RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 4, 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. These new tracks have the freedom and independence to chart at the format, so let’s see what’s popping this week:

“MORE” TO CELEBRATE: From her recent #2 album Planet Her, Doja Cat has the new #1 song on the Top 40 radio chart with “Kiss Me More”, a collaboration with SZA. This is the second #1 tune at the format for the former and the first for the latter. Next time around, the two women will face a bit of competition from Lil Nas X and Olivia Rodrigo for the top spot on the list. We’ll see what happens on Sunday.

Speaking of Doja Cat, she has this week’s highest top 40 entry with “You Right”, a collaboration with The Weeknd. Advancing from 41-24, it marks their seventh and 18th top 40 singles, respectively. Lower down, Dua Lipa has a strong debut at #37 with “Love Again”, becoming her 14th top 40 hit to date. This is the fourth entry to chart from the original release of her 2020 album Future Nostalgia, though there have been additional singles that can be found on an expanded reissue of the set from earlier this year. Lastly, Tomorrow x Together lifts from 42-40 with “Magic”, as the group claims their first top 40 hit.

Christian pop and rap artist Nic D lands at #43 with “Fine Apple”, a recent viral song on the video app TikTok. It’s his first appearance on the Top 40 chart. Meanwhile, Anne-Marie and Niall Horan come in at #45 with “Our Song”, which is currently in the top 30 at Hot AC radio.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 10, 2019)

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 chart veterans are having a decent time on the chart this week, but plenty of newcomers are also on the rise. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

LOVE FOUR “SOMEONE”: Lewis Capaldi‘s “Someone You Loved” narrowly beat Post Malone‘s “Circles” to pick up a fourth week at #1 on the Top 40 chart with a gap of about 140 spins. Don’t worry, Post Malone fans; he’ll definitely be topping the chart by next weekend. Meanwhile, Capaldi’s enduring smash ranks at #2 and #5 on the Hot AC and AC charts, respectively.

Dua Lipa makes a bold move with “Don’t Start Now”, leaping from 45-25 to become her ninth top 40 hit at the format. It’s only six spots away from the peak of her last charting hit, the soundtrack cut “Swan Song”, which spent two weeks at #19 in March. Kesha‘s 16th top 40 entry here jumps from 42-34 this week. “Raising Hell” also marks the first credited chart hit for Big Freedia. Climbing from 44-40 is the last of three top 40 entries on the survey: “Make It Right” by BTS and Lauv, who earn their fifth and sixth top 40 hits, respectively. This collaboration charts concurrently with Lauv’s “F**k, I’m Lonely”, a collaboration with Anne-Marie that lifts from 37-36.

Travis Scott‘s “Highest In The Room”, a former #1 song on the Hot 100, debuts at #44 this week. On the Rhythmic chart, the song bolts from 10-6. Format newcomer Isabela Merced, a young actress that’s largely known for her work with Nickelodeon, comes in at #49 with “Papi”. Lastly, AJR enters at #50 with “Dear Winter”, a song that also enters at #50 on this week’s Hot AC chart.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (October 13, 2019)


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. As Columbus Day comes around again, let’s sail the ocean blue for hit records and all the stats you need from the charts. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

IT KEEPS RIGHT ON A-HURTIN’: Lizzo‘s “Truth Hurts” narrowly earns a fourth week at #1 on the Top 40 radio list, landing a mere 16 spins ahead of the song at #2: the former chart-topper “Señorita” by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello. Lizzo’s smash is also back up a notch to #4 on the Rhythmic chart and leaps from 7-5 at Urban radio. This will almost certainly be the final week at #1 for the single here on the pop radio chart, but for just her second chart entry ever, it was a giant breakthrough. Look for “Good As Hell” to continue to perform here through the holidays.

