ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 18, 2019)

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: Taylor Swift gets “Down” with the Top 40 crowd once more, blasting up to the top spot on the Tuesday report. Take a deep breath in and out and let’s add ’em up:

“YOU”-NITED AS ONE: After the Brendon Urie-assisted “ME!” cleared the entire panel in one week back in late April, it’s no surprise to see Taylor Swift picking up another giant total for the follow-up single, “You Need To Calm Down”. This tune earns 129 stations in its first week, which falls below the 183 for “ME!”, but is still quite significant. Both songs can be found on Lover, which hits stores on August 23. “You” squeaked into the top 40 on last Sunday’s update and should be well into the top 30 by the next list to be published. It also led the adds report at Hot AC radio yesterday, scoring 42 stations in total.

Swift’s current single lands well ahead of the other impacting records in the region, including songs by LIVVIATove Lo and We Three, though all three acts managed to successfully place their songs in the top ten. (More results are below.)

Next week, Ava Max (who already appears in this week’s top ten) leads a pack of at least five impacting songs, which also includes the latest releases from Cyn, MKTO and more. Curious about who will land on top? So am I! Check back next Tuesday!

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. TAYLOR SWIFT, “You Need To Calm Down” (Republic)
2-T. LIZZO, “Truth Hurts” (Atlantic)
2-T. TOVE LO, “Glad He’s Gone” (Island/Republic)
4. LEWIS CAPALDI, “Someone You Loved” (Capitol)
5. MARK RONSON featuring CAMILA CABELLO, “Find U Again” (RCA)
6. MILEY CYRUS, “Mother’s Daughter” (RCA)
7-T. AVA MAX, “So Am I” (APG/Atlantic)
7-T. LIVVIA, “Dizzy” (12Tone Music)
7-T. THE CHAINSMOKERS featuring BEBE REXHA, “Call You Mine” (Disruptor/Columbia)
10. WE THREE, “Lifeline” (Palawan/JMA)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 11, 2019)

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 adds to the Top 40 family during a slower week on the adds report. Let’s add ’em up:

SHE IS COMING… TO POP RADIO: Cyrus’s “Mother’s Daughter”, from her EP titled She Is Coming, grabs 49 stations during its impact week and the freedom to become the Most Added song at the Top 40 format this Tuesday. That total is much lower than some of the triple digit finishes we’ve seen in recent weeks, though the cut is still its on way towards the top 50 for the official chart on Sunday. The full EP registered a top ten debut on the most recent update of the Billboard 200 list.

Much of the rest of the top ten is filled with familiar names, including Ally Brooke and Lizzo, though individual adds totals for a lot of songs trailed off beyond the top five. For instance, six songs tied for tenth place with a meager seven adds, which is fairly low for that position. Alas, these kinds of weeks occasionally happen…

Next week, impacting releases from LIVVIA and Tove Lo, as well as the current Alternative chart single from Illenium and Jon Bellion, join the pop parade.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP FIVE
1. MILEY CYRUS, “Mother’s Daughter” (RCA)
2. LIZZO, “Truth Hurts” (Atlantic)
3. THE CHAINSMOKERS featuring BEBE REXHA, “Call You Mine” (Disruptor/Columbia)
4. MARK RONSON featuring CAMILA CABELLO, “Find U Again” (RCA)
5. ALLY BROOKE featuring A BOOGIE WIT DA HOODIE, “Lips Don’t Lie” (Latium/Atlantic)

(The full list should be back next week, provided that the adds totals at the bottom of the top ten are back to normal.)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 9, 2019)

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. Happiness fills the air at the format, but the feeling may not be as strong by next week. Let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

SUCK THIS SIX PACK: With their new album Happiness Begins headed towards the top of the Billboard 200, “Sucker” from the Jonas Brothers remains at #1 for the sixth nonconsecutive week on the Top 40 list, while their follow-up single “Cool” is up a spot to #13. Ironically, the three guys will likely be kicked out of the top spot again on next week’s chart by the performer that they name-check in “Cool”, as Post Malone‘s “Wow” (up 3-2 this week) appears ready to lead the list after five months in the top 40. (This run isn’t long enough to wow the chart geeks of the world, as it doesn’t break any records, but it’s still a slow one.)

