ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 16, 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: our musical map of the soul leads us to a winning collaboration from BTS and Halsey, while singles from Push Baby and Travis Scott also push towards big starts. Let’s add ’em up:

IT’S A “BOY”: K-popping into the top spot on this week’s adds report, “Boy With Luv” by BTS and Halsey earns a huge first-week total at the Top 40 format, picking up 109 stations on impact. That sum is more than enough to give the group their biggest start to date and should launch this single well up the chart towards their highest-peaking entry at the format ever. Meanwhile, Halsey has history at the top with three #1 songs here, all of them collaborations, and we’ll see if she’s due for a fourth. “Boy” did not impact at any other format this week, but it may earn some Hot AC and Rhythmic airplay as the spring rolls on.

Travis Scott is also looking awake and alert with The Weeknd-assisted “Wake Up”, which falls into third place with 40 stations. A recent top 20 song on the Rhythmic survey, “Wake” should climb just as high on the Top 40 list. Additionally, Push Baby, a quartet who formerly charted as Rixton, is showing promise with a fifth place finish at 26 stations for “Mama’s House”. In 2014, the band’s best-performing song under their previous name, “Me And My Broken Heart”, reached #6 that June.

Next week, look out for impacting singles from Bazzi, Dan + Shay and MAX to continue to shine ahead of the summer season.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. BTS featuring HALSEY, “Boy With Luv” (BigHit/Columbia)
2. LIL NAS X, “Old Town Road” (Columbia)
3. TRAVIS SCOTT featuring THE WEEKND, “Wake Up” (Epic-Republic)
4. JONAS BROTHERS, “Cool” (Republic)
5. PUSH BABY, “Mama’s House” (SRV/Republic)
6. KELLY CLARKSON, “Broken & Beautiful” (Atlantic/EMG)
7. LEWIS CAPALDI, “Someone You Loved” (Capitol)
8-T. BILLIE EILISH, “When The Party’s Over” (Darkroom/Interscope)
8-T. KHALID, “Talk” (RCA)
10. LIZZO, “Juice” (Atlantic)

Chart Notes:

  • Congrats to Kacey Musgraves and her song “Rainbow” on its fifth week at #1 on my survey, making it the longest-running chart-topper of the year thus far. The single remains in the top 40 on both the AC and Country radio charts. Dean Lewis has this week’s Highest Debut, landing at #38 with “Stay Awake”. It’s his third title to reach my top 40 and the follow-up to “7 Minutes”, which stays at #8 again on my latest list. Coming in a notch lower at #39, it’s the fourth top 40 hit for The Strumbellas. “I’ll Wait” follows “Salvation”, which recently got as high as #4. Both of these debut songs should do well on here through the summer months.

Chart Notes:

  • Kacey Musgraves holds steady at #1 for the third week with “Rainbow”, but she’s facing some competition from Westlife‘s huge comeback: in addition to debuting at #38 with “Better Man”, they’re up from 4-2 with “Hello My Love”, their highest-charting entry on my list to date. On the move from 36-29, Noah Kahan takes the Biggest Mover title with “Mess”, his fourth top 40 single since 2017. Finally, this week’s Highest Debut, starting at #36, is a new soundtrack tune from the kelegendary artist herself, Kelly Clarkson. “Broken & Beautiful” is featured on the set from the animated movie UglyDolls, opening in May. Clarkson also voices one of the lead characters named Moxy. It’s the performer’s first soundtrack hit on my personal chart since 2004, when “Breakaway” (from The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement) peaked at #3.
