Chart Notes:

  • Adele not only earns a second consecutive week at #1 on my personal chart with “Easy On Me”, but follow-up “Oh My God” is the Biggest Mover in the top 40, climbing from 39-25 in its second week. This week’s three debuts come from GAYLE, Avril Lavigne and LANY: “Abcdefu” (#36), “Bite Me” (#39) and “Ex I Never Had” (#40) were all recently serviced to different radio formats. Of the three singles, two impact in the next couple of weeks: “Ex I Never Had” heads for adds at the Hot AC format on Monday, while “Abcdefu” has its official date at Top 40 radio in early December. (Lavigne’s “Bite Me” is nearing the top 40 at the Alternative format, as it’s seen some airplay activity since the middle of the month.)

Chart Notes:

The new singles from Silk Sonic and Taylor Swift tie for the Biggest Mover in the countdown this week, both moving up ten spots each. There are two new entries on the chart and the aforementioned Adele has one of them with “Oh My God”, a popular album cut that comes in at #39. It also ranks in the top 50 at the Hot AC radio format from unsolicited airplay. At #40, “See You Later (Ten Years)” marks the first chart entry for newcomer Jenna Raine, whose song became a recent viral hit on the video app TikTok.

Chart Notes:

  • The legendary Duran Duran secures a second week at #1 on my personal chart with “Anniversary”, while Adele waits in the wings with “Easy On Me”, which holds at #3 and could reach the top spot next week. This week’s Biggest Mover is from the duo Silk Sonic: jumping from 37-28, “Smokin’ Out The Window” is lighting up the countdown in its second week of activity. There are two new songs on the chart this week: from the upcoming film Sing 2, “Your Song Saved My Life” is in at #36 for U2. It is currently earning airplay at the Hot AC and Triple A radio formats. The other debut is from Red (Taylor’s Version), a re-recorded release of Taylor Swift‘s popular 2012 album. Originally intended for that set nine years ago, “Message In A Bottle” floats ashore at #40.

Chart Notes:

  • Forty years after releasing their debut album, Duran Duran is still making some quality music and their current single certainly proves it. “Anniversary” rises from 2-1 on my personal chart this week, becoming the band’s fourth #1 tune since 2005. It follows “Invisible”, the lead single from Future Past, which reached #3 earlier this year. American Idol alum Jax scores the week’s Biggest Mover with “Like My Father”, which leaps from 19-12 and continues to see airplay at the Hot AC radio format. The debut activity picks back up this week with four new titles in the top 40, led by the third chart entry from the duo Silk Sonic: at #37, “Smokin’ Out The Window” previews An Evening With Silk Sonic, which comes out on Friday. Another Idol alum is in at #38: it’s Benson Boone with “Ghost Town”, which continues to grow from a viral TikTok moment. Ed Sheeran is next with “Overpass Graffiti”, which lands at #39. It’s the third chart hit from his recent album =. Finally, Bastille enters at #40 with “No Bad Days”, the second song to chart from their forthcoming album Give Me The Future.

Chart Notes:

  • Elton John and Dua Lipa continue their strength at the top of my personal chart with “Cold Heart”, now in its seven week at the summit. John’s latest release The Lockdown Sessions is out now and should have a moderate entry on the Billboard 200 early next month. To no one’s surprise, Adele has the Biggest Mover on my chart with “Easy On Me”, which jumps from 18-7 on its way to the top spot. Meanwhile, Scott Helman beautifies the top 40 with this week’s only debut: “Pretty”, which comes in at #40.
