ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 17, 2020)

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: Benee successfully taps into her supapowers during a weak week here at the format; more on that below. Let’s add ’em up:

BENEE THERE, DONE THAT: Unfortunately, it’s fair to say that the fear over the spread of the Coronavirus was the new entry that dominated this week’s adds report. It was inevitable: numbers were down severely and many stations reported no adds.

Of this week’s impacting songs, Benee‘s first release at the format, the Gus Dapperton-assisted “Supalonely”, managed to find a total of 30 stations on impact, making it the Most Added release today. On a normal week, it likely would’ve done much better.

Bazzi‘s latest single also pulled in 19 stations for a third place finish, as “Young & Alive” also struggled given the circumstances.

Charting songs from Demi Lovato, Lauv and Maren Morris are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap. Stay safe out there.
