Liner Notes
Red Guitar Pick
The FATpick Blog

Ed Sheeran's "Perfect" dominates this month's chart: jumping 2 positions to the top slot and earning nearly 3x more play time than last month. But 80% of the top 10 are new entries this month. ("Do I Wanna Know?" by the Arctic Monkeys is the other incumbent, accounting for a smaller slice of the total play time - down ~1% of the total play time - but gaining one position - up from rank 8 to rank 7.)
