RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (September 13, 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. It’s certainly OK to check out these building titles and top movers at the format. Here’s what’s popping this week:

RUNNING LOW ON “SUGAR”: Harry Styles sneaks in a seventh week at #1 on the Top 40 chart with “Watermelon Sugar”. At this time, it’s likely to be the song’s final frame at the top, as Lewis Capaldi‘s “Before You Go” (which holds at #2 again) powers up in an attempt to claim the slowest run ever to #1 at the format.

In the top 40, the reissue of Zara Larsson‘s “Wow” lifts from 41-39 to become her ninth top 40 release at the format. Dan + Shay are also on the move with “I Should Probably Go To Bed”, lifting from 42-40 and earning the duo their fourth top 40 crossover hit.

The highest debut in the top 50 is the new collaboration from Marshmello and Demi Lovato, “OK Not To Be OK”, which bows at #43. The song also lands in the top 50 on this week’s Hot AC chart. Meanwhile, popular TikTok personality Dixie D’Amelio is also new to region, as “Be Happy” starts at #47. A remix of it, which features Blackbear and Lil Mosey, was released on Wednesday. A third new song lands at #50: newcomer Tate McRae slides in with “You Broke Me First”, a streaming hit that has already made the top 40 in several countries.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (August 30, 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. Our pop plates are looking yummy again, so let’s see what’s hot at the musical market this week:

A STYLISH END TO THE MONTH: Harry Styles remains at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart with “Watermelon Sugar”, scoring a fifth sweet week at the top. The single is more than 2,800 spins ahead of the song in the #2 spot, Lewis Capaldi‘s “Before You Go”, which advances from #4. Meanwhile, “Watermelon” holds at #5 on the Hot AC chart, as it also looks to capture the top spot there.

The viral hit “Mood” puts the Top 40 panel in a great mood, as 24KGoldn and Iann Dior fly into the top 40 at #37 this week. This marks the first top 40 entry for either artist at the format. Additionally, Drake leaps from 46-39 with the Lil Durk-assisted “Laugh Now Cry Later”, giving the two performers their 31st and first top 40 hits, respectively. The collaboration lifts into the top 15 on both the Rhythmic and Urban radio charts this week.

In the top 50, Calvin Harris and The Weeknd debut at #47 with “Over Now”, while Zara Larsson‘s “Wow” steps in at #48. The former impacts at the format on Tuesday, while the latter has been accumulating adds for several weeks now.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (August 25, 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: Snap, crackle… BTS pops at the Top 40 format in a big way! Let’s add ’em up:

BEYOND THE ADDS: To no one’s surprise, BTS and their new single “Dynamite” are absolutely explosive at the Top 40 format, as the song blasts in with 171 adds on impact, their biggest opening to date so far. The track started at #32 on last week’s published chart and should fly up in the coming days, especially given all the new action on it. Activity has been limited for it at other formats since its release, though “Dynamite” has received some smaller airplay at both Hot AC and Rhythmic stations.

Landing in second place, up from tenth last week, 24KGoldn and Iann Dior also scored a huge win for “Mood”, in with 64 adds.

Recent TikTok hits from Claire Rosinkranz and Dixie D’Amelio also reached the top ten on the log this week: the latter’s track “Be Happy” landed in seventh place with 18 stations, while the former’s EP cut “Backyard Boy” started in eighth with 16.

Charting singles from AJRAva Max and Miley Cyrus returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap, including data on the Calvin Harris and The Weeknd collaboration that you may be bumping by the weeknd.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (August 18, 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: Miley Cyrus is sky high on the log with her latest tune, while the top five sees some major turnover. Let’s add ’em up:

“MIDNIGHT” ROCKS: The 80’s-inspired “Midnight Sky” by Miley Cyrus is today’s winner at the Top 40 format, as it struts into the adds report with 117 stations on impact. It also led yesterday’s report at Hot AC radio. Dan + Shay‘s “I Should Probably Go To Bed” followed in second place with 41 stations this week, so the format certainly wasn’t sleeping on it. Unsurprisingly, it finished in the runner-up position behind Cyrus on the same Hot AC log. The two releases are off to a great start on both charts.

In third place, Drake starts with 32 stations on impact for the Lil Durk-assisted “Laugh Now Cry Later”, which grabs the top spot on the reports at both Rhythmic and Urban radio this week. Zara Larsson also returns to the Top 40 report with 2019’s ‘Wow”. It rockets into fourth place with 22 stations during the session, which follows a prominent placement in Netflix’s Work It from earlier this month. (The song previously earned some unsolicited airplay at the format last summer.

Charting singles from Billie Eilish and Zoe Wees returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

We’ll see you next Tuesday for another adds recap, including data on the BTS single that’s sure to, well, explode at the format.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
