A pair of new songs jump into the pop pool this week, with Noah Kahan splashing at #38 with “Part Of Me”. The title recently impacted at the Triple A format and is close to the top 50. Meanwhile, Ben Rector rides a wave into the #39 spot with the Steve Winwood-assisted “Range Rover”. The legendary featured artist, who plays the organ on this song, scored his first top 40 entry on my chart. He previously bubbled under the list with two singles from his 2008 album Nine Lives.

The tune heads for adds at Country radio in three weeks, while it continues its ascent towards the top 20 at Hot AC radio. From the album Sour, this week’s Biggest Mover is “Good 4 U”, soaring from 38-28 for Olivia Rodrigo. Four tracks are new to the top 40 this time around, with several former #1 acts among them. Coming in at #33, a new single from Bleachers called “Stop Making This Hurt” claims the Highest Debut of the bunch. Jack Antonoff has five chart-toppers to his credit: three as a member of fun. and two leading Bleachers. Duran Duran is visible at #36 with “Invisible”, the lead single from their upcoming 15th studio album. It’s been six years since the group last appeared at the summit with the Janelle Monáe and Nile Rodgers-assisted “Pressure Off”, which spent five weeks there.
