RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 21, 2017)

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. After a fun fifth-year reunion this weekend, I’m back from my alma mater and ready to teach my favorite students of pop about the current affairs of current songs. So, get your pencils ready, because here comes this week’s lesson:

HOUSE OF CHAIN: Jump up, jump up and get down to business… there is a new #1 on the pop radio chart this week, “Something Just Like This” by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay, up 2-1. It becomes the third #1 for the EDM duo at this format, but the first for the rock band that’s been charting since 2001. If you think that’s insane, it is. The single is taken from the duo’s former #1 album, Memories…Do Not Open, while it also appears on the quartet’s forthcoming EP, Kaleidoscope, due June 30. “Something” grabs the top spot in its 12th week in the top 40, which is faster than the run for “Don’t Let Me Down” (featuring Daya) (15 weeks), but slower than the one for “Closer” (featuring Halsey) (8 weeks).

The Chainsmokers is the first duo to amass three #1 singles on the CHR radio chart since Australia’s Savage Garden, who placed “I Want You” (1997), “Truly Madly Deeply” (1998) and “I Knew I Loved You” (2000) at the top of the list. Of course, duos such as Hall & OatesRoxette and Wham! also have three to their credit from their Radio & Records era. Needless to say, it’s going to be very hard to stop Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart now, so expect them to continue jumping around the charts in 2017.

THAT’S MY “BAD”: In a week full of so many pop priorities launching at radio, Selena Gomez serves the truth with a “Liar”. At #31 this week, the strong entrance for “Bad Liar” is, in large part, due to hourly airplay on iHeartMedia stations upon its release last Thursday. This is the 15th top 40 single at the format for the young performer, who previously charted with the band The Scene. I don’t think the members of the group have been scene since 2012, unless they’re taking your order at the local fast food joint. “Liar” is expected on her next studio album, due sometime later this year. The song was co-written with Julia Michaels, who holds at #7 with “Issues” in its 17th week in the top 40.

Gomez’s latest song is one of six new entries to hit the top 40 this week, with a number of quick top ten hits and mid-charters exiting the region. Just below her track, Kendrick Lamar‘s “Humble.” (#35), Hey Violet‘s “Break My Heart” (#37), Dua Lipa‘s “Be The One” (#38), Hailee Steinfeld‘s “Most Girls” (#39) and Post Malone featuring Quavo‘s “Congratulations” (#40) all take a seat in the endless game of musical chairs that we call the pop chart. With the Memorial Day holiday approaching, this section of the survey should be less active (at least, in terms of debuts) next week, due to alternative programming from a number of CHR stations.

IT’S ALL ABOUT “LOCATION”: Location, location, location! That’s what chart newcomer Khalid is thinking and singing about these days, especially coming off a week at a prime spot on the Urban survey. “Location” is, well, located at #49 on the CHR chart. It can be found on the album American Teen, which debuted in the top ten on the Billboard 200 earlier this year. The 19-year-old may find himself with another top 50 song next week, as Logic‘s “1-800-273-8255” (which features he and Alessia Cara) saw some nice gains during the week, putting it just below the chart. However, that collaboration will be competing with potential entries from acts like Camila Cabello, Katy Perry and Liam Payne, so come back next week to see the results of that.

My trusty GPS (the Gaining Pop Songs system, of course) recalculates this Sunday to find four new hits making the top 50, with Jon Bellion‘s “Overwhelming” (#46), Paramore‘s “Hard Times” (#48) and Childish Gambino‘s “Redbone” (#50) joining Khalid for their first appearances on the published chart. How will they do this summer? We’ll find out together real soon.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 14, 2017)

Welcome to Radio Active, a weekly 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 very Happy Mother’s Day from PGTC to everybody celebrating out there, including my own Mom, my first blog fan and the best supporter out there! Now, it is time to let this baby into the world, give it some love and let it grow up to be a fantastic young pop chart report. (Someone pass the tissues!) Here is why CHR stands for can’t help reminiscing…

