ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 17, 2020)

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: Benee successfully taps into her supapowers during a weak week here at the format; more on that below. Let’s add ’em up:

BENEE THERE, DONE THAT: Unfortunately, it’s fair to say that the fear over the spread of the Coronavirus was the new entry that dominated this week’s adds report. It was inevitable: numbers were down severely and many stations reported no adds.

Of this week’s impacting songs, Benee‘s first release at the format, the Gus Dapperton-assisted “Supalonely”, managed to find a total of 30 stations on impact, making it the Most Added release today. On a normal week, it likely would’ve done much better.

Bazzi‘s latest single also pulled in 19 stations for a third place finish, as “Young & Alive” also struggled given the circumstances.

Charting songs from Demi Lovato, Lauv and Maren Morris are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap. Stay safe out there.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. BENEE featuring GUS DAPPERTON, “Supalonely” (Republic)
2. DEMI LOVATO, “I Love Me” (Island/Republic)
3. BAZZI, “Young & Alive” (APG/Atlantic)
4-T. LAUV, “Modern Loneliness” (AWAL/in2une)
4-T. SURFACES, “Sunday Best” (10K Projects/Capitol)
6-T. 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Old Me” (Interscope)
6-T. BRYCE VINE, “Baby Girl” (Sire/Warner)
6-T. MAREN MORRIS, “The Bones” (Columbia)
9-T. CHELSEA CUTLER, “Sad Tonight” (Republic)
9-T. SAINT JHN, “Roses” (Godd Complexx/HITCO)

Chart Notes:

  • Chart newcomer Sam Fischer rises from 2-1 with “This City” in its 13th week on the chart. The Australian-born singer/songwriter, now based in Los Angeles, is also headed up the Hot AC radio chart with the song and impacts at the Top 40 format on Tuesday. Demi Lovato and Lady Gaga are tied for the Biggest Mover title at nine spots each, with “I Love Me” (35-26) and “Stupid Love” (20-11) poised for higher peaks. Debut action in the top 40 is busy this week, with “Caution” from The Killers leading the way at #32. The band’s forthcoming album, Imploding The Mirage, is due May 29. The third top 40 hit on my chart for Tones And I, “Bad Child”, debuts at #34. It replaces “Dance Monkey”, her former chart-topper, which dropped to #34 last week and is out of the top 40 now. A little further down, OneRepublic returns with “Didn’t I”, new at #38, as the viral release “Supalonely” lands at #39 for two newcomers: Benee and Gus Dapperton. The former is the current single from the band’s forthcoming album Human, due May 8. The latter is from the New Zealand singer’s EP Stella & Steve, which was released last fall.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 10, 2020)

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: Demi Lovato empowers the panel with her latest hit, while several other titles are truckin’ into the top ten. Let’s add ’em up:

“ME” TIME: The return of Demi Lovato has given us an emotional ballad in “Anyone” and the bold pop anthem “I Love Me”, this week’s top song on the adds report at Top 40 radio. It starts with 152 stations on impact, which compliments its haul of 27 stations at the Hot AC format yesterday, where it also ranked in first place. After debuting at #30 on the most recent published update, this tune is looking bound for the top ten, which would give the performer her highest-charting entry in more than two years here.

New releases by 5 Seconds Of Summer and Bryce Vine also managed to pull in some great adds this week. Both “Old Me” and “Baby Girl” tied for a second place finish with 33 stations during the session. The two singles should easily land in the top 50 in the next couple of weeks. Breland‘s recent viral song “My Truck” also drives into the top ten for the first time, placing seventh with 13 more stations coming in this week. This past Sunday, the tune officially parked in the top 50 at the Rhythmic radio format.

Charting songs from Doja Cat, Lady Gaga and Surfaces are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

The TikTok crowd has already gone wild for emerging songs from Benee and Sam Fischer, so we’ll see how they do next week at the format. Will anyone else join the impact party? Stay tuned.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (March 8, 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. Sunday’s best-performing records are in the mix and ready for your ears. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

HOW DO YOU DUA: Pop star Dua Lipa earns a third week at #1 with the international smash “Don’t Start Now”. In the process, the single eclipses 19,000 spins for the week at the format, and while that number isn’t a record, it’s certainly indicative that “Don’t” still has room to grow.

Demi Lovato quickly jumps into the top 40 after just two days of airplay with “I Love Me”, which starts at #30. This is her 15th top 40 single to date. Lauv‘s “Modern Loneliness” also makes its top 40 entry this week, up 48-40, becoming his seventh top 40 hit. It’s been a big week for the independent performer, who just released his ~How I’m Feeling~ album on Friday.

The duo Surfaces manages to surface at #49 this week with their viral hit “Sunday Best”, their first chart entry at the format. Video app TikTok is responsible for the track’s sudden resurgence, which was originally released 14 months ago. The only other new single in the region is a collaboration from Diplo, Morgan Wallen and Julia Michaels, who start at #50 with “Heartless”. The original version of the song, which doesn’t feature Michaels, narrowly missed the top 50 on the Hot AC survey last fall. (The updated version also debuts at #46 at that format this week.)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (February 9, 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. Alas, we won’t be thanking the Academy for any awards tonight, but we can award some top pop hits with this analysis. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

TO THE MAROON AND BACK: Maroon 5 holds at #1 for the second week on the Top 40 chart with “Memories”. The big hit is now up to its 11th week at the top on the Hot AC chart and also remains strong at the AC format, where it holds at #6 this week. The battle for next week’s #1 tune should be an interesting one, with both “Memories” and Post Malone‘s recent chart-topper “Circles” (at #2) in the hunt for an extra frame, as Dua Lipa‘s “Don’t Start Now” (at #4) continues its ascent through the top five.

The big midweek release from Khalid and Disclosure, “Know Your Worth”, blasts onto the survey at #33. The tune becomes their tenth and third top 40 entries, respectively. As “Juicy” continues to drip down the chart, Doja Cat rises from 41-34 with her second top 40 single, “Say So”. Justin Bieber also breaks into top 40 with the Quavo-assisted “Intentions”, another of the songs from his forthcoming album Changes, at #39. It’s the 28th top 40 hit for Bieber and the seventh solo entry for the Migos member. The track is the follow-up to “Yummy”, which has stalled out after a very short run and tumbles from 12-16.

All three top 50 debuts on this week’s update are performed by women: Meghan Trainor with the Nicki Minaj-assisted “Nice To Meet Ya”, Noah Cyrus with “July” and Demi Lovato with “Anyone”. They start at #44, #45 and #48, respectively. Trainor’s track also enters the top 50 (#43) on this week’s Hot AC chart, where Cyrus’s song is up to #38. (Lovato’s cut is just below the top 50.)
