Welcome to Add Lib, your Tuesday report on POP! Goes The Charts that’s mad about CHR/Top 40 adds, based on the station data provided by Mediabase 24/7 and Add Board. This week: Adele opens her bottle of bops for a refreshing record at the top. Let’s add ’em up:
“OH” SAY, CAN YOU STREAM: With her follow-up to “Easy On Me”, superstar Adele took the top spot on the adds report with “Oh My God”, securing 105 stations at the Top 40 format this week. The song ranked at #38 on the chart last weekend, becoming her 11th top 40 hit to date. Her recent album 30 is expected to hold atop the Billboard 200 chart for a second week.
Back in the runner-up spot, Taylor Swift picked up another 43 stations for “Message In A Bottle” this week. The single from Red (Taylor’s Version) has been joined by a handful of other songs from the album at the format, including a re-recording of “All Too Well”, which led the Billboard Hot 100 earlier this month.
A week ahead of impact, “Abcdefu” scored 35 new stations at the format, giving newcomer GAYLE her first top five appearance on the adds report in the #3 position. The recent viral hit has become a global streaming smash and should do well at several radio formats into 2022.
Charting singles from ACRAZE, Benson Boone and Billie Eilish returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.
We’ll see you next week for another action-packed adds session.
