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.
While the top ten holds steady, the bottom of the chart sees more activity, typical for the fourth quarter of the year. Ellie Goulding blasts in at #23 with the highest debut for Delirium album track “Codes,” beating out strong entries for Justin Bieber featuring Halsey and Alessia Cara featuring Sebastian Kole. Goulding and Cara each notch a second new entry, for “Around U” and “Overdose” respectively; A Great Big World and One Direction also add a pair of charting songs, while Meghan Trainor and Grizfolk add one apiece. Sara Bareilles and Jason Mraz have the biggest-moving song with “You Matter To Me,” up forty to #59, followed by big movers for Coldplay and Goulding. There’s a lot of movement just below the top 100 that could see entry next week…if it weren’t for chart-topper Adele’s 25 slated for release on Friday, which is likely to take over several slots on the next chart.
Adele holds for a second week at #1 with “Hello,” with Carly Rae Jepsen and Sara Bareilles steady in the top three. Bareilles is also the week’s biggest mover, as “Door Number Three” jumps from its #59 debut last week into the top twenty. (Speaking of the top twenty, a notable fact: Walk The Moon’s “Shut Up And Dance” exits the top twenty this week for the first time in its 61st week on the chart). Coldplay scores the highest debut of the week with A Head Full Of Dreams lead single “Adventure Of A Lifetime,” in at #55 ahead of Lissie’s “Hero” at #62. Additional debuts include new entries from xoV, Tori Kelly, and Alessia Cara.
Alessia Cara moves a second song, “Seventeen,” into the top five, while Sara Bareilles makes a big move into the top ten as “She Used to Be Mine” ascends 31-6 in its second week. Justin Bieber’s “What Do You Mean?” enters the top twenty. Sia brings the week’s highest debut as “Alive” begins at #32.
Carly Rae runs away with a fifth week at #1 while continuing to secure three other slots in the top ten. Felix Cartal and Nikki Yanofsky jump into the top five; Alessia Cara, Andrew Ripp, and Grace Mitchell all move into the top twenty. Inside the top fifty, Cam rebounds with a new peak for “Burning House” at #46; below, Maddie & Tae and Justin Bieber each make big climbs. EZA is the week’s highest debut, returning with a new single, “We Keep The Lights Out.” New tracks from Montaigne, Maddie & Tae, CRUISR, Grace Mitchell, and Max Frost also notch their first weeks, while Audien and Lady Antebellum’s collaboration “Something Better” returns to its original peak of #94.
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.”
