RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 14, 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. For all the top titles that keep the music industry afloat, here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

BABY’S FIRST WEEK: After sitting it out at #2 for the past four weeks, “Industry Baby” becomes the new #1 song at the Top 40 format. It marks the second chart-topper this year for Lil Nas X and the first for Jack Harlow. The Columbia label now claims the top three spots on the chart: The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber drop from 1-2 with “Stay” after ten weeks at the summit, while Adele‘s “Easy On Me” blasts from 8-3.

Format newcomer Oliver Tree branches out and soars from 44-36 with “Life Goes On”. It’s his first hit to rank on the Top 40 chart, but he’s already seen some action for a couple of past releases on the Alternative chart. Up from 42-38, “Faking Love” pairs Anitta and Saweetie for their second and fifth top 40 hits at the format, respectively. Finally, Imagine Dragons return to the Top 40 chart with “Follow You”, rising from 43-40. It’s their 11th entry to date and first since the spring of 2019.

The only new tune in the top 50 is one that earned most of its airplay on Friday: “Message In A Bottle”, entering at #46 for Taylor Swift. It’s included on Red (Taylor’s Version), a re-recorded release of her 2012 album, which will debut atop the Billboard 200 chart later this month.

LET’S “STAY” TOGETHER: Their enduring radio smash is titled “Stay” and it seems like The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber are doing it, as they and their collaboration earn a fourth week at #1 on the Top 40 chart. The cut is down about 300 spins, but it remains above 19,000 total again this week and nearly 1,900 ahead of its nearest competitor.

Rising from 50-31 to score their 14th top 40 hit at the format, the Jonas Brothers are off to a very fast start with “Who’s In Your Head”. Lil Nas X is also seeing some major support for “That’s What I Want”, which debuts at #33 this week.

Two solo women have this week’s entries in the top 50: Kacey Musgraves lands at #45 with “Justified”, while Nessa Barrett starts at #46 with “I Hope Ur Miserable Until Ur Dead”. Musgraves is looking for her first top 40 entry at the format, while Barrett is going for her second.
