CURIOSITY FILLED THE CAT: The album Planet Her is full of big hits and another has reached the summit: “Need To Know” rises from 3-1 on the Top 40 radio list for Doja Cat, the second chart-topper from her current era and third historically.

Back in the top 40 for the first time since the summer of 2019, The Chainsmokers start at #30 with “High”, their 13th top 40 entry to date. From her forthcoming album Love Sux, Avril Lavigne leaps from 43-38 with the Blackbear-assisted “Love It When You Hate Me”.

With their current #2 hit on the Alternative radio chart, Imagine Dragons land at #44 on the chart with “Enemy”, the theme song from the Netflix series Arcane: League Of Legends. Two versions of “Enemy” are receiving airplay: one by the quartet itself and other featuring rapper JID. Coming off a recent viral trend on TikTok, “Every Summertime” enters at #46 for newcomer NIKI. The track was originally featured on the soundtrack to Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings last year. The film hits continue at #47 this week with the debut of Encanto‘s “We Don’t Talk About Bruno”, sung by the cast of the animated movie.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 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. For all the top titles that keep the music industry afloat, here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

BABY’S FIRST WEEK: After sitting it out at #2 for the past four weeks, “Industry Baby” becomes the new #1 song at the Top 40 format. It marks the second chart-topper this year for Lil Nas X and the first for Jack Harlow. The Columbia label now claims the top three spots on the chart: The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber drop from 1-2 with “Stay” after ten weeks at the summit, while Adele‘s “Easy On Me” blasts from 8-3.

Format newcomer Oliver Tree branches out and soars from 44-36 with “Life Goes On”. It’s his first hit to rank on the Top 40 chart, but he’s already seen some action for a couple of past releases on the Alternative chart. Up from 42-38, “Faking Love” pairs Anitta and Saweetie for their second and fifth top 40 hits at the format, respectively. Finally, Imagine Dragons return to the Top 40 chart with “Follow You”, rising from 43-40. It’s their 11th entry to date and first since the spring of 2019.

The only new tune in the top 50 is one that earned most of its airplay on Friday: “Message In A Bottle”, entering at #46 for Taylor Swift. It’s included on Red (Taylor’s Version), a re-recorded release of her 2012 album, which will debut atop the Billboard 200 chart later this month.
