ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 10, 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: Demi Lovato empowers the panel with her latest hit, while several other titles are truckin’ into the top ten. Let’s add ’em up:

“ME” TIME: The return of Demi Lovato has given us an emotional ballad in “Anyone” and the bold pop anthem “I Love Me”, this week’s top song on the adds report at Top 40 radio. It starts with 152 stations on impact, which compliments its haul of 27 stations at the Hot AC format yesterday, where it also ranked in first place. After debuting at #30 on the most recent published update, this tune is looking bound for the top ten, which would give the performer her highest-charting entry in more than two years here.

New releases by 5 Seconds Of Summer and Bryce Vine also managed to pull in some great adds this week. Both “Old Me” and “Baby Girl” tied for a second place finish with 33 stations during the session. The two singles should easily land in the top 50 in the next couple of weeks. Breland‘s recent viral song “My Truck” also drives into the top ten for the first time, placing seventh with 13 more stations coming in this week. This past Sunday, the tune officially parked in the top 50 at the Rhythmic radio format.

Charting songs from Doja Cat, Lady Gaga and Surfaces are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

The TikTok crowd has already gone wild for emerging songs from Benee and Sam Fischer, so we’ll see how they do next week at the format. Will anyone else join the impact party? Stay tuned.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. DEMI LOVATO, “I Love Me” (Island/Republic)
2-T. 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Old Me” (Interscope)
2-T. BRYCE VINE, “Baby Girl” (Sire/Warner)
4. SURFACES, “Sunday Best” (10K Projects/Capitol)
5. DOJA CAT, “Say So” (Kemosabe/RCA)
6. LAUV, “Modern Loneliness” (AWAL/in2une)
7. BRELAND, “My Truck” (Bad Realm/Atlantic)
8. REGARD, “Ride It” (Epic)
9-T. BROCKHAMPTON, “Sugar” (Question Everything/RCA)
9-T. LADY GAGA, “Stupid Love” (Interscope)

Lady Gaga has the week’s Biggest Mover with “Stupid Love”, climbing from 30-20 in its second week in the top 40. Two new songs also enter on the survey this week, both of which were released in the last few days: “I Love Me” by Demi Lovato at #35 and “Gaslighter” by the Dixie Chicks at #39.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (March 1, 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. This week’s report is a very special birthday edition, as PGTC’s own Adam turns 30! For some musical gifts, here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

“DON’T” GO ANYWHERE: Dua Lipa spends a second week at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart with “Don’t Start Now”, as it scores new airplay at six different radio formats this week. The track continues to hold at #5 and #8 on the Dance and Hot AC radio charts, respectively. Lipa’s Future Nostalgia album is due April 3. Another track from the album, “Physical”, continues to move through the lower rungs of the top 100 from early airplay in major markets.

This week’s chart is all about two highly-anticipated songs that start in the top 30 in their first week on the survey. The higher of the two is “The Other Side”, a collaboration from SZA and Justin Timberlake, which bows at #27. Taken from the Trolls World Tour soundtrack, it’s the fifth top 40 song at the format for SZA and the 32nd appearance as a solo artist for Timberlake. Just below them at #29, Lady Gaga returns with “Stupid Love”, becoming her 20th top 40 song to date. The video for it has been seen more than 18 million times on YouTube since debuting on Friday. Both singles will be competing for the Most Added title on Tuesday; stay tuned.

Beyond the action for those two surging releases, Lauv‘s “Modern Loneliness” and Conan Gray‘s “Maniac” also enter the top 50 at #48 and #49, respectively. The former’s new chart entry was the Most Added single at the format on Tuesday. The latter’s new entry is his first to reach the top 50. Both performers are releasing new albums during the month of March.
