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. It’s certainly OK to check out these building titles and top movers at the format. Here’s what’s popping this week:
RUNNING LOW ON “SUGAR”: Harry Styles sneaks in a seventh week at #1 on the Top 40 chart with “Watermelon Sugar”. At this time, it’s likely to be the song’s final frame at the top, as Lewis Capaldi‘s “Before You Go” (which holds at #2 again) powers up in an attempt to claim the slowest run ever to #1 at the format.
In the top 40, the reissue of Zara Larsson‘s “Wow” lifts from 41-39 to become her ninth top 40 release at the format. Dan + Shay are also on the move with “I Should Probably Go To Bed”, lifting from 42-40 and earning the duo their fourth top 40 crossover hit.
The highest debut in the top 50 is the new collaboration from Marshmello and Demi Lovato, “OK Not To Be OK”, which bows at #43. The song also lands in the top 50 on this week’s Hot AC chart. Meanwhile, popular TikTok personality Dixie D’Amelio is also new to region, as “Be Happy” starts at #47. A remix of it, which features Blackbear and Lil Mosey, was released on Wednesday. A third new song lands at #50: newcomer Tate McRae slides in with “You Broke Me First”, a streaming hit that has already made the top 40 in several countries.
