[Weekly KPOP Chart] 2nd Week of October 2021

Another week has passed and it is time to look back on it through the Weekly KPOP Chart. It has been a slightly busy week for me personally, though I have managed to push out a post each day (self pat on my back). Looking into the week ahead, it looks like it is going to be a busy week with seven comebacks from artists that I usually review. And per usual, I have a long list of other releases that I haven’t covered yet. Lots to do!

New song releases of the week

I have already reviewed ENHYPEN’s Tamed-Dashed and LIGHTSUM’s VIVACE, but we also saw a solo release by Donghae (from Super Junior) featuring Jeno (from NCT); a collaboration between Raiden, Taeil (from NCT) and LILBOI; and the comebacks of BLACKSWAN and TRI.BE (all of which I have yet to review).

Throwback Corner

Not too much of a throwback (and I actually have put this song down in this corner many weeks back), but NCT Dream’s Hello Future is this week’s ‘throwback’ song. I kept on listening to the song’s five member version, which the group (without Mark and Haechan) has been performing at festivals recently. The five member version is super good and deserves some attention, since the remaining five members (Jaemin, Renjun, Jeno, Chenle & Jisung) do an awesome job of covering for the missing members!

Non-Korean Release of the Week

Hint: this week’s non-Korean release was one of the songs reviewed in this week’s International Song Review post. Bonnie and Clyde, Yuqi’s (from (G)I-DLE) solo debut single, is this week’s feature song in this corner!

The Chart

Congratulations to Golden Child, who has topped this week’s Weekly KPOP Chart for the 2nd Week of October 2021, with their new release, DDARA! For more of the charts, continue scrolling down below!

[Weekly KPOP Chart] 1st Week of October 2021

Another week has flown by. This week was pretty much Golden Child week for me, as I spent a fair amount of my time writing reviews for their unit and solo releases ahead of their album review (posted yesterday in case you have missed it), when I could be writing reviews for other missed releases. I am actually going to repeat the same process for Stray Kids this week, reviewing their side tracks that have a music video before their album review next weekend. So, Stray Kids week, this week! I will try to get some other reviews out as well, as it looks like I am a bit freer (and its perfect weather to stay indoors this week – i.e. rainy), but we will see how I go. Other than that very quick update, here are the Weekly KPOP Charts for the 1st Week of October (yikes!).

New releases of the week

I have already reviewed ATEEZ’s Eternal Sunshine, CRAVITY’s VENI VIDI VICI and new singles from aespa, WOODZ, Youngjae, Golden Child. But here are the other releases of the week that I have not covered just yet.

  • My Love – LU4US
  • Kiss of Fire – WOODZ
  • Will Make A Mistake – BLITZERS
  • Sober – N.Flying
  • GAIA – CRAXY
  • GLASSY – Jo Yuri
  • Addicted PIXY
  • MADONNA – Luna (f(x))

Throwback Corner

So part of this week involved a Nine Muses binge, one of the most underrated groups of KPOP ever! Nine Muses gave us hit after hit, with 2013 being their biggest year (3 comebacks) and the closest to which they got to the top of the charts. I leave you today with my all time favourite track from the group, Wild.

Non-Korean Release of the Week

Technically, as it contains Korean lyrics, I would make the argument that this is a Korean release and so should not be part of this corner. But as it is more marketed towards the Western pop music industry (and was formally released by Coldplay), I have decided to include My Universe, Coldplay & BTS’ collaboration, as this week’s ‘Non-Korean Release of the Week’. But as there are Korean lyrics and a music video, a full review for My Universe will be posted in the coming weeks – not sure when is.

The Charts

Congratulations to Youngjae, as his solo debut title track, Vibin, has topped the charts for the 1st Week of October 2021!. For more of the charts, scroll down below.

[Weekly KPOP Chart] 5th Week of September 2021

A bit of a celebration occurred yesterday, as I marked 10 years of KPOPREVIEWED. Thanks once again for visiting and reading what I put out. But now we are back to business with reviews already coming out earlier today. And there is another review and album review coming out today (surprise!!). But I need to quickly post out the Weekly KPOP Charts for the last week before we proceed any further, so here we go!

