The latest Mediabase/CMM callout report tracks listener response to 32 active pop radio singles.
Of those thirty two, Charlie Puth’s “Marvin Gaye (featuring Meghan Trainor)” possesses the third-most-favorable reaction.
The song holds a net positive score of 43.5%. Only Ed Sheeran’s “Photograph” (52.1%) and Shawn Mendes’ “Stitches” (50.8%) are receiving a better overall reaction from pop listeners.
The song’s strong net positive score is owed to its comparative absence of a negative reaction.
Per the report, 61.1% of listeners have a positive reaction to “Marvin Gaye.” That ranks as the pop format’s thirteenth-greatest. The negative score of only 17.6%, meanwhile, is the third-lowest (or thirtieth-greatest).
Since the song’s familiarity level is only 70.1%, the “Marvin Gaye” callout marks could be subject to significant — and potentially downward — changes in the coming weeks.
At the same time, as more viewers become acquianted with the song, its modest 12.0% favorite score, which is currently pop’s lowest, could improve.
