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.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 31, 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. Writing about music and radio charts at the moment is a bit strange, but for petition and donation resources in the fight against racial inequality in our country, please go to this website and do what you can. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

FOUR ALL THE YOUNG CATS: Doja Cat‘s “Say So” holds at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for the fourth week. The big hit stays at #5 on this week’s chart at the Rhythmic format and moves from 14-12 on the Hot AC chart.

Four songs reach the top 40 on the chart this week, led by Doja Cat’s new single, the Gucci Mane-assisted “Like That”. It moves up from 45-35, becoming the pair’s third and fifth top 40 entries on the chart, respectively. One notch below, “Rockstar” from DaBaby and Roddy Ricch rocks up from 46-36: the single stars as their third and second top 40 entries to date, respectively. Katy Perry‘s “Daisies” blossoms from 43-39, marking the performer’s 29th top 40 hit at the format since 2008. Finally, rising from 42-40, “Don’t Rush” lands Young T & Bugsey and featured performer Headie One their first top 40 song on the pop airwaves.

Another collaboration, this one coming from the Black Eyed Peas, Ozuna and J. Rey Soul, leads off this week’s top 50 entries at #45. “Mamacita” is the follow-up to the group’s J Balvin-assisted “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)”, which holds at #8. At #47, Gabby Barrett debuts with “I Hope”, her recent #1 track on the Country radio chart. Newcomers Surf Mesa and Emilee land at #48 this week with “ILY (I Love You Baby)”, a partial remake of a 1967 classic that was originally a smash for Frankie Valli, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”. The song that soared from Netflix’s To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, Ashe‘s “Moral Of The Story”, enters at #49 this week. Last but not least, Roddy Ricch appears again on the Mustard-assisted “High Fashion”, which struts its stuff at #50.

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.

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: Justin Timberlake! SZA! Lady Gaga! Huge totals! After a crazy night, it’s time to recap it all. The votes have been cast, so let’s add ’em up:

THE OTHER SIDE OF LOVE: After a slightly delayed ending to the session tonight, both “Stupid Love” by Lady Gaga and “The Other Side” by SZA x Justin Timberlake are tied for the Most Added song at the Top 40 format, earning 178 stations each. The pair of surging singles cracked the top 30 on last Sunday’s published update and are headed for higher peaks this coming weekend. Not bad for a Super Tuesday…

The emerging duo Surfaces also managed to rank well with their first song to impact here, “Sunday Best”. It started in third place with 31 stations this week. The tune, which found a second life from TikTok recently, looks bound for the top 50 by the weekend.

Charting songs from Doja Cat, Lauv and Roddy Ricch are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

The new tracks from 5 Seconds Of Summer and Demi Lovato are likely to lead the way on next Tuesday’s adds report, though quite a few additional titles are also on the schedule.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1-T. LADY GAGA, “Stupid Love” (Interscope)
1-T. SZA x JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, “The Other Side” (RCA)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (February 25, 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: Top 40 radio is still lonely for Lauv, who is looking top 40 bound with his latest single. Get in your feels and let’s add ’em up:

WHEN LAUV TAKES OVER: Blasting in with the follow-up to the Anne-Marie collaboration “F**k, I’m Lonely”, which got as high as #30 on the Top 40 chart last November and December, Lauv’s “Modern Loneliness” leads the adds update with 36 stations on impact. Though its first-week total is smaller than normal, an independent release taking the top spot is still very impressive. At this point, the song should easily find its way into the top 50 by the weekend, just ahead of the launch for his new album ~How I’m Feeling~ on March 6.

Much like with Lauv’s newest release, this week’s numbers for impacting tracks are generally lower, though a pair of collaborations led by Diplo and Meduza finish the day in the top ten with ties for second and seventh place, respectively.

Charting songs from Doja Cat, Khalid and Roddy Ricch are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

A battle is brewing for next week’s adds report, as both Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga‘s new singles fight for the top spot.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. LAUV, “Modern Loneliness” (AWAL/in2une)
2-T. DIPLO featuring MORGAN WALLEN & JULIA MICHAELS, “Heartless” (Columbia)
2-T. DOJA CAT, “Say So” (Kemosabe/RCA)
4. RODDY RICCH, “The Box” (Atlantic)
5. BLACK EYED PEAS x J BALVIN, “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)” (Epic)
6. MONSTA X, “You Can’t Hold My Heart” (Epic)
7-T. KHALID x DISCLOSURE, “Know Your Worth” (RCA)
7-T. MEDUZA, BECKY HILL & GOODBOYS, “Lose Control” (Astralwerks/Capitol)
9. TREVOR DANIEL, “Falling” (Alamo/Interscope)
10. JUSTIN BIEBER featuring QUAVO, “Intentions” (Def Jam)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (February 11, 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: Justin Bieber grabs the top spot once again with intention, as new titles fill the top ten from top to bottom. What bops are, well, bopping this week? Let’s add ’em up:

JUSTIN TIME FOR SECONDS: Just ahead of the release of his new album Changes, Bieber’s “Intentions” leads the way at Top 40 radio this week with 130 stations on impact. The album version of the track features Quavo, though an edit without him is also available for stations. The single also leads the reports at both the Hot AC (33 stations) and Rhythmic (34 stations) radio formats.

Niall Horan ties for the runner-up spot on the report with 65 adds for “No Judgement”, the latest radio single from his upcoming set Heartbreak Weather, due March 13. The track also finished in third place on yesterday’s Hot AC log with 17 adds. “No” is likely to chart at both formats by the weekend. Following Horan’s new entry, impacting songs from Madison Beer (#5), Ali Gatie (#7) and DaBaby (#9) are all making some noise on the report and should be top 50 bound in the next week or so. Of the three, Beer is in the lead for prior top 40 songs with two, while DaBaby has one as a featured artist and Gatie has never reached the region.

Charting songs from Doja Cat, Lizzo and Selena Gomez are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

No songs are currently scheduled to impact at the format next week; we’ll see if this changes in the next few days.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. JUSTIN BIEBER, “Intentions” (Def Jam)
2-T. KHALID x DISCLOSURE, “Know Your Worth” (RCA)
2-T. NIALL HORAN, “No Judgement” (Capitol)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (February 4, 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: Khalid and Selena Gomez know their worth at Top 40 radio, but which performed ended up in that rare and coveted top position on the report? Let’s add ’em up:

“KNOW” YOUR ADDS: After sneaking in a midday premiere and wide support from the panel, “Know Your Worth” by Khalid x Disclosure is this week’s Most Added song at the Top 40 format, ending the day with a total of 60 stations. The track only earned a handful of adds at the Rhythmic format on the latest list, though it did not impact there today. Expect “Know” to easily chart this weekend on the regular published update.

Of course, this means Selena Gomez‘s “Rare” ended the day in second place, but only by one add: 59 more stations came in for it this week. The title cut from her latest album is already flying up the Top 40 chart, making its top 40 debut this past weekend.

The latest single from Meghan Trainor, the Nicki Minaj-assisted “Nice To Meet Ya”, also managed to place in the top five titles this week. It earned 40 stations on impact, earning it a fourth place rank. The collaboration is featured on her album Treat Myself, which was released last Friday. It also placed in fourth on the Hot AC report yesterday, picking up 14 stations there.

Charting songs from Doja Cat, Taylor Swift and The Weeknd are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

Next week, emerging songs from Ali Gatie, DaBaby and Madison Beer all aim to be da Most Added song of the week. Who will take the crown? Find out next Tuesday, baby.
