It replaces “NDA” at radio, which just peaked at #25 without a bullet last week. Finishing in third place, WizKid landed at 32 new stations on impact with the Justin Bieber and Tems-assisted “Essence”.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (August 15, 2021)

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. For your favorite records and rumors, here’s all that’s popping at the format this week:

“U”, “VU” AND TWO: Pop star Olivia Rodrigo holds at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the fourth week with “Good 4 U”, while her past single “Déjà Vu” remains at #2 for the second week. The former title still leads the latter by over 800 spins.

With four recurrents being removed from the chart, there’s quite a bit of debut action in the top 40 and top 50. The highest of the four singles entering the top 40 comes from Lizzo and Cardi B. “Rumors” lands at #29, marking their fifth and 11th top 40 hits, respectively. Moving up from 43-38, Masked Wolf scores his second top 40 hit with “Say So”. Next, Conan Gray jumps from 42-39 with the song that becomes his fourth top 40 entry, “People Watching”. Lastly, the viral TikTok hit “Seaside” leaps from 45-40 for newcomer SEB, which is also on the move in the top 40 at the Alternative radio format.

Starting at #41, the Black Eyed Peas, Saweetie and Lele Pons hit the jackpot with their collaboration called “Hit It”. Madison Beer has a new entry at #45 with “Reckless”, which is followed by “Vacation” at #48, which teams two groups together for the first time: Dirty Heads and Train. The original version of the track (without Train) got to #10 on the Alternative radio chart in November 2017, but it’s been moving again recently thanks to a run on TikTok. One notch lower, Doja Cat meows in at #49 with “Need To Know”, marking the third song to chart from the Planet Her album. Finishing things off, Walker Hayes crosses from the country radio airwaves to pop playlists with a new entry at #50: “Fancy Like”.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 25, 2021)

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. Here’s what’s sweet, sour and popping on the chart this week:

“GOOD” EVENING: With her second #1 song of the year so far, Olivia Rodrigo climbs from 2-1 on the Top 40 chart with “Good 4 U”. It’s also up to #9 on this week’s Hot AC chart. Rodrigo has now achieved four top 40 songs from the Sour album at the pop format since January, the newest of which is just down the page…

Camila Cabello leads four new tunes in the top 40 with “Don’t Go Yet”, which bows way up at #30 after only two days of airplay. This is her 15th top 40 entry outside of Fifth Harmony and the first from her upcoming album Familia. The second posthumous top 40 single for Pop Smoke is “Demeanor”, which debuts at #37. Taken from the album Faith, the track features Dua Lipa, who scores her 15th top 40 hit at the format. Speaking of Fifth Harmony, Normani struts onto the survey at #39 with the Cardi B-assisted “Wild Side”. The new collaboration is the fourth solo top 40 hit for the former and the tenth for the latter. Finally, the aforementioned Rodrigo blasts from 46-40 with “Traitor”.

Eurovision winners Måneskin add some Italian flavor to the Top 40 radio chart with “Beggin’”, their remake of a 1967 tune from The Four Seasons, which checks in at #44. The current top ten song on the Alternative chart for Twenty One Pilots, “Saturday”, is next at #45. New at #46, Alessia Cara is back in the mix with one of two cuts she just released simultaneously, “Sweet Dream”. Lastly, with the current chart-topper on the Billboard Hot 100, BTS are in at #48 with “Permission To Dance”. It can be found as the b-side to their current hit “Butter”.
