The new singles from Silk Sonic and Taylor Swift tie for the Biggest Mover in the countdown this week, both moving up ten spots each. There are two new entries on the chart and the aforementioned Adele has one of them with “Oh My God”, a popular album cut that comes in at #39. It also ranks in the top 50 at the Hot AC radio format from unsolicited airplay. At #40, “See You Later (Ten Years)” marks the first chart entry for newcomer Jenna Raine, whose song became a recent viral hit on the video app TikTok.

Another Idol alum is in at #38: it’s Benson Boone with “Ghost Town”, which continues to grow from a viral TikTok moment. Ed Sheeran is next with “Overpass Graffiti”, which lands at #39. It’s the third chart hit from his recent album =. Finally, Bastille enters at #40 with “No Bad Days”, the second song to chart from their forthcoming album Give Me The Future.

A remake of “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)” enters at #39 for January Jane, as they take on the Hall & Oates chart-topper from late 1981 and early 1982. Finally, Ireland’s Westlife is in at #40 with “Starlight”, which previews their latest album Wild Dreams ahead of its release on November 26.
