RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (April 15, 2018)

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. Get your taxes filed by Tuesday! Luckily, we always file the current and future radio hits for you on this report, and you don’t even have to pay for it. Let’s do some counting:

ZEDDS ARE BURNING: Still in positive territory in its third week atop the list, Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey‘s “The Middle” continues to slay the Top 40 airwaves, picking up about 280 more spins this week. It also looks good for #1 on the Hot AC chart in a few weeks, coming in at #4 once again, but gaining almost 750 spins in the process. “Meant To Be” from Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line, last week’s #2 song, looks like it may be out of the race for #1, as Camila Cabello‘s “Never Be The Same” bolts 4-2, knocking Rexha and the duo down to #3. (It’s not all bad news, however: “Meant” is the new #1 song on this week’s Hot AC update.) Cabello is aiming for her third solo chart-topper on the Top 40 list outside of the group Fifth Harmony — will she achieve the goal next week, or does “The Middle” strengthen again to secure a fourth week at #1? We’ll find out seven days from now.

FREAKS AND PEAKS: Leading the week’s top 50 debuts at the pop format is the current Rhythmic and Urban radio hit from two performers with a bit of a body swap problem. Lil Dicky‘s “Freaky Friday”, featuring Chris Brown, is new at #46. In April 2016, a collaboration from Lil Dicky and featured rapper Fetty Wap, another viral hit called “$ave Dat Money”, got as high as #49. Making its debut at #48 is a song by an artist who hasn’t been on the pop chart in some time: “All Night” by OutKast member Big Boi. His last credited appearance as a soloist was in 2005 as a featured performer on Brooke Valentine‘s “Girlfight”, which got to #29 that July. Big Boi was last heard on a #1 song at the format in early 2004, when OutKast’s “The Way You Move”, featuring singer Sleepy Brown, spent three weeks there in February. Lastly, at #50, “Nowhere Fast” marks a new charting track for Eminem and featured singer Kehlani. The female soloist is also featured on Charlie Puth‘s “Done For Me”, which soars from 43-31 this week.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 5, 2017)

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. How does the extra hour of sleep feel? Well, I sure thought it was good. However, you better not sleep on any of these songs! They’re all making moves on this week’s pop chart:

MAKING THE RIGHT CALL: After nearly stalling halfway up the Top 40 chart, then miraculously saved by a giant performance on MTV’s Video Music Awards, Logic‘s “1-800-273-8255” leaps into the top spot in its 19th week in the top 40. That powerful song, climbing 3-1, features Alessia Cara and Khalid, the former artist scoring her fourth #1 at the format, with the latter artist, as well as Logic, each scoring their first. Everybody, the third album by the main-credited performer, peaked at #1 on the Billboard 200. At this time, “1-800-273-8255” is also in the top 40 on both the AC and Hot AC charts. (It peaked at #3 on the Rhythmic radio survey.)

For more logical fun and chart runs, you can head back in the Radio & Records archives from 1979 to find that Supertramp‘s “The Logical Song” spent a week at #1 on the pop chart that June, knocking out Donna Summer‘s “Hot Stuff”. (“Logical” also ranked at #1 for a week on the Gavin Report, one week after its frame on R&R, though it missed on the other major trade charts.) It’s certainly too early to tell if “1-800-273-8255” will be able to hold for a second week at the top, with multiple hot tunes on the rise, but it could happen. Stay tuned!

GET IN, LINE: As they rise up the Country survey with “Smooth”, which isn’t a hot Santana featuring Rob Thomas remake, the duo Florida Georgia Line finds themselves with two collaborations on Top 40 radio stations. Of course, they’ve been climbing up the top 40 for a few weeks at this format on “Let Me Go” (credited to Hailee Steinfeld & Alesso featuring the duo & watt) and on this week’s chart, they debut at #43 as the featured act on “Meant To Be” by Bebe Rexha. The singer and songwriter is still looking for her first main-credited top ten at the format, though she’s appeared in the region in a featured slot, so perhaps this new tune will finally be the one to do it.

Adding a touch of sweetness to the chart, “Kiwi” from Harry Styles debuts a few spots below “Meant”, launching at #48 this week. It’s the third radio single to be released off his self-titled #1 album from earlier this year. “Kiwi” hits the top 50 at the same time that another single called “Lemon”, performed by N.E.R.D and Rihanna, is starting up at a small group of stations on the pop panel. If any other selections from the fruit basket of bops make their way onto the format, we’ll make sure to peel, wash and add them to the tasty salad we’re making. Meanwhile, in non-food related music, the final top 50 entry on the new chart belongs to newcomers Alex Aiono and Trinidad Cardona. “Does It Feel Like Falling” falls into place at #50. Cardona also breaks the top 50 on the Rhythmic chart this Sunday with “Jennifer”.
