RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 28, 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 some heat waves and hits for a cool end of November, it’s time to see what’s popping at the format this week:

A DOZEN REASONS TO STAY: “Stay” extends its stay at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for a twelfth week, as the enduring track from The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber continues to perform very well at the format. As noted last weekend, “Stay” now ties the plays-per-week era record for the most weeks at #1, first accomplished by Donna Lewis in November 1996 with “I Love You Always Forever”. Will the two men establish another piece of chart history next week, or will Adele‘s “Easy On Me” (up 3-2) ease up a notch and take the top spot? Stay tuned…

Due to several weeks of strong airplay following a resurgence on TikTok and streaming services, “Heat Waves” re-enters the list way up at #8 for Glass Animals. The song previously peaked at #14 earlier this year.

In other Adele news, she debuts at #38 with the second single from her new album 30. “Oh My God” is her 11th top 40 entry to date.

Newcomer Benson Boone debuts at #46 with “Ghost Town”, while Taylor Swift slides into the top 50 with her re-recorded version of “All Too Well” at #50. The latter single recently started at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, boosted by an extended rendition that runs just over ten minutes in length.
