It missed the Top 20 on this week’s published Mediabase airplay chart and is unlikely to remain there for next Sunday’s official update.
But for the time being, Rita Ora’s “I Will Never Let You Down” ranks as one of pop radio’s Top 20 songs.
According to Mediabase, “I Will Never” received 3,508 spins between August 11 and August 17. Enough to give it a three spin edge over Echosmith’s “Cool Kids,” the count earned the song a #20 ranking on Monday’s rolling pop radio airplay chart.
The song earned 15.94 million audience impressions during that August 11-17 window.
Insofar as “Cool Kids” is gaining airplay at a much more rapid pace, it will likely overtake the Ora song on tomorrow’s rolling chart. That will send “I Will Never” back to #21, and with songs like Ed Sheeran’s #22 “Don’t” and Jeremih’s #24 “Don’t Tell ‘Em (featuring YG)” all in the hunt, it will doubtfully have an opportunity to re-enter the Top 20.
Celebration will still, however, be in order for Ora. Iggy Azalea’s “Black Widow,” on which she is featured, is currently #13 at the rolling pop airplay chart and appears destined for entry into the Top 10.
