In her fourth week on the chart, Gaga completes her ascension to the top, The Cure becoming her first #1 and highest-peaking track since I started these charts in 2016. It’s her fifth top 40 track since she started the Joanne era, following Perfect Illusion, John Wayne, Diamond Heart, and Andrelli’s remix of Million Reasons. Chainsmokers dip to #2 after three weeks at the summit.

Wale with Major Lazer and Dua Lipa, and Katy Perry’s Bon Appetit are newies into the top 5 this week. I’m still holding out hope for the Wale track to be a slow burner in the official chart, the names involved are high-profile and the sound of the track is really on trend for summer 2017. Bon Appetit I’m more mixed on, it’s a good radio song, but Katy’s newly released video for it, featuring herself being cooked in lavish detail is at best unusual, and at worst, extremely offputting. Charli XCX this week also manages a double in the top 10 on collabs with Uffie and Whethan.

New entries this week are more restrained than they have been, as the floods of new music finally abate a little, allowing tracks to have more natural chart runs. Paramore and the Naked and Famous re-enter, and there’s brand new entries from Keke Palmer, Blondie, Jones, Biffy Clyro, Imagine Dragons, New Kids on the Block (!), Syn Cole, YVE 48, and the official UK #1, Despacito – although not the Bieber version, I’ve been preferring the original without the English lyrics.

Look out for my later posts in this thread for some new entry links and commentary!

Hi Jupiter!

I seem to be in the minority with The Cure as not a huge fan of it myself, I expect I'll still like a decent amount of her new album!

Excellent to see Despacito enter here, really loving that atm!

Oh and to answer your question about BJSC last week, basically everyone who enters a song gets split into 2 Semis where you have to rank your top 10 out of roughly 30-35 tracks depending on turnout. The top 20 from each advance to a final where you then rank your top 15! It sounds time consuming and that was what put me off it initially but it really isn't & is a whole load of fun where you're bound to discover some amazing songs you otherwise wouldn't, so yeah I'd recommend it if you fancy happy.gif

Finally the flood of new entries abates, bringing us down to a respectable 7 this week and a lot more shuffling of everything that carries over. Tinashe's Flame, pipped to the post for #1 a few consecutive weeks, becomes this week's longest runner, notching up an impressive 6th week on the chart and within the top 20. It's a track I'm still surprised I ended up liking so much as I've been a fan of Tinashe since her alt R&B days, when she gave the impression she wouldn't be seen dead singing a pure pop song. Still, if you can do it, go for it.

Some new peaks this week; Carly Rae Jepsen's Fever gives her another top 20 to add to her pre-existing long tally from Emotion and Emotion Side B, Foster the People's Pay The Man becomes their first top 20 of the year, and Cardiknox's Perfect Storm hits the top ten, giving them a three for three record from three charted tracks thus far. Paramore also re-peak on re-entry with Hard Times, which reaches the staggering heights of #28 this week. I'm liking what I'm hearing on the album though, so expect more - and higher-peaking - tracks to come from them in 2017.

As for the brand new entries:



Ah, Despacito. It's another one I got into after hearing it at work a lot. Because I listen to Irish radio a lot instead of British, sometimes you get slightly different things, and we largely managed to avoid the Bieber version - well, until now, when it's everywhere - and that's let me enjoy the original Spanish version. I've no idea what the song's about really or what the lyrics are - and I'm pretty happy with that tbh, I'm a K-Pop fan and that basically works on the same principle. Knowing that 'despacito' means 'slowly' though definitely helps you appreciate the way they sing the title in the chorus - a nice touch. The success of this one has got me looking into similar music; as a result, Shakira's recent Spanish comeback track Chantaje should be charting for me next week. This year is certainly interesting, musically anyway, with dancehall, disco, and latin foreign language music all coming back from the grave. Who saw that coming?



