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: terrific triple digit wins for Maroon 5 and Taylor Swift‘s latest releases. Let’s add ’em up:

“NOBODY’S” SUPPOSED TO BE HERE: After a day of heavy action, Maroon 5’s “Nobody’s Love” secures the love of the radio panel, picking up 143 Top 40 stations on impact. Finishing in a strong second place, Swift’s “Cardigan” warms up with 110 adds. At this time, the former is headed for a top 30 move by the weekend, while the latter should make a larger debut within the top 40.

Impacting singles from DJ Khaled and Drake (#4), Jeremy Zucker (#6) and Jonas Blue and MAX (#8) also reached the top ten on impact, but with significantly smaller totals. “Popstar” is already inside the top 50 at the format. The latter two entries could enter the region (with continued support) during the latter part of August.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 26, 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. The end of July is here and the summer hits are taking over the chart and the heart… here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

HAVE A “HEART”: Dua Lipa earns her third #1 song at the Top 40 format with “Break My Heart”, which leaps from 3-1. Earlier this year, “Don’t Start Now” spent six weeks at the top, making her the only act to have more than one chart-topper in 2020. The hit also ranks at #9 on this week’s Hot AC chart update.

Earning their 28th top 40 single at the format, Maroon 5 vaults into the top 40 at #36 with “Nobody’s Love”. It’s their follow-up to “Memories”, which spent two weeks at #1 in February. The Juice WRLD and Marshmello collaboration “Come & Go” also enters at #40: it’s the third top 40 hit (and first posthumous entry) for the former artist, as the latter collects his ninth.

The only new title in the top 50 comes from DJ Khaled and Drake, who start at #50 with “Popstar”. This is the third collaboration between the two artists to reach the region here. The track is already in the top 20 on the Rhythmic radio chart and should approach the region on the Urban chart in the next week or two.

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: Juice WRLD‘s posthumous collaboration with Marshmello is all gooey and toasted at the top of the adds report. Let’s have a snack and add ’em up:

WHAT’S THE JUICE?: From the recent #1 album Legends Never Die, Juice WRLD and Marshmello’s “Come & Go” easily grabs the Most Added title on this week’s Top 40 report, scoring 58 stations on impact. The single also adds another seven stations at the Alternative format from today’s log, where it lands in fifth place. Look for the tune to do well on both charts: at Top 40, it will enter the top 50 by the weekend with a high debut.

Blackbear‘s “Queen Of Broken Hearts” remains strong for its official impact date after a fourth place finish last week. The track is in with another 30 stations, giving it the runner-up spot on the report. Zara Larsson‘s “Love Me Land” also had a great start with 26 adds in its first week, good for fourth place. There was also some action on Zedd and Jasmine Thompson‘s “Funny”, landing in fifth place with 22 stations, which compliments its twelve adds and second place finish from yesterday’s Hot AC adds update.

Charting singles from Avenue Beat and Kane Brown returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap, including data on the latest single from Maroon 5.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 4, 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: it’s a Perry pop party, as Katy Perry‘s latest single blasts to the top of the list and leads a top three full of hot impacting titles. Let’s add ’em up:

A “REALLY” GOOD START: Just ten stations away from clearing the whole panel, Katy Perry easily earns the Most Added title on this week’s Top 40 report with “Never Really Over”, securing 173 stations on impact. This total is one station less than her Skip Marley-assisted “Chained To The Rhythm” earned in its first week back in February 2017, which spent two weeks at #8 that April before quickly crashing off the survey after 14 total weeks. “Never” made its debut in the top 30 last Sunday and should easily blast into the top 20 by the weekend.

Two collaborations nearly tied for second place, but “Call You Mine” from The Chainsmokers featuring Bebe Rexha earned 66 stations in the session, just one add ahead of third place entry “Find U Again” from Mark Ronson and Camila Cabello. Both of these songs will easily score notable debuts on Sunday night’s update: “Call” has the edge for a move into the top 40 at this point.

Elsewhere in the top ten, you’ll find more music from 5 Seconds Of Summer, Ally Brooke, Lizzo, SHAED and others.

Next week, Russ‘s “Civil War” battles for a spot in the top ten, but more warriors await him on the battlefield. Stay tuned!

