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:

  • Illenium and Jon Bellion move from 3-1 on this week’s chart with “Good Things Fall Apart”, the first #1 song for both acts. You can find the hit on Illenium’s album Ascend, which was released two weeks ago. Why Don’t We climbs from 40-33 with this week’s Biggest Mover, “What Am I”, one of last week’s top five Most Added singles at the Top 40 format. Two very lovable debuts also reach the top 40, with Taylor Swift‘s “Lover” bowing at #34 and Grace Potter‘s “Love Is Love” entering at #39. Swift’s album cut is looking to make the top 50 on both the Hot AC and Top 40 charts this week from unsolicited airplay, while Potter’s song may land just outside the top 40 on the Triple A chart.

Normani scores this week’s Biggest Mover with “Motivation”, taking a nice leap from 40-32. A pair of new songs reach the top 40 this week, led by the Diplo and Morgan Wallen collaboration “Heartless” at #39. Though Wallen’s hit the top of the Country radio chart twice since last year, this single impacts at the Hot AC format next month. One notch lower, the band Why Don’t We grabs their fourth top 40 entry on my chart with “What Am I”, which also heads for adds at the Hot AC and Top 40 formats next month.

Chart Notes:

  • Earning their second #1 song on my chart and first since the spring of 2012, Keane climbs from 2-1 with “The Way I Feel”. The band also rises from 40-33 with “Love Too Much”, the follow-up single. Both cuts can be found on their album Cause And Effect, due September 20. Debuting at #38, Ingrid Michaelson has this week’s highest new entry with “Young And In Love”, which follows her recent #9 entry “Missing You”. At #39, Freya Ridings earns her first top 40 single (following a few near misses) with “Castles”, a current top ten hit in Belgium and Scotland. A third new song checks in at #40: “Motivation” by Normani, which marks her first appearance on my list, though she’s had plenty of radio hits both as a solo artist and with the girl group Fifth Harmony. All three of this week’s new entries impact at either the Hot AC or Top 40 format by the end of the month.

Chart Notes:

  • Bastille remains at #1 for a third week with “Joy”, as bulleted entries from Keane and Taylor Swift round out the top three. Look for either “The Way I Feel” or “You Need To Calm Down” to move into the top spot next week. Speaking of Keane, the group also has one of three debuts in the top 40 with “Love Too Much”, which bows at #40. Both songs appear on their forthcoming studio album Cause And Effect, which is due September 20. The two other entries are from solo women: Katy Perry‘s “Small Talk” is in at #34, which serves as the follow-up to her recent #1 song “Never Really Over”, while Natasha Bedingfield‘s “Kick It” fights its way into the #39 spot. This is Bedingfield’s first track to hit my list in 6-1/2 years: her last entry, the Lifehouse collaboration “Between The Raindrops”, peaked at #7. Her latest album Roll With Me arrives on August 30.

Chart Notes:

  • Bastille stays at #1 for a second week with “Joy”, a current top ten hit on the Alternative radio survey, while Keane remains strong at #2 with their biggest song in seven years, “The Way I Feel”. Will it reach the top in the coming weeks? This battle is a tough one, but it could succeed. A pair of Australian artists have new songs in the top 40, with a reissue of Dean Lewis‘s “Waves” leading the way at #38. The original version of “Waves” bubbled under my chart in January and February of last year. A newer version of the track, which was remixed by Timbaland, impacts at the Hot AC format on Monday. A notch lower, at #39, it’s the first appearance of Tones And I with “Dance Monkey”. The viral smash ranks at #1 on the official singles chart in Australia as of earlier this weekend and continues to break across Europe.
