Four new songs come onto the list, led by “Driver’s License” by newcomer Olivia Rodrigo at #29.

Chart Notes:

  • Miley Cyrus and Dua Lipa jump from 4-1 with “Prisoner”, the second single and chart-topper from the former’s Plastic Hearts album. It marks the third #1 single on my personal chart for Cyrus and the eighth for Lipa. Harry Styles rises from 40-33 with the Biggest Mover in the countdown: “Treat People With Kindness”. New tunes by Ava Max and Zara Larsson glide into the top 40, as the former’s “My Head & My Heart” enters at #38 and the latter’s “Talk About Love” starts at #40. Both have been serviced to the Top 40 radio format, with “Talk” impacting on Tuesday.

Chart Notes:

  • 2021 begins with Harry Styles holding at #1 for a fourth week on my personal chart with “Golden”. 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.
