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 are monsters on the loose… well, that is, a few monster records are out there and landing on the chart. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:
20K FOR 24K: 24KGoldn and Iann Dior remain at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the fifth week in a row with “Mood”. At the same time, it eclipses 20,000 spins in a week, becoming the first song to officially reach that total on a published update.
Four singles are new to the top 40 on this week’s chart. The highest of them comes from Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber, who race in at #37 with “Monster”. It’s the 11th top 40 song for Mendes and the 32nd for Bieber, both of whom are currently on the chart with other records from their respective forthcoming albums. Lil Nas X leaps from 46-38 with “Holiday”, his third top 40 hit at the format. Lifting from 41-39, Joji picks up his second top 40 tune and first on his own with “Your Man”. Finally, “Hawái” breezes into the top 40 for Maluma and The Weeknd, moving from 44-40. It’s their first and 16th top 40 entries at the format, respectively.
After a release on Thursday night, Miley Cyrus and Dua Lipa land at #49 with “Prisoner”. Meanwhile, “Hawái” isn’t the only tune on the rise for The Weeknd this week, as his solo release “Save Your Tears” bounces in at #50.
