RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (March 24, 2019)

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. Time to ring in the new survey, so let’s head up the list and check out what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

THE SHAPE OF “RINGS”: Ariana Grande‘s international hit “7 Rings” is safely #1 again at the Top 40 format for a third week, with the nearest competitor still about 3,900 spins away. It remains at #6 on the Rhythmic chart and rises to #15 at Hot AC radio. It should remain at the summit for a fourth week, given its sizable boost of just over 500 spins, as her follow-up single “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” holds outside the top ten at #12. It’s up nearly 1,100 spins versus last week.

After debuting at #45 on last week’s list, Lauv and Troye Sivan‘s “I’m So Tired…” climbs to #37 on this week’s survey, which gives the former his third top 40 single at the format and the latter his fifth. The tune is the highest of three debuts in the top 40, followed by Jeremy Zucker‘s “comethru” (up 42-39) and Jake Miller‘s “Wait For You” (41-40). Zucker’s hit is his first to reach the region, though Miller’s entry is his second and first in 4-1/2 years. That song, “First Flight Home”, got as high as #29 in October 2014.

The top 50 is full of new collaborations landing on the countdown, with “Bones” from Galantis featuring OneRepublic starting at #47 to lead things off. Bryce Vine‘s latest tune, the YG-assisted “La La Land”, follows at #48, which scored 39 stations on Tuesday to become the Most Added title at the format. Finally, the recent Rhythmic and Urban radio chart-topper “Going Bad” enters at #49 for Meek Mill featuring Drake, the latest single from Mill’s 2018 album Championships. Despite a lengthy history at both formats over the last few years, this is his first song to chart at the pop format.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 5, 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: Brothers, can you spare a hit? The return of the Jonas Brothers has the pop world shook, as plenty of other new records reach the lower rungs of the top ten. Let’s add ’em up:

BROTHERS IN CHARMS: Welcome back, Jonas Brothers! The group’s first single since 2013, “Sucker”, received a massive 153 adds on impact, easily securing the top spot on this week’s adds report at the format. This is trio’s biggest one-week total to date. It should be a quick ride up the chart for the guys, whose release stormed into the top 30 after just two days of airplay. Their highest-charting tune to date on the Top 40 chart, “Burnin’ Up”, spent two weeks at #12 in August 2008. Will their seventh top 40 entry be the one that finally enters the top ten? Stay tuned, suckers!

With his follow-up to “Girls”, which peaked at #38 a few months back, AJ Mitchell lands in fifth place this week with a total of 23 stations for “All My Friends”. Following just behind him with one fewer station, Galantis and OneRepublic are in sixth place, as “Bones” shows some strength with the panel. Look for both songs to reach the top 50 in the next week or two.

Next week, look for the Benny Blanco collaboration “I Can’t Get Enough”, which features Tainy, Selena Gomez and J Balvin, to rule the report. (It just missed the top ten this week.) Also on the schedule: cool new songs from Andy Grammer, James Bay featuring Julia Michaels and Lauv with Troye Sivan.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (ELEVEN)
1. JONAS BROTHERS, “Sucker” (Republic)
2. THE CHAINSMOKERS featuring 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Who Do You Love” (Disruptor/Columbia)
3. BEBE REXHA, “Last Hurrah” (Warner Bros.)
4. LIL PEEP & ILOVEMAKONNEN featuring FALL OUT BOY, “I’ve Been Waiting” (Columbia)
5. AJ MITCHELL, “All My Friends” (Epic)
6. GALANTIS featuring ONEREPUBLIC, “Bones” (Big Beat/EMG)
7. BILLIE EILISH, “When The Party’s Over” (Darkroom/Interscope)
8-T. PANIC! AT THE DISCO, “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” (Fueled By Ramen/EMG)

AJ MITCHELL – “All My Friends” (Epic)
Album: TBA (2019)
Past T40 History: Mitchell’s one prior top 40 single, “Girls”, got as high as #38 in December. We’ll see if this new one goes higher.

GALANTIS featuring ONEREPUBLIC – “Bones” (Big Beat/EMG)
Album: TBA (2019)
Past T40 History: Though OneRepublic has plenty of hits to their credit, the Swedish duo has just two minor top 50 songs to date.

JONAS BROTHERS – “Sucker” (Republic)
Album: TBA (2019)
Past T40 History: The sibling trio recently earned their first top 40 entry since the summer of 2013. How high will this release go?

NOTD, FELIX JAEHN & CAPTAIN CUTS featuring GEORGIA KU – “So Close” (Island/Republic)
Album: TBA (2019)
Past T40 History: The four-way collaboration already went to #1 on the Dance list, as it ranks in several other territories overseas.

P!NK – “Walk Me Home” (RCA)
Album: Hurts 2B Human (2019)
Past T40 History: With nine #1 songs and nearly 20 top ten hits since her first in 2000, this superstar’s newest cut should do well.

Next week: emerging titles from Benny Blanco, James Bay and Lauv are among the songs on the schedule for next Tuesday. It could be a fierce battle between all three collaborations, but who will end up on top? Stay tuned.

ADAM’S TOP 100 OF 2018: Part Two, 60-31

As 2018 draws 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. 2018 may have been a doozy on the political front, but in the musical world, plenty of great singles and performers made their mark on my listening habits this year. “Love” was a constant presence in the top 40 for much of the last twelve months, from “Love So Soft” to “Love Someone” to “Say Love” and many others. We also found a “New” perspective from big titles like “New Light” and “New Rules”. “High Hopes”, “High Horse” and “Hell Or High Water” kept us in the heights of a diverse year for sounds, while “You”, “Me” and everybody in-between got their equal share of pop pronouns. Phew… that was a lot, and there’s much more to come! Who will spread the word and have my #1 song at the end of the countdown?

Well, grab your headphones and let’s get to counting. Check out the next 30 songs on my Top 100 of 2018…

The 2018 chart year encompasses a period of 52 weekly surveys from the chart dated December 3, 2017 to the chart dated November 25, 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. 171 titles had at least one point qualify towards the year-end chart, a decrease from the 176 that did so in 2017.
