RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (March 6, 2022)

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. This week’s chart isn’t a complete mess, but one new entry is…

ABCDEF-TWO: 17-year-old GAYLE scores a second week at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart with “Abcdefu”, the first hit from A Study Of The Human Experience (Volume One), an EP due on March 18. It also ranks at #5 on this week’s Hot AC chart and #14 at the Alternative format.

Three songs charge into the top 40 this week: leading the pack, Camila Cabello and Ed Sheeran enter at #35 with “Bam Bam”, the second top 40 single from her forthcoming Familia album. The collaboration marks the 16th top 40 entry for Cabello as a solo artist and the 26th for Sheeran, who has three titles on the chart. Next, 5 Seconds Of Summer returns to the top 40 for the first time in two years with “Complete Mess”, new at #37. It’s the group’s 12th top 40 song to date, which isn’t messy whatsoever. Finally, Kygo and DNCE have all the right moves with “Dancing Feet”, which spins and sways from 49-38. It’s their eighth and sixth top 40 entries, respectively.

Aiming for her second top 40 entry, singer Mimi Webb lands at #46 with “House On Fire”, a recent top ten hit in the U.K. and Ireland. New at #47, “Freaky Deaky” teams Tyga and Doja Cat, a collaboration which also makes the top 40 at the Rhythmic radio format. Finally, after a major resurgence on TikTok, “Lost” debuts at #49 for Frank Ocean. The popular cut can originally be found on 2012’s channel ORANGE.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (February 20, 2022)

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 a “Ghost” with the most at #1 and much more ahead…

THIS JUSTIN: Scoring his 12th #1 song to date at the Top 40 format, Justin Bieber rises from 3-1 on the pop radio chart with “Ghost”. At the Hot AC and AC formats, it holds at #6 and #11 again this week, respectively.

Ed Sheeran appears on two songs reaching the top 40 on this week’s pop chart: climbing from 41-30, his Taylor Swift-assisted “The Joker And The Queen” has a particularly royal rise, marking their 25th and 35th top 40 entries, respectively. Bolting from 46-38, Tate McRae gets her fourth top 40 hit to date with “She’s All I Wanna Be”. Finally, it’s Sheeran again with his 26th entry as a featured artist on “Peru”, the first top 40 hit for Nigeria’s Fireboy DML. The song advances from 44-39 this week.

Iann Dior slides in at #48 with “Let You”, a track from his recent album On To Better Things.

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s chart update doesn’t feel like a ghost town, even if the new #1 song is about one. American Idol alum Benson Boone earns his first #1 on my personal chart with “Ghost Town”, moving from 2-1 in its 16th week on the chart. While that may seem like a slow run, Boone’s song has been riding in the top five for the past ten weeks, stalling at #3 for six of them. Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift leap 12 notches to #19 with this week’s Biggest Mover: their duet version of “The Joker And The Queen”. A pair of new tunes enter the top 40: at #36, Mimi Webb burns onto the survey with “House On Fire”, while newcomer Dove Cameron is flying in at #40 with “Boyfriend”.