New song releases of the week

This week, I reviewed new releases such as AB6IX’s CHERRY, Key’s BAD LOVE and Ciipher’s Blind, which also formed part of the new entries into the chart system this past week. The following songs have also been entered into the chart system and began their nine week run this past week:

  • Can’t Say Goodbye – 100%
  • Out of the Blue – Dowoon (DAY6)
  • Sick Of It – LUHA
  • Santa Monica – NIK
  • Dark Dream – E’LAST
  • ICONS – HOT ISSUE
  • Drama – NAUNGJAE
  • In My Space – Kim Woojin
  • Swipe – ITZY
  • STAY – Oh Sae Beom
  • Time Travel – Rhea
  • Starry Night – WEi

Throwback Corner

Nostalgic me was binging a lot of ‘old’ releases this week thanks to those ‘Looking Back’ posts that I used to reflect on 10 years! So many good songs to be put into this Throwback Corner, but I chose the one that I will never get tired of – Secert’s 2012 release of Poison.

The Charts

Congratulations to Key and his new single, BAD LOVE, for topping the charts for the 5th and final week of September 2021. For more of the charts, see below.

[Weekly KPOP Chart] 4th Week of September 2021

Another week has passed. And per my usual schedule, I look back on this week through my Weekly KPOP Chart post. Apart from a break and doing some adulting stuff, not much really happened this week. Hopefully, now that I am a bit refreshed, I can start looking at writing some other reviews for the releases that I have flagged that I will review. Also, two album reviews coming your way later tonight and that stuff I said I was working on behind the scene will be posted throughout this week. Until then, here is my Weekly KPOP Chart post for the 4th Week of September 2021.

Small update: only one album review will be published tonight. The other will be posted next weekend.

New song releases of the week

Aside from Yang Yoseob’s BRAIN and ITZY’s LOCO, there were a couple of other songs released this week that have been included in the charts for the next 8 weeks:

  • Let Me In – WJSN (Cosmic Girls)
  • Dimples – WOOSUNG (The Rose)
  • My Universe – Coldplay & BTS
  • Take Over – Do Hanse (VICTON)
  • DUN – Jeongmin (BF)

Throwback Corner

This week’s throwback song is B1A4’s What’s Happening?, which popped up randomly as a YouTube recommendation this week. And it began a B1A4 binge, which was quite enjoyable. Can’t wait to see who is next up on these binge sessions.

Non-Korean Release of the Week

I haven’t been listening to non-Korean songs lately. But I have picked it back up to listen to MONSTA X’s One Day, which is also my pick of non-Korean release of the week.

The Charts

Congratulation to PURPLE KISS and their latest song, Zombie, for topping the charts for the 4th Week of September 2021. For more of the charts, keep on scrolling down.

[Weekly KPOP Chart] 3rd Week of September 2021

Sliding this in before I start the week of reviews (which will all start tomorrow). For those who have missed it, I undertook an album review blitz over the weekend. 8 album reviews in total! Because of that, I have been taking a bit of a breather from the blog after that eventful (and stressful) weekend (a lot of naps, I must confess). I have also been working on some stuff behind the scenes for the month of October. Anyhow, since this post is a late one, it will also be a quick one.

The Charts

Congratulation’s to ATEEZ’s Deja Vu, for topping the charts in the past week. For more of the charts, scroll down below.

Songs leaving the charts this week

  • When Dawn Comes Again – Colde ft. Baekhyun (EXO)
  • Hey Kid, Close Your Eyes – AKMU with Lee Sun Hee

[Weekly KPOP Chart] 2nd Week of September 2021

Another busy week has passed and it is time for me to reflect on it via a Weekly KPOP Chart post! I don’t have much to update you with, other than that I have decided that next weekend will be a intensive album review weekend, so I can finally make some progress on that load of albums I have flagged that I will be reviewing. Otherwise, still in lockdown and still eating my weight in snacks (though I have balanced that out with a fruit salad binge – fresh though). Hopefully, I can have something more interesting to update you with next week!

New songs on the charts

In addition to the songs I have reviewed this week (Young K and Lisa’s solo debuts, the comebacks of STAYC and PURPLE KISS, and the collaboration release between HyunA and DAWN), a whole bunch of other releases have been added to the charts, including:

  • Everything Is Because of You – CHOI (LU:KUS)
  • Goodnight, Summer – Sungmin (Super Junior)
  • GOTYA – ICHILLIN’
  • Run – LUMINOUS
  • Red Lipstick – Lee Hi ft. Yoo Mi Rae
  • mOnO – OnlyOnOf
  • CHEESE – Stray Kids (I also added The View to the charts as part of last week’s entries)
  • All unit releases from Golden Child’s second studio album, Game Changer.

