ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (October 29, 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: Selena Gomez has a winning song about losing, while Kesha is raising her profile on the log with her new collaboration. Let’s add ’em up:

“LOSE” WINS BIG: Pop star Selena Gomez, who’s looking for her first #1 song at the format since the spring of 2016, could be a couple of months away from it with “Lose You To Love Me”, which debuted last week. The very personal ballad easily grabs the top spot on this week’s report with a giant 168 stations on impact, which doesn’t include a handful of adds that came in early last week. It also led yesterday’s report at Hot AC radio with 37 stations there. The song entered at #29 on last Sunday’s published update. At this point, it could be vying for a solid move into the top 20 by the weekend.

In second place with a very strong total, Kesha’s “Raising Hell”, a collaboration with Big Freedia, is in with 83 stations. After just sneaking into this past weekend’s chart at #50, it should have larger jump up the chart, likely well into the top 40. It also ranked in second place on yesterday’s log at Hot AC radio, coming in with 18 stations.

Recent charting releases by Blackbear, Charlie Puth and Tones And I are among those prominent titles making up the rest of the top ten, which also includes an impacting title from AJR and some early action for Louis Tomlinson‘s latest.

Next week, Dua Lipa‘s upcoming single “Don’t Start Now” should, in fact, start atop the usual adds report at the format.
