ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (July 9, 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: it’s all about the “Goodbyes”. No, not to summer or this weekly post, but a track that’s been lighting up the pop airwaves since the weekend. Let’s add ’em up:

THE BIGGEST POST OF THE SUMMER: With their first collaboration to chart at the pop format, Post Malone and Young Thug are saying hello to the top spot on the weekly adds report with “Goodbyes”, opening with 132 stations on impact. The song is also atop the log at the Rhythmic radio format, earning 51 stations there. The cut made its chart debut at #35 on the official update last Sunday and should see a nice climb this week following its robust add total.

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.

Next week, Brown’s “The Git Up” should continue to dance its way into the five, though several collaborations are also in the mix.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (July 2, 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: the “Human” race is on and the “People” are on the move. Who’s speeding into the top spot on the list? Let’s add ’em up:

“HUMAN” TOUCHES THE TOP: With the Fourth of July on deck this Thursday, this week’s adds log was quite lively with new songs from several larger acts landing in the top five. Those fireworks included a first place finish for the Jonas Brothers with 61 stations on impact for “Only Human”, the third radio single from their comeback album Happiness Begins. “Beautiful People”, the new collaboration from Ed Sheeran and Khalid, also enjoys a great start with 48 stations and a second place finish. It’s the third cut to impact from Sheeran’s forthcoming set No.6 Collaborations Project, due next Friday. Another collaboration entering the top five this week comes from Marshmello and Kane Brown with a new release titled “One Thing Right”, and it’s certainly right for fourth place: a total of 34 stations add it this Tuesday.

Active titles from the late Avicii, Lewis Capaldi, Maren Morris and Zara Larsson are among those rounding out the top ten.

Next week, the latest releases for Ellie Goulding and Lil Nas X (which both picked up some early action this week) should make a splash in the top five, with several other impacting titles in the mix as well. Enjoy the holiday!

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (ELEVEN)
1. JONAS BROTHERS, “Only Human” (Republic)
2. ED SHEERAN featuring KHALID, “Beautiful People” (Atlantic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 25, 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: lightning could strike twice for Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello at the format, as they lead a busy top ten ahead of a slower holiday week. Alright, señoritas and señores, let’s add ’em up:

GOING GOING SHAWN: Even though it’s not a hot Justin Timberlake cover, a totally different “Señorita” from Mendes and Cabello is easily this week’s Most Added release at Top 40 radio, picking up 124 stations on impact. However, Mendes’s past single “If I Can’t Have You” cleared the entire panel of 183 stations in its first week a month ago. While that track continues to gain in the top ten, Cabello is also in the top 40 with the Mark Ronson collaboration titled “Find U Again”. Look for “Señorita” to grab some top 30 action by the weekend at both this and the Hot AC radio charts, where it earned a first-week total of 25 stations yesterday.

Zara Larsson also had a solid day for her current single “All The Time”, which made a very timely entrance in third place with 33 stations during the session. A posthumous single by Avicii, featuring a lead vocal by successful collaborator Aloe Blacc, ranked a notch lower with 25 adds during the session. Both “SOS” and the aforementioned “All” should enter the top 50 very soon.

Proven winners from Lewis Capaldi, Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift, as well as additional new songs from Ava Max and Cyn, are among the rest of entries filling out the top ten this week.

Next week, watch out for some early action on Ellie Goulding and Juice WRLD‘s new collaboration, as well as some other titles that are impacting next month.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. SHAWN MENDES & CAMILA CABELLO, “Señorita” (Island/Republic)
1. TAYLOR SWIFT, “You Need To Calm Down” (Republic)
3. ZARA LARSSON, “All The Time” (TEN/Epic)
4. AVICII featuring ALOE BLACC, “SOS” (Geffen/Interscope)
5-T. AVA MAX, “So Am I” (APG/Atlantic)
5-T. MILEY CYRUS, “Mother’s Daughter” (RCA)
7. LEWIS CAPALDI, “Someone You Loved” (Capitol)
8-T. HERVE PAGEZ & DIPLO featuring CHARLI XCX, “Spicy” (Mad Decent)
8-T. MARK RONSON featuring CAMILA CABELLO, “Find U Again” (RCA)
10. CYN, “Holy Roller” (Unsub/Caroline)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 18, 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: Taylor Swift gets “Down” with the Top 40 crowd once more, blasting up to the top spot on the Tuesday report. Take a deep breath in and out and let’s add ’em up:

“YOU”-NITED AS ONE: After the Brendon Urie-assisted “ME!” cleared the entire panel in one week back in late April, it’s no surprise to see Taylor Swift picking up another giant total for the follow-up single, “You Need To Calm Down”. This tune earns 129 stations in its first week, which falls below the 183 for “ME!”, but is still quite significant. Both songs can be found on Lover, which hits stores on August 23. “You” squeaked into the top 40 on last Sunday’s update and should be well into the top 30 by the next list to be published. It also led the adds report at Hot AC radio yesterday, scoring 42 stations in total.

