Chart At A Glance

  • Matthew West claims #1 for a 2nd week with “The Motions”, holding off Mainstay’s “Become Who You Are”
  • RED rebounds to #4 with “Pieces”, as The Fray rebounds to #6 with “You Found Me”
  • The week overall is quiet, except for a surprise bound by Jon Foreman; “Your Love Is Strong” rises from #46 to #19 after spending months seemingly stuck near the bottom of my chart
  • Few songs move below my Top 25, but, 1 song does debut, “My Last Amen” by downhere, at #43

Top 50

For visual browsers only, Bullets (e.g., ▲ and ▼) appear on songs seeing a gain or loss of interest, regardless of movement. Upward bullets show gains—white for slight gains, aqua for high, and gold for very high. Downward bullets show losses—grey for slight losses, purple for high, and black for very high. “Jump Of The Week” and “Fall Of The Week”, when present, indicate songs with the biggest change in interest. Finally, songs below #50 become recurrents after 25+ weeks charting, or after 40+ weeks if they never peaked above #26. For more details, see my chart methodology.
