ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (July 27, 2021)

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 yet another win for Camila Cabello at the pop radio format. Let’s add ’em up:

“GO” GETS GOING: For the first time in a while, the top seven songs on this week’s adds report (five of which officially impacted) haven’t previously appeared in the top ten on the usual Tuesday update. In the lead with a big 153 first-week stations, Camila Cabello easily took the top spot on the log with “Don’t Go Yet”, a song which debuted at #30 this past Sunday. It also led the report at the Hot AC format yesterday.

The second and third place entries were separated by one add: with 66 stations in a pre-impact week, “Industry Baby” started in the runner-up position for Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow. The single remains at #1 on Spotify on the U.S.-based chart and continues to do well on other platforms. Meanwhile, Bazzi earned his 65 adds for “I Like That”, as he aims to score his highest-charting song at the format in 2-1/2 years.

Rounding out the top five this week, social media star Dixie started in fourth place with the Rubi Rose-assisted “Psycho” at 34 adds, while the return of Swedish House Mafia earned them 33 stations for the Ty Dolla $ign and 070 Shake-assisted “Lifetime”, coming in fifth.

Charting singles from Normani, Pop Smoke and Post Malone returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next week for another action-packed adds session.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 18, 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. Gather your crew for what’s popping at the format this week:

REMEMBER THE “NAME”: Earning a second week at #1 on the Top 40 chart, Lil Nas X‘s “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” lands just 34 spins ahead of the song at #2: “Good 4 U”, a future #1 at the format for Olivia Rodrigo. Meanwhile, “Montero” advances from 3-1 on the Rhythmic chart.

Post Malone leads a pack of five debuts in the top 40, as “Motley Crew” advances from 43-29 this week. It’s his 15th top 40 song to date. Up from 46-35, Billie Eilish picks up her eighth top 40 single with “NDA”. At three letters in length, it becomes one of the shortest titles to land on the chart, though we’ve had even shorter ones historically, including “Go”, “I”, “If” and “No”. Maroon 5 secures their 30th top 40 entry at the format with another relatively short title, “Lost”, lifting from 45-37. Kane Brown and Blackbear are next at #38 with “Memory”, which debuts at that position. It’s their third and eighth top 40 hits, respectively, though Brown has earned quite a few more on the Country chart. A fifth and final title moves from 41-40 to just sneak into the region, as TikTok star Nic D scores his first top 40 hit with “Fine Apple”. The song now joins a handful of other titles containing apples or pineapples to enter the chart, including “Apples, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie”, “Little Green Apples”, “One Bad Apple” and “Pineapple Princess”.

Currently in the top 20 on both the Rhythmic and Urban charts, “Thot Sh*t” twerks onto the pop radio list for Megan Thee Stallion at #49. One spot lower, we have another significant hit from the two radio lists: “Late At Night”, debuting at #50 for Roddy Ricch.

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.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 30, 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. For one peachy holiday weekend romp up the pop radio chart, here’s what’s ripening at the format this week:

YOU’RE A PEACH: Justin Bieber easily picks up a third week atop on the Top 40 radio list with Daniel Caesar and GIVĒON-assisted “Peaches”, which is very likely to reign for a fourth week if the current trends remain on the same track. Elsewhere, the tune dips from 1-2 on the Rhythmic chart, but rises from 11-10 at the Hot AC format.

It’s another busy week in the top 40 with four new songs in the region, led by Marshmello and the Jonas Brothers with the collaboration “Leave Before You Love Me”, which bounces from 45-27. It’s their 11th and 13th top 40 hits at the format, respectively. Majid Jordan earns their first top 40 song in 7-1/2 years with “Waves Of Blue”, which splashes up the list from 42-36. Rising from 41-39, “I Did It” is still moving for DJ Khaled with Post Malone, Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Baby and DaBaby. As individual artists, this single marks their 12th, 14th, fifth, first and fourth top 40 hits, respectively. Polo G also takes his recent #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 into the top 40 on the pop radio list, as “Rapstar” advances from 44-40. It’s his first top 40 hit here, though he’s had plenty on both the Rhythmic and Urban charts.

Two new songs enter the top 50 this week: TikTok star and chart newcomer Bella Poarch comes in at #46 with her viral hit “Build A Bitch”, while Em starts without a bullet at #48 with “Say What You Mean”.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 9, 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. This week’s survey is full of rap stars and pop stars aplenty, so here’s what’s moving at the format this week:

STILL SAVING THE CHART: “Save Your Tears” spends a third week at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart, as The Weeknd‘s big hit lifts from 2-1 on the Hot AC chart. This will likely be its last week at the summit here on the pop list, as Justin Bieber is salivating for a sweet jump to the top with this week’s #2 song, the Daniel Caesar and GIVĒON-assisted “Peaches”.

Hong Kong’s Jackson Wang is up from 41-39 on the Top 40 radio chart with “LMLY (Leave Me Loving You)”, giving Wang his third top 40 song at the format. Meanwhile, Los Angeles-based songwriter Annika Wells earns her first top 40 hit as an artist with “Sucks Being Sober”, leaping from 45-40.

In the top 50, Polo G debuts at #45 with “Rapstar”, which recently starred at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Starting at #48, “I Did It” marks a giant collaboration for DJ Khaled with Post Malone, Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Baby and DaBaby. You can find it on the recent album Khaled Khaled, which just landed at the top of the Billboard 200 list.
