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.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 12, 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. Oh, mama, have we got some huge action at the format for this Mother’s Day update! Lots of music to cover, so here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

ALL FOUR THE SUCKERS: Spending their fourth week at #1 on the Top 40 chart, the Jonas Brothers are in control with a hit that just won’t go away: “Sucker”. It’s the first single off their forthcoming album Happiness Begins. The song also skips from 6-2 on the Hot AC chart, while it’s now in the top 30 on the AC chart, rising 32-26. Can the recent Saturday Night Live performers get their fifth week at the top next Sunday, or will the competition suck them out of the summit? Stay tuned!

Much of the action this week is concentrated in the bottom half of the survey, which includes a number of tracks entering the top 40. The highest, coming in way up at #21, is the highly-anticipated collaboration from Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber. “I Don’t Care”, which debuted on Friday, also ranks at #20 on the Hot AC list. It’s the 17th top 40 hit on the pop survey for Sheeran and the 25th for Bieber. Dan + Shay bolt from 42-34 with their second top 40 hit at the format, “Speechless”, which hit #1 on the Country chart. It’s also a good week for Bazzi, who earns his third top 40 single with “Paradise”, moving from 41-35. Following him, MAX and Quinn XCII have a notable lift from 45-37 with “Love Me Less”, giving the two soloists their third and first top 40 entries, respectively. The collaboration “Power Is Power” is also new to the top 40 on the list, up from 46-40 for SZA, The Weekend and Travis Scott. SZA earns her third top 40 entry here, while The Weeknd gets his twelfth and Scott picks up his seventh. You can find this cut on For The Throne: Music Inspired By The HBO Series Game of Thrones, a compilation released late last month.

The debut action continues at #41 with “Summer Days”, a collaboration by Martin Garrix, Macklemore and Patrick Stump. At #45 and also entering the top 50, we have the new #1 song on the Rhythmic format: A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie‘s “Look Back At It”, which marks the artist’s first entry at the pop format. The top five Alternative radio hit from SHAED titled “Trampoline” also enters the top 50 this week, landing at #48 to become the trio’s first entry here. That single is also headed towards the top 15 on the Hot AC list. Finally, at #49, the recent U.K. chart-topper by Lewis Capaldi, “Someone You Loved”, makes its first appearance on the list. It now ranks in the top 25 at the Hot AC format.

  • It’s another tasty and tangy week at #1 for Lizzo‘s “Juice”, which remains at the summit for a second week, while Shawn Mendes makes a big leap from 31-16 with the Biggest Mover on the chart, “If I Can’t Have You”. (Hey, did our cassingle get lost in the mail?) Though much of the top 20 is bulleted this week, creating a bit of a logjam, Mendes’s song should be in the top ten in the next two weeks. The only debut on the list, new at #34, is the first top 40 collaboration for pop stars Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber. “I Don’t Care” was released on Friday, climbing to #1 on iTunes and Spotify’s U.S. charts, while surging at several radio formats. It’s the latest big summer release, but watch out: there’s more to come.

Chart Notes:

  • In its 14th week on the chart, the first top 40 entry for Lizzo becomes her first #1 song on my chart. “Juice” leaps from 4-1. The tune is featured on the album Cuz I Love You, which recently debuted and peaked at #6 on the Billboard 200. Lizzo’s release is currently charting on the Top 40 and Urban AC charts, though it is receiving more minor airplay at several other formats. As Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie‘s “ME!” jumps a massive 16 spots to #12, easily the Biggest Mover in the countdown, there are four entries in the lower rungs of the chart. Shawn Mendes gets in on the action at #31 with the highest of the four songs, “If I Can’t Have You”. The single is expected to debut in the top 30 on both the Hot AC and Top 40 charts on tomorrow’s published update. His last top 40 hit here, “Lost In Japan”, peaked at #3 last November. Bastille climbs in at #34 with “Joy”, which follows their four-week #1 “Happier” (with Marshmello) that also peaked in November of last year. Checking in at #38, actor and singer Ben Platt earns his first top 40 song with “Grow As We Go”, the first radio single from his album Sing To Me Instead. Maren Morris also debuts with “The Bones”, the follow-up to “Girl”, which slides in at #39. Morris’s hit impacts at the Hot AC format in two weeks, as Platt and Mendes’s singles face off on the adds report this Monday. (Bastille’s new one heads for adds at Alternative radio this Tuesday.)

New Politics – Comeback Kid

Chart Notes:

  • Let’s talk about “Me” this week! No, really, let’s do it. “Walk Me Home” advances from 2-1 on the chart, earning P!nk her seventh #1 hit to date. It also marks her first single to reach the top since “What About Us”, a three-week #1 in October 2017. Her current album Hurts 2B Human was released on Friday and should have a solid debut on the Billboard 200 list. However, the week’s only debut makes this “Me” time even clearer: a new collaboration from Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie titled “ME!” rockets in at #28. Also released on Friday, the song is the lead single off Swift’s upcoming studio album, due later this year. With eight #1 releases to date on my survey, she’s definitely hoping to get her ninth with this one. Meanwhile, Urie’s “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” (as a member of Panic! At The Disco) holds at #3 again on the current chart.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 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: our musical map of the soul leads us to a winning collaboration from BTS and Halsey, while singles from Push Baby and Travis Scott also push towards big starts. Let’s add ’em up:

IT’S A “BOY”: K-popping into the top spot on this week’s adds report, “Boy With Luv” by BTS and Halsey earns a huge first-week total at the Top 40 format, picking up 109 stations on impact. That sum is more than enough to give the group their biggest start to date and should launch this single well up the chart towards their highest-peaking entry at the format ever. Meanwhile, Halsey has history at the top with three #1 songs here, all of them collaborations, and we’ll see if she’s due for a fourth. “Boy” did not impact at any other format this week, but it may earn some Hot AC and Rhythmic airplay as the spring rolls on.

Travis Scott is also looking awake and alert with The Weeknd-assisted “Wake Up”, which falls into third place with 40 stations. A recent top 20 song on the Rhythmic survey, “Wake” should climb just as high on the Top 40 list. Additionally, Push Baby, a quartet who formerly charted as Rixton, is showing promise with a fifth place finish at 26 stations for “Mama’s House”. In 2014, the band’s best-performing song under their previous name, “Me And My Broken Heart”, reached #6 that June.

Next week, look out for impacting singles from Bazzi, Dan + Shay and MAX to continue to shine ahead of the summer season.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. BTS featuring HALSEY, “Boy With Luv” (BigHit/Columbia)
2. LIL NAS X, “Old Town Road” (Columbia)
3. TRAVIS SCOTT featuring THE WEEKND, “Wake Up” (Epic-Republic)
4. JONAS BROTHERS, “Cool” (Republic)
5. PUSH BABY, “Mama’s House” (SRV/Republic)
6. KELLY CLARKSON, “Broken & Beautiful” (Atlantic/EMG)
7. LEWIS CAPALDI, “Someone You Loved” (Capitol)
8-T. BILLIE EILISH, “When The Party’s Over” (Darkroom/Interscope)
8-T. KHALID, “Talk” (RCA)
10. LIZZO, “Juice” (Atlantic)
