Drake’s “Hotline Bling” Rockets Into Top 60 at Pop Radio

Already a Top 15 hit at rhythmic radio, Drake’s “Hotline Bling” is beginning to gain traction at pop.

Spun 412 times during the September 6-12 tracking week (+282), “Hotline Bling” ranks as the Mediabase pop panel’s #51 song.

It was #70 last week.

“Hotline Bling” is one of four additions to pop radio’s Top 60. OMI’s “Hula Hoop” (#55), Selena Gomez’ “Same Old Love” (#56), and Halsey’s “New Americana” (#60) are also new to that territory.
