RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 14, 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. Writing about music and radio charts at the moment is a bit strange, but for petition and donation resources in the fight against racial inequality in our country, please go to this website and do what you can. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

BACK INTO THE LIGHT: Returning to the summit on the Top 40 radio chart for a fourth nonconsecutive week, The Weeknd‘s “Blinding Lights” is enduring on the pop airwaves, while simultaneously topping the list at the Hot AC format. The tune is now in its 25th week in the top 40. The most recent single from his After Hours album, “In Your Eyes”, stalled out a few weeks back at #19.

There’s some crazy top 40 action on the chart this week, including six new entries in the region. Gabby Barrett‘s “I Hope” makes a huge leap from 42-32 to become her first top 40 single at the format. It previously topped the Country radio chart in April. From the soundtrack to upcoming film Promising Young Woman, Cyn earns her first top 40 hit with “Drinks”, up from 41-35. After narrowly missing the top 40 with two releases in 2016, JoJo has her first top 40 song in eight years with “Man”, climbing from 43-37. It’s her sixth title to enter the region since 2004. The Surf Mesa and Emilee collaboration “ILY (I Love You Baby)” leaps from 45-38, with the two performers each earning their first top 40 entries. Sam Fischer jumps from 44-39 with “This City”, as he lands his first top 40 entry here as well. It now ranks in the top 20 on the Hot AC chart. Last but not least, Ashe climbs from 46-40 on the survey with “Moral Of The Story”, which is currently in the top 15 on the Alternative chart.

The top 50 is just as active on the chart with another six entries in that region, led by Tones And I‘s “Ur So F**king Cool” at #43. It follows the global hit “Dance Monkey”, which spent six nonconsecutive weeks at #6 on the Top 40 survey this year. Newcomer Pink Sweat$ isn’t sweating his entry at #45 with “17”, followed by the TikTok-fueled “Banana” by Conkarah and Shaggy, which begins to ripen at #47. Olivia O’Brien‘s “Josslyn” starts at #48, as she makes her first appearance on the chart since the end of 2016. That year also happens to be the same one when Melanie Martinez last charted at the format; her “Play Date” arrives at #49. Sia‘s new single “Together” ends this Sunday’s wild chart adventure; the cut from her upcoming film Music sneaks in at #50.
