ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 24, 2018)

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: Ariana Grande stocks up on Top 40 tissues for her new track “No Tears Left To Cry”, as adds for the single flood this Tuesday’s report. Stay dry, because we’re about to add ’em up:

WHO’S CRYING NOW?: Leading her forthcoming studio album, due sometime later this year, “No Tears Left To Cry” from pop singer Ariana Grande is well ahead at the top spot on this week’s Top 40 report, landing 156 stations on impact. Grande’s largest adds week to date at the format was for “Focus”, which took in 158 stations during its first week on a run toward #13 for two weeks in November and December 2015. (Hey, we can only hope for a better result with this song.) “Tears” debuted way up at #30 on the weekend’s published update, thanks in part to hourly airplay from iHeartMedia stations throughout the day on Friday. The release also tops this week’s station leaderboards at the Hot AC and Rhythmic formats.

Will Nicky Jam and J Balvin‘s “X” be the next successful Latin crossover? With a new version in English, the collaboration takes 21 stations from the panel this week, tying for a third place finish. The two soloists have previously charted at the format in the last couple of years, but not on the same top 40 song. Tying for ninth place, with ten stations, is another terrific twosome that regularly records as a duo: Loote, new with “Your Side Of The Bed”. The New York act has yet to make the top 40 here, though they have as co-writers and producers of “No Promises” by Cheat Codes featuring Demi Lovato, which got to #6 last September.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. ARIANA GRANDE, “No Tears Left To Cry” (Republic)
2. ZAYN, “Let Me” (RCA)
3-T. DRAKE, “Nice For What” (YMCMB/Republic)
3-T. NICKY JAM & J BALVIN, “X” (Sony Latin/RCA)
5-T. CALVIN HARRIS & DUA LIPA, “One Kiss” (Columbia)
5-T. CHARLIE PUTH featuring KEHLANI, “Done For Me” (APG/Atlantic)
7. RUDIMENTAL featuring JESS GLYNNE, MACKLEMORE & DAN CAPLEN, “These Days” (Big Beat/RRP)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 17, 2018)

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: ZAYN proclaims that it’s all about “Me”, but does his latest track take the Most Added title, or will one of last week’s delicious duets eat up the adds toward a #1 finish? Let’s add ’em up:

“ME” TWO: The top tier of this week’s Top 40 adds update definitely has a “Me” thing going on, even without the myself or I. For most of the day, “Done For Me” by Charlie Puth featuring Kehlani, last week’s runner-up single, and the impacting “Let Me” by ZAYN saw a decent amount of action from the panel, the former receiving 56 stations in the week after its official impact, with the latter collecting 48 stations. Look for ZAYN’s new release on his forthcoming studio album, due later this year. Meanwhile, Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa slip to third place with the Most Added song from a week ago, “One Kiss”, new at 28 more stations.

The only other significant impacting song of note is “Push Back”, a collaboration by Ne-Yo, Bebe Rexha and Stefflon Don. In a fourth place finish, it pulls in 18 adds during its first week. Ne-Yo’s upcoming album, Good Man, is due this summer. Rexha’s song “Meant To Be”, featuring Florida Georgia Line, recently peaked at #2 on the pop chart, though it’s still up in spins for the week. Stefflon Don has yet to enter the top 50 here, though she has seen some moderate chart results on the Rhythmic and Urban lists.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (TWELVE)
1. CHARLIE PUTH featuring KEHLANI, “Done For Me” (APG/Atlantic)
2. ZAYN, “Let Me” (RCA)
3. CALVIN HARRIS & DUA LIPA, “One Kiss” (Columbia)
4. NE-YO, BEBE REXHA & STEFFLON DON, “Push Back” (Motown/Capitol)
5. DRAKE, “Nice For What” (YMCMB/Republic)
6. TAYLOR SWIFT, “Delicate” (Big Machine/Republic)
7-T. AJR featuring RIVERS CUOMO, “Sober Up” (S-Curve/Hollywood)
7-T. LOGIC & MARSHMELLO, “Everyday” (Def Jam)
9-T. BIG BOI, “All Night” (HitCo)
9-T. BÜLOW, “Not A Love Song” (Wax/Republic)
9-T. FOSTER THE PEOPLE, “Sit Next To Me” (Columbia)
9-T. MADISON BEER, “Home With You” (First Access)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 10, 2018)

