  • After stalling at #2 in October with “Skate”, the duo Silk Sonic bounces from 2-1 with “Smokin’ Out The Window”, the second #1 single from An Evening With Silk Sonic on my personal chart. The first, “Leave The Door Open”, led my list for three weeks last May. Speaking of threes, that also happens to be the number of debuts this week: new at #35, Alesso and Katy Perry dance in with “When I’m Gone”, the top entry on the chart. With her recent viral hit from TikTok, Sadie Jean starts at #39 with “WYD Now?”, her first top 40 song. The reunited Big Time Rush is also new this week with their first charting tune since the fall of 2012: “Call It Like I See It” is in at #40.

Chart Notes:

  • Ho-ho-holding onto the top spot on my personal chart, Adele spends a sixth big week at the summit with “Easy On Me”. This will likely be the song’s last week at the top, as new singles by Benson Boone, Silk Sonic and… yes, Adele herself are all bulleted in the top five. There’s little action elsewhere on the chart, as no songs enter the top 40 and the top movers are up a mere five notches from last week.
  • Stay tuned for my Top 100 of 2021 this week, featuring international hits from Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Olivia Rodrigo and more!

Up ten spots, the Biggest Mover of the week comes from newcomer GAYLE with “Abcdefu”, advancing from 36-26. Two songs debut on the list, both of which feature the 74-year-old music legend who reached #1 on my chart this past fall in a duet with Dua Lipa: of course, he’s Elton John. Coming in at #39, “E-Ticket” is a collaboration with Eddie Vedder from The Lockdown Sessions, which impacts at the Triple A radio format on Monday. At #40, John shares a seasonal single with Ed Sheeran in “Merry Christmas”. All of the proceeds from the song in the United Kingdom will go towards their own respective charities.
