Passenger last charted at #1 in August 2016 with “Somebody’s Love”, but is best known for “Let Her Go”, which became my top song of 2013 with a 12-week reign at the summit. The week’s new entries are by Mimi Webb and Tom Grennan: “Good Without” and “Little Bit Of Love” debut at #37 and #38, respectively. Both are current top 20 singles in the United Kingdom, with the latter appearing in the top ten.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (March 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. As we wait and see who will be taking home some GRAMMY statues tonight, here’s a look at what’s popping at the format this week:

LICENSE RENEWAL: For the third week in a row, Olivia Rodrigo remains at the top spot on the pop radio chart with “Driver’s License”. While still in positive territory, the big hit was up a mere 45 spins vs. last week. That being said, it’s more than 2,600 spins ahead of the song at #2, so it’ll still be hanging around at the top for a fourth week next Sunday.

The new duo of Silk Sonic scores this week’s top entry in the top 40 with “Leave The Door Open”, making a giant move from 43-25 on the list. Their first charting title also marks the 22nd and first entries in the region individually for Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, respectively. Climbing from 41-38, G-Eazy and Chris Brown provide the top 40 with a new hit called, well, “Provide”. This is the 11th time in the top 40 for G-Eazy and the 36th for Brown. Jessia is also rising on the pop list with “I’m Not Pretty”. The track takes a nice jump from 44-39 this week, marking her first trip into the region.

In the top 50, Bebe Rexha leads a set of four debuts at #44 with “Sacrifice”, followed by Justin Bieber and “Hold On” at #45. His forthcoming album Justice is due on Friday. The recent viral hit “Calling My Phone” starts at #47 for Lil Tjay and 6LACK, which is flying through the top 20 on the Rhythmic radio chart and approaching the region on the Urban survey. Lastly, “Watchu Tryna Do?” puts chart newcomer GiGi Vega in the #50 spot this week.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (February 21, 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. Ready for our rocket ride to planet pop? It’s time for all you audio astronauts to discover what’s popping at the format this week:

ALIVE AT “35”: Pop superstar Ariana Grande remains at the top for a second week with “34+35”, the second consecutive chart-topper from her recent studio album Positions. However, Grande’s hit is likely to be unseated next week, as Olivia Rodrigo cruises down the highway of hits from 5-2 with “Driver’s License”.

New to the top 40, Cardi B moves from 44-39 with “Up”, while SZA rises a spot from 41-40 with “Good Days”. It’s the ninth top 40 song here for the former and the sixth for the latter. (Had Mediabase credited Cardi B for her featured slot on Ed Sheeran‘s “South Of The Border” that she shared with Camila Cabello, it would be her tenth.)

Format newcomers Masked Wolf and Jessia lead three new entries in the top 50 with their current viral tracks “Astronaut In The Ocean” and “I’m Not Pretty”, which debut at #43 and #44, respectively. Further down, G-Eazy lands at #48 with his Chris Brown and Mark Morrison-assisted “Provide”, which samples the latter’s 1997 hit “Return Of The Mack”.
