RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 2, 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. This week’s pop chart is feeling more powerful than before, so here’s what’s feeling the force at the format this week:

AS “TEARS” GO BY: “Save Your Tears” is safe for a second week at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart, as The Weeknd‘s hit continues to climb in airplay at the format. The song also holds at #2 on the Hot AC chart, just behind labelmate Taylor Swift‘s “Willow”. As for next week, the pop chart is looking peachy, but we can wait on that one…

In the top 40, Regard, Troye Sivan and Tate McRae bounce from 41-32 with “You”, earning the three artists their third, sixth and second top 40 hits, respectively. After debuting on Thursday, Billie Eilish powers through the top 40 and into the #34 spot with “Your Power”. The song becomes her seventh top 40 entry and third from her upcoming album Happier Than Ever. Lifting from 43-39 on the list, AJ Mitchell makes it into the region with “Stop”, which goes ahead to become his fourth top 40 hit. Finally, TikTok stars Nessa Barrett and Jxdn enter the top 40 with the collaboration “La Di Die”, a recent top 20 single on the Alternative chart, which jumps from 48-40. This is the first top 40 song on the pop airwaves for both performers.

Newcomer Sara Kays leads another handful of releases making their first entry into the top 50 at the format, with “Remember That Night?” coming in at #46. Her song has already reached the top 15 at the Triple A format. Mooski lands at #48 with “Track Star”, which is now at #2 at the Urban format following a viral moment earlier this year. Finally, Veronika is in at #49 with “Homesick”.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (April 18, 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. Some golden goods are shining on the survey, so here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

TATE AT THE PLATE: As baseball begins to dominate the TV, Tate McRae hits a home run with “You Broke Me First”, which climbs 4-1. The enduring hit scores the top spot after 28 innings… uh, rather, weeks on the chart, making it the slowest run to the top of the pop chart by a female artist. “You” finished only 92 spins ahead of The Weeknd‘s “Save Your Tears”, which advances from 3-2 and will inevitably park at the summit soon.

Singer GIVĒON, who you can find in a featured spot on Justin Bieber‘s “Peaches”, lifts from 41-38 with “Heartbreak Anniversary”. It’s his second top 40 hit to date, which comes as “Peaches” leaps from 13-11. Meanwhile, Kali Uchis also climbs from 44-39 on this week’s list with “Telepatía”, which is her first top 40 hit. It’s one of the many recent songs on the survey to move from a breakout on TikTok to the pop chart.

Four new releases check into the top 50 this week, led by Demi Lovato and Ariana Grande at #44 with “Met Him Last Night”. Lovato has now landed in the top 50 twice in April, as “Dancing With The Devil” (now replaced with “Met”) entered and peaked at #40 two weeks ago. It also continues Grande’s hot streak at the format, as she looks to hold four simultaneous positions in the top 40 next week. A bit further down the list, Sofia Carson is in at #46 with “Fool’s Gold”, with newcomer Annika Wells gliding in at #49 with “Sucks Being Sober”. The last of the new songs in the top 50 is by a labelmate of Wells: AJ Mitchell, who gets going with “Stop” in the #50 spot.
