      • I think it's so cute to see these random Glee Cast songs pop up once in awhile. What causes you to go back to them rather than the original song? I think outside of their Christmas songs, I don't think I've revisited them even though I loved that show. I stayed with it until the bitter end.

        You have my favorite Mariah song of the decade at #1 in your latest chart

        Interesting that all the Ari songs are from previous albums and not from her latest.

          In a lot of cases, the Glee Cast cover of a song may have been my first encounter with the track, and in several other instances, I just prefer the Glee Cast interpretation to the original. I kinda grew up on Glee, too. Listening to their music takes me back to those high school/early college years.

          I think "Caution" is her sexiest song ever, so that's a good pick!

          I do like Ari's latest album, but none of the songs reach the heights of "Breathin" or "God Is a Woman" for me.

                That's my favourite Gaga song, too! "Relax" is probably in my top 5 most-played Mika songs.

                          • Great to see Madonna's Like A Prayer making a comeback in the week of its 30th anniversary.

                            And of course great to see my #1 Before I Let Go by Guy Sebastian entering your chart.

                            • Hello Akini

                              01.(NE) Lizzo - Juice (Hot Shot Debut)

                              Well gosh at this. Amazing to see Lizzo being your hot shot debut for the week. The UK charts need to take note of our #1 right now. So happy that you made this discovery. <3

                              05.(NE) Lewis Capaldi - Someone You Loved

                              Not gonna lie, i heard Lewis Capaldi's track Grace back in January and wasn't impressed. It wasn't so much the song but the fact that, imo, he sounded a bit too much like James Arthur. I kinda feel stupid about it now but at the time i was thinking "we've already got James Arthur, does the music industry really need a copycat clone version?". Having heard the rather beautiful Someone you loved my opinion started to change. It might've even charted higher initially had i not had those reservations over whether i could take a James Arthur soundalike seriously. But i slowly succumbed to the songs charm and now i think its simply a really beautifully written ballad. I'd even say i like this more than James Arthur's own Say you won't let go as a comparison.

                              06.(NE) Grace Carter - Heal Me

                              Aww, i love the fact my entire top 3 have all successfully entered in the same chart. <3 I adore this song too and i'd love to see Grace performing this track on more tv shows, just to give the song more of a presence and profile as i suspect there are many people out there who would love this song, but haven't heard it because there's a lack of airplay on radio stations. :(

                              20.(NE) Guy Sebastian - Before I Go

                              Ohh this has passed me by completely. Listening now and i'm liking it. I've added this to my list of potential chart entries for my next chart.

                              Best of the rest:

                                  Yeah, "Like a Prayer" is a phenomenal song. It's going to age like fine wine.

                                  Thanks for introducing me to it!

                                  Well gosh at this. Amazing to see Lizzo being your hot shot debut for the week. The UK charts need to take note of our #1 right now. So happy that you made this discovery. <3
                                  Yeah, it was such an instant sell for me! I watched the video, too, and enjoyed it.

                                  Not gonna lie, i heard Lewis Capaldi's track Grace back in January and wasn't impressed. It wasn't so much the song but the fact that, imo, he sounded a bit too much like James Arthur. I kinda feel stupid about it now but at the time i was thinking "we've already got James Arthur, does the music industry really need a copycat clone version?". Having heard the rather beautiful Someone you loved my opinion started to change. It might've even charted higher initially had i not had those reservations over whether i could take a James Arthur soundalike seriously. But i slowly succumbed to the songs charm and now i think its simply a really beautifully written ballad. I'd even say i like this more than James Arthur's own Say you won't let go as a comparison.
                                  Yeah, sometimes when an artist doesn't seem original enough, that can be a big turn-off, though James Arthur is not memorable enough for me to even notice someone similar to him. Cool that Lewis has grown on you, though. It's great that it only took two months for him to deliver a follow-up worthy to remove himself from James's shadow.

                                  Aww, i love the fact my entire top 3 have all successfully entered in the same chart. <3 I adore this song too and i'd love to see Grace performing this track on more tv shows, just to give the song more of a presence and profile as i suspect there are many people out there who would love this song, but haven't heard it because there's a lack of airplay on radio stations. :(
                                  Yeah, I agree with you on this!

                                  Ohh this has passed me by completely. Listening now and i'm liking it. I've added this to my list of potential chart entries for my next chart.
                                  I have RayRay to thank for introducing me to "Before I Go". Guy is a pretty solid singles act for me. It's rare that I hear a single of his and dislike it.

Because I'll always associated Black Panther with "Pray for Me", I think "Pray for Me" has the edge largely due to that reason alone.
                                              Ah, that makes perfect sense: both are incredibly strong soundtrack singles, but one is attached to a FAR stronger film - hence the upper hand.

Obviously, she's versatile, and can give you pop, R&B, soul, dancehall, reggae, country, soft rock, hip/hop, and folk bops on any given album, but the prevailing genre is pop.
                                              Shameful as it may be, it seems like a pretty clear example of how the "black artist = R&B/Hip-hop music" association/assumption is still alive and kicking...

                                              Whaaaat? I really thought that I'd completely dropped the ball/missed the opportunity to win you over back when we were discussing "Imagine" after I sent it to No. 1, so this is TRULY heartwarming to hear!

                                              • I don't remember if it was you or Jake (or both) who called your new No. 1 "snappy," but that is SUCH a fitting descriptor! Although Fan had the single art as his avatar for a while, I didn't actually give it a listen until its recent coronation on Jake's chart.
                                              • Is the "Roulette" re-entry your way of letting Katy know "give us more tunes like this, less like '365,' please"? I was revisiting Witness last week, and I still feel like "Bon Appétit" and "Swish Swish" were done a disservice (Migos's homophobia aside, but I'm sure that wasn't why the public passed on it when it was a single).

                                                  Yep! Did you hear that "Shallow" is apparently the most-awarded song in music history now?

                                                  Yep! I wish that tired stereotype would die, but there are a lot more ahead of it in the line!

                                                  Yeah, the song just kinda clicked with me!

Although Fan had the single art as his avatar for a while, I didn't actually give it a listen until its recent coronation on Jake's chart.
                                                  I think both Jake and I did, but so happy to hear you like it!

I was revisiting Witness last week, and I still feel like "Bon Appétit" and "Swish Swish" were done a disservice (Migos's homophobia aside, but I'm sure that wasn't why the public passed on it when it was a single).
                                                  Maybe!

                                                  I really adore "Like a Prayer" so much. It's such a damn phenomenal song!

                                                  "The Greatest" is probably my fave Sia song (where she is the lead act; "Titanium" will forever be the greatest thing she's done). "Chandelier" isn't far behind, though.
