ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (January 14, 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: Alicia Keys and Halsey have the key records finishing in the top two. At the end of the day, it was a close one. Did the underdog succeed? Let’s add ’em up:

YOU SHOULD BE AT THE TOP: After a very tight battle for the top of the report this week, Keys’s “Underdog” narrowly edged out Halsey’s “You Should Be Sad” as the Most Added song at the Top 40 format. The former checked in with 119 stations, while the latter came in with 111. Keys, who will be hosting the Grammy Awards at the end of the month, recently scored her first chart entry at the format in seven years. Halsey, whose Manic album streets this Friday, recently peaked at #8 here with “Graveyard”.

International hit “Ride It” by DJ/producer Regard makes its first trip into the top ten this week, securing 11 adds and eighth place on the leaderboard. The song has been moving towards the top 50 for a few weeks now; we’ll see if this boost gets it in there.

Charting songs from Lewis Capaldi and Trevor Daniel are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

What a man gotta do to get the Most Added song at the format? The Jonas Brothers will let us in on the answer next Tuesday.

1. ALICIA KEYS, “Underdog” (RCA)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (January 7, 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: Justin Bieber has a very tasty Top 40 recipe for the pop audience, as the panel dishes some big add totals for the first official impact date of 2020. Let’s add ’em up:

JUSTIN CASE YOU FORGOT: Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Justin Bieber is flying up the pop chart as a collaborator on Dan + Shay‘s “10,000 Hours” and with his own solo track “Yummy”, the latter of which leads the week’s Top 40 adds report with 178 stations coming in on impact. (That’s nine stations short of clearing the whole panel.) It also led the reports at the Hot AC, Rhythmic and Urban formats, earning nearly 365 stations in its first week across all formats in North America. Back at Top 40 radio, the song will cruise into the top 20 by Sunday’s published chart and could be a serious top ten record soon after that.

After some early action at the format, Camila Cabello‘s current single, the DaBaby-assisted “My Oh My”, makes a move into the runner-up spot on the report with 104 stations on impact. The Weeknd‘s “Blinding Lights” also brightens the top three on the log with 67 stations in its first full week, as “Heartless” continues to surge towards the top ten.

Charting songs from Billie Eilish, Doja Cat and Ed Sheeran are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

Following early add support for several weeks, Trevor Daniel‘s “Falling” will be the Tok of the panel when it impacts on Tuesday.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. JUSTIN BIEBER, “Yummy” (Def Jam)
2. CAMILA CABELLO featuring DABABY, “My Oh My” (Syco/Epic)
3. THE WEEKND, “Blinding Lights” (XO/Republic)
4. ED SHEERAN featuring CAMILA CABELLO & CARDI B, “South Of The Border” (Atlantic)
5. LEWIS CAPALDI, “Before You Go” (Capitol)
6. TREVOR DANIEL, “Falling” (Alamo/Interscope)
7. BILLIE EILISH, “Everything I Wanted” (Darkroom/Interscope)
8. DOJA CAT, “Juicy” (Kemosabe/RCA)
9-T. JOJI & JACKSON WANG (88RISING) featuring SWAE LEE & MAJOR LAZER, “Walking” (88rising/12Tone)
9-T. ZEDD & KEHLANI, “Good Thing” (Interscope)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (January 5, 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. New year, same number one! However, this week’s chart is also full of some decent action and several new songs. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

CIRCLING ANOTHER YEAR: Post Malone‘s “Circles” holds at #1 on the Top 40 list for the fourth nonconsecutive week, as it’s now in the books as the last #1 single at the Top 40 format for the 2010’s and the first of the 2020’s. The multi-format hit remains at #8 on the Hot AC radio chart, while it pauses at #15 on the Rhythmic list.

Starting way up at #22, Justin Bieber scores his 27th top 40 hit at the format with “Yummy”, the highly-anticipated lead single off his forthcoming studio album. Bieber also lands at #10 as a part of the Dan + Shay collaboration “10,000 Hours”. Moving from 41-32, Camila Cabello earns her 15th solo top 40 hit with the DaBaby-assisted “My Oh My”, the latter of whom picks up his first. It’s likely that these two songs will complete a 1-2 finish on Tuesday’s adds report at the format, with Bieber leading Cabello/DaBaby.

