It’s a very E·MO·TION-al week on the chart for Carly Rae Jepsen, who notches a third week at #1 with “Run Away With Me.” With the entire top ten stagnant, the album’s title track and “I Really Like You” continue their hold on three of its ten spots. Most of the album enters the chart this week as well, led by “Let’s Get Lost” at #15. In other news, Felix Cartal’s collaboration with Nikki Yanofsky, “Something To Live For,” vaults from its #86 debut last week to #14. Gavin James, ROMANS, and Emily King score large jumps as well. Other debuts include two tracks from Grace Mitchell’s new Raceday EP, plus new tracks from Brayton Bowman, Carrie Underwood, BØRNS, newcomer Mackenzie Thoms, Céline Dion & Fred Pellerin, The Neighbourhood, Nick Jonas, Gorgon City featuring ROMANS, and JoJo.
R5 moves into the top ten with “Let’s Not Be Alone Tonight,” which jumps from #12 to #7. Adam Lambert (“Evil In The Night,” 42-32) scores the first of several double-digit jumps, also achieved by biggest movers Sage The Gemini and Nick Jonas (“Good Thing,” 94-37) as well as two more Lambert tracks (“Underground,” 56-43 and “Another Lonely Night,” 98-99), Joy Williams (“Until The Levee,” 59-44 and “What A Good Woman Does,” 97-75), POWERS (“Beat Of My Drum,” 79-45), ROMANS (“Uh Huh,” 74-55), Alessia Cara (“Here,” 90-63), Sia (“California Dreamin’,” 91-65), and Thomston (“Expiry Date,” 88-74). Matt Nathanson lands the highest of seven debuts with “Gold In The Summertime” at #46.
The top four hold steady for another week, though Walk The Moon could challenge for a spot in the top two soon. Below, One Direction leapfrogs Carrie Underwood to enter the top five, while Nick Jonas’s “Jealous” joins the top ten in a fifth consecutive week of upward movement. Labrinth scores the week’s biggest jump with another song called “Jealous,” jumping 55–13 in its second week; Mary J. Blige and I Know Leopard also move into the top twenty. Of the week’s nine debuts, six belong to Walk The Moon and their new album Talking Is Hard; Sam Smith, Brayton Bowman, and Rixton also chart new entries.
The top three are stagnant this week, but just below, Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars slide up three spots to #4 in their second week on the chart with “Uptown Funk,” while One Direction scores their second top-ten placement this album cycle as “Night Changes” vaults from #33 to #8. And while 1D scores several debuts upon the release of new album FOUR, it’s Sinclair who scores the top debut, with “Heaven On Earth” entering at #45 under a big #58-#30 jump for “The World Is Ours.” In addition to One Direction’s five debuts, new entries include chart newcomers Tor Miller and I Know Leopard, as well as new debuts from Sinclair, Lifehouse, and Nick Jonas. Kelly Clarkson also scores the first seasonal song to enter the chart this year, as “Wrapped In Red” debuts at #92. It’s the title track and first song to chart from her 2013 holiday album, since my chart went on hiatus late last year – her last song to chart was “Tie It Up,” which peaked at #35 last fall.
