Chart Notes:

  • Continuing on cruise control on the hit highway, singer and songwriter George Ezra remains at #1 on my personal chart for the fifth week with “Shotgun”. It’s his eighth total week at the top so far this year. A pair of new top five songs by Imagine Dragons (“Natural”, up 6-4) and Dean Lewis (“Be Alright”, up 10-5) should compete for #1 in the coming weeks. Climbing six notches to score this week’s Biggest Movers, it’s the Hot AC flashback circa 2009 that you never knew you needed: “Memorized” is up 28-22 for Mat Kearney & RAC, while the Dave Matthews Band is up 32-26 with “Again And Again”. Further down, there are three debuts in the mix this week, led by the fourth top 40 entry for Lukas Graham; “Love Someone” bows at #38. It’s the first single to be released from 3 (The Purple Album), due October 26. Shawn Mendes is back in the top 40 at #39 with “Lost In Japan”. It follows “In My Blood”, which spent two weeks at #1 earlier this year. The future hit goes to Hot AC and Top 40 radio next month. Lastly, at #40, it’s the return of Mike Posner and his latest single, “Song About You”. Posner’s biggest entry to date on my chart is “Cooler Than Me”, which peaked at #4 in 2010, though he returned to the top ten in 2016 with “I Took A Pill In Ibiza”, peaking at #8.

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut is the eighth top 40 hit for singer and songwriter Mat Kearney. “Kings & Queens” enters at #39 on the countdown, which you can currently find on a self-titled EP, but will also be included on his forthcoming album titled CRAZYTALK. Of his eight chart entries, two have gone as high as #2: 2007’s “Nothing Left To Lose” and 2015’s “Heartbeat”. The only other entry this week, coming in at #40, is Lissie‘s “Best Days”. It’s her first time on my personal chart. Nearly ten years ago, in February 2008, an unrelated song with the same title spent three weeks at the top for Graham Colton, which remains his biggest release to date on my top 40.
