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.
Finish Ticket and Justin Bieber enter the top ten, pushing out Andrew Ripp and Lianne La Havas. Not far below, Ellie Goulding scores her second big debut of the year with Delirium track “Something In The Way You Move,” which enters at #13. Tinashé and Dagny make big moves and approach the top twenty. Additional debuts include Kenzie Nimmo, Olly Murs, and Carrie Underwood.
Sara Bareilles’s “She Used To Be Mine” continues its ascent, climbing from 6 to 2 in its third week. Justin Bieber, Finish Ticket, and Ellie Goulding all move up within the top twenty, while Cam enters for the first time with “Burning House” and ROMANS moves back in with “Uh Huh.” Tinashé’s first chart entry, “Player,” is the week’s highest debut, with the fast-moving HØØNCH’s debut single “Top” just below. Additional debuts include newcomers Dagny and Phoebe Ryan and new songs from firekid and Tor Miller.
Alessia Cara moves a second song, “Seventeen,” into the top five, while Sara Bareilles makes a big move into the top ten as “She Used to Be Mine” ascends 31-6 in its second week. Justin Bieber’s “What Do You Mean?” enters the top twenty. Sia brings the week’s highest debut as “Alive” begins at #32.
Carly Rae runs away with a fifth week at #1 while continuing to secure three other slots in the top ten. Felix Cartal and Nikki Yanofsky jump into the top five; Alessia Cara, Andrew Ripp, and Grace Mitchell all move into the top twenty. Inside the top fifty, Cam rebounds with a new peak for “Burning House” at #46; below, Maddie & Tae and Justin Bieber each make big climbs. EZA is the week’s highest debut, returning with a new single, “We Keep The Lights Out.” New tracks from Montaigne, Maddie & Tae, CRUISR, Grace Mitchell, and Max Frost also notch their first weeks, while Audien and Lady Antebellum’s collaboration “Something Better” returns to its original peak of #94.
Carly Rae Jepsen and Alessia Cara are the week’s leading ladies: the former sits at every other position in the top ten (including #1 for “Run Away With Me” for a fourth week), while the latter jumps to #2 with “Here” and grabs the two highest debuts in the top thirty with Four Pink Walls EP tracks “Seventeen” and “Outlaws.” Felix Cartal and Nikki Yanofsky’s collaboration “Something To Live For” also makes another nice jump, up eight to #6. Other notable climbs include new Carrie Underwood single “Smoke Break,” Mackenzie Thoms’s “Conviction,” Shane & Emily’s “You’re Mine,” and JoJo’s “Save My Soul.” The latter two artists also add new debuts to the chart, as do Andrew Ripp, Emily King, R5, and Justin Bieber. Finally, Maddie & Tae re-enters with “Downside Of Growing Up” thanks to the release of their debut album, Start Here, as does Taylor Swift with new single “Wildest Dreams.”
