Chart Notes:

  • Nashville newcomer Marc Scibilia first released “How Bad We Need Each Other” in 2012, and three years later, the single is finally headed to Hot AC radio. He lands this week’s Highest Debut on my top 40 at #34. The track can currently be found on an EP entitled Out Of Style, but it’s only available on Spotify. However, his forthcoming album of the same name, due at both purchase and streaming platforms, is out on October 30.
  • We say goodbye to Rob Thomas‘s “Trust You” this week, a song that just missed cracking the top ten, but his next single is taking its place in the countdown. “Hold On Forever” is the second release from The Great Unknown and bows in at #38. In a few weeks, Thomas will be back on the road to play a number of U.S. dates in both the South and the Midwest.
  • It just premiered a few days ago, and now, the latest single from Ellie Goulding makes its way onto my survey at #39. “On My Mind” marks the leadoff single from her forthcoming album, Delirium, due on November 6. Earlier this year, the singer landed at #1 on my chart for four weeks with “Love Me Like You Do”. Can she make it two in a row? We’ll see.

Chart Notes:

  • Two new songs make the top ten this week, including the second top ten in a row for the band Causes. They climb 12-9 with with “Walk On Water”, the same title that hit the top 40 in the past for Neil Diamond (#17, 1972) and Eddie Money (#9, 1988) on the Hot 100. We’ll see if the quartet’s splashy single can break the American charts soon. Also up a notch this week is the first hit for the duo Lions Head, climbing 11-10 with “Begging”. They’ve been roaring up a storm in concert overseas as of late.
  • 32-year-old Richard Andrew calls himself Outasight, but he’s in plain sight on my top 40 with this week’s Highest Debut at #39. “The Wild Life” is the first radio single from his forthcoming effort, Big Trouble, due on October 23. In 2011, “Tonight Is The Night”, his debut single, was featured in a Pepsi commercial. It went to #14 on the pop radio survey in March 2012. It was followed by “Now Or Never”, which peaked at #25 four months later. Neither song broke my chart.
  • A notch below that is this week’s only other debut, which comes from Swedish newcomer Paul Rey. “Good As Hell” grabs a good hold on the countdown, entering at #40. The musician, born Pauli Jokela, is originally from the city of Lund. That city is also the hometown of DJ/producer Axwell (from Axwell Λ Ingrosso) and recent Eurovision winner Måns Zelmerlöw.
