Demi Lovato and Lady Gaga are tied for the Biggest Mover title at nine spots each, with “I Love Me” (35-26) and “Stupid Love” (20-11) poised for higher peaks. Debut action in the top 40 is busy this week, with “Caution” from The Killers leading the way at #32. The band’s forthcoming album, Imploding The Mirage, is due May 29. The third top 40 hit on my chart for Tones And I, “Bad Child”, debuts at #34. It replaces “Dance Monkey”, her former chart-topper, which dropped to #34 last week and is out of the top 40 now. A little further down, OneRepublic returns with “Didn’t I”, new at #38, as the viral release “Supalonely” lands at #39 for two newcomers: Benee and Gus Dapperton. The former is the current single from the band’s forthcoming album Human, due May 8. The latter is from the New Zealand singer’s EP Stella & Steve, which was released last fall.

Lady Gaga has the week’s Biggest Mover with “Stupid Love”, climbing from 30-20 in its second week in the top 40. Two new songs also enter on the survey this week, both of which were released in the last few days: “I Love Me” by Demi Lovato at #35 and “Gaslighter” by the Dixie Chicks at #39.

Will it be strong enough to enter the top 40 by the weekend? Stay tuned. Rising from 37-26, this week’s Biggest Mover belongs to Mandy Moore‘s “Save A Little For Yourself”, the first radio single off her forthcoming set Silver Landings. It heads for adds at the Triple A radio format next month. Taylor Swift leads the debut parade at #38 with “The Man”, the new and fourth radio single from Lover, while Finneas‘s “Let’s Fall In Love For The Night” (#39) and Lizzo‘s “Cuz I Love You” (#40) follow just behind it. Look for both Swift and Lizzo’s songs to place high on the adds report at Top 40 radio this coming Tuesday. Finneas’s song, which originally came out in the fall of 2018, impacts at the Alternative radio format in a few weeks.

Chart Notes:

  • Dua Lipa remains at #1 on my personal chart for the second week with “Don’t Start Now”, as the top three shifts a bit thanks to growing songs from JP Saxe and Julia Michaels (up 4-2) and Harry Styles (up 5-3), both of which are vying to become the next chart-topper. However, a pack of four entries at the bottom of the list takes up most of the excitement this week. With her first top 40 song since 2007, Mandy Moore‘s “Save A Little For Yourself” is the highest of the debuts, landing at #37. It’s the radio single from the actress and singer’s forthcoming set Silver Landings, out March 6. It impacts at the Triple A radio format in mid-February. Kaleo‘s “I Want More” follows Moore at #38, which heads for adds at that format and at Alternative radio during the last week of January. The new songs from The 1975 and Louis Tomlinson also check in at #39 and #40, respectively, with “Me & You Together Song” and “Walls” getting serviced to radio several days back. The latter performer is two weeks away from the release of his debut album, which is also titled Walls. The quartet’s Notes On A Conditional Form lands on April 24.
