ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (July 28, 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: terrific triple digit wins for Maroon 5 and Taylor Swift‘s latest releases. Let’s add ’em up:

“NOBODY’S” SUPPOSED TO BE HERE: After a day of heavy action, Maroon 5’s “Nobody’s Love” secures the love of the radio panel, picking up 143 Top 40 stations on impact. Finishing in a strong second place, Swift’s “Cardigan” warms up with 110 adds. At this time, the former is headed for a top 30 move by the weekend, while the latter should make a larger debut within the top 40.

Impacting singles from DJ Khaled and Drake (#4), Jeremy Zucker (#6) and Jonas Blue and MAX (#8) also reached the top ten on impact, but with significantly smaller totals. “Popstar” is already inside the top 50 at the format. The latter two entries could enter the region (with continued support) during the latter part of August.

Charting singles from Avenue Beat and the late Juice WRLD returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap!

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. MAROON 5, “Nobody’s Love” (222/Interscope)
2. TAYLOR SWIFT, “Cardigan” (Republic)
3. JUICE WRLD & MARSHMELLO, “Come & Go” (Grade A/Interscope)
4. DJ KHALED featuring DRAKE, “Popstar” (We The Best/OVO/Republic-Epic)
5. AVENUE BEAT, “F2020” (Tape Room/Valory-in2une)
6. JEREMY ZUCKER, “Supercuts” (Republic)
7. ZARA LARSSON, “Love Me Land” (Epic)
8-T. JONAS BLUE & MAX, “Naked” (Astralwerks/Capitol)
8-T. KANE BROWN, SWAE LEE & KHALID, “Be Like That” (RCA-Interscope)
8-T. TOPIC & A7S, “Breaking Me” (Astralwerks/Capitol)

RADIO REPORT: What’s Popping At Top 40 Radio This Week (July 27-28, 2020)

It’s time once again to analyze the airwaves and find out if your favorite new releases will be lighting up your local station’s playlist this week. Which tunes will climb to the top and which ones will hit a stop? Here are four tracks impacting this week at the Top 40 format:

JEREMY ZUCKER – “Supercuts” (Republic)
Album: TBA (2020)
Past T40 History: Last March, Zucker entered the pop chart for the first time with his song “Comethru”, which got as high as #37.

JONAS BLUE & MAX – “Naked” (Astralwerks/Capitol)
Album: TBA (2020)
Past T40 History: Blue continues to struggle here: his highest-charting track, the William Singe-assisted “Mama”, hit #31 in 2017.

MAROON 5 – “Nobody’s Love” (222/Interscope)
Album: TBA (2020)
Past T40 History: This song entered at #36 on yesterday’s published chart, extending the popular band’s history to 28 top 40 hits.

TAYLOR SWIFT – “Cardigan” (Republic)
Album: Folklore (2020)
Past T40 History: It’s not quite “Lovefool” by The Cardigans, a #1 single for six weeks in 1997, but “Cardigan” should still be solid.

Among next week’s impacting titles is a Latin lovefest from J Balvin, Dua Lipa, Bad Bunny and Tainy. Will it rule for one day and pace ahead of other emerging titles? Stay tuned.

How will these songs perform on the adds report? Let me know!

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 26, 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 end of July is here and the summer hits are taking over the chart and the heart… here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

HAVE A “HEART”: Dua Lipa earns her third #1 song at the Top 40 format with “Break My Heart”, which leaps from 3-1. Earlier this year, “Don’t Start Now” spent six weeks at the top, making her the only act to have more than one chart-topper in 2020. The hit also ranks at #9 on this week’s Hot AC chart update.

Earning their 28th top 40 single at the format, Maroon 5 vaults into the top 40 at #36 with “Nobody’s Love”. It’s their follow-up to “Memories”, which spent two weeks at #1 in February. The Juice WRLD and Marshmello collaboration “Come & Go” also enters at #40: it’s the third top 40 hit (and first posthumous entry) for the former artist, as the latter collects his ninth.

The only new title in the top 50 comes from DJ Khaled and Drake, who start at #50 with “Popstar”. This is the third collaboration between the two artists to reach the region here. The track is already in the top 20 on the Rhythmic radio chart and should approach the region on the Urban chart in the next week or two.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (July 21, 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: Juice WRLD‘s posthumous collaboration with Marshmello is all gooey and toasted at the top of the adds report. Let’s have a snack and add ’em up:

WHAT’S THE JUICE?: From the recent #1 album Legends Never Die, Juice WRLD and Marshmello’s “Come & Go” easily grabs the Most Added title on this week’s Top 40 report, scoring 58 stations on impact. The single also adds another seven stations at the Alternative format from today’s log, where it lands in fifth place. Look for the tune to do well on both charts: at Top 40, it will enter the top 50 by the weekend with a high debut.

Blackbear‘s “Queen Of Broken Hearts” remains strong for its official impact date after a fourth place finish last week. The track is in with another 30 stations, giving it the runner-up spot on the report. Zara Larsson‘s “Love Me Land” also had a great start with 26 adds in its first week, good for fourth place.
