Sia’s “Chandelier” and Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass” are making waves on yet another music industry chart.

The latest to play host to their upward movement is Mediabase’s official Hot Adult Contemporary airplay chart, which welcomes the two songs to its top 40 this week.

Spun 464 times over the seven days ending August 2, “Chandelier” jumps nine places to #37 on the chart. Trainor’s “Bass” leverages 391 Hot AC spins to reach #39. It was #50 on last week’s chart.

The two songs, which hit respective peaks of #9 and #28 on this week’s Billboard Hot 100, are also making major waves at pop radio. “Chandelier” is #14 on the pop format, while “All About That Bass” is up to #24. Both are among the format’s top ten airplay gainers.
