ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (July 18, 2017)

Welcome to Add Lib, your Tuesday report on POP! Goes The Charts that’s mad about CHR/Top 40 adds, based on the station data provided by Mediabase 24/7 and Add Board. This week: the girls of the pop world return to the Most Added leaderboard, as Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez release new singles, giving everyone life in the process. How fun! Who takes the pop prize? Catch the tasty Top 40 wave below…

“SORRY” SEEMS TO BE THE HOTTEST WORD: No need for a lo siento or a pardon here! Demi Lovato grabs the top slot on this week’s adds report with “Sorry Not Sorry”, starting with 62 stations on impact. It’s the first taste of her forthcoming album, which should be out sometime later this year. Lovato appears as the featured vocalist on “No Promises” by Cheat Codes, which is currently at #23 on the Top 40 chart. A music video for “Sorry” debuts tomorrow, and given its hold in the top ten on iTunes, there could be a nice sales and streaming boost in the works for it. Stay tuned! Look out for any significant movement for the song in our usual Sunday updates.

READY SET GO-MEZ: While “Bad Liar” looks to be stalling out below the top ten, peaking at #12 a couple of weeks ago, Selena Gomez wastes no time releasing a follow-up single to the format. “Fetish” features rapper Gucci Mane, and the pop panel begins its obsession with it this week, garnering 20 adds the week before it impacts. Unless a major new release drops on Friday and has a Tuesday impact date that I don’t know about yet, “Fetish” should be the leading candidate to score the Most Added title next week.

Next week, buzzing tracks from Fall Out Boy and Selena Gomez/Gucci Mane (who officially impact) will be in the mix of pop priorities at the format. Who has what it takes to top the Most Added report? Find out real soon.
