Kesha is coming off her biggest hit to date on my chart, “Praying”, which spent four weeks at #1 and falls to #33 this week. The latter group’s “Wait” (#40) marks the fourth single from the deluxe edition of Red Pill Blues and the follow-up to the SZA-assisted “What Lovers Do”, which peaked at #6 and currently sits at #14. They have six #1 songs to date, their last coming in 2012.
  • Watch out for the Top 100 of 2017 starting tomorrow! It’s going to be a fun one. Stay tuned for lots of great music…

Earlier this year, Arthur had a #10 single on my chart with the international hit “Say You Won’t Let Go”, while Tomlinson’s “Back To You” (a collaboration with Bebe Rexha and Digital Farm Animals) stumbled its way to #21. Arthur’s new track impacts at the Hot AC format on January 15; Tomlinson’s song is already making solid gains in the top 60 at the Top 40 format.
  • Just one week until my Top 100 of 2017! So many great singles from fantastic artists and bands like Adele, Lorde, MUNA and Taylor Swift are all in the mix, and a whole lot more. Check back from December 18-22 for the final results!

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut is the third top 40 single for the 26-year-old out of Aylesbury, England named Barns Courtney. “Golden Dandelions” blooms at #39. Courtney had my #3 song of 2016 with “Fire”, which spent four weeks at #1. That single also reached the top five at Triple A radio and top 20 on the Alternative chart. He hasn’t released a full-length album yet. (An EP of his, The Dull Drums, was out earlier this year.)
  • The week’s other new entry is by another English singer and songwriter, 23-year-old Hertford-born George Ezra. He heads onto the survey at #40 with “Don’t Matter Now”. Of course, Ezra’s album Wanted On Voyage, released three years ago, gave him a handful of chart hits in Europe, including “Blame It On Me” and “Budapest”. Ezra’s second set is due later this year.

Chart Notes:

  • Congrats to Canadian singer/songwriter Shawn Mendes on his first #1 on my chart, “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back”. It climbs 2-1 in its ninth week in the countdown. Mendes went as high as #2 last year with “Treat You Better”. Another treasure from Canada, Carly Rae Jepsen, lands this week’s Highest Debut with “Cut To The Feeling”. The cut from Leap! hops in at #36. It’s Jepsen’s seventh time on my chart since 2012. Additionally, Irish duo Picture This lands in the picture at #39 with their first top 40 hit, “Never Change”.
  • Right now, as this post goes public, I’m likely dancing the night away at a family wedding. Needless to say, full commentary is going to be back next weekend.

Chart Notes:

  • After five huge weeks at #2, Harry Styles makes it to the top of my personal chart with “Sign Of The Times”, the first single from his self-titled solo album. Together with Niall Horan and ZAYN, pop group One Direction becomes the first act to send three of its members to #1 on my chart in solo projects. By the way, the record for the most weeks spent at #2 prior to a run at #1 on my personal chart is seven, which is held by two tracks: Darren Hayes‘s “Darkness” (2004-2005, two weeks at #1) and Natasha Bedingfield‘s “Unwritten” (2005-2006, ten nonconsecutive weeks at #1).
  • Earlier this year, singer and songwriter Julia Michaels had no “Issues” squeezing into the #1 spot on my top 40 for a week. Now, she’s looking to repeat that feat with her follow-up single, “Uh Huh”, which is the week’s Highest Debut at #37. Believe it or not, this is the third top 40 song called “Uh Huh” to make my chart in the past 15 years, following hits from B2K (2002) and ROMANS (2015). (The latter entry spent two weeks at #1 that August.) Michaels’s original song goes for adds at Top 40 radio on June 20.
  • As for this week’s other two debuts, both songs are impacting at the Hot AC format later this month. Launching on June 19 is “Give Love” by Andy Grammer, which enters at #39. The 33-year-old scores his eighth top 40 hit on my chart, with five of those entries becoming top ten hits. A notch lower, and going for adds a week later, is “Can I Be Him” by James Arthur. He hit my top ten earlier this year with “Say You Won’t Let Go”, which reached #1 at the format recently.

Chart Notes:

  • All three of this week’s new entries impact at the Alternative radio format in the next few weeks, but one’s had a head start at the Triple A format, where it was last week’s Most Added title. That song is “Automatic” by Mondo Cozmo, new at #38 this week. Singer and songwriter Josh Ostrander topped the latter format’s chart in January with previous single “Shine”, a track that also reached the top 15 at the former format in March. An album, Plastic Soul, is due in July.
  • While Lorde‘s “Green Light” remains in my top ten this week, her follow-up lands in the countdown at #39. “Perfect Places” can also be found on her forthcoming album, Melodrama, due on June 16. If you attended the Governors Ball Music Festival this weekend, you saw her perform it live with co-writer Jack Antonoff, who also co-wrote “Green” and claims my #1 spot for the fifth week in a row as Bleachers with “Don’t Take The Money”.
  • Finally, at #40, is Arcade Fire‘s “Everything Now”. It’s the title track from the Montreal group’s upcoming set, due July 28. They bubbled under my top 40 in the spring of 2007 with “Keep The Car Running”, which was a minor hit on the Alternative chart. Their Infinite Content Tour hits North America in September.

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut is the fourth top 40 single from Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness, “So Close”. It comes in at #37 on the countdown. “Close” is the follow-up to “Fire Escape”, which reached #4 for two weeks in November of 2016. Both songs can be found on his album Zombies On Broadway, which was released earlier this year. Of course, McMahon has another four top 40 entries on my chart from his days as the leader of Jack’s Mannequin, so he has a little history here. It impacts at Alternative radio on June 6.
  • The only newcomer to make my chart this week is 16-year-old English singer Jasmine Thompson. In the summer of 2015, she just missed the top 50 on the Top 40 chart with DJ/producer Felix Jaehn‘s remix of one of her popular remakes, “Ain’t Nobody (Loves Me Better)”. (The original, of course, was done by Rufus and Chaka Khan.) Thompson debuts at #38 with an original song, “Old Friends”, from her Wonderland EP. Watch out for it at the Hot AC format this summer!
  • Lastly, at #39, is a singer who returns to my chart after a six-year absence. 28-year-old Chord Overstreet first reached the countdown in 2011 with the cast of Glee on “Loser Like Me”, which held at #18 for two weeks. It also gained a bit of airplay at the Hot AC (#33) and Top 40 (#42) formats. Now, Overstreet is back with “Hold On”, which jumps in at #39. It heads to Top 40 radio, via a remix by Deepend, on June 6.
