The Weeknd [NBC]

“Can’t Feel My Face,” which holds the #1 position, is not The Weeknd’s only representative on the Mediabase rhythmic airplay chart.

His “The Hills” rockets sixteen places to reach #31 on this week’s listing.

“The Hills,” which ranked as rhythmic radio’s second-most-added song this past week, received 977 plays during the July 19-25 tracking week.

That spin count bests last week’s by a whopping 578 plays. Only Silento’s “Watch Me,” which added 600 spins to its weekly total, enjoyed a greater weekly airplay gain.

“The Hills” is one of three additions to the rhythmic radio Top 40.

Tori Kelly’s “Should’ve Been Us” also reaches that portion of the chart. Spun 630 times during the tracking week (+91), the song rises three places to #39 this week. It concurrently reaches the Top 40 at Hot AC radio and reaches a new peak of #19 on the pop airplay chart.

Up five places, Demi Lovato’s “Cool for the Summer” grabs the #40 slot. It received 629 tracking week spins (+191).
