ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (December 12, 2017)

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: G-Eazy and Halsey may be leading the charge once more, but that won’t stop impacting songs from Post Malone and Thirty Seconds To Mars, as well as a pre-impact track from Camila Cabello, in their quest for pop glory. Here’s what happened during the last impact date of 2017:

“SAME” IS THE NAME: While G-Eazy and Halsey‘s “Him & I” (on Capitol/RCA) holds at #1 on the latest Top 40 radio report this Tuesday, scoring with another 51 adds in its second week, Syco/Epic’s Camila Cabello engages in some early festive fun with this week’s runner-up song, “Never Be The Same”, netting 41 stations. (The hit officially impacts on January 9.) Of course, her new single comes as her last one, the Young Thug-assisted “Havana”, continues its run at the top of the weekly chart. Both singles can be found on her forthcoming self-titled album, due January 12.

Two other reactive tracks in the mix on this week’s report come from Interscope’s Thirty Seconds To Mars and Republic’s Post Malone, the former with “Walk On Water” (26 new stations) and the latter with “I Fall Apart” (25 new stations). The rock group’s latest, coming in fourth place with two other releases, was recently at #1 on the Alternative chart for four weeks. Malone’s song, an album cut from last year that was revived when a live video went viral several months ago, is approaching the top ten on Rhythmic radio. It’s in seventh place among the top ten Most Added songs.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. G-EAZY & HALSEY, “Him & I” (Capitol/RCA)
2. CAMILA CABELLO, “Never Be The Same” (Syco/Epic)
3. BTS featuring DESIIGNER, “MIC Drop” (BigHit/RED)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (October 24, 2017)

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: at least nine singles ended up officially impacting this week… yes, nine, so adds were pretty split all around. That being said, new titles from Liam Payne and NF were among the big winners of that battle. Check them all out below:

“DOWN” FOR THE CROWN: Format newcomer NF, already popular in the Christian world, takes the Most Added title on this week’s report with “Let You Down”, scoring 38 new stations on impact. This achievement comes after plenty of early commitments came in for the song over the last month (its impact date was even moved up a week) and its debut in the top 50 over the weekend. “Down” is searching to become the first crossover release by a Christian performer to reach the top 40 on Top 40 radio since Britt Nicole‘s “Gold”, which peaked at #29 in February 2013. Based on current gains, it could do it as early as this weekend. (I guess he was looking to a higher power for some help!)

Liam Payne‘s “Bedroom Floor” (#3, 26 new stations) also has a significant group of adds, as the former One Direction singer is trying for his second solo #1 on the pop chart, following the Quavo-assisted “Strip That Down”, which held there for a single week about two weeks ago. A couple of interesting collaborations also join the party in the top ten this week, with “Meant To Be” (#5, 22 new stations) by pop singer Bebe Rexha and country duo Florida Georgia Line pacing just ahead of “Feels Great” (#6, 20 new stations) from EDM trio Cheat Codes and rapper Fetty Wap. Look for both of those future hits, along with Payne’s solo track, to chart in the coming weeks.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (ELEVEN)
1. NF, “Let You Down” (Capitol CMG/Caroline)
2. NIALL HORAN, “Too Much To Ask” (Capitol)
3-T. CHARLIE PUTH, “How Long” (Atlantic)
3-T. LIAM PAYNE, “Bedroom Floor” (Republic)
5. BEBE REXHA featuring FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE, “Meant To Be” (Warner Bros.)
6. CHEAT CODES featuring FETTY WAP, “Feels Great” (300 Entertainment/in2une)
7. ALEX AIONO featuring TRINIDAD CARDONA, “Does It Feel Like Falling” (Interscope)
8. MACKLEMORE featuring KESHA, “Good Old Days” (Warner Bros.)
9. POST MALONE featuring 21 SAVAGE, “rockstar” (Republic)
10-T. DAYA, “New” (Interscope)
10-T. TAYLOR SWIFT, “…Ready For It?” (Big Machine/Republic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (October 17, 2017)

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: Calvin Harris and friends get real by “Faking”, Daya tries to prove that “New” trumps old and much more! It’s time for yet another musical adventure, so let’s get swinging into this jungle of jams:

HISTORY IN THE “FAKING”: Though Charlie Puth‘s “How Long” emerges as this week’s Most Added song at the format for a second week, securing 43 new stations, there was a tight battle between four records for most of the day. Landing just behind the 25-year-old pop star is the collaboration from Calvin Harris, Kehlani and Lil Yachty, “Faking It”. However, the 33 adds that it picked up this week are very much real. It looks to be the third top 40 hit from Harris’s current set, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1, a #2 album from earlier this year.