Swift’s current single lands well ahead of the other impacting records in the region, including songs by LIVVIATove Lo and We Three, though all three acts managed to successfully place their songs in the top ten. (More results are below.)

Next week, Ava Max (who already appears in this week’s top ten) leads a pack of at least five impacting songs, which also includes the latest releases from Cyn, MKTO and more. Curious about who will land on top? So am I! Check back next Tuesday!

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. TAYLOR SWIFT, “You Need To Calm Down” (Republic)
2-T. LIZZO, “Truth Hurts” (Atlantic)
2-T. TOVE LO, “Glad He’s Gone” (Island/Republic)
4. LEWIS CAPALDI, “Someone You Loved” (Capitol)
5. MARK RONSON featuring CAMILA CABELLO, “Find U Again” (RCA)
6. MILEY CYRUS, “Mother’s Daughter” (RCA)
7-T. AVA MAX, “So Am I” (APG/Atlantic)
7-T. LIVVIA, “Dizzy” (12Tone Music)
7-T. THE CHAINSMOKERS featuring BEBE REXHA, “Call You Mine” (Disruptor/Columbia)
10. WE THREE, “Lifeline” (Palawan/JMA)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 9, 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. Happiness fills the air at the format, but the feeling may not be as strong by next week. Let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

SUCK THIS SIX PACK: With their new album Happiness Begins headed towards the top of the Billboard 200, “Sucker” from the Jonas Brothers remains at #1 for the sixth nonconsecutive week on the Top 40 list, while their follow-up single “Cool” is up a spot to #13. Ironically, the three guys will likely be kicked out of the top spot again on next week’s chart by the performer that they name-check in “Cool”, as Post Malone‘s “Wow” (up 3-2 this week) appears ready to lead the list after five months in the top 40. (This run isn’t long enough to wow the chart geeks of the world, as it doesn’t break any records, but it’s still a slow one.)

After weeks upon weeks of bigger releases, the top 40 is finally returning to normal this week, with a number of singles climbing six, seven and eight positions following that volatile period. However, we also have three new tracks making it into the top 40, led by the collaboration “Call You Mine” by The Chainsmokers and Bebe Rexha at #35. This hit marks the twelfth top 40 entry for the duo and the 15th for Rexha. SHAED and Lewis Capaldi also earn their first top 40 tunes at the format this week: the trio is in with the recent #1 Alternative radio hit “Trampoline”, up 42-38, while Capaldi’s former U.K. chart-topper “Someone You Loved” climbs from 44-40.

Joining the top 50 this week, “Find U Again” by Mark Ronson and Camila Cabello finds a way into the #41 spot. This single also makes its debut on the Hot AC chart this Sunday, landing at #45. It should easily enter the top 40 at both formats next week. New at #47 on the survey, we also find Cabello’s former bandmate from the group Fifth Harmony: of course, that’s Ally Brooke with the A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie-assisted “Lips Don’t Lie”. It’s her second chart song as a solo artist. Finally, at #49, is a newcomer that’s had plenty of top 40 action as a songwriter: she co-wrote Halsey‘s track “Without Me”, a #1 hit for four weeks from earlier this year. Now, Delacey is in with “My Man”. Her forthcoming EP is due later this year.

Chart Notes:

  • Spending a third week at #1, Lizzo‘s “Juice” maintains the crown during the same week that her 2017 song “Truth Hurts” bows at #36. That cut has reemerged on the sales and streaming charts thanks to a sync in the Netflix film Someone Great, and it’s also beginning to find some airplay at the Rhythmic and Top 40 radio formats (though “Juice” is still receiving spins at both as well.) “Truth” is not the Highest Debut on the top 40 update, however: that belongs to Ingrid Michaelson‘s “Missing You”, which checks in one spot higher at #35. The other two debuts this week, new at #37 and #40, respectively, will be vying for support at Alternative radio in the near future: “Good Things Fall Apart” by Illenium & Jon Bellion and “You And I” by Barns Courtney. Other than Lizzo, Courtney hit #1 on my chart with 2016’s “Fire”, which had a four-week run on top.
