ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (October 19, 2021)

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: the easiest winner of the year is, of course, Adele. Let’s add ’em up:

“EASY” DOES IT: As expected, it was a huge week for Adele at the Top 40 format with “Easy On Me”. It’s now the eighth title in the plays-per-week era to clear the entire panel in one week, scoring all 179 adds on impact. In fact, across the United States and Canada, the track got 528 adds in total when combining all formats. The lead single from 30 debuted at #22 on the Top 40 chart last weekend.

In second place, Anitta picked up 36 adds for the Saweetie-assisted “Faking Love”. The collaboration also performed well at the Rhythmic format, landing in the same runner-up position with another 33 stations there. The single marks the follow-up to “Girl From Rio”, which got as high as #22 the pop chart for Anitta this past July.

Rounding out the top three, Imagine Dragons finished in third place with “Follow You”. It impacted and earned 25 new stations, bringing its historic total to 42. The song spent five nonconsecutive weeks at #1 at the Alternative format between April and July.

Charting singles from Coldplay, Jesy Nelson and The Anxiety returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (October 17, 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. We have some easy selections for singles and stats, so let’s see what’s popping at the format this week:

KID ‘N PLAYS: Hovering above 19,600 plays once again this week, “Stay” spends a seventh week at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart. The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber now have the longest-running #1 song of 2021 at the pop format and that run will likely extend another week or two.

Superstar Adele soars onto the chart way up at #22 with “Easy On Me”, the lead single from her forthcoming album 30. It’s her tenth top 40 entry to date and simultaneously reaches the top 40 at four additional formats: AC, Hot AC, R&B (formerly Urban AC) and Triple A. Up from 42-31, GIVĒON scores his third top 40 song at the pop format with “For Tonight”. Moving from 41-37, “Hurricane” is the 23rd top 40 hit for Kanye West, the 20th for The Weeknd and the second for Lil Baby. The track can be found on West’s recent #1 album Donda. Finally, at #38, Kacey Musgraves achieves her first top 40 song on the Top 40 airwaves with “Justified”, which moves up from #43 last week.

Nigerian newcomer CKay debuts at #45 with his viral hit “Love Nwantiti (Ah Ah Ah)”, which is being fueled by a popular dance challenge on TikTok. Former Little Mix member Jesy Nelson comes in at #46 with the Nicki Minaj-assisted “Boyz”, which just earned a top five entry on the national survey in the United Kingdom. Next, TWICE feels their way into the #47 spot with “The Feels”, while “Chosen” is the Top 40 format’s choice at #48 for Blxst, Ty Dolla $ign and Tyga, a current top ten single on the Rhythmic and Urban radio charts.

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. Tonight is definitely a winner at the pop format, so it’s time to check out what’s popping at the format this week:

The collaboration is the second chart single from Coldplay’s forthcoming album Music Of The Spheres and their 14th overall. Additionally, BTS earns their ninth top 40 song to date. Climbing from 41-39 on the list, “Edamame” is not only a healthy hit title, but the first top 40 entry for both Bbno$ and Rich Brian at the format. Up from 43-40, Farruko also achieves his first top 40 song with the viral hit “Pepas”, the name of a popular jam-filled cookie.

In the top 50, Monsta X has a monster debut at #43 with “One Day”, as the group hopes to earn their third top 40 single later this month. “I Feel Good” is in at #46, as the current collaboration from Pitbull, Anthony Watts and DJWS continues to pick up new airplay. Shouse is next in line at #47 with “Love Tonight”, with the duo riding a wave of TikTok support for their track that was originally released back in 2017. The latest singles from Chlöe and GIVĒON are also new to the survey, with the former’s “Have Mercy” debuting at #48 and the latter’s “For Tonight” starting at #49.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (April 18, 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. Some golden goods are shining on the survey, so here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

TATE AT THE PLATE: As baseball begins to dominate the TV, Tate McRae hits a home run with “You Broke Me First”, which climbs 4-1. The enduring hit scores the top spot after 28 innings… uh, rather, weeks on the chart, making it the slowest run to the top of the pop chart by a female artist. “You” finished only 92 spins ahead of The Weeknd‘s “Save Your Tears”, which advances from 3-2 and will inevitably park at the summit soon.

Singer GIVĒON, who you can find in a featured spot on Justin Bieber‘s “Peaches”, lifts from 41-38 with “Heartbreak Anniversary”. It’s his second top 40 hit to date, which comes as “Peaches” leaps from 13-11. Meanwhile, Kali Uchis also climbs from 44-39 on this week’s list with “Telepatía”, which is her first top 40 hit. It’s one of the many recent songs on the survey to move from a breakout on TikTok to the pop chart.

Four new releases check into the top 50 this week, led by Demi Lovato and Ariana Grande at #44 with “Met Him Last Night”. Lovato has now landed in the top 50 twice in April, as “Dancing With The Devil” (now replaced with “Met”) entered and peaked at #40 two weeks ago. It also continues Grande’s hot streak at the format, as she looks to hold four simultaneous positions in the top 40 next week. A bit further down the list, Sofia Carson is in at #46 with “Fool’s Gold”, with newcomer Annika Wells gliding in at #49 with “Sucks Being Sober”. The last of the new songs in the top 50 is by a labelmate of Wells: AJ Mitchell, who gets going with “Stop” in the #50 spot.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 6, 2021)

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: Olivia Rodrigo is the lead driver among the records racing for adds. Let’s add ’em up:

ENJOY THE “VU”: With the follow-up to the recent chart-topper “Driver’s License”, which spent five weeks at #1, Olivia Rodrigo scored a very nice 121 adds on impact for “Déjà Vu”. The tune snuck into the top 40 last weekend and should see some good movement in the coming days. It tied for eighth place at the Hot AC format yesterday, which appeared due to a handful of stations that reported early.

Lil Nas X secured 49 adds during the session for “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)”, good for the runner-up spot. The single and its music video have been the subject of much online conversation recently, which helped propel it to a #1 debut on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Demi Lovato also entered the top five with the Ariana Grande-assisted “Met Him Last Night”, scoring 20 adds and a fifth place finish. A week ago, Lovato’s “Dancing With The Devil” impacted here with a total of 44 stations during its first week. Given the new single swap, we’ll see what occurs on the airplay chart in the coming weeks.

Charting singles from Addison Rae, Justin Bieber and Masked Wolf returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next week for another action-packed adds session.
