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.
