Chart Notes:

  • In likely their final week at #1, Coldplay holds onto the top spot for a fourth week on my personal chart with “Higher Power”. It marks the group’s longest run at the summit since 2014, when “A Sky Full Of Stars” also spent four weeks on top. Imagine Dragons claim this week’s Biggest Mover with “Wrecked”, rising from 38-30 in its second week in the countdown. For debuts, we have three of them: trio Walk The Moon is back with their first entry in two years, “Can You Handle My Love??”, landing at #37. Michael Franti & Spearhead look to spread some positivity with “Good Day For A Good Day” at #38. Finally, checking in at #40, is the other debut posing a question this week: “Where Do You Wanna Go?”, the first chart song in 19 years for 98 Degrees. Member Nick Lachey managed to appear on my chart with a handful of solo entries through 2009, but this is the quartet’s first time on my list since “Why (Are We Still Friends)”.

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.

Chart Notes:

  • Coldplay scores their ninth #1 single on my personal chart with “Higher Power”, advancing to the top after three weeks in the runner-up position. The group is back in a tie with Taylor Swift for the most #1 songs ever in my chart’s history. However, Dua Lipa might make that a three-way tie with “Love Again”, as her latest single soars from 25-18 to become the Biggest Mover of the week. Four tracks are new to the countdown, three of which are from artists who have claimed at least two #1 hits to date: Ed Sheeran, who lands way up at #28 with “Bad Habits”, followed by Bastille at #33 with “Distorted Light Beam” and Maroon 5 at #37 with “Lost”. The fourth and final entry comes from the duo Milky Chance, who take advantage of their chance at a debut with “Colorado” at #40.

Chart Notes:

  • My personal chart is still intoxicated by Elle King and Miranda Lambert with “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)”, which remains at #1 for its fifth (and perhaps final) week. A steady stream of bulleted titles are just behind it, including Alternative chart crossovers from Coldplay at #2 and Imagine Dragons at #3. After some higher debuts on last week’s survey, Lorde and Tones And I are tied for this week’s Biggest Mover, as “Solar Power” (36-27) and “Cloudy Day” (35-26) advance nine notches on the list. The two debuts in the countdown are also by women: newcomer Holly Humberstone is new at #39 with “The Walls Are Way Too Thin”, while Olivia Rodrigo starts at #40 with “Brutal”, the fourth single to rank from her recent chart-topping album Sour.

Lukas Graham – Happy For You
Matt Maltese – As The World Caves In (new)
Rozzi – I Can’t Go To The Party
Tomorrow x Together – Magic (new)

Chart Notes:

  • “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” holds atop my personal chart for a third week, as Elle King and Miranda Lambert face some new competition from Coldplay, who advance from 5-2 with “Higher Power”. 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.

Chart Notes:

  • For the second week in a row, “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” leads my personal chart, as Elle King and Miranda Lambert aim for a long stay at the summit for the summer. Duran Duran scores this week’s Biggest Mover with “Invisible”, which debuted at #36 last week and now moves to #27. A pair of new songs jump into the pop pool this week, with Noah Kahan splashing at #38 with “Part Of Me”. The title recently impacted at the Triple A format and is close to the top 50. Meanwhile, Ben Rector rides a wave into the #39 spot with the Steve Winwood-assisted “Range Rover”. The legendary featured artist, who plays the organ on this song, scored his first top 40 entry on my chart. He previously bubbled under the list with two singles from his 2008 album Nine Lives.
