Post Malone was next with “Motley Crew”, starting in the runner-up position with 90 adds. It easily led this week’s report at the Rhythmic format, scoring a hefty 61 first week stations there. At Urban radio, the song was less successful: it started in ninth place with 22 adds total.

With 66 new stations, “NDA” came in third this week, as Billie Eilish earned 15 adds and a second place finish at the Alternative format.

Finally, Kane Brown and Blackbear pulled in a very respectable 52 commitments with “Memory”, which charged into fourth place.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 11, 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. X marks the spot for what’s popping at the format this week:

THE “NAME” ON TOP: With his first #1 song on the Top 40 radio chart, Lil Nas X lifts from 2-1 with “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)”. The hit also advances from 5-3 at the Rhythmic format.

Debuting on the survey at #38 is the new collaboration from The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber, which uses one of the most common one-word titles of all-time: “Stay”. It’s their third and 36th top 40 hits, respectively. Rising from 42-39, “Cloudy Day” is now the third top 40 entry for Tones And I and her latest from the Welcome To The Madhouse album, due this coming Friday. Meanwhile, P!nk earns her 30th top hit with “All I Know So Far”, a song featured on the soundtrack to her Amazon documentary of the same name. It’s up a single notch to #40.

Starting at #43, Post Malone leads a solid crew of four top 50 entries with “Motley Crew”. The song also lands in the top 40 at the Rhythmic format this week. Maroon 5 is up next at #45 with “Lost”, the new single from their recent album Jordi. The track is already rising in the top 40 at Hot AC radio. A new single from Billie Eilish enters one spot lower at #46. “NDA” is the fifth song off her forthcoming album Happier Than Ever to chart at this format, this one coming about three weeks ahead of the project’s street date. Finally, Trinidad Cardona cashes in with the TikTok-approved winner “Dinero”, which hits the jackpot with a debut at #48.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 13, 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. Everyone is A-O-K to check out this week’s update, so here’s a look at what’s popping at the format:

LIPA LEVITATES: We have a tie! Two songs were logged at 17,513 spins by the final update, but Dua Lipa narrowly advanced from 2-1 on the chart with “Levitating”, flying ahead of Justin Bieber and his Daniel Caesar and GIVĒON-assisted “Peaches”. This is the fourth song to reach the summit for Lipa, three of which have come from her Future Nostalgia era.

TikTok star Bella Poarch has this week’s top new entry in the top 40 with “Build A Bitch”, which soars from 41-32. It’s her first song to land on the chart. With their respective fourth top 40 singles, Cheat Codes and Tinashe lean into the region with “Lean On Me”, up from 42-36. We also have the first chart song from Mooski, who recently led the Rhythmic and Urban radio charts with “Track Star”. This week, it jumps from 44-40 on the list.

Tai Verdes ranks with his first chart entry at #45 and that’s certainly “A-O-K” with him. It’s also on the move at the Alternative radio format this week, where it reaches the top 40. Calvin Harris and Tom Grennan debut at #47 with “By Your Side”, a collaboration that just hit the top 20 in the United Kingdom. Billie Eilish is also new to the survey at #48 with “Lost Cause”, a recent track from her forthcoming Happier Than Ever album.

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. If you believe in a higher power or the power of magic, then it just so happens to a great week to check out the musical and mystical adventure of the pop format and these top titles:

PICKING UP THE PEACHES: Justin Bieber spends a fourth week at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart with Daniel Caesar and GIVĒON-assisted “Peaches”, as Dua Lipa is back on the move with “Levitating”, lifting from 4-2. Will it ascend to the top next week? Stay tuned.

The only new entry in the top 40 comes from Coldplay, whose “Higher Power” rises from 42-39. The current top ten song on the Alternative chart is their 13th top 40 hit at the pop format since first ranking here in 2001.

Three titles enter the top 50 this week. Leading the way, Tomorrow x Together works their musical “Magic” and completes a chart trick at #47. New at #49, P!nk is in with “All I Know So Far”, the title cut from the soundtrack to her new Amazon documentary.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 30, 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. For one peachy holiday weekend romp up the pop radio chart, here’s what’s ripening at the format this week:

YOU’RE A PEACH: Justin Bieber easily picks up a third week atop on the Top 40 radio list with Daniel Caesar and GIVĒON-assisted “Peaches”, which is very likely to reign for a fourth week if the current trends remain on the same track. Elsewhere, the tune dips from 1-2 on the Rhythmic chart, but rises from 11-10 at the Hot AC format.

