Chart Notes:

  • The new weather report says that Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande‘s global hit “Rain On Me” will be sticking around at the top of my personal chart for some time, as it continues to pour for a second week. Taylor Swift‘s “Cruel Summer” kindly takes the Biggest Mover title, moving up from 37-30 in its second week in the countdown. Songs from Kacey Musgraves and Ava Max are new to my list on this update: the former’s “Oh, What A World” enters at #38, just ahead of its impact at the Triple A format, while the latter’s “Kings & Queens” jumps in at #39, which is looking for some royal Top 40 adds in early July.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (May 5, 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: Marshmello and Halsey‘s new collaboration dominates the adds report with some kindness for the pop radio panel. Let’s add ’em up:

THAT “KIND” OF A WEEK: With an impressive 130 stations on impact, “Be Kind” by Marshmello and Halsey earns the week’s Most Added title at the Top 40 format. The song also scored a top ten rank on yesterday’s report at the Hot AC format. After a #40 debut on last Sunday’s published chart, “Kind” should make a nice move up the survey by the weekend and will likely appear in the top ten again on next Tuesday’s log.

A handful of newer releases also entered the top ten this week, but with add totals that weren’t nearly as substantial. The highest of those, Cyn‘s “Drinks”, managed a fourth place finish with 19 stations on impact. It’s her second track to impact here: “Holy Roller” was the first about a year ago, though it didn’t crack the top 50.

Charting singles from Megan Thee Stallion and Twenty One Pilots return to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap, including data on the new release from Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (ELEVEN)
1. MARSHMELLO & HALSEY, “Be Kind” (Astralwerks/Capitol)
2-T. MEGAN THEE STALLION, “Savage” (1501 Certified Ent./300 Ent.)
2-T. THE SCOTTS, “The Scotts” (Epic)
4. CYN, “Drinks” (Unsub/Caroline)
5. SAINT JHN, “Roses” (Godd Complexx/HITCO)
6. SAM SMITH & DEMI LOVATO, “I’m Ready” (Capitol)
7. TWENTY ONE PILOTS, “Level Of Concern” (Fueled By Ramen/EMG)
8-T. ASHE, “Moral Of The Story” (Mom+Pop/Further.)
8-T. POWFU featuring BEABADOOBEE, “Coffee For Your Head (Death Bed)” (Robots & Humans/Columbia)
10-T. AJR, “Bang!” (S-Curve/Hollywood)
10-T. JAYMES YOUNG, “Happiest Year” (Please Rewind/Atlantic/EMG)

Chart Notes:

  • Dua Lipa earns her fourth #1 single on my chart with “Physical”, which flips and somersaults into the top spot from #2 last week. This is her second chart-topper of 2020, following a four-week run with “Don’t Start Now” from January and February. She could extend that to three in the next week or two at the rate that “Break My Heart” is climbing, which jumps from 8-4 in just its fourth week in the top 40. Starting at #35 as the higher of two debuts is “I Dare You”, the new chart entry for American Idol alum Kelly Clarkson. The track heads for adds at the Hot AC radio format on Monday. Also impacting that day, but at the Triple A format, is Moon Taxi‘s “Hometown Heroes”, which enters at #40.

Chart Notes:

  • Sam Fischer‘s “This City” continues its domination over the city that is my personal chart, earning a fifth week at the top. However, big hits by Dua Lipa, Lady Gaga and The Killers could end his reign as early as next week, as they continue to gain. All three debuts this week are by male newcomers: Jaymes Young is in at #36 with “Happiest Year”, whose first charting song has been fueled by the video app TikTok. A recent top 40 entry in Austria and Germany by Tom Gregory, “Fingertips”, starts at #38. Juno Award winner Donovan Woods also lands on the list at #40 with “Grew Apart”, which impacts at the Triple A radio format later this month. How will they do on my chart? Stay tuned.

NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of June 23, 2017

Oh, baby, it’s a hit.

If you feel like screaming about the weekly New Music Friday update, here’s anotha one to get your vocal cords going. From a hot DJ and producer’s all-star urban collection, to four rockers on a mythical musical adventure, we’ve got ’em all right here, this week’s top releases:

DJ KHALED – Grateful (iTunes)
WE THE BEST RELEASE DATE! (ahem) Sorry, I don’t know what came over me. One could say that DJ and producer Khaled Khaled is capable of yelling any portion of the phone book, and people would probably throw their money at it. Well, you’ll have to wait on a spoken word set from him, but a number of singles from this release have charted across multiple radio formats, including “Shining” (featuring Beyoncé and Jay Z), “I’m The One” (featuring Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance The Rapper and Lil Wayne) and its most recent airplay cut, “Wild Thoughts” (featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller). Streaming-equivalent units on this one could be giant, so stayed to see how high it goes!

IMAGINE DRAGONS – Evolve (iTunes)
If there’s any act releasing this week that has a whole lot of believers, it’s this Las Vegas quartet, who found that their song “Believer” was destined to become a huge Alternative crossover hit. Though some online reaction to other songs has been mixed (I’m looking at you, “Thunder”) thus far, the album should have a healthy sales week, debuting at the top or runner-up position.
