Chart Notes:

This week’s Biggest Mover, blasting from 36-22, is the second entry on my chart for Mimi Webb: “House On Fire”, which reached the top ten nationally in the U.K. and Ireland. There are four debuts on the chart this week, led by Regard and Years & Years at #36 with “Hallucination”. Coldplay appears in the top 40 for the second time this month with “People Of The Pride” at #37, their new radio single at the Alternative and Triple A formats. Entering at #39, Kygo and DNCE hit the floor with “Dancing Feet”, as the featured act earns their first chart hit since late 2017. Finally, Tears For Fears rolls in at #40 with “Break The Man”, the second single from their comeback album The Tipping Point.

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s chart update doesn’t feel like a ghost town, even if the new #1 song is about one. American Idol alum Benson Boone earns his first #1 on my personal chart with “Ghost Town”, moving from 2-1 in its 16th week on the chart. While that may seem like a slow run, Boone’s song has been riding in the top five for the past ten weeks, stalling at #3 for six of them. Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift leap 12 notches to #19 with this week’s Biggest Mover: their duet version of “The Joker And The Queen”. A pair of new tunes enter the top 40: at #36, Mimi Webb burns onto the survey with “House On Fire”, while newcomer Dove Cameron is flying in at #40 with “Boyfriend”.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 24, 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: the sight of a new The Weeknd track gives the format something to look at after some dismal returns last week. Let’s add ’em up:

“EYES” ON NUMBER ONE: It may not be a hot Peter Gabriel remake, but The Weeknd is about to fly up the Top 40 list with “In Your Eyes”, spotted at 60 stations in its first week. The single is featured on his most recent album After Hours, which debuted on Friday and is expected to start at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Both “Blinding Lights” and “Heartless” are still in the top ten at the format, with the former still charging towards the top spot.

Ellie Goulding‘s current release is also on the move, as the Blackbear-assisted “Worry About Me” checks in with 33 stations for the week, good for a second place finish. Blackbear ranked at #2 on last week’s Top 40 chart with “Hot Girl Bummer”.

Charting songs from Lauv, Regard and Surfaces are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap. Stay safe out there.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (TWELVE)
1. THE WEEKND, “In Your Eyes” (XO/Republic)
2. ELLIE GOULDING featuring BLACKBEAR, “Worry About Me” (Interscope)
3. BENEE featuring GUS DAPPERTON, “Supalonely” (Republic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 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: Benee successfully taps into her supapowers during a weak week here at the format; more on that below. Let’s add ’em up:

BENEE THERE, DONE THAT: Unfortunately, it’s fair to say that the fear over the spread of the Coronavirus was the new entry that dominated this week’s adds report. It was inevitable: numbers were down severely and many stations reported no adds.

Of this week’s impacting songs, Benee‘s first release at the format, the Gus Dapperton-assisted “Supalonely”, managed to find a total of 30 stations on impact, making it the Most Added release today. On a normal week, it likely would’ve done much better.

Bazzi‘s latest single also pulled in 19 stations for a third place finish, as “Young & Alive” also struggled given the circumstances.

Charting songs from Demi Lovato, Lauv and Maren Morris are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap. Stay safe out there.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. BENEE featuring GUS DAPPERTON, “Supalonely” (Republic)
2. DEMI LOVATO, “I Love Me” (Island/Republic)
3. BAZZI, “Young & Alive” (APG/Atlantic)
4-T. LAUV, “Modern Loneliness” (AWAL/in2une)
4-T. SURFACES, “Sunday Best” (10K Projects/Capitol)
6-T. 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Old Me” (Interscope)
6-T. BRYCE VINE, “Baby Girl” (Sire/Warner)
6-T. MAREN MORRIS, “The Bones” (Columbia)
9-T. CHELSEA CUTLER, “Sad Tonight” (Republic)
9-T. SAINT JHN, “Roses” (Godd Complexx/HITCO)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (February 23, 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. A popular performer who’s known for some “Rules” is ruling the list, as several newer acts check in with debuts. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

“START” YOUR ENGINES: Dua Lipa earns her second #1 song on the Top 40 radio chart with “Don’t Start Now”, moving from 3-1 on the latest update. Of course, her first was the multi-format smash “New Rules”, which spent five weeks at the summit in early 2018. There are five different formats where the song currently appears in the top 30, including its former #1 rank on the Dance list. It also rises to #8 on the Hot AC chart, as it continues to make large gains week-to-week.

The multinational collaboration from DJ Snake, J Balvin and Tyga travels into the top 40 this week after an extended period just outside the region. “Loco Contigo” climbs from 41-37, giving DJ Snake his ninth top 40 single at the format, while J Balvin and Tyga each earn their seventh. Maren Morris moves from 43-39 with her recent #1 tune on the Country radio chart, “The Bones”. This is her second release to enter the region on the pop survey. Noah Cyrus also rises from 42-40 with “July”. It’s her fifth top 40 song.

Two additional songs make the top 50 on this week’s chart, led by Ali Gatie‘s “What If I Told You That I Love You” at #43. Last fall, “It’s You” briefly appeared in the region, peaking at #48. Further down, Monsta X starts at #49 with “You Can’t Hold My Heart”. A collaboration from French Montana, “Who Do U Love?”, got them to #23 on the chart in September and October of last year.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (January 26, 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. Just ahead of the Grammy Awards, we have some new winners on the airwaves. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

ANOTHER FINE POST: With a difference of only nine spins between #1 and #2 this week, Post Malone‘s enduring hit “Circles” returns to the top of the Top 40 chart for a sixth nonconsecutive week. The smash also holds at #4 on the Hot AC chart. Will it score a seventh week at #1 in time for the Super Bowl? Better yet, will it ever leave the chart? We may never know. Actually, we will, but it will have to wait until next Sunday.

Four new songs enter the top 40 at the format this week, three by performers who are new to the chart. The group Brockhampton is one, up from 41-35 with “Sugar”. Roddy Ricch leaps from 49-38 with a cut that’s also flying through the top 20 on the Rhythmic and Urban charts, “The Box”. It continues to hold at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 list. Regard‘s “Ride It” also lifts from 47-39 on the pop radio chart, while Fifth Harmony member Ally Brooke earns her third solo top 40 entry with “No Good”, rising from 45-40.

Additionally, there are four new entries in the top 50 this week, along with a single re-entry that’s been outside the region for almost five months. Newcomer Chelsea Cutler starts things off at #43 with “Sad Tonight”, which impacted at the format last Tuesday. It’s also a good week for Selena Gomez, who enters at #44 with the title track from her recent album Rare. After last appearing at #45 on the chart dated September 1, Maren Morris is on the rebound with “The Bones”, stepping back in at #47. The track is currently in the top ten on the Country and Hot AC radio lists. Grammy nominee Lizzo‘s “Cuz I Love You” debuts at #49, while the Mustard and Roddy Ricch collaboration “Ballin'” sneaks in at #50 to close out this week’s activities. The latter hit went to #1 on the Rhythmic and Urban charts earlier this month.
