Chart Notes:

  • Earning a second week at #1, Katy Perry‘s “Never Really Over” holds strong at the top. In fact, the entire top five is frozen from last week. On the move from 23-15, Zara Larsson‘s new single “All The Time” is the Biggest Mover once again and headed towards the top ten. We also say hello to a pair of debuts this week, led by P!nk and Cash Cash‘s “Can We Pretend” at #37. It’s one of three songs that P!nk has on the list this week, all coming from her most recent set Hurts 2B Human, and impacts at Hot AC radio this coming Monday. Stephen Puth‘s latest tune is also new to the countdown: “Look Away” enters at #40. (No, it’s not a Chicago remake.) Puth previously reached my chart with “Sexual Vibe” earlier this year, which topped out at #19.

In the meantime, Katy Perry earns her sixth #1 single on my chart with “Never Really Over”, up 2-1, while Kygo and Whitney Houston‘s “Higher Love” is the week’s Highest Debut, landing at #38. It’s the late Houston’s first song to enter my chart since 2002’s “Whatchulookinat”.

Chart Notes:

  • Shawn Mendes‘s big hit “If I Can’t Have You” remains at #1 on my personal chart for a second week, while it continues to rise at several radio formats. Meanwhile, three new tracks make it onto the chart: the highest, checking in at #36, is an updated version of “Come Tomorrow” by the Dave Matthews Band with Brandi Carlile. Late last year, the group peaked at #6 on my list with “Again And Again”. Rob Thomas debuts at #37 with “Can’t Help Me Now”, his follow-up to “One Less Day (Dying Young)”, a recent #2 entry that’s still in the top 20. Finally, at #38, the third top 40 title from Head Above Water arrives: that’s “I Fell In Love With The Devil” by Avril Lavigne. The title track from the set earned a week at the summit late last year.

Chart Notes:

  • Shawn Mendes earns his third #1 single on my personal chart with “If I Can’t Have You”, moving from 2-1. The release follows 2017’s “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” and 2018’s “In My Blood”, which spent a combined total of five weeks at the summit. So far, there’s no word on a new studio album from the performer, but with two active songs on the radio, there should be some sort of announcement soon. Debuting on the list, Zara Larsson‘s “All The Time” (#34) and Cyn‘s “Holy Roller” (#39) appear following their impact date at the Top 40 radio format on Tuesday. “All” is expected to enter the top 50 on that chart in the next few days, while “Holy” still has a ways to go before it reaches the region. The former artist’s “Ruin My Life” got as high as #5 on my personal chart in December of last year and January of this year.

Chart Notes:

  • Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie‘s song “ME!” holds on for a fourth (and potentially final) week at #1 on my chart, while Swift’s “You Need To Calm Down” easily claims the Biggest Mover title with a huge surge from 35-20 in its second week in the countdown. Both releases can be found on her upcoming album Lover. There are three debuts in the top 40 this week, all coming from performers who have previously hit the top. New at #36, five-time chart-topper Michael Bublé leads the way with “Forever Now”, the second radio single from his album ❤️. Back at the end of January, “Love You Anymore” got to #3. One spot below him, James TW enters at #37 with “Incredible”. During the fall of 2016, he topped my list for seven weeks with “When You Love Someone” and has charted a handful of times since then. Lastly, at #39, a duo that’s earned a string of notable hits on my survey ever since it officially began in September 1999: the Goo Goo Dolls with “Miracle Pill”. As a trio, they last went to #1 in 2002 with the song “Here Is Gone”. This is their first top 40 entry here since “So Alive”, which spent two weeks at #16 in the summer of 2016.
