A new song from Lizzo, her fourth top 40 entry of the year, debuts at #38. “Water Me” is earning airplay at several formats, though the track has not been officially serviced to radio at this point. (Stay tuned for updates in a few weeks.) Meanwhile, newcomer Spencer Sutherland breaks onto the list with “Grateful” at #39, which is also on the pop airwaves thanks to a handful of early stations. A couple of years ago, he was briefly featured on the U.K. version of The X Factor. Sutherland’s most recent EP, NONE of this has been about you, came out in March.

Chart Notes:

  • Niall Horan remains at #1 for the fifth week on my personal chart with “Nice To Meet Ya”, even as the performer releases a new one-off track called “Put A Little Love On Me”, which enters the Next In Line section after debuting on Friday. The latest radio singles from Lewis Capaldi and Maggie Rogers tie for this week’s Biggest Mover, both up seven spots from last week. Four huge debuts blast onto the chart, with “Adore You” by Harry Styles leading the way at #32. It’s the third song to chart from his Fine Line album, out next week. In with her first entry since 2012, Alanis Morissette starts at #36 with “Reasons I Drink”, the first single off her forthcoming May set Such Pretty Forks In The Road. At #39, with possibly the most intriguing collaboration on the list, Steve Aoki, Sting and SHAED debut with “2 In A Million”. Aoki’s recent top ten hit with the Backstreet Boys, “Let It Be Me”, is still in the top 20 here. Finally, at #40, newcomer Taylor Janzen enters on my personal chart with “What I Do…”, which already has some minor airplay at the Alternative and Triple A formats.
