RADIO REPORT: What’s Popping At Top 40 Radio This Week (January 6-7, 2020)

It’s time once again to analyze the airwaves and find out if your favorite new releases will be lighting up your local station’s playlist this week. Which tunes will climb to the top and which ones will hit a stop? Here are three new hits impacting this week at the Top 40 format:

CAMILA CABELLO featuring DABABY – “My Oh My” (Syco/Epic)
Album: Romance (2019)
Past T40 History: After a double single release that earned only moderate results, Cabello’s latest single is roaring into the top 40.

JUSTIN BIEBER – “Yummy” (Def Jam)
Album: TBA (2020)
Past T40 History: Bieber’s 27th top 40 hit at the pop format had a huge top 30 entry yesterday. It’ll easily be the Most Added title.

LEWIS CAPALDI – “Before You Go” (Capitol)
Album: Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent (Expanded) (2019)
Past T40 History: Capaldi led the pop survey for four weeks last year with “Someone You Loved”. Will his new track be loved too?

After an early debut in the top 50 last month, newcomer Trevor Daniel‘s “Falling” should fall into the top five on the adds report when it officially impacts next week.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (January 5, 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. New year, same number one! However, this week’s chart is also full of some decent action and several new songs. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

CIRCLING ANOTHER YEAR: Post Malone‘s “Circles” holds at #1 on the Top 40 list for the fourth nonconsecutive week, as it’s now in the books as the last #1 single at the Top 40 format for the 2010’s and the first of the 2020’s. The multi-format hit remains at #8 on the Hot AC radio chart, while it pauses at #15 on the Rhythmic list.

Starting way up at #22, Justin Bieber scores his 27th top 40 hit at the format with “Yummy”, the highly-anticipated lead single off his forthcoming studio album. Bieber also lands at #10 as a part of the Dan + Shay collaboration “10,000 Hours”. Moving from 41-32, Camila Cabello earns her 15th solo top 40 hit with the DaBaby-assisted “My Oh My”, the latter of whom picks up his first. It’s likely that these two songs will complete a 1-2 finish on Tuesday’s adds report at the format, with Bieber leading Cabello/DaBaby.

Two other collaborations of note reach the top 50 this week, led by Iggy Azalea and Alice Chater‘s “Lola” at #47. The track marks the first top 50 entry for Azalea in about two years and the first ever chart appearance for Chater. At #50, “On Chill” chills at the end of the list for Wale and Jeremih. The former #1 at the Rhythmic and Urban formats is the first top 50 single on the pop chart in 6-1/2 years for the former, while the latter scores his first in nearly four.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 29, 2019)

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. We made it: 2019’s last official chart. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

THE CIRCLE ISN’T SMALL: As the end of the decade edges closer, Post Malone‘s “Circles” leads the Top 40 chart for the third nonconsecutive week. In terms of spins, it’s safely ahead of established hits by Lizzo (#2) and Selena Gomez (#3), so it might end up with one additional week at the top (unless Gomez’s song recovers enough to push through by next weekend. Stay tuned.)

The Weeknd‘s “Blinding Lights” shines from 44-38, marking his 13th top 40 song at the format. His prior single, “Heartless”, rises a notch from 16-15. Newcomer Doja Cat scratches into the top 40 as well, jumping from 41-39 with “Juicy”. It currently ranks at #7 and #12 on the Rhythmic and Urban radio charts, respectively. The hit is available in both an album version and a remix with Tyga.

Camila Cabello bolts into the top 50 at #41 with the DaBaby-assisted “My Oh My”, the newest single off her album Romance. It’s scheduled to impact at the format next Tuesday, while it heads for Hot AC adds a day earlier. Coming off larger seasonal airplay, the Jonas Brothers will spend a single week on the chart with “Like It’s Christmas”, which checks in at #48. It recently topped the AC radio list, though it drops from 1-8 on the new update. (Appropriately, the trio replaces themselves at the summit with “Sucker”.)

Happy New Year from PGTC! See you for more radio fun in 2020.
