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: Lizzo and Cardi B tackle some rumors and records and end up at the top. Let’s add ’em up:

It also led the report at the Hot AC format yesterday.

The second and third place entries were separated by one add: with 66 stations in a pre-impact week, “Industry Baby” started in the runner-up position for Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow. The single remains at #1 on Spotify on the U.S.-based chart and continues to do well on other platforms. Meanwhile, Bazzi earned his 65 adds for “I Like That”, as he aims to score his highest-charting song at the format in 2-1/2 years.

Rounding out the top five this week, social media star Dixie started in fourth place with the Rubi Rose-assisted “Psycho” at 34 adds, while the return of Swedish House Mafia earned them 33 stations for the Ty Dolla $ign and 070 Shake-assisted “Lifetime”, coming in fifth.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 18, 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. Gather your crew for what’s popping at the format this week:

REMEMBER THE “NAME”: Earning a second week at #1 on the Top 40 chart, Lil Nas X‘s “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” lands just 34 spins ahead of the song at #2: “Good 4 U”, a future #1 at the format for Olivia Rodrigo. Meanwhile, “Montero” advances from 3-1 on the Rhythmic chart.

Post Malone leads a pack of five debuts in the top 40, as “Motley Crew” advances from 43-29 this week. It’s his 15th top 40 song to date. Up from 46-35, Billie Eilish picks up her eighth top 40 single with “NDA”. At three letters in length, it becomes one of the shortest titles to land on the chart, though we’ve had even shorter ones historically, including “Go”, “I”, “If” and “No”. Maroon 5 secures their 30th top 40 entry at the format with another relatively short title, “Lost”, lifting from 45-37. Kane Brown and Blackbear are next at #38 with “Memory”, which debuts at that position. It’s their third and eighth top 40 hits, respectively, though Brown has earned quite a few more on the Country chart. A fifth and final title moves from 41-40 to just sneak into the region, as TikTok star Nic D scores his first top 40 hit with “Fine Apple”. The song now joins a handful of other titles containing apples or pineapples to enter the chart, including “Apples, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie”, “Little Green Apples”, “One Bad Apple” and “Pineapple Princess”.

Currently in the top 20 on both the Rhythmic and Urban charts, “Thot Sh*t” twerks onto the pop radio list for Megan Thee Stallion at #49. One spot lower, we have another significant hit from the two radio lists: “Late At Night”, debuting at #50 for Roddy Ricch.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 11, 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. X marks the spot for what’s popping at the format this week:

THE “NAME” ON TOP: With his first #1 song on the Top 40 radio chart, Lil Nas X lifts from 2-1 with “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)”. The hit also advances from 5-3 at the Rhythmic format.

Debuting on the survey at #38 is the new collaboration from The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber, which uses one of the most common one-word titles of all-time: “Stay”. It’s their third and 36th top 40 hits, respectively. Rising from 42-39, “Cloudy Day” is now the third top 40 entry for Tones And I and her latest from the Welcome To The Madhouse album, due this coming Friday. Meanwhile, P!nk earns her 30th top hit with “All I Know So Far”, a song featured on the soundtrack to her Amazon documentary of the same name. It’s up a single notch to #40.

Starting at #43, Post Malone leads a solid crew of four top 50 entries with “Motley Crew”. The song also lands in the top 40 at the Rhythmic format this week. Maroon 5 is up next at #45 with “Lost”, the new single from their recent album Jordi. The track is already rising in the top 40 at Hot AC radio. A new single from Billie Eilish enters one spot lower at #46. “NDA” is the fifth song off her forthcoming album Happier Than Ever to chart at this format, this one coming about three weeks ahead of the project’s street date. Finally, Trinidad Cardona cashes in with the TikTok-approved winner “Dinero”, which hits the jackpot with a debut at #48.
