RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (October 27, 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. Halloween and hit albums are always full of treats (and a few tricks), so get yourself ready for some spooky stats. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

THAT SPECIAL “SOMEONE”: Lewis Capaldi holds at #1 for the second week on the Top 40 chart with “Someone You Loved” in its 21st week in the top 40. The global smash is steady at #2 and #6 on the Hot AC and AC radio lists, respectively, and could lead the Billboard Hot 100 when the newest update is revealed tomorrow. It’s going to be a close one. Meanwhile, you can expect it to hit three weeks at the top of this survey next week, as its nearest competition is too far away to bother it.

Ranking in the top 40 with her 17th hit as a solo artist, Selena Gomez blasts in at #29 with “Lose You To Love Me”, the lead single from her forthcoming studio album. It also reaches the top 40 on this week’s Hot AC survey. After reaching the top 40 last week as a featured artist on French Montana‘s “Writing On The Wall”, Post Malone gains his 13th top 40 entry with the Ozzy Osbourne and Travis Scott-assisted “Take What You Want”, jumping from 46-39. It’s Osbourne’s third top 40 song and first since the spring of 1992. Scott is now up to six top 40 hits at the format. Finally, climbing from 47-40, Tones And I checks in with her very first top 40 single, “Dance Monkey”. The song remains at #1 in several countries and is just below the top 20 on the Alternative radio chart.

Further down the list, BTS and Lauv break in at #46 with “Make It Right”, marking their first charting collaboration here. The new trio Public steps in at #48 with “Make You Mine”, their first tune to enter the top 50, while Kesha and Big Freedia shake into the region at #50 with “Raising Hell”, a song that was released this past Thursday. It, and Gomez’s new track above, head for adds at the format on Tuesday.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (October 20, 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. Love is in the air (or lost love, if you will) on the pop chart, as a very popular Scottish singer takes the top spot. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

“SOMEONE” NEW AT THE TOP: Moving from 3-1, chart newcomer Lewis Capaldi leads this week’s Top 40 chart with the hit “Someone You Loved”, which also reached #1 in Ireland, Scotland and the United Kingdom during the spring. It also comes in at #2 on this week’s Hot AC chart, topping that survey for two weeks last month.

Earning her 16th top 40 hit thus far, Bebe Rexha climbs from 42-39 with “You Can’t Stop The Girl”. The movie from which it came from, Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil, entered at #1 on the new box office report for the weekend. However, its first-week total was well below the initial predictions for it. A notch below her, French Montana, Post Malone, Cardi B and Rvssian also break into the top 40 with a 45-40 move for “Writing On The Wall”, giving the four artists their fifth, 12th, ninth and first top 40 hits, respectively.

Malone also debuts as a lead artist with “Take What You Want” at #46, which also includes Ozzy Osbourne and Travis Scott. It’s the latest single from Malone’s recent #1 set Hollywood’s Bleeding and becomes Osbourne’s first track to reach the pop radio survey since the spring of 1992. Newcomer Tones And I swings onto the chart at #47 with “Dance Monkey”, a global smash that’s climbed to #1 in more than a dozen countries to date. Major Lazer‘s “Que Calor” also debuts at #49, a collaboration that includes J Balvin and El Alfa. Finally, Blackbear‘s “Hot Girl Bummer” settles in at #50, one of three songs impacting at the format on Tuesday.
