ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 17, 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: Benee successfully taps into her supapowers during a weak week here at the format; more on that below. Let’s add ’em up:

BENEE THERE, DONE THAT: Unfortunately, it’s fair to say that the fear over the spread of the Coronavirus was the new entry that dominated this week’s adds report. It was inevitable: numbers were down severely and many stations reported no adds.

Of this week’s impacting songs, Benee‘s first release at the format, the Gus Dapperton-assisted “Supalonely”, managed to find a total of 30 stations on impact, making it the Most Added release today. On a normal week, it likely would’ve done much better.

Bazzi‘s latest single also pulled in 19 stations for a third place finish, as “Young & Alive” also struggled given the circumstances.

Charting songs from Demi Lovato, Lauv and Maren Morris are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap. Stay safe out there.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. BENEE featuring GUS DAPPERTON, “Supalonely” (Republic)
2. DEMI LOVATO, “I Love Me” (Island/Republic)
3. BAZZI, “Young & Alive” (APG/Atlantic)
4-T. LAUV, “Modern Loneliness” (AWAL/in2une)
4-T. SURFACES, “Sunday Best” (10K Projects/Capitol)
6-T. 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Old Me” (Interscope)
6-T. BRYCE VINE, “Baby Girl” (Sire/Warner)

9-T. CHELSEA CUTLER, “Sad Tonight” (Republic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (February 4, 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: Khalid and Selena Gomez know their worth at Top 40 radio, but which performed ended up in that rare and coveted top position on the report? Let’s add ’em up:

“KNOW” YOUR ADDS: After sneaking in a midday premiere and wide support from the panel, “Know Your Worth” by Khalid x Disclosure is this week’s Most Added song at the Top 40 format, ending the day with a total of 60 stations. The track only earned a handful of adds at the Rhythmic format on the latest list, though it did not impact there today. Expect “Know” to easily chart this weekend on the regular published update.

Of course, this means Selena Gomez‘s “Rare” ended the day in second place, but only by one add: 59 more stations came in for it this week. The title cut from her latest album is already flying up the Top 40 chart, making its top 40 debut this past weekend.

The latest single from Meghan Trainor, the Nicki Minaj-assisted “Nice To Meet Ya”, also managed to place in the top five titles this week. It earned 40 stations on impact, earning it a fourth place rank. The collaboration is featured on her album Treat Myself, which was released last Friday. It also placed in fourth on the Hot AC report yesterday, picking up 14 stations there.

Charting songs from Doja Cat, Taylor Swift and The Weeknd are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

Next week, emerging songs from Ali Gatie, DaBaby and Madison Beer all aim to be da Most Added song of the week. Who will take the crown? Find out next Tuesday, baby.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (February 2, 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. Just ahead of the Grammy Awards, we have some new winners on the airwaves. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

MAROONED AGAIN: With the song that’s now spent ten big weeks at #1 on the Hot AC chart, Maroon 5 scores their 11th #1 hit at the Top 40 format with “Memories”, climbing from 3-1. The multi-format hit rises about 790 spins week-to-week. For lead singer Adam Levine, the tune marks his 13th #1 on the chart, having reached the top as a featured artist on singles by Gym Class Heroes and R. City.

Four new releases enter the top 40 at the format this week, all by solo women, including one newcomer. Lizzo‘s “Cuz I Love You” is up from 49-30, earning the recent Grammy-winning performer her fourth top 40 hit at the format. Just behind her is Taylor Swift with “The Man”, which makes a high debut at #31. It’s also her 31st top 40 single here and the fourth from her current album Lover. Selena Gomez takes her 18th trip into the top 40 as a soloist with “Rare”, leaping from 44-37. It officially impacts at the format on Tuesday. Finally, first-timer Chelsea Cutler moves from 43-39 with “Sad Tonight”. The single is taken from her debut album How To Be Human, which was released a couple of weeks ago.

