RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 4, 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. These new tracks have the freedom and independence to chart at the format, so let’s see what’s popping this week:

“MORE” TO CELEBRATE: From her recent #2 album Planet Her, Doja Cat has the new #1 song on the Top 40 radio chart with “Kiss Me More”, a collaboration with SZA. This is the second #1 tune at the format for the former and the first for the latter. Next time around, the two women will face a bit of competition from Lil Nas X and Olivia Rodrigo for the top spot on the list. We’ll see what happens on Sunday.

Speaking of Doja Cat, she has this week’s highest top 40 entry with “You Right”, a collaboration with The Weeknd. Advancing from 41-24, it marks their seventh and 18th top 40 singles, respectively. Lower down, Dua Lipa has a strong debut at #37 with “Love Again”, becoming her 14th top 40 hit to date. This is the fourth entry to chart from the original release of her 2020 album Future Nostalgia, though there have been additional singles that can be found on an expanded reissue of the set from earlier this year. Lastly, Tomorrow x Together lifts from 42-40 with “Magic”, as the group claims their first top 40 hit.

Christian pop and rap artist Nic D lands at #43 with “Fine Apple”, a recent viral song on the video app TikTok. It’s his first appearance on the Top 40 chart. Meanwhile, Anne-Marie and Niall Horan come in at #45 with “Our Song”, which is currently in the top 30 at Hot AC radio.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 22, 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: Tate McRae and Khalid work it and easily take the top spot this week. Let’s add ’em up:

“WORKING” ON IT: The new collaboration from Tate McRae and Khalid is called “Working”, and it’s really working, scoring 124 adds in its first week at the Top 40 format. It debuted at #43 on Sunday’s chart update, so expect this one to soar by this coming weekend’s list.

Two other impacting singles reached the top five: in second place, “Our Song” picked up 18 adds for Anne-Marie and Niall Horan. At the Hot AC format, the collaboration is rising in the top 30.

Adam’s Top 100 of 2020: The Complete List

2020 was quite a year, one that will be remembered for some time to come: the pandemic, politics, protests and much more. While our lives will be much different headed into the new year, we can only hope that 2021 will bring some sort of normalcy and positive change.

Perhaps one of the few upsides of 2020 was the amount of great music that came out: despite the challenges of the last ten months, the music community remained creative and I’d like to think that some of that is reflected in my 2020 year-end chart. “Love” was in the air once again, with the top 100 containing 15 titles that used the word or the word family, including “I Love Me”, “Love Me Land”, “Stupid Love”, “Used To Love” and others. From “Me” to “You”, my chart saw some action from “Fall On Me” and “Rain On Me” to “Adore You” and “Someone To You” and even “Me & You Together Song”. Hits from Dua Lipa and Lady Gaga dominated the year, but there’s lots more to discover from the rankings of my list, including winners from radio, sync and yes, a few TikTok tunes as well.

So, after crunching all the numbers up, here are the top 100 songs based on my weekly personal chart:

The 2020 chart year encompasses a period of 53 weekly surveys from the chart dated December 1, 2019 to the chart dated November 29, 2020. Peaks listed for each track reflect the highest position reached by the final list of this period. For any ties in points, an entry with the highest 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. 166 titles had at least one point qualify towards the year-end chart, a small decrease from the 167 that did so in 2019. A total of 13 titles reached the #1 spot for at least one week this year, down significantly from the 20 that did so in 2019.

01. DUA LIPA, “Break My Heart” (1,025 points)
Album: Future Nostalgia
Label: Warner
Peak: #1 for eight weeks

02. LADY GAGA & ARIANA GRANDE, “Rain On Me” (967 points)

This week’s new entries come from Zara Larsson, who lands at #37 with “Love Me Land”, and Conan Gray, who bows at #40 with “Heather”. Last September, Larsson scored three weeks at #1 with “All The Time”, her only chart-topper to date. Earlier this year, Gray’s first chart entry, titled “Maniac”, spent two weeks at #15.

Chart Notes:

  • On this Mother’s Day weekend, Dua Lipa‘s “Break My Heart” scores a third week at #1 on my personal chart. This week’s top 40 debuts come in at #36 and #40 for Jamie Scott and Michael Franti & Spearhead, respectively. “Friendly Fire” marks Scott’s third solo tune outside of the duo Graffiti6 to make my chart. With four #1 singles to date here, split evenly between the duo and his solo career, we’ll see if this release can add to his total. “I Got You” is the first song to make my personal chart for Franti and his band since 2013’s “I’m Alive (Life Sounds Like)”, which got to #28. Their biggest single to date, 2009’s “Say Hey (I Love You)”, went as high as #12 for two weeks.
