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. “Good” times are ahead on the pop survey… are you ready for the latest top bops in the radio universe? Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:
“GOOD” STUFF: It’s been a big breakout year for Lizzo and it just keeps getting better. This week, she earns her second #1 single on the Top 40 survey with “Good As Hell”, up 2-1. The multi-format hit also jumps from 8-7 and 18-15 on the Rhythmic and Hot AC radio lists, respectively. With a slow holiday week on the horizon, it should easily earn a second week at the top.
From TikTok to top 40 success, newcomer Arizona Zervas soars onto the survey all the way up at #33 with “Roxanne”, which also jumps right into the top 30 on the Rhythmic list. Another single that’s also been developing on the video app is “Make You Mine” by the new trio PUBLIC, which makes its entry with a move from 41-38. Zedd and Kehlani‘s “Good Thing” jumps from 50-39 on the chart, giving the two performers their 15th and fourth top 40 entries, respectively. Finally, up from 46-40, Louis Tomlinson takes “We Made It” into the region, earning him his third solo top 40 hit outside of One Direction.
Billie Eilish, who already appears in the top 20 with “All The Good Girls Go To Hell”, is in at #43 with “Everything I Wanted”. The tune was released as a one-off single last week and does not appear on her current studio album. “Checklist” checks in at #47 for the first collaboration by MAX and Chromeo, as Ed Sheeran, Camila Cabello and Cardi B are headed “South Of The Border” and into the #48 position. The latter collaboration impacts at the format in early December. It also enters the Hot AC chart at #49.
Have an amazing Thanksgiving from PGTC!
