The Music Network Chart Wrap: February 3
This week sees Hozier hold #1 with Take Me To Church for its third week in a row since taking the top position in the first chart back of 2015. Mark Ronson remains at #2 with Uptown Funk featuring Bruno Mars since taking the position last week. Up at #3 from #4 is OMI’s Cheerleader, which is well on its way to #1 if the streaming and sales charts are anything to go off of, as well as the fact that it is being played the most on many of the high rating networks.
At #9, George Ezra’s Blame It On Me hits a new peak, moving up from #11 following a hasty jump into the Top 20 as airplay was significantly increased in the New Year. Also hitting a new peak this week, though falling short of the Top 10, is Robin Schulz’s new song Sun Goes Down featuring Jasmine Thompson, which hits #12 up from #27. It is very likely that we will be seeing this track break into the lower spectrum of the Top 10 come this week’s new chart.
This week’s fast movers include Hayden James’ Something About You, which is up at #24 from #46 and also made it into the most recent Most Added chart. Avicii’s The Nights enjoys a healthy jump from #39 to #26, Mashd N Kutcher’s Do It Now moves to #28 from #45 and Oliver Heldens’ Last All Night (Koala) is finally making its way up the chart from #62 to #49. This week’s most moved however, comes from Chet Faker’s Talk Is Cheap, which though already receiving increased commercial airplay in the new year, was no doubt boosted up by his recent appearance at #1 on triple j’s Hottest 100 list.
Three debuts take place this week in the Top 50. The first from Maroon 5’s Sugar, which enters at #31 following two consecutive weeks in the Most Added chart. Debuting at #42 is David Guetta & Sam Martin’s Dangerous and at #44 is Rhianna, Kany West & Paul McCartney’s Four Five Seconds which was last week’s Most Added song to radio.
