Bea Miller’s “Young Blood” now ranks as one of pop’s forty most-played songs, but its status is due to come under imminent fire from Eden xo’s “Too Cool to Dance.”
According to Mediabase, “Young Blood” garnered 1,038 spins during the week between November 6 and 12. That positions it as the pop radio format’s #40 song on the latest Mediabase rolling airplay chart.
The Eden xo tune, however, appears set to overtake “Young Blood.” While it commanded only 985 plays during that same seven day period (for a #42 ranking), it is weekly spin increase was nearly three times as great. The weekly “Too Cool to Dance” total improved by 376; “Young Blood” only added 132 spins to its count during the November 6-12 tracking period.
The recipient of 3.69 million weekly impressions, “Too Cool” already reaches a larger audience than “Young Blood.” Bea Miller’s track scored 2.48 million.
While Eden xo’s “Too Cool to Dance” seems poised to overtake “Young Blood” in time for the release of the official Mediabase airplay chart on Sunday, it is worth noting that Miller’s song would quickly receive an opportunity to return to the top 40. Currently #37, Mary Lambert’s “Secrets” (1,343 spins) appears to be in a state of freefall and will thus soon leave a Top 40 position vacant. Tinashe’s #38 “2 On (featuring ScHoolboy Q)” is also slowly fading, while several dated tracks in the 15-30 range are also quickly working their way off the chart.
