RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (August 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. This week’s top 50 is a very fruitful one! For all the juicy details, here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

“SUGAR” RUSH: Earning his second consecutive #1 song from his sophomore solo album Fine Line, Harry Styles lifts from 2-1 on this week’s Top 40 chart with “Watermelon Sugar”. It’s just outside the top ten on the Hot AC radio chart. Meanwhile, his former #1 on both charts, “Adore You”, remains healthy in the top five: it holds at #3 at Hot AC radio and rebounds from 6-5 at Top 40.

Taylor Swift and Billie Eilish soar into the top 40 at the format with “Cardigan” and “My Future”, which start at #28 and #35 on the chart, respectively. It’s the 32nd top 40 entry for Swift and the fifth for Eilish, the latter of which impacts on Tuesday. The group Avenue Beat also enters the top 40 for the first time with “F2020”, rising from 44-40. This past spring, the three women impacted at the Country radio format with a song titled “Ruin That For Me”, but it did not chart.

Zedd and Jasmine Thompson tickle the format’s “Funny” bone with this week’s #48 debut, the new only entry in the top 50. The collaboration marks the first chart appearance for Thompson at this format.

“NOBODY’S” SUPPOSED TO BE HERE: After a day of heavy action, Maroon 5’s “Nobody’s Love” secures the love of the radio panel, picking up 143 Top 40 stations on impact. Finishing in a strong second place, Swift’s “Cardigan” warms up with 110 adds.

Impacting singles from DJ Khaled and Drake (#4), Jeremy Zucker (#6) and Jonas Blue and MAX (#8) also reached the top ten on impact, but with significantly smaller totals. “Popstar” is already inside the top 50 at the format. The latter two entries could enter the region (with continued support) during the latter part of August.

Charting singles from Avenue Beat and the late Juice WRLD returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap!

RADIO REPORT: What’s Popping At Top 40 Radio This Week (July 27-28, 2020)

It’s time once again to analyze the airwaves and find out if your favorite new releases will be lighting up your local station’s playlist this week. Which tunes will climb to the top and which ones will hit a stop? Here are four tracks impacting this week at the Top 40 format:

JEREMY ZUCKER – “Supercuts” (Republic)
Album: TBA (2020)
Past T40 History: Last March, Zucker entered the pop chart for the first time with his song “Comethru”, which got as high as #37.

JONAS BLUE & MAX – “Naked” (Astralwerks/Capitol)
Album: TBA (2020)
Past T40 History: Blue continues to struggle here: his highest-charting track, the William Singe-assisted “Mama”, hit #31 in 2017.

MAROON 5 – “Nobody’s Love” (222/Interscope)
Album: TBA (2020)
Past T40 History: This song entered at #36 on yesterday’s published chart, extending the popular band’s history to 28 top 40 hits.

TAYLOR SWIFT – “Cardigan” (Republic)
Album: Folklore (2020)
Past T40 History: It’s not quite “Lovefool” by The Cardigans, a #1 single for six weeks in 1997, but “Cardigan” should still be solid.

Among next week’s impacting titles is a Latin lovefest from J Balvin, Dua Lipa, Bad Bunny and Tainy. Will it rule for one day and pace ahead of other emerging titles? Stay tuned.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 26, 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. The end of July is here and the summer hits are taking over the chart and the heart… here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

HAVE A “HEART”: Dua Lipa earns her third #1 song at the Top 40 format with “Break My Heart”, which leaps from 3-1. Earlier this year, “Don’t Start Now” spent six weeks at the top, making her the only act to have more than one chart-topper in 2020. The hit also ranks at #9 on this week’s Hot AC chart update.

Earning their 28th top 40 single at the format, Maroon 5 vaults into the top 40 at #36 with “Nobody’s Love”. It’s their follow-up to “Memories”, which spent two weeks at #1 in February. The Juice WRLD and Marshmello collaboration “Come & Go” also enters at #40: it’s the third top 40 hit (and first posthumous entry) for the former artist, as the latter collects his ninth.

The only new title in the top 50 comes from DJ Khaled and Drake, who start at #50 with “Popstar”. This is the third collaboration between the two artists to reach the region here. The track is already in the top 20 on the Rhythmic radio chart and should approach the region on the Urban chart in the next week or two.
