ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (September 29, 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: we find some fast adds for Travis Scott‘s fast food, which certainly helps to nourish the Top 40 panel. Let’s add ’em up:

A LOT FOR SCOTT: Travis Scott’s “Franchise”, a collaboration with Young Thug and M.I.A., is the week’s Most Added song at the Top 40 format with 56 stations on impact. It earns an additional 60 adds at the Rhythmic format and 63 on the Urban report.

The rest of the top four also consists of new entries: Bastille‘s “Survivin'”, which earned a third place finish at both the Alternative and Hot AC formats, was a survivor and started in second place here with 28 adds in its first week. Why Don’t We‘s “Fallin'” took the third position with 26 stations this week, just six hours after the tune was released. Look for it to score even more action during next week’s session, when it officially impacts at this format. Finally, Ali Gatie and Alessia Cara‘s collaboration “Welcome Back” was welcomed solidly by the Top 40 panel, settling in fourth place with 25 adds from the panel.

Charting singles from Madison Beer, Sam Smith and Zoe Wees returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.
