Chart Notes:

  • This week’s Highest Debut belongs to the fourth member of One Direction to hit my chart as a soloist. He’s Liam Payne, and he’s new at #37 with “Strip That Down”. The album version of this single features rapper Quavo of the trio Migos. The 23-year-old performer lands on the survey as Niall Horan‘s “Slow Hands” (#20) and Harry Styles‘s “Sign Of The Times” (#2) remain active, which could make for an interesting story later this summer. We’ll see how it goes. For now, Payne is off to a good start!
  • Katy Perry has this week’s other debut with “Swish Swish”, landing at #40. It’s the third radio single from her forthcoming album Witness, which you’ll witness in stores on June 9. The album version features rapper Nicki Minaj. This track comes about a month after “Bon Appétit” debuted, which stalled out at multiple formats following mixed research and tepid digital sales and streaming data. Will Perry’s new era get back on track? Stay tuned.
  • Next week, new radio songs from Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness and John Mayer, as well as a potential chart newcomer, Jasmine Thompson, should be among the stronger candidates in the running for a top 40 debut. However, as the number of big summer releases continues to grow, will anything pop up before the Memorial Day Weekend? Find out on Sunday!

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (May 16, 2017)

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: Miley Cyrus makes that musical move to “Malibu”, Childish Gambino returns to the pop playground and more! It’s just a few days before my five year college reunion, and I’m ready to celebrate the hits from this week’s graduating gems on the honor roll we call the Most Added list. Grab your caps and gowns… and a few adds too:

HIGHLY MILEY: After debuting at #37 on the published update last Sunday, Miley Cyrus easily claims this week’s Most Added song at the CHR format with “Malibu”. The track surfs in with 116 adds. Hole‘s “Malibu”, which was mentioned briefly in Sunday’s post, received 42 adds on impact (the second Most Added song that week, behind Alanis Morissette‘s “Unsent” with 95 adds) on its way to a peak of #35 in February 1999. While the state of California resides in a number of top 40 titles throughout the decades, the cities and towns located on the musical map of The Golden State include Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Los Angeles, Monterey, San Francisco, San José, Sausalito and Ventura. (Of course, Malibu brings that total up by one.) Look out for Cyrus’s next studio album later this year, which you can purchase in Malibu, or pretty much anywhere else in the world.

CHILDISH BEHAVIOR: The performer known as Childish Gambino has charted with two minor singles so far this decade: a top 50 entry called “Heartbeat” (#43, 3/4/12) and the top 40 entry “V. 3005″ (#38, 9/14-21 and 10/5/14). Needless to say, the pop panel and the performer don’t exactly have a relationship that’s hand in Glover; at least, not at this point. However, that isn’t going to stop the California artist from trying for his second top 40 single at the format with “Redbone”. The current #1 on the Urban AC chart, which also ranks in the top ten at Urban radio and top 15 at Rhythmic, impacts with 14 stations this week, which gives it a tied total for the 8th Most Added spot. We’ll see if the children drive Childish to his biggest pop hit yet this summer.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (TWELVE)
1. MILEY CYRUS, “Malibu” (RCA)
2-T. LUIS FONSI & DADDY YANKEE featuring JUSTIN BIEBER

Chart Notes:

  • Four new songs break into this week’s chart, led by Miley Cyrus‘s “Malibu” at #37. Cyrus’s single debuted on Thursday and climbed to #1 on iTunes, while also making a speedy entry on the pop radio chart thanks to hourly airplay from iHeartMedia stations on the afternoon of its release. Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie‘s “In My World” enters at #38; that marks the legendary Fleetwood Mac members’ first hit as a duo. At 73, McVie is now the oldest artist to ever appear on my list, besting 71-year-old Mike Love’s contribution to 2012’s “That’s Why God Made The Radio” (#28) by The Beach Boys.
  • Newcomer Tom Walker rolls into the #39 slot with “Just You And I”, which is featured on his recent EP release, Blessings. The Scottish singer/songwriter’s track heads to Hot AC radio in June, and then to Top 40 radio in July. Finally, entering this week at #40 is Skip Marley and his second top 40 single, “Calm Down”. You’ll recall that he’s featured on Katy Perry‘s #1 song “Chained To The Rhythm”, which recently spent four weeks atop my chart. (It drops to #11 this week.)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (May 9, 2017)

