ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (October 6, 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: Shawn Mendes has a wonderous start with his new tune “Wonder”, as a number of other new releases marked a wonderful arrival the top ten. Let’s add ’em up:

“WONDER” LANDS: With 166 stations coming in on impact, Shawn Mendes secured a huge first week sum with the title cut off his forthcoming studio album Wonder. Yesterday, the song was the Most Added release at the Hot AC format, taking in 68 stations there. It’s now well into the top 30 on both charts and moving fast.

Dua Lipa also scored a larger first week for “Levitating” with 127 stations on impact, good for second place. It had a great entry in the top 50 at #45 on last Sunday’s published update and should move into the top 40 this coming weekend, thanks in part to a new remix that features DaBaby.

Charting singles from Saweetie, Travis Scott and Why Don’t We returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.
