Chart Notes:

  • Singer Kacey Musgraves holds onto the top spot for a second week with “Rainbow”, her first #1 on my personal chart. However, much of the action is smaller this time around, with the Biggest Mover climbing just five notches from last week: “Don’t Give Up On Me”, a new soundtrack cut from Five Feet Apart by Andy Grammer, takes the title with a move from 38-33. One debut lands in the top 40, another soundtrack song off the wildly popular set from A Star Is Born. Lady Gaga lands at #39 with “Always Remember Us This Way”. While “Shallow”, her duet with co-star Bradley Cooper, has a second life at several radio formats, this reactive cut has also earned unsolicited airplay in several big markets.

Chart Notes:

  • After narrowly missing the top spot last year with “High Horse”, which had a four-week run at #2, Kacey Musgraves easily secures a #1 song this time around with a short six-week sprint to the summit for “Rainbow”. Both this cut and “High” are from her Grammy-winning set Golden Hour, with the former continuing to see increased airplay at a handful of radio formats following her performance on the recent award show. A total of four debuts land on this week’s chart update, led by Louis Tomlinson‘s “Two Of Us” at #37. “Two” marks Tomlinson’s third solo song outside of One Direction to make my survey. The soundtrack cut “Don’t Give Up On Me”, featured in Five Feet Apart, starts at #38 for Andy Grammer. Further entries from Noah Kahan (“Mess”) at #39 and George Ezra (“Pretty Shining People”) at #40 round out the list; “Mess” recently impacted at the Triple A radio format, while “Pretty” spiked in the U.K. last week after its music video debuted.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 12, 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: Marshmello gets toasty with his latest single featuring CHVRCHES, as several other competitors race into the top five. What s’more can I say? Let’s add ’em up:

NOW “HERE” THIS: He’s soft and gooey and has plenty of big singles too. Marshmello is back with “Here With Me”, his current collaboration with the trio CHVRCHES, which you’ll find here at the summit on this Tuesday’s report with 83 adds on impact. That total should easily give the featured act their highest-charting single at the format, having just entered the top 50 for a few weeks in January with the Alternative crossover hit “Miracle”. (Other charting entries by the act at that format have been serviced to the pop airwaves, such as “Bury It” and “The Mother We Share”, but have missed entering the survey.) Of course, Marshmello is coming off a multi-format #1 song with the Bastille-assisted “Happier”, which is just about to fall out of the top ten here.

Lauv and Troye Sivan are also looking very good with their first collaboration together, “I’m So Tired…”, which started in second place with 50 stations. Lauv has two top 40 songs to date, while Sivan has four: both performers were in the top 40 earlier this year with their own individual collaborations that peaked at #30 and #33, respectively. This one should (hopefully) do a little better.

Next week, look out for impacting titles from Bryce Vine, CNCO and Twenty One Pilots, all of which have solid early support.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. MARSHMELLO featuring CHVRCHES, “Here With Me” (Joytime Collective/Glassnote-Republic)
2. LAUV & TROYE SIVAN, “I’m So Tired…” (Capitol-in2une/AWAL)
3. B. BLANCO, TAINY, S. GOMEZ & J BALVIN, “I Can’t Get Enough” (NEON15/Friends Keep Secrets/Interscope)
4. JONAS BROTHERS, “Sucker” (Republic)
5. MABEL, “Don’t Call Me Up” (Capitol)
6. LIL PEEP & ILOVEMAKONNEN featuring FALL OUT BOY, “I’ve Been Waiting” (Columbia)
7. BEBE REXHA, “Last Hurrah” (Warner Bros.)
8. AJ MITCHELL, “All My Friends” (Epic)
9. ALLY BROOKE featuring TYGA, “Low Key” (Latium/Atlantic)
10. PANIC! AT THE DISCO, “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” (Fueled By Ramen/EMG)

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)
8-T. ZEDD & KATY PERRY, “365” (Interscope-Capitol)
10-T. KHALID, “Talk” (RCA)
10-T. P!NK, “Walk Me Home” (RCA)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (March 3, 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. Are you a sucker for a new pack of pop hits? Well, if you are, let’s check out what’s popping on the radio this Sunday:

THE EAST THEY CAN DO: As expected, Benny Blanco, Halsey and Khalid remain at #1 on the Top 40 list for a second week with “Eastside”. This will likely be the collaboration’s last week at the summit, with the sizzling “7 Rings” by Ariana Grande (up 6-3) expected to continue to surge towards the top spot. No other title is currently gaining in the top five. Appropriately, the hit will be her seventh chart-topper at the format, whenever it reaches the top. The performer’s “Thank U, Next”, her most recent #1 here, slips a notch to #4, while “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” makes another solid move from 20-16.

