Chart Notes:

  • Walk The Moon‘s “Timebomb” holds at #1 for a second week on my personal chart, marking the group’s 13th week overall at the summit over their five #1 singles since 2014. However, that entry’s run may be curtailed by Kacey Musgraves‘s “Rainbow”, which leaps from 7-2 in only its fifth week in the top 40. For now, the cut from Golden Hour ties for Musgraves’s highest-charting tune to date on my survey, with “High Horse” galloping into the runner-up position last year. Other notable movers in the top 40 include the latest Hot AC releases from John Mayer, P!nk and Rob Thomas, all of which are well on their way towards the top ten. Carly Rae Jepsen leads a pack of three new entries at #35 with one of the two tracks she released last week, “Now That I Found You”, which was recently featured in a trailer for the third season of Netflix’s Queer Eye. Impacting at the Top 40 format on Tuesday, “I’m So Tired…” by Lauv and Troye Sivan gets awakened with a #37 debut. Finally, the new single from Maggie Rogers heats up the top 40: at #38, her second chart entry is “Burning”. Her “Light On”, a former #3 hit, is still on the list this week.

Chart Notes:

  • Climbing from 3-1 this week, “Timebomb” becomes the fifth #1 on my personal chart for the Ohio band Walk The Moon. They last led my top 40 in late 2017 with “One Foot”, which had a six-week run at the summit. Hot singles from Kacey Musgraves, P!nk and Rob Thomas move up the most positions on the current update, with Thomas’s “One Less Day (Dying Day)” climbing the furthest, up a huge 11 spots to #26. John Mayer‘s “I Guess I Just Feel Like” leads a pack of three debuts on the countdown, coming in at #34. This track follows “New Light”, which held in the #2 spot for two weeks on my list last year. Billie Eilish scores her first chart single at #37 with the song “When The Party’s Over”, one of two active radio tracks from the highly-anticipated album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, due at the end of the month. As “When” soars at the Top 40 format, the other tune, “Bury A Friend”, is nearing the top 20 on the Alternative chart. Finally, at #38, Julia Michaels and Niall Horan team up for the collaboration “What A Time”, the lead radio single from the former artist’s recent EP Inner Monologue, Pt. 1. The song recently went for adds at the Top 40 format during the same week as Eilish’s record noted above, earning over three dozen adds in a week.
