Chart Notes:

  • After spending three weeks at #1 last year with their single “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”, the Backstreet Boys return to the top with “Chances”, leaping from 4-1. This is the first time the band has achieved back-to-back chart-toppers on my list since 2001. Both “Don’t” and “Chances” can be found on the group’s forthcoming album DNA, out in just under two weeks. The Biggest Mover this week rises up twelve spots from 37-25, and that belongs to “Bad Liar” by Imagine Dragons. Look for the track to earn some solid airplay by the end of January, when it impacts at the Triple A and Alternative formats. This week’s Highest Debut belongs to an act that’s searching for their fifth #1 title on my chart, Walk The Moon. “Timebomb” is new at #35. One notch lower, with their first chart entry since the fall of 2002, Westlife climbs aboard at #36 with their comeback hit “Hello My Love”. It’s already topped the iTunes lists in the United Kingdom and Ireland. One last debut, new at #40, pairs Calvin Harris and Rag’N’Bone Man for their first collaboration together. “Giant” will be looking for some giant Top 40 radio success when it impacts on January 22.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (January 8, 2019)

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: Post Malone wows the Top 40 panel with another reactive single, as the Backstreet Boys take their chances on a second release from their forthcoming album. Let’s add ’em up:

OUR LATEST POST: Though hot releases by Ava Max, Bad Bunny featuring Drake, Mark Ronson featuring Miley Cyrus and Zara Larsson remained strong on the leaderboard for the first session of 2019, it was Post Malone and his new track “Wow.” leading this week’s Top 40 report. The song impacted with 78 stations at the format, while also collecting 55 adds on the Rhythmic panel, the Most Added song there, and 40 adds at Urban radio, taking a fifth place finish. Over the holiday break, “Wow.” topped a few different sales and streaming charts, including the main U.S. lists on Apple Music, iTunes and Spotify. Look for it to climb into the top 40 here by the end of the week.

Following the band’s top 20 hit “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” from last year, the Backstreet Boys are well on their way to a second chart entry off their new set DNA, out in just over two weeks. “Chances” impacts with a pretty solid 22 stations and a seventh place finish this week. It’s already in the top 20 on the Hot AC chart, a format where “Don’t” reached the top ten.

Next week, look out for impacting songs by Lauren Daigle (at #10 this week) and Sam Smith & Normani to dominate the list.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. POST MALONE, “Wow.” (Republic)
2. MARK RONSON featuring MILEY CYRUS, “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart” (RCA)
3. AVA MAX, “Sweet But Psycho” (APG/Atlantic)
4. ZARA LARSSON, “Ruin My Life” (TEN/Epic)
5. BAD BUNNY featuring DRAKE, “MIA” (Rimas/OVO Sound/Warner Bros.)
6. LOUD LUXURY featuring BRANDO, “Body” (Armada/in2une)

Chart Notes:

  • Congrats to newcomer Alec Benjamin, whose first top 40 hit becomes my first #1 song of 2019. “Let Me Down Slowly” is now at the top in its 15th week on the chart, which is a fairly slow climb, but by no means a record. The song is included on his mixtape called Narrated For You, which came out late last year. Seeb x Bastille take “Grip” up from 33-24, earning it the title of Biggest Mover on my newest update. A pair of new songs by Imagine Dragons (“Bad Liar”) and Jon Bellion (“Stupid Deep”) land at #37 and #38, respectively. A lyric video for the former debuted earlier this week, which is charting in countries like Australia, Norway and Switzerland, which the latter is being serviced to radio here in the U.S. very soon.

Chart Notes:

  • This will probably be Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper‘s last week atop my chart with their hit “Shallow”, which holds for a fourth week at the summit, losing its bullet in the process. As for a second radio single off the soundtrack to A Star Is Born, there’s no word yet if something will be serviced in the new year. Meanwhile, “Shallow” is still charting at three formats, ranking the highest (#7) on the Hot AC list. Newcomer Stephen Puth bows at #39 with the only debut on the chart this week: “Sexual Vibe”, his first release for a major label. Singer Charlie Puth is his older brother; he’s a writer on my current #8 song, “Love You Anymore” by Michael Bublé.

Coming in the highest, at #32, is a new one from the Canadian group The Strumbellas. “Salvation” is their third entry on my list; two years ago, “Spirits” reached #2 for three weeks, becoming their biggest hit so far. Landing at #37, songwriter Greg Holden debuts with his first top 40 hit as a singer with “Something Beautiful”. He’s previously written for acts such as A Great Big World and Phillip Phillips. A little further down the list, notable debuts from Kesha (“Here Comes The Change”, #39) and Avril Lavigne (“Tell Me It’s Over”, #40) also grace the chart, the former of which is featured in the film On The Basis Of Sex.
