ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 20, 2017)

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: DJ Khaled enlists Rihanna and Bryson Tiller for a “wild” song, and it challenges Calvin Harris‘s touchy feely new single with Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry and Big Sean. Gee, save some feature slots for someone else’s collaboration, will you? Anyways, let’s see what’s going down on Add Lib featuring Most Added Songs, Lots Of Chart Stats and Plenty Of Bad Puns:

“WILD” AND CRAZY KIDS: It’s anotha (number) one for yelling enthusiast DJ Khaled and his current hit from Grateful. The song is called “Wild Thoughts”, and it scores 115 stations on impact, making it the Most Added record at the CHR/Top 40 format. It also earns the Most Added title on this week’s CHR/Rhythmic and Urban add reports, posting 50 and 49 new stations, respectively. Of course, Rihanna and Bryson Tiller provide the non-screaming vocals on this song, which hit #2 on iTunes upon release. This is the follow-up to “I’m The One”, which is still going strong in the top five on the pop chart. (We’ll see if “Wild” affects it in the next few weeks.) If you think you’ve heard this single before, it might be because it heavily samples “Maria Maria” by Santana featuring The Product G&B, the Grammy-winning Supernatural hit that spent four weeks at #2 (3/31-4/21/00 R&R) at the format. Oh, to be ten again… in any case, look for “Wild” to be a huge multi-format success all summer long. That Rihanna reign just won’t let up!

“FEELS” LIKE A WINNER: Harris, Williams, Perry & Sean sounds like it might be one of those terrible law firms from the land of daytime TV, but it’s actually Calvin Harris, Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry and Big Sean coming together for a new hit off Harris’ forthcoming album, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1. “Feels” feels like a great collaboration for the format, and it has a stellar first week too, taking in 104 adds on impact. Along with “Wild Thoughts” above, eight of the top ten Most Added songs this week include a featured artist or are performed by multiple artists, which speaks to the continued support and success of these types of tracks. In time, however, this could result in some backlash toward the concept. We’ll just have to see what happens later this year. Next week should bring an additional collaboration into the top ten, from Machine Gun Kelly and James Arthur, while the song in the #7 spot this week, by Macklemore and Skylar Grey, should repeat its top ten status when it officially impacts at the format.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. DJ KHALED featuring RIHANNA and BRYSON TILLER, “Wild Thoughts” (We The Best/Epic)
2. CALVIN HARRIS featuring PHARRELL WILLIAMS, KATY PERRY and BIG SEAN
, “Feels” (Columbia)
3. DAVID GUETTA featuring JUSTIN BIEBER, “2U” (Atlantic-Def Jam)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 13, 2017)

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: David Guetta and Justin Bieber easily get 2R attention with a big song for the summer, while Bruno Mars comes close to hitting the ceiling with a “Floor”. Pucker up those lips for a tasty treat, because this week’s Add Lib report is freshly served and topped with plenty of sprinkles:

GUETT USED TO IT: Chances are that if you’re not a fan of Justin Bieber, you’ll be throwing your radio out the window soon. Bieber is featured on two current top ten tracks (“Despacito (Remix)” and “I’m The One”) and is poised to grab a third spot with the Most Added record at the format today, “2U” by David Guetta. It starts at a giant 147 stations on impact. The Canadian superstar has sung on five #1 hits, both main-credited and featured, since “What Do You Mean?” (10/18/15 MB) from his Purpose album. It’s been nearly six years since Guetta reached the top of the pop chart with the Usher-assisted “Without You” (11/20-27/11 MB) from his Nothing But The Beat album, though the 49-year-old French DJ/producer has stayed active since then. Will these international stars with an international smash take a flight to #1, much like where Bieber’s other two hits appear to be headed? Could a backlash throw a wrench into those plans? Ooh, the possibilities… we’ll get back to you soon with what develops!

