RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 12, 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 Christmas and chart magic, let’s see what’s popping at the format this week:

AS EASY AS PIE: It’s the second week at #1 on the Top 40 chart for Adele with “Easy On Me”, the lead single from her new album 30. The international hit holds for a fourth week at #1 on the Hot AC radio chart.

Newcomer GAYLE blasts into the top 40 with her recent viral TikTok hit, as “Abcdefu” rises from 42-25. The tune continues a strong run on both the streaming and composite charts internationally, appearing in the top ten throughout Australasia and Europe. GAYLE is not the only new artist in the top 40 this week, as American Idol alum Benson Boone leaps from 45-37 with “Ghost Town”. His first charting song is yet another success story for the video app, where Boone teased it before its official release. LISA secures her first solo hit outside of the popular group BLACKPINK with “Money”, up from 41-38 this week. Finally, Charli XCX jumps from 43-40 with “Good Ones”, her seventh top 40 hit to date at the format.

19 years after his first single was serviced to Top 40 radio stations, comedian and host Jimmy Fallon appears in the top 50 for his first time with the Ariana Grande and Megan Thee Stallion-assisted “It Was A… (Masked Christmas)”, which checks in at #46. A second seasonal song is in at #47: “Merry Christmas”, a recent #1 single in the United Kingdom, which teams Ed Sheeran and Elton John. Now ranking in the top 20 at the Dance radio format, “The Motto” lands at #48 on the Top 40 survey for Tiësto and Ava Max. Finally, at #50, Wale and J. Cole are in with “Poke It Out”, a current top ten hit at the Rhythmic and Urban radio formats.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (November 2, 2021)

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: NEIKED, Mae Muller and Polo G spend several more days on top of the report. Let’s add ’em up:

EVEN “BETTER” NOW: For the second consecutive week, “Better Days” takes the Most Added title at the Top 40 radio format, as the big collaboration from NEIKED, Mae Muller and Polo G picks up 54 more adds. It debuted at #28 on last weekend’s published chart and will fly into the top 20 soon. The song is seeing little activity outside of the format, with just a handful of Rhythmic adds coming in since last week.

Most of the activity trailed off from there, but emerging singles from Charli XCX, Chlöe and Oliver Tree also had solid performances.

Charting singles from CKay, Pitbull and The Anxiety returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next week for another action-packed adds session.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (ELEVEN)
1. NEIKED, MAE MULLER & POLO G, “Better Days” (Capitol)
2. SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA & THE WEEKND, “Moth To A Flame” (Republic)
3-T. OLIVER TREE, “Life Goes On” (Atlantic)

6. CHLÖE, “Have Mercy” (Parkwood/Columbia)
7. CHARLI XCX, “Good Ones” (Atlantic/EMG)
8-T. ANITTA featuring SAWEETIE, “Faking Love” (Warner)
8-T. CKAY, “Love Nwantiti (Ah Ah Ah)” (Chocolate City/Atlantic)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (October 24, 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 the top songs and performers, both old and Yung, let’s see what’s popping at the format this week:

KID PLUS 8: “Stay” earns an eighth week at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart, as The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber continue their run with the longest-running #1 song of 2021 at the Top 40 format. It also remains atop the Hot AC radio chart, now in its third week there.

We’ve seen a pair of top 40 hits from Elton John (1981) and Emblem3 (2013) about a girl named “Chloe” and now the performer who bills herself simply as Chlöe enters the top 40 for the first time. “Have Mercy” moves from 41-39 this week, as the tune continues to approach the top ten on the Rhythmic and Urban radio charts. Meanwhile, Trevor Daniel jumps from 42-40 with his third top 40 song thus far, “Alone”. It interpolates “Better Off Alone”, the only chart hit at the format for Alice Deejay, which spent four weeks at #19 in the spring and summer of 2000.

In the top 50, Anitta and Sweetie lead four new entries in the region with “Faking Love”, which starts at #47. One spot lower, Charli XCX is in with “Good Ones” at #48. Her new release also appears in the top 50 on the Hot AC chart this week at #47, but with a significantly lower spin total. Imagine Dragons re-enter at #49 with “Follow You”, a former #1 hit on the Alternative radio chart from earlier this year. On the Top 40 chart, the track peaked at #47 in the late spring and hasn’t ranked in the top 50 since June. Lastly, at #50, Yung Bleu starts with the Chris Brown and 2 Chainz-assisted “Baddest”, a current top five hit on the Rhythmic and Urban charts.

Three releases debut in the top 40: “Like My Father” is the highest at #34, as Jax earns her second top 40 single of 2021. Charli XCX is one notch lower with “Good Ones”, off to a fairly good start at #35. Finally, the late Whitney Houston debuts at #40 with a new remix of 1986’s “How Will I Know”, reimagined by Clean Bandit. The original song spent two weeks at #1 on the CHR radio chart.

ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2019: #70-61

As 2019 and the decade draw to a close, it’s time for the annual Top 100 of the year! According to my tabulations, these titles ranked as the most successful on my personal chart. The year was full of love, found and lost, from “Higher Love” and “Lover” to “Somebody You Loved” and more. Time was the essence, whether it was “All The Time” or “The Last Time”, and the light guided the way towards the upper half of the list, including “Light On” and “Lights Up”.

So, come along with “ME!” as I count down the hits, won’t you? Let’s get some numbers rolling…

The 2019 chart year encompasses a period of 52 weekly surveys from the chart dated December 2, 2018 to the chart dated November 24, 2018. Peaks listed reflect the highest position reached by the final list of this period. For any ties in points, a song with the higher peak is listed first, and further ties are broken by the weeks at a song’s peak position and the amount of time charted in the top 40. 167 titles had at least one point qualify towards the year-end chart, a decrease from the 171 that did so in 2018.

70. NIALL HORAN, “Nice To Meet Ya”
Album: (single only)
Label: Neon Haze/Capitol
Peak: #1 for six+ weeks (2019/2020)

69. CHARLI XCX & TROYE SIVAN, “1999”
