RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 6, 2020)

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. With the holiday freeze approaching, slower weeks are ahead, but not before some decent December action on the charts. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

SEVEN GOLDN WEEKS: 24KGoldn and Iann Dior stay at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the seventh consecutive week with “Mood”, tying for the longest run of the year so far along with top titles from Harry Styles and The Weeknd. “Mood” is still more than 1,600 spins ahead of the song in the runner-up position.

Two newcomers reach the top 40 with their first chart singles: The Kid LAROI soars from 44-39 with “So Done”, while Ashnikko is up from 42-40 with “Daisy”. The former is currently based in Australia, while the latter is in England (but she was born and raised in North Carolina.)

Thanks to a newly-released remix that features Demi Lovato, who is not currently credited on Mediabase, the current #1 hit on the Alternative chart by All Time Low and Blackbear enters at #46. “Monsters” is the third song by the band to reach the top 50 here since their debut in 2011. Following the collaborative trend, David Guetta and Sia are also new at #48 with “Let’s Love”, as Sigala and James Arthur come in at #50 with “Lasting Lover”.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (November 24, 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: Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber have a monster musical moment at the format as the panel’s pick of the week. Let’s add ’em up:

“MONSTER” MASHES: The dynamic duo of Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber have this week’s Most Added song at the Top 40 format with “Monster”, scaring up 135 stations on impact. The new single debuted at #37 over the weekend, becoming the 11th top 40 hit on the chart for Mendes and the 32nd for Bieber. “Monster” brought in another 41 stations and a first place finish at the Hot AC format yesterday.

Miley Cyrus and Dua Lipa settled into second place this week with 74 stations for their new collaboration called “Prisoner”. The song edged inside the top 50 on last Sunday’s official update at #49, but should much higher by the weekend. Yesterday, it came in fourth on the adds report at the Hot AC format, two weeks ahead of its impact date there, earning eight stations.

He was shut out of the GRAMMYs nominations, but The Weeknd is certainly loved by the Top 40 radio panel: he impacted today with “Save Your Tears”, which scored 4- stations and a third place finish. It ranked at #50 last Sunday and will also be on the rise.

Charting singles from Lil Nas X and Ritt Momney returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

Next week: the new Kid on the block, The Kid LAROI, officially impacts with his buzzing song “So Done”. (See more below.)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 15, 2020)

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. Make sure to put these records on your new playlist, because these tunes are what’s popping at the format this week:

THE GOLDN RULE: 24KGoldn and Iann Dior aren’t going anywhere fast, as their song “Mood” secures a fourth week at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart. The collaboration also recently led the Rhythmic chart, but has since dropped out of the top spot.

Billie Eilish has a strong start at #34 with her sixth top 40 single, “Therefore I Am”. It also enters the top 40 on the Alternative list this week, while appearing slightly lower in the top 50 at the Hot AC format. Additionally, newcomer Ritt Momney jumps from 41-39 with his first top 40 entry, a cover of Corinne Bailey Rae‘s “Put Your Records On” that is also charting at Alternative radio.

There are three debuts in the top 50 this week: Lil Nas X brings a seasonal sound to the format with “Holiday”, which starts at #46. One spot lower, newcomer Ashnikko is in at #47 with “Daisy”, which recently made the top 40 in the U.K. and Ireland. Lastly, The Kid LAROI achieves his first entry at the format at #50 with “So Done”, which impacts in two weeks.
