Last week, Sara Bareilles’ “She Used To Be Mine” came within striking distance of the Top 40 at hot adult contemporary radio.

This week, it officially enters that portion of the Mediabase airplay chart.

Spun 421 times during the October 4-10 tracking week (+127), “She Used To Be Mine” rises three places to #38 on this week’s listing.

Bareilles’ tune is the week’s only addition to the Top 40. Three songs do, however, make inaugural appearances within the Top 50:
