ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (February 20, 2018)

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: boys and bops make the pop world spin, including the current songs from singer Niall Horan and boy band Why Don’t We. You ask, why don’t we begin in our recap? Good point! Let’s add ’em up:

DUCK DUCK “LOOSE”: While proven hits from acts like Drake, Imagine Dragons and Justin Timberlake continue to get significant action from the panel, this week’s most notable impacting single comes from One Direction soloist Niall Horan and the fourth single off his album Flicker. “On The Loose”, which is not a hot Saga remake for those 80’s fans out there, scores with a solid 56 adds in its official first week, good for the Most Added title at the format. Interestingly, Horan’s new track didn’t impact at the Hot AC format in a simultaneous release, where he’s arguably been more successful than on the Top 40 airwaves. However, it’s bound to be embraced by the Hot AC panel pretty quickly, so stay tuned to PGTC’s social feeds to see how it does there soon.

Also impacting here, “Mad Love”, a collaboration from Sean PaulDavid Guetta and Becky G, and “Trust Fund Baby”, the new one from Why Don’t We, make a big splash on the adds report, tied with 24 adds and a fourth place ranking. The latter release is already in the top 50 at the format, which should make the top 40 (becoming their second song to reach the region) in the next few weeks. Next week, look for a pair of songs further down in this week’s top ten, Dua Lipa‘s “IDGAF” (19 adds, tied for eighth place) and Bazzi‘s “Mine” (18 adds, tenth place), to rank toward the top of the list, as they officially impact. How will they do against acts like AJR and Mackenzie Nicole? Come back next Tuesday to see the results.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. NIALL HORAN, “On The Loose” (Capitol)
2. JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE featuring CHRIS STAPLETON, “Say Something” (RCA)
3. MARSHMELLO & ANNE-MARIE, “Friends” (Warner Bros.)
4-T. DRAKE, “God’s Plan” (YMCMB/Republic)
4-T. SEAN PAUL & DAVID GUETTA featuring BECKY G, “Mad Love” (Island/Republic)
4-T. WHY DON’T WE, “Trust Fund Baby” (Atlantic)
7. IMAGINE DRAGONS, “Whatever It Takes” (KIDinaKORNER/Interscope)
8-T. DUA LIPA, “IDGAF” (Warner Bros.)
8-T. FOSTER THE PEOPLE, “Sit Next To Me” (Columbia)
10. BAZZI, “Mine” (APG/Atlantic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (February 13, 2018)

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: several of last week’s fierce competitors have their eye on #1, while plenty of impacting releases, including cuts from Imagine Dragons and a collaboration from Marshmello and Anne-Marie, want to crash the party. Let’s add it all up:

“SOMETHING” TO TALK ABOUT: After his chart-topping debut for Man Of The Woods on the newest Billboard 200, Justin Timberlake leads yet another list, this week’s adds report at the Top 40 format, for “Say Something”, the second pop radio single from the project. (“Supplies” never officially went for adds, though it was in the top 50 for a few weeks.) The single, which features country star Chris Stapleton, takes in another 70 adds during the session. Stapleton is hoping to reach #1 on the country airplay list within the next few weeks with his latest hit there, “Broken Halos”.

Below the top spot on the list, “Friends” has an impressive debut for Marshmello and Anne-Marie, reacting with 46 stations on impact, good for second place this week. The DJ/producer is currently on a hot streak with the Top 40 audience, still way up in the top ten with a collaboration with Selena Gomez titled “Wolves”, while his lead vocalist, who collaborated with Clean Bandit on “Rockabye” last year, is still relatively new to this format. Rockers Imagine Dragons also score with their current crossover from the Alternative airwaves called “Whatever It Takes”, placing fourth with 41 stations on impact. It follows “Thunder”, which spent a week at #1 in November on the pop chart.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE featuring CHRIS STAPLETON, “Say Something” (RCA)
2. MARSHMELLO & ANNE-MARIE, “Friends” (Warner Bros.)
3. THE WEEKND & KENDRICK LAMAR, “Pray For Me” (Interscope-Republic)
4. IMAGINE DRAGONS, “Whatever It Takes” (KIDinaKORNER/Interscope)
5. ZEDD, MAREN MORRIS & GREY, “The Middle” (Interscope)
6. DRAKE, “God’s Plan” (YMCMB/Republic)
7. WHY DON’T WE, “Trust Fund Baby” (Atlantic)
8. TROYE SIVAN, “My My My!” (Capitol)
9. FOSTER THE PEOPLE, “Sit Next To Me” (Columbia)
10. BAZZI, “Mine” (APG/Atlantic)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (February 11, 2018)

