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: Top 40 radio is still lonely for Lauv, who is looking top 40 bound with his latest single. Get in your feels and let’s add ’em up:
WHEN LAUV TAKES OVER: Blasting in with the follow-up to the Anne-Marie collaboration “F**k, I’m Lonely”, which got as high as #30 on the Top 40 chart last November and December, Lauv’s “Modern Loneliness” leads the adds update with 36 stations on impact. Though its first-week total is smaller than normal, an independent release taking the top spot is still very impressive. At this point, the song should easily find its way into the top 50 by the weekend, just ahead of the launch for his new album ~How I’m Feeling~ on March 6.
Much like with Lauv’s newest release, this week’s numbers for impacting tracks are generally lower, though a pair of collaborations led by Diplo and Meduza finish the day in the top ten with ties for second and seventh place, respectively.
Charting songs from Doja Cat, Khalid and Roddy Ricch are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.
A battle is brewing for next week’s adds report, as both Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga‘s new singles fight for the top spot.
