ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 7, 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’s plain toosie which song wins at the format, as Drake‘s latest hit starts with a big first week launch. Who else shuffles onto the list? Let’s add ’em up:

SLIDING INTO FIRST: With 131 adds in its impact week, Drake’s “Toosie Slide” is definitely getting some Top 40 programmers on their feet. The song easily captures the top spot on this week’s list and also leads the reports at both Rhythmic and Urban radio.

As radio comes back to life following some slower weeks, largely due to the uncertainty of the current health pandemic, three other impacting songs also slide into or move up within the top ten. Rising into second place with 34 new stations this week, Powfu and Beabadoobee‘s “Coffee For Your Head (Death Bed)” is caffeinated up and charging towards the top 40. Locked in a three-way tie for seventh place with 18 adds on the report, Megan Thee Stallion‘s “Savage” hopes to give her a second top 40 entry on the pop radio chart. The new Martin Garrix and Clinton Kane collaboration also steps into tenth place, as “Drown” scores 17 stations.

Charting songs from Dua Lipa, Lauv and The Weeknd are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap. Stay safe out there.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. DRAKE, “Toosie Slide” (OVO/Republic)
2. POWFU featuring BEABADOOBEE, “Coffee For Your Head (Death Bed)” (Robots & Humans/Columbia)
3. DUA LIPA, “Break My Heart” (Warner)
4. SURFACES, “Sunday Best” (10K Projects/Capitol)
5. THE WEEKND, “In Your Eyes” (XO/Republic)
6. LAUV, “Modern Loneliness” (AWAL/in2une)
7-T. BENEE featuring GUS DAPPERTON, “Supalonely” (Republic)
7-T. MEGAN THEE STALLION, “Savage” (1501 Certified Ent./300 Ent.)
7-T. SAINT JHN, “Roses” (Godd Complexx/HITCO)
10. MARTIN GARRIX featuring CLINTON KANE, “Drown” (RCA)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 31, 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: Dua Lipa delivers one more delicious disco delight to the format and the panel is dancing along. Who else is into the groove? Let’s add ’em up:

“BREAK” IT TO MAKE IT: Breaking at 143 stations this week, a giant start given radio’s ongoing adjustments to the pandemic, Dua Lipa’s “Break My Heart” is easily the Most Added song at the Top 40 format. This buzzing track is the follow-up to the current #1 song here, “Don’t Start Now”, which has been at the summit for six consecutive weeks. “Break” started at #40 on last weekend’s official chart, becoming Lipa’s tenth top entry to date, and is likely to make a larger move by this coming weekend’s update.

The reactive new collaboration from PartyNextDoor and Rihanna also does well on impact… and you better believe it. Landing in third place with 35 stations this week, “Believe It” is also poised to become a big record later this spring. Unsurprisingly, it leads the adds report at both the Rhythmic and Urban radio formats this week.

Charting songs from Regard, Surfaces and The Weeknd are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap, featuring new releases from JoJo and Pink Sweat$. Stay safe out there.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (TWELVE)
1. DUA LIPA, “Break My Heart” (Warner)
2. THE WEEKND, “In Your Eyes” (XO/Republic)
3. PARTYNEXTDOOR & RIHANNA, “Believe It” (Westbury Road/OVO Sound/Warner)
4. BENEE featuring GUS DAPPERTON, “Supalonely” (Republic)
5. SURFACES, “Sunday Best” (10K Projects/Capitol)
6-T. ELLIE GOULDING featuring BLACKBEAR, “Worry About Me” (Interscope)
6-T. REGARD, “Ride It” (Epic)
8-T. BAZZI, “Young & Alive” (APG/Atlantic)
8-T. POWFU featuring BEABADOOBEE, “Coffee For Your Head (Deathbed)” (Robots & Humans/Columbia)

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: the sight of a new The Weeknd track gives the format something to look at after some dismal returns last week. Let’s add ’em up:

“EYES” ON NUMBER ONE: It may not be a hot Peter Gabriel remake, but The Weeknd is about to fly up the Top 40 list with “In Your Eyes”, spotted at 60 stations in its first week. The single is featured on his most recent album After Hours, which debuted on Friday and is expected to start at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Both “Blinding Lights” and “Heartless” are still in the top ten at the format, with the former still charging towards the top spot.

Ellie Goulding‘s current release is also on the move, as the Blackbear-assisted “Worry About Me” checks in with 33 stations for the week, good for a second place finish. Blackbear ranked at #2 on last week’s Top 40 chart with “Hot Girl Bummer”.

Charting songs from Lauv, Regard and Surfaces are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap. Stay safe out there.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 17, 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: Benee successfully taps into her supapowers during a weak week here at the format; more on that below. Let’s add ’em up:

BENEE THERE, DONE THAT: Unfortunately, it’s fair to say that the fear over the spread of the Coronavirus was the new entry that dominated this week’s adds report. It was inevitable: numbers were down severely and many stations reported no adds.

