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:

  • Harry Styles scores his third solo #1 single on my personal chart, as “Golden” advances from 3-1 this week. It’s the second from the Fine Line album: “Adore You” spent three weeks at the summit in February and March. New at #31 this week, Taylor Swift has the highest of three new entries in the countdown with “Willow”, the lead single from her surprise release Evermore. The companion set to Folklore will start at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart later this month. The late Chris Cornell lands at #36 with a remake of John Lennon’s posthumous 1981 hit “Watching The Wheels”. It’s taken from a Cornell covers album that came out on Friday, No One Sings Like You Anymore. Lastly, Gwen Stefani comes in at #40 with “Let Me Reintroduce Myself”. It’s appropriate considering that this track marks her first to reach my chart since the summer of 2016.

Chart Notes:

  • Miley Cyrus spends a second week at #1 on my personal chart with “Midnight Sky”, with little action inside the top five this week. Lots of fast climbers shake up other parts of the countdown, however: four songs move up eight notches or more this week, with top tunes by Harry Styles and Why Don’t We trying for the Biggest Mover at nine each. Two debuts land at the bottom of the survey, with LANY starting at #39 with “If This Is The Last Time” and Ritt Momney coming in at #40 with his cover of “Put Your Records On”.
