RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 30, 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. For one peachy holiday weekend romp up the pop radio chart, here’s what’s ripening at the format this week:

YOU’RE A PEACH: Justin Bieber easily picks up a third week atop on the Top 40 radio list with Daniel Caesar and GIVĒON-assisted “Peaches”, which is very likely to reign for a fourth week if the current trends remain on the same track. Elsewhere, the tune dips from 1-2 on the Rhythmic chart, but rises from 11-10 at the Hot AC format.

It’s another busy week in the top 40 with four new songs in the region, led by Marshmello and the Jonas Brothers with the collaboration “Leave Before You Love Me”, which bounces from 45-27. It’s their 11th and 13th top 40 hits at the format, respectively. Majid Jordan earns their first top 40 song in 7-1/2 years with “Waves Of Blue”, which splashes up the list from 42-36. Rising from 41-39, “I Did It” is still moving for DJ Khaled with Post Malone, Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Baby and DaBaby. As individual artists, this single marks their 12th, 14th, fifth, first and fourth top 40 hits, respectively. Polo G also takes his recent #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 into the top 40 on the pop radio list, as “Rapstar” advances from 44-40. It’s his first top 40 hit here, though he’s had plenty on both the Rhythmic and Urban charts.

Two new songs enter the top 50 this week: TikTok star and chart newcomer Bella Poarch comes in at #46 with her viral hit “Build A Bitch”, while Em starts without a bullet at #48 with “Say What You Mean”.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 23, 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. For your butter-flavored bounce up the pop radio chart, here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

LIFE’S A PEACH: Justin Bieber scores a second week at #1 on the Top 40 chart with Daniel Caesar and GIVĒON-assisted “Peaches”. The collaboration also remains atop the chart at the Rhythmic format for a second week.

Five new singles reach the top 40 this week, with the latest single from BTS leading the way with a high debut at #27. “Butter” is their eighth top 40 hit at the format, six of which were credited for their full run and the seventh coming last year when “Savage Love” hit the top spot for Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo in a remixed form. With a likely #1 album coming in Sour next week, Olivia Rodrigo leaps into the top 40 at #36 with “Good 4 U”, her third chart hit from the set. Newcomers Mimi Webb and Sara Kays lift into their top 40 with their first hits to date, respectively: the former’s “Good Without” is up from 44-38, while the latter’s “Remember That Night?” rises from 41-39. Finally, up 45-40 this week, NF returns with his fifth top 40 hit at the format in “Just Like You”.

In the top 50, we have another three entries: at #42, Majid Jordan swims onto the pop list with “Waves Of Blue”. At #45, it’s Marshmello and the Jonas Brothers with “Leave Before You Love Me”, which impacts at both the Hot AC and Top 40 formats this week. Finally, at #49 on the list, Cheat Codes and Tinashe are in with “Lean On Me”, which is unrelated to the song of the same title that became a major hit for Bill Withers in 1972 and Club Nouveau in 1987.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 27, 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. For all the top pop positions you want, here is a look at what’s popping at the format this week:

FROZEN POSITIONS: As we hit the midway point of the holiday freeze, superstar Ariana Grande is frozen at #1 on the Top 40 chart for a second week with the title cut from her album Positions. The follow-up single, “34+35”, advances from 15-13.

Ed Sheeran has this week’s only new entry in the top 40 with “Afterglow”, which debuts way up at #25. It’s his 21st top 40 hit. The song is also doing very well at the Hot AC format in its first week, where it enters at #19 and marks his 17th top 40 hit.

Three seasonal songs scored enough airplay to enter the top 50 this week, but will be gone by the next update: the Jonas Brothers return to the chart at #45 with “Like It’s Christmas”, Mariah Carey‘s new version of “Oh Santa!” (with the aforementioned Grande and Jennifer Hudson) lands at #47 and Taylor Swift‘s “Christmas Tree Farm” starts at #49. The original version of Carey’s tune dates back to 2010, while the other two entries were released last year.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 24, 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. Sure, it’s a holiday weekend, but the Top 40 chart is definitely not taking a holiday when it comes to fast action. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

CURIOSITY THRILLED THE CAT: For the third consecutive week, Doja Cat‘s “Say So” remains at #1 on the Top 40 chart. It’s likely to spend a fourth week at the summit, especially given the lack of competition currently in the top five. However, that’s not all for radio’s top feline this week, but you’ll have to wait and see what song of hers is meowing at the bottom of the list as you read on:

This is the most active week for top 40 entries in quite some time, led mostly by larger names and a couple of emerging ones. “X” by the Jonas Brothers is the highest of five tunes to make the jump, up from 45-26 to become the trio’s 12th top 40 hit at the format. Harry Styles picks up his fifth solo entry in the region with “Watermelon Sugar”, which flows from 42-28. This one follows “Adore You”, which spent a week at the top last month. The highly-anticipated collaboration from Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande is new at #38: “Rain On Me” showers the two women with their 21st and 22nd top 40 hits at the format, respectively. Grande is also at #18 with the Justin Bieber collaboration “Stuck With U”, which moves up from #22 last week. Jackson Wang leaps from 43-39 with “100 Ways”, his second top 40 entry of the year and the first since record label 88rising’s collaboration “Walking”, which got as high as #37 in January. Lastly, Alec Benjamin scores his first top 40 song with “Oh My God”, rising from 44-40.

Into the top 50, Katy Perry sprouts at #43 with “Daisies”, which is already in the top 20 on the Hot AC chart. As mentioned above, Doja Cat claws back onto the Top 40 chart with the Gucci Mane-assisted “Like That”, which climbs aboard at #45. One spot lower, the DaBaby and Roddy Ricch collaboration “Rockstar” starts strumming and rocks it out at #46. Both this single and “Like That” are well into the top 40 on the Rhythmic chart with current peaks of #13 and #23, respectively. Finally, Cyn reaches the top 50 with her first ever chart entry, “Drinks”. Landing at #49, the song is taken from the soundtrack to Promising Young Woman.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (May 19, 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: from blueberries to watermelons and everything in-between, the usual log is very tasty this week. Grab a bowl and let’s add ’em up:

AN X-CITING WEEK: With the follow-up to the top 20 single “What A Man Gotta Do”, the Jonas Brothers and featured artist Karol G put an “X” on the top spot with this week’s Most Added song, surging in with 104 stations on impact. The tune debuted at #45 on last weekend’s published update. Finishing in second place, Harry Styles‘s “Watermelon Sugar” certainly passed the taste test, earning 63 stations on impact after some early action. Last weekend, “Watermelon” ranked just above “X” at #42.

Tied for third place this week, Doja Cat‘s latest single, the Gucci Mane-assisted “Like That”, and Lil Mosey‘s “Blueberry Faygo” scored with 30 adds each, while Katy Perry‘s “Daisies” flowered with a fifth place finish and 24 stations two weeks before its adds date. “Blueberry” climbed to #36 by last weekend’s official chart, while “Daisies” and “Like That” were just below the top 50.

Charting singles from Ariana Grande & Justin Bieber and Megan Thee Stallion 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 collaboration from Lady Gaga and Grande.
