ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (July 9, 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: it’s all about the “Goodbyes”. No, not to summer or this weekly post, but a track that’s been lighting up the pop airwaves since the weekend. Let’s add ’em up:

THE BIGGEST POST OF THE SUMMER: With their first collaboration to chart at the pop format, Post Malone and Young Thug are saying hello to the top spot on the weekly adds report with “Goodbyes”, opening with 132 stations on impact. The song is also atop the log at the Rhythmic radio format, earning 51 stations there. The cut made its chart debut at #35 on the official update last Sunday and should see a nice climb this week following its robust add total.

Ellie Goulding and Juice WRLD‘s “Hate Me” also scored a very solid 42 stations on impact and a second place finish. This tune also charted on Sunday, entering at #48, and should be well on its way towards the top 40 now. Yesterday, the single picked up ten stations at the Hot AC format, ranking in third place on that list.

Rounding out the top three and charging ahead with a total of 30 stations, Kaskade and Meghan Trainor‘s “With You” was also in good shape on the report.

Building titles from the Blanco Brown, the Jonas Brothers and Lewis Capaldi are among those rounding out the top ten.

Next week, Brown’s “The Git Up” should continue to dance its way into the five, though several collaborations are also in the mix.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (July 2, 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: the “Human” race is on and the “People” are on the move. Who’s speeding into the top spot on the list? Let’s add ’em up:

“HUMAN” TOUCHES THE TOP: With the Fourth of July on deck this Thursday, this week’s adds log was quite lively with new songs from several larger acts landing in the top five. Those fireworks included a first place finish for the Jonas Brothers with 61 stations on impact for “Only Human”, the third radio single from their comeback album Happiness Begins. “Beautiful People”, the new collaboration from Ed Sheeran and Khalid, also enjoys a great start with 48 stations and a second place finish. It’s the third cut to impact from Sheeran’s forthcoming set No.6 Collaborations Project, due next Friday. Another collaboration entering the top five this week comes from Marshmello and Kane Brown with a new release titled “One Thing Right”, and it’s certainly right for fourth place: a total of 34 stations add it this Tuesday.

Active titles from the late Avicii, Lewis Capaldi, Maren Morris and Zara Larsson are among those rounding out the top ten.

Next week, the latest releases for Ellie Goulding and Lil Nas X (which both picked up some early action this week) should make a splash in the top five, with several other impacting titles in the mix as well. Enjoy the holiday!

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 30, 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. A free-spirited performer is on top as we get closer to the holiday week, as more guests arrive for the pop pool party. Let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

TALK TO YOUR TRAVEL AGENT: As vacation fever swells, this week’s pop paradise is led once again by Khalid, who earns his second week at #1 on the Top 40 airwaves with “Talk”. Given the usual holiday programming at this time of year, the cut could score a third week at the top, but Khalid’s competitors are beginning to sneak up on him in the top five. We’ll see what kind of gains they’ll receive in the next few days. Meanwhile, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello‘s hit “Señorita” storms into the top 40 with a move from #41 to #20, the biggest jump by far in the countdown this week. The collaboration is Mendes’s ninth top 40 entry at the format and Cabello’s 11th as a solo artist.

This week’s top 50 action is led by Tove Lo, who starts at #44 with “Glad He’s Gone”. She was last in the top ten around this time in 2016 on the Nick Jonas solo hit “Close”, which spent four non-consecutive weeks at #10 that June and July. Meanwhile, Jonas and his two siblings, the Jonas Brothers, debut at #48 with “Only Human”, the third charting song from their recent #1 set Happiness Begins. Both “Sucker” (#2) and “Cool” (#10) are still in positive territory at the format, with the latter cut entering the region on this week’s chart. In-between those two singles, Ava Max‘s “So Am I” and the Ed Sheeran and Khalid collaboration “Beautiful People” are also new to the top 50, landing at #46 and #47, respectively. Look for “Beautiful”, along with “Only”, to appear on the weekly list of the Most Added songs at Top 40 radio on Tuesday evening.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 25, 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: lightning could strike twice for Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello at the format, as they lead a busy top ten ahead of a slower holiday week. Alright, señoritas and señores, let’s add ’em up:

GOING GOING SHAWN: Even though it’s not a hot Justin Timberlake cover, a totally different “Señorita” from Mendes and Cabello is easily this week’s Most Added release at Top 40 radio, picking up 124 stations on impact. However, Mendes’s past single “If I Can’t Have You” cleared the entire panel of 183 stations in its first week a month ago. While that track continues to gain in the top ten, Cabello is also in the top 40 with the Mark Ronson collaboration titled “Find U Again”. Look for “Señorita” to grab some top 30 action by the weekend at both this and the Hot AC radio charts, where it earned a first-week total of 25 stations yesterday.

