Chart Notes:

  • New songs from Forest BlakkLeon Bridges and P!nk break into the top 40 this week – “Beyond” from Bridges leads with a debut at #38. It’s the first Hot AC single off his latest release Good Thing, though “Bad Bad News”, which was released a few weeks before “Beyond”, is now in the top five on the Triple A chart. (Look for “Beyond” to enter the lower rungs of the Hot AC chart tomorrow.) One spot lower is future CanCon smash “Love Me” by Blakk, which is already earning moderate airplay on a handful of stations on the Hot AC panel up north. The singer and songwriter was born in Canada, but currently calls Germany home. Lastly, at #40, is another chart song from that colorful hitmaker herself, the third off her Beautiful Trauma album. It’s the follow-up to the title cut, a recent #2 single on my list, which is now at #37 in its 24th week in the countdown.

Chart Notes:

  • Singer and songwriter (and recent Broadway performer) Jason Mraz scores his twelfth top 40 hit on my personal chart with “Have It All”, entering at #37. It’s the first single from his forthcoming album, due later this year. Of those dozen appearances since 2003, a pair of singles have reached the top: 2003’s “The Remedy (I Won’t Worry)”, which spent seven weeks there, and 2008’s “I’m Yours”, which held for a week. “Have” is Mraz’s first track to make my chart in nearly four years: “Love Someone” peaked at #32 in August of 2014. The only other debut this week, breaking in at #39, comes from California trio Ocean Park Standoff with “If You Were Mine”, their second top 40 song. Two versions of the track have been serviced to stations: one by the band itself and another featuring rapper Lil Yachty. Watch out for it at the Hot AC format in two weeks.

Chart Notes:

  • Big congrats to English singer and songwriter George Ezra on his very first #1 song on my chart, “Paradise”, which rises one spot after three weeks in the runner-up position. It’s the second single from his Staying At Tamara’s album, and it’s found its own pop paradise in countries like Austria, Scotland and the United Kingdom, where it’s cracked the top five, peaking at #1 in the second territory. The lead single from the album, “Don’t Matter Now”, spent two weeks at #2 on my survey last year. Over on the U.S. radio charts, “Paradise” makes the top 50 on the Hot AC chart, while still rising through the top 15 on the Triple A list. Entering at #34 and #39 on the chart, the new single by Ariana Grande (“No Tears Left To Cry”) and a collaboration by Liam Payne and J Balvin (“Familiar”), who all happen to be labelmates, look to climb speedily during their respective runs this spring and summer. Grande’s release has a simultaneous impact at the Hot AC and Top 40 formats this week, though the Payne and Balvin single has to wait another week before it goes for adds at the latter format.
