs in the top 40 off their most recent release Cause And Effect.

Chart Notes:

  • Australia’s Tones And I scores a fifth week at #1 with “Dance Monkey”, as the top four titles on the countdown remain unchanged. With the addition of three songs entering the top ten, all by or featuring acts that have reached the top of my list, that will soon change. It’s also been a busy week for new entries, with four of them blasting into the top 40. Kesha and Big Freedia lead things off at #31 with “Raising Hell”, the first single from Kesha’s forthcoming album High Road, due January 10. Coldplay‘s “Orphans” is in at #33, one of two new cuts released on Thursday from their highly-anticipated double album Everyday Life, due November 22. Louis Tomlinson earns his fifth solo top 40 single with “We Made It”, bowing at #38. It and “Kill My Mind” (at #36) will appear on his debut solo album Walls, due January 31. Finally, at #39, Picture This returns to the chart with “One Night”, a song that’s already hit the top five in their native Ireland. It’s the band’s third single to make my list.