Daya‘s “New” also picked up a solid selection of stations this Tuesday, scoring 32 adds in its impact week, putting it in third place. With a new era on a new record label, the 18-year-old is hoping for her fifth top 40 hit, as well as her fourth top ten title. Rounding out the top five tracks of the week, “rockstar” (#4, 25 stations) from Post Malone featuring 21 Savage and “Good Old Days” (#5, 24 stations) by Macklemore featuring Kesha continue the collaboration consumption on the pop chart. (Both of those tunes are well into the top 40 at this point.)

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. CHARLIE PUTH, “How Long” (Atlantic)
2. CALVIN HARRIS featuring KEHLANI & LIL YACHTY, “Faking It” (Columbia)
3. DAYA, “New” (Interscope)
4. POST MALONE featuring 21 SAVAGE, “rockstar” (Republic)
5. MACKLEMORE featuring KESHA, “Good Old Days” (Warner Bros.)
6. KHALID, “Young Dumb & Broke” (Right Hand Music/RCA)
7. NIALL HORAN, “Too Much To Ask” (Capitol)
8. BLACKBEAR, “Do Re Mi” (Beartrap/Alamo/Interscope)
9. CARDI B, “Bodak Yellow” (KSR/Atlantic)
10. CAMILA CABELLO featuring YOUNG THUG, “Havana” (Syco/Epic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (October 10, 2017)

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: it’s a “Long” way to #1 for Charlie Puth, but his musical momentum has attracted the pop panel once again. Plus, new singles from Macklemore and Kesha, Niall Horan and more! Check them all out here:

TELL THE PUTH: You gave him your “Attention”, to the tune of four weeks at #1 earlier this year, but Charlie Puth needs a bit more of it. No, he’s not an attention hog, but he is piggybacking on his big hit to bring us “How Long”, another single from his new album Voicenotes, due January 19 of next year. In the “Long” run, it looks like this’ll be another winner, as it takes the Most Added title on this week’s CHR/Top 40 report, scoring 72 stations on impact. That’s a significantly larger sum than “Attention” received a few months ago in its impact week, taking in 43, though it did pick up 31 the week before its official adds date. This Sunday, it may have a chance of debuting in the top 40 on the published update, which would be a great start for the single.

Just below Puth’s new song, “Good Old Days” (#2, 66 stations) by Macklemore featuring Kesha and “Too Much To Ask” (#3, 54 stations) by Niall Horan both have solid starts, with the former entry also picking up a handful of Hot AC stations yesterday. The latter single, Horan’s third from his forthcoming Flicker release, impacts three weeks ahead of “Kiwi”, the third single from former bandmate Harry Styles‘s self-titled album. Will Horan score three chart-topping solo hits in a row? Stay tuned. In the meantime, expect his latest tune to burst into the top 50 by the next published update.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (ELEVEN)
1. CHARLIE PUTH, “How Long” (Atlantic)
2. MACKLEMORE featuring KESHA, “Good Old Days” (Warner Bros.)
3. NIALL HORAN, “Too Much To Ask” (Capitol)
4. IMAGINE DRAGONS, “Thunder” (KIDinaKORNER/Interscope)
5-T. CAMILA CABELLO featuring YOUNG THUG, “Havana” (Syco/Epic)
5-T. ED SHEERAN, “Perfect” (Atlantic)
7. CARDI B, “Bodak Yellow” (KSR/Atlantic)
8. POST MALONE featuring 21 SAVAGE, “rockstar” (Republic)
9. KHALID, “Young Dumb & Broke” (Right Hand Music/RCA)
10-T. DUA LIPA, “New Rules” (Warner Bros.)
10-T. LINKIN PARK, “One More Light” (Warner Bros.)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (October 3, 2017)

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: proven pop hits from Ed Sheeran and Camila Cabello continue to pile on the adds, while new singles from DJ Snake and Marshmello dance their way into the top ten. Check out the top tunes from a fast-moving format in our latest report:

“SILENCE” IS THE “WAY”: Two of the biggest breakouts on this week’s adds report are EDM collaborations featuring two acts that are buzzing all over the world. Lauv is the featured vocalist on “A Different Way” (#5, 28 adds) by DJ Snake, while Khalid‘s back in the mix with his potential fourth top 40 hit, “Silence” (#6 – tie, 23 adds) by Marshmello. While DJ Snake has four top ten songs to date, Marshmello is relatively new to the format, with prior releases like “Alone” and “Ritual” (featuring Wrabel) landing some mixshow play both last and earlier this year. With two stars on the rise, and two DJ/producers at the top of their game, is the panel ready to move their feet to the dance beat, or will the two songs get lost in the shuffle? Stay tuned!

