ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (August 31, 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 gods of the format place Halsey‘s new song on the Top 40 throne. Let’s add ’em up:

Halsey also topped the adds report at the Alternative radio format, but with a different song: “You Asked For This”, also featured on the same album. “I Am” debuted at #36 on the pop chart last weekend.

Climbing into second place, “Need To Know” secured another 41 adds, as Doja Cat just earned her eighth top 40 hit at the format. Walker Hayes also impacted this week with his recent viral hit from TikTok, as “Fancy Like” tied for third place with another 28 stations. The track is just outside the top 20 at the Country radio format.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (August 29, 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. For all the hot and new releases that you need to know, here is what’s popping at the format this week:

“GOOD” TO THE LAST DROP: For its sixth and final week at the top, “Good 4 U” is the #1 song at Top 40 radio once more. While Olivia Rodrigo and her hit will be exiting the summit before the holiday weekend, she is also poised to lead the Hot AC chart with the same tune in the coming weeks.

Moving from 42-33, “Essence” marks the second and first top 40 hits for WizKid and Tems, respectively. A new remix with Justin Bieber is also securing airplay at many pop stations. You can find both versions on the deluxe version of Made In Lagos, the most recent WizKid set. Doja Cat jumps from 41-35 with “Need To Know”, her eighth top 40 hit overall and third from the Planet Her album, which peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart. Meanwhile, Halsey returns to the pop radio chart with “I Am Not A Woman, I’m A God”, debuting at #36. The song becomes the performer’s 16th top 40 entry to date.

“Chasing Stars” chases down a #48 debut, as Alesso, Marshmello and James Bay look to make an astronomical ascent on the list. At #50 this week, newcomer Olivia Penalva is in with “Ex’s”, her first song to chart outside of her native Canada.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 21, 2020)

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. Writing about music and radio charts at the moment is a bit strange, but for petition and donation resources in the fight against racial inequality in our country, please go to this website and do what you can. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

INTENTIONAL CHANGES: Scoring his eighth #1 hit on the Top 40 chart, Justin Bieber lands at the top spot with the Quavo-assisted “Intentions”, up from 3-1. The track comes from his most recent album Changes, a former #1 set on the Billboard 200 chart that also gave us a very quick #11 entry from January in “Yummy”. The collaboration also reaches the top five (up 6-5) at the Hot AC format this week.

After a crazy week last time around, there’s much smaller action to talk about in the lower rungs of the chart. Moving into the top 40 this week, Kelsea Ballerini and Halsey‘s “The Other Girl” leaps from 42-39. The collaboration becomes their second and 15th top 40 hits, respectively. Sneaking into the top 50 ahead of its impact date later this month, “Go Crazy” from Chris Brown and Young Thug launches at #50. The song currently sits in the top ten on both the Rhythmic and Urban charts.

RADIO REPORT: What’s Popping At Top 40 Radio This Week (June 8-9, 2020)

(NOTE: These songs were originally meant to impact last week, but were moved due to Add Board’s temporary closing.) 

GABBY BARRETT featuring CHARLIE PUTH – “I Hope” (Warner)
Album: Goldmine (2020)
Past T40 History: Barrett’s crossover release, in its original solo form, spent a week at #1 on the Country radio chart back in April.

KATY PERRY – “Daisies” (Capitol)
Album: TBA (2020)
Past T40 History: After reaching the top 40 on yesterday’s published update, Perry now has 29 top 40 songs to date at the format.

KELSEA BALLERINI & HALSEY – “The Other Girl” (The Orchard-Capitol)
Album: Kelsea (2020)
Past T40 History: This stalled just outside the top 50 on the Country radio chart, as Ballerini switches to an alternate single there.

OLIVIA O’BRIEN – “Josslyn” (Island/Republic)
EP: The Results Of My Poor Judgement (2020)
Past T40 History: O’Brien was featured on Gnash’s big hit “I Hate U, I Love U”, which spent three weeks at #5 in November 2016.

