ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (May 14, 2019)

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: Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber collaborate on one dynamite release, as the overall numbers slow down a bit due to a lack of competition. Let’s add ’em up:

“DON’T” TOUCHES THAT DIAL: After a pair of perfect weeks here at the format, “I Don’t Care” by Sheeran and Bieber makes it three, picking up adds at all 184 stations on the Top 40 panel this Tuesday. It’s the first perfect week for both artists. The track is now the fifth song in the Mediabase era and the sixth in the plays-per-week era on the pop survey to accomplish this feat. It landed just outside the top 20 on last Sunday’s published chart and should be well into the top 15 by this coming weekend’s chart. “I Don’t Care” also topped the adds results at Hot AC radio yesterday, picking up another 90 stations there.

Of this week’s other impacting titles, newcomer Christian Paul‘s “Strong” is in with a solid 18 stations and a third place finish. In a fifth place tie with 12 stations, Kygo and Rita Ora‘s “Carry On” is off to a slightly weaker start. A number of proven singles from artists like AJ MitchellLizzo and Panic! At The Disco make up the rest of the top ten on the latest update.

Next week, look for Halsey‘s “Nightmare” to scare up some major adds from the panel. Who will join her? Stay tuned.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP FIVE (SEVEN)
1. ED SHEERAN & JUSTIN BIEBER, “I Don’t Care” (Atlantic-Def Jam)
2. BILLIE EILISH, “Bad Guy” (Darkroom/Interscope)
3. CHRISTIAN PAUL, “Strong” (12Tone/SRP)
4. MAX featuring QUINN XCII, “Love Me Less” (Arista/RED)
5. DADDY YANKEE & KATY PERRY featuring SNOW, “Con Calma” (El Cartel/UMLE/Capitol)
5-T. KYGO & RITA ORA, “Carry On” (Palm Tree/RCA)
5-T. LIZZO, “Juice” (Atlantic)

(Due to a lack of activity this week, a full report will return next week.)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 30, 2019)

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: some collaboration called “ME!” manages to put up, you know, a few adds here and there. Nothing historic or anything… alright, maybe it’s a tad bigger than that. Let’s add ’em up:

GET “ME” TO THE TOP: A huge congratulations to Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie, who easily claim the top spot on the log with “ME!”, picking up an add at every station (184 of them) on the current Top 40 panel. It marks the fourth time in the history of the plays-per-week era that this event has occurred at the format, three of which have come in the last three years. Swift previously pulled off the feat in 2017 with “Look What You Made Me Do”, which started at 187 stations at the time. Needless to say, the song’s quick start definitely makes it a contender for the Song Of The Summer, with a likely run at #1 coming in the not-so-distant future.

Beyond that lofty achievement for Swift and Urie, a single by Martin Garrix with Macklemore and Patrick Stump has a good start in the runner-up position with a total of 48 stations on impact. “Summer Days” will be absolutely perfect for the season that’ll be here before you know it. Juice WRLD is also in the mix with a cut that’s already receiving a solid amount of airplay at both the Rhythmic and Urban radio formats, “Hear Me Calling”. It earns 26 stations in its first full week, enough to land in fifth place.

Repeated (and very active) titles from acts like Billie Eilish, Dan + Shay, Khalid and Lizzo make up the rest of the top ten.

Next week, we’ll be coloring the adds report with some BLACKPINK. Stay tuned to see how “Kill This Love” performs.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. TAYLOR SWIFT featuring BRENDON URIE, “ME!” (Republic)
2. MARTIN GARRIX featuring MACKLEMORE & PATRICK STUMP, “Summer Days” (RCA)
3. BILLIE EILISH, “Bad Guy” (Darkroom/Interscope)
4. DADDY YANKEE & KATY PERRY featuring SNOW, “Con Calma” (El Cartel/UMLE/Capitol)
5-T. JUICE WRLD, “Hear Me Calling” (Grade A/Interscope)
5-T. KHALID, “Talk” (RCA)
7-T. DAN + SHAY, “Speechless” (Warner Bros.)
7-T. LIZZO, “Juice” (Atlantic)
9. BTS featuring HALSEY, “Boy With Luv” (BigHit/Columbia)
10. BAZZI, “Paradise” (Artist Partner/Atlantic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 23, 2019)

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: Daddy Yankee, Katy Perry and Snow freeze out the competition here, but there are plenty of newcomers skiing their way through an icy top ten. Put on some mittens and let’s add ’em up:

“CON” HAS ITS PROS: The rapper named Snow hasn’t appeared in the top 40 at the format in almost 26 years, but the forecast sure is calling for a blizzard at pop radio this summer. His 1993 classic “Informer” is sampled on “Con Calma”, a collaboration with Daddy Yankee and Katy Perry, which claims the Most Added title at Top 40 radio this week, starting with 87 stations on impact. At Rhythmic radio, it adds another 14 stations to its total. Both Yankee and Perry have history at #1 on the Top 40 list, with Perry’s #1 streak being significantly larger, though Snow’s signature hit spent a week at #2, narrowly missing the top spot. We’ll see if this cut can inform a wider audience in the annual fight for the Song of the Summer. It’ll be a tough one once again.

