RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (October 11, 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. Plenty of huge releases are levitating up the chart this week, so let’s see what’s popping at the format:

“LOVE” GOES ON: Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo hold at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart with “Savage Love (Laxed-Siren Beat)”, a title that they share with BTS due to a new remix of it. The collaboration easily earned a second week at the top and it should grab a third week before its run concludes. “Savage” also ranks in the top ten at the Hot AC (#6) and Rhythmic (#10) formats.

In the top 40, Dua Lipa‘s “Levitating” leaps from 45-27 on this week’s Top 40 chart, becoming her 11th top 40 hit at the format. Up from 42-34, Travis Scott, Young Thug and M.I.A. roll in with “Franchise”. The track becomes their ninth, fourth and second top 40 entries, respectively, a week after the collaboration debuted at the top of the Billboard Hot 100. Why Don’t We lifts from 48-38 on the chart with “Fallin'”, their fifth top 40 entry to date. Finally, format newcomer Tate McRae is up from 41-39 with “You Broke Me First”, a song that is already a top ten hit in countries like Australia, Ireland, Norway and the United Kingdom.

The top 50 is also pretty busy this week: the Machine Gun Kelly and Blackbear collaboration “My Ex’s Best Friend” grabs a spot in the region before its impact date on Tuesday, debuting at #43. The single also lands just below the top 40 at Alternative radio. Ali Gatie and Alessia Cara are new at #44 with “Welcome Back”, followed by newcomer Salem Ilese‘s “Mad At Disney” at #46. New at #47 this week, Bastille is back in the top 50 on the pop survey for the first time in a year and a half with “Survivin'”, which is also growing at two other formats: Alternative and Hot AC. Lastly, Olivia Rox‘s “Shooting Star” is in at #50.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (August 25, 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: Snap, crackle… BTS pops at the Top 40 format in a big way! Let’s add ’em up:

BEYOND THE ADDS: To no one’s surprise, BTS and their new single “Dynamite” are absolutely explosive at the Top 40 format, as the song blasts in with 171 adds on impact, their biggest opening to date so far. The track started at #32 on last week’s published chart and should fly up in the coming days, especially given all the new action on it. Activity has been limited for it at other formats since its release, though “Dynamite” has received some smaller airplay at both Hot AC and Rhythmic stations.

Landing in second place, up from tenth last week, 24KGoldn and Iann Dior also scored a huge win for “Mood”, in with 64 adds.

Recent TikTok hits from Claire Rosinkranz and Dixie D’Amelio also reached the top ten on the log this week: the latter’s track “Be Happy” landed in seventh place with 18 stations, while the former’s EP cut “Backyard Boy” started in eighth with 16.

Charting singles from AJRAva Max and Miley Cyrus returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap, including data on the Calvin Harris and The Weeknd collaboration that you may be bumping by the weeknd.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. BTS, “Dynamite” (BigHit/Columbia)
2. 24KGOLDN featuring IANN DIOR, “Mood” (RECORDS-Columbia)
3. DRAKE featuring LIL DURK, “Laugh Now Cry Later” (OVO/Republic)
4. ZARA LARSSON, “Wow” (TEN/Epic)
5. MILEY CYRUS, “Midnight Sky” (RCA)
6. SURF MESA featuring EMILEE, “ILY (I Love You Baby)” (Astralwerks/Capitol)

DIXIE D’AMELIO – “Be Happy” (Dam Fam/HITCO)
Album: TBA (2020)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (August 23, 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 pop chart is looking pretty explosive, so let’s see what’s sparking up at the format this week:

STILL IN STYLES: Harry Styles remains at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for a fourth week with “Watermelon Sugar”, now more than 3,300 spins ahead of Dua Lipa‘s former chart-topper “Break My Heart” in the runner-up spot. The giant hit is ready for a fifth week at the top, as it continues to climb through the top five at Hot AC radio.

Two songs jump into the top 40 this week: Miley Cyrus bolts from 41-28 with her 13th top 40 single at the format, “Midnight Sky”. Meanwhile, K-pop septet BTS launches at #32 with “Dynamite”, their sixth top 40 entry to date. The tune recently broke a YouTube record when its music video scored just over 101 million views in its first day alone. It impacts at the pop format on Tuesday and will most likely finish as the Most Added song on the report.

In the top 50, Drake debuts at #46 with the Lil Durk-assisted “Laugh Now Cry Later”, while Dan + Shay‘s “I Should Probably Go To Bed” comes in at #48. The former song is about halfway up the chart on both the Rhythmic and Urban formats, while the latter is cruising through the 20’s on both the Country and Hot AC lists.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (November 19, 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: 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.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. ARIZONA ZERVAS, “Roxanne” (Columbia)
2. BILLIE EILISH, “Everything I Wanted” (Darkroom/Interscope)
3-T. BLACKBEAR, “Hot Girl Bummer” (Beartrap/Alamo/Interscope)
3-T. MAX featuring CHROMEO, “Checklist” (The Orchard)
5. TONES AND I, “Dance Monkey” (Bad Batch-Elektra/EMG)
6. DUA LIPA, “Don’t Start Now” (Warner)
7. TRAVIS SCOTT, “Highest In The Room” (Cactus Jack/Grand Hustle/Epic)
8-T. BLACK EYED PEAS x J BALVIN, “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)” (Epic)
8-T. BTS featuring LAUV, “Make It Right” (BigHit/Columbia)
10. ZEDD & KEHLANI,
“Good Thing” (Interscope)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 10, 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. The chart veterans are having a decent time on the chart this week, but plenty of newcomers are also on the rise. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

LOVE FOUR “SOMEONE”: Lewis Capaldi‘s “Someone You Loved” narrowly beat Post Malone‘s “Circles” to pick up a fourth week at #1 on the Top 40 chart with a gap of about 140 spins. Don’t worry, Post Malone fans; he’ll definitely be topping the chart by next weekend. Meanwhile, Capaldi’s enduring smash ranks at #2 and #5 on the Hot AC and AC charts, respectively.

Dua Lipa makes a bold move with “Don’t Start Now”, leaping from 45-25 to become her ninth top 40 hit at the format. It’s only six spots away from the peak of her last charting hit, the soundtrack cut “Swan Song”, which spent two weeks at #19 in March. Kesha‘s 16th top 40 entry here jumps from 42-34 this week. “Raising Hell” also marks the first credited chart hit for Big Freedia. Climbing from 44-40 is the last of three top 40 entries on the survey: “Make It Right” by BTS and Lauv, who earn their fifth and sixth top 40 hits, respectively. This collaboration charts concurrently with Lauv’s “F**k, I’m Lonely”, a collaboration with Anne-Marie that lifts from 37-36.

Travis Scott‘s “Highest In The Room”, a former #1 song on the Hot 100, debuts at #44 this week. On the Rhythmic chart, the song bolts from 10-6. Format newcomer Isabela Merced, a young actress that’s largely known for her work with Nickelodeon, comes in at #49 with “Papi”. Lastly, AJR enters at #50 with “Dear Winter”, a song that also enters at #50 on this week’s Hot AC chart.
