ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 2, 2019)

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 back to the record ranch with the current viral hit from Lil Nas X, but a few new titles are riding into the top ten as well. Yeehaw! Let’s add ’em up:

A LIL MORE ACTION: Headed down the “Old Town Road” once more, rapper Lil Nas X gets a lil boost at the format, as 44 new stations come in for his first single to chart on the Top 40 list. Meanwhile, the top impacting release comes from newcomer Kiana Ledé, whose “Ex” slides into second place with 28 stations. The song is currently in the top 20 at Rhythmic radio, while also rising again (after a brief descent) at the Urban format, where it sits in the top 30.

Elsewhere, Ciara starts out solidly with a fourth place finish and 18 first-week stations for “Thinkin Bout You”, which she hopes to push into the top 40 for her first appearance in the region since 2009’s Justin Timberlake-assisted “Love Sex Magic”. A number of proven hits from past weeks, including songs by Ally Brooke, Billie Eilish and Mabel, continue to remain active here.

Next Tuesday will feature a competitive session at the format, as impacting titles from In Real Life, Jennifer Lopez, the Jonas Brothers, Kelly Clarkson and Rachel Crow are among the top names currently in the mix. Will anyone else jump in?
