ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (July 30, 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: newcomer Lil Tecca is up against Sam Smith‘s not-so-sleeper hit in the race for the top spot. Will this Lil name yield big action? Let’s add ’em up:

JUST A LIL BIT SHORT: During a slower week at the format, “How Do You Sleep?” by Sam Smith was the Most Added track at the Top 40 format for a second week, earning another 33 stations. Lil Tecca’s “Ransom” finishes just five adds behind him with 28. The latter song is already well into the top 30 on the Rhythmic radio list, though its most impressive stats thus far are at streaming services like Apple Music and Spotify, where it currently sits at #2 and #1 on their respective U.S.-based surveys.

After several weeks of minor activity, new titles from Kygo x Whitney Houston and Stephen Puth join the top ten for the first time. The late Houston last reached the top 50 at the format with 2002’s “Whatchulookinat”, which peaked at #46. Puth has yet to make the top 50 here, though his song “Sexual Vibe” did receive some unsolicited airplay at a handful of stations earlier this year.

Charting hits by NF and OneRepublic are among those titles holding in the top ten from a week ago, albeit with lower add totals.

With a new single from Ariana Grande and Social House ready to make the format its home, as well as rumored new music by Rihanna on the way, next Tuesday’s results will certainly be very interesting.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. SAM SMITH, “How Do You Sleep?” (Capitol)
2. LIL TECCA, “Ransom” (Galactic/Republic)
3. ED SHEERAN featuring KHALID, “Beautiful People” (Atlantic)
4. BLANCO BROWN, “The Git Up” (BBR/BMG-Warner)
5-T. NF, “Time” (Caroline)
5-T. SAM FELDT featuring RANI, “Post Malone” (Spinnin’/Warner)
7. ONEREPUBLIC, “Rescue Me” (Interscope)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (July 23, 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: Sam Smith tops the report, as he catches some ZZZ’s and the top spot in the world of adds. Don’t get sleepy just yet… we still have to add ’em up:

IN “DO” TIME: Coming off his two-week #1 single “Dancing With A Stranger”, a collaboration with Normani that landed at the top in May, Sam Smith had a sizable impact week for his follow-up release. “How Do You Sleep?” rested comfortably at 85 stations this week, leaping ahead of a second place finish for NF‘s “Time” (earning 52 stations) and a third place finish for OneRepublic‘s “Rescue Me” (47 stations) on the log. All three songs started below the top 50 on last Sunday’s published update, but they will grab a spot in the region by Sunday, as several older tracks will be pulled from the list. As expected, “How” will debut the highest.

Current chart hits from Blanco Brown and the Jonas Brothers are among those tunes that are stable in the top ten here on the latest adds list.

Though no releases are currently listed as impacting next week, look for songs from Ali Gatie and NCT 127, both headed for adds in two weeks, to pick up some early support.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. SAM SMITH, “How Do You Sleep?” (Capitol)
2. NF, “Time” (Caroline)
3. ONEREPUBLIC, “Rescue Me” (Interscope)
4. ED SHEERAN featuring KHALID, “Beautiful People” (Atlantic)
5. BLANCO BROWN, “The Git Up” (BBR/BMG-Warner)
6. JONAS BROTHERS, “Only Human” (Republic)
7-T. LIL NAS X, “Panini” (Columbia)
7-T. SAM FELDT featuring RANI, “Post Malone” (Spinnin’/Warner)
9. ELLIE GOULDING & JUICE WRLD, “Hate Me” (Polydor/Interscope)
10. POST MALONE featuring YOUNG THUG, “Goodbyes” (Republic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (July 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: those Jonas Brothers are “Only” on top again, but there are new singles stepping into the top ten as well, including a viral dance smash. Let’s get onto the floor and add ’em up:

THE HUMAN TOUCH: Having cleared more than 70% of the Top 40 panel, the Jonas Brothers are back at the top of the report, earning another 42 stations this week, which puts them just ahead of Blanco Brown‘s “The Git Up” with 37 adds. “Git” picked up 21 stations yesterday at Country radio, where it tied for fourth place. Brown’s debut single is now in the top 40 at the pop format as of last Sunday’s published update and could receive a larger boost by this weekend.

The first collaboration for Monsta X and French Montana, titled “Who Do U Love?”, is loved at 25 stations this week. Tying for fifth place on the log, it should easily crack the top 50 in the coming days. Reactive tracks from Lewis Capaldi, Miley Cyrus and Zara Larsson are among those rounding out the top ten.

