ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (February 18, 2020)

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: Top 40 programmers are dying to add the new song from Sam Smith, as its total paces well ahead of other impacting titles from Conan Gray and Monsta X. Let’s add ’em up:

“FOR” PLAY: With the title cut off their new album, Sam Smith bursts onto the adds report with “To Die For”, managing to score 148 stations on impact. The performer now has 13 top 40 songs to date at the format, with this single entering the airplay chart last weekend at #37. It should continue to ascend quickly here and at the Hot AC format, where it topped the report with 39 adds.

Newcomer Conan Gray picks up 32 stations on impact for “Maniac”, which lands in fourth place this week. It’s the first radio single off his forthcoming album Kid Krow, due next month. The act Monsta X also starts in the top five with “You Can’t Hold My Heart”, tying for fifth place with 22 stations on the log. The K-pop group is looking for their second top 40 entry with their new single. Will the two emerging records make the top 50 by the weekend? Stay tuned.

Charting songs from Doja Cat, Justin Bieber and Niall Horan are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (September 10, 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: Camila Cabello provides some double trouble with two cuts dominating on the report. If you don’t believe us, we’re no liars. Let’s add ’em up:

CABEL-LO AND BEHOLD: Cabello’s recent dual single release of “Liar” and “Shameless” is proving to be pretty strong in sales, streaming and on the radio, as the cuts pack a 1-2 punch on this week’s Top 40 adds report. Both tunes pick up over 120 adds each, with “Liar” pacing ahead with 138 and “Shameless” ending with 124. In short: they’re giant and about to do even more damage! On the Hot AC adds report yesterday, the singles finished in the same order, with “Liar” earning 18 adds and “Shameless” receiving 11.

Why Don’t We also managed to secure a decent 26 stations and a fifth place finish this week, as they officially impact with “What Am I” after several weeks of early action. Like Cabello’s two entries above, “What” entered the top 40 at the format last weekend. It looks poised to become the group’s highest-charting single at the format later this year; they’ve now had four top 40 songs to date.

Charting releases by Lizzo, Post Malone and Taylor Swift are among those prominent songs making up the rest of the top ten.

A huge Tuesday is ahead at the format, led by a soundtrack song from Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus and Lana Del Rey, as well as the latest singles by 5 Seconds Of Summer (which ranked at #6 this week) and Halsey.


MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (ELEVEN)
1. CAMILA CABELLO, “Liar” (Syco/Epic)
2. CAMILA CABELLO, “Shameless” (Syco/Epic)
3. POST MALONE, “Circles” (Republic)
4. TAYLOR SWIFT, “Lover” (Republic)
5. WHY DON’T WE, “What Am I” (Signature Ent./Atlantic)
6. 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Teeth” (Interscope)
7. LIZZO, “Good As Hell” (Nice Life/Atlantic)
8. ALI GATIE, “It’s You” (Warner)
9. AJ MITCHELL featuring AVA MAX, “Slow Dance” (Epic)
10-T. MILEY CYRUS, “Slide Away” (RCA)
10-T. MONSTA X featuring FRENCH MONTANA, “Who Do U Love?” (Epic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (September 3, 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: Post Malone has the cure for your post-Labor Day blues, as his latest hit circles the format and squarely leads the weekly log. Let’s add ’em up:

THE SHAPE OF POP RADIO: Ahead of his highly-anticipated album Hollywood’s Bleeding, due Friday, Post Malone lands the Most Added song at Top 40 radio this Tuesday with “Circles”, scoring a big 115 stations. “Circles” snuck into the top 40 on this past Sunday’s published update at #40, so you can expect it to make a larger move by the weekend. At the Rhythmic format, the track is in second place on the log with 15 adds in its first week.

Taylor Swift also advanced with the title track from her album Lover, which received 34 stations during the session and a second place finish. Though the track has not seen a formal impact date as of yet, it’s already at #10 on the latest Billboard Hot 100 update following the album’s robust #1 debut. As “You Need To Calm Down” begins to descend in the coming weeks, look for this single to easily make the top 40 very soon.

Charting releases by Alessia Cara, Lizzo and Normani are among those prominent songs making up the rest of the top ten.

Camila Cabello looks poised to lead next week’s adds report, with new music (two songs) from her expected on Thursday.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. POST MALONE, “Circles” (Republic)
2. TAYLOR SWIFT, “Lover” (Republic)
3. NORMANI, “Motivation” (RCA)
4. WHY DON’T WE, “What Am I” (Signature Ent./Atlantic)
5. ALESSIA CARA, “Rooting For You” (Def Jam)
6. MEGAN THEE STALLION featuring NICKI MINAJ & TY DOLLA $IGN, “Hot Girl Summer” (1501 Certified/300 Ent.)
7. LAUV featuring ANNE-MARIE, “F*ck, I’m Lonely” (AWAL/in2une)
8-T. AJ MITCHELL featuring AVA MAX, “Slow Dance” (Epic)
8-T. LIZZO, “Good As Hell” (Nice Life/Atlantic)
8-T. MONSTA X featuring FRENCH MONTANA, “Who Do U Love?” (Epic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (August 20, 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: Normani harmonizes the hit patrol with her dazzling solo single, scoring the top spot on the weekly report. Let’s add ’em up:

SEVENTY-EIGHT IS ENOUGH: Normani’s newest single “Motivation” motivates 78 stations to report an add on impact at the Top 40 format, giving it the Most Added title this week. Following chart-topping duets with Khalid and Sam Smith, she is ready to score her third #1 song outside of Fifth Harmony this fall. An adds date at additional formats has not be announced yet; it did not place in the top ten on any other adds report this Tuesday.

