ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (September 4, 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: we say “Goodbye” to the long weekend with a reactive collaboration. Now, let’s check out what’s powering the pop format and add ’em up:

ONE GOOD BUY: In one of the more predictable results this year, “Goodbye”, the new collaboration by Jason Derulo x David Guetta featuring Nicki Minaj and Willy William, easily finishes at #1 on this Tuesday’s Top 40 report, partially due to the lack of competition following the Labor Day holiday. It starts with 109 stations on impact, towering over the #2 entry by a giant margin of 85 stations. Holdovers make up most of the rest of the top ten, though there’s a noteworthy entry for Urban and Rhythmic radio hit “Sicko Mode” by Travis Scott, tying for eighth place with ten stations this week. (An official impact date has yet to surface.)
