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 spot for fresh faces and delightful debuts is looking super, so let’s check out what’s popping at the format this week:
THE GIFTED KID: Once again, the dynamic duo of The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber earn a sixth week at #1 on the Top 40 chart with “Stay”. The collaboration is also the new #1 song at the Hot AC format this week, moving up two spots from last week.
TikTok star and singer Nessa Barrett lifts from 44-38 with her second top 40 hit at the format, “I Hope Ur Miserable Until Ur Dead”, taken from her recent EP titled Pretty Poison. The Anxiety (the duo of Willow and Tyler Cole) debuts at #39 with “Meet Me At Our Spot”, their first top 40 hit as a pair and Cole individually, but the second overall for Willow. Finally, Monsta X picks up their third top 40 song for “One Day”, advancing from 43-40.
Three solo men and their latest songs are new to the top 50, led by Troye Sivan and “Angel Baby” at #46. Newcomer Vaultboy checks in at #49 with “Everything Sucks”, a viral track that spread on TikTok earlier this year, while Trevor Daniel gets inspired by some Alice Deejay and lands at #50 with “Alone”.