A FORMAT FLOORED: With the new Top 40 smash from his top-selling 24K Magic album, Bruno Mars slows things down on his way to the crown with “Versace On The Floor”. On impact, the track takes in 47 new stations, good for the runner-up slot on this week’s report. Mars’s hit ranked just below the top 50 on last Sunday’s published update, but it’s sure to make a splashy debut now. The luxury brand turns 40 years old next year, and it’ll probably be another 40 years until I can afford something from them! Four years ago, a separate single simply called “Versace”, performed by Migos, peaked at #11 (9/29/13 MB) on the Urban list. A Drake remix aided that song’s run, though it didn’t crossover to the pop format. Coming off a #1 hit in “That’s What I Like”, Mars has a bit of momentum at the moment, so look out for this retro gem to soundtrack those steamy summer nights in the heart of the season.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. DAVID GUETTA featuring JUSTIN BIEBER, “2U” (Atlantic-Def Jam)
2. BRUNO MARS
, “Versace On The Floor” (Atlantic)
3. FIFTH HARMONY featuring GUCCI MANE, “Down” (Epic)
4. LIAM PAYNE featuring QUAVO, “Strip That Down” (Republic)
5-T. CHILDISH GAMBINO, Redbone” (Glassnote)
5-T. IMAGINE DRAGONS, “Believer” (KIDinaKORNER/Interscope)
7. BEBE REXHA featuring LIL WAYNE, “The Way I Are (Dance With Somebody)” (Warner Bros.)
8. FRENCH MONTANA featuring SWAE LEE“Unforgettable” (Eardrummers/Bad Boy/Interscope-Epic)
9. MAJOR LAZER featuring TRAVIS SCOTT, CAMILA CABELLO & QUAVO, “Know No Better” (Mad Decent/in2une)
10. LOGIC featuring ALESSIA CARA and KHALID, “1-800-273-8255” (Def Jam)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 11, 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. Yes, it’s the night of the Tony Awards, but a quick glance of the pop chart shows no soloists named Tony! Oh, well. I guess it’s time for me to play the leading role of chart geek in another charming production of the Radio Active report, so take your seats and let the show begin:

ZEDD OF THE CLASS: It’s another week at the top of the pop survey for DJ/producer Zedd and singer Alessia Cara, who stay in place (despite a small loss in spins) for the third week with “Stay”. Collaborations have occupied the top spot for nine weeks so far this year, and that number will continue to grow in the coming weeks! Additionally, “Stay” advances 11-10 on the Hot AC radio chart. At a very impressive 322 million streams on Spotify, this is now the most streamed song for both artists. (Cara’s previous hit, “Scars To Your Beautiful”, is just behind it at an equally massive 308 million streams.) Due to a continued lack of challengers, this will get a fourth week at #1 next Sunday, though it will get more difficult beyond that chart.

Newcomer James Arthur has the only entry in this week’s top five with “Say You Won’t Let Go”, up 6-5. It recently topped the Hot AC chart, though it looks like it’ll fall short of the top spot on the CHR/Top 40 list. No new tracks enter the top ten or top 20, as that logjam rears its ugly head once again. It’s okay, kids, we’ll get through it. I hope…

IT TAKES “2”: Just two songs debut in the top 40 on this week’s pop chart. The hot summer of Justin Bieber features continues on with “2U”, the latest release from DJ and producer David Guetta. It begins at #32, and its notable entry is due to hourly airplay on iHeartMedia stations during its release day on Friday. It hit #1 on iTunes, and currently sits at #2, sandwiched between… yes, the other two hits featuring Bieber: the remix of “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee (#8 this week) and “I’m The One” by DJ Khaled and friends (#7). Just a handful of top 40 titles have replaced the words “to” and “you” with a shorter “2” and “u”, including top ten tunes by The Jets (“Rocket 2 U” – #7, 4/1-8/88 R&R) and Sinéad O’Connor (“Nothing Compares 2 U” – #1, 4/20-5/4/90 R&R).

They might be down one member, but they’re up one top 40 entry this week. Now charting with their eighth top 40 song since 2013, pop quartet Fifth Harmony is in at #40 with “Down”, featuring rapper Gucci Mane. The group’s reached the top only once, with the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted “Work From Home” (5/29-6/5/16 MB). The last girl group to make the top ten with the original lineup, lose a member and then return to the top ten (without a replacement) was The Pussycat Dolls, who charted with “Don’t Cha” (#3, 9/2/05 R&R), “Stickwitu” (#1, 1/20-27/06 R&R) and “Buttons” (#1, 8/27-9/3/06 MB) as a sextet, then charted with “When I Grow Up” (#8, 8/10-17/08 MB) as a quintet.

MEET ME IN MONTANA: On a published chart that’s a bit forgettable, we have a debuting song called “Unforgettable”. Hey, the timing isn’t always perfect. 32-year-old French Montana scores his first main-credited entry with the single, which features Swae Lee of the duo Rae Sremmurd. The Moroccan-born rapper was featured on the remixes of two minor top 40 records from earlier this decade: Jonn Hart‘s “Who Booty” (#30, 1/20 + 2/3-17/13 MB) and Chris Brown‘s “Loyal” (#40, 6/8-15 + 6/29/14 MB). It’ll likely reach the top ten on the Rhythmic chart next week, where it ranks at #11 (up from #14) currently. (The track is also up 17-13 on the Urban radio list.) Well, Montana is The Treasure State, and several formats (and global lists) have certainly found a new one.

