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: it’s a miracle that we’ve haven’t lost our minds, as at least eight fresh titles (and probably more) impact at the format, giving the Top 40 panel some mighty tough decisions for a musical Memorial Day. Let’s take a breather (phew) and get back to adding ’em up:
“BACK” TO BACKSTREET: With all the excitement on this week’s report, the top three singles at the format this Tuesday came down to last week’s Most Added song, “Back To You” by Selena Gomez, and two releases from acts who found their biggest chart success in the late 90’s and early 00’s: “Dinero” by singer and actress Jennifer Lopez, which also features labelmate DJ Khaled and Cardi B, and “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” from top boy band Backstreet Boys. Yes, it was a nail-biter for most of the day, but when the dust settled, all three songs finished with 51 stations each, a rare three-way tie for the Most Added spot.
Given all the prominent songs impacting on the Top 40 airwaves this week, it would be quite the challenge to cover everything that scored any sort of action today. That being said, the latest single from Australian quartet 5 Seconds Of Summer (“Youngblood”) and the first song at the format for Israel’s Dennis Lloyd (“Nevermind”) each secured enough stations to rank well in the top ten, the former with 21 in fifth place and the latter with 24 in fourth place. (There’s much more music below, so check it out!) Enjoy the long holiday weekend ahead!