THE “LIKE” SPIKE: For the third week in a row, pop and R&B star Bruno Mars orbits around the #1 spot with his international smash “That’s What I Like”. The video for it will likely be closing in on 400 million views in the coming week, as it recently surpassed the 300 million stream mark on Spotify. (That’s a whole lot of millions, and they aren’t in my wallet. Can we change that?) The party is nearly over for Mars, as he’ll pass the baton next week to “Something Just Like This” by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay. The song holds at #2 for the second week. By the way, the last time the top two tracks in the nation both had the word “like” in their titles was in October 2011, when “Moves Like Jagger” (#1) by Maroon 5 featuring Christina Aguilera and “Someone Like You” (#2) by Adele were ruling the radio. See, kids, liking is cool in any era.

Beyond those top two records, there isn’t much to “like” about the titles in this week’s chart. One of last week’s top 40 entries, “Body Like A Back Road” by Country crossover star Sam Hunt, is up 40-39 with a smaller gain in spins. At the present time, no additional titles with a likable sentiment are impacting at the format. However, the season is still young, and that’s certainly something to like.

NIALL AND ERROR: Three members of One Direction gone solo are bouncing around the Top 40 chart this week, but just one has a debut record, and it happens to be this week’s highest new entry. Niall Horan‘s “Slow Hands” jumps from outside the top 50, making a lofty entrance at #35. This is the Irish singer and songwriter’s second solo hit on the pop survey, with “This Town” reaching a #12 peak earlier this year. With 60% of the boy band in the top 40, we’re very close to achieving a week in which all of their original members find themselves somewhere in the top 40 with solo hits. This kind of occurrence has only happened once on the CHR list. I think you’re aware of which influential band pulled it off the last time. (Hint: it was an early Christmas/Hanukkah gift in 1974.) Look out for the debut of member Liam Payne‘s “Strip That Down”, featuring Quavo, on Friday. It’s sure to be a hot tune, so load up on those flame emojis.

Now, the only issue with this equation is that ZAYN‘s “Still Got Time”, which features PARTYNEXTDOOR, takes a nasty fall of 11 notches this week from its peak of #20. Needless to say, that single will likely be beneath the top 40 next week, and he would need to have a follow-up on the horizon in the next few weeks. Also, with Louis Tomlinson not announcing any singles as of late, though I presume he’s been working on material, he too would need to build up some buzz before properly launching some music here. It will take some teamwork, between the clients, their labels and the gatekeepers/programmers at the format, but I think it can be done. (It would be amazing if it happens!)

SWING OUT, SISTERS: Two breakouts on this week’s pop chart are by two sisters who found a way and said what they wanted to say, at least as far their current hits. The higher of the pair lands at #37: “Malibu” by Miley Cyrus, her ninth top 40 hit. No, it is not a hot Hole remake, but that “Malibu” hit #35 (2/12/99 R&R) and served as the rock group’s only successful crossover single. Well, I don’t think Cyrus was jamming to Courtney Love and company at age six, but who knows? In any case, that debut is bolstered by first day hourly airplay for the afternoon of its release. However, with a chart-topping bow on iTunes, and plenty of streaming during the last few days, this California confection is sure to strum up the charts and stick around for the summer.

Younger sister Noah Cyrus crawls into the countdown at #49 with “Stay Together”. You might recall that this entry was featured in the Add Lib report from about three weeks ago, and it continues to gain at the format, thanks in part to an upcoming appearance at a summer event sponsored by radio giant iHeartMedia. (In fact, both sisters will be there.) Previous single “Make Me (Cry)”, featuring Labrinth, reached #19 earlier this year. Two sisters debuting with separate solo chart entries in the same week is definitely a rarity. We’ll see if the panel can make room for both of them in the top tier of the chart very soon.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (March 5, 2017)

