RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 13, 2020)

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. This weekend, menorahs are burning bright across the nation and so is the pop radio chart, which lights up with new tunes. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

WHO’S BEHIND THE DIOR: 24KGoldn and Iann Dior hold at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the eighth week with “Mood”. The collaboration is now the longest-running #1 song of the year at the pop format. With two more chart weeks during 2020 for it to expand on that total, we’ll see if it goes any further soon.

Thanks to several songs headed to recurrent status, there’s quite a bit of action in the lower regions of the chart this week. Leading a pack of four new titles in the top 40, All Time Low and Blackbear leap from 46-33 with “Monsters”. It’s the first top 40 single for the band and the seventh for Blackbear, who was certainly on a hot streak in 2020. The tune holds at #1 on the Alternative chart this week, marking its 13th nonconsecutive week at the summit. Landing at #38 is “Body”, the third top 40 hit on the pop list for Megan Thee Stallion. It’s now in the top 20 on both the Rhythmic and Urban charts. Bad Bunny hops along and collects his third top 40 hit with “Dàkiti”, rising from 45-39. It’s the first top 40 single for his collaborator Jhay Cortez. Finally, jumping from 50-40 on the chart, Sigala and James Arthur score their first and second top 40 hits, respectively, with “Lasting Lover”. It remains at #1 on the Dance list for a third week in a row.

After two days of airplay, Taylor Swift‘s “Willow” bows at #41. It’s the first charting song from her new album Evermore. From the Alternative chart, two recent top five songs inquisitively reach the Top 40 list this week: Wallows with “Are You Bored Yet?” at #47 and Dayglow with “Can I Call You Tonight?” at #49. Finally, at #50, newcomer HVME sneaks into the region with “Goosebumps”, a flip of a Travis Scott song from 2016 that did not previously chart here, but hit #1 at the Rhythmic format in the spring of 2017.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 6, 2020)

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. With the holiday freeze approaching, slower weeks are ahead, but not before some decent December action on the charts. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

SEVEN GOLDN WEEKS: 24KGoldn and Iann Dior stay at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the seventh consecutive week with “Mood”, tying for the longest run of the year so far along with top titles from Harry Styles and The Weeknd. “Mood” is still more than 1,600 spins ahead of the song in the runner-up position.

Two newcomers reach the top 40 with their first chart singles: The Kid LAROI soars from 44-39 with “So Done”, while Ashnikko is up from 42-40 with “Daisy”. The former is currently based in Australia, while the latter is in England (but she was born and raised in North Carolina.)

Thanks to a newly-released remix that features Demi Lovato, who is not currently credited on Mediabase, the current #1 hit on the Alternative chart by All Time Low and Blackbear enters at #46. “Monsters” is the third song by the band to reach the top 50 here since their debut in 2011. Following the collaborative trend, David Guetta and Sia are also new at #48 with “Let’s Love”, as Sigala and James Arthur come in at #50 with “Lasting Lover”.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 29, 2020)

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. We hope you’re enjoying your leftovers, but on the pop airwaves, there’s some fresh data to be consumed. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

HOLDIN’ FOR GOLDN: 24KGoldn and Iann Dior are at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the sixth week in a row with “Mood”. The former #1 song at the Rhythmic format drops from 3-4 there, while it holds at #8 on the Alternative chart. On the pop survey, it remains more than 2,000 spins ahead of the song at #2, so it could pull off a seventh week at the summit if it holds together.

Last week’s pair of top 50 entries are now flying into the top 40 here: Miley Cyrus and Dua Lipa leap from 49-38 with “Prisoner”. It earns the two women their 14th and 12th top 40 hits, respectively. The Weeknd‘s “Save Your Tears” is also looking strong with a 50-39 jump this week, becoming his 17th top 40 entry to date. Despite the lack of Grammy love, his enduring song “Blinding Lights” is steady at #9 in its 49th week on the chart. Will the former chart-topper hit 50 weeks before it’s purged from the list? Stay tuned.

