Phillip Phillips drives for 3 milestones this week with his new single “Miles”. The single debuted on HAC and AAA last week and this week, moves into the top 30 and top 40 respectively in those formats. In addition, it debuts this week on the AC chart.

“The Fighter” still has some fight in it as this Carrie Underwood duet moves into the top 15 on AC. The song started out on Country where it went to number one and is currently charting on two mainstream formats. Also on AC, we have James Arthur’s break-out hit “Say You Won’t Let Go” returning to the top 5

Finally on Country, we have another collaboration making milestones. Lauren Alaina teamed up with Kane Brown for “What Ifs” and it moved into the top 10 this week.

If it seems like your favourite song has slowed down on Pop or HAC, it probably has. Taylor Swift released a new single and “Look What You Made Me Do” is eating all the spins. The song debuted Friday and is already top 18 on Pop and top 16 on HAC. The daily spincreases would be considered great weekly increases. In the first three hours of release on iTunes, the song sold 100K. The woman knows how to drop a song.

Billboard confirms that Brand New’s “Science Fiction” is the number one album of the week. It is the first Indie album to top the BB200 this year.
