It seizes the Hot AC throne from Ed Sheeran’s “Photograph,” which slips to #2 on this week’s listing (6,409 spins, -326).

Thanks to its 6,287 weekly spins (+326), X Ambassadors’ “Renegades” holds at #3 this week. R. City’s “Locked Away (featuring Adam Levine)” (#4, +2 | 5,572, +647) and Fall Out Boy’s “Uma Thurman” (#5, -1 | 5,511, 418) follow to complete the Top 5.
