Chart Notes:

  • In its 14th week on the chart, the first top 40 entry for Lizzo becomes her first #1 song on my chart. “Juice” leaps from 4-1. The tune is featured on the album Cuz I Love You, which recently debuted and peaked at #6 on the Billboard 200. Lizzo’s release is currently charting on the Top 40 and Urban AC charts, though it is receiving more minor airplay at several other formats. As Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie‘s “ME!” jumps a massive 16 spots to #12, easily the Biggest Mover in the countdown, there are four entries in the lower rungs of the chart. Shawn Mendes gets in on the action at #31 with the highest of the four songs, “If I Can’t Have You”. The single is expected to debut in the top 30 on both the Hot AC and Top 40 charts on tomorrow’s published update. His last top 40 hit here, “Lost In Japan”, peaked at #3 last November. Bastille climbs in at #34 with “Joy”, which follows their four-week #1 “Happier” (with Marshmello) that also peaked in November of last year. Checking in at #38, actor and singer Ben Platt earns his first top 40 song with “Grow As We Go”, the first radio single from his album Sing To Me Instead. Maren Morris also debuts with “The Bones”, the follow-up to “Girl”, which slides in at #39. Morris’s hit impacts at the Hot AC format in two weeks, as Platt and Mendes’s singles face off on the adds report this Monday. (Bastille’s new one heads for adds at Alternative radio this Tuesday.)

Chart Notes:

  • Singer Kacey Musgraves holds onto the top spot for a second week with “Rainbow”, her first #1 on my personal chart. However, much of the action is smaller this time around, with the Biggest Mover climbing just five notches from last week: “Don’t Give Up On Me”, a new soundtrack cut from Five Feet Apart by Andy Grammer, takes the title with a move from 38-33. One debut lands in the top 40, another soundtrack song off the wildly popular set from A Star Is Born. Lady Gaga lands at #39 with “Always Remember Us This Way”. While “Shallow”, her duet with co-star Bradley Cooper, has a second life at several radio formats, this reactive cut has also earned unsolicited airplay in several big markets.

Chart Notes:

  • After narrowly missing the top spot last year with “High Horse”, which had a four-week run at #2, Kacey Musgraves easily secures a #1 song this time around with a short six-week sprint to the summit for “Rainbow”. Both this cut and “High” are from her Grammy-winning set Golden Hour, with the former continuing to see increased airplay at a handful of radio formats following her performance on the recent award show. A total of four debuts land on this week’s chart update, led by Louis Tomlinson‘s “Two Of Us” at #37. “Two” marks Tomlinson’s third solo song outside of One Direction to make my survey. The soundtrack cut “Don’t Give Up On Me”, featured in Five Feet Apart, starts at #38 for Andy Grammer. Further entries from Noah Kahan (“Mess”) at #39 and George Ezra (“Pretty Shining People”) at #40 round out the list; “Mess” recently impacted at the Triple A radio format, while “Pretty” spiked in the U.K. last week after its music video debuted.
