ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (May 12, 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: Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber get stuck at the top of the report by a pretty large margin, so stick around and let’s add ’em up:

THE POP U-NIVERSE: ‘Tis a great time to be charitable! The new charity tune from Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber picked up a super 163 stations on impact, easily making it this week’s Most Added song at the format. “Stuck With U” also topped the Hot AC report yesterday with another 65 adds there and claimed a third place finish at the Rhythmic format, checking in with 20 stations.

No additional impacting tracks landed in the top five, but Lil Mosey‘s “Blueberry Faygo”, which heads for adds next Tuesday, tied for third place with 23 new stations this week. Another track that’s bound to hold up a week from today is the new single by Harry Styles, as “Watermelon Sugar” landed in fifth with another 18 adds this week. Gee, this Top 40 fruit salad is tasty so far, but we do need some grapes and mangos and pineapples to fill it out, you know? Get to work, songwriters!

Charting singles from Marshmello & Halsey and Megan Thee Stallion return to the top ten on the adds report this week.
