RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (February 6, 2022)

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. Let’s mash things up and get into this week’s update:

SAVE THE BEST FOR GLASS: Back up a spot, “Heat Waves” returns to lead the Top 40 radio chart for a second nonconsecutive week, as Glass Animals and their enduring song aim to reach the top of the Hot AC radio chart next week.

This week, Imagine Dragons earn their 12th top 40 hit at the format with “Enemy”, the theme song from the Netflix series Arcane: League Of Legends. It advances from 44-34 on the chart. The song also scores its first week at #1 at Alternative radio. Lifting from 42-37, Tiësto and Ava Max both pick up their fifth top 40 entries with “The Motto”, a recent chart-topper at the Dance format. Lastly, ALTÉGO leap from 43-39 with “Toxic Pony”, a Britney Spears and Ginuwine mashup that saw some success on TikTok recently. It’s the first top 40 entry for the duo, the 37th for Spears and the sixth for Ginuwine, who last charted at the format in the fall of 2003.

Brazilian star Anitta steps in at #43 with “Boys Don’t Cry”, while Chris Brown starts at #47 with “Iffy”, which currently ranks in the top 20 at both Rhythmic and Urban radio.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (January 23, 2022)

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. Here come this week’s party Animals:

THE “HEAT” IS ON: In its 29th nonconsecutive week in the top 40, “Heat Waves” rises from 2-1 on the Top 40 survey, as Glass Animals score their first #1 song at the format. Their hit spent three weeks at #1 on the Alternative radio chart in March of last year.

Singer and songwriter Charlie Puth lights up the #30 spot with his new release titled “Light Switch”. The debut marks his 12th top 40 hit to date. The Walters also enter the top 40 this week with “I Love You So”, landing at #39. Originally released back in 2014, the tune went viral on TikTok last fall and continues to grow.

This week’s top new entry in the top 50 is a collaboration that teams Avril Lavigne and Blackbear: “Love It When You Hate Me” has more love than hate from the Top 40 panel, as it starts at #43. The track is also just below the top 40 at the Hot AC format. Newcomers Daisy The Great spin their way into the #46 position with the AJR-assisted “Record Player”, a current top ten hit on the Alternative chart. The original version of the tune (without AJR) had a fairly successful run on TikTok during the fall of 2019. Producers ALTÉGO are also new to the list at #47 with “Toxic Pony”, their mashup of two chart classics: “Toxic” spent four weeks at #1 for Britney Spears during the spring of 2004, but “Pony” only got as high as #32 for Ginuwine in early 1997. (It hit the top five on the Rhythmic and Urban charts in late 1996.) Finally, Sena Kana and Poo Bear sneak in at #49 with “Undisputed”.

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.
