ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 9, 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: Maroon 5 and Megan Thee Stallion keep the adds report looking very beautiful. Let’s add ’em up:

MAROONED AT THE TOP: With 145 stations on impact, Maroon 5 and Megan Thee Stallion earn the week’s Most Added track at the Top 40 format with “Beautiful Mistakes”, a song that has already entered the top 30 as of last weekend. The song also scored 72 adds at the Hot AC format yesterday, more than enough to lead that report too. Look for it to continue to grow into the spring.

The new duo Silk Sonic, comprised of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, finishes in second place with 129 stations for “Leave The Door Open”. The tune also took the runner-up spot at the Hot AC and Rhythmic formats with 48 and 44 adds, respectively. At R&B (f/k/a Urban AC) radio, it paced well ahead of the competition with 53 adds on impact and a Most Added win.

Bebe Rexha also had a pretty good day with “Sacrifice”, earning 44 adds on impact and a third place finish. It’s the follow-up to a recent top 20 entry at the format, the Doja Cat-assisted “Baby, I’m Jealous”, which got as high as #19 in December.

Charting singles from Cardi B, Daya and Glass Animals returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.
