Nicki Minaj’s “The Night is Still Young” continues to surge at pop radio. After surging to #28 on last week’s edition of the Mediabase pop airplay chart, the new “Pinkprint” single rises to #23 on this week’s chart.

The five position rise comes thanks to the song’s ~3,399 tracking week spins. That weekly total bests last week’s count by a healthy 1,151.

“Night” appears poised to become the highest-charting pop hit from Minaj’s “Pinkprint.” “Anaconda,” which currently holds the mark, peaked at #21.

— Also new to this week’s Top 25 is Sia’s “Elastic Heart.” The enduring single, which has recently begun to catch fire, rises four places to a new peak of #25. It received ~2,806 spins during the May 10-16 tracking week.