As far as other French feats from the chart archives, we find that one other French artist made the top 40 on the CHR chart. Dancing her way up to #3 during the first week of July in 1995, Nicki French scored her one U.S. hit with a cover of Bonnie Tyler‘s chart-topper “Total Eclipse Of The Heart” (9/23-10/7/83 R&R). Of course, I have to wonder: what would a French and French duet sound like? Je ne sais pas…

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (April 9, 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. So, call me Addie The Caddie, as we tee up a few tunes and putt down the usual pop course. That being said, let’s avoid those crowds at Mar-A-Lago. It sure is something when an owner has more holes in his stories than at his courses. Golf clubs, dance clubs… gotta cover them all here. So, let’s get shady with some musical ladies (mostly gentlemen this week, really) in the latest report:

EIGHT IS ENOUGH: Please, radio gods, can we please find another song to overplay? You know, one other than “Shape Of You”? Ed Sheeran‘s international hit is at #1 for an eighth week on the CHR/Top 40 chart, and someone (me) is really feeling the burn. At least it doesn’t set another record this week, but it also isn’t dropping like a rock yet. So, you know, let’s change that! Thank you. New single “Castle On The Hill” becomes Sheeran’s 13th top 40 entry on the pop chart, and second hit from ÷, as it climbs 43-36. “Galway Girl” and “Perfect” are two of the cuts that continue to perform well internationally. I’ll keep you updated if either song breaks at the format before an established impact date. For now, I think there’s plenty of him on the air.

Just below Sheeran, Bruno Mars holds at #2 for the second week with “That’s What I Like”, which looks set to hit #1 next week (or, at least I hope it’s able to seven days from now.) The last time an act recording for the Atlantic label (main roster or imprint) replaced another one at the top was about a year ago, when Flo Rida‘s “My House” knocked “Stressed Out” by twenty out pilots out on the March 13 chart. The duo returned to #1 later in the year with “Ride” (8/28/16 MB).

WHO’LL STOP THE CHAIN: Well, no one, at least for now. Duo The Chainsmokers continues to dominate on the pop survey this week, with two top ten songs from next week’s expected #1 album, Memories…Do Not Open. “Paris” is up 5-3, moving closer to a third #1 on the format for the guys, while “Something Just Like This” (with Coldplay) is up from 13-9. You probably caught them on Saturday Night Live last night, where they performed the former (featuring uncredited vocalist Emily Warren) and “Break Up Every Night”, a new cut from the album. Though “Something” is making the larger gains at this point, don’t be surprised if “Paris” stays in a holding pattern (while still gaining some) over the next few weeks.

Since their chart debut in 2001 with “Yellow” (#20, 4/27/01 R&R), Coldplay has scored with twelve top 40 songs on the CHR chart… but this is their first top ten hit. Yes, the four guys have never reached the top ten at the format until now. Previously, “Viva La Vida” (#11, 9/7/08 MB) and “A Sky Full Of Stars” (#12, 10/12/14 MB) came the closest to the region. Feel free to endlessly drag all of those lazy programmers at the format for allowing The Chainsmokers to be the reason Coldplay has one top ten song in 16 years. Honestly, kids, what are you doing?

DIRECTIONS AND CONNECTIONS: Harry Styles and ZAYN have gone in several directions musically, but the two singers in question, both bandmates in One Direction, are headed in an upward direction this week on the CHR chart. The latter singer’s new hit, “Still Got Time” (featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR), leaps from 34-26 in its third week on the chart, while the former singer grabs his first solo top 40 hit at #29 with “Sign Of The Times”. It’s the highest debut on the listing. Meanwhile, ZAYN’s former #2 single, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” (with Taylor Swift), slips from 3-5. “Sign” initially debuted in a version that ran 5:40, and had that held as the single version, it could’ve had the longest radio edit run time of a top 40 hit since Queen‘s reissue of “Bohemian Rhapsody” in 1992. That #3 hit (5/1/92 R&R) from Wayne’s World clocked in at 5:55. (A 4:07 edit has since been serviced to several formats.) Just a couple of months ago, ZAYN appeared on the chart at the same time as two other One Direction members, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan.

Of course, One Direction is not the first boyband to launch two of its members into the top 40 at the same time. In 2003, JC Chasez and Justin Timberlake of *NSYNC appeared on the pop chart simultaneously, the former with “Blowin’ Me Up (With Her Love)” (#13, 2/21/03 R&R) and the latter with “Cry Me A River” (#3, 1/24-2/14/03 R&R) and “Rock Your Body” (#1, 5/9-6/6/03 R&R). In 1999, two members of New Kids On The Block, Joey McIntyre and Jordan Knight, landed in the top 40 together. McIntyre’s “Stay The Same” (#16, 4/9/99 R&R) and “I Love You Came Too Late” (#28, 8/6/99 R&R) charted, as Knight’s “Give It To You” (#14, 5/21-6/11/99 R&R) was headed up and down the CHR survey. (The latter singer’s “I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man” (#31, 9/24/99 R&R) could’ve appeared with “Late” in the top 40, but it was late… by a week.)

