RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (April 12, 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. Though Passover and Easter might feel a bit different this year, there’s still plenty of new music to go around. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

LONELY WEEKND: With his third #1 hit to date at the Top 40 format, The Weeknd moves from 2-1 with “Blinding Lights”. It’s the first chart-topper from his recent album After Hours, which has held atop the Billboard 200 list for three weeks now. The smash is also lighting up the Rhythmic and Hot AC radio charts, where it climbs to #5 and #6 this week, respectively.

Flying in at #36 with their seventh top 40 hit, Twenty One Pilots take to the air with “Level Of Concern”, a one-off single that was released several days ago. Powfu and Beabadoobee push their viral track “Coffee For Your Head (Death Bed)” up from 47-37 this week, marking the first top 40 entry for both performers. Both “Level” and “Coffee” are already performing well at Alternative radio, with the former launching at #20 and the latter climbing to #17 on the latest chart. Finally, Ellie Goulding and Blackbear rise up from 45-40 with “Worry About Me”. It’s the 14th top 40 song at the format for Goulding and the third for Blackbear.

With a number of reemerging songs in the top 50 thanks to the vacuum effect from a larger purge, just two titles are completely new to region this week. Debuting at #44, PartyNextDoor and Rihanna‘s collaboration “Believe It” blasts onto the Top 40 survey. It’s already well into the top 40 on both the Rhythmic and Urban lists. Another collaboration starts at #49: the current top 20 hit on the Hot AC chart for JP Saxe and Julia Michaels titled “If The World Was Ending”. The track is already a larger radio and sales hit in Saxe’s native Canada and has reached the top 40 nationally in some European territories.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 7, 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: It’s plain toosie which song wins at the format, as Drake‘s latest hit starts with a big first week launch. Who else shuffles onto the list? Let’s add ’em up:

SLIDING INTO FIRST: With 131 adds in its impact week, Drake’s “Toosie Slide” is definitely getting some Top 40 programmers on their feet. The song easily captures the top spot on this week’s list and also leads the reports at both Rhythmic and Urban radio.

As radio comes back to life following some slower weeks, largely due to the uncertainty of the current health pandemic, three other impacting songs also slide into or move up within the top ten. Rising into second place with 34 new stations this week, Powfu and Beabadoobee‘s “Coffee For Your Head (Death Bed)” is caffeinated up and charging towards the top 40. Locked in a three-way tie for seventh place with 18 adds on the report, Megan Thee Stallion‘s “Savage” hopes to give her a second top 40 entry on the pop radio chart. The new Martin Garrix and Clinton Kane collaboration also steps into tenth place, as “Drown” scores 17 stations.

Charting songs from Dua Lipa, Lauv and The Weeknd are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap. Stay safe out there.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. DRAKE, “Toosie Slide” (OVO/Republic)
2. POWFU featuring BEABADOOBEE, “Coffee For Your Head (Death Bed)” (Robots & Humans/Columbia)
3. DUA LIPA, “Break My Heart” (Warner)
4. SURFACES, “Sunday Best” (10K Projects/Capitol)
5. THE WEEKND, “In Your Eyes” (XO/Republic)
6. LAUV, “Modern Loneliness” (AWAL/in2une)
