The recipient of 10,791 spins between August 25 and August 31, “Bass” rises to #5 on Mediabase’s rolling airplay chart. It had reached #6 by the time the service’s official chart went to print Sunday evening.
The singer-songwriter’s breakthrough effort, which appears at #6 on Billboard’s version of the pop airplay chart, commanded 64.26 million audience impressions during the aforementioned August 25-31 tracking period.
