ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (October 22, 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: BTS and Lauv make a stand at the format, while a bunch of new releases break into the mix with a top five start. Let’s add ’em up:

STARTING ON THE “RIGHT” FOOT: The K-pop stars known as BTS had a solid opening week for their Lauv-assisted version of “Make It Right”, a new release last Friday, which picked up 45 stations during the session. Ed Sheeran co-wrote the track, which made its debut (as solely a BTS song) earlier this year. Blackbear‘s “Hot Girl Bummer” earned another 29 stations this week for a third place finish, tying it with Dan + Shay and Justin Bieber‘s “10,000 Hours”, which finally had its official impact here.

A pair of newcomers to the format, Tones And I and PUBLIC, finished the day in fifth and sixth place with “Dance Monkey” and “Make You Mine”, respectively. “Dance” (at 21 stations) has become a global smash in the last few months, hitting #1 in well over a dozen countries, including Australia, Sweden and the United Kingdom. “Make” (at 14 stations) has steadily earned an audience via the video app TikTok, which continues to drive interest in viral songs.

Recent releases from Billie Eilish, Charlie Puth and Post Malone are among those prominent songs making up the rest of the top ten.

The new track from Selena Gomez, which is due tomorrow, will be the likely champion on next week’s report. “Lose You To Love Me” received a handful of early adds this week.
