Anthony’s Weekly Top 50 Archives

#386: May 15 - 21, 2011

Chart At A Glance

  • Francesca Battistelli reaches my Top 5 with “This Is The Stuff”, even as it fizzles at radio. Laura Story’s “Blessings” stays perched on top
  • There’s not a whole lot of movement inside my Top 25, but there is 1 debut, JJ Heller’s new single, “Control”, at #23
  • Further down, rapper Flame scores his first Top 50 debut (and quite possibly the first Christian rap song on the chart), “Surrender” at #38
  • The debuts displace MercyMe’s “Beautiful”; the song never managed to crack my Top 25, but still had a decent run. Can MercyMe do better with their new single, “Move”, however? Time will tell, if it’ll be a big chart-mover
  • So many new songs are “waiting in the wings”; time will tell if any of them can reach the Top 50

Top 50

Rank This WeekRank Last WeekSong Title, by Artist
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.
