Chart Notes:

  • My personal chart is still intoxicated by Elle King and Miranda Lambert with “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)”, which remains at #1 for its fifth (and perhaps final) week. A steady stream of bulleted titles are just behind it, including Alternative chart crossovers from Coldplay at #2 and Imagine Dragons at #3. After some higher debuts on last week’s survey, Lorde and Tones And I are tied for this week’s Biggest Mover, as “Solar Power” (36-27) and “Cloudy Day” (35-26) advance nine notches on the list. The two debuts in the countdown are also by women: newcomer Holly Humberstone is new at #39 with “The Walls Are Way Too Thin”, while Olivia Rodrigo starts at #40 with “Brutal”, the fourth single to rank from her recent chart-topping album Sour.

Chart Notes:

  • “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” holds down the top spot on my personal chart for a fourth week, as Elle King and Miranda Lambert continue their reign for another update. Look for their song to perform well at the Country radio format soon, where it officially heads for adds on Monday. John Mayer had last week’s top debut with “Last Train Home”, which now rolls up the track from 39-30 this week, making it the Biggest Mover on the chart. Four new tunes are on the list this week: Tones And I leads the way with “Cloudy Day”, which lands at #35. Right behind her, Lorde returns with “Solar Power”, which brightens the #36 spot. For hits and health-related needs, Dayglow has the perfect pop prescription with his “Medicine”, debuting at #37. Lastly, Wrabel is back on the chart with “Nothing But The Love”, which is loved with an entry at #39.
