ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (August 3, 2021)

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: skating for the win, it’s Silk Sonic and their golden amount of adds. Let’s add ’em up:

“SKATE” LOOKS GREAT: The Top 40 format is headed to Mars… Bruno Mars, that is. His latest collaboration with Anderson .Paak as Silk Sonic, titled “Skate”, leads this week’s adds report with 95 stations on impact. The tune also led the logs at the Hot AC, Rhythmic and Urban formats yesterday and today, earning close to 220 adds across all four. Look for it to perform well into the fall, as we await the release date of their full-length effort An Evening With Silk Sonic.

“Industry Baby”, the big collaboration from Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow, remained in second place for another week with 39 more adds. A notch lower, Khalid rounded out the top three with “New Normal”, securing 27 adds on impact.

Charting singles from Bazzi, Camila Cabello and Måneskin returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 27, 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. Let’s uncover the habits of hit songs and see what’s popping at the format this weekend:

LEAPIN’ WITH LIPA: For the third and final week, Dua Lipa holds at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart with “Levitating”. The smash drops to #2 at the Hot AC radio format. However, Lipa is making some leaps with “Love Again”, the next single from her Future Nostalgia album. The tune officially hits the pop airwaves following the holiday weekend for Independence Day, but due to its recent action just below the top 50, it could be charting as soon as next weekend.

Tate McRae and Khalid are “Working” for the weekend, as their collaboration makes a massive jump from 43-24 on the chart. It’s the third top 40 hit at the format for McRae and the 12th for Khalid. Right behind them, Ed Sheeran blasts in at #25 with “Bad Habits”, becoming his 22nd chart hit. The song also enters the Hot AC radio chart within the same region, landing at #23 after just two days of airplay.

From her recent album Planet Her, which is looking at a top three entry on the Billboard 200 chart, Doja Cat is in at #41 with “You Right”, a collaboration with The Weeknd. The tune is also picking up significant early airplay at the Rhythmic and Urban radio formats. Coming in at #44, Tones And I is back on the survey with “Cloudy Day”, the new single from her Welcome To The Madhouse album. The forecast calls for a sunny chart run ahead of the project, which comes out in three weeks. Finally, if you’re looking for a little dessert to finish our musical meal, “Jalebi Baby” enters at #47 for newcomer Tesher and chart mainstay Jason Derulo. The single (in its original form) recently experienced a tasty viral moment on TikTok.

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 (February 25, 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: 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.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. LAUV, “Modern Loneliness” (AWAL/in2une)
2-T. DIPLO featuring MORGAN WALLEN & JULIA MICHAELS, “Heartless” (Columbia)
2-T. DOJA CAT, “Say So” (Kemosabe/RCA)
4. RODDY RICCH, “The Box” (Atlantic)
5. BLACK EYED PEAS x J BALVIN, “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)” (Epic)
6. MONSTA X, “You Can’t Hold My Heart” (Epic)
7-T. KHALID x DISCLOSURE, “Know Your Worth” (RCA)
7-T. MEDUZA, BECKY HILL & GOODBOYS, “Lose Control” (Astralwerks/Capitol)
9. TREVOR DANIEL, “Falling” (Alamo/Interscope)
10. JUSTIN BIEBER featuring QUAVO, “Intentions” (Def Jam)

The K-pop group is looking for their second top 40 entry with their new single. Will the two emerging records make the top 50 by the weekend? Stay tuned.
