ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 23, 2021)

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: Ariana Grande is positioned at the top once again. Let’s add ’em up:

ENJOY THE VIEW: Top 40 radio has a point of view on Ariana Grande’s “POV”, which leads the adds report with 81 stations on impact. This will soon be the third top 40 hit from the album Positions: both the title track and “34+35” reached #1 at the format.

Five adds behind Grande, Justin Bieber opened in second place with the Daniel Caesar and Givēon-assisted hit “Peaches”. At 76 stations this week, it comes in well ahead of another recent Bieber release, “Hold On”, scoring 24 adds and a fourth place finish. Meanwhile, featured artist Givēon is also breaking out with his own tune “Heartbreak Anniversary”, which takes fifth place with 18 new commitments from the panel.

Format newcomer Duncan Laurence also had a great day with “Arcade”, a hit which won the Eurovision Song Contest two years ago. Thanks in part to recent activity on TikTok, it’s having a successful second life: it secured up 50 adds on impact, good for third place.

Charting singles from Bebe Rexha, Cardi B and Masked Wolf returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (February 28, 2021)

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. Who’s licensed to appear at #1 this week? A look at what’s popping at the format may drive you to figure it out:

OUT FOR A DRIVE: In just its seventh week on the list, “Driver’s License” by Olivia Rodrigo charges down the Top 40 highway and parks it in the top spot. It’s her first #1 song at the format, which is not too shabby for her first ever charting hit. Now, how long will it continue to dominate? The answer to that, and when it will reach #1 at the Hot AC format, will be revealed soon.

Daya picks up her sixth top 40 single with “Bad Girl”, lifting from 41-38. It’s her first time in the region since early 2018. Australian newcomer Masked Wolf also makes the top 40 with “Astronaut In The Ocean”, up from 43-40. His first top 40 release has already made it this high (or higher) on the national charts in a number of countries in Europe, as well as his home country.

New entries from Conan Gray and AJR land just outside the top 50, with “Overdrive” entering at #43 and “Way Less Sad” starting at #46. The two tracks should have enough action to hit the top 40 next week, unless the forthcoming collaboration from Maroon 5 and Megan Thee Stallion or another larger release blocks their entrance temporarily.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (February 14, 2021)

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. Beyond the chocolates and flowers, it’s time to fall in love with the weekly pop radio survey for a recap of what’s popping at the format:

CAN I GET YOUR NUMBER: Ariana Grande just can’t keep away from the top spot! After a seven-week run at the top, her hit “Positions” fell to #3 last week, leaving Justin Bieber and Benny Blanco‘s “Lonely” to reach the summit. Now, Grande is back at the top with “34+35” and returns to the runner-up position with her former #1 smash. How will she add to her huge chart takeover? Stay tuned.

Dua Lipa scores this week’s Highest Debut in the countdown at #34 with “We’re Good”, becoming her 13th top 40 entry. It’s a part of a recent reissue of her 2020 album Future Nostalgia, dubbed the Moonlight Edition. The other three releases entering the region on this update are all from newcomers: Yung Gravy leaps up from 41-37 with “Oops!”, Fousheé lifts from 42-39 with “Deep End” and the band Glass Animals debuts at #40 with “Heat Waves”, a current top five hit on the Alternative radio chart.

The big action continues in the top 50 with another five debuts this week. The highest of them, which lands at #42, is from Meduza and Dermot Kennedy with their collaboration called “Paradise”. To date, the single has already peaked in the top ten or 20 across Europe and Australasia. Cardi B debuts at #44 with “Up”, which is certainly where it’s headed on the survey, while Daya charts for the first time in three years with “Bad Girl” at #45. Further down, JayQ The Legend begins at #49 with “It Could Be You” and Fat Joe enters the top 50 for the first time since 2016 with the DJ Khaled and Amorphous-assisted “Sunshine (The Light)” at #50.
