RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (April 14, 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. The game of thrones (at least on the Top 40 chart) isn’t seeing much action this week, but that’ll change next time around. Until then, here’s what’s popping on the survey:

SIXES AND SEVENS: As noted last week, Ariana Grande‘s “7 Rings” secures a sixth week at #1 on the Top 40 chart, which now becomes her longest-running #1 single at the format ever. However, this will be its last week at the summit, as the Jonas Brothers fly from 6-2 this week with the blazing “Sucker”, which will pass Grande’s big hit in the next few days. When it reaches the top, it will become the first #1 song at any format for the group.

Speaking of these three talented brothers, their latest single “Cool” moves from 43-25 on the chart, marking their eighth top 40 song to date. It’s the highest of three new entries in the region this week, though the other two tracks are well below it. One of them jumps into the entire top 50 at #37: “Boy With Luv”, the first collaboration by K-pop sensation BTS and singer Halsey. It’s the fourth time in the top 40 for the septet and the tenth entry for the featured performer. The track easily reached #1 on iTunes upon release. Julia Michaels and Niall Horan also edge into the top 40 this week, up 41-40 with “What A Time”. It’s the fifth top 40 single for each of them, the latter artist earning his fifth solo entry (which compliments his 13 as a member of One Direction.)

Three further entries in the top 50 this week are led by newcomer Kiana Ledé, who checks in at #46 with “Ex”. You’ll find it closing in on the top ten at the Rhythmic radio format. Ciara earns her first top 50 title since 2009 with “Thinkin Bout You”, new at #48. At #49, we also have the newest solo hit for a second One Direction alum: Louis Tomlinson is back with “Two Of Us”. The tune could earn him the third top 40 solo entry of his career in the coming weeks.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (March 10, 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. We have a new song at the top and it should ring a bell… or seven. Fresh from our shopping spree, let’s check out what’s popping on the radio this Sunday:

SEVENTH HEAVEN: Earning her seventh #1 song at the Top 40 format, Ariana Grande moves from 3-1 with “7 Rings”, now in its eighth week in the top 40. It’s her second chart-topper from the album thank u, next, with the title track leading the chart back in January for one week. Follow-up single “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” is up to #13 this week and could land at the top, but it’ll be some time before it gets close to the summit. We’ll keep you updated! Meanwhile, “7” should have a lengthy run at #1; it’s the only song gaining airplay in the top five and was up over 1,000 spins versus the previous published update.

Newcomer Mabel jumps from 41-35 with her first top 40 hit, “Don’t Call Me Up”, while Billie Eilish is also in with her first top 40 single, “When The Party’s Over”, up 43-39. However, the most intriguing entry of the week is actually a re-entry: “Shallow” by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, off the soundtrack to A Star Is Born, is back in the top 40. Flying from 45-38, the tune’s boost is likely due to its recent Oscar win and new chart peak at the top of the Hot 100.

Of the four debuts in the top 50 this week, three are collaborations. One of them leads things off at #46: “I Can’t Get Enough” marks the first collaboration together for Benny Blanco, Tainy, Selena Gomez and J Balvin. After an extremely slow run up the chart since August of last year, Blanco’s song “Eastside”, with Halsey and Khalid, recently spent two weeks at the summit. Checking in a notch lower, P!nk‘s latest single “Walk Me Home” has a nice start at #47, though it’s already approaching the top ten on the Hot AC chart. From there, Julia Michaels and Niall Horan debut at #48 with “What A Time”, the radio single from Michaels’s recent EP Inner Monologue, Pt. 1. Finally, at #50, another hit collaboration credited to four acts makes the top 50: “So Close” features NOTD, Felix Jaehn, Captain Cuts and Georgia Ku. Ku is the only chart newcomer on this song; the other three acts have either ranked with their own main-credited releases or remixes for other artists.

ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2018: Part Five, 5-1

The top five is here on Adam’s Top 100 of 2018! The cream of the pop is ready for you, so enjoy all the great music ahead…

The 2018 chart year encompasses a period of 52 weekly surveys from the chart dated December 3, 2017 to the chart dated November 25, 2018. Peaks listed reflect the highest position reached by the final list of this period. For any ties in points, a song with the higher peak is listed first, and further ties are broken by the weeks at a song’s peak position and the amount of time charted in the top 40. 171 titles had at least one point qualify towards the year-end chart, a decrease from the 176 that did so in 2017.

05. JUKEBOX THE GHOST, “Everybody’s Lonely”
Album: Off To The Races
Label: Caroline
Peak: #2 for one week
Weeks: 27
Points: 737

Writers: Ben Thornewill, CJ Baran, Peter Thomas
Producers: CJ Baran, Peter Thomas

Three years ago, this band galloped to the top of my year-end survey with “Postcard”, which had a seven-week run at #1 on my chart. Their song at #5 for the year didn’t quite match that, but its #2 peak and top 40 stay of over half a year are still pretty impressive. The single also became the band’s first song to chart at Alternative radio, entering the top 20, even though its parent album failed to rank on the Billboard 200 list. (The group’s self-titled album reached the lower rungs of the chart four years ago.) With “Fred Astaire” already leaving my survey, narrowly missing my top 20, the trio’s latest era is likely done for singles. However, you never know when a Ghost could haunt my top 40…

04. BACKSTREET BOYS, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”
Album: DNA
Label: RCA
Peak: #1 for three weeks
Weeks: 27
Points: 749

Writers: Jamie Hartman, Stephen Wrabel, Stuart Crichton
Producers: Jamie Hartman, Stuart Crichton

After “Drowning” reached the top spot on my chart during the fall of 2001, it would be struggle for the Backstreet Boys for over a decade to reclaim the summit. On two occasions, the band topped out at #10 with 2005’s “Incomplete” and 2007’s “Inconsolable”, but failed to enter the region with a handful of other entries. So, when the group re-signed with a major label and put out this tune, the nostalgia was real. It’s still hard to believe that it took nearly 17 years for the Boys to return to #1 here, but a chart-topper is a chart-topper, no matter what year it is. I’m also looking forward to their upcoming release DNA, which also includes “Chances”, a current top ten song on my list. I heart them!

