Chart Notes:

  • Big congrats to English singer and songwriter George Ezra on his very first #1 song on my chart, “Paradise”, which rises one spot after three weeks in the runner-up position. It’s the second single from his Staying At Tamara’s album, and it’s found its own pop paradise in countries like Austria, Scotland and the United Kingdom, where it’s cracked the top five, peaking at #1 in the second territory. The lead single from the album, “Don’t Matter Now”, spent two weeks at #2 on my survey last year. Over on the U.S. radio charts, “Paradise” makes the top 50 on the Hot AC chart, while still rising through the top 15 on the Triple A list. Entering at #34 and #39 on the chart, the new single by Ariana Grande (“No Tears Left To Cry”) and a collaboration by Liam Payne and J Balvin (“Familiar”), who all happen to be labelmates, look to climb speedily during their respective runs this spring and summer. Grande’s release has a simultaneous impact at the Hot AC and Top 40 formats this week, though the Payne and Balvin single has to wait another week before it goes for adds at the latter format.

Chart Notes:

  • Former One Direction member ZAYN scores this week’s highest debut at #38 with his fifth solo hit, “Let Me”. The single is due on the performer’s forthcoming studio album, which is expected sometime later this year. He has two #1 songs thus far as a soloist: “Pillowtalk”, which topped my chart for three weeks in 2016, and “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever”, with Taylor Swift, which held at the top for two weeks in 2017. A spot below ZAYN, coming in at #39, is the boy band In Real Life with “Tattoo (How ‘Bout You)”. It’s the quintet’s first appearance on my chart, though they bubbled under with a song called “Eyes Closed” last August. Finally, at #40, is a duet from labelmates Andreas Moss and Melanie Pfirrman, “Lonely”. It’s the second top 40 song for Moss, who reached #21 in November with “Stuck In My Feelings”, and the first for Pfirrman.

Chart Notes:

  • Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa are responsible for this week’s Highest Debut with “One Kiss”, smooching its way into the #34 spot. Lipa’s “IDGAF” holds onto the #9 position for the third consecutive week, while also showing solid growth at the Hot AC and Top 40 radio formats. With his first top 40 single on my chart since “Superbad”, which went to #13 during the summer of 2014, Jesse McCartney comes in at #38 with “Better With You”. Look out for more new music from the performer later this year. Lastly, at #40, Matt Simons returns with his first hit in three years, “We Can Do Better”. In early 2015, his song “Catch And Release” peaked at #23, though it reached the top five on the Triple A radio chart a little over a year later.

Chart Notes:

  • Congrats to One Direction‘s Niall Horan, who now goes 4-for-4 with chart-topping titles from his solo album Flicker. “On The Loose” rises 2-1 this week, making Horan’s set the first to accumulate four consecutive #1 songs on my top 40 since 25 by Adele. The other three, chronologically, are 2016’s “This Town” and 2017’s “Slow Hands” and “Too Much To Ask”. This chart achievement also makes Flicker the first release to land #1 songs in three different calendar years since 25, with the last of the four, “Water Under The Bridge”, spending its last week at the top on the chart dated the first day of January in 2017. (Her run began in November 2015 with lead single “Hello”.) There are three debuts this week, led by the fourth top 40 song for James TW, “Say Love”, at #36. His biggest entry here to date, “When You Love Someone”, spent seven weeks at the top in the fall of 2016. The Driver Era, two of the Lynch siblings from R5, are new at #39 with “Preacher Man”, marking their first chart hit. Lastly, at #40, is a collaboration from Hall & Oates and Train called “Philly Forget Me Not”, a preview of their forthcoming summer tour together. It’s the legendary duo’s first time on my chart since 2005, when their cover of “Ooh Child” went to #37 that June. Train’s last top 40 single here, “Drink Up”, spent three weeks at #9 last June.
