Maroon 5’s “This Summer’s Gonna Hurt” Vaults Into Pop Radio’s Top 25

Maroon 5 [ABC]

A full week’s worth of airplay sends Maroon 5’s “This Summer’s Gonna Hurt” into the Top 25 at pop radio.

“This Summer’s Gonna Hurt” received approximately 4,216 pop radio spins during the May 17-23 tracking week. That earns it the #22 position on Mediabase’s official pop radio airplay chart.

Last week, “Summer” leveraged only two weeks of airplay — albeit one that included hourly airplay support from iHeartMedia’s pop stations — to debut at #35 on the official pop chart.

“This Summer’s Gonna Hurt” represents Maroon 5’s chance at a third straight pop radio #1. Previous singles “Sugar” and “Animals” both reached the format’s apex.

— Not simply a pop offering, “This Summer’s Gonna Hurt” also reaches the Top 25 at hot adult contemporary radio. After debuting at #44 last week, the song jumps to #23 on this week’s Mediabase Hot AC listing. It received ~1,457 tracking week spins.
