Iggy Azalea’s “Black Widow (featuring Rita Ora)” is up to #4 on Mediabase’s rolling pop radio chart, and it will reach #3 before the official chart goes to print Sunday evening.
The song, which is the follow-up to Azalea’s multi-format smash “Fancy,” claimed 13,505 pop radio spins during the period between September 19 and September 25. That total allowed it to leapfrog Ariana Grande’s “Break Free (featuring Zedd),” which received 13,475 spins during that period.
With 91.17 million impressions during that window, “Black Widow” claimed an even more dominant advantage on the audience metric. “Break Free” received 85.33 million impressions between September 19 and September 25.
Still aggressively rising, “Black Widow” is projected to claim the #3 position by Saturday’s rolling chart (which measures airplay between September 20 and 26). Charli XCX’s current #3 “Boom Clap,” which maintains an advantage of just 65 spins on the latest rolling chart, is losing airplay at a rate of more than 300 spins per day.
