ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (July 16, 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: those Jonas Brothers are “Only” on top again, but there are new singles stepping into the top ten as well, including a viral dance smash. Let’s get onto the floor and add ’em up:

THE HUMAN TOUCH: Having cleared more than 70% of the Top 40 panel, the Jonas Brothers are back at the top of the report, earning another 42 stations this week, which puts them just ahead of Blanco Brown‘s “The Git Up” with 37 adds. “Git” picked up 21 stations yesterday at Country radio, where it tied for fourth place. Brown’s debut single is now in the top 40 at the pop format as of last Sunday’s published update and could receive a larger boost by this weekend.

The first collaboration for Monsta X and French Montana, titled “Who Do U Love?”, is loved at 25 stations this week. Tying for fifth place on the log, it should easily crack the top 50 in the coming days. Reactive tracks from Lewis Capaldi, Miley Cyrus and Zara Larsson are among those rounding out the top ten.

Next week, it’s likely to be another wild session with new releases from NF, OneRepublic, Sam Feldt and others.

2. BLANCO BROWN, “The Git Up” (BBR/BMG-Warner)

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 all about the “Goodbyes”. No, not to summer or this weekly post, but a track that’s been lighting up the pop airwaves since the weekend. Let’s add ’em up:

THE BIGGEST POST OF THE SUMMER: With their first collaboration to chart at the pop format, Post Malone and Young Thug are saying hello to the top spot on the weekly adds report with “Goodbyes”, opening with 132 stations on impact. The song is also atop the log at the Rhythmic radio format, earning 51 stations there. The cut made its chart debut at #35 on the official update last Sunday and should see a nice climb this week following its robust add total.

Ellie Goulding and Juice WRLD‘s “Hate Me” also scored a very solid 42 stations on impact and a second place finish. This tune also charted on Sunday, entering at #48, and should be well on its way towards the top 40 now. Yesterday, the single picked up ten stations at the Hot AC format, ranking in third place on that list.

Rounding out the top three and charging ahead with a total of 30 stations, Kaskade and Meghan Trainor‘s “With You” was also in good shape on the report.

Building titles from the Blanco Brown, the Jonas Brothers and Lewis Capaldi are among those rounding out the top ten.

Next week, Brown’s “The Git Up” should continue to dance its way into the five, though several collaborations are also in the mix.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 7, 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. The barbecues might be over for a moment, but we’re still grilling some hits in the pop music world. Let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

STILL TALKING IT UP: Khalid‘s “Talk” remains at #1 for the third week on the Top 40 chart, marking his longest run to date at the top spot. He now has a total of seven weeks at the summit over three songs in a little under a year. Will the multi-format hit grab a fourth week here, or will someone else talk louder next Sunday? Stay tuned. Meanwhile, you can also find “Talk” at #2 on the chart at Rhythmic radio, while it also ranks at #4 and #10 on the Urban and Urban AC lists.

“Goodbyes” is one of three songs to say hello to the top 40 this week, as the Post Malone and Young Thug collaboration enters at #35 after its premiere on Friday. It’s the tenth top 40 entry for Malone and the second for Thug, both of whom have reached the top. Charting his 19th top 40 hit is Ed Sheeran, who bolts from 47-36 with “Beautiful People”. It features the aforementioned Khalid in his ninth top 40 appearance. It’s the third top 40 track in the past two months from Sheeran’s No.6 Collaborations Project, due next week and expected to the lead the Billboard 200 list later this month. Also scoring the third top 40 entry from their former #1 album Happiness Begins, the Jonas Brothers jump from 48-38 with their ninth chart hit overall, “Only Human”.

Bouncing into the top 50 this week, we have six new tracks in the region. The highest of the five, at #43, comes from Zara Larsson with “All The Time”. Her last entry here, “Ruin My Life”, reached #16 in February. One notch below her, the viral track “The Git Up” marks the first chart appearance for Blanco Brown (no relation to Benny Blanco) at #44. If you’re still trying to learn the moves to the song, don’t worry, you’re not alone: even more listeners will be attempting their best cowboy boogie when “Git” impacts at the Country and Top 40 radio formats later this month. Speaking of the former, Country star Kane Brown makes it over to the pop list for the first time with his Marshmello collaboration “One Thing Right”, debuting at #45. Up next, Ellie Goulding blasts in with a collaboration with Juice WRLD called “Hate Me”, which starts at #48. The release impacts on Tuesday along with the Post Malone and Young Thug single that was noted earlier. Further entries this week come from the late Avicii and Aloe Blacc, who bow at #49 with “SOS”, and the Herve Pagez, Diplo and Charli XCX collaboration called “Spicy”, which sizzles at #50. Avicii and Blacc went to #1 for three weeks in October and November 2013 with “Wake Me Up”, though the latter artist wasn’t credited on it. “Spicy” takes on the classic “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls and interpolates it into a new version; the original track peaked at #4 for four weeks in March 1997.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 16, 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. Wowzer, it’s been another busy week on the airwaves and we’ve got all the essential information for you. Let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

WOW, IT’S NUMBER ONE: After a slow run to the top of the pop chart, Post Malone‘s “Wow” climbs from 2-1 in its 23rd week in the top 40 to become the new #1 song at the format. “Wow” is Malone’s third chart-topper on the Top 40 survey, following the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted “Psycho” (four weeks) and “Better Now” (two weeks) from last year. The cut joins titles such as “Bad” and “Fly” (among others) in the category of #1 radio hits with the fewest number of characters.

There are three new entries in this week’s top 40, led by “Find U Again” from Mark Ronson and Camila Cabello, which makes a giant move from 41-30. It’s the third solo top 40 song for Ronson, who has also charted with the duo Silk City, and the 11th solo hit for Cabello, who previously charted with the quintet Fifth Harmony. Calming the #39 spot, it’s superstar Taylor Swift with “You Need To Calm Down”, which blasts straight into the region to become her 29th such entry here. Finally, swinging up from 42-40, we have the second top 40 track for the boy band In Real Life with “Crazy AF”. Top 40 radio isn’t exactly going crazy over this one: it’s been slowly moving up in the top 50 since early May and probably won’t get much further. Still, a top 40 song is a top 40 song.

On a roll and climbing into the top 50 at #43, Miley Cyrus debuts with “Mother’s Daughter”. The single can be found on her She Is Coming set, an EP that she released earlier this month. Newcomer Christian Paul also hits the list at #50 with “Strong”, becoming his first chart entry. His forthcoming EP is due at the beginning of July.
