Chart Notes:

  • Congrats to Troye Sivan on his second #1 on my chart, “My My My!”, advancing from 3-1 this week. Sivan previously got to the top with 2016’s “Youth”, which had a three-week run that March. His sophomore album is due later this year. A big jump for Niall Horan‘s “On The Loose” puts him one spot away from his fourth solo top ten entry in a row. Moving from 20-11, it easily takes the title of this week’s Biggest Mover. Three new entries make this week’s top 40, with Taylor Swift‘s “Delicate” coming in the highest at #38. It’s the fourth chart single from her current album, reputation. Just below Swift’s latest release in the countdown, “We Were Here” (#39) by Lights and “Over My Head” (#40) by Echosmith also make their debuts. Will any of the three reach the top this spring? You’ll have to come back and see in the coming weeks.

Chart Notes:

  • Singer Janelle Monáe sat atop my chart for two weeks in the spring of 2012 as the featured artist on fun.‘s first of three #1 hits, “We Are Young”. Well, that trio may be long gone from the charts, but Monáe is back in a big way with her single “Make Me Feel”, coming in as the highest debut at #38. Last Thursday, the song was released as one of two cuts from her upcoming album Dirty Computer, due April 27. Look out for “Feel” at several radio formats in the coming weeks, including the Top 40 airwaves, where you may also find this week’s second debut. New at #40, “Not A Love Song” marks the debut of a newcomer named Bülow, a teenage singer who currently resides in The Netherlands, but grew up in several countries like Canada and Germany. Her song impacts at the Top 40 format on Tuesday; check back to see if it makes the Add Lib report that evening.

One notch lower, the first top 40 hit for Hayley Kiyoko comes in at #39. “Curious” is the first radio single off the upcoming set Expectations, due March 30.

Chart Notes:

  • New entries from Why Don’t We and Jack & Jack roll into the countdown, which means I could actually be a 14-year-old female in a 27-year-old male’s body. Who knows? Anyways, “Trust Fund Baby” from the pop quintet lands at #37, giving the boys their second top 40 hit on my chart. Their first, “Something Different”, got as high as #23 last fall. One additional song, “These Girls”, bubbled under the survey a couple of months ago. “Trust” was co-written by superstar Ed Sheeran. One spot lower, at #38, “Beg” becomes the first top 40 hit for the duo Jack & Jack. Jack Johnson and Gilinsky have worked together on both comedy bits and music for video platforms like Vine and YouTube for several years now, having accumulated nearly 165 million views on a personal account at the latter website. A new acoustic version of the release features labelmate Olivia O’Brien.

Chart Notes:

  • As Kesha and The Dap-Kings Horns continue to run the football to #1 on my chart, two new entries enter the game with touchdowns on the brain. (Well, maybe not, but the Super Bowl is coming up in a few hours.) The higher of the two, blasting in at #37, is the fourth solo top 40 single for One Direction‘s Niall Horan. “On The Loose” heads to the Top 40 format in just over two weeks. Horan’s previous three entries, “This Town”, “Slow Hands” and “Too Much To Ask”, all reached #1, and “Slow” topped my yearly survey for 2017. A little lower, at #39, is a future nominee for the oddest collaboration of 2018. The song is “Don’t Make Me Wait”, and it’s done by 66-year-old Sting and 49-year-old Shaggy. Just over a year ago, Sting went to a high of #4 on my chart with “I Can’t Stop Thinking About You”, establishing he and Elton John as the only performers to reach my top five while over the age of 65. “Don’t” also marks Shaggy’s first single to land in my top 40 since “Strength Of A Woman”, which last appeared on the chart in December 2002. Look out for the odd couple’s collaborative album, 44/876, on April 20. I’m sure it’ll be, uh, smokin’.

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut is the eighth top 40 hit for singer and songwriter Mat Kearney. “Kings & Queens” enters at #39 on the countdown, which you can currently find on a self-titled EP, but will also be included on his forthcoming album titled CRAZYTALK. Of his eight chart entries, two have gone as high as #2: 2007’s “Nothing Left To Lose” and 2015’s “Heartbeat”. The only other entry this week, coming in at #40, is Lissie‘s “Best Days”. It’s her first time on my personal chart. Nearly ten years ago, in February 2008, an unrelated song with the same title spent three weeks at the top for Graham Colton, which remains his biggest release to date on my top 40.
