Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut belongs to Train and “Play That Song”, their 23rd song (24th for lead singer Pat Monahan) to reach my chart since 1999. It enters at #36. “Play” is the leadoff single from A Girl, A Bottle, A Boat., due in January. The hit interpolates the melody from “Heart And Soul”, a piano classic that was last a national top 40 track in 1961. Two versions of it ranked on the Billboard Hot 100 then, one by The Cleftones (#18, June) and one by Jan & Dean (#25, July.)
  • The second member of One Direction gone solo is now in my top 40. First, there was ZAYN, and now, Niall Horan hits the chart with “This Town”, new at #37. Horan went to #1 twice as a member of the band. The single was co-written with the talented Jamie Scott, who has four chart-toppers to his credit: two solo, and two with Graffiti6. (This is a different “This Town” than the one O.A.R. hit #6 with in 2009.)
  • In at #39 is the third top 40 entry for BANNERS, the musician and singer born in Liverpool. “Into The Storm” is on the air in Canada, where it’s currently climbing the Alternative radio chart. As for the U.S., well, there’s been no radio push yet. His previous two singles made my top ten: “Shine A Light” (#4) and “Start A Riot” (#7).
  • Finally, at #40, is the third chart hit for the quartet DNCE. “Body Moves” is included on their self-titled set, due November 18. “Cake By The Ocean” (#4) and “Toothbrush” (#6) also appear on the tracklisting. Will they make it three in a row?

Chart Notes:

  • In 2003, a then-new singer from Canada made his debut on my chart with a cover of “How Can You Mend A Broken Heart?” by The Bee Gees. His version hit #21 that October, and also reached the top 20 on the AC chart around that time. 13 years later, Michael Bublé has his fifth chart-topper on Adam’s Top 40, as “Nobody But Me” leaps from 5-1. Overall, this marks his 16th career week at #1 on my chart.
  • At #39, Canadian group The Strumbellas have this week’s Highest Debut with “We Don’t Know”. It’s their second time on my chart; earlier this year, they got as high as #2 with “Spirits”. The song is already a hit on Alternative radio in Canada, and it’s mere inches away from becoming a top 40 single on the U.S.-based format chart. Both tracks are from the album Hope.
  • Just below them is English newcomer Calum Scott, debuting at #40 with his remake of Robyn‘s “Dancing On My Own”. It recently reached the top five in countries like Australia, Ireland, Scotland and the United Kingdom. The song impacts at Hot AC radio on October 3. Scott’s a former contestant from Britain’s Got Talent.
  • With new singles from DNCE and Train, among other acts, coming on Friday, expect a very active chart next Sunday. Look out for In The Mix entries from BANNERS and Nathan Sykes to debut soon as well.

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut is the 12th top 40 hit for The Fray, the Denver act that first made my chart with “Over My Head (Cable Car)” in December 2005. The quartet strikes again with “Singing Low”, entering at #38. It’s the first release from the hits collection Through The Years: The Best Of The Fray, out November 4. Of those 12 chart tracks, eight made the top ten, and two reached #1: 2006’s “How To Save A Life” and 2009’s “You Found Me”.
  • This week marks the return of singer Emeli Sandé to my top 40, debuting at #39 with her third charting single, “Hurts”. A new album from the 29-year-old star, Long Live The Angels, is due on November 11. Her first chart song, “Next To Me”, hit #8 for three weeks in the summer of 2012. In the fall of 2013, “My Kind Of Love” climbed to #7.
  • Finally, at #40, Los Angeles sextet Fitz & The Tantrums roll up to the countdown with “Roll Up”. It follows “HandClap”, which spent two weeks at #3 in May. Both singles are taken from their self-titled third album. On Tuesday, “Roll” impacts at Alternative radio. Good luck, guys!

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut is by one of this year’s top newcomers to my chart. In fact, later this year, he’ll probably be in the running for my #1 song of 2016. Of course, that’s with “Fire”, a former #1 that stands at #36 in its 29th week. Singer Barns Courtney lands his second hit here with “Glitter & Gold”, new at #37. It goes for adds at the Triple A format on the 19th. It remains to be seen whether or not “Fire” can climb any higher than the top 20 at Alternative radio, but I hope it does.
  • In 1998, the Texas band Fastball took a song called “Fire Escape” to #12 on the Alternative chart and #25 on the CHR/Top 40 chart. It was the follow-up to “The Way”, a big multi-format hit earlier that year. 18 years later, a different song with the same title is hitting the airwaves, performed by Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness. It enters at #38 on my chart. A total of seven songs by McMahon (four under Jack’s Mannequin) have reached my top 40.
  • He’ll be 65 in a few weeks, and he’s still making great tunes. The legendary Sting returns to my chart with his first entry in a decade, “I Can’t Stop Thinking About You”, entering at #40. It’s the leadoff single from 57th & 9th, due November 11. In the spring of 2006, he collaborated with Sheryl Crow on “Always On Your Side”, which peaked at #32.

