RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 23, 2019)

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. Some say that talk is cheap, and while that’s not so far-fetched, it does change when it’s on top of the pop chart. Let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

WE NEED TO TALK: Earning his third #1 smash at the format since September of last year, Khalid leaps from 3-1 on this week’s Top 40 chart with “Talk”. Of those three hits, it’s the first by just himself to reach the summit; the other singles were with Normani and a three-way collaboration with Benny Blanco and Halsey. Accordingly, “Talk” is also the new #1 song on the Rhythmic chart, while it continues to gain in the top ten and top 20 on the Urban and Hot AC formats, respectively. Expect it to hang onto the top for a second week here on the pop survey, as Khalid’s main competition is still too far away to knock him out.

Further down the survey, the action isn’t nearly as exciting, but there are still a few notable titles to mention. Moving from 43-37, we have the 11th top 40 single at the format for Miley Cyrus with “Mother’s Daughter”. It’s the sole entry in the region this week. After debuting on Friday, the second chart collaboration by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello starts at #41. “Señorita” is likely to be this week’s Most Added record at the format on Tuesday evening and should see a nice rise through the top 40 by the weekend. Only one other song slides into the top 50 this week, a collaboration that’s already been to #1 on the Rhythmic chart: “Pure Water” checks in at #50 for Mustard and Migos. It also recently appeared in the top ten on the Urban chart. Should this song make the top 40 on the pop airwaves, it’ll be the first with the word “pure” in its title to enter the region in 20 years.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 18, 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: Taylor Swift gets “Down” with the Top 40 crowd once more, blasting up to the top spot on the Tuesday report. Take a deep breath in and out and let’s add ’em up:

“YOU”-NITED AS ONE: After the Brendon Urie-assisted “ME!” cleared the entire panel in one week back in late April, it’s no surprise to see Taylor Swift picking up another giant total for the follow-up single, “You Need To Calm Down”. This tune earns 129 stations in its first week, which falls below the 183 for “ME!”, but is still quite significant. Both songs can be found on Lover, which hits stores on August 23. “You” squeaked into the top 40 on last Sunday’s update and should be well into the top 30 by the next list to be published. It also led the adds report at Hot AC radio yesterday, scoring 42 stations in total.

Swift’s current single lands well ahead of the other impacting records in the region, including songs by LIVVIATove Lo and We Three, though all three acts managed to successfully place their songs in the top ten. (More results are below.)

Next week, Ava Max (who already appears in this week’s top ten) leads a pack of at least five impacting songs, which also includes the latest releases from Cyn, MKTO and more. Curious about who will land on top? So am I! Check back next Tuesday!

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. TAYLOR SWIFT, “You Need To Calm Down” (Republic)
2-T. LIZZO, “Truth Hurts” (Atlantic)
2-T. TOVE LO, “Glad He’s Gone” (Island/Republic)
4. LEWIS CAPALDI, “Someone You Loved” (Capitol)
5. MARK RONSON featuring CAMILA CABELLO, “Find U Again” (RCA)
6. MILEY CYRUS, “Mother’s Daughter” (RCA)
7-T. AVA MAX, “So Am I” (APG/Atlantic)
7-T. LIVVIA, “Dizzy” (12Tone Music)
7-T. THE CHAINSMOKERS featuring BEBE REXHA, “Call You Mine” (Disruptor/Columbia)
10. WE THREE, “Lifeline” (Palawan/JMA)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 16, 2019)

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. Wowzer, it’s been another busy week on the airwaves and we’ve got all the essential information for you. Let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

WOW, IT’S NUMBER ONE: After a slow run to the top of the pop chart, Post Malone‘s “Wow” climbs from 2-1 in its 23rd week in the top 40 to become the new #1 song at the format. “Wow” is Malone’s third chart-topper on the Top 40 survey, following the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted “Psycho” (four weeks) and “Better Now” (two weeks) from last year. The cut joins titles such as “Bad” and “Fly” (among others) in the category of #1 radio hits with the fewest number of characters.

There are three new entries in this week’s top 40, led by “Find U Again” from Mark Ronson and Camila Cabello, which makes a giant move from 41-30. It’s the third solo top 40 song for Ronson, who has also charted with the duo Silk City, and the 11th solo hit for Cabello, who previously charted with the quintet Fifth Harmony. Calming the #39 spot, it’s superstar Taylor Swift with “You Need To Calm Down”, which blasts straight into the region to become her 29th such entry here. Finally, swinging up from 42-40, we have the second top 40 track for the boy band In Real Life with “Crazy AF”. Top 40 radio isn’t exactly going crazy over this one: it’s been slowly moving up in the top 50 since early May and probably won’t get much further. Still, a top 40 song is a top 40 song.

On a roll and climbing into the top 50 at #43, Miley Cyrus debuts with “Mother’s Daughter”. The single can be found on her She Is Coming set, an EP that she released earlier this month. Newcomer Christian Paul also hits the list at #50 with “Strong”, becoming his first chart entry. His forthcoming EP is due at the beginning of July.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 11, 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: Miley Cyrus adds to the Top 40 family during a slower week on the adds report. Let’s add ’em up:

SHE IS COMING… TO POP RADIO: Cyrus’s “Mother’s Daughter”, from her EP titled She Is Coming, grabs 49 stations during its impact week and the freedom to become the Most Added song at the Top 40 format this Tuesday. That total is much lower than some of the triple digit finishes we’ve seen in recent weeks, though the cut is still its on way towards the top 50 for the official chart on Sunday. The full EP registered a top ten debut on the most recent update of the Billboard 200 list.

Much of the rest of the top ten is filled with familiar names, including Ally Brooke and Lizzo, though individual adds totals for a lot of songs trailed off beyond the top five. For instance, six songs tied for tenth place with a meager seven adds, which is fairly low for that position. Alas, these kinds of weeks occasionally happen…

Next week, impacting releases from LIVVIA and Tove Lo, as well as the current Alternative chart single from Illenium and Jon Bellion, join the pop parade.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP FIVE
1. MILEY CYRUS, “Mother’s Daughter” (RCA)
2. LIZZO, “Truth Hurts” (Atlantic)
3. THE CHAINSMOKERS featuring BEBE REXHA, “Call You Mine” (Disruptor/Columbia)
4. MARK RONSON featuring CAMILA CABELLO, “Find U Again” (RCA)
5. ALLY BROOKE featuring A BOOGIE WIT DA HOODIE, “Lips Don’t Lie” (Latium/Atlantic)

(The full list should be back next week, provided that the adds totals at the bottom of the top ten are back to normal.)
