RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (February 23, 2020)

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. A popular performer who’s known for some “Rules” is ruling the list, as several newer acts check in with debuts. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

“START” YOUR ENGINES: Dua Lipa earns her second #1 song on the Top 40 radio chart with “Don’t Start Now”, moving from 3-1 on the latest update. Of course, her first was the multi-format smash “New Rules”, which spent five weeks at the summit in early 2018. There are five different formats where the song currently appears in the top 30, including its former #1 rank on the Dance list. It also rises to #8 on the Hot AC chart, as it continues to make large gains week-to-week.

The multinational collaboration from DJ Snake, J Balvin and Tyga travels into the top 40 this week after an extended period just outside the region. “Loco Contigo” climbs from 41-37, giving DJ Snake his ninth top 40 single at the format, while J Balvin and Tyga each earn their seventh. Maren Morris moves from 43-39 with her recent #1 tune on the Country radio chart, “The Bones”. This is her second release to enter the region on the pop survey. Noah Cyrus also rises from 42-40 with “July”. It’s her fifth top 40 song.

Two additional songs make the top 50 on this week’s chart, led by Ali Gatie‘s “What If I Told You That I Love You” at #43. Last fall, “It’s You” briefly appeared in the region, peaking at #48. Further down, Monsta X starts at #49 with “You Can’t Hold My Heart”. A collaboration from French Montana, “Who Do U Love?”, got them to #23 on the chart in September and October of last year.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (February 9, 2020)

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. Alas, we won’t be thanking the Academy for any awards tonight, but we can award some top pop hits with this analysis. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

TO THE MAROON AND BACK: Maroon 5 holds at #1 for the second week on the Top 40 chart with “Memories”. The big hit is now up to its 11th week at the top on the Hot AC chart and also remains strong at the AC format, where it holds at #6 this week. The battle for next week’s #1 tune should be an interesting one, with both “Memories” and Post Malone‘s recent chart-topper “Circles” (at #2) in the hunt for an extra frame, as Dua Lipa‘s “Don’t Start Now” (at #4) continues its ascent through the top five.

The big midweek release from Khalid and Disclosure, “Know Your Worth”, blasts onto the survey at #33. The tune becomes their tenth and third top 40 entries, respectively. As “Juicy” continues to drip down the chart, Doja Cat rises from 41-34 with her second top 40 single, “Say So”. Justin Bieber also breaks into top 40 with the Quavo-assisted “Intentions”, another of the songs from his forthcoming album Changes, at #39. It’s the 28th top 40 hit for Bieber and the seventh solo entry for the Migos member. The track is the follow-up to “Yummy”, which has stalled out after a very short run and tumbles from 12-16.

All three top 50 debuts on this week’s update are performed by women: Meghan Trainor with the Nicki Minaj-assisted “Nice To Meet Ya”, Noah Cyrus with “July” and Demi Lovato with “Anyone”. They start at #44, #45 and #48, respectively. Trainor’s track also enters the top 50 (#43) on this week’s Hot AC chart, where Cyrus’s song is up to #38. (Lovato’s cut is just below the top 50.)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (February 4, 2020)

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: Khalid and Selena Gomez know their worth at Top 40 radio, but which performed ended up in that rare and coveted top position on the report? Let’s add ’em up:

“KNOW” YOUR ADDS: After sneaking in a midday premiere and wide support from the panel, “Know Your Worth” by Khalid x Disclosure is this week’s Most Added song at the Top 40 format, ending the day with a total of 60 stations. The track only earned a handful of adds at the Rhythmic format on the latest list, though it did not impact there today. Expect “Know” to easily chart this weekend on the regular published update.

Of course, this means Selena Gomez‘s “Rare” ended the day in second place, but only by one add: 59 more stations came in for it this week. The title cut from her latest album is already flying up the Top 40 chart, making its top 40 debut this past weekend.

The latest single from Meghan Trainor, the Nicki Minaj-assisted “Nice To Meet Ya”, also managed to place in the top five titles this week. It earned 40 stations on impact, earning it a fourth place rank. The collaboration is featured on her album Treat Myself, which was released last Friday. It also placed in fourth on the Hot AC report yesterday, picking up 14 stations there.