Throwback corner

I spent a lot of my week listening to Infinite, B1A4, Sonamoo and Oh My Girl for some unknown reason. They just popped into my autoplay and I told myself ‘why not?’. So I had a lot of choice this week to decide who to feature in the Throwback Corner of this post.

Ultimately, I have decided to feature Sonamoo and their single Friday Night. They are the lesser known group out of the four that I listed, so let’s give them a shoutout!

The Charts

Congratulations to Stray Kids, once again, for rising to the top of the charts for the 2nd Week of September 2021 with Thunderous. They were last in the top spot for the final week of August with the same song. For more of the charts, scroll down below.

[Weekly Chart] 1st Week of September 2021

And we begin September! It has felt like time has been going by so quickly lately, even though I am stuck at home (still in lockdown 😟). With my move officially completed (and I have a proper desk!), I will use my free time I have stuck at home to focus on the blog. I started this officially yesterday, with three reviews crossed off. And I will try my best to keep up with the constant releases and also the bouncing around to ‘old releases’. But before I can proceed forward, here are the Weekly KPOP Charts for the 1st Week of September 2021.

Please note I realized I had stuffed up the rankings changes (i.e. the status column) of last week’s Weekly KPOP Charts. The songs were in the right positions, just the numbers of spots that they dropped or increased by were incorrect. If you would like to look over the new information, please check out the post for the 4th Week of August 2021.

New releases of the week

I have only managed to get around to reviewing BTOB’s Outsider, fromis_9’s Talk & Talk and A.C.E’s Changer this week. But these aren’t the only three releases that were dropped during the week. Many other songs were released alongside those three (listed below). These songs are also eligible for placement on the charts and some will be reviewed some time in the future.

  • Hate That… – Key (SHINee) ft. Taeyeon (SNSD)
  • life vest – Kim Jeong Uk
  • Movin’ – MCND
  • Lemonade – Lee Eun Sang
  • MI CASA SU CASA – Heo Young Saeng (SS501)
  • Alive – ASTRO
  • Life Is Beautiful – ONEUS
  • LOOP – I.M (MONSTA X)
  • Not Friends – Ryan Jhyun & Heejin, Kim Lip, Jinsoul, Yves (LOONA)
  • Dizzy – W.A.O
  • Savior – Lee Hi ft. B.I.

Throwback Corner

I was in a Pentagon mood this past week. And Daisy was the most listened to song of the week on this Pentagon binge. Unfortunately, their recent release (Cerberus) just didn’t make it into this week’s binge session.

The Charts

Congratulations to BTOB, who recently released single, Outsider, had managed to clinch the top spot for this past week. For more of the charts, check out below.

[Weekly Chart] 3rd Week of August 2021

It is another Sunday and that simply means another Weekly KPOP Chart post. This particular post for the 3rd Week of August 2021 is going to be a very quick one, as I am in the processing of moving and am trying to beat the clock before the clouds move in and wash the sunshine away. So I won’t be doing my usual corners this week. Check back next week for those corners, maybe (still moving then, but hopefully more time on my hands).

Also, the KPOP Songs of the Summer Review Collaboration has wrapped up. I posted by review for F(x)’s Hot Summer earlier this week, so check that. In that post, you will also find the links to the rest of the reviews in the collaboration from other KPOP reviewers, so make sure you check out those reviews as well!

The charts

Congratulations to The Boyz, who topped the charts this 3rd Week of August 2021, with their latest track, THRILL-RIDE. For more of the charts, scroll down below:

[Weekly Chart] 1st Week of August 2021

Another week has wrapped up and it is time to look back through the Weekly KPOP Charts segment. The first week of August 2021 saw many groups and artists return already (more so than the last few weeks). And it is set to continue into this week. But before we get to the next week, there is still a bit of time for a Weekly KPOP Chart post (this post), an album review and maybe a song review (or two). So with that being said, I have a bit of work to do and focus on. So let’s get going!

