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!

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: Arizona Zervas takes his musical map and leaps to the top of the report, but there’s plenty of other action in the top ten. Let’s add ’em up:

ARIZONA ROX THE TOP: After three years of releasing songs, format newcomer Arizona Zervas recently leapt up the sales and streaming charts with his breakout hit “Roxanne”, which now becomes this week’s Most Added single at the Top 40 format. A week ahead of its official impact date, the smash cruises in with 71 stations, while scoring another 40 stations at the Rhythmic format. At this point, it’s pretty clear that the song will make a strong top 40 entry by the weekend, though we’ll have to see how high it goes.

Billie Eilish settles into the runner-up position with 34 stations for “Everything I Wanted”. She also earns a second place finish at the Alternative format with another 15 stations there. It appears that this tune will be able to chart concurrently with “All The Good Girls Go To Hell”, which recently entered the top 20 on the pop radio survey.

Established hits by Blackbear, Dua Lipa and Travis Scott are among those returning to the top ten on the report this week.

Beyond Zervas’s release, no other songs are currently listed as impacting next week, though that will likely change soon.

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: Zedd and Kehlani earned the strongest results of any impacting tune on the report, but does their good thing endure at the top? Let’s add ’em up:

ONE “GOOD” EVENING: After a tight race for most of the day, Zedd and Kehlani’s “Good Thing” edged ahead at the end with a nice first week total of 41 stations, just a handful of adds ahead of some established hits: Tones And I‘s “Dance Monkey” (40) and Dua Lipa‘s “Don’t Start Now” (38). “Good” is already racing towards the top 50 and will probably get there in the next few days. A spot lower than Lipa is another impacting record, “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)” by the Black Eyed Peas and J Balvin. It secures that fourth place finish with 35 stations on impact. The collaboration earned an additional 16 adds at the Rhythmic format, picking up the same rank of fourth place.

Elsewhere, MAX and Chromeo tied for fifth place on the log with two dozen stations adding “Checklist” this week. Recent singles from acts like Kesha and Louis Tomlinson are among the titles extending their run in the top ten.

There’s a “Sugar” rush coming next week on behalf of BROCKHAMPTON, who impact at the format for the first time.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (November 5, 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: Dua Lipa paces well ahead of the competition to secure the top spot with a song that’s really starting to climb in airplay. Who else is in the mix? Let’s add ’em up:

“START” THE CELEBRATION: After entering the top 50 on last Sunday’s published update, Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start Now” will not be stopping anytime soon. Complimenting its top ten ranks on iTunes and Spotify in the U.S., the building hit begins at Top 40 radio with a very good 124 stations on impact, which easily makes it the Most Added release of the week. Though the single has not received an adds date at any other format so far, look for it to earn some airplay at the Hot AC and Rhythmic formats soon. “Don’t” should be well into the top 40 on the pop chart by the weekend.

Elsewhere, Travis Scott earns his best week yet with “Highest In The Room”, a top ten single on the Rhythmic radio survey that’s on the move at some Top 40 outlets. It earned 42 new stations during the session, which puts it in the runner-up position. Landing in sixth place at the format, Louis Tomlinson‘s “We Made It” officially impacts this week, adding another 16 stations to its total.

Recent charting releases by Blackbear, Kesha and Tones And I are among those prominent titles making up the rest of the top ten.

Next week, look out for potentially solid results for recent collaborations from MAX and Chromeo and Zedd and Kehlani.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 3, 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. Confused about what holiday is actually the next to arrive? Yeah, AC radio might be too. Meanwhile, here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

“SOMEONE” IS STICKING AROUND: Now in its third week atop the pop radio chart, Lewis Capaldi‘s “Someone You Loved” remains strong at the format, while it also returns to #1 on the Hot AC chart for the first time in five weeks. It also stays at #6 on the AC chart. Look for Post Malone‘s “Circles” (up 4-2) to replace Capaldi’s song on the Top 40 survey by next week, as it continues to grow quickly.

There’s little movement elsewhere this week: one new song reaches the top 40, “Hot Girl Bummer” by Blackbear, which rises from 44-40 to become his second top 40 single at the format. Two years ago, “Do Re Mi” got to #24 at the end of November. Dua Lipa is in at #45 with “Don’t Start Now”, which leads two additional top 50 entries. The other, Charlie Puth‘s “Mother”, starts at #49. The former song impacts at Top 40 radio on Tuesday and should easily top the week’s adds report, while the latter title has been steadily moving up during the last few weeks. Puth’s latest entry also appears in the top 50 on the Hot AC chart.
