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!

Chart Notes:

  • The highest of this week’s three new entries is from a chart regular. In fact, this is only one of two artists in the top 40 to be listed on my first chart from September 1999. Back then, it was a featured appearance on Santana‘s “Smooth”. Now, Rob Thomas has his 24th top 40 hit combined on my chart with “Pieces”, new at #38. It’s from his The Great Unknown set, an album that’s now given him three hits.
  • Country duo Florida Georgia Line grab their third crossover hit on my chart with “H.O.L.Y.”, debuting at #39 this week. The song is currently surging in the top five on their core radio format, while it’s also approaching the top 40 at Hot AC. It’s going to be some time before they reach the #3 peak of “Cruise” from 2013, their biggest hit to date.
  • The last time Serena Ryder was on my chart, she hit #17 with the song “Stompa”. Three years later, she returns with “Got Your Number”, new at #40 this week. It’s already seeing some good gains at Hot AC radio in her native Canada.

Chart Notes:

  • Troye Sivan has one of the biggest songs on my chart so far this year with “Youth”, a three-week #1 that currently falls to #37, down a spot from last week. This week, he lands my Highest Debut at #35 with an updated version of “Wild”. The new mix features singer Alessia Cara. Both of those tracks (“Wild” in its original form) can be found on Blue Neighbourhood, which Sivan released last year.
  • The New York duo Phantogram had a big top five Alternative hit in 2014 with “Fall In Love”. That song didn’t quite make my chart, but their new single is definitely catching on with me. “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore” comes in at #36. It’s off to a great start at radio, and should continue to do well through the late summer and early fall.
  • Following their international smash “7 Years”, the Danish quartet Lukas Graham is hitting U.S. radio with “Mama Said”. It’s a new entry at #38 this week. The song interpolates the popular “It’s The Hard Knock Life” from the musical Annie.
  • Lastly, at #39, is the third top 40 single from The 1975‘s I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it album. “Somebody Else” follows “The Sound”, which recently hit #3 and comes in at #31 this week.

Chart Notes:

  • Two of the biggest acts to debut on my personal chart in 2013 return with some massive new songs. The singer/songwriter born in the English town of Brighton claims the Highest Debut of the two, coming in at #29. He’s four-time Adam’s Top 40 chart-topper Passenger, and his single is “Somebody’s Love”. It goes for Triple A adds later this month. His new album is titled Young As The Morning Old As The Sea, and it’s due on September 23. Needless to say, I’m very excited to hear it.
  • The only other debut this week is from rockers Bastille, the English quartet that has a pair of chart-toppers thus far. That could change to three if “Good Grief” makes it to the top, but for now, it’s in at #31. Their new album, Wild World, is set to come out later this year. What kind of weird science awaits us on the new set? I’m sure we’ll find out soon.
  • Next week is looking like a really active chart, with the potential for as many as six debuts! There’s a mix of established acts and newcomers that are waiting in the wings, so check back to see who makes it into the 40.

Chart Notes:

  • It’s a speedy rise to the top for Justin Timberlake‘s international smash, “Can’t Stop The Feeling”. It advances 2-1 in its sixth week on the chart. “Can’t” is featured on the soundtrack to the upcoming film Trolls, which isn’t out until November. (Spoiler alert: the song probably won’t be at #1 then.) Timberlake first hit #1 on my personal chart in 2000 as a part of the boy band *NSYNC.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is from 27-year-old Wrabel. He’s new at #37 with “11 Blocks”. Nearly two years ago, he was on this very blog when his Sideways EP was released. I enjoyed the interview then, and I’m really enjoying his latest song. It’s not available to purchase or stream yet, but it has debuted on a few Hot AC radio stations in the last few days.
  • The only other debut is the second chart single from AudioDamn!, “Don’t Call Me When It’s Over”. The German act calls in at #40 this week. This past January, they reached #31 with “Radar”. The trio recently shot a video for their latest single.
