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.”
Carly Rae Jepsen makes a big jump from #14 to #2 with “Run Away With Me,” leaving her with three tracks in the top five. Leon Bridges and R5 make double-digit jumps again, as do two Kacey Musgraves album cuts. Debuts are led by the new single from A Great Big World, “Hold Each Other” featuring Futuristic. CAFUNÉ, R5, CHVRCHES, Lianne La Havas, Rob Thomas, (formerly Dale Earnhardt) JR JR, and Francesco Yates (with Robin Schulz) all return to the chart with new songs, and pop singer-songwriter Clairity scores her first entry with “DNA” at #98.
A quiet week for the chart sees positive action for Leon Bridges, Hunter Hunted, and R5. Only one debut makes the chart, Hunter Hayes’s “Young And In Love” at #95, but a quartet of re-entries appear as well from Hayes, Charlie Puth featuring Meghan Trainor, Bea Miller, and POWERS.
Carly Rae Jepsen now holds two spots in the top five (as does Alabama Shakes), with “I Really Like You” holding at #3 and “E·MO·TION” jumping to a new peak of #4. Kacey Musgraves, Grizfolk, and Demi Lovato make big moves in the chart’s upper half. Also in the top fifty is Hunter Hunted’s “Lucky Day,” the highest debut of the week at #48. Wildhood follows with the next entry, debut single “Psycho Jam,” at #60; in the lower rungs, R5 (who also re-enters “All Night”), Rob Thomas, ROMANS, and AIR BAG ONE all score with new songs.
Carly Rae Jepsen moves into the top three with “I Really Like You,” but Walk The Moon holds for a nineteenth week at #1 with “Shut Up And Dance.” Lianne La Havas adds a new top-ten hit to her record, as “Unstoppable” moves 12-9. The week’s two biggest movers land next to one another: Alessia Cara’s “Here” makes a jump of 32 spots up to #31, just behind Young Brother’s 30-position increase for “Kamikaze.” Jepsen also has the honor of the week’s highest debut, as the title track from E·MO·TION enters at #41. Following her are three new songs from Kacey Musgraves’s Pageant Material, along with debuts from R5, MKTO, I Know Leopard, firekid, Ashley Monroe, and John Newman, all of whom have previously charted.
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.
