ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (January 14, 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: Alicia Keys and Halsey have the key records finishing in the top two. At the end of the day, it was a close one. Did the underdog succeed? Let’s add ’em up:

YOU SHOULD BE AT THE TOP: After a very tight battle for the top of the report this week, Keys’s “Underdog” narrowly edged out Halsey’s “You Should Be Sad” as the Most Added song at the Top 40 format. The former checked in with 119 stations, while the latter came in with 111. Keys, who will be hosting the Grammy Awards at the end of the month, recently scored her first chart entry at the format in seven years. Halsey, whose Manic album streets this Friday, recently peaked at #8 here with “Graveyard”.

International hit “Ride It” by DJ/producer Regard makes its first trip into the top ten this week, securing 11 adds and eighth place on the leaderboard. The song has been moving towards the top 50 for a few weeks now; we’ll see if this boost gets it in there.

Charting songs from Lewis Capaldi and Trevor Daniel are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

What a man gotta do to get the Most Added song at the format? The Jonas Brothers will let us in on the answer next Tuesday.

ALICIA KEYS – “Underdog” (RCA)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (January 12, 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 underdogs are starting off the new year on a good note… at least, that’s what pop programmers tell us at this point. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

“CIRCLES” SHAPES THE LIST: With airplay at the Top 40 format returning to normal after the usual year-end spikes and dips from special programming, the massive track atop the chart remains the same: Post Malone‘s “Circles” leads the pop list for a fifth nonconsecutive week. Can Selena Gomez‘s “Lose You To Love Me” (up 3-2) find the strength to finally reach the top next Sunday? Stay tuned.

Trevor Daniel earns his first top 40 hit at the format with “Falling”, up from 42-37. Alicia Keys also returns with her 13th top 40 hit and first in seven years, “Underdog”, which bows at #40 after some hourly airplay on Thursday. It heads for adds on Tuesday.

Labelmates Lewis Capaldi and Halsey are new to the top 50 with their respective songs, “Before You Go” at #41 and “You Should Be Sad” at #45. The latter title impacts at the format on Tuesday. Ally Brooke also reaches the top 50 with “No Good”, sliding in at #50. She’s hoping to earn her third solo top 40 entry outside of Fifth Harmony in the coming weeks.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (January 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: Justin Bieber has a very tasty Top 40 recipe for the pop audience, as the panel dishes some big add totals for the first official impact date of 2020. Let’s add ’em up:

JUSTIN CASE YOU FORGOT: Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Justin Bieber is flying up the pop chart as a collaborator on Dan + Shay‘s “10,000 Hours” and with his own solo track “Yummy”, the latter of which leads the week’s Top 40 adds report with 178 stations coming in on impact. (That’s nine stations short of clearing the whole panel.) It also led the reports at the Hot AC, Rhythmic and Urban formats, earning nearly 365 stations in its first week across all formats in North America. Back at Top 40 radio, the song will cruise into the top 20 by Sunday’s published chart and could be a serious top ten record soon after that.

After some early action at the format, Camila Cabello‘s current single, the DaBaby-assisted “My Oh My”, makes a move into the runner-up spot on the report with 104 stations on impact. The Weeknd‘s “Blinding Lights” also brightens the top three on the log with 67 stations in its first full week, as “Heartless” continues to surge towards the top ten.

Charting songs from Billie Eilish, Doja Cat and Ed Sheeran are among those returning to the top ten on this week’s report.

Following early add support for several weeks, Trevor Daniel‘s “Falling” will be the Tok of the panel when it impacts on Tuesday.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. JUSTIN BIEBER, “Yummy” (Def Jam)
2. CAMILA CABELLO featuring DABABY, “My Oh My” (Syco/Epic)
3. THE WEEKND, “Blinding Lights” (XO/Republic)
4. ED SHEERAN featuring CAMILA CABELLO & CARDI B, “South Of The Border” (Atlantic)
5. LEWIS CAPALDI, “Before You Go” (Capitol)
6. TREVOR DANIEL, “Falling” (Alamo/Interscope)
7. BILLIE EILISH, “Everything I Wanted” (Darkroom/Interscope)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 22, 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 ho-ho-hot stats may be slowing down a bit temporarily, but there’s still plenty to talk about. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

CIRCLING BACK AROUND: Five weeks ago, it was the #1 song at the format. Now, it’s back at the top. Post Malone‘s “Circles” leads the list for the second nonconsecutive week. The global hit remains at #8 on the Hot AC radio survey, with additional action at several other formats.

Ant Saunders leads a pack of three new songs in the top 40 this week, climbing from 44-38 with “Yellow Hearts”. It’s his first tune to reach the region. The collaboration “Walking”, off the most recent compilation from record label 88rising, climbs from 45-39. It’s the first top 40 entry for its two lead performers, Joji and Jackson Wang, the fourth solo for Swae Lee and the eighth for Major Lazer. Finishing it off, the brothers known as AJR move from 42-40 with their fourth top 40 song at the format, “Dear Winter”.

The only new top 50 debut this week is the emerging TikTok hit “Falling”, the first charting song for Trevor Daniel, which lands at #50. It should reach the top 40 sometime next month.
