ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 15, 2022)

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: Megan Thee Stallion and Dua Lipa have a tasty pie for the pop panel. Let’s add ’em up:

THE “SWEETEST” THING: Earning 140 stations on impact, “Sweetest Pie” is the delicious and deserving winner of the Most Added title at the Top 40 radio format, as the collaboration from Megan Thee Stallion and Dua Lipa is off to a quick start. Last weekend, it became their seventh and 17th top 40 hits, respectively, and could end up just outside the top 20 by the weekend.

The only other impacting title of note comes from Eddie Benjamin, who tied for seventh place with 20 adds for “Weatherman”. The single entered at #49 on last weekend’s chart and should move up a bit with the new activity. It’s his first song to impact here.

Charting singles from Dove CameronEm Beihold and Tate McRae also returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next week for another action-packed adds session.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. MEGAN THEE STALLION & DUA LIPA, “Sweetest Pie” (1501 Certified/300 Ent.)
2-T. 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Complete Mess” (BMG)
2-T. TYGA featuring DOJA CAT, “Freaky Deaky” (EMPIRE-Kemosabe/RCA)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 8, 2022)

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: Camila Cabello and Ed Sheeran jam some “Bam” into the adds report. Let’s add ’em up:

It tied with “Bam Bam” for the Most Added title at the Hot AC format yesterday, earning 36 adds there.

Another handful of new releases ranked just below the top five on this week’s adds report. Of note, “I’m Tired” started with 19 stations and a sixth-place finish, as Labrinth and Zendaya continue to ride a wave of streaming momentum from HBO’s Euphoria.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (March 6, 2022)

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. This week’s chart isn’t a complete mess, but one new entry is…

ABCDEF-TWO: 17-year-old GAYLE scores a second week at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart with “Abcdefu”, the first hit from A Study Of The Human Experience (Volume One), an EP due on March 18. It also ranks at #5 on this week’s Hot AC chart and #14 at the Alternative format.

Three songs charge into the top 40 this week: leading the pack, Camila Cabello and Ed Sheeran enter at #35 with “Bam Bam”, the second top 40 single from her forthcoming Familia album. The collaboration marks the 16th top 40 entry for Cabello as a solo artist and the 26th for Sheeran, who has three titles on the chart. Next, 5 Seconds Of Summer returns to the top 40 for the first time in two years with “Complete Mess”, new at #37. It’s the group’s 12th top 40 song to date, which isn’t messy whatsoever. Finally, Kygo and DNCE have all the right moves with “Dancing Feet”, which spins and sways from 49-38. It’s their eighth and sixth top 40 entries, respectively.

Aiming for her second top 40 entry, singer Mimi Webb lands at #46 with “House On Fire”, a recent top ten hit in the U.K. and Ireland. New at #47, “Freaky Deaky” teams Tyga and Doja Cat, a collaboration which also makes the top 40 at the Rhythmic radio format. Finally, after a major resurgence on TikTok, “Lost” debuts at #49 for Frank Ocean. The popular cut can originally be found on 2012’s channel ORANGE.
