RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 22, 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. There are monsters on the loose… well, that is, a few monster records are out there and landing on the chart. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

20K FOR 24K: 24KGoldn and Iann Dior remain at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the fifth week in a row with “Mood”. At the same time, it eclipses 20,000 spins in a week, becoming the first song to officially reach that total on a published update.

Four singles are new to the top 40 on this week’s chart. The highest of them comes from Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber, who race in at #37 with “Monster”. It’s the 11th top 40 song for Mendes and the 32nd for Bieber, both of whom are currently on the chart with other records from their respective forthcoming albums. Lil Nas X leaps from 46-38 with “Holiday”, his third top 40 hit at the format. Lifting from 41-39, Joji picks up his second top 40 tune and first on his own with “Your Man”. Finally, “Hawái” breezes into the top 40 for Maluma and The Weeknd, moving from 44-40. It’s their first and 16th top 40 entries at the format, respectively.

After a release on Thursday night, Miley Cyrus and Dua Lipa land at #49 with “Prisoner”. Meanwhile, “Hawái” isn’t the only tune on the rise for The Weeknd this week, as his solo release “Save Your Tears” bounces in at #50.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (November 17, 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: Billie Eilish leads the bill with a huge week for her latest release, but the new holiday hit from Lil Nas X is a cold hard winner too. Let’s add ’em up:

“I AM” NUMBER ONE: Billie Eilish connected with the Top 40 panel in a big way this week, earning 169 stations for “Therefore I Am”. The song debuted at #34 on last weekend’s published update, giving the young performer her sixth top 40 song to date. The adds continued at the Alternative and Hot AC formats, where it brought in another 42 and 16 stations, respectively.

Lil Nas X also debuted on the Top 40 report with “Holiday”, landing a second place finish with an impressive 92 adds on impact. It took first place at both Rhythmic and Urban radio this week, earning 44 and 34 adds, respectively.

Charting singles from Ariana Grande and Tate McRae returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 8, 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. The Top 40 radio panel should be electing a new #1 song later this month, but until then, let’s see what’s popping at the format this week:

YOU’RE GOLDN: 24KGoldn and Iann Dior remain very strong at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the third week in a row with “Mood”. The single gained more than 1,100 spins vs. last week and is well over 3,000 spins ahead of the song at #2. The summit will probably be pretty moody again next week, as the collaboration earns a fourth frame at the top.

Ariana Grande earns her 24th top 40 hit at the format with “34+35”, leaping from 45-33. It’s the second single to enter the top 40 from her recent #1 album Positions. Salem Ilese is also on the move with a recent viral TikTok hit “Mad At Disney”, up from 41-40 this week. It’s her first top 40 entry here.

In the top 50, Maluma‘s “Hawái” debuts at #47 on the chart, thanks in part to a new remix that features The Weeknd. Landing at #50, MAX starts on the chart with “Blueberry Eyes”, a collaboration that includes SUGA of the well-known K-pop group BTS. The song can be found on MAX’s album Colour Vision, which was released in September.
