RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 18, 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. Gather your crew for what’s popping at the format this week:

REMEMBER THE “NAME”: Earning a second week at #1 on the Top 40 chart, Lil Nas X‘s “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” lands just 34 spins ahead of the song at #2: “Good 4 U”, a future #1 at the format for Olivia Rodrigo. Meanwhile, “Montero” advances from 3-1 on the Rhythmic chart.

Post Malone leads a pack of five debuts in the top 40, as “Motley Crew” advances from 43-29 this week. It’s his 15th top 40 song to date. Up from 46-35, Billie Eilish picks up her eighth top 40 single with “NDA”. At three letters in length, it becomes one of the shortest titles to land on the chart, though we’ve had even shorter ones historically, including “Go”, “I”, “If” and “No”. Maroon 5 secures their 30th top 40 entry at the format with another relatively short title, “Lost”, lifting from 45-37. Kane Brown and Blackbear are next at #38 with “Memory”, which debuts at that position. It’s their third and eighth top 40 hits, respectively, though Brown has earned quite a few more on the Country chart. A fifth and final title moves from 41-40 to just sneak into the region, as TikTok star Nic D scores his first top 40 hit with “Fine Apple”. The song now joins a handful of other titles containing apples or pineapples to enter the chart, including “Apples, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie”, “Little Green Apples”, “One Bad Apple” and “Pineapple Princess”.

Currently in the top 20 on both the Rhythmic and Urban charts, “Thot Sh*t” twerks onto the pop radio list for Megan Thee Stallion at #49. One spot lower, we have another significant hit from the two radio lists: “Late At Night”, debuting at #50 for Roddy Ricch.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 30, 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 one peachy holiday weekend romp up the pop radio chart, here’s what’s ripening at the format this week:

YOU’RE A PEACH: Justin Bieber easily picks up a third week atop on the Top 40 radio list with Daniel Caesar and GIVĒON-assisted “Peaches”, which is very likely to reign for a fourth week if the current trends remain on the same track. Elsewhere, the tune dips from 1-2 on the Rhythmic chart, but rises from 11-10 at the Hot AC format.

It’s another busy week in the top 40 with four new songs in the region, led by Marshmello and the Jonas Brothers with the collaboration “Leave Before You Love Me”, which bounces from 45-27. It’s their 11th and 13th top 40 hits at the format, respectively. Majid Jordan earns their first top 40 song in 7-1/2 years with “Waves Of Blue”, which splashes up the list from 42-36. Rising from 41-39, “I Did It” is still moving for DJ Khaled with Post Malone, Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Baby and DaBaby. As individual artists, this single marks their 12th, 14th, fifth, first and fourth top 40 hits, respectively. Polo G also takes his recent #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 into the top 40 on the pop radio list, as “Rapstar” advances from 44-40. It’s his first top 40 hit here, though he’s had plenty on both the Rhythmic and Urban charts.

Two new songs enter the top 50 this week: TikTok star and chart newcomer Bella Poarch comes in at #46 with her viral hit “Build A Bitch”, while Em starts without a bullet at #48 with “Say What You Mean”.

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 door is open and all the chart activity is here, so let’s take a look at what’s popping at the format this week:

KEEP ON DRIVING: It’s a second week at #1 on the Top 40 chart for Olivia Rodrigo and her huge hit “Driver’s License”, which pulls ahead of the song at #2 by more than 1,800 spins. The tune looks poised to approach or eclipse 20,000 spins next week.

As expected, this week’s top new entry comes from Maroon 5 and Megan Thee Stallion at #30 with “Beautiful Mistakes”. It also enters in the top 30 (#24, to be exact) on this week’s Hot AC chart. It’s their 29th and fourth top 40 entries, respectively. Scoring his third top 40 song to date, Conan Gray rises from 43-37 with “Overdrive”, which matches the peak of “Maniac” from last year. AJR is also on the move with “Way Less Sad”, which jumps from 46-38. It’s the trio’s sixth trip into the top 40 here.

Down in the top 50, the duo Silk Sonic enters at #43 with “Leave The Door Open”. The act is a new project featuring Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, who are credited as solo artists as well. Fresh off his performance at the Pokémon Day Virtual Concert, Post Malone lands at #50 with his cover of Hootie & The Blowfish‘s “Only Wanna Be With You”. The original song spent three weeks at #1 in the fall of 1995.