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: Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa pucker up for a pop event, delivering their smooches (and stations) to the top of the report, while Charlie Puth and Kehlani fall just behind. Let’s add ’em up:

“ONE” ON ONE: After landing just shy of the top 30 on last Sunday’s published update, “One Kiss” plants a smooch at the top of the current adds report at the CHR/Top 40 format. Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa‘s collaboration starts with 87 stations, which is a notable sum on this very slow week. (Just three songs make it over a dozen adds this week. Yikes!) The hot song is expected to be on Harris’s next studio album, due sometime later this year. It reached the top ten on iTunes when it debuted on Friday.

After landing in sixth place last week, “Done For Me” from Charlie Puth featuring Kehlani moves up to the runner-up slot, with a total of 45 stations on impact. Puth’s collaboration with G-Eazy, “Sober”, still ranks in the top ten, with another nine stations (in eighth place) this Tuesday, while Kehlani’s collaboration with Eminem, “Nowhere Fast”, just missed the top ten.

Let’s hope the format comes back to life on Tax Day…

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (ELEVEN)
1. CALVIN HARRIS & DUA LIPA, “One Kiss” (Columbia)
2. CHARLIE PUTH featuring KEHLANI, “Done For Me” (APG/Atlantic)
3. THE CHAINSMOKERS, “Everybody Hates Me” (Disruptor/Columbia)
4-T. ECHOSMITH, “Over My Head” (Warner Bros.)
4-T. HALSEY featuring BIG SEAN and STEFFLON DON, “Alone” (Astralwerks/Capitol)
4-T. KHALID & NORMANI, “Love Lies” (Right Hand/Keep Cool/RCA)
4-T. MADISON BEER, “Home With You” (First Access)
8. G-EAZY featuring CHARLIE PUTH, “Sober” (RCA)

9-T. NOAH KAHAN & JULIA MICHAELS, “Hurt Somebody” (Republic)
9-T. RUDIMENTAL featuring JESS GLYNNE, MACKLEMORE & DAN CAPLEN, “These Days” (Big Beat/RRP)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (April 8, 2018)

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. Spring is finally in the air, and that means a few new seasonal smashes are also sprouting in the lower rungs of the survey. What’s getting planted in the world of pop? Check out all the action:

ZEDD OF HOUSEHOLD: Get in the car and head for the ATM; it’s time to mix top 40 tunes and Target trips with Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey, as “The Middle” holds at #1 for the second week on the Top 40 radio chart. It gains just under 1,000 spins in the current tracking week, landing it above 18,000 spins during the last seven days. Morris’s “Rich” continues its rise in the lower rungs of the Country chart, though it’s still below the top 40. Meanwhile, on both surveys, “Meant To Be” from Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line appears to be headed towards the top spot, holding at #3 on the Country list and up 3-2 on the Top 40 airwaves. The big collaboration currently appears on Rexha’s EP All Your Fault: Pt. 2, which was released in August of last year, and it is meant to be in the mix for her forthcoming full-length album Expectations, due later this year. Who gets the prize next Sunday? At this point, “Middle” has the edge for a third week at #1, but “Meant” could always spring ahead. Stay tuned.

PRELUDE TO A “KISS”: After receiving hourly airplay across iHeartMedia stations during its first day in the market, the current collaboration from Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa enters at #32 on the published chart update. “One Kiss”, which should appear on Harris’s forthcoming album later this year, is now the 17th top 40 song for the Scottish-born performer and the sixth for the English singer, the latter also at #21 this week with “IDGAF” off her self-titled album. Much of the action in the top 50 is also slow, but there are two entries in the region, led by Echosmith‘s “Over My Head” at #47. It’s the trio’s first chart song with the current lineup, and marks their first time in the top 50 since October 2015, when “Let’s Love” also reached that #47 position. (“Over” is likely to make it higher in the coming weeks.) Lastly, at #50, Sam Smith and Logic prepare to “Pray” for Top 40 glory with a new version of a song that originally appears on Smith’s set The Thrill Of It All from last year. Additionally, “Pray” is at #30 on this week’s AC update, and should rank on the Hot AC chart very soon.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 3, 2018)

