In the radio world, “SoulMate” officially jumps into the top 40 at both the Hot AC and Top 40 formats. Two notches lower, at #37, Ariana Grande‘s “God Is A Woman” bolts onto the countdown, the second radio single from her upcoming Sweetener set. Its music video and lyric video are both in the top ten on YouTube’s Trending chart, with early airplay in several larger markets.

Chart Notes:

  • As A Great Big World holds at #1 for the second week with “Younger”, a very solid four debuts enter the top 40, led by “Born To Be Yours” from Kygo and Imagine Dragons at #37. The collaboration is starting to see some nice support at both Hot AC and Top 40 radio, despite the fact that Kygo’s song with Miguel, “Remind Me To Forget”, is garnering iHeartMedia-sponsored airplay (via their On The Verge integration program) at the latter format. A notch lower, entering at #38, Sheryl Crow is back with her first entry in just over 11 years with “Wouldn’t Want To Be Like You”, her first independently-released single to hit my chart. It features Annie Clark, who usually records as St. Vincent. Occupying the #39 and #40 spots, the new radio releases from Lissie and the Plain White T’s also join the pop party, the former with “Castles” and the latter with “Your Body”. Lissie replaces herself in the top 40 this week, as “Best Days” (which reached #4) falls out, while the Plain White T’s are charting here for the first time in nearly five years. (No, it’s not a hot Christina Aguilera cover.)

Chart Notes:

  • Congrats to Chad King and Ian Axel, better known as A Great Big World, who land their third #1 song on my personal chart with “Younger”, up 3-1. Their longest run at the top so far was in 2014 with “Already Home”, which spent seven weeks there. A pack of three tracks break into the top ten this week, led by George Ezra‘s “Shotgun”, bouncing from 16-8. It recently became his first #1 song in the United Kingdom. This week’s Biggest Mover belongs to last week’s Highest Debut: “Come On To Me” by Paul McCartney, jumping ten spots from 38-28, though Lenny Kravitz‘s “Low” nearly ties that move, as it leaps nine spots from 30-21. The only debut in the top 40, starting at #37, is the radio single from the soundtrack to Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. Just under the top 20 on the AC chart, “Fernando”, a cover of Abba‘s 1976 AC and CHR hit, is done by two of the film’s stars: Cher and Andy Garcia. At 72, Cher is the second-oldest female performer to ever make my list, just behind Christine McVie, who was 74 when “In My World” (with Lindsey Buckingham) had its last two weeks in my top 40 last summer. The two acts involved, Abba and Cher, charted in the top 40 of the Hot 100 together just once during the summer of 1974, when the former was in with “Waterloo” and the latter was in with “Train Of Thought”.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 19, 2018)

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: can you stand the pop pains of a split panel? Alessia Cara‘s “Pains” get a prescription for Top 40 traction, while Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande head to “Bed” for some Z’s and prominent stations. It is time to add ’em up:

GROW WITH THE FLOW: With four #1 songs to date at the format, Alessia Cara is well on her way to securing a fifth. Cara’s new one is “Growing Pains”, which easily secures the Most Added spot on this week’s Top 40 report, putting up 112 stations during its impact date today. Cara’s sophomore album is due sometime later this year.

Making a strong case for second place, labelmates Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande know how to talk the pillow talk with “Bed”, the first pop single from Minaj’s forthcoming album Queen. It blasts off with 46 stations on impact. The collaboration flew to #1 on iTunes upon release last Thursday. The two women are now teaming up on “The Light Is Coming”, a song from Grande’s upcoming album Sweetener. Much like “Bed”, expect that single to easily top the all-genre chart at iTunes tomorrow.

Elsewhere, impacting titles from Sabrina Carpenter and a Tiësto-led collaboration enter the top five and top ten, respectively.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. ALESSIA CARA, “Growing Pains” (Def Jam)
2. NICKI MINAJ featuring ARIANA GRANDE, “Bed” (YMCMB/Republic)
3. POST MALONE, “Better Now” (Republic)
4. 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Youngblood” (Capitol)
5. SABRINA CARPENTER, “Almost Love” (Hollywood)
6. CARDI B, BAD BUNNY & J BALVIN, “I Like It” (KSR Group/Atlantic)
7-T. KHALID x NORMANI, “Love Lies” (Right Hand/Keep Cool/RCA)
7-T. MAROON 5 featuring CARDI B, “Girls Like You” (222/Interscope)
9-T. MEGHAN TRAINOR, “Let You Be Right” (Epic)
9-T. TIËSTO & DZEKO featuring PREME & POST MALONE, “Jackie Chan” (Casablanca/Republic)

Chart Notes:

  • First-time collaborators Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa spend a fourth week at the top of my list with “One Kiss”, as the entire top five is bulleted and ready to fight for the top spot in the coming weeks. (Stay tuned to see who wins!) In the meantime, two songs debut on this week’s chart: the third top 40 single for the British trio Years & Years (“If You’re Over Me”) at #39 and a collaboration from British singer/songwriter MNEK and American actress/singer Hailee Steinfeld (“Colour”) at #40. Years & Years scored their biggest hit to date in April 2015, when “King” had a two-week run at #1. Neither of the soloists on the #40 song have charted here previously.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 12, 2018)

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: different Tuesday, same Cardi B madness! Plus, the panel is split over its plethora of new pop jams, but two notable collaborations jump ahead of the pack. Let’s add ’em up:

B IS FOR BIGGER: Change can be difficult at times, so for those of you that don’t like the concept, I think you’ll be satisfied with waiting another week before the next new Most Added song is crowned. Meanwhile, this week’s top title at the Top 40 format, now in its second week, is “Girls Like You” by Maroon 5, which is still generating a lot of buzz on the charts for its new remix featuring the previously mentioned Cardi B. This week, it checks in with another 47 stations, down from the 108 it took in on impact. There’s a tie for second place between Cardi B’s “I Like It”, with Bad Bunny and J Balvin, and “Better Now” from Post Malone, as both hits land a solid 36 stations each. All three tracks are racing up the Top 40 chart, though it’s very early on in the annual race for the coveted Song Of The Summer title. Stay tuned to see if any of them capture it (or if another song surprises. You never know!)

Beyond those three singles, plenty of impacting songs scored double-digit adds in this session, led by future Pride anthem “Colour” by MNEK featuring Hailee Steinfeld with 23 stations, coming in fourth place. It looks like it’ll become MNEK’s first top 40 song in two years, as he previously charted with Zara Larsson on the duet “Never Forget You”, reaching #5 at the format that May. It’s also a very good week for “Team”, which has Noah Cyrus and MAX thanking their new team of believers, 18 in all, which starts it in seventh place. Yesterday, it picked up a handful of Hot AC stations as well. Check out the rest of this week’s future hits below!

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. MAROON 5 featuring CARDI B, “Girls Like You” (222/Interscope)
2-T. CARDI B, BAD BUNNY & J BALVIN, “I Like It” (KSR Group/Atlantic)
2-T. POST MALONE, “Better Now” (Republic)
4-T. 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Youngblood” (Capitol)
4-T. MNEK featuring HAILEE STEINFELD, “Colour” (Capitol)
6. NOAH CYRUS & MAX, “Team” (RECORDS/RED/Columbia)
7. CHILDISH GAMBINO, “This Is America” (Wolf & Rothstein/RCA)
