ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (October 19, 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: the easiest winner of the year is, of course, Adele. Let’s add ’em up:

“EASY” DOES IT: As expected, it was a huge week for Adele at the Top 40 format with “Easy On Me”. It’s now the eighth title in the plays-per-week era to clear the entire panel in one week, scoring all 179 adds on impact. In fact, across the United States and Canada, the track got 528 adds in total when combining all formats. The lead single from 30 debuted at #22 on the Top 40 chart last weekend.

In second place, Anitta picked up 36 adds for the Saweetie-assisted “Faking Love”. The collaboration also performed well at the Rhythmic format, landing in the same runner-up position with another 33 stations there. The single marks the follow-up to “Girl From Rio”, which got as high as #22 the pop chart for Anitta this past July.

Rounding out the top three, Imagine Dragons finished in third place with “Follow You”. It impacted and earned 25 new stations, bringing its historic total to 42. The song spent five nonconsecutive weeks at #1 at the Alternative format between April and July.

Charting singles from Coldplay, Jesy Nelson and The Anxiety returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

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

LET’S “STAY” TOGETHER: Their enduring radio smash is titled “Stay” and it seems like The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber are doing it, as they and their collaboration earn a fourth week at #1 on the Top 40 chart. The cut is down about 300 spins, but it remains above 19,000 total again this week and nearly 1,900 ahead of its nearest competitor.

Rising from 50-31 to score their 14th top 40 hit at the format, the Jonas Brothers are off to a very fast start with “Who’s In Your Head”. Lil Nas X is also seeing some major support for “That’s What I Want”, which debuts at #33 this week. It’s his sixth top 40 song to date and third from his recent album Montero, which just debuted at #2 on the latest Billboard 200 update.

Two solo women have this week’s entries in the top 50: Kacey Musgraves lands at #45 with “Justified”, while Nessa Barrett starts at #46 with “I Hope Ur Miserable Until Ur Dead”. Musgraves is looking for her first top 40 entry at the format, while Barrett is going for her second.

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”.
