All three debuts are also done by women: Dua Lipa at #34 with “We’re Good”, Daya at #38 with “Bad Girl” and Serena Ryder at #40 with “Better Now”.

If the song reaches the summit next week, it’ll become her second #1 single on my list. Four tracks are tied for the Biggest Mover of the week, all up six positions. For debuts, it’s one word titles only: Duncan Laurence bows at #37 with “Arcade”, while Sabrina Carpenter‘s “Skin” checks in at #39.

There are three solid debuts in the top 40 this week: Dayglow‘s “Close To You” is the top new entry at #36, followed just behind by Brynn Elliott‘s “Tell Me I’m Pretty” at #37 and the antithetical “I’m Not Pretty” by Jessia at #40.

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.

Chart Notes:

  • Following the holidays, Harry Styles stays at #1 for a third week on my personal chart with “Golden”, while Taylor Swift leaps from 22-13 with “Willow”, the Biggest Mover for the second week in a row. Ed Sheeran makes his return to my chart at #27 with his surprise song “Afterglow”, which was released on Monday morning with little advance notice. Sheeran has indicated via social media that the track is not the first official single from his fifth studio album, but something that he still wanted to put out. Further down the list, the aforementioned Swift is in at #36 with another single from her Evermore album: the HAIM-assisted “No Body, No Crime”. The cut impacts at the Country radio format in two weeks.
