Chart Notes:

  • Is it 1999 or 2018? That is the question. This week’s two splashy debuts come from none other than the Backstreet Boys and Christina Aguilera, who haven’t appeared on my survey together since the summer of 2001. Just under 17 years ago, in July of that year, “More Than That” from the Boys and “Lady Marmalade” from Aguilera and her Moulin Rouge pals, both #1 songs on my chart, last ranked in the top 40 simultaneously. (Though that was the last time the two acts appeared on my survey with individual titles, both sang on the 2001 charity track “What’s Going On?”, credited to the All-Star Tribute, while Carter from the Backstreet Boys and Aguilera were in the top 40 during the fall of 2002 with “Help Me” and “Dirrty”, respectively. Leaping ahead to the latest chart, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” (#36) from the five-man group and “Fall In Line” (#40) from Aguilera and duet partner Demi Lovato will be going strong on my chart for some time. Paging *NSYNC and Britney Spears, come back to the pop world…

Chart Notes:

  • Congrats to Canadian singer and songwriter Shawn Mendes, who scores his second #1 on my chart with “In My Blood”. The hit, up 2-1 this week, leads Mendes’s forthcoming self-titled album, due May 25. He previously led my chart for three weeks in June and July of last year with “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back”. The debut action is also hot this week, with four entries on the countdown, led by A Great Big World‘s “Younger” at #32. The duo has two #1 songs to date, and “Younger” is now their seventh top 40 hit since 2013. Following that, Bastille‘s “Quarter Past Midnight” jumps in at #35, their eighth top 40 entry to date. In January, the group reached #8 with “World Gone Mad”, which was featured on the soundtrack to Netflix’s Bright. For singer and songwriter John Mayer, it’s a new entry for #38 with “New Light”. The single marks Mayer’s first new material to not be released by longtime label home Columbia since 2001, though it is distributed by Sony’s independent arm The Orchard (via label Snack Money.) Lastly, at #40, is the Dave Matthews Band with “Samurai Cop (Oh Joy Begin)”, the first single off their upcoming album Come Tomorrow. It’s their first studio set in nearly six years, which launched the singles “Mercy” (#19) and “If Only” (#30) into the top 40 in 2012.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (May 8, 2018)

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: impacting tracks by NF and The Weeknd face off against Drake for the title of Most Added on this Tuesday’s results. Whose name we will call out? Let’s add ’em up:

“NICE” TO BE WITH YOU: Things got competitive late into the afternoon in the race for the Most Added release on this week’s pop report, but with Drake‘s “Nice For What” continuing its scorching run up the charts, it blows past its competitors to claim the the top spot for the first time. Up from second place last week, “Nice” gets extra nice at 43 new stations, pacing ahead of NF‘s “Lie” (29) and The Weeknd‘s “Call Out My Name” (23), both solid in their own right. The latter two songs have yet to reach the top 50, but that will soon change! Both cuts originate from former #1 albums on the Billboard 200 list: the latter is taken from Perception, which ruled for a week last October, and the latter is taken from My Dear Melancholy,, an EP that ranked at #1 in April.

One other record of note this week comes from producers NOTD and singer Bea Miller titled “I Wanna Know”. Wanna know the number of adds it received? Sure you do: a dozen, tying it for seventh place. The two guys have never charted at this format before, though they have remixed a number of songs that have received airplay in the past. Miller has two minor entries to date; “Know” is likely to become her second top 40 song, which follows “Young Blood”, peaking at #38 in December 2014.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. DRAKE, “Nice For What” (YMCMB/Republic)
2. NF, “Lie” (Caroline)
3. THE WEEKND, “Call Out My Name” (XO/Republic)
4. ZAYN, “Let Me” (RCA)
5. LIAM PAYNE & J BALVIN, “Familiar” (Republic)
6. BRYCE VINE, “Drew Barrymore” (Republic)
7-T. CALVIN HARRIS & DUA LIPA, “One Kiss” (Columbia)
7-T. NOTD featuring BEA MILLER, “I Wanna Know” (Island/Republic)
9-T. CHARLIE PUTH featuring KEHLANI, “Done For Me” (APG/Atlantic)
9-T. TOM WALKER, “Leave A Light On” (Relentless/Epic)

U2 – Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way

Chart Notes:

  • New songs from Forest BlakkLeon Bridges and P!nk break into the top 40 this week – “Beyond” from Bridges leads with a debut at #38. It’s the first Hot AC single off his latest release Good Thing, though “Bad Bad News”, which was released a few weeks before “Beyond”, is now in the top five on the Triple A chart. (Look for “Beyond” to enter the lower rungs of the Hot AC chart tomorrow.) One spot lower is future CanCon smash “Love Me” by Blakk, which is already earning moderate airplay on a handful of stations on the Hot AC panel up north. The singer and songwriter was born in Canada, but currently calls Germany home. Lastly, at #40, is another chart song from that colorful hitmaker herself, the third off her Beautiful Trauma album. It’s the follow-up to the title cut, a recent #2 single on my list, which is now at #37 in its 24th week in the countdown.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (May 1, 2018)

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 Payne is real and the Bryce is right, with several impacting songs on their way up the charts (and the weekly report.) Who earns first place? Let’s add ’em up:

THIS LOOKS FAMILIAR: Taking the top position on this Tuesday’s report are two familiar faces: Liam Payne and J Balvin, speaking the hit language with their bilingual song, “Familiar”. It sports 44 stations during its impact week, and should total a nice weekly sum in the coming weeks. Last Sunday, the tune slipped into the top 50 at #50, and it’s sure to be up again this weekend. If Payne doesn’t release his first solo album this year, there will be a lot of unhappy fans, including myself! Nevertheless, this single’s likely to appear on it, whenever that is. Will Payne grab his second solo #1 at the format? We’ll have to wait and see. If you stanned for One Direction, you’re also probably enjoying the third place finish for ZAYN‘s “Let Me” this week, as it continues to build on the weekly updates. It’s new at 25 stations during the current session.

