Chart Notes:

  • Two hits from the Alternative chart make their way into my top ten this week. Up from 14-9 is Coldplay‘s “Up&Up”, which becomes their 11th top ten since 2005. The group is tied for the most #1 singles ever on my personal chart with seven; will a record eighth be in their future? We’ll see soon. Soaring from 17-10 is the second entry, “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore” by Phantogram. It’s the duo’s first time in the region.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is by a California singer/songwriter that made my top ten in her first seven chart appearances, a duet with Jason Mraz among them. Colbie Caillat returns with her 11th top 40 single, “Goldmine”, entering at #37. The single marks her first away from Republic (formerly Universal Republic) Records. You’ll now find her under her own label, PlummyLou, distributed by Sony’s RED.
  • At #39 is the week’s only other debut, “Fresh Eyes” by Andy Grammer. It’s his seventh single to reach my top 40, and the first from his forthcoming third album. Since my chart began in 1999, two “Eyes” songs saw their way to the top. In 2005, it was “Behind These Hazel Eyes” from Kelly Clarkson, which held at #1 for four weeks. Two years later, “Her Eyes” by Pat Monahan spent five weeks there.

Chart Notes:

  • There’s a familiar name taking the throne on my personal chart. The London quartet Bastille has their third #1 single with “Good Grief”, which climbs 3-1 in its sixth week in the countdown. It’s taken from their upcoming album Wild World, which is released on September 9. (You’ll find that release date to be a common one in this week’s notes.) Their previous #1 songs were 2013’s “Pompeii” and 2014’s “Of The Night”, which each spent two weeks at the top. We’ll see if this can get to three.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is a new hit for the Los Angeles act called Grouplove. “Welcome To Your Life” comes in at #32. It leads their forthcoming third album, Big Mess, due on September 9. It was four years ago this month that “Tongue Tied” led my chart for two weeks. Though they’ve hit the top five a couple of times since that single, they haven’t been back to the top spot. Will this be the song to do it? Stay tuned.
  • In the fall of 2003, singer/songwriter Gavin DeGraw scored his first top 40 hit on my chart with “Follow Through”. It hit a peak of #11. This week, his new single enters the top 40 at #39. It’s “She Sets The City On Fire”, featured on the upcoming album Something Worth Saving, due September 9. DeGraw’s biggest hit on my chart remains “Chariot”, which reached #2 in 2005.
  • Finally, at #40, is Seattle singer Mary Lambert and “Hang Out With You”. It’s her first single to be released since her exit from Capitol Records earlier this year. (She’s now under the independent Tender Heart label.) In 2014, “Secrets” got to #8 on my chart, the only charting song from the Heart On My Sleeve album.

TURN IT UP TUESDAY: What’s New In Stores This Week (October 21)

Looking for some not-so-"Mediocre" numbers.

Looking for some not-so-“Mediocre” numbers.

Rappers, rockers, reindeer lovers: they’re all in the mix this week as Q4 keeps chugging along at a faster pace. Here’s what albums and singles are in stores for the week of October 21:

  • No longer a Trouble Man and putting in his Paperwork is T.I., who has been hot on Rhythmic and Urban radio with hit singles like “About The Money” and “No Mediocre”, the former featuring Young Thug and the latter featuring Iggy Azalea. This is the rapper’s first album in two years and first since making the leap from Atlantic to Columbia Records. Look for it to be a contender for #1 next week. (iTunes)
  • Metal monsters Slipknot haven’t released a new studio album since 2008, but that changes this week when .5: The Gray Chapter debuts in stores. A single from it, “The Devil In I”, is shooting towards the #1 spot on the Active Rock airwaves, currently positioned at #2. Given the extended gap of time and high-ranking pre-release singles, this may also be in reach of the top. (iTunes)
  • After finishing their last era with a minor chart single called “Sober”, country quartet Little Big Town go for some “Day Drinking” on their latest set, Pain Killer. “Day” is currently top ten at Country radio and it appears that they’re due for another successful era. It should make a run at the top five on the Billboard 200, though it’ll fall short of #1. (iTunes)
  • The 24-year-old rapper named Logic has been noted on the underground circuit and blogosphere for several years now with a series of Young Sinatra mixtapes. This week, his first full-length album, Under Pressure, is out. Likely to be the surprise of the week, you may see the set bowing in the top five when all is said and done. (iTunes)
  • Ho, ho, hold on one moment — we have some sensational stocking stuffers sizzling on the scene, including Anthony Hamilton‘s Home For The Holidays (iTunes), Earth, Wind & Fire‘s Holiday (iTunes) and Pentatonix‘s That’s Christmas To Me (iTunes).
  • Other releases out this week include: Andrea Bocelli‘s Opera, The Ultimate Collection (iTunes), Annie Lennox‘s Nostalgia (iTunes), Aretha Franklin‘s Sings The Great Diva Classics (iTunes), Billy Idol‘s Kings & Queens Of The Underground (iTunes), Boyz II Men‘s Collide (iTunes), Bush‘s Man On The Run (iTunes), Gavin DeGraw‘s Finest Hour: The Best Of Gavin DeGraw (iTunes), Jacquie Lee‘s Broken Ones (EP) (iTunes), Jerry Garcia‘s GarciaLive Volume 5: December 31st 1975, Keystone Berkeley (iTunes), Jessie Ware‘s Tough Love (iTunes), Kiesza‘s Sound Of A Woman (iTunes), Neil Diamond‘s Melody Road (iTunes), Primus‘s Primus & The Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble (iTunes), Susan Boyle‘s Hope (iTunes) and Vérité‘s Echo (EP) (iTunes).

New digital-only singles that you can buy this week include:

  • “Baby Don’t Lie”, the new single from singer Gwen Stefani. (iTunes)
  • “Lips Are Movin”, a movin’ musical moment from Meghan Trainor. (iTunes)
  • “Nobody”, a single from YouTube’s Ricky Dillon. (iTunes)
  • “Outside”, a collaboration from Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding. (iTunes)
  • “Welcome To New York”, a digital single from Taylor Swift. (iTunes)

A country chanteuse turned pop princess has a pretty huge album coming out on Monday… gee, I wonder who it could be? That swiftly approaching record, along with the rest of the new releases, are coming up in a full preview on Sunday night.