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. While you were watching a curling match at the Olympics, I was curling up on the couch to look at some pop stats. So, be a good sport and check out all the good music below:

ALL IN DUA TIME: No new song at the top this Sunday, but there is a “New” song that once again holds at #1. Dua Lipa‘s “New Rules” just won’t let go, and becomes her label’s first three-week chart-topper at the format since 2013. As mentioned last week, the nearest bulleted entry below #1, Charlie Puth‘s “How Long”, is still 3,400 spins away from unseating whomever may be at the top, though it rises from 5-3 this week. Lipa’s smash becomes her first top ten on the Hot AC chart this week, up a single notch to #10. It also sits just below the top ten on the Rhythmic survey, where it also climbs just one spot to #12. “New” recently topped a giant 650 million streams on Spotify for its main version, while its music video should be over the one billion (!) mark very soon.

A “BABY” CHANGES EVERYTHING: There’s relatively little action in the lower rungs of this week’s top 50, though it’s a pretty great week for Justin Timberlake‘s newest single “Say Something”, featuring Chris Stapleton, which soars from 46-32. “Say” is now the 30th solo top 40 hit at the format for Timberlake, while Stapleton, whose work is primarily known at the Country format, is in with his first appearance. Another soloist, Kent Jones, leads a two-pack of debuts in the top 50, dancing in at #47 with the track that could become his second big hit: “Merengue”. The singer last showed off his moves in 2016 with “Don’t Mind”, which spent two weeks at #8 that July. Another act looking for their second top 40 single comes in at #50: popular boy band Why Don’t We is new with “Trust Fund Baby”. Last September and October, the group spent three weeks at #33 with “Something Different”. Their newest chart song was co-written by Ed Sheeran, who sits at #2 once more with “Perfect”, and is featured on Taylor Swift‘s “End Game” at #13 and Eminem‘s “River” at #20.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (February 6, 2018)

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: The Weeknd and Kendrick Lamar pray to the pop gods and receive a nice answer in return, while Justin Timberlake and Chris Stapleton say the words and bask in some magical momentum. It’s not the iHeartSummit, but we’re climbing toward that summit of hearts, as we add it all up:

READY FOR THE WEEKND: The anticipation for the film Black Panther is building, and the charts are full of songs off the set that accompanies the movie, due to be released this Friday. The first single to hit the Top 40 format from it, “Pray For Me”, is a big collaboration from The Weeknd and Kendrick Lamar. Unsurprisingly, a big track deserves some big numbers, and it becomes this week’s Most Added song at the format with a giant 126 stations on impact. Lamar curated the entire soundtrack, and serves in several other writing and production roles, in addition to his handful of vocal performances on the album. “Pray” also top the adds reports at the Rhythmic (68 stations) and Urban (55 stations) formats, clearing a significant portion of those panels (much like the result here.)

Meanwhile, following the mixed reviews for his halftime show, Justin Timberlake also smashes the the runner-up spot with the third release from Man Of The Woods: the Chris Stapleton-assisted “Say Something”. It scores a plentiful 62 stations on impact. Timberlake didn’t actually perform the tune during his Super Bowl medley, though it remains his top song on most digital services at the moment. Man is expected to debut at #1 on next week’s Billboard 200 chart, displacing Migos‘s Culture II. New songs from Iggy Azalea featuring Quavo (16 stations), Kent Jones (15 stations) and Why Don’t We (10 stations) make the top ten for the first time, and you can hear/watch them below!

