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!

2. SAM SMITH, “Diamonds” (Capitol)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (August 25, 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: Snap, crackle… BTS pops at the Top 40 format in a big way! Let’s add ’em up:

BEYOND THE ADDS: To no one’s surprise, BTS and their new single “Dynamite” are absolutely explosive at the Top 40 format, as the song blasts in with 171 adds on impact, their biggest opening to date so far. The track started at #32 on last week’s published chart and should fly up in the coming days, especially given all the new action on it. Activity has been limited for it at other formats since its release, though “Dynamite” has received some smaller airplay at both Hot AC and Rhythmic stations.

Landing in second place, up from tenth last week, 24KGoldn and Iann Dior also scored a huge win for “Mood”, in with 64 adds.

Recent TikTok hits from Claire Rosinkranz and Dixie D’Amelio also reached the top ten on the log this week: the latter’s track “Be Happy” landed in seventh place with 18 stations, while the former’s EP cut “Backyard Boy” started in eighth with 16.

Charting singles from AJRAva Max and Miley Cyrus returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap, including data on the Calvin Harris and The Weeknd collaboration that you may be bumping by the weeknd.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (August 18, 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: Miley Cyrus is sky high on the log with her latest tune, while the top five sees some major turnover. Let’s add ’em up:

“MIDNIGHT” ROCKS: The 80’s-inspired “Midnight Sky” by Miley Cyrus is today’s winner at the Top 40 format, as it struts into the adds report with 117 stations on impact. It also led yesterday’s report at Hot AC radio. Dan + Shay‘s “I Should Probably Go To Bed” followed in second place with 41 stations this week, so the format certainly wasn’t sleeping on it. Unsurprisingly, it finished in the runner-up position behind Cyrus on the same Hot AC log. The two releases are off to a great start on both charts.

In third place, Drake starts with 32 stations on impact for the Lil Durk-assisted “Laugh Now Cry Later”, which grabs the top spot on the reports at both Rhythmic and Urban radio this week. Zara Larsson also returns to the Top 40 report with 2019’s ‘Wow”. It rockets into fourth place with 22 stations during the session, which follows a prominent placement in Netflix’s Work It from earlier this month. (The song previously earned some unsolicited airplay at the format last summer.

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

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap, including data on the BTS single that’s sure to, well, explode at the format.
