Chart Notes:

  • Newcomer Barns Courtney lands the new #1 song on my chart this week with “Fire”. It’s taken from the forthcoming EP titled Hands, due out May 27. The English singer was born in Ipswich, and is now based in London. Titles containing “fire” within them appear pretty regularly on the countdown, but this is the first song simply called “Fire” to ever make my chart. (Of course, songs with the title by bands like the Ohio Players, the Pointer Sisters and The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown were massive national hits decades ago.)
  • Despite a change at the top, there isn’t much change down below it. The two singles tied for the Biggest Mover last week? It remains a tie this week for P!nk‘s “Just Like Fire” (27-17) and Adele‘s “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” (24-14), both up an impressive ten notches. No debut song from last week moves up more than five spots. Plus, there are no new entries at all this week. Don’t worry, there will be some nice turnover by the next update, so stay tuned for what happens!
  • Misc. chart notes: Fitz & The Tantrums earn their fifth top ten in a row on my chart, as “HandClap” advances 12-7. It’s a single from their forthcoming self-titled album, due June 10. DNCE scrub up another three spots (22-19) to grab a second top 20 hit in “Toothbrush”. It follows “Cake By The Ocean”, which went to #4. Newcomer Jordan Fisher, who played the role of Doody in Grease: Live, looks chartbound next week as the #1 Next In Line with “All About Us”.

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut is a new single from Canadian sisters Tegan and Sara Quin. “Boyfriend” is already soaring up the radio listings in their home country, and it comes in at #37 on my own chart. In 2007, the two girls scored their biggest hit on my chart with “Back In Your Head”, which went to #12. Will this track from Love You To Death stay alive and get its time in the top ten? Stay tuned!
  • Following “On My Mind” (#2) and “Something In The Way You Move” (#10) is Ellie Goulding‘s newest single, “Army”, a debut at #39 this week. “Army” previously made the top 40 in Scotland and the United Kingdom, and now, it’s looking at a nice run on the pop airwaves here in the States. Goulding has a number of U.S. tour dates in May and June.
  • Finally, the New Zealand act called Broods debuts this week with “Free”. It’s the first single from their forthcoming album Conscious. Entering at #40, this isn’t the first time “Free” has appeared as a title on my chart. In 2001, it hit the top ten for Mya, and in 2012, it was a minor top 40 entry for Haley Reinhart.
  • The late Prince bubbled under my chart several times, but never quite made it in. However, covers of his material by acts like Jordan Knight (1999) and Alicia Keys (2002) did break my top 40. Still, we salute this great musician and all of his superb albums and songs over the many decades of his career.

Chart Notes:

  • Forget the endless weeks of seeing two debuts on my usual update: it’s a spring cleaning week on my personal chart, as five new songs hop aboard the survey. The highest of the five entries is “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)”, new at #34 for a singer I’ve never heard of before… do you know Adele? No? She must be a music industry secret. Jokes aside, “Love” isn’t officially confirmed as the third single from 25, but it has seen some key spins at a couple of big Hot AC stations during the last tracking week. Can it become her third chart-topper in a row from the album on my chart? Stay tuned.
  • From the forthcoming motion picture Alice Through The Looking Glass, P!nk is back on the countdown with a new one at #37. “Just Like Fire” is, well, on fire at radio thanks to sponsored airplay on stations owned by iHeartMedia, and is blazing in the top ten on iTunes. The singer has been a part of movie hits before, like her feature on “Lady Marmalade” in 2001, as well as “Feel Good Time” in 2003. (Moulin Rouge‘s “Lady” spent five weeks at #1, while “Feel” from Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle reached #7.)
  • A decade ago, even five years ago, if you had asked me about Disturbed ever reaching my chart, I would’ve laughed. Now, the band gets their first entry on here. Who knew? Their cover of “The Sound Of Silence” is an unexpected crossover hit in the making. At #40, “Sound” is the first #1 at Active Rock radio to reach my chart since Shinedown‘s “Second Chance”. It peaked at #2 in 2009 on both the weekly and year-end chart.
  • More chart notes: MAGIC!‘s fourth top 40 hit is new at #35 this week. “Lay You Down Easy” features Sean Paul. “Rude” remains their biggest single on my chart, a #2 hit in 2014. The Goo Goo Dolls feel “So Alive” with their debut at #39. It’s the band’s first entry in three years, and leads Boxes, out May 6. Two future summer songs from Bahari and Chris Ayer tie for the week’s Biggest Mover, both up eight.