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. THE WEEKND & KENDRICK LAMAR, “Pray For Me” (Interscope-Republic)
2. JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE featuring CHRIS STAPLETON, “Say Something” (RCA)
3. ZEDD, MAREN MORRIS & GREY, “The Middle” (Interscope)
4. JACK & JACK, “Beg” (Island/Republic)
5. DRAKE, “God’s Plan” (YMCMB/Republic)
6. TROYE SIVAN, “My My My!” (Capitol)
7. IGGY AZALEA featuring QUAVO, “Savior” (Island/Republic)
8. KENT JONES, “Merengue” (We The Best/Epic)
9. KESHA featuring THE DAP-KINGS HORNS, “Woman” (RCA)
10. WHY DON’T WE, “Trust Fund Baby” (Atlantic)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (February 4, 2018)

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. Never fear! If football isn’t your thing, we’re here to give you all the touchdowns from the weekly Super Bowl of pop! Here’s the score from those top 40 tunes galore:

RULING THE SURVEY: It’s two weeks at the top for recent Saturday Night Live performer Dua Lipa and her pop smash “New Rules”, taken from her self-titled album. “New” is also up 12-11 and 14-13 on the Hot AC and Rhythmic lists, respectively, and lands just below the top 30 on the AC survey, where I’m sure some soccer moms will be twerking to it soon enough. (Everybody can enjoy a bop, regardless of age.) Though the song is no longer in positive territory, losing about 400 spins from last week, it could repeat at #1 for a third week: the nearest bulleted song, Charlie Puth‘s “How Long”, is still 4,900 spins away at #5. Check back next Sunday to see what happens!

READY FOR THE WEEKND: After launching via iHeartMedia’s hourly integration program on Friday, a third radio single from the highly-anticipated soundtrack to Black Panther secures a high entry on the Top 40 list way up at #32. “Pray For Me” teams The Weeknd and Kendrick Lamar, giving both artists their ninth respective top 40 hit at the format. The other two releases from the set so far, “All The Stars” by Lamar and SZA and “King’s Dead” by Jay Rock, Lamar, Future and James Blake, are gaining quite a bit of ground on the Rhythmic and Urban formats, though it’s unclear whether they’ll cross to Top 40 or not. Four spots lower, the 22nd top 40 song for Drake rolls in at #36. “God’s Plan” is one of two tracks the performer released on a double a-side single called Scary Hours, with “Plan” recently entering at #1 on the newest Billboard Hot 100 update. The song broke several streaming records upon release, and continues to perform well at all digital platforms. Duo Jack & Jack also step a hefty eight notches to #40 to grab their first top 40 hit with “Beg”. In the last week, this song picked up notable support from a majority of Cumulus Media stations on the panel, which is responsible for chain-wide adds rather than fully localized programming.

Yet another single from Justin Timberlake‘s future #1 album, Man Of The Woods, comes in at #46. “Say Something” features the recent Grammy winner Chris Stapleton, and it’s already rising on the Hot AC list, soaring 34-22 this week. Back on Top 40, you’ll find lead single “Filthy” up a notch to #14, losing its bullet, while “Supplies”, the current Rhythmic and Urban single, stays at #47. A newcomer to the Top 40 format, 26-year-old actress and singer Hayley Kiyoko, has her chart debut at #49 with an inquisitive pop banger called “Curious”. It’s the first radio single from her upcoming set, Expectations, due March 30. Meanwhile, last week’s #1 on the Rhythmic chart finally reaches the top 50 here: “Sky Walker”, by Miguel featuring Travis Scott, walking tall at #50. Though it probably won’t do much on these airwaves, it’s good to see the track officially chart, given how long it spent just below the region.