Also entering the game this week, SZA, The Weeknd and Travis Scott have a powerful start for “Power Is Power”, a track taken off the compilation For The Throne: Music Inspired By The HBO Series Game of Thrones. The collaboration earns 37 stations and a second place finish, as well as 38 stations and the Most Added title on the Rhythmic radio log. Additionally, Dan + Shay score a solid fourth place entry with “Speechless”, their latest Country radio crossover, which picks up 29 new stations this week.

Next week, it’s all about a singer named Taylor Swift. Heard of her? We think she’s an emerging artist to watch…

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. DADDY YANKEE & KATY PERRY featuring SNOW, “Con Calma” (El Cartel/UMLE/Capitol)
2. SZA, THE WEEKND & TRAVIS SCOTT, “Power Is Power” (Columbia)
3. BTS featuring HALSEY, “Boy With Luv” (BigHit/Columbia)
4. DAN + SHAY, “Speechless” (Warner Bros.)
5. KHALID, “Talk” (RCA)
6. BILLIE EILISH, “Bad Guy” (Darkroom/Interscope)
7-T. BAZZI, “Paradise” (Artist Partner/Atlantic)
7-T. JENNIFER LOPEZ featuring FRENCH MONTANA, “Medicine” (HITCO)
9. TRAVIS SCOTT featuring THE WEEKND, “Wake Up” (Epic-Republic)
10. MAX featuring QUINN XCII, “Love Me Less” (Arista/RED)

RADIO REPORT: What’s Popping At Top 40 Radio This Week (April 22-23, 2019)

It’s time once again to analyze the airwaves and find out if your favorite new releases will be lighting up your local station’s playlist this week. Which tunes will climb to the top and which ones will hit a stop? Here’s a set of six impacting songs this week at the Top 40 format:

BAZZI – “Paradise” (Artist Partner/Atlantic)
Album: TBA (2019)
Past T40 History: Last July, Bazzi led his first chart single “Mine” to the top for a week. Will this song earn him his second #1 hit?

DADDY YANKEE & KATY PERRY featuring SNOW – “Con Calma” (UMLE/Capitol)
Album: TBA (2019)
Past T40 History: Heavily sampling Snow’s “Informer”, this cut marks the rapper’s first appearance on the survey since July 1993.

DAN + SHAY – “Speechless” (Warner Bros.)
Album: Dan + Shay (2018)
Past T40 History: With another former #1 track at the Country radio format, we’ll see if this duo can make it 2-for-2 on this chart.

MAX featuring QUINN XCII – “Love Me Less” (Arista/RED)
Album: TBA (2019)
Past T40 History: MAX’s “Lights Down Low” spent over a year in the top 40 before it eventually made the top ten, climbing to #7.

OBB – “7 Billion” (Curb-Word)
Album: TBA (2019)
Past T40 History: These three guys are new to the format. The last Curb release to reach the top 50 here was almost ten years ago.

SZA, THE WEEKND & TRAVIS SCOTT – “Power Is Power” (Columbia)
Album: For The Throne: Music Inspired By Game Of Thrones (Soundtrack) (2019)
Past T40 History: With more than a dozen top 40 titles between them, the soundtrack single should have a powerful impact week.

Next week: two words. Taylor Swift. That is all. (We’ll see if anyone else dares to impact on the date soon.)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 5, 2019)

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: Brothers, can you spare a hit? The return of the Jonas Brothers has the pop world shook, as plenty of other new records reach the lower rungs of the top ten. Let’s add ’em up:

BROTHERS IN CHARMS: Welcome back, Jonas Brothers! The group’s first single since 2013, “Sucker”, received a massive 153 adds on impact, easily securing the top spot on this week’s adds report at the format. This is trio’s biggest one-week total to date. It should be a quick ride up the chart for the guys, whose release stormed into the top 30 after just two days of airplay. Their highest-charting tune to date on the Top 40 chart, “Burnin’ Up”, spent two weeks at #12 in August 2008. Will their seventh top 40 entry be the one that finally enters the top ten? Stay tuned, suckers!

With his follow-up to “Girls”, which peaked at #38 a few months back, AJ Mitchell lands in fifth place this week with a total of 23 stations for “All My Friends”. Following just behind him with one fewer station, Galantis and OneRepublic are in sixth place, as “Bones” shows some strength with the panel. Look for both songs to reach the top 50 in the next week or two.

Next week, look for the Benny Blanco collaboration “I Can’t Get Enough”, which features Tainy, Selena Gomez and J Balvin, to rule the report. (It just missed the top ten this week.) Also on the schedule: cool new songs from Andy Grammer, James Bay featuring Julia Michaels and Lauv with Troye Sivan.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (ELEVEN)
1. JONAS BROTHERS, “Sucker” (Republic)
2. THE CHAINSMOKERS featuring 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Who Do You Love” (Disruptor/Columbia)
3. BEBE REXHA, “Last Hurrah” (Warner Bros.)
4. LIL PEEP & ILOVEMAKONNEN featuring FALL OUT BOY, “I’ve Been Waiting” (Columbia)
5. AJ MITCHELL, “All My Friends” (Epic)
6. GALANTIS featuring ONEREPUBLIC, “Bones” (Big Beat/EMG)
7. BILLIE EILISH, “When The Party’s Over” (Darkroom/Interscope)
8-T. PANIC! AT THE DISCO, “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” (Fueled By Ramen/EMG)
8-T. ZEDD & KATY PERRY, “365” (Interscope-Capitol)