The only other impacting song of note is from Katy Perry, who earns a second place finish with “Small Talk”, the follow-up to her recent top ten entry “Never Really Over”. With a total of 45 stations during the session, it should reach the top 50 by Sunday, but it will likely face some obstacles heading up the chart given her ongoing weaker research issues.

Charting releases by NF, OneRepublic and Sam Smith are among those prominent songs making up the rest of the top ten.

Look for impacting singles from AJ Mitchell and Ava Max, Alessia Cara and Saweetie to bolt into the top ten next week.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. NORMANI, “Motivation” (RCA)
2. KATY PERRY, “Small Talk” (Capitol)
3. NF, “Time” (Caroline)
4. LIL NAS X, “Panini” (Columbia)
5. MONSTA X featuring FRENCH MONTANA, “Who Do U Love?” (Epic)
6. ELLIE GOULDING & JUICE WRLD, “Hate Me” (Polydor/Interscope)
7. SAM FELDT featuring RANI, “Post Malone” (Spinnin’/Warner)
8. SHAED, “Trampoline” (Photo Finish/Caroline)
9-T. ONEREPUBLIC, “Rescue Me” (Interscope)
9-T. SAM SMITH, “How Do You Sleep?” (Capitol)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (August 11, 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. When we all fall asleep, we go straight up to the top of the pop chart… well, at least if you’re a 17-year-old star with fans around the world. Let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

PRETTY FLY (FOR A BAD GUY): After patiently waiting it out in the #2 spot, Billie Eilish‘s “Bad Guy” advances from 2-1 this week on the Top 40 chart, marking her first #1 song at the format. Her hit is also #1 on the Alternative chart for a third week, giving Eilish her longest individual run at the top there. On the pop airwaves, “Bad” was only up around 130 spins in the last week, so we’ll have to wait and see if it can stick around at #1 for a second week or if something else will take over.

Three collaborations reach the top 40 this week, led by “Spicy”, up from 41-35 for Herve Pagez, Diplo and Charli XCX. The new interpretation of “Wannabe”, a #4 smash for the Spice Girls from March 1997, marks the first top 40 entry for Pagez, the fifth solo appearance for Diplo and the sixth for Charli XCX. Chris Brown and Drake score their 34th and 27th top 40 hits, respectively, as “No Guidance” rises from 45-38. It also remains at #1 on the Urban chart this week. Finally, up from 42-40, “Who Do U Love?” gets Monsta X and French Montana into the region. It’s the first top 40 song for the K-pop group and the fourth for Montana.

There’s plenty of other action in the top 50 this week, with Stephen Puth earning his first chart song in “Look Away” at #46. It was co-written by he and his brother, format chart-topper Charlie Puth. The streaming hit “Ransom” checks in at #47 for Lil Tecca, a rapper who turns 17 later this month and also scores his first entry here. With a current top five hit on the Alternative list, Dominic Fike is also new to the Top 40 chart, landing at #48 with “3 Nights”. Finally, just sneaking in at #50, is a collaboration from Armin Van Buuren and Garibay called “Phone Down”. In January 2017, a totally separate “Phone Down” peaked at #48 for Lost Kings and Emily Warren.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 28, 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. The end of July gives us lots of new tunes in the mix and a strong collaboration at the top, so let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

EYE FOR AN “I”: Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber‘s “I Don’t Care” holds at #1 on the Top 40 chart for a second week, still about 1,200 spins ahead of Billie Eilish‘s “Bad Guy” at #2. “I” also holds at #1 on the Hot AC list and lands at #14 on the AC chart. At the current time, it’s unclear whether or not the collaboration will remain at the top for a third week, or if Eilish’s big track will sneak in. However, “Bad Guy” does lead the Alternative chart on the latest update, where it advances from 2-1.

Earning his 12th top 40 release at the format, Sam Smith‘s “How Do You Sleep?” debuts at #32 on the list. His recent chart-topper with Normani, “Dancing With A Stranger”, spent two weeks at #1 in May. Following Smith, Kaskade and Meghan Trainor leap from 42-36 with “With You”, marking Kaskade’s first top 40 entry here and Trainor’s 11th. Rising from 46-38 on the list, “Panini” is the second top 40 hit for Lil Nas X and the follow-up to “Old Town Road”, which peaked at #4 last month. Lastly, moving from 42-39, “My Man” marks the first top 40 song as an artist for Delacey, who previously wrote chart hits for Halsey and Zara Larsson.

There’s even more action in the top 50 this week, with OneRepublic blasting into the #44 spot with “Rescue Me”, a current top 20 hit on the Hot AC survey. It might become the band’s first top 40 single here in 2-1/2 years. A few spots lower, NF bows at #47 with “Time”, as the performer looks to earn his fourth top 40 song to date next month. This week’s list also sees Monsta X reach the top 50 for the first time with “Who Do U Love?”, a collaboration with French Montana that begins at #49. The group’s new Japanese-language album, titled Phenomenon, is due in a few weeks.

Next week, look out for potential new chart entries from Chris Brown and Drake, as well as Illenium and Jon Bellion.
