RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (August 18, 2019)

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 this 50th anniversary of Woodstock, the time in which I would take stock of the radio action for the week is about to begin. Let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

“BAD” IS STILL GOOD: As she falls to #2 on the Alternative radio list, Billie Eilish‘s “Bad Guy” holds steady at #1 this week on the Top 40 chart for a second frame. The cut is already down more than 800 spins from last week, so you can expect that “Señorita” (which ranks at #3 on this update) will easily climb to the top next week for Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello.

Climbing from 42-38 on the chart, “Post Malone” marks the first top 40 songs for both Sam Feldt and RANI. Malone’s newest hit, the Young Thug-assisted “Goodbyes”, moves from 10-8 this week. It’s the first time that an artist has appeared in the top 40 at the same time that their name is featured in the title of a top 40 song since early 2012, when the legendary Mick Jagger was a featured artist on “THE (The Hardest Ever)” by will.i.am and Jennifer Lopez and inspired “Moves Like Jagger”, a #1 song for Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera. Rising from 45-39, “Good Things Fall Apart” gives Illenium his first top 40 single here and returns Jon Bellion to the top 40 for his third appearance to date. The late Avicii also lands in the top 40 for a sixth time with the Aloe Blacc-assisted “SOS”, up from 43-40. It’s Avicii’s first top 40 single here since 2014’s “Addicted To You”, which peaked at #39. Blacc was a vocalist on his only #1 track to date, 2013’s “Wake Me Up”, though he didn’t receive a featured credit for it; thus, “SOS” is his second top 40 hit.

Headed to Country radio later this month, Maren Morris‘s new Hot AC hit “The Bones” enters at #45. Morris has been charting at the Country format since 2016, but she topped both the Hot AC and Top 40 charts last spring and summer with the Zedd and Grey collaboration “The Middle”. Viral hit “Lalala” is in at #46 for format newcomers Y2K and BBNO$. Two spots lower, another K-pop group arrives on the survey: NCT 127 bows at #48 with a new English version of “Highway To Heaven”, their first hit here. Lastly, a collaboration from actor and singer Asher Angel and rapper Wiz Khalifa enters at #50. “One Thought Away” is Angel’s first song to chart at any radio format.

Chart Notes:

  • The English quartet Bastille earns their fifth #1 song on my chart with “Joy”, advancing from 3-1. In November, they earned their previous #1 hit with the Marshmello collaboration “Happier”, which spent four weeks at the summit. It’s featured on the album Doom Days, which came out last month. There’s a fair amount of debut action this week, with Noah Kahan‘s “Cynic” coming in the highest at #36. The tune marks his fifth top 40 entry to date; his most recent, a #5 song called “Mess”, falls a few spots to #25 on the current list. Landing at #37, we have the first collaboration together for Alexander Cardinale and Christina Perri. “Simple Things” is just below the top 50 at Hot AC radio and gaining well. Finally, at #39, a song that’s headed to Alternative radio in a few weeks: “Hotel Walls”, the second top 40 entry for Smith & Thell. Their first chart hit, “Forgive Me Friend”, spent three weeks at #6 this past spring. It remains in the top ten on the Triple A radio chart.

Chart Notes:

  • “Be Alright” leads my personal chart once again, giving Dean Lewis‘s hit a second week at #1. It’s still building at the Hot AC and Top 40 radio formats, reaching the top 20 at the former. Last week’s top debut by Sigrid, “Sucker Punch”, makes a big move from 38-27, as it becomes this week’s fastest-moving record in the countdown. Four new tunes land on the chart this week, led by a pair of notable collaborations from Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper and Jason Mraz featuring Meghan Trainor. The former, a cut off the chart-topping soundtrack to the movie A Star Is Born, is “Shallow”, landing at #36. The latter, the second radio single from Mraz’s current album Know., is “More Than Friends”, coming in at #37. “More” is the follow-up to “Have It All”, which got as high at #4 earlier this year. Just below those titles, Noah Kahan‘s “False Confidence”, his third top 40 hit, starts at #39, while O.A.R. returns with “Miss You All The Time”, their ninth chart entry, entering at #40. “Miss” is the group’s first single to make the top 40 since the fall of 2016.

Chart Notes:

  • Congrats to Dean Lewis on his first #1 on my personal chart, “Be Alright”, advancing from 2-1 this week. Lewis’s track is a recent chart-topper in his native Australia, while it’s climbing through the top 20 on the Hot AC chart here. It’ll likely stay at #1 next time around, though a handful of alternative crossovers from acts like Imagine Dragons and Panic! At The Disco, as well as a duet from Marshmello x Bastille, will look to claim the top spot soon. Three new titles are in the mix this week, with “Sucker Punch” by Sigrid coming in the highest at #38. A year ago, her first entry here, “Don’t Kill My Vibe”, went to #16. “Sucker” impacts at the Alternative format later this month. The first collaboration from Lauv and Julia Michaels follows at #39, “There’s No Way”. It’s one of (at least) eight singles impacting at the Top 40 format on Tuesday. Michaels topped my chart for a week in April of last year with “Issues”. Finally, at #40, the third top 40 single from the boy band Why Don’t We arrives. The title track from their current set 8 Letters is the group’s second song to chart this year, with “Trust Fund Baby” peaking at #14 during the spring.

Chart Notes:

  • It’s a chart first this week, as Niall Horan becomes the first person to score five #1 singles in a row from one album, climbing 2-1 with “Seeing Blind”. It’s a duet with Maren Morris from the album called Flicker, which also produced these chart-toppers from late 2016 to earlier this year: “This Town”, “Slow Hands”, “Too Much To Ask” and “On The Loose”. Notably, this collaboration has never been released as a radio single in the U.S., though it’s received unsolicited airplay at the Hot AC format. It’s quite a feat, and now we’ll have to wait some time before Horan releases his sophomore solo set to see if he can repeat the achievement. As a remix of Shawn Mendes‘s “Lost In Japan”, mixed by Zedd, takes over Top 40 radio, the hit becomes the week’s Biggest Mover, up 34-26 in its third week on. This week’s two entries come from newcomer Alec Benjamin, in at #36 with “Let Me Down Slowly”, and Bülow, checking in at #38 with her second top 40 entry, “Two Punks In Love”. The former track impacts at the Hot AC format on Monday, while the latter impacts at the Top 40 format during the middle of October.

Chart Notes:

  • Scoring a sixth week at #1 on my personal chart, though it does so without a bullet, this could be George Ezra‘s final week at the top with “Shotgun”. That being said, it’s been an outstanding run for the musician, who has two of my top tracks of 2018 with this song and “Paradise”, which had a three-week stay at the top. As Lukas Graham takes the title of Biggest Mover with their single “Love Someone”, up 38-31, Avril Lavigne returns to the top 40 for the first time since 2013 with “Head Above Water”, in at #39. It’s her 14th entry on my chart since 2002, when she debuted with her chart-topper “Complicated”.
