2018 Chart Year - 6/16/18 - Week 30/53 - PrinceWhateverer Debuts at #1, John Kenza Surges in With New Single, and Vylet Pony Returns

NOTE: As I will be on vacation for about two weeks' time, charts will not be posted in time for those weeks. The data will still be collected, and once I return, I'll catch them up, but you won't be seeing them on the 15th or 22nd.

Anyway, we've got a new leader, once more a debut. Destabilize, originally a 2013 hit carrying into 2014, has received a new recording with new featured acts, getting people very excited with 18,000 streams and almost 1,000 likes in the first week. It just fends off Celestial Dance, surging thanks to a feature on a non-brony promotion channel. With both songs posting over 3,400 chart points, it becomes a much more competitive field than a week ago, where our #1 posted just over 1,700 points. Speaking of it, Glimmer Time dips 1-4 in its second frame. The last big bit of news is Daybreaker by Vylet Pony's return to the top 10 in its 6th week, up 15-9, after debuting at #5. See more past the break!

2018 Chart Year - 6/2/18 - Week 28/53 - Jay Man Returns to the Top, JoinedTheHerd Gets Third Song Into Top 10 of Current Set

After the hubbub that was Starcadian leading last week, his track takes a 1-14 drop as hype for the animation wears off. In its place, the previous leader, Soaring With Stars, returns for a second frame on top (2-1). It leads with a secure lead of more than double, with no obvious competitor currently charting (the #2, Open Up Your Eyes (3-2), continues to gradually decline). Two songs make new peaks in the top 5: Runaway Princess (6-5) and Time to Be Awesome's JoinedTheHerd remix (5-4). The latter is part of a bigger story: of JoinedTheHerd's comeback era this year, all 3 of his show remixes are now occupying the top 10 at the same time, as Awesome is joined by We're Not Flawless (7-7) and the newly ascending One Small Thing (11-10). The final little tidbit is Second Chances zooming back 12-8 into the zone, giving it a 10th week in the top 10.

2018 Chart Year - 5/26/18 - Week 27/53 - Fandom Foreigner Starcadian Debuts at #1, Jyc Row Lands in Top 10, JoinedTheHerd Climbs to Zone

In a special situation, indie musician Starcadian, who specializes in 80s-style electro and new wave, has managed to get himself onto the Trot 100, at the top position! How was this done, you may ask? Well, his song Interspace received a special animation from CaptainHoers, an animator in the fandom known for such videos as Spitfire's Day Off (which was soundtracked by the 90s hit cover of "Come on Eileen" by Save Ferris). Receiving over 12,000 views and 1,300 likes in its first week, the video caught the attention of the artist, who gave it tacit approval with a positive comment. The song itself is ambiguously lyricized so that it doesn't counter its veracity for the chart, and Starcadian has no major hits in the mainstream that would invalidate the entry, so the song is the #1 for the chart this week, dethroning Jay Man's Soaring With Stars.

Elsewhere in the top 10, there's quite a rumbling going on. Runaway Princess continues its ascent, up 10-6 this week. After spending 2 weeks in the top 15, JoinedTheHerd's remix of We're Not Flawless swoops in 13-7, joining the artist's remix of Time to Be Awesome (holding at #5 this week). Finally, the penultimate song from Jyc Row's Heroes EP, Hope, debuts at #9, continuing the top 10 debut streak that began with its 2nd track:

  • Strength, #17 (January 27, 2018)
  • Bravery, #6 (February 24, 2018)
  • Healing, #9 (March 24, 2018)
  • Beauty, #5 (April 28, 2018)
  • Hope, #9 (May 26, 2018)
