RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (October 18, 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. There’s lots of “Love” on this week’s log and much more, so let’s see what’s popping at the format this week:

“LOVE” WILL FIND A WAY: Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo remain at #1 on the Top 40 chart for the third week with “Savage Love (Laxed-Siren Beat)”, which includes the song’s most recent remix featuring BTS. The song holds at the summit as record label Columbia claims the top three slots at the format, with recent chart-topper “Watermelon Sugar” by Harry Styles staying at #2 and “Mood” by 24kGoldn and Iann Dior (via the RECORDS imprint) climbing from 5-3 on its way to the top.

Justin Bieber and Benny Blanco land at #36 with their new collaboration “Lonely”. It becomes the 31st top 40 single for Bieber, who also moves from 15-12 with the Chance The Rapper-assisted “Holy”, and the fourth such entry for Blanco. TikTok star Dixie D’Amelio rises from 41-37 with her first top 40 song at any format, “Be Happy”. Following her, “My Ex’s Best Friend” by Machine Gun Kelly and Blackbear lifts from 44-38 this week. It’s their fourth and fifth top 40 hits, respectively, and is just below the same region at the Alternative format. Finally, the aforementioned Derulo is up from 43-39 with his 22nd top 40 hit, “Take You Dancing”.

This week’s top 50 is just as busy, if not busier, than last week. The late Pop Smoke enters the pop list for the first time with “What You Know ‘Bout Love” at #43, as the new Bebe Rexha and Doja Cat collaboration “Baby, I’m Jealous” comes in at #45. It was last week’s Most Added track here. The new single by Harry Styles blasts in at #47, as he scores once again with “Golden”. Finally, this week’s #50 entry is “Lemonade”, a big streaming hit from the Internet Money label featuring Gunna, Don Toliver and Nav.
