RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 13, 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. This weekend, menorahs are burning bright across the nation and so is the pop radio chart, which lights up with new tunes. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

WHO’S BEHIND THE DIOR: 24KGoldn and Iann Dior hold at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the eighth week with “Mood”. The collaboration is now the longest-running #1 song of the year at the pop format. With two more chart weeks during 2020 for it to expand on that total, we’ll see if it goes any further soon.

Thanks to several songs headed to recurrent status, there’s quite a bit of action in the lower regions of the chart this week. Leading a pack of four new titles in the top 40, All Time Low and Blackbear leap from 46-33 with “Monsters”. It’s the first top 40 single for the band and the seventh for Blackbear, who was certainly on a hot streak in 2020. The tune holds at #1 on the Alternative chart this week, marking its 13th nonconsecutive week at the summit. Landing at #38 is “Body”, the third top 40 hit on the pop list for Megan Thee Stallion. It’s now in the top 20 on both the Rhythmic and Urban charts. Bad Bunny hops along and collects his third top 40 hit with “Dàkiti”, rising from 45-39. It’s the first top 40 single for his collaborator Jhay Cortez. Finally, jumping from 50-40 on the chart, Sigala and James Arthur score their first and second top 40 hits, respectively, with “Lasting Lover”. It remains at #1 on the Dance list for a third week in a row.

After two days of airplay, Taylor Swift‘s “Willow” bows at #41. It’s the first charting song from her new album Evermore. From the Alternative chart, two recent top five songs inquisitively reach the Top 40 list this week: Wallows with “Are You Bored Yet?” at #47 and Dayglow with “Can I Call You Tonight?” at #49. Finally, at #50, newcomer HVME sneaks into the region with “Goosebumps”, a flip of a Travis Scott song from 2016 that did not previously chart here, but hit #1 at the Rhythmic format in the spring of 2017.
