ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (July 10, 2018)

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: superstars Drake and Justin Timberlake are in their feelings with that top spot in sight, as they battle for the crown. Who’s leading the soul patrol? (Sorry, Taylor Hicks, not you.) Let’s add ’em up:

YOUR “SOUL” PROVIDER: With our holiday week in the rearview mirror, the Top 40 radio panel gets back to work with some cool new records in the heat of the summer. Of the most notable releases entering the top ten this week, “In My Feelings” by Drake and “SoulMate” by Justin Timberlake lead the way. It was a close race for most of the day, but in the end… yes, it was a tie! Each of the two songs reported 34 adds this week, which gives both “Feelings” and “SoulMate” bragging rights. Will either of these releases hold onto the top spot all on their own next week? We’ll see next Tuesday evening.

Elsewhere, Ella Mai‘s recent Urban radio chart-topper “Boo’d Up” scores a solid third place finish with 21 new stations. “Magic In The Hamptons” also gives new duo Social House a potential future hit at the pop format, as the Lil Yachty-assisted track scores 15 stations on impact, good for a fourth place finish.

Watch out for Juice WRLD‘s “Lucid Dreams”, a streaming monster that impacts here a week from now.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (July 3, 2018)

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: it’s a hit holiday, with minimal action in the top ten. However, we can dive into the “Ocean” for some great action from Martin Garrix and Khalid, as proven radio records by Alessia Cara, Bebe Rexha and others continue to score. Let’s add ’em up:

WHAT A MESS SHE’S MADE: With most radio programmers headed for a well-deserved break over the next few days, most of the top ten songs on this week’s report are relatively unchanged from the last few weeks. Rexha’s “I’m A Mess” repeats at #1, with a second week total of 30 adds, as “Remind Me To Forget”, the collaboration from Kygo featuring Miguel that’s been chosen for On The Verge programming by radio giant iHeartMedia, lands in second place with 24 new stations.

The only new track of note this week is that reactive collaboration from Garrix and Khalid, “Ocean”, which scores at 21 stations this Tuesday for a fourth place finish. It should approach the top 50 by the weekend. Next week, look out for the debut single by Social House, the Lil Yachty-assisted “Magic In The Hamptons”, to impact at the format. Happy 4th of July!

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. BEBE REXHA, “I’m A Mess” (Warner Bros.)
2. KYGO featuring MIGUEL, “Remind Me To Forget” (Ultra/RCA)
3. ALESSIA CARA, “Growing Pains” (Def Jam)
4. MARTIN GARRIX featuring KHALID, “Ocean” (RCA)
5. 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Youngblood” (Capitol)
6. NICKI MINAJ featuring ARIANA GRANDE, “Bed” (YMCMB/Republic)
7-T. CARDI B, BAD BUNNY & J BALVIN, “I Like It” (KSR Group/Atlantic)
7-T. MEGHAN TRAINOR, “Let You Be Right” (Epic)
9. POST MALONE, “Better Now” (Republic)
10-T. SABRINA CARPENTER, “Almost Love” (Hollywood)
10-T. TIESTO & DZEKO featuring PREME and POST MALONE, “Jackie Chan” (Casablanca/Republic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 26, 2018)

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: expect the expected (you know, a great adds session) from Bebe Rexha‘s latest single, while a months-old record gets a jolt from a radio giant. Let’s add ’em up:

THAT’S THE WAY IT SHOULD BEBE: From her first full-length album Expectations, which was released on Friday, it’s Bebe Rexha taking the top spot on this week’s Top 40 report with “I’m A Mess”, scoring 57 adds on impact. That total puts “Mess” ahead of recent winners by acts like Alessia Cara and Nicki Minaj/Ariana Grande, though they’re still bouncing around the top five.

