While Jamie Scott holds at #1 for an eighth week, Martin Luke Brown is within striking distance as “Nostalgia” jumps to #2 in only its second week, finally moving Sia’s “Chandelier” to #3. Re-entries from Passenger and Ryn Weaver dot a group of debuts that includes new entries from Taylor Swift, Tove Lo, and Bad Suns, as well as newcomers Anamanaguchi, Hozier, Grace Mitchell, and Mickey Guyton.
Betty Who and Tove Lo add a hefty amount of strong female pop to the chart, but it’s UK newcomer Martin Luke Brown who leads the week’s debuts with a top-ten entry for “Nostalgia.” Grizfolk, The Lone Bellow, and Karmin also chart return entries.
Carrie Underwood makes a top-twenty entry in an otherwise fairly quiet week.
Jamie Scott leads debuts for the second time in three weeks with new preview single “Carry You Home” bowing at #22, just above Elle King’s “Ex’s & Oh’s” at #27. Big Data re-enters the chart with “Dangerous,” which debuted at #80 earlier this year before my chart went on hiatus; Echosmith, Sheppard, Vance Joy, and MKTO also return after a few weeks off. New entries from Ella Henderson, Alex & Sierra, Jamestown Revival, and others dot the bottom reaches of the chart.
A quiet week on the chart is broken only by a few big jumps from Sir Sly, You+Me, and Sucré. Debuts include newcomers Kyle Lionhart, Cathedrals, Sofi de la Torre, and Niia.
Two top-ten debuts from Jamie Scott featuring Christina Perri and Walk The Moon lead the pack of nineteen new entries, with more new songs waiting in the wings for next week.
A quiet week both within the top ten – Prince entering at #6 is the only notable activity – and on the chart as a whole, with Haerts leading debuts at #66. Next week’s chart should make things more interesting, with potential debuts due to new singles from Calvin Harris and John Newman, Jamie Scott and Christina Perri, Nickelback, Fall Out Boy, Daughtry, Nick Jonas, and Walk The Moon.
Prince leads a healthy pack of fifteen debuts; plus, big movers from George Ezra and Taylor Swift.
Jamie Scott moves into the pole position, while Kimbra puts a pair of debuts into the top thirty and George Ezra returns to the chart with a new peak.
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.
