RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (February 14, 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. Beyond the chocolates and flowers, it’s time to fall in love with the weekly pop radio survey for a recap of what’s popping at the format:

CAN I GET YOUR NUMBER: Ariana Grande just can’t keep away from the top spot! After a seven-week run at the top, her hit “Positions” fell to #3 last week, leaving Justin Bieber and Benny Blanco‘s “Lonely” to reach the summit. Now, Grande is back at the top with “34+35” and returns to the runner-up position with her former #1 smash. How will she add to her huge chart takeover? Stay tuned.

Dua Lipa scores this week’s Highest Debut in the countdown at #34 with “We’re Good”, becoming her 13th top 40 entry. It’s a part of a recent reissue of her 2020 album Future Nostalgia, dubbed the Moonlight Edition. The other three releases entering the region on this update are all from newcomers: Yung Gravy leaps up from 41-37 with “Oops!”, Fousheé lifts from 42-39 with “Deep End” and the band Glass Animals debuts at #40 with “Heat Waves”, a current top five hit on the Alternative radio chart.

The big action continues in the top 50 with another five debuts this week. The highest of them, which lands at #42, is from Meduza and Dermot Kennedy with their collaboration called “Paradise”. To date, the single has already peaked in the top ten or 20 across Europe and Australasia. Cardi B debuts at #44 with “Up”, which is certainly where it’s headed on the survey, while Daya charts for the first time in three years with “Bad Girl” at #45. Further down, JayQ The Legend begins at #49 with “It Could Be You” and Fat Joe enters the top 50 for the first time since 2016 with the DJ Khaled and Amorphous-assisted “Sunshine (The Light)” at #50.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (January 10, 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. If you’re craving a lil bit of pop radio action, here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

A CLEAR POSITION: Easily earning a fourth week at #1, Ariana Grande leads the Top 40 chart once again with “Positions”. At the Rhythmic and Hot AC formats, the song is still gaining and appears at #11 and #14, respectively.

Spain’s HVME has this week’s only new song in the top 40 with “Goosebumps”, a flip of a Travis Scott song, which leaps from 42-38. It’s his first top 40 hit.

In the top 50, three new entries are led by Australian performer The Kid LAROI, who debuts at #43 with “Without You”. The song is the follow-up to “So Done”, which moves up to #27 on the list. Landing at #44, Nelly and Florida Georgia Line are in with “Lil Bit”. Of course, the duo worked with Nelly on the remix of their crossover hit “Cruise”, which spent four nonconsecutive weeks at #7 in June and July 2013. The only other entry of note is Fousheé‘s “Deep End”, a recent viral tune that comes in at #50.
