ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (November 30, 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: 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 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.

Landing at #32 this week, Coldplay and BTS gravitate into the top 40 with “My Universe”. 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.

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.
