In Chart Recap, we take a look at what’s happening on the CMJ charts each week. Check out the CMJ Radio 200 top 20 for the week. CMJ NMR Subscribers can login to view the complete charts.

Bully‘s debut Feels Like made it to No. 1 on Radio 200 this week. A debut album topping the charts is not a common occurrence, and to further the rarity of this accomplishment they made it to the top even though they appeared on less than 50% of reporting station’s charts.

Leon Bridges moved up to No. 2 from the No. 6 position pushing Thee Oh Sees to No. 3, ending their fourth (non-consecutive) week at No. 1. Girlpool continues to hover around the middle of the top ten and is at No. 5 this week. Hot Chip and Jamie xx held down the RPM representation on the Radio 200 chart where they stood at No. 6 and No. 7, while Cayucas remained at No. 9. Jaill made it to the top 10 from their position at No. 12 last week. Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge were this week’s top mover climbing from No. 146 to No. 58, and also reaching the top of the Hip-Hop charts. Last week’s most added, Bird and the Bee, were the top mover for this week. Tame Impala‘s highly anticipated Currents was the most added, by the largest margin we’ve seen in a while, and will most likely be reaching No. 1 in the not too distant future.

Turning to RPM, the British lads battled it out. Hot Chip reclaimed the No. 1 position, bumping Jamie xx to No. 2 this week. That makes Hot Chip’s weeks at No. 1 seven in total. We’ll see if Jamie xx can reclaim No. 1 again next week. This is Jamie xx’s fifth non-consecutive week at No. 2. Hudson Mohawke stayed at No. 3 for five non-consecutive weeks earlier this year. Maribou State and LA Priest swapped between No. 4 and No. 5, while Giorgio Moroder stayed at No. 6 and Thundercat moved up from No. 10 to No. 7. The chart’s top mover was Bomba Estereo from No. 28 to No. 15, and the top debut was Chemical Brothers at No. 8.

In New World this week, Bomba Estereo reached No. 1 and are NMR’s cover feature. Mbongwana Star shifted from their six weeks on the charts at No. 1 to No. 3 this week, while Flavia Coehlo moved to No. 2 from No. 4. The rest of the top 10 stayed the same with minor shifts here and there. The chart’s top debut was Axel Krygier at No. 18, and the top mover was tied between Alex Cuba and Rocky Dawuni, both moving 14 spots.
