Chart Notes:

  • They’ve gone nearly 17 years without a #1 hit on my survey, but Backstreet’s back, alright! Up 2-1, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” puts the Backstreet Boys in the top spot for the first time since 2001’s “Drowning”, and that shatters the record for the longest wait between #1 singles. Ariana Grande‘s “God Is A Woman” maintains the title of Biggest Mover for the second week, soaring from 31-21 in its third week in the countdown. It’s the follow-up to “No Tears Left To Cry”, which got as high as #2 and currently sits at #6. Lastly, there are two new singles in the top 40 this week: “Happy Now” (#37) pairs Zedd and newcomer Elley Duhé, while “2002” (#38) marks a new chart entry for Anne-Marie. “Happy” impacts at the Top 40 format on Tuesday, while “2002” impacts at both the Hot AC and Top 40 formats next Monday and Tuesday.
