However, this week’s update is all about the new entries and there’s a huge one at #18: “Easy On Me”, the comeback hit for Adele. So, how quickly will it fly to the top? Stay tuned! Meanwhile, her new album 30 will be released on November 19 and it’s sure to be an immediate success. There are three other debuts on the chart by artists who are not named Adele: at #38, Noah Kahan and Joy Oladokun are off to a good start with “Someone Like You”, the second top 40 entry from Kahan’s recent album I Was / I Am. A remake of “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)” enters at #39 for January Jane, as they take on the Hall & Oates chart-topper from late 1981 and early 1982. Finally, Ireland’s Westlife is in at #40 with “Starlight”, which previews their latest album Wild Dreams ahead of its release on November 26.

Tied for the week’s Biggest Mover, Coldplay and BTS leap from 27-21 on the chart with “My Universe”, while the late Whitney Houston rises from 40-34 with a Clean Bandit remix of 1986’s “How Will I Know”. Sting leads a batch of three debuts that could be from 1985 or 2021, as “Rushing Water” (from his upcoming album The Bridge) flows onto the chart at #33. John Mellencamp and Bruce Springsteen debut at #38 with “Wasted Days”, while Tears For Fears are in at #39 with the title cut from The Tipping Point, their first studio album since 2004.

Chart Notes:

  • Frozen solid at #1 on my personal chart for the fourth consecutive week, “Cold Heart” is still beating at the top spot for Elton John and Dua Lipa. Their duet, which is featured on John’s The Lockdown Sessions compilation, should be safe at the summit for the next few weeks. Coldplay and BTS climb from 36-27 on the chart with “My Universe”, earning it the title of this week’s Biggest Mover. Three releases debut in the top 40: “Like My Father” is the highest at #34, as Jax earns her second top 40 single of 2021. Charli XCX is one notch lower with “Good Ones”, off to a fairly good start at #35. Finally, the late Whitney Houston debuts at #40 with a new remix of 1986’s “How Will I Know”, reimagined by Clean Bandit. The original song spent two weeks at #1 on the CHR radio chart.

Chart Notes:

  • Chilling at #1 on my personal chart for the third week in a row, “Cold Heart” is frozen in place for Elton John and Dua Lipa. Lifting from 21-11, Ed Sheeran claims the Biggest Mover in the countdown for the second time with “Shivers”, as “Bad Habits” holds at #2 for the fourth nonconsecutive week. There’s just one new entry in the top 40 this week and it’s a noteworthy collaboration: at #36, “My Universe” pairs Coldplay and BTS on their first song together. The former’s “Higher Power”, a recent #1 hit on my chart, is down to #16.

Chart Notes:

  • For the second week in a row, “Cold Heart” leads my personal chart for Elton John and Dua Lipa. The latest release from Ed Sheeran is the Biggest Mover in the countdown, as “Shivers” jumps from 36-21 and paces well ahead of other notable moves for songs from Duran Duran and Kacey Musgraves, among others. Coming in at #38, this week’s only debut is from MUNA and Phoebe Bridgers with “Silk Chiffon”. The latter artist has never previously appeared on my chart, but the trio ranked at #1 for two weeks in 2017 with “I Know A Place”.
