Chart Notes:

  • Singer Ava Max spends a third week at #1 on my personal chart with her big hit “Kings & Queens”, as Miley Cyrus edges closer to the top spot with a 5-3 leap for “Midnight Sky”. There are a number of notable climbers within the countdown this week: the Biggest Mover title belongs to Dua Lipa with “Levitating”, which rises from 39-30 in its second week on the chart. Three new songs land in the top 40 this week, two of which are by performers who have peaked at #1 on my chart with several tracks: Shawn Mendes with “Wonder” and Bastille with “Survivin'”, debuting at #36 and #39, respectively. Mendes is looking for his fourth chart-topper, while Bastille is looking for their sixth. Meanwhile, Why Don’t We is looking to break into the top 20 once again with “Fallin'”, which bows at #40.

The #40 entry has not been officially confirmed as a radio single yet, but it’s earning some good airplay in several U.S. markets.

Zara Larsson‘s reissue of “Wow”, a 2019 track that spiked as a result of Netflix’s Work It, is the top new entry at #38. Her recent song “Love Me Land” remains in the top ten this week at #8. FINNEAS and Morgan Wallen have further debuts with “What They’ll Say About Us” and “7 Summers”, which start at #39 and #40, respectively. The former title was released several days ago, while the latter debuted in mid-August to substantial streaming success.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (August 16, 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. For all the sugary sounds, chewy chart stats and more, here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

MORE MELON, MAN: Harry Styles holds at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for a third week with “Watermelon Sugar”, down less than 100 spins vs. last week’s chart. The track is now approaching the top five on the Hot AC chart and reaches the top 20 on the AC radio list. “Watermelon” will easily score a juicy fourth week on top, as it paces well ahead of the song at #2.

This week’s top 40 action is fairly limited, with the Zedd and Jasmine Thompson collaboration “Funny” climbing into the region with a 42-40 move. This is the 16th top 40 entry for Zedd and the first for Thompson. Blasting into the top 50, Miley Cyrus has the top debut at #41 with “Midnight Sky”, taken from her upcoming She Is Miley Cyrus album. Further down, Saweetie‘s “Tap In” is in at #47, while Jeremy Zucker‘s “Supercuts” is super new at #49. Both soloists are aiming for their second top 40 entries here.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (August 2, 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. This week’s top 50 is a very fruitful one! For all the juicy details, here’s what’s popping at the format this week:

“SUGAR” RUSH: Earning his second consecutive #1 song from his sophomore solo album Fine Line, Harry Styles lifts from 2-1 on this week’s Top 40 chart with “Watermelon Sugar”. It’s just outside the top ten on the Hot AC radio chart. Meanwhile, his former #1 on both charts, “Adore You”, remains healthy in the top five: it holds at #3 at Hot AC radio and rebounds from 6-5 at Top 40.

Taylor Swift and Billie Eilish soar into the top 40 at the format with “Cardigan” and “My Future”, which start at #28 and #35 on the chart, respectively. It’s the 32nd top 40 entry for Swift and the fifth for Eilish, the latter of which impacts on Tuesday. The group Avenue Beat also enters the top 40 for the first time with “F2020”, rising from 44-40. This past spring, the three women impacted at the Country radio format with a song titled “Ruin That For Me”, but it did not chart.

Zedd and Jasmine Thompson tickle the format’s “Funny” bone with this week’s #48 debut, the new only entry in the top 50. The collaboration marks the first chart appearance for Thompson at this format.

RADIO REPORT: What’s Popping At Top 40 Radio This Week (July 27-28, 2020)

It’s time once again to analyze the airwaves and find out if your favorite new releases will be lighting up your local station’s playlist this week. Which tunes will climb to the top and which ones will hit a stop? Here are four tracks impacting this week at the Top 40 format:

JEREMY ZUCKER – “Supercuts” (Republic)
Album: TBA (2020)
Past T40 History: Last March, Zucker entered the pop chart for the first time with his song “Comethru”, which got as high as #37.

JONAS BLUE & MAX – “Naked” (Astralwerks/Capitol)
Album: TBA (2020)
Past T40 History: Blue continues to struggle here: his highest-charting track, the William Singe-assisted “Mama”, hit #31 in 2017.

MAROON 5 – “Nobody’s Love” (222/Interscope)
Album: TBA (2020)
Past T40 History: This song entered at #36 on yesterday’s published chart, extending the popular band’s history to 28 top 40 hits.

TAYLOR SWIFT – “Cardigan” (Republic)
Album: Folklore (2020)
Past T40 History: It’s not quite “Lovefool” by The Cardigans, a #1 single for six weeks in 1997, but “Cardigan” should still be solid.

Among next week’s impacting titles is a Latin lovefest from J Balvin, Dua Lipa, Bad Bunny and Tainy. Will it rule for one day and pace ahead of other emerging titles? Stay tuned.

How will these songs perform on the adds report? Let me know!

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (July 21, 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: Juice WRLD‘s posthumous collaboration with Marshmello is all gooey and toasted at the top of the adds report. Let’s have a snack and add ’em up:

WHAT’S THE JUICE?: From the recent #1 album Legends Never Die, Juice WRLD and Marshmello’s “Come & Go” easily grabs the Most Added title on this week’s Top 40 report, scoring 58 stations on impact. The single also adds another seven stations at the Alternative format from today’s log, where it lands in fifth place. Look for the tune to do well on both charts: at Top 40, it will enter the top 50 by the weekend with a high debut.

Blackbear‘s “Queen Of Broken Hearts” remains strong for its official impact date after a fourth place finish last week. The track is in with another 30 stations, giving it the runner-up spot on the report. Zara Larsson‘s “Love Me Land” also had a great start with 26 adds in its first week, good for fourth place. There was also some action on Zedd and Jasmine Thompson‘s “Funny”, landing in fifth place with 22 stations, which compliments its twelve adds and second place finish from yesterday’s Hot AC adds update.

Charting singles from Avenue Beat and Kane Brown 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 latest single from Maroon 5.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. JUICE WRLD & MARSHMELLO, “Come & Go” (Grade A/Interscope)
2. BLACKBEAR, “Queen Of Broken Hearts” (Alamo/Interscope)
3. KANE BROWN, SWAE LEE & KHALID, “Be Like That” (RCA-Interscope)
