RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 17, 2020)

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. Ahead of a competitive adds session for this coming Tuesday and the upcoming Memorial Day weekend, here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

CAT’S ON THE PROWL: Doja Cat spends a second week at #1 on the Top 40 chart with “Say So”. Look for the follow-up single, the Gucci Mane-assisted “Like That”, to impact at the format this week after some early action on last Tuesday’s adds report.

Lil Mosey rises from 41-36 with his first top 40 entry at the format, “Blueberry Faygo”. The song samples Johnny Gill‘s “My, My, My”, which reached #14 on the CHR radio chart in September 1990. The eponymous first song from The Scotts, the duo of Travis Scott and Kid Cudi, also moves from 44-40 to give the two men their first top 40 hit as a duo.

The Jonas Brothers are new at #45 with “X”, one of two songs the guys released on Friday. The song features labelmate Karol G, whose Nicki Minaj-assisted “Tusa” landed in the top 50 earlier this year. Starting at #48, the TikTok-fueled “Don’t Rush” becomes the first charting song for the duo Young T & Bugsey and rapper Headie One. One further collaboration lands at #50: “Suda” by newcomer Melanie Pfirrman, whose song features Pitbull and his DJ IAmChino.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (May 12, 2020)

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: Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber get stuck at the top of the report by a pretty large margin, so stick around and let’s add ’em up:

THE POP U-NIVERSE: ‘Tis a great time to be charitable! The new charity tune from Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber picked up a super 163 stations on impact, easily making it this week’s Most Added song at the format. “Stuck With U” also topped the Hot AC report yesterday with another 65 adds there and claimed a third place finish at the Rhythmic format, checking in with 20 stations.

No additional impacting tracks landed in the top five, but Lil Mosey‘s “Blueberry Faygo”, which heads for adds next Tuesday, tied for third place with 23 new stations this week. Another track that’s bound to hold up a week from today is the new single by Harry Styles, as “Watermelon Sugar” landed in fifth with another 18 adds this week. Gee, this Top 40 fruit salad is tasty so far, but we do need some grapes and mangos and pineapples to fill it out, you know? Get to work, songwriters!

Charting singles from Marshmello & Halsey and Megan Thee Stallion return to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap, including data on new singles from the Jonas Brothers and Madison Beer.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (May 5, 2020)

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: Marshmello and Halsey‘s new collaboration dominates the adds report with some kindness for the pop radio panel. Let’s add ’em up:

THAT “KIND” OF A WEEK: With an impressive 130 stations on impact, “Be Kind” by Marshmello and Halsey earns the week’s Most Added title at the Top 40 format. The song also scored a top ten rank on yesterday’s report at the Hot AC format. After a #40 debut on last Sunday’s published chart, “Kind” should make a nice move up the survey by the weekend and will likely appear in the top ten again on next Tuesday’s log.

A handful of newer releases also entered the top ten this week, but with add totals that weren’t nearly as substantial. The highest of those, Cyn‘s “Drinks”, managed a fourth place finish with 19 stations on impact. It’s her second track to impact here: “Holy Roller” was the first about a year ago, though it didn’t crack the top 50.

Charting singles from Megan Thee Stallion and Twenty One Pilots return to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap, including data on the new release from Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (ELEVEN)
1. MARSHMELLO & HALSEY, “Be Kind” (Astralwerks/Capitol)
2-T. MEGAN THEE STALLION, “Savage” (1501 Certified Ent./300 Ent.)
2-T. THE SCOTTS, “The Scotts” (Epic)
4. CYN, “Drinks” (Unsub/Caroline)
5. SAINT JHN, “Roses” (Godd Complexx/HITCO)
6. SAM SMITH & DEMI LOVATO, “I’m Ready” (Capitol)
7. TWENTY ONE PILOTS, “Level Of Concern” (Fueled By Ramen/EMG)
8-T. ASHE, “Moral Of The Story” (Mom+Pop/Further.)
8-T. POWFU featuring BEABADOOBEE, “Coffee For Your Head (Death Bed)” (Robots & Humans/Columbia)
10-T. AJR, “Bang!” (S-Curve/Hollywood)
10-T. JAYMES YOUNG, “Happiest Year” (Please Rewind/Atlantic/EMG)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (April 28, 2020)

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: in a very divided week at this format, Sam Smith and Demi Lovato are more than ready for a second week atop the adds report. Who else qualified for a medal? Let’s add ’em up:

“READY” FOR MORE: For the second week in a row, Smith and Lovato’s hit collaboration “I’m Ready” took the top prize on the adds report with 36 more stations in its second week. SAINt JHN‘s “Roses” followed closely in second place with 24 adds here.

There were a number of impacting releases this week, but no one song dominated on the log, likely due in part to a smaller number of stations actually reporting adds. The highest of them, Alec Benjamin‘s “Oh My God”, tied for third place with 20 stations. This will likely become his second charting song at the format, with “Let Me Down Slowly” spending two weeks at #50 last March. More new titles that entered to the top ten are below, including tunes from AJR, Fitz And The Tantrums and The Scotts.

Charting singles from Maren Morris, Powfu and Twenty One Pilots return to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap. Stay safe out there.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (THIRTEEN)
1. SAM SMITH & DEMI LOVATO, “I’m Ready” (Capitol)
2. SAINT JHN, “Roses” (Godd Complexx/HITCO)

3-T. MEGAN THEE STALLION, “Savage” (1501 Certified Ent./300 Ent.)
5. POWFU featuring BEABADOOBEE, “Coffee For Your Head (Death Bed)” (Robots & Humans/Columbia)
6-T. AJR, “Bang!” (S-Curve/Hollywood)
