Swift’s second single from her late summer release lands at #35 to become the week’s Highest Debut: that’s “You Need To Calm Down”. The only other new tune in the top 40 comes from Ashley O Miley Cyrus with her latest Top 40 chart entry, a song called “Mother’s Daughter”, which ranks at #39.

Chart Notes:

  • As Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie‘s “ME!” holds at the top for a second week and Katy Perry‘s “Never Really Over” soars from 28-15 to get the Biggest Mover title, there are three new songs in the countdown, two by groups that have previously reached the top. The highest, landing at #34, is the first chart entry in just over five years for the English quartet Keane. “The Way I Feel” marks their 17th top 40 single since the fall of 2004 when they first entered with “Somewhere Only We Know”, which reached #7. The group’s “Silenced By The Night”, their sole chart-topper to date, spent four weeks at the summit in 2012. American acts X Ambassadors and OneRepublic also score their latest top 40 songs at #37 and #40, respectively, with “Hold You Down” and “Rescue Me”. Though the former act has made the top five without hitting the top, the latter’s been to #1 once: they spent three weeks there in December 2007 and January 2008 with the Timbaland-assisted “Apologize”.

Chart Notes:

  • Earning a record-breaking ninth #1 single on my personal chart, Taylor Swift‘s “ME!” (featuring Brendon Urie) rises from 2-1 this week. It’s the first track to be released from her forthcoming album, due sometime later this year. Urie also ranks at #1 for the second week in a row: “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” by his band Panic! At The Disco, last week’s chart-topper, drops to #3. Further down, Swift’s one-time rival Katy Perry earns this week’s Highest Debut at #28 with “Never Really Over”, which also scores a splashy top 30 debut on the Hot AC and Top 40 charts. Its entry marks Perry’s first song to appear in my top 40 this year, though her collaborations with Daddy Yankee and Zedd received solid airplay at several radio formats in the last few months. Also checking in with a notable debut at #32, “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” brings the legendary Elton John back to the top 40 with newcomer Taron Egerton, who portrays John in the new movie Rocketman. In the process, John, who is now 72, becomes one of the oldest performers to enter my list: he’s about six months younger than Rod Stewart was when his updated version of “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy” (with DNCE) debuted in September 2017. Finally, at #40, P!nk and Chris Stapleton make the top 40 with a hit off the former’s album Hurts 2B Human called “Love Me Anyway”. The song is receiving airplay from several stations on the Country radio panel.

Chart Notes:

  • After staying at #2, Panic! At The Disco‘s “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” finally sneaks into the #1 spot this week, with leader Brendon Urie also appearing as a featured performer on the runner-up title, Taylor Swift‘s “ME!”, climbing from #4. Urie joins singers such as Jamie Scott and Nate Ruess in having simultaneous top three entries as both a soloist and with a duo or group: in 2014, the former’s “My Hurricane” ranked in the region alongside Graffiti6‘s “The Bridge”, and a year prior, the latter’s featured spot on P!nk‘s “Just Give Me A Reason” joined fun.‘s track “Carry On” at the top. James Arthur‘s “Falling Like The Stars” earns this week’s Highest Debut at #39, his fifth top 40 single to date. The song recently replaced “From The Grave” as Arthur’s current single at Hot AC radio, which stalled out at the bottom of the top 50 a few weeks back. A newcomer named Christian Paul also climbs into the top 40 at #40 with “Strong”. It’s closing in on the top 50 at Top 40 radio, which will also mark his first chart appearance there.

Chart Notes:

  • Kacey Musgraves holds steady at #1 for the third week with “Rainbow”, but she’s facing some competition from Westlife‘s huge comeback: in addition to debuting at #38 with “Better Man”, they’re up from 4-2 with “Hello My Love”, their highest-charting entry on my list to date. On the move from 36-29, Noah Kahan takes the Biggest Mover title with “Mess”, his fourth top 40 single since 2017. Finally, this week’s Highest Debut, starting at #36, is a new soundtrack tune from the kelegendary artist herself, Kelly Clarkson. “Broken & Beautiful” is featured on the set from the animated movie UglyDolls, opening in May. Clarkson also voices one of the lead characters named Moxy. It’s the performer’s first soundtrack hit on my personal chart since 2004, when “Breakaway” (from The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement) peaked at #3.
