RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 21, 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. Writing about music and radio charts at the moment is a bit strange, but for petition and donation resources in the fight against racial inequality in our country, please go to this website and do what you can. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

INTENTIONAL CHANGES: Scoring his eighth #1 hit on the Top 40 chart, Justin Bieber lands at the top spot with the Quavo-assisted “Intentions”, up from 3-1. The track comes from his most recent album Changes, a former #1 set on the Billboard 200 chart that also gave us a very quick #11 entry from January in “Yummy”. The collaboration also reaches the top five (up 6-5) at the Hot AC format this week.

After a crazy week last time around, there’s much smaller action to talk about in the lower rungs of the chart. Moving into the top 40 this week, Kelsea Ballerini and Halsey‘s “The Other Girl” leaps from 42-39. The collaboration becomes their second and 15th top 40 hits, respectively. Sneaking into the top 50 ahead of its impact date later this month, “Go Crazy” from Chris Brown and Young Thug launches at #50. The song currently sits in the top ten on both the Rhythmic and Urban charts.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 16, 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: it was a much slower session at the format, with several big collaborations leading the way at the top of the log. Let’s add ’em up:

HOPING FOR ADDS: The adds action on this week’s report was much lower compared to last week’s session that combined two weeks worth of data, but in the end, the new Charlie Puth-assisted version of Gabby Barrett‘s “I Hope” snuck into the top spot, earning 27 new commitments. That sum was just three adds of the song finishing in second place, “Rockstar”, the current #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 from DaBaby featuring Roddy Ricch.

Charting singles from CynLil Mosey and Tones And I returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap, featuring a pair of collaborations from Kygo & OneRepublic (tied for seventh place this week) and Topic & A7S.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. GABBY BARRETT featuring CHARLIE PUTH, “I Hope” (Warner)
2. DABABY featuring RODDY RICCH, “Rockstar” (SCMG/Interscope)
3. DOJA CAT featuring GUCCI MANE, “Like That” (Kemosabe/RCA)
4. LIL MOSEY, “Blueberry Faygo” (Interscope)
5. KELSEA BALLERINI & HALSEY, “The Other Girl” (Black River Ent./Capitol-The Orchard)
6. CYN, “Drinks” (Unsub/Caroline)
7-T. BLACK EYED PEAS, OZUNA & J. REY SOUL, “Mamacita” (Epic)
7-T. KYGO featuring ONEREPUBLIC, “Lose Somebody” (Interscope-RCA)
7-T. TONES AND I, “Ur So F**king Cool” (Elektra/EMG)
10. PINK SWEAT$, “17” (Atlantic)

RADIO REPORT: What’s Popping At Top 40 Radio This Week (June 8-9, 2020)

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 are five singles impacting this week at the Top 40 format:

(NOTE: These songs were originally meant to impact last week, but were moved due to Add Board’s temporary closing.) 

GABBY BARRETT featuring CHARLIE PUTH – “I Hope” (Warner)
Album: Goldmine (2020)
Past T40 History: Barrett’s crossover release, in its original solo form, spent a week at #1 on the Country radio chart back in April.

KATY PERRY – “Daisies” (Capitol)
Album: TBA (2020)
Past T40 History: After reaching the top 40 on yesterday’s published update, Perry now has 29 top 40 songs to date at the format.

KELSEA BALLERINI & HALSEY – “The Other Girl” (The Orchard-Capitol)
Album: Kelsea (2020)
Past T40 History: This stalled just outside the top 50 on the Country radio chart, as Ballerini switches to an alternate single there.

OLIVIA O’BRIEN – “Josslyn” (Island/Republic)
EP: The Results Of My Poor Judgement (2020)
Past T40 History: O’Brien was featured on Gnash’s big hit “I Hate U, I Love U”, which spent three weeks at #5 in November 2016.

PINK SWEAT$ – “17” (Atlantic)
Album: TBA (2020)
Past T40 History: Last year, the singer had a minor Rhythmic and Urban AC hit with “Honesty”, which didn’t cross to this format.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 7, 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. Writing about music and radio charts at the moment is a bit strange, but for petition and donation resources in the fight against racial inequality in our country, please go to this website and do what you can. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

HOW ABOUT CAT: The enduring “Say So” by Doja Cat remains at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the fifth week. “Say” ranks at #6 and #11 on the Rhythmic and Hot AC charts on the same update, respectively. This will likely be its last week on top of the list, as another song is showing its intentions of grabbing the top spot by next weekend.

The current collaboration from the Black Eyed Peas, Ozuna and J. Rey Soul jumps from 45-37, as “Mamacita” earns them their 20th, second and first top 40 hits, respectively. It’s just below the top 40 on this week’s Rhythmic chart at #42. The only other single to enter the region comes from AJR, up from 41-40 with “Bang!”, their fifth top 40 entry on the Top 40 chart. The tune is also in the top five on the Alternative chart.

