ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 9, 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: two weeks of adds are being reported, so there’s plenty of action in the top ten. Which rockstar made it to the top? Let’s add ’em up:

I WANNA BE RICCH: As expected, it was super busy today at the Top 40 format, as Add Board was closed last week. In the lead on this week’s adds report is the DaBaby and Roddy Ricch collaboration “Rockstar”, which was just revealed as the new #1 song on the Hot 100 yesterday. It scored 66 stations during the session.

Impacting tracks from Katy Perry and Gabby Barrett also earned spots in the top ten: the former’s “Daisies” landed 44 stations and a fifth place finish, while the latter’s “I Hope” settled into sixth place with just one station fewer.

Charting singles from Doja Cat, Harry Styles and Lil Mosey returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap, featuring tunes from The Killers, Tones And I (#8 this week) and more.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 24, 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. Sure, it’s a holiday weekend, but the Top 40 chart is definitely not taking a holiday when it comes to fast action. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

CURIOSITY THRILLED THE CAT: For the third consecutive week, Doja Cat‘s “Say So” remains at #1 on the Top 40 chart. It’s likely to spend a fourth week at the summit, especially given the lack of competition currently in the top five. However, that’s not all for radio’s top feline this week, but you’ll have to wait and see what song of hers is meowing at the bottom of the list as you read on:

This is the most active week for top 40 entries in quite some time, led mostly by larger names and a couple of emerging ones. “X” by the Jonas Brothers is the highest of five tunes to make the jump, up from 45-26 to become the trio’s 12th top 40 hit at the format. Harry Styles picks up his fifth solo entry in the region with “Watermelon Sugar”, which flows from 42-28. This one follows “Adore You”, which spent a week at the top last month. The highly-anticipated collaboration from Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande is new at #38: “Rain On Me” showers the two women with their 21st and 22nd top 40 hits at the format, respectively. Grande is also at #18 with the Justin Bieber collaboration “Stuck With U”, which moves up from #22 last week. Jackson Wang leaps from 43-39 with “100 Ways”, his second top 40 entry of the year and the first since record label 88rising’s collaboration “Walking”, which got as high as #37 in January. Lastly, Alec Benjamin scores his first top 40 song with “Oh My God”, rising from 44-40.

Into the top 50, Katy Perry sprouts at #43 with “Daisies”, which is already in the top 20 on the Hot AC chart. As mentioned above, Doja Cat claws back onto the Top 40 chart with the Gucci Mane-assisted “Like That”, which climbs aboard at #45. One spot lower, the DaBaby and Roddy Ricch collaboration “Rockstar” starts strumming and rocks it out at #46. Both this single and “Like That” are well into the top 40 on the Rhythmic chart with current peaks of #13 and #23, respectively. Finally, Cyn reaches the top 50 with her first ever chart entry, “Drinks”. Landing at #49, the song is taken from the soundtrack to Promising Young Woman.

Chart Notes:

  • Dua Lipa‘s “Break My Heart” enjoys this holiday weekend atop my personal chart, easily earning a fifth week at the summit and tying for her longest-running #1 song to date. Last week’s top debut from Katy Perry, “Daisies”, climbs from 32-25 to take the Biggest Mover title. There’s a set of two new entries on the countdown, which also hold the top two spots on my Friday Faves new releases list for the week: Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande‘s “Rain On Me” is in the forecast at #33, while Carly Rae Jepsen‘s “This Love Isn’t Crazy” has a not-so-crazy debut at #36.

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.

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!

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 10, 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. Ready for some more quarantunes and how they’re doing on the radio? Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

YEAR OF THE CAT: After stalling at #33 with “Juicy” in January, Doja Cat earns her first #1 at the Top 40 format with the song “Say So”, moving from 3-1 this week. Last month, it topped the Rhythmic radio chart. The song is also expected to be in the running for the #1 spot on tomorrow’s Billboard Hot 100 update, thanks in part to several versions of a new remix featuring Nicki Minaj.

The week’s lone top 40 entry is a huge one: Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber‘s “Stuck With U”, a new charity collaboration that shuffles in at #28. It’s the 21st top 40 hit for Grande and the 29th for Bieber, who are both managed by Scooter Braun’s SB Projects. (Braun is listed as a co-writer on the song.) The money from roughly 60% of each digital single sold will be headed towards the First Responders Children’s Foundation.

AJR and Harry Styles enter the top 50 at the format this week: the band at #47 with “Bang!” and Styles at #49 with “Watermelon Sugar”. The former entry recently hit the top five on the Alternative radio chart, while the latter impacts at both the Hot AC and Top 40 formats next week. The latter is also the follow-up to “Adore You”, which went to #1 on both charts earlier this year.
