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 some big energy and bigger chart releases, let’s see what’s popping at the format this week:

LOVING IS EASY: With her fifth #1 single at the Top 40 format and her 15th week atop the chart since 2011, superstar Adele leads the list with “Easy On Me”. The song has already hit the top of the AC and Hot AC radio charts.

Of note in the top ten, Elton John and Dua Lipa move from 11-10 with “Cold Heart”. At age 74, John is now the oldest performer to have a top ten hit at the format. It’s his first song to reach the region since 1994’s “Can You Feel The Love Tonight”, which spent a total of five weeks at #3 that July and August.

In 2006, the group Cherish spent two weeks at #6 that August with “Do It To It”. This week, they return to the top 40 for the first time in 13 years with a new version of that track as remixed by producer ACRAZE. Up from 42-35, it’s his first top 40 hit and the fourth for Cherish. At last, Blxst moves from 41-38 for the Ty Dolla $ign and Tyga-assisted “Chosen”. It’s their first, ninth and eighth top 40 hits, respectively. It ranks at #1 on both the Rhythmic and Urban charts this week.

Newcomer GAYLE takes her recent viral TikTok hit into the top 50 this week, as “Abcdefu” enters at #42. The song impacts at the format on Tuesday. Next, Latto checks in at #49 with “Big Energy”, which currently appears at #6 at the Rhythmic format.
