RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 20, 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. Everybody’s working for the weekend chart update, so let’s hit the list and check out what’s popping at the format:

DUA IT AGAIN: For the second week in a row, Dua Lipa lands at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart with “Levitating”, finishing a bit over 2,000 spins ahead of the song at #2. “Levitating” also leads the chart at the Hot AC format for a second week and remains active in the top ten at AC radio.

Tai Verdes has the only new song in the top 40 with “A-O-K”, leaping from 45-39. It’s his first top 40 hit at the format. The single entered at #30 on the Alternative radio chart last week due to a new music integration program, but falls out of the region on the current update.

A massive six new tunes enter the top 50 at the format, led by Tate McRae and Khalid with “Working” in the #43 spot. The collaboration is one of several impacting singles this coming Tuesday. Latin star Bad Bunny puts his new streaming hit onto the chart at #46, as “Yonaguni” (referring to a Japanese island) continues to build at radio in several major markets. Girl In Red starts at #47 with “Serotonin”, which holds at #7 on the Alternative radio chart. One of 2021’s top breakouts is in at #48 with her new entry: of course, Olivia Rodrigo with “Traitor”. A collaboration from T-Pain and Kehlani is next at #49: “I Like Dat”, which also likes being in the top 30 on the Rhythmic radio chart. Lastly, Area21 comes in at #50 with “La La La”, which returns DJ Martin Garrix to the pop chart. The track briefly made the top 40 at Alternative radio earlier this year.

RECORD REWIND 2020: PGTC Picks, Week Sixteen

Sunday afternoon means it’s time for the Record Rewind, highlighting the top new tracks that you might’ve missed during the work week, all from my favorite small label and independent acts out there. If it’s on the site, it’s something that you need to check out!

Across the PGTC SoundCloud page and my playlists on Spotify, these stuck out as my favorite independent songs of the week…
_____

PICK OF THE WEEK: ONE
PHOEBE RYAN – “Ring” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Third appearance

If Ryan’s name rings a bell, you may remember her time with Columbia Records when she released a number of tracks that did well in the streaming world, including 2015’s “Mine” and 2017’s “Dark Side”. Though she’s now independent, her music is still very nice.

PICK OF THE WEEK: TWO
RAINSFORD – “2 Cents” (Spotify)
Previously on the Rewind: Sixth appearance

This is the sixth appearance to date on the Rewind for the daughter of actress Andie MacDowell and the talent definitely runs in the family. As she continues to carve a path in the electronic and synth-pop world, her stunning new single is worth much more money.

_____

For more great new music, these songs are worth a listen…
ANSON SEABRA – “Emerald Eyes”
CAPPA featuring YUPPYCULT – “Change My Mind”
GIRL IN RED – “Midnight Love”
HANNAH GRACE – “Wasted Love”
