ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 16, 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: our musical map of the soul leads us to a winning collaboration from BTS and Halsey, while singles from Push Baby and Travis Scott also push towards big starts. Let’s add ’em up:

IT’S A “BOY”: K-popping into the top spot on this week’s adds report, “Boy With Luv” by BTS and Halsey earns a huge first-week total at the Top 40 format, picking up 109 stations on impact. That sum is more than enough to give the group their biggest start to date and should launch this single well up the chart towards their highest-peaking entry at the format ever. Meanwhile, Halsey has history at the top with three #1 songs here, all of them collaborations, and we’ll see if she’s due for a fourth. “Boy” did not impact at any other format this week, but it may earn some Hot AC and Rhythmic airplay as the spring rolls on.

Travis Scott is also looking awake and alert with The Weeknd-assisted “Wake Up”, which falls into third place with 40 stations. A recent top 20 song on the Rhythmic survey, “Wake” should climb just as high on the Top 40 list. Additionally, Push Baby, a quartet who formerly charted as Rixton, is showing promise with a fifth place finish at 26 stations for “Mama’s House”. In 2014, the band’s best-performing song under their previous name, “Me And My Broken Heart”, reached #6 that June.

Next week, look out for impacting singles from Bazzi, Dan + Shay and MAX to continue to shine ahead of the summer season.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. BTS featuring HALSEY, “Boy With Luv” (BigHit/Columbia)
2. LIL NAS X, “Old Town Road” (Columbia)
3. TRAVIS SCOTT featuring THE WEEKND, “Wake Up” (Epic-Republic)
4. JONAS BROTHERS, “Cool” (Republic)
5. PUSH BABY, “Mama’s House” (SRV/Republic)
6. KELLY CLARKSON, “Broken & Beautiful” (Atlantic/EMG)
7. LEWIS CAPALDI, “Someone You Loved” (Capitol)
8-T. BILLIE EILISH, “When The Party’s Over” (Darkroom/Interscope)
8-T. KHALID, “Talk” (RCA)
10. LIZZO, “Juice” (Atlantic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 9, 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: the Jonas Brothers give us the news that it’s cool to add their new song, and the pop panel just so happened to listen. It’s chilling and it’s thrilling, so let’s add ’em up:

“COOL” HEATS UP: No surprise to see the Jonas Brothers back at the top of this week’s adds report with “Cool”, their follow-up to the massive Hot AC and Top 40 smash “Sucker”. Their latest track earns a sizable 114 stations in its first week and could become the trio’s second top ten song in a row by the summer. There’s no word on if an album is on the way, but given the reaction to these two singles thus far, it’s sure to be one of the biggest pop sets of the year if it surfaces.

Jennifer Lopez also sees some nice results for the French Montana-assisted “Medicine”, which scores a third place finish with 25 stations on impact. The collaboration was also the Most Added track at the Rhythmic format, earning an additional 24 adds. It’s the singer’s first title to impact on the HITCO label, who charted at the format last year with Big Boi‘s “All Night”, going as high as #27 that July.

Next week, impacting releases by Betty Who (“I Remember”) and Lewis Capaldi (“Someone You Loved”) should see some good action here, but a potentially reactive collaboration from BTS and Halsey (“Boy With Luv”) could steal the show.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. JONAS BROTHERS, “Cool” (Republic)
2. LIL NAS X, “Old Town Road” (Columbia)
3. JENNIFER LOPEZ featuring FRENCH MONTANA, “Medicine” (HITCO)
4. BILLIE EILISH, “When The Party’s Over” (Darkroom/Interscope)
5. LIZZO, “Juice” (Atlantic)
6-T. IN REAL LIFE, “Crazy AF” (Hollywood)
6-T. KHALID, “Talk” (RCA)
6-T. RACHEL CROW, “Up All Night” (S-Curve)
9. LAUV & TROYE SIVAN, “I’m So Tired…” (Capitol-in2une/AWAL)
10. ALLY BROOKE featuring TYGA, “Low Key” (Latium/Atlantic)

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: it’s back to the record ranch with the current viral hit from Lil Nas X, but a few new titles are riding into the top ten as well. Yeehaw! Let’s add ’em up:

A LIL MORE ACTION: Headed down the “Old Town Road” once more, rapper Lil Nas X gets a lil boost at the format, as 44 new stations come in for his first single to chart on the Top 40 list. Meanwhile, the top impacting release comes from newcomer Kiana Ledé, whose “Ex” slides into second place with 28 stations. The song is currently in the top 20 at Rhythmic radio, while also rising again (after a brief descent) at the Urban format, where it sits in the top 30.

Elsewhere, Ciara starts out solidly with a fourth place finish and 18 first-week stations for “Thinkin Bout You”, which she hopes to push into the top 40 for her first appearance in the region since 2009’s Justin Timberlake-assisted “Love Sex Magic”. A number of proven hits from past weeks, including songs by Ally Brooke, Billie Eilish and Mabel, continue to remain active here.

Next Tuesday will feature a competitive session at the format, as impacting titles from In Real Life, Jennifer Lopez, the Jonas Brothers, Kelly Clarkson and Rachel Crow are among the top names currently in the mix. Will anyone else jump in?

This week: saddle up for the adventure with the help of a short track that’s going long at several radio formats. Grab your horse and let’s add ’em up:

It’s new at a total of 30 stations this week. You can bet on this horse, or rather, this song to make it into the top 50 by the weekend.

Below “Old”, established titles by AJ Mitchell, Mabel, Twenty One Pilots and others populate much of the rest of the top ten.

