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.
Adele sails in at #3 with “Hello,” the highest debut since Alabama Shakes’s “Don’t Wanna Fight” also scored a #3 debut early in the year. Troye Sivan’s “Talk Me Down” is the greatest gainer of the week, jumping 50-21. Carrie Underwood marks the next-highest new entry, as Storyteller cut “Relapse” enters at #29; new songs from One Direction and Ellie Goulding also make the top 50.
Carly Rae Jepsen holds onto #1 for a second week as the top ten is stagnant save for a switch between Matt Nathanson and Alabama Shakes for #8 and #9. Second-week singles from Robin Thicke and Nicki Minaj, Lianne La Havas, and Jepsen make big moves into the top fifty. In the lower half, Years & Years score the week’s highest debut, as “Desire” enters at #61. They enter over new songs from Emily King, Rob Thomas, and The Band Perry, along with newcomers Felix Cartal (featuring Nikki Yanofsky), Audien (featuring Lady Antebellum), and Shane & Emily.
Carly Rae Jepsen now holds two spots in the top five (as does Alabama Shakes), with “I Really Like You” holding at #3 and “E·MO·TION” jumping to a new peak of #4. Kacey Musgraves, Grizfolk, and Demi Lovato make big moves in the chart’s upper half. Also in the top fifty is Hunter Hunted’s “Lucky Day,” the highest debut of the week at #48. Wildhood follows with the next entry, debut single “Psycho Jam,” at #60; in the lower rungs, R5 (who also re-enters “All Night”), Rob Thomas, ROMANS, and AIR BAG ONE all score with new songs.
Walk The Moon holds the top spot over a fairly quiet top twenty, punctuated by jumps from The Script and The Veronicas at its bottom end. There’s plenty of activity further down on the chart, however, led by top-fifty debuts from Lianne La Havas, Wet, and Jarryd James. R5 also scores the week’s biggest mover by jumping 74-48 with “Let’s Not Be Alone Tonight.” Additional debuts in the second half of the chart include newcomers Young Brother and firekid, as well as new entries by Alabama Shakes, Bleachers, and Passenger.
Walk The Moon makes it a dozen weeks at the top with “Shut Up And Dance” continuing its reign. The top ten is mostly unchanged, impacted mainly by Carly Rae Jepsen’s jump to the top five with “I Really Like You.” Cheerleader’s “The Sunshine Of Your Youth” is the week’s biggest mover, leaping 32 positions to #35 in its fourth week on the chart. Just below, Chris Stapleton enters with the highest debut, “Traveller,” at #36. Josh Groban and Kelly Clarkson also make a debut in the chart’s upper half as their cover of The Phantom Of The Opera track “All I Ask Of You” reaches #50. Nine more debuts are led by Erik Hassle, another track from Handsome Ghost’s Steps EP, and two new tracks from the upcoming release of Alabama Shakes’ sophomore album, Sound & Color.
