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.
