Chart Notes:

  • She first made my personal chart in 2000 with “There You Go”, and now, pop superstar P!nk has her seventh #1 on my list with “What About Us”. It rises from 4-1 this week, displacing Taylor Swift‘s “Look What You Made Me Do” after a total of three weeks at the top. Each of the singer’s last four albums, including a hits compilation, has included at least one #1 song, though it’s not always been the lead single. Her longest stay so far was in 2008, when “So What” had a six-week run.
  • This week’s Highest Debut is the third top 40 solo hit for One Direction‘s Harry Styles. “Kiwi” is new at #37. This single follows “Two Ghosts”, which recently peaked at #6 and is still in the top 20 this week. Styles’s newest radio release is one of two (so far, at least) scheduled to impact at Top 40 radio stations on Halloween. (We hope it’s a real treat for everyone!)
  • Climbing aboard at #39, “No Peace In Quiet” is the second single to make my chart from Delta Rae‘s EP titled A Long And Happy Life. The title track got as high as #26 this past May. “Peace” goes for adds this week at the Country radio format, so don’t forget to wish the band good luck on Monday!

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s pair of debuts are by solo males with their third top 40 singles: Niall Horan, at #36 with “Too Much To Ask”, and Scott Helman, at #38 with “PDA”. Horan’s two previous chart hits, “This Town” and “Slow Hands”, went to #1, with the latter single spending seven weeks at the top. (It’s currently at #13.) The three songs can found on his upcoming album Flicker, due October 20. Helman’s new one is the second single from Hôtel de Ville and follow-up to “Kinda Complicated”, a #4 hit from earlier this year. Two years ago, he peaked at #8 with “Bungalow” from an EP titled Augusta.
  • Due to Yom Kippur, commentary is limited this week, but it will return in full next week!

Chart Notes:

  • How does it feel to have eight #1 singles on my chart? Well, last week, just one performer could’ve given you the answer to that: Adele, who scored her first of eight in 2011 with “Rolling In The Deep”. However, this week, that achievement is tied by the one and only Taylor Swift, who rises 3-1 with “Look What You Made Me Do”, the first single from reputation. Her first #1 on my chart was “Love Story”, which spent three weeks at #1 in 2009. That single is tied with “Blank Space”, which had a three-week run in 2014-15, as her longest stretch at the top to date. Way to go, Taylor!
  • Ohio’s Walk The Moon scored three consecutive #1 songs on my chart from their last album, Talking Is Hard: “Shut Up And Dance” (three weeks, 2014), “Different Colors” (one week, 2015) and “Work This Body” (one week, 2016). That streak could continue with this week’s Highest Debut, “One Foot”, the first single from their forthcoming set. It’s new at #35. The song impacts at both Alternative and Triple A radio this week, and should perform well at both formats. Can the hot single also cross to Hot AC and Top 40 radio? Stay tuned.
  • Just a few spots below that band are this week’s two other debuts: “Find You” (#39) by Nick Jonas and “Dusk Till Dawn” (#40) by ZAYN featuring Sia. Jonas’s track is his second single to be released this year, with a full-length album expected in the next few months, while the latter track, though expected on ZAYN’s second solo album, is also featured in the trailer for the upcoming film titled The Mountain Between Us. All five members of One Direction now appear as soloists in the top 40, a chart first.

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut is by the legendary Irish group that last reached #1 on my chart in 2004, when they spent three weeks at the top with “Vertigo”. U2 is back with “You’re The Best Thing About Me”, making a splash at #36. On December 1, the band is due to release Songs Of Experience, a companion to their 2014 album titled Songs Of Innocence. (No, you’re not going to see it magically appear in your iTunes library, don’t worry.) The single is currently ranking on the Alternative, Hot AC and Triple A radio charts.
  • Two other newcomers enter on this week’s chart: trio Magic Giant is new at #39 with “Window”, while former America’s Got Talent winner Grace VanderWaal comes in at #40 with “Moonlight”. The Los Angeles act had a minor entry on the Alternative radio chart earlier this year called “Set On Fire”, while the New York singer/songwriter bubbled under my own list beginning late last year with “I Don’t Know My Name”. Stay tuned to see how they do!

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (September 12, 2017)

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: Sam Smith is more than “Good”, while Kelly Clarkson‘s “Love” has its chartbeat pumping! Plus, Taylor Swift is “Ready” for another big radio hit, Hailee Steinfeld and friends “Go” the distance, and much more. Turn up the pop power and get listening to these hits:

“GOOD” GOES FOR EXCELLENT: After receiving hourly airplay at iHeartMedia stations last Friday, Sam Smith hits the top of this week’s Most Added report with “Too Good At Goodbyes”, which begins at 127 stations. The track recently became his eighth top 40 hit at the format, following four main-credited singles, two collaborations with Disclosure and one with Naughty Boy. A new album from Smith is due later this year, which should be a super stocking stuffer for the kids… at least, those kids in need of a good cry after a failed relationship. At this rate, the single is likely to become his fifth top ten hit on the pop chart quickly, as it also makes some nice moves toward the top ten on the AC and Hot AC (and even Urban AC) charts.

THREE’S COMPANY: Three words can say a whole lot, and in the case of this week’s adds report, they can take up a lot of space in the titles toward the top of the list. With so many singles impacting at the format this Tuesday, it’s certainly not a surprise to see “Love So Soft” (#2, 73 stations) by Kelly Clarkson, “…Ready For It?” (#3, 57 stations) by Taylor Swift and “Let Me Go” (#4, 46 stations) by Hailee Steinfeld & Alesso featuring Florida Georgia Line & Watt getting the panel’s support. Rounding out the top five, “What Lovers Do” (#5, 20 adds) by Maroon 5 featuring SZA is also holding strong after a massive debut last week. How will they all do in the long run? We’re expecting big things this fall, so stay tuned!

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. SAM SMITH, “Too Good At Goodbyes” (Capitol)
2. KELLY CLARKSON, “Love So Soft” (Atlantic/RRP)
3. TAYLOR SWIFT, “…Ready For It?” (Big Machine/Republic)
4. HAILEE STEINFELD & ALESSO featuring FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE & WATT, “Let Me Go” (Republic)
5. MAROON 5 featuring SZA, “What Lovers Do” (222/Interscope)
6. DUA LIPA, “New Rules” (Warner Bros.)
7. BLACKBEAR, “Do Re Mi” (Beartrap/Alamo/Interscope)
8. CAMILA CABELLO featuring YOUNG THUG, “Havana” (Syco/Epic)
9-T. HALSEY, “Bad At Love” (Astralwerks/Capitol)

Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut marks the return of Kelly Clarkson, who was actually in my top ten at the top of the year with a song from The Hamilton Mixtape, “It’s Quiet Uptown”, which peaked at #6. She enters at #31 with “Love So Soft”, which serves as the lead single from her forthcoming album Meaning Of Life, due October 27. (Another tune from the set, “Move You”, was released with “Love” as a part of a pre-order package on Thursday.) Clarkson has three #1 songs to date, her last coming in 2011 with “Don’t You Wanna Stay”, a collaboration with Jason Aldean.
  • As Taylor Swift rises from 13-6 with “Look What You Made Me Do”, the current #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100, a new track from reputation is now on my chart. “…Ready For It?” was released last Sunday, picking up Top 40 and Hot AC adds almost immediately, and it starts at #40 this week. Will “Look” hit the top soon, with “Ready” following close behind? Stay tuned!
