ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 14, 2017)

Welcome to Add Lib, a new weekly report on POP! Goes The Charts that’s mad about CHR/Top 40 adds, based on station data provided by Mediabase 24/7 and Add Board. This week: it’s raining, it’s pouring, but Nicki Minaj and Stargate are scoring with pop panel breakouts, while the usual suspects keep things busy in the top ten. Time to get wet (no, not that Get Wet) and splash around with some station stats:

IN THE P!NK: They’ve been hitting as writers and producers on the CHR chart since the fall of 2000, but Tor Hermansen and Mikkel Eriksen weren’t content with just that. So, the guys from Norway, together as Stargate, are now on the verge of their first top 40 hit as artists. “Waterfall”, featuring pop superstars P!nk and Sia, has a good start with the (star)gatekeepers of the format this week, launching with a very healthy 41 adds — the Most Added song of the week. Coincidentally, this was the week in 2000 (the 3/17/00 issue of Radio & Records, to be exact) that P!nk’s debut hit, “There You Go”, first reached the top 40 at the format. So, here she goes again! Stations in New York City, Chicago and San Francisco are among the 41, so watch out for this song and its potential fast ascent up the survey.

Two of Stargate’s recent compositions are currently top 40 on the format: “Issues” (#14) by Julia Michaels, and “Run Up” (#35) by Major Lazer featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR and Nicki Minaj. The duo both co-wrote and co-produced the singles. (More on Minaj below!) No word on when any additional music by the two men will be coming out, regardless of whether it’s under their own name or a production for another act. Either way, we’ll be looking out for it.

Not many Norwegian acts are able to break the U.S. charts, though a-ha, M2M and Madcon are among them. Of course, a-ha is the most successful of the bunch, as “Take On Me” (driven by its iconic music video) spent three weeks at #1 on Radio & Records in October 1985. They can stick to drawing comic books; I’ll stick to drawing conclusions for the pop world.

“TEARS” FOR FEARS: Everybody wants to rule the adds report, but just one song can make it to the top. However, a top five placing on Tuesday is still worth shouting about. Rapper and singer Nicki Minaj sows some seeds and comes up with a winner, “Regret In Your Tears”. It’s new on 23 stations, good for the fourth Most Added song of the week. “Regret” is one of three songs that Minaj issued on Friday as a part of a surprise release; one of them, “No Frauds” (with Drake and Lil Wayne), is the Most Added record at Rhythmic and Urban radio this week. That song addresses two recent diss records by Remy Ma, who reached a peak of #45 at the CHR/Top 40 format last year with “All The Way Up”, a collaboration with Fat Joe. All three of Minaj’s tracks remain in the top 40 overall on iTunes.

Raised in Queens, she first hit the CHR/Top 40 chart as a main-credited act in June 2010 with “Your Love”, which got as high as #21 that August. She’s the only act with two songs in this week’s top ten Most Added tracks at the format, which also includes her feature on Jason Derulo‘s “Swalla”. Needless to say, radio is head over heels for her once again. (No, Tears For Fears isn’t making a CHR comeback… at least not yet. I’m looking at you, The Weeknd.)
