Tove Lo’s “Habits” Gets Higher at Alt Radio, “Get Better” Nears Top 5

While its growth rate is not accelerating, Tove Lo’s “Habits (Stay High)” continues to ascend up Mediabase’s rolling alternative airplay chart.

According to the chart, “Habits” was the alternative format’s 29th-most-played song for the seven days ending May 16. Benefiting from its inclusion in large market rotations, it ranks even higher for audience. Its estimated impression count of 1.45 million was alternative radio’s 26th-largest.

Still on the rise (albeit not yet on an accelerated rise), “Habits” should face no difficulty advancing in the top twenty.
