Chart Notes:

  • It’s another tasty and tangy week at #1 for Lizzo‘s “Juice”, which remains at the summit for a second week, while Shawn Mendes makes a big leap from 31-16 with the Biggest Mover on the chart, “If I Can’t Have You”. (Hey, did our cassingle get lost in the mail?) Though much of the top 20 is bulleted this week, creating a bit of a logjam, Mendes’s song should be in the top ten in the next two weeks. The only debut on the list, new at #34, is the first top 40 collaboration for pop stars Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber. “I Don’t Care” was released on Friday, climbing to #1 on iTunes and Spotify’s U.S. charts, while surging at several radio formats. It’s the latest big summer release, but watch out: there’s more to come.

Chart Notes:

  • In its 14th week on the chart, the first top 40 entry for Lizzo becomes her first #1 song on my chart. “Juice” leaps from 4-1. The tune is featured on the album Cuz I Love You, which recently debuted and peaked at #6 on the Billboard 200. Lizzo’s release is currently charting on the Top 40 and Urban AC charts, though it is receiving more minor airplay at several other formats. As Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie‘s “ME!” jumps a massive 16 spots to #12, easily the Biggest Mover in the countdown, there are four entries in the lower rungs of the chart. Shawn Mendes gets in on the action at #31 with the highest of the four songs, “If I Can’t Have You”. The single is expected to debut in the top 30 on both the Hot AC and Top 40 charts on tomorrow’s published update. His last top 40 hit here, “Lost In Japan”, peaked at #3 last November. Bastille climbs in at #34 with “Joy”, which follows their four-week #1 “Happier” (with Marshmello) that also peaked in November of last year. Checking in at #38, actor and singer Ben Platt earns his first top 40 song with “Grow As We Go”, the first radio single from his album Sing To Me Instead. Maren Morris also debuts with “The Bones”, the follow-up to “Girl”, which slides in at #39. Morris’s hit impacts at the Hot AC format in two weeks, as Platt and Mendes’s singles face off on the adds report this Monday. (Bastille’s new one heads for adds at Alternative radio this Tuesday.)

Chart Notes:

  • Congrats to newcomer Alec Benjamin, whose first top 40 hit becomes my first #1 song of 2019. “Let Me Down Slowly” is now at the top in its 15th week on the chart, which is a fairly slow climb, but by no means a record. The song is included on his mixtape called Narrated For You, which came out late last year. Seeb x Bastille take “Grip” up from 33-24, earning it the title of Biggest Mover on my newest update. A pair of new songs by Imagine Dragons (“Bad Liar”) and Jon Bellion (“Stupid Deep”) land at #37 and #38, respectively. A lyric video for the former debuted earlier this week, which is charting in countries like Australia, Norway and Switzerland, which the latter is being serviced to radio here in the U.S. very soon.

Chart Notes:

  • This will probably be Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper‘s last week atop my chart with their hit “Shallow”, which holds for a fourth week at the summit, losing its bullet in the process. As for a second radio single off the soundtrack to A Star Is Born, there’s no word yet if something will be serviced in the new year. Meanwhile, “Shallow” is still charting at three formats, ranking the highest (#7) on the Hot AC list. Newcomer Stephen Puth bows at #39 with the only debut on the chart this week: “Sexual Vibe”, his first release for a major label. Singer Charlie Puth is his older brother; he’s a writer on my current #8 song, “Love You Anymore” by Michael Bublé.
