RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 19, 2021)

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. For a weekend full of women and other wonderous song titles, let’s see what’s popping at the format this week:

FREEZE WITH EASE: As the annual holiday freeze settles in, Adele sits at #1 on the Top 40 chart for a third week with “Easy On Me”. At the Hot AC radio format, the international hit leads the chart for a fifth week. Her latest album 30 is expected to sell well through the holiday season and into 2022, as follow-up “Oh My God” continues its ascent in the top 20 at both formats.

The collective 88rising and singer BIBI climb from 42-37 with “The Weekend”, their second and first top 40 hits, respectively. TWICE has their first top 40 single with “The Feels”, as the girl group jumps from 41-39 this week. Finally, Latto hits the jackpot and climbs from 44-40 with “Big Energy”. Her first pop hit is already performing well at the Rhythmic (#4) and Urban (#8) radio formats.

This week’s top 50 entries have a feminine touch: chart regular Doja Cat enters at #41 with “Woman”, while format newcomer Emmy Meli lands at #47 with “I Am Woman”. Look for both songs to really take off early next year.
