R. City’s “Locked Away (featuring Adam Levine),” which has already reached #1 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart, this week becomes the leader on Mediabase’s corresponding pop radio airplay listing.

Spun approximately ~17,281 times during the September 27-October 3 tracking week (+962), “Locked Away” completes its ascent to the top of the chart. It was #2 last week.

In reaching #1, “Locked Away” brings an end to the three-week reign of Selena Gomez’ “Good For You (featuring A$AP Rocky).” That song slips to #3 this week (~14,506 spins, -2,238).

The Weeknd’s soaring “The Hills” rockets into the #2 spot. The song, which rises three places from last week’s position, scored ~15,968 weekly plays (+2,633).

Justin Bieber’s “What Do You Mean?” (#4, +4 | ~14,250, 2,777) and Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” (#5, +4 | ~13,805, +2,630).

With respective week-over-week spin gains of 2,777, 2,633 and 2,630, “What Do You Mean?,” “The Hills” and “Wildest Dreams” rank as this week’s three greatest airplay gainers.
