ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (November 19, 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: Arizona Zervas takes his musical map and leaps to the top of the report, but there’s plenty of other action in the top ten. Let’s add ’em up:

ARIZONA ROX THE TOP: After three years of releasing songs, format newcomer Arizona Zervas recently leapt up the sales and streaming charts with his breakout hit “Roxanne”, which now becomes this week’s Most Added single at the Top 40 format. A week ahead of its official impact date, the smash cruises in with 71 stations, while scoring another 40 stations at the Rhythmic format. At this point, it’s pretty clear that the song will make a strong top 40 entry by the weekend, though we’ll have to see how high it goes.

Billie Eilish settles into the runner-up position with 34 stations for “Everything I Wanted”. She also earns a second place finish at the Alternative format with another 15 stations there. It appears that this tune will be able to chart concurrently with “All The Good Girls Go To Hell”, which recently entered the top 20 on the pop radio survey.

Established hits by Blackbear, Dua Lipa and Travis Scott are among those returning to the top ten on the report this week.

Beyond Zervas’s release, no other songs are currently listed as impacting next week, though that will likely change soon.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 17, 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. The usual Post is ready to go, with plenty of fun facts from the pop survey. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

FULL CIRCLE MOMENT: Post Malone‘s “Circles” is the shape of this week’s #1 single at the Top 40 format, climbing from #2. It’s his fourth chart-topper to date and his second so far this year; “Wow” led the list for a week in June. Meanwhile, “Circles” is just outside the top ten on the Hot AC (#11) and Rhythmic (#12) radio charts this week. At this point, it’s unclear if the song will emerge at the top for a second week, as Lizzo‘s surging “Good As Hell” (up 4-2) could easily snatch the throne away.

Travis Scott‘s “Highest In The Room” leads three new top 40 entries on the list, as it rises from 44-36 to become his eighth top 40 hit at the format. Scott also appears as a featured artist on Post Malone‘s “Take What You Want”, which moves from 38-35. Going up from 42-38, Loud Luxury and Bryce Vine score their second and third top 40 songs, respectively, with “I’m Not Alright”. The single has already reached the top 20 on the Hot 100 in the duo’s native Canada. Charlie Puth is also moving in the right direction with his tenth top 40 entry, as “Mother” climbs from 45-40. It’s one spot higher on the Hot AC chart, giving Puth his ninth top track at that format.

This week’s top 50 action is led by One Direction member Louis Tomlinson‘s new single, “We Made It”, which debuts at #46. A new collaboration by the Black Eyed Peas and J Balvin is getting into the rhythm at #48. “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)”, which is featured on the soundtrack to the upcoming movie Bad Boys For Life, marks the band’s first tune on the pop chart in just over eight years. Lindsey Stirling and Elle King enter at #49 with “The Upside”, giving the former her first entry at the format, while Zedd and Kehlani have a “Good Thing” going at #50.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (November 12, 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: Zedd and Kehlani earned the strongest results of any impacting tune on the report, but does their good thing endure at the top? Let’s add ’em up:

ONE “GOOD” EVENING: After a tight race for most of the day, Zedd and Kehlani’s “Good Thing” edged ahead at the end with a nice first week total of 41 stations, just a handful of adds ahead of some established hits: Tones And I‘s “Dance Monkey” (40) and Dua Lipa‘s “Don’t Start Now” (38). “Good” is already racing towards the top 50 and will probably get there in the next few days. A spot lower than Lipa is another impacting record, “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)” by the Black Eyed Peas and J Balvin. It secures that fourth place finish with 35 stations on impact. The collaboration earned an additional 16 adds at the Rhythmic format, picking up the same rank of fourth place.

Elsewhere, MAX and Chromeo tied for fifth place on the log with two dozen stations adding “Checklist” this week. Recent singles from acts like Kesha and Louis Tomlinson are among the titles extending their run in the top ten.

There’s a “Sugar” rush coming next week on behalf of BROCKHAMPTON, who impact at the format for the first time.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. ZEDD & KEHLANI, “Good Thing” (Interscope)
2. TONES AND I, “Dance Monkey” (Bad Batch-Elektra/EMG)
3. DUA LIPA, “Don’t Start Now” (Warner)
4. BLACK EYED PEAS x J BALVIN, “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)” (Epic)
5-T. BLACKBEAR, “Hot Girl Bummer” (Beartrap/Alamo/Interscope)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 10, 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. The chart veterans are having a decent time on the chart this week, but plenty of newcomers are also on the rise. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

LOVE FOUR “SOMEONE”: Lewis Capaldi‘s “Someone You Loved” narrowly beat Post Malone‘s “Circles” to pick up a fourth week at #1 on the Top 40 chart with a gap of about 140 spins. Don’t worry, Post Malone fans; he’ll definitely be topping the chart by next weekend. Meanwhile, Capaldi’s enduring smash ranks at #2 and #5 on the Hot AC and AC charts, respectively.

Dua Lipa makes a bold move with “Don’t Start Now”, leaping from 45-25 to become her ninth top 40 hit at the format. It’s only six spots away from the peak of her last charting hit, the soundtrack cut “Swan Song”, which spent two weeks at #19 in March. Kesha‘s 16th top 40 entry here jumps from 42-34 this week. “Raising Hell” also marks the first credited chart hit for Big Freedia. Climbing from 44-40 is the last of three top 40 entries on the survey: “Make It Right” by BTS and Lauv, who earn their fifth and sixth top 40 hits, respectively. This collaboration charts concurrently with Lauv’s “F**k, I’m Lonely”, a collaboration with Anne-Marie that lifts from 37-36.

Travis Scott‘s “Highest In The Room”, a former #1 song on the Hot 100, debuts at #44 this week. On the Rhythmic chart, the song bolts from 10-6. Format newcomer Isabela Merced, a young actress that’s largely known for her work with Nickelodeon, comes in at #49 with “Papi”. Lastly, AJR enters at #50 with “Dear Winter”, a song that also enters at #50 on this week’s Hot AC chart.
