ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 1, 2021)

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: with a little magic, this week’s session ended in a tie. Let’s add ’em up:

GOOD 4 THREE DOZEN: In a tie atop the adds report at the format, the enduring “Good 4 U” from superstar Olivia Rodrigo scored 36 more adds this week, the same amount registered by K-pop group Tomorrow x Together with their track “Magic”. The former is well into the top 25 at the format, while the latter is likely to crack the top 50 in the next week or two.

Just behind those two songs, the impacting “Build A Bitch” from chart newcomer and TikTok star Bella Poarch secured a third place finish with 29 adds this week. The song entered the top 50 on last week’s Top 40 chart update at #46.

Charting singles from Mooski, NF and Polo G returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 30, 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 one peachy holiday weekend romp up the pop radio chart, here’s what’s ripening at the format this week:

YOU’RE A PEACH: Justin Bieber easily picks up a third week atop on the Top 40 radio list with Daniel Caesar and GIVĒON-assisted “Peaches”, which is very likely to reign for a fourth week if the current trends remain on the same track. Elsewhere, the tune dips from 1-2 on the Rhythmic chart, but rises from 11-10 at the Hot AC format.

It’s another busy week in the top 40 with four new songs in the region, led by Marshmello and the Jonas Brothers with the collaboration “Leave Before You Love Me”, which bounces from 45-27. It’s their 11th and 13th top 40 hits at the format, respectively. Majid Jordan earns their first top 40 song in 7-1/2 years with “Waves Of Blue”, which splashes up the list from 42-36. Rising from 41-39, “I Did It” is still moving for DJ Khaled with Post Malone, Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Baby and DaBaby. As individual artists, this single marks their 12th, 14th, fifth, first and fourth top 40 hits, respectively. Polo G also takes his recent #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 into the top 40 on the pop radio list, as “Rapstar” advances from 44-40. It’s his first top 40 hit here, though he’s had plenty on both the Rhythmic and Urban charts.

Two new songs enter the top 50 this week: TikTok star and chart newcomer Bella Poarch comes in at #46 with her viral hit “Build A Bitch”, while Em starts without a bullet at #48 with “Say What You Mean”.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 23, 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 butter-flavored bounce up the pop radio chart, here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

LIFE’S A PEACH: Justin Bieber scores a second week at #1 on the Top 40 chart with Daniel Caesar and GIVĒON-assisted “Peaches”. The collaboration also remains atop the chart at the Rhythmic format for a second week.

Five new singles reach the top 40 this week, with the latest single from BTS leading the way with a high debut at #27. “Butter” is their eighth top 40 hit at the format, six of which were credited for their full run and the seventh coming last year when “Savage Love” hit the top spot for Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo in a remixed form. With a likely #1 album coming in Sour next week, Olivia Rodrigo leaps into the top 40 at #36 with “Good 4 U”, her third chart hit from the set. Newcomers Mimi Webb and Sara Kays lift into their top 40 with their first hits to date, respectively: the former’s “Good Without” is up from 44-38, while the latter’s “Remember That Night?” rises from 41-39. Finally, up 45-40 this week, NF returns with his fifth top 40 hit at the format in “Just Like You”.

In the top 50, we have another three entries: at #42, Majid Jordan swims onto the pop list with “Waves Of Blue”. At #45, it’s Marshmello and the Jonas Brothers with “Leave Before You Love Me”, which impacts at both the Hot AC and Top 40 formats this week. Finally, at #49 on the list, Cheat Codes and Tinashe are in with “Lean On Me”, which is unrelated to the song of the same title that became a major hit for Bill Withers in 1972 and Club Nouveau in 1987.

NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of February 5, 2016

On "Sale" this week.

On “Sale” this week.

Snow may be hitting the Northeast again overnight, but this week’s New Music Friday will keep you nice and toasty with all the hottest new jams. Here are this week’s notable albums and singles:

  • WIZ KHALIFA — Khalifa (iTunes)
    • Six months ago, Khalifa’s Blacc Hollywood entered at #1 on the Billboard 200 list, so it’s a bit of surprise to see a new set from him this soon. We’ll see if his recent Twitter fight gets him any added sales. Nothing from the album is currently at radio, but “Bake Sale”, an instant grat at the time of release, is still in the top 100 on iTunes.
  • FUTURE — EVOL (iTunes)
    • This album is a Saturday release, and though Khalifa has a one-day advantage, this will certainly be an interesting race to #1 for both rappers. The Georgia performer’s DS2 and collaboration on What A Time To Be Alive came in at #1 on the Billboard 200 last year, and his hot streak is definitely burning.
  • CHARLES KELLEY — The Driver (iTunes)
    • Kelley is at the wheel as his first solo effort travels the road to retail. The title track serves as the lead single, a top 50 hit at Country radio, and the set features several collaborations. It should be able to make the top 20 in sales.
  • More albums out this week: DIIV‘s Is The Is Are (iTunes), Drowning Pool‘s Hellelujah (iTunes), Elevation Worship‘s Here As In Heaven (iTunes), Elton John‘s Wonderful Crazy Night (iTunes), Foxes‘s All I Need (iTunes), Lucinda Williams‘s The Ghosts Of Highway 20 (iTunes), Majid Jordan‘s Majid Jordan (iTunes), Nothing But Thieves‘s Nothing But Thieves (iTunes), SWV‘s Still (iTunes), The Cult‘s Hidden City (iTunes), NOW That’s What I Call Music 57 (iTunes)
  • More EPs out this week: Tigertown‘s Lonely Cities (iTunes)

New digital-only singles that you can buy this week include:

  • “Don’t Let Me Down”, The Chainsmokers featuring Daya (iTunes)
  • “From The Ground Up”, Dan + Shay (iTunes)
  • “Jimmy Choo”, Fetty Wap (iTunes)
