It’s their collaboration from John’s The Lockdown Sessions project, which is due in less than two weeks. Tied for the week’s Biggest Mover, Coldplay and BTS leap from 27-21 on the chart with “My Universe”, while the late Whitney Houston rises from 40-34 with a Clean Bandit remix of 1986’s “How Will I Know”. Sting leads a batch of three debuts that could be from 1985 or 2021, as “Rushing Water” (from his upcoming album The Bridge) flows onto the chart at #33. John Mellencamp and Bruce Springsteen debut at #38 with “Wasted Days”, while Tears For Fears are in at #39 with the title cut from The Tipping Point, their first studio album since 2004.

The former’s “Higher Power”, a recent #1 hit on my chart, is down to #16.

Chart Notes:

  • For the second week in a row, “Cold Heart” leads my personal chart for Elton John and Dua Lipa. The latest release from Ed Sheeran is the Biggest Mover in the countdown, as “Shivers” jumps from 36-21 and paces well ahead of other notable moves for songs from Duran Duran and Kacey Musgraves, among others. Coming in at #38, this week’s only debut is from MUNA and Phoebe Bridgers with “Silk Chiffon”. The latter artist has never previously appeared on my chart, but the trio ranked at #1 for two weeks in 2017 with “I Know A Place”.

Chart Notes:

  • Another week, another round of chart wins for Dua Lipa! This time around, “Love Again” holds at #1 for the fifth week, while “Cold Heart” (her collaboration with Elton John) continues its fast ascent with a move from 10-4. Now, will Lipa replace herself at the top? It seems pretty likely, but we’ll see what plays out soon. Lifting from 35-27, Kacey Musgraves earns the Biggest Mover in the countdown with “Justified”. Duran Duran has the week’s Highest Debut with a new single from their upcoming album Future Past: at #34, that’s “Anniversary”. This track follows “Invisible”, which recently got to #3. The two other entries are from one act, a legendary Swedish quartet with their first studio album in 40 years: ABBA. “I Still Have Faith In You” and “Don’t Shut Me Down” debut at #37 and #40, respectively, which are both featured on their upcoming album Voyage.

Two new releases debut on my chart, both by acts who have previously reached the top spot: Kacey Musgraves is in at #35 with “Justified”, while The Script starts at #37 with “I Want It All”. A new album (Star-Crossed) from Musgraves is due on September 10, while the trio’s first compilation (Tales From The Script: Greatest Hits) hits October 1.

Chart Notes:

  • It’s another super week on my personal chart for Dua Lipa, as “Love Again” spends a third week at #1 and “Cold Heart” (her collaboration with Elton John) lifts from 34-21, easily taking the Biggest Mover title this week. Two buzzing collaborations reach the countdown this week, with Shawn Mendes and Tainy coming in the highest at #35 with “Summer Of Love”. The tune is nearing the top 30 at both the Hot AC and Top 40 radio formats. A spot lower, “Move” lands at #36 for Santana, Rob Thomas and American Authors. In 1999, Santana and Thomas reached #2 on my chart with their classic “Smooth”. Will the cut from the 74-year-old legend’s forthcoming album Blessings And Miracles perform as smoothly? Stay tuned.

Her latest single becomes the record-extending sixth #1 song taken from the original version of her Future Nostalgia album. With her ninth #1 hit overall, she is tied with Coldplay and Taylor Swift, who are also at that threshold. Silk Sonic are skating up the countdown from 39-28 with “Skate”, becoming the Biggest Mover of the week. On the bottom of the list, we have one debut this week: a recent viral song from independent newcomer Vaultboy. “Everything Sucks” sneaks in at #40.
