Chart Notes:

  • Bleachers are back on my chart with the follow-up to “Don’t Take The Money”, which spent five weeks at the top earlier in the year. “I Miss Those Days” is this week’s Highest Debut at #38. Both songs are taken from the album Gone Now. “Don’t” is sure to be a notable contender for #1 on my year-end chart for 2017, but with four weeks left in the chart year, anything is possible! Stay tuned for more details on the schedule soon.
  • Singer Bishop Briggs makes her “Dream” a reality, as her new single enters at #39 on my newest chart. Last year, “River” went to #3 on the Alternative chart, giving the singer her biggest radio hit to date. (She’s currently rising at that format on a collaboration with the Cold War Kids titled “So Tied Up”, which is in the top 20.)
  • Finally, at #40, is The Script and “Arms Open”, the second top 40 hit from their Freedom Child album. It’s their 12th time on my chart since 2009. The previous single from their latest set, a former #2 song called “Rain”, drops to #13 this week.

Vance Joy – Lay It On Me (new)

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut belongs to “Sorry Not Sorry” from Demi Lovato, which definitely doesn’t have to apologize for it launching at the #38 position on the chart. The song debuted on Tuesday, hitting its #2 peak within hours on iTunes, while it impacts at the Top 40 format this coming Tuesday. (You’ll hear much more about it in the Add Lib report that night.) “Sorry” is expected to appear on her forthcoming sixth studio album, though a release date is not known at this time.
  • One spot below Lovato is the latest entry on my personal chart for The Script, the Irish trio with an impressive six #1 hits to date. The forecast calls for some “Rain”, as it falls on the #39 spot. The guys have ten top ten hits in a row, every single one of chart entries since 2009. By the way, this is not a hot Creed remake, but their “Rain” hit #20 on my chart in January 2010.

Chart Notes:

  • Two solo releases, two #1 songs: Niall Horan hits another home run with “Slow Hands”, up a notch from 2-1. His first track to reach the top spot on my chart was “This Town”, which spent its one week there in mid-December of last year. It looks like his first album won’t be out until the middle of the fall, so allow me to cry a few tears into my phone… (I’m sure it’ll be a great listen whenever it appears.) When it comes to Irish acts, The Script still leads with the most #1 songs (six) on my survey.
  • A powerful single from Kesha‘s upcoming album Rainbow premiered on Thursday, and it comes in as the Highest Debut on my personal chart this week. “Praying” leaps in at #37. The song was co-written by the singer, Ryan Lewis, Ben Abraham and Andrew Joslyn. The August 11 release looks to be a very diverse set, including collaborations with Dolly Parton and Eagles Of Death Metal, as well as the horn section from The Dap-Kings, who were led by the late Sharon Jones.
  • DJ/producer Zedd and singer Liam Payne team up on a hot new collaboration called “Get Low”, coming in at #38. Payne’s first solo hit, “Strip That Down”, advances from 8-5 this week and could reach the top spot sometime in August. The 23-year-old singer is one of two members from One Direction to debut on my latest chart, the second of whom also scores with two songs in the top 40. What can I say? It’s good to be them.
  • There are another two debuts below those titles in the countdown: at #39, Loote‘s “High Without Your Love” marks the first top 40 song for the male-female duo from New York City. A spot lower, at #40, Harry Styles claims his second solo hit with “Two Ghosts”. It’s the second radio single from his self-titled album; “Sign Of The Times”, a recent #1, now falls from 4-8.

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut is the seventh top 40 entry for Los Angeles’s Fitz And The Tantrums, the band that reached #1 on my chart with “MoneyGrabber” back in 2011. Since then, they’ve had four more top ten songs, with last year’s “HandClap” (#3) being the most recent. The group hasn’t announced a new album yet, but this looks to be the lead single from it. They’re on tour with James Arthur and OneRepublic this summer.
  • Katy Perry‘s fourth chart single from the #1 album Witness debuts at #40 this week, “Save As Draft”. The tune recently had a solid impact week at Hot AC radio, where it also sits just inside the top 40. The set’s third single, “Swish Swish”, looks to be over at the Top 40 format (and my own chart, where it falls 25-30 this week.) Thus, her era is still a mess. Congrats, I think…

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut is the third top 40 single for the 26-year-old out of Aylesbury, England named Barns Courtney. “Golden Dandelions” blooms at #39. Courtney had my #3 song of 2016 with “Fire”, which spent four weeks at #1. That single also reached the top five at Triple A radio and top 20 on the Alternative chart. He hasn’t released a full-length album yet. (An EP of his, The Dull Drums, was out earlier this year.)
  • The week’s other new entry is by another English singer and songwriter, 23-year-old Hertford-born George Ezra. He heads onto the survey at #40 with “Don’t Matter Now”. Of course, Ezra’s album Wanted On Voyage, released three years ago, gave him a handful of chart hits in Europe, including “Blame It On Me” and “Budapest”. Ezra’s second set is due later this year.

Chart Notes:

  • Congrats to Canadian singer/songwriter Shawn Mendes on his first #1 on my chart, “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back”. It climbs 2-1 in its ninth week in the countdown. Mendes went as high as #2 last year with “Treat You Better”. Another treasure from Canada, Carly Rae Jepsen, lands this week’s Highest Debut with “Cut To The Feeling”. The cut from Leap! hops in at #36. It’s Jepsen’s seventh time on my chart since 2012. Additionally, Irish duo Picture This lands in the picture at #39 with their first top 40 hit, “Never Change”.
  • Right now, as this post goes public, I’m likely dancing the night away at a family wedding. Needless to say, full commentary is going to be back next weekend.
