RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (February 9, 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. Alas, we won’t be thanking the Academy for any awards tonight, but we can award some top pop hits with this analysis. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

TO THE MAROON AND BACK: Maroon 5 holds at #1 for the second week on the Top 40 chart with “Memories”. The big hit is now up to its 11th week at the top on the Hot AC chart and also remains strong at the AC format, where it holds at #6 this week. The battle for next week’s #1 tune should be an interesting one, with both “Memories” and Post Malone‘s recent chart-topper “Circles” (at #2) in the hunt for an extra frame, as Dua Lipa‘s “Don’t Start Now” (at #4) continues its ascent through the top five.

The big midweek release from Khalid and Disclosure, “Know Your Worth”, blasts onto the survey at #33. The tune becomes their tenth and third top 40 entries, respectively. As “Juicy” continues to drip down the chart, Doja Cat rises from 41-34 with her second top 40 single, “Say So”. Justin Bieber also breaks into top 40 with the Quavo-assisted “Intentions”, another of the songs from his forthcoming album Changes, at #39. It’s the 28th top 40 hit for Bieber and the seventh solo entry for the Migos member. The track is the follow-up to “Yummy”, which has stalled out after a very short run and tumbles from 12-16.

All three top 50 debuts on this week’s update are performed by women: Meghan Trainor with the Nicki Minaj-assisted “Nice To Meet Ya”, Noah Cyrus with “July” and Demi Lovato with “Anyone”. They start at #44, #45 and #48, respectively. Trainor’s track also enters the top 50 (#43) on this week’s Hot AC chart, where Cyrus’s song is up to #38. (Lovato’s cut is just below the top 50.)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (February 2, 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:

MAROONED AGAIN: With the song that’s now spent ten big weeks at #1 on the Hot AC chart, Maroon 5 scores their 11th #1 hit at the Top 40 format with “Memories”, climbing from 3-1. The multi-format hit rises about 790 spins week-to-week. For lead singer Adam Levine, the tune marks his 13th #1 on the chart, having reached the top as a featured artist on singles by Gym Class Heroes and R. City.

Four new releases enter the top 40 at the format this week, all by solo women, including one newcomer. Lizzo‘s “Cuz I Love You” is up from 49-30, earning the recent Grammy-winning performer her fourth top 40 hit at the format. Just behind her is Taylor Swift with “The Man”, which makes a high debut at #31. It’s also her 31st top 40 single here and the fourth from her current album Lover. Selena Gomez takes her 18th trip into the top 40 as a soloist with “Rare”, leaping from 44-37. It officially impacts at the format on Tuesday. Finally, first-timer Chelsea Cutler moves from 43-39 with “Sad Tonight”. The single is taken from her debut album How To Be Human, which was released a couple of weeks ago.

After a single swap from “Juicy”, which drops to #36 this week, Doja Cat meows back into the top 50 at #41 with “Say So”. It seems likely that it’ll reach the top 40 next weekend. The only other entry of note in the region comes from Hot Chelle Rae, who are back in the top 50 for the first time since the spring of 2014 with “I Hate LA”. It lands at #50.

ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2019: #80-71

As 2019 and the decade draw to a close, it’s time for the annual Top 100 of the year! According to my tabulations, these titles ranked as the most successful on my personal chart. The year was full of love, found and lost, from “Higher Love” and “Lover” to “Somebody You Loved” and more. Time was the essence, whether it was “All The Time” or “The Last Time”, and the light guided the way towards the upper half of the list, including “Light On” and “Lights Up”.

So, come along with “ME!” as I count down the hits, won’t you? Let’s get some numbers rolling…

The 2019 chart year encompasses a period of 52 weekly surveys from the chart dated December 2, 2018 to the chart dated November 24, 2018. Peaks listed reflect the highest position reached by the final list of this period. For any ties in points, a song with the higher peak is listed first, and further ties are broken by the weeks at a song’s peak position and the amount of time charted in the top 40. 167 titles had at least one point qualify towards the year-end chart, a decrease from the 171 that did so in 2018.

80. SHAWN MENDES, “Lost In Japan”
Album: Shawn Mendes
Label: Island/Republic
Peak: #3 (2018)