It’s also a very good week for Kygo and Miguel‘s “Remind Me To Forget”, which has been receiving airplay for several weeks now. Thanks to a new campaign with iHeartMedia, which was introduced at Cannes Lions last week, the song is new at 36 stations. That sum is enough for second place on the leaderboard and will provide enough momentum to propel it into the top 50 soon.

With no new titles scheduled to impact and fewer station reports next week, largely due to the July 4th holiday, numbers should be on the low side and a large amount of the top ten will remain unchanged. That being said, something could always surprise…

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. BEBE REXHA, “I’m A Mess” (Warner Bros.)
2. KYGO featuring MIGUEL, “Remind Me To Forget” (Ultra/RCA)
3-T. ALESSIA CARA, “Growing Pains” (Def Jam)
3-T. NICKI MINAJ featuring ARIANA GRANDE, “Bed” (YMCMB/Republic)
5. 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Youngblood” (Capitol)
6. POST MALONE, “Better Now” (Republic)
7-T. SABRINA CARPENTER, “Almost Love” (Hollywood)
7-T. YEARS & YEARS, “If You’re Over Me” (Interscope)
9-T. KHALID x NORMANI, “Love Lies” (Right Hand/Keep Cool/RCA)
9-T. MEGHAN TRAINOR, “Let You Be Right” (Epic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 19, 2018)

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: can you stand the pop pains of a split panel? Alessia Cara‘s “Pains” get a prescription for Top 40 traction, while Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande head to “Bed” for some Z’s and prominent stations. It is time to add ’em up:

GROW WITH THE FLOW: With four #1 songs to date at the format, Alessia Cara is well on her way to securing a fifth. Cara’s new one is “Growing Pains”, which easily secures the Most Added spot on this week’s Top 40 report, putting up 112 stations during its impact date today. Cara’s sophomore album is due sometime later this year.

Making a strong case for second place, labelmates Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande know how to talk the pillow talk with “Bed”, the first pop single from Minaj’s forthcoming album Queen. It blasts off with 46 stations on impact. The collaboration flew to #1 on iTunes upon release last Thursday. The two women are now teaming up on “The Light Is Coming”, a song from Grande’s upcoming album Sweetener. Much like “Bed”, expect that single to easily top the all-genre chart at iTunes tomorrow.

Elsewhere, impacting titles from Sabrina Carpenter and a Tiësto-led collaboration enter the top five and top ten, respectively.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. ALESSIA CARA, “Growing Pains” (Def Jam)
2. NICKI MINAJ featuring ARIANA GRANDE, “Bed” (YMCMB/Republic)
3. POST MALONE, “Better Now” (Republic)
4. 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Youngblood” (Capitol)
5. SABRINA CARPENTER, “Almost Love” (Hollywood)
6. CARDI B, BAD BUNNY & J BALVIN, “I Like It” (KSR Group/Atlantic)
7-T. KHALID x NORMANI, “Love Lies” (Right Hand/Keep Cool/RCA)
7-T. MAROON 5 featuring CARDI B, “Girls Like You” (222/Interscope)
9-T. MEGHAN TRAINOR, “Let You Be Right” (Epic)
9-T. TIËSTO & DZEKO featuring PREME & POST MALONE, “Jackie Chan” (Casablanca/Republic)

Another youthful chart-topper.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 12, 2018)

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: different Tuesday, same Cardi B madness! Plus, the panel is split over its plethora of new pop jams, but two notable collaborations jump ahead of the pack. Let’s add ’em up:

B IS FOR BIGGER: Change can be difficult at times, so for those of you that don’t like the concept, I think you’ll be satisfied with waiting another week before the next new Most Added song is crowned. Meanwhile, this week’s top title at the Top 40 format, now in its second week, is “Girls Like You” by Maroon 5, which is still generating a lot of buzz on the charts for its new remix featuring the previously mentioned Cardi B. This week, it checks in with another 47 stations, down from the 108 it took in on impact. There’s a tie for second place between Cardi B’s “I Like It”, with Bad Bunny and J Balvin, and “Better Now” from Post Malone, as both hits land a solid 36 stations each. All three tracks are racing up the Top 40 chart, though it’s very early on in the annual race for the coveted Song Of The Summer title. Stay tuned to see if any of them capture it (or if another song surprises. You never know!)

