The contents of the top ten remain unchanged, while former two-time chart-topper Lianne La Havas moves into the top twenty with “Unstoppable.” New Warner Bros. signing PHASES scores the highest entry with debut single “I’m In Love With My Life,” along with another debut, “Cooler,” further down the list. Allen Stone is the greatest gainer, reaching #51 with “Freedom” ahead of additional debuts that include new singles from Maroon 5, Tori Kelly, and American Authors. New cuts from Adam Lambert, Rachel Platten, and Kendrick Lamar also log their first week, along with American Idol coronation songs from winner Nick Fradiani and runner-up Clark Beckham.
With the top ten completely frozen, the first interesting moves come later in the top twenty, with Josh Groban and Kelly Clarkson’s “All I Ask Of You” jumping 28-19 and R5’s “Let’s Not Be Alone Tonight” also entering the top twenty, up 31-20. It’s a quiet week for debuts as well, with Neon Trees scoring the highest of the four new entries with newly-released single “Songs I Can’t Listen To.” Sia and Little Big Town also re-enter with their current singles; the additional debuts come from American Idol‘s Clark Beckham, NEEDTOBREATHE featuring Gavin DeGraw, and another single from Allen Stone.
Alabama Shakes are one of the week’s biggest movers and shakers, launching 39-3 with Sound & Color album cut “Gimme All Your Love,” one spot ahead of lead single “Don’t Wanna Fight.” Carly Rae Jepsen makes the highest jump as “I Really Like You” jumps 45 spots to #18, while Kelly Clarkson and John Legend duet “Run Run Run” is second, jumping from #77 to #37. French artist Christine and the Queens makes her first chart appearance at #40 with her first English song, “Tilted,” from her forthcoming EP Saint Claude. She beats out four more Kelly Clarkson debuts, led by “Nostalgic” at #59. Also charting their first songs this week are XYLØ, The Chainsmokers (featuring the formerly-charting Great Good Fine OK), and current American Idol contestant Clark Beckham, as well as a new cover from CAFUNÉ.
