ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (August 22, 2017)

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: a big battle between six impacting tracks occurred, but in the end, Justin Bieber and BloodPop, as well as Halsey, emerged victorious with their hot singles. So, grab some “Friends” and show “Love” to this week’s Add Lib mania, why don’t you?

THAT’S WHAT “FRIENDS” IS FOR: Keep smiling, all you Beliebers, because Justin Bieber and BloodPop keep shining on this week’s adds report. “Friends” starts with 137 stations in its first frame, taking the Most Added title by far. The single marks the artist debut of the latter performer, a writer and/or producer three chart hits since 2015, one for Bieber and two for Lady Gaga. It remains to be seen when or if Bieber fatigue will develop at the format, given that he’s ranked with three collaborations since April, but the strong start for “Friends” is definitely a positive sign that the hits are going to keep on coming. No word on a new album for either artist as of yet, but that could soon change, especially as we head toward the start of the fourth quarter.

LOOKING FOR A NEW “LOVE”: You don’t have to look very far to find Halsey‘s “Bad At Love” in a budding relationship with the Top 40 panel this week, picking up 57 new stations (the second Most Added single) during its official impact. How romantic! It comes shortly after “Now Or Never” reached #3 at the format. “Bad” is the second radio release from Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart earlier this year, and will officially become her fifth top 40 hit in the coming days.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (August 15, 2017)

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 question questionable titles from P!nk and Sabrina Carpenter! Got numbers? We do. Let’s calculate and celebrate these top radio records:

“WHAT” GOES UP: Since the spring of 2000, pop superstar P!nk has reached the top 40 with 27 songs, and her 27th and latest hit sounds like a winner. “What About Us” is the Most Added title at the format this week, scoring 121 stations on impact. 18 of her 27 hits, or two-thirds, have peaked in the top ten, with nine of those reaching #1. That’s pretty outstanding. With her upcoming set due October 13, titled Beautiful Trauma, I’m sure several of those totals will be headed upward. P!nk’s last single to chart here, the collaboration “Waterfall” with Stargate and Sia, spent a week at #33 (4/2/17 MB) and quickly fell apart. (That definitely won’t be the case with “What” now!) Check back to see how her new single does in the coming weeks.

IF I WERE A CARPENTER: After reaching a #26 peak this past spring with “Thumbs”, 18-year-old Sabrina Carpenter keeps the one word title streak alive with “Why”, scoring the second Most Added record at Top 40 radio with 43 stations on impact. Even though her title is just three letters in length, we’ve had a couple of top 40 hits that are just one character: “7” (#2, 2/5-12/93 R&R) by Prince and the New Power Generation and “i” (#30, 11/9/14 MB) by Kendrick Lamar. However, all these songs are not short on quality, and that’s what matters! Can Carpenter hammer out a hit for the fall? Stay tuned.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. P!NK, “What About Us” (RCA)
2. SABRINA CARPENTER, “Why” (Hollywood)
3. SELENA GOMEZ featuring GUCCI MANE,
“Fetish” (Interscope)
4
. LOUIS TOMLINSON featuring BEBE REXHA & DIGITAL FARM ANIMALS, “Back To You” (Syco/Epic)
5. HARRY STYLES,
“Two Ghosts” (Columbia)
6. PORTUGAL. THE MAN,
“Feel It Still” (Atlantic)
7. WHY DON’T WE, “Something Different” (Atlantic)
8. FRENCH MONTANA featuring SWAE LEE,
“Unforgettable” (Eardrum/Bad Boy/Interscope-Epic)
9. DEMI LOVATO,
“Sorry Not Sorry” (Safehouse/Island/Republic/Hollywood)
10. HALSEY,
“Bad At Love” (Astralwerks/Capitol)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (August 8, 2017)

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: Harry Styles raises a toast to “Ghosts”, AJR prove that they are fanatics of the dramatic and much more. Forget about the popcorn and popsicles, munch down on these pop stats tonight:

