Chart Notes:

  • Harry Styles scores his third solo #1 single on my personal chart, as “Golden” advances from 3-1 this week. It’s the second from the Fine Line album: “Adore You” spent three weeks at the summit in February and March. New at #31 this week, Taylor Swift has the highest of three new entries in the countdown with “Willow”, the lead single from her surprise release Evermore. The companion set to Folklore will start at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart later this month. The late Chris Cornell lands at #36 with a remake of John Lennon’s posthumous 1981 hit “Watching The Wheels”. It’s taken from a Cornell covers album that came out on Friday, No One Sings Like You Anymore. Lastly, Gwen Stefani comes in at #40 with “Let Me Reintroduce Myself”. It’s appropriate considering that this track marks her first to reach my chart since the summer of 2016.

Two debuts land at the bottom of the survey, with LANY starting at #39 with “If This Is The Last Time” and Ritt Momney coming in at #40 with his cover of “Put Your Records On”.