Bad Bunny and Jhay Cortez land at #48 on the chart with their streaming hit “Dàkiti”, which has already charted well in parts of Latin and South America. Actress/singer Veronika is in at #50 with “So Many Lies”, which enters largely due to overnight airplay.

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. There are monsters on the loose… well, that is, a few monster records are out there and landing on the chart. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

20K FOR 24K: 24KGoldn and Iann Dior remain at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the fifth week in a row with “Mood”. At the same time, it eclipses 20,000 spins in a week, becoming the first song to officially reach that total on a published update.

Four singles are new to the top 40 on this week’s chart. The highest of them comes from Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber, who race in at #37 with “Monster”. It’s the 11th top 40 song for Mendes and the 32nd for Bieber, both of whom are currently on the chart with other records from their respective forthcoming albums. Lil Nas X leaps from 46-38 with “Holiday”, his third top 40 hit at the format. Lifting from 41-39, Joji picks up his second top 40 tune and first on his own with “Your Man”. Finally, “Hawái” breezes into the top 40 for Maluma and The Weeknd, moving from 44-40. It’s their first and 16th top 40 entries at the format, respectively.

After a release on Thursday night, Miley Cyrus and Dua Lipa land at #49 with “Prisoner”. Meanwhile, “Hawái” isn’t the only tune on the rise for The Weeknd this week, as his solo release “Save Your Tears” bounces in at #50.

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. Make sure to put these records on your new playlist, because these tunes are what’s popping at the format this week:

THE GOLDN RULE: 24KGoldn and Iann Dior aren’t going anywhere fast, as their song “Mood” secures a fourth week at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart. The collaboration also recently led the Rhythmic chart, but has since dropped out of the top spot.

Billie Eilish has a strong start at #34 with her sixth top 40 single, “Therefore I Am”. It also enters the top 40 on the Alternative list this week, while appearing slightly lower in the top 50 at the Hot AC format. Additionally, newcomer Ritt Momney jumps from 41-39 with his first top 40 entry, a cover of Corinne Bailey Rae‘s “Put Your Records On” that is also charting at Alternative radio.

There are three debuts in the top 50 this week: Lil Nas X brings a seasonal sound to the format with “Holiday”, which starts at #46. One spot lower, newcomer Ashnikko is in at #47 with “Daisy”, which recently made the top 40 in the U.K. and Ireland. Lastly, The Kid LAROI achieves his first entry at the format at #50 with “So Done”, which impacts in two weeks.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 8, 2020)

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. The Top 40 radio panel should be electing a new #1 song later this month, but until then, let’s see what’s popping at the format this week:

YOU’RE GOLDN: 24KGoldn and Iann Dior remain very strong at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the third week in a row with “Mood”. The single gained more than 1,100 spins vs. last week and is well over 3,000 spins ahead of the song at #2. The summit will probably be pretty moody again next week, as the collaboration earns a fourth frame at the top.

Ariana Grande earns her 24th top 40 hit at the format with “34+35”, leaping from 45-33. It’s the second single to enter the top 40 from her recent #1 album Positions. Salem Ilese is also on the move with a recent viral TikTok hit “Mad At Disney”, up from 41-40 this week. It’s her first top 40 entry here.

In the top 50, Maluma‘s “Hawái” debuts at #47 on the chart, thanks in part to a new remix that features The Weeknd. Landing at #50, MAX starts on the chart with “Blueberry Eyes”, a collaboration that includes SUGA of the well-known K-pop group BTS. The song can be found on MAX’s album Colour Vision, which was released in September.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 1, 2020)

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. The mood is right once again for the newest songs and stats from the top of the pop airwaves. Let’s see what’s popping at the format this week:

GOLDN YEARS: 24KGoldn and Iann Dior score a second week at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart with “Mood”. The big hit is well ahead of its nearest competitor by over 2,900 spins and should manage a third frame at the summit quite easily. Meanwhile, it stays in the runner-up position on this week’s Rhythmic chart update, with little movement elsewhere.

