The year’s first big debut comes from Laura Mvula, who recruits Nile Rodgers on new single “Overcome,” in at #5. Lucius continues climbing 9-7 with “Born Again Teen,” while new Good Grief track “Madness” also debuts at #66. The week’s biggest mover is Charles Kelley’s “Lonely Girl,” up 26 spots to #49; Grizfolk’s “Cosmic Angel” (#41) and “Bounty On My Head” (#59) each follow with a 24-spot jump (they also debut “Bohemian Bird” at #94 this week). Additional debuts include a new Lissie track, Wild Belle, Mree, Mayer Hawthorne.
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.
Cam’s “Burning House” and Finish Ticket’s “Scavenger” move into an otherwise quiet top ten, but the most notable change comes just below: Walk The Moon’s “Shut Up And Dance” exits the top ten for the first time, in its fifty-eighth week on the chart. Charles Kelley scores the biggest mover title this week along with featured acts Dierks Bentley and Eric Paslay, as “The Driver” vaults from last week’s debut position of #88 up to #36. One spot below, Martin Luke Brown is the highest debut with new single “Knife Edge.” Troye Sivan sneaks new song “Talk Me Down” into the top fifty as well. In the bottom half of the chart, Lauren Alaina, XYLØ, Bondax featuring Erik Hassle, and Wet enter, as does a re-entry from Finish Ticket.
