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. Whether you’re a loser, lover or somewhere in-between, we’ve got you covered with plenty of pop stats. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:
COME AND GET YOUR “LOVE”: Earning her fifth #1 single at the Top 40 format and first since 2016, Selena Gomez rises up a notch with “Lose You To Love Me”. It also reaches the top ten on this week’s Hot AC chart, moving from 11-10. This single appears on her recent album Rare, with the title track from the set edging closer to the top 50 here after strong unsolicited airplay.
There are three acts with at least one #1 song to their credit entering the top 40 this week: Halsey with “You Should Be Sad”, which rises from 45-23, the Jonas Brothers with “What A Man Gotta Do”, starting at #29 and Lewis Capaldi with “Before You Go”, up from 41-33. It’s the 13th top 40 hit for Halsey, the 11th for the siblings and the second for Capaldi. “You” is the latest single from her album Manic, which debuted on Friday and is expected to launch in the top three on the Billboard 200 survey. “What” is likely to be the lead single from the trio’s sixth studio album, due sometime later this year. “Before” is taken from an expanded edition of the set Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, which became available last November.
The international single “Ride It” by Regard, a DJ who flipped an old Jay Sean song into a viral dance record, breaks the top 50 at #47 this week. Newcomer Roddy Rich raps his way towards more riches with this week’s #49 debut, “The Box”. The song, which is also blasting up the Rhythmic and Urban charts, recently topped the Billboard Hot 100 list. Lastly, Post Malone is in at #50 with a recent #1 tune on the Rhythmic chart, the DaBaby-assisted “Enemies”, taken from the album Hollywood’s Bleeding.
