The chart takes a quiet week, with a stagnant top ten and few notable jumps. Worth noting, however, is a milestone at #1: Walk The Moon’s “Shut Up And Dance” notches its twentieth week at the top, one of the chart’s longest runs ever. The Weeknd makes the highest debut with his first solo song to chart, “Can’t Feel My Face,” in at #57. New songs from Beck, Maddie & Tae, Kacey Musgraves, Keith Urban, Joy Williams, Wrabel, and AIR BAG ONE also enter, as well as newcomer Scavenger Hunt.
R5 moves into the top ten with “Let’s Not Be Alone Tonight,” which jumps from #12 to #7. Adam Lambert (“Evil In The Night,” 42-32) scores the first of several double-digit jumps, also achieved by biggest movers Sage The Gemini and Nick Jonas (“Good Thing,” 94-37) as well as two more Lambert tracks (“Underground,” 56-43 and “Another Lonely Night,” 98-99), Joy Williams (“Until The Levee,” 59-44 and “What A Good Woman Does,” 97-75), POWERS (“Beat Of My Drum,” 79-45), ROMANS (“Uh Huh,” 74-55), Alessia Cara (“Here,” 90-63), Sia (“California Dreamin’,” 91-65), and Thomston (“Expiry Date,” 88-74). Matt Nathanson lands the highest of seven debuts with “Gold In The Summertime” at #46.
The big story of the week on the chart is its fifteen debuts, led by new Adam Lambert album track “Evil In The Night” at #42. He and Joy Williams each score two debuts, Lambert also entering at #98 with “Another Lonely Night” and Williams launching two VENUS tracks, “Until The Levee” at #59 and “What A Good Woman Does” at #97. Newcomers to the chart include Gavin James, ROMANS, and POWERS; Thomston, Sia, and Zac Brown Band add new songs to their previous chart histories.
The top ten is completely static this Easter Sunday – in fact, the only movement in the entire top twenty comes from Delta Rae, who debuts at #14 with new After It All album track “Dead End Road” and pushes every other song down one spot. Delta Rae scores another three debuts ahead of their album release on Tuesday. AIR BAG ONE is the week’s big mover, up 41 spots to #46 this week; Carly Rae Jepsen’s new track “All That” enters just below at #47 following her debut of the track on Saturday Night Live. Jennifer Lopez, Allen Stone, Joy Williams, and SXSW alums Indevotion provide the week’s other debuts.
With another week of the top ten resting fairly stagnant, the week’s big movers are from newcomers charging toward the chart’s upper reaches. I Know Leopard makes a big jump from #87 to #21 in their second week on the chart with “Perfect Picture,” while Sinclair, One Direction, and Tor Miller all make double-digit jumps in the top fifty. The week’s new entries include a new track from Montaigne, whose first hit “I’m A Fantastic Wreck” also returns after peaking at #12 in July; a re-recorded version of Paramore’s self-titled album track “Hate To See Your Heart Break” featuring Joy Williams (formerly of The Civil Wars) also enters at #70. In addition, the chart gains new singles from Labrinth, The Neighbourhood featuring French Montana, and Olly Murs featuring Travie McCoy, along with newcomers Brayton Bowman and The Avener.
