ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (January 16, 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: Five becomes one, as Maroon 5 is the one at the top of the list, and some new songs break into the top ten on and before their impact date. My my my — let’s add ’em up!

WORTH THE “WAIT”: With their follow-up to the SZA-assisted “What Lovers Do”, Maroon 5, who are more like Maroon 7 at this point, score this week’s Most Added song with “Wait”, chalking up 55 stations on impact. Their newest single is taken from the album Red Pill Blues, which was released in November. Already ranking in the top 50, and gaining well day-to-day, “Wait” is likely to secure a place in the top 40 in the coming days. The only other impacting release this week, ranking at #8, is “Beg” from the duo Jack & Jack, which launches with 13 adds on impact. It’s the first song from the two 21-year-olds to go for adds at the format, but they’ve been releasing a lot of music independently for several years now, which has reacted on Vine and YouTube. Watch out for a couple of pre-impact pop winners from singer Troye Sivan, blasting in with 24 stations for “My My My!” (#4) in its first week, as well as Alice Merton, new at 14 stations for “No Roots” (#7) in its biggest frame to date. The former title goes for adds next week, while the latter title heads to the format on February 13, as it rides high on the Alternative and Triple A charts.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (TWELVE)
1. MAROON 5, “Wait” (222/Interscope)
2*. BRUNO MARS & CARDI B, “Finesse” (Atlantic) (*original and remix versions combined)
3*. LIAM PAYNE & RITA ORA, “For You (Fifty Shades Freed)” (Republic) (**#2 if Mars’s songs counted separately)
4. TROYE SIVAN, “My My My!” (Capitol)
5. CAMILA CABELLO, “Never Be The Same” (Syco/Epic)
6. EMINEM featuring ED SHEERAN, “River” (Shady/Interscope)
7. ALICE MERTON, “No Roots” (Mom + Pop/RED)
8. JACK & JACK, “Beg” (Island/Republic)
9. ALAN WALKER featuring NOAH CYRUS & DIGITAL FARM ANIMALS, “All Falls Down” (RCA)

10-T. P!NK, “Beautiful Trauma” (RCA)

NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of February 3, 2017

Big Sean, Big debut.

Big Sean, Big debut.

Flip for some February fun in our latest releases post, including top sets from the world of gospel, pop, rap and more. Here are some of this week’s new albums and singles:

BIG SEAN – I Decided. (iTunes)
The Santa Monica rapper last released an album in 2015, so he’s bouncing back into the spotlight with a fresh set that’s likely to be in the running for the top spot next week. “Bounce Back” is currently in the top five on both Rhythmic and Urban radio, while it starts a run at the CHR/Top 40 format. The album features additional collaborations with Eminem and Jeremih.

REBA MCENTIRE – Sing It Now: Songs Of Faith & Hope (iTunes)
Is it possible to hate Reba? I don’t think so. Though it’s getting increasingly harder for her new songs to hit the Country airwaves, the new studio album from the legendary singer is a Gospel one, featuring a surprise sales hit in “Back To God”. With a mix of traditional hymns and original songs, it’s sure to get some love from her fans. Look for a decent debut next week.

MUNA – About U (iTunes)
This trio has my top pick of the week, an amazing effort full of catchy pop songs that also deliver a musical message. Current single “I Know A Place” is getting some Hot AC airplay, while former single “Loudspeaker” touched the top 50 on Triple A radio.

More albums out this week: Kari Jobe‘s The Garden (iTunes), RuPaul‘s Remember Me: Essential, Vol. 1 (iTunes), Wyclef Jean‘s J’ouvert (iTunes), Young Dolph‘s Gelato (iTunes), Dear Evan Hansen (Cast Recording) (iTunes)
