RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 3, 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. Ready for some more quarantunes and how they’re doing on the radio? Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

“MY” NEW NUMBER ONE: In its 18th week in the top 40, Camila Cabello and DaBaby‘s “My Oh My” climbs from 2-1 on the Top 40 chart. It’s the fifth solo #1 song for Cabello outside of Fifth Harmony and the first for DaBaby. The track is also doing very well on the Hot AC radio chart, where it moves from 10-9 this week, though its current peaks are much lower at other formats.

Starting off a very busy week of new entries and debuts in the lower regions of the chart is “If The World Was Ending”, the JP Saxe and Julia Michaels collaboration that continues to connect with listeners as the Coronavirus pandemic affects the world. It moves from 42-36 on the pop chart, becoming Saxe’s first top 40 song at the format and Michaels’s seventh. You’ll also find it in the top 20 on both the AC and Hot AC charts. “Believe It” lifts from 41-37 for PartyNextDoor and Rihanna, becoming their fourth and 50th top 40 hits here, respectively. This week, the track ranks just below the top ten on the Rhythmic chart, as it climbs into the top 20 at Urban radio. After a two-month rollercoaster ride up and down the top 50, Conan Gray scores his first top 40 entry with “Maniac” with a move from 43-38. Finally, roasting at #40 is the gooey Marshmello, in a fiery collaboration with Halsey, and “Be Kind”. It marks one s’more top 40 entry for each of them: the eighth for the masked performer and the 14th for Halsey.

Singer JoJo breaks into the top 50 for the first time here since the fall of 2016 with “Man”, which enters at #47. It’s included on her latest album Good To Know, which was released on Friday. Format newcomer Sam Fischer lands at #48 with “This City”. It’s now approaching the top 20 on the Hot AC chart. A notch below him, Alec Benjamin checks in at #49 with “Oh My God”, his first tune to rank here in just over a year. It’s also #46 on this week’s Hot AC list. Finally, the eponymous first track from The Scotts, the duo of Travis Scott and Kid Cudi, slides in at #50. So far, it’s doing best on Rhythmic chart, where it debuts way up at #27.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (January 21, 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 Jonas Brothers gotta ‘nother hit, but who else in the mix? Let’s add ’em up:

“MAN” OF THE HOUR: With 164 adds on impact, “What A Man Gotta Do” by the Jonas Brothers dominated the Top 40 report, easily securing the top spot. On the Hot AC report, it picked up another 55 adds, where it also started in first place. With a nice top 30 debut on both charts by last Sunday’s published update, the song won’t waste any time flying up through the coming weeks. It’s expected to lead a forthcoming studio album by the siblings, which is due sometime later this year.

Labelmate Chelsea Cutler also managed a solid first week with “Sad Tonight”, landing in third place with 39 stations. Her album How To Be Human was released last Friday. It’s her first single to officially impact at the Top 40 format, though she did score a bit of Triple A airplay last year for the Jeremy Zucker collaboration “You Were Good To Me”, which failed to chart.

Charting songs from Alicia Keys, Halsey and The Weeknd are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

Next week, Lizzo‘s “Cuz I Love You” is likely to see a lot of love at the Top 40 format. Will Noah Cyrus‘s “July” share it?

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. JONAS BROTHERS, “What A Man Gotta Do” (Republic)
2. HALSEY, “You Should Be Sad” (Capitol)
3. CHELSEA CUTLER, “Sad Tonight” (Republic)
4-T CAMILA CABELLO featuring DABABY, “My Oh My” (Syco/Epic)
4-T. THE WEEKND, “Blinding Lights” (XO/Republic)
6. RODDY RICCH, “The Box” (Atlantic)
7-T. ALICIA KEYS, “Underdog” (RCA)
7-T. BLACK EYED PEAS x J BALVIN, “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)” (Epic)
7-T. BROCKHAMPTON, “Sugar” (Question Everything/RCA)
7-T. REGARD, “Ride It” (Epic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (January 14, 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: Alicia Keys and Halsey have the key records finishing in the top two. At the end of the day, it was a close one. Did the underdog succeed? Let’s add ’em up:

YOU SHOULD BE AT THE TOP: After a very tight battle for the top of the report this week, Keys’s “Underdog” narrowly edged out Halsey’s “You Should Be Sad” as the Most Added song at the Top 40 format. The former checked in with 119 stations, while the latter came in with 111. Keys, who will be hosting the Grammy Awards at the end of the month, recently scored her first chart entry at the format in seven years. Halsey, whose Manic album streets this Friday, recently peaked at #8 here with “Graveyard”.

