RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 12, 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. Put your mask on and the radio up, because here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

PUT YOUR “LIGHTS” ON: The Weeknd‘s “Blinding Lights” picks up a seventh nonconsecutive week at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart, down a little over 300 spins from last week. Look for Trevor Daniel‘s “Falling”, which remains at #2 again, to attempt a run at the top spot during the coming week.

Three singles enter the top 40 on this week’s chart, led by the first top 40 entry for Jack Harlow, which vaults from 45-34. “What’s Poppin” also moves from 2-1 on the Rhythmic chart, becoming Harlow’s first #1 tune at the format, and currently ranks at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. Following him, Kygo and OneRepublic lift from 44-35 with “Lose Somebody”. This is the seventh top 40 entry for Kygo on the list and the 14th for OneRepublic, who have been charting since 2007. Format newcomers Topic and A7S also land in the region with their recent Dance radio hit “Breaking Me”, which climbs from 47-40 this week.

Flying into the top 50, Ava Max‘s “Kings & Queens” has a royal landing at #43, as she gets closer to her third top 40 song to date. It starts four spots ahead of StaySolidRocky‘s viral hit “Party Girl”, which checks in at #47. Additionally, AJ Mitchell is new at #48 with “Burn”. Mitchell and Max previously collaborated on his song “Slow Dance”, which peaked at #26 in December 2019.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 5, 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. The temperature is hot and the songs of the summer are sizzling, so here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

ANOTHER JULY WEEKND: With a small drop in airplay vs. last week, The Weeknd‘s big hit “Blinding Lights” is launching all kinds of fireworks at the Top 40 format, as it easily earns a sixth nonconsecutive week at the top. The multi-format smash also leads the Hot AC chart for an eighth week. Will it extend its run at both formats by next Sunday? Stay tuned.

Two big collaborations debut in the top 40 on this week’s survey: the higher of the two, Trevor Daniel and Selena Gomez‘s “Past Life”, bolts onto the entire chart way up at #29. It’s the second top 40 entry for Daniel, who’s still on the rise from 4-2 with “Falling”, and the 19th solo chart hit for Gomez. Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo‘s “Savage Love” also has an impressive start at #38, marking their first and 21st top 40 singles at the format, respectively. Jawsh 685’s original instrumental tune went viral on the video platform TikTok earlier this year.

More collaborations are also making themselves known in the top 50 this week: Kygo and OneRepublic‘s “Lose Somebody”, rising through the top 30 on the Hot AC chart, wins a Top 40 debut at #44, as Regard and Raye‘s “Secrets” has a quieter start at #49.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 16, 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: it was a much slower session at the format, with several big collaborations leading the way at the top of the log. Let’s add ’em up:

HOPING FOR ADDS: The adds action on this week’s report was much lower compared to last week’s session that combined two weeks worth of data, but in the end, the new Charlie Puth-assisted version of Gabby Barrett‘s “I Hope” snuck into the top spot, earning 27 new commitments. That sum was just three adds of the song finishing in second place, “Rockstar”, the current #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 from DaBaby featuring Roddy Ricch.

Charting singles from CynLil Mosey and Tones And I returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap, featuring a pair of collaborations from Kygo & OneRepublic (tied for seventh place this week) and Topic & A7S.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. GABBY BARRETT featuring CHARLIE PUTH, “I Hope” (Warner)
2. DABABY featuring RODDY RICCH, “Rockstar” (SCMG/Interscope)
3. DOJA CAT featuring GUCCI MANE, “Like That” (Kemosabe/RCA)
4. LIL MOSEY, “Blueberry Faygo” (Interscope)
5. KELSEA BALLERINI & HALSEY, “The Other Girl” (Black River Ent./Capitol-The Orchard)

ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2019: #90-81

As 2019 and the decade draw to a close, it’s time for the annual Top 100 of the year! According to my tabulations, these titles ranked as the most successful on my personal chart. The year was full of love, found and lost, from “Higher Love” and “Lover” to “Somebody You Loved” and more. Time was the essence, whether it was “All The Time” or “The Last Time”, and the light guided the way towards the upper half of the list, including “Light On” and “Lights Up”.

So, come along with “ME!” as I count down the hits, won’t you? Let’s get some numbers rolling…

The 2019 chart year encompasses a period of 52 weekly surveys from the chart dated December 2, 2018 to the chart dated November 24, 2018. Peaks listed reflect the highest position reached by the final list of this period. For any ties in points, a song with the higher 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. 167 titles had at least one point qualify towards the year-end chart, a decrease from the 171 that did so in 2018.

90. NINA NESBITT, “Loyal To Me”
Album: The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change
Label: Cooking Vinyl/RED
Peak: #2 (2018)
2018 YE: #41

89. INGRID MICHAELSON, “Young And In Love”
Album: Stranger Songs
Label: Cabin 24/RED
Peak: #17

88. SCOTT HELMAN, “Everything Sucks”
Album: (single only)
Label: Warner
Peak: #7+

87. PASSENGER, “Survivors”
Album: Runaway
Label: Black Crow/Nettwerk
Peak: #18

86. ONEREPUBLIC, “Rescue Me”
Album: (single only)
Label: Mosley/Interscope
Peak: #16

85. ARIANA GRANDE, MILEY CYRUS & LANA DEL REY, “Don’t Call Me Angel”
Album: Charlie’s Angels (Soundtrack)
Label: Republic
Peak: #13

84. MAREN MORRIS, “Girl”
Album: Girl
Label: Columbia Nashville
Peak: #19

83. KATY PERRY, “Small Talk”
Album: (single only)
Label: Capitol
Peak: #13

82. WALK OFF THE EARTH, “I’ll Be There”

Peak: #13

81. LADY GAGA, “Always Remember Us This Way”

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (August 20, 2019)

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: Normani harmonizes the hit patrol with her dazzling solo single, scoring the top spot on the weekly report. Let’s add ’em up:

SEVENTY-EIGHT IS ENOUGH: Normani’s newest single “Motivation” motivates 78 stations to report an add on impact at the Top 40 format, giving it the Most Added title this week. Following chart-topping duets with Khalid and Sam Smith, she is ready to score her third #1 song outside of Fifth Harmony this fall. An adds date at additional formats has not be announced yet; it did not place in the top ten on any other adds report this Tuesday.

The only other impacting song of note is from Katy Perry, who earns a second place finish with “Small Talk”, the follow-up to her recent top ten entry “Never Really Over”. With a total of 45 stations during the session, it should reach the top 50 by Sunday, but it will likely face some obstacles heading up the chart given her ongoing weaker research issues.

Charting releases by NF, OneRepublic and Sam Smith are among those prominent songs making up the rest of the top ten.

Look for impacting singles from AJ Mitchell and Ava Max, Alessia Cara and Saweetie to bolt into the top ten next week.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. NORMANI, “Motivation” (RCA)
2. KATY PERRY, “Small Talk” (Capitol)
3. NF, “Time” (Caroline)
4. LIL NAS X, “Panini” (Columbia)
5. MONSTA X featuring FRENCH MONTANA, “Who Do U Love?” (Epic)
6. ELLIE GOULDING & JUICE WRLD, “Hate Me” (Polydor/Interscope)
7. SAM FELDT featuring RANI, “Post Malone” (Spinnin’/Warner)
8. SHAED, “Trampoline” (Photo Finish/Caroline)
9-T. ONEREPUBLIC, “Rescue Me” (Interscope)
9-T. SAM SMITH, “How Do You Sleep?” (Capitol)
