Portugal is Almost the Man


In their 37th week since release Portugal The Man move to a new peak position although still 900 points behind the juggernaut that is Pink. “What About Us” does erode some but with “Feel It Still” only gaining modestly I expect she will continue at #1 for at least 1 more week. The next #1 may not even be in the top 5 right now. Outside the top 5, Ed Sheeran and Camilla Cabello are possible challengers.

Rita Ora makes a nice splash into the top 25 with “Anywhere”, up 178-25. The other movers into the top 25 belong to St. Vincent, Noel Gallagher and Charlie Puth.

For the 1st time in a long time a song enters the top 100 out of the box. At #98 the collab between Selena Gomez and Marshmello “Wolves” receives 18 adds, tying Rita Ora for most added over the last 2 weeks. There are other big moves into the top 100 including MGMT 1s song in 4 years at #38, the 3rd entry from Clean Bandit this year at #60, Franz Ferdinand at #74 (1st in 3 years) and the rock supergroup A Perfect Circle at #86 (again 4 years since last release).
