It’s like Magic


After 10 weeks in the runner-up position Bruno Mars conjures up the magic to reach #1. Next week may see some shaking up with 5 of the top 10 losing points although ’24K Magic’ could sustain a second week in the top spot if Adele or The Weeknd don’t have enough forward movement. “Rockabye” should see an aboutface in the top 10 with U.S. airplay increasing, currently in the pop airplay top 25. Of course Zayn & Taylor Swift or Ed Sheeran could be threats within the next 2 weeks.

Of Sheeran’s 2 top 100 debuts I prefer less poppy, more folky “Castle On The Hill” which both both musically and lyrically moving. Contender for song of the year Grammy 2018, perhaps.

Fellow Brits Little Mix move 94-27 with the second single, “Touch”  from their current album. IMO better than ‘Shout Out’ although my fav so far is “You Gotta Not”.
