RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (January 10, 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. If you’re craving a lil bit of pop radio action, here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

A CLEAR POSITION: Easily earning a fourth week at #1, Ariana Grande leads the Top 40 chart once again with “Positions”. At the Rhythmic and Hot AC formats, the song is still gaining and appears at #11 and #14, respectively.

Spain’s HVME has this week’s only new song in the top 40 with “Goosebumps”, a flip of a Travis Scott song, which leaps from 42-38. It’s his first top 40 hit.

In the top 50, three new entries are led by Australian performer The Kid LAROI, who debuts at #43 with “Without You”. The song is the follow-up to “So Done”, which moves up to #27 on the list. Landing at #44, Nelly and Florida Georgia Line are in with “Lil Bit”. Of course, the duo worked with Nelly on the remix of their crossover hit “Cruise”, which spent four nonconsecutive weeks at #7 in June and July 2013. The only other entry of note is Fousheé‘s “Deep End”, a recent viral tune that comes in at #50.