New releases of the week

Already reviewed from this week is ASTRO’s After Midnight, Golden Child’s Ra Pam Pam, Jeon Somi’s DUMB DUMB, Weeekly’s Holiday Party and ONEUS’ Shut Up 받고 Crazy Hot!. I also have plans to review releases from Sunmi and Kim Woojin. Also released this week are songs from Thunder (aka Cheondung – former member of MBLAQ), the collaboration between KINDA BLUE and Hwasa (from Mamamoo), 2Z, Kang Insoo (member of MYNAME) and the SKYLE (a newly debut female group). All have been included in the charts from this week.

Throwback corner

BLOOM BLOOM POW! Ahead of their comeback tomorrow, I have been listening to a lot of The Boyz’s songs. One of them is Bloom Bloom, which was released back in 2019 and went on to earn them their first music show win. Is there any particular reason to why I have been listening to this song more than others this week? No reason. Just a revisit to their K:CONTACT stages.

Non-Korean KPOP release of the week

I finally got around to reviewing Perfect World (by TWICE) yesterday through an International Song Review post. It is once again my pick for the track of the week. In addition to TWICE’s latest release, I also released songs from ATEEZ, SHINee, Jackson Wang and Rocket Punch.

The Charts

Congratulations to ASTRO’s After Midnight, which just managed to get ahead of the all the tracks on the charts this week to clinch the win! For more of the charts, scroll down below.

[Weekly Chart] 4th Week of July 2021

It is another Sunday and that means it is time for another Weekly KPOP Chart. It was another relatively slow week and unfortunately I did not get around to reviewing much this past week. I will try harder, now that we are in a new month. Though, I will be prioritizing the newer releases since it seems like the last few weeks were the ‘calm before the storm’ and the ‘storm’ is the month of August. While I await for the influx of new releases, here is the latest edition of the Weekly KPOP Charts.

New releases from this past week

Aside from the two releases I reviewed this week (i.e. D.O’s Rose and Dream Catcher’s BEcause), the following releases were admitted into the Weekly Chart Segment for their nine week run:

  • NAKKA – AKMU ft. IU
  • Rose – D.O (EXO)
  • KISS OR DEATH – MONSTA X
  • So Silly – SAN E ft. Yuju
  • Christmas in July – KANGTA
  • Promise U – Solar & Moonbyul (Mamamoo)
  • DIVE – Jinyoung (GOT7)
  • BEcause – Dream Catcher
  • Stupid Love Song – AKMU ft. Crush
  • Tictoc Tictoc Tictoc – AKMU ft. Beenzino

Throwback corner

For this week, I was listening to a lot of SEVENTEEN. To me, Don’t Wanna Cry will always be a classic (is it too soon to determine what is a classic?). Hence, it is my pick for throwback song of the week.

Non-Korean KPOP release of the week

Another week of being addicted to Perfect World by TWICE. I will get to the International Song Review post, which will include TWICE’s latest Japanese release, later this week.

The Charts

Congratulations to D.O, who made his solo comeback this past week with Rose. It is also the number one song this week! There is also a number of big jumps up the chart this week, so keep on scrolling to see the rest of the charts!

[Weekly Chart] 3rd Week of July 2021

Apologies for the delay posting this and also the lack of reviews this week. I was busy on Sunday and only managed to get the album review out (as I am still very behind on those). I had a job interview on Tuesday, so I spent Monday night preparing for it. And the interview plus work drained my energy on yesterday, so I spent the entire evening sleeping after dinner (didn’t wake up until 2 am in the morning). But with some energy, I thought I share with you the Weekly KPOP Chart post for the 3rd Week of July 2021. As it is a late one, it will be a very quick one. Reviews will resume tomorrow night!

The Chart

Congratulations once again to SEVENTEEN, who has topped the charts with Ready To Love for the second week! Last week was a particular slow week (i.e. I only entered in two new songs), so you will see that a lot of ‘older’ songs jump up the charts last week. For more of the charts, scroll down below.

[Weekly Chart] 2nd Week of July 2021

Welcome to the latest instalment of the Weekly KPOP Charts. This one is for the 2nd Week of July 2021. It was one quiet week and this next one is the same, as well. This is the calm before the storm though, as when August rolls around, we will entering an explosion of comebacks and releases. I am worried. Don’t want to fall too far behind. So I will be spending this week writing reviews for more releases in which I should have written weeks ago. But until then, this Weekly KPOP Chart posts first and then an album review to follow, before we can get stuck into this ‘catch-up week’.

