A slight week-over-week airplay decline does not prevent Drake’s “Hotline Bling” from scoring a fifth week atop the Mediabase rhythmic radio chart.

This week’s victory comes courtesy the song’s ~7,649 tracking week spins. The mark trails last week’s total by 193 but exceeds its nearest competitor’s count by more than 1,000.

Fetty Wap’s “679,” that nearest competitor, received ~6,339 plays during the November 8-14 tracking week (-60).

Alessia Cara’s “Here” rises two places to #3 on the strength of its ~5,378 weekly spins (+440), while The Weeknd’s “The Hills” (#4, -1 | ~5,358, -388) and Justin Bieber’s “What Do You Mean?” (#5, -1 | ~5,026, +31) complete the Top 5.

— “Hotline Bling” concurrently tops the urban airplay chart for a sixth straight week. It rises to #3 at pop radio.
