Now independent, the singer and songwriter scored my #1 song of 2016 with “11 Blocks” while signed to the Epic label. Ashe‘s “Moral Of The Story” follows at #38, a track that surged in data at several platforms after it was featured in the Netflix film To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You. Finally, at #40, Tennis enters with “Need Your Love”. The duo’s album Swimmer was released last week.

Chart Notes:

Last week’s top debut on my chart from Niall Horan, “No Judgement”, earns the Biggest Mover title on the new update with a jump from 38-30. Following their recent #1 song “Orphans”, Coldplay debuts at #36 with “Champion Of The World” ahead of the single’s impact at Alternative and Triple A radio towards the end of the month. Matt Simons is also new to the top 40 at #37 with “Cold”, which earns him his first chart entry since the spring of 2018. It heads for adds at Triple A radio in the same week as Coldplay’s cut.

Chart Notes:

  • After three weeks in the runner-up position, JP Saxe and Julia Michaels have the new #1 song on my personal chart with “If The World Was Ending”. It’s the first chart-topper for Saxe and the second for Michaels, who spent a week at the top in 2017 with “Issues”. On Friday, Saxe saw the release of his new EP titled Hold It Together. Niall Horan‘s “No Judgement” is the week’s Highest Debut at #38, immediately followed by Smith & Thell‘s “Goliath” at #39 and Kodaline‘s “Wherever You Are” at #40. “No” is the ninth solo top 40 single for Horan, the last three of which have come from his upcoming album Heartbreak Weather, due March 13. Meanwhile, the Swedish duo earns their third chart entry and the Irish group lands their first.