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: Niall Horan has a fast start with a “Slow” song, while several proven hits continue their dominance at the Top 40 format. Needless to say, I am all fired up, but not like the FBI director, so let’s examine the politics of pop in our weekly check of the Most Added songs from the CHR panel:

“HANDS” ACROSS AMERICA: Divided they stall, united we stan; “Hands” adds were felt across America this week. Now, a few of you out there are probably too young to remember that dud of a charity song that was bubbling under the pop chart this week in 1986, but Niall Horan‘s handy new single is far better, and definitely more successful. The Voice Of Ireland’s “Slow Hands” is this week’s Most Added song at CHR/Top 40 radio, pulling in 84 stations on impact. No, this is not a hot Pointer Sisters cover, but a very similarly-titled “Slow Hand” spent two weeks at #1 on Radio & Records in late July and early August of 1981. Horan’s previous solo single, “This Town”, peaked at #12 earlier this year. With Harry Styles and ZAYN currently in the top 40, Horan well on his way and a forthcoming single from Liam Payne also dropping soon, will four members of One Direction chart at the same time later this month? Ooh, the mind wonders… I’ll keep you updated!

“ONE” MORE TIME: As far as the rest of this week’s CHR report, just one single impacting at the format means that much of the top ten songs includes holdovers from last week. Justin Bieber pulls double duty once again, with DJ Khaled‘s “I’m The One” in the runner-up slot (after topping the report last week) and Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee‘s remix of “Despacito” rounding out the top three. Another three impacting songs from last week, by Charlie Puth, Hailee Steinfeld and Katy Perry featuring Migos, all remain in the top ten as well. Just wait for next week; I hear we’ll be taking a trip to “Malibu” with some old friends, and perhaps additional surprises in store…

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (ELEVEN)
1. NIALL HORAN, “Slow Hands” (Capitol)
2. DJ KHALED featuring JUSTIN BIEBER, QUAVO, CHANCE THE RAPPER and LIL WAYNE
, “I’m The One” (We The Best/Epic)
3. LUIS FONSI & DADDY YANKEE featuring JUSTIN BIEBER, “Despacito (Remix)” (UMLE/RBMG/Def Jam/Republic)
4. SHAWN MENDES, “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” (Island/Republic)
5. CHARLIE PUTH, “Attention” (Artist Partner/Atlantic)
6. HAILEE STEINFELD, “Most Girls” (Republic)
7. LADY GAGA, “The Cure” (Streamline/Interscope)
8. MARTIN GARRIX & DUA LIPA“Scared To Be Lonely” (RCA)
9. KATY PERRY featuring MIGOS, “Bon Appétit” (Capitol)
10-T. ED SHEERAN, “Castle On The Hill” (Atlantic)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 7, 2017)

Welcome to Radio Active, a weekly 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. Okay, I’ll admit it; there’s no shame in it now. Writing this post every weekend is only possible because I have a preexisting condition: I’m a chart geek. My social life is staring at my laptop and refreshing the Current Day charts. Truly, there’s no better way to get turnt up on a Saturday night. So, forget about the Ambient House and whatever they pass; the health of this week’s hits is safe with me in the sonic Senate that we call the Top 40 airplay chart:

“WHAT” GOES UP: Bruno Mars‘s “That’s What I Like” continues its reign at #1 on the CHR/Top 40 list, now in its second week at the top. Thanks to the long run for Ed Sheeran‘s “Shape Of You”, solo male artists have now led the chart for twelve consecutive weeks. However, that stretch will eventually come to an end, because all the current contenders for the top spot are collaborations. I think we’ll see a similar issue interrupting Mars’s Hot 100 run, again, due to another set of collaborations that you’ll bop to below. It should be noted that Mars’s current album, 24K Magic, has no duets or features on it. Sorry, Top 40 chart, we don’t need that many names listed in the top ten songs of the week. Sheesh. A third radio single from the project has yet to be announced.

