Chart Notes:

  • It looks like Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa‘s reign at the top of my personal chart is coming to a close, though they do manage to spend a fifth week there with “One Kiss”. Ben Rector‘s “Drive” (up 30-20) and George Ezra‘s “Shotgun” (up 26-16) had a great week, as the two songs tie for the Biggest Mover on the list, the latter taking the title for the second straight week. There’s also a new record established this week, as Paul McCartney, at 76 years old, becomes the oldest performer to enter my chart. “Come On To Me”, released as half of a double a-side single, debuts at #38. McCartney’s Egypt Station is due September 7. It’s joined by Kacey Musgraves‘s “High Horse” (#39) and Niall Horan & Maren Morris‘s “Seeing Blind” (#40) as this week’s top 40 entries. Horan is looking to score his fifth consecutive #1 song as a solo artist, all from the same album, which may set a new record if it occurs.

Chart Notes:

  • First-time collaborators Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa spend a fourth week at the top of my list with “One Kiss”, as the entire top five is bulleted and ready to fight for the top spot in the coming weeks. (Stay tuned to see who wins!) In the meantime, two songs debut on this week’s chart: the third top 40 single for the British trio Years & Years (“If You’re Over Me”) at #39 and a collaboration from British singer/songwriter MNEK and American actress/singer Hailee Steinfeld (“Colour”) at #40. Years & Years scored their biggest hit to date in April 2015, when “King” had a two-week run at #1. Neither of the soloists on the #40 song have charted here previously.

Chart Notes:

  • With Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa spending a third consecutive week at #1 with “One Kiss”, and the new hits from Maroon 5 (“Girls Like You”) and Passenger (“Hell Or High Water”) tying for the Biggest Mover, both up ten places, we travel down to the bottom of the top 40 to dig for treasure among this week’s debuts. The highest of three, landing at #35, is the newest single for singer and songwriter George Ezra. “Shotgun” is third chart song from the album Staying At Tamara’s. It’s the follow-up to “Paradise”, a former #1 hit that falls four spots to #9 this week. Bowing at #39, “Loving Is Easy” marks the first top 40 entry for Rex Orange County, an English singer and songwriter, and Benny Sings, a Dutch musician. Given all of the success it’s had on various streaming services thus far, “Loving” is sure to pick up some added attention when it impacts at the Alternative format on Tuesday. Lastly, at #40, Lenny Kravitz scores his first top 40 entry on my survey since the fall of 2011 with “Low”, the first radio single off his forthcoming album Raise Vibration. The 54-year-old has narrowly missed the top ten with his past few chart songs here, including “Lady” (#13, 2005), “I’ll Be Waiting” (#14, 2007-08) and, most recently, “Stand” (#13, 2011).

Chart Notes:

  • As Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa spend a second big week at #1 with “One Kiss”, while the Backstreet Boys climb up 24-12 with the week’s Biggest Mover, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”, another three songs break into top 40. Leading the, Maroon 5 is new at #37 with “Girls Like You”, the current #1 song on iTunes. A music video for the release, featuring a remix with Cardi B, was released a few days ago and includes top women in entertainment from the worlds of film, music, sports and television. Two notches lower, at #39, singer/songwriter Ben Rector launches with “Drive”. It’s the first radio single off his forthcoming set Magic, due June 22. Rector went to #5 on my chart in the spring of 2016 with “Brand New”, which also reached the top ten on the Hot AC radio list. Finally, at #40, Canada’s Scott Helman is searching for his fourth consecutive top ten on my survey with “Ripple Effect”. You can find it on his album Hôtel de Ville, which also includes the singles “Kinda Complicated” (#4) and “PDA” (#7).

Chart Notes:

  • On this Memorial Day Weekend, there’s a new song at the top from Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa! “One Kiss” marks the first collaboration for the two soloists, soaring from 3-1 this week. It’s Harris’s first #1 on my chart and Lipa’s second, following her smash “New Rules”, which spent two weeks at the top in November. The current songs from A Great Big World (“Younger”) and the Backstreet Boys (“Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”) share the title of Biggest Mover this week, moving up a massive 12 notches to #12 and #24, respectively. (Expect both chart hits to vie for my own Song Of The Summer in the next few weeks.) A pair of new tracks enter the top 40 this week, led by Passenger‘s “Hell Or High Water” at #36. The single, which was recently serviced to the Triple A format, is the ninth chart entry for the singer, five of which have hit #1. Could this become his sixth? It may have a chance later this summer, especially as his upcoming set Runaway approaches. Two spots lower, at #38, the latest American Idol champ makes her chart debut: 20-year-old Maddie Poppe with “Going Going Gone”. It’s the third coronation song from the music competition show to make my survey since the start of the decade, following a pair of tracks from Phillip Phillips (“Home”, 2012) and Nick Fradiani (“Beautiful Life”, 2015).

NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of May 25, 2018

When you’re ready, bop away.

Memorial Day calls for some music that reaches the beaches, and you can’t go wrong with a number of the selections below. These are the notable digital and physical releases headed into the market this Friday:

SHAWN MENDES – Shawn Mendes (iTunes)
The self-titled release from this Canadian singer and songwriter shall make all the young girls scream and stream with joy. The first single off it, “In My Blood”, is still gaining nicely at several U.S. radio formats, and a handful of other instant grat tracks have reacted well across the many digital services, including the Khalid-assisted “Youth”. Unless Post Malone‘s recent album decides to challenge it, you should expect Mendes’s set to be a strong contender to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200.

A$AP ROCKY – Testing (iTunes)
After two #1 solo albums in 2013 and 2015, respectively, this Harlem performer is hoping to score his third with a set that features several interesting collaborations, including artists like Lauryn Hill and Moby. With a streaming advantage, could it blow past Mendes’s album to become the top release in the land, or will it fall just short of the prize? Stay tuned.

Notable albums out this week: CHVRCHES‘s Love Is Dead (iTunes), J Balvin‘s Vibras (iTunes), Janine‘s 99 (iTunes), Jessie J‘s R.O.S.E. (iTunes), Jonathan Davis‘s Black Labyrinth (iTunes), Juice WRLD‘s Goodbye & Good Riddance (iTunes), Pusha T‘s Daytona (iTunes), Snow Patrol‘s Wildness (iTunes), Thunderpussy‘s Thunderpussy (iTunes), Welshly Arms‘s No Place Is Home (iTunes)

Chart Notes:

  • Is it 1999 or 2018? That is the question. This week’s two splashy debuts come from none other than the Backstreet Boys and Christina Aguilera, who haven’t appeared on my survey together since the summer of 2001. Just under 17 years ago, in July of that year, “More Than That” from the Boys and “Lady Marmalade” from Aguilera and her Moulin Rouge pals, both #1 songs on my chart, last ranked in the top 40 simultaneously. (Though that was the last time the two acts appeared on my survey with individual titles, both sang on the 2001 charity track “What’s Going On?”, credited to the All-Star Tribute, while Carter from the Backstreet Boys and Aguilera were in the top 40 during the fall of 2002 with “Help Me” and “Dirrty”, respectively. Leaping ahead to the latest chart, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” (#36) from the five-man group and “Fall In Line” (#40) from Aguilera and duet partner Demi Lovato will be going strong on my chart for some time. Paging *NSYNC and Britney Spears, come back to the pop world…