Four new tunes enter the top 40 on this week’s chart. The highest, debuting on the entire chart at #30, is “10,000 Hours” by the duo Dan + Shay and Justin Bieber, who earn their third and 26th top 40 entries, respectively. This collaboration is now in the top 40 at three radio formats, with both Country and Hot AC programmers showing the song some love in the last couple of weeks. Making a move from 42-32, it’s “Lonely” by Diplo and the Jonas Brothers. Their collaboration marks the sixth solo appearance in the top 40 for Diplo and the tenth for the trio, four of which have come this year. Billie Eilish checks in at #37 with “All The Good Girls Go To Hell”, her third top 40 entry to date. It’s also in the top 20 on the latest Alternative chart update, where the singer has scored two #1 singles this year. Finishing things up with a small rise from 43-40, Lauv and Anne-Marie each score their fifth top 40 hits with “F**k, I’m Lonely”, taken from the soundtrack to the third season of 13 Reasons Why. Lauv is continuing to put out new tracks from his forthcoming album ~how i’m feeling~, a set on which this single also appears, due March 6.

Things aren’t nearly as exciting in the top 50 this week, but one of this coming Tuesday’s impacting songs breaks in at #45. “Writing On The Wall” is the new hit by French Montana, which also features Post Malone, Cardi B and Rvssian. Four spots lower, the DJ Snake, J Balvin and Tyga collaboration called “Loco Contigo” checks in at #49. The tune has never had an official impact date at the format, though it’s been steadily accumulating a handful of adds each week for some time now.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (September 15, 2019)


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 one’s a little quieter than usual, but it’s still full of bops, including some reactive soundtrack cuts on the rise. Let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

SHAWN AIN’T GONE: Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello remain strong at #1 for the fourth week on the Top 40 chart with “Señorita”, as it smashes the format’s all-time weekly record for the most spins in a week: 19,771. Could it blow past 20,000 spins in the next week? Stay tuned. Meanwhile, the song is still very active at Hot AC radio, where it climbs from 5-3 on its way to the top.

Despite some larger moves in the top 40 for emerging hits by Cabello, Post Malone and Taylor Swift, we have just one new track in the region this week: “Good As Hell”, the third top 40 entry for Lizzo, which climbs from 46-37. In 2016, this song was originally released on the soundtrack to Barbershop: The Next Cut, but it has since gained new attention in the streaming era. Lizzo also stays at #2 for the third week with “Truth Hurts”, which could still score a week at #1, as it continues to post solid gains week-to-week.

Halsey‘s “Graveyard” and Lauv‘s “F*ck, I’m Lonely”, a collaboration with Anne-Marie, are the only new titles in the top 50. They launch at #48 and #49, respectively. “Graveyard” is included on Halsey’s forthcoming album Manic, due in January. “Lonely” is the first single to chart from the soundtrack to the third season of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why, a set that also features a tune that’s headed for adds at the format on Tuesday: 5 Seconds Of Summer‘s “Teeth”. Look out for information on the latter title very soon.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (September 3, 2019)


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: Post Malone has the cure for your post-Labor Day blues, as his latest hit circles the format and squarely leads the weekly log. Let’s add ’em up:

THE SHAPE OF POP RADIO: Ahead of his highly-anticipated album Hollywood’s Bleeding, due Friday, Post Malone lands the Most Added song at Top 40 radio this Tuesday with “Circles”, scoring a big 115 stations. “Circles” snuck into the top 40 on this past Sunday’s published update at #40, so you can expect it to make a larger move by the weekend. At the Rhythmic format, the track is in second place on the log with 15 adds in its first week.

Taylor Swift also advanced with the title track from her album Lover, which received 34 stations during the session and a second place finish. Though the track has not seen a formal impact date as of yet, it’s already at #10 on the latest Billboard Hot 100 update following the album’s robust #1 debut. As “You Need To Calm Down” begins to descend in the coming weeks, look for this single to easily make the top 40 very soon.

Charting releases by Alessia Cara, Lizzo and Normani are among those prominent songs making up the rest of the top ten.

Camila Cabello looks poised to lead next week’s adds report, with new music (two songs) from her expected on Thursday.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. POST MALONE, “Circles” (Republic)
2. TAYLOR SWIFT, “Lover” (Republic)
