Chart Notes:

  • In likely their final week at #1, Coldplay holds onto the top spot for a fourth week on my personal chart with “Higher Power”. It marks the group’s longest run at the summit since 2014, when “A Sky Full Of Stars” also spent four weeks on top. Imagine Dragons claim this week’s Biggest Mover with “Wrecked”, rising from 38-30 in its second week in the countdown. For debuts, we have three of them: trio Walk The Moon is back with their first entry in two years, “Can You Handle My Love??”, landing at #37. Michael Franti & Spearhead look to spread some positivity with “Good Day For A Good Day” at #38. Finally, checking in at #40, is the other debut posing a question this week: “Where Do You Wanna Go?”, the first chart song in 19 years for 98 Degrees. Member Nick Lachey managed to appear on my chart with a handful of solo entries through 2009, but this is the quartet’s first time on my list since “Why (Are We Still Friends)”.

Chart Notes:

  • My personal chart is still intoxicated by Elle King and Miranda Lambert with “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)”, which remains at #1 for its fifth (and perhaps final) week. A steady stream of bulleted titles are just behind it, including Alternative chart crossovers from Coldplay at #2 and Imagine Dragons at #3. After some higher debuts on last week’s survey, Lorde and Tones And I are tied for this week’s Biggest Mover, as “Solar Power” (36-27) and “Cloudy Day” (35-26) advance nine notches on the list. The two debuts in the countdown are also by women: newcomer Holly Humberstone is new at #39 with “The Walls Are Way Too Thin”, while Olivia Rodrigo starts at #40 with “Brutal”, the fourth single to rank from her recent chart-topping album Sour.

Chart Notes:

  • “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” holds down the top spot on my personal chart for a fourth week, as Elle King and Miranda Lambert continue their reign for another update. Look for their song to perform well at the Country radio format soon, where it officially heads for adds on Monday. John Mayer had last week’s top debut with “Last Train Home”, which now rolls up the track from 39-30 this week, making it the Biggest Mover on the chart. Four new tunes are on the list this week: Tones And I leads the way with “Cloudy Day”, which lands at #35. Right behind her, Lorde returns with “Solar Power”, which brightens the #36 spot. For hits and health-related needs, Dayglow has the perfect pop prescription with his “Medicine”, debuting at #37. Lastly, Wrabel is back on the chart with “Nothing But The Love”, which is loved with an entry at #39.

Chart Notes:

  • “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” holds atop my personal chart for a third week, as Elle King and Miranda Lambert face some new competition from Coldplay, who advance from 5-2 with “Higher Power”. We’ll see what happens with both titles in the coming weeks. After debuting on last week’s chart at #39, Ben Rector leaps to #30 with the Steve Winwood-assisted “Range Rover”, which makes it the Biggest Mover of the week. Two new entries rank towards the bottom of this week’s countdown, led by John Mayer at #39 with “Last Train Home”. It’s the fourth top 40 entry from his upcoming album Sob Rock: the first was 2018’s “New Light”, which peaked at #2 that summer. Meanwhile, Dua Lipa extends her Future Nostalgia era with “Love Again”, debuting at #40. A total of five songs from the album have gone to #1 on my chart since last year and a sixth song from a reissue of the set recently peaked at #2.