DOES A “BODY” GOOD: 49-year-old David Guetta has six top ten pop hits to his credit, and he’s looking for his seventh with an interesting collaboration that features Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne, both of whom have appeared on prior Guetta tunes. “Light My Body Up”, which actually sounds pretty painful, lights up the survey at #50 this week. “Body” was one of the top ten Most Added hits at the format last week, and it could be there again this Tuesday, so stay tuned! Minaj is currently featured on another top 40 song at the moment, “Swalla” by Jason Derulo, which rises from 29-27.

It’s hard to believe that Guetta has been charting for nearly a decade now, first hitting in the spring of 2008 with “Love Is Gone”. The single (#41, 5/11/08 MB) featured vocalist Chris Willis, who also appeared on the DJ/producer’s “Gettin’ Over You” (#19, 7/18/10 MB) before disappearing from the pop chart. I do hope that he, and his body, are okay. (Don’t try lighting up anything at home, you’ll regret it quickly.)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 4, 2017)

Welcome to Add Lib, a new weekly 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: Halsey gets “closer” to her fourth top 40 single, Hey Violet brings a bit of color to the adds report and newcomer Olivia Holt gets historical with the hits, but we are not going to be indulging in the sort of hit history you can read about in Hit Men. Ready to partake in some pop power? I know I am, so let’s dive in:

HAL OF FAME: After spending ten weeks at #1 as a featured guest on “Closer” by The Chainsmokers, it’s no surprise that the new single from Halsey would generate a lot of attention. That song is “Now Or Never”, and it’s now the Most Added track on this week’s report, launching with 54 CHR adds in its first frame. It sounds like it’s been a busy day for both she and her label, but, then again, she is used to busy days. Her forthcoming studio album is due June 2, titled Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, which sounds like an out-of-service Disney World attraction. Luckily, her ride through the amusement park that we call the pop chart is just about to begin again. Prepare for liftoff! (Don’t come after me, Hallucinators, or whatever you call yourselves, it’s just a little fun.)

“BREAK MY” CHART: Roses are red, violets are blue, but Hey Violet had a nice adds week, and that’s good too. The quintet’s latest single is “Break My Heart”, the seventh Most Added song in the country this week, landing 18 CHR adds. Speaking of 18, that just so happens to be the peak of their last single, “Guys My Age”, which topped out at the position earlier this year. (The song also received some minor airplay at the Hot AC format.) Song titles about breaking hearts are commonplace at the format, from 1976’s “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” by Elton John and Kiki Dee to 2010’s “Break Your Heart” by Taio Cruz featuring Ludacris, a #1 single (John/Dee for seven weeks, Cruz/Ludacris for three weeks) in both cases. How will this one fare? Stay tuned.

HOLT ON TIGHT: You know their names: Jordan Fisher, Sabrina Carpenter, Shawn Hook. They all share one thing: the CHR brick wall of doom. (scary fx) In reality, these three Hollywood Records acts all had significant starts at the format in the last year or so, only to have their debut singles fall apart in the same region. So, as far as the label’s newest pop radio single, newcomer Olivia Holt‘s “History”, I’d have to think that bringing up that terrible thought would only be natural. After massive pop playlists on Spotify aided it to its current total of 63+ million streams, we’ll see if Holt can successfully make it outside of that bubble. With a number of meaningful stations playing it, it can make the leap. Otherwise, a peak in the 20’s could be the endgame once again.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. HALSEY, “Now Or Never” (Astralwerks/Capitol)
2-T. MACHINE GUN KELLY
featuring HAILEE STEINFELD, “At My Best” (Republic/Bad Boy/Interscope)
2-T. ZAYN featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR, “Still Got Time” (RCA)
4. DRAKE, “Passionfruit” (YMCMB/Republic)
5. KYLE featuring LIL YACHTY, “iSpy” (Indie-Pop/Atlantic)
6. DAVID GUETTA featuring NICKI MINAJ & LIL WAYNE, “Light My Body Up” (Parlophone/Big Beat/Atlantic)
7. HEY VIOLET, “Break My Heart” (Caroline)
8. ED SHEERAN, “Castle On The Hill” (Atlantic)
9. CALVIN HARRIS featuring FRANK OCEAN & MIGOS, “Slide” (Columbia)
10. OLIVIA HOLT, “History” (Hollywood)