CHR/Top 40 Chart - March 5, 2017

Welcome to Radio Active, a new weekly report on POP! Goes The Charts that gets to the chart of the matter: highlights from the CHR/Top 40 chart, as published by Mediabase 24/7 and Mediabase Research. The kids say it’s lit. I say, “Yeah, but “My Own Worst Enemy” only reached #29 at the format in 1999.” Anyways, enough with the dad jokes; let’s see who’s fathering new top 40 hits and achievements this week:

THE GREAT DIVIDE: If you haven’t heard Ed Sheeran’s latest album, ÷ (Divide), it might be time to Ed-ucate yourself. You’ll be sure to see it at the top on the albums listing next week. Meanwhile, Sheeran schools the competition as far as this week’s CHR/Top 40 chart goes, holding at #1 for the third straight week with “Shape Of You” (Atlantic). It’s already eclipsed the one frame that “Thinking Out Loud” spent at the top, which occurred this week in 2015. This week’s #2 song, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever (Fifty Shades Darker)” (RCA-Republic) by ZAYN & Taylor Swift, is still about 2,100 spins away from “Shape”, which is quite the gap. A fourth week at #1 should easily be achievable, unless the state of spins drastically changes in the next few days.

Ten songs from ÷ are currently in the top 100 on iTunes in the U.S., and fifteen are in the top 50 on Spotify. Needless to say, that’s a whole lot of Ed. Is it too early to start the Grammy buzz? The two-time winner is due for a few more awards, which sounds like a real possibility.

BIG GETS BIGGER: When it comes to taking L’s, I’m pretty sure I heard The Motels singing about it first. Rapper Big Sean was a few years away from being born when that song became a minor hit on the U.S. charts, but he’s had plenty of success (and, likely, plenty of motel stays) in the last few years. His latest CHR hit, “Bounce Back” (GOOD/Def Jam), advances 28-24 this week. It’s his highest-charting main-credited single at the format, besting the #27 peaks of 2012’s “Dance (A$$)”, featuring Nicki Minaj, and 2015’s “I Don’t F**k With You”, featuring E-40.

Wondering about the biggest Seans, Shauns and Shawns in pop chart history? Artists (in chronological order) like Shaun CassidyShawn Mullins, Sean Carter (Jay-Z), Sean Combs (P. Diddy), Sean PaulJay Sean and Shawn Mendes have all spent time at the top. Moral of the story: Big Sean isn’t the biggest Sean, but he’s not the smallest Sean, so perhaps he’s actually Average Sean? I’ll report back with more details as they come. (For the record, it took 28 L’s to complete this part of the report.)

HOW GREAT THOU CHART: Joy to the world, the Lorde is coming back to smash the charts with her latest single, “Green Light” (Lava/Republic). It zooms into the countdown at #25, while also instantly impacting at the Alternative (#29) and Hot AC (#31) formats. In a rush hour full of records, that’s pretty good. This is the New Zealand performer’s fourth top 40 hit on the CHR/Top 40 chart. Check back on Tuesday for the radio adds recap to see if Lava’s current high-water mark for impact weeks is “bent” out of shape. Either way, it has the potential to be the Most Added song at the format.

“Green Light” has unexpectedly become a popular top 40 title in the last decade: John Legend and Andre 3000 took their entry (GOOD/Columbia) to #20 in March 2009, while a Pitbull song (credited as “Greenlight”, Mr. 305/Polo Grounds/RCA) from last year, featuring Flo Rida and LunchMoney Lewis, peaked at #23 in November.

“SOMETHING” TO TALK ABOUT: Forgive me, Queen Bonnie Raitt, your song is far more iconic than what I’m about to speak of. (ahem) There have been a number of collaborations hitting CHR playlists recently, and one of the most unexpected comes from EDM duo and selfie aficionados The Chainsmokers and rockers Coldplay. Their musical moment together, “Something Just Like This” (Disruptor/Columbia), leaps from 42-26, while the duo’s “Paris” lifts 7-6. Those would be the fifth and sixth hits for the two American guys. This is also the British group’s twelfth top 40 hit at the format since 2001’s “Yellow”. Their biggest single to date, “Viva La Vida”, peaked at #11 in September 2008.

