ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 11, 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: Miley Cyrus adds to the Top 40 family during a slower week on the adds report. Let’s add ’em up:

SHE IS COMING… TO POP RADIO: Cyrus’s “Mother’s Daughter”, from her EP titled She Is Coming, grabs 49 stations during its impact week and the freedom to become the Most Added song at the Top 40 format this Tuesday. That total is much lower than some of the triple digit finishes we’ve seen in recent weeks, though the cut is still its on way towards the top 50 for the official chart on Sunday. The full EP registered a top ten debut on the most recent update of the Billboard 200 list.

Much of the rest of the top ten is filled with familiar names, including Ally Brooke and Lizzo, though individual adds totals for a lot of songs trailed off beyond the top five. For instance, six songs tied for tenth place with a meager seven adds, which is fairly low for that position. Alas, these kinds of weeks occasionally happen…

Next week, impacting releases from LIVVIA and Tove Lo, as well as the current Alternative chart single from Illenium and Jon Bellion, join the pop parade.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP FIVE
1. MILEY CYRUS, “Mother’s Daughter” (RCA)
2. LIZZO, “Truth Hurts” (Atlantic)
3. THE CHAINSMOKERS featuring BEBE REXHA, “Call You Mine” (Disruptor/Columbia)
4. MARK RONSON featuring CAMILA CABELLO, “Find U Again” (RCA)
5. ALLY BROOKE featuring A BOOGIE WIT DA HOODIE, “Lips Don’t Lie” (Latium/Atlantic)

(The full list should be back next week, provided that the adds totals at the bottom of the top ten are back to normal.)

Chart Notes:

  • As Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie‘s “ME!” holds at the top for a second week and Katy Perry‘s “Never Really Over” soars from 28-15 to get the Biggest Mover title, there are three new songs in the countdown, two by groups that have previously reached the top. The highest, landing at #34, is the first chart entry in just over five years for the English quartet Keane. “The Way I Feel” marks their 17th top 40 single since the fall of 2004 when they first entered with “Somewhere Only We Know”, which reached #7. The group’s “Silenced By The Night”, their sole chart-topper to date, spent four weeks at the summit in 2012. American acts X Ambassadors and OneRepublic also score their latest top 40 songs at #37 and #40, respectively, with “Hold You Down” and “Rescue Me”. Though the former act has made the top five without hitting the top, the latter’s been to #1 once: they spent three weeks there in December 2007 and January 2008 with the Timbaland-assisted “Apologize”.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 4, 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: it’s a Perry pop party, as Katy Perry‘s latest single blasts to the top of the list and leads a top three full of hot impacting titles. Let’s add ’em up:

A “REALLY” GOOD START: Just ten stations away from clearing the whole panel, Katy Perry easily earns the Most Added title on this week’s Top 40 report with “Never Really Over”, securing 173 stations on impact. This total is one station less than her Skip Marley-assisted “Chained To The Rhythm” earned in its first week back in February 2017, which spent two weeks at #8 that April before quickly crashing off the survey after 14 total weeks. “Never” made its debut in the top 30 last Sunday and should easily blast into the top 20 by the weekend.

Two collaborations nearly tied for second place, but “Call You Mine” from The Chainsmokers featuring Bebe Rexha earned 66 stations in the session, just one add ahead of third place entry “Find U Again” from Mark Ronson and Camila Cabello. Both of these songs will easily score notable debuts on Sunday night’s update: “Call” has the edge for a move into the top 40 at this point.

Elsewhere in the top ten, you’ll find more music from 5 Seconds Of Summer, Ally Brooke, Lizzo, SHAED and others.

Next week, Russ‘s “Civil War” battles for a spot in the top ten, but more warriors await him on the battlefield. Stay tuned!

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. KATY PERRY, “Never Really Over” (Capitol)
2. THE CHAINSMOKERS featuring BEBE REXHA, “Call You Mine” (Disruptor/Columbia)
3. MARK RONSON featuring CAMILA CABELLO, “Find U Again” (RCA)
4. ED SHEERAN featuring CHANCE THE RAPPER and PNB ROCK, “Cross Me” (Atlantic)
5. LIZZO, “Truth Hurts” (Atlantic)
6. ALLY BROOKE featuring A BOOGIE WIT DA HOODIE, “Lips Don’t Lie” (Latium/Atlantic)
7. 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Easier” (Interscope)
8. DJ KHALED featuring SZA, “Just Us” (We The Best/Epic)
9. SHAED, “Trampoline” (Photo Finish/Caroline)
10. BILLIE EILISH, “Bad Guy” (Darkroom/Interscope)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 2, 2019)

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. Want some splashy June tunes? We have so many jumping into the chart waters these days. For all the latest info, let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

THEY’RE BACK, SUCKERS: After two weeks out of the top spot, “Sucker” by Jonas Brothers returns to #1 for a fifth week. It’s not unusual to see this kind of thing happen at the format now: this is the sixth time since the spring of 2016 that a single has earned at least a week at the top, fallen out for one week or more and then re-emerged at the summit. The band’s “Cool” has also received its second wind, moving from 15-14 with a larger gain in spins after appearing to stall out for the second half of May. With the trio’s new Happiness Begins album due on Friday, look for more smiles to pop up soon. (Feel free to fangirl like it’s 2008.)

Katy Perry earns this week’s Highest Debut at #29 with her 27th top 40 hit, “Never Really Over”. Perry is also featured on the song that moves up a notch to #17 this week: a remix of “Con Calma” by Daddy Yankee and Snow. “Never” also jumps in at #24 on this week’s Hot AC update, with more minor airplay at a handful of other formats. Lizzo soars from 47-33 with “Truth Hurts”, becoming her second top 40 hit at the format. “Juice”, her first entry at the format, has been pulled in favor of the surging “Truth”. It peaked at #25 two weeks ago. DJ Khaled and SZA also start their top 40 run here with “Just Us”, climbing from 42-36. This is the ninth tune from the former and the fourth for the latter to reach the region.

This week’s one new top 50 entry sneaks in at #50: “Carry On” is the first collaboration from Kygo and Rita Ora. The track is taken from the film Pokémon Detective Pikachu and is the first Pokémon-affiliated title to reach the chart in nearly 20 years.

Chart Notes:

  • Earning a record-breaking ninth #1 single on my personal chart, Taylor Swift‘s “ME!” (featuring Brendon Urie) rises from 2-1 this week. It’s the first track to be released from her forthcoming album, due sometime later this year. Urie also ranks at #1 for the second week in a row: “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” by his band Panic! At The Disco, last week’s chart-topper, drops to #3. Further down, Swift’s one-time rival Katy Perry earns this week’s Highest Debut at #28 with “Never Really Over”, which also scores a splashy top 30 debut on the Hot AC and Top 40 charts. Its entry marks Perry’s first song to appear in my top 40 this year, though her collaborations with Daddy Yankee and Zedd received solid airplay at several radio formats in the last few months. Also checking in with a notable debut at #32, “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” brings the legendary Elton John back to the top 40 with newcomer Taron Egerton, who portrays John in the new movie Rocketman. In the process, John, who is now 72, becomes one of the oldest performers to enter my list: he’s about six months younger than Rod Stewart was when his updated version of “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy” (with DNCE) debuted in September 2017. Finally, at #40, P!nk and Chris Stapleton make the top 40 with a hit off the former’s album Hurts 2B Human called “Love Me Anyway”. The song is receiving airplay from several stations on the Country radio panel.

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.)
