  • There’s a duo at #1 on my personal chart this week… except it’s not Silk Sonic, who have been at the top spot for the last three weeks. Climbing from 2-1 on the countdown, “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” is the first song to reach the top of my list for both Elle King and Miranda Lambert. The tune heads for adds at Country radio in three weeks, while it continues its ascent towards the top 20 at Hot AC radio. From the album Sour, this week’s Biggest Mover is “Good 4 U”, soaring from 38-28 for Olivia Rodrigo. Four tracks are new to the top 40 this time around, with several former #1 acts among them. Coming in at #33, a new single from Bleachers called “Stop Making This Hurt” claims the Highest Debut of the bunch. Jack Antonoff has five chart-toppers to his credit: three as a member of fun. and two leading Bleachers. Duran Duran is visible at #36 with “Invisible”, the lead single from their upcoming 15th studio album. It’s been six years since the group last appeared at the summit with the Janelle Monáe and Nile Rodgers-assisted “Pressure Off”, which spent five weeks there. In at #38 this week, Anne-Marie and Niall Horan duet on “Our Song”, which impacts at the Hot AC format this coming Monday. Finally, TikTok star and singer Bella Poarch is in at #40 with her very first release: “Build A Bitch”, which is coming off a viral music video and plenty of social media buzz.

The song is currently in the top ten at five different radio formats, though a sixth is on the way soon. After checking in at #35 on last week’s chart, Billie Eilish jumps to #23 with “Your Power”, which takes the Biggest Mover honors. Speaking of power, Coldplay has a really powerful start at #24 with “Higher Power”, this week’s Highest Debut of the four in the countdown. P!nk also has a fairly high debut at #31 with “All I Know So Far”, a new song and the title cut from the soundtrack to her upcoming documentary, which is due on Amazon in two weeks. Debuting at #38, the Barenaked Ladies return to the chart with “Flip”, which marks their first time in the region since the summer of 2013. Finally, OneRepublic is also back and entering at #40 with “Run”.

Chart Notes:

  • Passenger spends a second week at #1 on my personal chart with “Sword From The Stone”, as songs by Silk Sonic (#2) and Dua Lipa (#3) keep knocking at the door to the top. We’ll see if it opens up by next weekend. In a slow week for notable movers, Mimi Webb takes the Biggest Mover title, climbing from 37-31 with “Good Without”. Regard, Troye Sivan and Tate McRae earn this week’s Highest Debut with “You”, which comes in at #38. The collaboration is finding good support at both Dance and Top 40 radio, making it an early contender for the Song Of The Summer. Ben Platt also debuts at #39 with “Imagine”, a single which impacts at Hot AC radio on Monday. This is his second top 40 entry on my chart to date.
