Chart Notes:

  • From A Star Is Born, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper lead my personal chart this week with “Shallow”, rising 2-1. It marks the first duet from a movie to reach #1 on my chart since 2017’s “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” from Fifty Shades Darker, a two-week chart-topper for ZAYN and Taylor Swift. For more notable collaborations, one claims the title of my Biggest Mover for the week: “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart” by Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus is up from 40-28. Though it’s an empty week for debuts this time around, look for some good action next Sunday. Additionally, watch out for my Top 100 of 2018 real soon: it’s starting up on December 17!

Chart Notes:

  • Scoring her first #1 single on my chart since 2002’s “Sk8er Boi”, a 16-year (!) gap, Avril Lavigne is up from 2-1 on my current update with “Head Above Water”. The track falls just short of the record established by “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” by Backstreet Boys a few months back, which became that act’s first #1 hit on my chart in nearly 17 years. It’s also a pretty nice week for debuts, led by “1999” by Charli XCX featuring Troye Sivan at #38. Sivan is aiming for his third chart-topper on my survey, having previously led with 2016’s “Youth” and 2018’s “My My My!”, while Charli XCX is looking for her first. Jack & Jack debut just below that collaboration at #39 with “No One Compares To You”. Their new one is their second release to chart here, with “Beg” ranking on my list earlier this year. Finally, new at #40, Mark Ronson unites with Miley Cyrus for the hit “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart”. Currently in the top five on iTunes in the U.S. and internationally, the single comes from Ronson’s forthcoming studio album, due next year.

Chart Notes:

  • For its fourth and potentially final week at the top, “Happier” by Marshmello x Bastille continues to lead the way on on my personal chart. The collaboration becomes Bastille’s longest-running #1 title on my list, surpassing “Good Grief” and its three-week run in 2016. Looking to land his third consecutive #1 hit here, George Ezra has the week’s Highest Debut at #36 with “Hold My Girl”. His most recent chart-topper, “Shotgun”, drops from 17-19 on the current list. A few spots lower, bowing at #40, is the second cut from The Greatest Showman: Reimagined to reach my chart. Joining the new version of “A Million Dreams” by P!nk (up 39-37 in its second week on) is “Rewrite The Stars” by James Arthur and Anne-Marie. It heads to the Hot AC format on Monday and is already charting in several countries.

Chart Notes:

  • Due to the loss of my grandfather this week, a fuller commentary will return for next week. In the meantime, “Happier” remains at #1 for the third week for Marshmello x Bastille, while P!nk debuts at #39 with “A Million Dreams”, the first cut to land on my chart from The Greatest Showman: Reimagined. The song is closing in on the top 50 at Hot AC radio, though it’s only being played on a handful stations at the moment. (It hasn’t been officially serviced to the format as of yet.) Look for that release to hit the top five on the Billboard 200 list next week.

Chart Notes:

  • As Marshmello and Bastille hold at the top spot for a second week with “Happier”, there are three songs entering the chart, led by “Party For One” from Carly Rae Jepsen at #36. She’s led my personal chart with a pair of releases: 2012’s “Good Time” (with Owl City) and 2015’s “I Really Like You”. Her last top 40 entry, 2017’s “Cut To The Feeling”, peaked at #8. A notch below Jepsen, with her fourth title to chart this year, Ariana Grande climbs aboard at #37 with “Thank U, Next”. The song, which was released last Saturday night, holds at #1 on digital services such as Apple Music, iTunes and Spotify. It also enters the top 40 on this week’s Top 40 radio chart. Finally, at #39, the Backstreet Boys return with “Chances”, which follows their #1 single of earlier this year, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”, still riding the countdown at #31. Their latest tune impacts at the Hot AC format on Monday.

Chart Notes:

  • Congrats to Marshmello and Bastille, who claim this week’s new #1 song on my personal chart with “Happier”. It also leads the Alternative radio chart for its first week. The collaboration is Marshmello’s first #1 hit on my top 40 and Bastille’s fourth: the band previously reached the top with 2013’s “Pompeii”, 2014’s “Of The Night” and their most recent, 2016’s “Good Grief”. Up nine spots to #19, Maggie Rogers has the week’s Biggest Mover for the second time with “Light On”. Of the week’s three new entries, Kelly Clarkson‘s “Heat” debuts the highest, coming in at #38. It’s the third top 40 tune from Meaning Of Life, with “Love So Soft” (#2) and “I Don’t Think About You” (#5) both becoming larger hits. Scott Helman is new at #39 with the title song from a three track release called Hang Ups. He has three top ten songs to date; his biggest, “Kinda Complicated”, reached #4 last year. Lastly, at #40 this week, Irish act Picture This earns their second chart record with “One Drink”. It impacts at the Hot AC format this Monday.

Chart Notes:

  • As Dean Lewis remains at #1 for his fourth (and perhaps final) week with “Be Alright”, songs from Michael Bublé and Maggie Rogers, which both entered last week, tie for the Biggest Mover at ten notches each. The former’s “Love You Anymore” is up from 35-25, while the latter’s “Light On” soars from 38-28. Among this week’s debuts, first-timer Ava Max comes in at #39 with a song that’s particularly appropriate for the upcoming Halloween holiday, “Sweet But Psycho”. The track is currently charting in parts of Europe, including Norway and Sweden, and has been reactive on Spotify, topping several of the service’s Viral charts. Landing one notch lower, at #40, Ellie Goulding makes her return to my chart with “Close To Me”, which debuted on Wednesday. The track’s a collaboration with Diplo that features Swae Lee of the duo Rae Sremmurd. It’s Goulding’s eighth top 40 entry since 2011.
