X Ambassadors’ “Renegades” Scores a Top 30 Position at Pop Radio

X Ambassadors (NBC)

X Ambassadors’ “Renegades,” which reached #1 at the alternative and Triple A formats and its currently inside the Top 10 at Hot AC, continues to gain ground at pop.

This week, that gain comes in the form of a five-position jump to #29 on Mediabase’s pop radio airplay chart. The product of ~2,529 spins during the September 6-12 tracking week (+870), the position marks the song’s inaugural appearance inside the Top 30.

“Renegades” is the only new addition to that portion of this week’s pop chart. Alessia Cara’s “Here” does, however, re-enter the Top 30 last week.

After slipping back to #31 on last week’s chart, “Here” returns to its #28 peak this week. It received ~2,556 weekly plays (+281).
