Chart Notes:For the week ending 1/6:* I will be wrapping up my top 40 today. Make sure you check it out here.
* Whatchugot leapfrogs over the competition thereby making Caro Emerald the first Dutch woman to ever hit ##1 on the list.
* Cardi B gets her second top 10 after hitting #1 with Bodak Yellow. Bartier Cardi is also waiting just outside the wings at #11.
* Dolly Parton's remake of her own Jolene nabs her the first top ten appearance she's ever had. A week from now, she turns 72, which makes her the second oldest woman (after fellow country star Loretta Lynn) to have a top ten on my list.
Retro is only three years back today, and we see Sia at the top with what was her first ever #1 on my list -s he's hit #2 three times prior, but it was a song from the remake musical Annie that propelled her to the top. Movies have had a tradition of yielding a #1 in January (see Remember Me last week) and Sia benefited from that. Bouncing back up was Uptown Funk, which had hit #1 the previous November. And one of my great regrets is that Blank Space topped out at #2 behind the forgettable Bright Lights, which would hit number one the following week.
