ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (September 29, 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: we find some fast adds for Travis Scott‘s fast food, which certainly helps to nourish the Top 40 panel. Let’s add ’em up:

A LOT FOR SCOTT: Travis Scott’s “Franchise”, a collaboration with Young Thug and M.I.A., is the week’s Most Added song at the Top 40 format with 56 stations on impact. It earns an additional 60 adds at the Rhythmic format and 63 on the Urban report.

The rest of the top four also consists of new entries: Bastille‘s “Survivin'”, which earned a third place finish at both the Alternative and Hot AC formats, was a survivor and started in second place here with 28 adds in its first week. Why Don’t We‘s “Fallin'” took the third position with 26 stations this week, just six hours after the tune was released. Look for it to score even more action during next week’s session, when it officially impacts at this format. Finally, Ali Gatie and Alessia Cara‘s collaboration “Welcome Back” was welcomed solidly by the Top 40 panel, settling in fourth place with 25 adds from the panel.

Charting singles from Madison Beer, Sam Smith and Zoe Wees returned to the top ten on the adds report this week.

Next week: the aforementioned Why Don’t We, as well as Dua Lipa, will be falling into place on the log with plenty of new adds.

1. TRAVIS SCOTT featuring YOUNG THUG & M.I.A., “Franchise” (Cactus Jack/Epic)
2. BASTILLE, “Survivin'” (Republic)
3. WHY DON’T WE, “Fallin'” (Signature Ent./Atlantic)

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (September 22, 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 and Sam Smith witness some triple-digit love at the Top 40 format, but which of their diamonds is the jewel of the panel? Let’s add ’em up:

O “HOLY” FIGHT: The race was tight for the week’s Most Added single, but in the battle of the one-word titles, “Holy” found the faith to blast past “Diamonds”. Bieber and Chance The Rapper‘s new collaboration together secured 165 stations on impact, just ahead of Smith’s still impressive 145. The pair of pop winners are already well into the top 40 at this format and should continue to make some moves through the fall. On Monday, “Diamonds” snuck ahead of “Holy” to become the Most Added track at the Hot AC format, but the top spot on today’s report at the Rhythmic format went to “Holy”.

Last week’s top song, Marshmello and Demi Lovato‘s “OK Not To Be OK”, settled for third place with 29 more adds this week.

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

We’ll see you next week for more adds action!

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (September 6, 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. Hope you’re enjoying the long weekend! It’s a super sugary one at the format. Here’s what’s popping this week:

“SUGAR” LANDS: Harry Styles holds at #1 on the Top 40 radio chart for a sixth week with “Watermelon Sugar”, still more than 1,900 spins ahead of Lewis Capaldi‘s “Before You Go” at #2. The tune also climbs from 5-4 on the Hot AC chart. Some stations are beginning to add “Falling” from the Fine Line album, though it has not yet been confirmed as the next U.S. single.

Get out your vacuums: with three titles headed to recurrent status and several other releases collapsing in airplay, there are five new tracks in the top 40 this week. Leading things off, Calvin Harris and The Weeknd make a move from 47-31 with “Over Now”. It’s their 21st and 15th top 40 hits to date, respectively. Landing at #34 is the first top 40 entry for the act BLACKPINK, “Ice Cream”, a collaboration with Selena Gomez. This is her 20th top 40 hit as a solo artist. After several weeks of landing just outside the top 40, newcomer Zoe Wees climbs from 41-37 with “Control”, her first time in the region. The final two entries are performed by acts who score their second top 40 singles at the format: Saweetie rises from 42-39 with “Tap In”, as Regard and RAYE are up from 44-40 with “Secrets”. “Tap” is a current top five smash on the Rhythmic and Urban charts, while “Secrets” recently led the Dance chart.

It’s also really busy in the top 50 this week: Conan Gray leads things off at #46 with “Heather”, which could become his second top 40 entry here. It’s already climbing in the top 40 on the Hot AC chart. With their recent #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion start at #48 with “WAP”, a top ten hit on the Rhythmic chart that’s just below the region at Urban radio on this week’s update. Joel Corry and MNEK are atop the Dance chart once again with “Head & Heart”, which lands at #49 on the Top 40 chart. Finally, with a song that went viral on the video app TikTok, Claire Rosinkranz debuts at #50 with “Backyard Boy”.

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.
