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. For a look at the stats that’ll give you the shivers, here’s what’s popping at the format this week:
“STAY” STAYS: The Australian-Canadian collaboration from The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber is at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for a second week. “Stay” is also moving well at the Hot AC format, where it climbs from 9-6 and could be a contender for the top spot soon.
Ed Sheeran earns his 23rd top 40 single at the format with “Shivers”, which enters at #36 this week. It’s the follow-up to his recent hit “Bad Habits”, which remains at #3 on the list. Meanwhile, Jackson Wang and Internet Money leap from 42-40 with “Drive You Home”. Wang is in with his fourth top 40 entry to date, while the label/collective picks up their second.
The aforementioned Bieber has another new tune in the top 50 for the second consecutive week, as “Ghost” spooks the #49 spot. The popular album cut appears on Justice, which was released back in March. One spot lower, Bbno$ and Rich Brian check in at #50 with “Edamame”.
