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.
In its 23rd week at the top, Walk The Moon’s “Shut Up And Dance” sets a record for the highest number of chart weeks at #1, surpassing the previous 22-week record set by Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep.” (In the earliest days of my personal chart, Ricky Martin and Christina Aguilera’s “Nobody Wants To Be Lonely” reigned for a total of 41 weeks at #1 in 2002, though only over five charts, as I was not yet compiling them on a weekly basis.) Meanwhile, Carly Rae Jepsen moves into the top ten with “E·MO·TION.”
The week’s highest debut comes from former chart-topper Martin Luke Brown, whose new song “Scars On Scars” enters at #68. New singles from Grizfolk, Demi Lovato, Hunter Hayes featuring Lady Antebellum, and Jess Glynne also enter, as does newcomer FLETCHER and a new album cut from both Kacey Musgraves and Tori Kelly.
