RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 28, 2019)

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. The end of July gives us lots of new tunes in the mix and a strong collaboration at the top, so let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

EYE FOR AN “I”: Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber‘s “I Don’t Care” holds at #1 on the Top 40 chart for a second week, still about 1,200 spins ahead of Billie Eilish‘s “Bad Guy” at #2. “I” also holds at #1 on the Hot AC list and lands at #14 on the AC chart. At the current time, it’s unclear whether or not the collaboration will remain at the top for a third week, or if Eilish’s big track will sneak in. However, “Bad Guy” does lead the Alternative chart on the latest update, where it advances from 2-1.

Earning his 12th top 40 release at the format, Sam Smith‘s “How Do You Sleep?” debuts at #32 on the list. His recent chart-topper with Normani, “Dancing With A Stranger”, spent two weeks at #1 in May. Following Smith, Kaskade and Meghan Trainor leap from 42-36 with “With You”, marking Kaskade’s first top 40 entry here and Trainor’s 11th. Rising from 46-38 on the list, “Panini” is the second top 40 hit for Lil Nas X and the follow-up to “Old Town Road”, which peaked at #4 last month. Lastly, moving from 42-39, “My Man” marks the first top 40 song as an artist for Delacey, who previously wrote chart hits for Halsey and Zara Larsson.

There’s even more action in the top 50 this week, with OneRepublic blasting into the #44 spot with “Rescue Me”, a current top 20 hit on the Hot AC survey. It might become the band’s first top 40 single here in 2-1/2 years. A few spots lower, NF bows at #47 with “Time”, as the performer looks to earn his fourth top 40 song to date next month. This week’s list also sees Monsta X reach the top 50 for the first time with “Who Do U Love?”, a collaboration with French Montana that begins at #49. The group’s new Japanese-language album, titled Phenomenon, is due in a few weeks.

Next week, look out for potential new chart entries from Chris Brown and Drake, as well as Illenium and Jon Bellion.

RECORD REWIND 2019: PGTC Picks, Week Twenty Six

PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
KIM PETRAS – “Shinin'” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: 13th appearance

With the release of her newest album Clarity on Friday, this is probably the last appearance from Petras you’ll be seeing here on the Rewind for some time. That being said, this is really good album closer to what’s been an amazing (and sometimes unexpected) era.

ADAM LAMBERT – “Comin In Hot”
DELACEY – “The Subway Song”
PARSON JAMES, WRABEL & VINCINT – “Oh Love”

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 9, 2019)

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. Happiness fills the air at the format, but the feeling may not be as strong by next week. Let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

SUCK THIS SIX PACK: With their new album Happiness Begins headed towards the top of the Billboard 200, “Sucker” from the Jonas Brothers remains at #1 for the sixth nonconsecutive week on the Top 40 list, while their follow-up single “Cool” is up a spot to #13. Ironically, the three guys will likely be kicked out of the top spot again on next week’s chart by the performer that they name-check in “Cool”, as Post Malone‘s “Wow” (up 3-2 this week) appears ready to lead the list after five months in the top 40. (This run isn’t long enough to wow the chart geeks of the world, as it doesn’t break any records, but it’s still a slow one.)

After weeks upon weeks of bigger releases, the top 40 is finally returning to normal this week, with a number of singles climbing six, seven and eight positions following that volatile period. However, we also have three new tracks making it into the top 40, led by the collaboration “Call You Mine” by The Chainsmokers and Bebe Rexha at #35. This hit marks the twelfth top 40 entry for the duo and the 15th for Rexha. SHAED and Lewis Capaldi also earn their first top 40 tunes at the format this week: the trio is in with the recent #1 Alternative radio hit “Trampoline”, up 42-38, while Capaldi’s former U.K. chart-topper “Someone You Loved” climbs from 44-40.

Joining the top 50 this week, “Find U Again” by Mark Ronson and Camila Cabello finds a way into the #41 spot. This single also makes its debut on the Hot AC chart this Sunday, landing at #45. It should easily enter the top 40 at both formats next week. New at #47 on the survey, we also find Cabello’s former bandmate from the group Fifth Harmony: of course, that’s Ally Brooke with the A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie-assisted “Lips Don’t Lie”. It’s her second chart song as a solo artist. Finally, at #49, is a newcomer that’s had plenty of top 40 action as a songwriter: she co-wrote Halsey‘s track “Without Me”, a #1 hit for four weeks from earlier this year. Now, Delacey is in with “My Man”. Her forthcoming EP is due later this year.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (May 28, 2019)

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: summer begins with an obvious choice, 5 Seconds Of Summer, but the second new single from Ed Sheeran this month is also catching some rays. Grab the sunblock and let’s add ’em up:

SECONDS IN FIRST: Jumping into the pool of pop this Tuesday, we have two releases clearing 100 stations in their first weeks. Leading things off, “Easier” by 5 Seconds Of Summer is an easy pick for the panel, as it starts with 154 adds on impact. The song is off to a great start on the chart as well, as it debuted at #30 last Sunday after just three days of airplay. Will it become their second #1 hit at the format later this season? Too soon to say, especially with a number of big single releases still on the way, but it should continue its ascent at a decent pace.

The other big title on this week’s log is Sheeran’s collaboration with Chance The Rapper and PnB Rock titled “Cross Me”. That song, which joined the chart at #40 on Sunday, has a strong second place finish with 110 adds. The single follows very quickly after the release of Sheeran’s “I Don’t Care” with Justin Bieber, which reached the top ten on the same update and may top the survey soon enough. Both songs can found on his forthcoming No. 6 Collaborations Project album, due July 12.

Elsewhere in the top ten, you’ll find two times the Lizzo, as well as enduring entries from artists like Billie Eilish and Halsey.

Next week, Katy Perry‘s new single “Never Really Over” should easily leap over the competition, including tracks from Daya and Miley Cyrus. Who else will heat up the date? Stay tuned.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Easier” (Interscope)
2. ED SHEERAN featuring CHANCE THE RAPPER and PNB ROCK, “Cross Me” (Atlantic)
3. LIZZO, “Truth Hurts” (Atlantic)
4. DJ KHALED featuring SZA, “Just Us” (We The Best/Epic)
5-T. BILLIE EILISH, “Bad Guy” (Darkroom/Interscope)
5-T. LIZZO, “Juice” (Atlantic)
7. HALSEY, “Nightmare” (Capitol)
8. MAX featuring QUINN XCII, “Love Me Less” (Arista/RED)
9-T. ALLY BROOKE featuring A BOOGIE WIT DA HOODIE, “Lips Don’t Lie” (Latium/Atlantic)
9-T. DELACEY, “My Man” (HITCO)
