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.

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: terrific triple digit wins for Maroon 5 and Taylor Swift‘s latest releases. Let’s add ’em up:

“NOBODY’S” SUPPOSED TO BE HERE: After a day of heavy action, Maroon 5’s “Nobody’s Love” secures the love of the radio panel, picking up 143 Top 40 stations on impact. Finishing in a strong second place, Swift’s “Cardigan” warms up with 110 adds.

Impacting singles from DJ Khaled and Drake (#4), Jeremy Zucker (#6) and Jonas Blue and MAX (#8) also reached the top ten on impact, but with significantly smaller totals. “Popstar” is already inside the top 50 at the format. The latter two entries could enter the region (with continued support) during the latter part of August.

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!

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 26, 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. The end of July is here and the summer hits are taking over the chart and the heart… here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

HAVE A “HEART”: Dua Lipa earns her third #1 song at the Top 40 format with “Break My Heart”, which leaps from 3-1. Earlier this year, “Don’t Start Now” spent six weeks at the top, making her the only act to have more than one chart-topper in 2020. The hit also ranks at #9 on this week’s Hot AC chart update.

Earning their 28th top 40 single at the format, Maroon 5 vaults into the top 40 at #36 with “Nobody’s Love”. It’s their follow-up to “Memories”, which spent two weeks at #1 in February. The Juice WRLD and Marshmello collaboration “Come & Go” also enters at #40: it’s the third top 40 hit (and first posthumous entry) for the former artist, as the latter collects his ninth.

The only new title in the top 50 comes from DJ Khaled and Drake, who start at #50 with “Popstar”. This is the third collaboration between the two artists to reach the region here. The track is already in the top 20 on the Rhythmic radio chart and should approach the region on the Urban chart in the next week or two.

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 three emerging singles impacting this week at the Top 40 format:

CONAN GRAY, “Maniac” (Republic)
Album: Kid Krow (2020)
Past T40 History: This is Gray’s first song to impact at the format. It isn’t a remake of Michael Sembello’s chart-topper from 1983.

EMINEM featuring JUICE WRLD, “Godzilla” (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope)
Album: Music To Be Murdered By (2020)
Past T40 History: This new track will likely become Juice WRLD’s first posthumous top 40 hit. He earned two during his lifetime.

SAM SMITH, “To Die For” (Capitol)

Past T40 History: The title cut from Smith’s forthcoming album recently became their 13th top 40 single at the format since 2014.
