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)”.

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.

The tune heads for adds at Country radio in three weeks, while it continues its ascent towards the top 20 at Hot AC radio. From the album Sour, this week’s Biggest Mover is “Good 4 U”, soaring from 38-28 for Olivia Rodrigo. Four tracks are new to the top 40 this time around, with several former #1 acts among them. Coming in at #33, a new single from Bleachers called “Stop Making This Hurt” claims the Highest Debut of the bunch. Jack Antonoff has five chart-toppers to his credit: three as a member of fun. and two leading Bleachers. Duran Duran is visible at #36 with “Invisible”, the lead single from their upcoming 15th studio album. It’s been six years since the group last appeared at the summit with the Janelle Monáe and Nile Rodgers-assisted “Pressure Off”, which spent five weeks there. In at #38 this week, Anne-Marie and Niall Horan duet on “Our Song”, which impacts at the Hot AC format this coming Monday. Finally, TikTok star and singer Bella Poarch is in at #40 with her very first release: “Build A Bitch”, which is coming off a viral music video and plenty of social media buzz.
