RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (September 6, 2020)

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. Hope you’re enjoying the long weekend! It’s a super sugary one at the format. Here’s what’s popping this week:

“SUGAR” LANDS: Harry Styles holds at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for a sixth week with “Watermelon Sugar”, still more than 1,900 spins ahead of Lewis Capaldi‘s “Before You Go” at #2. The tune also climbs from 5-4 on the Hot AC chart. Some stations are beginning to add “Falling” from the Fine Line album, though it has not yet been confirmed as the next U.S. single.

Get out your vacuums: with three titles headed to recurrent status and several other releases collapsing in airplay, there are five new tracks in the top 40 this week. Leading things off, Calvin Harris and The Weeknd make a move from 47-31 with “Over Now”. It’s their 21st and 15th top 40 hits to date, respectively. Landing at #34 is the first top 40 entry for the act BLACKPINK, “Ice Cream”, a collaboration with Selena Gomez. This is her 20th top 40 hit as a solo artist. After several weeks of landing just outside the top 40, newcomer Zoe Wees climbs from 41-37 with “Control”, her first time in the region. The final two entries are performed by acts who score their second top 40 singles at the format: Saweetie rises from 42-39 with “Tap In”, as Regard and RAYE are up from 44-40 with “Secrets”. “Tap” is a current top five smash on the Rhythmic and Urban charts, while “Secrets” recently led the Dance chart.

It’s also really busy in the top 50 this week: Conan Gray leads things off at #46 with “Heather”, which could become his second top 40 entry here. It’s already climbing in the top 40 on the Hot AC chart. With their recent #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion start at #48 with “WAP”, a top ten hit on the Rhythmic chart that’s just below the region at Urban radio on this week’s update. Joel Corry and MNEK are atop the Dance chart once again with “Head & Heart”, which lands at #49 on the Top 40 chart. Finally, with a song that went viral on the video app TikTok, Claire Rosinkranz debuts at #50 with “Backyard Boy”.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 12, 2020)

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. Put your mask on and the radio up, because here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

PUT YOUR “LIGHTS” ON: The Weeknd‘s “Blinding Lights” picks up a seventh nonconsecutive week at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart, down a little over 300 spins from last week. Look for Trevor Daniel‘s “Falling”, which remains at #2 again, to attempt a run at the top spot during the coming week.

Three singles enter the top 40 on this week’s chart, led by the first top 40 entry for Jack Harlow, which vaults from 45-34. “What’s Poppin” also moves from 2-1 on the Rhythmic chart, becoming Harlow’s first #1 tune at the format, and currently ranks at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. Following him, Kygo and OneRepublic lift from 44-35 with “Lose Somebody”. This is the seventh top 40 entry for Kygo on the list and the 14th for OneRepublic, who have been charting since 2007. Format newcomers Topic and A7S also land in the region with their recent Dance radio hit “Breaking Me”, which climbs from 47-40 this week.

Flying into the top 50, Ava Max‘s “Kings & Queens” has a royal landing at #43, as she gets closer to her third top 40 song to date. It starts four spots ahead of StaySolidRocky‘s viral hit “Party Girl”, which checks in at #47. Additionally, AJ Mitchell is new at #48 with “Burn”. Mitchell and Max previously collaborated on his song “Slow Dance”, which peaked at #26 in December 2019.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 5, 2020)

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 temperature is hot and the songs of the summer are sizzling, so here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

ANOTHER JULY WEEKND: With a small drop in airplay vs. last week, The Weeknd‘s big hit “Blinding Lights” is launching all kinds of fireworks at the Top 40 format, as it easily earns a sixth nonconsecutive week at the top. The multi-format smash also leads the Hot AC chart for an eighth week. Will it extend its run at both formats by next Sunday? Stay tuned.

Two big collaborations debut in the top 40 on this week’s survey: the higher of the two, Trevor Daniel and Selena Gomez‘s “Past Life”, bolts onto the entire chart way up at #29. It’s the second top 40 entry for Daniel, who’s still on the rise from 4-2 with “Falling”, and the 19th solo chart hit for Gomez. Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo‘s “Savage Love” also has an impressive start at #38, marking their first and 21st top 40 singles at the format, respectively. Jawsh 685’s original instrumental tune went viral on the video platform TikTok earlier this year.

More collaborations are also making themselves known in the top 50 this week: Kygo and OneRepublic‘s “Lose Somebody”, rising through the top 30 on the Hot AC chart, wins a Top 40 debut at #44, as Regard and Raye‘s “Secrets” has a quieter start at #49.

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 high-flying new hit from Twenty One Pilots dominates the adds list without much concern at all. Let’s add ’em up:

NEXT “LEVEL” ADDS: With the Most Added tune at Alternative, Hot AC and Top 40 radio this week, Twenty One Pilots earn a total of 106 first-week stations on the pop airwaves with “Level Of Concern”. It’s their biggest launch ever at this format. After only going as high as #29 with the most successful crossover single from their 2018 album Trench, this release should do much better.

The only other impacting song to break the top ten comes from JoJo, who earns 14 stations for “Man”, which ties for eighth place.

Charting singles from Drake, Dua Lipa and The Weeknd return to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap. Stay safe out there.

