ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (December 10, 2019)

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: Harry Styles is adored by his many fans and Top 40 programmers alike, as his latest solo single has a big win on the last report of the year. Let’s add ’em up:

A STYLISH END TO THE YEAR: It’s the final impact date for the year and the decade, so some adoration for the format seems like a good way to head out with a bang. Harry Styles is back with the first radio single from his upcoming album Fine Line: “Adore You” blasts onto the list with a massive 169 adds on impact. Just in case you were wondering, “Sign Of The Times” started with 127 adds in its first week in April 2017, which was previously his largest one-week total as a solo artist. “Adore” made the top 40 by last Sunday’s published update, so expect a significant jump up the chart by this weekend.

Billie Eilish‘s “Everything I Wanted” and Ant Saunders‘s “Yellow Hearts” also impacted at the format today, though both songs have already seen some solid action here in the last month. Eilish finished in second place with 56 stations, while Saunders tied for fifth with 16.

Established hits by Arizona Zervas, Blackbear and The Weeknd are among those returning to the top ten on the report.

The usual Tuesday night adds recap will return in January once singles begin impacting again, but until then, you can still read our Sunday night recap for all the latest chart stats from the pop world. Happy holidays!

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.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 17, 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. The usual Post is ready to go, with plenty of fun facts from the pop survey. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

FULL CIRCLE MOMENT: Post Malone‘s “Circles” is the shape of this week’s #1 single at the Top 40 format, climbing from #2. It’s his fourth chart-topper to date and his second so far this year; “Wow” led the list for a week in June. Meanwhile, “Circles” is just outside the top ten on the Hot AC (#11) and Rhythmic (#12) radio charts this week. At this point, it’s unclear if the song will emerge at the top for a second week, as Lizzo‘s surging “Good As Hell” (up 4-2) could easily snatch the throne away.

Travis Scott‘s “Highest In The Room” leads three new top 40 entries on the list, as it rises from 44-36 to become his eighth top 40 hit at the format. Scott also appears as a featured artist on Post Malone‘s “Take What You Want”, which moves from 38-35. Going up from 42-38, Loud Luxury and Bryce Vine score their second and third top 40 songs, respectively, with “I’m Not Alright”. The single has already reached the top 20 on the Hot 100 in the duo’s native Canada. Charlie Puth is also moving in the right direction with his tenth top 40 entry, as “Mother” climbs from 45-40. It’s one spot higher on the Hot AC chart, giving Puth his ninth top track at that format.

This week’s top 50 action is led by One Direction member Louis Tomlinson‘s new single, “We Made It”, which debuts at #46. A new collaboration by the Black Eyed Peas and J Balvin is getting into the rhythm at #48. “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)”, which is featured on the soundtrack to the upcoming movie Bad Boys For Life, marks the band’s first tune on the pop chart in just over eight years. Lindsey Stirling and Elle King enter at #49 with “The Upside”, giving the former her first entry at the format, while Zedd and Kehlani have a “Good Thing” going at #50.

Neon Trees score their ninth top 40 single on my list with “Used To Like”, entering at #39. The group has two #1 songs to date and we’ll see if their third is on the horizon in the new year.
