RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 8, 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. As we mourn the death of singer and rapper Juice WRLD at the young age of 21, here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

A “GOOD” LIFE: Lizzo‘s “Good As Hell”, with a very small loss in spins, holds at #1 on the Top 40 chart for a third week. The big hit is still in positive territory on both the Rhythmic (up 8-7) and Hot AC (up 11-9) radio charts. It appears that “Water Me”, a single that Lizzo originally released in 2017, will be splashing onto the airwaves at all three formats soon. (It has about 115 spins across the formats this week.)

Harry Styles scores his fourth top 40 hit outside of One Direction with the song that debuts at #33, “Adore You”. The single can be found on his upcoming album Fine Line, due on Friday. (It’s not a cover of the song that Miley Cyrus took to #15 in 2014.) Two other songs from the project, “Lights Up” and “Watermelon Sugar”, are continuing to receive minor airplay from several stations.

Climbing from 43-40, the Black Eyed Peas and J Balvin are new to the region with “Ritmo (Bad Boys For Life)”. It’s the 19th top 40 single at the format for the group and their first since 2011. Additionally, it’s the sixth top 40 hit for Balvin, who’s proving to be a popular collaborator as of late: he’s been featured on minor chart entries for DJ Snake and Major Lazer in the last few weeks.

The only top 50 entry of note is a viral hit that was driven by the video app TikTok: “Yellow Hearts” by Ant Saunders lands at #48 this week. It’s his first chart record and impacts on Tuesday.

The latest radio singles from Lewis Capaldi and Maggie Rogers tie for this week’s Biggest Mover, both up seven spots from last week. Four huge debuts blast onto the chart, with “Adore You” by Harry Styles leading the way at #32. It’s the third song to chart from his Fine Line album, out next week. In with her first entry since 2012, Alanis Morissette starts at #36 with “Reasons I Drink”, the first single off her forthcoming May set Such Pretty Forks In The Road. At #39, with possibly the most intriguing collaboration on the list, Steve Aoki, Sting and SHAED debut with “2 In A Million”. Aoki’s recent top ten hit with the Backstreet Boys, “Let It Be Me”, is still in the top 20 here. Finally, at #40, newcomer Taylor Janzen enters on my personal chart with “What I Do…”, which already has some minor airplay at the Alternative and Triple A formats.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 1, 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. Turkey time might be over, but we’re still in for a filling meal of musical delights. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

“GOOD” KEEPS GOING: Lizzo stays at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the second week with “Good As Hell”, which rises more than 475 spins over last weekend. “Good” also falls a notch to #8 on this week’s Rhythmic radio chart, but lifts from 15-11 at the Hot AC format. As for more good news, Lizzo’s big hit should easily claim a third week at #1 on the pop radio list, with the next potential chart-topper still some time away from the summit.

Blasting in at #31, The Weeknd lands his 12th top 40 entry at the format with “Heartless”. The track debuted several days ago and was followed on Friday by “Blinding Lights”, which continues at #1 in the U.S. on iTunes (and holds just behind “Heartless” on both Apple Music and Spotify.) Both songs should appear on his forthcoming studio album, though a release date hasn’t been announced as of yet. Billie Eilish also climbs into the region with “Everything I Wanted”, which moves from 43-38. It’s her fourth top 40 song to date. You can also find it at #33 on this week’s Alternative radio chart.

The only top 50 entry of note, which slides in at #50, comes from record label 88rising’s compilation Head In The Clouds II. The hit is “Walking”, a collaboration that includes format newcomers Joji and Jackson Wang, as well as Swae Lee and Major Lazer.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 24, 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. “Good” times are ahead on the pop survey… are you ready for the latest top bops in the radio universe? Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

“GOOD” STUFF: It’s been a big breakout year for Lizzo and it just keeps getting better. This week, she earns her second #1 single on the Top 40 survey with “Good As Hell”, up 2-1. The multi-format hit also jumps from 8-7 and 18-15 on the Rhythmic and Hot AC radio lists, respectively. With a slow holiday week on the horizon, it should easily earn a second week at the top.

From TikTok to top 40 success, newcomer Arizona Zervas soars onto the survey all the way up at #33 with “Roxanne”, which also jumps right into the top 30 on the Rhythmic list. Another single that’s also been developing on the video app is “Make You Mine” by the new trio PUBLIC, which makes its entry with a move from 41-38. Zedd and Kehlani‘s “Good Thing” jumps from 50-39 on the chart, giving the two performers their 15th and fourth top 40 entries, respectively. Finally, up from 46-40, Louis Tomlinson takes “We Made It” into the region, earning him his third solo top 40 hit outside of One Direction.

Billie Eilish, who already appears in the top 20 with “All The Good Girls Go To Hell”, is in at #43 with “Everything I Wanted”. The tune was released as a one-off single last week and does not appear on her current studio album. “Checklist” checks in at #47 for the first collaboration by MAX and Chromeo, as Ed Sheeran, Camila Cabello and Cardi B are headed “South Of The Border” and into the #48 position. The latter collaboration impacts at the format in early December. It also enters the Hot AC chart at #49.

Have an amazing Thanksgiving from PGTC!

There’s also some big debut action on the countdown, led by Horan’s former bandmate Harry Styles with “Watermelon Sugar” at #34. It’s the second song to chart from his forthcoming album Fine Line: “Lights Up” rises to #8. A new collaboration by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera, who last charted together with 2013’s “Say Something”, comes in at #36. We’ll see if “Fall On Me”, which will be performed at tomorrow’s American Music Awards, can reach or exceed the #2 peak of their prior hit. In at #37, Billie Eilish‘s “Everything I Wanted” charts concurrently with her brother’s “Shelter”, as Finneas‘s track rises from 25-24. Lastly, the #40 song belongs to Maggie Rogers, who debuts with “Love You For A Long Time”. Rogers’s highest-charting song to date, “Light On”, spent a couple of weeks at #3 in December and January.
