ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 1, 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: with a little magic, this week’s session ended in a tie. Let’s add ’em up:

GOOD 4 THREE DOZEN: In a tie atop the adds report at the format, the enduring “Good 4 U” from superstar Olivia Rodrigo scored 36 more adds this week, the same amount registered by K-pop group Tomorrow x Together with their track “Magic”. The former is well into the top 25 at the format, while the latter is likely to crack the top 50 in the next week or two.

Just behind those two songs, the impacting “Build A Bitch” from chart newcomer and TikTok star Bella Poarch secured a third place finish with 29 adds this week. The song entered the top 50 on last week’s Top 40 chart update at #46.

Charting singles from Mooski, NF and Polo G returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 23, 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. For your butter-flavored bounce up the pop radio chart, here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

LIFE’S A PEACH: Justin Bieber scores a second week at #1 on the Top 40 chart with Daniel Caesar and GIVĒON-assisted “Peaches”. The collaboration also remains atop the chart at the Rhythmic format for a second week.

Five new singles reach the top 40 this week, with the latest single from BTS leading the way with a high debut at #27. “Butter” is their eighth top 40 hit at the format, six of which were credited for their full run and the seventh coming last year when “Savage Love” hit the top spot for Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo in a remixed form. With a likely #1 album coming in Sour next week, Olivia Rodrigo leaps into the top 40 at #36 with “Good 4 U”, her third chart hit from the set. Newcomers Mimi Webb and Sara Kays lift into their top 40 with their first hits to date, respectively: the former’s “Good Without” is up from 44-38, while the latter’s “Remember That Night?” rises from 41-39. Finally, up 45-40 this week, NF returns with his fifth top 40 hit at the format in “Just Like You”.

In the top 50, we have another three entries: at #42, Majid Jordan swims onto the pop list with “Waves Of Blue”. At #45, it’s Marshmello and the Jonas Brothers with “Leave Before You Love Me”, which impacts at both the Hot AC and Top 40 formats this week. Finally, at #49 on the list, Cheat Codes and Tinashe are in with “Lean On Me”, which is unrelated to the song of the same title that became a major hit for Bill Withers in 1972 and Club Nouveau in 1987.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 16, 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. For all the important juicy fruit facts and chart champs, here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

POP GOES THE PEACHES: Justin Bieber climbs a notch to the top of the pop radio chart with Daniel Caesar and GIVĒON-assisted “Peaches”. This is his second #1 song of 2021: he previously led the list for a week in February with the Benny Blanco-assisted “Lonely”.

The international dance hit “Friday” moves up from 42-38 on the chart for four artists that are all scoring their first top 40 entry here: Riton and Nightcrawlers, both DJ acts, as well as featured artists and social media personalities Mufasa and Hypeman. A notch lower, there is one other newcomer checking into the top 40 this week: Brazilian star Anitta, who blasts onto the list at #39 with “Girl From Rio”.

Newcomer Mimi Webb leads a pack of top 50 entries with “Good Without”, which comes in at #44. It recently entered the top 20 nationally in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Just behind her, NF lands at #45 with “Just Like You”, the second top 50 entry from the mixtape Clouds at the format. (The title track spent a week at #50 in late March.) Coldplay is hoping to earn their first top 40 single since 2017 with “Higher Power”, which bows at #47. Finally, at #49, Major Lazer is back on the chart with the Sia and Labrinth-assisted “Titans”.

Their reactive tune is currently breezing through the top 30 at the format.

Fresh titles from Mimi Webb and NF performed well enough to reach the top five on the report, as the former’s “Good Without” earned 22 stations during the session and a third place finish, while the latter’s “Just Like You” picked up 21 stations and took fourth.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (August 27, 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: before we take a hit holiday, a number of new titles pounce on the top five slots, as AJ Mitchell and Ava Max quickly lead the way with a slow song for the format. Let’s add ’em up:

FRIENDS IN “SLOW” PLACES: Our weekly dance for Top 40 adds ends with Mitchell and Max’s release “Slow Dance” scoring tens from all the judges for their flawless routine… and 48 stations on impact certainly doesn’t hurt either. Mitchell’s charted twice at the format with two songs that have achieved minor success: 2018’s “Girls” (#38) and “All My Friends” (#21) from a few months back. Look for the collaboration to make the top 50 at the end of the week, marking the third song to enter the region for both acts. Mitchell’s new EP, which bears the same name as its single, was released last Friday.

Though it doesn’t officially impact here until the second week of September, Why Don’t We‘s “What Am I” has a good start at the format with 35 stations this Tuesday. It’s enough to squeeze into a third place finish, though we’ll see if it can reach the top spot on the log in the next couple of weeks. Following behind them, Khalid and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie‘s new version of “Right Back” earns 34 stations and the fourth position on the list, while Alessia Cara‘s “Rooting For You” slides into fifth place with 33 adds. A soundtrack cut from Lauv and Anne-Marie also gets some decent action from the panel: “F*ck I’m Lonely”, which is included on the companion album to the new season of 13 Reasons Why, is in sixth place with 21 new stations.

Charting releases by NF, SHAED and Twenty One Pilots are among those prominent songs making up the rest of the top ten.

Have a relaxing and restful Labor Day weekend!

