Laura Mvula is steady at #1, with Lissie’s “Daughters” up a spot to #4 and Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Run Away With Me” back into the top ten. Rihanna scores a third top-twenty single from ANTI as lead, Drake-featuring single “Work” moves 25-19, joining “Kiss It Better” and “Close To You.” Dua Lipa makes it a second week with a pair of big leaps for “Be The One” (#20) and “Last Dance” (#31), the latter just ahead of the second re-entry for Kelly Clarkson’s “Piece By Piece” and the week’s highest debut, “Love Me Like That” by The Knocks featuring Carly Rae Jepsen. Jepsen’s Fuller House theme rendition, “Everywhere You Look,” debuts as well, as do new selections by The 1975, Yuna featuring Usher, Tove Lo, Javier Colon, Kris Allen, Miike Snow, and Miguel.

After seven weeks at the top, Adele’s “Hello” leaves the pole position for Cam’s “Burning House” to take over. Taking the top in its 27th week on the chart, it becomes the song with the longest ascent to #1 in chart history. Adele holds positions 2-4, with Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Run Away With Me” rounding out the top five. Another version of “Burning House,” by EZA and Aaron Krause, leaps 36-7 in its second week. “Can’t Let Go” becomes the fourth song from 25 to reach the top ten, while Sophia Somajo and Fleur East both enter the top twenty. The highest debut of the week is “80’s Mercedes,” the first of three entries this week from Maren Morris’s self-titled debut EP; Majid Jordan, American Authors, another song from Cam’s Untamed, and Pony Pony Run Run also debut.
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.
Unsurprisingly, Adele moves into the top spot with “Hello” after debuting at #3 last week, unseating Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Run Away With Me” after twelve weeks at the top. It’s Adele’s fourth chart-topper, following “Rolling In The Deep,” “Someone Like You,” and “Skyfall.” Jepsen and Sara Bareilles each move down a spot to fill out the top three. Cam moves into the top five with “Burning House,” while Andrew Ripp rebounds to a new peak of #8 for “Hole In My Heart.” While DNCE’s debut single “Cake By The Ocean” sits just outside the top ten, they nab the top debut with SWAAY EP track and likely follow-up single “Pay My Rent,” in at #47. The rest of the debuts are led by a new Waitress cut from Bareilles, a pair of Andrew Ripp debuts (and a re-entry for “Animal”), and another Carrie Underwood album track.
Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Run Away With Me” makes it a sixth week at the top, as the rest of the top five holds steady. Just below, Walk The Moon holds at #6 with “Shut Up And Dance,” which enters its second year on the chart: having debuted on September 14, 2014, this is its 53rd week charting. Also notable: it has yet to leave the top ten, having debuted at #9 and ascended to #1 in twenty-one weeks.
Finish Ticket gets the two highest debuts this week, with “Color” in at #18 and “Scavenger” not far behind at #30, along with two more entries in the lower half of the chart. They beat out new tracks from Rachel Platten, Christine and the Queens featuring Tunji Ige, Pentatonix, and a pair each from Maddie & Tae, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Troye Sivan.
