ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (July 14, 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: the trio of Kane Brown, Khalid and Swae Lee sway the pop panel and find themselves at the top of the adds report. Let’s add ’em up:

YES, HE KANE: With 85 adds in its opening week, “Be Like That” by Kane Brown, Khalid and Swae Lee easily takes the top spot. The big collaboration, which is already flying towards the top 40 at the format, also secured a half dozen adds at the Hot AC format on Monday’s update, two weeks ahead of its impact date there.

Look out for Blackbear‘s new single “Queen Of Broken Hearts”, which impacts at the end of July. This week, it’s starting out early with a total of 24 stations, good for a fourth place finish. It will easily reach the top 50 before its official adds date.

Another new song in the top ten is Avenue Beat‘s “F2020”, which ties for eighth place with 15 stations this week. After going viral on the video platform TikTok, the trio released a full version, which is reacting nicely at both digital retail and streaming.

Charting singles from Ava Max, Jack Harlow and Jackson Wang returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap, including music from Tate McRae and Zara Larsson.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (February 2, 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:

MAROONED AGAIN: With the song that’s now spent ten big weeks at #1 on the Hot AC chart, Maroon 5 scores their 11th #1 hit at the Top 40 format with “Memories”, climbing from 3-1. The multi-format hit rises about 790 spins week-to-week. For lead singer Adam Levine, the tune marks his 13th #1 on the chart, having reached the top as a featured artist on singles by Gym Class Heroes and R. City.

Four new releases enter the top 40 at the format this week, all by solo women, including one newcomer. Lizzo‘s “Cuz I Love You” is up from 49-30, earning the recent Grammy-winning performer her fourth top 40 hit at the format. Just behind her is Taylor Swift with “The Man”, which makes a high debut at #31. It’s also her 31st top 40 single here and the fourth from her current album Lover. Selena Gomez takes her 18th trip into the top 40 as a soloist with “Rare”, leaping from 44-37. It officially impacts at the format on Tuesday. Finally, first-timer Chelsea Cutler moves from 43-39 with “Sad Tonight”. The single is taken from her debut album How To Be Human, which was released a couple of weeks ago.

After a single swap from “Juicy”, which drops to #36 this week, Doja Cat meows back into the top 50 at #41 with “Say So”. It seems likely that it’ll reach the top 40 next weekend. The only other entry of note in the region comes from Hot Chelle Rae, who are back in the top 50 for the first time since the spring of 2014 with “I Hate LA”. It lands at #50.
