Spun more than twice as frequently during the June 21-27 tracking week as it was during the June 14-20 period, ZZ Ward’s “Love 3X” officially enters the Top 60 at hot adult contemporary radio.

Up twenty five places, “Love 3X” grabs the #60 spot on this week’s Mediabase Hot AC listing. It received 94 plays (+59) during the aforementioned June 21-27 tracking period.

“Love 3X” appears on Ward’s upcoming album “This Means War.” A follow-up to 2012’s “Til the Casket Drops,” the album arrives on September 18.

— “Love 3X” is one of three new additions to the Top 60 at Hot AC radio.

Also new to that territory is Kaya Stewart’s “In Love With a Boy.” Already a Top 40 hit at pop, the teenage artist’s debut single appears at #52 on this week’s official Mediabase Hot AC listing. Up eleven places, it received 132 weekly spins (+37).

Matt Nathanson’s “Gold in the Summertime” also enters the Top 60 this week. Spun 112 times (+22) during the most recent tracking week, the song rises seven places to a new peak of #57.
