While the top ten holds steady, the bottom of the chart sees more activity, typical for the fourth quarter of the year. Ellie Goulding blasts in at #23 with the highest debut for Delirium album track “Codes,” beating out strong entries for Justin Bieber featuring Halsey and Alessia Cara featuring Sebastian Kole. Goulding and Cara each notch a second new entry, for “Around U” and “Overdose” respectively; A Great Big World and One Direction also add a pair of charting songs, while Meghan Trainor and Grizfolk add one apiece. Sara Bareilles and Jason Mraz have the biggest-moving song with “You Matter To Me,” up forty to #59, followed by big movers for Coldplay and Goulding. There’s a lot of movement just below the top 100 that could see entry next week…if it weren’t for chart-topper Adele’s 25 slated for release on Friday, which is likely to take over several slots on the next chart.
With the top four still unmoved, Hope and Jason Mraz move into the top five with “Love Love Love,” while P!nk’s “Raise Your Glass” vaults to #8 in its second week on the chart. The Script gets the highest debut with “Walk Away” in at #15, along with four more new entries from Science & Faith.
The entire top five holds steady, with Hope and Jason Mraz nipping at their heels by jumping to #6 with “Love Love Love.” Along with Ingrid Michaelson’s “Parachute,” which moves 15-7, Maroon 5 adds two more songs to the top ten: “No Curtain Call” at #9 and “Don’t Know Nothing” at #10, raising the number of top-ten songs from Hands All Over to five.
