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.

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)

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)

Silversun Pickups pick up their first charting tune at #37 with this past week’s Most Added song at the Alternative radio format: a remake of Martika’s 1989 hit “Toy Soldiers”. Zedd and Jasmine Thompson start at #39 with “Funny”. The collaboration will be impacting at the Top 40 format on Tuesday, followed by a push at the Hot AC format next week. Lastly, a new group based in Utah checks in at #40: Blindlove‘s “I Wanna Be Okay” is headed up the Alternative chart, as it continues to spread across the panel.

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.

What a man gotta do to get the Most Added song at the format? The Jonas Brothers will let us in on the answer next Tuesday.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN (TWELVE)

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)
8. DOJA CAT, “Juicy” (Kemosabe/RCA)
9-T. JOJI & JACKSON WANG (88RISING) featuring SWAE LEE & MAJOR LAZER, “Walking” (88rising/12Tone)

This week: Arizona Zervas goes from TikTok to the top of the charts, as his new hit continues its run atop the weekly report. Let’s add ’em up:

Billie Eilish holds in second place again with “Everything I Wanted”, picking up another 33 stations. Rounding out the top three on the list, Ant Saunders secures his best week yet at the format with “Yellow Hearts”, earning 22 more stations and a third place finish.

Established hits by Blackbear, Louis Tomlinson and Tones And I are among those returning to the top ten on the report.

Ed Sheeran‘s collaboration with Camila Cabello and Cardi B, which ranks in sixth place this week and is already in the top 50 at the format, will face off against another collaboration from Iggy Azalea and Alice Chater next Tuesday. Happy Thanksgiving!

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!
