ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (November 30, 2021)

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: Adele opens her bottle of bops for a refreshing record at the top. Let’s add ’em up:

“OH” SAY, CAN YOU STREAM: With her follow-up to “Easy On Me”, superstar Adele took the top spot on the adds report with “Oh My God”, securing 105 stations at the Top 40 format this week. The song ranked at #38 on the chart last weekend, becoming her 11th top 40 hit to date. Her recent album 30 is expected to hold atop the Billboard 200 chart for a second week.

Back in the runner-up spot, Taylor Swift picked up another 43 stations for “Message In A Bottle” this week. The single from Red (Taylor’s Version) has been joined by a handful of other songs from the album at the format, including a re-recording of “All Too Well”, which led the Billboard Hot 100 earlier this month.

A week ahead of impact, “Abcdefu” scored 35 new stations at the format, giving newcomer GAYLE her first top five appearance on the adds report in the #3 position. The recent viral hit has become a global streaming smash and should do well at several radio formats into 2022.

Charting singles from ACRAZE, Benson Boone and Billie Eilish returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next week for another action-packed adds session.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (October 31, 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. For a thriller of a Halloween hit parade, here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

STAYING SPOOKY: This Halloween, The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber spend a ninth frightful yet fun week at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart with “Stay”. It remains the longest-running #1 hit at the format for 2021. Will it creep into double digits for a tenth big week at the top? Stay tuned for next weekend’s update.

“Better Days”, the recent viral collaboration from NEIKED, Mae Muller and Polo G, enters way up at #28 this week. It marks the first top 40 hit at the format for NEIKED and Muller and the second for Polo G, who scored his first entry this past summer with “Rapstar”. Up 41-37, Jesy Nelson is in with her Nicki Minaj-assisted “Boyz”. It’s the first solo top 40 single for the former Little Mix member and the 40th for Minaj. Meanwhile, “Moth To A Flame” bows at #40 for Swedish House Mafia and The Weeknd. The song is their fourth and 21st top 40 entries, respectively, and becomes the second charting title from the trio’s upcoming album Paradise Again.

In the top 50, Oliver Tree plants his roots at #48 with “Life Goes On”, another recent song to break on TikTok. He has previously charted at the Alternative radio format, but never on the Top 40 survey.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (August 8, 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. For the songs that will (hopefully) last a lifetime, here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

THREE “GOOD” WEEKS: For the third consecutive week, Olivia Rodrigo remains at #1 on the Top 40 chart with “Good 4 U”, while her prior single “Déjà Vu” advances from 3-2. Rodrigo isn’t the first performer to hold down the top two positions at the format, though this kind of achievement is fairly rare so early into an artist’s charting days. You can expect her to hold down the #1 and #2 spots again next week. Will it be in the same order? Stay tuned.

Another five new songs enter the top 40 this week, with Silk Sonic coming in the highest with “Skate”. The song glides from 46-27, marking the second top 40 song at the format for the duo and Anderson .Paak, as well as the 23rd for Bruno Mars. Entering way up at #29, “Take My Breath” is the 19th top 40 hit for The Weeknd, whose new single is also starting out well at the Hot AC and Rhythmic radio formats. Up from 42-37, Dixie (who charted a year ago as Dixie D’Amelio) is in with the Rubi Rose-assisted “Psycho”. It’s the second top 40 entry for the former and the first for latter. Lifting from 41-39, Alessia Cara returns with “Sweet Dream”, now her 11th top 40 hit to date. Finally, the new Swedish House Mafia, Ty Dolla $ign and 070 Shake collaboration moves from 45-40. “Lifetime” is the third top 40 hit for the trio (and first since 2013), the eighth for $ign and the first for Shake.

YouTube personality turned singer Conan Gray debuts at #42 with “People Watching”, as Elle King and Miranda Lambert enter at #46 with “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)”, a collaboration that’s also currently charting at the Country and Hot AC radio formats. Khalid comes in at #49 with “New Normal”, while Big Red Machine and Taylor Swift barely sneak in at #50 with “Renegade”.
