ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 7, 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: It’s plain toosie which song wins at the format, as Drake‘s latest hit starts with a big first week launch. Who else shuffles onto the list? Let’s add ’em up:

SLIDING INTO FIRST: With 131 adds in its impact week, Drake’s “Toosie Slide” is definitely getting some Top 40 programmers on their feet. The song easily captures the top spot on this week’s list and also leads the reports at both Rhythmic and Urban radio.

As radio comes back to life following some slower weeks, largely due to the uncertainty of the current health pandemic, three other impacting songs also slide into or move up within the top ten. Rising into second place with 34 new stations this week, Powfu and Beabadoobee‘s “Coffee For Your Head (Death Bed)” is caffeinated up and charging towards the top 40. Locked in a three-way tie for seventh place with 18 adds on the report, Megan Thee Stallion‘s “Savage” hopes to give her a second top 40 entry on the pop radio chart. The new Martin Garrix and Clinton Kane collaboration also steps into tenth place, as “Drown” scores 17 stations.

Charting songs from Dua Lipa, Lauv and The Weeknd 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.
