RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (February 7, 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. Even though this week’s update is looking a little bit lonelier, it’s time for a recap of what’s popping at the format this week:

“LONELY” AT THE TOP: After a close call for much of the week, the Justin Bieber and Benny Blanco collaboration “Lonely” rises from 4-1 on the Top 40 chart, while Ariana Grande‘s “34+35” lands in the runner-up spot, moving from #5 last week. This is the ninth #1 track at the format for Bieber and the second for Blanco as an artist. Meanwhile, Grande falls from 1-3 with “Positions”, which just held the top spot for the past seven weeks, while Bieber slides from 2-7 with the Chance The Rapper-assisted “Holy”.

Sabrina Carpenter scores her fifth top 40 single on the Top 40 list with “Skin”, leaping from 43-34 this week. All four of her prior chart entries climbed into the top 30, but stopped short of a top 20 peak. Further down, 52-year-old DJ/producer Tiësto is up from 41-36 with “The Business”, becoming his fourth top 40 entry to date. Also breaking into the region at age 46, Nelly returns with “Lil Bit”, lifting from 42-39 this week. The single reunites him with the duo Florida Georgia Line, whose remix of “Cruise” went to #7 in 2013. Individually, it marks their 23rd and fifth top 40 hits to date, respectively.

Labelmates SZA and Doja Cat enter the top 50 this week, with “Good Days” and “Streets” landing at #46 and #47, respectively.

Look for the track to fly on both charts during the next couple of months.

Ava Max landed in second place with 32 stations for “My Head & My Heart”, which is still scheduled to impact here a month from now. It tied with Travis Scott and HVME‘s “Goosebumps”, a remix of a remix of Scott’s 2017 hit at the Rhythmic format.

Charting singles from CJ, Justin Bieber and The Kid LAROI returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

Singer Indiana Massara hopes to squeeze onto the report next week with her current single.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (January 10, 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. If you’re craving a lil bit of pop radio action, here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

A CLEAR POSITION: Easily earning a fourth week at #1, Ariana Grande leads the Top 40 chart once again with “Positions”. At the Rhythmic and Hot AC formats, the song is still gaining and appears at #11 and #14, respectively.

Spain’s HVME has this week’s only new song in the top 40 with “Goosebumps”, a flip of a Travis Scott song, which leaps from 42-38. It’s his first top 40 hit.

In the top 50, three new entries are led by Australian performer The Kid LAROI, who debuts at #43 with “Without You”. The song is the follow-up to “So Done”, which moves up to #27 on the list. Landing at #44, Nelly and Florida Georgia Line are in with “Lil Bit”. Of course, the duo worked with Nelly on the remix of their crossover hit “Cruise”, which spent four nonconsecutive weeks at #7 in June and July 2013. The only other entry of note is Fousheé‘s “Deep End”, a recent viral tune that comes in at #50.

A Gaye Old Time: The Battle Of Two “Healing” Hits

Movin' to some Marvin.

Movin’ to some Marvin.

The music of the legendary Motown singer Marvin Gaye has been appreciated by many fans and many more musicians over the years. It’s also gotten a few of those acts into some notable legal issues, but there’s no need to blur the lines here: Gaye, his music and his message remain a key part of the songs we enjoy in 2015. So, I guess it was inevitable that he’s being covered and sampled again even after some people might have been (at least temporarily) scared away from utilizing music of his catalog. In fact, we’re coming upon two different singles, both fighting for pop radio glory, that sample his 1982 smash “Sexual Healing”. Yet, this leads us to a few questions, though the answers won’t reveal themselves for some time. Will both tracks be able to coexist in the top 40 at one time? Will they cancel each other out? Will Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor‘s recent smash “Marvin Gaye”, which is now descending the chart, play any role in how these two chart runs play out? Let’s take a look at what may happen.

Already rising up into the top 20 at Rhythmic radio and heading upward is “The Fix”, a new release from Nelly that also features Jeremih. The latest tune from the St. Louis rapper has also picked up a small group of stations on the CHR radio panel, where it finds itself just below the top 50 and making some gains, albeit much smaller ones. “Fix” marks the debut single for a record label called RECORDS, which is a new partnership between SONGS Publishing and RED Music in the Sony family. Of course, this does mean that the performer is no longer with Universal, whom he was signed to for over a decade. Nearing his 41st birthday in just a few weeks, the ageism of pop radio is likely to take its toll on this track, at least to an extent, but consistent sales in the top 100 on iTunes and almost 7.5 million streams on Spotify are proving that this has some strength in the marketplace. Give it some time; it may just be a surprise sleeper song for the fall.

Of course, that sleeper status will, no doubt, be affected by the other single searching for open slots on radio playlists. This one is heading for adds at CHR radio on October 20, but it will potentially start gaining some spins earlier than that. It’s “Try Me”, sung by Jason Derulo and featuring Jennifer Lopez, along DJ/producer Matoma, who you may know from his tropical house flip of a Notorious B.I.G./Ja Rule/Ralph Tresvant song, titled as “Old Thing Back” for the new release. That single was a big hit in Norway and Sweden earlier this year. Derulo’s third single from the album Everything Is 4 is his followup to “Cheyenne”, a top 20 single that recently crashed hard due to a lack of sales momentum (and a number of late Q3 singles by top-tier acts debuting at the same time.) We’ll see if that stalling has done any damage to the era, or if “Try” can carry Derulo and company back to the top again. It’s now at 45 million streams on Spotify.

This is an interesting situation, to say the least, and it’s one where anything can truly happen given the track records of both main acts involved. We’ll keep you updated on how these new releases do at radio as the year goes on!
