RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (December 19, 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. For a weekend full of women and other wonderous song titles, let’s see what’s popping at the format this week:

FREEZE WITH EASE: As the annual holiday freeze settles in, Adele sits at #1 on the Top 40 chart for a third week with “Easy On Me”. At the Hot AC radio format, the international hit leads the chart for a fifth week. Her latest album 30 is expected to sell well through the holiday season and into 2022, as follow-up “Oh My God” continues its ascent in the top 20 at both formats.

The collective 88rising and singer BIBI climb from 42-37 with “The Weekend”, their second and first top 40 hits, respectively. TWICE has their first top 40 single with “The Feels”, as the girl group jumps from 41-39 this week. Finally, Latto hits the jackpot and climbs from 44-40 with “Big Energy”. Her first pop hit is already performing well at the Rhythmic (#4) and Urban (#8) radio formats.

This week’s top 50 entries have a feminine touch: chart regular Doja Cat enters at #41 with “Woman”, while format newcomer Emmy Meli lands at #47 with “I Am Woman”. Look for both songs to really take off early next year.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (October 17, 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. We have some easy selections for singles and stats, so let’s see what’s popping at the format this week:

KID ‘N PLAYS: Hovering above 19,600 plays once again this week, “Stay” spends a seventh week at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart. The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber now have the longest-running #1 song of 2021 at the pop format and that run will likely extend another week or two.

Superstar Adele soars onto the chart way up at #22 with “Easy On Me”, the lead single from her forthcoming album 30. It’s her tenth top 40 entry to date and simultaneously reaches the top 40 at four additional formats: AC, Hot AC, R&B (formerly Urban AC) and Triple A. Up from 42-31, GIVĒON scores his third top 40 song at the pop format with “For Tonight”. Moving from 41-37, “Hurricane” is the 23rd top 40 hit for Kanye West, the 20th for The Weeknd and the second for Lil Baby. The track can be found on West’s recent #1 album Donda. Finally, at #38, Kacey Musgraves achieves her first top 40 song on the Top 40 airwaves with “Justified”, which moves up from #43 last week.

Nigerian newcomer CKay debuts at #45 with his viral hit “Love Nwantiti (Ah Ah Ah)”, which is being fueled by a popular dance challenge on TikTok. Former Little Mix member Jesy Nelson comes in at #46 with the Nicki Minaj-assisted “Boyz”, which just earned a top five entry on the national survey in the United Kingdom. Next, TWICE feels their way into the #47 spot with “The Feels”, while “Chosen” is the Top 40 format’s choice at #48 for Blxst, Ty Dolla $ign and Tyga, a current top ten single on the Rhythmic and Urban radio charts.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (October 5, 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: the pop radio universe is revolving around Coldplay and BTS. Let’s add ’em up:

A UNIVERSAL REPORT: After starting in second place last week, “My Universe” earned another 38 adds this week, as Coldplay and BTS have the Most Added song at the Top 40 format. The collaboration entered at #32 on the survey this past weekend and flew to #1 on the Hot 100 update from earlier this week. Last week’s leader from Lil Nas X fell to second place, as “That’s What I Want” picked up 34 more adds.

The first track to impact at the format from the K-pop group TWICE was just behind them at 32 adds this week, with “The Feels” coming in third place. At 28 adds and a fourth place start, Trevor Daniel is in with “Alone”, which he hopes will become his second #1 hit to date.

Rounding out the top five and moving up from last week’s report, The Anxiety (the duo of Willow and Tyler Cole) secured an additional 24 adds for “Meet Me At Our Spot”.
