RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 16, 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 all the important juicy fruit facts and chart champs, here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

POP GOES THE PEACHES: Justin Bieber climbs a notch to the top of the pop radio chart with Daniel Caesar and GIVĒON-assisted “Peaches”. This is his second #1 song of 2021: he previously led the list for a week in February with the Benny Blanco-assisted “Lonely”.

The international dance hit “Friday” moves up from 42-38 on the chart for four artists that are all scoring their first top 40 entry here: Riton and Nightcrawlers, both DJ acts, as well as featured artists and social media personalities Mufasa and Hypeman. A notch lower, there is one other newcomer checking into the top 40 this week: Brazilian star Anitta, who blasts onto the list at #39 with “Girl From Rio”.

Newcomer Mimi Webb leads a pack of top 50 entries with “Good Without”, which comes in at #44. It recently entered the top 20 nationally in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Just behind her, NF lands at #45 with “Just Like You”, the second top 50 entry from the mixtape Clouds at the format. (The title track spent a week at #50 in late March.) Coldplay is hoping to earn their first top 40 single since 2017 with “Higher Power”, which bows at #47. Finally, at #49, Major Lazer is back on the chart with the Sia and Labrinth-assisted “Titans”.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (May 4, 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: superstar Billie Eilish is happier than ever at the top of the adds report. Let’s add ’em up:

A “POWER” GRAB: Taken from her upcoming album Happier Than Ever, Billie Eilish easily grabs the top spot on the adds report at Top 40 radio with “Your Power”, picking up 141 commitments in its first week. Unsurprisingly, the track also led this week’s report at Alternative radio, earning 48 adds there.

The numbers drop off significantly from there, with several new or emerging collaborations taking up the rest of the top four.

Charting singles from AJR, Kali Uchis and Lil Nas X returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next week for another action-packed adds session.

Silversun Pickups pick up their first charting tune at #37 with this past week’s Most Added song at the Alternative radio format: a remake of Martika’s 1989 hit “Toy Soldiers”. Zedd and Jasmine Thompson start at #39 with “Funny”. The collaboration will be impacting at the Top 40 format on Tuesday, followed by a push at the Hot AC format next week. Lastly, a new group based in Utah checks in at #40: Blindlove‘s “I Wanna Be Okay” is headed up the Alternative chart, as it continues to spread across the panel.

Chart Notes:

  • The new weather report says that Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande‘s global hit “Rain On Me” will be sticking around at the top of my personal chart for some time, as it continues to pour for a second week. Taylor Swift‘s “Cruel Summer” kindly takes the Biggest Mover title, moving up from 37-30 in its second week in the countdown. Songs from Kacey Musgraves and Ava Max are new to my list on this update: the former’s “Oh, What A World” enters at #38, just ahead of its impact at the Triple A format, while the latter’s “Kings & Queens” jumps in at #39, which is looking for some royal Top 40 adds in early July.

Chart Notes:

  • Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande‘s big hit “Rain On Me” storms the top spot with a 3-1 move in its fifth week on my personal chart, raining on Dua Lipa‘s pop parade after an eight-week stretch at the summit with “Break My Heart”. The pair of pop bops are certainly worthy of both the Song Of The Summer title and a high placing on my year-end survey in December. Four tracks debut on the latest update, with “My Own Soul’s Warning” by The Killers leading the pack at #32. It’s the follow-up to “Caution”, which just spent the past six weeks at #2. From there, “Cruel Summer” from Taylor Swift comes in at #37, the fifth entry to rank from her Lover album, while Cam‘s “Redwood Tree” and Tessa Violet‘s “Bored” land at #39 and #40, respectively. Violet is the only newcomer in the mix, while Cam earns her second top 40 song.

Chart Notes:

  • Dua Lipa‘s “Break My Heart” scores a huge eighth week at #1 on my chart, becoming the first song to achieve that long of a run since 2013. It will likely be replaced soon by Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande‘s “Rain On Me”, which moves from 7-3. Currently running in an ad for Tyson Foods, “Family” earns Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors their first entry on my chart at #35. One spot lower, Neon Trees is in with “New Best Friend”. The #36 debut is the second single off the forthcoming album I Can Feel You Forgetting Me and was the Most Added song at the Alternative radio format this past Tuesday.

Chart Notes:

  • Dua Lipa‘s “Break My Heart” is parked at #1 for the seventh week on my personal chart, making it the first track to spend that long at the top since 2017. Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande have the Biggest Mover for the second consecutive week, jumping from 18-7 with “Rain On Me” in the song’s third week in the top 40. Will it reach the top spot by the end of June? Stay tuned. Meanwhile, two debuts land on the chart, both from artists who certainly aren’t strangers to my chart: the Goo Goo Dolls and Mandy Moore. The former’s “Fearless” has no fear entering at #37, while the latter’s “Tryin’ My Best, Los Angeles” does its best with a start at #39.