PINK SWEAT$ – “17” (Atlantic)
Album: TBA (2020)
Past T40 History: Last year, the singer had a minor Rhythmic and Urban AC hit with “Honesty”, which didn’t cross to this format.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 7, 2020)

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. Writing about music and radio charts at the moment is a bit strange, but for petition and donation resources in the fight against racial inequality in our country, please go to this website and do what you can. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

HOW ABOUT CAT: The enduring “Say So” by Doja Cat remains at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the fifth week. “Say” ranks at #6 and #11 on the Rhythmic and Hot AC charts on the same update, respectively. This will likely be its last week on top of the list, as another song is showing its intentions of grabbing the top spot by next weekend.

The current collaboration from the Black Eyed Peas, Ozuna and J. Rey Soul jumps from 45-37, as “Mamacita” earns them their 20th, second and first top 40 hits, respectively. It’s just below the top 40 on this week’s Rhythmic chart at #42. The only other single to enter the region comes from AJR, up from 41-40 with “Bang!”, their fifth top 40 entry on the Top 40 chart. The tune is also in the top five on the Alternative chart.

Another pair of songs are new to the top 50, led by Kelsea Ballerini and Halsey‘s “The Other Girl” at #49. The collaboration rises into the top 40 on the Hot AC chart this week. Natalia Damini and Petey Pablo also squeeze in at #50 with “Pacemaker”. Pablo’s been out of the top 40 here since 2004: he last hit as a featured artist on Ciara‘s “Goodies”, which reached #3 that October.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (May 12, 2020)

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: Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber get stuck at the top of the report by a pretty large margin, so stick around and let’s add ’em up:

THE POP U-NIVERSE: ‘Tis a great time to be charitable! The new charity tune from Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber picked up a super 163 stations on impact, easily making it this week’s Most Added song at the format. “Stuck With U” also topped the Hot AC report yesterday with another 65 adds there and claimed a third place finish at the Rhythmic format, checking in with 20 stations.

No additional impacting tracks landed in the top five, but Lil Mosey‘s “Blueberry Faygo”, which heads for adds next Tuesday, tied for third place with 23 new stations this week. Another track that’s bound to hold up a week from today is the new single by Harry Styles, as “Watermelon Sugar” landed in fifth with another 18 adds this week. Gee, this Top 40 fruit salad is tasty so far, but we do need some grapes and mangos and pineapples to fill it out, you know? Get to work, songwriters!

Charting singles from Marshmello & Halsey and Megan Thee Stallion return to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap, including data on new singles from the Jonas Brothers and Madison Beer.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. ARIANA GRANDE & JUSTIN BIEBER, “Stuck With U” (Def Jam/Republic)
2. MARSHMELLO & HALSEY, “Be Kind” (Astralwerks/Capitol)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (May 5, 2020)

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: Marshmello and Halsey‘s new collaboration dominates the adds report with some kindness for the pop radio panel. Let’s add ’em up:

THAT “KIND” OF A WEEK: With an impressive 130 stations on impact, “Be Kind” by Marshmello and Halsey earns the week’s Most Added title at the Top 40 format. The song also scored a top ten rank on yesterday’s report at the Hot AC format. After a #40 debut on last Sunday’s published chart, “Kind” should make a nice move up the survey by the weekend and will likely appear in the top ten again on next Tuesday’s log.

A handful of newer releases also entered the top ten this week, but with add totals that weren’t nearly as substantial. The highest of those, Cyn‘s “Drinks”, managed a fourth place finish with 19 stations on impact. It’s her second track to impact here: “Holy Roller” was the first about a year ago, though it didn’t crack the top 50.

Charting singles from Megan Thee Stallion and Twenty One Pilots return to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap, including data on the new release from Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (ELEVEN)
1. MARSHMELLO & HALSEY, “Be Kind” (Astralwerks/Capitol)
2-T. MEGAN THEE STALLION, “Savage” (1501 Certified Ent./300 Ent.)

4. CYN, “Drinks” (Unsub/Caroline)
5. SAINT JHN, “Roses” (Godd Complexx/HITCO)
6. SAM SMITH & DEMI LOVATO, “I’m Ready” (Capitol)
7. TWENTY ONE PILOTS, “Level Of Concern” (Fueled By Ramen/EMG)
