RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (October 22, 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. With all the Christmas albums making their way into the marketplace this week, you’d hardly know that Halloween hasn’t even happened yet. Seriously, calm down, folks. There are no seasonal songs on the pop chart just yet, thankfully, but we can still unwrap the gift that is my weekly commentary:

“SORRY” SEEMS TO BE THE HOTTEST WORD: Some call her Demigod Lovatican, because her musical catalog is a religious experience. Others, well… others just say they’re casual fans of her material, which is perfectly fine too. Demi Lovato soars from 6-1 on this week’s CHR/Top 40 list with “Sorry Not Sorry”, marking the largest climb to #1 since 2005, when Mariah Carey‘s “Shake It Off” bolted from 7-1 (9/16/05 R&R) to begin a five-week stay. “Sorry” is the singer’s second #1 track at the format, following “Give Your Heart A Break” (9/2-9/12 MB) from her Unbroken album. You’ll recall that “Give” took 25 weeks in the top 40 to reach the top spot, the second-longest run in the history of the format behind Alessia Cara‘s 26 weeks for “Here” in 2016, so “Sorry” claiming #1 in its 14th week isn’t too bad at all.

With Lovato’s song advancing to #1, “Sorry Not Sorry” swaps places with last week’s chart-topper, “Look What You Made Me Do” by Taylor Swift, which tumbles to #6 after just one frame at the top. That giant fall ties the record for the largest drop from #1 during the PPW (or plays-per-week) era, which also occurred in July 1997, when “Mmmbop” by Hanson fell from 1-6 (7/18/97 R&R) after nine weeks at the summit. You might ask, “Where’s the love?” I will come to you with a weird answer this time aroundif only I can remember it. (The trio’s “I Was Born” is accumulating airplay at the Hot AC format, but hasn’t charted yet.)

WHAT’S “NEW” THIS WEEK?: Plenty to celebrate on the pop chart this week, as four new songs break into the top 50. Leading the latest batch of debuts is “Faking It”, new at #44 for Calvin Harris and featured artists Kehlani and Lil Yachty. Harris’s prior top ten track, “Feels”, narrowly snuck back into the top 40 for the published update, but it will be removed next Sunday. It’s likely to become Kehlani’s second top 40 single and Lil Yachty’s third, all three of which have been in a featured role. Christian hip-hop artist NF follows at #46 with “Let You Down”. It’s taken from his former #1 album, Perception, and impacts at the format this week. We’ll see if the performer can break away from the faith-based world for a moment to score a big pop hit.

Entering at #49 is another single that’s headed for adds this Tuesday: a remix of “Reggaetón Lento” by CNCO and Little Mix. That song has already been a smash across Latin America, and it even hit #5 in the U.K., largely due to the inclusion of the female quartet and their streak of hits in that country. (Of course, they won The X Factor there in 2011.) Lastly, at #50, is a new single called “New” from teen singer Daya. Several months ago, she just missed the top 50 at the format with “Talk”, the fourth single from her Sit Still, Look Pretty album (though it was released after she had already departed her former label for a new home, Interscope Records.) It’s looking to become her fifth top 40 hit sometime next month.

Chart Notes:

  • She first made my personal chart in 2000 with “There You Go”, and now, pop superstar P!nk has her seventh #1 on my list with “What About Us”. It rises from 4-1 this week, displacing Taylor Swift‘s “Look What You Made Me Do” after a total of three weeks at the top. Each of the singer’s last four albums, including a hits compilation, has included at least one #1 song, though it’s not always been the lead single. Her longest stay so far was in 2008, when “So What” had a six-week run.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is the third top 40 solo hit for One Direction‘s Harry Styles. “Kiwi” is new at #37. This single follows “Two Ghosts”, which recently peaked at #6 and is still in the top 20 this week. Styles’s newest radio release is one of two (so far, at least) scheduled to impact at Top 40 radio stations on Halloween. (We hope it’s a real treat for everyone!)
  • Climbing aboard at #39, “No Peace In Quiet” is the second single to make my chart from Delta Rae‘s EP titled A Long And Happy Life. The title track got as high as #26 this past May. “Peace” goes for adds this week at the Country radio format, so don’t forget to wish the band good luck on Monday!

