ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 24, 2020)

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 sight of a new The Weeknd track gives the format something to look at after some dismal returns last week. Let’s add ’em up:

“EYES” ON NUMBER ONE: It may not be a hot Peter Gabriel remake, but The Weeknd is about to fly up the Top 40 list with “In Your Eyes”, spotted at 60 stations in its first week. The single is featured on his most recent album After Hours, which debuted on Friday and is expected to start at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Both “Blinding Lights” and “Heartless” are still in the top ten at the format, with the former still charging towards the top spot.

Ellie Goulding‘s current release is also on the move, as the Blackbear-assisted “Worry About Me” checks in with 33 stations for the week, good for a second place finish. Blackbear ranked at #2 on last week’s Top 40 chart with “Hot Girl Bummer”.

Charting songs from Lauv, Regard and Surfaces are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap. Stay safe out there.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (March 22, 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. In these very difficult times, please stay safe and don’t jeopardize your health. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

“NOW” MORE THAN EVER: Dua Lipa‘s huge hit “Don’t Start Now” earns a fifth week at #1 on the Top 40 chart, up more than 350 spins from last week. “Don’t” now ties the run for “New Rules” at this format, which accomplished its five weeks in January and February 2018. Elsewhere, the song moves from 5-4 at Hot AC radio and from 16-13 on the AC chart.

K-pop group Monsta X scores their second top 40 single this week with “You Can’t Hold My Heart”, up 41-38. Last September, the French Montana-assisted “Who Do U Love?” spent two nonconsecutive weeks at #23. Debuting at #39, 5 Seconds Of Summer picks up their 11th top 40 hit to date with “Old Me”. It’s their third single to chart from the album Calm, due on Friday. Bryce Vine also makes a huge jump from 50-40 with “Baby Girl”, which marks his fourth top 40 entry since 2018.

BTS and Sia are “On” their way up the pop survey with this week’s #47 debut. One other collaboration is new to the region: landing at #50, it’s New Hope Club and R3HAB‘s “Let Me Down Slow”. This is the first time on the chart for the English trio.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 17, 2020)

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: Benee successfully taps into her supapowers during a weak week here at the format; more on that below. Let’s add ’em up:

BENEE THERE, DONE THAT: Unfortunately, it’s fair to say that the fear over the spread of the Coronavirus was the new entry that dominated this week’s adds report. It was inevitable: numbers were down severely and many stations reported no adds.

Of this week’s impacting songs, Benee‘s first release at the format, the Gus Dapperton-assisted “Supalonely”, managed to find a total of 30 stations on impact, making it the Most Added release today. On a normal week, it likely would’ve done much better.

Bazzi‘s latest single also pulled in 19 stations for a third place finish, as “Young & Alive” also struggled given the circumstances.

Charting songs from Demi Lovato, Lauv and Maren Morris are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap. Stay safe out there.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. BENEE featuring GUS DAPPERTON, “Supalonely” (Republic)
2. DEMI LOVATO, “I Love Me” (Island/Republic)
3. BAZZI, “Young & Alive” (APG/Atlantic)
4-T. LAUV, “Modern Loneliness” (AWAL/in2une)
4-T. SURFACES, “Sunday Best” (10K Projects/Capitol)
6-T. 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Old Me” (Interscope)
6-T. BRYCE VINE, “Baby Girl” (Sire/Warner)
6-T. MAREN MORRIS, “The Bones” (Columbia)
9-T. CHELSEA CUTLER, “Sad Tonight” (Republic)
9-T. SAINT JHN, “Roses” (Godd Complexx/HITCO)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (March 15, 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. In these very difficult times, please stay safe and don’t jeopardize your health. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

LIPA LEADS AGAIN: Dua Lipa‘s global hit “Don’t Start Now” spends a fourth week at #1 on the Top 40 chart. With the growing concerns over the Coronavirus in the U.S. and globally, it’s unclear how much radio and the labels are in contact at this time. With a number of new shutdowns and restrictions likely to come this week, there are other things weighing on our minds at the moment. It isn’t clear how radio, as a whole, will be affected or interrupted. That being said, Lipa could earn a fifth week at the top or titles from Arizona Zervas or Blackbear could push for the top spot by next Sunday. Meanwhile, there’s plenty of action in the lower rungs:

