Jason falls away, Coldsmokers take the bronze for another week, and Nicki’s No Frauds comes in second as Calvin Harris’s Slide holds on to #1 for a second week running. Notably, I haven’t bought the track yet, it’s made it to the top spot from streaming alone. Swalla dips to #4 and becomes the joint longest-runner in the top 10 along with Una Healy’s Battlelines, reversing its drop from last week to grab another week there. Dreezy, J Sutta, and Cold War Kids’ Can We Hang On? rise to join last week’s holdovers, and are met by this week’s highest new entry at #10, 2017’s first Eurovision charter, Francesco Gabbani’s Occidentali’s Karma, which will compete for Italy this May. It’s already been making waves through Europe.

This week sees 14 other new entries as well as Gabbani; these come from, respectively, The Midnight, Inna, Era Istrefi, Duran Duran and Kiesza, Gaga, London Grammar, Paces, Pitbull and Leona Lewis (!), Brooke Candy, Airling, Vera Blue, Zhu, and another Eurovisioner, Latvia’s Triana Park. After so many dropouts for new entries this week and last, long-runners are thin on the ground; this week, Sophie Ellis-Bextor becomes the longest-running track in the chart (now there’s a phrase I didn’t think I’d be saying in 2017) with the #6-peaking Wild Forever.

Here’s the big list then now, the top 40 for this last week of March. Check out my further posts down below for new entry track videos, which I think due to the number, I’ll be splitting in two this week. Also feel free to check out my Spotify playlist!

A lot of changes in the chart as the season changes and it finally feels like spring this week. Inna, Era, and Pitbull and Leona Lewis bring a spot of sunshine, while the Eurovision tracks debuting so early make it feel later in the year than it is. And also I have some time off this week, so maybe that’s helping too!

Just over half of the chart has dropped out and been replaced by new entrants over the last two weeks, so anyone looking for some new tracks, take your pick. Hopefully some of you enjoy what I’m sharing here biggrin.gif

So without further ado, here’s a few of those new entries; I’ll make a second post to cover the rest later on!



Highest new entry this week goes to Eurovision. Tis the season...just about. Occidentali's Karma is a lot of fun, sung by the adorable slightly older man Francesco Gabbani, featuring a cute silly dance and a gorilla, as well as a really strong chorus hook. It's in Italian, but really, once you get into it, that doesn't matter. There's a version going around youtube right now with English subtitles, but honestly I prefer the original although I don't understand a word.



Second-highest new entry this week is also The Midnight's second entry ever. It compares pretty favourably and similarly to The 1975's slower moments, e.g. Change of Heart, This Must Be My Dream. Any fans of that band should check The Midnight out. I'd love to see them do well this year. Their retro 80s feel also reminds me of Phoenix and the TV show Stranger Things.



Inna returns with more of her usual fare, an interesting new take on a dance/party sound, classic party lyrics, a fun video, sun, and great costumes. It's a third consecutive charter for the Romanian on my personals following Heaven (#1) and Say It With Your Body (#3) from last year. It's not an instant song, but it grows on you strongly.



Following-up last year's hit BonBon, it's Era Istrefi. Era looks gorgeous and powerful in the video, and is singing in English. She's the latest of a wave of Albanian-Kosovan female singers to cross over, following the steps of Rita Ora, Bebe Rexha and Dua Lipa. It's less instant than BonBon, but a grower.



Gaga's fourth charter from the Joanne era, and the chart debut of any version of Million Reasons for me, despite Gaga's almost manic promo of the track. Altough I've enjoyed live performances, the studio version of the base song just doesn't compare. This remix by Andrelli really elevates it though. It's the producer's chart debut.



A delayed charter for Brooke Candy that released in 2016 but at a time when I was still obsessed with her previous release Changes. It's an interesting track with a stylized, cult-classic-esque video, and is another step in Brooke's evolution from trash rapper to mainstream girl rapper. The transformation deepens with her most recent track, Living Out Loud, which features Sia and should impact for me later this month.



My journey into the country pop crossover fandom continues in 2015. It's a journey started by Eurovision entrants The Common Linnets back in 2014 and Pink's You+Me album, and it's been an interesting ride. This is the chart debut for male-female country pop harmony group Little Big Town, and has a tone of wisdom to it. It lifts from their most recent album The Breaker.