After weeks upon weeks of bigger releases, the top 40 is finally returning to normal this week, with a number of singles climbing six, seven and eight positions following that volatile period. However, we also have three new tracks making it into the top 40, led by the collaboration “Call You Mine” by The Chainsmokers and Bebe Rexha at #35. This hit marks the twelfth top 40 entry for the duo and the 15th for Rexha. SHAED and Lewis Capaldi also earn their first top 40 tunes at the format this week: the trio is in with the recent #1 Alternative radio hit “Trampoline”, up 42-38, while Capaldi’s former U.K. chart-topper “Someone You Loved” climbs from 44-40.

Joining the top 50 this week, “Find U Again” by Mark Ronson and Camila Cabello finds a way into the #41 spot. This single also makes its debut on the Hot AC chart this Sunday, landing at #45. It should easily enter the top 40 at both formats next week. New at #47 on the survey, we also find Cabello’s former bandmate from the group Fifth Harmony: of course, that’s Ally Brooke with the A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie-assisted “Lips Don’t Lie”. It’s her second chart song as a solo artist. Finally, at #49, is a newcomer that’s had plenty of top 40 action as a songwriter: she co-wrote Halsey‘s track “Without Me”, a #1 hit for four weeks from earlier this year. Now, Delacey is in with “My Man”. Her forthcoming EP is due later this year.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (June 4, 2019)

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: it’s a Perry pop party, as Katy Perry‘s latest single blasts to the top of the list and leads a top three full of hot impacting titles. Let’s add ’em up:

A “REALLY” GOOD START: Just ten stations away from clearing the whole panel, Katy Perry easily earns the Most Added title on this week’s Top 40 report with “Never Really Over”, securing 173 stations on impact. This total is one station less than her Skip Marley-assisted “Chained To The Rhythm” earned in its first week back in February 2017, which spent two weeks at #8 that April before quickly crashing off the survey after 14 total weeks. “Never” made its debut in the top 30 last Sunday and should easily blast into the top 20 by the weekend.

Two collaborations nearly tied for second place, but “Call You Mine” from The Chainsmokers featuring Bebe Rexha earned 66 stations in the session, just one add ahead of third place entry “Find U Again” from Mark Ronson and Camila Cabello. Both of these songs will easily score notable debuts on Sunday night’s update: “Call” has the edge for a move into the top 40 at this point.

Elsewhere in the top ten, you’ll find more music from 5 Seconds Of Summer, Ally Brooke, Lizzo, SHAED and others.

Next week, Russ‘s “Civil War” battles for a spot in the top ten, but more warriors await him on the battlefield. Stay tuned!

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. KATY PERRY, “Never Really Over” (Capitol)
2. THE CHAINSMOKERS featuring BEBE REXHA, “Call You Mine” (Disruptor/Columbia)
3. MARK RONSON featuring CAMILA CABELLO, “Find U Again” (RCA)
4. ED SHEERAN featuring CHANCE THE RAPPER and PNB ROCK, “Cross Me” (Atlantic)
5. LIZZO, “Truth Hurts” (Atlantic)
6. ALLY BROOKE featuring A BOOGIE WIT DA HOODIE, “Lips Don’t Lie” (Latium/Atlantic)
7. 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Easier” (Interscope)
8. DJ KHALED featuring SZA, “Just Us” (We The Best/Epic)
9. SHAED, “Trampoline” (Photo Finish/Caroline)
10. BILLIE EILISH, “Bad Guy” (Darkroom/Interscope)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (March 5, 2019)

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: Brothers, can you spare a hit? The return of the Jonas Brothers has the pop world shook, as plenty of other new records reach the lower rungs of the top ten. Let’s add ’em up:

BROTHERS IN CHARMS: Welcome back, Jonas Brothers! The group’s first single since 2013, “Sucker”, received a massive 153 adds on impact, easily securing the top spot on this week’s adds report at the format. This is trio’s biggest one-week total to date. It should be a quick ride up the chart for the guys, whose release stormed into the top 30 after just two days of airplay. Their highest-charting tune to date on the Top 40 chart, “Burnin’ Up”, spent two weeks at #12 in August 2008. Will their seventh top 40 entry be the one that finally enters the top ten? Stay tuned, suckers!

