Cam holds off Adele for another week, while Laura Mvula and Nile Rodgers rise to #3 with “Overcome.” Montaigne makes it a second week in a row with a top-ten debut, as her new single “In The Dark” enters at #9. Lissie and Birdy each jump ten places into the top twenty. The 1975 score their first song to chart with “The Sound,” in at #45. Also leading the pack among this week’s debuts are songs by Joel Adams, another from Lissie, Chairlift, Alex Newell, and Charles Kelley.
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.
The top three is static for a sixth consecutive week, with the only movement in the top ten this week coming from Coldplay, whose “Adventure Of A Lifetime” moves 11-10. Two songs make high debuts in the top thirty: new Lucius single “Born Again Teen” and a new single from former chart-topper Lissie, “Don’t You Give Up On Me.” Troye Sivan adds three more songs from Blue Neighbourhood to his list of chart entries, while CAFUNÉ, Sophia Somajo, Ra Ra Riot & Rostam (of Vampire Weekend), Miike Snow, FLETCHER, and Coldplay also debut.
Adele holds for a second week at #1 with “Hello,” with Carly Rae Jepsen and Sara Bareilles steady in the top three. Bareilles is also the week’s biggest mover, as “Door Number Three” jumps from its #59 debut last week into the top twenty. (Speaking of the top twenty, a notable fact: Walk The Moon’s “Shut Up And Dance” exits the top twenty this week for the first time in its 61st week on the chart). Coldplay scores the highest debut of the week with A Head Full Of Dreams lead single “Adventure Of A Lifetime,” in at #55 ahead of Lissie’s “Hero” at #62. Additional debuts include new entries from xoV, Tori Kelly, and Alessia Cara.
Walk The Moon scores a ninth week at #1 with the top ten mostly unchanged, save a move into the top five by Nate Ruess and a #10 entry for Morgan Page and Lissie. Rachel Platten makes another big jump, up 27 to #13 in her third week on with “Fight Song.” Once again, Sam Hunt, Olly Murs featuring Demi Lovato, and The Veronicas make double-digit jumps, as do Martin Luke Brown’s “Take Out Of Me” and Greg Holden’s “Hold On Tight.” The biggest chart entry this week is a re-entry, as CAFUNÉ’s debut single “Letting Go” returns at #83 after last charting at #99 at the beginning of February. Florence + The Machine lands another debut from upcoming album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, but the rest of the debuts are all from artists appearing for the first time: Years & Years, Handsome Ghost, Brandon Flowers, The Bros. Landreth, and Cheerleader.
