ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 5, 2022)

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: Harry Styles nearly closed the panel in stylish fashion. Let’s add ’em up:

“WAS” WINS: Harry’s House is in the house at the Top 40 format, as the first single from the forthcoming Harry Styles album had a huge day on the adds report with 174 stations reporting on impact.

Ready for some more quarantunes and how they’re doing on the radio? Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

THE SECOND WEEKND: Gaining over 200 spins from last week, The Weeknd‘s “Blinding Lights” remains strong at #1 for the second week on the Top 40 radio chart. It climbs a notch to #4 on the Rhythmic radio chart and holds at #6 on the Hot AC radio list this week. With more than 2,200 spins separating “Blinding” from its competition at #2, it could very well earn a third week at #1.

The current collaboration from Diplo, Morgan Wallen and Julia Michaels titled “Heartless” is up from 42-38 this week, just as the different song of the same title by The Weeknd hits recurrent status. It’s Diplo’s sixth solo top 40 single, while also becoming the sixth for Michaels and the first for Wallen, who’s been charting at the Country radio format for several years. Meanwhile, Bazzi lifts from 43-40 with “Young & Alive”, his fourth top 40 entry here. You can find “Heartless” on Diplo’s forthcoming set Thomas Wesley, Chapter One: Snake Oil, due May 29, while “Young” is included on Bazzi’s forthcoming set Lost And Found, due June 19.

Sam Smith and Demi Lovato‘s new collaboration “I’m Ready”, which impacts at the Top 40 format on Tuesday, is well on its way towards a gold medal with a top 50 debut at #43. Megan Thee Stallion is also looking for an Olympic-size win with “Savage”, as it enters at #46 following its viral breakout on the video app TikTok. Another single that emerged from the platform is new at #50: Lil Mosey‘s “Blueberry Faygo” splashes into the top 50 without having officially impacted at the format. “Savage” and “Blueberry” now appear in the top 20 on the Rhythmic chart, with the former also climbing through the same region on the Urban chart.
