ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (August 31, 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: the gods of the format place Halsey‘s new song on the Top 40 throne. Let’s add ’em up:

“I AM” AT THE TOP: From the new set If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power, Halsey led the adds report at Top 40 radio with “I Am Not A Woman, I’m A God”. It picked up 137 stations in its first week. Halsey also topped the adds report at the Alternative radio format, but with a different song: “You Asked For This”, also featured on the same album. “I Am” debuted at #36 on the pop chart last weekend.

Climbing into second place, “Need To Know” secured another 41 adds, as Doja Cat just earned her eighth top 40 hit at the format. Walker Hayes also impacted this week with his recent viral hit from TikTok, as “Fancy Like” tied for third place with another 28 stations. The track is just outside the top 20 at the Country radio format.

Charting singles from Billie Eilish, SEB and Twenty One Pilots 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 (August 22, 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. From cold hearts to hot new tracks, here’s all that’s popping at the format this week:

“4” SCORES: For the fifth consecutive week, Olivia Rodrigo holds strong at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart with “Good 4 U”, taken from the recent chart-topping album Sour. Meanwhile, “Déjà Vu” remains in the runner-up position for the third week, still over 600 spins behind her leader at the top. Across the radio world, “Good” is expected to top the Hot AC chart in the next few weeks.

In the top 40, four new tunes check into the region: “Summer Of Love” is the highest, starting at #31 for Shawn Mendes and Tainy. This is the 12th top 40 single for Mendes and the second for Tainy, who last charted two years ago as a collaborator on Benny Blanco‘s “I Can’t Get Enough”, which peaked at #29. Jumping from 41-32, the Black Eyed Peas, Saweetie and Lele Pons hit the top 40 with “Hit It”. The song becomes their 22nd, fourth and first entries in the region, respectively. Next in line, Billie Eilish has her ninth top 40 entry with the title cut from her album Happier Than Ever, debuting at #36. Finally, at #40, we have a rather momentous debut: “Cold Heart”, a collaboration from Elton John and Dua Lipa. In the 48 years that an airplay chart has been compiled, combining the archives of both Mediabase and Radio & Records, “Cold” marks John’s 47th top 40 song at the format and first since January 1998. Meanwhile, Lipa has her 16th top 40 hit.

New at #42, WizKid and Tems enter the chart with their current top five hit at Urban radio: “Essence”. A new remix with Justin Bieber is also securing airplay at many pop stations. The only other new single in the top 50 is “Drive You Home”, which speeds onto the survey at #50 for Jackson Wang and the collective/record label Internet Money.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (August 15, 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 your favorite records and rumors, here’s all that’s popping at the format this week:

“U”, “VU” AND TWO: Pop star Olivia Rodrigo holds at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the fourth week with “Good 4 U”, while her past single “Déjà Vu” remains at #2 for the second week. The former title still leads the latter by over 800 spins.

With four recurrents being removed from the chart, there’s quite a bit of debut action in the top 40 and top 50. The highest of the four singles entering the top 40 comes from Lizzo and Cardi B. “Rumors” lands at #29, marking their fifth and 11th top 40 hits, respectively. Moving up from 43-38, Masked Wolf scores his second top 40 hit with “Say So”. Next, Conan Gray jumps from 42-39 with the song that becomes his fourth top 40 entry, “People Watching”. Lastly, the viral TikTok hit “Seaside” leaps from 45-40 for newcomer SEB, which is also on the move in the top 40 at the Alternative radio format.

Starting at #41, the Black Eyed Peas, Saweetie and Lele Pons hit the jackpot with their collaboration called “Hit It”. Madison Beer has a new entry at #45 with “Reckless”, which is followed by “Vacation” at #48, which teams two groups together for the first time: Dirty Heads and Train. The original version of the track (without Train) got to #10 on the Alternative radio chart in November 2017, but it’s been moving again recently thanks to a run on TikTok. One notch lower, Doja Cat meows in at #49 with “Need To Know”, marking the third song to chart from the Planet Her album. Finishing things off, Walker Hayes crosses from the country radio airwaves to pop playlists with a new entry at #50: “Fancy Like”.