The second remix to chart this week, this time by THRDL!FE. The remix speeds up and adds some bounce to London Grammar's second consecutive ballad release following Rooting For You, a top 10 on my charts. The original track may still grow on me, but this one suits me more for now.



The long-awaited (by Leona fans) Leona-Pitbull collab finally materialised on the rapper's latest album, the newly released Climate Change. It's actually a pretty good song and could revitalise Leona's career if it makes it out the gates as a single. I've been saying for years that she should be doing features as she has exactly the qualities to do well that route; a great voice and little to no identity of her own, so can slot in anywhere. Good to see her going for it.

More of these to come. If you have comments or thoughts, I'd love to hear em! biggrin.gif

Hiya Jupiter!

Calvin doing well here then, looking forward to his upcoming collab?

Busy week! That Occidentali song is really weird especially with the video but I quite like it, great to see Gimme Gimme debut, such a fun track.

Pitbull x Leona is certainly an eye-raising collab!

Nice chart.

Hey Jupiter! Here's what I like from your chart:

01 Calvin Harris ft. Frank Ocean + Migos - Slide [20-10-1-1] Must admit I'm not fully on board with this, I don't mind it but I prefer his club bangers.
03 Chainsmokers & Coldplay - Something Just Like This [34-15-3-3]
04 Jason Derulo ft. Nicki Minaj - Swalla [34-3-2-2-4] Kinda growing on me, I find it both anonying and catchy in equal measures lol
13 The Weeknd - I Feel It Coming [36-16-13]
20 Steps - Scared Of The Dark [37-20] Nice climb! If only they'd achieved that same climb officially last week...
23 Lorde - Green Light [37-23-23]
24 ALMA x Branchez - Dye My Hair [28-34-24]
35 Lana Del Rey - Love [12-6-5-4-35] WTF at that crazy fall from No. 4?!? Did you just totally go off it? unsure.gif

Good stuff smile.gif

Hi Jupiterrrr

liking this chart lots- Calvin's best song in ages #1, eurovision stuff (Occidentali's Karma is easily one of the highlights)

should hear that one from The Midnight, based on the two great tracks they had in the buzzjack song contest

Part 2 of video links! Thanks for all your comments, I feel very popular :3 - I will get to replying to them smile.gif



From a newly-released remix EP that appeared in my Spotify recommendations, comes the unlikely combination of Canadian 2014 one-hit wonder Kiesza (yes, sheís trying to build on it) and 1980s band Duran Duran. Itís a great track, sounding both retro and modern, and even better on the remix by Louis Vivet which is the version that caught me the most. Really reignited my interest in all the artists involved. It definitely sounds like a soundtrack song too, they should license it.



Straight from the alt-electronica Majestic Casual stable, this one. Esther Sparkles (great name!), the vocalist, is a new name to me, but itís just another charter for Paces, whoís previously appeared alongside Kucka and Chela. A little bit of research shows the Australianís also produced remixes for, among others, Years and Years, and Ou Est Le Swimming Pool, who Iíve seen mentioned on here before.



Second Eurovision charter so far this year goes to Latviaís Triana Park. Odds-wise, thereís already questions over whether this will make it to the main event through the semis (unlike Occidentaliís Karma above, which auto-Qs), but itís one of the first entries to really gel with me. Line runs the line between electro and edgy, slightly rocky, a bit similar to Dragonette or the Veronicas.



Possibly Vera Blueís first charting appearance. Sheís one of a few acts I often get mixed up, along with Luna Blake, Luna Aura, Luna Shadows, and Verite. They fish in quite similar pools. This oneís a bit more active and upbeat, striking, than the usual thoughtful indie tracks the group put out.



Airlingís debut solo charter after previously appearing on tracks by #1 Dads and Japanese Wallpaper. Itís pretty typical early indiegirl material, chilled out, with light indie-synth intstrumentation, probably falling somewhere under dream pop. It's cute.



This is Zhuís first charter for a while. The media-shy producer recently collaborated with AlunaGeorge and usually features guest singers on his tracks that chart for me, but this oneís a rare solo credit. It's pretty similar to something the Chemical Brothers would put out.

And thatís (finally!) the week! Please comment if you have thoughts! Comments make me smile! biggrin.gif
