Chart Notes:

  • Coldplay scores their ninth #1 single on my personal chart with “Higher Power”, advancing to the top after three weeks in the runner-up position. The group is back in a tie with Taylor Swift for the most #1 songs ever in my chart’s history. However, Dua Lipa might make that a three-way tie with “Love Again”, as her latest single soars from 25-18 to become the Biggest Mover of the week. Four tracks are new to the countdown, three of which are from artists who have claimed at least two #1 hits to date: Ed Sheeran, who lands way up at #28 with “Bad Habits”, followed by Bastille at #33 with “Distorted Light Beam” and Maroon 5 at #37 with “Lost”. The fourth and final entry comes from the duo Milky Chance, who take advantage of their chance at a debut with “Colorado” at #40.

Chart Notes:

  • Following the holidays, Harry Styles stays at #1 for a third week on my personal chart with “Golden”, while Taylor Swift leaps from 22-13 with “Willow”, the Biggest Mover for the second week in a row. Ed Sheeran makes his return to my chart at #27 with his surprise song “Afterglow”, which was released on Monday morning with little advance notice. Sheeran has indicated via social media that the track is not the first official single from his fifth studio album, but something that he still wanted to put out. Further down the list, the aforementioned Swift is in at #36 with another single from her Evermore album: the HAIM-assisted “No Body, No Crime”. The cut impacts at the Country radio format in two weeks.