It’s another busy week in the top 40 with four new songs in the region, led by Marshmello and the Jonas Brothers with the collaboration “Leave Before You Love Me”, which bounces from 45-27. It’s their 11th and 13th top 40 hits at the format, respectively. Majid Jordan earns their first top 40 song in 7-1/2 years with “Waves Of Blue”, which splashes up the list from 42-36. Rising from 41-39, “I Did It” is still moving for DJ Khaled with Post Malone, Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Baby and DaBaby. As individual artists, this single marks their 12th, 14th, fifth, first and fourth top 40 hits, respectively. Polo G also takes his recent #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 into the top 40 on the pop radio list, as “Rapstar” advances from 44-40. It’s his first top 40 hit here, though he’s had plenty on both the Rhythmic and Urban charts.

Two new songs enter the top 50 this week: TikTok star and chart newcomer Bella Poarch comes in at #46 with her viral hit “Build A Bitch”, while Em starts without a bullet at #48 with “Say What You Mean”.

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. For your butter-flavored bounce up the pop radio chart, here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

LIFE’S A PEACH: Justin Bieber scores a second week at #1 on the Top 40 chart with Daniel Caesar and GIVĒON-assisted “Peaches”. The collaboration also remains atop the chart at the Rhythmic format for a second week.

Five new singles reach the top 40 this week, with the latest single from BTS leading the way with a high debut at #27. “Butter” is their eighth top 40 hit at the format, six of which were credited for their full run and the seventh coming last year when “Savage Love” hit the top spot for Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo in a remixed form. With a likely #1 album coming in Sour next week, Olivia Rodrigo leaps into the top 40 at #36 with “Good 4 U”, her third chart hit from the set. Newcomers Mimi Webb and Sara Kays lift into their top 40 with their first hits to date, respectively: the former’s “Good Without” is up from 44-38, while the latter’s “Remember That Night?” rises from 41-39. Finally, up 45-40 this week, NF returns with his fifth top 40 hit at the format in “Just Like You”.

In the top 50, we have another three entries: at #42, Majid Jordan swims onto the pop list with “Waves Of Blue”. At #45, it’s Marshmello and the Jonas Brothers with “Leave Before You Love Me”, which impacts at both the Hot AC and Top 40 formats this week. Finally, at #49 on the list, Cheat Codes and Tinashe are in with “Lean On Me”, which is unrelated to the song of the same title that became a major hit for Bill Withers in 1972 and Club Nouveau in 1987.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (April 18, 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. Some golden goods are shining on the survey, so here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

TATE AT THE PLATE: As baseball begins to dominate the TV, Tate McRae hits a home run with “You Broke Me First”, which climbs 4-1. The enduring hit scores the top spot after 28 innings… uh, rather, weeks on the chart, making it the slowest run to the top of the pop chart by a female artist. “You” finished only 92 spins ahead of The Weeknd‘s “Save Your Tears”, which advances from 3-2 and will inevitably park at the summit soon.

Singer GIVĒON, who you can find in a featured spot on Justin Bieber‘s “Peaches”, lifts from 41-38 with “Heartbreak Anniversary”. It’s his second top 40 hit to date, which comes as “Peaches” leaps from 13-11. Meanwhile, Kali Uchis also climbs from 44-39 on this week’s list with “Telepatía”, which is her first top 40 hit. It’s one of the many recent songs on the survey to move from a breakout on TikTok to the pop chart.

Four new releases check into the top 50 this week, led by Demi Lovato and Ariana Grande at #44 with “Met Him Last Night”. Lovato has now landed in the top 50 twice in April, as “Dancing With The Devil” (now replaced with “Met”) entered and peaked at #40 two weeks ago. It also continues Grande’s hot streak at the format, as she looks to hold four simultaneous positions in the top 40 next week. A bit further down the list, Sofia Carson is in at #46 with “Fool’s Gold”, with newcomer Annika Wells gliding in at #49 with “Sucks Being Sober”. The last of the new songs in the top 50 is by a labelmate of Wells: AJ Mitchell, who gets going with “Stop” in the #50 spot.
