March kicks off as Kelly Clarkson comes in like a lion, sending “Piece By Piece” to a new #8 peak in its third run on the chart. Beyond her appearance, the top ten is fairly quiet: two of Lissie’s three top-ten singles move up, while Kris Allen squeaks “Waves” into the upper echelon. Nick Fradiani and newcomers MUNA both score top-forty debuts with their respective new singles “Get You Home” and “Winterbreak.”
Laura Mvula is steady at #1, with Lissie’s “Daughters” up a spot to #4 and Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Run Away With Me” back into the top ten. Rihanna scores a third top-twenty single from ANTI as lead, Drake-featuring single “Work” moves 25-19, joining “Kiss It Better” and “Close To You.” Dua Lipa makes it a second week with a pair of big leaps for “Be The One” (#20) and “Last Dance” (#31), the latter just ahead of the second re-entry for Kelly Clarkson’s “Piece By Piece” and the week’s highest debut, “Love Me Like That” by The Knocks featuring Carly Rae Jepsen. Jepsen’s Fuller House theme rendition, “Everywhere You Look,” debuts as well, as do new selections by The 1975, Yuna featuring Usher, Tove Lo, Javier Colon, Kris Allen, Miike Snow, and Miguel.
Laura Mvula scores her second #1, as Nile Rodgers-featuring “Overcome” passes former chart-toppers Adele and Cam to take the top spot, while the rest of the top ten holds steady. Kris Allen’s “Waves” is the highest debut at #14; below the top fifty, the chart also adds debuts by Céline Dion, The Knocks featuring Walk The Moon, Mayer Hawthorne (whose “Cosmic Love” also re-enters), Fleur East, Yuna, and Hannah Grace.
Jessie Ware and Kris Allen score big debuts, as “Say You Love Me” enters at #9 and “Lost” sits at the bottom of the top twenty. Allen adds five other songs from his album Horizons to the chart as well. While Josh Dorr introduces himself with a #84 debut for “All Or Nothing,” two soundtrack songs also enter: Gavin DeGraw’s “You Got Me,” from Dolphin Tale 2, and OneRepublic’s “Ordinary Human,” from The Giver.
