Alessia Cara moves into the top five with debut single “Here,” and Kacey Musgraves enters the top ten with “Dime Store Cowgirl.” Big moves come from former chart-topper Martin Luke Brown, whose “Scars On Scars” jumps 52-34, and Clairity, who launches 98-54 with “DNA.” Lianne La Havas lands five more debuts from her new album Blood; Carly Rae Jepsen, Disclosure featuring Sam Smith, One Direction, Ryn Weaver, and Clairity also add to their chart history.
After a fourteen-week run at the top, Martin Luke Brown slips out of the pole position as Walk The Moon’s “Shut Up And Dance” ascends to #1 in its 21st week on the chart. The rest of the top ten gets a slight shake-up as well, with Walk The Moon’s “Aquaman” also moving into the top three, Ellie Goulding continuing her upward momentum as “Love Me Like You Do” goes from #6 to #4, and Carrie Underwood’s newly-announced single “Little Toy Guns” moving 12-10. Tori Kelly scores the week’s highest debut, with new single “Nobody Love” entering at a lofty #25. Toward the bottom of the chart, XOV, Max Frost, and Sam Smith re-enter the chart, while new songs come in from Train, Coasts, Justin Mauriello, and Lee Ann Womack.
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.