Chart Notes:

  • The week’s Highest Debut is the second top 40 entry for Jordan Fisher. “Lookin’ Like That” is new at #37. “All About Us”, his recent #1 song, is still in the top 20. Both tracks can be found on his self-titled EP, which came out last month. His latest single goes for adds at CHR/Top 40 radio on September 27, though several key stations are playing it early.
  • At #38 is the week’s other debut, “Still Falling For You” by singer Ellie Goulding. You’ll be hearing it in the movie Bridget Jones’s Baby, due later this month. This is the second soundtrack hit for her on my chart. Last year, “Love Me Like You Do” from Fifty Shades Of Grey spent four weeks at #1.
  • Next week, we’ll see if Barns Courtney, Matt Simons, The Score or The Strumbellas can achieve their second entry on my top 40, but several newcomers are on the rise as well. Check back on Sunday to see what happens!

Chart Notes:

  • After five big weeks at the top, “Can’t Stop The Feeling” from Justin Timberlake is forced down to #2 by a newcomer. At 22 years old, Jordan Fisher has a big future ahead in worlds of film and music. His debut single, “All About Us”, climbs 2-1 in its 11th week on the chart. It’s also in the top 30 at pop radio, where it scored a sizable amount of adds upon impact. It’s been nearly 25 years since his label, Hollywood Records, scored their first top 40 hit at the format: “In My Dreams” by The Party, a #16 hit from late 1991 and early 1992.
  • Four strong debuts make the chart this week, but the situation is looking a little bit different than what I was expecting. The new entries are led by Britney Spears, making her splashy return with “Make Me…”, coming in at #35. The single reached #1 on iTunes shortly after its release, and is currently at #2. It features rapper G-Eazy. This song’s release comes as several clips from its music video leaked a few days ago. Will it become Spears’s first top ten on my chart in five years? Stay tuned!
  • Nathan Sykes has ranked in my top 40 on his own and with his bandmates in The Wanted. This week, it’s another of his solo singles that makes the countdown. “Give It Up” is new at #38. The track impacts at CHR/Top 40 radio this Tuesday. In the history of the pop radio chart, two other singles with that exact title, but a different song, have hit the top 40. In 1984, it was KC (without the Sunshine Band) that got to #19 with it. Then, in 1992, the title reached #17 for Wilson Phillips.
  • Further down the chart, Katy Perry is new at #39 with “Rise”. If you haven’t heard it on the radio yet, chances are that you will soon, as it’ll be featured in NBC’s coverage of the Rio Olympics in August. However, it’s important to note that “Rise” is not the lead single from her forthcoming album. As of this post, it’s #1 at iTunes in over two dozen countries.
  • One spot below Perry is “Capsize” from FRENSHIP and Emily Warren, two newcomers to my top 40, which comes in at #40. It’s been a huge streaming song at Spotify, totaling nearly 69 million plays thus far. The California duo was featured in my 16 For ’16 list, spotlighting emerging acts, in December of last year.

Chart Notes:

  • The battle between Bastille and Passenger doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon. The former’s “Good Grief” climbs 8-6 this week, while the latter’s “Somebody’s Love” leapfrogs over it to #5, up four places. Both songs have been in the top 40 for just four weeks, an incredible achievement for both acts. Who’s going to end up with this summer’s biggest hit? We may find out in the next few weeks. “Good” sits below the top ten on Alternative and Triple A radio, while “Somebody’s” is in the top 50 at the latter format.
  • This week’s Biggest Mover belongs to Wrabel, up 23-15 with “11 Blocks”. It’s his fifth week in the countdown, and it’ll likely be just a couple more weeks until the song hits the top ten. Also, for you block enthusiasts out there, this top 40 entry is the first “block” single to rank on my chart since 2002’s “Jenny From The Block” by Jennifer Lopez. Believe it or not, that hit was released on the same label as “11 Blocks”. The more you know…
  • The only debut this week is a song that’s already been a big international hit, and it’s about to break the top 50 on pop radio here in the States. “This Girl” is by French DJ Kungs and Australian trio Cookin’ On 3 Burners, entering at #40. It’s the first time on my personal chart for both acts.
  • Next week, we could see Mary Lambert back in the top 40 for the first time since her top ten “Secrets”, or newcomers like Adam Friedman, Hailey Knox and Weathers might make their chart debut. Regardless of what happens, I’ll cover it. I hope to see you back next Sunday!