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut makes for an interesting footnote in the history of Adam’s Top 40. The single “Don’t Dream It’s Over” originally went to #3 on R&R in April 1987 for Crowded House, and it’s now charted as a cover twice on my chart. In 2003, it spent three weeks at #1 that March and April for Sixpence None The Richer, which also reached the top ten on Hot AC radio. Now, The Head And The Heart brings it back, coming in at #37 this week. It has some minor Triple A thus far, but I’m hoping for the best.
  • Singer and songwriter Noah Kahan had his chart debut earlier this year, going as high as #5 in May with “Young Blood”. He’s had a few single releases since then, but his second to be serviced to the Triple A format is “Hurt Somebody”, which is new at #38 on my chart this week. Kahan is currently opening for The Strumbellas, who spent three weeks at #2 in May of last year with “Spirits”.
  • With the third single off her “mini-album” called Nervous System, which was released in July, Julia Michaels leaps onto the countdown at #39 with “Worst In Me”. Of course, her biggest of the three tracks to date is “Issues”, which spent a week at the top in April. The song finds itself just below the top 40 on the Hot AC chart, with some minor Top 40 airplay coming in for it as well.
  • Finally, at #40, is a performer that ruled the pop chart in the 80’s with hits like “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” and “Love Is A Battlefield”. Pat Benatar now has her first entry on my chart with “Dancing Through The Wreckage”, featured in a new documentary called Served Like A Girl. It recently reached the top 30 on the AC chart, buoyed by airplay from Delilah.

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s pair of debuts are by solo males with their third top 40 singles: Niall Horan, at #36 with “Too Much To Ask”, and Scott Helman, at #38 with “PDA”. Horan’s two previous chart hits, “This Town” and “Slow Hands”, went to #1, with the latter single spending seven weeks at the top. (It’s currently at #13.) The three songs can found on his upcoming album Flicker, due October 20. Helman’s new one is the second single from Hôtel de Ville and follow-up to “Kinda Complicated”, a #4 hit from earlier this year. Two years ago, he peaked at #8 with “Bungalow” from an EP titled Augusta.
  • Due to Yom Kippur, commentary is limited this week, but it will return in full next week!

NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of September 29, 2017

Love is coming her way.

Here come the girls! As the end of September approaches, the ladies are bringing the heat with their powerful pop sets. Here are the albums and singles you need to know this week:

DEMI LOVATO – Tell Me You Love Me (iTunes)
Lovato has been all over the radio this summer and fall, including her collaboration with Cheat Codes called “No Promises”, as well as the lead single from her latest album, “Sorry Not Sorry”. A number of instant grats from the album have also done well. It should be one of the top debuts on next week’s chart, due to solid sales and streaming statistics. Will it reach #1? Stay tuned.

MILEY CYRUS – Younger Now (iTunes)
The other of the former Disney stars in the mix this week is Cyrus, who took her breezy “Malibu” into the top 20 on both the Hot AC and CHR/Top 40 charts. The title track from the release was issued as the follow-up single, but it’s since been pulled, with no word on a third single as of yet. Still, Cyrus will likely make a splash in the top five on the Billboard 200.

SHANIA TWAIN – Now (iTunes)
Twain’s first studio album in 16 years features “Life’s About To Get Good”, which is approaching the top ten on the AC chart. The set won’t come anywhere near her three Diamond-certified albums in the long run, but it’s pretty nice to have a new collection of songs from her.

More albums out this week: A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie‘s The Bigger Artist (iTunes), Barns Courtney‘s The Attractions Of Youth (iTunes), Dolly Parton‘s I Believe In You (iTunes), Hoodie Allen‘s The Hype (iTunes), Jamie Lawson‘s Happy Accidents (iTunes), Michael Jackson‘s Scream (iTunes), Robin Schulz‘s Uncovered (iTunes), Tamar Braxton‘s Bluebird Of Happiness (iTunes), Wolf Alice‘s Vision Of A Life (iTunes)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (September 24, 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. There’s only one direction that this analysis is headed, and that’s toward the top of the chart! Check out this week’s #1 song and notable debuts in the top 50:

AND “SLOW” IT GOES: 20 weeks in the top 40 to finally hit #1 on the CHR/Top 40 chart… it’s not a record, but the “slow” crawl up the charts for Niall Horan‘s “Slow Hands” took a whole lot of work. Climbing from 2-1, this single marks the second member of One Direction to hit the top as a solo artist, following ZAYN. “Slow” is also Capitol’s first chart-topper here in over three years; in August 2014, Sam Smith spent two weeks at #1 with “Stay With Me”. Horan’s big hit stands at #4 on the Hot AC chart, and it’s top 20 on the AC list. (It also squeaks into the top 50 on the Rhythmic chart, but don’t expect it to go much further without a remix with Gucci Mane or Quavo or the most random rapper around.)

