Chart Notes:

  • Zara Larsson scores her first #1 song on my personal chart with “All The Time”, soaring from 4-1 this week. She previously peaked at #5 late last year with “Ruin My Life”. The new radio singles for Taylor Swift and Why Don’t We tie for the week’s Biggest Mover, with “Lover” and “What Am I”, respectively, climbing seven notches. There’s quite a bit of debut action at the bottom of the chart, led by Lizzo‘s “Good As Hell” at #34. The 2016 release is now a solid sales and streaming hit thanks to Lizzo’s heightened profile and a recent award show performance. The other three entries land between #38 and #40 on my list, with “Let It Be Me” from Steve Aoki and the Backstreet Boys at #38, followed by “I’ll Be There” by Walk Off The Earth just behind them and “Kill My Mind” by Louis Tomlinson anchoring the bottom of the survey. This marks the first chart appearance for producer Aoki to date. The first two titles impact at the Hot AC format at some point this month.

Chart Notes:

  • Climbing from 3-1 this week, “Timebomb” becomes the fifth #1 on my personal chart for the Ohio band Walk The Moon. They last led my top 40 in late 2017 with “One Foot”, which had a six-week run at the summit. Hot singles from Kacey Musgraves, P!nk and Rob Thomas move up the most positions on the current update, with Thomas’s “One Less Day (Dying Day)” climbing the furthest, up a huge 11 spots to #26. John Mayer‘s “I Guess I Just Feel Like” leads a pack of three debuts on the countdown, coming in at #34. This track follows “New Light”, which held in the #2 spot for two weeks on my list last year. Billie Eilish scores her first chart single at #37 with the song “When The Party’s Over”, one of two active radio tracks from the highly-anticipated album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, due at the end of the month. As “When” soars at the Top 40 format, the other tune, “Bury A Friend”, is nearing the top 20 on the Alternative chart. Finally, at #38, Julia Michaels and Niall Horan team up for the collaboration “What A Time”, the lead radio single from the former artist’s recent EP Inner Monologue, Pt. 1. The song recently went for adds at the Top 40 format during the same week as Eilish’s record noted above, earning over three dozen adds in a week.

Chart Notes:

  • As the Las Vegas group Imagine Dragons remains at #1 for the second week with “Bad Liar” and Kacey Musgraves climbs from 26-16 with “Rainbow”, the week’s Biggest Mover, two top 40 veterans with multiple chart-toppers enter the list with their new hits. In at #31, P!nk has the higher of the two debuts with “Walk Me Home”, which isn’t a hot remake of the 2000 chart entry performed by Mandy Moore. This “Walk” is the lead single from her forthcoming album Hurts 2B Human, due in April. Look out for its splashy debut in the top 25 on the Hot AC survey. A tune that just missed the top 40 on that list this week, but is likely to enter soon, comes in at #37 on my own list: “One Less Day (Dying Young)” from Rob Thomas. His forthcoming album Chip Tooth Smile is also due in April. Thomas has the distinction of reaching the summit as both a solo artist and with the band Matchbox Twenty, but he’s had more #1 hits on my chart outside of the act. Will either of these entries bloom at the top this spring? We’ll find out soon.

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.
