Laura Mvula scores her second #1, as Nile Rodgers-featuring “Overcome” passes former chart-toppers Adele and Cam to take the top spot, while the rest of the top ten holds steady. Kris Allen’s “Waves” is the highest debut at #14; below the top fifty, the chart also adds debuts by Céline Dion, The Knocks featuring Walk The Moon, Mayer Hawthorne (whose “Cosmic Love” also re-enters), Fleur East, Yuna, and Hannah Grace.
Though the top three is close, Adele holds at #1 for a third week with “When We Were Young.” Lissie’s “Daughters” vaults into the top five upon the album release of My Wild West, while Charles Kelley’s “Leaving Nashville” moves into the top ten. Dua Lipa’s “Be The One” is the highest debut at #51, while she also introduces new song “Last Dance” at #88. Lissie’s album adds another five songs, led by “Sun Keeps Risin'” at #57.

Adele stays “Young” at #1 with Cam and Laura Mvula/Nile Rodgers holding in the top three. Lissie moves into the top ten with “Don’t You Give Up On Me.” Charles Kelley adds another top-twenty song with “Leaving Nashville,” while also debuting another three songs from The Driver. Rihanna, however, scores the highest debut for a second week in a row as ANTI closer “Close To You” vaults in at #42.
After six weeks at the top for Cam and “Burning House,” she concedes the top spot to Adele’s “When We Were Young,” giving Adele her second #1 from 25 and fifth overall. Montaigne moves to #5 with “In The Dark.” CAFUNÉ moves both “Lay Low” and “Warm Body” into the top ten, with Lissie’s “Don’t You Give Up On Me” and Birdy’s “Keeping Your Head Up” just below. At #32, ZAYN’s debut solo single “PILLOWTALK” is the top debut. Aside from a lofty re-entry from Mackenzie Thoms, the rest of the chart’s debuts are from Rihanna, whose half-dozen new entries are led by “Kiss It Better” at #34, and Charles Kelley, who debuts The Driver tracks “Leaving Nashville” at #48 and “Round In Circles” at #75.
Cam holds off Adele for another week, while Laura Mvula and Nile Rodgers rise to #3 with “Overcome.” Montaigne makes it a second week in a row with a top-ten debut, as her new single “In The Dark” enters at #9. Lissie and Birdy each jump ten places into the top twenty. The 1975 score their first song to chart with “The Sound,” in at #45. Also leading the pack among this week’s debuts are songs by Joel Adams, another from Lissie, Chairlift, Alex Newell, and Charles Kelley.
Cam stays at #1 for a fourth week, with Adele’s “When We Were Young” moving into the runner-up position. Lucius scores their first top-ten hit with “Born Again Teen” and CAFUNÉ gets a second top-twenty as “Lay Low” jumps 22-17. Birdy is the week’s biggest mover, however, as “Keeping Your Head Up” leaps from last week’s #100 debut up to #42. Just below, Alabama Shakes gets a lofty re-entry – the first of four – with “Sound & Color” at #46; Charles Kelley’s “Lonely Girl” is the highest new entry at #75.
2016 begins with Cam’s “Burning House” still on top and Adele occupying positions two through four, with “When We Were Young” moving to #3 ahead of “Water Under The Bridge.” Coldplay returns to the top ten with “Adventure Of A Lifetime,” with Lucius just behind. Tove Lo achieves the highest debut with a demo uploaded to SoundCloud called “Influence,” ahead of a re-entry from Elle King and debuts by Ra Ra Riot, newcomer Lostboycrow, and Birdy.
After seven weeks at the top, Adele’s “Hello” leaves the pole position for Cam’s “Burning House” to take over. Taking the top in its 27th week on the chart, it becomes the song with the longest ascent to #1 in chart history. Adele holds positions 2-4, with Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Run Away With Me” rounding out the top five. Another version of “Burning House,” by EZA and Aaron Krause, leaps 36-7 in its second week. “Can’t Let Go” becomes the fourth song from 25 to reach the top ten, while Sophia Somajo and Fleur East both enter the top twenty. The highest debut of the week is “80’s Mercedes,” the first of three entries this week from Maren Morris’s self-titled debut EP; Majid Jordan, American Authors, another song from Cam’s Untamed, and Pony Pony Run Run also debut.
Adele holds the top spot with “Hello” while also moving “Water Under The Bridge” to a new peak of #3. Cam also rebounds again with “Burning House,” now in the runner-up spot. Alessia Cara moves her vocal collaboration with Sebastian Kole, “Stone,” into the top ten. Speaking of “Burning House,” EZA and Aaron Krause’s new cover of the Cam hit is the week’s highest debut at #36. CAFUNÉ scores a pair of entries from debut EP Love Songs For Other People, as does Troye Sivan from his album Blue Neighbourhood, while Cam gets another four from debut album Untamed.
Compared to last week, the new chart is quiet – Adele adds a third song to the top five, while Sara Bareilles moves a second into the top ten. Fleur East, newcomer and X Factor contestant, is the highest new entrant at #67 with debut single “Sax.”