Keke Palmer, what a mix of talents. Unlike a lot of people, I first came across her in music with last year's Hands Free, a song with a high-budget, high-concept video and on point production that seemed to be crying out to be a hit. Alas, it wasn't to be. It put Keke on my radar though, landing her a top 10 and making me eager to see what she came up with next. This is what she's come up with. It's not bad, not as good as Hands Free, but pretty catchy. Quavo of Migos is here too, a choice that will probably help it be more successful Stateside. Outside of music, Ms. Palmer's better known as a comedy actress, bizarrely enough, working in roles with a style very different to her musical persona. She's currently most known for successful horror-comedy Scream Queens, where she plays Zayday Williams.



LissA seems to be settling in for a good year. The up-and-coming German singer previously appeared on my charts alongside The Him earlier this year, at which point after a bit of research I found out she was really putting her all into doing dance features to get her name out there. I like her voice, so I decided to check out some of her other tracks and came across this nice wee one. It's a smooth midtempo with similar production to Lost Frequencies' Are You With Me, and gives producer YVE 48 a debut on my personals. LissA has another song coming out soon with Mome of last year's hit Aloha fame, so one to watch out for.



Really found myself loving this one. Syn Cole's been on my radar since 2015, when I really started to go back to EDM after a few years of only really listening to guitar and some synthy indie. My previous taste of Syn Cole was on It's You, a pumping, high energy Galantis style workout track, which is why I was surprised that this one turned out to be a more Alan Walker style slow song. It's really lush though, within touching distance of those early 2000s sweet DnB-pop crossover ballads, with a more modern 2017 production and arrangement - not a million miles away from Britney's #1 Everytime either. It's also reminiscent of liquid and chillstep tracks which I'm a big fan of. A real nice change of direction. And at only 20k views so far, criminally underappreciated.



I've been a Biffy fan for probably about ten years now since I first heard them on late-night radio 1 during the Puzzle era, their fourth album. The band are up to album 7 now, dropping a new one every 3-4 years. Fifth album Only Revolutions redefined their career in the UK, levelling them up to one of our most consistent rock bands - although unfortunately since '09, that doesn't mean quite as much as it used to. This is their third charter for me since I started these charts in 2016, coincidentally when they released their last album Ellipsis. Lead single Wolves of Winter didn't catch me at the time, but tracks Medicine and Flammable have been previous top 30 hits. Time will tell how this one does.



Jones has been on my radar for a while. She's a British indie/soul girl, falling into a similar remit as Nao, Lapsley and Izzy Bizu. Like Izzy, she's worked with Honne in the past, a band that always seemed poised to be the next big thing but never quite went all the way. I played Jones' track Deep a lot in 2015 and last year Wild, from her debut album New Skin was a personal chart top 5 and made it into my top 100 of 2016. I'm going through the album this year and this is the first track off it to really gel with me. Lots of good tracks there, I'd recommend checking it out on itunes or spotify.



Not a lot to say about this one. It's lifted from an upcoming New Kids on the Block EP, as the veteran band promote their new tour with Paula Abdul and Boys II Men. It's not a bad track, very modern production with the same 90s style ballad vocal the band are known for - just updating their sound for a new era. Going with the title though, I think it's more a thankyou to their fans than the start of anything new for them. It's a good wee track though, and I'm always happy when an older group release something solid instead of falling by the wayside.



Imagine Dragons and I have a mixed history. I've always thought I'm probably just that little bit too old for them, as the sound they debuted with, I remember being done very similarly by other bands. I imagine if it was the first time you were hearing it though, they'd seem exciting and groundbreaking. The kind of band young teens and preteens would get really into. I'm liking their newer material more though. Thunder becomes their second charter for me following last year's Levitate, which landed just one place higher than this one's debut.

That's the lot for this week. Feel free to chime in if you've comments or liked a particular song, or got any recs for things I might like wink.gif

Despacito enters this week then, and I see Paramore gets a re-entry too. smile.gif