Two acts score their first top 40 song on the Top 40 chart this week: Ali Gatie with “What If I Told You That I Love You”, up 42-37, and the duo Surfaces with “Sunday Best”, blasting from 49-38. Gatie’s song also reaches the top 40 on this week’s Hot AC chart, as the Surfaces track breaks the top 50. The recent #2 single on the Hot 100 for Future and Drake also lands in the region, as “Life Is Good” moves from 46-39 on the Top 40 chart. Though both performers have done significantly better at Rhythmic and Urban radio, this marks their fifth and 28th top 40 hits at this format, respectively. Finally, despite a decrease in spins, DaBaby‘s “Bop” is up 41-40 this week, giving the rapper his second top 40 entry to date. He’s also featured on the Camila Cabello song “My Oh My”, which rises from 11-9.

The top 50 is also full of new and emerging acts on the new chart update. The debuts are led by the duo Static & Ben El, who enter the survey at #46 with the Pitbull-assisted “Further Up (Na, Na, Na, Na, Na)”. It’s already gone to #1 in their native Israel. Landing at #47, SAINt JHN‘s “Roses” flowers on the chart, which compliments its entry into the top five on the Dance radio list. A remix by Kazakh producer Imanbek has secured top ten peaks in parts of Europe. Breland‘s viral hit “My Truck” parks at #48 this week. The Sofia Carson and R3HAB collaboration “I Luv U” comes in at #49, giving Carson her first single to enter the top 50 in nearly four years and R3HAB his first ever. Lastly, Bryce Vine debuts at #50 with “Baby Girl”. We’ll see if it becomes his fourth top 40 hit here in the coming weeks.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 10, 2020)

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: Demi Lovato empowers the panel with her latest hit, while several other titles are truckin’ into the top ten. Let’s add ’em up:

“ME” TIME: The return of Demi Lovato has given us an emotional ballad in “Anyone” and the bold pop anthem “I Love Me”, this week’s top song on the adds report at Top 40 radio. It starts with 152 stations on impact, which compliments its haul of 27 stations at the Hot AC format yesterday, where it also ranked in first place. After debuting at #30 on the most recent published update, this tune is looking bound for the top ten, which would give the performer her highest-charting entry in more than two years here.

New releases by 5 Seconds Of Summer and Bryce Vine also managed to pull in some great adds this week. Both “Old Me” and “Baby Girl” tied for a second place finish with 33 stations during the session. The two singles should easily land in the top 50 in the next couple of weeks. Breland‘s recent viral song “My Truck” also drives into the top ten for the first time, placing seventh with 13 more stations coming in this week. This past Sunday, the tune officially parked in the top 50 at the Rhythmic radio format.

Charting songs from Doja Cat, Lady Gaga and Surfaces are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

The TikTok crowd has already gone wild for emerging songs from Benee and Sam Fischer, so we’ll see how they do next week at the format. Will anyone else join the impact party? Stay tuned.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. DEMI LOVATO, “I Love Me” (Island/Republic)
2-T. 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Old Me” (Interscope)
2-T. BRYCE VINE, “Baby Girl” (Sire/Warner)
4. SURFACES, “Sunday Best” (10K Projects/Capitol)
5. DOJA CAT, “Say So” (Kemosabe/RCA)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (May 21, 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: Halsey‘s controlling your pop dreams, as her latest single easily takes the crown over a single from one of Friday’s most-anticipated releases. Let’s add ’em up:

WELCOME TO MY “NIGHTMARE”: She may not be Alice Cooper yet, but Halsey is rocking atop this week’s pop radio adds report with a lofty 162 stations on impact for “Nightmare”. The hit entered at #26 on last Sunday’s list after hourly airplay at many stations on Friday and should continue to rise quickly in the coming weeks. Will it become the performer’s third #1 single of 2019? Will the dream police stop her? Someone call Cheap Trick to solve this one! For those of you chart archive enthusiasts, this is the third “nightmare” title to reach the top 40 at the format, with cuts by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince (1988) and Shontelle (2010) being the first two to pull off the feat.

