ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (September 14, 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: Ed Sheeran gave the Top 40 format the shivers with his Most Added hit. Let’s add ’em up:

KEEP YOUR ED UP: It was another super start on the Top 40 adds report for the second radio single from Ed Sheeran’s upcoming album =. With 149 stations in its first week, “Shivers” was easily the Most Added song at the Top 40 format, which follows a #36 debut on the chart over the weekend. The tune also dominated at the Hot AC radio format yesterday, securing a robust 57 adds there. “Bad Habits” holds in the top three on both charts.

Justin Bieber is off to a fairly nice start with his new single from the Justice album, which he recently performed on the MTV Video Music Awards. “Ghost” picked up 63 new stations this week and a second place finish. The track debuted at #49 on last Sunday’s published update and a larger jump is expected by this weekend. It also landed in fifth place at the Hot AC format with nine early adds yesterday.

With his recent #1 entry on the Billboard Hot 100, Drake settled into third place on the report with the Future and Young Thug-assisted “Way 2 Sexy”. It secured 48 adds during the session. It was also the Most Added song at the Rhythmic and Urban radio formats this week. A second week at #1 looks very likely for its parent album Certified Lover Boy.

Charting singles from Doja Cat, Tai Verdes and Walker Hayes 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 (June 20, 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. Everybody’s working for the weekend chart update, so let’s hit the list and check out what’s popping at the format:

DUA IT AGAIN: For the second week in a row, Dua Lipa lands at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart with “Levitating”, finishing a bit over 2,000 spins ahead of the song at #2. “Levitating” also leads the chart at the Hot AC format for a second week and remains active in the top ten at AC radio.

Tai Verdes has the only new song in the top 40 with “A-O-K”, leaping from 45-39. It’s his first top 40 hit at the format. The single entered at #30 on the Alternative radio chart last week due to a new music integration program, but falls out of the region on the current update.

A massive six new tunes enter the top 50 at the format, led by Tate McRae and Khalid with “Working” in the #43 spot. The collaboration is one of several impacting singles this coming Tuesday. Latin star Bad Bunny puts his new streaming hit onto the chart at #46, as “Yonaguni” (referring to a Japanese island) continues to build at radio in several major markets. Girl In Red starts at #47 with “Serotonin”, which holds at #7 on the Alternative radio chart. One of 2021’s top breakouts is in at #48 with her new entry: of course, Olivia Rodrigo with “Traitor”. A collaboration from T-Pain and Kehlani is next at #49: “I Like Dat”, which also likes being in the top 30 on the Rhythmic radio chart. Lastly, Area21 comes in at #50 with “La La La”, which returns DJ Martin Garrix to the pop chart. The track briefly made the top 40 at Alternative radio earlier this year.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 13, 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. Everyone is A-O-K to check out this week’s update, so here’s a look at what’s popping at the format:

LIPA LEVITATES: We have a tie! Two songs were logged at 17,513 spins by the final update, but Dua Lipa narrowly advanced from 2-1 on the chart with “Levitating”, flying ahead of Justin Bieber and his Daniel Caesar and GIVĒON-assisted “Peaches”. This is the fourth song to reach the summit for Lipa, three of which have come from her Future Nostalgia era.

TikTok star Bella Poarch has this week’s top new entry in the top 40 with “Build A Bitch”, which soars from 41-32. It’s her first song to land on the chart. With their respective fourth top 40 singles, Cheat Codes and Tinashe lean into the region with “Lean On Me”, up from 42-36. We also have the first chart song from Mooski, who recently led the Rhythmic and Urban radio charts with “Track Star”. This week, it jumps from 44-40 on the list.

Tai Verdes ranks with his first chart entry at #45 and that’s certainly “A-O-K” with him. It’s also on the move at the Alternative radio format this week, where it reaches the top 40. Calvin Harris and Tom Grennan debut at #47 with “By Your Side”, a collaboration that just hit the top 20 in the United Kingdom. Billie Eilish is also new to the survey at #48 with “Lost Cause”, a recent track from her forthcoming Happier Than Ever album.