Next week, it’s likely to be another wild session with new releases from NF, OneRepublic, Sam Feldt and others.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (TWELVE)
1. JONAS BROTHERS, “Only Human” (Republic)
2. BLANCO BROWN, “The Git Up” (BBR/BMG-Warner)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 14, 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. Now that the power is restored here in New York City, it’s time to get electric with a shot of powerful pop. Let’s see what’s charging up at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

“TALK” OF THE TOWN: Khalid keeps on chatting up the top spot, earning a fourth week at #1 at Top 40 radio with “Talk”. The song also holds at #2 on the Rhythmic chart, while it moves from 4-3 at Urban radio, 10-7 at Urban AC and 17-15 at Hot AC. It’s still about 1,000 spins ahead of its nearest competitor here on the pop chart, “I Don’t Care” by Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber, at #2.

Grabbing a sweetheart and a five-spot jump up the chart, Blanco Brown rises from 44-39 with his first top 40 hit, “The Git Up”. It impacts at both the Country and Top 40 radio formats this week. Marshmello and Kane Brown are also on the move, headed up from 45-40 with “One Thing Right”. It’s the seventh top 40 entry for the DJ/producer and the first crossover appearance for Brown, a young Country music star that’s successfully put four songs in a row at the top of that respective radio chart.

We also note a top 50 debut this week from Kaskade and Meghan Trainor, who enter at #48 with “With You”. Though Trainor’s had a steady run of chart singles since 2014, this collaboration marks Kaskade’s first appearance on the pop chart since 2013. At the time, he spent a week at #50 with “Atmosphere” in September, though the song declined in airplay shortly afterwards.

Ellie Goulding and Juice WRLD‘s “Hate Me” also scored a very solid 42 stations on impact and a second place finish. This tune also charted on Sunday, entering at #48, and should be well on its way towards the top 40 now. Yesterday, the single picked up ten stations at the Hot AC format, ranking in third place on that list.

Rounding out the top three and charging ahead with a total of 30 stations, Kaskade and Meghan Trainor‘s “With You” was also in good shape on the report.

Building titles from the Blanco Brown, the Jonas Brothers and Lewis Capaldi are among those rounding out the top ten.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 7, 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 barbecues might be over for a moment, but we’re still grilling some hits in the pop music world. Let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

STILL TALKING IT UP: Khalid‘s “Talk” remains at #1 for the third week on the Top 40 chart, marking his longest run to date at the top spot. He now has a total of seven weeks at the summit over three songs in a little under a year. Will the multi-format hit grab a fourth week here, or will someone else talk louder next Sunday? Stay tuned. Meanwhile, you can also find “Talk” at #2 on the chart at Rhythmic radio, while it also ranks at #4 and #10 on the Urban and Urban AC lists.

“Goodbyes” is one of three songs to say hello to the top 40 this week, as the Post Malone and Young Thug collaboration enters at #35 after its premiere on Friday. It’s the tenth top 40 entry for Malone and the second for Thug, both of whom have reached the top. Charting his 19th top 40 hit is Ed Sheeran, who bolts from 47-36 with “Beautiful People”. It features the aforementioned Khalid in his ninth top 40 appearance. It’s the third top 40 track in the past two months from Sheeran’s No.6 Collaborations Project, due next week and expected to the lead the Billboard 200 list later this month. Also scoring the third top 40 entry from their former #1 album Happiness Begins, the Jonas Brothers jump from 48-38 with their ninth chart hit overall, “Only Human”.

Bouncing into the top 50 this week, we have six new tracks in the region. The highest of the five, at #43, comes from Zara Larsson with “All The Time”. Her last entry here, “Ruin My Life”, reached #16 in February. One notch below her, the viral track “The Git Up” marks the first chart appearance for Blanco Brown (no relation to Benny Blanco) at #44. If you’re still trying to learn the moves to the song, don’t worry, you’re not alone: even more listeners will be attempting their best cowboy boogie when “Git” impacts at the Country and Top 40 radio formats later this month. Speaking of the former, Country star Kane Brown makes it over to the pop list for the first time with his Marshmello collaboration “One Thing Right”, debuting at #45. Up next, Ellie Goulding blasts in with a collaboration with Juice WRLD called “Hate Me”, which starts at #48. The release impacts on Tuesday along with the Post Malone and Young Thug single that was noted earlier. Further entries this week come from the late Avicii and Aloe Blacc, who bow at #49 with “SOS”, and the Herve Pagez, Diplo and Charli XCX collaboration called “Spicy”, which sizzles at #50. Avicii and Blacc went to #1 for three weeks in October and November 2013 with “Wake Me Up”, though the latter artist wasn’t credited on it. “Spicy” takes on the classic “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls and interpolates it into a new version; the original track peaked at #4 for four weeks in March 1997.
