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”.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (January 31, 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. It’s time to buss open the survey and look at what’s popping at the format this week:

A CHANGE IN POSITIONS: In what is likely its last week at the top, “Positions” by Ariana Grande scores a seventh week at #1 on the Top 40 chart. Grande claims two of the top five songs on the chart, as “34+35” rises from 7-5.

Three new songs light up the top 40 on this week’s chart, led by a 41-31 jump for Ava Max with “My Head & My Heart”. The tune is her fourth top 40 entry thus far. After sneaking into the top 50 last week, Jason Derulo and Adam Levine jump from 49-34 with “Lifestyle”. It’s the former’s 23rd top 40 hit and latter’s fifth as a solo artist. Chart newcomer CJ is also on the move, lifting from 42-40 with “Whoopty”. His recent viral hit is rising in the top ten on the Rhythmic chart, which means he may as well be more addicted to airplay than blue cheese (at least, for now.)

In the top 50, “Skin” begins at #43 for Sabrina Carpenter, while an entry at #48 belongs to Madison Beer with “BS”. Two other titles are in the region for the first time, as newcomer Erica Banks bounces in at #49 with “Buss It” and the collaborative efforts of Loud Luxury, Frank Walker and Stephen Puth charge the #50 spot with “Like Gold”.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (October 25, 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. We hope you’re in the mood for some songs and stats. Let’s see what’s popping at the format this week:

HEART OF GOLDN: Format newcomers 24KGoldn and Iann Dior leap from 3-1 on the Top 40 chart with “Mood”. The song is doing well across several other U.S. formats: it climbs to #2 on this week’s Rhythmic chart and is moving through the top 15 and top 25 on the Alternative and Hot AC radio charts, respectively.

Ariana Grande has the week’s top new entry with “Positions”, a song that blasts into the #28 spot after only two days of airplay. It marks the singer’s 23rd top 40 single at this format. It’s also the title cut from her upcoming album, which is out on Friday. Up from 45-34 on the survey, Bebe Rexha and Doja Cat are moving quickly with “Baby, I’m Jealous”. The entry gives the two women their 17th and fourth top 40 hits, respectively. Harry Styles is next in line, as he rises from 47-39 with his sixth solo top 40 hit and third from his Fine Line album, “Golden”. Lastly, up a single notch to #40, Madison Beer achieves her third top 40 single with “Baby”.

In the top 50, G-Eazy and Blackbear come in at #42 with “Hate The Way”, their first charting collaboration. Joji checks in at #47 with the song he hopes will become his second top 40 single at the format, “Your Man”. Singer and songwriter Julia Michaels also makes it onto the list this week with “Lie Like This”, which starts at #48, while Bea Miller sneaks in at #49 with “Feel Something”.

For those of you craving some Ocean Spray and a little Fleetwood Mac, the legendary group’s 1977 chart-topper turned 2020 viral hit “Dreams” would’ve been at #52 this week if it was converted back to current status. If any changes are made, we’ll let you know.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (September 29, 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: we find some fast adds for Travis Scott‘s fast food, which certainly helps to nourish the Top 40 panel. Let’s add ’em up:

A LOT FOR SCOTT: Travis Scott’s “Franchise”, a collaboration with Young Thug and M.I.A., is the week’s Most Added song at the Top 40 format with 56 stations on impact. It earns an additional 60 adds at the Rhythmic format and 63 on the Urban report.

The rest of the top four also consists of new entries: Bastille‘s “Survivin'”, which earned a third place finish at both the Alternative and Hot AC formats, was a survivor and started in second place here with 28 adds in its first week. Why Don’t We‘s “Fallin'” took the third position with 26 stations this week, just six hours after the tune was released. Look for it to score even more action during next week’s session, when it officially impacts at this format. Finally, Ali Gatie and Alessia Cara‘s collaboration “Welcome Back” was welcomed solidly by the Top 40 panel, settling in fourth place with 25 adds from the panel.

Charting singles from Madison Beer, Sam Smith and Zoe Wees returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.
