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. If you believe in a higher power or the power of magic, then it just so happens to a great week to check out the musical and mystical adventure of the pop format and these top titles:
PICKING UP THE PEACHES: Justin Bieber spends a fourth week at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart with Daniel Caesar and GIVĒON-assisted “Peaches”, as Dua Lipa is back on the move with “Levitating”, lifting from 4-2. Will it ascend to the top next week? Stay tuned.
The only new entry in the top 40 comes from Coldplay, whose “Higher Power” rises from 42-39. The current top ten song on the Alternative chart is their 13th top 40 hit at the pop format since first ranking here in 2001.
Three titles enter the top 50 this week. Leading the way, Tomorrow x Together works their musical “Magic” and completes a chart trick at #47. New at #49, P!nk is in with “All I Know So Far”, the title cut from the soundtrack to her new Amazon documentary. Finishing things off at #50, “First Time” sneaks into the region for Illenium and Iann Dior.