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. KATY PERRY, “Never Really Over” (Capitol)
2. THE CHAINSMOKERS featuring BEBE REXHA, “Call You Mine” (Disruptor/Columbia)
3. MARK RONSON featuring CAMILA CABELLO, “Find U Again” (RCA)
4. ED SHEERAN featuring CHANCE THE RAPPER and PNB ROCK, “Cross Me” (Atlantic)
5. LIZZO, “Truth Hurts” (Atlantic)
6. ALLY BROOKE featuring A BOOGIE WIT DA HOODIE, “Lips Don’t Lie” (Latium/Atlantic)
7. 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Easier” (Interscope)
8. DJ KHALED featuring SZA, “Just Us” (We The Best/Epic)
9. SHAED, “Trampoline” (Photo Finish/Caroline)
10. BILLIE EILISH, “Bad Guy” (Darkroom/Interscope)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 2, 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. Want some splashy June tunes? We have so many jumping into the chart waters these days. For all the latest info, let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

THEY’RE BACK, SUCKERS: After two weeks out of the top spot, “Sucker” by Jonas Brothers returns to #1 for a fifth week. It’s not unusual to see this kind of thing happen at the format now: this is the sixth time since the spring of 2016 that a single has earned at least a week at the top, fallen out for one week or more and then re-emerged at the summit. The band’s “Cool” has also received its second wind, moving from 15-14 with a larger gain in spins after appearing to stall out for the second half of May. With the trio’s new Happiness Begins album due on Friday, look for more smiles to pop up soon. (Feel free to fangirl like it’s 2008.)

Katy Perry earns this week’s Highest Debut at #29 with her 27th top 40 hit, “Never Really Over”. Perry is also featured on the song that moves up a notch to #17 this week: a remix of “Con Calma” by Daddy Yankee and Snow. “Never” also jumps in at #24 on this week’s Hot AC update, with more minor airplay at a handful of other formats. Lizzo soars from 47-33 with “Truth Hurts”, becoming her second top 40 hit at the format. “Juice”, her first entry at the format, has been pulled in favor of the surging “Truth”. It peaked at #25 two weeks ago. DJ Khaled and SZA also start their top 40 run here with “Just Us”, climbing from 42-36. This is the ninth tune from the former and the fourth for the latter to reach the region.

This week’s one new top 50 entry sneaks in at #50: “Carry On” is the first collaboration from Kygo and Rita Ora. The track is taken from the film Pokémon Detective Pikachu and is the first Pokémon-affiliated title to reach the chart in nearly 20 years.

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)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 26, 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. Happy Memorial Day! We’re saluting all the veterans and chart veterans alike this weekend, so let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

THAT’S “DANCING”: Sam Smith and Normani held off the Jonas Brothers in another super tight race on the survey, with a difference of about 40 spins between their respective tunes. Thus, “Dancing With A Stranger” remains at #1 for the second week and “Sucker”, a former #1 song, holds at #2 again. The latter song also tops the Hot AC list for the second week. It’s unclear what entry is going to lead the top 40 next week, as holiday programming will be affecting spins for the next few days. We’ll see what happens.

This week’s chart is short on debut action, but the titles that do make it in are all pretty significant. Blasting in at #30, “Easier” is the ninth top 40 hit for the Australian quartet 5 Seconds Of Summer and the first from their forthcoming album. Of their eight songs to previously enter the region, just one topped the list: “Youngblood”, a five-week #1 from last fall. Ed Sheeran also sneaks into the top 40 with a second collaboration from his forthcoming No. 6 Collaborations Project set. “Cross Me” debuts at #40, giving Sheeran his 18th top 40 hit here, while featured artists Chance The Rapper and PnB Rock receive their fourth and first, respectively. The lead single from the album, a collaboration with Justin Bieber titled “I Don’t Care”, moves from 11-9 on the same chart.

Additionally, DJ Khaled and SZA jump in at #42 with “Just Us” from the former’s Father Of Asahd album, which registered as the second Most Added tune on this past Tuesday’s report, as Lizzo checks in at #47 with “Truth Hurts”, which was added to the deluxe edition of her Cuz I Love You album. The latter entry, which was originally released in 2017, spiked at several platforms following its inclusion in a key scene in the Netflix film Someone Great last month. The track also storms in at #42 on this week’s Rhythmic radio update, while “Just” earns top 40 entries on both the Rhythmic (#27) and Urban (#44) charts (with more action to come.)
