Ed Sheeran takes the Biggest Mover title with his newest release “Afterglow”, soaring from 27-17 in its second week in the top 40. Entering at #39 this week is 78-year-old Paul McCartney with “Find My Way”, the oldest male soloist to ever appear on my chart. It’s taken from his album McCartney III, which came in at #2 on the Billboard 200 list recently. The aforementioned Styles also debuts with “Treat People With Kindness” at #40. A music video for the song premiered several days ago, though it’s not currently being promoted as a radio single.
