Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” Reaches Top 10 at Adult Contemporary Radio

While Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” has peaked at the pop, hot adult contemporary and rhythmic radio formats, it continues to advance at adult contemporary.

This week, it enters the format’s Top 10.

Spun ~1,304 times during the August 9-15 tracking week (+72), “Bad Blood” rises one place to #10 on Mediabase’s AC airplay chart.

“Bad Blood” is the fourth Top 10 AC hit from Swift’s “1989.” Previous singles “Shake it Off,” “Blank Space” and “Style” all ultimately reached #1.

“Style” still holds a Top 10 position on the AC airplay chart. It claims #6 thanks to ~2,082 tracking week spins (+4).

“Bad Blood” is the chart’s lone addition to the Top 10. Walk the Moon’s “Shut Up and Dance” retains the top spot.
