RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (March 28, 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. For all your Passover pop activity, including more than a few songs passing over others on the survey, here’s a look at what’s moving at the format this week:

END OF THE DRIVE: Chart smash “Driver’s License” from Olivia Rodrigo cruises to a fifth week at the top of the pop chart. In the next few days, it will likely relinquish the chart crown to Billie Eilish, whose “Therefore I Am” is still gaining as it holds at #2.

Another week, another Justin Bieber debut. His 35th top 40 hit is “Peaches”, which scores a sweet start at #29. The track features Daniel Caesar and Givēon, who both score their first top 40 single to date at the format. Ariana Grande‘s “POV” is next at #34, which becomes her 25th top 40 hit at the format. Her new single was last Tuesday’s Most Added song at the format, while “Peaches” secured a second place finish. Format newcomers Lil Tjay and 6LACK are dialing up a hit in “Calling My Phone”, soaring from 43-37 this week. The collaboration is still rising quickly through the top 20 on both the Rhythmic and Urban lists, where both acts have charted previously. Up next, “Sunshine (The Light)” shines on the chart, up from 41-39 for Fat Joe, DJ Khaled and Amorphous. This marks the fifth top 40 hit and first in 16 years for Fat Joe, the 11th for DJ Khaled and the first for Amorphous. Finally, Duncan Laurence appears on the Top 40 radio chart with his first entry, “Arcade”, which debuts at #40. In 2019, it took the top prize at the Eurovision Song Contest and is now the first winning title from the competition to hit the this list since 1976’s “Save Your Kisses For Me” by Brotherhood Of Man, which reached #36 on the CHR survey in Radio & Records that June.

In the top 50, the aforementioned Givēon comes in at #45 with his own “Heartbreak Anniversary”. The track is also approaching the top 40 at the Rhythmic and Urban radio formats. At #47, Ashe and Finneas enter with the duet “Till Forever Falls Apart”. Finneas has written and/or produced a number of chart titles, including those for his sister Billie Eilish, but has never ranked in the top 50 as an artist. The viral hit “Telepatía” by newcomer Kali Uchis aparece en la lista de radio en #49 (or appears on the list at #49.) We have one final song in the #50 spot, coming from NF and the title cut from his recent mixtape Clouds. The set is expected to place in the top five on next week’s Billboard 200 update.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 9, 2021)

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: Maroon 5 and Megan Thee Stallion keep the adds report looking very beautiful. Let’s add ’em up:

MAROONED AT THE TOP: With 145 stations on impact, Maroon 5 and Megan Thee Stallion earn the week’s Most Added track at the Top 40 format with “Beautiful Mistakes”, a song that has already entered the top 30 as of last weekend. The song also scored 72 adds at the Hot AC format yesterday, more than enough to lead that report too. Look for it to continue to grow into the spring.

The new duo Silk Sonic, comprised of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, finishes in second place with 129 stations for “Leave The Door Open”. The tune also took the runner-up spot at the Hot AC and Rhythmic formats with 48 and 44 adds, respectively. At R&B (f/k/a Urban AC) radio, it paced well ahead of the competition with 53 adds on impact and a Most Added win.

Bebe Rexha also had a pretty good day with “Sacrifice”, earning 44 adds on impact and a third place finish. It’s the follow-up to a recent top 20 entry at the format, the Doja Cat-assisted “Baby, I’m Jealous”, which got as high as #19 in December.

Charting singles from Cardi B, Daya and Glass Animals returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

Taking flight on next week’s adds report: the impacting “Fly Away” by Tones And I, among other titles.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN

Chart Notes:

  • Harry Styles scores his third solo #1 single on my personal chart, as “Golden” advances from 3-1 this week. It’s the second from the Fine Line album: “Adore You” spent three weeks at the summit in February and March. New at #31 this week, Taylor Swift has the highest of three new entries in the countdown with “Willow”, the lead single from her surprise release Evermore. The companion set to Folklore will start at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart later this month. The late Chris Cornell lands at #36 with a remake of John Lennon’s posthumous 1981 hit “Watching The Wheels”. It’s taken from a Cornell covers album that came out on Friday, No One Sings Like You Anymore. Lastly, Gwen Stefani comes in at #40 with “Let Me Reintroduce Myself”. It’s appropriate considering that this track marks her first to reach my chart since the summer of 2016.

Chart Notes:

  • Dua Lipa holds strong at #1 for the third week with “Levitating”, one of four singles she currently has on my personal chart. One of them comes in as this week’s Highest Debut: a collaboration with Miley Cyrus titled “Prisoner”, which bows at #34. Cyrus, likely Lipa, went to the top recently with “Midnight Sky”, which plants itself at #2 again. The only other entry in the countdown is from Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber with “Monster”, which is new at #38. Mendes also holds at #8 with the title cut from his upcoming album Wonder.
