KONGOS’ “Come With Me Now” Leaps Into Top 40, MAGIC! Gets Close

One of pop radio’s most-added songs for two consecutive weeks, KONGOS’ “Come With Me Now” has officially climbed into the top 40 of Mediabase’s rolling airplay chart.

According to the April 24 edition of the chart, which covers the seven days between April 17 and 23, the former alternative number one was Top 40 radio’s 39th-most-played song. Its jump of sixteen places from last week’s position was the largest for any song currently in the Top 50.

“Come With Me Now,” the band’s breakthrough track, garnered 4.33 million Top 40 airplay impressions in the measured seven day period.

While not played as frequently as the KONGOS track, “Rude,” the breakthrough from Canadian act MAGIC!, actually garnered a larger audience. Also a new favorite of radio programmers, “Rude” scored 6.653 million impressions as the 41st-most-played pop song of the past seven days. Its ascent into the top forty is imminent.

Other songs battling for entry into the Top 40 include Afrojack’s “Ten Feet Tall (featuring Wrabel)” (#43), AJR’s “I’m Ready” (#45), My Crazy Girlfriend’s “Crazy Stupid Love” (#46), Chris Brown’s “Loyal (featuring Lil Wayne, French Montana, Too $hort or Tyga)” (#47), HAIM’s “Forever” (#48) and Sia’s “Chandelier” (#49).

The top of the chart continues to be ruled by John Legend’s “All of Me.” Notable gainers near the Top 40 airplay chart’s peak include Justin Timberlake’s “Not a Bad Thing” (up to #5), American Authors’ “Best Day of My Life” (up to #7), Avicii’s “Hey Brother” (up to #9), Paramore’s “Ain’t it Fun” (up to #11) and Ed Sheeran’s “Sing” (up to #16).

Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy (featuring Charli XCX)” and Katy Perry’s “Birthday” also enjoyed big gains this week. They rose to respective airplay rankings of #23 and #28.
