RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (April 28, 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. May you have a good end of April, because a new month is coming on Wednesday… and as the calendar changes, so do the charts! Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format:

SECONDS DON’T SUCK: From their upcoming set Happiness Begins, the Jonas Brothers are steady at #1 for the second week on the Top 40 chart with “Sucker”. The international hit also moves to #8 at Hot AC radio, while climbing to #34 and #46 on the AC and Rhythmic formats. Yes, the Jonas Brothers have a song on the Rhythmic chart for the first time ever. Meanwhile, the trio’s track “Cool” is up from 19-17 at Top 40 and 31-27 at Hot AC, which should make the top ten on both formats by the summer.

The bigger story of the week, however, is the massive debut of “ME!” by Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie, which bows at #24. The collaboration is the 28th top 40 hit for Swift and the first solo entry for Urie, who fronts Panic! At The Disco; the act ranks at #22 this week with “Hey Look Ma, I Made It”. “ME!” also lands at #18 on the Hot AC chart. This hit is not to be confused with “Me” from Paula Cole, who took her track to #11 and #20 on the Hot AC and CHR/Pop charts, respectively, in May 1998. Billie Eilish‘s “Bad Guy” makes a solid move from 42-35, earning her a second top 40 hit, while Travis Scott and The Weeknd bounce from 44-40 in the countdown with “Wake Up”. It marks Scott’s sixth entry in the region and The Weeknd’s 11th. Hilary Duff‘s song with the same name spent a week at this position when it peaked in August 2005.

Lil Dicky‘s all-star collaboration “Earth” revolves around the #46 spot, marking the first of this week’s top 50 entries. The song had a jolt in airplay earlier this week due to the annual Earth Day celebration, but has fallen off since the holiday. Push Baby, who got a #6 hit (“Me And My Broken Heart”) in June 2014 as Rixton, checks in at #49 with “Mama’s House”. It’s their first chart song under the new name, which follows the band’s proper relaunch earlier this year. Lastly, starting at #50, Dan + Shay‘s “Speechless” breaks onto the list. It’s a former #1 song on the country chart and the duo’s second to cross to the pop format following “Tequila”.

Chart Notes:

  • Let’s talk about “Me” this week! No, really, let’s do it. “Walk Me Home” advances from 2-1 on the chart, earning P!nk her seventh #1 hit to date. It also marks her first single to reach the top since “What About Us”, a three-week #1 in October 2017. Her current album Hurts 2B Human was released on Friday and should have a solid debut on the Billboard 200 list. However, the week’s only debut makes this “Me” time even clearer: a new collaboration from Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie titled “ME!” rockets in at #28. Also released on Friday, the song is the lead single off Swift’s upcoming studio album, due later this year. With eight #1 releases to date on my survey, she’s definitely hoping to get her ninth with this one. Meanwhile, Urie’s “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” (as a member of Panic! At The Disco) holds at #3 again on the current chart.

Chart Notes:

  • Kacey Musgraves‘s “Rainbow” lands atop my chart for a sixth sensational week, making it the first title to spend that long at the summit since George Ezra‘s “Shotgun” from last August and September. After debuting last week at #38, Dean Lewis‘s “Stay Awake” soars to #26, earning it the distinction of being the Biggest Mover in the countdown. Additionally, there are three new tunes on this week’s chart, led by Push Baby‘s “Mama’s House” at #38. The quartet previously charted as Rixton, who earned four chart entries in 2014 and 2015. Their biggest, “Me And My Broken Heart”, spent three weeks at #2 in May and June of the former and landed their song at #13 for the year. Daya reaches my top 40 in her first appearance since December 2017 with “Insomnia”, bowing at #39. The streaming hit heads to Top 40 radio soon. Finally, former American Idol champ Maddie Poppe is in with “Made You Miss”, her second top 40 song, which starts at #40. Her coronation song “Going Going Gone” had a week at #10 in August of last year and ranked at #52 overall for 2018. Her first major-label studio album is due later this year.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 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: our musical map of the soul leads us to a winning collaboration from BTS and Halsey, while singles from Push Baby and Travis Scott also push towards big starts. Let’s add ’em up:

IT’S A “BOY”: K-popping into the top spot on this week’s adds report, “Boy With Luv” by BTS and Halsey earns a huge first-week total at the Top 40 format, picking up 109 stations on impact. That sum is more than enough to give the group their biggest start to date and should launch this single well up the chart towards their highest-peaking entry at the format ever. Meanwhile, Halsey has history at the top with three #1 songs here, all of them collaborations, and we’ll see if she’s due for a fourth. “Boy” did not impact at any other format this week, but it may earn some Hot AC and Rhythmic airplay as the spring rolls on.

Travis Scott is also looking awake and alert with The Weeknd-assisted “Wake Up”, which falls into third place with 40 stations. A recent top 20 song on the Rhythmic survey, “Wake” should climb just as high on the Top 40 list. Additionally, Push Baby, a quartet who formerly charted as Rixton, is showing promise with a fifth place finish at 26 stations for “Mama’s House”. In 2014, the band’s best-performing song under their previous name, “Me And My Broken Heart”, reached #6 that June.

Next week, look out for impacting singles from Bazzi, Dan + Shay and MAX to continue to shine ahead of the summer season.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. BTS featuring HALSEY, “Boy With Luv” (BigHit/Columbia)
2. LIL NAS X, “Old Town Road” (Columbia)
3. TRAVIS SCOTT featuring THE WEEKND, “Wake Up” (Epic-Republic)

5. PUSH BABY, “Mama’s House” (SRV/Republic)
