ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (July 7, 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: Trevor Daniel and Selena Gomez are the life of the pop party, as their hit duet is still hot at the format. Let’s add ’em up:

BLAST FROM THE “PAST”: The top two titles on the usual adds report remain in the same order as last week, with Daniel and Gomez’s “Past Life” ranking in first place with another 68 adds, while Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo‘s “Savage Love” scores with an impact week of 50 more stations, good for the runner-up position. The two songs jumped into the top 40 on this past weekend’s published chart with ease and should continue to fly through the end of the summer.

The biggest new entry to the top five is Ava Max‘s “Kings & Queens”, which scores 28 stations on impact for a third place finish. A difference of one add separated it from the Topic and A7S collaboration called “Breaking Me”, which landed in fourth.

Charting singles from Cyn, Jack Harlow and Sia returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap!

That sum was just three adds of the song finishing in second place, “Rockstar”, the current #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 from DaBaby featuring Roddy Ricch.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 14, 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. Writing about music and radio charts at the moment is a bit strange, but for petition and donation resources in the fight against racial inequality in our country, please go to this website and do what you can. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

BACK INTO THE LIGHT: Returning to the summit on the Top 40 radio chart for a fourth nonconsecutive week, The Weeknd‘s “Blinding Lights” is enduring on the pop airwaves, while simultaneously topping the list at the Hot AC format. The tune is now in its 25th week in the top 40. The most recent single from his After Hours album, “In Your Eyes”, stalled out a few weeks back at #19.

There’s some crazy top 40 action on the chart this week, including six new entries in the region. Gabby Barrett‘s “I Hope” makes a huge leap from 42-32 to become her first top 40 single at the format. It previously topped the Country radio chart in April. From the soundtrack to upcoming film Promising Young Woman, Cyn earns her first top 40 hit with “Drinks”, up from 41-35. After narrowly missing the top 40 with two releases in 2016, JoJo has her first top 40 song in eight years with “Man”, climbing from 43-37. It’s her sixth title to enter the region since 2004. The Surf Mesa and Emilee collaboration “ILY (I Love You Baby)” leaps from 45-38, with the two performers each earning their first top 40 entries. Sam Fischer jumps from 44-39 with “This City”, as he lands his first top 40 entry here as well. It now ranks in the top 20 on the Hot AC chart. Last but not least, Ashe climbs from 46-40 on the survey with “Moral Of The Story”, which is currently in the top 15 on the Alternative chart.

The top 50 is just as active on the chart with another six entries in that region, led by Tones And I‘s “Ur So F**king Cool” at #43. It follows the global hit “Dance Monkey”, which spent six nonconsecutive weeks at #6 on the Top 40 survey this year. Newcomer Pink Sweat$ isn’t sweating his entry at #45 with “17”, followed by the TikTok-fueled “Banana” by Conkarah and Shaggy, which begins to ripen at #47. Olivia O’Brien‘s “Josslyn” starts at #48, as she makes her first appearance on the chart since the end of 2016. That year also happens to be the same one when Melanie Martinez last charted at the format; her “Play Date” arrives at #49. Sia‘s new single “Together” ends this Sunday’s wild chart adventure; the cut from her upcoming film Music sneaks in at #50.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 24, 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. Sure, it’s a holiday weekend, but the Top 40 chart is definitely not taking a holiday when it comes to fast action. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

CURIOSITY THRILLED THE CAT: For the third consecutive week, Doja Cat‘s “Say So” remains at #1 on the Top 40 chart. It’s likely to spend a fourth week at the summit, especially given the lack of competition currently in the top five. However, that’s not all for radio’s top feline this week, but you’ll have to wait and see what song of hers is meowing at the bottom of the list as you read on:

This is the most active week for top 40 entries in quite some time, led mostly by larger names and a couple of emerging ones. “X” by the Jonas Brothers is the highest of five tunes to make the jump, up from 45-26 to become the trio’s 12th top 40 hit at the format. Harry Styles picks up his fifth solo entry in the region with “Watermelon Sugar”, which flows from 42-28. This one follows “Adore You”, which spent a week at the top last month. The highly-anticipated collaboration from Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande is new at #38: “Rain On Me” showers the two women with their 21st and 22nd top 40 hits at the format, respectively. Grande is also at #18 with the Justin Bieber collaboration “Stuck With U”, which moves up from #22 last week. Jackson Wang leaps from 43-39 with “100 Ways”, his second top 40 entry of the year and the first since record label 88rising’s collaboration “Walking”, which got as high as #37 in January. Lastly, Alec Benjamin scores his first top 40 song with “Oh My God”, rising from 44-40.