International hit “Ride It” by DJ/producer Regard makes its first trip into the top ten this week, securing 11 adds and eighth place on the leaderboard. The song has been moving towards the top 50 for a few weeks now; we’ll see if this boost gets it in there.

Charting songs from Lewis Capaldi and Trevor Daniel are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

What a man gotta do to get the Most Added song at the format? The Jonas Brothers will let us in on the answer next Tuesday.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (TWELVE)
1. ALICIA KEYS, “Underdog” (RCA)
2. HALSEY, “You Should Be Sad” (Capitol)
3. CAMILA CABELLO featuring DABABY, “My Oh My” (Syco/Epic)
4. THE WEEKND, “Blinding Lights” (XO/Republic)
5. TREVOR DANIEL, “Falling” (Alamo/Interscope)
6-T. ED SHEERAN featuring CAMILA CABELLO & CARDI B, “South Of The Border” (Atlantic)
6-T. LEWIS CAPALDI, “Before You Go” (Capitol)
8. REGARD, “Ride It” (Epic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (January 7, 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: Justin Bieber has a very tasty Top 40 recipe for the pop audience, as the panel dishes some big add totals for the first official impact date of 2020. Let’s add ’em up:

JUSTIN CASE YOU FORGOT: Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Justin Bieber is flying up the pop chart as a collaborator on Dan + Shay‘s “10,000 Hours” and with his own solo track “Yummy”, the latter of which leads the week’s Top 40 adds report with 178 stations coming in on impact. (That’s nine stations short of clearing the whole panel.) It also led the reports at the Hot AC, Rhythmic and Urban formats, earning nearly 365 stations in its first week across all formats in North America. Back at Top 40 radio, the song will cruise into the top 20 by Sunday’s published chart and could be a serious top ten record soon after that.

After some early action at the format, Camila Cabello‘s current single, the DaBaby-assisted “My Oh My”, makes a move into the runner-up spot on the report with 104 stations on impact. The Weeknd‘s “Blinding Lights” also brightens the top three on the log with 67 stations in its first full week, as “Heartless” continues to surge towards the top ten.

Charting songs from Billie Eilish, Doja Cat and Ed Sheeran are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

Following early add support for several weeks, Trevor Daniel‘s “Falling” will be the Tok of the panel when it impacts on Tuesday.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. JUSTIN BIEBER, “Yummy” (Def Jam)
2. CAMILA CABELLO featuring DABABY, “My Oh My” (Syco/Epic)
3. THE WEEKND, “Blinding Lights” (XO/Republic)
4. ED SHEERAN featuring CAMILA CABELLO & CARDI B, “South Of The Border” (Atlantic)
5. LEWIS CAPALDI, “Before You Go” (Capitol)
6. TREVOR DANIEL, “Falling” (Alamo/Interscope)
7. BILLIE EILISH, “Everything I Wanted” (Darkroom/Interscope)
8. DOJA CAT, “Juicy” (Kemosabe/RCA)
9-T. JOJI & JACKSON WANG (88RISING) featuring SWAE LEE & MAJOR LAZER, “Walking” (88rising/12Tone)
9-T. ZEDD & KEHLANI, “Good Thing” (Interscope)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (January 5, 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. New year, same number one! However, this week’s chart is also full of some decent action and several new songs. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

CIRCLING ANOTHER YEAR: Post Malone‘s “Circles” holds at #1 on the Top 40 list for the fourth nonconsecutive week, as it’s now in the books as the last #1 single at the Top 40 format for the 2010’s and the first of the 2020’s. The multi-format hit remains at #8 on the Hot AC radio chart, while it pauses at #15 on the Rhythmic list.

Starting way up at #22, Justin Bieber scores his 27th top 40 hit at the format with “Yummy”, the highly-anticipated lead single off his forthcoming studio album. Bieber also lands at #10 as a part of the Dan + Shay collaboration “10,000 Hours”. Moving from 41-32, Camila Cabello earns her 15th solo top 40 hit with the DaBaby-assisted “My Oh My”, the latter of whom picks up his first. It’s likely that these two songs will complete a 1-2 finish on Tuesday’s adds report at the format, with Bieber leading Cabello/DaBaby.

Two other collaborations of note reach the top 50 this week, led by Iggy Azalea and Alice Chater‘s “Lola” at #47. The track marks the first top 50 entry for Azalea in about two years and the first ever chart appearance for Chater. At #50, “On Chill” chills at the end of the list for Wale and Jeremih. The former #1 at the Rhythmic and Urban formats is the first top 50 single on the pop chart in 6-1/2 years for the former, while the latter scores his first in nearly four.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 29, 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. We made it: 2019’s last official chart. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

THE CIRCLE ISN’T SMALL: As the end of the decade edges closer, Post Malone‘s “Circles” leads the Top 40 chart for the third nonconsecutive week. In terms of spins, it’s safely ahead of established hits by Lizzo (#2) and Selena Gomez (#3), so it might end up with one additional week at the top (unless Gomez’s song recovers enough to push through by next weekend. Stay tuned.)

