ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (January 11, 2022)

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 Weeknd has a new sacrificial smash for the Top 40 airwaves. Let’s add ’em up:

LOVE ON THE WEEKND: It was a wild first report of 2022 at the Top 40 format, as the adds flew in for plenty of emerging songs. In the top spot this week, The Weeknd secured 118 adds for “Sacrifice”, the new single from Dawn FM. It started at #37 on the published chart last weekend. In the runner-up position, Doja Cat meowed with 96 new stations for “Woman”, which climbed to #27 on the same chart update. Her labelmates Latto and SZA were also huge winners on the report this week: the former finished in third place with 59 new adds for “Big Energy”, while the latter appeared in fourth place with 38 new stations for “I Hate U”. Rounding out the top five, the late Juice WRLD and Justin Bieber wandered into fifth place with “Wandered To LA”, new at 37 stations.

Just below the region, the recent collaboration from Alesso and Katy Perry was also decent on the report: “When I’m Gone” scored a total of 28 adds and tied for seventh place on the list. Meanwhile, watch out for newcomer Lauren Spencer-Smith, whose “Fingers Crossed” is also in seventh place. The viral hit (currently being worked by in2une) was teased on TikTok beginning in November and released last week.

Charting singles from Emmy Meli and GAYLE also returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next week for another action-packed adds session.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (January 9, 2022)

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. From L.A. to Peru, these songs are moving at the pop format:

MAXIMIZING “ME” TIME: 2022 is starting off well for superstar Adele, as she continues at #1 on the Top 40 chart for a sixth week with “Easy On Me”. It remains more than 1,700 spins ahead of the song at #2.

Taken from his new album Dawn FM, The Weeknd scores his 23rd top 40 hit at the format with “Sacrifice”, entering at #37 this week. This entry is unrelated to the Bebe Rexha song of the same name that charted last spring or the Elton John song interpolated in his current hit “Cold Heart”, which holds at #9 on the list. Up from 43-39, the late Juice WRLD and Justin Bieber are in with “Wandered To LA”, giving the two men their fourth and 38th top 40 singles, respectively. It’s included on the posthumous album Fighting Demons, which peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200 last month.

Three singles appear in the top 50 for the first time this week: “When I’m Gone” is the highest of the new entries, as Alesso and Katy Perry start at #45. ALYA is at #46 with “Pleasure Is Mine”, while Fireboy DML brings some heat at #49 with the Ed Sheeran-assisted “Peru”.

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.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (August 18, 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: Miley Cyrus is sky high on the log with her latest tune, while the top five sees some major turnover. Let’s add ’em up:

“MIDNIGHT” ROCKS: The 80’s-inspired “Midnight Sky” by Miley Cyrus is today’s winner at the Top 40 format, as it struts into the adds report with 117 stations on impact. It also led yesterday’s report at Hot AC radio. Dan + Shay‘s “I Should Probably Go To Bed” followed in second place with 41 stations this week, so the format certainly wasn’t sleeping on it. Unsurprisingly, it finished in the runner-up position behind Cyrus on the same Hot AC log. The two releases are off to a great start on both charts.

In third place, Drake starts with 32 stations on impact for the Lil Durk-assisted “Laugh Now Cry Later”, which grabs the top spot on the reports at both Rhythmic and Urban radio this week. Zara Larsson also returns to the Top 40 report with 2019’s ‘Wow”. It rockets into fourth place with 22 stations during the session, which follows a prominent placement in Netflix’s Work It from earlier this month. (The song previously earned some unsolicited airplay at the format last summer.

Charting singles from Billie Eilish and Zoe Wees returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap, including data on the BTS single that’s sure to, well, explode at the format.

2. DAN + SHAY, “”I Should Probably Go To Bed”” (Warner)

RADIO REPORT: What’s Popping At Top 40 Radio This Week (July 27-28, 2020)

It’s time once again to analyze the airwaves and find out if your favorite new releases will be lighting up your local station’s playlist this week. Which tunes will climb to the top and which ones will hit a stop? Here are four tracks impacting this week at the Top 40 format:

JEREMY ZUCKER – “Supercuts” (Republic)
Album: TBA (2020)
Past T40 History: Last March, Zucker entered the pop chart for the first time with his song “Comethru”, which got as high as #37.

JONAS BLUE & MAX – “Naked” (Astralwerks/Capitol)
Album: TBA (2020)
Past T40 History: Blue continues to struggle here: his highest-charting track, the William Singe-assisted “Mama”, hit #31 in 2017.

MAROON 5 – “Nobody’s Love” (222/Interscope)
Album: TBA (2020)
Past T40 History: This song entered at #36 on yesterday’s published chart, extending the popular band’s history to 28 top 40 hits.

TAYLOR SWIFT – “Cardigan” (Republic)
Album: Folklore (2020)
Past T40 History: It’s not quite “Lovefool” by The Cardigans, a #1 single for six weeks in 1997, but “Cardigan” should still be solid.

Among next week’s impacting titles is a Latin lovefest from J Balvin, Dua Lipa, Bad Bunny and Tainy. Will it rule for one day and pace ahead of other emerging titles? Stay tuned.

How will these songs perform on the adds report? Let me know!
