Chart Notes:

  • Congrats to Kacey Musgraves and her song “Rainbow” on its fifth week at #1 on my survey, making it the longest-running chart-topper of the year thus far. The single remains in the top 40 on both the AC and Country radio charts. Dean Lewis has this week’s Highest Debut, landing at #38 with “Stay Awake”. It’s his third title to reach my top 40 and the follow-up to “7 Minutes”, which stays at #8 again on my latest list. Coming in a notch lower at #39, it’s the fourth top 40 hit for The Strumbellas. “I’ll Wait” follows “Salvation”, which recently got as high as #4. Both of these debut songs should do well on here through the summer months.

Chart Notes:

  • Kacey Musgraves holds steady at #1 for the fourth week with “Rainbow”, which ties it with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper‘s “Shallow” as the longest-running #1 song of the chart year to date. Another track off the A Star Is Born soundtrack, Lady Gaga’s solo cut “Always Remember Us This Way”, ties for the Biggest Mover of the week with a move from 34-28. The other two singles earning the title, Lauv and Troye Sivan‘s “I’m So Tired…” and Kelly Clarkson‘s “Broken & Beautiful”, move from 24-18 and 36-30, respectively. Landing his fourth chart single at #37, BANNERS has the Highest Debut with “Got It In You”. In the fall of 2016, he last charted here with “Into The Storm”, which got to #18. Just a notch lower, at #38, The Cranberries are in with “Wake Me When It’s Over”, the second song to make the top 40 from In The End. The radio single from it, “All Over Now”, climbs to a new peak of #5 this week.

Chart Notes:

  • Kacey Musgraves holds steady at #1 for the third week with “Rainbow”, but she’s facing some competition from Westlife‘s huge comeback: in addition to debuting at #38 with “Better Man”, they’re up from 4-2 with “Hello My Love”, their highest-charting entry on my list to date. On the move from 36-29, Noah Kahan takes the Biggest Mover title with “Mess”, his fourth top 40 single since 2017. Finally, this week’s Highest Debut, starting at #36, is a new soundtrack tune from the kelegendary artist herself, Kelly Clarkson. “Broken & Beautiful” is featured on the set from the animated movie UglyDolls, opening in May. Clarkson also voices one of the lead characters named Moxy. It’s the performer’s first soundtrack hit on my personal chart since 2004, when “Breakaway” (from The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement) peaked at #3.

Chart Notes:

  • Singer Kacey Musgraves holds onto the top spot for a second week with “Rainbow”, her first #1 on my personal chart. However, much of the action is smaller this time around, with the Biggest Mover climbing just five notches from last week: “Don’t Give Up On Me”, a new soundtrack cut from Five Feet Apart by Andy Grammer, takes the title with a move from 38-33. One debut lands in the top 40, another soundtrack song off the wildly popular set from A Star Is Born. Lady Gaga lands at #39 with “Always Remember Us This Way”. While “Shallow”, her duet with co-star Bradley Cooper, has a second life at several radio formats, this reactive cut has also earned unsolicited airplay in several big markets.

Chart Notes:

  • After narrowly missing the top spot last year with “High Horse”, which had a four-week run at #2, Kacey Musgraves easily secures a #1 song this time around with a short six-week sprint to the summit for “Rainbow”. Both this cut and “High” are from her Grammy-winning set Golden Hour, with the former continuing to see increased airplay at a handful of radio formats following her performance on the recent award show. A total of four debuts land on this week’s chart update, led by Louis Tomlinson‘s “Two Of Us” at #37. “Two” marks Tomlinson’s third solo song outside of One Direction to make my survey. The soundtrack cut “Don’t Give Up On Me”, featured in Five Feet Apart, starts at #38 for Andy Grammer. Further entries from Noah Kahan (“Mess”) at #39 and George Ezra (“Pretty Shining People”) at #40 round out the list; “Mess” recently impacted at the Triple A radio format, while “Pretty” spiked in the U.K. last week after its music video debuted.

Chart Notes:

  • Walk The Moon‘s “Timebomb” holds at #1 for a second week on my personal chart, marking the group’s 13th week overall at the summit over their five #1 singles since 2014. However, that entry’s run may be curtailed by Kacey Musgraves‘s “Rainbow”, which leaps from 7-2 in only its fifth week in the top 40. For now, the cut from Golden Hour ties for Musgraves’s highest-charting tune to date on my survey, with “High Horse” galloping into the runner-up position last year. Other notable movers in the top 40 include the latest Hot AC releases from John Mayer, P!nk and Rob Thomas, all of which are well on their way towards the top ten. Carly Rae Jepsen leads a pack of three new entries at #35 with one of the two tracks she released last week, “Now That I Found You”, which was recently featured in a trailer for the third season of Netflix’s Queer Eye. Impacting at the Top 40 format on Tuesday, “I’m So Tired…” by Lauv and Troye Sivan gets awakened with a #37 debut. Finally, the new single from Maggie Rogers heats up the top 40: at #38, her second chart entry is “Burning”. Her “Light On”, a former #3 hit, is still on the list this week.