Two other collaborations of note reach the top 50 this week, led by Iggy Azalea and Alice Chater‘s “Lola” at #47. The track marks the first top 50 entry for Azalea in about two years and the first ever chart appearance for Chater. At #50, “On Chill” chills at the end of the list for Wale and Jeremih. The former #1 at the Rhythmic and Urban formats is the first top 50 single on the pop chart in 6-1/2 years for the former, while the latter scores his first in nearly four.

ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2019: #40-31

As 2019 and the decade draw to a close, it’s time for the annual Top 100 of the year! According to my tabulations, these titles ranked as the most successful on my personal chart. The year was full of love, found and lost, from “Higher Love” and “Lover” to “Somebody You Loved” and more. Time was the essence, whether it was “All The Time” or “The Last Time”, and the light guided the way towards the upper half of the list, including “Light On” and “Lights Up”.

So, come along with “ME!” as I count down the hits, won’t you? Let’s get some numbers rolling…

The 2019 chart year encompasses a period of 52 weekly surveys from the chart dated December 2, 2018 to the chart dated November 24, 2018. Peaks listed reflect the highest position reached by the final list of this period. For any ties in points, a song with the higher peak is listed first, and further ties are broken by the weeks at a song’s peak position and the amount of time charted in the top 40. 167 titles had at least one point qualify towards the year-end chart, a decrease from the 171 that did so in 2018.

40. DEAN LEWIS, “7 Minutes”
Album: A Place We Knew
Label: Island/Republic
Peak: #8

39. LEWIS CAPALDI, “Someone You Loved”
Album: Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent
Label: Capitol

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (October 29, 2019)

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: Selena Gomez has a winning song about losing, while Kesha is raising her profile on the log with her new collaboration. Let’s add ’em up:

“LOSE” WINS BIG: Pop star Selena Gomez, who’s looking for her first #1 song at the format since the spring of 2016, could be a couple of months away from it with “Lose You To Love Me”, which debuted last week. The very personal ballad easily grabs the top spot on this week’s report with a giant 168 stations on impact, which doesn’t include a handful of adds that came in early last week. It also led yesterday’s report at Hot AC radio with 37 stations there. The song entered at #29 on last Sunday’s published update. At this point, it could be vying for a solid move into the top 20 by the weekend.

In second place with a very strong total, Kesha’s “Raising Hell”, a collaboration with Big Freedia, is in with 83 stations. After just sneaking into this past weekend’s chart at #50, it should have larger jump up the chart, likely well into the top 40. It also ranked in second place on yesterday’s log at Hot AC radio, coming in with 18 stations.

Recent charting releases by Blackbear, Charlie Puth and Tones And I are among those prominent titles making up the rest of the top ten, which also includes an impacting title from AJR and some early action for Louis Tomlinson‘s latest.

Next week, Dua Lipa‘s upcoming single “Don’t Start Now” should, in fact, start atop the usual adds report at the format.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. SELENA GOMEZ, “Lose You To Love Me” (Interscope)
2. KESHA featuring BIG FREEDIA, “Raising Hell” (Kemosabe/RCA)
3. TONES AND I, “Dance Monkey” (Bad Batch-Elektra/EMG)
4. ISABELA MERCED, “Papi” (Republic)
5-T. AJR, “Dear Winter” (S-Curve/Hollywood)
5-T. BLACKBEAR, “Hot Girl Bummer” (Beartrap/Alamo/Interscope)
7-T. DAN + SHAY featuring JUSTIN BIEBER, “10,000 Hours” (Warner)
7-T. LOUIS TOMLINSON, “We Made It” (Arista/RED)
9. BILLIE EILISH, “All The Good Girls Go To Hell” (Darkroom/Interscope)
10. CHARLIE PUTH, “Mother” (Artist Partner/Atlantic)
