ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (July 6, 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: Dua Lipa gets a whole lot of love again for her latest radio single. Let’s add ’em up:

“LOVE” FOR LIPA: After starting off with 49 early adds and a third place finish last Tuesday, Dua Lipa took over the top spot on the adds report this week with 56 more stations for “Love Again”, the new single from the Future Nostalgia album. The song entered the chart at #37 on the most recent update last weekend. It’s also picking up some minor airplay at the Hot AC and Rhythmic radio formats, though it hasn’t impacted at either of them yet.

Watch out for new and emerging singles from Trinidad Cardona and Maroon 5: the former and his “Dinero” tied for third place with 20 stations, thanks in part to its viral success on TikTok, while the latter picked up another 15 stations for their “Lost”, landing in fifth place.

Charting singles from Nic D, Tai Verdes and Tones And I returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

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

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. DUA LIPA, “Love Again” (Warner)
2. DOJA CAT featuring THE WEEKND, “You Right” (Kemosabe/RCA)
3-T. TATE MCRAE x KHALID, “Working” (RCA)
3-T. TRINIDAD CARDONA, “Dinero” (Run-It-Up/Island/Republic)
5-T. MAROON 5, “Lost” (222/Interscope)
5-T. TONES AND I, “Cloudy Day” (Bad Batch-Elektra/EMG)
7-T. NIC D, “Fine Apple” (Republic)
7-T. TAI VERDES, “A-O-K” (Last Nite/Arista)
9. GIVĒON, “Heartbreak Anniversary” (Not So Fast/Epic)
10. CHEAT CODES featuring TINASHE, “Lean On Me” (Further.)

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.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 23, 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 your butter-flavored bounce up the pop radio chart, here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

LIFE’S A PEACH: Justin Bieber scores a second week at #1 on the Top 40 chart with Daniel Caesar and GIVĒON-assisted “Peaches”. The collaboration also remains atop the chart at the Rhythmic format for a second week.

Five new singles reach the top 40 this week, with the latest single from BTS leading the way with a high debut at #27. “Butter” is their eighth top 40 hit at the format, six of which were credited for their full run and the seventh coming last year when “Savage Love” hit the top spot for Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo in a remixed form. With a likely #1 album coming in Sour next week, Olivia Rodrigo leaps into the top 40 at #36 with “Good 4 U”, her third chart hit from the set. Newcomers Mimi Webb and Sara Kays lift into their top 40 with their first hits to date, respectively: the former’s “Good Without” is up from 44-38, while the latter’s “Remember That Night?” rises from 41-39. Finally, up 45-40 this week, NF returns with his fifth top 40 hit at the format in “Just Like You”.

In the top 50, we have another three entries: at #42, Majid Jordan swims onto the pop list with “Waves Of Blue”. At #45, it’s Marshmello and the Jonas Brothers with “Leave Before You Love Me”, which impacts at both the Hot AC and Top 40 formats this week. Finally, at #49 on the list, Cheat Codes and Tinashe are in with “Lean On Me”, which is unrelated to the song of the same title that became a major hit for Bill Withers in 1972 and Club Nouveau in 1987.

NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of April 13, 2018

He’s back in Town.

Coming to a town near you… only the best releases by the artists you know and love. (Just make sure you spend some of your tax refund on music, okay?) Here are the albums and singles you need to check out on digital services and in stores this Friday:

JASON ALDEAN – Rearview Town (iTunes)
Riding high on the Country survey with his smash “You Make It Easy”, Aldean is looking for his fourth consecutive #1 album of the decade. Driven by pure album sales rather than extensive streaming, it could accomplish that goal, though recent chart-topping sets from Cardi B and The Weekend may provide a bit of drama along the way. Stay tuned to see what happens.

BAZZI – Cosmic (iTunes)
Streaming breakout Bazzi has crossed over to the national charts with the hit “Mine”, and his first full-length release features a selection of proven winners, along with some new material to balance it out. Given his presence in the streaming world, expect this set to produce a big album-equivalent total, making a higher debut likely.

Notable albums out this week: Breaking Benjamin‘s Ember (iTunes), Isaac Gracie‘s Isaac Gracie (iTunes), Pentatonix‘s PTX Presents: Top Pop, Vol. I (iTunes), Sofi Tukker‘s Treehouse (iTunes), Tinashe‘s Joyride (iTunes)

Notable EPs out this week: Emma McGrath‘s Silent Minds (iTunes), Ledger’s Ledger (iTunes), The Longshot‘s The Longshot (iTunes)
