RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (August 15, 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 your favorite records and rumors, here’s all that’s popping at the format this week:

“U”, “VU” AND TWO: Pop star Olivia Rodrigo holds at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the fourth week with “Good 4 U”, while her past single “Déjà Vu” remains at #2 for the second week. The former title still leads the latter by over 800 spins.

With four recurrents being removed from the chart, there’s quite a bit of debut action in the top 40 and top 50. The highest of the four singles entering the top 40 comes from Lizzo and Cardi B. “Rumors” lands at #29, marking their fifth and 11th top 40 hits, respectively. Moving up from 43-38, Masked Wolf scores his second top 40 hit with “Say So”. Next, Conan Gray jumps from 42-39 with the song that becomes his fourth top 40 entry, “People Watching”. Lastly, the viral TikTok hit “Seaside” leaps from 45-40 for newcomer SEB, which is also on the move in the top 40 at the Alternative radio format.

Starting at #41, the Black Eyed Peas, Saweetie and Lele Pons hit the jackpot with their collaboration called “Hit It”. Madison Beer has a new entry at #45 with “Reckless”, which is followed by “Vacation” at #48, which teams two groups together for the first time: Dirty Heads and Train. The original version of the track (without Train) got to #10 on the Alternative radio chart in November 2017, but it’s been moving again recently thanks to a run on TikTok. One notch lower, Doja Cat meows in at #49 with “Need To Know”, marking the third song to chart from the Planet Her album. Finishing things off, Walker Hayes crosses from the country radio airwaves to pop playlists with a new entry at #50: “Fancy Like”.

The K-pop group is looking for their second top 40 entry with their new single. Will the two emerging records make the top 50 by the weekend? Stay tuned.

Charting songs from Doja Cat, Justin Bieber and Niall Horan are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (February 11, 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 Bieber grabs the top spot once again with intention, as new titles fill the top ten from top to bottom. What bops are, well, bopping this week? Let’s add ’em up:

JUSTIN TIME FOR SECONDS: Just ahead of the release of his new album Changes, Bieber’s “Intentions” leads the way at Top 40 radio this week with 130 stations on impact. The album version of the track features Quavo, though an edit without him is also available for stations. The single also leads the reports at both the Hot AC (33 stations) and Rhythmic (34 stations) radio formats.

Niall Horan ties for the runner-up spot on the report with 65 adds for “No Judgement”, the latest radio single from his upcoming set Heartbreak Weather, due March 13. The track also finished in third place on yesterday’s Hot AC log with 17 adds. “No” is likely to chart at both formats by the weekend. Following Horan’s new entry, impacting songs from Madison Beer (#5), Ali Gatie (#7) and DaBaby (#9) are all making some noise on the report and should be top 50 bound in the next week or so. Of the three, Beer is in the lead for prior top 40 songs with two, while DaBaby has one as a featured artist and Gatie has never reached the region.

Charting songs from Doja Cat, Lizzo and Selena Gomez are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

No songs are currently scheduled to impact at the format next week; we’ll see if this changes in the next few days.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. JUSTIN BIEBER, “Intentions” (Def Jam)
2-T. KHALID x DISCLOSURE, “Know Your Worth” (RCA)
2-T. NIALL HORAN, “No Judgement” (Capitol)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (February 4, 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: Khalid and Selena Gomez know their worth at Top 40 radio, but which performed ended up in that rare and coveted top position on the report? Let’s add ’em up:

“KNOW” YOUR ADDS: After sneaking in a midday premiere and wide support from the panel, “Know Your Worth” by Khalid x Disclosure is this week’s Most Added song at the Top 40 format, ending the day with a total of 60 stations. The track only earned a handful of adds at the Rhythmic format on the latest list, though it did not impact there today. Expect “Know” to easily chart this weekend on the regular published update.

Of course, this means Selena Gomez‘s “Rare” ended the day in second place, but only by one add: 59 more stations came in for it this week. The title cut from her latest album is already flying up the Top 40 chart, making its top 40 debut this past weekend.

The latest single from Meghan Trainor, the Nicki Minaj-assisted “Nice To Meet Ya”, also managed to place in the top five titles this week. It earned 40 stations on impact, earning it a fourth place rank. The collaboration is featured on her album Treat Myself, which was released last Friday. It also placed in fourth on the Hot AC report yesterday, picking up 14 stations there.

Charting songs from Doja Cat, Taylor Swift and The Weeknd are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

Next week, emerging songs from Ali Gatie, DaBaby and Madison Beer all aim to be da Most Added song of the week. Who will take the crown? Find out next Tuesday, baby.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (ELEVEN)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (February 2, 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. Just ahead of the Grammy Awards, we have some new winners on the airwaves. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

MAROONED AGAIN: With the song that’s now spent ten big weeks at #1 on the Hot AC chart, Maroon 5 scores their 11th #1 hit at the Top 40 format with “Memories”, climbing from 3-1. The multi-format hit rises about 790 spins week-to-week. For lead singer Adam Levine, the tune marks his 13th #1 on the chart, having reached the top as a featured artist on singles by Gym Class Heroes and R. City.

Four new releases enter the top 40 at the format this week, all by solo women, including one newcomer. Lizzo‘s “Cuz I Love You” is up from 49-30, earning the recent Grammy-winning performer her fourth top 40 hit at the format. Just behind her is Taylor Swift with “The Man”, which makes a high debut at #31. It’s also her 31st top 40 single here and the fourth from her current album Lover. Selena Gomez takes her 18th trip into the top 40 as a soloist with “Rare”, leaping from 44-37. It officially impacts at the format on Tuesday. Finally, first-timer Chelsea Cutler moves from 43-39 with “Sad Tonight”. The single is taken from her debut album How To Be Human, which was released a couple of weeks ago.

After a single swap from “Juicy”, which drops to #36 this week, Doja Cat meows back into the top 50 at #41 with “Say So”. It seems likely that it’ll reach the top 40 next weekend. The only other entry of note in the region comes from Hot Chelle Rae, who are back in the top 50 for the first time since the spring of 2014 with “I Hate LA”. It lands at #50.
