RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (January 9, 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. From L.A. to Peru, these songs are moving at the pop format:

MAXIMIZING “ME” TIME: 2022 is starting off well for superstar Adele, as she continues at #1 on the Top 40 chart for a sixth week with “Easy On Me”. It remains more than 1,700 spins ahead of the song at #2.

Taken from his new album Dawn FM, The Weeknd scores his 23rd top 40 hit at the format with “Sacrifice”, entering at #37 this week. This entry is unrelated to the Bebe Rexha song of the same name that charted last spring or the Elton John song interpolated in his current hit “Cold Heart”, which holds at #9 on the list. Up from 43-39, the late Juice WRLD and Justin Bieber are in with “Wandered To LA”, giving the two men their fourth and 38th top 40 singles, respectively. It’s included on the posthumous album Fighting Demons, which peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200 last month.

Three singles appear in the top 50 for the first time this week: “When I’m Gone” is the highest of the new entries, as Alesso and Katy Perry start at #45. ALYA is at #46 with “Pleasure Is Mine”, while Fireboy DML brings some heat at #49 with the Ed Sheeran-assisted “Peru”.
