Chart Notes:

  • As A Great Big World holds at #1 for the second week with “Younger”, a very solid four debuts enter the top 40, led by “Born To Be Yours” from Kygo and Imagine Dragons at #37. The collaboration is starting to see some nice support at both Hot AC and Top 40 radio, despite the fact that Kygo’s song with Miguel, “Remind Me To Forget”, is garnering iHeartMedia-sponsored airplay (via their On The Verge integration program) at the latter format. A notch lower, entering at #38, Sheryl Crow is back with her first entry in just over 11 years with “Wouldn’t Want To Be Like You”, her first independently-released single to hit my chart. It features Annie Clark, who usually records as St. Vincent. Occupying the #39 and #40 spots, the new radio releases from Lissie and the Plain White T’s also join the pop party, the former with “Castles” and the latter with “Your Body”. Lissie replaces herself in the top 40 this week, as “Best Days” (which reached #4) falls out, while the Plain White T’s are charting here for the first time in nearly five years. (No, it’s not a hot Christina Aguilera cover.)

Chart Notes:

  • With Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa spending a third consecutive week at #1 with “One Kiss”, and the new hits from Maroon 5 (“Girls Like You”) and Passenger (“Hell Or High Water”) tying for the Biggest Mover, both up ten places, we travel down to the bottom of the top 40 to dig for treasure among this week’s debuts. The highest of three, landing at #35, is the newest single for singer and songwriter George Ezra. “Shotgun” is third chart song from the album Staying At Tamara’s. It’s the follow-up to “Paradise”, a former #1 hit that falls four spots to #9 this week. Bowing at #39, “Loving Is Easy” marks the first top 40 entry for Rex Orange County, an English singer and songwriter, and Benny Sings, a Dutch musician. Given all of the success it’s had on various streaming services thus far, “Loving” is sure to pick up some added attention when it impacts at the Alternative format on Tuesday. Lastly, at #40, Lenny Kravitz scores his first top 40 entry on my survey since the fall of 2011 with “Low”, the first radio single off his forthcoming album Raise Vibration. The 54-year-old has narrowly missed the top ten with his past few chart songs here, including “Lady” (#13, 2005), “I’ll Be Waiting” (#14, 2007-08) and, most recently, “Stand” (#13, 2011).

Chart Notes:

  • As Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa spend a second big week at #1 with “One Kiss”, while the Backstreet Boys climb up 24-12 with the week’s Biggest Mover, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”, another three songs break into top 40. Leading the, Maroon 5 is new at #37 with “Girls Like You”, the current #1 song on iTunes. A music video for the release, featuring a remix with Cardi B, was released a few days ago and includes top women in entertainment from the worlds of film, music, sports and television. Two notches lower, at #39, singer/songwriter Ben Rector launches with “Drive”. It’s the first radio single off his forthcoming set Magic, due June 22. Rector went to #5 on my chart in the spring of 2016 with “Brand New”, which also reached the top ten on the Hot AC radio list. Finally, at #40, Canada’s Scott Helman is searching for his fourth consecutive top ten on my survey with “Ripple Effect”. You can find it on his album Hôtel de Ville, which also includes the singles “Kinda Complicated” (#4) and “PDA” (#7).

Chart Notes:

  • On this Memorial Day Weekend, there’s a new song at the top from Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa! “One Kiss” marks the first collaboration for the two soloists, soaring from 3-1 this week. It’s Harris’s first #1 on my chart and Lipa’s second, following her smash “New Rules”, which spent two weeks at the top in November. The current songs from A Great Big World (“Younger”) and the Backstreet Boys (“Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”) share the title of Biggest Mover this week, moving up a massive 12 notches to #12 and #24, respectively. (Expect both chart hits to vie for my own Song Of The Summer in the next few weeks.) A pair of new tracks enter the top 40 this week, led by Passenger‘s “Hell Or High Water” at #36. The single, which was recently serviced to the Triple A format, is the ninth chart entry for the singer, five of which have hit #1. Could this become his sixth? It may have a chance later this summer, especially as his upcoming set Runaway approaches. Two spots lower, at #38, the latest American Idol champ makes her chart debut: 20-year-old Maddie Poppe with “Going Going Gone”. It’s the third coronation song from the music competition show to make my survey since the start of the decade, following a pair of tracks from Phillip Phillips (“Home”, 2012) and Nick Fradiani (“Beautiful Life”, 2015).

Chart Notes:

  • Is it 1999 or 2018? That is the question. This week’s two splashy debuts come from none other than the Backstreet Boys and Christina Aguilera, who haven’t appeared on my survey together since the summer of 2001. Just under 17 years ago, in July of that year, “More Than That” from the Boys and “Lady Marmalade” from Aguilera and her Moulin Rouge pals, both #1 songs on my chart, last ranked in the top 40 simultaneously. (Though that was the last time the two acts appeared on my survey with individual titles, both sang on the 2001 charity track “What’s Going On?”, credited to the All-Star Tribute, while Carter from the Backstreet Boys and Aguilera were in the top 40 during the fall of 2002 with “Help Me” and “Dirrty”, respectively. Leaping ahead to the latest chart, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” (#36) from the five-man group and “Fall In Line” (#40) from Aguilera and duet partner Demi Lovato will be going strong on my chart for some time. Paging *NSYNC and Britney Spears, come back to the pop world…

Chart Notes:

  • Congrats to Canadian singer and songwriter Shawn Mendes, who scores his second #1 on my chart with “In My Blood”. The hit, up 2-1 this week, leads Mendes’s forthcoming self-titled album, due May 25. He previously led my chart for three weeks in June and July of last year with “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back”. The debut action is also hot this week, with four entries on the countdown, led by A Great Big World‘s “Younger” at #32. The duo has two #1 songs to date, and “Younger” is now their seventh top 40 hit since 2013. Following that, Bastille‘s “Quarter Past Midnight” jumps in at #35, their eighth top 40 entry to date. In January, the group reached #8 with “World Gone Mad”, which was featured on the soundtrack to Netflix’s Bright. For singer and songwriter John Mayer, it’s a new entry for #38 with “New Light”. The single marks Mayer’s first new material to not be released by longtime label home Columbia since 2001, though it is distributed by Sony’s independent arm The Orchard (via label Snack Money.) Lastly, at #40, is the Dave Matthews Band with “Samurai Cop (Oh Joy Begin)”, the first single off their upcoming album Come Tomorrow. It’s their first studio set in nearly six years, which launched the singles “Mercy” (#19) and “If Only” (#30) into the top 40 in 2012.
