RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (March 20, 2022)

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. Don’t lose sight of these emerging records…

X-TRA TIME: Five weeks ago, Lil Nas X led the Top 40 radio chart with “That’s What I Want”, his third consecutive #1 hit from the album Montero. Now, it returns to the top for a second nonconsecutive week. All three cuts have now spent a combined total of five weeks at the top spot since July of last year.

In the top 40, “Don’t Forget My Love” jumps from 43-37 for Diplo and Miguel, taken from the former’s self-titled release. It’s the ninth solo credit for Diplo in the top 40, while Miguel earns his sixth entry into the region. Mimi Webb heats up from 42-38 with “House On Fire”, the second top 40 entry for the singer in under a year. It recently reached the top ten in both the U.K. and Ireland. Iann Dior climbs from 44-39 with “Let You”, also marking his second top 40 hit at the format. Lastly, Jena Rose lifts from 41-40 with “Checkmate”, her first top 40 song.

From HBO’s Euphoria, “I’m Tired” is in at #41 on the chart, as Labrinth and Zendaya enter with their first collaboration together. The duo Lawrence debuts at #44 with “Don’t Lose Sight”, which was recently heard in a Microsoft commercial. Ylona Garcia entertains the format at #46 with “Entertain Me”, while Yung Bleu and Kehlani decorate with #48 spot with “Beautiful Lies”, a recent #1 single on the Rhythmic radio chart.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 20, 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. Everybody’s working for the weekend chart update, so let’s hit the list and check out what’s popping at the format:

DUA IT AGAIN: For the second week in a row, Dua Lipa lands at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart with “Levitating”, finishing a bit over 2,000 spins ahead of the song at #2. “Levitating” also leads the chart at the Hot AC format for a second week and remains active in the top ten at AC radio.

Tai Verdes has the only new song in the top 40 with “A-O-K”, leaping from 45-39. It’s his first top 40 hit at the format. The single entered at #30 on the Alternative radio chart last week due to a new music integration program, but falls out of the region on the current update.

A massive six new tunes enter the top 50 at the format, led by Tate McRae and Khalid with “Working” in the #43 spot. The collaboration is one of several impacting singles this coming Tuesday. Latin star Bad Bunny puts his new streaming hit onto the chart at #46, as “Yonaguni” (referring to a Japanese island) continues to build at radio in several major markets. Girl In Red starts at #47 with “Serotonin”, which holds at #7 on the Alternative radio chart. One of 2021’s top breakouts is in at #48 with her new entry: of course, Olivia Rodrigo with “Traitor”. A collaboration from T-Pain and Kehlani is next at #49: “I Like Dat”, which also likes being in the top 30 on the Rhythmic radio chart. Lastly, Area21 comes in at #50 with “La La La”, which returns DJ Martin Garrix to the pop chart. The track briefly made the top 40 at Alternative radio earlier this year.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (January 7, 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: Justin Bieber has a very tasty Top 40 recipe for the pop audience, as the panel dishes some big add totals for the first official impact date of 2020. Let’s add ’em up:

JUSTIN CASE YOU FORGOT: Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Justin Bieber is flying up the pop chart as a collaborator on Dan + Shay‘s “10,000 Hours” and with his own solo track “Yummy”, the latter of which leads the week’s Top 40 adds report with 178 stations coming in on impact. (That’s nine stations short of clearing the whole panel.) It also led the reports at the Hot AC, Rhythmic and Urban formats, earning nearly 365 stations in its first week across all formats in North America. Back at Top 40 radio, the song will cruise into the top 20 by Sunday’s published chart and could be a serious top ten record soon after that.

After some early action at the format, Camila Cabello‘s current single, the DaBaby-assisted “My Oh My”, makes a move into the runner-up spot on the report with 104 stations on impact. The Weeknd‘s “Blinding Lights” also brightens the top three on the log with 67 stations in its first full week, as “Heartless” continues to surge towards the top ten.

Charting songs from Billie Eilish, Doja Cat and Ed Sheeran are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

Following early add support for several weeks, Trevor Daniel‘s “Falling” will be the Tok of the panel when it impacts on Tuesday.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. JUSTIN BIEBER, “Yummy” (Def Jam)
2. CAMILA CABELLO featuring DABABY, “My Oh My” (Syco/Epic)
3. THE WEEKND, “Blinding Lights” (XO/Republic)
4. ED SHEERAN featuring CAMILA CABELLO & CARDI B, “South Of The Border” (Atlantic)
5. LEWIS CAPALDI, “Before You Go” (Capitol)
6. TREVOR DANIEL, “Falling” (Alamo/Interscope)
7. BILLIE EILISH, “Everything I Wanted” (Darkroom/Interscope)
8. DOJA CAT, “Juicy” (Kemosabe/RCA)
9-T. JOJI & JACKSON WANG (88RISING) featuring SWAE LEE & MAJOR LAZER, “Walking” (88rising/12Tone)
9-T. ZEDD & KEHLANI, “Good Thing” (Interscope)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 24, 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. “Good” times are ahead on the pop survey… are you ready for the latest top bops in the radio universe? Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

“GOOD” STUFF: It’s been a big breakout year for Lizzo and it just keeps getting better. This week, she earns her second #1 single on the Top 40 survey with “Good As Hell”, up 2-1. The multi-format hit also jumps from 8-7 and 18-15 on the Rhythmic and Hot AC radio lists, respectively. With a slow holiday week on the horizon, it should easily earn a second week at the top.

