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: Post Malone has the cure for your post-Labor Day blues, as his latest hit circles the format and squarely leads the weekly log. Let’s add ’em up:
THE SHAPE OF POP RADIO: Ahead of his highly-anticipated album Hollywood’s Bleeding, due Friday, Post Malone lands the Most Added song at Top 40 radio this Tuesday with “Circles”, scoring a big 115 stations. “Circles” snuck into the top 40 on this past Sunday’s published update at #40, so you can expect it to make a larger move by the weekend. At the Rhythmic format, the track is in second place on the log with 15 adds in its first week.
Taylor Swift also advanced with the title track from her album Lover, which received 34 stations during the session and a second place finish. Though the track has not seen a formal impact date as of yet, it’s already at #10 on the latest Billboard Hot 100 update following the album’s robust #1 debut. As “You Need To Calm Down” begins to descend in the coming weeks, look for this single to easily make the top 40 very soon.
Charting releases by Alessia Cara, Lizzo and Normani are among those prominent songs making up the rest of the top ten.
Camila Cabello looks poised to lead next week’s adds report, with new music (two songs) from her expected on Thursday.
