It took just one day of airplay for “Bang Bang” to become one of the week‘s Top 40 songs at pop radio.

According to Mediabase, the Jessie J + Ariana Grande + Nicki Minaj track garnered a whopping 1,288 spins in its first day of pop radio airplay. That instantly sent the song to #39 on the publication’s airplay chart, which is based on spins for the seven days ending July 29.

From an audience perspective, the debut was even more impressive. The song’s estimated audience count of 13.50 million was the format’s 22nd-largest. Since audience informs the Billboard version of the airplay chart, “Bang Bang” is on track for a monster debut on next week’s edition of that chart.

“Bang Bang” was the week’s most-added track at pop and rhythmic radio by a considerable margin.