With his follow-up to “Girls”, which peaked at #38 a few months back, AJ Mitchell lands in fifth place this week with a total of 23 stations for “All My Friends”. Following just behind him with one fewer station, Galantis and OneRepublic are in sixth place, as “Bones” shows some strength with the panel. Look for both songs to reach the top 50 in the next week or two.

Next week, look for the Benny Blanco collaboration “I Can’t Get Enough”, which features Tainy, Selena Gomez and J Balvin, to rule the report. (It just missed the top ten this week.) Also on the schedule: cool new songs from Andy Grammer, James Bay featuring Julia Michaels and Lauv with Troye Sivan.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (ELEVEN)
1. JONAS BROTHERS, “Sucker” (Republic)
2. THE CHAINSMOKERS featuring 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Who Do You Love” (Disruptor/Columbia)
3. BEBE REXHA, “Last Hurrah” (Warner Bros.)
4. LIL PEEP & ILOVEMAKONNEN featuring FALL OUT BOY, “I’ve Been Waiting” (Columbia)
5. AJ MITCHELL, “All My Friends” (Epic)
6. GALANTIS featuring ONEREPUBLIC, “Bones” (Big Beat/EMG)
7. BILLIE EILISH, “When The Party’s Over” (Darkroom/Interscope)
8-T. PANIC! AT THE DISCO, “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” (Fueled By Ramen/EMG)
8-T. ZEDD & KATY PERRY, “365” (Interscope-Capitol)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (February 26, 2019)

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: Billie Eilish starts a brand new “Party” on the Top 40 airwaves, with the results of a split week at the format playing out all over the top ten. Let’s add ’em up:

BILLIE, DO BE A HERO: With four particularly strong releases impacting at the format this Tuesday, the panel was all over the place by the end of the day. Taking over the top spot, Eilish’s “When The Party’s Over” led the pop party with 42 stations during its biggest session to date. The performer’s “Bury A Friend” also leads the adds report at the Alternative format for the third week in a row, where the song is now approaching the top 20. Just behind her in second place, the cut “What A Time” pairs Julia Michaels with Niall Horan, both enjoying their time on the list with 37 stations today. The single can be found on Michaels’s new EP Inner Monologue, Pt. 1, which also features a collaboration with Selena Gomez. Michaels also sings on the latest single by James Bay titled “Peer Pressure”, which led the adds report at Triple A radio (and finished in the top five at the Hot AC format) yesterday.

Additional top ten action on future hits from H.E.R. and Panic! At The Disco, earning 30 and 26 adds, respectively, could push both songs into the top 40 in the coming weeks.

With over 20 stations coming in early, P!nk‘s “Walk Me Home” should lead next week’s report with a solid total, though singles by Galantis (“Bones”) and NOTD (“So Close”) will also be in the mix and looking to take home the pop prize.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. BILLIE EILISH, “When The Party’s Over” (Darkroom/Interscope)
2. JULIA MICHAELS featuring NIALL HORAN, “What A Time” (Republic)
3-T. CARDI B & BRUNO MARS, “Please Me” (Atlantic)
3-T. H.E.R., “Hard Place” (RCA)
5. THE CHAINSMOKERS featuring 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Who Do You Love” (Disruptor/Columbia)
6. ZEDD & KATY PERRY, “365” (Interscope-Capitol)
7. PANIC! AT THE DISCO, “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” (Fueled By Ramen/EMG)
8-T. LIL PEEP & ILOVEMAKONNEN featuring FALL OUT BOY, “I’ve Been Waiting” (Columbia)
8-T. MABEL, “Don’t Call Me Up” (Capitol)
10. ARIANA GRANDE, “break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored” (Republic)
