RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (March 20, 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. Don’t lose sight of these emerging records…

X-TRA TIME: Five weeks ago, Lil Nas X led the Top 40 radio chart with “That’s What I Want”, his third consecutive #1 hit from the album Montero. Now, it returns to the top for a second nonconsecutive week. All three cuts have now spent a combined total of five weeks at the top spot since July of last year.

In the top 40, “Don’t Forget My Love” jumps from 43-37 for Diplo and Miguel, taken from the former’s self-titled release. It’s the ninth solo credit for Diplo in the top 40, while Miguel earns his sixth entry into the region. Mimi Webb heats up from 42-38 with “House On Fire”, the second top 40 entry for the singer in under a year. It recently reached the top ten in both the U.K. and Ireland. Iann Dior climbs from 44-39 with “Let You”, also marking his second top 40 hit at the format. Lastly, Jena Rose lifts from 41-40 with “Checkmate”, her first top 40 song.

From HBO’s Euphoria, “I’m Tired” is in at #41 on the chart, as Labrinth and Zendaya enter with their first collaboration together. The duo Lawrence debuts at #44 with “Don’t Lose Sight”, which was recently heard in a Microsoft commercial. Ylona Garcia entertains the format at #46 with “Entertain Me”, while Yung Bleu and Kehlani decorate with #48 spot with “Beautiful Lies”, a recent #1 single on the Rhythmic radio chart.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 20, 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. This week’s survey is looking holly and jolly with plenty of chart cheer, including a new tune at the top. Here’s what’s under the musical mistletoe at the format this week:

POSITIONED AT NUMBER ONE: The end of the year brings a new #1 song at the Top 40 format, as Ariana Grande takes the top spot with “Positions”, up 3-1. The song also ranks at #12 and #14 on the Rhythmic and Hot AC radio charts, respectively.

After debuting at #41 last week, “Willow” becomes the 33rd top 40 single at the format for Taylor Swift this week, which moves up to #28 on the list. Her new album Evermore just entered at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart on the most recent update. A little further down the chart, MAX earns his fifth top 40 song to date with “Blueberry Eyes”, rising from 43-39. The tune also marks the first solo top 40 entry for SUGA of the septet BTS. Finally, up from 42-40, Julia Michaels sneaks in with “Lie Like This”, her eighth top 40 hit here.

Four songs are new to the top 50 this week due to a purge of recent lower-charting titles, led by the Black Eyed Peas and Shakira at #42 with “Girl Like Me”. It’s their first charting single together. After reaching the top in a featured spot on 24KGoldn‘s “Mood”, Iann Dior checks in at #47 with his solo release “Holding On”. BTS jumps in at #48 with “Life Goes On”, which recently debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart due to strong sales numbers. Finally, Chung Ha and R3HAB land at #50 with “Dream Of You”.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 13, 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. This weekend, menorahs are burning bright across the nation and so is the pop radio chart, which lights up with new tunes. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

WHO’S BEHIND THE DIOR: 24KGoldn and Iann Dior hold at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the eighth week with “Mood”. The collaboration is now the longest-running #1 song of the year at the pop format. With two more chart weeks during 2020 for it to expand on that total, we’ll see if it goes any further soon.

Thanks to several songs headed to recurrent status, there’s quite a bit of action in the lower regions of the chart this week. Leading a pack of four new titles in the top 40, All Time Low and Blackbear leap from 46-33 with “Monsters”. It’s the first top 40 single for the band and the seventh for Blackbear, who was certainly on a hot streak in 2020. The tune holds at #1 on the Alternative chart this week, marking its 13th nonconsecutive week at the summit. Landing at #38 is “Body”, the third top 40 hit on the pop list for Megan Thee Stallion. It’s now in the top 20 on both the Rhythmic and Urban charts. Bad Bunny hops along and collects his third top 40 hit with “Dàkiti”, rising from 45-39. It’s the first top 40 single for his collaborator Jhay Cortez. Finally, jumping from 50-40 on the chart, Sigala and James Arthur score their first and second top 40 hits, respectively, with “Lasting Lover”. It remains at #1 on the Dance list for a third week in a row.

