Chart Notes:

  • It leaped from 34-21-10-4 over the last month, but this week, “Cold Heart” hits the top spot on my personal chart for Elton John and Dua Lipa. The song is the first #1 on my list for the legendary John and the record-breaking tenth for Lipa, who knocks her own “Love Again” off the top and down to #2. Two songs tie for this week’s Biggest Mover: up ten spots, “Justified” jumps from 27-17 for Kacey Musgraves, while the reunited ABBA climbs from 40-30 with “Don’t Shut Me Down”. Four songs reach the top 40 this week, all performed by solo men: Ed Sheeran has the top new entry at #36 with “Shivers”, Troye Sivan is in at #38 with “Angel Baby”, Andy Grammer debuts at #39 with “Damn It Feels Good To Be Me” and John Mayer lands at #40 with “Wild Blue”. The four have a combined eight prior #1 hits on my chart between them: Mayer with three, Sheeran and Sivan with two and Grammer with one.

Chart Notes:

  • Another week, another round of chart wins for Dua Lipa! This time around, “Love Again” holds at #1 for the fifth week, while “Cold Heart” (her collaboration with Elton John) continues its fast ascent with a move from 10-4. Now, will Lipa replace herself at the top? It seems pretty likely, but we’ll see what plays out soon. Lifting from 35-27, Kacey Musgraves earns the Biggest Mover in the countdown with “Justified”. Duran Duran has the week’s Highest Debut with a new single from their upcoming album Future Past: at #34, that’s “Anniversary”. This track follows “Invisible”, which recently got to #3. The two other entries are from one act, a legendary Swedish quartet with their first studio album in 40 years: ABBA. “I Still Have Faith In You” and “Don’t Shut Me Down” debut at #37 and #40, respectively, which are both featured on their upcoming album Voyage.

Two buzzing collaborations reach the countdown this week, with Shawn Mendes and Tainy coming in the highest at #35 with “Summer Of Love”. The tune is nearing the top 30 at both the Hot AC and Top 40 radio formats. A spot lower, “Move” lands at #36 for Santana, Rob Thomas and American Authors. In 1999, Santana and Thomas reached #2 on my chart with their classic “Smooth”. Will the cut from the 74-year-old legend’s forthcoming album Blessings And Miracles perform as smoothly? Stay tuned.

With her ninth #1 hit overall, she is tied with Coldplay and Taylor Swift, who are also at that threshold. Silk Sonic are skating up the countdown from 39-28 with “Skate”, becoming the Biggest Mover of the week. On the bottom of the list, we have one debut this week: a recent viral song from independent newcomer Vaultboy. “Everything Sucks” sneaks in at #40.

We’ll see what happens with both titles in the coming weeks. After debuting on last week’s chart at #39, Ben Rector leaps to #30 with the Steve Winwood-assisted “Range Rover”, which makes it the Biggest Mover of the week. Two new entries rank towards the bottom of this week’s countdown, led by John Mayer at #39 with “Last Train Home”. It’s the fourth top 40 entry from his upcoming album Sob Rock: the first was 2018’s “New Light”, which peaked at #2 that summer. Meanwhile, Dua Lipa extends her Future Nostalgia era with “Love Again”, debuting at #40. A total of five songs from the album have gone to #1 on my chart since last year and a sixth song from a reissue of the set recently peaked at #2.

RECORD REWIND 2020: PGTC Picks, Week Twenty

Sunday afternoon means it’s time for the Record Rewind, highlighting the top new tracks that you might’ve missed during the work week, all from my favorite small label and independent acts out there. If it’s on the site, it’s something that you need to check out!

Across the PGTC SoundCloud page and my playlists on Spotify, these stuck out as my favorite independent songs of the week…

_____

PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
BLAKE ROSE – “Rest Of Us” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Seventh appearance

Australian singer/songwriter Rose continues to put out some quality releases, including his new track from earlier in the week. Co-written with Tim Pagnotta, best known for his work with acts like Neon Trees and Walk The Moon, this ballad is his best in a while.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
JAKE SCOTT – “Learning To Love You” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Fifth appearance

Learning has been an essential part of this time of self-isolation, so it’s no surprise that Scott’s track about learning to love becomes an essential part of this week’s independent spotlight. Co-written with longtime collaborator Thomas Macken, it’s a very pretty cut.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
BEN RECTOR – “It Would Be You”
CAROLINE ROMANO & R3HAB – “I Still Remember”
DES ROCS – “Wayne”
JORDAN SUASTE – “Body”
KATELYN TARVER – “Made It This Far”