Beyond those three singles, plenty of impacting songs scored double-digit adds in this session, led by future Pride anthem “Colour” by MNEK featuring Hailee Steinfeld with 23 stations, coming in fourth place. It looks like it’ll become MNEK’s first top 40 song in two years, as he previously charted with Zara Larsson on the duet “Never Forget You”, reaching #5 at the format that May. It’s also a very good week for “Team”, which has Noah Cyrus and MAX thanking their new team of believers, 18 in all, which starts it in seventh place. Yesterday, it picked up a handful of Hot AC stations as well. Check out the rest of this week’s future hits below!

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. MAROON 5 featuring CARDI B, “Girls Like You” (222/Interscope)
2-T. CARDI B, BAD BUNNY & J BALVIN, “I Like It” (KSR Group/Atlantic)
2-T. POST MALONE, “Better Now” (Republic)
4-T. 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Youngblood” (Capitol)
4-T. MNEK featuring HAILEE STEINFELD, “Colour” (Capitol)
6. NOAH CYRUS & MAX, “Team” (RECORDS/RED/Columbia)
7. CHILDISH GAMBINO, “This Is America” (Wolf & Rothstein/RCA)
8-T. DAVID GUETTA & SIA, “Flames” (Big Beat/RRP)
8-T. PHARRELL WILLIAMS x CAMILA CABELLO, “Sangria Wine” (Columbia)
8-T. SABRINA CARPENTER, “Almost Love” (Hollywood)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 5, 2018)

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: the radio report is brought to you by the letter B, as in Cardi B, and other top letters and numbers from across the pop panel. Let’s add ’em up:

IT’S A GIRL THING: As those June tunes invade the pop airwaves, one lands well above the rest this Tuesday. Of course, it’s not a surprise that this week’s Most Added song at the Top 40 format is “Girls Like You” by Maroon 5, with a new remix featuring the previously mentioned Cardi B. Now, this comes at the same time that her new radio single as a lead act, “I Like It”, with Latin stars Bad Bunny and J Balvin, is also breaking out at the format. I guess there’s a whole lot to like about her, heh? In any case, “Girls” puts up a very strong 108 stations on impact, while “I Like” grabs another 38 stations, finishing in third place. The original version of “Girls” can be found on the group’s 2017 release Red Pill Blues. Cardi B’s Invasion Of Privacy continues to draw large streaming numbers week-to-week.

As he makes his way to #1 at the format with the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted “Psycho”, Post Malone is also having a super week with the follow-up single, “Better Now”. During its impact week, it scored 46 stations, settling for the runner-up spot. “Better” also went to the Rhythmic format this week, where it also took second place with a solid 25 new stations on impact. The song snuck in at #50 on last Sunday’s published update, and should have a substantial gain (in both spins and position) by this coming weekend.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. MAROON 5 featuring CARDI B, “Girls Like You” (222/Interscope)
2. POST MALONE, “Better Now” (Republic)
3. CARDI B, BAD BUNNY & J BALVIN, “I Like It” (KSR Group/Atlantic)
4. BACKSTREET BOYS, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” (RCA)
5. MEGHAN TRAINOR, “Let You Be Right” (Epic)
6. BTS, “Fake Love” (Columbia)
7. PHARRELL WILLIAMS x CAMILA CABELLO, “Sangria Wine” (Columbia)
8. 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Youngblood” (Capitol)
9. SOFIA REYES featuring JASON DERULO & DE LA GHETTO, “1, 2, 3” (Warner Bros.)
10. CASH CASH featuring ABIR, “Finest Hour” (Big Beat/RRP)
