ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 5, 2022)

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: Harry Styles nearly closed the panel in stylish fashion. Let’s add ’em up:

“WAS” WINS: Harry’s House is in the house at the Top 40 format, as the first single from the forthcoming Harry Styles album had a huge day on the adds report with 174 stations reporting on impact. The robust total is just three adds shy of clearing the panel in one week, a very impressive feat. At the Hot AC format, the song was added at 81 of the 94 stations on the panel yesterday. On the pop chart, the song started at #26 on last weekend’s published update, becoming the seventh solo chart entry for Styles to date.

Shawn Mendes also had a fairly strong first week for “When You’re Gone”, which earned 129 stations and a second-place finish. The track took the runner-up position at the Hot AC format yesterday with 51 adds there. It recently became his 13th top 40 hit to date.

Charting singles from Doja Cat, Em Beihold and Pharrell Williams also returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

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

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (April 3, 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’s the latest survey, just as it was

“WOMAN” OF THE WEEK: Earning her third #1 hit at the format from the Planet Her album, Doja Cat rises from 2-1 with “Woman”. It topped last week’s published update at the Rhythmic radio format.

Launching at #26, Harry Styles secures his seventh top 40 hit outside of One Direction with “As It Was”. It’s the first track to be released from his forthcoming album Harry’s House, due May 20. Next, The Weeknd is moving quickly with “Out Of Time”, jumping from 50-36. It does has enough time to become his 24th top 40 hit to date. Shawn Mendes is back with “When You’re Gone”, which bows at #37. It marks his 13th top 40 entry. Finally, newcomer JNR Choi rises from 43-40 with TikTok-fueled “To The Moon”. The entry samples “Talking To The Moon”, a Sam Tompkins cover of a popular Bruno Mars album cut that was never released as a single.

Originally from 2013’s Despicable Me 2 and now all over TikTok, “Just A Cloud Away” starts at #45 for Pharrell Williams. The soundtrack to that movie also contains “Happy”, which spent three weeks at #1 during the spring of 2014. Newcomer BoyWithUke also debuts with the Blackbear-assisted “IDGAF”, which bows at #50. It’s taken from the forthcoming album Serotonin Dreams, due April 15.

Adam’s Top 100 of 2021: The Complete List

2021: it was the rollercoaster ride that we didn’t need after the year that was 2020. There were plenty of strange events that occurred in the last twelve months, but here’s one that I think we can celebrate for the time being. Yes, my Top 100 of 2021 is now available below.

When it came to the music on my personal chart, 2021 was a particularly good year for good song titles: six of them rank in the top 100, including “Damn It Feels Good To Be Me”, “Good 4 U” and “We’re Good”. We also felt the force of three powerful pop releases: “Higher Power”, “Solar Power” and “Your Power”. Of course, there was a lot of love on the charts as well, including singles like “Can You Handle My Love??”, “Love Again”, “Talk About Love” and more. From “Cloudy Day” to “Remember That Night?” and “Drivers License” to “Last Train Home”, there was much to discover and enjoy on my record player, the radio, streaming platforms and, of course, TikTok.

So, after crunching all the numbers up, here are the top 100 songs based on my weekly personal chart:

The 2021 chart year encompasses a period of 52 weekly surveys from the chart dated December 6, 2020 to the chart dated November 28, 2021. Peaks noted for each entry reflect the highest position reached by the final list of this period. For any ties in points, an entry with the highest peak is listed first, and further ties are broken by the weeks at a song’s peak position and the amount of time charted in the top 40. 162 entries had at least one point qualify towards the year-end chart, a small decrease from the 166 that did so in 2020. A total of 14 titles reached the #1 spot for at least one week this year, up one from the 13 that achieved the feat in 2020.
