Sara Bareilles’s “She Used To Be Mine” continues its ascent, climbing from 6 to 2 in its third week. Justin Bieber, Finish Ticket, and Ellie Goulding all move up within the top twenty, while Cam enters for the first time with “Burning House” and ROMANS moves back in with “Uh Huh.” Tinashé’s first chart entry, “Player,” is the week’s highest debut, with the fast-moving HØØNCH’s debut single “Top” just below. Additional debuts include newcomers Dagny and Phoebe Ryan and new songs from firekid and Tor Miller.
It’s a very E·MO·TION-al week on the chart for Carly Rae Jepsen, who notches a third week at #1 with “Run Away With Me.” With the entire top ten stagnant, the album’s title track and “I Really Like You” continue their hold on three of its ten spots. Most of the album enters the chart this week as well, led by “Let’s Get Lost” at #15. In other news, Felix Cartal’s collaboration with Nikki Yanofsky, “Something To Live For,” vaults from its #86 debut last week to #14. Gavin James, ROMANS, and Emily King score large jumps as well. Other debuts include two tracks from Grace Mitchell’s new Raceday EP, plus new tracks from Brayton Bowman, Carrie Underwood, BØRNS, newcomer Mackenzie Thoms, Céline Dion & Fred Pellerin, The Neighbourhood, Nick Jonas, Gorgon City featuring ROMANS, and JoJo.
Carly Rae Jepsen now holds two spots in the top five (as does Alabama Shakes), with “I Really Like You” holding at #3 and “E·MO·TION” jumping to a new peak of #4. Kacey Musgraves, Grizfolk, and Demi Lovato make big moves in the chart’s upper half. Also in the top fifty is Hunter Hunted’s “Lucky Day,” the highest debut of the week at #48. Wildhood follows with the next entry, debut single “Psycho Jam,” at #60; in the lower rungs, R5 (who also re-enters “All Night”), Rob Thomas, ROMANS, and AIR BAG ONE all score with new songs.
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.
