Back-to-back chart-toppers (2/27a)
Fresh off a performance at the BRITS, The Chainsmokers & Coldplay’s single “Something Just Like This” (Disruptor/Columbia) tops the list of Biggest Movers on the USA and U.K. Shazam Top 100 charts. While new singles are getting plenty of tags, NBC’s This is Us is shaping up as TV’s newest jukebox hero.
The BRIT Awards, which had an average of 5.4m TV viewers in Blighty on Wednesday, has further moved the needle for a host of acts dominating the Top 5 Official Singles and Albums spots mid-week. But it’s British breakthrough grime star Stormzy leading a very tight race for #1.
And the winner is...uh, scratch that. This will certainly go down as one of the more memorable Oscar ceremonies of all time due to that crazy flub with Best Picture, but the spirited opening performance by Justin Timberlake has certainly moved the needle at iTunes for the nominated song "Can't Stop the Feeling."
