RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (February 23, 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. A popular performer who’s known for some “Rules” is ruling the list, as several newer acts check in with debuts. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

“START” YOUR ENGINES: Dua Lipa earns her second #1 song on the Top 40 radio chart with “Don’t Start Now”, moving from 3-1 on the latest update. Of course, her first was the multi-format smash “New Rules”, which spent five weeks at the summit in early 2018. There are five different formats where the song currently appears in the top 30, including its former #1 rank on the Dance list. It also rises to #8 on the Hot AC chart, as it continues to make large gains week-to-week.

The multinational collaboration from DJ Snake, J Balvin and Tyga travels into the top 40 this week after an extended period just outside the region. “Loco Contigo” climbs from 41-37, giving DJ Snake his ninth top 40 single at the format, while J Balvin and Tyga each earn their seventh. Maren Morris moves from 43-39 with her recent #1 tune on the Country radio chart, “The Bones”. This is her second release to enter the region on the pop survey. Noah Cyrus also rises from 42-40 with “July”. It’s her fifth top 40 song.

Two additional songs make the top 50 on this week’s chart, led by Ali Gatie‘s “What If I Told You That I Love You” at #43. Last fall, “It’s You” briefly appeared in the region, peaking at #48. Further down, Monsta X starts at #49 with “You Can’t Hold My Heart”. A collaboration from French Montana, “Who Do U Love?”, got them to #23 on the chart in September and October of last year.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 8, 2019)

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. As we mourn the death of singer and rapper Juice WRLD at the young age of 21, here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

A “GOOD” LIFE: Lizzo‘s “Good As Hell”, with a very small loss in spins, holds at #1 on the Top 40 chart for a third week. The big hit is still in positive territory on both the Rhythmic (up 8-7) and Hot AC (up 11-9) radio charts. It appears that “Water Me”, a single that Lizzo originally released in 2017, will be splashing onto the airwaves at all three formats soon. (It has about 115 spins across the formats this week.)

Harry Styles scores his fourth top 40 hit outside of One Direction with the song that debuts at #33, “Adore You”. The single can be found on his upcoming album Fine Line, due on Friday. (It’s not a cover of the song that Miley Cyrus took to #15 in 2014.) Two other songs from the project, “Lights Up” and “Watermelon Sugar”, are continuing to receive minor airplay from several stations.

Climbing from 43-40, the Black Eyed Peas and J Balvin are new to the region with “Ritmo (Bad Boys For Life)”. It’s the 19th top 40 single at the format for the group and their first since 2011. Additionally, it’s the sixth top 40 hit for Balvin, who’s proving to be a popular collaborator as of late: he’s been featured on minor chart entries for DJ Snake and Major Lazer in the last few weeks.

The only top 50 entry of note is a viral hit that was driven by the video app TikTok: “Yellow Hearts” by Ant Saunders lands at #48 this week. It’s his first chart record and impacts on Tuesday.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (November 12, 2019)

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: Zedd and Kehlani earned the strongest results of any impacting tune on the report, but does their good thing endure at the top? Let’s add ’em up:

ONE “GOOD” EVENING: After a tight race for most of the day, Zedd and Kehlani’s “Good Thing” edged ahead at the end with a nice first week total of 41 stations, just a handful of adds ahead of some established hits: Tones And I‘s “Dance Monkey” (40) and Dua Lipa‘s “Don’t Start Now” (38). “Good” is already racing towards the top 50 and will probably get there in the next few days. A spot lower than Lipa is another impacting record, “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)” by the Black Eyed Peas and J Balvin. It secures that fourth place finish with 35 stations on impact. The collaboration earned an additional 16 adds at the Rhythmic format, picking up the same rank of fourth place.

Elsewhere, MAX and Chromeo tied for fifth place on the log with two dozen stations adding “Checklist” this week. Recent singles from acts like Kesha and Louis Tomlinson are among the titles extending their run in the top ten.

There’s a “Sugar” rush coming next week on behalf of BROCKHAMPTON, who impact at the format for the first time.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. ZEDD & KEHLANI, “Good Thing” (Interscope)
2. TONES AND I, “Dance Monkey” (Bad Batch-Elektra/EMG)
3. DUA LIPA, “Don’t Start Now” (Warner)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (March 17, 2019)

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 may not have an Irish act at the top, but that shouldn’t ruin your St. Patrick’s Day fun. Let’s drink to this pop power and check out what’s popping on the radio this Sunday:

PUT A “RINGS” ON IT: For the second consecutive week, Ariana Grande‘s “7 Rings” is the shiny #1 song at the Top 40 format. It does lose some ground from last week, though it’s less than 1% of its spin total. The song is looking to spend a third week atop the chart, and with the next bulleted entry about 4,500 spins away, chances are that it’ll accomplish that.

This week’s top 40 action is led by “Here With Me”, the first collaboration for Marshmello and CVHRCHES, which starts at #38. It’s the sixth top 40 entry for the mysterious DJ and the first for the trio, who first entered the Alternative list during the fall of 2013 with “The Mother We Share”. Khalid‘s “Talk” bounces up from 42-39, marking his eighth song to reach the region at the format. At #40, moving up six spots from a week ago, “I Can’t Get Enough” by Benny Blanco, Tainy, Selena Gomez and J Balvin is also a top 40 entry this week. This is the third top 40 hit as an artist for Blanco, the first for Tainy, the 16th solo hit for Gomez and the fifth for Balvin. In addition to these titles, “Woke Up Late” by Drax Project and Hailee Steinfeld re-enters the top 40, rising 41-36.

The first collaboration for Lauv and Troye Sivan leads some more activity in the top 50, with “I’m So Tired…” launching at #45. It ranked in second place on last Tuesday’s adds report and should continue to develop at the format in the coming weeks. Debuting at #47, teenager AJ Mitchell makes some moves with his second chart entry, “All My Friends”. It follows “Girls”, which got as high as #38 in December. Lastly, coming in at #50, Alec Benjamin climbs onto the list with “Let Me Down Slowly”, a song that’s been just below the region for some time now. Thanks to about a dozen or stations and some syndicated airplay, it’s now on the chart.

MARSHMELLO featuring CHVRCHES – “Here With Me” (Joytime Collective/Glassnote-Republic)
Album: TBA (2019)
Past T40 History: Marshmello is on a hot streak, but the featured band only had their first top 50 single weeks ago with “Miracle”.