On some additional radio charts this week, “That’s What I Like” comes in at #2 on the Hot AC chart, #3 at Rhythmic, #7 at Urban, #9 at Urban AC and #23 at AC. Yes, even those soccer moms like to shake it to this song too, and they’ll probably end up filmed on a cell phone and uploaded to YouTube. (That’s probably not the best Mother’s Day gift, just FYI.) Despite its loss of bullet at CHR radio in the last few days, it continues to gain elsewhere, making it a multi-format smash into the early summer.

A THREE FOR “ONE” SPECIAL: Believe it or not, DJ Khaled isn’t the only one screaming about his new single. “I’m The One”, which has dominated both sales and streaming platforms in the last week, moves from 34-19 on this week’s pop survey, making it the biggest mover in the countdown. The hit features Justin BieberQuavo, Chance The Rapper and Lil Wayne. The 41-year-old DJ, producer and yelling enthusiast has his highest-charting entry at the format in mere days, beating “For Free” (#25, 9/11/16) with featured guest Drake. Guess he can afford a few more major keys to some cars and homes! The cut is expected to appear on his new album Grateful, due sometime this year. (Yes, you can expect a mouthful about that release as well, so watch your Snapchat page.)

There are two other big movers to make note of this week: rising from 37-26, for a gain of eleven spots, is the other Bieber feature in this week’s top 40. The remix of “Despacito”, performed by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, continues to perform well worldwide. There’s no word on how busy Google Translate has been lately, but you won’t be seeing anyone named Rosetta giving you stone cold chart facts on this blog anytime soon. Also, climbing from 33-25 is another great summer single: “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” by Shawn Mendes. It takes a very similar jump (33-24) on this week’s Hot AC list. Something about those young Canadian guys… I guess “up north” is more like their stats than their birthplace. Anyways, these three singles will continue to heat up the charts during the coming months. Let’s just hope that the crazy roadblock in the top 20 that we’ve endured most of this year is nice to these men.

“GIRLS” JUST WANNA HAVE PUNS: Only two new tracks break into the top 50 this week, but one could be in some trouble if the not-so-tasty rumors are true. Katy Perry‘s “Bon Appétit”, a collaboration with Migos, devours the #39 slot. However, word on the street is that Perry’s label pulled the song due to its sluggish sales and mixed critical reaction. Sacrebleu! Well, in any case, this is the 22nd top 40 single for the purposeful pop star, even if the purpose of her latest charting song is just to have some filthy fun. You might really want to consider cancelling that order on cherry pies, though I’m good with a slice of apple or pecan. (Stay tuned for any updates regarding an official single status change through the blog or the PGTC socials.)

The only other debut this week is from 20-year-old singer and actress Hailee Steinfeld and “Most Girls”, coming in at #48. Unlike the girls, most CHR programmers haven’t added this single, so I wouldn’t aspire to be like them just yet. (It did rank as the fifth Most Added song at the format last week, however.) Steinfeld is looking for her fifth top 40 song here, and also appears on this week’s #18 hit, “At My Best” by Machine Gun Kelly. How will Steinfeld’s new single fare in the musical machine? Most prognosticators would urge you to stay tuned, and that’s some sound advice.

Chart Notes:

  • We’ve had a fair amount of songs spending one or two weeks at the top this year, and that means there’s a new song climbing into the #1 slot again this week. Up 2-1, that would be “Don’t Take The Money” by Bleachers. It’s Jack Antonoff’s second #1 with that act, having previously spent a week at the top in 2014 with “I Wanna Get Better”. However, he also spent a massive 18 career weeks at #1 with fun., who ranked with “We Are Young” (two weeks), “Some Nights” (eight weeks) and “Carry On” (eight weeks) between 2012 and 2013. It’s great to have him back at the top!
  • This week’s Highest Debut is by sisters Alana, Danielle and Este Haim, coming in at #36 with “Want You Back”. It is the first single from the group’s forthcoming album Something To Tell You, due July 7. The three siblings previously reached my top 40 in 2013 with “The Wire”, which peaked at #11 in early 2014. Their new single impacts at Alternative radio in a little under two weeks, and I’m hoping it does well this summer at the format!
  • At #37 is this week’s other debut, “Slow Hands” by Niall Horan. It’s the second solo top 40 song for the singer who first hit as a part of One Direction, and it follows “This Town”, which spent a week at #1. Horan’s debut makes it three members of that popular act who are currently in the countdown on their own, with Harry Styles (“Sign Of The Times”, #2) and ZAYN (“I Don’t Wanna Live Forever”, #27) also present.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (May 2, 2017)

