Still rising at hot adult contemporary and finally starting to make big moves at pop radio, Ella Henderson’s breakthrough single “Ghost” receives favorable news in the weekly Mediabase airplay update.
Henderson’s “Ghost,” which was the most recent iHeartRadio “On the Verge” song at the format, rises to #15 at Hot AC on the strength of the 2,299 spins it received during the November 30-December 6 tracking period.