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. ED SHEERAN, “Perfect” (Atlantic)
2. CAMILA CABELLO featuring YOUNG THUG, “Havana” (Syco/Epic)
3-T. IMAGINE DRAGONS, “Thunder” (KIDinaKORNER/Interscope)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (October 1, 2017)

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. Yom Kippur has ended for the year, and the fasting is complete. Still, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t hungry for the taste of top 40 stats on a Sunday night. Ooh, it’s delicious. Have a look at this week’s #1 song and all the notable debuts in the top 50:

ALL TIME “SLOW”: Niall Horan‘s “Slow Hands” wiggles its fingers, and with some musical magic, collects a second week at #1 on the CHR/Top 40 chart. It’s the 21st week in the top 40 for the song. It loses a little over 400 spins in the last seven days, which is bound to increase during the next week, though it certainly had an impressive run to the top. Horan still has a chance to top the Hot AC chart before all is said and done, as “Slow” rises from 4-3 this week. The competition may be fierce, but given its Top 40 success, it could sneak in some time at #1.

The Irish singer’s “Too Much To Ask”, the third single from Flicker, ranks just below the top 50 this week, and is poised to reach the region before its impact date on October 10. Horan’s former bandmate, Liam Payne, advances 3-2 with the Quavo-assisted “Strip That Down”. Two members of the same act replacing each other at #1 is quite the rarity. Should it occur next week, prepare for a bit of Top 40 trivia to come your way…

MALONE AGAIN (NATURALLY): Four new songs break into the top 50 on this week’s CHR/Top 40 chart, lead by a strong #41 debut for Post Malone‘s “rockstar”, featuring 21 Savage. The hot track, which soared to #1 on iTunes upon release, makes a giant 42-18 jump on this week’s Rhythmic chart, while it also charges into the top 40 on the Urban survey. A couple of spots below that, a new single from Khalid enters the top 50. “Young Dumb & Broke”, which is currently #9 on the Rhythmic chart, bows in at #43. In a couple of days, Khalid’s collaboration with Marshmello, called “Silence”, impacts at the format, just a week after “Young” had its impact week. We’ll see if the two songs can slay the charts together, or if they’ll cancel each other out. (I’m betting on the former.)

As it climbs to #34 on the Hot AC survey, “Dusk Till Dawn” debuts at #47 on this week’s CHR/Top 40 chart for ZAYN and Sia. The tune marks the fourth solo top 50 entry for the former One Direction member, though it reaches the countdown in the same week that another of the group’s members, Louis Tomlinson, is purged from the chart with “Back To You”, featuring Bebe Rexha and Digital Farm Animals. Lastly, at #50, duo Axwell Λ Ingrosso scores their second chart single of the year with “More Than You Know”. It follows the Kid Ink-assisted “I Love You”, which got as high as #28 at the end of April. Fortunately, the two guys weren’t chasing after remaking the Martika hit of the same name; her “More Than You Know” peaked at #16 in March 1989.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (September 26, 2017)

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: the battle is on between Ed Sheeran and Post Malone, who were stuck in a very close race for most of the day. It’s our last report for September, so, we’ve got to make it a good one! Here are the winners from this week’s chase for adds:

SPECIAL ED: With the latest radio single from his 2x Platinum album ÷, Ed Sheeran‘s “Perfect” is poised to give the performer another big hit at the format. It’s the Most Added track of the week, as it scores 57 more stations on impact, with a number of adds coming in early for it over the last several weeks. Sheeran’s single has also been the Most Added title on the Hot AC report over the last two weeks, where it recently surged into the top 20. (“Shape Of You”, a former #1, remains in the top ten there.) His tour finds itself in Pennsylvania, Michigan and New York over the next week or so, where I’m sure “Perfect” will be a highlight of the show. It will likely be high on the report again next week, with fewer impacting songs at the format. (Phew!)

BETTER OFF MALONE: With a pair of chart songs to his credit here, “White Iverson” (#28, 2016) and “Congratulations” (#20, 2017), Post Malone is making his presence known on the CHR/Top 40 chart, even though his success is greater at other formats. However, his latest single, the 21 Savage-assisted “rockstar”, could prove to be his biggest hit to date across all formats. It has the Most Added title at both Rhythmic and Urban radio, and it’s the second Most Added title at the Top 40 format, with 46 stations on impact. Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys set will likely come out later this year, but with “rockstar” still rockin’ all over the place, he can take his time with rolling out the album. It’s sure to be another winner on the charts.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. ED SHEERAN, “Perfect” (Atlantic)
2. POST MALONE featuring 21 SAVAGE, “rockstar” (Republic)
3. CAMILA CABELLO featuring YOUNG THUG, “Havana” (Syco/Epic)
4. IMAGINE DRAGONS, “Thunder” (KIDinaKORNER/Interscope)
5. HAILEE STEINFELD & ALESSO featuring FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE & WATT, “Let Me Go” (Republic)
6. NICK JONAS, “Find You” (Island/Republic)
7. TAYLOR SWIFT, “…Ready For It?” (Big Machine/Republic)
8. KHALID, “Young Dumb & Broke” (Right Hand Music/RCA)
9. CARDI B, Bodak Yellow” (KSR/Atlantic)
10. DUA LIPA, “New Rules” (Warner Bros.)
