RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 14, 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. Writing about music and radio charts at the moment is a bit strange, but for petition and donation resources in the fight against racial inequality in our country, please go to this website and do what you can. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

BACK INTO THE LIGHT: Returning to the summit on the Top 40 radio chart for a fourth nonconsecutive week, The Weeknd‘s “Blinding Lights” is enduring on the pop airwaves, while simultaneously topping the list at the Hot AC format. The tune is now in its 25th week in the top 40. The most recent single from his After Hours album, “In Your Eyes”, stalled out a few weeks back at #19.

There’s some crazy top 40 action on the chart this week, including six new entries in the region. Gabby Barrett‘s “I Hope” makes a huge leap from 42-32 to become her first top 40 single at the format. It previously topped the Country radio chart in April. From the soundtrack to upcoming film Promising Young Woman, Cyn earns her first top 40 hit with “Drinks”, up from 41-35. After narrowly missing the top 40 with two releases in 2016, JoJo has her first top 40 song in eight years with “Man”, climbing from 43-37. It’s her sixth title to enter the region since 2004. The Surf Mesa and Emilee collaboration “ILY (I Love You Baby)” leaps from 45-38, with the two performers each earning their first top 40 entries. Sam Fischer jumps from 44-39 with “This City”, as he lands his first top 40 entry here as well. It now ranks in the top 20 on the Hot AC chart. Last but not least, Ashe climbs from 46-40 on the survey with “Moral Of The Story”, which is currently in the top 15 on the Alternative chart.

The top 50 is just as active on the chart with another six entries in that region, led by Tones And I‘s “Ur So F**king Cool” at #43. It follows the global hit “Dance Monkey”, which spent six nonconsecutive weeks at #6 on the Top 40 survey this year. Newcomer Pink Sweat$ isn’t sweating his entry at #45 with “17”, followed by the TikTok-fueled “Banana” by Conkarah and Shaggy, which begins to ripen at #47. Olivia O’Brien‘s “Josslyn” starts at #48, as she makes her first appearance on the chart since the end of 2016. That year also happens to be the same one when Melanie Martinez last charted at the format; her “Play Date” arrives at #49. Sia‘s new single “Together” ends this Sunday’s wild chart adventure; the cut from her upcoming film Music sneaks in at #50.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 3, 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. Ready for some more quarantunes and how they’re doing on the radio? Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

“MY” NEW NUMBER ONE: In its 18th week in the top 40, Camila Cabello and DaBaby‘s “My Oh My” climbs from 2-1 on the Top 40 chart. It’s the fifth solo #1 song for Cabello outside of Fifth Harmony and the first for DaBaby. The track is also doing very well on the Hot AC radio chart, where it moves from 10-9 this week, though its current peaks are much lower at other formats.

Starting off a very busy week of new entries and debuts in the lower regions of the chart is “If The World Was Ending”, the JP Saxe and Julia Michaels collaboration that continues to connect with listeners as the Coronavirus pandemic affects the world. It moves from 42-36 on the pop chart, becoming Saxe’s first top 40 song at the format and Michaels’s seventh. You’ll also find it in the top 20 on both the AC and Hot AC charts. “Believe It” lifts from 41-37 for PartyNextDoor and Rihanna, becoming their fourth and 50th top 40 hits here, respectively. This week, the track ranks just below the top ten on the Rhythmic chart, as it climbs into the top 20 at Urban radio. After a two-month rollercoaster ride up and down the top 50, Conan Gray scores his first top 40 entry with “Maniac” with a move from 43-38. Finally, roasting at #40 is the gooey Marshmello, in a fiery collaboration with Halsey, and “Be Kind”. It marks one s’more top 40 entry for each of them: the eighth for the masked performer and the 14th for Halsey.

Singer JoJo breaks into the top 50 for the first time here since the fall of 2016 with “Man”, which enters at #47. It’s included on her latest album Good To Know, which was released on Friday. Format newcomer Sam Fischer lands at #48 with “This City”. It’s now approaching the top 20 on the Hot AC chart. A notch below him, Alec Benjamin checks in at #49 with “Oh My God”, his first tune to rank here in just over a year. It’s also #46 on this week’s Hot AC list. Finally, the eponymous first track from The Scotts, the duo of Travis Scott and Kid Cudi, slides in at #50. So far, it’s doing best on Rhythmic chart, where it debuts way up at #27.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 28, 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: in a very divided week at this format, Sam Smith and Demi Lovato are more than ready for a second week atop the adds report. Who else qualified for a medal? Let’s add ’em up:

“READY” FOR MORE: For the second week in a row, Smith and Lovato’s hit collaboration “I’m Ready” took the top prize on the adds report with 36 more stations in its second week. SAINt JHN‘s “Roses” followed closely in second place with 24 adds here.

There were a number of impacting releases this week, but no one song dominated on the log, likely due in part to a smaller number of stations actually reporting adds. The highest of them, Alec Benjamin‘s “Oh My God”, tied for third place with 20 stations. This will likely become his second charting song at the format, with “Let Me Down Slowly” spending two weeks at #50 last March. More new titles that entered to the top ten are below, including tunes from AJR, Fitz And The Tantrums and The Scotts.

Charting singles from Maren Morris, Powfu 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. Stay safe out there.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (THIRTEEN)
1. SAM SMITH & DEMI LOVATO, “I’m Ready” (Capitol)
2. SAINT JHN, “Roses” (Godd Complexx/HITCO)
3-T. ALEC BENJAMIN, “Oh My God” (Artist Partner/Atlantic)
3-T. MEGAN THEE STALLION, “Savage” (1501 Certified Ent./300 Ent.)
5. POWFU featuring BEABADOOBEE, “Coffee For Your Head (Death Bed)” (Robots & Humans/Columbia)
6-T. AJR, “Bang!” (S-Curve/Hollywood)
6-T. THE SCOTTS, “The Scotts” (Epic)
8-T. JOJO, “Man” (Warner)
8-T. TWENTY ONE PILOTS, “Level Of Concern” (Fueled By Ramen/EMG)
10-T. FITZ AND THE TANTRUMS, “I Just Wanna Shine” (Elektra/EMG)

“READY” FOR FLIGHT: After a solid debut in the top 50 on last Sunday’s published update, Sam Smith and Demi Lovato place first on this Tuesday’s adds report with “I’m Ready” with a giant 100 stations on impact. The song title has previously landed in the top 40 on several occasions for different compositions by Tevin Campbell (#7, 1994), Cherie (#31, 2004) and AJR (#25, 2014).

No other songs impacted at the format during Tuesday’s session, but some newer collaborations from JP Saxe & Julia Michaels and Tyga & Curtis Roach did enter the top five for the first time, both at 15 stations for the week.

Charting singles from Lauv, SAINt JHN and Twenty One Pilots return to the top ten on the adds report this week.

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: the high-flying new hit from Twenty One Pilots dominates the adds list without much concern at all. Let’s add ’em up:

NEXT “LEVEL” ADDS: With the Most Added tune at Alternative, Hot AC and Top 40 radio this week, Twenty One Pilots earn a total of 106 first-week stations on the pop airwaves with “Level Of Concern”. It’s their biggest launch ever at this format. After only going as high as #29 with the most successful crossover single from their 2018 album Trench, this release should do much better.

The only other impacting song to break the top ten comes from JoJo, who earns 14 stations for “Man”, which ties for eighth place.

Charting singles from Drake, Dua Lipa and The Weeknd return to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap. Stay safe out there.

8-T. DUA LIPA, “Break My Heart” (Warner)
8-T. JOJO, “Man” (Warner)
8-T. REGARD, “Ride It” (Epic)