Zara Larsson also had a solid day for her current single “All The Time”, which made a very timely entrance in third place with 33 stations during the session. A posthumous single by Avicii, featuring a lead vocal by successful collaborator Aloe Blacc, ranked a notch lower with 25 adds during the session. Both “SOS” and the aforementioned “All” should enter the top 50 very soon.

Proven winners from Lewis Capaldi, Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift, as well as additional new songs from Ava Max and Cyn, are among the rest of entries filling out the top ten this week.

Next week, watch out for some early action on Ellie Goulding and Juice WRLD‘s new collaboration, as well as some other titles that are impacting next month.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. SHAWN MENDES & CAMILA CABELLO, “Señorita” (Island/Republic)
1. TAYLOR SWIFT, “You Need To Calm Down” (Republic)
3. ZARA LARSSON, “All The Time” (TEN/Epic)
4. AVICII featuring ALOE BLACC, “SOS” (Geffen/Interscope)
5-T. AVA MAX, “So Am I” (APG/Atlantic)
5-T. MILEY CYRUS, “Mother’s Daughter” (RCA)
7. LEWIS CAPALDI, “Someone You Loved” (Capitol)
8-T. HERVE PAGEZ & DIPLO featuring CHARLI XCX, “Spicy” (Mad Decent)
8-T. MARK RONSON featuring CAMILA CABELLO, “Find U Again” (RCA)
10. CYN, “Holy Roller” (Unsub/Caroline)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 23, 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. Some say that talk is cheap, and while that’s not so far-fetched, it does change when it’s on top of the pop chart. Let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

WE NEED TO TALK: Earning his third #1 smash at the format since September of last year, Khalid leaps from 3-1 on this week’s Top 40 chart with “Talk”. Of those three hits, it’s the first by just himself to reach the summit; the other singles were with Normani and a three-way collaboration with Benny Blanco and Halsey. Accordingly, “Talk” is also the new #1 song on the Rhythmic chart, while it continues to gain in the top ten and top 20 on the Urban and Hot AC formats, respectively. Expect it to hang onto the top for a second week here on the pop survey, as Khalid’s main competition is still too far away to knock him out.

Further down the survey, the action isn’t nearly as exciting, but there are still a few notable titles to mention. Moving from 43-37, we have the 11th top 40 single at the format for Miley Cyrus with “Mother’s Daughter”. It’s the sole entry in the region this week. After debuting on Friday, the second chart collaboration by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello starts at #41. “Señorita” is likely to be this week’s Most Added record at the format on Tuesday evening and should see a nice rise through the top 40 by the weekend. Only one other song slides into the top 50 this week, a collaboration that’s already been to #1 on the Rhythmic chart: “Pure Water” checks in at #50 for Mustard and Migos. It also recently appeared in the top ten on the Urban chart. Should this song make the top 40 on the pop airwaves, it’ll be the first with the word “pure” in its title to enter the region in 20 years.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 18, 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: Taylor Swift gets “Down” with the Top 40 crowd once more, blasting up to the top spot on the Tuesday report. Take a deep breath in and out and let’s add ’em up:

“YOU”-NITED AS ONE: After the Brendon Urie-assisted “ME!” cleared the entire panel in one week back in late April, it’s no surprise to see Taylor Swift picking up another giant total for the follow-up single, “You Need To Calm Down”. This tune earns 129 stations in its first week, which falls below the 183 for “ME!”, but is still quite significant. Both songs can be found on Lover, which hits stores on August 23. “You” squeaked into the top 40 on last Sunday’s update and should be well into the top 30 by the next list to be published. It also led the adds report at Hot AC radio yesterday, scoring 42 stations in total.

Swift’s current single lands well ahead of the other impacting records in the region, including songs by LIVVIATove Lo and We Three, though all three acts managed to successfully place their songs in the top ten. (More results are below.)

Next week, Ava Max (who already appears in this week’s top ten) leads a pack of at least five impacting songs, which also includes the latest releases from Cyn, MKTO and more. Curious about who will land on top? So am I! Check back next Tuesday!

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. TAYLOR SWIFT, “You Need To Calm Down” (Republic)
2-T. LIZZO, “Truth Hurts” (Atlantic)
2-T. TOVE LO, “Glad He’s Gone” (Island/Republic)
4. LEWIS CAPALDI, “Someone You Loved” (Capitol)
5. MARK RONSON featuring CAMILA CABELLO, “Find U Again” (RCA)
6. MILEY CYRUS, “Mother’s Daughter” (RCA)
7-T. AVA MAX, “So Am I” (APG/Atlantic)
7-T. LIVVIA, “Dizzy” (12Tone Music)
7-T. THE CHAINSMOKERS featuring BEBE REXHA, “Call You Mine” (Disruptor/Columbia)