Another pair of songs are new to the top 50, led by Kelsea Ballerini and Halsey‘s “The Other Girl” at #49. The collaboration rises into the top 40 on the Hot AC chart this week. Natalia Damini and Petey Pablo also squeeze in at #50 with “Pacemaker”. Pablo’s been out of the top 40 here since 2004: he last hit as a featured artist on Ciara‘s “Goodies”, which reached #3 that October.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (December 11, 2018)

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: will the year end on a broken heart? Well, only in song title, that is. Before the holiday freeze hits, time to do our thing and add ’em up:

HEART OF THE HOLIDAYS: Not much is changing around these parts this week, as “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart” stays at #1 on the adds report at the format for Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus, picking up another 49 new stations. Much of the rest of the top ten is filled with familiar names, including Ava Max, Zara Larsson and more. The former’s first chart release, which finishes in second place, has 21 new stations for the week. All three records are now in the top 40 and moving up.

Keep an eye on Lauren Daigle‘s song “You Say”, a chart-topper on the Christian AC list that’s well into the top 20 on the national Hot AC survey. It impacts at the Top 40 format on January 15 and ties for tenth place this week with 11 new stations.

The first impact date of 2019 is scheduled for January 8: so far, Sabrina Carpenter‘s single “Sue Me” will be officially headed for adds at the format that Tuesday following some early action in the past few weeks. Until then, happy holidays from PGTC!

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (TWELVE)
1. MARK RONSON featuring MILEY CYRUS, “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart” (RCA)
2. AVA MAX, “Sweet But Psycho” (APG/Atlantic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (December 4, 2018)

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: we break it down with two former chart-toppers at the format on that trip to the top of the adds report that we do every Tuesday. So, let’s add ’em up:

NOTHING BREAKS LIKE A CHART: After a top five debut on iTunes and plenty of early radio action, “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart” scores big this week for Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus, picking up 82 stations on impact. The song will be featured on a forthcoming album by Ronson, due sometime in 2019. No other track comes close to that total on the latest update, but another hit that’s impacting this week finishes in the runner-up position with 25 new stations. The latest crossover track from R&B singer Ella Mai is “Trip”, which recently reached #1 on the Urban chart and remains in the top five on the Rhythmic chart. Otherwise, most of the songs in the top ten this week are repeat titles and/or already established hits trying to close out the panel.

Next week is anyone’s guess, as no prominent titles are currently scheduled to impact. Stay tuned for more information.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. MARK RONSON featuring MILEY CYRUS, “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart” (RCA)
2. ELLA MAI, “Trip” (10 Summers/Interscope)
3-T. DJ SNAKE featuring SELENA GOMEZ, OZUNA & CARDI B, “Taki Taki” (Geffen/Interscope)

9-T. ARIANA GRANDE, “Thank U, Next” (Republic)
9-T. RITA ORA, “Let You Love Me” (Warner Bros.)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (November 27, 2018)

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: Brrrr! The numbers are very chilly, as radio prepares for the annual freeze for the holidays. Let’s add ’em up:

SO “CLOSE” TO CHRISTMAS: With the Thanksgiving holiday having just passed, it’s no surprise to see that most reporters on the pop panel didn’t post any (or as many) adds this Tuesday. As a result, it was mostly established singles out in front, with “Close To Me” by Ellie Goulding x Diplo featuring Swae Lee collecting 20 adds and the top position. Ariana Grande followed in the runner-up position with another 16 adds for “Thank U, Next”. You can find the rest of the significant titles (and ties) below.

Next week, the top ten should look more lively with continued add support for “1999”, the current collaboration from Charli XCX and Troye Sivan, as well as “Trip”, the potential second top 40 single for Ella Mai. Who else is due for a solid impact week? Find out soon.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. ELLIE GOULDING x DIPLO featuring SWAE LEE, “Close To Me” (Interscope)
2. ARIANA GRANDE, “Thank U, Next” (Republic)
3. THE CHAINSMOKERS featuring KELSEA BALLERINI, “This Feeling” (Disruptor/Columbia)
4-T. AVA MAX, “Sweet But Psycho” (APG/Atlantic)
4-T. DJ SNAKE featuring SELENA GOMEZ, OZUNA & CARDI B, “Taki Taki” (Geffen/Interscope)
6-T. BENNY BLANCO & CALVIN HARRIS, “I Found You” (Columbia-Interscope)
6-T. CHARLI XCX featuring TROYE SIVAN, “1999” (Atlantic/EMG)
6-T. GUCCI MANE, BRUNO MARS & KODAK BLACK, “Wake Up In The Sky” (Atlantic)

For impacting titles, “No Candle No Light” by ZAYN featuring Nicki Minaj leads the way with 30 stations, taking second place in the weekly report, with “Hurts Like Hell” by Madison Beer featuring Offset securing 28 stations and a third place finish.

Next week, watch out for Bad Bunny‘s “MIA”, featuring Drake, a top ten Rhythmic single which should hop onto the adds report at this format with ease. Have a great Thanksgiving!