New songs of the week

I don’t think I reviewed any ‘new songs’ that were released this week. Instead, I focused on some releases from previous weeks (and I think that is the plan for this week, as I don’t see any major releases to review). But that being said, there were some new songs added to the charts this week, including: The Boyz’s Drink It, BOYHOOD’s Rain, Minzy’s Teamo, HA:TFELT’s Summertime, the latest collaboration between big names in the KPOP industry (i.e. Rain, MONSTA X, ATEEZ and Brave Girls) and Pepsi, and OnlyOneOf’s questiOn mark (which seemed to have flown in under the radar).

Throwback Corner

For this week’s throwback song, I take you back to 2012 with Sunny Hill, one of my favourite KPOP artists of all time. The song this time around is Princess and Prince Charming, which is a fun but meaningful song. Don’t let the looks of the music video and performance deceive you! Definitely Sunny Hill’s forte.

Non-Korean KPOP Release of the Week

Another week where I am addicted to TXT’s Magic. I also just posted my review for the side-track yesterday. Click here to read review and other non-Korean songs that I reviewed as well!

The Chart

For the second week of July 2021, SF9 emerged as the victorious artist with Tear Drop. Congratulations to SF9! For more of the charts, scroll down below.

[Weekly Chart] 1st Week of July 2021

After taking a break yesterday after that intensive weekend, I am back. Due to my focus on the rookie groups over the weekend, I was unable to post my Weekly KPOP Chart post, which I will now do before I progress with any further reviews. This Weekly KPOP Chart post is for the 1st Week of July 2021! The first week of the final half of the year. How crazy fast has the year gone. I think if we blink again, it will be December! But let’s slow down. Don’t blink before you read the Weekly KPOP Charts for the 1st Week of July 2021!

New releases from the past week

In addition to the releases from SF9 (Tear Drop), Even Of Day (Right Through Me) and Taeyeon (Weekend) that I did review last week, there was also releases from BXK, Kim Soyeon of (G)I-DLE, GIRLKIND, Yebin of DIA, Oh Sae Beom, Hyolyn, Kim Woojin and Moon Jongup.

It appears that this current week is a bit light on with releases, so I will be able to review some of these releases and the releases from previous weeks that I have yet to touch.

Throwback Corner

This week’s throwback song was a song released just over 10 years ago. It is also still one of my favourite KPOP releases to date and it is by one of my favourite groups of all time. It is Sunny Hill’s Midnight Circus!

Non-Korean KPOP Release of the Week

I have just renamed this section because I was unhappy with what I was calling it previously (‘Non-Korean Track of the Week’). Essentially, it has to be a song released by a Korean artist/group, but in a language other than Korean.

Last week, I mentioned TXT’s Magic as a contender for last week’s featuring. But I ultimately chose a new release to feature. This week, I have gone with the mentioned song as it was played nonstop all of last week! High recommend Magic! Check it out!

The Charts

The song and artist that tops the Weekly KPOP Chart for the 1st Week of July 2021 is Hello Future by NCT Dream! Congratulations to NCT Dream on another successful comeback and for such a great song! For more of the charts, scroll down below.

[Special] Number 1 Songs from July 2020 to June 2021

As we have already wrapped up another July to June period, it is time for me to recap a full year’s worth of Weekly KPOP Charts winners! These are the song that topped the Weekly KPOP Charts segment between July 2020 and June 2021. As a quick recap, I personally decide on these charts. Songs that I prefer rank higher as I tend to gravitate towards them more. You will see the same artists return to the top of the charts throughout the year. But I also tend to surprise myself when an unexpected artist top of the charts for a particular week. So let’s have this walk down memory lane and see who topped the Weekly KPOP Charts between July 2020 and June 2021.

[Weekly Chart] 5th Week of June 2021

I pause the current transmission of album reviews (more coming your way today!) with the Weekly KPOP Charts for the 5th Week of June 2021. I want to focus on album reviews for the rest of today, so I will get going with this post without anymore of the introduction. Remember that next weekend, I will be focusing on the many releases from newly debut groups from this year! Other than that, expect a few more album reviews today and the normal transmission of reviews starting tomorrow.