Chart Notes:

  • Former One Direction member Zayn Malik grabs his first solo #1 on my top 40 with “Pillowtalk”, up 2-1 this week. That song is taken from the album Mind Of Mine, which recently entered atop the Billboard 200 and similar album charts in the world, including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Malik’s last #1 as a member of the boy band was “Story Of My Life”, which spent three weeks at the top of my chart in December 2013.
  • Two newcomers make their chart debut this week. The highest is from Los Angeles singer Chris Ayer, who bows in at #37 with “On The Blvd”. He’s currently on tour with Matt Simons in Europe, and I’m sure he’ll be playing “Blvd” quite a bit in concert. The song does have a fair amount of road to cover before it reaches the biggest “boulevard” title ever on my chart, “Boulevard Of Broken Dreams”, a seven-week #1 in 2004 and 2005 for Green Day.
  • Do you recall a song by DJ/producer Zedd called “Addicted To A Memory”? Released in 2015 on his True Colors album, it featured a California trio that’s now looking to launch a big summer sound at CHR/Pop radio in a month. They’re Bahari, and they debut at #40 with “Dancing On The Sun”. The group consists of Natalia Panzarella, Ruby Carr and Sidney Sartini. “Sun” was co-written by the girls and Rock Mafia.

Chart Notes:

  • We have a new song at the top this week, and it’s a fun one. “Work This Body” becomes another chart-topper on my list for Walk The Moon, the third single off their album Talking Is Hard.  The Ohio act becomes the first band to score three #1 singles from one album on my top 40 since fun. pulled off the trick in 2013. The other two were “Shut Up And Dance” and “Different Colors” in 2014 and 2015, respectively.
  • Last year, Conrad Sewell got as high at #9 with his first chart single, “Hold Me Up”. Now, the recent birthday boy is back in the countdown with his follow-up single, which takes the title of Highest Debut. In at #39, “Remind Me” comes from the EP titled All I Know, which landed in the top ten in his native Australia. (Unfortunately, it didn’t do nearly as well here.)
  • In 2013, The Summer Set stalled just under the top 50 at pop radio with the song “Boomerang”. They also performed at the iHeartRadio Music Festival that year. They’ll be trying for better with their latest single, “Missin’ You”, new at #40. It’s the first radio release from Stories For Monday, which came out on Friday. It goes for adds on April 19.

Chart Notes:

  • The winner of this year’s top 40 egg hunt is Fitz & The Tantrums, who just debuted their latest single on Thursday. The song is called “HandClap”, and it extends its hands out to reach the #36 spot. It leads their forthcoming album, a self-titled effort, due on June 10. The band’s biggest song on my chart remains their first, “MoneyGrabber”, which spent a week at #1 in 2011.
  • Former Disney star Demi Lovato also enters on this week’s countdown, new at #39 with “Stone Cold”. Her pretty ballad, co-written by Lovato, can be found on the album Confident, which contains two prior radio hits in the title track and “Cool For The Summer”. A video for it premiered in late February.
  • The third top 40 entry from Duran Duran‘s Paper Gods album is this week’s final debut. “Last Night In The City” has yet to paint the town red, at least at U.S. radio, but it enters at #40 on my chart. The song features Kiesza, who hit the top 20 in 2014 with “Hideaway”.

Chart Notes:

  • 19-year-old English singer Birdy flies onto my personal chart for the first time this week with “Keeping Your Head Up”. It comes in at #39 as the Highest Debut. The song is from her upcoming album Beautiful Lies, due on March 25, and goes for adds at Hot AC radio next week. Her cover of “Skinny Love” stalled in the 30’s at the format two years ago. We’ll see if this single can do any better for the young performer.
  • “Torches” is the latest top 40 entry by Daughtry, and a single from It’s Not Over… The Hits So Far. (Can you believe they made it to a greatest hits album?) The song debuts at #40 this week. It’s the quintet’s 13th hit to reach my top 40 since “It’s Not Over” debuted in 2006. Of those 13, two went to #1: “No Surprise” in 2009 and “Crawling Back To You” in 2011.
  • Next week could be a battle of the sophomore singles as potential debuts on my chart. While there are several listed below my chart at the moment, songs by BANNERS and Nick Fradiani have the most potential right now. Stay tuned to see if they, or any other acts, debut next Sunday!