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: pop balladeer Sam Smith takes the logical route toward the Most Added title with “Pray”, but will he be shut out by labelmate Halsey or Shawn Mendes? Let’s add ’em up:

STALKING OUR “PRAY”: “Goodbyes” are not enough for Sam Smith, as his follow-up to “Too Good At Goodbyes” says a nice “hello” to Top 40 format. “Pray”, which is impacting with a new version featuring Logic, starts at 35 stations this week, which falls short of the 41 stations for “In My Blood” by Shawn Mendes, this week’s Most Added release for the second consecutive week. In the next few days, “Pray”, utilizing airplay of its original version and updated remix, should approach the top 50 at the format (and pull in some additional stations along the way.)

Meanwhile, watch out for the Charlie Puth and Kehlani collaboration called “Done For Me”, which has been picking up all sorts of pre-impact action in the last few weeks. This week, it takes in another 14 stations, as it hits a three-way tie for sixth place. This is the third radio single from Puth’s forthcoming album Voicenotes, due May 11. Currently, “Me” is the only tune scheduled to impact here next Tuesday, though that could change soon.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (ELEVEN)
1. SHAWN MENDES, “In My Blood” (Island/Republic)
2. SAM SMITH featuring LOGIC, “Pray” (Capitol)
3. HALSEY featuring BIG SEAN and STEFFLON DON, “Alone” (Astralwerks/Capitol)
4. ALICE MERTON, “No Roots” (Mom + Pop/RED)
5. THE CHAINSMOKERS, “Everybody Hates Me” (Disruptor/Columbia)
6-T. CHARLIE PUTH featuring KEHLANI, “Done For Me” (APG/Atlantic)
6-T. G-EAZY featuring CHARLIE PUTH, “Sober” (RCA)
6-T. LOGIC & MARSHMELLO, “Everyday” (Def Jam)
9. BAZZI, “Mine” (APG/Atlantic)
10-T. EMINEM featuring KEHLANI, “Nowhere Fast” (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope)
10-T. POST MALONE featuring TY DOLLA $IGN, “Psycho” (Republic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 27, 2018)

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: Shawn Mendes slays the pop panel with an impressive first week for his latest single, while proven hits from Bazzi, Halsey and Taylor Swift all continue to perform well. Let’s add ’em up:

OUT FOR “BLOOD”: 19-year-old Shawn Mendes sinks his fangs into the heart of the pop panel this week, though I doubt he’s looking to become the next Bela Lugosi anytime soon. “In My Blood”, the lead single from his forthcoming third album, pumps the chartbeat of the Most Added spot on the latest update, scoring 129 stations on impact. Another cut from the highly-anticipated set, “Lost In Japan”, received a single add this week; it placed at #2 on iTunes, behind “Blood”, for several days after it was released. It could pick up additional stations in the coming weeks, but with “Blood” as the focus track from the project, “Lost” isn’t likely to get into the top 50 anytime soon (unless it gets a larger push to the format.) No word on the title of his upcoming album or a date as of yet, but we’ll see if any tea gets spilled soon.

Another notable new record in the top ten is a collaboration from Eminem and Kehlani, “Nowhere Fast”, in fourth place with 22 stations on impact. This is the third radio single from Eminem’s most recent album, Revival, which was released late last year. The highest-charting of the three so far, the Ed Sheeran-assisted “River”, reached #20 last month. Next week, look out for Logic and Marshmello, currently in sixth place with 17 new stations this week, to attain a bigger sum for “Everyday” in its official impact.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. SHAWN MENDES, “In My Blood” (Island/Republic)
2. HALSEY featuring BIG SEAN and STEFFLON DON, “Alone” (Astralwerks/Capitol)
3. TAYLOR SWIFT, “Delicate” (Big Machine/Republic)
4. EMINEM featuring KEHLANI, “Nowhere Fast” (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope)
5. BAZZI, “Mine” (APG/Atlantic)
6. LOGIC & MARSHMELLO, “Everyday” (Def Jam)
7. THE CHAINSMOKERS, “Everybody Hates Me” (Disruptor/Columbia)
8. POST MALONE featuring TY DOLLA $IGN, “Psycho” (Republic)
9. ECHOSMITH, “Over My Head” (Warner Bros.)
10. DUA LIPA, “IDGAF” (Warner Bros.)
