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.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 17, 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. Ahead of a competitive adds session for this coming Tuesday and the upcoming Memorial Day weekend, here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

CAT’S ON THE PROWL: Doja Cat spends a second week at #1 on the Top 40 chart with “Say So”. Look for the follow-up single, the Gucci Mane-assisted “Like That”, to impact at the format this week after some early action on last Tuesday’s adds report.

Lil Mosey rises from 41-36 with his first top 40 entry at the format, “Blueberry Faygo”. The song samples Johnny Gill‘s “My, My, My”, which reached #14 on the CHR radio chart in September 1990. The eponymous first song from The Scotts, the duo of Travis Scott and Kid Cudi, also moves from 44-40 to give the two men their first top 40 hit as a duo.

The Jonas Brothers are new at #45 with “X”, one of two songs the guys released on Friday. The song features labelmate Karol G, whose Nicki Minaj-assisted “Tusa” landed in the top 50 earlier this year. Starting at #48, the TikTok-fueled “Don’t Rush” becomes the first charting song for the duo Young T & Bugsey and rapper Headie One. One further collaboration lands at #50: “Suda” by newcomer Melanie Pfirrman, whose song features Pitbull and his DJ IAmChino.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (January 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: just cuz we love Lizzo and Taylor Swift, the Top 40 panel has rewarded their latest singles with first and second place finishes on this week’s report. Who landed where? Let’s add ’em up:

CUZ THEY’RE MOST ADDED: After a very fierce battle for much of the day, Grammy nominee Swift’s “The Man” is just ahead of winner Lizzo’s “Cuz I Love You” on the Top 40 adds report, earning 87 and 80 stations on impact, respectively. Swift’s track was in second place on yesterday’s report at Hot AC radio. Lizzo’s track tied for first place on the new report at Rhythmic radio. They’re both likely to fly into the top 40 by the weekend, “Cuz” from its #49 entry last Sunday and “Man” from just outside the top 50.

Two more impacting releases made the top five today: Doja Cat‘s “Say So”, earning 33 stations and a third place finish, and Noah Cyrus‘s “July”, earning 28 stations and a fifth place finish. The former title is the follow-up to “Juicy”, which reached the top 40 in late December and registered a new peak of #33 last Sunday. The latter song, which is available in its original form and an updated version with Leon Bridges, has appeared in the top ten on the adds report at Hot AC radio for the past two weeks. The two tracks should find their way into the top 50 at the format by the weekend, likely due to the recent lowered spin threshold to chart.

Charting songs from Roddy Ricch and the Jonas Brothers are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

Next week, Selena Gomez‘s “Rare” (tied for third place) should have another huge week at the format for its official impact date.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. TAYLOR SWIFT, “The Man” (Republic)
2. LIZZO, “Cuz I Love You” (Atlantic)
3-T. DOJA CAT, “Say So” (Kemosabe/RCA)
3-T. SELENA GOMEZ, “Rare” (Interscope)
5. NOAH CYRUS, “July” (RECORDS/Columbia)
6. RODDY RICCH, “The Box” (Atlantic)
7. CHELSEA CUTLER, “Sad Tonight” (Republic)
8-T. HALSEY, “You Should Be Sad” (Capitol)
8-T. JONAS BROTHERS, “What A Man Gotta Do” (Republic)
10. LEWIS CAPALDI, “Before You Go” (Capitol)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (January 21, 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: the Jonas Brothers gotta ‘nother hit, but who else in the mix? Let’s add ’em up:

“MAN” OF THE HOUR: With 164 adds on impact, “What A Man Gotta Do” by the Jonas Brothers dominated the Top 40 report, easily securing the top spot. On the Hot AC report, it picked up another 55 adds, where it also started in first place. With a nice top 30 debut on both charts by last Sunday’s published update, the song won’t waste any time flying up through the coming weeks. It’s expected to lead a forthcoming studio album by the siblings, which is due sometime later this year.

