The album is expected to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart, while the tune should continue to rise through the end of the summer.

In second place on both the Top 40 and Rhythmic reports, Normani and Cardi B earned 53 and 46 adds, respectively, with “Wild Side”. A new track from Alessia Cara also cracked the top five on the pop radio log, as “Sweet Dream” placed fourth with 36 stations on impact.

Charting singles from Billie Eilish, Maroon 5 and Post Malone returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

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.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 13, 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. This weekend, menorahs are burning bright across the nation and so is the pop radio chart, which lights up with new tunes. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

WHO’S BEHIND THE DIOR: 24KGoldn and Iann Dior hold at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the eighth week with “Mood”. The collaboration is now the longest-running #1 song of the year at the pop format. With two more chart weeks during 2020 for it to expand on that total, we’ll see if it goes any further soon.

Thanks to several songs headed to recurrent status, there’s quite a bit of action in the lower regions of the chart this week. Leading a pack of four new titles in the top 40, All Time Low and Blackbear leap from 46-33 with “Monsters”. It’s the first top 40 single for the band and the seventh for Blackbear, who was certainly on a hot streak in 2020. The tune holds at #1 on the Alternative chart this week, marking its 13th nonconsecutive week at the summit. Landing at #38 is “Body”, the third top 40 hit on the pop list for Megan Thee Stallion. It’s now in the top 20 on both the Rhythmic and Urban charts. Bad Bunny hops along and collects his third top 40 hit with “Dàkiti”, rising from 45-39. It’s the first top 40 single for his collaborator Jhay Cortez. Finally, jumping from 50-40 on the chart, Sigala and James Arthur score their first and second top 40 hits, respectively, with “Lasting Lover”. It remains at #1 on the Dance list for a third week in a row.

After two days of airplay, Taylor Swift‘s “Willow” bows at #41. It’s the first charting song from her new album Evermore. From the Alternative chart, two recent top five songs inquisitively reach the Top 40 list this week: Wallows with “Are You Bored Yet?” at #47 and Dayglow with “Can I Call You Tonight?” at #49. Finally, at #50, newcomer HVME sneaks into the region with “Goosebumps”, a flip of a Travis Scott song from 2016 that did not previously chart here, but hit #1 at the Rhythmic format in the spring of 2017.

A new remix with Demi Lovato was released last week. This is the band’s largest impact week to date and will easily earn them their highest-charting tune at the format by the end of the month.

In second place, Megan Thee Stallion‘s “Body” earned another 30 commitments this week, as it also approaches the top 40 here on the pop chart. It was the week’s Most Added single at the Urban format, collecting a huge total of 65 stations, while also landing another 25 adds on the Rhythmic report, where it secured the runner-up position.

Charting singles from Jason Derulo, Pop Smoke and The Weeknd returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

That’s it for now! Regular weekend radio updates will continue through the freeze. See you in 2021 for more adds action.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 6, 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. With the holiday freeze approaching, slower weeks are ahead, but not before some decent December action on the charts. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

SEVEN GOLDN WEEKS: 24KGoldn and Iann Dior stay at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the seventh consecutive week with “Mood”, tying for the longest run of the year so far along with top titles from Harry Styles and The Weeknd. “Mood” is still more than 1,600 spins ahead of the song in the runner-up position.

Two newcomers reach the top 40 with their first chart singles: The Kid LAROI soars from 44-39 with “So Done”, while Ashnikko is up from 42-40 with “Daisy”. The former is currently based in Australia, while the latter is in England (but she was born and raised in North Carolina.)

Thanks to a newly-released remix that features Demi Lovato, who is not currently credited on Mediabase, the current #1 hit on the Alternative chart by All Time Low and Blackbear enters at #46. “Monsters” is the third song by the band to reach the top 50 here since their debut in 2011. Following the collaborative trend, David Guetta and Sia are also new at #48 with “Let’s Love”, as Sigala and James Arthur come in at #50 with “Lasting Lover”.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 1, 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. The mood is right once again for the newest songs and stats from the top of the pop airwaves. Let’s see what’s popping at the format this week:

GOLDN YEARS: 24KGoldn and Iann Dior score a second week at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart with “Mood”. The big hit is well ahead of its nearest competitor by over 2,900 spins and should manage a third frame at the summit quite easily. Meanwhile, it stays in the runner-up position on this week’s Rhythmic chart update, with little movement elsewhere.

Moving into the top 40 this week, G-Eazy and Blackbear lift from 42-36 with “Hate The Way”, becoming their tenth and sixth top 40 entries at the format, respectively. The label/collective Internet Money leaps from 43-38 with “Lemonade”, their collaboration with Gunna, Don Toliver and Nav. This track marks the first top 40 hit for all four performers here, but they’ve all seen prior top 40 action at the Rhythmic and Urban formats. Finally, the late Pop Smoke scores his first top 40 entry here with “What You Know ‘Bout Love”, a song that you know is up from 41-39.

After reaching the top 20 this week with the title cut from her new album Positions, which was released on Friday, Ariana Grande debuts at #45 with her second single from the set: “34+35”. Format newcomer Ritt Momney has his first entry at #49 with a cover of “Put Your Records On”. The track was originally a top ten hit at the AC, Hot AC and Triple A formats for Corinne Bailey Rae in 2006 and 2007. (It didn’t reach the Top 40 list at the time.) Finally, Marshmello and Imanbek are new at #50 this week with the Usher-assisted “Too Much”. Usher hopes to score his first top 40 hit at the format since the summer of 2015.
