RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 18, 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. Gather your crew for what’s popping at the format this week:

REMEMBER THE “NAME”: Earning a second week at #1 on the Top 40 chart, Lil Nas X‘s “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” lands just 34 spins ahead of the song at #2: “Good 4 U”, a future #1 at the format for Olivia Rodrigo. Meanwhile, “Montero” advances from 3-1 on the Rhythmic chart.

Post Malone leads a pack of five debuts in the top 40, as “Motley Crew” advances from 43-29 this week. It’s his 15th top 40 song to date. Up from 46-35, Billie Eilish picks up her eighth top 40 single with “NDA”. At three letters in length, it becomes one of the shortest titles to land on the chart, though we’ve had even shorter ones historically, including “Go”, “I”, “If” and “No”. Maroon 5 secures their 30th top 40 entry at the format with another relatively short title, “Lost”, lifting from 45-37. Kane Brown and Blackbear are next at #38 with “Memory”, which debuts at that position. It’s their third and eighth top 40 hits, respectively, though Brown has earned quite a few more on the Country chart. A fifth and final title moves from 41-40 to just sneak into the region, as TikTok star Nic D scores his first top 40 hit with “Fine Apple”. The song now joins a handful of other titles containing apples or pineapples to enter the chart, including “Apples, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie”, “Little Green Apples”, “One Bad Apple” and “Pineapple Princess”.

Currently in the top 20 on both the Rhythmic and Urban charts, “Thot Sh*t” twerks onto the pop radio list for Megan Thee Stallion at #49. One spot lower, we have another significant hit from the two radio lists: “Late At Night”, debuting at #50 for Roddy Ricch.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (July 6, 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: Dua Lipa gets a whole lot of love again for her latest radio single. Let’s add ’em up:

“LOVE” FOR LIPA: After starting off with 49 early adds and a third place finish last Tuesday, Dua Lipa took over the top spot on the adds report this week with 56 more stations for “Love Again”, the new single from the Future Nostalgia album. The song entered the chart at #37 on the most recent update last weekend. It’s also picking up some minor airplay at the Hot AC and Rhythmic radio formats, though it hasn’t impacted at either of them yet.

Watch out for new and emerging singles from Trinidad Cardona and Maroon 5: the former and his “Dinero” tied for third place with 20 stations, thanks in part to its viral success on TikTok, while the latter picked up another 15 stations for their “Lost”, landing in fifth place.

Charting singles from Nic D, Tai Verdes and Tones And I 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 (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.
