Three songs reach the Top 40 on this week’s Mediabase hot adult contemporary airplay chart.

U2’s “Song for Someone” is the highest-charting.

Up seven places, the iconic band’s single reaches #35 on this week’s chart. Its new peak position comes courtesy the 397 spins it received during the July 19-25 tracking week (+105>

Third Eye Blind’s “Everything is Easy” also pays an inaugural visit to the Top 40. Spun 298 times this week (+29), it rises five places to #38.

Tori Kelly’s “Should’ve Been Us” claims the last available spot on the chart. The song, which is already in the Top 20 at pop radio, grabs Hot AC’s #40 spot on the strength of 270 weekly spins (+31). It was #44 last week.
