Chart Notes:

  • Scoring her first #1 single on my chart since 2002’s “Sk8er Boi”, a 16-year (!) gap, Avril Lavigne is up from 2-1 on my current update with “Head Above Water”. The track falls just short of the record established by “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” by Backstreet Boys a few months back, which became that act’s first #1 hit on my chart in nearly 17 years. It’s also a pretty nice week for debuts, led by “1999” by Charli XCX featuring Troye Sivan at #38. Sivan is aiming for his third chart-topper on my survey, having previously led with 2016’s “Youth” and 2018’s “My My My!”, while Charli XCX is looking for her first. Jack & Jack debut just below that collaboration at #39 with “No One Compares To You”. Their new one is their second release to chart here, with “Beg” ranking on my list earlier this year. Finally, new at #40, Mark Ronson unites with Miley Cyrus for the hit “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart”. Currently in the top five on iTunes in the U.S. and internationally, the single comes from Ronson’s forthcoming studio album, due next year.

Looking to land his third consecutive #1 hit here, George Ezra has the week’s Highest Debut at #36 with “Hold My Girl”. His most recent chart-topper, “Shotgun”, drops from 17-19 on the current list. A few spots lower, bowing at #40, is the second cut from The Greatest Showman: Reimagined to reach my chart.

She’s led my personal chart with a pair of releases: 2012’s “Good Time” (with Owl City) and 2015’s “I Really Like You”. Her last top 40 entry, 2017’s “Cut To The Feeling”, peaked at #8. A notch below Jepsen, with her fourth title to chart this year, Ariana Grande climbs aboard at #37 with “Thank U, Next”. The song, which was released last Saturday night, holds at #1 on digital services such as Apple Music, iTunes and Spotify. It also enters the top 40 on this week’s Top 40 radio chart. Finally, at #39, the Backstreet Boys return with “Chances”, which follows their #1 single of earlier this year, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”, still riding the countdown at #31. Their latest tune impacts at the Hot AC format on Monday.

Up nine spots to #19, Maggie Rogers has the week’s Biggest Mover for the second time with “Light On”. Of the week’s three new entries, Kelly Clarkson‘s “Heat” debuts the highest, coming in at #38. It’s the third top 40 tune from Meaning Of Life, with “Love So Soft” (#2) and “I Don’t Think About You” (#5) both becoming larger hits. Scott Helman is new at #39 with the title song from a three track release called Hang Ups. He has three top ten songs to date; his biggest, “Kinda Complicated”, reached #4 last year. Lastly, at #40 this week, Irish act Picture This earns their second chart record with “One Drink”. It impacts at the Hot AC format this Monday.
