ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (July 10, 2018)

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: superstars Drake and Justin Timberlake are in their feelings with that top spot in sight, as they battle for the crown. Who’s leading the soul patrol? (Sorry, Taylor Hicks, not you.) Let’s add ’em up:

YOUR “SOUL” PROVIDER: With our holiday week in the rearview mirror, the Top 40 radio panel gets back to work with some cool new records in the heat of the summer. Of the most notable releases entering the top ten this week, “In My Feelings” by Drake and “SoulMate” by Justin Timberlake lead the way. It was a close race for most of the day, but in the end… yes, it was a tie! Each of the two songs reported 34 adds this week, which gives both “Feelings” and “SoulMate” bragging rights. Will either of these releases hold onto the top spot all on their own next week? We’ll see next Tuesday evening.

Elsewhere, Ella Mai‘s recent Urban radio chart-topper “Boo’d Up” scores a solid third place finish with 21 new stations. “Magic In The Hamptons” also gives new duo Social House a potential future hit at the pop format, as the Lil Yachty-assisted track scores 15 stations on impact, good for a fourth place finish.

Watch out for Juice WRLD‘s “Lucid Dreams”, a streaming monster that impacts here a week from now.