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. AJ MITCHELL featuring AVA MAX, “Slow Dance” (Epic)
2. NORMANI, “Motivation” (RCA)
3. WHY DON’T WE, “What Am I” (Signature Ent./Atlantic)
4. KHALID featuring A BOOGIE WIT DA HOODIE, “Right Back” (RCA)
5. ALESSIA CARA, “Rooting For You” (Def Jam)
6. LAUV featuring ANNE-MARIE, “F*ck, I’m Lonely” (AWAL/in2une)
7. SHAED, “Trampoline” (Photo Finish/Caroline)
8. NF, “Time” (Caroline)
9-T. SAWEETIE, “My Type” (ICY/Artistry/Warner)

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)

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: Ariana Grande and Social House are decorating the house here at the top for a second week, while two new titles are knocking at the door in the top five. Let’s add ’em up:

ONE CROWDED HOUSE: Despite some decent competition, Grande and Social House’s “Boyfriend” picks up 34 more adds for its second week on the survey, landing ahead of Jax Jones and Bebe Rexha‘s “Harder” in second place with a total of 24 stations during its impact week. Meanwhile, Twenty One Pilots finish in third place, only one station behind Jones and Rexha, with “The Hype”, which sees a solid increase in adds from last week’s early action. While “Boyfriend” is currently racing through the top 20 at the format, look for “Harder” and “The Hype” to make their top 50 debuts in the next couple of weeks.

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

Look for Katy Perry‘s “Small Talk” to talk its way onto more than a few Top 40 playlists next week; it had nine early adds today.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (August 6, 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: Ariana Grande and Social House soar onto the list and into the house of hits with their reactive new collaboration. Let’s add ’em up:

A FRIENDLY START: Earning a robust 146 stations on impact, Grande and Social House’s “Boyfriend” is easily the top entry on this week’s Top 40 log. The track, which reached the top 40 on last Sunday’s published update, does not appear on a current studio album by either act. This marks Social House’s first song to reach the region at the format and their first time in the top spot on the weekly adds report. “Boyfriend” is also the week’s Most Added record on the Rhythmic radio log, scoring another 35 stations there.

The only other new single of note in the top ten is NCT 127‘s “Highway To Heaven”, which drives home a sixth place finish with 19 stations on impact. It’s the K-pop act’s first song to impact at the format. Given the tepid response, the track may experience a slow ride into the top 40, though it’s likely to pick up some additional support throughout the rest of the month.

Charting releases by Blanco Brown, Lil Nas X, Lil Tecca and SHAED are among those prominent songs making up the rest of the top ten.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. ARIANA GRANDE & SOCIAL HOUSE, “Boyfriend” (Republic)
2. SAM SMITH, “How Do You Sleep?” (Capitol)
3. NF, “Time” (Caroline)
4. LIL NAS X, “Panini” (Columbia)
5. SHAED, “Trampoline” (Photo Finish/Caroline)
6. NCT 127, “Highway To Heaven” (Caroline)
7. ELLIE GOULDING & JUICE WRLD, “Hate Me” (Polydor/Interscope)
8. BLANCO BROWN, “The Git Up” (BBR/BMG-Warner)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (August 4, 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. If you “Care” about all the big pop songs for the first week of August, you’re in the right place! Let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

“I” IN THE SKY: Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber‘s huge hit “I Don’t Care” continues its run at the summit on the Top 40 list for its third week, eclipsing the 19,000 spin mark in the process (though it doesn’t set a new record.) The tune also remains strong at #1 on the Hot AC chart. With Billie Eilish‘s “Bad Guy” at just over 300 spins away now, her current #2 hit will likely replace “I” in the next few days and become official by next weekend, unless Sheeran and Bieber’s collaboration has a better hold than expected.

Christian rapper NF leaps from 47-34 with the song that becomes his fourth top 40 entry at the format, “Time”. The simple title has also appeared on the chart in the past for groups like The Alan Parsons Project and Hootie & The Blowfish, whose respective singles made the top ten in 1981 and 1996. One notch below him, “Boyfriend” debuts on the entire chart at #35 for Ariana Grande and Social House. The collaboration becomes Grande’s 22nd top 40 entry on the pop chart and the duo’s first, which comes a year after they first entered the top 50 here with the Lil Yachty-assisted “Magic In The Hamptons”. It stalled at #43. Our third and final top 40 entry this week is OneRepublic‘s “Rescue Me”, a top 20 song on the Hot AC chart that moves from 44-38 here. It’s the act’s 13th top 40 single at this format since 2007.

A handful of collaborations enter the top 50 this week, led by Chris Brown and Drake‘s “No Guidance” at #45. The song leads the Rhythmic and Urban charts on the current update. Sam Feldt and RANI, both appearing on the pop chart for the first time, dance onto the survey with “Post Malone” at #46. (Malone ranks at #11 this week with the Young Thug-assisted “Goodbyes”.) Landing at #48 is “Higher Love”, a single combining the talents of Kygo and the late Whitney Houston. Originally recorded in 1990, this cut marks the first appearance for Houston on the pop chart since 2002’s “Whatchulookinat”, which reached #46 that September. 2009 also saw her track “Million Dollar Bill” receive a little pop airplay, though it failed to reach the top 50. Finally, at #49, Illenium and Jon Bellion enter the region with “Good Things Fall Apart”, which is approaching the top ten at Alternative radio.