Into the top 50, Katy Perry sprouts at #43 with “Daisies”, which is already in the top 20 on the Hot AC chart. As mentioned above, Doja Cat claws back onto the Top 40 chart with the Gucci Mane-assisted “Like That”, which climbs aboard at #45. One spot lower, the DaBaby and Roddy Ricch collaboration “Rockstar” starts strumming and rocks it out at #46. Both this single and “Like That” are well into the top 40 on the Rhythmic chart with current peaks of #13 and #23, respectively. Finally, Cyn reaches the top 50 with her first ever chart entry, “Drinks”. Landing at #49, the song is taken from the soundtrack to Promising Young Woman.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (May 19, 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: from blueberries to watermelons and everything in-between, the usual log is very tasty this week. Grab a bowl and let’s add ’em up:

AN X-CITING WEEK: With the follow-up to the top 20 single “What A Man Gotta Do”, the Jonas Brothers and featured artist Karol G put an “X” on the top spot with this week’s Most Added song, surging in with 104 stations on impact. The tune debuted at #45 on last weekend’s published update. Finishing in second place, Harry Styles‘s “Watermelon Sugar” certainly passed the taste test, earning 63 stations on impact after some early action. Last weekend, “Watermelon” ranked just above “X” at #42.

Tied for third place this week, Doja Cat‘s latest single, the Gucci Mane-assisted “Like That”, and Lil Mosey‘s “Blueberry Faygo” scored with 30 adds each, while Katy Perry‘s “Daisies” flowered with a fifth place finish and 24 stations two weeks before its adds date. “Blueberry” climbed to #36 by last weekend’s official chart, while “Daisies” and “Like That” were just below the top 50.

Charting singles from Ariana Grande & Justin Bieber and Megan Thee Stallion return to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap, including data on the new collaboration from Lady Gaga and Grande.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (May 5, 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: Marshmello and Halsey‘s new collaboration dominates the adds report with some kindness for the pop radio panel. Let’s add ’em up:

THAT “KIND” OF A WEEK: With an impressive 130 stations on impact, “Be Kind” by Marshmello and Halsey earns the week’s Most Added title at the Top 40 format. The song also scored a top ten rank on yesterday’s report at the Hot AC format. After a #40 debut on last Sunday’s published chart, “Kind” should make a nice move up the survey by the weekend and will likely appear in the top ten again on next Tuesday’s log.

A handful of newer releases also entered the top ten this week, but with add totals that weren’t nearly as substantial. The highest of those, Cyn‘s “Drinks”, managed a fourth place finish with 19 stations on impact. It’s her second track to impact here: “Holy Roller” was the first about a year ago, though it didn’t crack the top 50.

Charting singles from Megan Thee Stallion and Twenty One Pilots return to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap, including data on the new release from Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 25, 2019)

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: lightning could strike twice for Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello at the format, as they lead a busy top ten ahead of a slower holiday week. Alright, señoritas and señores, let’s add ’em up:

GOING GOING SHAWN: Even though it’s not a hot Justin Timberlake cover, a totally different “Señorita” from Mendes and Cabello is easily this week’s Most Added release at Top 40 radio, picking up 124 stations on impact. However, Mendes’s past single “If I Can’t Have You” cleared the entire panel of 183 stations in its first week a month ago. While that track continues to gain in the top ten, Cabello is also in the top 40 with the Mark Ronson collaboration titled “Find U Again”. Look for “Señorita” to grab some top 30 action by the weekend at both this and the Hot AC radio charts, where it earned a first-week total of 25 stations yesterday.

Zara Larsson also had a solid day for her current single “All The Time”, which made a very timely entrance in third place with 33 stations during the session. A posthumous single by Avicii, featuring a lead vocal by successful collaborator Aloe Blacc, ranked a notch lower with 25 adds during the session. Both “SOS” and the aforementioned “All” should enter the top 50 very soon.

Proven winners from Lewis Capaldi, Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift, as well as additional new songs from Ava Max and Cyn, are among the rest of entries filling out the top ten this week.

Next week, watch out for some early action on Ellie Goulding and Juice WRLD‘s new collaboration, as well as some other titles that are impacting next month.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. SHAWN MENDES & CAMILA CABELLO, “Señorita” (Island/Republic)
1. TAYLOR SWIFT, “You Need To Calm Down” (Republic)
3. ZARA LARSSON, “All The Time” (TEN/Epic)
4. AVICII featuring ALOE BLACC, “SOS” (Geffen/Interscope)
5-T. AVA MAX, “So Am I” (APG/Atlantic)
5-T. MILEY CYRUS, “Mother’s Daughter” (RCA)
7. LEWIS CAPALDI, “Someone You Loved” (Capitol)
8-T. HERVE PAGEZ & DIPLO featuring CHARLI XCX, “Spicy” (Mad Decent)
8-T. MARK RONSON featuring CAMILA CABELLO, “Find U Again” (RCA)
10. CYN, “Holy Roller” (Unsub/Caroline)