Horan’s “Too Much To Ask”, the third single from his upcoming Flicker album, has some small momentum at both Hot AC and Top 40 radio, which should pick up as a result of “Slow” reaching its final destination. “Too” quickly climbed to #1 on iTunes a little over a week ago, but has since dropped off dramatically. All five original members of One Direction have solo releases on the airwaves, though they’ll just miss appearing on the survey together, with Louis Tomlinson‘s single crashing and ZAYN‘s collaboration with Sia still under the top 50. It was a good effort, kids. Maybe next time!

IN THE NICK OF TIME: Nick Jonas returns to the CHR/Top 40 airwaves and the format’s top 50 this week with “Find You”. It debuts at #46, one of four new entries to the 41-50 portion of the chart. Jonas last entered the top 40 here with the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted “Bacon”, which spent two weeks at #37 in September 2016, effectively ending his Last Year Was Complicated era. His only #1 hit to date is “Jealous”, which spent a week at the top in January 2015. It was one of the more puzzling choices for iHeartMedia’s artist integration program, On The Verge, which gives an airplay boost to new or up-and-coming acts. (The Jonas Brothers had a total of six top 40 singles prior to Jonas’s selection in September 2014, the last of which, “First Time”, was a part of a campaign with the company under its previous name, Clear Channel. It peaked at #36 for three weeks in July and August 2013.)

Jonas’s older brother, Joe Jonas, lead singer of DNCE, found himself on the chart earlier this year with the Nicki Minaj-assisted “Kissing Strangers”, which got as high as #26 in May. Kevin Jonas hasn’t had any solo top 40 tunes, though I imagine that if the trio ever came back together for a new album, he’d probably on-board with it. What about the “Bonus Jonus”, younger brother Frankie? Does he have Top 40 aspirations? Ooh, the Jonas empire continues its pop presence, so stay tuned…

WHAT LAUV’S GOT TO DO WITH IT: After recent notable adds at WHTZ/New York City and WHYI/Miami, the first chart hit by Lauv is in at #50 this week, titled “I Like Me Better”. He’s 23-year-old Ari Leff, currently based in Los Angeles, though he was in New York City during his college years. (You’ve probably seen him on PGTC before. Remember this piece from the end of 2005?) At the current time, Leff is continuing to keep his operations independent, with distribution of the release handled by Kobalt and radio promotion via in2une. It’s certainly not the first time this has happened, but the numbers are quite impressive so far. Look for them to continue to increase, as the song approaches the top 300 on iTunes and 165 million streams (in just its main version) on Spotify.

“Better” isn’t Leff’s only contribution to the format as of late. He’s also a co-writer/producer on “No Promises” by Cheat Codes, up from 8-6 this week. Of course, that hit features Demi Lovato. He’s also the vocalist on “A Different Way” by DJ Snake, impacting next week. That single, which was released on Thursday, is already starting to pick up significant airplay at a number of stations. He certainly has a lot on his plate, so look out for more pop bops from the young performer soon!

Chart Notes:

  • How does it feel to have eight #1 singles on my chart? Well, last week, just one performer could’ve given you the answer to that: Adele, who scored her first of eight in 2011 with “Rolling In The Deep”. However, this week, that achievement is tied by the one and only Taylor Swift, who rises 3-1 with “Look What You Made Me Do”, the first single from reputation. Her first #1 on my chart was “Love Story”, which spent three weeks at #1 in 2009. That single is tied with “Blank Space”, which had a three-week run in 2014-15, as her longest stretch at the top to date. Way to go, Taylor!
  • Ohio’s Walk The Moon scored three consecutive #1 songs on my chart from their last album, Talking Is Hard: “Shut Up And Dance” (three weeks, 2014), “Different Colors” (one week, 2015) and “Work This Body” (one week, 2016). That streak could continue with this week’s Highest Debut, “One Foot”, the first single from their forthcoming set. It’s new at #35. The song impacts at both Alternative and Triple A radio this week, and should perform well at both formats. Can the hot single also cross to Hot AC and Top 40 radio? Stay tuned.
  • Just a few spots below that band are this week’s two other debuts: “Find You” (#39) by Nick Jonas and “Dusk Till Dawn” (#40) by ZAYN featuring Sia. Jonas’s track is his second single to be released this year, with a full-length album expected in the next few months, while the latter track, though expected on ZAYN’s second solo album, is also featured in the trailer for the upcoming film titled The Mountain Between Us. All five members of One Direction now appear as soloists in the top 40, a chart first.
