RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 19, 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 a weekend full of women and other wonderous song titles, let’s see what’s popping at the format this week:

FREEZE WITH EASE: As the annual holiday freeze settles in, Adele sits at #1 on the Top 40 chart for a third week with “Easy On Me”. At the Hot AC radio format, the international hit leads the chart for a fifth week. Her latest album 30 is expected to sell well through the holiday season and into 2022, as follow-up “Oh My God” continues its ascent in the top 20 at both formats.

The collective 88rising and singer BIBI climb from 42-37 with “The Weekend”, their second and first top 40 hits, respectively. TWICE has their first top 40 single with “The Feels”, as the girl group jumps from 41-39 this week. Finally, Latto hits the jackpot and climbs from 44-40 with “Big Energy”. Her first pop hit is already performing well at the Rhythmic (#4) and Urban (#8) radio formats.

This week’s top 50 entries have a feminine touch: chart regular Doja Cat enters at #41 with “Woman”, while format newcomer Emmy Meli lands at #47 with “I Am Woman”. Look for both songs to really take off early next year.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 21, 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 a musical and monetary experience, here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

THE KID STAYS AROUND: Back at the #1 spot on the chart, The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber score an 11th nonconsecutive week at the summit with “Stay”. The smash extends its reign as the longest-running #1 tune at the Top 40 format this year. “Stay” is also a week away from tying the plays-per-week era record for the most weeks at #1 on the survey, a feat established by Donna Lewis in November 1996 with “I Love You Always Forever”.

The duo Silk Sonic (consisting of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak) rises from 44-28 on the chart with “Smokin’ Out The Window”, the third top 40 hit from the duo’s An Evening With Silk Sonic album. Individually, it’s their 24th and third chart entries, respectively. Up 46-39, “Message In A Bottle” gives Taylor Swift her 34th top 40 single to date. The song can be found on Red (Taylor’s Version), which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

LISA is counting coins and chart positions, as she lands at #43 with “Money”. It’s the first solo appearance for the BLACKPINK member. A remix of “Do It To It” starts at #46, as producer ACRAZE makes his debut. The tune also soars from 4-1 on the Dance radio chart. The group who originally sang it (Cherish) is credited in a featured role: their original track reached #6 in August 2006. Finally, “The Weekend” is new to the top 50, as the collective 88rising and soloist Bibi settle into the #50 spot.
