Iggy Azalea’s “Black Widow,” Big Data’s “Dangerous” Hit Top 40 at Hot AC

Pop radio’s number two song is beginning to gain some steam at the hot adult contemporary format.

Iggy Azalea’s “Black Widow (featuring Rita Ora),” that song, rises to #37 (+5) on Mediabase’s official Hot AC airplay chart this week. It secures the spot on the strength of the 446 spins it received during the October 5-11 tracking period.

Also new to the Top 40 at Hot AC is Big Data’s former alternative number one “Dangerous (featuring Joywave).” The crossover track rises to #40 (+3) on the strength of 357 weekly spins.

Thanks to some chart cleanup, 5 Seconds of Summer’s “Amnesia,” which actually endured an airplay decline at the format this week, bounces back into the Top 40. It advances two places to #39 on the official chart.