The comeback release for the Jonas Brothers, “Sucker”, becomes their seventh top 40 song at the format with its debut at #30. At some radio stations on the panel, the single was played hourly throughout the day on Friday. The trio’s last top 40 single here, “First Time”, spent three non-consecutive weeks at #36 in July and August 2013. Scoring her 14th top 40 hit, Bebe Rexha soars from 42-33 with “Last Hurrah”, followed by the collaboration from the Drax Project and Hailee Steinfeld, “Woke Up Late”, moving from 45-39. It’s the first top 40 entry for the New Zealand band and the seventh for actress and singer Steinfeld. The fourth and final new song in this section of the chart comes from Panic! At The Disco, flying from 50-40 with their fifth top 40 single, “Hey Look Ma, I Made It”. Of course, this follows “High Hopes”, which recently spent six big weeks at the top.

In the top 50, newcomer Mabel leads things off at #41 with her track “Don’t Call Me Up”, which has already achieved top five peaks in countries like Belgium, England, Ireland and Norway. She’s the daughter of Neneh Cherry, best known for her international hit “Buffalo Stance” from 1989, a #4 hit on the CHR chart that June. Cherry is also the half-sister of Eagle-Eye Cherry, who landed at #1 for a week with “Save Tonight” back in January 1999. Billie Eilish comes in at #43 on the list with the ballad “When The Party’s Over”, which becomes her first charting hit at the format (though she’s now ranked twice on the Alternative radio listing.) Originally released in October of last year, Eilish’s tune has already been certified Gold here. Labelmates Khalid and H.E.R. round out all the debut action in this section of the chart: the former’s “Talk” is new at #48 and the latter’s “Hard Place” enters at #50. The latter hit’s seen a large spike in sales and streaming in the weeks since it was performed on the Grammy Awards. It’s H.E.R.’s first entry to date at the Top 40 format.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (February 26, 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: Billie Eilish starts a brand new “Party” on the Top 40 airwaves, with the results of a split week at the format playing out all over the top ten. Let’s add ’em up:

BILLIE, DO BE A HERO: With four particularly strong releases impacting at the format this Tuesday, the panel was all over the place by the end of the day. Taking over the top spot, Eilish’s “When The Party’s Over” led the pop party with 42 stations during its biggest session to date. The performer’s “Bury A Friend” also leads the adds report at the Alternative format for the third week in a row, where the song is now approaching the top 20. Just behind her in second place, the cut “What A Time” pairs Julia Michaels with Niall Horan, both enjoying their time on the list with 37 stations today. The single can be found on Michaels’s new EP Inner Monologue, Pt. 1, which also features a collaboration with Selena Gomez. Michaels also sings on the latest single by James Bay titled “Peer Pressure”, which led the adds report at Triple A radio (and finished in the top five at the Hot AC format) yesterday.

Additional top ten action on future hits from H.E.R. and Panic! At The Disco, earning 30 and 26 adds, respectively, could push both songs into the top 40 in the coming weeks.

With over 20 stations coming in early, P!nk‘s “Walk Me Home” should lead next week’s report with a solid total, though singles by Galantis (“Bones”) and NOTD (“So Close”) will also be in the mix and looking to take home the pop prize.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. BILLIE EILISH, “When The Party’s Over” (Darkroom/Interscope)
2. JULIA MICHAELS featuring NIALL HORAN, “What A Time” (Republic)
3-T. CARDI B & BRUNO MARS, “Please Me” (Atlantic)
3-T. H.E.R., “Hard Place” (RCA)
5. THE CHAINSMOKERS featuring 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Who Do You Love” (Disruptor/Columbia)
6. ZEDD & KATY PERRY, “365” (Interscope-Capitol)