Though I haven’t yet decided on The Coldsmokers or Chainplay as their portmanteau, I am open to opinions and other name suggestions. Is broldplay a genre yet? Oh, I should stop? Alright, moving on…

FROM MY ZEDD TO MY CHART: Hey, someone has to remember that Evan & Jaron had top 40 singles beyond “Crazy For This Girl”. The two brothers had a short stay on the pop chart between 2000 and 2002. However, as far as the new single called “Stay” (Def Jam-Interscope), Zedd and Alessia Cara go “The Distance” (see what I did there?) and soar from 46-27 this week. Expect the song to reach the top 20 soon. This is the first collaboration from the Russian-German DJ/producer and the Canadian singer, and something tells me that it won’t be their last.

This is the ninth top 40 hit in Radio & Records/Mediabase history called “Stay”, which includes titles by Jackson Browne (#19, Aug. 1978), Shakespear’s Sister (#5, Sep. 1992), Eternal (#6, Feb. 1994), Lisa Loeb & Nine Stories (#1, Aug. 1994) and Rihanna featuring Mikky Ekko (#1, Apr. 2013).

NEW IN THE MIX: After “Shout Out To My Ex” was pulled prematurely from the pop airwaves, to the shock and horror of Mixers around the Twitterverse, pop quartet Little Mix is back on the CHR airwaves with “Touch” (SYCO/Columbia). It, well, touches down at #49 this week. The group continues to struggle at U.S. radio, even as they score their fifth top 50 entry since 2013. (By comparison, they’ve had 15 singles reach the top 20 in the U.K. since their debut in 2011, plus additional charting album cuts and collaborations.) Let’s hope that their latest excursion in pop paradise yields larger than Little results.

Feeling our way through some touchy tunes, we’ve had six top 40 songs using the word (or a variant of it) in their titles since 2000, including two #7 hits: “Everytime We Touch” (Robbins Ent.) by Cascada (Apr. 2006) and “Touch My Body” (Island/IDJMG) by Mariah Carey (Apr. 2008). Of course, we’ve also heard a touch of The Bloodhound Gang (#22, Mar./Apr. 2000), Fall Out Boy (#32, June 2006), The Veronicas (#12, Feb. 2009) and Trey Songz featuring Nicki Minaj (#37, Nov. 2014).

FLASHBACK: Commanders-In-Chart, 2009-2017

On my ballot of bops.

On my ballot of bops.

Saying farewell to a President is hard after eight years in office. In fact, a number of us are saying “don’t leave.” Still, there are people out there who desire a change, someone who more accurately fits their views. Though I don’t get too political on here, I got to vote in my first election in 2008, and I was happy to vote for President Obama both then and in 2012. Needless to say, I appreciated his time and effort in office, and thank him for the work he did. (Let’s be respectful on here, kids, we can all have differing opinions.)

As January 20 brings new leadership and a new sense of uncertainty to many people in the U.S., I thought it would be nice to address something that is certain, at least when it comes my top 40. During the past eight years, a lot of memorable songs reached the #1 spot on my chart, but just a dozen claimed runs of seven weeks or higher at the summit. It takes strong leadership, whether you’re running the country or a personal chart, to build momentum and keep on top, and that’s what these excellent tracks did. Sure, at least a few of these songs didn’t get the national attention that I hoped they would, but as far as my musical universe goes, they’re all classics. What songs will hold this long at #1 during the next president’s time in Washington? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

For now, enjoy all these musical treasures from January 2009 to January 2017: the presidents of pop, the leaders of longevity and all the other members of the chart cabinet.
