Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” which has already soared to the top of the rhythmic and urban radio charts, will this week enter the Top 5 at pop radio.

“Hotline Bling” received 4,581 pop radio spins during the first three days of the October 25-31 tracking week. Up 19.9% from the previous week’s count, the tally earns “Hotline Bling” the #5 position on Mediabase’s building pop airplay chart.

Given its rate of growth — and its absence of an imminent threat from below — “Hotline Bling” will easily hold its ground over the final four days of the tracking week.

It will thus score a Top 5 position on Mediabase’s official pop radio chart.
