Chart Notes:

  • Former One Direction member ZAYN scores this week’s highest debut at #38 with his fifth solo hit, “Let Me”. The single is due on the performer’s forthcoming studio album, which is expected sometime later this year. He has two #1 songs thus far as a soloist: “Pillowtalk”, which topped my chart for three weeks in 2016, and “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever”, with Taylor Swift, which held at the top for two weeks in 2017. A spot below ZAYN, coming in at #39, is the boy band In Real Life with “Tattoo (How ‘Bout You)”. It’s the quintet’s first appearance on my chart, though they bubbled under with a song called “Eyes Closed” last August. Finally, at #40, is a duet from labelmates Andreas Moss and Melanie Pfirrman, “Lonely”. It’s the second top 40 song for Moss, who reached #21 in November with “Stuck In My Feelings”, and the first for Pfirrman.

Chart Notes:

  • Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa are responsible for this week’s Highest Debut with “One Kiss”, smooching its way into the #34 spot. Lipa’s “IDGAF” holds onto the #9 position for the third consecutive week, while also showing solid growth at the Hot AC and Top 40 radio formats. With his first top 40 single on my chart since “Superbad”, which went to #13 during the summer of 2014, Jesse McCartney comes in at #38 with “Better With You”. Look out for more new music from the performer later this year. Lastly, at #40, Matt Simons returns with his first hit in three years, “We Can Do Better”. In early 2015, his song “Catch And Release” peaked at #23, though it reached the top five on the Triple A radio chart a little over a year later.

Chart Notes:

  • Congrats to One Direction‘s Niall Horan, who now goes 4-for-4 with chart-topping titles from his solo album Flicker. “On The Loose” rises 2-1 this week, making Horan’s set the first to accumulate four consecutive #1 songs on my top 40 since 25 by Adele. The other three, chronologically, are 2016’s “This Town” and 2017’s “Slow Hands” and “Too Much To Ask”. This chart achievement also makes Flicker the first release to land #1 songs in three different calendar years since 25, with the last of the four, “Water Under The Bridge”, spending its last week at the top on the chart dated the first day of January in 2017. (Her run began in November 2015 with lead single “Hello”.) There are three debuts this week, led by the fourth top 40 song for James TW, “Say Love”, at #36. His biggest entry here to date, “When You Love Someone”, spent seven weeks at the top in the fall of 2016. The Driver Era, two of the Lynch siblings from R5, are new at #39 with “Preacher Man”, marking their first chart hit. Lastly, at #40, is a collaboration from Hall & Oates and Train called “Philly Forget Me Not”, a preview of their forthcoming summer tour together. It’s the legendary duo’s first time on my chart since 2005, when their cover of “Ooh Child” went to #37 that June. Train’s last top 40 single here, “Drink Up”, spent three weeks at #9 last June.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (March 25, 2018)

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. Remember to file your taxes in the next few weeks, while simultaneously breaking out the MP3 files to enjoy the sweet sounds of pop music from this week’s Top 40 survey. (Do kids these days even know what an MP3 is?) Let’s count the hits:

NEW JACK SWINGS: Congrats to Bruno Mars and Cardi B, who leap from 3-1 on this week’s Top 40 chart with “Finesse”, the eighth #1 at the format for Mars and the first for Cardi B. Mars collects his second #1 track from the 24K Magic era, as “That’s What I Like” spent a total of three weeks at the top last April and May. (The original version of “Finesse” appears on the album, though its current remix does not.) The global hit continues in the top ten at three other radio formats, reaching #1 at one (Rhythmic) during a two-week run last month. Next Sunday, look for “The Middle”, a three-way collaboration from Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey, to potentially top the survey, as it advances 5-2 this week with a very healthy bullet.

HOT BLOODED: Launching all the way up at #28, Shawn Mendes scores his sixth top 40 entry and highest debut to date at the Top 40 format with “In My Blood”. His previous high of #31 was set by “Treat You Better” back in June 2016. It’s the first release off Mendes’s third studio album, due sometime later in the year. One extra cut from the album, “Lost In Japan”, was released on Friday to both sales and streaming success, though its airplay was minimal. (I’ll save the Japanese artists and song titles for another week!) Another top debut on this week’s top 40, coming in at #35, is the seventh top 40 song for Halsey, called “Alone”. Combined airplay for an edit of the original album version and a new remix with Big Sean and Stefflon Don spiked as a result of the single’s second place finish on last Tuesday’s adds report, where it pulled in nearly 60 stations on impact.

Among the new entries in the top 50, watch out for “Everybody Hates Me” by The Chainsmokers, logging on at #43, which might become the duo’s eighth top 40 song at the format next week. “Sober Up”, the former Alternative chart-topper by AJR and Weezer lead singer Rivers Cuomo, is also aiming for the top 40 next week, ranking at #48 on the current update. The trio has a pair of top 40 entries to date, while Cuomo’s only solo appearance was in 2010 on B.o.B‘s “Magic”, spending three weeks at #13 in September.

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut belongs to 19-year-old Shawn Mendes, new at #33 with “In My Blood”. It’s his sixth entry on my chart, the biggest of which was a three-week #1 from last summer, “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back”. His third album is due later this year, which also features “Lost In Japan”, a groovy tune that debuted alongside “Blood” late last week. A second new entry is in at #40: charting with their first entry in just under six years, Snow Patrol returns with “Don’t Give In”, giving the group their seventh top 40 hit since 2006. Their biggest of the seven came that year, a four-week #1 called “Chasing Cars”. On May 25, the band is releasing their upcoming studio album, Wildness. It’s great to have them back!

Chart Notes:

  • After reaching #9 last year with “Miles”, Phillip Phillips returns with the follow-up, “Into The Wild”, new at #39. Both titles can be found on Phillips’s most recent release, Collateral. (It’s not a hot Connell Cruise cover, but that single peaked at #27 on my chart three years ago.) A spot below him, at #40, is a soundtrack single by Jack Antonoff’s Bleachers. Taken from the film Love, Simon, which opened on Friday, “Alfie’s Song (Not So Typical Love Song)” heads for adds at the Alternative format Tuesday. Bleachers has been to #1 twice on my chart, while fun. (which Antonoff also played in) scored three chart-toppers in 2012 and 2013.
