RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (March 14, 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. As we wait and see who will be taking home some GRAMMY statues tonight, here’s a look at what’s popping at the format this week:

LICENSE RENEWAL: For the third week in a row, Olivia Rodrigo remains at the top spot on the pop radio chart with “Driver’s License”. While still in positive territory, the big hit was up a mere 45 spins vs. last week. That being said, it’s more than 2,600 spins ahead of the song at #2, so it’ll still be hanging around at the top for a fourth week next Sunday.

The new duo of Silk Sonic scores this week’s top entry in the top 40 with “Leave The Door Open”, making a giant move from 43-25 on the list. Their first charting title also marks the 22nd and first entries in the region individually for Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, respectively. Climbing from 41-38, G-Eazy and Chris Brown provide the top 40 with a new hit called, well, “Provide”. This is the 11th time in the top 40 for G-Eazy and the 36th for Brown. Jessia is also rising on the pop list with “I’m Not Pretty”. The track takes a nice jump from 44-39 this week, marking her first trip into the region.

In the top 50, Bebe Rexha leads a set of four debuts at #44 with “Sacrifice”, followed by Justin Bieber and “Hold On” at #45. His forthcoming album Justice is due on Friday. The recent viral hit “Calling My Phone” starts at #47 for Lil Tjay and 6LACK, which is flying through the top 20 on the Rhythmic radio chart and approaching the region on the Urban survey. Lastly, “Watchu Tryna Do?” puts chart newcomer GiGi Vega in the #50 spot this week.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (March 7, 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. The door is open and all the chart activity is here, so let’s take a look at what’s popping at the format this week:

KEEP ON DRIVING: It’s a second week at #1 on the Top 40 chart for Olivia Rodrigo and her huge hit “Driver’s License”, which pulls ahead of the song at #2 by more than 1,800 spins. The tune looks poised to approach or eclipse 20,000 spins next week.

As expected, this week’s top new entry comes from Maroon 5 and Megan Thee Stallion at #30 with “Beautiful Mistakes”. It also enters in the top 30 (#24, to be exact) on this week’s Hot AC chart. It’s their 29th and fourth top 40 entries, respectively. Scoring his third top 40 song to date, Conan Gray rises from 43-37 with “Overdrive”, which matches the peak of “Maniac” from last year. AJR is also on the move with “Way Less Sad”, which jumps from 46-38. It’s the trio’s sixth trip into the top 40 here.

Down in the top 50, the duo Silk Sonic enters at #43 with “Leave The Door Open”. The act is a new project featuring Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, who are credited as solo artists as well. Fresh off his performance at the Pokémon Day Virtual Concert, Post Malone lands at #50 with his cover of Hootie & The Blowfish‘s “Only Wanna Be With You”. The original song spent three weeks at #1 in the fall of 1995.
