Chart Notes:

  • After years of making my personal chart and not reaching the top spot, the Las Vegas band Imagine Dragons finally captures my #1 song of the week with “Bad Liar”. It’s the second radio single from the album Origins. Grammy winner Kacey Musgraves rises from 36-26 with the Biggest Mover on this week’s list, “Rainbow”. It’s a tune from Golden Hour, winner for Album Of The Year. The two debuts in the countdown both impact at the Hot AC format by the end of the month: Lewis Capaldi‘s “Someone You Loved”, already a hit across Europe, starts at #37, while Dermot Kennedy‘s “Power Over Me”, currently in the top ten at Triple A radio here in the States, bows at #39. It’s the first entry for both male singers.

Chart Notes:

  • It’s another week at the top for Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus with “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart”, spending their second frame at the top. In a solid week for notable movers, with seven titles rising either five or six spots, the week’s survey also has a healthy pack of three debuts in the top 40. Leading the way, “Rainbow” from Kacey Musgraves enters at #36. It’s the second chart song off her album Golden Hour, which produced a #2 hit last year in “High Horse”. Passenger scores his tenth top 40 single on my chart with “Survivors”, placing at #38. It’s the follow-up song to “Hell Or High Water”, which got as high as #6 last year. Finally, at #40, Dido returns with her first top 40 hit since January 2004. “Give You Up” is from her forthcoming album Still On My Mind, coming 15 years after “White Flag”, which reached #2 on my chart, fell out of the survey.

Chart Notes:

  • Congrats to Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus, who each earn their first #1 song on my chart with “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart”, up 2-1. The hit is currently in the top 20 on the Top 40 chart, as it approaches the region on the Hot AC list. Dua Lipa‘s “Swan Song” leaps from 34-26, which is enough for the soundtrack cut to claim the title of Biggest Mover. Four new songs enter the top 40 this week, led by Panic! At The Disco‘s “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” at #33. It’s the follow-up to “High Hopes”, a huge radio track that got as high as #2 on here. With their three-week run at the top with “Chances” coming to a close, the Backstreet Boys are in at #36 with the third radio single from their #1 album DNA, “No Place”. You’ll also find it in the top 40 on the Hot AC survey. Further entries this week all come from chart newcomers: Lizzo comes in at #38 with “Juice” and the collaboration from Smith & Thell and Swedish Jam Factory titled “Forgive Me Friend” starts at #39. The latter song is already in the top ten in Sweden, while the former saw a solid sales and streaming spike following a recent performance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Chart Notes:

  • As the Backstreet Boys remain at #1 for the third week with “Chances”, three delightful debuts spring onto the chart. Off the soundtrack to the movie Alita: Battle Angel, Dua Lipa scores the week’s Highest Debut with “Swan Song”, breaking in at #34. Lipa has two #1 hits to date on my personal chart and a total of seven weeks at the summit. Starting at #37 with her first hit entry since 2015, FLETCHER is back on the list with “Undrunk”. Her prior chart single, “War Paint”, reached #12 in October of that year. “Undrunk” is her first release for a major label. Lastly, at #38, “Woke Up Late” enters the chart in a newly-released version by the original group, Drax Project, and actor/singer Hailee Steinfeld. Just over a year ago, the tune was a decent-sized hit in the quartet’s native New Zealand.

Chart Notes:

  • As the Backstreet Boys hold at the top for a second week with “Chances” and Walk The Moon claim the Biggest Mover with “Timebomb”, up 35-24, there are three new entries in the countdown. Following his former chart-topper “Be Alright”, Dean Lewis is new at #33 with “7 Minutes”. Two spots lower, at #35, The Cranberries return with “All Over Now”. The track is featured on the group’s upcoming set In The End, their first since the passing of leader Dolores O’Riordan. Back in January 2012, the act last appeared on my personal chart with “Tomorrow”, which reached #30. Finally, at #36, Maren Morris is in with “Girl”, marking her first appearance since her collaboration on Niall Horan‘s “Seeing Blind”, which got a week at #1 during the last week of September. It’ll likely have a splashy debut at the Country radio format this week.

Chart Notes:

  • After spending three weeks at #1 last year with their single “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”, the Backstreet Boys return to the top with “Chances”, leaping from 4-1. This is the first time the band has achieved back-to-back chart-toppers on my list since 2001. Both “Don’t” and “Chances” can be found on the group’s forthcoming album DNA, out in just under two weeks. The Biggest Mover this week rises up twelve spots from 37-25, and that belongs to “Bad Liar” by Imagine Dragons. Look for the track to earn some solid airplay by the end of January, when it impacts at the Triple A and Alternative formats. This week’s Highest Debut belongs to an act that’s searching for their fifth #1 title on my chart, Walk The Moon. “Timebomb” is new at #35. One notch lower, with their first chart entry since the fall of 2002, Westlife climbs aboard at #36 with their comeback hit “Hello My Love”. It’s already topped the iTunes lists in the United Kingdom and Ireland. One last debut, new at #40, pairs Calvin Harris and Rag’N’Bone Man for their first collaboration together. “Giant” will be looking for some giant Top 40 radio success when it impacts on January 22.

Chart Notes:

  • Congrats to newcomer Alec Benjamin, whose first top 40 hit becomes my first #1 song of 2019. “Let Me Down Slowly” is now at the top in its 15th week on the chart, which is a fairly slow climb, but by no means a record. The song is included on his mixtape called Narrated For You, which came out late last year. Seeb x Bastille take “Grip” up from 33-24, earning it the title of Biggest Mover on my newest update. A pair of new songs by Imagine Dragons (“Bad Liar”) and Jon Bellion (“Stupid Deep”) land at #37 and #38, respectively. A lyric video for the former debuted earlier this week, which is charting in countries like Australia, Norway and Switzerland, which the latter is being serviced to radio here in the U.S. very soon.