“TWO” BECOMES ONE: After Louis Tomlinson led the Top 40 adds report for the past two weeks, it’s time for another One Direction member to take control at the top. Harry Styles is looking for his second solo top 40 single with “Two Ghosts”, and at pop stations this week, it spooks up 36 adds from the panel. “Two” is the follow-up to “Sign Of The Times”, which scored a massive 127 adds on impact in April, peaking at #12 (4/30, 5/7 and 5/21/17) on the chart. Of course, Styles’s self-titled album entered at #1 on the Billboard 200 album chart earlier this year. Though much of the initial hype of this era has died down, “Two” can still take a nice run up the chart. However, even with the ghost talk, I wouldn’t get into the Halloween spirit too early… it’s only August 8. (It’s definitely a good time for candy, regardless of the date.)

FREAKS OF THE “WEAK”: Since 2014, the trio of brothers known as AJR have reached the Top 40 chart with two top 30 hits: “I’m Ready” (#25, 7/27/14) and “Weak” (#27, 6/4 and 6/18/17). Now, the Met siblings get some brotherly love from the stations of the pop panel, receiving 24 adds on impact, good for a third place (tie) finish. It’s the second radio single from their newest set The Click, which didn’t exactly click with the buying public, reaching #61 on the Billboard 200. Will Adam, Jack and Ryan finally break into the top 20? Will a brick wall await them below the region once more? Ooh, time will tell, kids. Watch this space!

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. HARRY STYLES, “Two Ghosts” (Columbia)
2. PORTUGAL. THE MAN, “Feel It Still” (Atlantic)
3. AJR,
“Drama” (AJR Prod./RED)
4. SELENA GOMEZ featuring GUCCI MANE,
“Fetish” (Interscope)
5. LOUIS TOMLINSON featuring BEBE REXHA & DIGITAL FARM ANIMALS,
“Back To You” (Syco/Epic)
6. DEMI LOVATO,

7. FRENCH MONTANA featuring SWAE LEE,
“Unforgettable” (Eardrum/Bad Boy/Interscope-Epic)
8. ZEDD & LIAM PAYNE,
“Get Low” (Interscope)
9. KHALID,
“Location” (RCA)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (August 1, 2017)

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: Portugal. The Man feels its way up the leaderboard on a slow week, but it’s certainly doing well, along with the current hits from Louis Tomlinson, Selena Gomez and more. A new month means that new reports are on the way, and here’s the latest one:

MAN ABOUT TOWN: It’s been six big weeks at #1 on the Alternative chart for Portugal. The Man‘s “Feel It Still”, and with its Hot AC and Top 40 airplay growing quickly, it looks like it’ll be a crossover smash through the fall. This Tuesday, it feels super cool for these five men, as they pull in 18 new stations on impact, good for the sixth Most Added spot. Their most recent album debuted in the top 40 on the Billboard 200, and it’s called Woodstock. Though the quintet’s now had five top 40 singles to date at their core format since 2011, this is the first to chart outside of the rock world and internationally. (Yes, it’s in the top 100 songs on Spotify in Portugal. It might need a few more men, and women, to play it.)

THE BOY IS YOURS: Fall Out Boy‘s “Champion” (#8) and Rita Ora‘s “Your Song” (#9) are making their first appearances on the weekly column, having appeared just outside the top ten here in recent weeks. The latter entry debuted at #45 this past Sunday on the published chart, while the former entry missed the top 50 by just three spins. (Don’t worry, it’s already moving up.) Ora last appeared in the top 40 in November 2014, when she was the featured artist on a #1 hit for Iggy Azalea, “Black Widow”. As for the band, they’ve been more consistent on the U.S. charts, having last touched the format in February 2016 with “Irresistible”. That hit featured Demi Lovato, and it peaked at #21.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (ELEVEN)

2. SELENA GOMEZ featuring GUCCI MANE, “Fetish” (Interscope)

4. ZEDD & LIAM PAYNE,
