Both tracks can be found on his self-titled EP, which came out last month. His latest single goes for adds at CHR/Top 40 radio on September 27, though several key stations are playing it early.
  • At #38 is the week’s other debut, “Still Falling For You” by singer Ellie Goulding. You’ll be hearing it in the movie Bridget Jones’s Baby, due later this month. This is the second soundtrack hit for her on my chart. Last year, “Love Me Like You Do” from Fifty Shades Of Grey spent four weeks at #1.
  • Next week, we’ll see if Barns Courtney, Matt Simons, The Score or The Strumbellas can achieve their second entry on my top 40, but several newcomers are on the rise as well. Check back on Sunday to see what happens!

Chart Notes:

  • The week’s Highest Debut is from 18-year-old singer/songwriter James Taylor-Watts, better known as James TW. New at #38, “When You Love Someone” marks his first time on my chart. The original version is on his EP First Impressions, and a new acoustic mix is available as a stand-alone single. It’s been a moment since James Taylor was on my chart; his last song to reach my top 40 was “It’s Growing”, which went to #25 for two weeks in late 2008.
  • Nashville newcomer Cody Fry makes my top 40 at #39 with his single “Go”. He appeared as a contestant on American Idol in 2015. You can catch Fry playing in Ben Rector‘s band on his The Biggest Tour I Have Done So Far Tour, which goes into the fall. We’ll see if he can beat Rector’s #5 peak for “Brand New” from earlier this year.
  • Finally, at #40, is a big hit from the Country radio listing. Looking to crossover to the pop world, it’s “Setting The World On Fire” by Kenny Chesney, which features P!nk. It’s Chesney’s second single to reach my chart; “Somewhere With You” hit #23 for two weeks in 2011. His Cosmic Hallelujah album is due October 28.