From TikTok to top 40 success, newcomer Arizona Zervas soars onto the survey all the way up at #33 with “Roxanne”, which also jumps right into the top 30 on the Rhythmic list. Another single that’s also been developing on the video app is “Make You Mine” by the new trio PUBLIC, which makes its entry with a move from 41-38. Zedd and Kehlani‘s “Good Thing” jumps from 50-39 on the chart, giving the two performers their 15th and fourth top 40 entries, respectively. Finally, up from 46-40, Louis Tomlinson takes “We Made It” into the region, earning him his third solo top 40 hit outside of One Direction.

Billie Eilish, who already appears in the top 20 with “All The Good Girls Go To Hell”, is in at #43 with “Everything I Wanted”. The tune was released as a one-off single last week and does not appear on her current studio album. “Checklist” checks in at #47 for the first collaboration by MAX and Chromeo, as Ed Sheeran, Camila Cabello and Cardi B are headed “South Of The Border” and into the #48 position. The latter collaboration impacts at the format in early December. It also enters the Hot AC chart at #49.

Have an amazing Thanksgiving from PGTC!

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 17, 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. The usual Post is ready to go, with plenty of fun facts from the pop survey. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

FULL CIRCLE MOMENT: Post Malone‘s “Circles” is the shape of this week’s #1 single at the Top 40 format, climbing from #2. It’s his fourth chart-topper to date and his second so far this year; “Wow” led the list for a week in June. Meanwhile, “Circles” is just outside the top ten on the Hot AC (#11) and Rhythmic (#12) radio charts this week. At this point, it’s unclear if the song will emerge at the top for a second week, as Lizzo‘s surging “Good As Hell” (up 4-2) could easily snatch the throne away.

Travis Scott‘s “Highest In The Room” leads three new top 40 entries on the list, as it rises from 44-36 to become his eighth top 40 hit at the format. Scott also appears as a featured artist on Post Malone‘s “Take What You Want”, which moves from 38-35. Going up from 42-38, Loud Luxury and Bryce Vine score their second and third top 40 songs, respectively, with “I’m Not Alright”. The single has already reached the top 20 on the Hot 100 in the duo’s native Canada. Charlie Puth is also moving in the right direction with his tenth top 40 entry, as “Mother” climbs from 45-40. It’s one spot higher on the Hot AC chart, giving Puth his ninth top track at that format.

This week’s top 50 action is led by One Direction member Louis Tomlinson‘s new single, “We Made It”, which debuts at #46. A new collaboration by the Black Eyed Peas and J Balvin is getting into the rhythm at #48. “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)”, which is featured on the soundtrack to the upcoming movie Bad Boys For Life, marks the band’s first tune on the pop chart in just over eight years. Lindsey Stirling and Elle King enter at #49 with “The Upside”, giving the former her first entry at the format, while Zedd and Kehlani have a “Good Thing” going at #50.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (November 12, 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: Zedd and Kehlani earned the strongest results of any impacting tune on the report, but does their good thing endure at the top? Let’s add ’em up:

ONE “GOOD” EVENING: After a tight race for most of the day, Zedd and Kehlani’s “Good Thing” edged ahead at the end with a nice first week total of 41 stations, just a handful of adds ahead of some established hits: Tones And I‘s “Dance Monkey” (40) and Dua Lipa‘s “Don’t Start Now” (38). “Good” is already racing towards the top 50 and will probably get there in the next few days. A spot lower than Lipa is another impacting record, “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)” by the Black Eyed Peas and J Balvin. It secures that fourth place finish with 35 stations on impact. The collaboration earned an additional 16 adds at the Rhythmic format, picking up the same rank of fourth place.

Elsewhere, MAX and Chromeo tied for fifth place on the log with two dozen stations adding “Checklist” this week. Recent singles from acts like Kesha and Louis Tomlinson are among the titles extending their run in the top ten.

There’s a “Sugar” rush coming next week on behalf of BROCKHAMPTON, who impact at the format for the first time.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. ZEDD & KEHLANI, “Good Thing” (Interscope)
2. TONES AND I, “Dance Monkey” (Bad Batch-Elektra/EMG)
3. DUA LIPA, “Don’t Start Now” (Warner)
4. BLACK EYED PEAS x J BALVIN, “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)” (Epic)
5-T. BLACKBEAR, “Hot Girl Bummer” (Beartrap/Alamo/Interscope)
5-T. MAX featuring CHROMEO, “Checklist” (The Orchard)
7. AJR, “Dear Winter” (S-Curve/Hollywood)
8-T. KESHA featuring BIG FREEDIA, “Raising Hell” (Kemosabe/RCA)
8-T. LOUIS TOMLINSON, “We Made It” (Arista/RED)
