Chart Notes:

  • Coldplay still believes in a “Higher Power”, as their current single endures for a third powerful week atop my personal chart. This week’s Biggest Mover in the countdown is “Renegade”, a collaboration from Big Red Machine (the duo of Aaron Dessner and Justin Vernon) and Taylor Swift, leaping from 37-27. The three new singles on this week’s list are all impacting at different radio formats through the end of the month: Imagine Dragons head for adds at Alternative and Triple A radio this coming week with “Wrecked”, which lands at #38. Sliding in at #39, “I Quit Drinking” officially hits the Hot AC format next Monday for Kelsea Ballerini and LANY. Finally, at #40, chart newcomers SUPER-Hi x Neeka bask in their sunny outlook at Top 40 radio for the last Tuesday in July with “Following The Sun”, a song that is currently popular in Austria and Germany.