New songs released this week

Aside from the three releases I did review this week (i.e. 2PM’s Make It, LOONA’s PTT (Paint The Town) and NCT DREAM’s Hello Future), a record number of other songs were also released this week that became eligible for the charts this week. These releases include:

  • Free Pass – DRIPPIN
  • See You Again – Han Seung Woo (of VICTON)
  • Rain Song – EPIK HIGH
  • Moonlight – BDC
  • Summer Night – Kim Kyu Jong (of SS501)
  • Vamos – OMEGA X
  • Xtra – AleXa
  • Crazy Night – DONGKIZ
  • Karma – KINGDOM
  • Find – Moon Jongup ft. Moon Sujin
  • 13IVI – BM (of KARD)
  • Tesseract – CIX
  • Veronica – ONEWE
  • Mega Punch – N.O.M
  • Rendezvous – Kim Jeong Uk
  • Damage – JUST.B
  • Pool Party – Brave Girls ft. E-CHAN (of DKB)

I will be reviewing some of these releases in some capacity in the future. Keep your eyes open for these reviews!

Throwback Corner

2PM’s comeback this week also included performances for some of their past releases such as My House and Hands Up. But my pick for this week’s Throwback Corner is their third performance for A.D.T.O.Y which was a release from 2013.

Non-Korean Track of the Week

As I mentioned last week, I am bringing back this segment. I debated whether to put TXT’s Magic back in this week. But while I have been frequently replaying Magic, I thought I add in another non-Korean song that is newly released this week and have thoroughly enjoyed as well. I am talking about Twice’s Perfect World.

The Charts

Congratulations to SEVENTEEN, who has topped my Weekly KPOP Charts for the 5th Week of June 2021 with their latest title track, Ready To Love. For more of the charts, please scroll down below.

PS. Not sure why I cannot get rid of those two cells on the right hand side of the table. My block just keeps on crashing when I try to remove it.

[Weekly Chart] 4th Week of June 2021

It is another Sunday and it is time for another Weekly KPOP Chart post. As you can probably tell, I have been absent from the blog all weeks, sans two reviews, due to some personal stuff. I will be back to normal transmission of reviews this week. Due to this massive week causing my hole in my review schedule, I have decided to do two things around the following two weekends (and I may extend to more weekends). Firstly, I will be focusing on only album reviews from 2 to 4 July. (PS. That’s next week). The weekend after I will be focusing on new debuts (i.e. 9 to 11 July), meaning that all the reviews you will be seeing that weekend will revolve around the newly debut groups which I have missed this year so far. The weekend after that might be a ISR (International Song Review) weekend, though it might be paired with the usual album reviews you see over the weekend. I will decide on that a little closer to the date. Hopefully, I will can smash out many reviews as there is a lot to catch up on. Until then, you and I have the Weekly KPOP Chart post for the 4th Week of June 2021 (this post) and a whole week’s worth of reviews to get through.

New songs added to the charts this week

So aside from A.C.E’s Higher, which was the only new release of the week that I actually sat down to review, there are a bunch of new releases that will be added to the charts that I may/may not get around to reviewing. These include:

  • Paradigm – Xydo
  • Poison – PinkFantasy
  • The Juice – Sam Kim
  • Secreto – Yezi
  • Africa – Jeongmin
  • Lazy – Kim Woosung (The Rose)
  • Obvious – MAJORS
  • Mixtape: OH – Stray Kids

Throwback Corner

This week’s featured song in the Throwback Corner (or section of the post, however you see it) is Stray Kids’ Back Door. You might recognize it from a previous Throwback Corner or too. It was just a song I gravitated to a lot this week. Like an unhealthy amount.

Non-Korean Track of the Week

I am also going to be bringing this back, just to give these types of songs some love. I had it up for a couple of weeks, but then it disappeared. I never made a decision, I just forgot it one week and never added it back in. Very simple eligibility for this part. Just be a song released by our favourite Korean artists that I have been listening to. Feel free to also post your Throwback and Non-Korean Tracks of the Week in the comments section below. I would like to see what you all have been listening to outside of the current KPOP music. For this week, the song featured in this segment is TXT’s Magic.

The Charts

And we have finally reached The Charts part of the Weekly KPOP Charts. Congratulations to Brave Girls’ Chi Mat Ba Ram, once again, for topping KPOPREVIEWED’s Weekly KPOP Charts for the second week in a row!