Two other impacting singles cut through the jungle of jams to land in the top ten: Bryce Vine‘s “Drew Barrymore”, which takes in 24 stations, landing a fourth place finish, and Tom Walker‘s “Leave A Light On”, which burns with 18 stations, locked in a tie for seventh place. Both artists are newcomers to the format, though Walker first made the Hot AC chart in 2017 with the mid-charting “Just You And I”. Look for both songs to approach the top 50 soon. By the way, Walker’s new single is not a hot Belinda Carlisle cover, though her “Leave A Light On” hit #11 at the format in November 1989.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. LIAM PAYNE & J BALVIN, “Familiar” (Republic)
2. DRAKE, “Nice For What” (YMCMB/Republic)
3. ZAYN, “Let Me” (RCA)
4. BRYCE VINE, “Drew Barrymore” (Republic)
5. ARIANA GRANDE, “No Tears Left To Cry” (Republic)
6. CHARLIE PUTH featuring KEHLANI, “Done For Me” (APG/Atlantic)
7-T. KHALID & NORMANI, “Love Lies” (Right Hand/Keep Cool/RCA)
7-T. TOM WALKER, “Leave A Light On” (Relentless/Epic)
9. CALVIN HARRIS & DUA LIPA, “One Kiss” (Columbia)
10-T. POST MALONE featuring TY DOLLA $IGN, “Psycho” (Republic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 24, 2018)

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: Ariana Grande stocks up on Top 40 tissues for her new track “No Tears Left To Cry”, as adds for the single flood this Tuesday’s report. Stay dry, because we’re about to add ’em up:

WHO’S CRYING NOW?: Leading her forthcoming studio album, due sometime later this year, “No Tears Left To Cry” from pop singer Ariana Grande is well ahead at the top spot on this week’s Top 40 report, landing 156 stations on impact. Grande’s largest adds week to date at the format was for “Focus”, which took in 158 stations during its first week on a run toward #13 for two weeks in November and December 2015. (Hey, we can only hope for a better result with this song.) “Tears” debuted way up at #30 on the weekend’s published update, thanks in part to hourly airplay from iHeartMedia stations throughout the day on Friday. The release also tops this week’s station leaderboards at the Hot AC and Rhythmic formats.

Will Nicky Jam and J Balvin‘s “X” be the next successful Latin crossover? With a new version in English, the collaboration takes 21 stations from the panel this week, tying for a third place finish. The two soloists have previously charted at the format in the last couple of years, but not on the same top 40 song. Tying for ninth place, with ten stations, is another terrific twosome that regularly records as a duo: Loote, new with “Your Side Of The Bed”. The New York act has yet to make the top 40 here, though they have as co-writers and producers of “No Promises” by Cheat Codes featuring Demi Lovato, which got to #6 last September.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. ARIANA GRANDE, “No Tears Left To Cry” (Republic)
2. ZAYN, “Let Me” (RCA)
3-T. DRAKE, “Nice For What” (YMCMB/Republic)
3-T. NICKY JAM & J BALVIN, “X” (Sony Latin/RCA)
5-T. CALVIN HARRIS & DUA LIPA, “One Kiss” (Columbia)
5-T. CHARLIE PUTH featuring KEHLANI, “Done For Me” (APG/Atlantic)
7. RUDIMENTAL featuring JESS GLYNNE, MACKLEMORE & DAN CAPLEN, “These Days” (Big Beat/RRP)
8. LOGIC & MARSHMELLO, “Everyday” (Def Jam)
9-T. LOOTE, “Your Side Of The Bed” (Island/Republic)
9-T. NE-YO, BEBE REXHA & STEFFLON DON, “Push Back” (Motown/Capitol)

Chart Notes:

  • Big congrats to English singer and songwriter George Ezra on his very first #1 song on my chart, “Paradise”, which rises one spot after three weeks in the runner-up position. It’s the second single from his Staying At Tamara’s album, and it’s found its own pop paradise in countries like Austria, Scotland and the United Kingdom, where it’s cracked the top five, peaking at #1 in the second territory. The lead single from the album, “Don’t Matter Now”, spent two weeks at #2 on my survey last year. Over on the U.S. radio charts, “Paradise” makes the top 50 on the Hot AC chart, while still rising through the top 15 on the Triple A list. Entering at #34 and #39 on the chart, the new single by Ariana Grande (“No Tears Left To Cry”) and a collaboration by Liam Payne and J Balvin (“Familiar”), who all happen to be labelmates, look to climb speedily during their respective runs this spring and summer. Grande’s release has a simultaneous impact at the Hot AC and Top 40 formats this week, though the Payne and Balvin single has to wait another week before it goes for adds at the latter format.