After a single swap from “Juicy”, which drops to #36 this week, Doja Cat meows back into the top 50 at #41 with “Say So”. It seems likely that it’ll reach the top 40 next weekend. The only other entry of note in the region comes from Hot Chelle Rae, who are back in the top 50 for the first time since the spring of 2014 with “I Hate LA”. It lands at #50.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (January 28, 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: just cuz we love Lizzo and Taylor Swift, the Top 40 panel has rewarded their latest singles with first and second place finishes on this week’s report. Who landed where? Let’s add ’em up:

CUZ THEY’RE MOST ADDED: After a very fierce battle for much of the day, Grammy nominee Swift’s “The Man” is just ahead of winner Lizzo’s “Cuz I Love You” on the Top 40 adds report, earning 87 and 80 stations on impact, respectively. Swift’s track was in second place on yesterday’s report at Hot AC radio. Lizzo’s track tied for first place on the new report at Rhythmic radio. They’re both likely to fly into the top 40 by the weekend, “Cuz” from its #49 entry last Sunday and “Man” from just outside the top 50.

Two more impacting releases made the top five today: Doja Cat‘s “Say So”, earning 33 stations and a third place finish, and Noah Cyrus‘s “July”, earning 28 stations and a fifth place finish. The former title is the follow-up to “Juicy”, which reached the top 40 in late December and registered a new peak of #33 last Sunday. The latter song, which is available in its original form and an updated version with Leon Bridges, has appeared in the top ten on the adds report at Hot AC radio for the past two weeks. The two tracks should find their way into the top 50 at the format by the weekend, likely due to the recent lowered spin threshold to chart.

Charting songs from Roddy Ricch and the Jonas Brothers are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

Next week, Selena Gomez‘s “Rare” (tied for third place) should have another huge week at the format for its official impact date.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. TAYLOR SWIFT, “The Man” (Republic)
2. LIZZO, “Cuz I Love You” (Atlantic)
3-T. DOJA CAT, “Say So” (Kemosabe/RCA)
3-T. SELENA GOMEZ, “Rare” (Interscope)
5. NOAH CYRUS, “July” (RECORDS/Columbia)
6. RODDY RICCH, “The Box” (Atlantic)
7. CHELSEA CUTLER, “Sad Tonight” (Republic)
8-T. HALSEY, “You Should Be Sad” (Capitol)
8-T. JONAS BROTHERS, “What A Man Gotta Do” (Republic)
10. LEWIS CAPALDI, “Before You Go” (Capitol)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (January 26, 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. Just ahead of the Grammy Awards, we have some new winners on the airwaves. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

ANOTHER FINE POST: With a difference of only nine spins between #1 and #2 this week, Post Malone‘s enduring hit “Circles” returns to the top of the Top 40 chart for a sixth nonconsecutive week. The smash also holds at #4 on the Hot AC chart. Will it score a seventh week at #1 in time for the Super Bowl? Better yet, will it ever leave the chart? We may never know. Actually, we will, but it will have to wait until next Sunday.

Four new songs enter the top 40 at the format this week, three by performers who are new to the chart. The group Brockhampton is one, up from 41-35 with “Sugar”. Roddy Ricch leaps from 49-38 with a cut that’s also flying through the top 20 on the Rhythmic and Urban charts, “The Box”. It continues to hold at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 list. Regard‘s “Ride It” also lifts from 47-39 on the pop radio chart, while Fifth Harmony member Ally Brooke earns her third solo top 40 entry with “No Good”, rising from 45-40.

Additionally, there are four new entries in the top 50 this week, along with a single re-entry that’s been outside the region for almost five months. Newcomer Chelsea Cutler starts things off at #43 with “Sad Tonight”, which impacted at the format last Tuesday. It’s also a good week for Selena Gomez, who enters at #44 with the title track from her recent album Rare. After last appearing at #45 on the chart dated September 1, Maren Morris is on the rebound with “The Bones”, stepping back in at #47. The track is currently in the top ten on the Country and Hot AC radio lists. Grammy nominee Lizzo‘s “Cuz I Love You” debuts at #49, while the Mustard and Roddy Ricch collaboration “Ballin'” sneaks in at #50 to close out this week’s activities. The latter hit went to #1 on the Rhythmic and Urban charts earlier this month.

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)
