Chart Notes:

  • Congrats to pop star Dua Lipa, as she earns her third #1 single on my personal chart with “Don’t Start Now”, jumping from 3-1. It’s her eighth career week at the top. This week’s two debuts are impacting at the Hot AC format in the coming weeks, as they cross from other formats: a top 30 single on the Triple A chart and a former #1 at Country radio. The former is the Noah Cyrus and Leon Bridges collaboration “July”, in at #39, and the latter is Old Dominion‘s “One Man Band”, bowing at #40.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (January 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: Justin Bieber has a very tasty Top 40 recipe for the pop audience, as the panel dishes some big add totals for the first official impact date of 2020. Let’s add ’em up:

JUSTIN CASE YOU FORGOT: Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Justin Bieber is flying up the pop chart as a collaborator on Dan + Shay‘s “10,000 Hours” and with his own solo track “Yummy”, the latter of which leads the week’s Top 40 adds report with 178 stations coming in on impact. (That’s nine stations short of clearing the whole panel.) It also led the reports at the Hot AC, Rhythmic and Urban formats, earning nearly 365 stations in its first week across all formats in North America. Back at Top 40 radio, the song will cruise into the top 20 by Sunday’s published chart and could be a serious top ten record soon after that.

After some early action at the format, Camila Cabello‘s current single, the DaBaby-assisted “My Oh My”, makes a move into the runner-up spot on the report with 104 stations on impact. The Weeknd‘s “Blinding Lights” also brightens the top three on the log with 67 stations in its first full week, as “Heartless” continues to surge towards the top ten.

Charting songs from Billie Eilish, Doja Cat and Ed Sheeran are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

Following early add support for several weeks, Trevor Daniel‘s “Falling” will be the Tok of the panel when it impacts on Tuesday.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. JUSTIN BIEBER, “Yummy” (Def Jam)
2. CAMILA CABELLO featuring DABABY, “My Oh My” (Syco/Epic)
3. THE WEEKND, “Blinding Lights” (XO/Republic)
4. ED SHEERAN featuring CAMILA CABELLO & CARDI B, “South Of The Border” (Atlantic)
5. LEWIS CAPALDI, “Before You Go” (Capitol)
6. TREVOR DANIEL, “Falling” (Alamo/Interscope)
7. BILLIE EILISH, “Everything I Wanted” (Darkroom/Interscope)
8. DOJA CAT, “Juicy” (Kemosabe/RCA)
9-T. JOJI & JACKSON WANG (88RISING) featuring SWAE LEE & MAJOR LAZER, “Walking” (88rising/12Tone)
9-T. ZEDD & KEHLANI, “Good Thing” (Interscope)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (December 10, 2019)

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: Harry Styles is adored by his many fans and Top 40 programmers alike, as his latest solo single has a big win on the last report of the year. Let’s add ’em up:

A STYLISH END TO THE YEAR: It’s the final impact date for the year and the decade, so some adoration for the format seems like a good way to head out with a bang. Harry Styles is back with the first radio single from his upcoming album Fine Line: “Adore You” blasts onto the list with a massive 169 adds on impact. Just in case you were wondering, “Sign Of The Times” started with 127 adds in its first week in April 2017, which was previously his largest one-week total as a solo artist. “Adore” made the top 40 by last Sunday’s published update, so expect a significant jump up the chart by this weekend.

Billie Eilish‘s “Everything I Wanted” and Ant Saunders‘s “Yellow Hearts” also impacted at the format today, though both songs have already seen some solid action here in the last month. Eilish finished in second place with 56 stations, while Saunders tied for fifth with 16.

Established hits by Arizona Zervas, Blackbear and The Weeknd are among those returning to the top ten on the report.

The usual Tuesday night adds recap will return in January once singles begin impacting again, but until then, you can still read our Sunday night recap for all the latest chart stats from the pop world. Happy holidays!

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. HARRY STYLES, “Adore You” (Columbia)
2. BILLIE EILISH, “Everything I Wanted” (Darkroom/Interscope)
3. ED SHEERAN featuring CAMILA CABELLO & CARDI B, “South Of The Border” (Atlantic)
4. ARIZONA ZERVAS, “Roxanne” (Columbia)
5-T. ANT SAUNDERS, “Yellow Hearts” (Arista)
5-T. DOJA CAT, “Juicy” (Kemosabe/RCA)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 1, 2019)

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. Turkey time might be over, but we’re still in for a filling meal of musical delights. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

“GOOD” KEEPS GOING: Lizzo stays at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the second week with “Good As Hell”, which rises more than 475 spins over last weekend. “Good” also falls a notch to #8 on this week’s Rhythmic radio chart, but lifts from 15-11 at the Hot AC format. As for more good news, Lizzo’s big hit should easily claim a third week at #1 on the pop radio list, with the next potential chart-topper still some time away from the summit.

Blasting in at #31, The Weeknd lands his 12th top 40 entry at the format with “Heartless”. The track debuted several days ago and was followed on Friday by “Blinding Lights”, which continues at #1 in the U.S. on iTunes (and holds just behind “Heartless” on both Apple Music and Spotify.) Both songs should appear on his forthcoming studio album, though a release date hasn’t been announced as of yet. Billie Eilish also climbs into the region with “Everything I Wanted”, which moves from 43-38. It’s her fourth top 40 song to date. You can also find it at #33 on this week’s Alternative radio chart.

The only top 50 entry of note, which slides in at #50, comes from record label 88rising’s compilation Head In The Clouds II. The hit is “Walking”, a collaboration that includes format newcomers Joji and Jackson Wang, as well as Swae Lee and Major Lazer.

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.

LOVE ON THE ROX: With some programmers not reporting adds ahead of the long Thanksgiving weekend, the action wasn’t as strong overall this time around.

Billie Eilish holds in second place again with “Everything I Wanted”, picking up another 33 stations. Rounding out the top three on the list, Ant Saunders secures his best week yet at the format with “Yellow Hearts”, earning 22 more stations and a third place finish.

Established hits by Blackbear, Louis Tomlinson and Tones And I are among those returning to the top ten on the report.
