While it did not even arrive until the fifth day of the September 13-19 tracking period, Ellie Goulding’s “On My Mind” still received enough airplay to score a Top 40 position on this week’s Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.
Spun 1,873 during its three days of availability, “On My Mind” debuts at #31 on this week’s chart.
The effort was not without assistance. As part of an iHeartRadio “World Premiere” promotion, Goulding’s new single received hourly airplay from the iHeart network of pop stations on its first day of release.
Still, the airplay it received during the two subsequent days and the general enthusiasm over its release bodes well for its ability to keep climbing the chart moving forward.
— “On My Mind” is one of five additions to this week’s Top 40. Major Lazer’s “Powerful” (#27), Selena Gomez’ “Same Old Love” (#38), Nicky Jam & Enrique Iglesias’ “El Perdon” (#39), and Drake’s “Hotline Bling” (#40) also arrive this week.