After two days of airplay, Taylor Swift‘s “Willow” bows at #41. It’s the first charting song from her new album Evermore. From the Alternative chart, two recent top five songs inquisitively reach the Top 40 list this week: Wallows with “Are You Bored Yet?” at #47 and Dayglow with “Can I Call You Tonight?” at #49. Finally, at #50, newcomer HVME sneaks into the region with “Goosebumps”, a flip of a Travis Scott song from 2016 that did not previously chart here, but hit #1 at the Rhythmic format in the spring of 2017.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 6, 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. With the holiday freeze approaching, slower weeks are ahead, but not before some decent December action on the charts. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

SEVEN GOLDN WEEKS: 24KGoldn and Iann Dior stay at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the seventh consecutive week with “Mood”, tying for the longest run of the year so far along with top titles from Harry Styles and The Weeknd. “Mood” is still more than 1,600 spins ahead of the song in the runner-up position.

Two newcomers reach the top 40 with their first chart singles: The Kid LAROI soars from 44-39 with “So Done”, while Ashnikko is up from 42-40 with “Daisy”. The former is currently based in Australia, while the latter is in England (but she was born and raised in North Carolina.)

Thanks to a newly-released remix that features Demi Lovato, who is not currently credited on Mediabase, the current #1 hit on the Alternative chart by All Time Low and Blackbear enters at #46. “Monsters” is the third song by the band to reach the top 50 here since their debut in 2011. Following the collaborative trend, David Guetta and Sia are also new at #48 with “Let’s Love”, as Sigala and James Arthur come in at #50 with “Lasting Lover”.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 29, 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. We hope you’re enjoying your leftovers, but on the pop airwaves, there’s some fresh data to be consumed. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

HOLDIN’ FOR GOLDN: 24KGoldn and Iann Dior are at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the sixth week in a row with “Mood”. The former #1 song at the Rhythmic format drops from 3-4 there, while it holds at #8 on the Alternative chart. On the pop survey, it remains more than 2,000 spins ahead of the song at #2, so it could pull off a seventh week at the summit if it holds together.

Last week’s pair of top 50 entries are now flying into the top 40 here: Miley Cyrus and Dua Lipa leap from 49-38 with “Prisoner”. It earns the two women their 14th and 12th top 40 hits, respectively. The Weeknd‘s “Save Your Tears” is also looking strong with a 50-39 jump this week, becoming his 17th top 40 entry to date. Despite the lack of Grammy love, his enduring song “Blinding Lights” is steady at #9 in its 49th week on the chart. Will the former chart-topper hit 50 weeks before it’s purged from the list? Stay tuned.

Bad Bunny and Jhay Cortez land at #48 on the chart with their streaming hit “Dàkiti”, which has already charted well in parts of Latin and South America. Actress/singer Veronika is in at #50 with “So Many Lies”, which enters largely due to overnight airplay.

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. There are monsters on the loose… well, that is, a few monster records are out there and landing on the chart. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

20K FOR 24K: 24KGoldn and Iann Dior remain at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the fifth week in a row with “Mood”. At the same time, it eclipses 20,000 spins in a week, becoming the first song to officially reach that total on a published update.

Four singles are new to the top 40 on this week’s chart. The highest of them comes from Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber, who race in at #37 with “Monster”. It’s the 11th top 40 song for Mendes and the 32nd for Bieber, both of whom are currently on the chart with other records from their respective forthcoming albums. Lil Nas X leaps from 46-38 with “Holiday”, his third top 40 hit at the format. Lifting from 41-39, Joji picks up his second top 40 tune and first on his own with “Your Man”. Finally, “Hawái” breezes into the top 40 for Maluma and The Weeknd, moving from 44-40. It’s their first and 16th top 40 entries at the format, respectively.

After a release on Thursday night, Miley Cyrus and Dua Lipa land at #49 with “Prisoner”. Meanwhile, “Hawái” isn’t the only tune on the rise for The Weeknd this week, as his solo release “Save Your Tears” bounces in at #50.
