RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (August 1, 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. Put on your skates and glide into what’s popping this week:

FOR THE “GOOD” TIMES: Up over 200 spins for the week, pop star Olivia Rodrigo stays at #1 on the Top 40 chart for the second week with “Good 4 U”, taken from the album Sour. This is her seventh total week at the summit on the pop airwaves in 2021.

Five new titles enter both the top 40 and the top 50 this week, with Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow‘s “Industry Baby” leading the way. Landing at #32, the collaboration marks their fifth and second top 40 singles at the format, respectively. Italian breakouts Måneskin are up from 44-34 on the Top 40 radio chart with their cover of “Beggin’”, becoming their first U.S. pop hit. Bazzi scores his first top 40 entry in more than a year with “I Like That”, his fifth time on the survey, which lands at #35. Twenty One Pilots rise from 45-37 on the list with “Saturday”, now a five hit on the Alternative radio chart and the duo’s eighth top 40 single to date at the Top 40 format. Finally, Tesher moves from 42-39 on the chart with the Jason Derulo-assisted “Jalebi Baby”, becoming their first and 24th entries in the region, respectively.

TikTok personality Dixie D’Amelio has a debut at #42 with her labelmate Rubi Rose-assisted “Psycho”, while the Swedish House Mafia, Ty Dolla $ign and 070 Shake collaboration “Lifetime” starts its chart life at #45. A notch lower, Silk Sonic has a silky smooth entrance at #46 with “Skate”, the new single from their upcoming album An Evening With Silk Sonic. Next, format newcomer SEB reaches the “Seaside” and the top 50 on the pop chart with his viral demo recording, which comes in at #49. Finally, Masked Wolf slides in at #50 with “Say So”.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 27, 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. Let’s uncover the habits of hit songs and see what’s popping at the format this weekend:

LEAPIN’ WITH LIPA: For the third and final week, Dua Lipa holds at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart with “Levitating”. The smash drops to #2 at the Hot AC radio format. However, Lipa is making some leaps with “Love Again”, the next single from her Future Nostalgia album. The tune officially hits the pop airwaves following the holiday weekend for Independence Day, but due to its recent action just below the top 50, it could be charting as soon as next weekend.

Tate McRae and Khalid are “Working” for the weekend, as their collaboration makes a massive jump from 43-24 on the chart. It’s the third top 40 hit at the format for McRae and the 12th for Khalid. Right behind them, Ed Sheeran blasts in at #25 with “Bad Habits”, becoming his 22nd chart hit. The song also enters the Hot AC radio chart within the same region, landing at #23 after just two days of airplay.

From her recent album Planet Her, which is looking at a top three entry on the Billboard 200 chart, Doja Cat is in at #41 with “You Right”, a collaboration with The Weeknd. The tune is also picking up significant early airplay at the Rhythmic and Urban radio formats. Coming in at #44, Tones And I is back on the survey with “Cloudy Day”, the new single from her Welcome To The Madhouse album. The forecast calls for a sunny chart run ahead of the project, which comes out in three weeks. Finally, if you’re looking for a little dessert to finish our musical meal, “Jalebi Baby” enters at #47 for newcomer Tesher and chart mainstay Jason Derulo. The single (in its original form) recently experienced a tasty viral moment on TikTok.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 15, 2021)
