ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (September 14, 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: Ed Sheeran gave the Top 40 format the shivers with his Most Added hit. Let’s add ’em up:

KEEP YOUR ED UP: It was another super start on the Top 40 adds report for the second radio single from Ed Sheeran’s upcoming album =. With 149 stations in its first week, “Shivers” was easily the Most Added song at the Top 40 format, which follows a #36 debut on the chart over the weekend. The tune also dominated at the Hot AC radio format yesterday, securing a robust 57 adds there. “Bad Habits” holds in the top three on both charts.

Justin Bieber is off to a fairly nice start with his new single from the Justice album, which he recently performed on the MTV Video Music Awards. “Ghost” picked up 63 new stations this week and a second place finish. The track debuted at #49 on last Sunday’s published update and a larger jump is expected by this weekend. It also landed in fifth place at the Hot AC format with nine early adds yesterday.

With his recent #1 entry on the Billboard Hot 100, Drake settled into third place on the report with the Future and Young Thug-assisted “Way 2 Sexy”. It secured 48 adds during the session. It was also the Most Added song at the Rhythmic and Urban radio formats this week. A second week at #1 looks very likely for its parent album Certified Lover Boy.

Charting singles from Doja Cat, Tai Verdes and Walker Hayes returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next week for another action-packed adds session.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (August 29, 2021)

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 all the hot and new releases that you need to know, here is what’s popping at the format this week:

“GOOD” TO THE LAST DROP: For its sixth and final week at the top, “Good 4 U” is the #1 song at Top 40 radio once more. While Olivia Rodrigo and her hit will be exiting the summit before the holiday weekend, she is also poised to lead the Hot AC chart with the same tune in the coming weeks.

Moving from 42-33, “Essence” marks the second and first top 40 hits for WizKid and Tems, respectively. A new remix with Justin Bieber is also securing airplay at many pop stations. You can find both versions on the deluxe version of Made In Lagos, the most recent WizKid set. Doja Cat jumps from 41-35 with “Need To Know”, her eighth top 40 hit overall and third from the Planet Her album, which peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart. Meanwhile, Halsey returns to the pop radio chart with “I Am Not A Woman, I’m A God”, debuting at #36. The song becomes the performer’s 16th top 40 entry to date.

“Chasing Stars” chases down a #48 debut, as Alesso, Marshmello and James Bay look to make an astronomical ascent on the list. At #50 this week, newcomer Olivia Penalva is in with “Ex’s”, her first song to chart outside of her native Canada.

  • Pop star Dua Lipa is back at the top of my personal chart with her ninth tune to reach the summit: “Love Again”, jumping from 3-1. Her latest single becomes the record-extending sixth #1 song taken from the original version of her Future Nostalgia album. With her ninth #1 hit overall, she is tied with Coldplay and Taylor Swift, who are also at that threshold. Silk Sonic are skating up the countdown from 39-28 with “Skate”, becoming the Biggest Mover of the week.
