Ariana Grande’s “One Last Time” leads a list of three additions to the top 40 of the official Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.

After reaching #46 last week, Grande’s new single flies into the #28 position with help from the week’s fifth-greatest airplay gain. “One Last Time” commanded 1,724 plays (+1,264) during the February 8-14 tracking week.

Tori Kelly’s “Nobody Love” also reaches the top 40 this week. The song, which is iHeartRadio’s latest “On the Verge” pick, grabs the #34 position on the strength of its 1,341 weekly spins.

While it grabs a lower position on the chart, Kelly’s “Nobody Love” gets there courtesy a greater week-over-week spin gain than the Grande tune. Up 1,282 spins this week, “Nobody Love” represents the pop format’s fourth-greatest airplay gainer.

Sam Smith’s “Lay Me Down” is the third of the week’s three Top 40 newcomers. Spun 924 times this week, it earns the #39 position.
