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: Dua Lipa paces well ahead of the competition to secure the top spot with a song that’s really starting to climb in airplay. Who else is in the mix? Let’s add ’em up:
“START” THE CELEBRATION: After entering the top 50 on last Sunday’s published update, Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start Now” will not be stopping anytime soon. Complimenting its top ten ranks on iTunes and Spotify in the U.S., the building hit begins at Top 40 radio with a very good 124 stations on impact, which easily makes it the Most Added release of the week. Though the single has not received an adds date at any other format so far, look for it to earn some airplay at the Hot AC and Rhythmic formats soon. “Don’t” should be well into the top 40 on the pop chart by the weekend.
Elsewhere, Travis Scott earns his best week yet with “Highest In The Room”, a top ten single on the Rhythmic radio survey that’s on the move at some Top 40 outlets. It earned 42 new stations during the session, which puts it in the runner-up position. Landing in sixth place at the format, Louis Tomlinson‘s “We Made It” officially impacts this week, adding another 16 stations to its total.
Recent charting releases by Blackbear, Kesha and Tones And I are among those prominent titles making up the rest of the top ten.
Next week, look out for potentially solid results for recent collaborations from MAX and Chromeo and Zedd and Kehlani.