03. NIALL HORAN, “On The Loose”
Album: Flicker
Label: Capitol
Peak: #1 for three weeks
Weeks: 30
Points: 803

Writers: John Ryan, Julian Bunetta, Niall Horan
Producer: Julian Bunetta

2018 was another awesome year for the one-time One Direction member, as he became the first performer to get five #1 songs on my chart from one album. Pretty impressive, right? This was the fourth of five, which had a solid three-week run atop my list. “On” was the last song from Flicker to be serviced to radio in the U.S., entering the top 20 on the Hot AC list and just missing the region at the Top 40 format. It’ll be hard for his next album to match that streak, but there’s no doubt in my mind that the music will be good. Of course, the performer’s hit “Slow Hands” was crowned my #1 track of 2017, spending seven weeks at the top of my list. I’ve gotta hand it to him: he’s one talented guy.

02. GEORGE EZRA, “Shotgun”
Album: Staying At Tamara’s
Label: Columbia
Peak: #1 for six weeks
Weeks: 25+
Points: 846

Writers: Fred Gibson, George Barnett, Joel Pott
Producers: Cam Blackwood, FRED

As of the end of the chart year in November, “Shotgun” was still well into the top 20 on my weekly chart, giving Ezra’s song the potential to land on 2019’s list as well. Until then, let’s focus on this tune’s massive run for the year, spending a hefty six weeks at the top in August and September. It was the perfect summer single, and an international audience loved it too, as it became Ezra’s first song to hit #1 in Australia and the United Kingdom. In the States, “Shotgun” became a sizable top ten hit on the Triple A survey earlier this year, with some moderate results at Hot AC radio and a Top 40 crossover planned for January. If you haven’t taken a ride with him yet, I would highly recommend it.

01. GEORGE EZRA, “Paradise”
Album: Staying At Tamara’s
Label: Columbia
Peak: #1 for three weeks
Weeks: 32
Points: 866

Writer: George Barnett
Producer: Cam Blackwood

Yes, you’re seeing double, but in a good way. George Ezra has both my #1 and #2 songs of 2018, with “Paradise” leading the way. On any of my year-end charts, it’s not uncommon to see an act with two songs in the top ten, but holding down the top two spots? That’s rare. As a #1 single for three weeks on my personal chart with a run of almost eight months in the top 40, I was sure for most of the year that “Paradise” (or “On The Loose”, back at #3) would end up as my top title for 2018. So, I’m certainly very happy with the final result. Would you believe that Ezra’s breakout hit “Budapest” never made my chart? It bubbled under during the spring and summer of 2014. That’s quite a jump for the man who now has the top two songs on my year-end list four years later. As far as 2019 goes, “Hold My Girl” is now climbing up my list and headed towards the top 20, while “Shotgun” (as mentioned above) descends after its #1 adventure during the summer. If another song from his album becomes a single down the line, who knows what’ll happen? Until then, I’ll have an extended stay in “Paradise” this winter.

A big thank you for checking out my Top 100 of 2018! Here’s to more awesome chart adventures in 2019. Happy holidays!

ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2018: Part Three, 30-11

As 2018 draws to a close, it’s time for the annual Top 100 of the year! According to my tabulations, these titles ranked as the most successful on my personal chart. 2018 may have been a doozy on the political front, but in the musical world, plenty of great singles and performers made their mark on my listening habits this year. “Love” was a constant presence in the top 40 for much of the last twelve months, from “Love So Soft” to “Love Someone” to “Say Love” and many others. We also found a “New” perspective from big titles like “New Light” and “New Rules”. “High Hopes”, “High Horse” and “Hell Or High Water” kept us in the heights of a diverse year for sounds, while “You”, “Me” and everybody in-between got their equal share of pop pronouns. Phew… that was a lot, and there’s much more to come! Who will spread the word and have my #1 song at the end of the countdown?

Well, grab your headphones and let’s get to counting. Check out the next 20 songs on my Top 100 of 2018…

Chart Notes:

  • “Be Alright” leads my personal chart once again, giving Dean Lewis‘s hit a second week at #1. It’s still building at the Hot AC and Top 40 radio formats, reaching the top 20 at the former. Last week’s top debut by Sigrid, “Sucker Punch”, makes a big move from 38-27, as it becomes this week’s fastest-moving record in the countdown. Four new tunes land on the chart this week, led by a pair of notable collaborations from Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper and Jason Mraz featuring Meghan Trainor. The former, a cut off the chart-topping soundtrack to the movie A Star Is Born, is “Shallow”, landing at #36. The latter, the second radio single from Mraz’s current album Know., is “More Than Friends”, coming in at #37. “More” is the follow-up to “Have It All”, which got as high at #4 earlier this year. Just below those titles, Noah Kahan‘s “False Confidence”, his third top 40 hit, starts at #39, while O.A.R. returns with “Miss You All The Time”, their ninth chart entry, entering at #40. “Miss” is the group’s first single to make the top 40 since the fall of 2016.
