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.

Chart Notes:

  • For its fourth and potentially final week at the top, “Happier” by Marshmello x Bastille continues to lead the way on on my personal chart. The collaboration becomes Bastille’s longest-running #1 title on my list, surpassing “Good Grief” and its three-week run in 2016. 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. Joining the new version of “A Million Dreams” by P!nk (up 39-37 in its second week on) is “Rewrite The Stars” by James Arthur and Anne-Marie. It heads to the Hot AC format on Monday and is already charting in several countries.

Chart Notes:

  • Due to the loss of my grandfather this week, a fuller commentary will return for next week. In the meantime, “Happier” remains at #1 for the third week for Marshmello x Bastille, while P!nk debuts at #39 with “A Million Dreams”, the first cut to land on my chart from The Greatest Showman: Reimagined. The song is closing in on the top 50 at Hot AC radio, though it’s only being played on a handful stations at the moment. (It hasn’t been officially serviced to the format as of yet.) Look for that release to hit the top five on the Billboard 200 list next week.
