ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (January 12, 2021)

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: Justin Bieber and Olivia Rodrigo drove big activity on the new report at the format, but who ended up on top? For those hits and much more, let’s add ’em up:

DRIVER’S SEATED: Disney star and singer Olivia Rodrigo has a massive sales and streaming smash with “Driver’s License” and radio is taking notice, as it leads the Top 40 adds report one week before impact. The track speeds in with 65 early stations and will likely enter the top 40 by the weekend, especially given all the new momentum for it. It will be Rodrigo’s first song to chart here.

Two recent collaborations also made the top five on the log: coming in with a solid 34 stations, Saweetie and Doja Cat entered in third place with “Best Friend”, while Zara Larsson and Young Thug took fourth place with 30 stations for “Talk About Love”.

Further down the list, LOONA lands in the top ten for the first time with “Star”, while The Kid LAROI‘s “Without You” secures a few more early believers and sneaks into the region. The former scores another 17 adds, tying for sixth place, while the latter has 14 and ties for ninth.

Charting singles from Ed Sheeran and the late Pop Smoke returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

Olivia Rodrigo’s new hit looks to continue to drive up the adds report when it officially impacts next week.
