RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (October 4, 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. October is looking a bit savage so far, but it shouldn’t come as a surprise, given the new #1 song at the format. Here’s what’s popping on the chart this week:

THE “BEAT” OF THE CHART: Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo are up from 2-1 on this week’s Top 40 radio chart with “Savage Love (Laxed-Siren Beat)”. It’s the first #1 at the format for Jawsh 685 and fifth (and first since 2015) for Derulo. Notably, Mediabase now credits BTS as one of the lead acts on the collaboration because of a new remix that was released two days ago; hence, the band also earns their first #1 song here. It will easily achieve a second week at the top by next weekend.

Shawn Mendes blasts onto the chart at #30 with “Wonder”, his tenth top 40 hit at the format and first of 2020. The song enters at #27 on this week’s Hot AC chart update as well. After 2-1/2 months of movement in and out of the top 50, Curtis Waters lifts from 42-36 with the Harm Franklin-assisted “Stunnin'”. It’s the first top 40 hit at this format for the two men. Meanwhile, Joel Corry and MNEK are on the rise with “Head & Heart”, a recent #1 hit on the Dance chart that climbs from 41-37. It’s the first top 40 entry for Corry here and the second for MNEK.

There are four new releases in the top 50, the highest of which is a collaboration that rockets in at #42: Travis Scott, Young Thug and M.I.A. with “Franchise”. The tune flew into the top 20 on this week’s Rhythmic chart update. Dua Lipa‘s “Levitating” enters at #45, which was recently serviced for airplay with an updated remix that includes DaBaby. Next up, Why Don’t We falls into place at #48 with “Fallin'”, while the aforementioned Jason Derulo finishes things off at #50 with his latest single “Take You Dancing”.

Sia also rises into the top 40 with the soundtrack cut “Together”, taken from her upcoming film Music. It rises from 42-40 to become her tenth solo song to reach the region here.

The Killers lead this week’s top 50 action with “Caution”, a recent #1 song on the Alternative and Triple A charts that starts at #47.