Charting songs from Doja Cat, Taylor Swift and The Weeknd are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

Next week, emerging songs from Ali Gatie, DaBaby and Madison Beer all aim to be da Most Added song of the week. Who will take the crown? Find out next Tuesday, baby.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (ELEVEN)
1. KHALID x DISCLOSURE, “Know Your Worth” (RCA)
2. SELENA GOMEZ, “Rare” (Interscope)
3. LIZZO, “Cuz I Love You” (Atlantic)
4. MEGHAN TRAINOR featuring NICKI MINAJ, “Nice To Meet Ya” (Epic)
5. TAYLOR SWIFT, “The Man” (Republic)
6. DOJA CAT, “Say So” (Kemosabe/RCA)
7. THE WEEKND, “Blinding Lights” (XO/Republic)
8. NOAH CYRUS, “July” (RECORDS/Columbia)
9. CHELSEA CUTLER, “Sad Tonight” (Republic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (January 28, 2020)

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: just cuz we love Lizzo and Taylor Swift, the Top 40 panel has rewarded their latest singles with first and second place finishes on this week’s report. Who landed where? Let’s add ’em up:

CUZ THEY’RE MOST ADDED: After a very fierce battle for much of the day, Grammy nominee Swift’s “The Man” is just ahead of winner Lizzo’s “Cuz I Love You” on the Top 40 adds report, earning 87 and 80 stations on impact, respectively. Swift’s track was in second place on yesterday’s report at Hot AC radio. Lizzo’s track tied for first place on the new report at Rhythmic radio. They’re both likely to fly into the top 40 by the weekend, “Cuz” from its #49 entry last Sunday and “Man” from just outside the top 50.

Two more impacting releases made the top five today: Doja Cat‘s “Say So”, earning 33 stations and a third place finish, and Noah Cyrus‘s “July”, earning 28 stations and a fifth place finish. The former title is the follow-up to “Juicy”, which reached the top 40 in late December and registered a new peak of #33 last Sunday. The latter song, which is available in its original form and an updated version with Leon Bridges, has appeared in the top ten on the adds report at Hot AC radio for the past two weeks. The two tracks should find their way into the top 50 at the format by the weekend, likely due to the recent lowered spin threshold to chart.

Charting songs from Roddy Ricch and the Jonas Brothers are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

Next week, Selena Gomez‘s “Rare” (tied for third place) should have another huge week at the format for its official impact date.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. TAYLOR SWIFT, “The Man” (Republic)
2. LIZZO, “Cuz I Love You” (Atlantic)
3-T. DOJA CAT, “Say So” (Kemosabe/RCA)
3-T. SELENA GOMEZ, “Rare” (Interscope)
5. NOAH CYRUS, “July” (RECORDS/Columbia)
6. RODDY RICCH, “The Box” (Atlantic)
7. CHELSEA CUTLER, “Sad Tonight” (Republic)
8-T. HALSEY, “You Should Be Sad” (Capitol)
8-T. JONAS BROTHERS, “What A Man Gotta Do” (Republic)
10. LEWIS CAPALDI, “Before You Go” (Capitol)

The former is the Noah Cyrus and Leon Bridges collaboration “July”, in at #39, and the latter is Old Dominion‘s “One Man Band”, bowing at #40.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 17, 2018)

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. Hope you enjoyed a bit of Father’s Day fun! Here’s the daddy of all Top 40 reports (well, not really), our radio recap of parental pop and other hot bops:

THE POST WITH THE MOST: It’s a second week at #1 for Post Malone and the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted “Psycho”, which is up a little over 200 spins from last week to cross the 16,000 spin mark. It moves from 40-37 on this week’s Hot AC chart. Malone’s new single off his Beerbongs & Bentleys set, “Better Now”, rises from 34-27 in its second week in the top 40, which means the performer might be back at #1 sooner than you think! (“Better” goes for adds at the Hot AC format next Monday.) He’s also a featured artist on a song that impacts at the Top 40 format this coming Tuesday: “Jackie Chan”, a song by Tiësto & Dzeko that also features Preme. (The original version by Preme and Malone appears on the former’s album, Light Of Day, which was released in early May.) Is there enough room for all this Malone madness? Will he suffer from overexposure? Am I only capable of asking endless questions? Uh… I think there will be some interesting action for all three records as June and July go on, so make sure you’re watching the charts!

DRIVE MY CARA: One of the only chart debuts of note this week blasts in at #37, which comes from Alessia Cara and “Growing Pains”. It’s the first single from her forthcoming sophomore album, due sometime later this year. “Growing” gives the performer her seventh top 40 song at the format, four of which have gone to #1, and that’s a pretty great run so far. Will it become her fifth? Seems like it’s too early to tell, but I’ll keep you posted. Meanwhile, the lone top 50 entry on this week’s chart is a collaboration from Noah Cyrus and MAX, “Team”, just sneaking in at #50. The acoustic ballad also enters at #47 on the Hot AC survey. Neither performer’s looking at an album release in the near future: Cyrus’s long-delayed NC-17 album, which was announced in January 2017, has never materialized, and MAX’s duo Party Pupils just released a new single earlier this month.
