RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (January 12, 2020)

Welcome to Radio Active, a Sunday evening report from POP! Goes The Charts that gets to the chart of the matter: all the highlights from the CHR/Top 40 chart, as published by Mediabase 24/7 and Mediabase Research. The underdogs are starting off the new year on a good note… at least, that’s what pop programmers tell us at this point. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

“CIRCLES” SHAPES THE LIST: With airplay at the Top 40 format returning to normal after the usual year-end spikes and dips from special programming, the massive track atop the chart remains the same: Post Malone‘s “Circles” leads the pop list for a fifth nonconsecutive week. Can Selena Gomez‘s “Lose You To Love Me” (up 3-2) find the strength to finally reach the top next Sunday? Stay tuned.

Trevor Daniel earns his first top 40 hit at the format with “Falling”, up from 42-37. Alicia Keys also returns with her 13th top 40 hit and first in seven years, “Underdog”, which bows at #40 after some hourly airplay on Thursday. It heads for adds on Tuesday.

Labelmates Lewis Capaldi and Halsey are new to the top 50 with their respective songs, “Before You Go” at #41 and “You Should Be Sad” at #45. The latter title impacts at the format on Tuesday. Ally Brooke also reaches the top 50 with “No Good”, sliding in at #50. She’s hoping to earn her third solo top 40 entry outside of Fifth Harmony in the coming weeks.
