ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (July 7, 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: Trevor Daniel and Selena Gomez are the life of the pop party, as their hit duet is still hot at the format. Let’s add ’em up:

BLAST FROM THE “PAST”: The top two titles on the usual adds report remain in the same order as last week, with Daniel and Gomez’s “Past Life” ranking in first place with another 68 adds, while Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo‘s “Savage Love” scores with an impact week of 50 more stations, good for the runner-up position. The two songs jumped into the top 40 on this past weekend’s published chart with ease and should continue to fly through the end of the summer.

The biggest new entry to the top five is Ava Max‘s “Kings & Queens”, which scores 28 stations on impact for a third place finish. A difference of one add separated it from the Topic and A7S collaboration called “Breaking Me”, which landed in fourth.

Charting singles from Cyn, Jack Harlow and Sia returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap!

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (July 5, 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. The temperature is hot and the songs of the summer are sizzling, so here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

ANOTHER JULY WEEKND: With a small drop in airplay vs. last week, The Weeknd‘s big hit “Blinding Lights” is launching all kinds of fireworks at the Top 40 format, as it easily earns a sixth nonconsecutive week at the top. The multi-format smash also leads the Hot AC chart for an eighth week. Will it extend its run at both formats by next Sunday? Stay tuned.

Two big collaborations debut in the top 40 on this week’s survey: the higher of the two, Trevor Daniel and Selena Gomez‘s “Past Life”, bolts onto the entire chart way up at #29. It’s the second top 40 entry for Daniel, who’s still on the rise from 4-2 with “Falling”, and the 19th solo chart hit for Gomez. Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo‘s “Savage Love” also has an impressive start at #38, marking their first and 21st top 40 singles at the format, respectively. Jawsh 685’s original instrumental tune went viral on the video platform TikTok earlier this year.

More collaborations are also making themselves known in the top 50 this week: Kygo and OneRepublic‘s “Lose Somebody”, rising through the top 30 on the Hot AC chart, wins a Top 40 debut at #44, as Regard and Raye‘s “Secrets” has a quieter start at #49.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (June 21, 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. Writing about music and radio charts at the moment is a bit strange, but for petition and donation resources in the fight against racial inequality in our country, please go to this website and do what you can. Here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

INTENTIONAL CHANGES: Scoring his eighth #1 hit on the Top 40 chart, Justin Bieber lands at the top spot with the Quavo-assisted “Intentions”, up from 3-1. The track comes from his most recent album Changes, a former #1 set on the Billboard 200 chart that also gave us a very quick #11 entry from January in “Yummy”. The collaboration also reaches the top five (up 6-5) at the Hot AC format this week.

After a crazy week last time around, there’s much smaller action to talk about in the lower rungs of the chart. Moving into the top 40 this week, Kelsea Ballerini and Halsey‘s “The Other Girl” leaps from 42-39. The collaboration becomes their second and 15th top 40 hits, respectively. Sneaking into the top 50 ahead of its impact date later this month, “Go Crazy” from Chris Brown and Young Thug launches at #50. The song currently sits in the top ten on both the Rhythmic and Urban charts.
