Adele holds the top spot with “Hello” while also moving “Water Under The Bridge” to a new peak of #3. Cam also rebounds again with “Burning House,” now in the runner-up spot. Alessia Cara moves her vocal collaboration with Sebastian Kole, “Stone,” into the top ten. Speaking of “Burning House,” EZA and Aaron Krause’s new cover of the Cam hit is the week’s highest debut at #36. CAFUNÉ scores a pair of entries from debut EP Love Songs For Other People, as does Troye Sivan from his album Blue Neighbourhood, while Cam gets another four from debut album Untamed.
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.
Much like what occurred with the release of 21 in early 2011, the entirety of Adele’s new album 25 debuts on the chart, with all but three songs in the upper half. “Hello” holds at #1 for a fourth week, while “When We Were Young” at #4 and “Water Under The Bridge” at #6 lead her baker’s dozen of debuts. Despite the Adele domination, One Direction adds another four debuts to their tally; Troye Sivan and newcomers MØ and Secret Weapons also enter.
Adele sails in at #3 with “Hello,” the highest debut since Alabama Shakes’s “Don’t Wanna Fight” also scored a #3 debut early in the year. Troye Sivan’s “Talk Me Down” is the greatest gainer of the week, jumping 50-21. Carrie Underwood marks the next-highest new entry, as Storyteller cut “Relapse” enters at #29; new songs from One Direction and Ellie Goulding also make the top 50.