Of course, DJ Khaled has another one on the Top 40 airwaves, as his SZA-assisted “Just Us” takes the runner-up spot on the log. With 48 stations on impact, the collaboration from Father Of Asahd should easily chart by this weekend’s published update. You’ll also find a number of emerging titles from acts like Christian Paul, Lizzo and SHAED among the rest of the top ten this week.

Next week, an easier choice emerges for the format: of course, that would be the latest single from 5 Seconds Of Summer. Until then, have a good long weekend!

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. HALSEY, “Nightmare” (Capitol)
2. DJ KHALED featuring SZA, “Just Us” (We The Best/Epic)
3. SHAED, “Trampoline” (Photo Finish/Caroline)
4. BILLIE EILISH, “Bad Guy” (Darkroom/Interscope)
5. KYGO & RITA ORA, “Carry On” (Palm Tree/RCA)
6. ALAN WALKER featuring SABRINA CARPENTER and FARRUKO, “On My Way” (RCA)
7-T. BRYCE VINE featuring YG, “La La Land” (Sire/Warner Bros.)
7-T. MAX featuring QUINN XCII, “Love Me Less” (Arista/RED)
9-T. CHRISTIAN PAUL, “Strong” (12Tone/SRP)
9-T. LIZZO, “Truth Hurts” (Atlantic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (May 7, 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: from “ME!” to “You”, it’s another crazy Tuesday at the Top 40 format with the latest smash from Shawn Mendes in the mix. Let’s add ’em up:

AN IFFY SITUATION: It may not be the Yvonne Elliman song, but pop radio has the fever for Shawn Mendes’s new single “If I Can’t Have You”, which can have the Most Added title on this week’s report. It starts with a perfect 184 stations, much like “ME!” accomplished for Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie last week. In doing so, “If” becomes the fourth song in the Mediabase era and fifth in the plays-per-week era to accomplish the feat. However, as noted previously, this event just happened here last week. Thus, we now have our first back-to-back set of perfect weeks ever, with both songs being worked by the same promotion department. At this point, we’re likely to see several more attempts at this challenge through the summer by other larger singles, which could be as soon as next week. (See below!)

The only other new release of note comes from the K-pop act BLACKPINK with “Kill This Love”, their first title to impact here. A decent 26 stations on impact gives the female-led quartet a third place finish. In October 2012, another K-pop girl group peaked at #44 at the format with their sole chart entry: that was the Akon-assisted “Like Money” by the Wonder Girls. We’ll see if “Kill” is poised to go higher in the coming weeks.

Repeated titles from acts like Billie Eilish, Juice WRLD, Lizzo and MAX are among the tracks that make up the rest of the top ten this week.

Next week, we’re sure that you’ll care about Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber‘s track “I Don’t Care”, which will almost certainly be in the top spot on the list. How many adds will it collect? Stay tuned.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (TWELVE)
1. SHAWN MENDES, “If I Can’t Have You” (Island/Republic)
2. BILLIE EILISH, “Bad Guy” (Darkroom/Interscope)
3. BLACKPINK, “Kill This Love” (YG Ent./Interscope)
4. MAX featuring QUINN XCII, “Love Me Less” (Arista/RED)
5-T. JUICE WRLD, “Hear Me Calling” (Grade A/Interscope)
5-T. KHALID, “Talk” (RCA)
7. DADDY YANKEE & KATY PERRY featuring SNOW, “Con Calma” (El Cartel/UMLE/Capitol)
8. MARTIN GARRIX featuring MACKLEMORE & PATRICK STUMP, “Summer Days” (RCA)
9. PANIC! AT THE DISCO, “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” (Fueled By Ramen/EMG)
10-T. BAZZI, “Paradise” (Artist Partner/Atlantic)
10-T. BRYCE VINE featuring YG, “La La Land” (Sire/Warner Bros.)
10-T. LIZZO, “Juice” (Atlantic)
