Chart Notes:

  • Earning their second #1 song on my chart and first since the spring of 2012, Keane climbs from 2-1 with “The Way I Feel”. The band also rises from 40-33 with “Love Too Much”, the follow-up single. Both cuts can be found on their album Cause And Effect, due September 20. Debuting at #38, Ingrid Michaelson has this week’s highest new entry with “Young And In Love”, which follows her recent #9 entry “Missing You”. At #39, Freya Ridings earns her first top 40 single (following a few near misses) with “Castles”, a current top ten hit in Belgium and Scotland. A third new song checks in at #40: “Motivation” by Normani, which marks her first appearance on my list, though she’s had plenty of radio hits both as a solo artist and with the girl group Fifth Harmony. All three of this week’s new entries impact at either the Hot AC or Top 40 format by the end of the month.

Chart Notes:

  • Bastille remains at #1 for a third week with “Joy”, as bulleted entries from Keane and Taylor Swift round out the top three. Look for either “The Way I Feel” or “You Need To Calm Down” to move into the top spot next week. Speaking of Keane, the group also has one of three debuts in the top 40 with “Love Too Much”, which bows at #40. Both songs appear on their forthcoming studio album Cause And Effect, which is due September 20. The two other entries are from solo women: Katy Perry‘s “Small Talk” is in at #34, which serves as the follow-up to her recent #1 song “Never Really Over”, while Natasha Bedingfield‘s “Kick It” fights its way into the #39 spot. This is Bedingfield’s first track to hit my list in 6-1/2 years: her last entry, the Lifehouse collaboration “Between The Raindrops”, peaked at #7. Her latest album Roll With Me arrives on August 30.