Moving into the top 40 this week, G-Eazy and Blackbear lift from 42-36 with “Hate The Way”, becoming their tenth and sixth top 40 entries at the format, respectively. The label/collective Internet Money leaps from 43-38 with “Lemonade”, their collaboration with Gunna, Don Toliver and Nav. This track marks the first top 40 hit for all four performers here, but they’ve all seen prior top 40 action at the Rhythmic and Urban formats. Finally, the late Pop Smoke scores his first top 40 entry here with “What You Know ‘Bout Love”, a song that you know is up from 41-39.

After reaching the top 20 this week with the title cut from her new album Positions, which was released on Friday, Ariana Grande debuts at #45 with her second single from the set: “34+35”. Format newcomer Ritt Momney has his first entry at #49 with a cover of “Put Your Records On”. The track was originally a top ten hit at the AC, Hot AC and Triple A formats for Corinne Bailey Rae in 2006 and 2007. (It didn’t reach the Top 40 list at the time.) Finally, Marshmello and Imanbek are new at #50 this week with the Usher-assisted “Too Much”. Usher hopes to score his first top 40 hit at the format since the summer of 2015.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (October 25, 2020)

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. We hope you’re in the mood for some songs and stats. Let’s see what’s popping at the format this week:

HEART OF GOLDN: Format newcomers 24KGoldn and Iann Dior leap from 3-1 on the Top 40 chart with “Mood”. The song is doing well across several other U.S. formats: it climbs to #2 on this week’s Rhythmic chart and is moving through the top 15 and top 25 on the Alternative and Hot AC radio charts, respectively.

Ariana Grande has the week’s top new entry with “Positions”, a song that blasts into the #28 spot after only two days of airplay. It marks the singer’s 23rd top 40 single at this format. It’s also the title cut from her upcoming album, which is out on Friday. Up from 45-34 on the survey, Bebe Rexha and Doja Cat are moving quickly with “Baby, I’m Jealous”. The entry gives the two women their 17th and fourth top 40 hits, respectively. Harry Styles is next in line, as he rises from 47-39 with his sixth solo top 40 hit and third from his Fine Line album, “Golden”. Lastly, up a single notch to #40, Madison Beer achieves her third top 40 single with “Baby”.

In the top 50, G-Eazy and Blackbear come in at #42 with “Hate The Way”, their first charting collaboration. Joji checks in at #47 with the song he hopes will become his second top 40 single at the format, “Your Man”. Singer and songwriter Julia Michaels also makes it onto the list this week with “Lie Like This”, which starts at #48, while Bea Miller sneaks in at #49 with “Feel Something”.

For those of you craving some Ocean Spray and a little Fleetwood Mac, the legendary group’s 1977 chart-topper turned 2020 viral hit “Dreams” would’ve been at #52 this week if it was converted back to current status. If any changes are made, we’ll let you know.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (September 22, 2020)

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 Sam Smith witness some triple-digit love at the Top 40 format, but which of their diamonds is the jewel of the panel? Let’s add ’em up:

O “HOLY” FIGHT: The race was tight for the week’s Most Added single, but in the battle of the one-word titles, “Holy” found the faith to blast past “Diamonds”. Bieber and Chance The Rapper‘s new collaboration together secured 165 stations on impact, just ahead of Smith’s still impressive 145. The pair of pop winners are already well into the top 40 at this format and should continue to make some moves through the fall. On Monday, “Diamonds” snuck ahead of “Holy” to become the Most Added track at the Hot AC format, but the top spot on today’s report at the Rhythmic format went to “Holy”.

Last week’s top song, Marshmello and Demi Lovato‘s “OK Not To Be OK”, settled for third place with 29 more adds this week.

Charting singles from Tate McRae and Zoe Wees returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next week for more adds action!