1. TWENTY ONE PILOTS, “Level Of Concern” (Fueled By Ramen/EMG)
2. DRAKE, “Toosie Slide” (OVO/Republic)
3. POWFU featuring BEABADOOBEE, “Coffee For Your Head (Death Bed)” (Robots & Humans/Columbia)
4-T. SAINT JHN, “Roses” (Godd Complexx/HITCO)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 31, 2020)

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: Dua Lipa delivers one more delicious disco delight to the format and the panel is dancing along. Who else is into the groove? Let’s add ’em up:

“BREAK” IT TO MAKE IT: Breaking at 143 stations this week, a giant start given radio’s ongoing adjustments to the pandemic, Dua Lipa’s “Break My Heart” is easily the Most Added song at the Top 40 format. This buzzing track is the follow-up to the current #1 song here, “Don’t Start Now”, which has been at the summit for six consecutive weeks. “Break” started at #40 on last weekend’s official chart, becoming Lipa’s tenth top entry to date, and is likely to make a larger move by this coming weekend’s update.

The reactive new collaboration from PartyNextDoor and Rihanna also does well on impact… and you better believe it. Landing in third place with 35 stations this week, “Believe It” is also poised to become a big record later this spring. Unsurprisingly, it leads the adds report at both the Rhythmic and Urban radio formats this week.

Charting songs from Regard, Surfaces and The Weeknd are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap, featuring new releases from JoJo and Pink Sweat$. Stay safe out there.

This week: the sight of a new The Weeknd track gives the format something to look at after some dismal returns last week. Let’s add ’em up:

“EYES” ON NUMBER ONE: It may not be a hot Peter Gabriel remake, but The Weeknd is about to fly up the Top 40 list with “In Your Eyes”, spotted at 60 stations in its first week.

Both “Blinding Lights” and “Heartless” are still in the top ten at the format, with the former still charging towards the top spot.

Ellie Goulding‘s current release is also on the move, as the Blackbear-assisted “Worry About Me” checks in with 33 stations for the week, good for a second place finish. Blackbear ranked at #2 on last week’s Top 40 chart with “Hot Girl Bummer”.

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: Demi Lovato empowers the panel with her latest hit, while several other titles are truckin’ into the top ten. Let’s add ’em up:

“ME” TIME: The return of Demi Lovato has given us an emotional ballad in “Anyone” and the bold pop anthem “I Love Me”, this week’s top song on the adds report at Top 40 radio. It starts with 152 stations on impact, which compliments its haul of 27 stations at the Hot AC format yesterday, where it also ranked in first place. After debuting at #30 on the most recent published update, this tune is looking bound for the top ten, which would give the performer her highest-charting entry in more than two years here.

New releases by 5 Seconds Of Summer and Bryce Vine also managed to pull in some great adds this week. Both “Old Me” and “Baby Girl” tied for a second place finish with 33 stations during the session. The two singles should easily land in the top 50 in the next couple of weeks. Breland‘s recent viral song “My Truck” also drives into the top ten for the first time, placing seventh with 13 more stations coming in this week. This past Sunday, the tune officially parked in the top 50 at the Rhythmic radio format.

Charting songs from Doja Cat, Lady Gaga and Surfaces are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

The TikTok crowd has already gone wild for emerging songs from Benee and Sam Fischer, so we’ll see how they do next week at the format. Will anyone else join the impact party? Stay tuned.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (January 26, 2020)

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. Just ahead of the Grammy Awards, we have some new winners on the airwaves. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

ANOTHER FINE POST: With a difference of only nine spins between #1 and #2 this week, Post Malone‘s enduring hit “Circles” returns to the top of the Top 40 chart for a sixth nonconsecutive week. The smash also holds at #4 on the Hot AC chart. Will it score a seventh week at #1 in time for the Super Bowl? Better yet, will it ever leave the chart? We may never know. Actually, we will, but it will have to wait until next Sunday.

Four new songs enter the top 40 at the format this week, three by performers who are new to the chart. The group Brockhampton is one, up from 41-35 with “Sugar”. Roddy Ricch leaps from 49-38 with a cut that’s also flying through the top 20 on the Rhythmic and Urban charts, “The Box”. It continues to hold at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 list. Regard‘s “Ride It” also lifts from 47-39 on the pop radio chart, while Fifth Harmony member Ally Brooke earns her third solo top 40 entry with “No Good”, rising from 45-40.

Additionally, there are four new entries in the top 50 this week, along with a single re-entry that’s been outside the region for almost five months. Newcomer Chelsea Cutler starts things off at #43 with “Sad Tonight”, which impacted at the format last Tuesday. It’s also a good week for Selena Gomez, who enters at #44 with the title track from her recent album Rare. After last appearing at #45 on the chart dated September 1, Maren Morris is on the rebound with “The Bones”, stepping back in at #47. The track is currently in the top ten on the Country and Hot AC radio lists. Grammy nominee Lizzo‘s “Cuz I Love You” debuts at #49, while the Mustard and Roddy Ricch collaboration “Ballin'” sneaks in at #50 to close out this week’s activities. The latter hit went to #1 on the Rhythmic and Urban charts earlier this month.
