RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 18, 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. Gather your crew for what’s popping at the format this week:

REMEMBER THE “NAME”: Earning a second week at #1 on the Top 40 chart, Lil Nas X‘s “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” lands just 34 spins ahead of the song at #2: “Good 4 U”, a future #1 at the format for Olivia Rodrigo. Meanwhile, “Montero” advances from 3-1 on the Rhythmic chart.

Post Malone leads a pack of five debuts in the top 40, as “Motley Crew” advances from 43-29 this week. It’s his 15th top 40 song to date. Up from 46-35, Billie Eilish picks up her eighth top 40 single with “NDA”. At three letters in length, it becomes one of the shortest titles to land on the chart, though we’ve had even shorter ones historically, including “Go”, “I”, “If” and “No”. Maroon 5 secures their 30th top 40 entry at the format with another relatively short title, “Lost”, lifting from 45-37. Kane Brown and Blackbear are next at #38 with “Memory”, which debuts at that position. It’s their third and eighth top 40 hits, respectively, though Brown has earned quite a few more on the Country chart. A fifth and final title moves from 41-40 to just sneak into the region, as TikTok star Nic D scores his first top 40 hit with “Fine Apple”. The song now joins a handful of other titles containing apples or pineapples to enter the chart, including “Apples, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie”, “Little Green Apples”, “One Bad Apple” and “Pineapple Princess”.

Currently in the top 20 on both the Rhythmic and Urban charts, “Thot Sh*t” twerks onto the pop radio list for Megan Thee Stallion at #49. One spot lower, we have another significant hit from the two radio lists: “Late At Night”, debuting at #50 for Roddy Ricch.

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: new releases flew into the top four spots, but only one Kid hit the top. Let’s add ’em up:

“STAY” IN POSITION: Summer comes alive this week with a number of hot titles making their debut on the adds report. In the lead spot with 137 adds for its first week, “Stay” looks to, well, stay on the airwaves for The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber. The new hit, which was originally listed as impacting for next Tuesday, entered last week’s official chart at #38.

Post Malone was next with “Motley Crew”, starting in the runner-up position with 90 adds. It easily led this week’s report at the Rhythmic format, scoring a hefty 61 first week stations there. At Urban radio, the song was less successful: it started in ninth place with 22 adds total.

With 66 new stations, “NDA” came in third this week, as Billie Eilish earned 15 adds and a second place finish at the Alternative format.

Finally, Kane Brown and Blackbear pulled in a very respectable 52 commitments with “Memory”, which charged into fourth place.

Charting singles from Bella Poarch, Doja Cat and Maroon 5 returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next week for another action-packed adds session.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 11, 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. X marks the spot for what’s popping at the format this week:

THE “NAME” ON TOP: With his first #1 song on the Top 40 radio chart, Lil Nas X lifts from 2-1 with “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)”. The hit also advances from 5-3 at the Rhythmic format.

Debuting on the survey at #38 is the new collaboration from The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber, which uses one of the most common one-word titles of all-time: “Stay”. It’s their third and 36th top 40 hits, respectively. Rising from 42-39, “Cloudy Day” is now the third top 40 entry for Tones And I and her latest from the Welcome To The Madhouse album, due this coming Friday. Meanwhile, P!nk earns her 30th top hit with “All I Know So Far”, a song featured on the soundtrack to her Amazon documentary of the same name. It’s up a single notch to #40.

Starting at #43, Post Malone leads a solid crew of four top 50 entries with “Motley Crew”. The song also lands in the top 40 at the Rhythmic format this week. Maroon 5 is up next at #45 with “Lost”, the new single from their recent album Jordi. The track is already rising in the top 40 at Hot AC radio. A new single from Billie Eilish enters one spot lower at #46. “NDA” is the fifth song off her forthcoming album Happier Than Ever to chart at this format, this one coming about three weeks ahead of the project’s street date. Finally, Trinidad Cardona cashes in with the TikTok-approved winner “Dinero”, which hits the jackpot with a debut at #48.

  • My personal chart is still intoxicated by Elle King and Miranda Lambert with “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)”, which remains at #1 for its fifth (and perhaps final) week. A steady stream of bulleted titles are just behind it, including Alternative chart crossovers from Coldplay at #2 and Imagine Dragons at #3. After some higher debuts on last week’s survey, Lorde and Tones And I are tied for this week’s Biggest Mover, as “Solar Power” (36-27) and “Cloudy Day” (35-26) advance nine notches on the list. The two debuts in the countdown are also by women: newcomer Holly Humberstone is new at #39 with “The Walls Are Way Too Thin”, while Olivia Rodrigo starts at #40 with “Brutal”, the fourth single to rank from her recent chart-topping album Sour.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 13, 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. Everyone is A-O-K to check out this week’s update, so here’s a look at what’s popping at the format:

LIPA LEVITATES: We have a tie! Two songs were logged at 17,513 spins by the final update, but Dua Lipa narrowly advanced from 2-1 on the chart with “Levitating”, flying ahead of Justin Bieber and his Daniel Caesar and GIVĒON-assisted “Peaches”. This is the fourth song to reach the summit for Lipa, three of which have come from her Future Nostalgia era.

TikTok star Bella Poarch has this week’s top new entry in the top 40 with “Build A Bitch”, which soars from 41-32. It’s her first song to land on the chart. With their respective fourth top 40 singles, Cheat Codes and Tinashe lean into the region with “Lean On Me”, up from 42-36. We also have the first chart song from Mooski, who recently led the Rhythmic and Urban radio charts with “Track Star”. This week, it jumps from 44-40 on the list.

Tai Verdes ranks with his first chart entry at #45 and that’s certainly “A-O-K” with him. It’s also on the move at the Alternative radio format this week, where it reaches the top 40. Calvin Harris and Tom Grennan debut at #47 with “By Your Side”, a collaboration that just hit the top 20 in the United Kingdom. Billie Eilish is also new to the survey at #48 with “Lost Cause”, a recent track from her forthcoming Happier Than Ever album.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (May 11, 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: it’s a return to the top spot for Regard, Troye Sivan and Tate McRae regarding the latest adds report. Let’s add ’em up:

Their reactive tune is currently breezing through the top 30 at the format.
