ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (May 25, 2021)

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: BTS is really cooking with gas with their bold and buttery new release. Let’s add ’em up:

SHOULD’VE KNOWN BUTTER: K-pop septet and worldwide phenomenon BTS had a huge first week at the Top 40 format, earning the commitments of entire panel (180 stations) on impact with “Butter”. It is the first song since 2019 to achieve this goal. Elsewhere, the big hit scored 52 and 25 adds at the Hot AC (second place) and Rhythmic (third place) radio formats, respectively.

Entering in the runner-up position with a still fairly substantial 115 adds this week, Marshmello and the Jonas Brothers impacted at the format with “Leave Before You Love Me”. It led yesterday’s report at the Hot AC format with 56 stations, just sneaking past BTS.

Finally, after earning 40 early adds last week, Olivia Rodrigo grabbed another 86 stations for “Good 4 U”, ranking in third place. The song recently became her third top 40 hit from the Sour album, which is likely to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart later this month.

Charting singles from Anitta and GIVĒON returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next week for another action-packed adds session.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 2, 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. This week’s pop chart is feeling more powerful than before, so here’s what’s feeling the force at the format this week:

AS “TEARS” GO BY: “Save Your Tears” is safe for a second week at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart, as The Weeknd‘s hit continues to climb in airplay at the format. The song also holds at #2 on the Hot AC chart, just behind labelmate Taylor Swift‘s “Willow”. As for next week, the pop chart is looking peachy, but we can wait on that one…

In the top 40, Regard, Troye Sivan and Tate McRae bounce from 41-32 with “You”, earning the three artists their third, sixth and second top 40 hits, respectively. After debuting on Thursday, Billie Eilish powers through the top 40 and into the #34 spot with “Your Power”. The song becomes her seventh top 40 entry and third from her upcoming album Happier Than Ever. Lifting from 43-39 on the list, AJ Mitchell makes it into the region with “Stop”, which goes ahead to become his fourth top 40 hit. Finally, TikTok stars Nessa Barrett and Jxdn enter the top 40 with the collaboration “La Di Die”, a recent top 20 single on the Alternative chart, which jumps from 48-40. This is the first top 40 song on the pop airwaves for both performers.

Newcomer Sara Kays leads another handful of releases making their first entry into the top 50 at the format, with “Remember That Night?” coming in at #46. Her song has already reached the top 15 at the Triple A format. Mooski lands at #48 with “Track Star”, which is now at #2 at the Urban format following a viral moment earlier this year. Finally, Veronika is in at #49 with “Homesick”.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (April 25, 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. This week’s survey is all about saving, so for the top records to the rescue, here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

HAPPY “TEARS”: With a little help from a newly-released remix featuring Ariana Grande, “Save Your Tears” by The Weeknd climbs a notch to #1 on the Top 40 radio chart. It’s his second chart-topper at the format from the album After Hours and his fourth overall.

Demi Lovato and Grande take the top new entry in the top 40 with “Met Him Last Night”, climbing from 44-38. It’s their 19th and 26th top 40 hits, respectively. Meanwhile, after two near-misses in the last five years, Sofia Carson finally scores her first top 40 hit on the pop chart with “Fool’s Gold”, advancing from 46-40.

Just missing the top 40 at #41, “You” crashes onto the chart, as Regard, Troye Sivan and Tate McRae look to maintain their quick ascent through the spring. Jackson Wang is new to the survey with “LMLY” (short for “Leave Me Loving You”), which is off to a lovely start at #47 this week. One more collaboration reaches the top 50: “La Di Die”, performed by TikTok stars Nessa Barrett and Jxdn, at #48. Finally, the debut song at #50 this week recently topped the Alternative chart: “Follow You”, the latest from Imagine Dragons.
