Pop radio is definitely not forgetting to play 5 Seconds of Summer’s “Amnesia.”

Thanks to a weekly spin count of 3,479, the follow-up to 5SOS’ breakthrough “She Looks So Perfect” rises to #20 on the official edition of Mediabase’s pop radio airplay chart, which measures airplay between August 10 and 16.

The spin total represented a week-over-week gain of 670, which was the 8th-largest at the pop format.

Thanks to a healthy week-over-week gain of 595, Kiesza’s “Hideaway” also reaches the Top 20 on this week’s chart. After settling for #22 last week, “Hideaway” elevates to #18 on this week’s listing.

Other moves within the Top 30 this week:

— Up to #21 on this week’s published chart, Echosmith’s “Cool Kids” is due for imminent entry into the Top 20. With Pharrell’s #19 “Come Get it Bae” in a state of free fall, “Cool Kids” might make the leap into the #20 spot on Monday’s rolling edition of the airplay chart.

— Jeremih’s “Don’t Tell ‘Em (featuring YG)” and Ingrid Michaelson’s “Girls Chase Boys” hit the Top 25 at #24 and #25, respectively.

— Tove Lo’s “Habits (Stay High)” is quickly reaping the rewards of iHeartRadio’s On the Verge program. Subject to the boost as of this past week, the buzzworthy track climbs to #28 on the weekly edition of Mediabase’s pop radio chart.

— Katy Perry’s rapidly rising “This is How We Do” also leaps into the Top 30. Fueled by the third-largest week-over-week spin gain (behind Charli XCX’s “Boom Clap” and Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass”), the Perry song rises to #29. It was #41 on last week’s published listing.

— Coldplay’s “A Sky Full of Stars” reaches #30 this week.
