RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (August 15, 2021)

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 your favorite records and rumors, here’s all that’s popping at the format this week:

“U”, “VU” AND TWO: Pop star Olivia Rodrigo holds at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the fourth week with “Good 4 U”, while her past single “Déjà Vu” remains at #2 for the second week. The former title still leads the latter by over 800 spins.

With four recurrents being removed from the chart, there’s quite a bit of debut action in the top 40 and top 50. The highest of the four singles entering the top 40 comes from Lizzo and Cardi B. “Rumors” lands at #29, marking their fifth and 11th top 40 hits, respectively. Moving up from 43-38, Masked Wolf scores his second top 40 hit with “Say So”. Next, Conan Gray jumps from 42-39 with the song that becomes his fourth top 40 entry, “People Watching”. Lastly, the viral TikTok hit “Seaside” leaps from 45-40 for newcomer SEB, which is also on the move in the top 40 at the Alternative radio format.

Starting at #41, the Black Eyed Peas, Saweetie and Lele Pons hit the jackpot with their collaboration called “Hit It”. Madison Beer has a new entry at #45 with “Reckless”, which is followed by “Vacation” at #48, which teams two groups together for the first time: Dirty Heads and Train. The original version of the track (without Train) got to #10 on the Alternative radio chart in November 2017, but it’s been moving again recently thanks to a run on TikTok. One notch lower, Doja Cat meows in at #49 with “Need To Know”, marking the third song to chart from the Planet Her album. Finishing things off, Walker Hayes crosses from the country radio airwaves to pop playlists with a new entry at #50: “Fancy Like”.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 6, 2021)

ENJOY THE “VU”: With the follow-up to the recent chart-topper “Driver’s License”, which spent five weeks at #1, Olivia Rodrigo scored a very nice 121 adds on impact for “Déjà Vu”. The tune snuck into the top 40 last weekend and should see some good movement in the coming days. It tied for eighth place at the Hot AC format yesterday, which appeared due to a handful of stations that reported early.

Lil Nas X secured 49 adds during the session for “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)”, good for the runner-up spot. The single and its music video have been the subject of much online conversation recently, which helped propel it to a #1 debut on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Demi Lovato also entered the top five with the Ariana Grande-assisted “Met Him Last Night”, scoring 20 adds and a fifth place finish. A week ago, Lovato’s “Dancing With The Devil” impacted here with a total of 44 stations during its first week. Given the new single swap, we’ll see what occurs on the airplay chart in the coming weeks.

Charting singles from Addison Rae, Justin Bieber and Masked Wolf returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next week for another action-packed adds session.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (ELEVEN)
