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.

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 (November 24, 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. “Good” times are ahead on the pop survey… are you ready for the latest top bops in the radio universe? Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

“GOOD” STUFF: It’s been a big breakout year for Lizzo and it just keeps getting better. This week, she earns her second #1 single on the Top 40 survey with “Good As Hell”, up 2-1. The multi-format hit also jumps from 8-7 and 18-15 on the Rhythmic and Hot AC radio lists, respectively. With a slow holiday week on the horizon, it should easily earn a second week at the top.

From TikTok to top 40 success, newcomer Arizona Zervas soars onto the survey all the way up at #33 with “Roxanne”, which also jumps right into the top 30 on the Rhythmic list. Another single that’s also been developing on the video app is “Make You Mine” by the new trio PUBLIC, which makes its entry with a move from 41-38. Zedd and Kehlani‘s “Good Thing” jumps from 50-39 on the chart, giving the two performers their 15th and fourth top 40 entries, respectively. Finally, up from 46-40, Louis Tomlinson takes “We Made It” into the region, earning him his third solo top 40 hit outside of One Direction.

Billie Eilish, who already appears in the top 20 with “All The Good Girls Go To Hell”, is in at #43 with “Everything I Wanted”. The tune was released as a one-off single last week and does not appear on her current studio album. “Checklist” checks in at #47 for the first collaboration by MAX and Chromeo, as Ed Sheeran, Camila Cabello and Cardi B are headed “South Of The Border” and into the #48 position. The latter collaboration impacts at the format in early December. It also enters the Hot AC chart at #49.

Have an amazing Thanksgiving from PGTC!

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (November 19, 2019)

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: Arizona Zervas takes his musical map and leaps to the top of the report, but there’s plenty of other action in the top ten. Let’s add ’em up:

ARIZONA ROX THE TOP: After three years of releasing songs, format newcomer Arizona Zervas recently leapt up the sales and streaming charts with his breakout hit “Roxanne”, which now becomes this week’s Most Added single at the Top 40 format. A week ahead of its official impact date, the smash cruises in with 71 stations, while scoring another 40 stations at the Rhythmic format. At this point, it’s pretty clear that the song will make a strong top 40 entry by the weekend, though we’ll have to see how high it goes.

Billie Eilish settles into the runner-up position with 34 stations for “Everything I Wanted”. She also earns a second place finish at the Alternative format with another 15 stations there. It appears that this tune will be able to chart concurrently with “All The Good Girls Go To Hell”, which recently entered the top 20 on the pop radio survey.

Established hits by Blackbear, Dua Lipa and Travis Scott are among those returning to the top ten on the report this week.

Beyond Zervas’s release, no other songs are currently listed as impacting next week, though that will likely change soon.

1. ARIZONA ZERVAS, “Roxanne” (Columbia)
2. BILLIE EILISH, “Everything I Wanted” (Darkroom/Interscope)
3-T. BLACKBEAR, “Hot Girl Bummer” (Beartrap/Alamo/Interscope)
3-T. MAX featuring CHROMEO, “Checklist” (The Orchard)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (November 17, 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 usual Post is ready to go, with plenty of fun facts from the pop survey. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

FULL CIRCLE MOMENT: Post Malone‘s “Circles” is the shape of this week’s #1 single at the Top 40 format, climbing from #2. It’s his fourth chart-topper to date and his second so far this year; “Wow” led the list for a week in June. Meanwhile, “Circles” is just outside the top ten on the Hot AC (#11) and Rhythmic (#12) radio charts this week. At this point, it’s unclear if the song will emerge at the top for a second week, as Lizzo‘s surging “Good As Hell” (up 4-2) could easily snatch the throne away.

Travis Scott‘s “Highest In The Room” leads three new top 40 entries on the list, as it rises from 44-36 to become his eighth top 40 hit at the format. Scott also appears as a featured artist on Post Malone‘s “Take What You Want”, which moves from 38-35. Going up from 42-38, Loud Luxury and Bryce Vine score their second and third top 40 songs, respectively, with “I’m Not Alright”. The single has already reached the top 20 on the Hot 100 in the duo’s native Canada. Charlie Puth is also moving in the right direction with his tenth top 40 entry, as “Mother” climbs from 45-40. It’s one spot higher on the Hot AC chart, giving Puth his ninth top track at that format.

This week’s top 50 action is led by One Direction member Louis Tomlinson‘s new single, “We Made It”, which debuts at #46. A new collaboration by the Black Eyed Peas and J Balvin is getting into the rhythm at #48. “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)”, which is featured on the soundtrack to the upcoming movie Bad Boys For Life, marks the band’s first tune on the pop chart in just over eight years. Lindsey Stirling and Elle King enter at #49 with “The Upside”, giving the former her first entry at the format, while Zedd and Kehlani have a “Good Thing” going at #50.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (November 12, 2019)

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: Zedd and Kehlani earned the strongest results of any impacting tune on the report, but does their good thing endure at the top? Let’s add ’em up:

ONE “GOOD” EVENING: After a tight race for most of the day, Zedd and Kehlani’s “Good Thing” edged ahead at the end with a nice first week total of 41 stations, just a handful of adds ahead of some established hits: Tones And I‘s “Dance Monkey” (40) and Dua Lipa‘s “Don’t Start Now” (38). “Good” is already racing towards the top 50 and will probably get there in the next few days. A spot lower than Lipa is another impacting record, “RITMO (Bad Boys For Life)” by the Black Eyed Peas and J Balvin. It secures that fourth place finish with 35 stations on impact. The collaboration earned an additional 16 adds at the Rhythmic format, picking up the same rank of fourth place.

Elsewhere, MAX and Chromeo tied for fifth place on the log with two dozen stations adding “Checklist” this week. Recent singles from acts like Kesha and Louis Tomlinson are among the titles extending their run in the top ten.

There’s a “Sugar” rush coming next week on behalf of BROCKHAMPTON, who impact at the format for the first time.
