Update: Charli XCX’s “Boom Clap” rises to #24 on the Monday edition of Mediabase’s rolling Top 40 airplay chart. Avicii’s “Addicted to You,” meanwhile, falls to #41 as Chris Brown’s “Loyal (featuring Lil Wayne)” slides up to #40.

Mediabase’s updated weekly airplay report is now available, and it confirms Charli XCX’s “Boom Clap” is one of the Top 25 songs on pop radio.

The revised version of the chart, which purges some aging, declining songs from the calculation, lists the singer-songwriter’s breakthrough solo effort as the format’s 25th-most-played song for the week ending June 28.

The song garnered 2,675 weekly spins on the pop format, which represents a week-to-week gain of 1,362. Only MAGIC!’s #5 “Rude” (+1,917), Maroon 5’s #15 “Maps” (+1,869), Nico and Vinz’ #3 “Am I Wrong” (1,833), Ariana Grande’s #1 “Problem (featuring Iggy Azalea)” (+1,370) and Sam Smith’s #8 “Stay With Me” (+1,364) enjoyed larger gains over the measured period.

Charli XCX’s “Boom Clap,” which has ranked as the format’s second-most-added song for two consecutive weeks, scored 15.96 million impressions for the week ending June 28.

Other noteworthy weekly movers:

— Maroon 5’s “Maps” rises to #15.

— Displaced by Demi Lovato’s “Really Don’t Care (featuring Cher Lloyd)” on Sunday morning’s rolling chart, KONGOS’ “Come With Me Now” jumps back into the Top 20 at #19. The Demi Lovato track rises to #18. Jennifer Lopez’ “First Love” also reclaims a Top 20 spot at #20.

— Tiesto’s “Wasted (featuring Matthew Koma)” joins Charli XCX’s “Boom Clap” in reaching the Top 25 this week. It hits #24.

— AJR’s “I’m Ready” is no longer rising at a rapid rate, but it nonetheless manages to jump to #30 on the chart.

— Florida-Georgia Line’s “This is How We Roll (remix featuring Jason DeRulo),” which debuted in the Top 40 this weekend, rises to #37 on the updated chart. Echosmith’s “Cool Kids” improves to #38, while The Madden Brothers’ “We Are Done” (#39) and Avicii’s “Addicted to You” (#40) debut in the Top 40. The latter song features uncredited vocals from Audra Mae.

— Of the songs ranked between #41 and #50, Kiesza’s #49 “Hideaway” is the fastest gainer. Its weekly spin count of 378 represents a gain of 235. It officially impacts Top 40 radio this week alongside the aforementioned “We Are Done” and Meghan Trainor’s “All About that Bass.”
