Charli XCX - Sucker

It has not moved nearly as quickly as foretold by its early traction, but Charli XCX’s “Break the Rules” is finally beginning to make a dent at pop radio.

The follow-up to multi-week #1 “Boom Clap” reaches the top thirty this week on the strength of 2,326 weekly spins.

According to Mediabase, that spin count for the November 2-8 tracking period positions “Break the Rules” at #29 on its official pop radio airplay chart. That represents a six position gain for the song, which grabbed the #35 spot on last week’s listing.

Other new top thirty entries this week include Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” (up fifteen places to #16), Hozier’s “Take Me to Church” (up nine places to #25), David Guetta’s “Dangerous (featuring Sam Martin)” (up four places to #28) and Kendrick Lamar’s “i” (up three places to #30).

New top forty entries include Ella Henderson’s “Ghost” (up six places to #35), Jessie J’s “Burnin’ Up (featuring 2 Chainz)” (up four places to #38), Selena Gomez’ “The Heart Wants What it Wants” (debuts at #39) and Trey Songz’ “Touchin’, Lovin’ (featuring Nicki Minaj)” (up four places to #40).