Labelmate Chelsea Cutler also managed a solid first week with “Sad Tonight”, landing in third place with 39 stations. Her album How To Be Human was released last Friday. It’s her first single to officially impact at the Top 40 format, though she did score a bit of Triple A airplay last year for the Jeremy Zucker collaboration “You Were Good To Me”, which failed to chart.

Charting songs from Alicia Keys, Halsey and The Weeknd are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

Next week, Lizzo‘s “Cuz I Love You” is likely to see a lot of love at the Top 40 format. Will Noah Cyrus‘s “July” share it?

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. JONAS BROTHERS, “What A Man Gotta Do” (Republic)
2. HALSEY, “You Should Be Sad” (Capitol)
3. CHELSEA CUTLER, “Sad Tonight” (Republic)
4-T CAMILA CABELLO featuring DABABY, “My Oh My” (Syco/Epic)
4-T. THE WEEKND, “Blinding Lights” (XO/Republic)
6. RODDY RICCH, “The Box” (Atlantic)
7-T. ALICIA KEYS, “Underdog” (RCA)
7-T. BLACK EYED PEAS x J BALVIN, “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)” (Epic)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (January 19, 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. Whether you’re a loser, lover or somewhere in-between, we’ve got you covered with plenty of pop stats. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

COME AND GET YOUR “LOVE”: Earning her fifth #1 single at the Top 40 format and first since 2016, Selena Gomez rises up a notch with “Lose You To Love Me”. It also reaches the top ten on this week’s Hot AC chart, moving from 11-10. This single appears on her recent album Rare, with the title track from the set edging closer to the top 50 here after strong unsolicited airplay.

There are three acts with at least one #1 song to their credit entering the top 40 this week: Halsey with “You Should Be Sad”, which rises from 45-23, the Jonas Brothers with “What A Man Gotta Do”, starting at #29 and Lewis Capaldi with “Before You Go”, up from 41-33. It’s the 13th top 40 hit for Halsey, the 11th for the siblings and the second for Capaldi. “You” is the latest single from her album Manic, which debuted on Friday and is expected to launch in the top three on the Billboard 200 survey. “What” is likely to be the lead single from the trio’s sixth studio album, due sometime later this year. “Before” is taken from an expanded edition of the set Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, which became available last November.

The international single “Ride It” by Regard, a DJ who flipped an old Jay Sean song into a viral dance record, breaks the top 50 at #47 this week. Newcomer Roddy Rich raps his way towards more riches with this week’s #49 debut, “The Box”. The song, which is also blasting up the Rhythmic and Urban charts, recently topped the Billboard Hot 100 list. Lastly, Post Malone is in at #50 with a recent #1 tune on the Rhythmic chart, the DaBaby-assisted “Enemies”, taken from the album Hollywood’s Bleeding.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 29, 2019)

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. We made it: 2019’s last official chart. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

THE CIRCLE ISN’T SMALL: As the end of the decade edges closer, Post Malone‘s “Circles” leads the Top 40 chart for the third nonconsecutive week. In terms of spins, it’s safely ahead of established hits by Lizzo (#2) and Selena Gomez (#3), so it might end up with one additional week at the top (unless Gomez’s song recovers enough to push through by next weekend. Stay tuned.)

The Weeknd‘s “Blinding Lights” shines from 44-38, marking his 13th top 40 song at the format. His prior single, “Heartless”, rises a notch from 16-15. Newcomer Doja Cat scratches into the top 40 as well, jumping from 41-39 with “Juicy”. It currently ranks at #7 and #12 on the Rhythmic and Urban radio charts, respectively. The hit is available in both an album version and a remix with Tyga.

Camila Cabello bolts into the top 50 at #41 with the DaBaby-assisted “My Oh My”, the newest single off her album Romance. It’s scheduled to impact at the format next Tuesday, while it heads for Hot AC adds a day earlier. Coming off larger seasonal airplay, the Jonas Brothers will spend a single week on the chart with “Like It’s Christmas”, which checks in at #48. It recently topped the AC radio list, though it drops from 1-8 on the new update. (Appropriately, the trio replaces themselves at the summit with “Sucker”.)

Happy New Year from PGTC! See you for more radio fun in 2020.