Welcome to Add Lib, a new weekly 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: DJ Khaled is “One” to scream about this new collaboration, Katy Perry is hungry for a hot hit, Charlie Puth attracts some new believers and Hailee Steinfeld gets the “Most” out of her new single. It may be May, but you may proceed with viewing my recap of the top Top 40 singles getting that add coverage this Tuesday. Phew… that was a tongue-twister. Wrap your tongues (and ears) around these songs:

“ONE” ON ONE: Do you think that DJ Khaled identifies with the book/film Old Yeller? You know, at least the title of it? I think you’ll hear him loud and clear this week. His latest single, “I’m The One”, is the Most Added title at CHR/Top 40 radio. The track is new at 140 stations on impact, giving the 41-year-old performer his largest frame of adds at the format. While that total is notable, it falls just short of the PPW era record for his label, Epic: 157, established last March by Meghan Trainor‘s “No”, which reached #7. Justin Bieber, Quavo (of Migos, more below), Chance The Rapper and Lil Wayne all appear on the song, and Bieber is a huge part of why the single is a success out of the gate, as it competes with another single (a remix of “Despacito”, see below) that he features on. So, if you don’t like DJ Khaled or Justin Bieber, I would suggest staying away from your local pop outlet on the dial this summer. Hey, there’s always the jazz station…

LIFE GOES “BON”: What’s the recipe for a radio record? Katy Perry should know the answer to that; she’s been ranking at the format for almost nine years now. Her latest release, “Bon Appétit”, has a tasty turnout from the Top 40 panel, but second place is all that it’ll be serving this week. C’est la vie, kids. A total of 54 stations on the panel give it an add on impact. The track includes the latest struggle vocal rent-a-rappers, trio Migos, who have seemingly replaced Ty Dolla $ign‘s pointless features on a number of pop hits. (Seriously, kids, it’s 2017. Can we not write a proper middle eight?) Anyways, I shouldn’t be totally shady on this one, due to the fact that an edit without them is available to programmers. Anyways, I hope she has a perry good summer with this song. It’s a fun one. (Don’t go overboard on the cherry pie. There’s always the Warrant song.)

THE MOMENT OF PUTH: Singer and songwriter Charlie Puth proves he’s a chart survivor with a karate pop chop, making it on the Most Added report again with “Attention”. Upon impact, it’s new at 43 pop stations, landing it the third Most Added spot. It was recently promoted through an exhibit called The Attention Room in Los Angeles, which gave his fans the chance to step into an LED infinity tunnel that displays the brain’s reaction to receiving attention, while his song plays in the background. In other words, “Ooh! Look at the colors! Wait, who’s singing this song?” “Attention” is expected on his sophomore album, due sometime later this year. However, paying attention to my endless Survivor marathons on Spotify is optional. I can still bop to “Poor Man’s Son” and “American Heartbeat”, thank you very much.

DOING THE “MOST”: If you’re at or around my age, you know that when it comes to pop singles called “Most Girls”, we’re used to thinking that those girls want a man with the bling-bling, etc. It’s only natural, because we all love a great P!nk jam. Well, singer and actress Hailee Steinfeld is out to change that with her latest single, which grabs the fifth Most Added slot this week, starting out at 33 stations. The female empowerment anthem follows the Grey and Zedd-assisted “Starving”, which slowly reached a peak of #5 for three weeks earlier this year. Most girls are probably rooting for this one, and we’ll see how it does over the summer. The competition is pretty tough out there…

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. DJ KHALED featuring JUSTIN BIEBER, QUAVO, CHANCE THE RAPPER and LIL WAYNE, “I’m The One” (We The Best/Epic)
2. KATY PERRY featuring MIGOS
, “Bon Appétit” (Capitol)