Lizzo‘s “Juice” should deliver a tasty addition to next week’s session, but who else will be sipping on adds? Stay tuned.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 19, 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: we’re on a trip to “La La Land” with Bryce Vine and YG, but will its final destination be the top spot? Put your seatbelts on and let’s add ’em up:

LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO “LAND”: The Bryce is right for the Top 40 panel, as Bryce Vine’s new single, the YG-assisted “La La Land”, sneaks past the competition to score the Most Added title this Tuesday with 39 stations on impact, just one add ahead of last week’s leader, “Here With Me” by Marshmello featuring CHVRCHES. Vine’s song “Drew Barrymore” got to #15 in October, marking his only chart single thus far (though that will soon change.) YG, though not particularly known at the Top 40 format, was also featured on his highest-charting song to date, 2014’s “Don’t Tell ‘Em”. It went as high as #5 that October for singer Jeremih.

Twenty One Pilots also has a good start for “Chlorine”, tying for third place this week with 25 stations on impact, with “Pretend” CNCO earning 15 stations during the session for a ninth place finish. Both songs could enter the top 50 by the end of the month.

There are no new titles on the schedule at the moment, though that could change by the end of the week. Stay tuned!

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. BRYCE VINE featuring YG, “La La Land” (Sire/Warner Bros.)
2. MARSHMELLO featuring CHVRCHES, “Here With Me” (Joytime Collective/Glassnote-Republic)
3-T. MABEL, “Don’t Call Me Up” (Capitol)
3-T. TWENTY ONE PILOTS, “Chlorine” (Fueled By Ramen/EMG)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 12, 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: Marshmello gets toasty with his latest single featuring CHVRCHES, as several other competitors race into the top five. What s’more can I say? Let’s add ’em up:

NOW “HERE” THIS: He’s soft and gooey and has plenty of big singles too. Marshmello is back with “Here With Me”, his current collaboration with the trio CHVRCHES, which you’ll find here at the summit on this Tuesday’s report with 83 adds on impact. That total should easily give the featured act their highest-charting single at the format, having just entered the top 50 for a few weeks in January with the Alternative crossover hit “Miracle”. (Other charting entries by the act at that format have been serviced to the pop airwaves, such as “Bury It” and “The Mother We Share”, but have missed entering the survey.) Of course, Marshmello is coming off a multi-format #1 song with the Bastille-assisted “Happier”, which is just about to fall out of the top ten here.

Lauv and Troye Sivan are also looking very good with their first collaboration together, “I’m So Tired…”, which started in second place with 50 stations. Lauv has two top 40 songs to date, while Sivan has four: both performers were in the top 40 earlier this year with their own individual collaborations that peaked at #30 and #33, respectively. This one should (hopefully) do a little better.

Next week, look out for impacting titles from Bryce Vine, CNCO and Twenty One Pilots, all of which have solid early support.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. MARSHMELLO featuring CHVRCHES, “Here With Me” (Joytime Collective/Glassnote-Republic)
2. LAUV & TROYE SIVAN, “I’m So Tired…” (Capitol-in2une/AWAL)
3. B. BLANCO, TAINY, S. GOMEZ & J BALVIN, “I Can’t Get Enough” (NEON15/Friends Keep Secrets/Interscope)
4. JONAS BROTHERS, “Sucker” (Republic)
5. MABEL, “Don’t Call Me Up” (Capitol)
6. LIL PEEP & ILOVEMAKONNEN featuring FALL OUT BOY, “I’ve Been Waiting” (Columbia)
7. BEBE REXHA, “Last Hurrah” (Warner Bros.)
8. AJ MITCHELL, “All My Friends” (Epic)
9. ALLY BROOKE featuring TYGA, “Low Key” (Latium/Atlantic)
10. PANIC! AT THE DISCO, “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” (Fueled By Ramen/EMG)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 5, 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: Brothers, can you spare a hit? The return of the Jonas Brothers has the pop world shook, as plenty of other new records reach the lower rungs of the top ten. Let’s add ’em up:

BROTHERS IN CHARMS: Welcome back, Jonas Brothers! The group’s first single since 2013, “Sucker”, received a massive 153 adds on impact, easily securing the top spot on this week’s adds report at the format. This is trio’s biggest one-week total to date. It should be a quick ride up the chart for the guys, whose release stormed into the top 30 after just two days of airplay. Their highest-charting tune to date on the Top 40 chart, “Burnin’ Up”, spent two weeks at #12 in August 2008. Will their seventh top 40 entry be the one that finally enters the top ten? Stay tuned, suckers!

With his follow-up to “Girls”, which peaked at #38 a few months back, AJ Mitchell lands in fifth place this week with a total of 23 stations for “All My Friends”. Following just behind him with one fewer station, Galantis and OneRepublic are in sixth place, as “Bones” shows some strength with the panel. Look for both songs to reach the top 50 in the next week or two.

Next week, look for the Benny Blanco collaboration “I Can’t Get Enough”, which features Tainy, Selena Gomez and J Balvin, to rule the report. (It just missed the top ten this week.) Also on the schedule: cool new songs from Andy Grammer, James Bay featuring Julia Michaels and Lauv with Troye Sivan.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (ELEVEN)
1. JONAS BROTHERS, “Sucker” (Republic)
2. THE CHAINSMOKERS featuring 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Who Do You Love” (Disruptor/Columbia)
3. BEBE REXHA, “Last Hurrah” (Warner Bros.)
4. LIL PEEP & ILOVEMAKONNEN featuring FALL OUT BOY, “I’ve Been Waiting” (Columbia)
5. AJ MITCHELL, “All My Friends” (Epic)
6. GALANTIS featuring ONEREPUBLIC, “Bones” (Big Beat/EMG)
7. BILLIE EILISH, “When The Party’s Over” (Darkroom/Interscope)
8-T. PANIC! AT THE DISCO, “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” (Fueled By Ramen/EMG)
