RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (August 11, 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. When we all fall asleep, we go straight up to the top of the pop chart… well, at least if you’re a 17-year-old star with fans around the world. Let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

PRETTY FLY (FOR A BAD GUY): After patiently waiting it out in the #2 spot, Billie Eilish‘s “Bad Guy” advances from 2-1 this week on the Top 40 chart, marking her first #1 song at the format. Her hit is also #1 on the Alternative chart for a third week, giving Eilish her longest individual run at the top there. On the pop airwaves, “Bad” was only up around 130 spins in the last week, so we’ll have to wait and see if it can stick around at #1 for a second week or if something else will take over.

Three collaborations reach the top 40 this week, led by “Spicy”, up from 41-35 for Herve Pagez, Diplo and Charli XCX. The new interpretation of “Wannabe”, a #4 smash for the Spice Girls from March 1997, marks the first top 40 entry for Pagez, the fifth solo appearance for Diplo and the sixth for Charli XCX. Chris Brown and Drake score their 34th and 27th top 40 hits, respectively, as “No Guidance” rises from 45-38. It also remains at #1 on the Urban chart this week. Finally, up from 42-40, “Who Do U Love?” gets Monsta X and French Montana into the region. It’s the first top 40 song for the K-pop group and the fourth for Montana.

There’s plenty of other action in the top 50 this week, with Stephen Puth earning his first chart song in “Look Away” at #46. It was co-written by he and his brother, format chart-topper Charlie Puth. The streaming hit “Ransom” checks in at #47 for Lil Tecca, a rapper who turns 17 later this month and also scores his first entry here. With a current top five hit on the Alternative list, Dominic Fike is also new to the Top 40 chart, landing at #48 with “3 Nights”. Finally, just sneaking in at #50, is a collaboration from Armin Van Buuren and Garibay called “Phone Down”. In January 2017, a totally separate “Phone Down” peaked at #48 for Lost Kings and Emily Warren.