The Weeknd‘s “Blinding Lights” shines from 44-38, marking his 13th top 40 song at the format. His prior single, “Heartless”, rises a notch from 16-15. Newcomer Doja Cat scratches into the top 40 as well, jumping from 41-39 with “Juicy”. It currently ranks at #7 and #12 on the Rhythmic and Urban radio charts, respectively. The hit is available in both an album version and a remix with Tyga.

Camila Cabello bolts into the top 50 at #41 with the DaBaby-assisted “My Oh My”, the newest single off her album Romance. It’s scheduled to impact at the format next Tuesday, while it heads for Hot AC adds a day earlier. Coming off larger seasonal airplay, the Jonas Brothers will spend a single week on the chart with “Like It’s Christmas”, which checks in at #48. It recently topped the AC radio list, though it drops from 1-8 on the new update. (Appropriately, the trio replaces themselves at the summit with “Sucker”.)

Happy New Year from PGTC! See you for more radio fun in 2020.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 15, 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. From Christmas, FL to North Pole, NY, this year’s holiday season is coming fast and so are some massive musical gifts. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

ON THE “GOOD” LIST: Santa’s certainly been quite nice to Lizzo this year, as “Good As Hell” remains at #1 on the Top 40 chart for the fourth week. The multi-format smash is down more than 600 spins this week, but is still a fair distance ahead of a number of songs. Can her second chart-topper at the format remain at the top through the holiday freeze? Stay tuned.

Soaring from 43-29, “South Of The Border” becomes the 20th top 40 hit on the pop radio chart for Ed Sheeran, as well as the 14th solo top 40 hit for Camila Cabello and the ninth for Cardi B (if Mediabase officially credits the latter two performers.) The single marks the third to reach the top 40 from Sheeran’s No.6 Collaborations Project album. Leaping from 47-40, “Checklist” checks into the top 40 for MAX and Chromeo. It’s the fourth top 40 song for the former and the second for the duo, who last charted in 2014.

There’s also some decent top 50 debut action this week, with the first chart appearances by Doja Cat and Brockhampton leading the way. “Juicy” and “Sugar”, which pair nicely in both an edible and musical manner, are new at #47 and #49, respectively. “Juicy” rises a notch to #8 on this week’s Rhythmic radio chart and is headed towards the top ten on the Urban list. Meanwhile, a third new tune bows in the region this week: The Weeknd‘s “Blinding Lights”, lighting up at #50. Released a couple of weeks ago, during the same period as “Heartless”, the song continues to see sales and streaming action without an official radio push. “Heartless” makes a huge move from 23-16 on the chart, as it races up the top 40 at several radio formats.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 24, 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. “Good” times are ahead on the pop survey… are you ready for the latest top bops in the radio universe? Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

“GOOD” STUFF: It’s been a big breakout year for Lizzo and it just keeps getting better. This week, she earns her second #1 single on the Top 40 survey with “Good As Hell”, up 2-1. The multi-format hit also jumps from 8-7 and 18-15 on the Rhythmic and Hot AC radio lists, respectively. With a slow holiday week on the horizon, it should easily earn a second week at the top.

From TikTok to top 40 success, newcomer Arizona Zervas soars onto the survey all the way up at #33 with “Roxanne”, which also jumps right into the top 30 on the Rhythmic list. Another single that’s also been developing on the video app is “Make You Mine” by the new trio PUBLIC, which makes its entry with a move from 41-38. Zedd and Kehlani‘s “Good Thing” jumps from 50-39 on the chart, giving the two performers their 15th and fourth top 40 entries, respectively. Finally, up from 46-40, Louis Tomlinson takes “We Made It” into the region, earning him his third solo top 40 hit outside of One Direction.

Billie Eilish, who already appears in the top 20 with “All The Good Girls Go To Hell”, is in at #43 with “Everything I Wanted”. The tune was released as a one-off single last week and does not appear on her current studio album. “Checklist” checks in at #47 for the first collaboration by MAX and Chromeo, as Ed Sheeran, Camila Cabello and Cardi B are headed “South Of The Border” and into the #48 position. The latter collaboration impacts at the format in early December. It also enters the Hot AC chart at #49.

Have an amazing Thanksgiving from PGTC!