Of this week’s impacting songs, Benee‘s first release at the format, the Gus Dapperton-assisted “Supalonely”, managed to find a total of 30 stations on impact, making it the Most Added release today. On a normal week, it likely would’ve done much better.

Bazzi‘s latest single also pulled in 19 stations for a third place finish, as “Young & Alive” also struggled given the circumstances.

Charting songs from Demi Lovato, Lauv and Maren Morris are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap. Stay safe out there.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. BENEE featuring GUS DAPPERTON, “Supalonely” (Republic)
2. DEMI LOVATO, “I Love Me” (Island/Republic)
3. BAZZI, “Young & Alive” (APG/Atlantic)
4-T. LAUV, “Modern Loneliness” (AWAL/in2une)
4-T. SURFACES, “Sunday Best” (10K Projects/Capitol)
6-T. 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Old Me” (Interscope)
6-T. BRYCE VINE, “Baby Girl” (Sire/Warner)
6-T. MAREN MORRIS, “The Bones” (Columbia)
9-T. CHELSEA CUTLER, “Sad Tonight” (Republic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 10, 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: Demi Lovato empowers the panel with her latest hit, while several other titles are truckin’ into the top ten. Let’s add ’em up:

“ME” TIME: The return of Demi Lovato has given us an emotional ballad in “Anyone” and the bold pop anthem “I Love Me”, this week’s top song on the adds report at Top 40 radio. It starts with 152 stations on impact, which compliments its haul of 27 stations at the Hot AC format yesterday, where it also ranked in first place. After debuting at #30 on the most recent published update, this tune is looking bound for the top ten, which would give the performer her highest-charting entry in more than two years here.

New releases by 5 Seconds Of Summer and Bryce Vine also managed to pull in some great adds this week. Both “Old Me” and “Baby Girl” tied for a second place finish with 33 stations during the session. The two singles should easily land in the top 50 in the next couple of weeks. Breland‘s recent viral song “My Truck” also drives into the top ten for the first time, placing seventh with 13 more stations coming in this week. This past Sunday, the tune officially parked in the top 50 at the Rhythmic radio format.

Charting songs from Doja Cat, Lady Gaga and Surfaces are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

The TikTok crowd has already gone wild for emerging songs from Benee and Sam Fischer, so we’ll see how they do next week at the format. Will anyone else join the impact party? Stay tuned.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. DEMI LOVATO, “I Love Me” (Island/Republic)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (March 8, 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. Sunday’s best-performing records are in the mix and ready for your ears. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

HOW DO YOU DUA: Pop star Dua Lipa earns a third week at #1 with the international smash “Don’t Start Now”. In the process, the single eclipses 19,000 spins for the week at the format, and while that number isn’t a record, it’s certainly indicative that “Don’t” still has room to grow.

Demi Lovato quickly jumps into the top 40 after just two days of airplay with “I Love Me”, which starts at #30. This is her 15th top 40 single to date. Lauv‘s “Modern Loneliness” also makes its top 40 entry this week, up 48-40, becoming his seventh top 40 hit. It’s been a big week for the independent performer, who just released his ~How I’m Feeling~ album on Friday.

The duo Surfaces manages to surface at #49 this week with their viral hit “Sunday Best”, their first chart entry at the format. Video app TikTok is responsible for the track’s sudden resurgence, which was originally released 14 months ago. The only other new single in the region is a collaboration from Diplo, Morgan Wallen and Julia Michaels, who start at #50 with “Heartless”. The original version of the song, which doesn’t feature Michaels, narrowly missed the top 50 on the Hot AC survey last fall. (The updated version also debuts at #46 at that format this week.)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 3, 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: Justin Timberlake! SZA! Lady Gaga! Huge totals! After a crazy night, it’s time to recap it all. The votes have been cast, so let’s add ’em up:

THE OTHER SIDE OF LOVE: After a slightly delayed ending to the session tonight, both “Stupid Love” by Lady Gaga and “The Other Side” by SZA x Justin Timberlake are tied for the Most Added song at the Top 40 format, earning 178 stations each. The pair of surging singles cracked the top 30 on last Sunday’s published update and are headed for higher peaks this coming weekend. Not bad for a Super Tuesday…

The emerging duo Surfaces also managed to rank well with their first song to impact here, “Sunday Best”. It started in third place with 31 stations this week. The tune, which found a second life from TikTok recently, looks bound for the top 50 by the weekend.

Charting songs from Doja Cat, Lauv and Roddy Ricch are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

The new tracks from 5 Seconds Of Summer and Demi Lovato are likely to lead the way on next Tuesday’s adds report, though quite a few additional titles are also on the schedule.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1-T. LADY GAGA, “Stupid Love” (Interscope)
1-T. SZA x JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, “The Other Side” (RCA)
