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. This week’s chart may be the sweetest of the month…
YOU’VE GOT GAYLE: 17-year-old GAYLE spends a third (and likely final) week at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart with “Abcdefu”. The single is headed for the top of the Hot AC chart, advancing from 5-3 this week.
The latest baked treat served hot and fresh on the chart is “Sweetest Pie”, a collaboration from Megan Thee Stallion and Dua Lipa at #33. It’s their seventh and 17th top 40 hits at the format, respectively. Em Beihold rises from 41-36 with her viral hit “Numb Little Bug”, her first top 40 hit ever. Lastly, Tyga and Doja Cat jump from 47-40 with “Freaky Deaky”. Not so freaky: it’s the tenth top 40 single for both artists.
A couple of buzzing collaborations lead some entries in the top 50 this week: newcomer Omah Lay and chart regular Justin Bieber land at #46 with “Attention”, while Latin stars Becky G and Karol G start at #47 with “Mamiii”. The forecast also looks solid for Eddie Benjamin and “Weatherman”, which becomes his first chart entry at #49.
