Major Lazer’s “Cold Water (featuring Justin Bieber & MØ),” which debuts at #28 on the Mediabase pop airplay chart, earns Top 60 positions at both rhythmic and hot adult contemporary.

“Cold Water” received 241 rhythmic spins and 111 Hot AC spins during the July 17-23 tracking week. The tallies respectively position “Cold Water” as the Mediabase rhythmic panel’s #53 song and the Mediabase Hot AC panel’s #59 song.

Twenty six rhythmic stations and twenty four Hot AC stations contributed tracking week airplay. As “Cold Water” did not officially arrive until July 22, that airplay was all earned during the final two days of the tracking period.
