Chart Notes:

  • Powering up eight notches to #17 is Walk The Moon‘s “Work This Body”, their third hit in a row from the album Talking Is Hard. A very fun music video just premiered for it, featuring superheroes and super food fights. Also up this week is that hot single from Zayn, “Pillowtalk”, jumping 28-20. It’s also closing in on the top 20 on the pop radio listing and the top 40 at the Rhythmic format, where it’s currently benefiting from its On The Verge status at iHeartMedia stations. Finally, That Poppy is up eight (40-32) with “Lowlife”. Her first EP, Bubblebath, was released on Friday.
  • Well, it took a while, but 46-year-old Gwen Stefani is about to put out her first solo album in just under ten years. This Is What The Truth Feels Like is set to be released on March 18. The second single from it, “Make Me Like You”, debuts at #36 this week, making it the Highest Debut. It’s the follow-up to “Used To Love You”, which recently peaked at #6. Look for the live music video for “Make” to premiere on the GRAMMY Awards telecast on Monday evening during a commercial break.
  • This week’s other new entry is by Tryon, a duo consisting of brothers Justin and Stephen Kirk. The Nashville boys crash in at #39 with “Somebody To Love Me”. The independent single impacts at CHR/Top 40 radio in two weeks, and though it’s a tough date at the moment, it’s already getting some play at Hits 1 and Radio Disney. The Kirks join a growing list of brother duos like Evan and Jaron, Hudson TaylorK-Ci & JoJo and The Madden Brothers to hit my chart since 1999.

Chart Notes:

  • Shawn Hook and Troye Sivan each grab their first top ten hits on my chart this week at #9 and #8, respectfully, as both stay in the hunt for #1 sometime next month. Just a little lower, Ben Rector (#13) and Ellie Goulding (#15) are both six notches closer to a top ten hit. For Rector, it would be his first. For Goulding, it would be her fourth. Both debuts last week and now tied for the Biggest Mover, One Direction and Zayn leap nine spots, the former to #30 and the latter to #28.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is by The 1975, coming in at #38 with “The Sound”. They now have two songs in the top 40; the former top ten, “Love Me”, is down to #35. Both cuts are taken from their upcoming sophomore album, I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It, which is due on February 26. A big title like that may just carry a big opening week globally as well.
  • Plenty of artists make poppy tunes, but only a few of them have poppy names. In the case of chart newcomer That Poppy, she seems to bridge the two together. She debuts at #40 with “Lowlife”. It’s featured on her EP Bubblebath, due on Friday. The singer, both Moriah Pereira and formerly credited as Moriah Poppy, grew up in Nashville.
