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 and Justin Bieber have a monster musical moment at the format as the panel’s pick of the week. Let’s add ’em up:
“MONSTER” MASHES: The dynamic duo of Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber have this week’s Most Added song at the Top 40 format with “Monster”, scaring up 135 stations on impact. The new single debuted at #37 over the weekend, becoming the 11th top 40 hit on the chart for Mendes and the 32nd for Bieber. “Monster” brought in another 41 stations and a first place finish at the Hot AC format yesterday.
Miley Cyrus and Dua Lipa settled into second place this week with 74 stations for their new collaboration called “Prisoner”. The song edged inside the top 50 on last Sunday’s official update at #49, but should much higher by the weekend. Yesterday, it came in fourth on the adds report at the Hot AC format, two weeks ahead of its impact date there, earning eight stations.
He was shut out of the GRAMMYs nominations, but The Weeknd is certainly loved by the Top 40 radio panel: he impacted today with “Save Your Tears”, which scored 4- stations and a third place finish. It ranked at #50 last Sunday and will also be on the rise.
Charting singles from Lil Nas X and Ritt Momney returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.
Next week: the new Kid on the block, The Kid LAROI, officially impacts with his buzzing song “So Done”. (See more below.)
