RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 11, 2021)

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. X marks the spot for what’s popping at the format this week:

THE “NAME” ON TOP: With his first #1 song on the Top 40 radio chart, Lil Nas X lifts from 2-1 with “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)”. The hit also advances from 5-3 at the Rhythmic format.

Debuting on the survey at #38 is the new collaboration from The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber, which uses one of the most common one-word titles of all-time: “Stay”. It’s their third and 36th top 40 hits, respectively. Rising from 42-39, “Cloudy Day” is now the third top 40 entry for Tones And I and her latest from the Welcome To The Madhouse album, due this coming Friday. Meanwhile, P!nk earns her 30th top hit with “All I Know So Far”, a song featured on the soundtrack to her Amazon documentary of the same name. It’s up a single notch to #40.

Starting at #43, Post Malone leads a solid crew of four top 50 entries with “Motley Crew”. The song also lands in the top 40 at the Rhythmic format this week. Maroon 5 is up next at #45 with “Lost”, the new single from their recent album Jordi. The track is already rising in the top 40 at Hot AC radio. A new single from Billie Eilish enters one spot lower at #46. “NDA” is the fifth song off her forthcoming album Happier Than Ever to chart at this format, this one coming about three weeks ahead of the project’s street date. Finally, Trinidad Cardona cashes in with the TikTok-approved winner “Dinero”, which hits the jackpot with a debut at #48.

  • There’s a duo at #1 on my personal chart this week… except it’s not Silk Sonic, who have been at the top spot for the last three weeks. Climbing from 2-1 on the countdown, “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” is the first song to reach the top of my list for both Elle King and Miranda Lambert. The tune heads for adds at Country radio in three weeks, while it continues its ascent towards the top 20 at Hot AC radio. From the album Sour, this week’s Biggest Mover is “Good 4 U”, soaring from 38-28 for Olivia Rodrigo. Four tracks are new to the top 40 this time around, with several former #1 acts among them. Coming in at #33, a new single from Bleachers called “Stop Making This Hurt” claims the Highest Debut of the bunch. Jack Antonoff has five chart-toppers to his credit: three as a member of fun. and two leading Bleachers. Duran Duran is visible at #36 with “Invisible”, the lead single from their upcoming 15th studio album. It’s been six years since the group last appeared at the summit with the Janelle Monáe and Nile Rodgers-assisted “Pressure Off”, which spent five weeks there. In at #38 this week, Anne-Marie and Niall Horan duet on “Our Song”, which impacts at the Hot AC format this coming Monday. Finally, TikTok star and singer Bella Poarch is in at #40 with her very first release: “Build A Bitch”, which is coming off a viral music video and plenty of social media buzz.
