ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (September 22, 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: Justin Bieber and Sam Smith witness some triple-digit love at the Top 40 format, but which of their diamonds is the jewel of the panel? Let’s add ’em up:

O “HOLY” FIGHT: The race was tight for the week’s Most Added single, but in the battle of the one-word titles, “Holy” found the faith to blast past “Diamonds”. Bieber and Chance The Rapper‘s new collaboration together secured 165 stations on impact, just ahead of Smith’s still impressive 145. The pair of pop winners are already well into the top 40 at this format and should continue to make some moves through the fall. On Monday, “Diamonds” snuck ahead of “Holy” to become the Most Added track at the Hot AC format, but the top spot on today’s report at the Rhythmic format went to “Holy”.

Last week’s top song, Marshmello and Demi Lovato‘s “OK Not To Be OK”, settled for third place with 29 more adds this week.

Charting singles from Tate McRae and Zoe Wees returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next week for more adds action!
