RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (October 10, 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. The spot for fresh faces and delightful debuts is looking super, so let’s check out what’s popping at the format this week:

THE GIFTED KID: Once again, the dynamic duo of The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber earn a sixth week at #1 on the Top 40 chart with “Stay”. The collaboration is also the new #1 song at the Hot AC format this week, moving up two spots from last week.

TikTok star and singer Nessa Barrett lifts from 44-38 with her second top 40 hit at the format, “I Hope Ur Miserable Until Ur Dead”, taken from her recent EP titled Pretty Poison. The Anxiety (the duo of Willow and Tyler Cole) debuts at #39 with “Meet Me At Our Spot”, their first top 40 hit as a pair and Cole individually, but the second overall for Willow. Finally, Monsta X picks up their third top 40 song for “One Day”, advancing from 43-40.

Three solo men and their latest songs are new to the top 50, led by Troye Sivan and “Angel Baby” at #46. Newcomer Vaultboy checks in at #49 with “Everything Sucks”, a viral track that spread on TikTok earlier this year, while Trevor Daniel gets inspired by some Alice Deejay and lands at #50 with “Alone”.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (September 28, 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: radio really wants Lil Nas X and the feeling is mutual. Let’s add ’em up:

“WANT” FLAUNTS: The third top 40 song from Montero is a smash on the pop airwaves, as Lil Nas X claimed the top spot on this week’s adds report at the Top 40 format. “That’s What I Want” scored 73 new stations during today’s session, which was ten adds ahead of the song that settled into the runner-up spot: “My Universe”, the buzzy collaboration from Coldplay and BTS. Given its 63 adds on impact, the tune should chart in the coming days.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (May 2, 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. This week’s pop chart is feeling more powerful than before, so here’s what’s feeling the force at the format this week:

AS “TEARS” GO BY: “Save Your Tears” is safe for a second week at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart, as The Weeknd‘s hit continues to climb in airplay at the format. The song also holds at #2 on the Hot AC chart, just behind labelmate Taylor Swift‘s “Willow”. As for next week, the pop chart is looking peachy, but we can wait on that one…

In the top 40, Regard, Troye Sivan and Tate McRae bounce from 41-32 with “You”, earning the three artists their third, sixth and second top 40 hits, respectively. After debuting on Thursday, Billie Eilish powers through the top 40 and into the #34 spot with “Your Power”. The song becomes her seventh top 40 entry and third from her upcoming album Happier Than Ever. Lifting from 43-39 on the list, AJ Mitchell makes it into the region with “Stop”, which goes ahead to become his fourth top 40 hit. Finally, TikTok stars Nessa Barrett and Jxdn enter the top 40 with the collaboration “La Di Die”, a recent top 20 single on the Alternative chart, which jumps from 48-40. This is the first top 40 song on the pop airwaves for both performers.

Newcomer Sara Kays leads another handful of releases making their first entry into the top 50 at the format, with “Remember That Night?” coming in at #46. Her song has already reached the top 15 at the Triple A format. Mooski lands at #48 with “Track Star”, which is now at #2 at the Urban format following a viral moment earlier this year. Finally, Veronika is in at #49 with “Homesick”.
