Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut is by pop superstar Katy Perry, who brings along newcomer Skip Marley on the song “Chained To The Rhythm”. It enters the chart at #31. Perry was in the top 40 last fall with a quick top ten hit called “Rise”, but it’s a far cry from her four #1 singles: “Waking Up In Vegas”, “California Gurls”, “Firework” and “The One That Got Away”. Marley’s a 20-year-old singer and songwriter, born in Jamaica, who just so happens to be the grandson of reggae icon Bob Marley. At the current time, the song ranks in the top five on iTunes.
  • No, don’t adjust your calendar. It’s still 2017, but in one chart week, Blondie, Depeche Mode and Sting have all managed to place debuting songs in the top 40. Hey, I have to serve that retro realness. Sting’s “One Fine Day” is new at #38, while the new one from Blondie, “Fun”, ranks at #39, and “Where’s The Revolution” from Depeche Mode revolutionizes the #40 spot. In all seriousness, it’s great that all three acts are still creating quality music in 2017. It’s Sting’s seventh chart song, Blondie’s first and Depeche Mode’s third.
  • New radio singles from JP Cooper and Michael Bublé are looking to make some moves in the top 40 soon, but new songs from James TW and Maroon 5 will be also be out by the end of the week. Tough one! Check back to see what gets onto the chart next Sunday.

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut is by a group that’s never hit my top 40 before, but they’ve had plenty of action on both the Triple A and Alternative charts. They are The Shins, and they’re new at #38 with “Name For You”. The tune is taken from the new album Heartworms, which is due next month. Look for it to hit the top of the Triple A survey soon.
  • Debuting a spot below them is “Believer” by Imagine Dragons, which rolls in at #39. You’ll be hearing this one in an ad for a video game company during the Super Bowl, which means it could see a big spike in sales and streams during the week. The release date and title of their third studio album have not been announced yet.
  • New singles and album cuts from Blondie, Depeche Mode and Michelle Branch all enter below the top 40 this week. It looks like there could be several debuts on the horizon next week, so check back to see what gets onto the chart!

Chart Notes:

  • For the second week in a row, singer and songwriter Julia Michaels has the week’s Biggest Mover with “Issues”. On my last chart, she tied for the title, moving 37-31. Now, she holds it by herself, jumping from 31-22. Michaels, born in Davenport, IA before moving west, also enters the top 40 on the CHR/Top 40 chart this week, joining a list of Iowa-born musicians to rank on the national pop list that includes Andy Williams, C.W. McCall, Glenn MillerNate Ruess and Tracie Spencer.
  • Two recent crossovers to the Hot AC format break into the top 40 this week: at #38, “All We Ever Knew” marks the debut of Seattle’s The Head And The Heart on my chart. The song topped the Alternative radio chart for a week in November. At #40 is the recent chart-topping Country hit by Keith Urban, “Blue Ain’t Your Color”. His song got some key adds recently, and it looks like it’s bound to see some more action in the coming weeks.
  • New singles from Sting and The Shins seem like the most likely candidates to debut in my top 40 next week, at least at the current time. Remember, anything can change. Check back next Sunday to see what happens!
