RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 26, 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. Let’s see what’s wandering up the list at the format this week:

“EASY” TO PIVOT: As radio shifts from seasonal to year-end programming, Adele holds at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for a fourth week in a row with “Easy On Me”. The song is still in the top ten at four separate formats: AC, Hot AC, R&B (formerly Urban AC) and Top 40.

Format star Doja Cat scores her ninth top 40 hit with “Woman”, soaring from 41-33 this week. It’s the fourth single to chart from her album Planet Her. Rising from 46-38, “Merry Christmas” goes on a sleigh ride up the survey for Ed Sheeran and Elton John. It’s the 24th top 40 song for Sheeran and the 48th for John when combining the archives of both Mediabase and Radio & Records since late 1973. Lastly, “It Was A… (Masked Christmas)” leaps from 42-40 this week, as Jimmy Fallon, Ariana Grande and Megan Thee Stallion sit and unwrap their first, 27th and sixth top 40 presents, or singles, respectively.

The last top 50 entry of the year is a posthumous hit from Juice WRLD in a collaboration with Justin Bieber. “Wandered To LA” wanders into the countdown at #48.
